3BR/2BA Large 2200 SqFt. - Very Deep Water - Mid Lake at Browns Bridge
About Property Manager
We are a couple over 50 shall we say. We started renting a lake home over 15-18 years ago by offering it to customers and friends. Soon they asked if they could pay us to rent it. That evolved into us offering our lake home at very low and affordable rates so others could enjoy what we were so fortunate to have available. We believe that we continue to offer our lake home at a very competitive price and even below the market rate. We do this to cover cost like insurance and taxes and do not need to charge the highest rate possible and the home is not used as an income stream that we use to live on. The income coves cost and allows us to improve the home so that one day when we retire it will be a nice home to future guest and to when we can enjoy it full time.
Property Manager purchased this House in 2018
Why Property Manager chose Gainesville
We still own a home in Cumming and on the south end near Bald Ridge Marina. We love it and have rented it short term for 18 years however it is on the south end and too far up Bald Ridge Creek. And as you know as of April 18, 2019 it became illegal to rent a home on the lake in Forsyth for less than 30 days. So be aware of this. This gave us great experience in renting and it also made us realize the importance of living ( or renting) a home closer to "mid lake" or half way between the south and north end of the lake. We have been thrilled with the location and find it so easy to get anywhere and explore the lake quickly and easily. It is also about 1/2 mile to the closest convenience store ( and ramp) and can be within tons of retail, restaurants and shops within in 5 miles. We love our new location but please do enjoy it soon as we plan to move in to the home in May of 2020 full time.
What makes this House unique
WiFi Signal can be picked up at the dock by our standard cell phone and laptop. That is convenient ! We have owned on the south end of the lake and also on the north end. The location of this house is perfect and one day will be the home we retire to because it is what we consider to "in the middle of the lake", meaning half the lake is south of us and half to the north. Also our home/dock is not down a long creek or finger but instead about 100 yards from Big Water and the large Browns Bridge itself. One of the most fortunate things is that we have a small piece of land that juts out beside our dock and therefore blocks the wakes so our dock while super close to big water, it sits very camely in the water and does not bob up and down and in fact has very little movement. The house. We love the set up. While you walk in on the same level as the bedrooms and one of the dens that are all upstairs, you go to the lower level and all your awake time is spent there in the den and kitchen, There is lots of windows to the exterior so it is considered very bright and open. The laundry room and game room also with a bathroom are on this lower level. All of this has two sets of double doors out to the deck and a short walk to the lake. The dock and water can easily been seen from this lower level ( and upper level of home).
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Family Labor Day week end
House for in top conditions! Clean, well furnished
Easy access to lake. Beautiful view
Everything was convenient
Mark was great providing all the information we needed thank you!
Awesome place with awesome location on Lake Lanier!!!!
We had a wonderful 5 night stay. Everything was exactly as described. The owner was excellent to communicate and work with. He had thought of everything to make our stay perfect. The place was very clean with great indoor space as well as large deck. Very nice cove with perfect location on the lake. We cannot wait to return!!!
Thank you Sheila and family. It was great having you as a repeat guest. The location as close as it is to Pelican Pete's and Port Royale Marina at Browns Bridge is great for gas, rentals and a restaurant overlooking the water.
Our guest enjoying their stay is so important to us.
The house was just as advertised.
Mark was very accommodating. The house was just as advertised. I rented a boat and the marina was a short distance from his house. Middle of the lake was a good location. Would definitely stay again.
Aaron we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We have managed 2 lake front properties 15 years and honesty and attention to detail is important to us. The location about halfway up the lake is great. Literally within 60 seconds you can be under the bridge and deciding to go north or south on the lake. The house you can see is in great condition and plenty large. Look forward to seeing you next year.
Excellent place and location! Loved it.
Mark was excellent to deal with. He even met us at the dock when we arrived and helped carry luggage up from boat! He was very attentive to our needs but never over-bearing.
The dock and cove was exactly what we were looking for. Excellent neighbors and the dock location exceeded our expectations. It’s a fairly easy walk to the dock (until you’re a bit elderly- which we aren’t yet :)). We have golden doodles and so did the neighbor, it was the best. Thoroughly enjoyed watching our family (including fur babies) have a great time.
House was as described, unique floor plan, but loved that the main space was downstairs with the lake level.
Sleeping is upstairs and the beds were fine. Nothing to complain about at all.
The kitchen meets the needs of a stay, however is fairly basic. Our needs were easily met.
We gave a 5 star on cleanliness, giving lenience since a long term renter had just moved out that morning.
HOWEVER... if you are looking for a lake stay, dock play area with beautiful views and just enjoying family time, I would recommend this location to everyone (especially with dogs and boat). EXCELLENT.
Wish we had more time to stay longer. A great house that is nicely updated and furnished and well maintained. It was exactly as advertised. Was in a very nice neighborhood and felt very safe. Had everything we needed. Mark was very easy to work with and communicate with. He answered phone and text quickly with any question. A level front lot and plenty of room to park. Had a very large deck off back of the house with plenty of seating. We really liked that we could see the dock and water from every room on the back side of the house. The kitchen, and very large family room with pool table, large dining room/kitchen table seating 8 people, laundry room and full bath were all downstairs on the lake level so you can easily walk onto deck and down to the lake. Location on the lake was so convenient to the big water and by water as close as 1/2 of a mile to Port Royale Marina for gas, supplies and boat rentals, and Pelican's Pete Tiki Bar and Grill that serves lunch and dinner. So loved the location to "big water".
Dock was in very deep water and had a beautiful view out to big open water. The walk to the dock had a nice path with wood chips and nicely trimmed and was an easy walk to and from the dock. Dock was a double decker dock and upstairs was an even better view of big water for just relaxing. The dock lower level was larger than most and had lots of room for our things. The dock is protected by a small peninsula that sticks out near the dock and so there are wakes from boats because they are blocked so the dock sits there quiet and level even on weekends with lots of boats going by. We are definitely coming back and will bring the whole family.
Tanner thank you for the very thorough review. It is important to us that our guest enjoy their stay and we try to think of all we can that will make it an enjoyable stay. We look forward to having you again.
