Comfortable and relaxing craftsman-style home just a few steps from the water on pristine Lake Burton. You can see the lake from every room in the house.

Spectacular mountain views are just outside the cove and boat rentals are just ten minutes away. Fish right off the dock or fly fish on the Soque River only 15 minutes away.

The house has an open floor plan with tongue and groove walls in the main living areas. The kitchen is fully furnished and the dining room table can easily seat 12. Two excellent restaurants are less than a mile away and both are within walking distance. In the evenings, enjoy a glass of wine on the outdoor patio with fireplace and satellite radio. All bedrooms are spacious and have new, ultra-comfortable, top-of-the-line mattresses and bedding.

Why Mike Phelan chose Northeast Mountains

Lake Burton is only an hour and a half from our primary residence but it feels like you are a thousand miles away. It is relaxing, peaceful and serene. Lake Burton is clean and the Appalachian Mountains are a beautiful northern backdrop. The local residents are welcoming and friendly.

What makes this house unique

Our home is close to the water with a gorgeous view and only 7 steps to the dock. Two excellent restaurants are within walking distance and LaPrades Marina is 10 minutes by boat or car. Our covered porch has a fireplace and the bedding is top of the line. Our home is where memories are the reviews!

This beautiful Lake Burton house is truly paradise. The house is beautiful, beds very comfortable, well stocked kitchen and plenty of room for our family of 6 adults and 4 children. The owners are wonderful to work with and we will definitely be back next summer.

Our second Thanksgiving at Lake Burton

  • 5 of 5

Again, wonderful home for our growing extended family. Even caught a 16" wide mouth bass this year, right off the dock. It was so nice to be at a familiar place.

Hard to describe how perfect it was!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our experience. The Phelan's home is set up perfectly for being able to accommodate multiple generations and have both kid and adult space. We had kids ranging from age 7 to 18 and they ALL found something to keep them entertained. Having the option to send all the kids downstairs to play video games or watch movies while the adults sat upstairs was great. Having three levels was so nice for being able to put grandma and the girls on the 3rd floor, separate from the loud boys on the bottom level. While mom & dad had the main floor all to themselves. Perfect!

The back patio was a beautiful, quiet place to have coffee in the morning. Wish it had been cool enough for a fire in that awesome fireplace! The boat house and dock were set up perfectly for our boat and jet skis, the kids all had a blast jumping from the boat house and fishing on the docks. The cove is so quiet and peaceful in a no-wake zone, I never felt worried that anyone was going to get run over.

The house is in pristine condition, equipped with pretty much anything you could ever ask for. I've never seen so many beach towels in one place haha!!

The Phelans make you feel like you're old friends, with the warmest, kindest welcome. I just cannot say enough good things about this home...we would absolutely stay here without hesitation again!!

Thanksgiving weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 15 spent 4 wonderful days at Lake Burton. We had more than enough space. The kitchen is a dream and has everything you need. The beds are super comfy, the decor makes it feel like home. Hope to rent again in the summer.

Family get together.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the Phelan's Lake Burton home. The house is set up so wonderfully that each bedroom has a lot of privacy. The kitchen is the best equipped that I have ever seen and the large pantry was a huge help. There is also a lot of parking space which is an added bonus.

The lakeside area is wonderful for children and adults alike. The diving board and water trampoline were big hits with everyone.

We are certain that anyone who has the opportunity to stay in this wonderful home will thoroughly enjoy their stay.

Surprise Birthday party success!!

  • 5 of 5

Mike (the owner) was beyond amazing! We were planning a surprise birthday party for my wife and we needed special arrangements and handling to get all the “pieces of the puzzle,” in place to pull it off. It went off without a hitch. This only address the special treatment we received from the owners, but that cannot do justice to the “special home,” they provided. Their home is simply amazing and spectacular! All the guests were blown away by the set up and `provisioning. I cannot imagine a better place to stay and we are already looking for excuses to rent again. I would recommend this beautiful home to anyone wanting to get away and stay at a relaxing, beautiful, retreat. You will not be disappointed!!!
