Why Bonnie Seabrooke chose Lake Lanier

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.

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!

Dock of the Bay Gainesville, Ga was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at Lake Lanier. The house was only 10 minutes from my nephew's lake house where we all gathered for water fun, boating and food. Eight of us stayed at the Dock of the Bay and it was ideal for us. The home is beautiful and very nicely furnished and decorated. And the 6 year old was thrilled with the toys on the terrace level. Great walk to the lake however we had no beach chairs of lake floats so we did not spend any time at the lake. There was a plumbing issue and the owner had a plumber over within a matter of a few hours to fix the leak. Glad we were there! Owner was very responsive to all of our questions and always helpful. We all decided we would rent the Dock of the Bay again sometime!

Owner's Response: Thank you Nancy! You were a joy to work with and I appreciate your patience while we worked thru the leak and got a plumber to come out. We would love to have your family back again any time!!! We will look into adding some beach chairs and where we might store those for future visitors - thanks for the tip!!

Fantastic lake getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of nine adults that all enjoyed this fabulous lake home. There is plenty of space for everyone. It felt like home away from home because the home is tastefully decorated, and everything you need is there. The dock area is a great place to hang out, boat rentals are close by, and shopping is nearby as well. The owners were a pleasure to work with. We look forward to staying again.
