Dawsonville Lodge Rental Photos and Description

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 Lake Lanier

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.

Dream home

This property is beautiful and our stay was easy. We rented the boat as well and everything was ready to go when we arrived. The lake is wonderful & the house is just right for enjoying it.

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...

Great couples getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Lanier lodge. The house is completely updated and very well kept and designed. The pics and description are exactly as described. The bedrooms were perfect for the 3 couples because everyone had privacy since they are all on separate floors. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening and the boat during the day once the rain let up. The men of the group also cooked out every night on the green egg and gas grill that is on the property. We stayed right before the summer season so the dock had not been in use for awhile which meant lots of spider webs and dirt around but we would love to come back when we could enjoy the big lounge area on top of the dock and the outside deck more in the summer once it has been cleaned for use. The owner was also very helpful and provided detailed guides for everything in the house, she also helped our group of boating novice figure out how to get the boat started:) We had a blast and just recommended Lanier lodge to some friends looking for a quick weekend getaway!

A Family Reunion That Rocked

  • 5 of 5

As I entered the house I fell in love with the decor. It was rustic, but kind of contemporary. At any rate it was very easy on the eye's. The view was wonderful. a beautiful view on every level of decking. I slept on the bottom bunk bed and I have to say for a bunk bed it was very comfortable. All the other guests I was with were also so please with the accomodations. One of our guest's was disabled with CP, and she stayed on the main floor, and had access to everything. She only needed assistance with getting down to the hot tub. The highlight of the trip was the hot tub. and the view from it. Fantastic! I would also like to mention that dealing with the owner of this house was nothing short of wonderful. He was so accomodating. Just a total pleasure to deal with.
