About the property

"This house ‘Lives for the Lake,’” 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 9) “

Located on a rare, FLAT, newly FENCED-in lakefront lot on Lake Rabun, “Little Lakemont” is a two-story, family-owned home in the scenic Northeast Georgia Mountains. Bring your bathing suits and a carefree attitude to this quiet section of the lake, where your only task is to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds.

This immaculate home, located less than two hours north of Atlanta, sleeps up to 9 guests, ideal for a family vacation, weekend getaway or a girls-only escape. Little Lakemont is tastefully and comfortably furnished, with an ability to accommodate a crowd, if needed, while still offering cozy privacy to its treasured guests.

Easily accessible year-round via paved Lake Rabun Road (trust us, this is a perk!), Little Lakemont has ample parking and no daunting flights of stairs to the house or to the lake (perk! perk! perk!). Our large, flat fenced-in back lawn is perfect for running around playing tag, roasting marshmallows in the in-ground fire-pit or squaring off in a game of Giant Jenga, Horeshoes or Corn Hole (all provided!), all under the shade of the Sycamore trees that border the lake. Relax on the screened-in back porch – where we bet you’ll spend the majority of your time – with unobstructed views of Lake Rabun and your guests enjoying the peaceful calm of “The Narrows” and its no-wake zone, making swimming and water recreation worry-free. Explore the water via our 3-person, 17-foot canoe; 1-person, 15-foot kayak; and 1-person kid’s kayak; or stay grounded and make use of our charcoal grill and lounge chairs.

Our covered boathouse offers sunbathing or relaxing in the shade, and Little Lakemont allows you to bring your own boat and tie up at our dock. Or talk to Michael at Lake Rabun Boat Rentals (706-782-4438) or Hall's Boat House (706-782-4981) to rent a boat or jet ski. (Just be mindful of the no-wake zone in The Narrows, and be sure to wave as friendly “neighbors” pass by in their boats of choice as Southern Hospitality is on full display here at Lake Rabun).

As you enter Little Lakemont through the front door, you’re welcomed immediately by the open kitchen and dining area that overlooks the family room. Cook (or, simply eat) to your heart’s content with all the pots, pans, plates and utensils one could need; and for the more adventurous, make use of our ice-cream machine, slow-cooker or blender. The kitchen features a gas-burning oven and stove, dishwasher and garbage disposal.

If by chance you aren’t taking your meals on the six-seat dining table on our screened-in porch (which features our second charcoal grill), our indoor dining table seats eight (five chairs and one bench) for casual meals. We also have a restaurant-style high chair available for your use, if needed.

The family room is cozy and inviting with a new couch (which folds out to a full-sized bed) and new swivel rockers, comfy upholstered chairs, all of which are working hard to divide their time between the entertainment center (stocked with a 43-inch TV, books, movies and board games) and the real star of the show, a floor-to-vaulted-ceiling stone fireplace.

The two guest bedrooms are also located downstairs. One features a pillow-top queen bed and ceiling fan, and the other – in true Lake Rabun fashion – bunk beds with easy and fun access to the top bunk via the built in steps/drawers (BONUS: the bunk room has a giant Connect Four game mounted to the wall - so much fun for kids and kids at heart!). Both bedrooms have plenty of closet space and storage, and the comfy beds are nicely appointed with new, crisp linens and comforters. These bedrooms share the immaculate main-floor bathroom, which features a new vanity, large (stocked) linen closet and shower/tub.

If a quick load of laundry is on your agenda, a washer/dryer combo is conveniently located on the main floor near the bathroom.

The master suite, with a king-sized bed ceiling fan and spacious bathroom, is located on the second floor, offering quiet seclusion from the rest of the home. If you’re tempted to watch television, the cleanly appointed master bedroom features one of the two TVs in Little Lakemont, housed in the armoire. Just outside the master is a sunny reading loft, where an overstuffed leather chair and ottoman invite you to settle in and enjoy a good book (or take a nap) with views of Lake Rabun and the boathouse just below.

Also on the top floor is a small, gabled bedroom with a single bed, perfect for a child (or an adult who would prefer the privacy of his/her own room versus the pull-out sofa in the living room!). There’s plenty of space in this bedroom for a pack-and-play (not provided) for the littlest ones.

There will be no need to leave Little Lakemont once you arrive, but there’s plenty of exploring at your fingertips, should you feel compelled to wander. Enjoy Angel Falls (you can walk from our driveway to the trailhead), Minnehaha Falls (a short drive to the trailhead), Tallulah Gorge and Black Rock Mountain State Parks, all offering hiking trails and pristine views. Hall’s Marina, Lake Rabun Inn and Restaurant and Louie’s on the Lake are a short drive away; historic Lakemont beckons with its quaint shopping area, art and cafés; and plenty of creature comforts are available in the nearest city – Clayton, Georgia – as well as antique shops and family-owned restaurants.

We consider Little Lakemont our favorite place on Earth, and we respectfully offer its charm and hospitality as you plan your next mountain retreat.

About Billy Schroder

We are The Schroders! Billy's family has been enjoying Lake Rabun since the 1940s, and we are blessed to now have our own little piece of paradise to share with our daughter, Haly Jean. And you!

Billy Schroder purchased this house in 2016

Why Billy Schroder chose Lakemont

It's not often you find a house on Lake Rabun on a flat lot, as many are perched on the side of a mountain. Couple this unique attribute with the house having direct access from Lake Rabun Road and being in a quiet section of the lake where we feel comfortable with our little girl learning to swim, and buying this house (what we call Little Lakemont) was the easiest and best decision we ever made.

What makes this house unique

We recently had the backyard fenced in. This has proved a HUGE convenience while our daughter plays outside.

Little Lakemont was truly a perfect place for us! We spent most of our time on the lovely Boathouse enjoying the perfect view and quiet cove. Couldn't have been a better location for our kids. Everything was clean inside and very accommodating!

Awesome House on Lake Rabun

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time at Little Lakemont. This house is right on the lake with a beautiful boathouse. The house was beautiful on the inside and had everything we needed. Our kids (9 and 6), enjoyed this trip very much. They really loved the kayaks that were provided with the rental. We enjoyed all of the hiking around the house and even rented a pontoon boat from Michael at Bear Gap Outfitters. This was our first time renting a boat and Michael made it so easy. He showed us everything we needed to know and it turned out to be very easy- entire family enjoyed exploring Lake Rabun.

We would stay at this house again, no doubt about it.

Owner's Response: Mike, That makes us so happy to hear you had a wonderful time! Lake Rabun is the best. We can't wait to get up there again in a couple of weeks. Our little girl loves the kayaks, as well. Such a great way to explore the upper regions of the lake. We hope to see you again. Best regards, Billy and Laura

Perfect property for us!

This was the perfect location for our three generation vacation. There was plenty to do for all ages. The house was nicely furnished, and Mr. Billy was very informative and helpful. We would love to come back in the future. This is the nicest property on Lake Rabun!

Perfect lake home

  • 5 of 5

Excited and relaxed from the moment we pulled up to the house and lake. Proximity to the water and dock from the house and screened in porch is better one can expect. Rarely do vacation homes exceed our expectations, Little Lkemont did right off the bat. Despite some stormy weather we all had a great time. Much thanks to the hosts - they've done a great job with the home, its amenities and information up front.

Owner's Response: Tom, Laura and I are so happy that you and your family had such a wonderful time! It sounds like the trip was a success to introduce them to the North Georgia Mountains. Thank you for staying with us, and Little Lakemont hopes to see you again if you are back down this way. Best regards, Billy and Laura
