About the property

Spacious Getaway with Incredible Views

Designed for togetherness while being mindful of the occasional desire for privacy, this incredible home was built to host mega-crowds in comfort and with ease. As you enter the home you are greeted by big mountain and long water views from the spacious lodge style great room. Warm and inviting, the 3-story room features a vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses, a masonry stone fireplace with gas logs, oak flooring and pine paneled walls. A wall of French doors leads to a spacious lakeside screened porch that runs the length of the home with an area for rocking chairs, dining and an outdoor living room with a river stone, wood burning fireplace. The private and peaceful space frames jaw dropping mountain views, providing the perfect spot for relaxing by the water. The porch is conveniently equipped with hurricane shutters to keep out pollen, wind and rain when the home is not in use.

The great room includes dining for 10+ and an open kitchen equipped with a breakfast bar island, double oven, under counter ice maker, 5 burner gas cooktop, built in microwave, Bosch dishwasher and walk-in pantry. Around the corner is a dry bar, laundry room with sink and entry to the 2 car garage. A half bath and coat closet are located off the foyer.

The private master bedroom is located off the great room offering lake and mountain views. The spacious master bath features a double vanity, separate water closet, air-jetted tub, separate tiled shower with seamless glass door and a generous walk-in closet.

Enjoy working from the main floor study equipped with a stone fireplace, full bath and French doors that lead out to the lakeside screened porch.

Finishing off the main floor is a guest bedroom with pickled pine walls and a private bathroom with tiled bath/shower combo.

Located upstairs is a large lofted game room/living room that overlooks the great room with windows providing lake and mountain views. This is a great space for reading or playing board games. Also located upstairs are four guest bedrooms, each with pine paneled walls, ample closet space and private bathrooms with tiled shower/tub combos. Two of the bedrooms feature lake views and closets large enough to house a crib. One of the bedrooms features access to a large, unfinished storage room above the garage.

The terrace level features a bright and open family room with a stone fireplace, built-in media cabinet, whitewashed pine paneling, coffered ceiling and French doors leading to a covered stone terrace. The family room opens to a dining space and 2nd kitchen equipped with granite countertops, an island with breakfast bar, Bosch dishwasher, Kitchen-aid warming drawer, Amana refrigerator/freezer combo and under counter ice maker. A half bath is located off the kitchen area. A spacious bonus room currently houses a ping pong table but would make a great exercise room. Completing the terrace level are 2 guest bedrooms, both with private bathrooms featuring tiled shower/bath combos.

The 2-story boathouse showcases one of the best views on Lake Burton. The boathouse is tucked away from main-body boat traffic providing a protected swimming area.

This home truly has it all! Once you see it you won’t be able to leave!

Great for large groups.

  • 4 of 5

I loved the property. The views of Lake Burton were amazing. The house could have used a little more attention to detail. Owner did not respond to my phone call or text during my stay.

Beautiful home and property

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully done and feels homey and comfortable. We had a family of 18 staying - accommodations ample, and plenty of room to spread out. Especially enjoyed the covered porch and huge fireplace. Thanks for opening your home -we would book it again!

5 Stars Are Not Enough!

  • 5 of 5

5 stars are just not enough to express this home. Everything about the home was exceptional. It was well equipped and so beautiful! I felt completely pampered. The view was amazing and I just don't think you can find a more beautiful spot.

I could go on and on but suffice it to say I was very pleased with my stay, and although short and sweet this time, I hope to be back for a longer visit in the future.

Great Lake Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Great house. We were 18 (10 kids) and had plenty of space. Kids can have their own area and activity room. Beautiful view. Rented a ski boat and a pontoon boat for a week at Anchorage Marine and had a great lake vacation. Kids had a activity packed week.

Beautiful is an understatement!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations in terms of gathering spaces, private spaces, and private bathroom access for each room. The house boasts one large kitchen on the main floor and one on the bottom floor with access to 3 large refrigerators with ample space for a week's worth of food for 20 people. The boathouse served as a spectacular gathering place to look up into the stars on clear nights. We rent every year for several families and this was the best we have rented thus far. The owners were extremely helpful and always available for questions we might have had.
