About Marti Schwab

Our family first started going to Lake Burton in the early 70s and rented a rustic cabin at Cherokee Landing camp. We loved it so much that we eventually bought our own property and have been enjoying the Lake ever since. We would spend our week days in Atlanta and weekends at Lake Burton. We have all grown up now and with that our lives have gotten busier with our children, their sports schedules, etc. So we unfortunately aren't able to get there as much as we would like so that's when we decided to share it with others! Let us share some of our southern hospitality with you and your family.

Marti Schwab purchased this house in 1972

Why Marti Schwab chose Clayton

The original cabin that stood on this lot was purchased by my family in 1972. It was a 3 room rustic cabin with a great screened porch. It was tiny but we have so many great memories of our childhood vacations...water skiing, tubing, fishing, playing games, hunting for Indian pottery on the shoreline, etc. We lost the old cabin to a fire approximately 17 years ago, so we rebuilt it bigger to accommodate our growing families and have been making improvements and new memories ever since! It now has a master bedroom on the main floor and open kitchen, dining and living room areas as well as a screened porch running along the entire top floor overlooking the Lake. We love to go up and relax. It is so peaceful...away from the hussle and bussle of Atlanta traffic. Now it is time for you to build some wonderful memories for your own family. Rent today!

What makes this house unique

A very relaxed, casual atmosphere. Tasteful cabin feel. Nice amenities without being too stuffy. Right on Lake at end of cove. Safe for kids.

Great cabin and we will definitely return next year

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin. It is very well equipped. The owner was always reachable and accommodating. On our second day the recent hurricane passed through robbing us of our electric power and shortening our stay by half. We will return!!

We loved our stay. So quiet and peaceful, but also full of fun activities!

  • 5 of 5

We chose the lake over the beach this year for our Fall Break. Love that is close to home but yet so far away from the busyness of life.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! We try to provide tons of games and toys for all ages so we are glad to hear you enjoyed them! The great thing about Lake Burton is it isn't too far away from Atlanta and you can be a busy as you want or just read a book and do nothing at all! Hurry back soon when you need a fix!

The Perfect Choice for a Lake Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent ten days in an idyllic setting on Lake Burton at the perfect house for my husband and myself and our son's family of five. "Burton Lake Escape" had everything we were looking for: a house that was roomy enough, yet still comfortable with a cozy home-away-from-home feel, and that's just what we found. The furnishings were very comfy... the two large sofas in the great room were big and soft, the beds were extremely comfortable, the dining room table had ample room for all of us, and all of it very clean and with a decorator' s touch. The kitchen was open to the living area and filled with quality equipment. But the best part of the house was "The Porch"...a huge screened room running the length of the upper floor which allowed us to feel as if we were in a tree house with birdsong and cool breezes and a way to feel like we were on the lake, even on the couple of rainy days we had! Attention to detail was evident in every room. The landscaping was beautiful... stone pathways, flowers, even an herb garden we were encouraged to use! Benches, swings, a hammock, a ping-pong table, a fire pit area, were all welcome amenities. We brought our boat and jet ski and had a perfect spot to tie up at the boathouse dock with room for parking the trailers on the circular driveway. Something I really appreciated was that the house was fairly close to lake level, so with my recent knee surgery, there were not hundreds of stairs to climb up and down! Finally, I must say we so very much appreciated being able to bring our doggies!!! We have stayed in other houses on Lake Burton, but this is the house we look forward to returning to! The owners were very responsive and kind! We loved it! Thank you so much!
