Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

NEW!! Our 2014 25 foot Lowe pontoon boat with fish finder is now available for rent with the cabin. The price is $300 per day, $500 for 2 days and $850.00 per week (plus tax).

Our lake getaway is the perfect place for a couple who wants peace and quiet or a family ready for adventure. The large picture windows and French doors let you see mist on the lake in the morning, watch the fishing boats as they quietly pass, and see the first skiers enjoying the water. The living area has a panoramic view of the lake without being too far from the water. Magnificent lake views can be seen from every room with a breathtaking mountain vista as the backdrop. Our cabin is across the cove from the US Forest service property so your view across the lake will be clear of docks. We are located at the deep water end of a wide cove which opens toward the main water of Lake Blue Ridge.

Our house comes fully equipped with everything you need from cooking supplies to linens. We provide soap, dishwashing detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, cooking oil, and even some spices. BRING A BEACH TOWEL FOR THE HOT TUB OR LAKE.

About Ralph and Lori Fowler

We live south of Blue Ridge near Marietta but our hearts reside at the lake. We often drive to Lake Blue Ridge for the day or a long weekend. Our three children have grown up tubing, skiing, and fishing on the lake and love to bring friends to visit.

Ralph and Lori Fowler purchased this house in 1996

Why Ralph and Lori Fowler chose Northwest High Country

My wife's great grandparents owned a mill on Star Creek a few miles from our house when the lake was being built in the 1920's and her grandfather often swam across our cove with friends as a teenager. 'We have always thought that Lake Blue Ridge is the most beautiful, yet private, lake in Georgia.

What makes this house unique

Our home is situated on a cove away from the main lake traffic and only 5 minutes by boat from the Marina or Morganton Point Beach and public boat ramp.

The water is clear. You can fish right from our dock for Walleye, Pike, Bass, and Bluegill.

Lovely Lake Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Lake Blue Ridge for a brief 3 nights and 2 days. This property was perfect! Water level and clarity was superb. The home's layout provided ample place for space between family members and the open great room, kitchen and dining provided closeness and togetherness. The perfect balance. Lori and Ralph were easy to communicate with and provided fabulous turn by turn directions and timely responses. We ate in every meal. Cooking breakfast was easy with ample pans and dishes. Lunch and dinner cooked on the grill with the propane gas provided and all the spices you could possibly need. This home was much better stocked with respect to kitchen supplies than other homes I've rented. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Everything you could want in a vacation

  • 5 of 5

Another Fabulous year at the Lake House! We all enjoyed the many features of the house, the large porch, fire pit, hot tub, comfortable beds, and living areas and games downstairs. We also enjoyed boating on Thursday, we were able to ride up to the Marina for a great lunch and tool around the extensive lake. We also got our fill of the Blue Ridge area which kept us busy, rafting, tubing, fishing with a guide, berry picking, hiking to waterfalls, ziplining, and hanging out on the rocks and pools at the Ocoee Center- all MUST Do's! Thanks you Ralph and Lori for sharing your beautiful home (and helping us with a pod chair idea for our daughter's room) and giving our family the opportunity for an amazing, hassle-free, outdoor vacation!

Amazing vacation home with stunning views of the lake and mountains:)

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home and had terrific week long summer vacation here. Everything you need to relax here - lake views, mountain air , fire place and a jacuzzi. The main reason we chose this home was because it is very hard to find a home that you can also rent their boat:). Walking out onto the dock and hoping in the boat was priceless. The lake is a gorgeous color and so refreshing to be able to swim and sit on floats right from the dock. We will definitely be back again.

Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we wanted and more. We were thrilled with how well stocked the house is. They really thought of everything and the boat worked out perfectly for us. We can't wait to come back next year!
