This is a quintessential Rabun-style cabin nestled among the towering mountain pines, and one of the lake's larger coves. Built in 1935, from land purchased from lake founder, August Andreae, this home has been lovingly restored and ready for you to enjoy. Conveniently located right on prime shoreline, less than a mile from the historic Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant, Louie's, and Hall's Boat House.

The space

Originally a poker lodge for 5 gentlemen from Washington, GA in the 30's and then a family summer cottage in the 50's on, this is a beloved cottage is on the heart of Lake Rabun in an easy location to get to, as well as enjoy stops like the hotel and boathouse less than 1 mile away. Common to this area, the house sits back on the hill and Lake Rabun Rd wraps around the lake. Unique boathouses, including this home's, are right on the lake. Note that the road divides this property, so be mindful of crossing with small children.

• Parking for 2 vehicles
• Out of respect to our neighbors, please keep the noise level to a minimum during late hours, sound travels easily across the lake.
• Do not sit on the indoor furnishings in wet swimwear.
• Do not put wet towels on the furniture or on the wood floor.

Other than that, enjoy the house and all that Northern Georgia has to offer! We've put a lot of time and effort into making this home a relaxing and memorable destination. We ask that you be respectful of all the furniture and accessories that we lovingly chose; it is truly special to us, and is key to making the lake house the unique home that it has been through the years.

NOTE: Although the cleaning fee does pay for the house to be professionally cleaned, we do ask that you clean all the dinnerware/silverware/cookware used, and that everything is in the general location that you found it on arrival.

Thank you so much. We hope you enjoy your stay!

This is an outstanding rental for Lake Rabun! It was so clean and simple, yet had all of the amenities we needed. It was comfortable, spacious, and beautiful! The boathouse was perfect perch for a lazy, rainy Sunday afternoon. Amy was super quick to answer any questions we had before checking in. I highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to relax at Rabun. We plan on going back for a summer trip soon--- and we will stay longer! A perfect Fall Break Retreat for our family of 6!

Great house on Lake Rabun. Quiet location on lake. Close to Halls and Lake Rabun hotel. House has been well renovated and very comfortable. Loved sitting on the front porch and enjoyed boat house and kayaks.

Amy was the most gracious and accommodating host I have ever experienced on Airbnb. I planned a long weekend at her beautiful house in Lake Raburn for my mothers 60th birthday and it sadly came on the tail end of hurricane Irma. We received notice from Amy the day before we were due to arrive that the power was out and they had no idea when it would be back on. This created a need for a greater level of communication between Amy and I. Amy was quick to respond and problem solve with us. The power ended up coming back on and our trip was not only salvaged but it will be a weekend that we will never forget. Amy is an incredible host and her house is so beautiful you really have to see it to believe it. Every detail of her house is thoughtfully designed and for comfort and beauty. The newly redone kitchen was such a pleasure to cook in we didn't even bother eating out the whole weekend. Thank you so much Amy, I have a feeling we will be back!

Response from Amy:
Anna - thanks so much for this review and for being so easy to work with given the situation with the power. I'm so happy your family got to enjoy the lake and celebrate your mom's milestone birthday. You were a joy to work with, and hope you return next summer!

Our family of five had a fantastic Labor Day stay at Amy's place - and can tell you that Lake Rabun is a magical place. It is truly a step back in time with a slower place and laid back luxury. The Lee House is a perfect location on the lake - convenient to everything, very wide lake at that point, and convenient to Hall's Boathouse and Lake Rabun Hotel (where we had dinner). Amy's communication was quick and recommendations were thoughtful. We are planning to return next summer. Thanks Amy!

Kevin - just wanted to take a moment and thank you for this wonderful review. We're so glad your family enjoyed your stay over Labor Day weekend, and look forward to having you back next summer! Thanks, Amy

This AirBNB might be my favorite experience yet. Absolutely everything in the house and the boathouse has been updated in beautiful modern styling. It honestly felt like living in an organic version of a Restoration Hardware catalog. :) The fire pit over the water is lovely, and having use of the kayaks was so much fun. Amy is a great host and is an attentive communicator. Hope to be back again soon!

We had a wonderful time at Amy's house! They have done such a beautiful job remodeling the house. You will not be disappointed! We were fortunate enough to be there during the eclipse and it was spectacular too see it from the lake! We did not rent a boat but didn't miss it because we brought a kids' kayak and used Amy's kayaks and floats and that was plenty. Plus the kids jumped off the dock over and over again! We would book there again, no question!

Response from Amy:
Kristin - thanks for being such a terrific guest. I was so happy that the weather held out so you all could enjoy the eclipse to the fullest! What a special event. Hope you find yourself back on Lake Rabun sometime in the future. Have a great week! Amy

Hi! We're Amy and Tom.

Thanks for checking out our Lake Rabun vacation rental page! It caught our eye too a couple years back and we were completely smitten with an ivy covered, one (sort of) bathroom, and a crooked 'for sale by owner' sign. (In fact, this picture is from the day we first discovered it and we were peeking in the windows.)

Fast forward through countless hours on Pinterest, endless raking, and multiple 'what were we thinking?!' moments - we're so pleased to be able to share this special place with you.

We hope you find your way to what we affectionately call "the Lee place" and get to experience beautiful Northern Georgia.
