Lullwater House is the president's mansion at Emory University near Atlanta, Georgia, overlooking Candler Lake. It was built in 1926 as the residence of Walter T. Candler, son of Coca Cola founder Asa Griggs Candler. The mansion is in the form of an L, in Tudor-Gothic revival style. The architects were Ivey and Crook.

Candler named the estate Lullwater Farms. Horses were kept for racing. Cattle grazed on the fields.

In 1958, Candler sold the house and land to Emory. In 1963, Sanford Atwood became the first president of Emory to take up residence in the mansion. Since then, Emory presidents have continued to lived there when they hold that position.

The estate should not be confused with Lullwater Estate, originally called Rainbow Terrace, the mansion built for Lucy Candler Heinz, Walter Candler and Asa G. Candler, Jr.'s sister.
