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 am a teacher who has enjoyed my summers at this house for many years. I am now very excited to be able to share my home with others, so that they may experience all of the joy it has brought me.

Julie Church purchased this house in 2008

Why Julie Church chose Northeast Mountains

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.

Relaxation! Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded our expectations! We had a fun and relaxing family vacation. This beautiful cottage has everything you need and it is close to historic downtown Clayton's shops and gourmet restaurants. We enjoyed visiting Helen Georgia, hiking to Ana Ruby Falls and canoeing on beautiful Lake Burton. Sunrise and sunsets were spectacular sitting outside by the fire pit or on the screened in porch. We would have loved to stay longer and hope to return soon!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property for a weekend gathering with friends to celebrate a friend's upcoming wedding. Everybody LOVED the house and accommodations. We took advantage of basically everything that this place had to offer - gas grill, canoe/kayak, fire pit, screened deck, etc. I would definitely recommend it to someone looking for a relaxing weekend on the lake!

Charming lake house in great location on lake!

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing not to love about this charming home. My girls loved every minute of it. We can't wait to go back in summer and rent a boat. The location on the lake is perfect. The owner, Julie, was so easy to work with.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable and easily accommodated five adults and

two children, aged 12 and 9. Family time around the fire pit, away from work or homework made for great conversation and relaxation. Being away from city lights allowed us to see a magnificent star filled sky. We all agreed that we will look forward to more visits to your very nice house.
