Property description

Welcome! We just added a new video virtual tour link below that makes us want to be there now! Enjoy...

Nestled amongst Hiawassee’s rolling hills and horse farms in the shadow of Brasstown Bald, Fodder Creek Cottage blends settlers charm with contemporary elegance. Built in 2007 and winner of five design awards, our mountain retreat provides a perfect getaway for relaxation and romance.

Ideal for couples or a small family, Fodder Creek Cottage accommodates up to seven people. The downstairs offers an open floor plan with gourmet kitchen, great room with stacked stone fireplace and a guest bedroom fitted with a queen-sized log bed, pull-out trundle, and full bath. The luxurious master suite encompasses the second floor, providing a sanctuary within. The suite features cathedral ceilings, stone fireplace, wet bar with microwave, and café seating for two. The king canopy bed was commissioned to reflect the trees viewed from the large windows. A daybed with mountain views creates an idyllic reading nook and sleeps an additional two. The suite also features two bathrooms: one for him with shower, and one for her with a tub and large vanity.

You’ll want to sit for hours on the flagstone and wood patios entranced by the rush of Fodder Creek and the canopy of mountain laurel. The property winds along 500 feet of creek front, with holes deep enough to bathe. Trout have been caught in these spring-fed waters. We trust that Fodder Creek Cottage’s soothing magic will leave you refreshed and restored.

Just minutes from the Cottage door you’ll find beautiful Lake Chatuge (3.6 mi.) with its abundant water sports, downtown Hiawasseee (6 mi.), providing an array of restaurants, shopping and music, and the Georgia Mountain Fair Grounds (8 mi.). Outdoor sports for every taste abound-- golf, hiking, canoeing, whitewater rafting and kayaking, horseback riding, etc. Short drives to the Bavarian village of Helen, historic Hayesville, and the Cherokee valley towns make Fodder Creek Cottage a perfect home base for exploring the region’s diverse charms.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My husband's family has roots in the area that go back to the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, so these mountains are special to us and our two small children. My husband teaches at Georgia State University and enjoys hiking and whitewater canoeing. I am a massage therapist and enjoy gardening and the vistas afforded by Hiawassee and Lake Chatuge. Our children love playing in Fodder Creek, the beach at Lake Chatuge, and eating at the family-style restaurants in Hiawassee.

Why the Owner Chose Hiawassee, GA, USA:
After a long search, we were thrilled to buy Fodder Creek Cottage as our special retreat for enjoying family, friends, and the beauty of the North Georgia and North Carolina mountains. We instantly fell in love with Fodder Creek Cottage's unique architecture and dramatic, creekside landscape. Every time the mountain vistas of Hiawassee and Lake Chatuge come into view our hearts lighten and bodies relax. We feel most alive when we're recreating amidst these old mountains, so close to our Cherokee and settler roots.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The cottage nestles so close along Fodder Creek that its rushing song will relax you day and night. The matchless beauty of its unique, award-winning architecture will fill your memories for long after. When you venture out, everything you need is near and easy-- beautiful Lake Chatuge (3.2 m), shopping and restaurants in downtown Hiawassee (5 m), the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds (6 m), and Bald Mountain Park (300 yds). Easy drives to outdoor activities of every kind and Helen, Georgia make this the ideal mountain getaway.
