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!

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!
