Why Tiffany Nelson chose Tiger

After searching the area, we selected Lake Burton because it is by far the most beautiful lake in the S.E. with its mountain setting and pristine water. Our cove has very little boat or car traffic and is ideal for swimming and relaxing.

The house is close to many beautiful and historic sites and within 2 hr. driving distance to Atlanta.

All four seasons on the lake are wonderful, but the spectacular Fourth of July fireworks on the lake which are shot off just outside our cove are not to be missed. Even on peak holiday weekends it is not overly crowded.

Beautiful lake house

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful. My kids (8 and 10) loved being able to run around by the lake and the house is big enough that everyone had plenty of space. The upstairs loft easily sleeps 4 additional people. We made a fire every night and had s'mores. Hiked during the day. Tiffany answered all of our questions and recommended horseback riding and ziplining in the area, which were both awesome. She also gave us restaurant choices. We went to Universal Joint twice because it was so good. Great little area in the mountains with a great house.

What a Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our first visit to Lake Burton after hearing for years what a wonderful lake it is. The home is beautifully decorated, the furniture is very comfortable, the main room is light and bright with a beautiful view of the peaceful cove. We rented a boat at the marina and enjoyed a day on the lake, and took a nice hilly hike right out the front door of the house. The house was clean, well-appointed, and we would definitely stay there again.

Fun Times

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place for a family vacation, the house is so beautiful. Loved the time we spent there with our Son, daughter in law and our 3 grandsons. Loved the lake and boat house! We had so much fun roasting marsh mellows and making smores. It is close to Tulluah River where we went a couple time for trout fishing, and hiking. Quite street. We hope to go back again soon. We would love to go in the cooler months so we can use the beautiful fireplace. Thanks for the great vacation memories.

A Wonderful Stay~

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently made a first visit to Lake Burton, and we look forward to many more. This home was perfect for us, we found it to be very spacious, and extremely cozy at the same time. This was our 4th time in selecting a VRBO home, all have been very enjoyable and have met our needs, this one however, seemed to go above and beyond. We literally had every comfort of home. As mentioned in one of the other reviews, the master bed is even more comfortable than our own. Our children are 7 & 8, they were able to explore the grounds and loved fishing from the boat house. We also found the location to be excellent, we ventured out to all the surrounding towns, we highly recommend Tallulah River Gorge, as well as Sunburst Stables for horseback riding and their zip line. The owners have provided a great book with information of the surrounding areas in the home. We miss waking up in the morning to the sunlight streaming in and the amazing views of the lake...this gracious home is a wonderful memory for us, thank you for allowing us to stay!

Lake Burton Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful retreat from the busy hustle-bustle of everyday life. The house had all the comforts of home, plus the boat house with a deck where we could relax, sunbathe, read or have a picnic as the deck had a table and chairs. The downstairs (ground level) had an entertainment center and comfortable seating. On the ground level there was a beautiful master bedroom with master bath so that with children present it afforded privacy. There was also a guest bedroom with bath on the same floor. The loft area provided a king size bed as well as twin beds also with its own bath. We had a wonderful time and have made arrangements to return as soon as possible, and we would positively recommend it for your vacation.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that your stay and overall experience was satisfactory. I remember our conversation regarding you reservation and your eagerness to see Lake Burton for the first time. I can only hope that you came away with the same sense of awe and wonderment of the lake's beauty that we have. If I recall, you wanted to rent again this summer. If so, just let us know and we will make home available once again. Thanks again for your interest in our home; Sam
