|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
This 5 bedroom/4.5 bath house on 4.5 acres is perfect for enjoying amazing views of Lake Lanier year round. When you're not enjoying the views or spending time in the lake or pool, the house also has 60' flat screen TV's in both the living room and game room that are great for watching sports and movies. In addition, there are two master suites at Sunset Summit. The upstairs master has beautiful views of the lake from the bedroom and bathroom and a large balcony to relax on while you enjoy your morning coffee or wind down at the end of your day. The master on the main floor has direct access to the pool deck and views of both the pool and lake. The dual masters ensure that multiple people have equally impressive views and amenities. We have additional photos and information available at our website. There is also a fresh water 1/4 acre pond on the property that you can also fish on.
**Please note that the pool will be closed and covered from October 17 - March 16, each year. The spa is available, however, year-round.**
The home furnishings and floor plan are perfect for a small group or multi-family/multi-generational groups. This property was custom built by a home builder and every detail from the interior to the massive retaining walls and landscaping were meticulously executed. The home was further renovated three years ago. Michelle and I continue to improve the property where possible and we have no doubt that your group will thoroughly enjoy this three-level house regardless of the purpose of your trip. Through the years we've booked groups for family reunions, friend gatherings, Road Atlanta race weekends, races at the Olympic Rowing Venue, lodging for a wedding party at Walters Barn, and group fishing trips.
This home has amazing open water lake views that are unobstructed from most rooms in the house and the pool deck which is very uncommon for Lake Lanier. There is also a double-slip dock with party deck that you can use with your own boat or rent one from Gainesville Marina. We also have a four seat pedal boat available for our guests. This northeastern part of the lake is calm for fishing or water skiing or just playing around the water or using our pedal boat.
Don Carter State park is directly across the water from the house. This is the only state park on Lake Lanier (all other parks are federally run). The park includes 1,300 acres with great amenities such as horseback riding trails, hiking/walking trails, sand beach, camping and cottage sites (please ask us about how we can accommodate larger groups than 14 if needed). The park can be easily accessed with our pedal boat or your own boat/rental boat. For further information on the park, please see the included link in the 'Links & Video' section of this listing.
Last but not least, this home is very convenient to multiple venues including: Chateau Elan, Road Atlanta, Olympic Rowing Venue, Walters Barn wedding venue, UGA, Gainesville, Cumming, and the North East Georgia Mountains. Please contact us if you are attending an event in any of these areas and are looking for a getaway with amazing views but within close proximity. We look forward to helping families and friends make wonderful memories for years to come.
Michelle and I live in Atlanta and have always loved Lake Lanier. We've had a boat on the lake since 2007 and finally took the leap to own a house on this beautiful lake.
Jarrett & Michelle purchased this house in 2014
We've both always wanted to own property on the water and this home has some of the best views we've ever seen on Lake Lanier. Because 99% of homes on Lake Lanier have Corp of Engineers property between their property and the water, most homes have no view or at best partial/seasonal views. This home has unobstructed, open-water views from most rooms in the house. The property is not in a subdivision and has 4.5 acres of nature to enjoy including a fresh water pond and long winding driveway. You feel secluded yet close to all the amenities of Gainesville. The North Georgia Mountains are also in close proximity and you can see them from parts of the property. Sunset Summit has beautiful views and scenery year round which is unique to most lake houses.
This home was also extremely well built with a lot of custom features and was recently renovated. We are looking forward to sharing this property and helping others create lasting memories on Lake Lanier.
This 4.5 acre property has amazing views of Lake Lanier from most windows in the house and also has fall and winter views of the North Georgia Mountains. The house also includes dual master bedrooms and a beautiful pool and hot tub overlooking the water. There is also a short walk to the lake with a double-slip dock with party deck that you are free to use with your boat or our paddle boat while you visit the property. Lastly, the only state park on Lake Lanier is directly across the water from this home. The park offers additional amenities that are easily accessed via water from this home.
First of all I would like to say that the owners were great. They responded to email and phone calls right away and cheerfully answered all of our questions about the property.
The layout is well suited for multiple families and is accessible (3 steps) on the main level to handicap individuals. The property was clean and well maintained.
The house offers something for everyone with a great game room, boat dock, swimming pool and hot tub. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to whip up a gourmet meal. We have never stayed at another rental house that had a comparably stocked kitchen.
Last, but not least, the view is incredible as are the sunsets.
We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.
Beautiful home loved every detail! Will definitely go back, the owner is very caring, on top of everything.
It was a wonderful home and the owners were very attentive. We planned out first family multigenerational vacation with our adult children, spouses and grandchildren. It was a wonderful place with plenty of room. Thanks again for making our first annual family vacation a huge success.
I would definitely stay here again. The amenities were great---->especially the kitchen well stocked with plenty of cookware. Enjoyed the built in swimming pool with hot tub. The layout of the home lends itself to multiple families affording lots of privacy. This place has a lot to offer and anyone staying here will not be disappointed.
Our friends rented this house for a week for them and their extended family and luckily we were invited along! The view and house are beautiful. The pool is great. The best part it was very clean and had everything you needed. I was truly impressed! We are from the St Louis area & it was worth the drive!! The guys played golf 4 times this week so they were happy!
Sunset Summit was perfect for us. Two families came together, four adults, and 5 five children. We loved that there were two masters, and that two of the rooms had more than one bed so the kids could each have their own bed. The house is clean, and has everything you could possibly need for a get-away, including floating rafts for the pool,. Not to mention the kitchen is very well stocked. Our two families have stayed at many rental houses together, and this was the best stocked house. Lots of dishes, plastic cups and plates for the kids, various kitchen tools, and even had a juice press for the limes for the mojitos.
We loved having the pool. The kids used it nearly every day. We also liked having the lake too, and used that several days. We bought a mega raft for all to float on, and the kids would jump off and have a blast. We used the paddle boat to transport the adults and the cooler. The fish pond was a lovely touch as well. Beautiful lily pads that even had flowers.
The game room was a HUGE hit! When we asked the children what they liked most about the house, that was number one for many. We used everything the house had to offer, including the fire pit.
The only downside was that a couple of the bedrooms didn't have drawers for clothes and stuff. The one room with the twin beds has shelving, with cabinets underneath, but they are blocked by the beds. We ended up pushing the beds 90 degrees to open one up for use.
Jarrett, the owner, is amazing. So very quick in responding to emails. He even did some local research for us before we arrived, including making a phone call or two to get some information. We hope to go back to Lake Lanier in a couple of years, and will definitely try and get this house again.
