Why Kingsfield chose Lake Lanier

We bought the home and lived in it for 6 years enjoying the access to the lake every summer.

What makes this house unique

The house sits between downtown Gainesville and Dawsonville, so it is convenient to get to plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment.

Nice but needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

This is beautiful home. Has plenty of room for a large family. A couple issues. Multiple light bulbs out. Multiple outlets did not work. Lights by the dock did not work. The beds in 2 of the rooms were terrible. Patio furniture was broken. Jacuzzi was out of service. Ice maker was broken. This us a very nice home but needs some attention to this items to make a stay more enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Thank you taking the time to review our home and for your compliments. The home is not advertised as having a Jacuzzi. The rental listing does list that the ice maker is broken. Your review was the first communication from you in regards to any problems. It would be helpful for future owners/guests at locations where you might rent for you to alert the owner or management co. right away when you find a rental unsatisfactory so any possible problems can be remedied while you are there and so they don’t affect the following guests as well. We have had the light bulbs replaced but could not find the outlets that are not working. It would be much appreciated if you could send us a message to let us know which outlets and which rooms/beds you encountered problems with so we can resolve the problem. We are sorry that you were not fully satisfied with your stay.

Very disappointed, minus 5 stars

  • 1 of 5

The house is unkept, filthy, poorly maintained, and over all unsanitary. The six light chandler over the dining table had 1/2"-1" of dead bugs in each globe as well as all the house light fixtures. We were forced to move the table away from the light fixture. The toaster oven catch pan and main oven broiler pan were crusted in grease and food, thus causing us to inspect and clean any item before it's use and purchase paper plates, cups and plastic dinnerware at the Walmart 6 mi away. The outdoor grill old crusted food on the grates, all of the A/C air return vents and baseboards were crusted in dust, filthy windows, shower controls broken etc. It seems that the "Cleaning Fee" is to wash the linens only because nothing is clean in the residence. We had our whole family and boat there, so walking out was not an option, however we did check out a day early. The lake is nice

Renter BEWARE.

It was very clean and worked perfectly for our froup if 11.

  • 5 of 5

we really enjoyed our stay. The steps to the lake was difficult I will admit, especially coming back up, but other than that, it was perfect for our group of 11. The outside deck makes you feel like you are in the tops of the trees. Beautiful and shaded. Owners were very responsive when we had a small problem with the refrigerator.

Fantastic Lakeside Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We went here for a family reunion. It was excellent. Great pool table and dock for lots of family fun!

The deck is great for grilling and the beds are comfy! Aside from the terrible taste in football (haha kidding, the owner is a Bear's fan) this house is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. It means so much to us that your family had a nice time at our house. I would also like to take this opportunity to say "You're Welcome" since you were able to enjoy the pictures and decorations celebrating the next Super Bowl Champions. Hopefully you took some pictures of the family in the room so that you could post pictures during the Super Bowl claiming the Bears as your team. Thanks again and enjoy the rest of your summer.

Perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

Such a nice and cozy place to stay. We had a great time and really enjoyed it's location right on the lake! The house itself is very well kept and the the owners are very nice to deal with. The heating was perfect, the house was clean, the views from the house were great. There were 6 adults staying this weekend and never once did we feel we were in each others way. The quietness of the area is something we rarely see coming from NYC, but was well appreciated. And the STARS, wow. Just looking up every night was something we don't see in the City. I would highly recommend this house for anyone wanting a nice getaway. we had a great stay and plan to go back!

The pictures don't tell the story!!!!

  • 1 of 5

We chose this house for our New Years Eve 2016 getaway. The only good thing I can say is that the house was spacious and we had all the roon we needed. When we arrived the exterior of the house was dirty and there was a dumpster over flowing with trash that stayed full the entire stay. There were wild dogs around the dumpster all throughout the day. We weren't comfortable being out in front of the house.

When we walked into the house immediately we smelled a terrible stench. After researching the situation we found it was coming from the down stairs area. The smell was that of a dog, and it filled the downstairs area. Then we proceeded to check out the bedrooms upstairs and on the master bedroom balcony we found dog droppings. We contacted the owners, and they couldn't get anyone to come out to clean. We understood it was a holiday and they did refund us $100 for the issue.

We asked the owner if we could pop fireworks on the property for the new year, and they said yes as long as we did it at the dock. Fireworks are tradition, and was an important part of our celebration. What they didn"t tell us is that the dock was damaged and we had no access to it.This was very disappointing, and after multiple attempts to try and recrify this situation amicably the owner stopped responding.

So I would NOT recommend this property to anyone due to the dishonesty and lack of professionalism of the owners in handling this situation. In my business the way we treat our customers especially when we've done something wrong is of the utmost importance. When you fail to handle customer concerns they turn into complaints and you receive reviews like this.
