Best Lake Community of the Year - Cresswind on Lake Lanier

Real Estate Scorecard, an industry leader of online real estate reviews, announces the 2013 Bliss Award Winner for Best Lake Community of the Year.

Up to this point, Real Estate Scorecard had not reviewed 55+ master planned communities. During their site visit, they discovered this best master planned community in northern Georgia is age restrictive. Kolter Homes is the real estate developer of Cresswind and clearly built this affordable Georgia lakefront community with active Baby Boomers in mind. Cresswind on Lake Lanier has one of the finest three story clubhouses Real Estate Scorecard has seen. Amenities include tennis, the Cresswind Marina, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a state of the art fitness center. In addition to the curb appeal, Real Estate Scorecard likes the low home prices and low cost maintenance free lifestyle. New homes start under $200k and no two homes back up to each other. The HOA fees are less than $250 a month and include lawn maintenance, trash removal and basic cable.

Cresswind on Lake Lanier is located on one of Georgia’s most visited and largest lakes. 38,000 acre emerald green Lake Lanier has 692 miles of shoreline and dozens of remote islands to explore in the center of the lake. Cresswind’s Marina provides covered boat slips which can be purchased by property owners. Adjacent to the floating boat docks is the community’s bathhouse, where residents have access to showers and bathrooms. There are 10 full service marinas on Lake Lanier and the closest is Gainesville Marina. Gainesville is a city with excellent medical care, the Brenau University Lifelong Learning Campus and North Georgia Premium Outlets for designer label shopping. The downtown Gainesville square is adorable and has tasty restaurants, old fashioned stores and bistros. Baby Boomers who desire lakefront living should not miss seeing Cresswind on Lake Lanier.
