LAKEFRONT PROPERTY WITH BOATHOUSE

Lake Burton House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms (Sleeps 10) + Loft + Den, 2 Baths

This house sits right on the lake and has shallow water for kids to swim in.

There are two good size bedrooms, a master upstairs that opens to a balcony and one on the main. The master has a queen bed, and the main has two twins that can be brought together or kept separate and a studio bed.

There are two smaller bedrooms with bunk beds that work especially well for kids, and the loft has a set of bunk beds and two long couches. If you count the den couch, you're good for 14 people, but we strongly urge people to keep it to a maximum of 10. 14 parents/kids/dogs will be a little chaotic like they would in any house. If you're of the parents/kids/dogs variety, I recommend keeping it to around 8 or so or you'll be glad Mrs. Brooks' General Store has a beer/wine license.)

There is a 9' x 16' boat slip in the boathouse, and we're just 200 yards down the lake from the boat ramp.

We have a decent assortment of pair and slalom skis and tube to pull behind your boat, and a pretty good array and sizes of personal floatation devices.

There're some cane poles for fishing, and those work well for kids (Mrs. Brooks sells all the worms and crickets you'd ever want for bait).

There is Wi-Fi, a 32 inch HD TV, and Blu-Ray DVD connected to Wi-Fi for Netflix, but currently no satellite TV. (I'm thankful for a break from the TV.) It accepts X Box, PlayStation, Wii, etc.

My family has owned this lakehouse since I was in first grade, and I have too many memories here to list. The fish caught, learning to ski, teaching people to ski, cooking out, the banter of other house across the lake in the evening, waiting in line with UGA Head Football Coach Vince Dooley for our names to be called at LaPrade's (they didn't care who you were; you waited until your turn to go in), shooting off fireworks....

My own son now cherishes every trip we make there.

Parks Stewart purchased this house in 1970

We're on the lake side of the paved road, so we're very accessible. Since there's an open slip in the boathouse and a nearby boat ramp it's easy to bring your own boat.

Seed Lake is not a turbulent lake like Lanier. It's small enough that it's not total confusion. If you have friends on Burton or Rabun you're just a quick car ride away.

Nobody has the view and location we do.

We had a great week, caught plenty of fish. The lake house was very much as advertised, great location on the lake and with the fall colors, even better. We are talking about coming back next summer.

Great Time

We very much enjoyed the rental house on Seed Lake. The views of the lake and mountains were awesome! The house size was more than adequate for our small family of three – maybe too large! :-) My daughter enjoyed her first time fishing from the back yard – even though the water was too shallow and she didn't catch anything. Thanks for the fishing poles stored in the boathouse!

I have only one issue. The $250 damage deposit was supposed to be refunded - if there was no damage. I paid separately to replace the key I lost – but I am still waiting for the refund to appear in my checking account! :-(

Fun at Lake Seed

I would recommend this house to anyone who would like to bring their children and grandchildren. We spent the week with our family and enjoyed everyday we were their. The grandchildren had fun swimming in the lake, riding the paddle boards and just hanging out with their cousins. We enjoyed watching them and just rocking on the porch. The view is wonderful. We hope to go back soon.

Stress relief at Seed Lake

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Seed Lake. The house is very comfortable and has everything you need. Just sitting on the screened in porch, watching boats go by and reading a good book - you could just feel the stress of life lift. We are really looking forward to returning in the fall. So happy we found this house!! Working with the Stewart's could not have been any easier - I feel like we are old friends. Thank you so much!!!

Charming House and Great Location

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Our family getaway on Seed Lake was a nice and relaxing time. The house is easy to find, clean, cozy, and contains everything you need for those few days away from the city. We loved the loft area, the fireplace, and the stone wall was so beautiful. There was a screened porch with a very large table and a couple rocking chairs. Enough seating for everyone. The master bedroom has a queen bed, and a walk-out patio, the other bedrooms (and loft) all have twin beds. The house is older but has lots of charm. If you are looking for luxury, you may not find it here, but the location is great, the house is right on the lake (you can't get any closer) and the boat house is great for fishing. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, even spices in the spice racks! There was no air conditioning, but with the ceiling fans and the house exhaust fan, we were fine, the weather wasn't too hot for July since it's in the mountains. If you like to fish or if you have a boat, you will be all set.

Some Pros:
Pictures are exactly as seen in the house.
Property was very clean and the "atmosphere" was friendly.
Well stocked kitchen with utensils, pots and pans, small appliances, even plastic wrap and baggies.
Owner was quick to respond to voice mail.
House is very homey and inviting, and has a lived-in feel, like you're visiting a relative's house.
Boat house is great for shady fishing (even cane poles and a small tackle box are available).

Some Cons:
Some beds were not as comfortable as desired and showed age.
Property is in mild need of aesthetic repairs (peeling paint, small holes in porch screens, etc.)
Don't run the dishwasher until AFTER you take a shower!
Could use extra (more) towels, as there was no washer/dryer.
Sliding screen doors are difficult to slide, and the bedroom one was awful.

Overall: Would stay here again, and would recommend to friends and family. Great value for the price.
