About Kim Burger

John and I have been married for over 30 years. We have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. John and I started our business over 25 years ago. He is a builder and owner of Action Flooring Contractors. We love going to the lake, fishing, swimming, skiing and having parties for our friends and family. We love traveling and we believe life is short, Live everyday like it is your last, Love with all your heart.

We love entertaining, going to church and spending quality time with our family and friends.

Kim Burger purchased this house in 2005

Why Kim Burger chose Northlake

We purchased the property because of the location. The property is only 20 minutes from our house in Powdersville. We can jump in the car at the end of a hectic day and fish our troubles away. We are a very active family and the Tennis court was a major plus. We will get up early in the morning and play tennis. We have a huge family and needed a place where everyone had someting to do.

What makes this house unique

My favorite thing to do is sit out on the deck with a book and read. I love taking late night rides down the lake, very romantic. I love watching all a basketball game while cooking out. The house seems like you are miles and miles away, then jump in the car and you are in the center of town with endless things to do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a delightful 3 days our family enjoyed at your lakehouse! It just went by too quickly! We spent most of the time out on the lake with the boat, and all the "kids" from the 40's on down to 4 had great fun skiing, kneeboarding and tubing. We ended our boating time Friday evening with a beautiful sunset cruise! We also enjoyed the pool table, basketball and shuffleboard. By the way, your remodeled kitchen is really beautiful!! Your house is so well equipped. We had such a good time. We enjoyed your house both times that we have been here. Thank you so much

Wonderful Lake House with all the toys!

  • 4 of 5

Our family and friends had a great time at "Madison's Cove", a beautifully decorated lake house on Lake Hartwell, about 2.5 hours northeast of Atlanta. The home, which is well furnished with all the "normal" things, also has floats, lounge chairs and fishing poles, as well as tennis rackets and a basketball to use on the backyard courts. We donated some new tennis balls, a bait bucket and a couple of floats to the collection! There is plenty to enjoy, and the Walmart Super Store is only a short drive away, so groceries and forgotten items are easily reached. Remember to purchase fishing licenses on line and print before you come to avoid hassle of having to appear in person to make purchase in Dicks, or machine being down at Walmart.

The downstairs pool table in the den provided lots of fun, and the downstairs patio/grilling area was a popular hangout, although the large sliding glass door from the den to that patio wasn't functioning at the time of our stay, which detracted significantly from the functionality and our enjoyment of that area, since the patio guests and guests in the den playing pool couldn't interact with one another. Bummer! Hopefully that will be fixed soon, as that is the reason for the 4 rather than 5 star rating.

We rented the pontoon boat that is available and had a blast riding up and down the lake pulling the kids on a big raft that was provided. The boat's Bimini top made for a cool, comfortable ride, even on the bright sunny days that we were so fortunate to have.

The sleeping arrangements were very comfortable, with three bedrooms upstairs, and a comfy coach-for-one in the living room), a foldout coach downstairs in the poolroom/den, and a bedroom downstairs off the den (with it's own bathroom with shower). We slept eight very comfortably. Note that the upstairs main bathroom has only a tub, so showers upstairs must be taken in the master bedroom's bath. Having said that, however, bring bubble bath and enjoy a nice soak in the tub! The tub got plenty of use while we were there. Everyone, it seems, likes bubble baths (with candles) while on vacation at the lake!

One caveat, the path down to the lake, as with almost any house on Lake Hartwell, is very steep, so this house is not ideal for anyone physically or mobility challenged. I am proud to say, however, that my 80+ yr old parents managed it fairly well and we all got a great work out going up and down the nice concrete path from the house to the lake.

Perfect place for families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time sharing this property with another family. Our children enjoyed the many recreational features such as basketball, shuffleboard, billiards, and games! Having a basement for the kids was great! The dock and lake are beautiful, and the cove is very quiet with almost no boat traffic. The home was well suited for families and the owners were extremely responsive to any questions and concerns that arose. We would recommend and consider staying there again.

House is in a great location. The property is very clean and well kept. Really enjoyed the updates.

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time. The only thing that would make this better is if the hall bath had a shower. That way everyone doesn't have to use the small bathroom in the master. That may be in the works. Love the house and will stay there again.

Great Place to Reconnect and Have Fun

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the property and the lake. Kim and John were amazing to work with and all of our needs were provided. The property was very clean and cozy. We all felt right at home. We vacation with our best friends every summer and this place provided a wonderful way to reconnect with our (mostly) college-aged children and each other. The men enjoyed playing tennis almost daily; while my 16 year old and his friend enjoyed basketball and shuffleboard. We grilled out almost every evening (a charcoal and propane grill were provided). We also rented the pontoon boat from Kim and John. The boat was awesome. We enjoyed riding around in the lake each day. One feature that was so helpful was that they included a rolling gas can which made it easy to fill up the boat each day and the Jet Ski we rented at substantially less cost that going to the marina. Overall we had a wonderful vacation and would definitely book again. Thank you Kim and John for opening your home to us and sharing in your love for Madison. :)

Amazing house and awesome time on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house with another family to celebrate our kids graduating from college and boy was it perfect! The house exceeded all of our expectations. There are so many things to do after a full day tubing on the lake. We had a corn hole competition, volleyball and basketball games and ended our nights around the fit pit with smore's. I would highly recommend this house The owners are so easy to work with and were always just a phone call away to help us with any of our questions. Our kids are already planning our next trip. :)
