                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About: Hi everyone! We are a family of 3+3. Mom and Dad in our 40-50's; a 10 year old daughter; two rescued cats and a rescued dog. Dad works for National Defense as a Physicist. Mom also works for National Defense as an Engineer. We have spent a fair amount of our lives in the South and love the mountain area!

                      Why Carters Lake:
                      Why Ellijay: We fell in love with the area when visiting a couple of years ago and ended up buying a home we loved it so much. We have visited Gatlinburg often but find that this area provides a more immersive experience and enjoy it more. It is also closer for us than Gatlinburg! Ellijay provides a low key small town feel and the area really lets you unwind and feel connected with nature. Why this home: We chose this home because 1) it has an in ground pool!; 2) it has a great flow and feel; 3) is new and well built ; 4) the subdivision is controlled and is gated. Homes are spread out and we rarely make contact with anyone when we visit. We certainly never see other houses from this one. This makes for a very private and relaxing break. The house has an open floor-plan with 20+ foot ceilings and lots of pine tongue-and-groove. Everything was built well to include the professional fire pit and outdoor pool.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      My daughter would have to say the number one benefit is the in ground pool and Hot Tub. She spends most of her time in either one! For Mom and Dad, it is the peacefulness of the area and the openness of the house. When you look out from most living areas there are wonderful long range views of the Georgia Mountains, views of mature Hickory, Hemlock, Oak, and Cedar. To me, the house feels integrated into the mountain area. Views of the North Georgia Mountains are everywhere, Even the fire pit has a view! We all love the game room. Lots of tournaments to be had and family fun. This is a massive room with full sized air hockey, pool table, multicade arcade game, restored Sorcerer pinball machine, Foosball, electronic darts, and PS2. My daughter is pretty good with the old arcade games - she beats me all the time! Her favorite is Time Pilot. My wife is a die hard Centipede fan. Although I never played it in the 80's, I like Gyrus. There are 48+ arcade games to choose from; built into an original 80's MS. Pac-man game cabinet! My favorite in the game area has to be the Sorcerer pinball machine. I took the game apart, refurbished it, put it back together, and it plays great! Reminds me of playing pinball in the 80's - lots of fun. There are fishing ponds within a 5 minute walk and walking trails that start at the backyard of this house. With one of the best stream and Lake fishing in Georgia within 20 minutes as well as tubing and canoeing, the options are endless. The perfect evening for us is to take a dip in the pool and Hot Tub after a long day while Dad grills steaks. Dad: the Grill is in line of sight of the pool/Hot Tub and in talking range. You wont be relegated to an isolated spot. We eat the steaks by the pool then take a dip in the hot tub while a fire is starting in the fire pit. On a clear night we see shooting stars from the hot tub every couple of minutes! Then we sit around the fire and enjoy stories while roasting marshmallows.
