Dawsonville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

Enjoy the beautiful view of Lake Lanier from this five bedroom, three bathroom luxury cabin situated on a peaceful and secluded lot in North Georgia. This three level cabin features 26 foot floor to ceiling windows, luxurious master suite, hardwood floors, two fireplaces, two large decks overlooking the lake, gourmet kitchen, open floor plan, hot tub, pool table, gentle slope to water, and deep-water dock in a quiet cove.

This is the perfect spot to enjoy the lake and spend time with family and friends. The spacious cabin (sleeps 16) also makes a great location for corporate retreats and group outings.

The cabin is located 50 minutes north of downtown Atlanta off of GA 400. It is situated on Thompson Creek in the northwest corner of the lake away from all the rough water and crowds. There is convenient access to public boat ramps and a marina with fuel. The cabin is just 10 minutes from the historic town of Dahlonega with its quaint restaurants and shops. Also enjoy nearby golf, Amicalola Falls, pumpkin farms, North Georgia Premium Outlets, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and the best hiking and biking that North Georgia has to offer.

About Dan Youngblood

'Forty something' married, professional couple in the Atlanta area. 2 young kids and a large extended family. We both grew up on lakes and rivers. Love the outdoors, nature, family, adventure, and watersports.

Dan Youngblood purchased this house in 2003

Why Dan Youngblood chose Lake Lanier

My wife and I both grew up on lakes and rivers, and we want to share that experience with our kids and extended family. We love Lake Lanier -- what a beautiful lake!! In particular, we really love the northwest part of the lake since it is farther away from the crowds and rough water. Also, it's closer to the foothills of the North Georgia mountains and all of the wonderful things that area has to offer.

For several years, we tried to find a nice, big rental house on Lake Lanier for gatherings with extended family. Unfortunately, we were always disappointed with what was available for rent. Often, the houses were old and rundown with few amenities, and the owners were not very accommodating or customer-service oriented.

So realizing that there must be other families out there like ours, we decided to build a house from the ground up specifically catering to the high-end market for larger groups. Our house is one of the largest rental houses available on the lake, and we're sure that you'll agree that our amenities and location can't be beat!!

Plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for a 50th birthday party. Had 10 guests - plenty of sleep space for everyone! I especially liked the bunk room for my single guests. It is a bit of a walk to the dock so be prepared. Rooms and bed were comfortable. Owner had great pre-trip communication and answered a phone call right away on Sunday morning(I had forgotten the alarm code when checking out). Would defintely consider this house again for a quick weekend getaway!

Terrific house! Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very comfortable. With adults and babies everyone had more than enough room. We relocated our boat to the dock and that worked out very well. The owner checked in on us and was very responsive to any and all needs. We would definitely recommend this property and we will be back.

Wonderful Week with 15 intergenerational family members

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL time at this house. The house itself is perfect for large groups (we had 15 ppl ranging from infant to grandparents). The kids loved swimming around the dock and it was very safe as there was not a lot of boat traffic on this part of the lake. The kids especially enjoyed the huge floating water mat the house had that was next to the dock. They spend many hours crawling, jumping, flipping off of it. There was also a tube floating next to the dock but it was old and worn down and all the handles were broken so we didn't use that as much. The canoe was also very fun and nice to have.

A few comments on the house- the master bed has a wonderful memory foam mattress. The master closet and also the two bedroom closets on the first floor are big enough to fit a pack n play and/or toddler bed in them (for those parents who like a little distance from their little ones at night). We were given the master suite and put both our kids (baby in pack n play and 3yo in toddler cot) in the master closet and it worked great, almost like an extra bedroom because we all wake up too much if we all 4 are in 1 room.

We really liked how sturdy and classy the house was. Everything was good quality and solid, so we weren't scared about any of the 6 kids breaking things. Dan (the owner) was great to work with and very responsive. There was a bad storm while we were there and he responded right away and sent the caregiver over to help the next day. It would have been nice to have a binder with local things in it somewhere in the house (like menus, restaurant recommendations, shopping places, tubing places, etc) especially for the older adults who don't have smartphones but google filled in.

One last thing that we loved and really appreciated was the HUGE dining room table. We love to have big family dinners where we all sit together and we have never found a rental house with a big enough table until this house. We brought some portable benches for the second side of the table (one side already has a long bench) and with the benches on two sides and 2 people on each end we were able to fit all 15 of us around the table. It was a super sturdy beautifully made wood table as well- another example of the good quality in the house.

Overall a wonderful great quality house- perfect for large groups.

Look no further...absolutely GORGEOUS lake house!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this lake house with two other families for our summer get away. Trying to find a house to accommodate the needs of three different families was no easy feat. But this house did just that and then some! The lake house exceeded our expectations for so many reasons. First of all, it looks exactly as pictured, maybe even nicer. It was gorgeous, spacious and clean, and we had no trouble accommodating our large group. Plus, the outside areas were super fun, especially the dock and the splash pad. The kids played in the lake the entire time and barely came inside. When they did, the bunk room "just for kids" was the perfect retreat. The house offers the perfect blend of adult hangout space and kid play space, which we LOVED. Oh, and the hot tub was AMAZING, another bonus. Plus the owner, Dan, was super easy to work with and patiently answered every one of our questions, which we had plenty of. LOL! I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a fun lakeside getaway. We had a blast, and I'm sure you will too!

Beautiful lake home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting from Dan for a Memorial Day family reunion and we loved every minute of it. This house is beautiful and meets all of our needs. We are a large, multi generational family and there is something for everyone. Dan is wonderful to work with and makes sure every request is met. The dock is out in a very busy part of the channel so if you are wanting to be back in a secluded area without boat traffic, this is not the place for you. However, there is a great beachy area perfect for wading and swimming. We love renting this house and will be back again and again!
