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."

"If you want to relax & enjoy the stunning views this is the place for you. This home is beautiful & you get exactly what you see in the pictures. We were looking for a place to stay for a few days & we were lucky to find this home. We were close enough to town for easy shopping & all the that we needed. We were beyond thrilled with everything. Thank you Mark for all your help & for the use of your beautiful home...."

"Our stay at Julie Mountain Retreat was simply wonderful. The home is well appointed in a beautiful setting. The hummingbirds come daily to buzz the deck, there were songbirds galore and the cutest little lizards you ever saw scurried across the picnic table. We ate, drank, slept, visited friends in the valley, toured the local sights and came home rested. Who could ask for more? Some other reviewers have mentioned the road. Yes, it's steep and gravel, but my Camry, a Prius, and a station wagon all made it without any difficulty, even on rainy days. I wouldn't drive a delivery truck up there, but anything else should have no problems. I couldn't recommend this haven more."

"We were blown away from the moment we walked in the front door! Pictures don't do this beautiful home justice..this spot far exceeded our expectations!! Impeccably decorated and has everything you could possibly need. A bit steep to the lake but we enjoyed the excerise even my sister in law who is seven months pregnant. Older kids had a blast playing air hockey and darts. Spent hours fishing..wish we had better luck..maybe next time! We will definitely be back! Thank you so much"
