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.

                                                          Dear Josh,

                                                          We are so glad that you enjoyed the New Years holiday at The Cottage. It is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy time with your friends. We hope that you will come back and stay with us.


                                                          Laura and Matt

                                                          Cottage was spectacular!! Spotless, beautifully decorated with function in mind.

                                                          Liesbeth W.

                                                          Beautiful, lakefront cottage is open-concept, making it feel airy, yet cozy. Our family of 4 + Papa comfortably stayed 3 nights. (We visited in Dec and heat kept us warm.) Cottage has everything you'll need if you choose to prepare meals or grill. Restaurants, hiking, boating, zipline, shopping and more are all easy to get to. Matt and Laura were so gracious & personable. They've obviously put a lot of thought into the layout & design and genuinely care about their guests. Enjoy amazing sunsets from the deck, front porch or living room! Place is solid - no squeaky floors or doors. The dock/deck, cottage and surrounding grounds were all well-maintained. Just perfect!!

                                                          Dear Liesbeth,

                                                          We are so pleased that you and your family had a great time at The Cottage! Winter is a great time to be in the mountains and to go exploring. We were up there this weekend and there was snow on all the ridges. Beautiful! We hope that you will come back again soon. We are already get booked up for spring and summer so check your calendar now if you think that you might want to try back then.

                                                          My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend and we loved the cottage! It is beautiful, comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen is very well supplied with nice quality cooking ware. The bed is very comfortable. My husband kept commenting on how clear the picture was while we watched a movie. The view of the lake is gorgeous and there is easy access to Clayton and hiking trails. We hope to be back soon! Thanks much for sharing your home with us!

                                                          Dear Jackie,

                                                          We can't agree with you more. The Cottage is a perfect place for a quick getaway weekend. It is so close to Atlanta that we frequently go up just for the day!

                                                          We are so glad that you enjoyed the TV. We just upgraded with the help and advice of one of our renters and it really is nice.

                                                          This is such a good time to be in the mountains. The hiking and sightseeing are great but sometimes it is just nice to relax.

                                                          Thank you for you kind review and we hope to have you back soon.

                                                          Awesome house on a great lake spot

                                                          Chelsea B.Atlanta, GA

                                                          Even thought the house was smaller it felt enormous! Very cute and clean. I rented the house to get away for a few days and was not disappointed. I spend a lot of time reading and relaxing on the dock, paddle boarding (brought my own), and outside by the fire at night. Would definitely do it again!

                                                          Thank you for your kind review and we hope you will come back and stay with us again!

                                                          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.
