Lake Lanier has been the source of many family memories and this location is perfect to foster the same experiences for others.
Gated, security entrance. Rare, private boat ramp for your personal use. Boat house and Swim platform dock with amazing lake views. Wide open, spacious, and oh so comfortable home.
My daughter was graduating from UNG and we stayed in this amazing house for the graduation weekend. We had friends and family come for the graduation and this house had plenty of room for all of us. The house was clean, spacious and very comfortable. We enjoyed the fire pit and how peaceful it was outside. It is a beautiful home!!
We had a group of 14 stay at this property over MLK weekend, and we had a great time. The home has tons of space and could easily have held a handful more people. With social spots in different areas of the house, folks could easily break off to watch NFL on a big screen in one room or play board games somewhere else. The theater room was awesome with a projector, surround sound, and a ton of DVDs to watch. Just as important to us, though, was that the dining room table was enormous and we could get everyone together for meals. Only suggestions for the owners would be batteries cause some remotes were missing them, and it wasn't entirely clear where the outdoor garbage area was. Overall we had a great time and would definitely go back!
The owner charged us over $1000 for damage caused by a clog in the plumbing system that predated our arrival. We had several years of wonderful experiences when renting this property from the previous owner and regret that we'll need to look elsewhere for our future family retreats.
What an amazing getta-way retreat! You can never be too sure what to expect from a website, but this was a truly spacious home nestled in a very secluded, peaceful wooded location. If you’re looking for very nice large home that can sleep a large party and accommodate them all with full amenities quite nicely, this is your place.
The furnishings are well maintained and very clean. The kitchen is very modern and open. We had everything we needed to cook with, ample room to play games and for some of us, our solitude outdoors. The family areas and bedrooms are all very generous in size and well furnished. Honestly, it has that “home away from home” feel and we settled right it.
The cherry on top is the private boat ramp & dock. This portion of the lake was quite and very enjoyable. I highly recommend this venue! We will be back and this time, with a boat.
3 families (3 couples, 8 teenagers) stayed in this home July 25-Aug. 1. There was PLENTY of space for everyone. The bedrooms were unusually large and we felt we could have slept many more people. This is a great house for a large party. The owner was very helpful upon booking and always returned my email questions promptly etc. The pictures represent the home well, but we were disappointed with the cleanliness/condition of the home. It seems the owner does have the home cleaned after each booking and on the surface it was clean (like the toilets, sinks, sheets etc.) but there were lots of things in the home that need attention. Behind and under the beds were filthy, the walls were very dirty, lots of paint chips, leaks, shower grout dirty in spots, light bulbs out all over (house was very dark and we tried to change what we could ourselves), hard wood floors were dirty (our socks/feet were black), area rugs very dirty, musty washer, broken cabinets, kitchen was very disorganized, only 2 dishtowels, and not enough bath towels for larger parties. One TV didn't work and one only worked part of the time. We were also disappointed that we could not see the lake from the house due to the trees (the pic must have been taken in winter). It was much too buggy to use the firepit and the woods were too overgrown to safely get wood anyway. The road to the lake is steep but it is not that bad and better than steps :) The swimming dock was nice and the cove was ideal for swimming. The location of the property on the lake is perfect. The boat dock/garage is not shown in the pics for a reason. It is in a very poor state and is unsafe. A member of our party was injured getting on the dock the first day and was very lucky it was not worse. The owner was concerned and is hopefully, correcting the problem. NONE of these things kept us from having an amazing vacation (we spent most of our time on the lake). The house was the perfect layout for our group and the large kitchen was really nice since we cooked every night. We would go back again...the disappoint comes from paying $5000.00 for a house that is not immaculate. If it was a lower price, the dirt and disrepair would not be that big of a deal.
Our family spent Christmas 2015 at this charming home. The sitting room with the beautiful fireplace was a perfect setting for our Christmas tree and thirteen stockings "hung on the mantle with care." The house itself was spacious and accommodated our family (and guests) perfectly. Christmas dinner for fifteen was cooked in the well-equipped kitchen and eaten together at "the Table." Since the weather was a bit chilly and wet, we appreciated the various spaces throughout the house that allowed simultaneous movie watching, conversations, card games, pool games, naps, etc. As a Christmas gift to us, our children had Allison Mah Photography take family photos with beautiful Lake Lanier as the background - a special memory of a wonderful Christmas. Thank you.
