Lake Burton House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 6 Baths - (Sleeps 11-18)

See our awesome views of the lake and of mountains in three states. Pink sunsets melting behind the mountains are magnificent. So pretty that couples have their weddings on the dock at sunset! Perched on a peninsula in the main part of the lake, you can watch your children and friends tubing and skiing right in front of you. The dock is large enough for your boat or a rental boat to dock during your stay. Inside it has stunning all wood floors, walls, and vaulted ceilings crafted with hickory, red oak, black walnut and pine. You can see the lake and mountains from every room! MAIN HOUSE KITCHEN: The kitchen is state of the art with the newest stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops, with roomy dining for 12 or more. PENTHOUSE MASTER BEDROOM: Has its own private deck overlooking the lake activity, a king size canopy bed (with a pillow top mattress), and a steam shower and whirlpool tub in the Tuscan master bathroom.

Additional Room Information:

COUNTRY FRENCH BEDROOM: (Double bed) On the main floor, it has hand painted rustic furniture, high ceiling, and its own bathroom. 2nd MASTER BEDROOM: It has a king size bed with a pillow top mattress, a bathroom, a spectacular view the minute you wake up, and a beautiful stained glass window shining its bright colors into your room. It also includes its own balcony. BASEMENT: Downstairs is a perfect place for kids to play games and watch their own large screen TV. Filled with Native American artifacts it is often visited by adults as well. The kids dorm has a bunk bed, a pillow top twin bed and a bath. GUEST COTTAGE: On our lot we have preserved and renovated one of the original cottages built after the Burton Dam was finished in the early 1930s. Used as a guest cottage, it still has a working hand stacked stone fireplace and antique bedroom furniture (full size bed). Including a full kitchen and old fashioned tub, it has been lovingly decorated to keep its charm and cozy feel.

Amenities: You will want to relax on the wrap around porch with its hand made cypress rocking chairs and large lounge chairs for complete comfort while you read or snooze. Snoozing is also allowed in the hammock swinging next to the lake.

For those who want to do some office work (bah! humbug!) there is a study with a computer (includes broadband Internet access), a fabulous lake view, and its own full bathroom. A one person roll-away allows you to use the study as an extra bedroom.

For spectacular TV watching there are HDTVs in the great room, kid's room, master bedroom and the guest cottage.

The Story Behind “Kayc’s Kottages”......

Because of its phenomenal view and location, our point was one of the first lake lots built on after the Lake Burton Dam was finished in the late 1920’s. The first cottage was built in the early 30’s by an Atlanta developer. Some years later he built a second little cottage right next to the first one. This is now our Guest Cottage. Then in May 1976 he sold both of these small cottages to me, Kayc. I was 23 and I decided to use my savings towards lake property rather than buy a house or condominium. I had been to Lake Burton on a blind date and I fell in love with the lake.

I couldn’t have been more excited than the day I drove up to my first little piece of real estate, soon to be known as “Kayc’s Kottages”. The first cottage was getting so old it was called Critter Cottage because that’s where all the animals slept! So in 1984 I replaced the older cottage with the Main House with the glass prow front, but I kept the smaller cottage next to it to be the Guest Cottage. It is one of the few old small cottages left on the lake.

Then in 2007 my husband and I renovated the cottage and added to the Main House as you see it today. We added a penthouse master bedroom and master bath, a country French bedroom and bath, a large entrance foyer, and an all new kitchen and breakfast nook. We also recently added a rustic covered porch to the boathouse.

Kayc Bond purchased this house in 1976

Interesting Tid Bits about the Lake......

Lake Burton has over 1100 homes on it with 75% of the lots owned and leased out by Georgia Power. In the 1920’s Georgia Power bought the land and built the Burton Dam fed by the Tallulah River. Lake Burton is about 10 miles long. The city of Burton is underneath the 80 foot deep water basin in front of our lake house. From our house you can see mountains from three states: North Carolina’s Standing Indian Mountain, the Tennessee mountains and Georgia’s tallest mountain, Brass Town Bald.

The Lake Burton Country Club rests on top of one of the Lake Burton mountains overlooking its award winning golf course. It was built by the Ritz Carlton founder Bill Johnson, who originally had a Tennessee Walking Horse farm on that site.

People you may know with homes on Lake Burton include Alan Jackson, Sam Nunn, Vince Dooley, Fran Tarkenton and Nick Saban. Recently, Iron Chef Winner and Atlanta restaurateur, Kevin Rathbun, rented our place to cook for a group of his friends. And the world renowned Cirque Du Soleil performers spent their Christmas at our place last year!

For those that know the 1972 film Deliverance, starring Burt Reynolds and Jon Voight, scenes were filmed along the Tallulah River where it feeds into Lake Burton. Also filmed on Burton was Four Seasons starring Alan Alda and Carol Burnett. And more recently, we met Clint Eastwood and Justin Timberlake when they were at the lake for scenes in Trouble With The Curve.

Exceeded our expectations!

We saw the pictures online and knew it was going to be a beautiful home, but were blown away once we arrived! There was plenty of space for everyone and a huge great room for all of us to cook and eat together! The spacious wrap around deck allowed us to enjoy the beautiful weather overlooking the panoramic view of the lake. Their point is most ideal on the lake. The master suite, bathroom and balcony were truly breathtaking. The owners were a pleasure to work with and helped us meet every request we had! We will be back again!

Thank you for letting us use your place for our wedding. Everyone loved it, and my girlfriend is thinking about using it for her 25th wedding vow renewals. The view we had when we woke up and looked out the picture window was incredible! Thank you again.

We had an amazing stay. We found the home beautiful and in an excellent location. Easy to travel to Clayton and by boat to Laprades. We rented a pontoon and brought 4 jet skis which all comfortably fit at the floating dock with room to spare for the kids to swim. Plenty of space for all 4 adults and 9 teenagers. Great kitchen. We cooked meals every night as no one wanted to leave for dinner. Beautiful sunsets and wonderful views. Owner is very responsive and easy to work with. Looking forward to future stays!

You will relish the quiet moments in front of the fireplace, drinks on the deck at sunset, counting the stars at night on the dock, and drinking coffee in the morning on the penthouse balcony. What could be better?!
