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.

This flat on the first level of a historic house exudes pleasing vibes with its overall blue theme from the moment you enter. Much of the space was just newly renovated, and the features got an upgrade with a modern shower, coffee bar, smart TV with entertainment apps, and ultra-fast WiFi. Located on historic Green Street, the accommodation offers an ideal but safe setting for its guests.

This two-bedroom home shows that something old can transform itself into something modern. Once a 1950s house, this spacious property got an upgrade with a bright and contemporary kitchen and bathroom design along with electrical and plumbing improvements. It can sleep up to six guests comfortably and privately, as the house sits in a quiet neighborhood near Gainesville’s downtown area and in close proximity to the host should you need assistance.

An ideal getaway for couples, this lakeside home instantly gives off “cabin in the woods” vibes because of its location right in the middle of nature and wilderness. The house sits on a cove on the outskirts of Gainseville, and you can expect full privacy during your stay. Aside from being a fully equipped accommodation, you may also enjoy a short trip down to the lake where you can go kayaking, canoeing, or fishing. Swimming is okay, but guests should note that there is no lifeguard, so do so at your own risk.

You will have this entire spacious three-bedroom home to yourself and five of your friends or family members. While the interiors are mostly contemporary and brightly colored, the private surroundings offer amazing forest and mountain views with occasional deer roaming in the winter: a magical image of calmness. You may, however, enjoy a bit of vintage touch indoors, with an original record player and stovetop.

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.

This lovely lakeside cottage proves that it can be a home with a contemporary feel. The bright and freshly renovated interiors are instantly eye-catching and will give you a cozy atmosphere during your stay. While all three of its bedrooms provide scenic views of Lake Lanier, you can also enjoy the scenery with a cup of coffee on the private dock, which is directly accessible from the master bedroom.
