"We stayed at Jim and Lori's cabin for a full week with 3 couples, 2 babies, 2 small pups and had a great time! There was plenty of space for us to hang out and be together when we wanted and room to retreat when we needed :) The house was clean, stocked with everything we needed to cook meals every day and was an easy drive to Blairsville and Blue Ridge when we wanted to get out. The BEST part, of course, was the access to the lake and pontoon boat. We were on the lake every day cruising, swimming and just enjoying the overall beauty that Lake Nottely has to offer. We would stay at Black Bears Den again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great vacation!!!"

"We spent a lovely couple of days with our grandchildren and King Charles Spaniel at this beautiful home. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The kids loved swimming and fishing from the dock, riding in the boat and making s'mores in the evenings. The hot tub was a big hit as well. We could not have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable time together. Just wish we could have stayed longer!"

"We vacation in the Blue Ridge area every summer (and about every other fall) and have always stayed on Lake Blue Ridge. This year we wanted to see what Lake Nottely was like, and we couldn't have been happier with the lake and the cabin, Kedra on the Lake. The cabin is beautiful, well maintained, and well stocked even for our large group. The location on Lake Nottely was perfect for us, as we like to spend many days lazily floating in the water. There was not a lot of boat traffic in the cove and we could let the kids float out without worry. The house was well equipped for our cooking and leisure needs, and the kids and adults spent the evening hours at the ping pong table or enjoying the view of the lake looking out across the large backyard from the porch swing.
During our stay, the neighbor Doug was very helpful and friendly. He provided us insight and recommendations for surrounding attractions like local vineyards and wine tastings. His top recommendation was our favorite, so he sure knows his stuff. He also has his pontoon boat for rental and it was absolutely perfect for us. It was less than half the price of the marina's and perfectly suited for our first tour of Lake Nottely. For any visitors who arrive at Kedra, get to know Doug and his wife, they are some of the friendliest people we've ever met in the area.
We will certainly be coming back to Kedra on the Lake on our next trip, and look forward to seeing more of the historic Blairsville area. I highly recommend this property and lake to all families and vacationers. It really is a perfect property for those wishing to relax and get away from bustle of city life. The location is easy to get to and it is centrally located to many attractions, including the Olympic Whitewater Center (see our buddies at Ocoee Adventure Center for rafting trips), Crane Creek Vineyards (simply stunning property), and the best little eatery in Blairsville, Hole in the Wall cafe. Oh, and stop off at the Bearding Bottle Shop for those who prefer brews to wine.
Thank you to Kelly, Doug, and the owners of Kedra on the Lake for making our trip perfect!"
