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. When the water level fluctuates, we just roll out the docks - "chase the water." 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!

Perfect holiday vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Location was amazing, close to everything. House was spotless and perfect size. Swimming was great and the canoe was a nice way to visit the lake. Would highly recommend this home for a perfect holiday. We already miss our morning coffee looking at the lake.

Also had a chance to meet Janey ( owner) and she was extremely helpful and willing to make our stay enjoyable.
