About the property

3 Bedroom Home Sleeps 8 With Boathouse and Slip For Your Boat

Vacation in this beautifully updated, three bedroom water front ranch 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 charming 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 is provided, and if needed, boats and jet skis can be conveniently rented at LaPrades 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…

About Julie Church

I'm a retired high school teacher who has enjoyed my summers at Lake Burton for many years. Now that I split time between here and Atlanta, I enjoy sharing my lake home with others so they may experience all the joy it has brought me.

Julie Church purchased this house in 2008

Why Julie Church chose Clayton

I fell in love with Lake Burton while attending camp here as a child, and always knew I wanted to have a home here myself. This charming house in a neighborhood setting has proved to be the perfect retreat.

What makes this house unique

This house is special because it has direct access to all the exciting big water activity on the lake while providing a private lot for your family to enjoy. The house, boathouse, and flagstone patio are surrounded by a level sodded yard perfect for kids of all ages.

We totally enjoyed our stay! Perfect for families looking to unwind and enjoy the fresh mountain air! We hiked for waterfalls (Minnehaha Falls was very close and beautiful!), fished and enjoyed a warm fire by the water nearly every night. Lovely house with everything we needed! Kitchen was well stocked and the gas fireplace was very warm! :). Highly recommend Batesville Restaurant for omelettes and pancakes and a quaint country store!

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in Julie's cottage on the lake. The home was super clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, as we did a lot of cooking there. We enjoyed everything the home had to offer, especially the canoe and eating dinner on the screened-in porch each night. The kids loved the canoe and telling ghost stories around the firepit, too. Overall, it was a lovely stay!

Great weekend at Lake Burton!

  • 5 of 5

Tubing, swimming, canoeing, fishing, and laughing all together as a family! Watching the full moon come up over the lake while roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. Picture perfect weather with a nip of fall in the air. And visiting with our old friend "Sheba". I think we accidentally fed an imposter posing as "Sheba"! Great time at a lovely quaint cottage on Lake Burton! We will be back!
