Property description

Enjoy the best Lake Chatuge has to offer! Fantastic views of the lake and surrounding hills from anywhere in the house. This beautiful, clean, stream fed lake is the reason I make the drive up from Atlanta as much as possible. There is just something about this place that takes all the weight off my shoulders and brings me that feeling of peace. If you have spent any time up here you know exactly what I mean!

The home was newly renovated in Late 2012. Sleeps nine (1 king, 1 queen, 1 full, 1 twin, and 1 full pull out) All new hardwoods, granite, tile, paint, furniture, linens, bedding, and fixtures. The wide open floor plan, high ceilings, island kitchen, and dining area make it great for all family sizes.

The master king size suite has a great view of the lake complete with sliding class door to spacious back deck. A large walk-in closet and spacious bathroom will give you all the creature comforts you deserve.

The guest room on the main level has its own bathroom, closet, and plenty of storage as well as a flat screen.

The Terrace level is where I personally like to hang out. I like to sit in the lazy boy or sprawl out on one of the couches to watch the game on the 54' flat screen. A large bunk room, full bath, laundry area, and game room are just a few features of the lower level.

The deck spans the entire length of the house, and wraps around to the front door. Most of the deck is covered complete with comfortable furniture and ceiling fans.

As pretty as the house is...I just cant compete with lake! So have at it. One of the reasons I chose this house is because its not a 1/2 mile hike down a steep hill to the lake! Its probably about 20 yards from end of the back steps. I know that may seem nit picky to say, but when you carrying coolers and kids back and forth to the dock it makes all the difference in the world.

Pull your boat up and enjoy our huge two story dock. The privacy of this wide deep water cove allows you to feel relaxed enough to let the kids swim freely without the boat traffic and chop the rest of the lake gets. The water depth at the end of the dock last September was over 15 feet.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. This house means a lot to our family. I want our kids to enjoy the outdoors as well as have a sacred place to build memories. I am sure Ive found that place right here! Whether you have a family or just want a romantic getaway we are honored to have you as our guest and pride ourselves in making sure you have an awesome time on Lake Chatuge.

Feel free to use any sunscreens or items we have left in the side masters closets as we know sometimes its hard to bring every small thing you may need. All baths also have separate heaters. My wife tuns these on in the summer when she takes a shower (not sure why). The guest bath upstairs is a full bath with single vanity. There is plenty of storage here as well. The vanity closet is where extra towels and another set of sheets, blankets, and pillows are stored. feel free to use them for your personal items as well. Downstairs (terrace level) has a large full bath too that has recently been built. It has a stand up shower. Outside there is a shower as well. We use this to rinse off after swimming in the lake....moreless

Car: Recommended

Lake Chatuge, is fed by the Chatuge River in the Nanataha National forest. It is a TVA lake. The water is clean and cool. The elevation at water level is close to 2k feet above sea level and some of the surrounding mountains can reach 4k. Nights are cool and and the air is clean. This lake is great because its not busy at all. I always feel like I am getting my 'nature experience' here. My kids love to horseback ride, jet ski, fish, and hike. We can eat out in Hayesville, or grill out overlooking the lake. I actually feel my shoulders relax as soon as I come over the mountain and into Hiawassee from Atlanta. What I thought would be a place for the kids to have fun, has turned into something reply spiritual for me as well.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My name is Neil and my wife is Amanda. We are a Family of 5 from Johns Creek, Ga. I grew up in Atlanta and went to the University of Georgia (at least thats what i've been told) I work in Buckhead which is probably why I love to escape to Lake Chatuge as much as possible. We have a 6 year old and twin 4 year olds. Of course they love it up here. They ask almost every week 'are we going to the lake house this weekend?' And if the answer is no I get the long 'awwweee!!'(you parents know what I mean) Its like your parent rating suddenly drops from an 8.8 to a 4.1 ! To me this is about creating lasting memories, and of course having fun. My parents come up here to relax. I haven't done that yet lol. Im always doing… Ever fished with 3 small kids? Is it relaxing? Its eventful. Im kidding! I do creep out at dusk to the ridges to play golf or sneak the fishing boat out at 5 a.m. I love it here.

Why the Owner Chose Hayesville:
Close to Atlanta 90 miles, and other NC cities. I love the local flair and and the many art and music festivals. Near by locally owned stores such as Body Sense offer Massages and unique gifs and clothing. Make reservation at the Copper Door for some fine dining while your here. Horseback riding at track rock stables, hiking in the Nanatahala… The property itself was an easy pick. Not too step of aslpoe, super close to the water, just a great lot. The house was picked for the open and spacious floor plan. Tons of light and a great deck. Come check it out!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Easy lake access, open floor plan, huge wrap around porch and deck. Deep and all year water.
