About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12) - Minutes to Lake Burton

Snug in the heart of a beautiful 1 1/2 acre wooded lot, this 4 bedroom, 3 and ½ bath mountain home offers instant warmth and charm as you enter the all pine great room with stacked stone fireplace, high vaulted ceiling accented by pine barked log columns and railings and red doors. The country, rustic motif flows from room to room. Enjoy morning coffee watching nature on the large covered side porch, dinner on the secluded deck or a relaxing chat on the front porch. A short walk to LaPrade's Marina, The Chophouse Restaurant and Hawg Wild BBQ makes this beautiful home the perfect location to enjoy lake activities, hiking, waterfalls, bird watching and mountain stream trout fishing. Nothing to do OR everything to do what is your fancy?

LaPrade’s Marina is the only full service marina on the lake and features boat rentals, boat launching, slip rentals and a bait and tackle shop. A great place to relax and enjoy a cold beverage, meal and entertainment on the expansive deck overlooking Lake Burton. In addition, Sugar Mill Creek RV Resort, located on Laurel Lodge Road, offers weekend entertainment with beer and wine available. The North 40 Tavern & Grill features great pizza and smoked meats and is just a short drive away. Also, within a few minutes are the Lake Burton Fish Hatchery, Wildcat Creek State Park, and Moccasin Creek State Park. Both parks offer outstanding hiking trails along the creek, fishing, and waterfalls. Pack yourself a lunch and enjoy the natural beauty of the park.

Our accommodations will sleep up to 12 guests. Our master suite has 1 king size bed with adjoining full bath and a 1/2. The 1st floor bedroom has 1 queen size bed with adjoining full bath. Our 3rd floor bedroom has 2 twin size beds with adjoining full bath. Also available are 3 queen size sleeper sofas, all in separate rooms of the house with private access to baths.

This 3 story home offers complete privacy on all levels and features 2 large family rooms with flat screen TV's, one adjacent to the kitchen and dining room on the main floor and one on the 1st floor with a kitchenette.

The Lake Burton area offers several activities such as hiking, zip line tours, horseback riding, waterfall viewing, boating and fishing on Lake Burton, white water rafting on the Chattooga, local wineries, unique shops and galleries, fly fishing in nearby trout streams, golfing, mountain biking, and several State Parks to tour.

Great mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect Get-away....

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Dew Drop Inn was just what our family 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...

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

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.
