Property description

Welcome to our Riverfront Mountain Getaway directly on the Hiwassee River. If you are looking for a place to just get away from it all and enjoy the outdoors, or a couple looking for that i quiet romantic getaway this may be just what your looking for.

Besides just relaxing or enjoying a fire by the river, you can try your luck fishing for trout, with over 1 mile of wadeable access from the property, swimming, kayaking, all right here on the property!!

Our Guest House is perched above the river on a moderately wooded 1 acre lot detached from our home, providing unique views overlooking the Hiwassee river with over 200 feet directly on the river.

We are located halfway between the towns of Hayesville and Murphy, in the small community of Sweetwater.The local saying here is we are 2 hours from everywhere (Atlanta,Asheville,Knoxville,Chattanooga,Greenville). We are just 10 minutes from beautiful Lake Chatuge , where you can enjoy various water activities. Other local places of interest include the John C Campbell Folk School,where craftsmen and artists come from all over the world to learn and hone there skills. Brasstown Valley Resort and Golf. Nantahala and Ocoee river whitewater rafting, are just a few examples of the many activities nearby.

After a day of sightseeing or enjoying a day on the river come back and relax in the Guest House , which is a 2 bedroom (1 bedroom downstairs with a queen bed, and 2 twin beds in the loft). The interior is done with solid hickory floors throughout,a spiral staircase to the loft, upgraded Stainless appliances, solid granite countertops in kitchen and bath. The bath is done with travertine floors and walls in the shower. For those visiting in the cooler months you will enjoy stepping out of the shower to the heated floor. You can relax on the deck and let the view and sound of the river take you away.. For entertainment we have a collection of various board games and books. There is a 42 inch TV with DVD and video library in the living room. . We have decorated the cabin with upscale furniture but, with a casual look to make you feel right at home!! Because of all the above,our location on one of the most scenic sections of the river, easy access with private drive off the paved road, our Guest House is considered to be one of top rentals is the area. We know you won't be disappointed!

We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise in the mountains with you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are originally from Ft Myers, Florida. Peggy is retired, and I am semi-retired. ( I spend the summer as whitewater river guide) We have 2 children and 4 grand children. We built our modest home here in 1985. Naturally family and friends love to visit so we found the need to add the Guest House in 2010.

Why the Owner Chose Hayesville:
We feel very fortunate to have found this little piece of paradise. Just the view of the river itself is so peaceful. The small town atmosphere is another reason we love it here.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The relaxing views and sound of the river , plus being able to just walk down and enjoying fishing, kayaking, and swimming are a nice bonus.
