About Matt and Laura Freeman
Matt and Laura Freeman have been coming to Lake Burton all of our lives. Natives of Atlanta and Spartanburg we love Lake Burton and are excited to be sharing it with you. We bought Murray Cove Cottage and spent a year totally refurbishing it with all new plumbing, wiring, a/c and appliances.
Matt and Laura Freeman purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Matt and Laura Freeman chose Tiger
Murray Cove Cottage is the perfect size for one or two families to share. Being located on the north side of Murray Cove ensures that you get sun on the dock all day and the trees keep the house shaded! It is only fifteen minutes from Clatyon, GA since it is on the east side of the lake and near Bridge Creek Road. The house has amazing views and is nestled on a flat lot with a yard complete with swing and a fire pit.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Cottage has easy access with a ramp that leads to a set of french doors. The swim dock with it's umbrella and lounge chairs feels like you have your own private beach. The steps that go down into the water from the swim dock makes it easy to jump into the lake and get out. There are several places to tie up boats for people that want to bring up their boats and put them in at the boat ramp just down the road.

Beautiful home and location!
This home and the views are just incredible! We absolutely loved staying here. One of my favorite parts was having a lake view while cooking and having a glass of wine! The house is equipped with everything you would need. The layout while very efficient also has a wonderful interior design.
It was an adorable lake cottage with everything one would need on a trip.
My new favorite spot
There is no need for a second home when you can rent this amazing heavenly cottage. Everything you need for a relaxing stay while still staying true to its cottage roots. We ALL just loved it. Wish we could give it more than 5 stars...we will be back!
We are thrilled that you and your family enjoyed The Cottage so much! We think it is the perfect size for a family to get away to and enjoy the beauties of Lake Burton.
Now that cooler weather is upon us you can still get out on the lake but the fire pit starts to be more of a draw. Soon the leaves will be changing and the mountains will be ablaze with color. This is a great time to take a hike on the Appalachian Trail or to one of the many waterfalls that are near.
We hope that you will come back soon so that you can enjoy what we think is the best time to be at Lake Burton.

A perfect spot for a ladies weekend
We loved our weekend at the Murray Cove cottage! It was the perfect spot on the lake for swimming, and lounging, and watching sunsets. We would definitely come back again!
The perfect lake getaway!
I cannot say enough good things about our stay! I'm pretty sure we told everyone we know how awesome the dock was! Laura was an excellent host and was always available when we had any questions. Thank you so much Laura and Matt for letting us stay at your beautiful cottage!
Thank you Haley for the great review! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay.
Another amazing stay!
We just returned home from the best week ever and already can’t wait to go back again next year! Two years running we have had the best experience staying at Matt and Laura’s gorgeous lake house. And this year we had the added bonus of meeting them and they are even nicer in person! Thank you both for being so accommodating and all round lovely! The house is just perfect, the location amazing and the whole vacation was 10/10 from beginning to end!
Thank you Emily! We love it when folks return to stay with us. It was especially nice to meet you and your lovely family. We think The Cottage is the perfect size for a single family to come to Lake Burton and enjoy some lake time. We hope we have the pleasure of having you back next year.
Murray Cove Cottage is located on the east side of Lake Burton surrounded by the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Northeast Georgia. Lake Burton is the highest in a chain of lakes on the Tallulah River and is fed by pure mountain streams with some of the best trout fishing in the Southeast.
Lake Burton is near to Helen, Clayton and Hiawassee, Georgia and is only a 1 1/2 hour to 2 hour drive from Atlanta. The Appalachian Trail is just few miles away to the west and the Chattooga River is just 20 miles to the east.
Fishing is available year round with trout, bass, bream and walleye. There are several trout streams nearby and fishing guides work the area and are available for hire. A boat ramp is conveniently located just down the road from the Cottage making it ideal for families that wish to bring their own boat. There are also two marinas on the lake that rent boats on a daily or weekly basis.
Hiking is a great activity with Tallulah Gorge, the Appalachian Trail, Panthers Creek Trail, Bartram Trail, Chattooga River Trail and many short day hikes and waterfalls nearby. Whitewater rafting and kayaking are popular with the Chattooga River, Nantahala River and Ocoee River all close by.
