"My husband and I rented this lovely home for a month and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is large enough for 3 couples to relax and have plenty of privacy. We took advantage of the pontoon boat for rent by the owners and enjoyed 2 wonderful days on the lake. We also went jet skiing at Lake Chatuge, hiking numerous times at Hemlock Hills, shopping in Highlands, NC and Helen and even found time for 2 days at the Kingswood Spa in Clayton. The owners, Diane and Bill, were delightful and very accommodating. They have stocked the home with everything you could ask for. This is the perfect place to escape the Florida heat and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the mountains and Lake Burton. Our favorite spot was on the covered porch off the dining room watching the hummingbirds drink the sugar nectar and listening to the band play at nearby LaPrade's Marina."

"This is our second year renting this same property. On arrival, the property was clean & immaculate. Everything worked as advertised. You know how some properties are strictly rental properties - they only have the bare minimums with silverware / appliances. Not this property, it has all the extras you will need for your stay.
Located in a secluded cove off Lake Burton, its a restful way to recharge your batteries.
The owner is extremely responsive. We encountered a small problem during our stay that was fixed quickly & efficiently to allow us to continue to enjoy our vacation. We will come back to this property."

"The cabin was absolutely perfect! Two bedrooms plus a loft provided ample sleeping accommodations. The kitchen was equipped with anything and everything you could possibly want during your stay. There were games, movies, and books in the cabin for entertainment.
The cabin was tastefully furnished and so comfortable. It was really clean and also furnished with plenty of extra blankets and linens. I'm looking forward to staying there again."

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..."
