Waterfall at Lake Burton
Overlooking the 2,775-acre Lake Burton, Waterfall at Lake Burton is a gated golf community offering luxury homes in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Club membership at this North Georgia retreat provides access to championship golf, the Mountain Lodge clubhouse, Athletic Center and outdoor recreation in the nearby Chattahoochee National Forest.

Named as one of the five “Best of the Best” private golf courses in Georgia by Georgia Golf News, Waterfall Club’s mountain golf course features 18 holes designed by Scott Pool. On the signature second hole, golfers tee off at the top of a 215-foot cascading waterfall.

The 52,000-square-foot Athletic Center includes a fitness center, heated Jr Olympic swimming pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool and indoor sports courts for tennis, pickle ball, and basketball. Outdoor tennis court slated for completion spring 2016.

An on-site concierge organizes activities and a full social calendar of events. The community also has a dock on the lake where fishing, swimming, kayaking and picnicking are encouraged and boats are available for half or full day rental.

Because Waterfall is centrally located in the northeast Georgia mountain-lakes region, Atlanta, Asheville or Greenville can be reached by car in less than an hour and 50 minutes. Franklin, NC with its Smoky Mountain Music Hall is only a 45 minute drive and Athens, Ga with the Classic Center is only a 90 minute drive. Both venues offer consistently outstanding programs of concerts, entertainers and Broadway shows. Request More Information now!

Retired and living at Waterfall

BNordin - Verified Resident (Since April 2014)

Originally from Texas, my wife and I were looking for the ideal location to retire. This is never an easy choice for most retires as there are so many issues to consider. As the parents of five children and four grandchild, we knew we could not live close to all of them, so we needed a place they would want to visit. To state it simply, our chil ...

Waterfall is a 'Hidden Gem'!

Tara W. - Verified Resident (Since 2006)

In what is "seemingly" a remote North Georgia location lies an absolutely breathtaking area called Waterfall at Lake Burton. In point of fact, however, we are located less than two hours north of Atlanta, just far enough away to feel peaceful and secluded!! Purchased as a second home ten years ago we fell in love with this stunning community! Borde ...

A quiet escape from the city.

Hugh M. - Verified Resident (Since 2003)

We discovered Waterfall at Lake Burton over ten years ago. There was no hesitation on our part when we found the perfect house to be our second home. Since our primary home is in South Georgia, the heat makes it uncomfortable for us to live there full time. In addition, my work requires me to spend a lot of time in Atlanta. Because we can drive ...

Waterfall....What a world!

StephanieD - Verified Resident (Since 2014)

David and I rented a condo at Waterfall never guessing that we would become permanent residents. We grew up on Lake Burton and have lived in Rabun County for over 20 years. Choosing to buy a condo here is the best decision we have made. Waterfall has so much to offer, we have not regretted our decision at all. We don't play golf, but that does n ...

Waterfall at Lake Burton is the best kept secret in the golfing world.

Fran C - Verified Resident (Since 2011)

It is hard to believe that you can find a golf course as magnificent as Waterfall without five hour rounds in Atlanta's backyard. Waterfall has scenic hiking, golf, tennis, bocci ball, boating, fishing and a wonderful Lodge for gathering with friends. The Waterfall Club has attracted a dynamic, fun membership.
