Charming Lake Cottage convenient to land and water Attractions no matter what season you stay.

Back by popular demand …… our Lake Lanier Cottage is once again available on VRBO …..

Rent for the month, the week or the weekend. We even have a special rate for those who want a late check out on Sundays to ensure you maximize your lake time.

So close to Alpharetta and Atlanta that you can enjoy lake life all summer long while working in the Perimeter.

Our two bedroom, two bath lake cottage has a finished terrace level and can sleep 6 comfortably. A large deck overlooks a quiet, deep water cove and single slip covered dock with swim platform. There is even a paddle board available for your enjoyment. Bald Ridge Marina, Exit 15 off GA 400, is within walking distance from the cottage where you can launch your boat or rent one. This prime location offers an easy commute to Alpharetta, Atlanta and the Airport, a day of golf at Hampton Golf Village or a quick shopping trip to the Dawsonville outlet mall. Have dinner at one of the many lake restaurants that you can easily boat to or head to Cumming’s many new restaurants off Market Place Blvd such Provino’s, Long Horns or Taco Mac. A fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and gas grill are available for those who’d rather dine in.

When not on the lake you’ll enjoy an open concept kitchen & family room with a wood burning fireplace, dining for 6 +, flat screen TV and access to large deck with a lovely propane fire pit. The master is equipped with a queen bed, dresser and TV. The second bedroom has two twin beds and the terrace level has a queen sofa bed with a large flat screen TV. Free WiFi and Direct TV are included.

This property is the ideal family vacation or a weekend get-a-way in a quiet neighborhood where we’ve lived for over 30 years ….. so no wild and crazy parties. We love our neighbors, and respect their homes, families and privacy. When you're not here we are so we hope you will cherish the Summer House as much as we do.

About Susan England

We've lived on Lake Lanier in this same neighborhood for 35 years. Once we became empty nesters, we sold our original lake house and bought this perfect cottage so we could remain in this cove close to family and friends while allowing us to split our time between here and FL.

Basically, we are "sharing" our home with you which is why you will find a clean, fully stocked home for your vacation rather than a "rental unit". When you aren't here we and our family are. My spice draw is your spice draw, my herb garden is your herb garden:)

We had this cottage on the VRBO listing a few years ago and received great ratings from our great renters - so we are no strangers to delivering excellent service.

Susan England purchased this house in 2012

Why Susan England chose Lake Lanier

This is the ideal location to vacation - close to everything with deep water to ensure the dock will be afloat 12 months out of the year. And commuting to work down 400 is a breeze.

What makes this house unique

Lake Lanie's blue/green water is calming while sitting on the dock or taking a sun-set cruise but crazy fun while water skiing or jet skiing with family and friends.

Perfect house on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. The house is beautiful and extremely clean. Everything you may need is available. It has direct access to a very pleasant part of the lake and swimming and paddle boarding were great. Will definitely come back!

The owners went above and beyond and provided everything we needed! They were easy to contact and even let us check in early. It was well stocked with everyday items. We only needed to buy food. The layout of the house was just right. Our family loved staying there and would go back anytime! It was also very clean and well kept with all modern appliances.

We loved the location. It was close to all the convienciences of stores and places to eat as well as retail shopping.

We definitely recommend staying here.

Perfect lake house w/ dock.

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal lake house rental w/ dock which included everything you could want and more! VERY clean house that didn't have that 'lake musk' or anything associated with a typical lake type property. It was comfortable, clean, convenient (by water & road) to everything. Dock was great as well and even though it didn't have a sundeck on top, it had plenty of space on the dock next to the boat to lay and relax! We will be back to this property anytime we rent a lake house in the future.

*one note is the path to the lake is steep but easy path for the elderly, but that also means you have DEEP water at the dock so it is a trade off typically found at the lake. It was ideal for our family anyway!

Owner's Response: You all were great! Loved seeing the boys fishing on the dock. Loved how polite all the children were and hearing how much they enjoyed the house and their stay. Enjoyed chatting with your Dad. It's so nice to see such a close family on vacation. It's what's its all about. Can't wait to have you back. Susan and Bill

I can't say enough about how much I liked my stay in this wonderful home. The owners furnished it with all the little items for kitchen and bath that travelers most often have to purchase as soon as they arrive. Although my stay was during the winter months, so I can't comment on the popular boating activities, there was still a few die-hards on the boats fishing and touring, and the deck offered a perfect view of it. The boat dock for the house was in great condition and easily accessible to the house. The home location was excellent within quick access to Route 400 and all the shopping imaginable in nearby Cumming just 3 minutes away. Midway between northern Atlanta and Dahlonega provided many travel options. The home electronics, TV, DVR, DVD, Wi-FI, laundry equipment worked perfectly without any issues. The living areas were very comfortable and the full size kitchen, not a galley kitchen as many rentals offer, was superb. For a two bedroom the home had a much larger feel due to the downstairs area, which also offered the second full bath, and direct TV. The home was very clean and obviously well cared for. The driveway was rather long and gradually sloped downward toward the house, and walking on the flagstone steps leading to the house was somewhat unnerving when carrying gear, but overall this was a miner inconvenience, and the owners are aware of this and said they are planning to improve upon it. The owners, who lived nearby, were extremely helpful which made the rental experience even more comfortable. I am definitely looking forward to returning for another stay.
