    Sorry I missed you guys! I've been re-organized into a new role, and I can't seem to keep up. My mother-in-law recently passed away as well, so it hasn't been a great summer for us...

    We went down your cove to pick up some friends and I looked over and saw your boat. I remembered the pictures you had posted of your awesome house and thought "I know that guy". The JB.NET flag on the boat confirmed it. Sorry to hear about your mother in law. We'll be at Lanier again on the way back from Bimini 2016, maybe we'll see you then.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for waterfront rentals on Lanier? We're looking at meeting friends there for Memorial Day weekend. Thanks!

    Hi all, I am planning a vacation on Lake Lanier this summer. Lake Lanier is a good middle point from where we live in Tampa and family in Ky. I have a 2014 242 Limited in Tampa that I rarely (but have a few times for 3-4 hours each way) tow behind my truck as it is in a high and dry on the Gulf most of the time. I am wondering how easy it is to find a rental house with a dock for a week that could serve as our rental? Also, is there a better area of Lake Lanier that is closer to restaurants, shops etc. that I should target my search in? I am in need of these details to decide if I should tow the boat for 9 hours or not for this 6-7 day long vacation. I am just starting my research but thought the nice folks here could help me find the answers a little bit quicker. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Check with VRBO. I'm sure there will be a lot of options to meet your needs.

    @Lester We are headed to Lanier for the first time with the boat for Memorial Day. We reserved a lake house through VRBO near Baldridge Marina. It was about $200 per night for a house that sleeps 5. (I think it's $50 per night cheaper when it's not a holiday weekend.) I included a link to the property we reserved below. Lanier looks like a great lake for a family trip. Lots of things accessible from the boat, and extra entertainment for those who aren't into boating for 12 hours per day.

    Here is some advice that I was given when researching our trip: The south end of the lake is the busier end. There are a lot of restaurants and activities around Lanier Islands. The north end of the lake is more remote and quieter with beautiful scenery. If you wanted to go all out, you could stay at the Legacy Lodge at Lanier Islands and be super close to all the action. There are different events throughout the summer like fireworks, boat-in movies, water toys for the kids, golf, etc... The main body can get rough during the afternoons, so you want to be careful. The water level is currently 9' below full pool.

    Edit: Forgot the link. https://www.vrbo.com/296333?utm_cam...0225&utm_source=SYS&utm_medium=email#location

    @Bill D provided some great info. I will add our favorite restaurants that we frequent. Our favorites are Fish Tales, Pig Tales, Sunset Cove Cafe, Pelican Pete's, and Big Creek Tavern. All are accessible by boat. With the lake being down, there's also a lot of exposed beaches that can be found on Three Sisters Islands. We like to hang out there because you have views of the "big water" and watch the wide array of boats that come by while enjoying the day at a beach. Don't hesitate to PM if you have any specific questions on other activities on Lake Lanier.
