We are from Gwinnett county Georgia and wanted a second home not too far from our primary home so we could use it often. Our kids loved the water sports and bringing their friends to the lake. Family time is precious and being together at the lake makes it easier for us to spend some quality time as a family.
We owned a house on Lake Lanier a little further north before building this one. We desired a lot that wasn't as steep of a walk down to the lake, and this one fit the bill. The setting among the trees and the privacy we have at the house is perfect. No matter what the water levels are on the lake, we are able to move the dock out further so that we always have water and can get our boats in and out.
The house itself is great for couples as well as families since four of the five bedrooms have their own bathroom. It has been a wonderful house for family vacations as well as entertaining.
There are many things we love about the house. The outdoor kitchen with the fire ring is one of our favorites. No matter what time of year, we use the outdoor grill and fire ring as a place to gather. The covered decks off the back of the house are good for meals and to sit and relax with a cup of coffee. If it is raining, you can still sit and enjoy the view. The ceiling fans keep it a comfortable temperature in the warm months.
The cove where our dock is located makes a great spot to sit and watch people fish, tube or ski. It is a protected spot, yet very open without being in an area that gets knocked around. The location on the lake is convenient; we love to take the boat over to Pelican Pete's and eat and listen to music. There is always something to do and Gainesville is 10 minutes away if we want to go shopping or go to dinner.
