Overview

Lake Burton House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Enjoy this original '50's cottage and boathouse that have been completely renovated during the 2005-06 seasons. Shangri-La has over 550 feet of private lake front and situated on a 3 acre lot. Sit on the boathouse or lounge in the hammock and listen to the soothing sound of a gentle stream. Dive off the boathouse or take a relaxing swim beside the floating dock. Explore the lake with 4 kayaks or take a lazy conoe ride. Enjoy the 'nooks & crannies' of this magnificent clear water lake---this home has it all.

The house will sleep six comfortably and add two more on a queen size platform Aero bed provided. From the Master Bedroom take your morning coffee across the level 20 foot catwalk and watch the lake come to life from the boathouse sun deck. While there, enjoy your MP3 music through a four speaker Bose sound system. This is a recommended way to start your day on Lake Burton.

While the adults are enjoying the sun porch with lake views, the children can either swim off the dock, romp and play on 'the Lilly Pad' or watch TV & DVD's in the den---the swim dock has a 'special concrete walk down floor' that is a gradual entrance into the lake (perfect for toddlers.) The kitchen is fully equipped, you can cook and look at the lake here too. If you like to grill, use either/or Weber charcoal & the gas grill on the boathouse. This boathouse sun deck offers over 1200 square feet (one of the largest on Lake Burton)----perfect for entertaining, dining, sunning, etc. It comes fully equipped with refrigerator, ice maker, 30 feet of custom cabinets, and special twi-light custom lighting. In 2012, special high intensity LED underwater lighting (blue) has been installed around the boathouse...kids love to jump into the blue lagoon'!! At the end of the day, enjoy your own private outdoor hot & cold water shower (equipped with its own private changing area.) No need to leave the lake for indoor 'primping' -- this is lake burton!

The house is at the end of a two house private driveway (no road noise or dust at this location.) Additionally, it offers a generous amount of level parking (7+ vehicles) and only 20 feet from the water! Bring your power boats and jet skis--the boathouse will stow (1) one boat under cover and the docks will tie-off many additional boats water toys. This home is ready for fun, frolic, & lots of relaxation. Most of all, enjoy the new lifetime memories your family & friends will have--just like the last 55 years for its owners.

About David Dyer

Steph and I (David) have lived in Rabun County for over 18 years. We grew up together as children on Lake Burton - what a terrific place to meet your future bride! We are retired, but work part time with a therapeutic wilderness program for troubled teens. I do a bit of radio broadcasting for our Rabun County Wildcats (football & basketball.) We feel so fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful areas of our country. We look forward to meeting you and sharing this beautiful area with you and your family.

David Dyer purchased this house in 1958

Why David Dyer chose Lake Burton

How lucky for us....We didn't have to purchase our vacation home. Lake Burton is where Steph and I spent summers as children growing up. We were both teenagers and met on the lake. Steph's parents had a summer cabin on one end of Lake Burton -- my family had one on the other end. We sort of met in the middle.

What makes this house unique

There are many unique features about this lake cabin. First of all, this was one of the early cabins built on Lake Burton. Therefore, the location and size of the lot are nearly perfect--500 feet of lake front, private cove, and lots of level parking. The house and boat house were completely remodeled 4 years ago. Now you can enjoy the cozy cabin -- with all the ammenities for your comfort and pleasure!

Guestbook comments from the owner

David,



Thank you so much for sharing your lovely cottage with us. It was sooo comfortable! Even with the bad weather...we enjoyed sitting under the boathouse covered deck listening to the sounds of silence. Just perfect!



David, words can not express how special you made our trip--a true "Shangri-La experience". Your attention to every detail made our vacation most memorable---a true 5 star experience!

Everything we wanted and SO much more!

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband, teenage son, son's friend, and I) stayed here for a few days almost one week ago on a last minute get away. We cannot say enough wonderful things! Shangri-La is everything the pictures and descriptions say and SO much more. From the moment we stepped in the cabin, it felt like home and we knew we were in for a fantastic few days. Our only regret, of which we were fully aware, is that the water was still a bit too cold to enjoy. Nonetheless, we still took advantage of the serenity of the cabin, views from the boathouse, canoe and kayaks, downtown Clayton, as well a all the hiking opportunities in the area.

The owners made themselves available for any silly questions (we had a few) or concerns (there were non) we had. In addition, it was a pleasure to meet him in person and hear a little first hand history about the town, the cabin and its lovely owners.

Thank you so very much, David, for an amazing weekend and for sharing some time with us. We look forward to staying here again. Natalie C.

Excellent Weeking in Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

I was at Lake Burton for the weekend for the wedding and found Shangri-La for our 4 day weekend. We all loved the house so much we are already planning a summer trip. The owners were extremely accommodating, easy to communicate with, and helped contribute to a fun, stress-free weekend. I would recommend this house to anyone traveling to Lake Burton.

Beyond Shangri-La!!!

  • 5 of 5

My niece rented prior to her wedding in order for both families to get to know one another. Her partner's family has a family cabin on Lake Burton.

We were a blended family from ages 67 to a 2monther. This cabin was beyond all expectations! We wanted for nothing! Would recommend this rental without hesitation.

Thank you for making our stay wonderful!

Absolutely perfect in every single way!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four and our two Boston Terriers had the most amazing long weekend at your place! We loved everything about Shangri-La-the charming house, the location on the lake, the privacy, the Lily Pad, the pontoon, the kayaks, our welcome gifts....I could go on and on! We can't wait to go back, and we were all so sad about leaving this magical piece of paradise! Thank you, David and Steph, for being such wonderful hosts, and for sharing this treasure with us! It was a perfect getaway!!

Fantastic Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

I chose this location for a guys weekend for my brother and some of his friends as a weekend getaway and a place to just relax and hang out on the lake. This house was PERFECT, absolute 5 stars and deserves even more. Complimentary wine, embroidered towel, and a perfectly clean house and boathouse with plenty of room to just relax upon arrival.

Growing up with a lake house on Lake Burton we had always loved this lake. It had been 10 years or so since we I had been back but it was just as I remembered. We stayed in the boathouse pretty much the entire time jumping off into the lake, listening to music, and taking in the gorgeous view. I certainly recommend this lake house for anyone and everyone and will return for another trip in the future.

Great house, great vacation, and overall just a great experience. I highly recommend vacationing at Shangri-la!

Well named

  • 5 of 5

Cozy cottage directly on lake ..perfect location.Long view over water. House is on same level as boathouse roof..no climbing up from lake. Easy sunning on deck or separate floating deck.

Gracious host with personal service and arrival gifts. House is fully stocked with all conveniences. Waterfront gear is complete with swim stations and flotation toys and kayaks. OK for young children with supervision on slippery lake entry.

Close to hiking and golf..close to Laprade marina and good restaurant.
