Overview

About the property

Quaint 2-bedroom, 1.5 bath lakefront cottage -- close to the water, great views

FishHook is a timeless and unique “Hemingway style” cottage, offering an unforgettable Lake Lanier experience. A “stone’s throw” from the shoreline, this home sits less than 100 feet from the water’s edge at the mouth of a wide cove with deep water and main channel access. A private, two-story double slip dock is just steps away down a gently-sloping, grassed lot and is well-equipped for your stay on the water with plenty of options for lovers of sun and shade. There are both dining and bistro tables, swivel rockers, lounge chairs, and umbrellas, and at the end of the day, make sure you take a leisurely stroll through the 2 acres of Corp-owned property adjacent to our lot and celebrate the sunset!

Within minutes of your arrival, you'll realize that FishHook is truly a special place, full of character and nostalgic charm – a one of a kind lake cottage. Extensive stonework highlights the home’s exterior -- accenting a patio, fire pit and summer kitchen -- while the home’s tongue and groove wood interior plays up to an artful blend of vintage and new. Rustic lighting, rich wood and fabric accents, natural fiber rugs, and bamboo occasional pieces have been tastefully blended with new inspiration to create the signature "Hemingway" style. Original brick floors ... vaulted, suspended beam ceiling ... brick fireplace and louvered windows maintain the charm of this quintessential lakeside cottage while granite counter tops, stainless kitchen appliances and new hardwood floors in the bedrooms add a modern flair.

You’ll fall in love with the open floor plan and simple living of this single-story cottage. It's a layout that allows you to really enjoy the company of those you call "family". The kitchen, family room and dining room all open onto a spacious 10’ x 30’ screen porch complete with dining table and additional casual seating. The kitchen is fully-equipped, even for the most discerning of chefs, and meals can be served informally at the eat-in island with seating for 5, at the dining table with seating for 6, or alfresco on the porch. There are two beautifully appointed bedrooms – a king master with half bath and flat screen Smart TV and a second bedroom sleeping five in a twin over full bunk with twin trundle and a separate twin bed. Indoor amenities include central A/C and heat, wood-burning fireplace, ceiling fans, AT&T U-verse, WiFi, 50" flat-screen Smart TV, DVD player, and stainless dishwasher, stove and refrigerator.

Under a canopy of native hardwoods, the house benefits from generous amounts of shade and invites you to let the outdoors in. Enjoy the cool breeze off the lake from any number of places – the screened-in porch that runs the entire length of the house, the stone fire pit patio with Adirondack chairs, or the outdoor kitchen. With 180 degree lake views from most anywhere on the property, your only decision will be, “Where do I want to spend the next hour?” You'll never tire of the beautiful views that surround this place.

So, if you're looking for a place that will take you back to an easier, simpler time, a place to reconnect with yourself, family and friends, then we invite you to experience FishHook! We hope you leave "hooked!"

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Had a super time at FishHook. It was a lovely spot. The house was immaculate and well-outfitted. Very comfortable. Enjoyed sitting in the Adirondack chairs overlooking the lake.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a great time! I LOVE to cook, so I take great pride in having a well-stocked kitchen. I don't want have to pack up my kitchen at home to take with me to make our favorite meals. It's important that I have exactly what I need at my fingertips. Thank you for sharing that tidbit in your review!

Great location for a lake front vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with how clean and comfortable the property is. The kitchen is very well equipped, as we both love to cook. The location on the lake is very scenic, and peaceful. We really enjoyed our time at "Fishook", and hope to return.

Excellent experience start to finish

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend enjoying the gorgeous views from the cottage porch, top of the dock and relaxing around the fire pit. Debbie was so kind to check in with us about changing weather (never fun when you think your vacation may be rained out) but the weather was a perfect 10!

Everything in the cottage was well stocked and organized neatly. Little details that were so helpful - an ice bucket/large tray, and an ice machine to take cold water and snacks up to the dock. What a nice way to limit extra trips!

The porch was an ideal place to spend time. With a ceiling fan, over stuffed pillows on the couch and a post card view of the lake through the trees - If I had my choice, I would've spent my entire weekend there.

My family was so taken with how special the cottage was and the beauty of the location, my mom is already asking about a "mother/daughter only weekend" and my parents want to stay for their 50th anniversary. How lovely - Thank you Debbie

Owner's Response: Kelly, our wish is to provide a special place for friends and family to "just be", without all of life's distractions. It's our job to think of the little things, so you don't have to! I love that you and your family enjoyed your time with us and are already planning future family celebrations at FishHook! We look forward to you coming back!

Loved our week stay at Fish Hook will definitely recommend to family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

Fish Hook had everything we were looking for best lake front views so peaceful and we were able to visit so many beautiful places close by. The house was well equipped especially the kitchen had everything we need it, the barbecue was great to cook outdoor with a view. Had our coffee every morning by the fire pit and had dinner at the deck with a beautiful lake view. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us and hope to come back in the future.

Owner's Response: Your favorite coffee spot is mine as well -- the Adirondack chairs on the firepit patio! Why is it that coffee tastes even better when enjoyed outside as the rest of the world wakes up? I love that you guys made the most of your vacation visiting local favorites -- wineries, Helen, and the Georgia Aquarium -- and exploring the lake on a pontoon boat. It was our pleasure having you!
