About owner/property manager

I am an Atlanta native and graduated from The Lovett School. I earned my undergraduate and master's degrees at Georgia State University. Currently, I own a small retail store, Belles Choses (French for beautiful things) in Sandy Springs Georgia. I can be reached there for any questions about our house before you book. My husband is a Mississippi native, but he moved to Atlanta in 1973 to start a Colo-rectal surgery practice, after graduating from Tulane Medical School. We were married in 1976 and have four children who have wonderful memories of spending summers and holidays at Lake Rabun. My husband is currently retired, and we are enjoying our 6 granddaughters!

owner/property manager purchased this House in 1992

Why owner/property manager chose Lakemont

Lake Rabun offers the wonderful opportunity to boat, ski, or tube on friendly water just big enough to do all of that, but just small enough not to get lost! Our children grew up loving trips to this house and enjoyed entertaining friends from pre-teens into adulthood. This is a place that offers solitude when you need it, activity when you want it, and relaxation at it's best. Do as much or as little as you want. Go tubing or water skiing til your muscles ache, or just enjoy a simple slow crawl around the lake admiring all nature has to give. Feed the ducks from the dock. Sip a glass of wine on the top of the boathouse at sunset. Prop your feet up and read a good book. Celebrate an important birthday. Go to sleep with the windows open listening to the crickets and frogs, or close them and sleep in total, blissful, quiet. Cook as many pancakes as your belly can hold. Or don't cook anything and go up the street about a mile to one of Georgia's finest restaurants for brunch. Take a trip to Clayton, and enjoy one of the few remaining soda fountains in the country. Explore the antique shops and art galleries. Come back to peace and quiet for your last night. Cry because it's time to go back home.

What makes this House unique

This is a house that has it all. It has 6 bedrooms. It's close to the marina, the main highway, and to many good restaurants. There is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy your privacy. Or you can enjoy the company of family or good friends while grilling a steak and reminiscing about special times together. You are only steps away from the water. There are no huge stairways to get from the house to the dock. So if you forget your suntan lotion when you get to the dock, no big deal. It's beautifully decorated with comfort as a priority and all the little touches you will love, like a warming drawer, multiple coffee makers, luxury linens, multiple places to nap, maid service, and plenty of entertainment if the weather prevents you from enjoying the outdoors. You'll never want to rent anywhere else again! Be sure when looking at other properties that you understand whether there are multiple steps to get to the boathouse, whether the house is on the lake or just "near" the lake, whether the house is on the "paved road" side or the "dirt road" side. The "dirt road" side takes much longer to get to from the main road.

Spectacular view from the sun porch and boat house. All hardwood and tile/marble floors throughout, so no musty carpet smells or allergy triggers from wall to wall carpet. Guests will love enjoying an early morning cup of coffee on the sun porch, boat house, or privately in their bedrooms with 3 coffee makers throughout. Perfect house for wedding events on the lake, and SO close to the marina, the main highway, and those necessary trips to Walmart and Home Depot (15 minutes away). Wonderful little country store that has deli sandwiches, ice cream, and basic supplies only 5 minutes away. On the "paved road" side of the lake. No huge staircases to get to the boat house.

                                                              This was our family's first time to Lake Rabun and we fell in love with the area! The house was SO beautiful and very comfortable! We had 9 adults and a baby and we still had an empty room. The house could have comfortably fit more. The house is decorated beautifully and the beds and bedding were all very comfortable. The owners spared no expense. The boathouse was so perfect and relaxing. We really enjoyed being able to step out of the back door and float and fish in the lake. We also brought 2 of our own boats and tubes and we were able to easily tie them up to the dock. The kitchen and house was stocked with everything we needed for the perfect long weekend at the lake! The shopping, restaurants, and wineries nearby were a great bonus! Great owners that are easy to work with. We will be back!
