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.

Fantastic Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several lake houses on Lake Burton but none of them have compared to this one as far as location, cleanliness, and all the comforts of home. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is stocked with everything needed to cook a meal. We enjoyed docking our pontoon at the the dock and the girls enjoyed floating around the dock. Marti is a pleasure to communicate with and we will definitely be back!

Thanks so much!!!

The temps were chilly during our stay but the house was cozy! My family enjoyed paddling around the lake and building a fire in the pit. Will definitely come back!

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!!
