Private Lake Home Setting with Party Dock is Convenient to Gainesville
House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 13)
This newer lake home is the perfect spot for your Lake Lanier vacation. Located on a huge cove, this waterfront property has views of 'big water' from the dock and a large double slip dock with party deck on a quiet area of the lake in Gainesville, Georgia.
This spacious home would be perfect for a family vacation, family reunion or even a couple of families staying together. There is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy your stay in Gainesville on Lake Lanier. The property gently slopes to the water for an easy walk to the dock. The house is only a short drive from downtown Gainesville as well as Lake Lanier Islands and the Premium Outlet Mall in Dawsonville.
There are 5 bedrooms (see below), 4 full bathrooms and one half bathroom. This house has plenty of of beds-- located on 3 floors which allows for some privacy. The main living room has a wall of windows overlooking the trees and lake view through the trees, beautiful hardwood floors, a stone fireplace and vaulted ceilings.
Wifi is available and there is an office area--a perfect spot not far from other activities to get away for a little quiet.
For outdoor living, there are three deck areas – two covered decks--one with 3 ceiling fans--and a deck by the outdoor kitchen and fire pit. For entertainment, there are board games, a large flat screen, smart TV with Blu-Ray player and a shuffleboard table on the terrace level.
When you are at the lake, you can sit on the dock and enjoy the sun on the upper part of large party dock or stay below for more shade or fishing. Either location allows for a great view of lake activities. There are boats and jet skis for rent at various marinas on the lake, the closest being Port Royale. Ask about kayak and stand up paddle board rental from owner - free delivery.

About Joni Tuttle
We are from Gwinnett county Georgia and wanted a second home not too far from our primary home so we could use it often. We have since moved to the lake full time since our kids have graduated and moved out of the house. Family time is precious and being together at the lake makes it easier for us to spend some quality time as a family.
Joni Tuttle purchased this House in 2006
Why Joni Tuttle chose Gainesville
We owned a house on Lake Lanier a little further north before building this one. We desired a lot that wasn't as steep of a walk down to the lake, and this one fit the bill. No matter what the water levels are on the lake, we are able to move the dock out further so that we always have water and can get our boats in and out. The house itself is great for couples as well as families since four of the five bedrooms have their own bathroom. It has been a wonderful house for family vacations as well as entertaining.
What makes this House unique
There are many things we love about the house. The outdoor kitchen with the fire ring is one of our favorites. No matter what time of year, we use the outdoor grill and fire ring as a place to gather. The covered decks off the back of the house are good for meals and to sit and relax with a cup of coffee. The ceiling fans keep it a comfortable temperature in the warm months. The cove where our dock is located makes a great spot to sit and watch people fish, tube or ski. It is a protected spot, yet very open without being in an area where the dock/boat gets knocked around. The location on the lake is convenient; we love to take the boat over to Pelican Pete's to eat and listen to music. There is always something to do and Gainesville is 10 minutes away if we want to go shopping or go to dinner.

We had a great time on Lake Lanier! There was enough room for everyone to be comfortable, and enough common space for congregation. The outside kitchen area was great for an evening and the porches are a great space to relax. The lake is a short jaunt from the house, and if you have more than a few people laying out on the top deck of the dock you should bring a few extra chairs. BUT everything else was awesome. We'd totally stay here again!
I am so glad you enjoyed your time at our lake house. Our goal is to make sure that the house is stocked and set up for a relaxing, comfortable stay for everyone. We certainly hope you come back when you can!
Beautiful clean well maintained home and property! Nice location!
Beautiful home!! Incredible property! Plenty of room for everyone to enjoy! Really nice location on the lake in a beautiful tranquil cove! The fire pit and top of the dock were our favorite spots! Very clean fully loaded home! We will definitely be back!
Great Lake House
This home was awesome, we had 8 guys travel from Tampa Florida for a week long golf trip. This home was very comfortable, centrally located in Gainesville Georgia so you were close to everything you would need. This would be a home we would rent again.
Great family weekend getaway!
The house is fantastic for a weekend getaway. We had 8 adults and 4 kids. There was plenty of room for everyone, and so many different spaces available both indoor and out. The dock, fire pit, and rec room areas were our favs.
Lovely house on the lake!
Clean, bright house with a great view!
Beautiful home and great communication experience with the owners. Highly recommend.

There are numerous recreational opportunities around the lake--Lake Lanier Islands water park, golf, zip-lining, etc. There are wineries, breweries and hiking trails in the north Georgia area as well as some cute towns (Gainesville, Buford, Flowery Branch) with downtown restaurants and shopping.
