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 and 1-person, 15-foot kayak, or stay grounded and make use of our charcoal grill and lounge chairs.

Our covered boathouse allows for 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 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 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 pedestal sink, 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 an attached bath and king-sized bed, 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 room 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 to you 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.

The house was incredible, as well as all that was supplied (indoor and outdoor entertainment).

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad we stayed here! It was the perfect setting, a beautiful boathouse on the lake and a great indoor and outdoor space for entertaining. All of the extras that were included were awesome! The canoe, kayak, corn hole amd other fun games that the home includes gave us all an excellent weekend with family and friends. We were using the home to get prepared for my wedding because I was getting married close by, upon arrival there was a bottle of champagne and 2 glasses waiting. They went above and beyond - our wedding and all of the weekend activities were perfect. I highly recommend staying here!

Beautiful Lake Front Property

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely stunning property. We enjoyed everything about it. A bonus that I did not realize before we arrived is that they had a fenced in yard that was wonderful for the young children with us. The owners were extremely communicative and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again!

Lovely, relaxing stay - everything was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Little Lakemont was just wonderful. The owners thought of everything. We really felt at home. The house was immaculate and definitely set up for family and lake living. We fit all six kids with no problems. The fenced yard was a huge advantage for us as we needed to watch our little one around the water. It gave us great peace of mind. Thanks for a great place to spend our vacation!

Owner's Response: Amy, It's great to hear you and your family had such a wonderful time! We had that fence installed at the start of summer and it's brought us so much comfort with our own little one playing in the yard. We'll see you next year! Billy

Little Lakemont

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and property. House was very clean and well-kept. Comfortably fit our 8 guests. Screened in porch was great for dining at night and coffee in the morning. The Lake Rabun Road access is fantastic just as the listing states. The flat property is such a plus compared to some of the properties with 1,000 steps (or so it seems) down to the lake. Very close to the Rabun Grocery too. Owner was responsive throughout the process.

Owner's Response: Laura and I are so happy y'all had such a great time! The flat yard was a monster selling point for us when we bought the house. It's so nice to just stroll out to the dock. We look forward to seeing you next year!

We loved our time at Little Lakemont!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at Little Lakemont! We really enjoyed sitting on the boat house watching the sun set, playing corn hole, horse shoes, and generally relaxing in a beautiful setting. The house was great and well equipped. We hope to rent it again soon!
