About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautiful 4 bedroom/3 bath cabin in the north Georgia mountains with breathtaking views of Brasstown Bald, the highest point in Georgia. Convenient location! Enjoy fishing and boating on Lake Chatuge, or take a beautiful drive over the mountains to Helen, Georgia for river rafting in the summer or Octoberfest in the fall. Enjoy the many restaurants and shopping in the quaint town of Hiawassee, or visit nearby wineries along the North Georgia wine trail. Better yet, enjoy the beautiful views from one of 3 decks of this spacious cabin, or just relax in the hot tub outside. Unique rock work, pond and gardens make this a lovely outdoor retreat as well. Plenty of room for a large family with children, or perfect for a couple looking for a quiet weekend away from the stresses of city life. Come and enjoy the serenity of this beautiful mountain home.

About Mark F. Krause

My wife and I purchased this house in April of 2007. One year later after an approximate $100,000 in renovations, additional landscaping and furnishings, we opened our vacation home for travelers around the world to enjoy! Our original intent was to enjoy this property in the spring and fall, but we have found that the winter and summer months are spectacular as well. Please enjoy our home and the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains!

Why Mark F. Krause chose Lake Chatuge

Our vacation property was built on the side of a mountain at approximately 2,600 feet and has a $1,000,000 view. This property is close to Lake Chatuge, Downtown Hiawasee, GA, Historic, Helen, GA and Brasstown Valley Resort. We are also within two hours driving distance of Maggie Valley, North Carolina for winter sports.

What makes this estate unique

Very secluded, family-friendly, private property with fantastic mountain views! Too many amenities to list!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A group of six guys came up for the weekend to enjoy some golf, hiking and local fishing. This cabin was amazing! This was a last minute booking and after a lot of price comparisons, we made a great decision for our accommodations! The owners put a lot of detail to the decorating and landscaping and there are too many amenities to mention! We enjoyed watching sports on the new 55inch LG TV mounted above the fireplace. The hot tub was positioned next to a beautiful outdoor rock fire pit! There are three levels to this cabin with a private deck for each level. Several members of our party enjoyed the screened sleep-in porch adjacent to the game room on the lower level. Boundary Waters Marina was a short drive from the property where we were able to rent a boat for Saturday fishing.

The owners were a joy to work with and they recommended several local restaurants and golf courses for our entertainment.

Many of our group plan to come back with our families for an extended vacation. All-in-All, we had a great weekend and would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great mountain vacation in the Northeast Georgia Mountains!

Stayed at this cabin with girlfriends this weekend. Great house with just about anything you could want. Enjoyed the hot tub, fireplace, and the firepit, the porches with their views are fabulous. Close to stores and restaurants if you want that, but far enough away to forget it if you want.

Even Better than the Pictures

  • 5 of 5

This was the nicest cabin rental I've ever booked. My family just visited from Chicago and we spent 1 week in this amazing cabin. Not only is the cabin fantastic, but there is so much to do nearby. There's a public white sand beach at Lake Chatuge and amazing waterfalls you can hike too within a 20 minute drive. I really enjoyed the screened in sleeping deck. It rained several of the nights and it was very cool to sleep outside in such a beautiful setting.

Wonderful Place to Stay for Easter!

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a stay at the House of Krause for Easter. This cabin in very beautiful and comfortable. We slept better than we had in a while! We would love to spend another vacation here. Hiawassee is our favorite place to be. We also love Alexanders and Rib Country, they are my family's favorite.

Look no further. The most beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We were privileged to stay at this immaculate cabin in July. It is decorated beyond belief. I expected Architecture Digest to show up at any minute with photographers in tow. There is a mountain cabin/bear theme that makes you believe you've been whisked off on a luxury vacation. There's a Master with a great balcony and private bath, a bedroom on the main floor with a full bath and access to the balcony. Downstairs are two bedrooms. One has a private cosy feel, which would be great for teens or for parents watching kids in the next door bedroom that had bunk beds and a twin. There is a game room with a comfy chair that fold in to another twin. There is a full bath on this floor, too. Then as an added surprise there is an unbelievable screened in porch/bedroom area with a full and twin bed. The porch bedroom is magically decorated, and I can't wait to return in the Fall to sleep under the beautiful quilts. We live in Florida, and this was an easy drive to a location that felt thousands of miles away. The main living room has lots of seating and is beautifully decorated. Added is a large dining area, additional seating in the kitchen, and the kitchen is huge. Outside continues with beyond expectation landscaping, fire pit and seating, and even a hot tub. Although it's really close to cute little towns like Helen, we never left this amazing cabin. The Krause family are delightful, and you won't regret selecting this cabin.

What a wonderful stay! I cannot imagine a better cabin to vacation at, perfect amount of rooms for all of our party. Beautifully decorated an incredibly nice kitchenware. The most beautiful view I've ever seen, loved the fairy houses set up, what a wonderful addition for children and adult fairy lovers alike! Great assistance from FANTASTIC homeowners. Overall, a perfect visit. One down side, having to leave so soon!
