Overview

Lake Burton House Rental Photos and Description

Escape to relaxation at scenic Lake Burton. Unwind in this comfortable home that is great for both families and couples. The views can’t be beat from Creakmore – situated on the main body of the lake and facing Charlie Mountain. To the south, you can make out Burton Dam, and to the north, you can see the low-rising mountains of North Carolina. Enjoy the views from the elevated deck at the house or from the dock of the boathouse.

This three bedroom, two bath house is ideal for families or couples looking to slow down for a bit. It is easy to sleep late in either the master bedroom on the main floor or in the downstairs guest bedroom. The upstairs sleeping loft can accommodate four.

The comfortable living room, cooled by a large ceiling fan, features a stone fireplace and a recently upgraded audio-video system for those times when you want to watch a movie, catch a game, or listen to some music. DirecTV, Netflix, Roku and a blu ray player are available for watching on the 46” flat screen, and you can wirelessly connect your tablet or iPod to listen to your music both in the house and on the dock. You can stay connected with wi-fi throughout the house and down at the dock and boathouse.

The galley kitchen features a new, quite-running dishwasher, microwave, and a full size refrigerator. A door to the parking area makes unloading groceries a snap.

Downstairs features a guest bedroom with its own full bathroom, another living room with a flat screen tv and dvd player, and a laundry room with another full size refrigerator.

Sets of stairs connect the downstairs to both the floating dock and the boathouse and its stationary dock. Bring your own or rent a boat from a local marina for skiing, tubing, wake-boarding or just cruising the lake. There is plenty of room on the stationary dock for getting sun. A refrigerator in the boathouse means that cold drinks are always close by.

If you are interested in hiking, Tallulah Gorge State Park and the lake’s own Hemlock Falls are just two of the numerous options available to you. There are also a number of dining options on the lake as well as in the nearby towns of Clayton and Helen.

When your visit is over, we’re sure you’ll already want to start planning your next visit to Lake Burton!

Cozy weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit at Creakmore. I can't imagine a cozier, more welcoming cabin on Lake Burton. It was evident that this place is well loved by a wonderful family. The location was perfect, right on the lake and close to La Prades Marina. The cabin had everything we needed to enjoy our stay - plenty of space, comfy beds, a grill, board games, and they were even kind enough to let us take the canoe out around the lake. The owners were very responsive and attentive, ensuring we had everything we needed.

Overall, we had an amazing weekend. We definitely plan on staying at Creakmore for our next visit to Lake Burton.

Cool Comfort at Creakmore

  • 5 of 5

Creakmore is a quaint, darling 3-level cabin right on Lake Burton. Our family loved swimming from the dock and canoeing in Lake Burton. LaPrade's Marina is close, and renting a pontoon boat was the best day we spent on the lake. The home has two bedrooms with queen beds and a loft area with four twins. Above that, there is another loft area accessible by a rope ladder with a double bed, for the adventurous soul. There is plenty of room for 10-12 to be comfortable. We had 8 and didn't feel cramped. Two full bathrooms on the main and lower levels met our needs.

The nights were cool and comfortable. There is no air conditioning, so we were worried, but we had to break out blankets while relaxing in the living area. It was certainly cool enough in July.

Be advised that the house is not on a level lot. The driveway is sloped downward. There is parking for two vehicles at the bottom near the main entry. There is additional parking near the top for the faint-of-heart in negotiating a steep incline.

In all, our family enjoyed a relaxing, calm vacation filled with day trips to other mountain towns and enjoying all Lake a Burton had to offer. We look forward to the next time we plan to visit the North Georgia mountains.

Perfect Mountain Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

A great family getaway! We enjoyed our time relaxing on the cool shady porches and in the sun on the docks. The accommodations were great and close to LaPrads where we enjoyed a great meal. The owners were very helpful and attentive.
