Incredible Lake Views, Large Lawn and Beach, Dock with Pontoon Boat
I have been going to Lake Lanier since 1955. My father built the original Renlim Retreat. In the early 1990s, I purchased the property and built a new and improved Renlim Retreat. I have decided to offer our property as an opportunity for others to enjoy and make lifelong memories. I will do everything I can to make your stay enjoyable.
HicksMilner@me.com purchased this Resort in 1993
Why HicksMilner@me.com chose Dawsonville
Renlim Retreat offers over 3-plus acres of privacy on a quiet section of Lake Lanier. I built a lakefront home that offered my family and guests a place to enjoy boating, swimming, fishing and incredible views. A grand front lawn overlooks the lake and allows guests to enjoy fun games and activities. A short stroll from the home to the lake and dock make it comfortable on guests of all ages.
What makes this Resort unique
Renlim Retreat is a privately owned home that includes many unique entertaining spaces. A vaulted ceiling screened porch overlooks the front lawn and the lake. This space offers guests a place to gather for meals or cocktails. The two outdoor decks provide an oversized grill and spectacular views of the lake. The terrace level offers a fireplace, bar with ice maker, flat screen TV and pool table.
NO SMOKING INSIDE HOUSE.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.

Most Incredable Lake House Ever
I have never seen or been in such an incredible Lake House!
Everything was first rate.
Perfect in Every Way
Others have used this same phrase to describe Renlim Retreat and we don't like to be redundant, but it's the only phrase that sums up this amazing home and property. The location is ideal, at the end of a curvy private road with complete privacy and surrounded by water on three sides, yet just 5 miles from supermarkets (Publix and a giant Kroeger), liquor store, restaurants, and shops. The house is large, comfortable, beautifully designed and laid out to afford privacy for each bedroom suite, and includes everything that one would need when on vacation. All appliances, dishware, kitchen utensils, furnishings, etc. are of top quality. It's incredibly easy and fun to work with the owners - this is the third time that our group of college friends (40 years out of college now) have rented this lovely home, and for this most recent visit our group traveled a total of about 30,000 miles R/T to be together. We're so spoiled by Renlim retreat that we don't think that we could go anywhere else at this point. We rented the owner's pontoon boat this year, and we were so glad that we did - the dock and boat are right there, and the boat is luxurious and beautiful, perfect for exploring Lake Lanier. The grounds of the property are meticulously maintained, as is the house itself, with more improvements being made every year (although we never think that any improvements are ever needed, but the owners are good at anticipating guest needs!). Each bedroom is individually climate-controlled, which is another plus. When the weather is good, we spend most of our time sitting and eating on the screened-in porch - it's so comfortable and the view at all times of day just can't be improved upon, from beautiful sunrise to glorious sunset.
Our family and some family friends had the distinct privilege of staying at Renlim Retreat in November. It's difficult to put into words how beautiful this property is and how gracious and accommodating the owners are. The property has incredible views and the house has premium everything (appliances, electronics, sound system, etc.). We've been to many lake homes over the years and they all pale in comparison. There is plenty of room and always something to do. I can't recommend this property highly enough. If you are looking for a 5 star private lake house getaway there is no reason to look any further.
TOTAL PERFECTION IN EVERY WAY!!!!
Our family has rented Renlim twice and we will definitely do so again next year!!! We have rented other places in the area, but NONE compare to Renlim. It is total perfection in every way -- a true 5 star lake house -- a resort all to itself!!!!! It exceeds all our expectations. The owner and his family go above and beyond to make sure you have EVERYTHING you could ever need. We have a few older family members and having easy access to the lake and all the lake activities is a must for us and this place is certainly ideal for this and ideal for us in every way. Thank you Hicks and family for allowing us to have another magical family vaca in your beautiful lake home.
AMAZING....MORE THAN EXPECTED...NO DISAPPOINTMENTS
Rented Renlim Retreat for 6 nights in July for our family reunion of 14. The house is amazing and not your typical rental vacation home. The owner and his family were a pleasure to work with and went out of their way to make sure we had to best possible experience. Perfect Lake House!!!!!!
Our family has rented many North Georgia luxury vacation homes over the last 12 years. No other rental came close to the experience we had. Make sure to include the pontoon rental in your vacation. Access to the lake completes the Lake Lanier Experience. This vacation property will be part of our families vacation plans for years to come.
