Cornelia cottage description

The Owl's Nest is centrally located between Helen, Clarksville, Cleveland, and Dahlonega. You are just minutes away from everything, plus, you are steps away from access to the Chattahoochee River.
This cottage is newly renovated from top to bottom. If you are relaxing on the deck or enjoying the fire pit area, you hear the river talking to you.
This place has an abundance of amenities: television, Direct TV, telephone, and Wifi. There is also a dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and a washer/dryer. The kitchen contains all essential cookware and utensils, and even some extras.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, the upstairs bedroom has a full size bed, and the sofa-bed (which is very nice, Sterns and Foster) is a queen.
The house features a lovely covered deck with a gas grill and a fire pit area with Adirondack seating.
There is also plenty of parking space, so you may want to bring your boat, kayaks or trailer. Wildwood Outfitters, 5 minutes away, also rents kayaks and has tours.

A few yards from the Cottage's front door are shared earth steps (shared with one other cottage) that lead to the river. There you can follow the path beside the river's edge and discover the GIANT ROCK, and just beyond that, the ROCK CAVE. Along the path, there are several wonderful places to stop and fish, swim, or simply watch the kayakers pass. It is beautiful.

          You can hear the Chattahoochee River from the deck of this lovely cottage. River access is only steps away, and this section of Chattahoochee is called the living river because of the shoals and falls. Guests love fishing, swimming, and kayaking in the 'Hooch'.

          The cottage is located within minutes of Helen- the Alpine Mountain Village-, Tallulah Falls and Tallulah Gorge - where hiking trails are great fun-, and Dahlonega - where GOLD was discovered in Georgia. You can pan for gold and gem stones at several locations. While in Helen, don't miss Unicoi State Park. Cleveland, only minutes away, is where you can find Baby Land General - The Cabbage Patch Babies!

          There are many wineries located in this area and wine tastings held daily. You can also visit Clayton and Dillard where the views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are stunning. Be sure to eat at the Dillard House! There is NO food like it on the planet.

          The Upper Chattahoochee and the Soque Rivers are world renowned for their trout.

          There are also many festivals held in the area: gold, apple, mountain laurel, arts and crafts, wine, and on and on. There is always something going on.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: Mark and Saralyn are both retired and thought it would be great fun to buy the cottage next to their home and renovate it. It had wonderful potential and just needed a lot of love. Mark is originally from Covington, Ga. and was in the insurance business for over 40 years. He also played in a band called the Statesboro Blues Band for 26 years. He enjoys repairing, restoring, and building tube amplifiers. He still rocks! Saralyn is a retired school teacher. She taught gifted language arts. She also sang back-up and harmony for her husband's band. She is originally from Sandersville, Ga. The Davis Family has two children.

          Why the Owner Chose Cornelia:
          We purchased this property because we love the North Georgia Mountains. We always loved vacationing in this area because of the cooler summers and breathtaking views. This cottage provided us an opportunity to share our love of the Northeast Georgia Mountains with many others.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          The secluded river setting allows people to unwind from the daily rat race and enjoy nature and the activities it affords. Let the river sing you to sleep. October: The fall is stunning in the foothills and mountains. The leaves are magnificent. Depending on the weather, the leaves peak about the 3rd or 4th week in October and have actually peaked the first week of November. Helen, the Bavarian Village, celebrates October-fest the entire month with an array of activities. Antiquing: This is the area for magnificent finds. There are a plethora of antique shops filled with unique and interesting items.
