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.

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 our 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 Morganton

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.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic Family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Jan's lake home was the perfect setting for our family's Thanksgiving. We loved the fully featured kitchen. It made for easy and fun holiday meal prep. With the mild weather, we made full use of the outdoor porch during the day and the fire pit at night. Nearby Blue Ridge provided a fun place to eat and shop when we wanted to leave the lake. Clean, modern and spacious, the home is just as advertised on the website. We would love to return one day and can't recommend Jan's house highly enough.

It’s a wonderful lake house and has great character

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time attending a wedding up at Spyglass. This house was a perfect location for our group as it was local to everything we needed. The house is fantastic and very comfortable and we would love to come back in the spring or summer.

Upscale Country Living

  • 5 of 5

Family enjoyed this very nice lake house for an October weekend. Kitchen has everything needed including 2 coffeemakers to keep the coffee coming while sitting on the porch overlooking the lake. Bathrooms are updated. Easy drive over to the town of Blue Ridge for great restaurants, shopping and the scenic railway. Would definitely rent this place again......and I don't often say that.

Lovely Cabin

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely little cabin with a beautiful view and a gorgeous big rocking chair porch. The homeowner was lovely and very accommodating. Be aware that you need to bring your own towels, and that you need to make the beds on arrival, but the sheets are provided. My family wished we could stay longer.

Charming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We were not disappointed in the ambience, inside or outside. Lovely views, comfortable furnishings, and well-stocked kitchen. Instructions from the owner made everything easy. We did not spend time in Blue Ridge, except for dining. Harvest on Main and La Cucina Rustica were excellent! We would definitely chose this location again.
