About the property

Guest House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to our Guest House on the Hiwassee River. If your looking for a quick recharge, an outdoor adventure or a romantic getaway we believe our place might just do the trick! Located halfway between the small towns of Murphy and Hayesville, also we are 2 hours from (Asheville, Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Grenville..).Finished in 2010 the Guest House is detached from our home, and is perched above the river, providing scenic views from the deck on a moderately wooded one acre lot with over 200ft frontage on the river!!!!. The Guest House is a 1 bedroom with a loft each with a queen bed and is finished with solid hickory wood floors throughout, spruce tongue & groove ceilings. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, microwave, refrigerator, solid granite counter tops and is stocked with everything you need to prepare a home-cooked meal. The bathroom is a glass enclosed travertine shower, granite counter top, and heated travertine floors. If the weather keeps you indoors, there is a 42 inch flat screen, DirectTv satelite, a DVD player with an assortment of movies to enjoy. We also have board and card games . You can enjoy your morning coffee or evening glass of wine, sitting on the deck letting the sound and view of the river do it's magic. Or head down to the river and enjoy a roaring fire roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Now the river is what brings most folks here, you can enjoy swimming, kayaking, tubing fishing etc, (we do not provide canoe,kayaks or float tubes)! Also we are located a 20 minute drive from Lake Chatuge, where you can rent boats for fishing, skiing, or just cruising the lake. If you have a four legged loved one we welcome guests that have (SMALL PETS) for a $50 additional fee.If you aren't familiar with the area, since we live here, we can help with any ideas of things to see and do during your stay. !! We look forward to sharing our piece of PARADISE here on the river with you.

About The Owner

We are originally from Ft Myers, Florida. Peggy is retired, and I am semi-retired. ( I spend the summer as whitewater river guide) We have 2 children and 4 grand children. We built our modest home here in 1985. Naturally family and friends love to visit so we found the need to add the Guest House in 2010.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2010

Why The Owner chose Lake Chatuge

We feel very fortunate to have found this little piece of paradise. Just the view of the river itself is so peaceful. The small town atmosphere is another reason we love it here.

What makes this cabin unique

The relaxing views and sound of the river , plus being able to just walk down and enjoying fishing, kayaking, and swimming are a nice bonus.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Peggy's & Lyndell's guest house is like new, beautifully furnished with easy access to the river and hiking. While always nearby, they respected our privacy, but were available if we needed anything. Touring the area can be fun with quite a number of opportunities to shop antiques and local flea markets. Downtown Hayesville is quaint and can be taken in pretty quickly. If you want to dig in and relax at a secluded cabin in the woods overlooking the Hiwassee, we highly recommend. Very peaceful with the sound of the river flowing by. The kitchen is very well equipped, so with provisions you'll have everything you need without going out. They also have a nice selection of DVDs and books, and the living room and outside deck are comfortably furnished. The loft is a kid's dream if you have children.

A real mountain gem!

  • 5 of 5

In a word; "LUXURIOUS".

Attention to detail is beyond any expectation.

Riverside = Relaxation at its finest.

Just what we needed without airports, busses and traffic.

The kitchen is well appointed and ready for any meal prep. You might want to pick up your favorite coffee, creamer and basic food items prior to arrival.

Lyndell & Peggy are perfect hosts who strive to make guests feel like family.

We highly recommend staying here whenever the mountain urge strikes.

Beautiful spot on the river, guest house itself is lovely!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 9 year-old daughter and I just returned from a great visit to Lyndell and Peggy's guest house. What a gorgeous spot on the river! We had a bonfire complete with s'mores, my husband fished and we all enjoyed soaking up the fall sunshine by the river. Loved that our dog was welcome as well. The guest house is sparkling clean and well-appointed. We brought prepared meals with us but could easily have cooked at the guest house as well given how stocked the kitchen was. Great getaway spot, will definitely return!

Thanks, Lyndell and Peggy!

This was my second visit to the Guest House and it was just as wonderful this year as last. As usual everything in the house was immaculate. The weather was actually quite cool so the windows were open --didn't have to use the air for almost 10 days. Being on the river is so relaxing--love the fact that I can leave my kayak down on the bank. Peggy and Lyndell are exceptional hosts. If you need anything they are quick to respond. It is also nice to know someone is close by, especially if you are by yourself. You have plenty of privacy but it is nice to know they are there if you need something. The cottage is absolutely beautiful--my cousin was here for a visit and she could not get over how lovely the place is. The only downside is having to drive through ATLANTA to get here--however again, Peggy came though and told me about a different route that circumvents that insanity. I will be trying that when I return next year!
