About the property

3 Bedroom + 1 Large Bunk Room 3.5 Bath On The Lake W/ Party Dock And Lake Toys

Lakefront jewel located in wonderful Lake Lanier neighborhood. The perfect place to come and relax, enjoy nature, and the lake. Over 3500 square foot, two level house with unfinished basement, on a deep water secluded cove in a beautiful and private setting. Only an hour drive from Atlanta, on Georgia 400. Right of off the main highway.

Fantastic double party dock on great cove, nice views. Warm, welcoming home w/ spacious open floor plan. Cozy large living room 10' cathedral ceilings and glass wall providing lake and nature views from the comfort of the indoors. Spacious breakfast and dining rooms with plenty of space for all guest.

A top of the line fire pit has just been installed! Can hold 20 people around the pit comfortably.

After an unforgettable day on the water, come home and refuel with a meal prepared in the fully equipped kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances and all the essential culinary accessories. If you’d prefer the smoky barbecue flavor, fire up the gas grill and enjoy dinner al fresco on the expansive deck.

Gorgeous master on main w/king size Serta gel top bed, stone fireplace, lake views, and jet tub and shower. Two other bedrooms on main queen size pillow top beds with jack and jill bath room w/a jetted tub/shower combo. There is also a 1/2 bath on main. Upstairs has a full bath and 3 bunk beds that sleep 7 comfortably and a hideaway couch. The house can comfortably sleep 15 in beds, but has plenty of space for blow ups and comfortable couches as well.

Two HDTVs with satellite dish network and DVR. Gaming/Movie TV in Bunk room.

Large living room with stone fireplace. Spacious breakfast and dining rooms.

Short walk to private, party dock just bring your boat(or rent it nearby) and tie it. Swim in the cove's calm water, or relax on the party deck and enjoy the beautiful views. Fish for bass, crappie and catfish from the dock, fishing poles provided. There is convenient access to public boat ramp, and marina to refuel your boat.

Only five miles from the North Georgia Premium outlet mall, 15 minutes from the charming historic town of Dahlonega and the beautiful North Georgia mountains. Movie theater and restaurants and wineries only minutes away. Golf, white water rafting, horseback riding, Amicalola Falls, are nearby. Close to the best hiking and mountain biking in Georgia. Spend a weekend or a month, you'll never want to leave!

Rental Note: June, July & August we rent on a Sat to Sat basis. We will entertain exceptions as they come up.

Special Note: I manage my condo and do all of the rentals myself. I do have my own cleaning crew that watches after Pura Vida and cleans after each guest. My linens are cleaned only for my unit and I change them up a lot. What this means is that my linens have not been put in with a huge group of rentals and moved from unit to unit...... This makes me feel better and if you are picky like me it will you too!!

About Steve

My wife and I purchased this home to be our retirement home in the next 10 years. We love the lake and when this house became available we knew we had to buy it.

Steve purchased this house in 2015

Why Steve chose Dawsonville

It is so calm and peaceful plus the cove has neighbors but it is super private. Basically, if you don't live there and you end up there, you are lost! Just out in front of cove is a large enough stretch of water for skiing and tubing. Being close to the Georgia mountains as well as shopping was a major plus.

What makes this house unique

2 tier party dock with cabana makes for a great day at the lake. Plenty of shade when needed. Boat slip for tying off is great. And non-motor toys are yours to use.

Great over-sized fire pit is always a huge hit.

Huge kitchen makes it easy to accomandate large gatherings when you want to cook. It is an open floor plan so everyone stays connected in the family room.

Upstairs bunk room gives kids private gaming in the t.v and a little peace and quiet to themselves. They also get their own bath with full shower.

Perfect place for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was great to work with. This home is beautiful and a perfect location for the vineyards. My family has already suggested we need to come back for another GA event. My younger grandkids had lots of fun running up and down the steps to the dock. This is a beautiful location. Easy access to GA400 and plenty of places to eat out or shop.

Thanks for great memories.

Large house in immaculate condition. Loved the dock and fire pit. Owners were very easy to work with and anticipated everything guests might need. Thanks for sharing your lovely home!

Amazing host, location, and house

  • 5 of 5

Steve was absolutely incredible before and during our stay, he was very accommodating to our needs and was responsive to our questions. The pictures of the house on VRBO do not do this house justice, it is amazing and much more than we had initially thought we had booked for. Definitely recommend hanging out back by the lake where the host has a boat dock with some area to relax and have a drink. Would definitely come back again next year!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Steve was an absolute life saver when we needed a last minute Hurricane Irma escape. His response to my inquiry was immediate and he was very accommodating.

The home is spacious, well appointed, and in the perfect location. It's a few minutes from outlet shopping and a Walmart but nestled in a little cul de sac that made you feel you were far from town.

It's also a short drive to Helen and there are plenty of good restaurants to choose from if dining out is your speed.

The lake was quiet and the second story dock was a cool place to hang out and enjoy some family time. The steps are a bit steep and narrow but we were all able to manage!

Would totally book again.

Wonderful luxury home for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Steve, the owner has done and outstanding job with this home. All the beds are very comfortable, updated kitchen, nice furniture and very well designed home. We used "boatbound" which is a national boat sharing company and parked at his very well designed dock. Top floor is a wonderful place to read a book and enjoy the lake. Our grandkids cooked "smores" one night at his firepit. Definately a 5 star home. Bill Handley
