The community's private Lake Sterling is a tranquil place to canoe, fish and enjoy a walk around the lake. The community's 8,000 square foot lodge-style clubhouse overlooks the lake and two resort-style swimming pools. In front of the clubhouse, the community's 4.5 acre great lawn is where social events take place including the annual Harvest Balloon Festival. Property owners who want boating access on Lake Lanier can access Hideaway Bay Marina less than 5 miles from the neighborhood.

There are many organized activities throughout the year both for adults and kids. I don't always have time to organize activities so this makes it easy for us all to have something to do outside of our home. There is also an neighborhood atmosphere of friendliness (without busybodiness) that I enjoy.

The people are fantastic, helpful and active.. we have an active empty nesters group but still have children around to keep us young. The management is always there to help and the Springs section has a builder that knows how to work with the handicap, wheelchair adult. It is a great place to retire and downsize.

Love Sterling on the Lake because of the vast amount of organized activities for the residents, the resort style amenities, walking trails and waterfall, tennis academy for kids, tennis coaches and all the tennis social events and teams. Sterling on the Lake is within 2 miles of Lake Lanier, major hospitals and shopping. Eventhough Sterling has over 700 homeowners currently, and we continue to grow, everyone is like family here. We support one another when sick, tragedy strikes family and we celebrate together. The community offers 2 pools, tube slide, lake, fishing, boating, walking, concerts, cooking classes, parties, dinners together, and the list goes on. Anyone would be so proud to be a part of such a great community, such as, Sterling on the Lake.

We chose SOTL over many other communities. It is a great family community with many activities, clubs and social gatherings. We also have many activities that invite outside participants (Hot air balloon festival, 4th of July fireworks, concerts, etc.) We are in the "Empty Nester" category and it is a great community for families of all age groups.

We have very recently moved here from out of state, and have found our new neighborhood to be warm, welcoming, friendly and beautiful. Sterling is so well located to shopping, Lake Lanier, state & county parks, and to the Metro Atlanta area. We are so happy to be here!
