About Judy Hays

My husband, Bradley Hays, is a General Contractor and builds custom homes here in Hiawassee and the surrounding areas. I handle the cabin business and work in a tea ministry group. In our spare time we like to travel. Bradley likes a good rod run from time to time and I love camping and reading. We both enjoy seeing families, relatives and friends visit the cabin for good times all around! Chocolate Lab Cheyenne is the newest member of our family; daughter, Stacey, her husband Edward and grandson, Tripp, live 3 hours away in Newnan, Ga. We would love for you to stay with us while visiting Hiawassee!

'Our view is a gift, let us share it with you!'

Judy Hays purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Judy Hays chose Lake Chatuge

We have lived in the North Georgia mountains for almost twenty years, settling in Hiawassee which is a lush, green haven in the mountains crowned by sparkling teal-green Lake Chatuge. The area we chose for our home is a natural for cabins and since my husband is a General Contractor and builds custom homes, it was a given. A Skyline Ridge Cabin Rental is nestled high on a ridge backed up to and overlooking the Chattahoochee National Forest toward Helen, Ga. We have had a dream of creating a cabin business here since we finished building our own home, just above what is now Skyline Cabin. The view from the cabin is simply put, 'eye candy'! Each season of the year adds its own special beauty which enhances this very special place. We are excited about achieving our dream. We would love to meet YOU! Feel free to call for a tour of the cabin anytime, 706-781-4929. Hope to see you soon~! Our view is a gift...let us share it with you!

What makes this cabin unique

Upon opening the bevelled glass front door and viewing the panoramic vista that first meets your eye you will be amazed! God was really showing off when he created these beautiful mountains! Of course, our rustic cabin will enhance your whole 'mountain cabin experience', it has all the amenities of home with the ambiance and feel of the mountains. The cabin, which is encircled by trees and very private, is alive with wildlife yet peaceful and quiet. Although it is 'out in the country' the location lends convenience to town only 5-7 minutes away. The Hiawassee River meanders at the base of the mountain, and, yes, you may fish! There are many things to do and places to see, plus shopping and restaurants nearby. We truly have a grand location! You can experience everything we have to offer, too, just give us a call today!

Beautiful view. Beautiful cabin.

  • 5 of 5

The view was beautiful and truly was a gift! Our family had such a wonderful time staying here. With all the hustle and bustle of the daily grind, it was great to be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful mountains. I'd invite you to look up at the stars at night too! That is a sight to be seen as well.

The cabin had so many wonderful amenities to make us feel right at home. From the second we walked in, we could tell that everything was well thought out. Everything we needed, was already there. We brought our two pups and they were greeted with dog bowls and doggie treats. They really appreciated that! The pups had so much fun running around outside, lounging on the back porch, and begging us for food from the bbq.

I would recommend having a 4 wheel drive to get up and down the mountain. We had a front wheel drive, and at one point on the mountain we really wished we had a 4 wheel drive. After a few times, driving up and down the mountain though, we got the hang out of it. There is one section you just need to get some speed on when you are in the gravel section. So please don't let this deter you. It's an extremely small price to pay for such an amazing cabin and view!

The nearby town was within a 10 minute drive north of the cabin. There you will find lots of shops, great restaurants, and Lake Chatuge. If you head 20-30 minutes south of the cabin, you will find Brasstown Bald (which is the highest point in GA). We had so much fun venturing out sightseeing. Everything we did was family and dog friendly. A definite plus!

All in all, I highly recommend this cabin. Beautiful view. Beautiful cabin. Beautiful town. Cabin life is good here at Skyline Ridge Cabin Rental!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect spot for a “getaway from it all”. It is within a few miles of restaurants, a theater, The Georgia Mountain Festival Grounds, hiking trails, Brasstown Ball and Bell Mountains and so much more. The house has a “spectacular view” and is an easy ride up the mountain. The owners have done a spectacular job with making the cabin a sweet home for a getaway. Everything you need is there for a relaxing week unless you just want to travel. We visited Dahlonega, Blue Ridge, Mercier Orchards, the Georgia Mountain Festival and Alexander’s. Most of all we enjoyed the rocking chairs on the porch and the view! Great week thank you to Judy Hays for all her help.

This place is visually beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were overwhelmed by the peaceful and scenic energy that wrapped itself around us. This cabin is beautifully crafted, well maintained, clean, very comfortable with tasteful furnishings and home decor. Every room is well stocked with all you might need for your stay. Judy has thought of everything and then some to make your stay enjoyable and just like home. One can't say enough about the view from the back porch. It was incredibly awe-insiring, peaceful, (except from the sound of nature) and the breeze was constant but gentle. It's close to so much from restaurants, shopping, sightseeing, activities and lovely mountain towns in both directions. We were blessed with "The Harvest moon" during our stay and the distant mountains and valley were so lovely in the moonlight., a sight to behold. Thanks Judy and brad for sharing your awe-inspiring top of the mountain and cabin with us. This may have been our first trip to the area but certainly not our last stay with you.

Almost Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience! First, communication with Judy was timely, polite and helpful. Directions to the cabin were perfect! And then, we walked in....oh my...the view was incredible. The cabin was fresh, smelled wonderful, kind of like freshly baked goodies. It was CLEAN and well maintained. Everything was just perfect. Close enough to all north Ga. activities.....if you want to leave. Enjoying the porch scenery was our favorite past time. AND I saw my first hummingbird (I'm from Florida). Will definitely be back. Thanks Judy and Brad!!!

Perfect Memorial Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Every aspect of our stay was perfect. From the communication during the booking process to all the details in the cabin, Judy and her husband truly made our stay amazing. The cabin itself is beautiful and had all the amenities that made us feel at home. We really enjoyed that we had relaxation and privacy due to the location but Hiawassee is only about a 10 minute drive down the road. We would definitely recommend this cabin and plan on booking again.
