"The lake was beautiful and so relaxing. Awesome for swimming and boating. Great selection of paddle boats and water accessories. With all the toys, books, air hockey and games, the kids (ages 2-11) all had a blast! Great house for a big crowd. We had 5 families altogether. The kitchen is very nicely stocked :-) we do a lot of cooking and have rented many houses over the years..... it was really nice to have everything we needed for a change!"

"It can be said that my kids (and sometimes my husband and myself) are additcted to technology. I think that's why this weekend is so special to me. For two days, no one touched their phones, computers, etc, and we enjoyed each other!
The cabin is clean and comfortable and very well equipped. The property is gorgeous. The pictures don't do it justice. There is absolutely no cell service, and no wi fi, so be prepared for that and give anyone that might need you while your gone the cabin number before you leave. Tracy is very quick to respond to any questions, and very helpful. We found the property easily with GPS. The pond toys were great. We bought 4 of the river run tubes when we got home because we liked them so much. The pond was clear and cold. You can't tell from the pictures, but it was pristine really. We loved the hammock and the sky chair and the grates provided to cook over the campfire. Saturday morning, we ventured into Hayesville and had a great breakfast at Maria's Hayesville Family Restaurant. Everyone was so friendly. We got groceries at the ingles in Hayesville and headed back to the cabin. We loved lunch and dinner on the screened porch (with the pretty lights and the fan! We loved it!) and the kids played and explored the creek. We kayaked, and floated and then ended our day around the campfire for hotdogs and smores. After dark, we played yahtzee as a family. I know for sure my kids made memories they won't forget, and that is a blessing to me. Thanks, Tracy and Gary, for the hospitality."

THE BEST TIME WE HAVE EVER HAD AT SCHOOL IN MY LIFE ( MEMORIES FOREVER )
"OF ALL OUR TRIPS TO THE MOUNTAINS THIS IS ONE THAT MY WIFE AND I WILL NEVER FORGET. WE HAD WANTED TO STAY IN THE "ELF SCHOOL" FOR YEARS WHAT A WONDERFUL VACATION. WE HAD THE BEST TRIP
WE HAVE EVER HAD AS THE FEELINGS WE HAD IN THE HOME WAS FASCINATING EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK WE WOULD FIND SOMETHING NEW. THE HOME IS WELL SET SO ALL THAT YOU NEED TO BRING YOUR IS FOOD AND CLOTHES AND GET READY TO ENJOY EACH AND EVERYDAY. THEN ADD THE BOAT AND THAT IS AUSSUM WHAT A PURFECT PLACE TO BE ABLE TO JUST RELAX. LAKE CHATUGE IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LAKES IN OUR COUNTRY AND THE TIME YOU CAN SPEND ON THE BOAT IS A MEMORY THE WILL NEVER LEAVE.
WE HAVE HAD THE GREAT OPPORTUNITY OF STAYING IN BOTH HOMES ( PATTERSON HOME ) THAT CLIFF HAS AND YOU CAN NOT GO WRONG IN EITHER. IF I SAY ANYTHING I MUST SAY THAT CLIFF IS A GENTLEMAN THAT TRULLY WANTS HIS GUEST TO ENJOY THERE STAY. AND WHEN YOUR ON A VACATION THAT IS SO VERY IMPORTANT TO CHOOSE A LOCATION THAT ALL CAN ENJOY AND WITHOUT ANY DOUBT " ELF SCHOOL " IS THAT PLACE.
THANK YOU CLIFF AND WE WILL BE BACK

"My expectations were far exceeded! The cabin was perfect for our family of five. Our two younger daughters loved the loft with the twin beds, while our older daughter enjoyed the privacy and comfort of the guest bedroom. We all appreciated the high speed internet and the TV with satellite and Netflix. It felt just like home, except for the gorgeous views from the deck! You can't get that back home. The bottom floor has another bedroom, bathroom, living area, and game room that we didn't even use. I was very pleased with the property, but even more pleasing was the comfort I felt from the owner. Very responsive, courteous, and thoughtful. I could not have ask for a better experience. Thanks!"
