About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Come relax and enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views from your charming lakefront chalet nestled on a shady, wooded Crystal Cove lot. Enjoy our New 46' High Definition TV with a Surround Sound System by catching an afternoon game or watching a great movie. Use our Wireless Internet to catch up on emails or find a great restaurant. This tranquil location is perfect for a lover's weekend get-away, a family retreat, or for just taking time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Enjoy a restful night's sleep in the master suite's plush queen-size bed. As you awake to the charming calls of the wildlife awaiting you, take a moment to enjoy the magnificant views overlooking awe-inspiring Lake Lanier. Our cozy three bedroom chalet comfortably accomodates parties of up to eight, including a double bed in the guest bedroom and two double beds in the loft.

After you have enjoyed a nice hot shower, relax with a mug of freshly ground coffee at our comfortable teak dinette. As you step out onto the huge screened porch, take a long intoxicating look admiring the panaramic view of beautiful Lake Lanier just down the path from your back door. Once you are ready to spring into your day whether it be catching some striped bass from our private dock with sun-deck, skimming across the lake on your jet-ski or just communing with nature, you can rest assured that our comfortable chalet will provide a soothing end to a relaxing day.

Upon your return in the cool of the evening, grill some burgers & brats on the gas-fired grill located on your lakefront deck. After dinner, move to the comfort of the plushly carpeted living room. Toss a couple of logs in the wood-burning fireplace, pop a dvd into the player and marvel at the amazing 46' High Definition TV with Surround-Sound Theater experience. Now that's the perfect ending to a perfect day on the lake.

About The Owner

My family and I live in Jacksonville, FL but love getting up to our lakehouse on Lake Lanier.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 2004

Why The Owner chose Lake Lanier

My family and I love the beauty of Lake Lanier as well as its location relative to Atlanta and the North Georgia mountains.

What makes this chalet unique

Our Lake Chalet offers beautiful vistas of Lake Lanier as well as a dock just down the gentle path that allows us to jump in the boat and spend a great day on the water or just go out on the lake for a short spin.

Perfect for quality time on the lake!

  • 4 of 5

Our family spent 4 nights at the cabin and enjoyed it thoroughly. We were looking for a simple, quiet place to enjoy swimming and play. The dock accommodated our boat nicely. We spent most of our time on the large screen porch and outer deck grilling. Beds were comfortable, air conditioning kept us cool, t.v. (even though we didnt want it on) kept the kids happy. Thanks for having the games on hand for us to use.

Great Family Time

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice house, everything is as advertised. Very clean and in good order. Lake was just down the hill, a bit of a hike but not bad. A small town is close so that you can shop for groceries, just make sure you buy charcoal for the the grill. Air conditioning worked great too ! The loft would be great for kids and they wouldn't mind the soft beds. The TV and Wifi worked fine. The driveway was steep but easy to manage. Again, I would rent it next summer. We very much enjoyed our time here. Lots of good family memories.

Lovely Tree House by the Lake

  • 4 of 5

Our family can highly recommend this delightful cabin on beautiful Lake Lanier. We found the house to be clean and nicely furnished. All beds were quite comfortable. Our teenagers loved having the loft area to themselves. The kitchen was very well-equipped and we cooked several meals there. The walk down to the dock didn't pose any issues for us but is down a wooded incline. The dock itself was in great shape and we spent most of our time there fishing, swimming and boating. (brought our own boat) The covered porch is the real gem of this cabin -- fully screened with lovely view of the woods and lake. Internet and TV worked perfectly. Our only complaint was the AC didn't seem to function fully but the tree cover kept us relatively cool. The owner is very responsive to contact and I have no doubt that he would have sent someone out to check the AC if I had called. Great neighborhood - very quiet. Would rent again.

Our get away...

  • 3 of 5

We stayed there last year for 3 nights and all was okay... It was a cozy cabin like feel...Nice screened porch. Master BR was okay size....very small bathroom and tiny shower. Overall it wasn't very clean.. would make a big difference if carpet was replaced. Long rocky walk to the lake and no lake views from house at least in the summer...all woods. Don't use too many towels or they will charge you more money for cleaning and will take it out of your deposit. This was a reasonable price but the fact that they charged more for using a few more towels kind of left a bad taste...

Owner's Response: This tenant was upset that she was charged $50 for using all of our towels (around 30) and leaving them for the maid to wash. The maid was paid for the extra time this took her. The place is cleaned weekly and deep cleaned every month. The carpet is relatively new and is top quality Stainmaster. The view of the lake is partially obscurred but the trees are beautiful and provide shade to the house and path. This has been a vacation rental for over five years. We have many repeat customers and very positive responses. These comments were all about the towels.

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This place is so very clean! I did not see one single bug (except for the outside flying ones!). The screened in porch was great. I could relax on theoutside couch with my laptop (the wfi worked all of the time). The kids enjoyed fishing off of the dock and i enjoyed reading under the covered part. Very calm place to stay. The air worked great, the master bed was comfortable. The kitchen was a little small but all of the appliances were updated and worked. The TV with surround sound was great!! It was easy to work with the owner. You will enjoy this little chalet in the woods!!

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you really enjoyed our lake chalet. We take great pride in making sure that our house is very clean and has everything that our guests might need or desire during their stay. The new 46" high definition TV and Surround Sound has truly enhanced the family movie night experience. The lake is now full to the brim with crystal clear water just waiting for everyone to come and enjoy. Bring your toothbrush and be ready for the time of your life. You will truly love our little lake chalet!

Our Winter Get Away

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 relaxing months at the Chalet. It is comfortable and has all the amenities needed to make you feel at home including a fireplace. The beds are very comfortable, and if you have kids they will love the spacious loft with 2 double beds and a TV. We really enjoyed the big screened-in porch overlooking the lake and sometimes ate our meals out there. One of the things we did for fun with our grandchildren ages 4 and 6 was a 20 minute trip to the "Interactive Neighborhood for Kids" in Gainesville. After 4 hours they had to be bribed to leave. We took a couple of trips to Dahlonega (30 minutes away) to go through a gold mine and visit the wonderful little shops in this quaint town. When I wasn't shopping there I was at the North Georgia Premium Outlets which is only 12 minutes away. We took a trip into Atlanta to see one of the best aquariums in the world. For dinner we often got take-out from Big D's Barbeque on the corner of Hwy 53 East & GA 400. It has yummy southern barbeque. My husband and I both love fishing and fished off the large dock where we caught lots of catfish, largemouth bass up to 5 lbs. and striper - one was 15 lbs. We observed many Charter boats fishing right in the area. We were also happy that there was a new large fishing supply and bait shop about 15 minutes away. We had a great relaxing time and hope to return next winter. The owners are easy to communicate with.
