Lake Burton cottage description

You’ll fall in love with our quaint and charming lakeside cottage located on Lake Burton’s beautiful Timpson Cove. This lovingly renovated home on the water's edge features a two story, two bedroom, two bath floor plan with spectacular views of the lake and surrounding mountains.

Enjoy the inviting great room’s native stone wood-burning fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, and dining area for six. The cozy main level bedroom features one double bed with a connecting full bath. Downstairs, a large second bedroom includes one queen bed, a set of twin bunk beds, and a full bath.

Bead board pine tongue and groove walls and hardwood floors lend a warm, rustic elegance to the cottage. Amenities include central A/C and heat, ceiling fans, satellite TV, wireless internet, DVD and CD players, dishwasher, microwave, washer, dryer and charcoal grill.

As the day dawns, awake to the beauty of the mist rising off the lake as Charlie Mountain watches over from above. Sip a morning cup of coffee on the covered lower deck, or settle into a comfy Adirondack glider on the open upper deck.

When you’re ready to play on the lake, there's much to do! Your private dock and boathouse enticingly await in front of the cottage. Bring your own boat or rent one from nearby marinas. Ski, swim and splash in refreshing mountain waters. Cast a fishing line and catch your supper. Soak up some rays. Celebrate a sunset.

And, if you can ever tear yourself away from the lake, more adventures abound! Hike along the Appalachian, slip down Sliding Rock, explore beautiful state parks, go white-water rafting, enjoy shopping and antiquing, play a round of golf, or sample the delicious flavors of area restaurants.

Then, as twilight falls upon the Blue Ridge, be dazzled by the night sky. Fall asleep to the sounds of the mountains.

Come enjoy the simple pleasures of our House by the Side of the Lake. You may never want to leave!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1970

                      About the owner: Sisters Charlotte and Martha Miller have been coming to Lake Burton since the late 1960's. As children, we fell in love with the lake on our first visit to the cabin of a dear family friend. It wasn't long before our parents found a lake home to call our own! Through the years, many happy memories have been created here with family and friends. And, with the family's very precious addition of Charlotte's daughter, Lily, a new generation of Millers is lovin' the lake! Spending time here is truly a cherished tradition and we invite you to come begin your own memories!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Waking up to the reflection of Charlie Mountain as morning mist rises off the lake, boating amidst the beauty of the Blue Ridge, sitting on the deck as dusk falls and the stars start to twinkle, and being in the most beautiful, peaceful place we know.
