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!!
Why the Owner Chose Lake Burton: 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!!
The Unique Benefits at this House: very close to Laprades marina and restaurant when you need it!!
