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 Northeast Mountains

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.

Awesome Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay at your Lake Burton home was everything and more than we envisioned. First, the house was immaculate and very well laid out. We had 6 adults and three children on the trip and there was plenty of room for us all. A couple of nights were cool so we enjoyed the outdoor fire pit and there were plenty of fish biting at the dock. The full length screened porch and seating areas really set the house off. We had friends, who have a home on the lake, and their family over for dinner and a music jam session on Saturday and, again, plenty of room for all. It was such a great time that we wouldn't hesitate going back given the opportunity. Everyone loved it. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Far exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Where do I even begin!?! From the time we booked your home for our stay it has been the best experience. Mrs. Beth you have been the epitome of southern hospitality. Thank you for constantly making sure we had everything we needed.

The house far exceeded our imagination. Pictures cannot capture the beauty of the view from the back porch. We enjoyed our coffee and breakfast, lunch, and dinner outside. This was the perfect place for our family. We will most definitely be returning customers. Thank you for having such a clean, and cozy rental for us.

Most wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We love this home and location and have returned several times for family vacations. The host is very cordial, friendly, and helpful and has made her lake home so comfortable and inviting as well as beautiful that you will not want to leave. She also makes sure that basic supplies are available, including cooking supplies, condiments, bath accessories, and paper goods, and provides beach towels, rafts and lake toys, and even wood for the fire pit. I have no hesitation recommending it highly.

Burton Lake Escape

  • 5 of 5

The perfect family lake cottage getaway! Comfortable, amazingly well equipped kitchen, with great dockside set up. The views are wonderful, kayaks to enjoy, and memories to be made for little ones. We have been coming for six years, and my grandsons and family have the best memories of fishing, swimming, catching lightning bugs and giggling together at night, with the boys sleeping together in the downstairs hall. There are nine of us - nana, two sets of parents and four little boys. More than enough room for us, and I especially love the fact that it is a gradual slope to the lake with a front yard, and not a steep driveway. Owner is very easy to work with and extremely accommodating!

Owner's Response: Hi Susy, Thank you so much for your kind words and taking the time to write a recommendation. I am very grateful for your continued repeat rentals and hope that your 'girls' weekend was fun and enjoyable. Again, my condolences for the passing of your loved one. I hope that your stay at Burton Lake Escape (BLE) assisted with your healing. I know that it has been a place of great comfort for us after my mother's passing. I have you on the calendar for next year and will be in touch soon to firm up details. Best, Beth Douglas, Burton Lake Escape. 678.227.3428

Comfortable, family friendly, warm and inviting Lakeside getaway

  • 5 of 5

The secret to VRBO is understanding that there are really 2 main parts to a successul rental: the property and the owner. On both accounts this rental was a huge success! Let's start with the owner. Beth Douglas was a pleasure as a renter. She communicated clearly and in a friendly manner at all times. Her focus was on the happiness of the renter, from the condition of the property to the little touches around the house. As for the property, it too was a wonderful surprise. Very comfortable for a family of 4, plus a new grandchild. The main floor is the main living area, with a comfortable sitting arrangement. The kitchen was open and easily accessible. We loved the huge porch that ran the entire length of the back of the house. Downstairs was also comfortable and large enough for several. The grounds were well kept and beautiful. We especially liked the location on the lake, with views of the entire slough.

All in all, our family is so pleased with this vacation and we all miss being at the lake!

Wonderful and Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 4 nights with 7 people total. The house is gorgeous and comfortable. I couldn't have picked a more cozy place to stay. Amazing views of the lake and sunset. The cove is great for paddle boarding, kayaking, etc. as well. The beds are super comfy and the house had everything we needed, including a fully stocked kitchen. Beth is wonderful and gave plenty of details about the property, area, etc. We also rented a pontoon from Anchorage that we enjoyed cruising around the lake on. We will DEFINITELY be staying at this house again! :) Thank you Beth!!!!!!
