About the property

5 bedroom, 4.5 bath luxury lake home on 1.3 acres with sunset views & dock

A luxury log cabin with open living areas designed to host big groups. With water views and direct lake access with the swim dock, take one of our paddleboards or Kayaks out on the water and enjoy sunset views from the screened porch, the dock or the deck. Enjoy the geese in the morning over a cup of coffee from one of the decks. Host a big family dinner on the large dining room table. Play games in the partially finished basement - perfect for big and little kids alike!

The Daring Horseman is located on year-long deep water on the northern end of Lake Nottely, near the Nottely Boat Club and Marina and Davenport Mountain. We're an equal drive to the towns of Blueridge or Blairsville. With nearby hiking trails, wineries, fishing and the water in your backyard you'll find you're short on time and long on relaxation. Grab a book and sit quietly, we frequently see deer, geese and ducks, or light a fire in the firepit and have social hour with your group. Lighting fast fiber optic internet, Direct TV and the game cupboard make rainy days fun. Minutes from the marina, you can rent a boat to cruise the lake, or take one of our kayaks & paddleboards out for a lap.

The enormous open floor plan features an inviting main family room furnished by a professional interior designer with high-end, furnishings, a huge stone fireplace and soaring two-story picture windows framing idyllic scenes of the lake and nature. An accommodating, large rectangular dining table seats ten to sixteen and just steps away is a granite island with room in the kitchen for several chefs wanting to join in on the preparation. Three of the five bedrooms feature on-suite baths and all have designer linens.

Here, in an ideal North Georgia location, the lakelife life awaits you. Daring Horseman is set up to provide one of the most memorable vacations of your life.

About Sandi Parker

I'm from the west coast and my husband is from Georgia. We both settled in Atlanta for our careers and to be near his family. I'm an interior designer so the home reflects a combination of my tastes mixed with inherited family furnishings and keepsakes.

Sandi Parker purchased this house in 2017

Why Sandi Parker chose Blairsville

I love water and my husband loves the mountains, so this home is the perfect mix for both of us. As busy professionals living in the city, we needed a quiet place to get away when time allows and it needed to be large to accomodate our extended families. This home is tucked off a residential road, nestled in the forest on 1.3 acres with a slope to the water - we couldn't have asked for a more perfect solution. We've travelled extensively our whole lives and lived in multiple cities so we've set the home up to be ready for visitors at a moment's notice, with games and water toys. Just bring your clothes and a bag of groceries!

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

The wife and I and six friends went up for the weekend between Christmas and NYE and had a nice time at “daring horseman”. Beautiful home, nicely appointed and plenty of space. The dinner table is HUGE and wifie reports the kitchen was good for making big meals. It was really cold when we were there, 10 degrees one morning and happy to say the home is well insulated and we wouldn’t have known how cold it was out if we didn’t go outside. They had recently put a new 4K tv in the den that looks great. We will go back, hopefully when the weather is better for enjoying the water.

Perfect for a Team Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our team enjoyed 2-days and 1-night in The Daring Horseman; a beautifully decorated and well-equipped home with lake views from almost every room. We all loved having fun in the water with the paddle boards and kayaks that the home offers. Sunset by fireside was a perfect way to end our day on the lake before heading up for general camaraderie of dinner, puzzling and watching the Atlanta United team bring in a win. Things to do and outdoor activities in the area appear to be endless; the owners have taken great care in making recommendations of assorted things to do. Before heading back to the real world, within a 5-minute drive, we took a lovely lakeside hike discovering cairns and beautiful shorelines with lovely dwarf ferns lining our path. I highly recommend this home and look forward to coming back to explore the area on an extended trip.

The perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful vacation in the Blue Ridge mountains. Your beautiful home was the highlight of our trip.

The kitchen is equipped with everything, the house is tastefully decorated and the beds are super comfortable. There are so many places to hang out both indoors and out. Lake Nottely was amazing - the kids caught four 20 lb stripers with our fishing guide Jeremy who picked us up on the dock!

The house was huge with plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy the amazing views. The house was clean, well stocked with essentials and the owners were great to work with.

Thank you for sharing your home! I would highly recommend it to anyone. We will be coming back again next year!

charming, spacious, comfy home w/ great lake view

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving weekend at this beautiful home with our extended family (My husband and 2 kids, brother and wife, and our parents). The owners have thought of everything. There was something for everyone from my 10 year old son to my 75 year old father. The home was beautiful, very clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable. The main level is open and the kitchen is well stocked with cookware and is large enough to have several people cooking at the same time.

The homeowners provided some outing recommendations, several of which we followed and really enjoyed including an afternoon of shopping and lunch in Blueridge and a nearby easy hike that was perfect for my aging parents as well as our kids.

It was chilly during our visit so the screened in porch and the living room fireplace were our favorite parts of the home. The bedrooms were big/comfortable and the linens so comfy. There was an outdoor patio and firepit under construction when we visited, can’t wait to come back and use the new outdoor facilities including the kayaks and paddleboards once the weather warms up!
