About Randy and Les Thomas

we designed this home as our permanent residence after searching for several years for the perfect lake view. our friends, children, and grandchildren have grown up learning to swim and enjoy lake activities.

Why Randy and Les Thomas chose Lake Lanier

The house is designed with a master suite downstairs and all guest bedrooms are upstairs Each bedroom is designed as suites each with their own bath. All generations can have their own space. The property is secluded and very safe and located in a quiet lake neighborhood!

Excellent family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at this beautiful home! My parents and siblings (and their families) were all flying in for this reunion, so I wanted to make sure that everyone had a great time. Well, we all did! Everyone kept talking about how spacious and comfortable the house was. The view was amazing and you could see the lake from every room! There was a nice path that led to the lake and we had a great time swimming for hours. Randy and Les were incredibly nice and accommodating to our needs. They were always available by phone when I had a question or a concern. It was a great pleasure working with them and I would definitely stay here again! Thank you Randy and Les for this amazing time!

Beautiful House, Generous Owners

  • 5 of 5

When my family decided to go on a lake vacation, we had no idea it would be this wonderful! This house is beautiful, very spacious, and is situated right on the lake! The back patio was absolutely lovely, and we had all our meals outside, overlooking the beautiful lake view. In addition to the house, a pontoon boat and jet ski were available for rent, and it was perfect being able to use it during those items during the week as we wanted (without having to drive a rental marina). All of this is a reflection of the generous and wonderful owners, Randy and Les, who made our family feel welcome and comfortable, and made sure the house had everything we needed (towels and linens).

My family continues to talk about what a relaxing and lovely vacation this was! If I were to plan a trip to Lake Lanier again, I would absolutely rent this house again.

Randy and Les - Our family thanks you for making this a lovely family vacation, and for being such generous people!
