About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8-10

Come sit by the "Dock of the Bay" in this beautifully decorated lake house with double decker dock! Enjoy three levels of lake living with this wonderful layout - a private bedroom and bath on each floor!

AND you can get cozy by the fireplace after a day outdoors, sit at the dock and watch the sunset on the lake and finish it off with smores over the fire pit back at the house!!

The main level floor features an open two story main living, dining and kitchen area. Well stocked, open kitchen, full sized kitchen with every pot, pan, dish and utensil you could need to cook a beautiful family meal!

Beautiful stone fireplace in main living area and decorated in a unique coastal style. Plenty of room to hang out upstairs and cook, watch tv, do a puzzle and make memories!!

The master on main is comfortable and inviting with a large king size bed and attached master bath. The laundry is conveniently located on the main floor.

The upstairs loft features a private bedroom and bath decorated in a wonderful tropical theme with a queen bed.

The terrace level is an open floor plan with a relaxing entertainment area. The room is spaciously laid out to include a custom built in bar with beverage cooler, a table for a puzzle or game of cards and comfortable sectional and recliner for plenty of down time in front of the large flat screen TV. The terrace level also has a fun nautical themed bedroom with two full sized beds, another fun coastal themed bedroom with a queen, a full bathroom downstairs.

There is a nice back deck off the main level with comfortable seating and dining areas and large stainless steel grill with seasonal views of Lake Lanier. Note seasonal means when there are leaves on the trees you see less of the lake.

A short but natural path walk down the path takes you to the double-decker dock where you can lounge on the top looking at the beautiful inlet. The dock also features ability to dock your your own boat or rent a boat from nearby Paradise rentals for enjoyment on your vacation. Swimming and fishing off the dock is a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon.

Why Bonnie Seabrooke chose Gainesville

We looked at so many properties at Lake Lanier but this one was perfect in our opinion for so many reasons. It is mid-lake so easy to get anywhere on the lake by boat. The area is really beautiful and you feel like you are out in the country but you are still within a quick drive of restaurants, groceries, activities such as Premium Outlets, Corn Mazes, Apple Picking, Pumpkin Patches, Hiking, Dahlonega, Helen, etc. The neighborhood is quiet and family friendly so a great place for kids to run around. And finally the house layout is perfect for vacations because there is plenty of room to gather and hang out as a group or family but plenty of room for privacy.

Nice cozy place

  • 5 of 5

Evacuated from Florida during Hurricane Irma and the owner was really accommodating and was always checking to make sure everything was OK! Really appreciate that. We all enjoyed our stay by the fire pit and the lake views. Thanks!

We loved our stay here

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful lake house. My husband and I got married in Gainesville over Labor Day Weekend and we rented this house as a place for my out of town family to stay in. Everyone had a great time and it was very beautiful inside and extremely comfortable. We loved it! The owner was very easy to work with. It is in a very nice quiet neighborhood and we all were extremely appreciative that we found a nice place to gather together.

Very nice home

  • 3 of 5

Very nice home, rough walk to the lake, no view of the lake from the house.

AC had to run cold to keep up when it got hot in the afternoon, so it was cold in the morning. TV very small in the living room, no TV's in the bedrooms. Very well supplied, we had fun!

Great stay at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days here. It was very relaxing. The house is set up great and has everything that you need. My kids were pleasantly surprised to find toys, games and crayons and coloring books. My nephew wanted to fish the whole time we were there so that is what he did. He caught some pretty good sized fish. We rented a boat the first day and spent the day checking out the lake. The next day we spent our time in the lake swimming right off the dock. The four bedrooms fit our family perfectly. It was a nice getaway and we very much enjoyed this house. Thank you.

Great House, Great Dock, Great Fun!

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean and perfect fit for 8 people (2 adults and 5 kids) that stayed. Walk to dock is a hike but is a nice warm up for lake activities. We spent the week at the house and went out wakeboarding/wakesurfing everyday. The cove that the dock is located in was perfect as there were very very few boats that came through throughout the week. Rooms on three levels also allowed us to separate the the younger and older kids who went to bed at different times!
