Hiawassee cabin description

Just 2 hours from Atlanta GA, Chattanooga TN, Asheville NC and Greenville SC, our home “Bella Vista” (Beautiful View) is the perfect destination to get away from it all. Overlooking the Great Smokey Mountains and nestled among 3.5 quiet acres, our private cottage has views of the mountains and Lake Chatuge. Please take a minute to click on REVIEWS to read what recent guests have said, and click on the VIDEO tab to the left above the photo to take the Bella Vista virtual tour inside and out!

We believe in fully accommodating our guests. At Bella Vista, we want you to simply bring your clothes and relax. All the small things are provided for you... hair dryers, (even curling irons), hotel toiletries, bed, bath and kitchen linens, laundry and dish soap, paper towels, napkins, foil, spices, kitchen staples such as coffee, tea, flour, sugar, and much more.

Bella Vista is for couples and friends who appreciate all the creature comforts of home while spending a private, NEIGHBOR-FREE, relaxing time in the mountains. Enjoy a mountain rain shower under the covered porch, a breezy afternoon on the open deck, or take a short drive to Brasstown, the highest peak in Georgia, where you can take in breathtaking views of four surrounding states.

By day, explore the spectacular Blue Ridge & Smokey Mountains, and many other activities in the area. By night curl up with your favorite book, movie or board game. Bella Vista truly has something for everyone. Reserve your getaway now!

For those with flexible schedules, why not take advantage of our Mid-Week Special? Check-in on a Sunday or Monday and stay four nights for the price of three!

Info about the area:

With a 128 miles of shoreline, Lake Chatuge is beautiful and clean and ideal for swimming, boating and fishing. Boat and jet-ski rental is available just a half-mile away, and Bella Vista is located less than 5 minutes from two marinas on the shores of Lake Chatuge. Nearby Jackrabbit Campground offers a public boat launch, picnic areas and a beach swimming area.

For the land lover, there are local wineries, antique stores, horseback riding, restaurants, shopping, plenty of hiking trails, and two 18-hole golf courses nearby. Enjoy events, concerts and festivals year round in downtown Hiawassee, the surrounding areas, and the GA Mountain Fairgrounds. However, the real appeal of Bella Vista is the peace and relaxation you’ll experience just absorbing the view from the comfort of this luxurious cottage.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: We are a professional couple with no children, who love getting away to the peace and serenity of the mountains, and spending relaxing fun times with family and friends. Bella Vista is the perfect place for us to spend time with people we love & we feel blessed to be able to share it with others. Our home is our sanctuary and on 3.5 private acres, surrounded by natural beauty, it can't be beat. Songbirds, hummingbirds and wildlife are frequent visitors to our getaway retreat and when we're there, we feel so at peace and relaxed. We know you will too!

                  Why the Owner Chose Hiawassee:
                  We looked at homes on other lakes in both the Carolinas but when we saw the Lake Chatuge area, we immediately knew this was the lake for us! Surrounded by mountains, it was the most beautiful lake we had seen and there is so much to do in the immediate area. Our home is located on 3.5 private (mostly wooded) acres in a nice, quiet, high-end community, which we appreciate. We enjoy sharing our fabulous find with others and hope you'll love it as much as we do!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Our home is located on 3.5 wooded and private acres, yet it's easy to get to with any kind of vehicle. We have gorgeous views, lots of windows, and no visible neighbors. We are six miles from Hiawassee, 25 minutes from Crane Creek Winery and there is a lot to do in the area, including boat rental and other lake-related activities. Our home offers all the creature comforts of home in a beautiful mountain setting we know you'll love!
