About the property

Lakefront 5 bdrm, 3 bath, Sleeps 14, boat dock, kayaks, perfect lake location

270' on deep water Lake Nottely cove with gentle slope to shoreline to fish, swim, float, boat, and explore in privacy! Includes access to undeveloped next door lot for pitching tents or hammocks. Also adjacent to neighborhood boat launch for kayak and canoe included. Intimate enough for a romantic weekend, large enough for a multi-generational reunion.

Cove Cottage on Lake Nottely is 270 ft. of lake front comfort nestled near the Chattahoochee Forest of the Blue Ridge mountains of North Georgia. 20 minutes from Blue Ridge, GA, 20 minutes from Blairsville, GA., and 20 minutes from Murphy, NC and the Cherokee Casino. Catch 50 lb. stripers in deep water or catch and release blue gill from the dock and have some of the best places to relax in the entire Southeast.

Our home is located 100 miles north of Atlanta on the shores of Lake Nottely, one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in Georgia. The lake is 20 miles long with 110 miles of shoreline and is 70% National Forest making it one of the greatest relaxation stations in the Southeast.

Remodeled with a lake house industrial marine decor in 2015, the picturesque home sets the tone for relaxation with casually elegant comfort inside and out. With over an acre includes 5 bedroom and 3 baths and loft on 2 levels including a large deck and screen porch. The house, stairs, and the slope to the dock is easy to manage for all ages. We have parking for multiple vehicles and have a keyless door entry system making check in / check out very easy.

The house can comfortably sleep 16, with capacity for more, which makes it ideal for large family, multi-family groups, guys weekends or ladies wine highway weekends. Intimate and affordable enough for couples. Cove Cottage is also a great destination for corporate retreats, team building adventures, fishing trips, golf groups, or family reunions.

Main level has an open floor plan with floor to ceiling wood burning rock fireplace and big screen TV. Off the main seating area is a ping pong table room for family tournaments. Main floor includes master bedroom and bath with lake view and deck access and 2 other bedrooms and 1 other bathroom. The main level includes gourmet kitchen (fully equipped), dining area (seats 10) and screen porch with outdoor sectional and ceiling fan as well as a deck equipped with Adirondack chairs, 6 person dining table and plenty of seating overlooking the lake. Little luxuries include ceiling fans, Direct-TV in 2 rooms, wifi with AT&T micro cell signal booster, central heat/air. The cabinets are filled with games for kids and adults.

The lower level has two additional bedrooms / bunk rooms that sleep 6 and 4 respectively, plus 2 fold out single sleepers. A full bath with walking shower and large capacity washer and dryer. The terrace level also includes a convenient mudroom with room to store fishing gear, hang towels and applying sun screen before heading out to enjoy the lake.

Guests have access to most water toys including noodles, tubes, canoe, paddle boards, kayaks, paddles, kids and adult life jackets with full access and use of the dock. While guests do not have access to motorized boats, Lake Nottely Boat Clue is around the corner for easy rentals of jet skis or tri-toon boats.

Guests also have access to the undeveloped adjacent lot where kids can hang enos, pitch tents or enjoy beautiful views of Davenport Mountain.

Mountain lakes also provide cooler summer temperatures with average highs of 84 and average lows of 62 during the "heat" of the summer and great crisp weather in the spring and fall for fishing, apple picking, or seeing the beautiful mountain colors. The lake is crystal clear and is a true enjoyment for swimming from April 15th - October 15th! Beyond that its just toes in the water as lake levels also drop for rain water retention during winter months. Lake Nottely is part of the Tennessee Valley Authority and is a power generation lake that was built in 1941. Cove Cottage is located on the highly desirable northwestern end of the lake which is the larger party of the lake where the dam, rope swing, public beach and cliffs areas are located. Closest public boat launch is Poteete Creek - approximately 3 miles away and easy to navigate

We are less than 2 Hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga, Asheville, and Knoxville, for anyone interested in outdoor mountain adventure. Short drive to Union County Appalachian Trail entry. Winter, Summer, Spring, or Fall, Cove Cottage on Nottely is accommodating for all!

About Maggie DeCan

A baseball playing family in the northern Atlanta suburbs who can't get to their lake cottage nearly enough. We feel badly just letting it sit while we sweat in the bleachers of southeastern travel baseball tournaments. We are testing the waters with letting other families vacation in our home hoping they will love it and care for it as much as we do.

Maggie DeCan purchased this house in 2014

Why Maggie DeCan chose Blairsville

This property has everything a busy, water loving family could ask for including kayaks, canoes, ping pong, gorgeous views. Places to play and yell. Places to read and chill. Our motto is once you are at the lake, you stay at the lake, but if your motto is go, go, go there is lots to do and see in Blue Ridge, Blairsville, Murphy and the Chattahoochee National Forest.

What makes this house unique

Imagine sitting with your kindle on the screen porch watching your family members float in the lake, fish off the dock, gather twigs for tonight's fire, play badminton or wiffle ball in the yard. Of course not everyone in insight, because some went to walk a bit on the Appalachian trail and some are kayaking down Ivy Log Creek. Life is good on the Cove at Lake Nottely.

Located in the Chattahoochee National Forest there is lots of hiking and exploring locally. But it is also a great place to do nothing at all but swim, fish, plays games and make great family memories.
