Gail and Claire have been busy at Lake Lanier! Recently they sold a new building lot, and a beautiful newly built home.

At nearly 20 miles long, Lake Lanier spans 37,000 acres and features nearly 700 miles of shoreline, offering a wide variety of options for lake living. Buyers can choose from new construction, cozy cottages or sprawling luxury estates… meaning Lake Lanier truly offers something for virtually every type of homeowner.

Prices can range from under $300,000 to well over $4,000,000. Price points are also determined by location, water type and water depth.

On the Map

Located in the scenic foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Lake Lanier also happens to be conveniently positioned about one hour from Atlanta making it an exceptional location for a second home for weekend getaways, a gorgeous location to work from home, or a perfect spot to purchase a retirement home all while remaining close to Atlanta, and all that it has to offer.

Interestingly, Lake Lanier stretches across several small towns, but the two largest are Buford and Gainesville.


Several cities and counties serve the educational needs of the residents. Because of its size, Lake Lanier is part of five different counties, which is important to be aware of if you are considering public schools in the area. The cities that border Lake Lanier are Gainesville, Cumming, Flowery Branch,  Dawsonville, Murrayville, Oakwood and Buford.
