The house, built in 1985, sits on a wooded lot above the lake. Once you arrive, drop your bags, open the french doors and walk onto the spacious screened-in porches surrounded by trees and mountain laurel. You can hear the waterfall flowing at the end of the cove… breathe-in fresh mountain air and let your vacation begin!
Overall, we think this home sleeps 6 adults comfortably with 3 double beds in private rooms. There is also a bunk room and 2 sleeping lofts. PLEASE NOTE: the lofts are not ideal for younger children because of the height and vertical ladders.
The upper level has a kitchen, dining/living area, screened porch, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, bunk room for 4 and 2 separate sleeping lofts. The lower level has a bedroom, bathroom, large comfortable living area with television, Wii, games/books, bunk beds and an adjacent laundry room. French doors lead to a screened porch with a ping pong table and corn hole boards.
Dozens of steps through the trees will take you down to the 2-level boathouse, which is stocked with floats and canoes. There is very little boat traffic in this cove — an ideal situation for swimmers. Hall’s Marina is just across the lake and visible from the boathouse.
There is parking for 3 cars. PLEASE NOTE: the driveway is very steep. Drivers will probably want to put their vehicle in a low gear. This is not an ideal driveway for large vans or trailers. (Please take this into consideration before making travel plans.)
Lakemont shopping area is an 8 minute drive. Hall’s Marina, Rabun Inn and Louie’s on the Lake are an 8 minute drive (or an even shorter boat ride). Clayton — with good dining spots — is approximately 20 minute drive. Explore nearby state parks, waterfalls, hiking trails, orchards and wineries or stay at home enjoying the beauty of Lake Rabun!
