About Rich & Melanie Madden
We live next door to the rental property but it is very private and we respect our guests privacy. There are woods on the other side with winter views of the lake. If there is ever any need, we can quickly be of assistance. Since we are dog lovers, your pets are welcome also. ***The pet fee is $100.00 per dog*** Maximum 2. Dogs have to be well trained and under voice command. We have nice furnishings and bedding and NOT ALLOWED ON FURNITURE OR BEDS. Must be supervised at all times. Dogs cannot be left alone in cottage or on property. Damage deposit will NOT be refunded if these requests are not followed. Thank you!
Rich & Melanie Madden purchased this House in 1957
Why Rich & Melanie Madden chose Gainesville
We have remodeled my Grandfather's cabin with updated amenities and furnishings that you will surely appreciate as appropriate for lakeside living. We have a dual zoned central heat and air, 3 full sized bedrooms and 1 full bath located between. A 4th bedroom was converted to a laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer. There is a 1/2 bath located next to the living area downstairs by the screen porch and patio. The screen porch area has rockers and a swing with ping-pong for hours of fun and relaxation. The spacious patio has an outdoor fire pit, Weber Gas grill, picnic table and chairs for family and friends to gather and share the fun. The private dock is just that-a private dock for your use and no sharing with the owner! It has a single slip, sundeck and lounge chairs. The deep water at the dock guarantees enough water for year round use.

Very happy repeat guest!
Our family really enjoyed our stay! House has everything you need! Everything in great working condition. Owners are very helpful and friendly. Excellent part of lake for kids to swim and jump off dock. Will be back!
Quaint, private, and homey cottage getaway - Everything you could need is here!
My husband and I, our 9 month old baby, and 2 dogs stayed at this cottage for nearly 2 months while we had repairs done to our water damaged home. Being displaced under such circumstances is normally very stressful, but being able to stay at this cottage made the experience so much better! The house is private and secluded - perfect for a baby :) And the house itself included all the amenities and necessities for a vacation or extended stay. The owners were so accommodating and helpful to us when we had questions or special requests. We really felt like part of the neighborhood. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat on Lake Lanier!
Wonderfully Comfortable and Spacious Lakeside Home in a Great Neighborhood
Everything went so smoothly that I felt like was at my own home. Rich & Melanie did a great job of providing a lot of nice details, like extra hangars, many towels, cooking spices, life preservers, swimming noodles, and toiletries. The beds and furniture were very comfortable and there were outdoor rocking chairs for everyone. The laundry room was huge and the home was very clean. The cable TV had a million channels and was easy to use. Also, we were only a 5 minute drive from the Port Royale Marina, where we rented a boat. One of our favorite areas was the screened-in porch, where our dog could spend quality time looking and listening for squirrels. Thanks Rich & Melanie!
We jad the perfect lake vacation and this home was everything we could ask for. Very cute, clean and nicely updated. We will definitely stay here again next Summer.
Perfect place for a relaxing get away!
The owners are very quick to respond to your needs and questions. They have stocked the house with all the things you will need for your stay. Place was very clean and everything in great working condition. The slope to dock is not too bad. The proximity to lakeside restaurants and marinas is perfect. The dock is on a pretty quiet stretch of lake. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Very pleased!
Perfect Lake Cottage
My family were able to stay here for a Long weekend. Everyone had a great time! The home is in great shape and has everything you would need for a lake home. We really enjoyed ourselves and will for sure be back!
