Chateau at Lake Lanier
This enchanting European-inspired lake chateau designed with three luxurious levels and over 9,000-square feet of stunning living space beckons you to stay awhile on Lake Lanier. With its beautiful lake vistas and views from almost every room, relaxing in this upscale gated estate on the water is the ultimate Southeast private escape for family and friends gatherings. Located only seven minutes from downtown historic Gainesville and 45-miles from Atlanta, with everything in between ranging from an authentic German town and a Gold mining town, the region offers unique day-trip activities for the entire crowd.
Providing ample space for large gatherings yet offering intimate privacy, guests will be pampered within the property's poshly decorated interior, offering high-quality, carefully selected furnishings, beds, and linens throughout. As you enter the chateau's stunning main-level two-story foyer, the space opens to the well-appointed formal living room with a gas fireplace. Past this room is the spacious nautical-themed great room (or family room) that invites you to sit upon its bountiful seating, enjoy the flat-screen HDTV for movie nights or sporting events, and take in the view with the floor-to-ceiling walls of windows. Adjacent to the living room is the fully-loaded gourmet professional kitchen outfitted with stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops, with eating space for 20 at your choice of a formal dining room, casual dining room, kitchen bar, and family room table. Through the french doors, the pool and patio area await.
The chateau's custom hand forged wrought iron curved staircase leads guests to the garden level and the full-sized non-deep free-form pool, which is safe for all swimmers. There is a second fully outfitted stainless-steel outdoor kitchen in the pool area, making it perfect for multi-generational families or larger party staging being right off the pool patio. If you prefer a break from the fun in the sun, try your luck at billiards, ping pong, foosball, cards at the two gaming tables, or the many board games provided in the gaming areas. The game room also features two sets of queen bunk beds and two sets of twin bunk beds.
The vast upper patio balcony and lower level porch have additional outside seating and tables for 16, and the garden level has inside eating space for 10. Steps take guests down to the gradually sloping 200-foot trail to the double slip-covered boat dock past the pool and landscaping. Enjoy the views of the mountains, sunrises and sunsets on the lake, fish & relax.
The third story boasts a more spectacular living space with lake views along with additional bedrooms, including a full-sized front loading washer and dryer with a 360-surround of custom high-end cabinetry.

Please note that due to the unique accommodation of this home, size and the amount of guests it is able to host, there is a mandatory $1000 service fee, plus a 7% tax on the service fee, per booking.
The owners of the Chateau will do their best to help guests arrange watercraft such as pontoon boats, jet-ski rentals, kayaks, paddle boards and other lake water toys - due to insurance and liability reasons, these are NOT included or provided with your stay. In addition, there are NO life vests or pool floats, so these are also the responsibility of the guest to provide for their group needs.
