Our office at LaPrade’s Marina is now open for the summer months. This is a very convenient place to start your search for a lake home for several reasons. First, most of the waterfront inventory is on Lake Burton, currently about 100 homes out of 145 available in Rabun County. You can see more home styles and compare different priced lots in less time on one lake rather than jumping around. The prices on Lake Burton and Lake Rabun are very similar. If you find a home you like but need a slightly lower price, the next trip could focus on lower priced Lake Seed.
Next, not everybody wants to spend their entire vacation looking at homes, though I have had many clients who do. Bring the family up and rent a boat. Often it is nice to check out homes in the cooler morning, then you can head out on your own for water sports and exploring for the rest of the day. This is a great way to get to know the lake and see if this lifestyle is what you really want. Pick up lunch on the boat from the Lakeside Grill, and find a nice cove to anchor in for lunch and floating.
At the end of the day change clothes, or not, and have dinner at the Chophouse. I can recommend anything with grouper, and you should probably add a lobster tail if available. Definitely make reservations during the busy summer months. Both the Chophouse and Lakeside Grill have full bars.
If you are thinking about investing in property at Lake Burton or Lake Rabun, give me a call to set up an appointment to meet at our RE/MAX of Rabun Lake Burton office. I can show you all the good places to swim, ski, and eat, and of course all the best homes from where you can start a lifetime of memories. Our office is located in the Boat Shop next to the store. There is also some great shopping for cool lake items and clothing in the store. Be sure to check that out, too!
