Recently named a Top 10 lake house rental in the Southeast, the Hygge House was designed as the ultimate Hygge-inspired home on Lake Lanier.

The Hygge House - Video Walkthrough - Lake Lanier - Gainesville, GA

Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling, space, or moment as cozy, charming or special and this home embodies that spirit and is the perfect location for guests to relax, unwind, and reset.

The space
The Hygge House was established to create an intimate, relaxing, modern space with all the latest smart home and comfort features.

The completely renovated home offers a unique experience integrating classic lake cabin A-frame architecture with modern design and technology in a sublime and peaceful lake setting.

Nestled on the quiet and calm north end of Lake Lanier, less than 1 hour north of Atlanta, the Hygge House resides in a very private cove with sweeping lake views and offers a short walk to the dock and water.

The home is 2,300 sq ft and has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths.

The primary room features a king bed with a Nectar mattress and top-of-the-line linens, amazing lake views with a floor-to-ceiling glass wall, an Eames lounge chair, and a one-of-one, custom-made "Sherman Oak" headboard.

The headboard was hand-crafted from one of the few remaining oak trees that survived when General Sherman burned down Atlanta during the Civil War. It was sadly hit by lightning in 2019, but was able to be given new life as an amazing art piece and historical remnant.

The primary room's expansive bath features heated floors, dual vanities, an automatic urinal, a “smart toilet” with built in bidet, and a spacious shower area with multiple shower heads for a soothing and spa-like shower experience.

On the main level, a fully equipped and stocked kitchen awaits you, with all stainless steel appliances, including a convection oven, microwave, 4 burner gas cooktop, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, coffee station, and Chick-Fil-A ice machine.

The kitchen includes top-of-the-line Quartz countertops and a Kohler Prolific workstation chef's sink with plenty of entertaining and prep space.

The living space surrounding the kitchen includes dining for up to 6, a modern fireplace and ample seating with long-range views of the lake, the surrounding woods, and unbelievably gorgeous sunsets throughout the year.

The home also comes with a dedicated office area with dual computer screens for any work you might need to do while here.

The cozy all-season screened-in porch offers an outdoor living space and has two sofas, two chairs, a Zen wall, a large industrial remote-controlled fan, and a built-in 6000 watt infrared Bromic heater.

Downstairs on the terrace level you'll find two spacious rooms, each with spectacular lake views.

The "2nd Master" offers a floating king bed with a DreamCloud mattress, build-in closet, blackout curtains, and individually controlled bedside wall sconces for each guest's comfort and convenience.

The bunk room isn't just for the kids as it comes equipped with a custom-made bunk bed with a high-end Nectar queen mattress on the bottom and Twin XL up top.

Additionally, the room features a 65'' Samsung SmartTV w/ soundbar, a custom-made Arcade system with over 3,000 classic video games, and has plenty of room for games, yoga, or lounging around on the oversized Lovesac.

The back deck has a dining table for 6 and a custom-made, built-in grill table with a Blackstone griddle and a Kamodo Joe grill, with charcoal, gas, and all grilling tools provided.

The home features a brand new boathouse - the largest allowed on Lake Lanier - and comes with paddleboards, kayaks, floats, a swim platform and ladder, and other essential lake toys.

Bring your rod-and-reels as the cove is also fantastic for fishing - even right from the dock!

The dock is a great place to tie up a boat during your stay - the boat launch is only 5 minutes away and there is trailer parking at the top of the driveway.

Don't have a boat, but want to rent one? No problem! We have a boat rental service less than 5 minutes from the Hygge House with fantastic rates and you can even keep the boat at the dock during your stay!

We also offer chartered boat captain services as well for those that want to not have to worry about driving.

Throughout the property are amenities galore, including:

- Fully custom grill area on the back porch that includes a Blackstone griddle and a large Kamodo Joe

- "Chick-fil-A" ice machine

- ZENKO Fusion Japanese-steel kitchen knives

- A "whole-house" carbon water filter which delivers safe, clean, and fresh water for the entire home

- 6,000 watt Bromic heater on the screened-in porch

- 3 Samsung Smart TVs, including an incredible 75" Samsung Q9 in the living room. Each TV connects to a high-end Samsung soundbar and comes with the most popular apps such as Netflix, Prime Video, ESPN, Hulu, Youtube, etc

- Smart-home features including Lutron Caseta automated lighting, Ecobee smart thermostat, smart door locks, Amazon Alexa, and blazing-fastWiFi network

Originally from the southeast, I’ve spent the last 12 years traveling to 60+ countries around the world and have lived in 6 different (and amazing) cities across North America - it’s been awesome and I’ve had the privilege of meeting so many unique and amazing people.

When I migrated back to my home state of Georgia, it was my dream to be able to design and develop unique and elevated Airbnb experiences and share them with guests from all over the world - really showing them what “southern hospitality” was all about and bringing smiles to their faces.

When I’m not taking care of my amazing guests, I love doing things like boating, wakeboarding, hiking, kayaking, SUP’ing, working out, cooking, taking in amazing vistas, entertaining family and friends, reading, and traveling :)

The best part about being a host for me is meeting new people and helping ensure they have the best trip possible and get a taste of the “hygge lifestyle”!
