This house sits right on the lake and has shallow water for kids to swim in.
There are two good size bedrooms, a master upstairs that opens to a balcony and one on the main. The master has a queen bed, and the main has two twins that can be brought together or kept separate and a studio bed.
There are two smaller bedrooms with bunk beds that work especially well for kids, and the loft has a set of bunk beds and two long couches. If you count the den couch, you're good for 14 people, but we strongly urge people to keep it to a maximum of 10. 14 parents/kids/dogs will be a little chaotic like they would in any house. If you're of the parents/kids/dogs variety, I recommend keeping it to around 8 or so or you'll be glad Mrs. Brooks' General Store has a beer/wine license.)
There is a 9' x 16' boat slip in the boathouse, and we're just 200 yards down the lake from the boat ramp.
We have a decent assortment of pair and slalom skis and tube to pull behind your boat, and a pretty good array and sizes of personal floatation devices.
There're some cane poles for fishing, and those work well for kids (Mrs. Brooks sells all the worms and crickets you'd ever want for bait).
There is Wi-Fi, a 32 inch HD TV, and Blu-Ray DVD connected to Wi-Fi for Netflix, but currently no satellite TV. (I'm thankful for a break from the TV.) It accepts X Box, PlayStation, Wii, etc.
After having a few guests with pets and damage occurring, we have decided not to allow pets anymore. If it is obvious to our cleaning/maintenance crew that a pet had been in the house, you will lose your security deposit....moreless

About the owner: My family has owned this lakehouse since I was in first grade, and I have too many memories here to list. The fish caught, learning to ski, teaching people to ski, cooking out, the banter of other house across the lake in the evening, waiting in line with UGA Head Football Coach Vince Dooley for our names to be called at LaPrade's (they didn't care who you were; you waited until your turn to go in), shooting off fireworks....
My own son now cherishes every trip we make there.
Why the Owner Chose Seed Lake: We're on the lake side of the paved road, so we're very accessible. Since there's an open slip in the boathouse and a nearby boat ramp it's easy to bring your own boat.
Seed Lake is not a turbulent lake like Lanier. It's small enough that it's not total confusion. If you have friends on Burton or Rabun you're just a quick car ride away.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Nobody has the view and location we do.
