We are directly across from High Harbor Camp on the “quiet end” of the lake.
Accommodations: 4 Bedrooms/4 ½ Baths - A new waterfront cabin (construction finished in 2012) sited on a large point offering the utmost in privacy.
The cabin has four bedrooms upstairs each with its own private bath. Downstairs there is a queen size hide-a-bed sofa and half bath. Linens furnished.
A Summer week on the lake, leaf watching in the fall, reading in winter, fishing, being across from High Harbor during your child's stay or family gathering, time spent here is very special.
We have been on the lake since the early 50’s and our original cabin (heartstring) was a “true” cabin. So with eyes shut…we lovingly brought it down and built a new one suitable for year round living and today’s lifestyle.
No place on Lake Burton offers more privacy. Our “point” offers a full 180 degree view of the lake, safe swimming, deep water and ultimate privacy.
You will rarely need A/C but we have state of the art zoned heating and air if you do. We took full advantage of our location and built with tall windows that not only offer terrific lake views from all main level windows but, let that wonderful Rabun County mountain air flow through the house.
Our kitchen is large, fully equipped and a joy to cook in. There are deep limestone counters for prep or buffet, custom cabinetry and a walk-in pantry. We installed a downdraft Jenn-Aire oven with a window directly above so you can watch the lake and mountains while you prepare your favorite meal. Directly off the kitchen is a “cooking porch” equipped with both charcoal and gas Weber grills.
On the lake level, only steps from the dock, is a large flagstone patio with a stone exterior fireplace. It is a favorite place to relax, dine or cozy up to a fire on a cool evening.
We have a double boathouse with an extra slip if you bring your boat or rent from one of the Marinas. Note: Our boathouse is…well, it’s a boathouse. It does not have a top deck. Our patio serves the purpose of a boathouse deck but keeps you under the shade of great white oaks, right by the cabin and only steps to the dock. While many cabins spend the afternoon in the shade, our Southern exposure keeps us in sun during Summer, even late in the afternoon.
For your use, we have a canoe, a kayak, a wake board, water skis, tubes, lifejackets and other water toys available.
We do not allow Jet Skis.
There is a laundry area, den, game room with pub table, flagstone patio with exterior fireplace.
We have wonderful neighbors on each side and ask you treat our home and our neighbors as if they were your own.

About Scott Callaway
This is the view from one of three porches.
We have been on the lake since the early 50’s. Lake Burton and Rabun County feels like home.
Scott Callaway purchased this house in 1955
Why Scott Callaway chose Lake Burton
When our parents fell in love with this lot it was remote, only accessible by boat and had the feel of being on a lost island. Vickers Road had not been 'cut' from HWY76 and the dirt road access 'Popcorn Road' came to a dead end at the top of our drive...it was also often impassible in all but a 4 wheel drive.
What makes this house unique
This is the 'quiet' end of the lake and or point offers complete privacy...400 feet of shoreline!
