South Lake Waterfront Kove With Pontoon Boat Rental *Prime Location*

Cumming, Georgia

This newly renovated Kove is an unbeatable location on the South end of Lake Lanier in Cumming, Georgia just off of Buford Dam Road. The property is minutes from a variety of restaurants, entertainment, downtown Cumming and Highway 400, all while still maintaining the perfect vacation, get-away feel. You do not need to get on any major highways to get to Downtown Cumming coming from this location.

Once you enter the Kove you immediately feel like you are on the lake. The family room & dining area are lined with windows along the backside of the house. Come out onto the huge new deck which is just 40 feet from the water and watch the wildlife and fish jump. Come off the deck and you walk onto grass all the way down to the water. Guests will enjoy a fully equipped kitchen, beautiful dining area with surrounding windows, family room with a large flatscreen TV. Sleeping arrangements allow for 6 to sleep comfortably. All 3 bedrooms have queen beds. There is also a Kottage & Kabin available for rent which are both across the street from each other and 5 minutes away from the Kove! Inquire for more details.

There is a deck which is perfect for summer nights! There are several adirondack chairs & large table to make it a perfect area for grilling out on the gas grill.

A 40 ft grassed walk down from the dock leads to the large covered dock which is where the 25 ft pontoon boat is available for rent. The dock is perfect for lounging out during the day and fishing at night especially since there is electricity for lights. You wouldn’t believe the fishing from the dock!

Should you bring your own, a boat ramp is a mile away at Little Ridge Park. Lake Lanier Islands and Sunset Cove are local hangouts on the lake and are just a short 15-20 minute boat ride away by pontoon.

?This is a great swimming, boating and fishing location. You will really enjoy this true getaway haven any time of the year whether it be Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter. We are about 30 minutes from the mountains and 30-45 minutes north of Atlanta. ??Please do not hesitate to call with any questions. This is a family owned Kove, Kabin and Kottage and have been doing rentals for 8 years now. We accept all major credit cards!

    Nice Place

    A very nice house. Lake cottage like which is what I was looking for. The house fit our family of four perfectly with each grown child having their own room/bed. We thought the master bed needed replacing as my wife and I who are of average weight sunk and drifted towards the middle and was very soft. I wish the kitchen sink had a garbage disposal which is always needed for a rental. They need to remove a boat rental as advertised if it's no longer an offering. The house was very clean, appointed well for a lake cottage and properly sized for 4 adults. The lake waters were beautiful and not too busy or load. We would stay again with a new mattress in the master.

    secluded convenience on the lake

    Secluded feel just steps from shopping, Marina's, gas and major transportation throughfares. Kotts Love is on a serene finger of the sprawling Lake Lanier. Private deck and dock are great for enjoying the tall trees and sunshine, or trying to bag a fish or two. Paved boat launch adjacent to the house as well. The cove gets "local" boating traffic only as the bigger boats and speed boats tend to steer for deeper parts. Sandy ACOE beaches near the dam are just a few miles, and three turns, away. Great natural light throughout. Full, functional kitchen makes it perfect for families looking to maximize time together away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Plenty of storage in the bedrooms both in closets and dressers. Full-sized washer dryer was a huge plus. Only nit picks would be the bathrooms...lacking in hooks/rods for towels, and odd light/fan combos. The laminate flooring creaks a bit, so light sleepers beware Plus the steep driveway is not for the faint of heart! Overall, we loved it and hope to return.

    Wonderful place with a few shortcomings

    A wonderful stay however it would have been better if we would have had a manual telling about how to operate things i.e. TV, Stove, microwave, lights etc. Appreciated the owners being easily reached and their quick response to all of our needs especially when we were locked out. Our only complaint was the neighbors loud music Saturday and Sunday nights. Their speakers {4} were on the property line between our's and their's and blasted till before midnight both nights. Also the rental of the owner's boat should be omitted from the rental add since we were told it isn't available as a rental due to insurance reasons. Renting the boat was a factor when we rented the property.

    A delightful place to stay!

    This place was perfect for our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children ages 3, 6 & 16). I knew the little ones wouldn’t want separate rooms as they would end up with an adult being away from their own beds (scared). The house was the perfect size. We had a relaxing time, spent most of it on the dock fishing, swimming, paddle boating and riding our jet skies. House was very clean, well decorated and had everything we needed. It was my 1st time booking a VRBO & I hope to never go back to hotel vacationing again! Thank you Kelly and Anne for sharing your home and helping our family to make some great memories!

    Awesome lake home

    My husband, grad school daughter and I spent 4 nights at the Kove. As soon as we walked into the Kottage we were amazed at the layout, the cleanliness, and everything we needed in the kitchen. The location was awesome easy to run back to the store to pick something up that I had forgotten to buy. The location on the lake was perfect as well. We did take advantage and rented the pontoon boat which we thoroughly enjoyed. The only trouble we had was with the ladder on the boat so getting back in was a small challenge. As for the steepness to get to the dock, it was definitely better than Lake Cumberland. The week that we stayed at the Kove I was in a hard boot due to a recent fracture in my foot. I didn't have any issues getting to and from the dock, if my 86 year old mom was there she would probably struggle without assistance. But for my husband and myself both in our 50's it was not a problem at all. I worked mainly with Anne, she always responded immediately or in a timely manner. Her and her husband even came out the first night to get us setup with the boat. If you are looking for a lake rental I definitely would recommend Kove Kottage.

    Lovely vacation home

    The property and house are beautiful! We really enjoyed out stay! We enjoyed being right on the lake, and spent most of our time out on the dock or on the lake. We loved the area! The owners were so friendly, and answered all our questions. We are already planning on another vacation there next summer.

    Pretty Good

    This property is really gorgeous and clean. Access to the lake is wonderful. However, both the driveway and the walk down to the dock are VERY steep! My mother in law had great difficulty with this and had we known, we might have made another choice so as not to limit her. The hosts/owners were not on sight and there was no information re: surrounding stores, etc. They were very slow to respond to our attempts to contact them for information. We were not informed that the boats are available to rent by their other properties and found out a few days before our arrival! So no boat for us. There is no internet. If the weather is bad, this would cause a problem (we actually brought our own DVD player and HDMI cable & computers-Netflix- for movies & had to use the DVD player b/c no internet! We found a Redbox rental nearby on our own...) The kitchen could use a few things: at least 1 more medium sized pot, a proper bottle opener (again, had our own), cheese grater. No sponge for doing the dishes. We rent in different locations several times a year, and while we enjoyed ourselves, this felt very amateurishly managed.

    Thank you Anne and Kelly for the perfect birthday getaway for my husband. The property is even better in person than in the photos! Nice kitchen with everything we needed for cooking. We so enjoyed our meals on the deck with the beautiful views of the lake. Comfortable beds with very nice linens! We Were so glad we decided to rent your pontoon boat, and used it for cruising as well as fishing. The only small problem we had was the last night when we tried to grill our steaks, and found there was no propane in the grill. Otherwise a perfectly wonderful experience! Hope to stay again in the future!
