Cumming House Rental Photos and Description

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 master has a queen bed, crib, sofa, chair and 42” flat screen TV. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed, 32” flat screen TV and chair. Bedroom 3 has a twin bed, a double bed and 37" inch flat screen. 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. 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.

Travel GA 400 north to the North Georgia Mountains for a great day trip or head South on GA 400 to Buckhead, Midtown or Atlanta for a Braves, Falcon’s or Hawk's game, the World of Coke, the GA Aquarium, CNN Center or the Atlanta Zoo.

I will usually respond within a few hours to your inquiry. (Sometimes VRBO does not play will with technology. Resubmit or call if no response within 24 hours.)

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.

Janey Boyles purchased this house in 2004

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.

Stayed Here two Years In a Row! Love this Home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here two years in a row. So excited the first time with the gorgeous property on a beautiful lake.

House is well taken care of, perfect for privacy when you travel with friends.

Clean as a whistle!

So comfortable with everything you need! It's like visiting a friends never want to leave!

Close to lots of restaurants, shops, water activities, antique shopping. Or just to relax and enjoy. The beautiful trees and lake make it hard not to forget about everything while your there!

Nestled in a very quiet neighborhood, very safe feeling! Owners very accommodating!

Hoping to stay again this year!!

Unique lake house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at "THE" Lake house.

The house was very clean and had everything that we needed.

The kitchen was gorgeous and very well equipped.We enjoyed making several family meals there.

The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and everyone felt comfortable there.

We went canoeing and hiking every day and had so much fun.

The house is located very close to the the stores and restaurants so that was so convenient for us as well.

Mrs Janey ( the owner) was always very kind and attentive.Thanks Janey!

I highly recommend to spend some relaxing and wonderful time at "THE" lake house.

A Lovely Lake House

  • 5 of 5

The four our us – that includes our two well behaved rescue dogs – have just returned from a five day stay at Janey and Bob’s lovely Lake House. As all of the previous reviews have stated, the house and location are truly exceptional. Janey was very gracious about accepting – even welcoming – our two dogs. The yard is fenced all around the house, so there was plenty of room for the “boys” to stretch their legs, and to relax in the sun, enjoying the beautiful, cool breezes. We’ve all had a long, hot summer in coastal Georgia.

So yes the location was perfect, but so was the house. It was immaculate. The master bedroom (the only one we used) was spacious, and full of light with all of the windows. The bed was very comfortable, and the linens and towels were of high quality.

The kitchen was a delight. I appreciated being in a vacation home and yet having such nice dishes (Fiesta) and silverware. The kitchen was also stocked with paper and cleaning products – a nice surprise.

It was an easy walk down to the dock – the steps are wide and secure – and there are plenty of comfortable chairs to tempt your lazy bones. Our intention was to use the provided canoe, but time got away from us. It was so relaxing to just sit and read, that it was hard to break the mood.

I could continue with this review, but I think you get the idea. The Lake House has been outfitted with a lot of thought and consideration for the care and comfort of guests. I highly recommend this vacation house – we all hope to return in 2016.

Perfection on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 2nd stay at The Lake House. The owners have thought of everything here. Location is perfect on the south end of the Lake. The house is immaculate and includes all the comforts of home. Honestly, Janey and Bob are extremely kind and wonderful to work with. They are just a text away should you need anything. However, I should make it clear that we did not need a thing! There is a new Costco about a 2 minute drive away, yet you would never know it once you enter the property. You feel like you are worlds away from the hustle and bustle of life.

We brought our boat and enjoyed the convenience of the dock. When not out tubing on the lake, our boys enjoyed swimming off the dock. The grill on the patio came in handy as well, but we were thankful to be close to many wonderful restaurant choices when we didn't feel like cooking. However, we did cook several meals in the well appointed kitchen. Every kitchen utensil I needed was right there ready to use.

Thank you Janey and Bob, for your warm hospitality!
