About the property

Lodge, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 19-20)

Our family has been coming to Lake Burton since 1943 and our grandmother purchased this property in 1949. With over 1000 feet of shoreline we are one of the largest lots on Lake Burton. We have so many happy family memories of swimming, touring the lake, fishing, eating at Laprades, buckdancing at Mountain City, whitewater rafting on the Chattooga River (1/2 hour away) and Nantahala River (45 minutes away) and exploring Clayton, Clarkesville, Helen and the surrounding area.

We held our family reunion here in 2011. We believe Lake Burton is special and we believe our home and property are special too. We finally tore down the cabin which was built in 1947 and built our log cabin dream house in 2007.

The house is on the main part of Lake Burton with 2.8 secluded acres and as described over 1000 feet of shoreline. From the Great Room with vaulted ceilings with all our glass doors there is a 180 degree view of the lake and Charlie Mountain. We have complete wood interior with four bedrooms with queen beds and 2 shared baths on the main level, and 2 separate bunk rooms with 2 bathrooms on the lower level. The house sleeps a total of 20 including bunk beds and a pull-out bed.

Perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing retreat place for our retreat! The beautiful, spacious cabin has a perfect location and perfect amenities for our group of 13. We had such a fun, relaxing time together, and the owner provided choices that led to the perfect catering experience. I am happy to have found such a treasure, and we will DEFINITELY be using Chiggerchaw for future retreats! Thanks for a relaxing, easy time!!!

"A happy camper"

  • 5 of 5

With our extended family of SO MANY, accomodations are rare that enable us to gather for meals, devotions, and lots of 'getting to know you better' time, but Chiggerchaw Lodge fits the bill!!! The kitchen enables preparation of meals for many, gathering places in the large great room is supert plus the screened porch for everyone to sit and simply enjoy the views, a good book, a one on one chatty encounter or all of us singing our hearts out together. The location of the lodge is incredible...a lazy hammock...a small deck to sun upon...and easy access for boats. Other features we enjoyed: the "down home" attitude of the owners, the easy parking for many cars, the comfortable feeling of a LAKE house - a home for a short while away from home.

Great for a group of 10+

  • 5 of 5

Ten guys on a fishing weekend. This place was perfect for our group. Plenty of room to cook, great table for large meals and cards. Nice large dock for boat and fishing. The Chiggerchaw Lodge had everything we needed. We didn't miss the TV one bit. If our group goes back to Lake Burton, this is the place we'll choose. You can't beat the point location on the lake.

Our Company Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This lodge is simply AWESOME! We just returned from our company retreat and it was really a success. There were 14 gentlemen and 7 ladies. The ladies stayed a a beautiful home directly across the lake from the men. We rented a pontoon boat and were able to travel back and forth between the two place conveniently. The owner was a true delight to work with in making our arrangements, and extremely helpful! There was plenty of room for each guy to have there own bed, without any sleeping bags or air mattresses. We went horseback riding and zip lining, fishing, and ate at the Dillard House our our way out Sunday morning. On Saturday night the ladies came over and we cooked steaks out on the grill followed up by S'mores for dessert. Yum! You could not have a better kitchen and dining room for a large group. And the views, WOW! The entire retreat just could not have gone any better and everyone was very please with the accommodations! Hopefully, we will be able to do it again next year!
