About Evelyn Smith

I have been renting my home for several years and have provided wonderful memories for families from all over the United States. Evidenced by my repeat tenants, I can assure you that you too will come back with story after story of the wonderful time that was had. While the home always sells out during the summer, the folks who recognize the great time to be had during the Fall and Winter months also realize a huge savings on the rental. I enjoy sharing my home and hope that you too will come and stay and see what great time awaits you!

Evelyn Smith purchased this house in 1999

Why Evelyn Smith chose Lake Lanier

I purchased this home because it is a beautiful home that sits on Lake Lanier, the largest lake in Georgia. I have been coming to Lake Lanier since I was a child and have great memories of time spent with family and friends and wanted to share this home with folks to make their own memories. So far, it has been a great success and I have enjoyed the spoils of having families make thier own Lake Lanier memories.

What makes this house unique

It is rarely known that North Georgia has an array of great wineries that sit right on the mountains. The views are spectacular and the wineries themselves are gorgeous. Napa has nothing on the quality of these wines and spending a day touring these close in proximity wineries is a great time. I also enjoy Burts Pumpkin Farm. A HUGE pumpkin farm where family's can pick out their pumpkin and then picnic right there on the farm. In addition, I love going Christmas shopping at the North Georgia Premium Outlet Malls where I can get amazing deals on everything AND come back to enjoy a beautiful home with my family and friends. Hiking one of the many trails on the Appalachain Mountain to view the color's of fall is absolutely breathtaking. During the Summer, of course the scale of everything to do is enormous. Waterskiing, boating to where you can park the boat and have lunch or dinner, fishing right off the dock, or relaxing on top of the dock's party deck with a few friends. There is so much to do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I hope that you enjoy your stay and want to come back for more memories at the lake.

Great family time, enjoying lake life!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has such a great time in this house. we had everything at our disposal. the house was big enough to give the kids their space, we had wonderful access to the boat dock and the wonderful lake. Location was perfect seemed like we were in the middle of everywhere we wanted to visit. We would absolutely stay there again. Evelyn was a pleasure to work with.

Thank you.

I was going back and forth between a 3 and 4 stars. The kindness of the owner tipped the scale.

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a blast. The dock was amazing. The set up of the house was perfect for our party of eight. Every room have privacy and a bathroom is huge for our family! The location was perfect as well. We rented a boat and kept it at our dock which was perfect! The down side for us was two fold but not deal breakers...a) the home is a bit out dated and the furniture indoor and out was a tiny bit dirty. b) there are a ton of steps to the dock and throughout the house...just a heads up for those with walking issues. Also, if you are active and like to run or walk. Be prepared for very steep hills. But, again overall very pleasant and positive experience. Even with a few issues the owner was courtesy and on top of things.

House was as nice as advertised. Perfect for my family.

  • 4 of 5

Bedrooms were great, all very comfortable. Grill was perfect for cooking needs.

Grandkids loved diving off pier and swimming in lake. Catching some small fish was a great adventure for them, particularly the little ones.

House was in close proximity to the towns and state parks we chose to visit.

All in all a wonderful vacation. Thank you for sharing your house with us.

Great for big groups

Huge house, very comfortable. We were a group of ten (five couples) that went to my son´s wedding. We stayed for 9 nights and had a great time. We didn´t have any problem. Everything worked perfectly.

Very nice location and the owner was responsive , very helpful and kind.

We would gladly repeat the experience
