Overview

About the property

1750 square foot house overlooking Lake Lanier, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Lake House is located at the end of the circle in a wonderful older lake neighborhood. There are 2 bedrooms, bath, living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry on the main floor and the master bedroom and master bath are upstairs.

The living room has a 47" flat screen and a wood burning fireplace. The kitchen has a self-cleaning oven, dishwasher, microwave and plenty of dishes and pots and pans.

The large concrete patio provides an excellent place for lake viewing, dining or watching the kids in the fenced yard. The fire pit will keep everyone warm on the cool evenings (you provide the wood). The covered shelter between the house and the dock provides a great place for relaxing and reading.

A gentle slope leads you to the 32' x 32' covered boat dock with a 14' slip and 12' platform for swimming, fishing and relaxing. Bring your boat or rent one at a marina on the Lake. Bald Ridge Marina with boat rentals and public boat launch 5 minutes away. Mary Alice Park with public boat launch 10 minutes away. A canoe is available for guest use. Please bring your own life jackets.

This property is perfect for families. Remember, 6 overnight guests and no more than 10 people on the property at any given time. Please no wild and crazy parties. We love our neighbors and respect their homes, families and privacy.

Costco, Publix, Walmart, Target, Kohls, Home Depot, Lowe's, Outback, Chili's, Starbucks and all the other chains and Mom and Pop's are within 2 - 5 miles.

About Janey Boyles

We purchased this property in 2004. It was our home until 2008. We became Grandparents and needed a larger place to accommodate our extended family. We live about 15 miles away and miss our great friends and neighbors. We manage and care for the property.

Why Janey Boyles chose Cumming

We loved the location, just one mile from GA 400. The channel/cove is great, deep and away from the busy parts of the lake. Close to town but felt as though we were in the county.

What makes this house unique

Great cozy house, quiet neighborhood, great part of the lake, 1 mile from GA 400, 2 miles from downtown Cumming, easy access to Atlanta and the North Georgia mountains. Because we are away from the larger parts of the lake, you can float the day or night away in the lake or rest peacefully on the dock.

This property is great for families. Please no large family reunions, birthday parties or fraternity/sorority/prom parties.

Family Wedding Weekend

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Late review but well deserved! We stayed at Janey's lake home for our daughter's wedding. There were five of us staying there, but we also had the grandchildren come for the day after the wedding for family time. They all enjoyed the surrounding area and went on a short hike while we prepared brunch in the very well-equipped, up-to-date kitchen. The home is spotless, and every amenity of home is there, including the washer and dryer, which we used. All beds are comfortable and the whole home is nicely decorated. The views are awesome of the lake and surrounding area. The lighting is great due to the windows across the whole back. Had we brought our dog, he would have loved the fenced in area. Janey's communication is very timely and efficient. Checking in/out was simple. The location is perfect for proximity to all thoroughfares to anywhere....only one road to major roads (unlike many lake areas that have a multitude of windy roads to get anywhere). Everything was just perfect which made the wedding weekend even better. We will definitely request again for future visits to Atlanta. Janey was a most hospitable host!

Lake House 2016

  • 5 of 5

I just had the pleasure of staying at the Lake House for the 2nd time. You feel at home from the time you walk in. The view from the house and the back patio area are awesome. We enjoyed the dock both Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. So peaceful. Home owners think of everything to make your stay comfortable and you don't have to pack up your house to bring everything in order to enjoy the property. Outside furniture is provided on patio and dock. Kitchen is stocked with pots and pans, dishes, cups, glasses, cutlery, silverware, everything you need. The bedrooms are very welcoming and the beddings provided are the finest quality. All 6 of us had another great weekend at the Lake House! Thank you Janey!

Outstanding house and experience - our favorite

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in this house twice now, and it is our favorite when visiting Lake Lanier. The house is immaculately maintained by the owners - clean and well equipped for comfort.

I rented the house for our annual fall fishing trip with my two sons, and ended up having another couple stay with us - they'd had to evacuate their home during Hurricane Matthew.

Plenty of room for the five of us, and owners were most gracious in accommodating the last minute change. The boys caught a few fish off the dock We all enjoyed evenings out on the patio (which overlooks the lake) roasting hot dogs and marshmallows over the fire or grilling steaks.

Thanks J & B, for a wonderful experience! We hope to stay with you again.
