About the property

Welcome to Lake Lanier’s premiere luxury lodge resort property. This is NOT someone’s 2nd home - it is was selected, renovated and professionally designed as a top-of-the-line rental resort-style property. If you've searched around you'll see that almost every rental property has wooded, obstructed views and walks to the dock. This property sits DIRECTLY on the water with huge views from every room and steps to the private dock.

Appointed with top of the line furnishings and accommodations including 2 kitchens, stainless steel appliances, granite, hardwoods everywhere, state of the art audio and HD video entertainment system, a sunken hot tub with lake views, high-speed wireless internet, and resort touches everywhere.

Rent the ski boat with all the toys (skis, tubes, wakeboards, vests) for the perfect family vacation!

Guest Comment 1: I just cannot say enough wonderful things about this property.

We have 3 kids and wanted to have a great lake vacation in a top-end property. This place is absolutely gorgeous. Its more like a resort hotel than a vacation home. The bathrooms are incredible - the bottom shower is a work of art! Designer choices everywhere. And plenty of flat screen TVs to satisfy my husband and the boys.

The view is fantastic (everything else we looked at had blocked views) and it sits on a great part of the lake. We rented the boat which was the best. The rental came with a room full of skis and tubes and life jackets even for the kids. The kids loved being on the water and they all got to get up on the skis for the first time.

Just a gorgeous home and a wonderful vacation that we are sure to remember forever.

Thank you so much!

Guest Comment 2: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lanier Lodge. This is a beautiful property with all the comforts of home - plus some. To say it is a high-end rental is an understatement. The lodge is beautiful and fully equipped and the hot tub on the deck over looking the lake is wonderful.

We also loved the ski boat that was available for rental. We had our three children with us and they enjoyed every minute of every day on the lake. The water toy closet that was available with the boat was also amazing. We all got to ski, tube, and suma wrestle the ski line. We didn't get to wake board so we will have to go back. The kids are already asking 'how soon'.

Thanks for a terrific vacation and we hope to see you again soon. We truly had no idea while renting over the internet how great this vacation would turn out to be.

Guest Comment 3: Our vacation at the Lanier Lodge was a fantastic family experience filled with so many great memories. The house is beautifully decorated and appointed with the finest home furnishings to provide a sense of luxury and extreme comfort. We really enjoyed the outside decks both in the morning and afternoons.

Having access to your boat, the tubes,life jackets and skis during our stay really added a huge bonus to the vacation. We utilized the boat in the mornings and late afternoons for fishing and enjoyed water skiing and tubing during the day. We even had a few sunset cruises on the lake throughout the week. Watching the sunset from the boat with your beautiful house in view is really priceless!

The Lake Lanier environment is still so unspoiled by development yet is close enough to shopping and restaurants. The kitchens and dining room at your house were perfect for preparing and serving food while on vacation.'Eating in' can be a convenience after a long day playing in the lake

Why Wendy Hynes chose Dawsonville

Open floor plan, great for entertaining, steps from the dock where you can complete your lake vacation package with the rental of our 21" ski boat complete with ski vest in all sizes, skis, tubes, wake boards and more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so happy with our vacation we just had to run and post a positive review to thank you for our great vacation.

This is our 3rd rental on Lake Lanier, and this was by far the best for us. We loved the furnishings and the luxury lodge style of the home. I took notes for my decorator! Big screen TV, hot tub, grills were all perfect. And the views! Awesome!!

We couldn't get the thermostat to work at first. We called and the property owners walked us through it in 15 minutes. Back to the fun.

We also loved this part of the lake. Not crazy like parts further south! Nice coves to ski and float just outside of the property.

We'll be booking with the grandparents next year!

thank you.

Fantastic home with nice amenities however with " some assembly required"

  • 1 of 5

We have many positive memories and some areas of improvement that we would like to share to better improve the next renters experience

- receiving the entry code earlier in the day rather having to make several calls requesting it

- propane tanks being full and ready (we ran out on the first night half way through the hamburgers)

- tiki torches being full and ready (we purchased two new tanks of propane and oil)

- boat trim and gas gauge don't appear to work

- boat front safety light (red and green light) is out therefore the boat can't be legally used at night

- boat may have a small leak, the water level in the engine compartment was higher than the blower tubes thus a safety concern that the fumes couldn't be removed. I ran the bilge for several minutes to remove the water first, unfortunately draining the battery. We couldn't find a battery charger, but was able to use my own

- there's no gas can available to refill the boat, again we used our own and filled it back to what we assumed to be the correct level

- many exterior lights are out

- many of the boating accessories are in need of repair: the canopy is missing the proper hardware, the knee board strap was detached from one side, the wake board is missing its Velcro straps, one tube has a severe leak. I mended several items, but still not acceptable

- there's not a boat cover as the Operating Guide mentioned, thus it was soaked when we arrived with wet trash of cigarettes and dip canisters

- I believe that the upstairs shower has a clogged drain that could become a problem in the near future. The water can't be ran over 20 minutes before the shower fills up with water

- door ice maker in the main level refrigerator is not functional

- obviously the hot tub not working

Individually, each one of these items is not a big deal, but collectively add up. We greatly enjoyed our time, but didn't realize the additional about of effort that we would need to contribute to have the upmost enjoyable experience

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback as we strive to make the property a comfortable, relaxing and fun stay for all of our guests. It is our policy to email the guests once final payment has been made with property address and a personal access code. We have shared your feedback with the staff and have have addressed and de-clogged the upstairs shower, placed safety lights and flags in the boat. We would encourage all our guest to call on the local staff with any areas which might need addressed during their stay. We will be speaking with our cleaning staff to remind them and be sure that, in the future, the boat and home is spotless and there is always an extra propane tank. Gas cans are not kept on the property, Athens Boat Club is two coves over for fuel. We are happy that you were able to enjoy yourselves and make those positive memories and we hope to see you as a guest again at Lanier Lodge.

Great location, great house, great service!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived about 2 hours early and were promptly greeted by the property manager (Gary) who was very agreeable and thorough in presenting the property. He took me out on the lake with the boat to ensure I understood its operations and to locate the (very close) marina for refueling. The house was completely refurbished by Gary (who is a semi-retired contractor) in 2007 and it is absolutely perfect and very well maintained! Warm, cozy, well appointed with furniture and flat screen TV's, satellite service, internet, and surround sound system in the great room on the main level - not to mention over 300 movies on private media. The kitchen is very functional, and well stocked, with easy to clean granite countertops. The bedrooms are very well appointed, and more importantly, the beds are very comfortable! My octogenarian parents stated that they had not slept so well in years...but that may also be attributed to the nightly serenade of the locust and the very calm atmosphere of the North end of the lake, along with a little Bordeaux at dinner... The secluded and independent bedroom/kitchen on the 1st floor overlooks the main deck with hot tub (which was used daily...) and my wife and i loved the decor, the bathroom is spacious and the shower is simply great - while the privacy and seclusion condones romantic evenings with the proximity of a small, but very functional kitchen, allowing us those delectable midnight snacks and and cold bubbly from the fridge...We were eight total - 3 children (teenagers) and 5 adults, enjoying a rare family gathering. All had great fun and the week went way too fast - we are definitely coming back...but for two weeks next visit! I highly recommend the house, the boat, and the swimming and water temperature in years...and we lake every year in various parts of the, we intend to make Lake Lanier our summer home...BTW - shopping at supermarket is 5 minutes away (including Starbucks for those of you who love good coffee and more....)....Book in confidence and enjoy!!

Wonderful get away!

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate home...completely renovated. Property owner/manager was available and very accommodating. We felt "taken care of". Home and lake toys/boat was very organized...everything in its spot. Marina to get gas was VERY close and easy to find. It was so nice to arrive, unpack, and get on the boat. It would have taken hours to drive to a marina and rent a boat and drive a car back to the house, etc. Fabulous views. We thought home was prettier than pictures show. Also, many properties on Lake Lanier are a HIKE to the dock. This was not. Seriously a home away from home... we felt completely comfortable and will definitely rent this home and boat again. In fact, I'm already thinking about when...
