LAKE FRONT, 4 bedroom, 3 full bath

Bring your friends and family to peaceful, quiet Lake Arrowhead! Our 4 Bedroom 3 bath home is located on a tranquil deep water cove surrounded by trees and sounds of nature. Lake Arrowhead is a 540 acre private lake that only allows no wake boating except in area by the dam, so it is always quiet. The only sounds you hear are sounds of fun and laughter!!! Our home has space on our dock for 2 boats (only property owners are permitted to bring boats in gate) There are boats for rent at the marina and we occasionally will rent our boat to our guests. We also provide a canoe and 2 kayaks for our guests use. The home speaks for itself; full of charm and comfort. Master and downstairs bedroom have views of the lake from bed. The open plan in kitchen and great room allow for openness and mingling with family and friends. The deck provides plenty of room for dining and hanging out enjoying the view and sunsets in the evening. There is another living area on the bottom floor that opens up to a large screened porch with door leading down a short stone path to the dock and lake! Lake Arrowhead has many amenities which include: an 18 hole Golf Course, Restaurant, walking trails, park, tennis courts and two pools. There are many different places to explore while here; Canton, Cartersville, Ellijay, and Blue Ridge, etc. Gibbs Gardens, Tellus Science Museum and Amicalola State Park are three of our favorites!

Bonus: Our Home was selected to be on HGTV's "Lake Front Bargain Hunt Renovation". The episode premiered on 5/13/2017! It was an awesome experience and showcases our amazing Lake Arrowhead! #lakefrontbargainhunt

About Angela Gibney

My business partner Lisa Steele and I purchased this home in 2016! We are both licensed Estate Agents in Georgia. We love buying and rehabbing properties, especially at Lake Arrowhead. We both love Lake Arrowhead and live here full-time! We gutted the kitchen and great room and completely renovated it. My passion is design and decorating and of course, spending all the time I can enjoying the lake! We were so fortunate to be selected to have our home's renovation featured on HGTV's "Lake Front Bargain Hunt Renovation". It was an awesome experience for our families and a great showcase for our treasured Lake Arrowhead! #lakefrontbargainhunt

Why Angela Gibney chose Cherokee County

We fell in love with the deep water cove and the privacy it provides. The short steps to the lake and being able to jump in and swim sold us on the property. The layout of the home allows two families to vacation here very easily! We also wanted a home that our out of town guests and family could enjoy!

What makes this House unique

Lake Front, nice renovation, deep water, kayaks, a canoe, 18 hole golf course, Restaurant/Clubhouse, parks, trails, tennis and pools. Owner may on occasion rent their pontoon. Please inquire if interested! Also great location to explore North Georgia! Close to Canton, Cartersville, Jasper, Ellijay and Blue Ridge.

And the oar house was wonderful! It was beautiful, well furnished, immaculate! We enjoyed the beautiful setting, the canoes and kayaks-they even had young children life vests! We would highly recommend it and will plan another trip back!
