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).

June 2, 2018 to July 28, 2018 are Saturday to Saturday rentals only.

About Angie Smith

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.

Angie Smith purchased this house in 2008

Why Angie Smith chose Dawsonville

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.

Wonderful!!! Property was just as described. Home was clean and well furnished for our family trip.

  • 5 of 5

I had found this property on vrbo. It appeared to be perfect for a family trip we were planning. The home is beautiful. The rooms are spacious and the furnishings are excellent. The beds are all very comfortable and the kitchen had everything needed for our vacation. The boat dock is covered and accommodated our 22' rental boat nicely. There was plenty of water depth for the boat during our visit. Everything was just as shown in the photos. Please be aware that there is a grass hill down to the boat dock. The hill is rather steep and may be a challenge for older guests. The home is very close to town and a local gas station. Very convenient for us. The home is in a beautiful location. Very pretty. Made for a great vacation. Very happy we found this property.

This was the 2nd year that our family stayed at this home and we really enjoyed it. The house was very roomy and well equipped with everything that we needed. The area was great also. I have never met Angie Smith (owner) but I know that she is a great person. She made sure that we had everything that we needed last year and this year. I we go to that area again next year, I definitely would stay there.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was very clean and great for multiple families. We had 5 couples and 5 kids and it was great. We had a comfortable stay with ample sleeping areas. The downstairs terrace was a great place for the kids to hang out and also a great area for a large group to watch television. The dock was perfect for our 2 jet skis and the traffic on the lake was minimal. The outlet mall and several shopping/grocery stores were all located within a 5 mi radius. Overall a great location and would definitely stay again.
