4 Bed, 3.5 Bath in Quiet Cove.
Our beautiful home, designed by award-winning Kansas City architects and infused with Italian elements, is a perfect vacation spot any season of the year. Surrounded by nature, prepare to swim, float, or just kick back in our quiet cove. Enjoy spectacular views, climb cool waterfalls or catch bass --- all within close walking distance. Or, take a short drive to fly through the forest on a zip line, tour wineries, ride horseback, shop for antiques or hike one of Rabun County's many trails. Local rentals of ski boats, pontoons and wave runners can be arranged, or you can bring your boat and moor it at the dock. A launching ramp is one mile away, and there is room to park your boat trailer at the house. Easily accessible on Lake Rabun Road, the home is less than two hours from Atlanta.
After a day of lake and mountain experiences, you'll love our open floor plan, through which the kitchen, great room, dining room and TV room flow seamlessly. The two-story soaring great room with numerous windows and French doors allows sunlight and mountain vistas to grace the home. In the spring/summer, you'll love the expansive screen porch for reading, napping or dining. In the fall/winter, the radiant heat system in the stained concrete floor will keep your toes toasty, and two wood-burning fireplaces (one indoors and one out) will take the chill off. The lookout tower on the third level will make you feel like you are on top of the world.
In the evening, crank up the gas grill and, later, build an outdoor fire. Enjoy smores around the stone fire pit under the stars. Your Rabun vacation will create memories for years to come.

We are fifty-somethings who have been married 31 years. We credit this house, which we built in 1999, for helping us to raise environmentally-curious children (now adults) who love fishing and water-skiing as well as late-night card games. We have been enjoying Lake Rabun for 21 years.

Week at Lake Rabun
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us for the week. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there- and really appreciated the thoughtful details that you left to make our stay more enjoyable. The kids loved the s'mores ingredients that were left for us- and I especially appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was.
Thank you for being so responsive and hospitable! We really enjoyed our week at Lake Rabun and plan to return again soon!
We are so glad that all of you enjoyed yourselves. Thanks for the feedback. We hope to host you again.
We grew up on Lake Rabun, and enjoyed being able to spend a week with our family on the lake. We absolutely loved the cove and the neighbors. Everyone was so welcoming! The house is great for 8 people to sleep comfortably, and it is well stocked. The boat house and dock is where you will spend most of your time. We did take advantage of the hiking near by, rented a boat, and enjoyed pizza from Louie's. We were there over the 4th of July so the Rabun Ramble was fun for my husband and daughter. Wonderful home, wonderful owners...totally recommend!
Excellent Adult Family Vacation
We had an awesome week at this lovely home and property! Everything was beautiful and very well maintained. We took our own ski boat and the cove was perfect for docking. We enjoyed boating, water sports and hiking while we were there. Evenings around the firepit were very relaxing. There are a few wineries nearby and we took in a wine tasting as well. We spent as many hours as we could outside enjoying the beautiful lake and surrounding area. We hope to return to the area again! Thank you sharing this wonderful home and property!
I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay. So glad you got to visit the wineries, too. We hope to do venture out to the vineyards soon. I look forward to hosting you again.
Elegant Villa, Amazing Stay at Rabum
Our family of four (two adults, two teens) thoroughly enjoyed our time at this property. The 60-some stairs from house to lake transport you from the comfortable house with amazing rocking chair screened porch and fire pit patio to the fully appointed boathouse and swim deck. We enjoyed a boat rental from Interstate Boats (Ernie's the best!), and appreciated the use of the tube and other lake floats. Dinner in Clayton was a nice break from cooking, although the kitchen had everything we needed for some fabulous meals. Although we took several hikes, including up to Angel Falls, it was hard to tear ourselves away from the pull of the water. When the sun set, the fire pit became the center of attention. Picture perfect time at Rabun in every way.
We are delighted that you enjoyed yourselves. You were perfect guests, and we hope that you will treat yourselves to a week of floats and boats again next year.
Lake Rabun is beautiful and this home is a perfect compliment! It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The house and boathouse were clean, comfortable and relaxing. Lounge chairs on the swim deck and floats in the boathouse were a plus! We brought our own boat and docked it at the boathouse with no concerns from the quiet cove. We loved the screened in porches and the outdoor fire pit, which came stocked with seasoned, dry wood that was split and ready to burn. The house is very well appointed and located conveniently to Halls Boathouse and Louie's on the Lake-we plan to return for many years to come! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.
It certainly was hot when you were here! I'm glad you were able to enjoy the lake and the mountain air and time with family. I hope you'll come again. Thank you for your kind review.
Fabulous family vacation at the lake
This rental is exactly as described and more. The home is beautiful, well kept, very large, and comfortable. It has everything we needed for a fabulous, relaxing and family bonding vacation. We rented a boat for the first 4 days from Young Harris Watersports, which delivered the boat to the marina around the corner, and we docked at the home's boathouse and dock. The days we didn't have a boat we enjoyed laying on inner-tubes and rafts in the quiet cove. At night we roasted marshmallows and made s'mores using the homes firepit and supplies that were so generously left for us by the owners. On our last day we hiked up to Panther Falls from the house which was a treat as well. Thank you for sharing your wonderful property with us. We will definitely use this property again.
I am glad you enjoyed yourselves! Thank you for your kind words - I hope to have you as a guest at the lake house again soon.
