About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7), Private lakefront with dock

Family owned and operated – clean, comfortable, safe, quiet.
Hidden Cove Cabin sits on a large lot with over 200 feet of private deep water lake shoreline and grand old oaks and hickory trees. LIVE lake view WEBCAM FROM OUR LOT-See it on our website!

Wholesome family vacation or lakefront romantic getaway! Fantastic lake and mountain views.

-Early riser: savor a fresh cup of coffee at the wicker sofa on the covered porch with lake views and free hi-speed WiFi or wander down to the private dock in the morning mist and listen as the lake awakens with the rising sun.

-Reward yourself: enjoy a sunset glass of wine at one of the two indoor fireplaces, or at the private outdoor lakeside firepit – marshmallow roasting for dessert with incredible mountain views!

-Make a day of the lake: take the kids for a picnic, or relax in the sun or shade on the large private floating dock. Or rent a boat or jetski from one of our many local vendors and explore the 132 miles of Lake Chatuge Shoreline. Don’t forget your fishing pole – there’s a reason fishing tournaments are regularly held on this lake!

-Enjoy the great outdoors: swimming and fishing from right off the dock, dozens of great hikes within minutes of the cabin… great for kids! Or catch up on that book you’ve been wanting to read …large mature oaks shade benches and swings throughout the property.

-Back to the cabin: use the BBQ to grill up the fish you caught today, and then pop some corn for movie night on the wide screen TV!

-Stay in… game room, darts, foosball, air hockey, library and board games, covered picnic area, two large Satellite TV, DVD player, free high speed fiber optic WiFi, fully equipped kitchen.

-Or go out… golfing, river rafting, fly fishing, evening town square concerts, seasonal County Fair, restaurants, cinema, arcade, go-karting, horseback riding, scenic road trips and waterfalls, so much to see and do!

Area adventures (all within 2 hours): Appalachian Trail, Brasstown Bald (just 12 miles away, it is the Highest Point in GA at 4,784'), John C. Campbell Folk School, Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate, Helen (replica Bavarian town – a local must-see!), Mineral mines, Smokey Mountains National Park, and definitely make a point to ride the on Smokey Mountain Railroad!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Hi, we are Joe and Lin. Until fifteen years ago, we lived in Iowa dreaming of a southerly retreat during the long Mid-Western winters. We dreamt of a place that would offer us a climate we could actively enjoy year round, that our grown children would love to visit, yet also a place that would create great memories for our young grandchildren. For us that means hiking, fishing, lakes, more fishing, relaxing views, community festivals and plenty to do outdoors – like fishing! Murphy, North Carolina is now our adopted home and we are pleased to say, our kids and grand kids all love it here!

Why the Owner Chose Hayesville, NC, USA:
On our first Appalachian vacation many years ago we found the getaway we (then as Mid-Westerners) had always dreamt of: mountains, lakes, temperate weather, sweeping views, and welcoming all-American neighbors. This lake house has all of these and everything else we love about North Carolina living. It gives us a way to share with our family and with guests from all over America and the world what we love about our chosen home. It is our family’s pride to pass on this experience on to you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Unparalled relaxation, and one of the best docks on Lake Chatuge. Championship level fishing, almost 200 feet of private deep water lakeshore / beach. Amazing mountain vistas and sunset views from the elevated private lakeside firepit and covered porch. Really fast wifi! This lake gave us the best of what the area had to offer: full access to a world class fishing lake with the privacy and tranquility of being in a cove. Great views of the mountains framed by trees. Family owned and operated with pride.
