Overview

About the property

Enjoy lake life with private dock, canoe, fishing, golf, tennis, clubhouse, more

Our home is the perfect retreat and has some of the best views on Lake Arrowhead. Not only do you have a great view on two decks you also have your own dock and deep water to dive into and enjoy. We have been renting this lake house for over 10 years now and we know what renters want. The house has a total of four bedrooms with three new king size beds. One of the four bedrooms has a bunk bed for the kids. The house comes with two small living rooms, one up and one down, with their own flat screen TV with DirecTV in each. The fully stocked kitchen is open to the top living room and is perfect for family gatherings around the granite countertop. We provide almost everything you need from bath soap to laundry soap. This lake house will accommodate eight people comfortably, but can sleep ten.

We also rent our Manitou 22 foot 115 HP pontoon boat for a super low rate of $850 per week or $450 for the weekend. Most pontoon boats of this type rent for $850 a day on lakes here in Georgia. We have an assortment of life jackets and keep a couple pull behind rafts to tow behind the boat. We only rent to guests staying at the house.

Amenities: The lake house has 4 bedrooms (3 king size beds, 1 bunk bed, 3 bathrooms, 2 sitting areas, 2 decks, private dock (on the water of course), gas grill, 6 person hot tub, complete kitchen (with pots & pans, dishes, utensils, coffee maker, etc.), linens and towels, laundry facilities. Free local and long distance calling inside the USA. Broadband internet provided free.

Lake Arrowhead is a private community with a 540 acre spring feed lake. This is Georgia's largest private lake. The lake rarely fluctuates and is one of the cleanest lakes in Georgia. The community offers a wide range of activities including 18 hole Golf course, public swimming pool with life guards, six lighted tennis courts, fishing, clean and clear lake perfect for swimming. All amenities are available to our guests within Lake Arrowhead.

All restaurants are located 20 minutes away in Canton. Being only 1 hour north of Atlanta, you are a short distance away from White Water (30 minutes), Six Flags (45 minutes), Zoo Atlanta (45 minutes), GA Aquarium (45 minutes), Stone Mountain (60 minutes), and major sports arenas.

Lake Arrowhead Golf Club: Often rated as one of the nicest courses in North Georgia, the Lake Arrowhead course is surrounded by Mountain that add to the experience of playing such a beautiful course. With the 540 acre private lake as a back drop all your cares will melt away as you play our challenging course.

About Bob Pendley

We are a family of four and love the lake life! We own this house to help keep our family involved in the same extracurricular activities....boating, swimming, fishing, and just sitting on the deck and watching the sun and moon come up over the mountains.

We are very blessed to own this house and love to share the joy with others.

Bob Pendley purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Bob Pendley chose North Georgia Mountains

This lake house is close to Marietta (which is where we live) Lakepoint Sports (our son is a wakeboard instructor), and Atlanta. The water level rarely fluctuates, even in a drought, and the water is crystal clean.

Lake Arrowhead is a private lake to which you must have access to fish. That is why the lake is so full of large fish.

What makes this cabin unique

We just love the view from the deck and the deep super clean water in the lake. When looking for lake property we learned you have two choices for lake property. Deep water but the house will be up off the water OR house on the water but a shallow lake. We chose deep water and high view.

We also love the fact the house sits on the no wake area of the lake. You may not care when looking for a lake if your in the no wake area until you try and swim off the dock or better yet when your kids are swimming. With no wake the boats slowly drive by and you don't worry as much about the kids swimming off the dock.

Lake Arrowhead is a spillover lake and it is also spring feed. The water level has only dropped about a foot in the years we have owned the house. I think the water is about 10 feet deep off the end of the dock.

I will drink a glass of water from the lake. Would you do that from any other lake in Georgia. No septic tanks. No water runoff from farms. No streams feeding the lake that come from developments. This place is heaven on earth.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This lake house has everything you need to have a great time. Let's start with beautiful lake views from both decks. There is plenty of space inside and out for the family to spread out. We had 3 families together during our stay. We enjoyed the pontoon boat (extra charge but worth it) everyday. We used it for fishing as well as tubing(my kids favorite lake activity). The house also has (no extra charge) a peddle boat, 2 canoes, kayak and an inflatable relaxation station which we used to lounge right off the boat dock.

Float on the lake. There are 2 pools to use within the community. We went to both. They are both very large. You will not be disappointed with this lake house. Only word of warning. If you have older guests or anyone that has trouble with stairs beware...there are about 63 steps from top to bottom.

Another excellent Fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

Went back for a second visit to SailAway for Columbus Day weekend in October. We found it to be just as peaceful as last year. It is a perfect getaway less than an hour from Atlanta. You feel like you are hours into the mountains. The serenity and beauty of the lake is like no other. Bob is a wonderful host. The communication along with the ammenities in the house were perfect for our family and friends. Comfortable!

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at Lake Arrowhead and hosted two lunches and one dinner at this property. Between the two outdoor seating areas and the interior, we had room for everyone. It was great having all of the water toys that the owners provide; it was the first time many people had tried their luck on a paddle board! We also rented the owners' pontoon boat which is very nice, big, and a good value. The area of the lake where the house is situated is a "no wake" zone which is really great because you don't get noisy boats zooming by - ideal for swimming and not having to worry too much about young children getting run over! And the dock is a good size; it can accommodate a lot of people. We had a great time there!!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for our family! The property was beautiful...clean, well kept and provided everything we needed to relax and enjoy some quality family time. We enjoyed boating, fishing, tubing, swimming and horseback riding. Sunsets by the dam were one of our favorite activities. Plenty of room for everyone and we can't wait to return.

Perfect Game Tournament/Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do this rental justice. The home is a HOME, with ample kitchen and living areas. The gem (s) include the secluded surroundings, gated~ beautiful community & lake living. The community has a golf course, 2 pools, trails, play ground, club house & the LAKE. The house has 2 canoes, a kayak, a pedal boat, two levels with 2 bedrooms each, 2 bathrooms upstairs, 1 downstairs, a Jacuzzi, plenty of life jackets, floats, lounging chairs, and comfortable beds. We encountered deer and critters (all harmless) every where we went. The kids & adults alike loved the lake and the relaxing atmosphere immensely. There were plenty of movies & games for rainy days & evenings. This is our first time vacationing on a lake home & we were not disappointed. House is about an hour from Atlanta Airport, 45 minutes from most of our baseball games, 20 minutes from closest grocery store (Publix) & most restaurants at about 1/2 hour. The Country Club has good food & a bar serving food until 9 pm & alcohol until 10 pm (during our stay). The owner is super attentive & responsive.

Awesome Property! Great lake views.

  • 5 of 5

We were down in July for a baseball tournament @ Lakepoint Sports Complex. This house was a great location in relation to the ball fields. Plenty of room w/ 2 bedrooms & a living area downstairs for the kids & 2 bedrooms upstairs w/ the kitchen & living area. We fished off the dock & caught plenty of fish. My son caught 3 nice size bass. Bring a net as you can scoop small fish & minnows up from the rock bank. We used the canoe, the kayak & the paddle boat as well as floats provided. The lake was clean & we loved that we were in a no wake zone. If you want to go horseback riding, make sure you call well in advance to reserve date & time. The community was clean & deer everywhere. We would definitely recommend this property.
