Suited my wife and I to a T!
"What an amazing place! My wife and I spent our anniversary here and just loved it. The cottage is the perfect blend of rustic elegance and is well appointed and decorated perfectly. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything that you would need. The back yard with the creek is a little bit of paradise that stirs up memories of my childhood growing up in East Tennessee. In fact, the general location within the foothills is very similar to where I spent my high school days. We made our first visit to Brasstown Bald which was wonderful but to be honest, I could have spent the entire weekend sitting in the back yard relaxing to the soothing sounds of the creek and been perfectly happy with my stay. The owner was great to work with and I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking to relax in nature. We are happy that they would share it with us and we will definitely be going back."

"My husband and I stayed 5 nights at Barefoot Retreat and totally enjoyed everything about the cabin. It is in a good location for hiking, visiting waterfalls, Lake Chatuge, and cute towns such as Blue Ridge and Dahlonega. We also visited the apple orchards in the Blue Ridge area. Leaves were starting to change and this made the area even more beautiful. The cabin is the beautifully decorated and has lots of little extra touches which the ladies will like. The cabin is very clean and well maintained. I have stayed in a number of cabins in the north Georgia and North Carolina and this is my favorite so far!"

"My husband and I absolutely loved this beautiful home on Lake Chatuge. The house was quite large and nicely furnished with numerous amenities, including several boats, a pool table, ping pong, and more movies than you can possibly imagine. And the view was gorgeous too! We highly recommend it."

What a Gem of a find, killer Lake Chatuge Views and very clean.
"My husband and I just stayed at the "Dogwood Den" to celebrate my 60th Birthday. This place was great! Ruth & Glenn are THE best hosts. The cottage is built over a large Garage and was very clean, very well stocked with all you would need as they thought of everything..It has AWESOME views of Lake Chatuge, so relaxing, peaceful and calm. It has great level parking both down by the Garage area (plus a covered area which is great for motorcycles, etc.) and up by the main living area which is all on one level. There is level parking right alongside the deck leading to the cottage, so NO Stairs on that main level for loading, unloading and parking. We took our 2 small dogs with us and it was so great to find a place that is pet friendly and does not charge an arm and a leg for Pet Fees and cleaning fees. Their rates are very reasonable for what they offer and they are close by if you need anything at all. Ruth even came over and gave us some great cherry pie for my Birthday! We had such a relaxing weekend, yet we were minutes away from some great places to eat...The Chop House in Hiawassee was awesome. Brasstown Bald, you have to have their Sunday Breakfast or Brunch. Their scallops are fantastic. The marina in close by, other great places to shop and eat or just cook out on their grill or in the fully stocked kitchen. They have a large deck with picnic table, chairs, etc. so you can eat there and enjoy the views!
The cottage has 2 good size bedrooms, hardwood floors throughout. The bathroom is good size with a nice large counter top area, drawers, etc (for all the girl things that you need space for). Single Vanity and Shower. Tile floor. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows. The living room has a FULL size comfy couch so any of you tall boys can lay out on that couch and not have your legs hanging over. My husband had a few good naps there. Plus they have a nice Lazy Boy Recliner and another very comfortable rocker chair with ottoman where I sat. The kitchen has ALOT of counter space and the dinette area is good size too. The cottage is a very open floor plan, lots of natural light. We loved it!
You have access to the lake across the street too if you want to get in for swimming or put in a Kayak or canoe, etc.
I even purchased a pair of hand made earrings and necklace from our host Ruth who makes them!
Cannot say enough about our Find in Hiawassee at the Dogwood Den. Thanks Ruth and Glenn, we WILL return."
