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.

About Parks Stewart

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

Why Parks Stewart chose Lake Burton

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.

What makes this house unique

Nobody has the view and location we do.

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here last summer with my family. It was a wonderful trip that everyone enjoyed. The house was just as advertised and the views were even better. My children had a great time fishing, boating, swimming, and skiing! What a perfect place to relax! The Stewarts were very responsive and helpful with questions. We hope to be back soon. Thank you for sharing your home!

KEPT our entire Security Deposit

  • 1 of 5
Well I didn't want to write a negative review because these are our neighbors on Seed Lake. But since they've kept our ENTIRE deposit and will not respond to my emails, I feel I must warn potential renters.

We rented this house and one other on the lake for a family reunion 4th of July week. The other owners (Seal Creek), were lovely to deal with and refunded my entire deposit within days. The owner at THIS property, called me on day three of my family's vacation and in an angry voice, accused me of running a "camp" out of her house and threatened to keep my security deposit if I had more than 8 sleeping in the house. The VRBO page says the house is "good up to 14 people". Seven adults, two children and one infant were staying in the house. I assured her it was just my family, and we all had matching T-shirts designed by my daughter: "Camp Nacoochee". We had hung a sign out front so out-of-town family knew where to arrive. She also accused us of "burning her grass" when in fact, we had pulled stones from the broken sea-wall out of the lake and WITH HER HUSBAND'S CONSENT, built a make-shift bonfire pit. We did NOT burn her grass. After our vacation, the owner took quite a long time to reply to our request of a security deposit refund. We eventually heard that she had decided to keep it because of a missing pillow sham, and broken (old) fireplace tools. Folks please know, we are Lake Seed homeowners and would never vandalize or steal from ANYONE, let alone our neighbors.
PRO's: Great location. We LOVE Lake Seed.
CON's: Damaged Sea Wall (has been this way for over a year now) making for a dangerous swimming area, dangerous dead tree looms over entrance area, prolific poison ivy, slippery when wet decking due to years of mold and mildew, slippery and loose patio stones near grilling area, no food-prep table for the grill area, beat up outdoor and screened porch seating, large hole in the interior wall next to the fireplace, broken kitchen cabinet, cabinets cluttered with old food, rusty cookware, dirty interior doors and walls, sliding glass door in Master Bedroom inoperable. Why go on...you get it. Oh, and just plan on washing all the bedding as soon as you arrive (or bring your own). We found it dusty and disgusting. This place hasn't been updated or refreshed in YEARS. And looks like we're not the only renters whose security deposit wasn't returned. Just fold it into your rental cost so you won't be disappointed and you're good to go!

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

  • 4 of 5
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

  • 4 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!!!
