“Great amenities, best host”
Reviewed June 1, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The best host you could ask for. I brought down a group of college alumni for Memorial Day weekend. The location is perfect. And the house is gorgeous. You've got full access to all of its amenities, fire pit, dock, bar. Highly, highly recommend to anyone with a decent sized group looking for a place right on the water.

Dear Colin,

Thank you so much for this great review of the property and its amenities. I am also speechless for your awesome appreciation of out services and couldn't help but be humbled by "best host you could ask for." I hope to have you back in the future at this property or another of my Lake Lanier properties. And next time, you might want to also consider renting one of our available boats to further enhance your stay. Thank you so much!!!

Thank you so much for the great review. We strive to acquire this type of property, which offers so much privacy while bringing everyone together in a cozy, warm, and homey setting. As for the water level, we now have a dock move program that pushes the dock out into deep water during the drought and brings it back in as the water level rises. So, we hope that you'll be back in the future to enjoy our deep water, drought or no drought.

Thank you and all the best!

“Very homey, nice setting, great home away from home”

Okay, so our group has rented more luxurious accommodations in the past, but the group was smaller this year, so we didn't need a larger house. So nice that there was ample parking. A lot of even bigger rentals do not have this nice of a parking area. Nice quiet area with easy access to local grocery stores and restaurants - and the new Atlanta Botanical Gardens is just up the road. If you just need to run out for ice, just head back out to the main road and turn left. There is a little store just perfect for that. Actually with three refrigerators, we would not have needed ice, but after finding a big ice-cream maker on the premises, we just had to have some home churned ice cream. There is ample dining at the large dining area, and the living room was perfect. We made use of the big outside bbq grill after getting some propane for it. The kids loved the pool table downstairs as well as the popcorn machine. The downstairs kitchenette was really handy to store overflow of food in. We used all three refrigerators for our crowd for a week. Thanks for having a good washing machine and dryer, too. We streamed meetings on the big TV in the living room. Internet connection was very good. Wish we could meet here during the summer as the lake access is the best! The big kitchen made it easy for multiple cooks to put together our scrumptious meals. The Super Kroger a few miles away had everything we needed for our sumptous feasting...and cheap gas (all things being relative). All plumbing worked well (hey, we have had some disastrous places in the past!). We were advised to take quick showers, and since no one was a linger-in-the-shower type, it was easy to accommodate the request. After some back and forth emails so the owner could ensure we were not going to ruin his property with a party crowd, renting was a very easy process.

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay and provide feedback on our accommodations. Your highlights of the main features of the property are awesome. I am sure they will help our future guests decide as they look for a great lake house with "best lake access," plenty of storage for food, pool table, poker/game table, and home theater, etc. Your feedback is much appreciated. Thank you!

“Good relaxing home with features”
Reviewed November 10, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This home has 5 bedrooms, a media room and full facilities for a family stay. Enough refrigerators to keep all the food you need for meals. Beds were really comfortable and the owner supplied enough towels, supplies and TP in the bathrooms. Well decorated, but appears to be a project in progress. Some design defects with stairs to lowest level and the kitchen icemaker could not produce enough ice, so bring an extra bag. Icemakers in other two refrigerators not active.

You can use the dock and kayaks for going out on the lake, which is outstanding versus other properties we rented in the past.

Overall, this is a good value since we had 4 separate families for our party and everyone was happy with every minute of our stay

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay. We highly value feedback because it helps us see the property from the eyes of our guests whom we strive to please and delight. As the owner of several high-end vacation rentals on lake Lanier, it can be said that this rental and all the others in fact are and always will be a "project in progress," as my staff and I keep improving them. We've recently added the fifth bedroom, a full bath, and a bar to the terrace level to complement the game and media rooms that open up to a porch, which itself offers a beautiful view and easy walk to the lake. This is 95% done as we're about to add a gym with exercise gear and perform the final touch-ups.

We offer 3 refrigerators for the convenience of our guests. The extra 2 are for storage only and do not dispense ice indeed. We will consider the feedback, though, and add a water line to at least one of them.

Thank you so much!
