Waleska House Rental Photos and Description

Luxury 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 4,600 s/f w/ Breathtaking Mountain and Lake Views



This beautiful, newly renovated 4,600 square foot luxury home sits at the peak of Lake Arrowhead. Enjoy amazing unobstructed lake and mountain views all the way to the Atlanta skyline from the 2-story deck or the floor-to-ceiling windows that span the entire width of the home on both floors. This home allows you to enjoy and see Mother Nature at her best!

The home went through substantial renovations in early 2014 and boasts brand new furnishings, a media/theater room, home theater with 120' screen, a claw-foot tub in the Master bathroom, 60 inch flat-screen plasma tv's, Blu-Ray DVD players, a Wii gaming console, air hockey table, WiFi, high efficiency washer and dryer and stainless steel appliances. Renew your spirit hiking on nearby trails, boating on a deep crystal clear lake, swimming in one of the 2 family-friendly pools or playing tennis or a round of golf at the new championship Highlands Course. While it is the perfect mountain getaway, you are still less than an hour away from the activities and attractions in Atlanta as well as shopping, dining, movies and other attractions in nearby Canton and Dawsonville.

This home accommodates ten people very comfortably with all of the conveniences of home. The main floor has a master bedroom (brand new king bed) with floor-to-ceiling windows framing the best views in all of Lake Arrowhead as well as a huge walk-in closet and master bathroom suite complete with a claw-foot tub. Also on the main floor is a dining room, kitchen and a large family room with brand new leather seating, a 60 inch plasma TV and wood burning fireplace.

The downstairs living area has 2 bedrooms with brand new queen beds as well as a 600+ square foot 'kids suite' with 2 bunk beds (4 beds total), an air hockey table, flat screen television, Blu-Ray DVD player and a Wii gaming console. Rest assured your kids will have the time of their lives in this huge room designed just for them. You have to see it to believe it! Also downstairs is a large media/theater room with a brand new 60 inch flat-screen plasma television, Blu-Ray DVD player and a brand new leather sectional with power reclining seats. This media room is the perfect place for your family and guests to unwind and enjoy a movie or your favorite sporting event. The media room is in addition to the newly added home theater.

The view of the lake and mountains is truly breathtaking. As you will see from the photos, this home was designed to maximize the views with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home. You and your family will enjoy just sitting on the decks and looking out at the wildlife (we see many deer, fox and beautiful birds) while enjoying the scenery.

We now offer a one-of-a-kind concierge service to our guests. Upon your arrival, we will have the home stocked with all of your requested food, drinks and toiletries*. This service is perfect for those who wish to begin their vacation the moment they walk into our home and avoid time-consuming trips to the store. We are the only home to offer this service to our guests.

This is a non-smoking home and pets are not permitted.

The mountain retreat resides in the gated and private community of Lake Arrowhead in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains. Lake Arrowhead is described as the best place to live in metro Atlanta, Georgia and was recently awarded ‘Community of the Year” by the Atlanta Home Builders Association. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains just 40 minutes north of Atlanta's, Lake Arrowhead is a private lake and golf community like none other. It is graced with over 8,000 carefully protected acres of lush woodlands, gentle waterfalls and crystal clear lake waters. Located in Cherokee County in the charming town of Waleska, GA, home to Reinhardt University, Lake Arrowhead is a lake and golf community. It is home to a private 540-acre lake that is ranked among the cleanest in the State of Georgia.

The new Highlands Course offers 18-holes of championship play and is considered one of the best new golf courses in Georgia. The Highlands Course is complimented by the new Adirondack-style clubhouse with a pro shop and full restaurant and bar. The new 40-acre swim and activity center, Great Festival Park, is now open and includes a new Jr. Olympic size pool, Great Lawn multi-activity park, basketball and volleyball courts, eco-garden and more. Come enjoy 8+ miles of walking trails and nature trails and the Red Cloud Park Swim & Tennis Center and much more! It's all here – a lake and golf community like none other so close to the conveniences and excitement of Atlanta, Georgia!

About The Owner

Our family resides in South Florida. We purchased this home as a mountain getaway and to enjoy the laid back lifestyle that this community provides. Living in South Florida we have seen our share of breathtaking views and scenery, however, the views from this home top them all. We love this home and know you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Amazing house, breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home! We had plenty of room and breathtaking views from almost every room in the house! The pictures do not do this place justice. We were extremely impressed with it, and the price was very affordable. Our teenagers really loved the home theater and spent lots of time watching movies and playing the Wii.Wish we could've stayed longer. We were able to play 9 holes of golf and enjoyed the tennis courts late one night. We will definitely book again!

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely beautiful!

We arrived at night and when we saw the downslope driveway and everything was all dark, we thought what have we gotten ourselves into. Then when we entered the house, it was absolutely perfect!

My family, my brother's family, and my parents all had to leave our homes and lives in Savannah for a mandatory evacuation from Hurricane Matthew, and we saw this home on the VBRO website. The owners were so accommodating and opened their home to us on very short notice. The house was beautiful and very comfortable, and had everything we needed to feel at home. Our children would definitely give the house 5 stars! It is a teenagers dream with a game room, media center and an awesome home movie theatre!

We rented the house under very stressful circumstances, and this property, the owners, and the entire process made our difficult situation so much easier!

Great Home and Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We chose Lake Arrowhead because it was close to Atlanta but "in the mountains". With two teens, this house was perfect! They had their own getaway in the downstairs areas and loved watching movies on the in home theater. The view was stunning and the house was well appointed and had everything we needed. The drive from Atlanta wasn't bad at all. Groceries and restaurtants were easy to get to but it's a home where all you want to do is stay put and enjoy the view! Golfed at The Highlands and also kayaked. It was worth every penny.

Perfect Lake Arrowhead Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We chose Lake Arrowhead for a family retreat. 3 sisters their husbands and 4 children under 10 to fit the bunk beds. The views from this home are second to none. The home is open, has abundant windows and has space for everyone to get together (theater room for family movies) or find space of their own. There is a very small car ride to the local amenities - the marina, the 2 pools, playground, hiking trails, etc. We saw Deer, many birds, and a Fox in the backyard during our 3 night stay. Publix is about 15 minutes away but not so far out of the way that you can't head into town to grab a few items if needed. Highly recommend the home for families or even for couples seeking a peaceful romantic getaway.

We spent 4 days here with another family for a quick get away over spring break. We had 4 teens who loved the theatre and media room. The views are stunning and the furniture comfortable. The king bed upstairs is very firm for those who like that. We enjoyed hiking nearby and grocery stores, etc are not far. We would definitely stay here again.
