It was perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great house, could use some TLC

  • 4 of 5

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.

Christmas at The Lake

  • 5 of 5

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.

A MOST PERFECT PLACE FOR A MOST PERFECT WEEKEND!!!

  • 5 of 5

This review is a few weeks late in coming but considering that the smiles are still glued to our faces, better late than never! Our girls group enjoyed a most beautiful spiritually enriching and inspiring weekend in the Tanner home. Our memories as well as the laughter shared there are still ever present and we all feel so blessed to have spent a weekend there together. The ambiance was so perfect for our meals, workshops, downtime, and everyone was comfortable in every way. We appreciate so much that Mr. Tanner was such a pleasure to work with and went out of his way to make this weekend work for us. From when we entered on Thursday eve until we left on sunday morn we enjoyed ourselves and appreciated all the home had to offer, be it the lake, fireplace, pool table, spacious kitchen, private drive, comfortable couch areas, theater...the list goes on. The décor and design of the home was tasteful in every way and lent itself to the warmth we so enjoyed. Del, Thank you so much for allowing us the use (rental) of your home we certainly hope to be back some time in the future. Wishing you all the best and wishing all who spend time in your lovely home much blessing!!!! We feel blessed to have been there!

Fabulous Birthday Celebration Site

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my husband's 70th birthday in this beautiful home with five other couples. I decided not to show the VBRO listing to them for the surprise factor when they walked in. That wouldn't have been a problem because this place is so spectacular that THE PICTURES DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE! Everyone had a jaw-dropping, giddy reaction the moment they arrived, saw the beautiful lake setting, and stepped into the home which we labeled "Paradise" for the weekend! My husband and several others' favorite part was the kitchen table which seated all twelve of us for meals. The kitchen was spacious and incredibly well-supplied. The three master bedrooms on the first level were comfortable and convenient for those who have trouble with the steps. I liked that there are two seating areas on the main level. The TV addicts had their place, and the talkers had another space. We watched two movies and each time we opened the door to the theatre--again the jaw-dropping giggles!! One thing the listing doesn't mention is that there is wi-fi and a fire pit. Del was wonderful to work with--very accommodating and quick to answer questions. I had my deposit back within a week. We will definitely book this place for a return visit--everyone in the group was counting the months and years until they turn 70 and can come back!!
