                      Picture a pristine, crystal clear, spring-fed lake in the rolling foothills of North Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Lake Arrowhead is over 540 acres and has over 11 miles of shoreline. Bass in the 6-8 lb range are common, so are fish like bream, catfish and crappie. This naturally beautiful, private community also boasts an outstanding 18-hole Championship golf course --repeatedly voted one of the best courses in North Georgia,-- 8 miles of gorgeous hiking trails, tennis, basketball, batting cages, horseshoe pits and a community pool. The nearby area has opportunities for horseback riding, touring historic sites and antique shopping, as well as a Scottish 'links' style golf course less than 10 miles from the house. All of this is just 60 miles north of Atlanta.

                      Other Activities: kayaking, paddleboating, 20ft pontoon boat

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We (Kathy and Mike) are longtime Atlanta residents who have dabbled in real estate over the years. This is our only vacation property at this time. Kathy's career is in Business Development for a large American corporation. Mike has 30 years experience in every aspect of the hospitality industry; hotels, bars and restaurants primarily. We've tried to use that experience and our love of entertaining when setting this house up for our guests. We try to empathize with the traveler, and will - literally- go that 'extra mile' to make sure our guests are comfortable. (In other words, 'We'll come meet you if you get lost! :) We hope you call us or email soon.

                      Why the Owner Chose Waleska:
                      We have family that have owned property on Lake Arrowhead for years and we've always kept an eye out to see if anything came on the market that intrigued us. Lake Arrowhead is the most pristine lake in all of Georgia and the private community there is one of the most welcoming and hospitable communities we've ever known. It's a charming home but with plenty of room to host groups. It's on the water, yet in a quiet shallow cove that stays shaded all summer. It's just a wonderful, comfortable property, and the lake community is kept so natural that you really feel like you're a million miles away from it all.
