"Our 3rd fall stay at Bella Vista was just as wonderful as our first and second! We stayed five days and traveled throughout the region during the day while coming "home" at night to cook in the well stocked kitchen and enjoy the fireplace. The view from this cottage is one of the best - mountains and the lake! Monica and Ed have thought of many details to make you feel that you are staying at a friend's home, not just a rental unit. This is the place to go to relax and rewind! - Pam and Clay W., Metairie Louisiana"

"Our stay at this beautiful home was just perfect. We enjoyed the views, which differed each day. We enjoyed hiking, as well as visiting numerous interesting stops in the region. Above all, we enjoyed the peace of mind that was possible simply because we had rented from excellent owners. Monica and Ed provided everything we would need. Their care for their home transcended to us, the tenants and that meant lots. We highly recommend this home and look forward to returning in the near future. - Raul A."

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.

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 Hayesville: 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!
