About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Enchantment!

Our season is just beginning and we're excited to welcome our new season of guests!

We are so pleased you are considering our cabin for your vacation rental. It is a very special place we think you'll always remember.

Camp High Harbour is just a short drive away and offers parents dropping off or visiting their children a wonderful cabin in the woods setting close by.

We call the house ENCHANTMENT...for it is a place of wonder and magic.

Soaring two story windows provide unforgettable lake and mountain views and each day brings a mystery of constantly changing vistas... haunting mists rise from the lake, crystal clear skies light each mountain ridge, and bears and deer have all been seen here.

The house is a true (three story) log cabin with extraordinary views from every level and furnished so each and every piece would belong to the house. From the huge four poster Aspen bed made in Colorado for the 'Gone Fishin' room to the handmade switchplates done by a potter to a dining fixture of twigs and crystals that make you think of lights in the is all as if it was always there, part of the land and the mountains.

The Great Room with its soaring two story windows has a floor to ceiling stacked stone fireplace (and yes it's woodburning). A comfortable leather sectional with a chaise faces both the fireplace and a 46' HDTV with DirecTV satellite reception. A special Antler mirror above the fireplace, stunning Birch branch accents, and a spectacular cowhide chair all compliment this special setting.

The Master bedroom with its own master bath is on the main level and has a Queen bed. The upstairs' bedrooms all have Queen beds and each has a flat screen TV with Satellite reception. You'll wonder at how spacious the bedrooms are.

The kitchen is very large, fully equipped, and offers new stainless steel Samsung appliances as well as a separate beverage cooler (New Kitchen photos coming).

For your convenience, the cabin has wireless internet.

You'll also love the massive deck on the view side of the house. A huge outdoor table for eight lets you dine in the tall trees that surround it with a view that will take your breath away. And when night falls, the stars are as bright as diamonds. Just lean back and star gaze in a sparkling hot tub set in a private alcove on the deck (magnificent trees all around).

Rather not have the sun, there are two covered areas on the deck with an outdoor ceiling fan to keep you cool and comfortable...And don't forget your 'grillin' hat. There's a large outdoor gas grill. For lazy days when you just want to stay put, sit awhile on the front porch in one of the comfortable rocking chairs. Nature's serenade will astonish you.

The setting is private and secluded on 3.2 acres adjacent to the USFS. The National Forest and hiking are virtually just outside the cabin. (Note: For those interested in hiking on the Appalachian Trail, it's just minutes down the road).

The cabin has plenty of parking, and a paved driveway. Also, while the property is secluded, it is only a short distance to the town of Clayton and the wonderful stores and restaurants nearby.

An amazing waterfall trail is about 10 to 15 minutes away, across from Moccasin Creek State Park on 197. (Stop in at the Ranger office in the Park for more information on this and other trails. Canoes are also available for rent there).

A little further down on 197 is La Prade's Marina. Go tubing or rent a pontoon boat! You'll also enjoy the casual elegance of the indoor/outdoor dining at The Chophouse restaurant at LaPrade's. It's reasonably priced, with a lovely view of Lake Burton and good food.

Also just minutes away from our cabin is The Waterfall Club. Kingwood Golf Course, a public course, is about 20 minutes away.

Here are some local dining tips: Try the Dillard House for one of their amazing dinners... It is a unique

southern experience that draws diners from three states.

For special dining, you'll love the wonderful ambiance, setting, and farm to table food at Clayton's award winning "Fortify" restaurant. For more casual dining try Fortify's sister restaurant, Fortify PI right next door. The wood fired brick oven pizza there is amazing. The Farmhouse Restaurant at Persimmon Creek is also very special with

lovely farm to table dining.

There is a 3 Night Minimum for Holidays and a 7 Night Minimum for Columbus Day week in (Leaf Season).

We look forward to having you stay at Enchantment.

Property is absolutely beautiful and the pictures of the lake view do not do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Enchantment. The house is stunning and very nicely maintained. From the master bedroom downstairs, you can hear everything from the room upstairs so just know that depending on who stays up there (we had teenage girls) it could be quite noisy. Also, it would be great to have directional signs on the gravel road leading up to the house. For us it was our first time staying here and we weren't sure we were going in the right direction because the road isn't on GPS. Having said that, we emailed the owners and they called us back quite quickly! Lastly, it would be so awesome to have an outdoor fire pit to be able to sit outside, enjoy the beautiful view of the lake, and roast s'mores.

We loved the hot tub and enjoyed it pretty much every day we were there! We also used the grill several nights so having that is great. This is an awesome VRBO and I would highly recommend it to others who are looking for something in this area!

Lovely cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a short visit but the cabin was exactly as advertised. The location is deep in the woods and perfectly located for a view of the lake. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need and the bedrooms are fun to explore -- the owners have paid close attention to details in each room.

We had 3 couples and there was plenty of room for everyone. We only wished it had not rained so much so we could have enjoyed the outside deck more.

Great getaway at Lake Burton

  • 5 of 5

This is a great getaway. Very peaceful, great views of Lake Burton and everything you need. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable and the deck and hot tub are hard to beat. We rented a boat on the lake, hiked in Cashiers and locally and spent an evening in Clayton. All convenient to the house.

Lovely Home with a Beautiful View - Convenient Location for Exploring

  • 5 of 5

This home provides a peaceful get-away with lovely views of Lake Burton from the mountain above. The location was within 15 minutes of the town of Clayton which has much to offer in the way of shopping and dining, hiking trails to waterfalls including Slippery Rock where adults and kids alike can slide down the falls into a refreshing pool of water below and LaPrade's Marina where you can rent a boat to get out on the lake or just enjoy the lake view from several dining venues. Helen Georgia where my grandsons like to tube on the river is a bit further, but an enjoyable scenic drive. We were there over the July 4th holiday and could see and hear the fireworks over the lake from our deck with the boats gathered on the lake below looking like twinkling stars. Speaking of stars, the view of the night sky from the deck and hot tub was spectacular. The manager provided firewood so that we could enjoy the fireplace in the morning and evening when the weather was cool - the grandkids fashioned sticks from outside into skewers to roast marshmallows and make s'mores. The house is decorated beautifully and the kitchen was stocked with everything needed to prepare meals at home when we didn't want to venture out to local restaurants - breakfast on the deck each morning was delightful.

What an incredible family vacation at Lake Burton! Enchantment is a lovely property. The ever changing views of the lake and mountains are just incredible. The home is so comfy and we enjoyed our meals on the deck in the morning and evening. The owner and manager are so wonderful to work with and try to meet your every need. I would highly recommend this property.

Our family had the best week in this cabin! The view is spectacular and so is the cabin! Danielle and the management company were wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend this cabin!! We spent every day exploring the area, but would be back in time to cook dinner under the stars and relax in the hot tub. We made so many great memories here that will never be forgotten. My seven-year-old little girl had an absolute blast! Thank you for everything!
