Guestbook comments from the manager

Good morning Kelly,

We have returned after a wonderful trip where we stayed at the 9490 Lisa Circle property that you manage and I wanted to send you an email to thank you! You were instrumental in turning what could have been a disastrous weekend into a memorable one. After we learned that we had been scammed by another renter, our emotions were all over the place. Making calls at 430pm on a Thursday seemed like we would never be able to land a house for check in the following day. Working with you was quick and efficient, you were able to walk me through the few steps that we needed to get complete and I think we came up with a great deal for us both! The house was perfect for our group! The amount of bedrooms and how they were laid out on three different levels allowed everybody to have their own space while still congregating in the main living areas. Thank you again for being so flexible and coming up with a rate that helped us out in a time of need. I hope your owners know how important it is to fill gaps and how great of an asset you are to them in that regard. Working in this industry, I appreciate your hospitality!

This house is great for entertaining: the kitchen has all the tools for large scale cooking and along with our dining room, there is comfortable seating on the decks to take in the lake as well as an extra folding table and chairs for 8 for those larger parties. We have the piano for the artists out there and downstairs you can play pool, foosball, air hockey or ping pong before taking the one minute walk down the shallow stairs to the U-shaped dock (although you may want to take a break and enjoy the view on either of the porch swings along the way.) We also have some baby toys, a stroller and a highchair to make your packing easier. The decks are huge (~48' x 12') and the lower deck is protected from rain and sun.

My family enjoyed the stay very much

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for sleeping arrangements for my crew. We had 10 people most of the time. I have a few things I would like to pass on to others who use this home. I would have liked a note telling us just some household things, like what the password was to the internet as it does not automatically connect and it was a little process to get everyone's phones to hook to it. Also, we would have liked a little note explaining the TV situation. There were three remotes to the main TV. The TV downstairs was kind of difficult to get going also. (I am not a technology person in the least and it was a bit confusing). I left a message with Andy, and he got right back to me and had someone explain it over the phone. Also, just a note on using the washer/dryer would have been helpful also.

Also, might not be a big deal to most, but I packed lightly and did not put in a hair dryer. There was not one at the house, so need to bring your own. We were there for 4 nights, but ran out of toilet paper, ran out of paper towels, was no hand soap, ran out of dishwasher soap, etc. Just might want to bring all of that also. The gas grill really was not usable as it was really rusted out, so tried to use the briquette grill. Never could get it hot enough with the humidity so grilling out was not much of an option so cooked everything inside.

And just a thought for anyone with bad knees, older, etc. There are a LOT of stairs going down to the water. It was fine for us. It made us stay at the dock much longer, no running back and forth to the house/water, which was great, but definitely something to consider. You will need to bring your own lawn chairs for the dock.. There were just 3 chairs down on the dock.

Loved the deck, loved the kitchen and view. Could use some updating, but all in all, we felt very at home in this house. It is perfect for a large group.

One final note, the driveway is tough! Our van had to take two tries to get up and out of it. The passengers had to get out and walk to the top for it to make it out. So just plan ahead in that regard.

I would stay here again if we ever get to Georgia. I would just be more prepared when I got there with supplies.

Nice home for a group gathering but difficult logistics around property

  • 3 of 5

Once you maneuver the very, very steep driveway, the home is quite welcoming to a large group. Adequate # of rooms for sleeping; great common spaces (main & lower level) for group activities. With 80+ steps down (steep walkway) to the boat dock, this rental is not 'accommodating' to children &/or adults that are not physically fit. Owner's watercraft occupy two spaces, leaving only the front of the dock for renter's boat. Encountered non-responsiveness from Renter, i.e. did not respond to emails prior to arrival (with questions regarding parking options) and have not received refund for damage deposit & mutually agreed cleaning rebate for multiple day booking.

Owner's Response: Hello, Security deposits are automatically issued a week after guests’ stays and I see that the full refund for this stay is scheduled to be sent tomorrow. I am glad that you found our home welcoming and sorry to hear that you were inconvenienced by the steepness of the driveway and the many steps down to the dock. As most of the choicest properties on Lake Lanier, this home sits on an incline, providing great magical views and access to deep water. Dozens of multi-generational families with children and adults of all ages enjoy the property every year and have done so for years. Withstanding, I can understand that the steepness and number of stairs can be an issue to persons with physical challenges. Regarding the parking and boat issues that you bring up, we are surprised as we have no record of any correspondence on either subject with you or your party. Similarly, we have no record of correspondence or contact with the person who wrote this review. Sincerely, Andy

A beautiful - quiet place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We brought 7 couples down for a marriage conference at Free Chapel and we had plenty of room and it was so relaxing. The view is amazing especially at sunrise and sunset. The drive way did scare a few of us but we eventually got comfortable and drove up and down it on our own. Well except for one, she never did drive up it. Lol. But I highly recommend this home. Hope to stay here next year, unless we have more than 7 couples.

Thanks Andy for taking care of everything.

And thank you again for sharing your home with us. God Bless!

Lake Lanier has been the playground to the Metro-Atlanta area for years & this location, only 7 miles off of exit 17 of GA 400, is ideal. Although you are about 30 minutes from the best shopping, restaurants, services, and entertainment, the last few miles will feel like a country drive through hills and valleys, past old churches and barns as you catch glimpses of the lake. Your spot on the lake is so close to big water and yet sheltered on a calm inlet. The area marinas offer boat and jet ski rentals, there is a public boat ramp a mile from the house, and a small beach is across the inlet from your dock. You will be at the doorway of the North GA Mountains which means nature's beauty is a short drive away. If you need to get to the city your drive will be less than an hour. Our neighborhood is quiet and peaceful so it is not well suited to night time parties. On all other counts, our Lake Lanier Retreat truly offers the best of both worlds.
