Great vacation spot on Lake Lanier

  • 5 of 5

Dan's place is great, a perfect size for our group of 6. The outdoor amenities are incredible--the dock is brand new and huge and the decks are great spots to hang outside. We had a great time for our long weekend!

Best vacation home on Lake Lanier

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent an 11 day vacation with our 3 adult children at Dan's lakefront house. The experience couldn't have been any better. The house has everything you could possibly need and is situated on the lake at a very good location. The dock is one the best I've seen with lots of room with table and chairs etc. There is a ski boat and wave runners available for renting which is difficult to find anywhere. Dan was very helpful and accessible if we were to need anything. Looking forward to doing it again.

Easy location, great view, very helpful homeowner

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a long weekend. It was easy to find. Very spacious for the 3 of us. Could comfortably fit 7 maybe 8. The home was clean and represented well by the photos. The homeowner was extremely helpful and readily available to answer questions. He even accommodated our last minute request to use his home.

We loved the dock and the beautiful view of the lake! Will definitely visit again!

Great family getaway to the perfect lake house!!!

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I loved this property. It was a charming lake house on a quiet cove of Lake Lanier. The house is located just minutes from Gainesville. Which is perfect if you want to have civilization nearby but still stay in a place that feels secluded as well.

The house is an older house that has been well kept and the owner is fantastic. He was there when we arrived and gave us a tour of the house.

The dock is very large and new. Plus the house comes with a Jon boat, canoes and a paddle boat free for use. The fishing is excellent in this area of the lake.

My family and I will make this an annual vacation spot and will continue to rent this house.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house is exceptionally clean and has everything you might need from pots and pans to trash bags. The layout of the house provides privacy. There's a paddleboat, a canoe, a jon boat and you can swim off the dock. Dan met us with all of the instructions we needed, from where he keeps the minnow bucket and to where the best bait store was. It has a narrow driveway, ok for my van but don't drive a bus or RV. There are places to eat, a WalMart, Dicks, etc within a few miles. The one and only problem we had was the walk up from the dock. It's far too steep for the elderly or people who have health problems. If not for that walk up I'd be happy to stay here again. It was well worth the money!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the lake and the house was all that we needed. The kids loved swimming in the lake by the dock. It was very quiet the whole time that we were there. The hot tub was great! The house was very clean and well kept.
