Overview

About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

This gorgeous home was constructed in 2008 and is immaculate, beautiful, and ready to accommodate a small family reunion, executive retreat, or any other vacation combination imaginable. The views of the lake are amazing and the location is just as great. Come for all the fun that Lake Lanier can offer, but don't forsake the surrounding areas to visit as well.

This home away from home is conveniently located just 5 minutes from GA 400 and the North Georgia Premium Outlet Mall. Past that, we are located just 30 minutes from Amicalola Falls State Park and its great hiking and sightseeing opportunities. While you're here, don't forget to check out the many other activities that are available, not only in Dawsonville, but in neighboring cities of Dahlonega, Cumming, and Gainesville. The property is also only about an hour's drive from Atlanta, so stay with us and take in some sights of the big city with a short commute.

This 7 bedroom home will amaze you with its classic and tasteful decor and breathtaking views of the water and surrounding mountains. The house is situated in the middle of a deep water cove that is big enough to accommodate boats, jet skis, and swimmers of all kinds, but just off the main waterway enough to keep heavy boat traffic at bay.

This retreat sleeps 15 and is even equipped with a crib for your little one's comfort. The main level houses the full kitchen, laundry room, half bath, dining, breakfast, and living rooms as well as a great sun room facing the water and surrounded by windows. The master suite is also on the main floor and is fully decorated with a king bed, Jacuzzi tub, a walk-in closet and a separate linen closet. The sun room is accessible from the family room and the master bedroom. Just off the sun room is a deck fully equipped with patio furniture and a charcoal grill just down the steps. You will love the views from the deck. Take advantage of them in the early morning and the evening. Nothing beats having your morning coffee on the deck as the mist is lifting off the lake!!

Bedrooms 2, 3, 4, and 5 are located on the second level of the home. Bedroom #2 has its own adjoining bathroom, while the other bedrooms share a central hall bath. Queen beds fill bedrooms #2 and #3, along with walk-in closets, while #4 has a double bed and closet. The view of the lake from bedroom #4 is the best in the house. Bedroom #5 houses a queen bed and a crib.

The lower terrace level of the house comes equipped with a billiard table, air hockey, and efficiency kitchen in the media room with a refrigerator, sink, and microwave. A huge sectional sofa anchors the media room in front of a 50' flat screen TV. One bedroom downstairs has twin-over-double bunk bed set and the second bedroom has two twin beds. This second bedroom also has an adjoining bathroom with a door to the terrace patio. This feature allows you to enter the bathroom from outside the house. It's really nice to immediately enter the bathroom and get cleaned up after a relaxing swim or exhilarating boat ride. A second full bath is located in the hallway for easy access from the media/gaming area or the first bedroom.

This house truly has it all. The kitchen is fully stocked, as well as the linen closets, for bed and bath. The dock is ready for your boat and water toys. We guarantee you will love your stay!

No smoking! No pets! Alcohol ONLY in outdoor areas(decks, patios, and dock). Groups of 15 or less, only. 3-night minimum, except in summer (see note below for specific dates). At this time, we do not provide the online booking option.

About The Owner

My family and I are native to Dawson County going back at least 5 generations. Our little corner of the world is very important to us and we would like the opportunity to show people from all over the country what a great hideaway we have in Dawsonville, Georgia. From the lakes to the mountains, and from Summer to Winter, we love it here and want to give others the chance to come to love it too.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Lake Lanier

For generations, my family has enjoyed Lake Lanier on this property that we are now listing for rent. In 2007, we began construction on this house on a lake lot that has been in our family for over 50 years. This new house was our attempt to better our property and provide others with an opportunity to enjoy what we have loved for years and years - Lake Lanier.

What makes this house unique

Our property is the perfect getaway for a number of different reasons. The home is large enough to host a sprawling family reunion, a business retreat for top executives, or a lake vacation for a smaller family who wants an intimate setting on Lake Lanier. In any weather, this property has something to offer - the great water activities of the late spring and summer, and the fall activities of the surrounding North Georgia Mountains.

No weddings or large parties. 15 guests total, including children and day visitors.

I hosted a small team retreat for a total of six adults. This location worked very well. Everything was well maintained and my team was very pleased with the arrangements.

4 Generation Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful 4 generation family reunion at this beautiful home and can highly reccomend it to everyone! The home is very well maintained and the lake is beautiful. We had 13 of us - from age 4 months to 80 years old and it was great for everyone. The master bedroom suite was perfect for G-Gma and G-Gpa and kept their need to go up and down stairs to a minimum. The largest bedroom upstairs with the crib was great for my son's family, and the downstairs rooms worked for the singles in the family. The kitchen was wonderful to cook in - plenty of room for everyone to get involved - and we used the enclosed porch for some fun family games like Pictionary. Hopefully we will be able to go back another time!

Perfect place to relax

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. From the time we pulled into the driveway, everything was perfect. The home had everything we needed and more. The guys loved waking up and going out to the lake to fish. The children had everything from toys, pool table, and more games. Everything from restaurants and departments store was just around the corner. Great place to relax.

Wonderful home in amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this fantastic lakeside property during a very special time, our son's wedding. There were 14 of us however each one of us stayed in comfort and every possible need was catered for in an amazing and beautiful house. This place will stay with all of us for ever, the memories it helped to create was worth every mile we travelled to get there. Lake Lanier was not a place I had heard of before but it was the most wonderful and peaceful place, we rented a boat and toured the lake which is all the more unbelievable when you realise it was man made in the 1950's. Travelling around the area was so easy, only an hour north of Atlanta but so much more in the area worth seeing, Amacallola Falls at the start of the Appalacian trail was stunning. The happiest time however was in and around the house where we swam from the jetty, and some fishing was attempted without success. The lay out meant people could sit and read in peace or spend time in each other's company or having fun playing pool or air hockey. Cooking was a pleasure with a large and well equipped kitchen and every bedroom was just so comfortable. Also more than enoug bathrooms, especially when all getting ready for a wedding at the same time. Cannot praise this property highly enough.

Fabulous Lake house:

  • 5 of 5

This home has lots of rooms and bathrooms. Great layout. Main floor has master bedroom with private bathroom, gourmet kitchen, formal dinning room, sitting area, formal livingroom, and enclosed porch (nicely decorated with fans and AC). The enclosed porch was a big hit with the kids and adults it had a great view of the backyard and lake.

The upper level has 4 bedrooms and 1 hallway bathroom, and one private bathroom. Good size rooms all have one bed in each room.

The lower level/basement has two bedrooms 1 hallway bathroom, big screen, sofa and loveseat, refrigerator, microwave, sink, pool table and air hockey table. This lower level leads to the backyard.

The exterior appearance of the house is gorgeous, and it does not disappoint expectations inside. Owners provide coffee machine, pots & pans, cutlery, plates and cups. Laundry room has washer & dryer, ironing board and iron. Owner has thought of it all.

I am giving you details so you book this home without any reservation. I have had a horrible experience with Home Away in which the homeowner falsely advertised his home. This home is true to form. Look at video if you need a visual presentation.

Owner is friendly and available to help in all that she can. I will re-book in the future.
