Lake Burton cottage description

Lake Burton, Georgia USA, waterfront cottage . Located in the Northeast Georgia Mountains.
Two-story waterfront Cottage, recently renovated on a very private level lot. Three Bedrooms, two full Baths, Den, Living Room and separate Dining Room. Beautifully appointed, sleeps up to 6.

Lake Burton is the Southeast's finest lake destination. Spectacular views, cool clear water, and moderate summer-time temperatures. This home is designer-owned, custom built, and recently renovated with a mix of new and antique furniture accented by original art. It has a fabulous attached screened porch right on the waterfront for dining or just relaxing in the rocking chairs. The house is equipped with a fully digital electric cook-top, oven, warming tray, microwave oven and includes hard-coat aluminum cookware and full utensils perfect for gourmet cooking or quick and easy casual meals. There is a Webber gas grill with all utensils so you can cook on the waterfront while enjoying a sunset.

Our private cove affords spectacular long views to the west and great swimming. You can enjoy the hammock strung between two trees in the shade of the side yard or take our canoe out for a leisure tour of the cove.

Bring your boat and tie up along side our boat house at our covered private dock and.. the best thing is that the free to use boat ramp is just two minutes away. By boat it maybe 5 minutes.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1982

                      About the owner: My background is in architecture, graphic design and marketing services. I am semi-retired but still consult. My wife Keri was once an active partner and ran our Interior Design Studio but now writes and teaches in full time ministry. Our firm helped shape many landmark projects mostly here in the Southeast but also in other major markets within the United States and a few here and there in Europe and the Middle East. Our cottage is not a reflection of our commercial real estate work but more a reflection of our desire to have a comfortable yet tasteful and simple place for relaxation and...a place for the kids to play and enjoy themselves while they make memories for later... and happily we get to watch. I love to draw and paint so if you stay at the cottage you will find several originals on the walls. Most of which are of Lake Burton and the beautiful mahogany boats that live here.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lake Burton:
                      Lake Burton is one of the most beautiful lakes in the region. The water is clear and the water level hasn't varied 6' all summer. On first sight Lake Burton reminded me of the lakes in the Ozarks where I used to fish with my Grandpa more than a half century ago. My grandchildren and now my Great-grandson are set to have a lifetime of memories of their own. We just started sharing our cottage in 2006 when we listed it with VRBO but we have owned it for over 30 years. With the most recent renovation completed in the summer of 2006, it remains our family's favorite place in the world. We have been fortunate to share our cottage with some of the most wonderful people and by the way they take care of our cottage I assume they must love it as much as we do.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      After our first two years at Lake Burton we looked all over the lake trying to find just the right house and location. After two years of looking we decided we already had everything we were looking for. So we decided to renovate, expand and stay where we were. We made it fit our family. We had an almost flat piece property safely tucked back in a cove with a wonderful view. We found out the combination was hard to find on Lake Burton. Our location is close to Atlanta and only a 15 minute drive from Clayton. The Free boat ramp provided by Georgia Power is just a short walk from the cottage. And... most importantly we are tucked away and distant from major boat and the water ski traffic.
