About the property

Luxury, Fully Appointed Cabin w/ gorgeous views! 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

"Our 3rd fall stay at Bella Vista Cottage was just as wonderful as our first and second! We stayed five days and traveled throughout the region during the day while coming "home" at night to cook in the well stocked kitchen and enjoy the fireplace. The view from this cottage is one of the best - mountains and the lake! Monica and Ed have thought of many details to make you feel that you are staying at a friend's home, not just a rental unit. This is the place to go to relax and unwind! - Pam and Clay W., Metairie Louisiana"

Just 2 hours from Atlanta GA, Chattanooga TN, Asheville NC and Greenville SC, our home “Bella Vista” (Beautiful View) is the perfect destination to get away from it all. Overlooking the Great Smoky Mountains and nestled among 3.5 quiet acres, our private cottage has views of the mountains and Lake Chatuge.

Please take a minute to click on REVIEWS to read what recent guests have said, and click on the VIDEO tab to the left above the photo to take the Bella Vista virtual tour inside and out! At Bella Vista, we want you to simply bring your clothes and relax. All the small things are provided for you... hair dryers, (even curling irons), hotel toiletries, bed, bath and kitchen linens, laundry and dish soap, paper towels, napkins, foil, spices, kitchen staples such as coffee, tea, flour, sugar, and much more.

Bella Vista Cottage is for couples and friends who will appreciate all the creature comforts of home while spending time in our smoke-free, PET-FREE and NEIGHBOR-FREE, cottage in the mountains. Enjoy a spring rain shower under the covered porch, a breezy afternoon on the open deck, or take a short drive to Brasstown, the highest peak in Georgia, where you can take in breathtaking views of four surrounding states.

By day, explore the spectacular mountains, and many other activities in the area. By night curl up with your favorite book, movie or board game. Bella Vista truly has something for everyone. Ask us about our seasonal & military specials!

"Our stay at this beautiful home was just perfect. We enjoyed the views, which differed each day. We enjoyed hiking, as well as visiting numerous interesting stops in the region. Above all, we enjoyed the peace of mind that was possible simply because we had rented from excellent owners. Monica and Ed provided everything we would need. Their care for their home transcended to us, the tenants and that meant lots. We highly recommend Bella Vista Cottage and look forward to returning in the near future. - Raul A."

For those with flexible schedules, why not take advantage of our Bella Vista Cottage Mid-Week Special? Check-in on a Sunday and stay four nights for the price of three! Standard nightly rate is $150 / Holiday periods are $170 per night.

Info about the area:

With a 128 miles of shoreline, Lake Chatuge is beautiful and clean and ideal for swimming, boating and fishing. Boat and jet-ski rental is available just a half-mile away, and Bella Vista is located less than 5 minutes from two marinas on the shores of Lake Chatuge. Nearby Jackrabbit Campground offers a public boat launch, picnic areas and a beach swimming area.

For the land lover, there are local wineries, antique stores, horseback riding, restaurants, shopping, plenty of hiking trails, and two 18-hole golf courses nearby. Enjoy events, concerts and festivals year round in downtown Hiawassee, the surrounding areas, and the GA Mountain Fairgrounds. However, the real appeal of Bella Vista is the peace and relaxation you’ll experience just absorbing the view from the comfort of this luxurious cottage.

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 Lake Chatuge

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had such a wonderful time at Bella Vista! We picked wild blackberries at the edge of the yard and thanks to the well-stocked kitchen were able to make a homemade cobbler for dessert. We fished in Lake Chatuge, played games and watched movies, even rented a boat to spend a day of fun on the water. This retreat is just that, a place to renew, reconnect and relax - no neighbors in site, except a rascally raccoon and some lovely hummingbirds. If you're looking for beautiful and peaceful - you'll find it at Bella Vista. Thanks for sharing your slice of heaven with us!

A mountain hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and feel like we've found the perfect location and vacation house for us. Monica and Ed have put their hearts into decorations and amenities. It is very secluded and away from any noise or people which for us spells peace. It is clean, air conditioned, well stocked and near lakes and a couple of small towns. The deck is a place of pure joy for enjoying a pristine mountain view as it changes throughout the day. We hope to return again and again.

What a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect getaway! We had everything we needed at this mountain retreat. It was so relaxing sitting on the deck. The first floor bedroom and bathroom with walk-in shower was very "senior friendly" and perfect for my mom. We look forward to staying again soon. Thank you for sharing your mountain home. Maria & Gloria

loved the stay and the beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The weekend getaway to Bella Vista was an amazing experience, and everyone in our group had a great time and loved the beautiful view from the house. This house is close to lot of attractions like wine tastings, horse riding , hiking and of course the lake Chateau . However, we ended up spending more time relaxing and enjoying in the house than outside. Must say that house was fully stocked with everything we needed starting from the spices to the pans to toiletries and trash bags, didn't have to go do the typical run for toilet paper and small amenities thats are always annoying while renting a cabin .

Monica and Ed were amazing hosts, they reach out to us and made sure we had all the information we needed. They were very responsive to any questions we had and went the extra mile to make sure we had fun staying here. We would recommend this place to every one who is looking for a place to relax and spend time with nature and family.

Best mountain view around

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving we were already feeling this was a great idea. This house was so beautiful inside & out, the lay out is so conveniant. Everything is labeled & organized in a way that just makes everything easier. They even have a binder with ideas of things to do, & great foodie places. They themselves are very helpful with anything you need. The views from the house are just as beautiful of those if you were to hike up a mountain top... Breathtaking and beyond words.
