Lakemont is a quiet, wooded "populated place" located near Lake Rabun in northeastern Georgia. It is home to an upscale mountain lodge and hotel and a cozy, historic bed and breakfast inn. Lakemont is most well-known for being home to Lake Rabun. This lovely, 835-acre lake is the third in a series of six lakes that follow the original course of the Tallulah River. All of these lakes are owned and operated by the Georgia Power Company to generate energy for the city of Atlanta. Lake Rabun was built in a deep valley along a ten-mile stretch of the Tallulah River in Rabun County. There are many second homes in the Lake Rabun/Lakemont area, which are owned by some of the most wealthy and politically connected individuals in Georgia. Lake Rabun is used for recreation, however the strong home owners association and board members have resisted attempts to make it more commercialized, wanting to maintain its' serene, uncrowded appeal. The lake is known for its unique annual 4th of July celebration. Every year there is a wooden boat parade that follows the shoreline of Lake Rabun. Prizes are given to the most decorated boat and boat house. Come nightfall, a spectacular fireworks display is presented directly on the lake. Spectators may watch from the hundreds of boats crowded along the lower basin of the lake, or along the lakeshore. Nearby attractions include Blalock Lake and Tallulah Falls Lake.
