We are around the corner from Lake Rabun where you can enjoy one of the most beautiful mountain lakes. Lake Rabun was built in 1915 by Georgia Power. The lake's cool, deep waters have been a year round haven for the most discriminating Atlantans and others. You can rent a boat, pontoon or wave runner, hang out on the beach or Bring your own boat for a day of fun on the lake skiing, tubing, wake-boarding or just cruising. You could also discover Lake Tugaloo or Tallulah lake. They are both quiet hidden gems for swimming, rock diving or a picnic. Lake Seed and Lake Burton Offer similar activities and are not very far.

If you want to explore, Tallulah Gorge is only minutes away. Here you can find, beautiful waterfalls, hikes, bolder trekking and tons of fun on Sliding rock (Angel Falls). The Tallulah River offers excellent fishing-stocked by the DNR.

Scotty purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Scotty chose Lakemont

We love the North Georgia Mountains!! Our family has always had a place on Lake Rabun and we love entertaining family and friends. Clear View Lodge has offered us more space for guest when we are having big gatherings and a place that we can open up to other guest to enjoy this wonderful spot.

What makes this lodge unique

We fell in love with this property the second we saw it for its lovely stonework and the spaciousness inside. It's large vaulted ceiling in the den/kitchen and the 10 foot knotty pine tongue and groove ceilings and chair railings

Lovely Home - Great for a Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Clear View Lodge - the home is spacious and comfortably appointed and has plenty of things (books, DVDs, games, etc.) for everyone to enjoy. I expected my sons to express disappointment over the lack of WiFi and cable, but they really actually enjoyed the disconnect and had a great time playing ping pong and cards. Scotty was very accommodating when we needed things and a pleasure to deal with always. The only reason this isn't a 5-star review is that we had to request a few basic things -- specifically toilet paper, paper towels, and plastic wrap. These items should always be provided in abundance to spare guests from having to request them (never mind wait for them). Also, the ping-pong/pool table is in the garage space, and as such, it really is more of a 3-season room. We had to have space heaters brought in to make it warm enough to enjoy during our December visit, so keep that in mind when booking. You may also want to consider bringing a humidifier as the home gets extremely dry when the heat is on.

Overall a wonderful trip and we hope to return someday soon!

Our family and friends had a wonderful time here! Beautiful was big; there was plenty of room for our family and some friends who stopped by daily. Very comfortable all around, nicely decorated with comfy beds. The ping pong table was a big hit too. The weather was beautiful so we were able to enjoy sitting out on the big deck with a stunning view of the mountains. Scotty was great and easily gotten hold of for a few questions. I would highly recommend Clear View Lodge for any stay!

This is a beautiful house and the owners were wonderful to work with. We booked this for my sons wedding which was being held at the pavilion. Due to the hurricane there was no power at the venue until the night before the wedding. Leading up to the day, Scotty was so understanding and even tried to help us find other options in the case power was not restored, luckily thanks to GA Power the power was restored and the wedding went beautifully. The house is beautifully decorated and has many nice touches. A fully equipped kitchen, beds are very comfortable, the game room was fun for everyone and even the bathrobes were an extra special touch. We loved the area and all there is to do. The neighborhood is beautiful and would recommend this as a great mountain/lake getaway.

Beautiful Relaxing Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the area and we loved our stay at Clear View Lodge. Scotty was very responsive and helpful. The lodge is beautifully decorated and very inviting. We didn't stay in the lodge much due to the water rafting and hiking in the area but it had everything we needed. I must point out that there is no cable or WiFi (which is stated in the details ) and luckily it was only us adults or the kids may have had a come apart but they had lots of movies to watch had we wanted too but we stayed outdoors anyway. We had a great visit and would recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed a relaxing get away at Clear View Lodge. It is so nice that we are so close to many great outdoor adventures like white water rafting and hiking that you enjoyed. It's great to get disconnected for a weekend isn't it? I love this: Anybody have plans to stare at their computer someplace exciting this weekend? Or, "Put down your phone and listen to your life." Ha. Love it! Come back to the mountains and enjoy the good life!! Scotty and Jason

Excellent Property with Great Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

Can't state enough how much I appreciated the prompt communication from Jason and Scotty. Very professional.

The property itself is inside a development, not in some obscure location. That said, if using a GPS on your phone, use Google Maps only. Apple Maps will have your head spinning. Property description is accurate and there's something for everyone. (Even a Barbi movie for my 2 year old daughter that after several viewings I gladly let her know it had to

All said, a great experience and given the last minute nature of it all and the service I received I'm grateful for the weeks worth of memories made with my family. Thanks guys!

Car: necessary

There are so many great places to visit close to Clear View Lodge. Of Course, you can't beat spending a sunny day on a boat on Lake Rabun. We have local rentals so you can tube, waterski, wakeboard, paddle board, canoe or kayak. Another one of our Favorite places is Tallulah Gorge with its gorgeous views, waterfalls, hiking and rock sliding. And, for the more adventurous there is rock climbing and kayaking at the Gorge.
