As long as you stay outside, you'll continue to be impressed.
Just don't go inside; The smell alone will knock you over & make you gag. No exaggerating & being as gentle as we can, even after 2 candles, 5 cans of air freshener & 'sucking it up' ... we were still pained. Not sure if the smell was attributed to the numerous large urine stains in the carpet (maybe a pet?!) or the fact that this property was definitely NOT cleaned before our arrival. The positives: The OUTDOOR views & surroundings are BEAUTIFUL !!!!!!! The water is serene & enjoyable for all ages with decks & activities (swim, fish & boat). Overall: If the nauseating smell & dirty home (lots of pet hair, dirty dust, toilets/sinks, alive & dead bugs everywhere & missing light bulbs) & downstairs toilet is VERY slow to flush even water ... can ever be remedied, it would be an incredible property with a polite owner & easy pre-check in process.
The Boathouse is located in a secluded cove on Lake Lanier .
