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. 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.

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!

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

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.

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!

HAPPY FAMILY!

David and Steph:
I want to take the time to thank you for the perfect week at your house! My family had a difficult time leaving after vacationing on the lake and exploring the surrounding area. Your home is beautiful, comfortable, and well-stocked for cooking and grilling. We actually preferred most days to stay and swim rather than going out hiking and a eating at a restaurant. In fact on our last day, we were in the lake from 10:00 in the morning until 9:00 at night!!! I am also glad we had the opportunity to meet both of you.

Hopefully, we will see you soon!

PERFECT FAMILY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
What a great getaway for our family! This lakefront property is an easy 2-hour drive from Atlanta and provides everything you need for a wonderful time! The home has been in the same family since being built in 1958, and they have thought of so many things to make their guests happy and comfortable (we had 5). The home has beautiful & relaxing views of Lake Burton . . . from the hammock, to the swing, to the deck, to the patio, to the dock (all beautifully lit at night to enjoy). We had access to kayaks, a canoe, & the grill, and we rented the owner's pontoon boat for rides all over the lake - including to dinner at the marina's restaurant. The owners live in nearby Clayton and therefore very accessible. The home was clean, updated, and furnished with everything we needed (we did a lot of cooking and the kitchen was well-equipped). We enjoyed meals out on the deck overlooking the lake (the gas & charcoal grills are there, as well as a refrigerator, plenty of seating, and easy access to the house). We had a wonderful time, made lots of great memories, and hope this will be the first of many visits to Shangra-La for our family!

WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
Shangri-La is amazing. The house has great access to the lake, so whether you want to spend your whole time on the water or just sit on the boathouse deck and enjoy it from afar, you will be happy. The beds are super comfortable, and the house comes with everything you could need. The best part is the Dyers. They made us feel like honored house guests and took care of everything we needed. Thank you for such an amazing weekend!

OH MY!

  • 5 of 5
This is an incredible place, I couldn’t have ask for anything more, the home is beautiful, convenient, clean and right on the water. The spot is quiet, serene, with clear water and beautiful views – I had a wonderful two week fall retreat. The pictures are a wonderful representation but can’t quite capture the essence of this amazing place.

VERY HAPPY

  • 5 of 5
On arrival the family immediately appreciated the very special environment of Shangri-La on Lake Burton! The family thoroughly enjoyed the house, boat house, swim area, kayaks, as well as the pontoon boat. All were very satisfied with our trip to the north Georgia mountains and the wonderful accommodations. Recommended local eateries were explored and very much enjoyed. David Dyer was always available to assist us in maximizing our experience in the area. Nearby Clayton had everything we needed during our stay. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to get away and relax. We all look forward to visiting the area again and hope to revisit Shrangri-La in the near future!

SUBLIME RELAXATION & FUN

Sublime Relaxation & Fun
  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd visit to this amazing property, and this visit was even better than the first. The boathouse deck is the perfect place to eat, read, nap, play, and watch stars at night. Having access to the kayaks, floats, fishing rods and pontoon boat is a huge benefit for families who don't want to rent or bring it all from home. The house is better stocked than any other home that we've rented, from soap and scrub pads to spices and paper towels. Just bring your groceries and you're ready to go. The beds are very comfortable and the home is super clean and obviously well loved and maintained. The special details that the owners provide their guests make one's stay even more enjoyable. It's also one of the few properties with a walkway and no stairs to the boathouse deck, a nice bonus for people with limited mobility or families who make countless trips back to the house. We look forward to our next stay at Shangri La!
