"We love this place! We are three old friends that had not see each other for 10 years, finding the perfect place to reconnect. The house is clean, well furnished, and comfortable to hang out in. The outside double decker deck is the best feature. The covered bottom porch is dry even during a hard rain. Beds were comfortable,bathrooms well equipped and plenty of dishes, pots and pans to cook with. There is a canoe available , which we took for a spin at dusk. Can't wait to go back during warm weather for a swim."

Perfect family vacation from frequent 5 star travelers...
"My family and I (wife & 2 daughters ages 9 & 6) had the pleasure of staying at the Shangri-La for a second time in 3 years (2013) and it proved once again to be outstanding. It's the intangibles that impress me the most from Dave and Steph. From the embroidered towel (name spelled correctly!), wine and cake upon arrival to the vast assortment of cooking utensils & pottery, soft towels and linens, cleanliness and and even the toilet paper. Who invests in high quality toilet paper for rental properties??? It goes without saying, the boathouse, to me, is the gem. We played 'Uno' every evening, ate all of our meals, listened to great music, drank Champagne & wine and just enjoyed the best view of the lake during the daylight hours and plentiful stars at night on the boathouse deck. In 2013 both my daughters were a bit too scared to take advantage of swimming in the beautiful water (they are accustomed to clear beaches on the Gulf Coast), playing on the Lilly-pad or paddle sports. I couldn't get them out of the water this year. Due to the rising cost of insurance, and I completely understand, the pontoon is no longer an option but the Laprades Marina is a short 10 minute drive around the dam, bait shop and up the West side of the lake. The rental options are a plenty and very affordable and not to mention, the food at the restaurant is outstanding. We rented a 21' pontoon, the girls found a deflated tube in the laundry room and we spent 2 full days on the water exploring and throwing the girls off the tube much to their delight. That was their 'favorite' thing as told to Mr. Dave when he arrived on our last full day to say hello. This year we took a side trip to Tallulah Gorge State Park and enjoyed the falls (and over 1000 vertical steps), previous we hiked in the near by state parks. At least twice a year my wife and I travel to the Caribbean in the Spring and northeast or Colorado in the fall, Shangri-La has quickly ascended to one of my top destinations, yes, even with kids. Hats off to Dave and Stephanie. The only downside this year is that we didn't catch nearly as many bass as in 2013..."

Wonderful Place! Cozy, Comfy, Quiet and Near All Our Destinations.
"The cabin is clean, stocked with everything you could possibly need, and the décor is charming throughout. Quiet, comfy and cozy. Every direction you drive from here is beautiful. On our first full day we drove west to GA 348 and did a 2 mi. mountain hike on the Appalachian Trail http://bit.ly/1JeZaDj, then to Anna Ruby Falls, then walking and dinner in Helen at Bigg Daddys. On our second day we drove east and hiked Tallulah Gorge. Driving back we went thru the community of Lakemont and wound around the east side of Lake Rabun and what a surprise and treat! Beautiful lake vistas and adorable homes hugging the hill sides. The Mark of the Potter is just down the road from the cabin, directly on the Soquee River. It is worth a visit for the many area attraction brochures they have at the front counter, not to mention the quaint ceramics. And for .25 cents you can feed the trout from their rustic overhanging balcony. We wish we had had more time to tool around the area and see more sights. We highly recommend this wonderful place."

"Let me begin by saying that pictures do not do this home justice. The home is open and great for a large group. We were two families (7 all together) and between the beautiful dock/boat house, pool & ping pong table, and family room we had PLENTY of room. Everything in this home is well thought out. From the various screened in porches/rooms to the various fans (no AC in living and family room). The home was SPOTLESS upon arrival and no critters! The home is situated on the most peaceful cove and is easily accessible by boat and car. We ABSOLUTELY loved our stay and just can't say enough good things about it. We can't wait to come back."
