About Monica Ricci (and Ed)
We are a professional couple with no children, who love getting away to the peace and serenity of the mountains. We also enjoy sharing relaxing fun times with family and friends. Bella Vista Cottage is the perfect place for us to spend time with people we love & we feel blessed to be able to share it with others. Our home is our sanctuary and on 3.5 private acres, surrounded by natural beauty, it can't be beat. Songbirds, hummingbirds and wildlife are frequent visitors to our getaway retreat and when we're there, we feel so at peace and relaxed. We know you will too!
Monica Ricci (and Ed) purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Monica Ricci (and Ed) chose Hayesville
We looked at homes on other lakes in both the Carolinas but when we saw the Lake Chatuge area, we immediately knew this was the lake for us! Surrounded by mountains, it was the most beautiful lake we had seen and there is so much to do in the immediate area. Our home is located on 3.5 private (mostly wooded) acres in a nice, quiet, high-end community, which we appreciate. We enjoy sharing our fabulous find with others and hope you'll love it as much as we do!
What makes this Cottage unique
Bella Vista Cottage is located on 3.5 wooded and private acres, yet it's easy to get to with any kind of vehicle. We have gorgeous views, lots of windows, and no visible neighbors. We are six miles from Hiawassee, 25 minutes from Crane Creek Winery and there is a lot to do in the area, including boat rental and other lake-related activities. Our home offers all the creature comforts of home in a beautiful mountain setting we know you'll love!

The house is beautiful and well appointed. The view of the mountains is million dollar. We were even blessed to be visited by a mama deer and her few week old fawn. We really enjoyed our stay and the owners were great to work with. There were also lots of hummingbirds at the feeder on the deck. Didn't see any bears at the property, even though they are around there, but we did see a bear cub close by.
Gorgeous views in a private setting...
Totally relaxing, from watching the sun rise over the mountains, to having a cocktail in the evening with a cool breeze on the deck. Convenient to restaurants, hiking to waterfalls, and beautiful Lake Chatuge!
Thank you for such a lovely review! We're thrilled you were able to visit and we look forward to your return to Bella Vista. The mountains are wonderful in any season of the year!

Living in Columbia, SC, we were looking for a reasonably priced, nice place to stay on a fairly regular basis when we come up to visit our grandbabies. Bella Vista turned out to be the perfect answer to our prayers. If you're looking for a comfortable and affordable vacation spot, Bella Vista could be the answer to your prayers too.
This charming little house in the mountains has everything you need to relax and recharge...all the comforts of home and some extras too! A warm, cozy fire on a cold mountain day -- this house has it. Maybe starting your day with a steaming cup of coffee, outside on the deck while being serenaded by a chorus of birds is your style -- this secluded little spot has this too!
A beautiful two bedroom (one is a loft with a FABULOUS view) house, this is the perfect size for a couple or two (we've brought my parents up) to hang out and enjoy all the charm of the surrounding mountains and Chatuge Lake. Antique shops and restaurants abound nearby, but I have to say I love cooking in this kitchen. It is the best organized and most efficient kitchen I've experienced. The beds are very comfortable and linens and towels are always clean, fresh, and plentiful.
Overall, this has become my favorite place to come to relax and recharge.
We are so grateful that you found us and continue to come back! We love knowing that we provide a wonderful experience and we're blessed to have such wonderful guests like you two! :o)
