Great mountain retreat
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.
Bill & Diane were great hosts and their house is great for a getaway. It's walking distance to LaPrade's Marina (although we drove because of rain) and only minutes away from restaurants and parks. Although we only cooked once, the kitchen was fully stocked. Bill & Diane are always available to help/answer questions.
Our stay at the Dew Drop Inn was just what our family needed....it had the warmth of being at "Home," but had the relaxation of being away from home. It was quiet and secluded, but was very convenient to LaPrade's Marina , where you could find many available activities and plenty of entertainment. We look forward to returning...
Our stay at the Dew Drop Inn was nothing short of magnificent. The Inn was private, very clean, spaceous and within walking distance of Lake Burton at Laprades Marina and restaurants.
The three story Inn has a warm rutic beauty with private sitting rooms outside each bedroom. The four decks came in very handy for our group of 5 adults and three children. We will return.
