the best journey takes you home


Carolyn is a native of Athens, Georgia. Her family started vacationing at Lake Burton in the early 60’s and built a cabin.  Some of her fondest memories growing up are times spent on the lake, eating at the old LaPrade’s restaurant and slipping down Sliding Rock on Wildcat!


Carolyn and her husband David are full time residents of the Lake Burton Community. They enjoy spending time with their children and grandchildren, sharing their love for all the great outdoor activities in Rabun County.
