Please search Facebook for 'the Gunter's lake house' for more photos of the house.
The house is located right on the lake with 100 feet of shoreline. The boathouse was built by the owner, mostly on his own. It is two stories, with two boat slips (one open and available), large steps to the top level with no landings on the decking areas, providing plenty of open sunning/sitting areas.
The lower level is open so the beautiful views of the mountains and the water are unencumbered. There are Adirondack chairs on the boathouse for relaxing. The level lot between the lake and the house, along with a large, open lot just adjacent, provides plenty of room for the kids, and adults, to play.
We built the house in 1999 so it is relatively new compared to some of the historic houses on the lake. The house is just past the no wake zone, so there is minimal boat traffic which keeps the water relatively calm and allows swimmers to get out in the water, which is always cool and refreshing throughout the summer. The lake is kept at full pond except for the annual drawdown in December. The minimal boat traffic also keeps the motor noise to a minimum.
There is great fishing right off the boathouse or sea wall. There is off street parking for four to five cars. The front of the house faces the lake and has a large screened-in porch with a custom made adirondack two seater. The house is two stories with the master and its' accompanying full bathroom occupying most of the top floor. The bathroom has stone tile floors and a large glass block window.
There is a large armoire in the master that houses a 20' television and a night table on either side of the king sized bed. Also upstairs is a loft area with a reclining sofa, and a bonus room. We have one or two double sized air mattresses for the loft area and the bonus room, with several comforters and blankets to go around.
Downstairs are two bedrooms, one with a full size bed and the other with a bunk bed with a trundle bed. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils, dinnerware, etc. There is a laundry closet with both a washer and dryer and a full bath with a glass block window.
Most of the furniture in the house was built by the owner, including the armoire, tables, the adirondack on the porch, the coffee table, the kitchen table, the bunk bed with a trundle bed and the large under-the-stairs cabinet that has the tv, CD player, DVD player and three large drawers full of board games, and the butcher block on the kitchen island.
There are four or five waterfalls within hiking distance of the house, including Minihaha, Panther, and Angel Falls. The house is within a five minute walk of the Lake Rabun Beach area which has a sand beach, outdoor grills with picnic tables, and a boat put-in. There is horseback riding within a twenty minute drive and many, many other opportunities for biking, walking, nature watching, etc. Or just relaxing.

Why the Owner Chose Lakemont, GA, USA:
We built the house on Lake Rabun because, well it is Lake Rabun. When you get here, you'll know exactly what I mean. And there are 8, 9 or 10 houses on the lake that very good friends of ours own, so when some boats full of folks wave at you when you're on the boathouse, chances are they are part of our Lake Rabun family.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Relaxation, recreation, outdoor activities, relaxation, mountain views, relaxation.
