Waleska House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10), Private mountain community

We have 3 homes in the community. There you will see over 150 more guestbook reviews. You may also download the community APP also by going to the APP store and searching LAliving 1.0. Like us on facebook "Lake Arrowhead, GA Lakefront Vacation Home, Narrows"

We may do a 2 day weekday non-peak rental. Please inquire.

We invite you to our 4 bedroom, 3 full bathroom, lakefront home at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in gated, private Lake Arrowhead community just 1 hour north of Atlanta. The dock has deep water access which provides a perfect spot for you to swim, fish, or sunbathe. There is over 60 feet of lakefront right outside your back door. The deck and dock overlook the eastern shore of Lake Arrowhead with both lake and mountain views, which are spectacular, especially in the fall.

IMPORTANT!! We only allow 10 people (including infants, children, and guests) to the home total during your stay. NO EXCEPTIONS. We are trying to be considerate to our neighbors and the community! The home is in a gated private community with security that checks people in and out.

The home includes appliances, linens, furniture, electronics, and fully stocked kitchen. Other amenities include 2 gas fireplaces, gas grill, washer/dryer, wine chiller and a Margarita machine. The home sleeps 10 which includes 2 queens, 1 Full, and a bunk bed- with full bottom and twin on top, and 1 pull out queen sleeper plus loft with day bed and trundle.

THEATER ROOM: HD cable (living room + 2 bedrooms), 2 large screen tvs, internet (WiFi) and free dialing included. The theater room includes dlp projector, theater seating, and popcorn concession machine. A pack and play and high chair are available upon request before arrival.

The theater room is UNBELIEVABLE!! I wish I put one in my regular home. It has 5 leather theater seats that have blue lights under the seats and cup holders. The seats are electric reclining which also has built in lights. The carpet has a glow in the dark confetti design. The room also has blue rope lights near the ceiling. A large theater popcorn machine sits in the corner. All the electronics are controlled by a harmony remote. No electronic knowledge needed! Just press watch tv, watch dvd, or listen to music, and the remote does the rest.


A 20 foot pontoon boat is available for rent for experienced boaters. IF you do want to rent our boat there is a minimum 3-day rental during peak season, 2-day minimum rental off peak season. The rate includes a full tank of gas and you must fill the gas tank when finished. The rate is $200/day, $1050/week. The boat is a 20 foot Bentley pontoon with a 90 hp Mercury engine. Sorry.... no tubing or any other towing. (insurance rules). Please reserve the boat early, we only have 2 boats for our 4 homes. First come, first served.

A hydro bike, 10 foot paddle board, canoe, kayak and a paddle boat are available for your enjoyment at no cost. You can not bring in your own boats, this is not our rule. Lake Arrowhead is a private lake which is subject to covenants which dictate that visitors boats are not allowed. The gate house will check the name on the boat registration with the homeowners name.

There is a hot tub for your enjoyment. It is great to soak in the tub in any season and view the mountains. We empty the water and clean the hot tub after each rental for your hot tubbing enjoyment!

Our home is a PET FREE HOUSE! 100% no exceptions!!! Please do not ask us to allow your pet. We are very strict, regardless of (pet size, temperament, or house training, etc.) in enforcing this policy. We are sensitive to guests who may have pet allergies.Not only do we have new floors, furniture, bedding, etc., but also are sensitive to guests who may have pet allergies. We remain a pet free environment to insure that we will provide a high quality home free from dander and allergens which is crucial to people with allergies. We apologize if this is an inconvenience.

We recommend trip cancellation insurance. Protect your vacation. When we reserve your rental we turn dozens of other customers away while holding the property for you. If someone cancels on us it is hard to find another renter on short notice. When my family goes on vacation we purchase trip insurance, it has saved us a few times.

The minimum age to reserve the home is 30 years old.

We have 2 other homes in the same community. The listing numbers are 359905 and 903453.

About rob leyden

We are two hard working entreprenuers with two very young children. We bought this property as an investment for our future and to be able to get away from the city life and retreat to a much more relaxing environment. Lake Arrowhead brings us to a place where we leave the stress behind and focus on family and the outdoors.

rob leyden purchased this house in 2011

Why rob leyden chose North Georgia Mountains

Roswell, GA so finding this gem, less than 1 hour from home, was the perfect investment for us. We welcome you to stay at our home and fall in love with this hidden treasure in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains - just as we have!

What makes this house unique

If you love being outdoors, Lake Arrowhead is the place for you (golf, swimming, boating, tennis, hiking, fishing, etc). Imagine a day waking up to a beautiful sunrise overlooking a tranquil lake, with deer visiting in your back yard. Enjoy breakfast outside on the deck with a beautiful view. Take a ride on a pontoon boat for a few hours or simply kayak or paddle boat along to the next cove. Travel an hour away and take in an Atlanta Braves game. Then visit some of the finest restaurants in the United States in Buckhead.....what a perfect day!

The property's location and amenities made for the perfect vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time at the lake house. Our first impression of the property itself was that it was even nicer than the photos had depicted on the internet. It's condition upon arrival was spotless and the setting was extremely quaint and provided total privacy. The dining/living room area is a great gathering place for the entire family and shares an amazing view with great lighting. The kids were totally entertained with the video game features and found the sleeping quarters to be really neat with the loft and the Mickey Mouse themed bunk beds. The entire family enjoyed multiple activities on the lake; boating, swimming, kayaking, etc. It made for a tremendous vacation.

5 stars isn't enough!

  • 5 of 5

What a magical relaxing place! We spent our mornings exploring nearby towns like Ball Ground (check out the Burger Bus!), Canton and Woodstock. Afternoons we reserved for playing and swimming in the lake and soaking up the sun. And evenings were used for playing board games and watching movies in the theater room! The house was magnificent, with more than enough space for all 7 of us. One of my favorite parts of the house is that there was enough space for all of us at the dining room table…often vacation rentals have tables for 6, so we either can’t all sit together or we all cram in! The owners were very quick to respond when we had a problem with the dishwasher. If you’re looking for a true escape – look no further. This was, by far, the most relaxing, peaceful vacation I’ve ever had. I’d definitely like to return someday.

Ideal place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great place for a family vacation, this is it. The house is terrific and the lake and amenities are awesome. My family had a great time here and we will definitely look to come back again. The house was spotless and included everything that was described in the listing. The photos on the website do not do it justice. Our grandkids had a blast in the lake and at the two gorgeous pools we had access to.

The property is very well maintained, and truly looks like it does in the pictures! Great location

  • 5 of 5

The Leydon's were very easy to deal with , very attentive and quick to respond to questions. We so enjoyed our time at Lake Arrowhead, the location of the property is spectacular, and the way the house sits up high you get a magnificent view. The accommodations were superb, they had everything you could think of, we especially enjoyed the margarita machine! We rented their pontoon boat, it was lovely to have it available. The children loved the hydro-bike, what a fun thing! The paddleboard, canoes, and nice dock made for lots of entertainment. The theater room was very fun, we especially enjoyed watching the Kentucky Derby on our own big screen! It was very comfortable and very easy to enjoy a lot of space. I would highly recommend this home!

Great home with all the bells and whistles!

  • 5 of 5

One of my best friends and I took our husbands up to this home for a long weekend. It was perfect! The location is very peaceful and serene. The boats were fun and the hot tub was clean and ready to go. We watched a movie in the movie theater both nights - we were concerned it was going to be complicated to get set up, but they had it such that you punched three buttons and you were there! We highly recommend this home; the owners were so wonderful to work with. We will be back!

Whether boating or fishing, you'll be sure to fall in love with the beauty of our lake.

The new, award winning, championship Highlands Course opened in the fall of 2008. It is now considered one of the best new golf courses in Georgia. The Highlands Course measures over 7100 yards and features full-service practice facilities including a golf range, chipping and putting greens.
