About Lori High

Hello from the High Family. We would love to share our log mountain home with you located on beautiful Lake Nottely. Great fishing. Dock has a wide area to jump off of into deep lake water. 6 man hot tub on screened porch with outdoor ping pong table located on the lower deck. Lots of open space in home. You can all be together or find your separate areas.

Lori High purchased this house in 2007

Why Lori High chose Northeast Mountains

We love this lake! Surrounded by forest land on 3/4 of the lake the boat traffic is almost non-existent You see I have teenagers! They like to go on the jet ski and I don't worry that they'll run into other boats! Fishing is rated the best in Georgia.

What makes this house unique

Two covered screen porches allow you to be in and out all day. The dock has a great swim platform and we always have deep water. We have a hot tub and ping pong table on the lower screened porch so that you can enjoy your time away.

The deck that overlooks the lake has a fire pit with chairs around it. Great way to end the evening with a roaring lake front fire and s'mores.

This mountain lake with deep, clear water is a perfect place for jet ski fun while taking in the surrounding scenic views Lake Nottely is 20 miles long and has 4,180 surface acres at normal summer pool elevations. Construction of Nottely Dam began in 1941 and was completed in 1942. The dam is 184 feet high and stretches 2,300 feet across the Nottely River. Nottely has a flood-storage capacity of 100,000 acre-feet. Water levels vary by about 32 feet per year with full pool at 1,779 feet. The Chattahoochee National Forest, which borders a substantial portion of the lake, adds to the scenic quality of the area.

Great house great Lake hill is really steep. Not good for kids or physically challenged

  • 3 of 5

House is beautiful. Great open kitchen. Easy for larger group. Fire pit is wonderful. Lake and views are amazing. The hill is steep. The golf cart is not really made for the hill. It helps but ... no beach or shallow area for kids. Impossible for anyone who has any physical challenges to get out of water.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Please view our video to determine if the hill is right for your or not. I am in normal physical condition and can walk it fine. We do provide a golf cart and it is a paved path to the lake. If you are a guest that is no in normal physical condition the golf cart is provided

A great house on the hill, room to spread out from ages two to sixty-nine

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family (from ages two to sixty-nine) just spent 4 nights/5 days at Black Bear's Den and we really enjoyed our stay. The screened in porch was our favorite gathering and eating spot -- breezy and protected from bugs, with just enough lake view to remind us where we were. The pontoon boat was the most beloved feature -- our teens learned to tube behind it and wore themselves out daily. The house was very clean and the beds were comfortable and the showers were strong and hot, the A/C worked like a charm when we needed it, and most everyone soaked in the hot tub at least once. The path to the dock is indeed steep -- the golf cart is very necessary for those of us not in our physical prime or toddlers. Lake Nottely is truly charming (especially compared to the craziness that is Lake Lanier) and I can easily see us returning yearly. Thanks for a great house in which we made great memories!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and helping others understand the features of our home. We hope you will come back and enjoy for many years to come. We do have a paved hill and provide a golf cart for your usage. I support for toddlers and those not in regular physical condition the need for the golf cart. However, my husband and I are getting older and find it to be a regular climb up the hill for those in average physical condition. Kids of course can run up it! We do have a hill for sure and the pictures and video accurately reflect it. Please watch the video to determine if it will work for you and your family/friends.

Our two daughters and husbands, and three granddaughters had the best family vacation ever at Black Bears Den on Lake Nottely. The home was just what we needed. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Totally functional for any meal you might want to cook. The set up of bedrooms and baths were perfect. Add in the pontoon boat and golf cart and you had everything for a perfect vacation. We had some rainy days but that added fun time for games around the large dinning table.The lake was beautiful and we enjoyed several days of fun in the sun and water from the dock and the boat. Will definitely plan another vacation to Black Bears Den.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded our expectations. There was ample room for everyone, we had a group of 10 people. One evening we celebrated a family birthday so an additional 10 people came over for dinner and no one was cramped, plenty of space.

Our favorite part of the house was the dock, boat and lake. The lake was a very quite lake and we were there Memorial Weekend. Having the option to rent the boat and for a very reasonable cost is what sold us on the house. We spent every day lounging outside.

Also, the beds were very comfortable. You will not be disappointed in this property!
