We invite you to our renovated, 4 bedroom, 4 full bathroom, lakefront home at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in gated, private Lake Arrowhead community just 1 hour north of Atlanta. The dock has room for 4 boats which provide a perfect spot for you to swim, fish, or sunbathe. There is over 120 feet of lakefront right outside your back door. A tranquil waterfall/fountain and koi pond overlook the northern shore of Lake Arrowhead in a quiet cove.

The home includes newer appliances, linens, furniture, electronics (3 large screen tvs, wii, bose sound system), and fully stocked kitchen. Other amenities include gas fireplace, gas grill, washer/dryer and a Margarita Machine.

The home sleeps 10 which includes 1 king, 2 queens and bunk beds- with full bottom and twin on top, and 1 pull out queen sleeper. IMPORTANT!! We only allow 10 people (including infants, children, and guests) to the home total during your stay. NO EXCEPTIONS. We are trying to be considerate to our neighbors and the community! The home is in a gated private community with security that checks people in and out.

HD cable (living room + 2 bedrooms), 3 large screen tvs + 1 smaller tv, internet and free local dialing included. The recreation room includes granite wet bar, arcade games and many board games (20 board games, ie. monopoly, clue, life, dominoes, trivial pursuit, etc) which provide fun for the whole family. A pack and play and high chair are available upon request before arrival. The two car garage and deck overlooking lake all provide you the amenities of being home.

Do not worry about any rain days at the lake!! Our home features an awesome game room which is fun for all ages. We have a 10 foot shuffle board table game, a heavy duty foosball table, electronic dart board, and numerous real video arcade games. We have a real GOLDEN TEE video game and an atari arcade game which has over 30 titles from the 80 s. There is a megatouch game which has 80 titles including photo hunt. The multigame video arcade game has pac man, frogger, centipede, and many, many more classic games.

BOAT RENTAL

A newer 20' pontoon boat is available for rent for experienced boaters. If you do want to rent our boat there is a minimum 3-day rental during peak season, 2-day minimum rental off peak season. The gas tank is filled, must return the boat filled with gas. The rate is $200/day, $1050/week. 20 foot Bentley pontoon with a 90 hp engine. Sorry.... no tubing allowed, or any other towing. (insurance rules). Please reserve your boat early. We only have 2 pontoons for our 4 homes so it is first come, first served.

A hydrobike, canoe, 10 foot paddle board, 2 kayaks, and a paddle boat are available for your enjoyment at no cost. You can not bring in your own boats, this is not our rule. Lake Arrowhead is a private lake which is subject to covenants which dictate that visitors boats are not allowed. The gate house will check the name on the boat registration with the homeowners name.

We have a 6 person hot tub, which has underwater lights, a water fall, 81 jets, and a mp3 jack with speakers! Who needs the warm weather when you can enjoy a 100 degree hot tub on a winters day, sipping champagne! We change the water and clean the hot tub after each rental for your hot tubbing pleasure.

Our home is a PET FREE HOUSE! 100% no exceptions!!! Please do not ask us to allow your pet. We are very strict, regardless of (pet size, temperament, or house training, etc.) in enforcing this policy. We remain a pet free environment to insure that we will provide a high quality home free from dander and allergens which is crucial to people with allergies. We apologize if this is an inconvenience.

We recommend trip cancellation insurance. Protect your vacation. When we reserve your rental we turn dozens of other customers away while holding the property for you. If someone cancels on us it is hard to find another renter on short notice. When my family goes on vacation we purchase trip insurance, it has saved us a few times.

Must be at least 30 years old to reserve.

We have 2 other homes in the same community which is listing number 909404 and 903453.

About rob leyden

We are two hard working entreprenuers with two very young children. We bought this property as an investment for our future and to be able to get away from the city life and retreat to a much more relaxing environment. Lake Arrowhead brings us to a place where we leave the stress behind and focus on family and the outdoors.

rob leyden purchased this house in 2010

Why rob leyden chose North Georgia Mountains

We fell in love with Lake Arrowhead for many reasons but mostly due to it offering lake living, mountains, close proximity to a major city, all while being nestled in a private, gated, quiet, golf community. We live in Roswell, GA so finding this gem, less than 1 hour from home, was the perfect investment for us. We welcome you to stay at our home and fall in love with this hidden treasure in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains - just as we have!

What makes this house unique

If you love being outdoors, Lake Arrowhead is the place for you (golf, swimming, boating, tennis, hiking, fishing, etc). Imagine a day waking up to a beautiful sunrise overlooking a tranquil lake, with deer visiting in your back yard. Enjoy breakfast outside on the deck with a beautiful view. Take a ride on a pontoon boat for a few hours or simply kayak or paddle boat along to the next cove. Travel an hour away and take in an Atlanta Braves game. Then visit some of the finest restaurants in the United States in Buckhead.....what a perfect day!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I felt so at home when we first walked in and saw "Welcome Keseric Party", along with the basket of goodies. Our week was A-Maz-ing!!! We were all on the dock and boats from surnrise to sunsets!!! My kids caught SO many fish! Not including tomorrow morning, my oldest one caught "27" fish! WOW! We would love to come back next year, hopefully for 2 weeks. Everything was PERFECT!! Thank you, thank you, thank you from my heart, be safe.

Loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a great time at this house on Lake Arrowhead. The scenery, the lake, the house itself were all great. We enjoyed the boat, the water toys - the water bike was my favorite - lounging on the deck, the game room, we enjoyed it all!! The community also has lots of activities that would be fun but we never left the house.

Can't wait to return.

Perfect Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

From the welcome basket and water "toys" to the board and arcade games, the Leyden's home was welcoming and perfect for our family. The four bedrooms and four full baths was great for our group of eight with enough room for everyone. The property was beautiful (including the bonus of deer wandering through the yard). The Leydens provided all the information we needed for the property to make it easy to check-in and out and where to find the local grocery store and info on the golf club restaurant. I would definitely recommend the property to others. On our week long vacation we went white water rafting, boating, took in a Braves game, went to a water park, visited the Coke museum and hiked Stone Mountain as well as just hanging at the lake. Everything is within an hour or so radius of this property. Fun time full of memories for our family which included six teens/young adults!

Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends had an incredible week at the Lake. With 5 teenagers there was something for them to do at all times. It was great to have so many amenities offered at this home. We utilized every single one of them from the relaxing hot tub to all the water items that made the lake so enjoyable. We found ourselves not wanting to leave and spent most of the week just hanging out and enjoying the down time. Thank you to the Leyden's for realizing the importance of offering a spectacular home to others to enjoy and relax in.

Absolutely stunning home! Sets the highest standard for accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

My brother got married this past weekend. We had many old friends attending the wedding and they thought they'd like to come in a little early to spend time with each other. I'm so glad we found this house instead of trying to book a hotel. It was exactly what we wanted.

We booked on SUPER short notice and the house owners could not have been more responsive and accommodating. The process of completing the rental agreement was done entirely online. Very easy. A handful of emails from the owners, VRBO.com and HomeAway later we were all set in less than 24 hours of our arrival.

The house is absolutely immaculate and completely stocked with everything we needed for our short stay (2 nights). Especially the kitchen where we found all the pans, oven trays, etc that we needed to make dinner. The large dining table (seats 8) was perfect for a long night of dinner, drinks and laughter. Every space, from the entrance to the bedrooms, from the kitchen to the (many) flatscreen TV's, has all the information you will need for your stay. That said, the HomeAway phone app was excellent and gives you everything you need to know such as getting in/out, places to go nearby, the house wifi password, etc. We referenced it multiple times.

The only drawback was communication with the outside world. Verizon has little to no service available. There is a cordless landline phone, however the battery drains VERY quickly (couple hours) if it is not kept on the charger. This made coordination with our friends a little difficult, but we managed. This very small gripe is literally the only thing I could possibly criticize about our fantastic stay.

DO NOT hesitate to book this property. We will definitely be back in the warmer months to experience the dock, boats and lake. (Thanks again, Rob!)

Fall Fun

  • 5 of 5

With the perfect fall weather, the use of the kayaks, canoe, pedal bike and pontoon by the kids and grownups alike, provided a weekend of fun on the water. Great space for all to gather either inside or outside with a well apportioned kitchen for the cooks in the group. Basement games were an excellent idea and kept kids happy after a day in the sun. Am sure there were other things to do in the area, but our group was content to use the amenities on the property. Owner was quick to respond to our questions.

THE COMMUNITY

The focal point of Lake Arrowhead community is certainly our beautiful lake, which is fed by blue, pure mountain stream water. Our lake is one of the largest privately owned man-made lakes in Georgia and ranked the cleanest lake in the state. Lake Arrowhead's clear waters boast depths of over 80 feet. Whether boating or fishing, you'll be sure to fall in love with the beauty of our lake.

GOLF

The new, award winning, championship Highlands Course opened in the fall of 2008. It is now considered one of the best new golf courses in Georgia. The Highlands Course measures over 7100 yards and features full-service practice facilities including a golf range, chipping and putting greens. Five of the Highland's 18 holes are along the lakefront while the remainder of the holes wanders into the North Georgia Foothills. Golf fees are $48 on weekdays and $55 on weekends (includes cart).
