About Shelagh Whitney

In 1990 we built our 'dream cabin' in Hayesville, NC and drove north from Atlanta almost every weekend until our full time move the summer of 2001. Leaving the craziness of the city, but staying within easy driving range of its energy, turned out to be the perfect move for us. With so many friends visiting and wanting a 'piece of quiet' themselves, it was on to real estate in 2002 where I spend most of my time today... Except when Mike and I are at home, still loving our 'dream cabin.'

Shelagh Whitney purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Shelagh Whitney chose Lake Chatuge

'Fernleaf Cottage' was actually bought as our future retirement spot. Although we do love our cabin Mike and I both grew up around the Great Lakes and couldn't see ourselves without a water view when we truly do retire to the porch! Being a Realtor I always have my eye out for properties that are a great value, with a great location and view! There was just something about this property that grabbed me the second I walked in and I knew that we had to have it in our future.

What makes this cottage unique

While you are, literally, only 2 or 3 minutes to the marina, restaurants, the movies, shopping and town when you are on that back porch you feel like light years from civilization! That's what so many of our guests have said that one of them wants to relax, read and hang out while the other wants to go, go, go... NOW! Everything is so close they can do both but get back together on a moments notice, AND, when you are so relaxed that you forgot the hamburger buns, you're out and back in no time at all! Plus, the cottage is very cozy as it was decorated for kick back enjoyment but NOT from yard sales!

Guestbook comments from the owner

You certainly do have one of the best rental cottages that we've rented! Very comfortable. Didn't need any A/C and the heat at night was a blessing. So many good restaurants, shops and artists. The people are so friendly and eager to share their knowledge. Thank you Shelagh for always being just a phone call away and for sharing all the wonderful treasures on your shelves. Great library!

Relaxing and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

Shelagh and Mike have done a great job with this cottage!!! All the comforts of home and more. When we weren't at the lake we spent all our time on the screened porch.

Great stay at Fernleaf Cottage....clean, comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great four night stay at Fernleaf. A very nice cottage. Clean, had everything we needed including excellent internet service. The screened in porch was perfect for drinking coffee in the morning and having a glass of wine in the evening. Close to restaurants, a grocery store and great hiking trails. We hiked at Brasstown Bald - where there are four trails. Enjoyed walking around Lake Chatuge on one of our rainy days. Kitchen was great for cooking, had most of our meals at the cabin including grilling in the evening. Shelagh was awesome to work with. I broke a drinking glass and offered to pay for it - she told me not to worry about it. King size bed was very comfortable. Fireworks were not too loud for our dog on the fourth of July. A great mountain getaway, highly recommend.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and surrounding area was just as described. Shelagh was quick to respond to every question or need that we had. Our two dogs enjoyed walking down the path to the lake.

The cabin was supplied with anything that you could possibly need during your stay.

We hope to return this fall! Loved it! Thanks for a Great Vacation!

Beautiful and quiet location to enjoy the Memorial Day Holiday weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this beautiful and quiet location. It had all the amenities we were looking for with beautiful lake and mountain views right from the screened in porch or open deck. Look forward to staying here again in the future.

Map

Just a couple of minutes outside of downtown Hiawassee, GA and about 10 minutes by the lake over the border to Hayesville, NC with it's Historic Downtown Square, multiple artists studios and large earthen dam. Head south fewer than 30 minutes to the Appalachian Trail or the unique alpine themed town of Helen, GA. Visit the Planetarium at Young Harris College, take a class in anything from blacksmithing to watercolor and everything in between at The John C. Campbell Folk School, enjoy live music, local vineyards, The Georgia Mountain Fair, and all of the outdoor activities you can imagine!
