Make plans now for your Spring Hill Sweets stay and give yourself permission to relax in this exceptional mountain retreat nestled among the north Georgia mountains, overlooking beautiful Lake Burton! Available amenities include Wi-Fi, full-sized kitchen, separate laundry room, two bedrooms with queen-size beds, two full-size bathrooms, unique wood-burning rock fireplace, a nice gas grill, large dining table and large picture windows showcasing Lake Burton and seasonal mountain splendor, making this updated home a complete package! Picture yourself relaxing on the front porch, enjoying a picnic in the backyard, and drinking your fresh morning coffee as you take in the beauty of the north Georgia mountains.
The custom-built TV cabinet houses a flat-screen TV, with DISH network, which extends and swivels to fit your viewing needs. It also has a built-in DVD player and an HDMI cable available for laptops with HDMI ports to view internet on the TV screen. You have the option to plug in your Google Chromecast to play Pandora or Netflix from your smart phone, Ipad, or laptop on the TV screen.
The over-sized kitchen counter is perfect for laptops, games, cooking needs, or eating. The kitchen is well-equipped for most of your everyday cooking needs including a blender, crock pot and waffle iron. For coffee and tea lovers, you have a Cuisinart 12-cup coffee maker with hot water spout for tea bags (filters and coffee provided). The open floor plan promotes a feeling of fun and fellowship! This cabin was tailor-made for honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays, or quiet get-away retreats, as well as making memories with family and friends. Retreat to the mountains where you can commune with nature in the beautiful surroundings of mature trees, quiet creek sounds, and the calm water of early mornings when the fog lifts from the serene Lake Burton!
This property boasts of opportunities nearby for waterfalls, seasonal water sports, hiking, excellent trout fishing, and additional outdoor sports. It's a short walk to LaPrade's Marina and gift shop, the open-air grill and pier, The Chop House Steakhouse, and LaPrade's pavilion. It's only a short drive to Clayton, to Helen, and to Clarkesville, GA, where restaurants, shopping, and ample points of interest reside beyond Lake Burton. Treat yourself to a true vacation, a get-away packed with relaxation, renewal, and replenishment. We are delighted you have interest in viewing our cabin. We pray your stay will warm your hearts and build happy memories, just as it does for us!

Owner info

About the owner: Robert and I first met on the original LaPrade's resort property in August 1973 at the ages of 23 and 19. Robert's family owned LaPrade's, and Robert was supervisor to the staff, which included myself during summer break between my freshman and sophomore year of college. Quite an impression was made for one another. Thirty-seven years later, our paths crossed, and we met for lunch to 'catch up'. That lunch led to dating, which led to an engagement. which led to marriage in May 2010. Our family time is something we all treasure! We love the lake, the mountains, snow skiing/snow boarding, tennis, disk golf, picnics, the beach and good music. When together with daughters & son-in-law, we enjoy hanging out, exploring, watching movies, playing games, preparing delicious family dinners, and all the outdoor activities listed above. Since becoming grandparents in December 2014, we've added new favorites to our family get-togethers! We know that all good things come from the Lord! Our hearts' desire is to glorify Him in all things! Thank you for checking out our website. God's Blessings! Mary & Robert

Why the Owner Chose Clarkesville, GA, USA:
This property has special memories for us. We met on the original LaPrades property in 1973. Robert and his family owned and managed LaPrades for 30 years. Years later, while planning our wedding in 2010, we renovated this home where the LaPrades' head farmer once lived. The Spring Hill Sweets cabin represents new beginnings, unexpected blessings, treasured get-aways, special relationships, and opportunities for building memories! We look forward to helping you plan an exceptional vacation at the Spring Hill Sweets cabin!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Convenient proximity with LaPrades Marina with Gift Shop, sandwich shop on boardwalk and Fine Dining upstairs. Boat rentals and launching ramp also available. Visit Tallulah Gorge and take scenic routes around beautiful Lake Burton, Lake Seed and Lake Rabun!! Equal distance (only 18 miles) to Helen, Clayton, and Clarkesville, GA. An opportunity to experience the amazing North Georgia Mountains surrounding Lake Burton!
