Waterfall at Lake Burton
Overlooking the 2,775-acre Lake Burton, Waterfall at Lake Burton is a gated golf community featuring luxury homes and villas in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Club membership at this northeast Georgia retreat provides access to championship golf, four onsite restaurants, an athletic center, and outdoor leisure throughout the nearby Chattahoochee National Forest.

Named as one of 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. Nestled in the mountains, the course features the southernmost bentgrass fairways and green grass year-round. On the signature second hole, golfers tee off at the top of a 215-foot cascading waterfall.

Residents have dock access on Lake Burton, where fishing, swimming, kayaking, and picnicking are encouraged; boats also are available for half or full day rentals. Waterfall’s central location in the northeast Georgia mountain-lakes region is less than two hours from Atlanta, Asheville, or Greenville. 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 ...

Paradise in Northern Georgia

Mike M - Verified Resident (Since 2015)

My wife and I have been full time residents of south west Florida for the past five years. Although we love Florida during the winter months we find it quite unbearable during the hot and humid summer months. We started vacationing during July and August in the northern states to escape the heat. On our return to Florida this year we happened to ...
