Vacation in this beautifully updated, three bedroom water front cottage situated on an inviting level lot with gorgeous views of Lake Burton, and the surrounding mountains.
The house is located in a private neighborhood accessed by a flat paved road and driveway with plenty of parking. The house comfortably sleeps eight, and features two flat screened televisions with Direct T.V. Satellite, DVD player, iPod dock, fully equipped kitchen, open dining and living areas, gas fireplace, and washer/dryer. The large screened in porch offers additional eating and sitting areas, and the adjacent deck has a gas grill with hook up.
A double deck boathouse, with slip available for your boat, features areas for sunning and taking in the view, or you can escape the sun and enjoy a cool beverage under the shade of the pergola. A private swimming dock equipped with stairs leads you gently into the clean, refreshing lake fed by cool mountain streams.
The protected, no-wake zone provides safe and peaceful swimming, floating, canoeing, and fishing. A canoe, kayak, and stand-up paddle board are provided, and if needed, boats and jet skis can be conveniently rented at LaPrades or Anchorage Marina just a few miles down the road.
The large, sod yard is perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities such as volleyball, horseshoes, and croquet, or simply take the time to unwind with a good book in the tree shaded hammock. As evening falls, circle the adirondack chairs around the built-in fire pit on the flagstone patio for a night of roasting marshmallows, storytelling, and star gazing.
A unique feature of the area is that it’s so close to everything, and at the same time feels so far away. Should you decide to do a little exploring, Lake Burton is surrounded with many opportunities for day trip adventures such as hiking, cycling, zip-lining, horseback riding, berry picking, shopping, sightseeing, and antiquing in the nearby historic southern towns of North Georgia (Clayton, Helen, Hiawassee), and Highlands, N.C.
This home is perfect for all members of the family from tots to teenagers to seniors. Vacation here and start making memories you’ll treasure for years to come…
