Overview

North Georgia Mountains House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps up to 8 adults)

Beautiful Lake Seed is between Lake Rabun and Lake Burton. There is no marina on Seed which makes for a very quiet and peaceful environment. From the sun porch, enjoy watching the mist lift from the lake and rise to the mountains in the background. You have a choice of outdoor areas on both levels where you can sun, swing, eat or just relax and enjoy the scenery.

There are living areas on two levels so there will be no fights over the remote!! A beautiful well equipped kitchen with granite countertops will delight the cook in your group. It is a part of the great room so the cook will not be left out of the party. The entire house is beautifully furnished with antiques and 'found treasures' but very comfortable and family friendly.

A master bedroom with a queen bed and en suite bath and a king bedroom with bath in the hall are on the main floor. Downstairs is another queen bedroom with en suite bath. A new room has been added with a queen bed and two bunk beds. A Jack and Jill bath with 2 shower/tubs. 2 toilets and a double sink connects to the new room. There is a TV room between the two bedrooms which opens on to the downsstairs deck and the path to the lake.

When is the best time to visit Lake Seed? Anytime! Enjoy the swimming and boating activities in the summer; the native azaleas, rhododendron, mountain laurel are the attractions in the spring; the fall color seen from the sun porch in the fall is unsurpassed; and, the stillness, wood fires, and solitude of winter is the best time to relax and renew.

Wonderful hikes, beautiful waterfalls and views are available year round. So come see why we all love 'going to Seed'.

About Barbara Major

The house was purchased in 1998 when all three of my children lived in Atlanta, and I lived in Birmingham. We wanted a place to meet and wind down after the work week. Since then, all three have married, had children and moved from Atlanta, and I moved to NE Florida. We still get together at the lake , but not as often as we used to. For that reason, I decided to share our retreat with others via VRBO. It is is a special spot and now loved by my six grandchildren as well as our renters.

Why Barbara Major chose North Georgia Mountains

After looking at multiple homes on all of the Georgia Power lakes in Rabun County, we this house really stood out from the rest. Many lots in the area are very steep and docks are quite a hike from the house. Our dock is easily and quickly accessed,and the slope is gentle! This house has beautiful features like granite countertops throughout, modern appliances and all rooms are well appointed. In addition, we loved the size of the lake as there was no marina and moderate boat traffic. The house is in a small slough which is great for swimmers. From the house, the view of the lake is wonderful, and the large lot was left natural with large trees, rhododendron and mountain laurel. Sitting in the sunroom is like sitting in a tree house. We could not resist this special house, lot and location. It turned out to be even better than we thought!

Fantastic for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Large family space accommodating multi-generation gathering. Private space with bedrooms and each having own bathroom. Great kitchen and dining space. Loved the sun room overlooking the lake. Go in prepared to stay--long way to grocery. Only other concern was having to take away your own trash to county facility--glad we had tarp and boxes to load trash in our car. Overall fantastic place for any family gathering. We hope to visit again soon.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and so comfortable. It is more spacious than the pictures show. The lake was not super busy and this was Labor day weekend! We will definitely be renting this home again-the owners were wonderful to work with.

Fabulous location and setting

  • 5 of 5

Cousins and aunts/uncles thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend stay at Lake Seed. The setting is peaceful. The layout of the house perfect for our group. The highlight is the large comfy, shady area on the water. Thank you Barbara!

Fantastic Lake house

  • 5 of 5

The Lake Seed house was absolutely perfect. Set in the mountains, on the water and impeccably decorated. It is much larger than the photos show. We highly recommend this as an option for families.

Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great house for a cozy winter mountain getaway (love to see it in Spring, Summer and Fall). The lighting and view of Seed Lake was beautiful. The kitchen very well equipped. The fire place roared. And the nearby hikes into the woods and past creeks and waterfalls were rejuvenating. We loved the seclusion - 3.6 miles down a dirt/gravel road, though hard to find at night. We will be back!
