“Incredible House; Restful Retreat!”
Reviewed 9 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

The Ark is such an amazing place! I was here for a work retreat and it was the perfect spot for that. The beds were comfortable, the house is beautifully decorated, and the kitchen is definitely my dream kitchen! Our staff has some great meetings in the main living room. It is a great atmosphere for creating unity and rest! Oh and did I mention there's a movie theater in this place? So fun! Every time I come to the Ark it's like a breath of fresh air and I get rejuvenated. Cannot recommend this place enough! Thank you Jeff & family! You guys are amazing!

“Perfect place for a team retreat!!”
Reviewed 1 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The Ark was the perfect place for our work team to gather for a planning retreat. Not only did we have several beautiful options to have family style meals together, we also could break into smaller groups for planning and meetings and then sit together as a large team as well. Everyone felt like they had their own private space and luxurious bedroom/bathrooms. We have stayed at hotels in the past but won't go back after experiencing the Ark! It was wonderful! The list of catering options was very helpful as well. We had several meals delivered so that we never had to leave. The perfect spot.

“Welcome Home! Rare gem on lake lanier where you will be treated like family.”
Reviewed 10 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The moment you walk in the front door, you feel at home. The house and grounds are inviting and setup to draw you into relaxation and fun. If a house could hug, this one would. I loved the nooks and crannies in the house. Perfect for a late afternoon nap or just a spot in the shade to sink into a book. The sports closet will keep you entertained for hours. Whether its a quiet kayak tour on the lake or a heated volleyball match, there's something for everyone. Our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

“One of the most beautiful and memorable places I have EVER stayed!!!”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We just spent a week at this amazing place for a family reunion and I just wanted to say what an amazing venue. The Ark is set up as a little piece of paradise, it is elegant and luxurious, yet so comfortable and unpretentious. We stayed in the original homestead part of the house and felt truly blessed to wake up each morning to the gorgeous view out over the pool to the lake. Every room and every area has it's own character and style and I reckon it's absolutely the best place for a family (or friends) get-together. Fingers crossed that we can do it again someday... Thank you 'Ark'

“Beautiful lake house for family gatherings”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

The owner was very easy to work with and accommodated all our needs. It was nice to have the privacy of individual rooms or cottages and still be together for all meals and activities. The lake house was beautifully decorated inside and out. We loved the swimming pool with hot tub and the short walk to the lake. Even G'mama could take in all the events.The location is a nice quiet spot on the lake making for a beautiful setting. The best thing to us was the evening gatherings after a full day of activities like swimming, volleyball, boating. Everyone enjoyed the time together in a beautiful setting.

“Fantastic place.”
Reviewed 1 May 2016 for a stay in July 2015

This is a great place, and can easily accommodate a very large group. There is so much to do, it's almost like being away at camp but with nicer facilities. There is the lake and pool, tree swings, tetherball, pool/ping pong table, trampoline, disc golf, etc.
