Lake Burton house description

Our home is a cozy, renovated ranch house just steps from the water on Lake Burton, just 1.5-2 hours outside of Atlanta. Lake Burton is a 2,775 acre lake with 62 miles of shoreline located in the northeastern corner of Georgia in the Blueridge Mountains. Nestled in lush forests with tons of hiking, boating, fishing and exploring, our lake home makes the perfect escape from city life! Tour the lake by boat and explore the beautiful coves as well as the gorgeous homes and unique boat houses! Our house is stocked with water-sports gear and life jackets, etc. Gorgeous sunset views over the mountains from the screened porch and two docks. Boat rentals are available at nearby Laprades marina and restaurant (2 miles away; 8 min boatride), Achorage Marina or several other boat rental sites. Nearby Helen, GA is a great tourist spot: It has shopping, camping, river-tubing, waterpark, restaurants, theater, recreation, family activities, waterfalls, museums, history, art, golf, and more. There is also a nearby fishery and campgrounds with playground. Generous master bedroom with newly renovated master bathroom, including a double shower and whirlpool tub. Guest bedroom with queen bed, and bunk room with two sets of bunkbeds, as well as twin air mattress, futon and pack-n-play available. Guest hall bathroom has a renovated shower/tub combination.

                  About the owner: Family from Atlanta with 4 young children. As a child, I grew up going to 'the lake' with various friends, and I always dreamed of having a place of our own!! We hope to share this with others who feel the same about the peaceful, gorgeous getaway!!

                  We LOVE our spot on the lake!! Our home sits just a few steps away from the lake on a flat lot which is a must-have for young children at the lake! we have a great yard, and two large docks - Our cove is perfect for swimming, skiing, wakeboarding, etc - all right in front of our home!! There is very little boat traffic and gorgeous sunset views over the mountains!!
