Lake Lanier Homes
Whether you are searching for a vacation home to getaway from the hustle of the city or a peaceful neighborhood to commute in to the city, Lake Lanier is your answer. Created in 1956 by the completion of Buford Dam, Lake Lanier is a reservoir that encompasses 38,000 acres of water and 692 miles of shoreline. Homes for sale range from the log-cabin style to grand mansions with fully stocked docks with boats, wave runners, and paddle boats.
Lake Lanier has seen a growing number of neighborhoods developing with Atlanta-commuters versus just weekend visitors. Higher priced home can be found on the South end of the Lake as it is close to the GA 400 Interstate that is a direct route in to the city.
Lake Lanier hosted the 1996 canoe sprint and rowing competitions for the Summer Olympics. In addition to the water activities, numerous parks and camp ground surround the lake and the North Georgia Premium Outlets with stores like Ann Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue, Pottery Barn, Ralph Lauren, and Chico’s provide entertainment for shoppers of all ages.
