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!"

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Third time staying at FishHook......and wont be our last! As always Debbie was the ultimate hostess. We were to stay here back in Sept......but IRMA came in our place. (:

FishHook is so close to anything you want or would like to do.......but secluded if you all you want is to relax and rest!!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Words can not describe the hospitality that we received. Fresh cut flowers on the counter, a welcome note and a small gift for our son. We rent cabins, lake houses and condos regularly. This was by far the cleanest and most welcoming place we have stayed at. The dock was great for fishing. The fire pit was unique, and the seating was great everywhere! The beds were ALL comfortable. Many times, one bed will be good and the others not, but all beds were comfy! The kitchen not only had everything that you need, and it was all CLEAN! This was so cozy and relaxing. I think we will be back in the spring or summer to take advantage of the screened in porch. I could go on and on about how wonderful this place is.

We needed a get a way but could not go to far from our business. This was perfect.

Amazing old school lake house

  • 4 of 5

The setting and house are amazing.

My only suggestion is if the house stocked basics; salt, pepper, sugar...

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review and for expressing the sentiment of so many of our Guests. FishHook is amazing, and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We appreciate your suggestion regarding pantry items and do provide salt and pepper in shakers kept in the cupboard (which I hope you found), but no other. It's our policy to dispose of any and all pantry items Guests may leave behind for the simple reason that we can't guarantee their source, their freshness, nor their proper handling. For example, did the Guest bring the chili powder from their pantry at home, did they spill the sugar on the counter and scrape it back into the container? We choose, instead, to provide a well-stocked vacation rental with a generous supply of non-perishable essentials, such as paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, laundry supplies, dish detergent, coffee filters and liquid hand soap. Those items can fill up a grocery cart quick!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and his fishing team had a 2 day tournament on Lake Lanier this past week and thoroughly enjoyed staying in this home. Location was great and the home was well stocked and cozy. The best part of this rental was the hospitality of the owner Debbie. She was the best and so helpful with local information and went above and beyond to assure the guys had everything they needed. I can't say enough about how seemless this rental was!!!

Had a great stay at FishHook. Perfect place to relax after a long day on the lake. Debbie was super nice and very helpful. Would certainly stay here again on next trip to Lake Lanier.
