About the property

Large House With Privacy, Own Dock and partydeck at the end of a cove location.

Lanier Laptime is your gateway to "laketime".

This house will accommodate small or large groups in two full stories and long sleeping loft. Large windows opens up to the nature and the lake. There are two long decks along the house where to sit and enjoy. Two bedrooms are on the first level, along with large kitchen and a bathroom with shower. The dining area has 10' long table, bar table and a sofa for admiring the view from giant window. You can enjoy the fireplace with gas logs and watch TV from 60' smart TV with family members and friends. In addition you can utilize the bluray player, Roku and internet radio.

Going up steel spiral staircase you will find the Master Bedroom with 20' tall window, wood burning fireplace with gas starter and room to let worries float away. Master bathroom has jacuzzi, shower and his/hers sinks. Living room has sofa and surround sound system with another 60' smart TV, including a Netflix and other internet videos. Naturally there is Bluray player and Roku here as well. On second level there are two sliding glass doors to outside deck facing the water.

Going up another set of spiral staircase you will find long loft area with queen bed and place for kids to play - spread out. It has three windows towards the lake and couple of seats for reading and relaxing.

This property has it's own dock with party deck and there are four kayaks available for renters to use. The cove is away from open waters and fast boats, so it is a good area to experience lake kayaking. Life vests and paddles are also included.

You can bring your own boat to the house, closest public ramp is about a mile away. Please note the water levels, the bottom of the cove is at 1065', so if current lake level is close to that, please check the draft of your watercraft.

There is a portable cowboy-style firepit and eight stackable chairs if you'd like to roast marshmellows or prepare food by the lake in the evening. The easy path from house to shore is lit with LED lights and the area is neat and mowed.

The recently renovated 28x24 dock with furnished partydeck includes sunshade, dining set seating 6, charcoal grill, zero gravity lounge etc for spending time on the lake. You can bring your own boat or jet skis and launch it from public park mile and a half away, or rent those from either of marinas closeby.

About Heikki Rinta-Koski

Living in Suwanee with wife and daughter, grew up in Finland

Heikki Rinta-Koski purchased this house in 2015

Why Heikki Rinta-Koski chose Gainesville

We fell in love with unconventional style and good quality materials of this house. The space may be larger than we need, but it has also benefit being able to entertain larger group of friends.

What makes this house unique

The views to the lake are great, and they can be enjoyed from multiple rooms and areas. The cabin is secluded, quiet neighborhood where you can hear rooster while sipping morning coffee outside on the deck. Convenient to groceries and even outlet shopping makes lake weekends trouble free, we can do spur of the moment meals and snacks. Location allows shorter visits from home without issues.

Great Thanksgiving week with our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week with our family from the East Coast. This house worked perfect for our family, the older Grandparents were able to stay on the ground floor with no need to climb the stairs. The remaining family upstairs did share the upstairs bathroom that had curtains instead of a door. We look forward to staying here during the summer sometime & take advantage of the lake activities.
