Overview

Lula House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

This 5 bedroom/4.5 bath house 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.

**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 plan to continue to make this property even better and we have no doubt that your group will thoroughly enjoy this three-level house regardless of the purpose of your trip. We've already 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.

About Jarrett & Michelle

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

Why Jarrett & Michelle chose Georgia

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 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.

What makes this house unique

The 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.

Spectacular lake view

  • 5 of 5

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.

What an amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect House for Families and Fun

  • 5 of 5

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.

WOW! What an amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

When you hear folks say... "Go find your 'Happy Place'", Sunset Summit will be what we go to in our minds forevermore. What a fabulous week! This house has everything you need to have an incredible week on the lake.

We walked in and immediately felt like we were on the set of a recently finished HGTV home! Sunset Summit is such a beautifully decorated and meticulously cared for home!

The layout of this home is perfect for large family or multiple family gatherings. The bedrooms (floor plan) are laid out perfectly for multigenerational families. Your teens can escape to the lower level for later bedtimes, while others can nap quietly during the day. Speaking of sleep, the beds are so comfortable. Each room had cozy duvet covers with soft, fresh smelling bedlinens, not scratchy cheap stuff. Fluffy towels and master baths (2 of them!) that were spa-like in feeling.

There is so much to do in the house alone - pool table, ping pong, golf arcade game, foosball, Wii games/karaoke, board games, DVDs, 2 large TV viewing areas with comfy sectional sofas, super stocked kitchen, etc. We enjoyed all of that!

You can gaze out the window at the gorgeous lake views from so many of the rooms, BUT you are at the lake so you must get outside!!! There are so many outside "amenities" too... large outdoor fire pit, grill, beautiful pool with gorgeous sunset/lake views, waterfall feature that is so relaxing, easy walk to the dock along lighted footpath and such a very, VERY quiet end of the lake. We hardly saw or heard anyone all week! It was our own private paradise!

Jarrett and Michele - You are the best to work with and are so VERY generous to share your home with us. We hesitate to say too many great things for fear we will always find Sunset Summit booked solid on VRBO! WE WILL WANT TO COME BACK NEXT SUMMER! ;)

Thank you so much for a very memorable week!

The Mohr Family

Stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

Wish I could give this lovely home a ten star rating! If you are looking to rent a 5 bedroom house on the lake, this is it! The whole experience starts from the moment you contact the owner about this property: Jarrett is quick to respond - always within the hour, usually within minutes! - and answer any questions you have. The minute you walk in the front door, you know it's going to be the best, most relaxing vacation. The views of the lake are amazing! We had a party of 13 ranging in age from 11-80. My 80 year old parents appreciated the main level master bedroom so they didn't have to climb stairs. They also had a view of the pool and the lake from their glass door that led to the pool deck. The four preteen/teen boys LOVED their "man cave" and enjoyed relaxing with ping pong, video games, TV etc after a day on the lake. They were also able to stay up late, as teens do, and not bother any of the adults trying to sleep! And though we didn't need any rearranging, prior to arrival Jarrett asked whether we needed any of the twin beds converted to king beds to accommodate our group.

When possible, we try to get a pool when renting a house and this is the best one yet... and hard to come by on Lake Lanier!! It is large with plenty of deck space, plenty of seating, floats, a hot tub and looks out over the lake with the MOST AMAZING SUNSETS!!! My 80 year old parents loved that they could watch their grand kids tube and ski from the pool deck! If we weren't on the lake, this is where we were: drinking coffee, eating our meals, reading, visiting and enjoying the view.

There are many properties to choose from on Lake Lanier, but this house has everything you will need. It is located in a nice quiet section of the lake making it perfect for swimming in the lake, very little boat traffic and did I mention the BEST SUNSETS EVER!!

(As a side note, if you need to rent a boat, the Gainesville Marina - as Jarrett suggests - is the one to go to. Sure, renting a boat can be expensive, but these guys went above and beyond giving us an extra rope for our personal float (because I forgot ours!), a gas container so we had extra gas on hand, a knee board, etc. If you go there, tell Spencer hi!! )

Thank you, Jarrett! Hope our travels bring us back your way!! Was a pleasure working with you!

Wow!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a very enjoyable week at Sunset Summitt, June 18 -25. Even before arriving, the helpfulness of the owners (Jarrett and Michelle) in answering our questions about the property and nearby boat rental was wonderful. While the pictures on the internet are beautiful, this property is even more stunning in person. Everything we could have wanted or needed was at this house; from the game room to the pool to the wet bar with ice machine to the fully equipped kitchen. We had five couples in our group and each one said they felt like they were staying with a friend and not in a rental. Jarrett and Michelle obviously take pride in this property and providing exceptional customer service! Thanks for helping making this one of our best vacations!
