About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 8, 9 with trundle, 10 with sofa)

This is wonderful! I'm so glad we came! That's how you'll feel when you drive up to this fantastic, beautifully decorated mountain getaway on Lake Blue Ridge in the North Georgia Mountains.

Walk through the front door through the slate floor entrance, step inside the great room with vaulted pine ceilings and drop ceiling fans. Gaze around the large gathering room with Tennessee Fieldstone dry stacked fireplace, cozy seating, farm-style dining table and chairs for six to eight, game tables, and large fully-equipped kitchen with serving bar. Two wide sliding glass doors frame a breathtaking view of the lake. Step out on the generous Kentucky wrap-around deck, feel the mountain breezes, and drink in the expansive view of Lake Blue Ridge from this terrific vacation spot. Sip some iced tea while rocking on the porch or relaxing in the hammock. Enjoy mealtimes outside as well with seating for 12 or more.

Returning inside, the two downstairs bedrooms, one with king bed the other with two twin beds, have sliding doors accessing the expansive porch overlooking the lake. Both share a generous bathroom. Upstairs you will find the master suite with King bed and lots of floor space. The master bath boasts a generous Jacuzzi tub ample enough for two, two vanity sinks, shower, and private toilet behind louver doors. Just off the Master is a cozy bunk bed room with a trundle sleeping three. From the porch, a paved walkway takes you to the water's edge to the two-story dock with tie downs for boats and sun deck on the upside.


* Sleeps 9 in four bedrooms. Two king beds, two twins, two bunks with trundle, sleeps one in great room on the sofa.

* Two Bathrooms, master with Jacuzzi.

About Jan McKay

Hi there. Our names are Bill and Jan McKay from Dalton, GA. We have been married for 42 years and are parents of 3 grown children and one grandchild so far. Countless memories with friends and family have been made at this very special vacation home on the lake. Hope you will make some of your own at this wonderful place as well.

Jan McKay purchased this house in 1995

Why Jan McKay chose Northwest High Country

We bought this house while it was under construction. The layout was perfect with a massive porch and open interior great for entertaining lots of people. Loved the westward orentation and vast shoreline. We made an offer the first day we laid eyes on it!

What makes this house unique

The house has a relaxed feel. Many of the interior furnishings are hand made and one of a kind. I used a woodsy but fresh color palate and chose accents that would withstand design trends much unlike other lake homes I see.

My family and I rented this gorgeous home for 5 days over the July 4th holiday and had one of the most memorable experiences we have ever had. The kids are still talking about the fun they had white water rafting on the Ocoee River, seeing the movie at the Swan Drive-In and the many fun hours spent in the hot-tub and on the dock jumping into the lake. The house accommodate all of our needs and the surroundings were so relaxing. We'll definitely be back for more R&R.

Perfect lakefront escape!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group! (2 families of 4) The house is so cutely updated and makes for a great lakefront escape! It's only about 15 minutes to the adorable town of Blue Ridge. The back porch was perfect for hanging out on during the beautiful fall evenings and the kids loved walking down to the lakeshore. Blue Ridge has totally stolen our hearts and it's our dream to one day own a lakehouse of our own! But until then, we'll definitely be returning for more getaways at Jan's!!

Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

This property was very beautiful. The home had pretty much any and everything you would need in a stay at Blue Ridge. The dock was also amazing and most peaceful. Everything was well maintained and very clean. I would definitely recommend this property to all for a comfortable and pleasant stay in Blue Ridge.
