Property description

Our home is a cozy, renovated ranch house just steps from the water on Lake Burton, just 1.5-2 hours outside of Atlanta. Lake Burton is a 2,775 acre lake with 62 miles of shoreline located in the northeastern corner of Georgia in the Blueridge Mountains. Nestled in lush forests with tons of hiking, boating, fishing and exploring, our lake home makes the perfect escape from city life! Tour the lake by boat and explore the beautiful coves as well as the gorgeous homes and unique boat houses! Our house is stocked with water-sports gear and life jackets, etc. Enjoy gorgeous sunset views over the mountains from the brand new boat house with top deck seating and dining areas. Brand new swim dock, water mat, kids kayaks and paddle board available to use. Fire pit with adirondack chairs for roasting marshmellows. Boat rentals are available at nearby Laprades marina and restaurant (2 miles away; 8 min boatride), Anchorage Marina or several other boat rental sites. Clayton, Ga is a 20 min drive and has several new yummy restaurants and nearby Helen, GA is a great tourist spot with restaurants, river tubing, mini golf, waterparks and more. There is also a nearby fishery and campgrounds with playground. Beautiful Highlands and Cashiers, NC are only about an hour away and offer great shopping and eating as well.
House has a generous master bedroom with newly renovated master bathroom, including a double shower and whirlpool tub. Guest bedroom with queen bed, and bunk room with two sets of bunk beds, as well as twin air mattress, futon and pack-n-play available. Guest hall bathroom has a renovated shower/tub combination.
