Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Gainesville, Georgia - Updated 2022


The US state of Georgia, also known as The Peach State, is a fond combination of urban and natural settings. Most of the time, however, tourists come to visit Georgia mostly for its natural scenery. A lovely place to start would be Gainesville, which is a city that sits near the Appalachian Mountains and by Lake Lanier. Located in northern Georgia, Gainesville is known as the Queen City of the Mountains and it became known for hosting the 1996 Olympic rowing/kayaking events, thus earning them another nickname, Hospitality Capital of the World. That said, there are several outdoor activities to do in Gainesville, and there are plenty of top local restaurants and shops to check out as well. If you’re planning a trip to Gainesville soon, better start preparing that itinerary! For accommodation recommendations, check out the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Gainseville, Georgia.

9. Luxurious lakeside suite with tons of amenities

The last thing you would probably expect from lakeside accommodations is luxury. This particular one is an exception to that rule as the property promises you a five-star stay thanks to its beautifully landscaped surroundings and outdoor settings as well as its fine and well-decorated interiors. However, the star of this lakeside retreat is probably the amenities, which include a private gym, an outdoor hot tub, a hammock in the outdoor seating area, a billiards table, a couple of musical instruments, and more.
