About the Property

7 Lush Private Acres, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Bunkhouse, Dock, Boathouse

Nestled in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains, Lake Burton is the first lake just below the Appalachian Continental Divide. Surrounded by multi-million dollar, 12,000 square-foot homes, we still have one of the few original lake house 'cottages' available for rent.

The original one-room structure was built by our grandmother, Leila Lindsey, Atlanta Interior Designer. As one of the first 10 properties built in the 1940's, our family has continued to maintain, add-on, and update our home, keeping the original charm in place.

The property hosts privacy and serenity on 7 lush, almost 'rain-forest-like' acres. The home sits atop a hill, overlooking the end of a cove, with a large floating dock, grassy 'beach', and boathouse (boats not included, but available for rent nearby).

Our home includes 3 bedrooms & a detached 'bunkhouse' as a 4th bedroom, available for parties of 8 or more. The queen bedroom; the '3 bears room', with 3 twins; and a large common bath. The third bedroom is the newly added, air-conditioned 'master suite', with king bed, private bath and separate side-entrance, perfect for privacy offering a more quiet area for the family with a baby or the seniors in the group. All rooms include ceiling fans.

Washer and dryer room seperates the private king suite.

The original part of the cabin still sits with large rock fireplace, large family kitchen and our 'serenity room', a relaxing screened porch overlooking the cove below. Adjacent lies a large rock patio with grills & picnic tables, the perfect set-up for outdoor-dining.

A small bunkhouse, located 50 yards from the main
house, is perfect for teenagers, sleeping up to 5 'cozily' or a private spot for a couple or small family. No bathroom, but it does offer the best outdoor shower and a 'vanity shelf' with running water. The 'Bunkhouse' is available for rentals over 8 people. An additional fee is added and is explained in the rates that follow.

Our main home can sleep up to 7 in the 3 private bedrooms; with the living room area, an additional 4-6, housing 2 sofa beds, and 2 day beds.

Small towns are within a 20-minute drive. Clayton (home of the movie 'Deliverance'), offers world-class white-water rafting on the Chatooga River. Several outfitters are available and can be found on the website. Fine dining, shopping, art galleries, golfing, and hiking are only a few of the amenities Clayton has to offer. A favorite meeting spot for bikers and music lovers (live music outdoors on weekends) is the 'Universal Joint' downtown on main street! Other 'local haunts' are noted in the 'dining section' attached.

Nearby Helen is known for its 'alpine village atmosphere' and is perfect for tube-floating, right through the middle of the village for the kids. Candy and souvenir shops abound, with biker/beer pubs for the men, and unlimited shops for the ladies in the group.

World-class trout streams are within a 10-minute drive,
including well-known Wildcat Creek, Soque and Tallulah Rivers, playing host to world-class trout with over 17-lb records! Moccasin Creek State Park offers free fishing for kids under 12 and senior citizens, only a short trek down the road or a 10-minute boat ride.
