Why Karen Harris chose Lake Chatuge

The Perch is only 1 mile to the town of Hiawassee Georgia. Located at a dead end road, feel secluded in this lodge-style home. Hiawassee is one of the most beautiful towns in the North Georgian mountain area. Escape from the chaos and hustle of larger cities. The photograph does not do the view justice, come and see for yourself.

What makes this house unique

This real log cabin has one of the best views in Hiawassee. Sit in one of the tall adirondack chairs that looks over the rail or relax in one of the cushioned chaise lounges for a perfect lake, mountain and sunset view. The home sits on a private, secluded lot at the end of a dead end road, FULLY PAVED with parking for 2 cars wide. Only 2 miles from the middle of town.

Beautiful and Relaxing

The view was amazing and the house was clean and comfortable! We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the balcony enjoying the view! The fireplace was great as well when the cool front moved in.

Beautiful view and enjoyed ourselves.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We got some much needed rest. Our little dog who is 8 enjoyed just laying on the porch napping. She went on walks too. We went to Brass town Bald A super big mountain and could see several states. All in all we had a great time. Karen is very helpful. Sandra Byers

Amazing view

  • 4 of 5

We all (people and dog) had a fantastic time at The Perch! The firepit was perfect for s'mores in the evening, and the view of the sky at night was amazing. It is incredible to be somewhere without all of the "light pollution" and actually see the stars and planets ... Mars and Saturn were viewable our first night, even without the telescope we found in the cabin. The really tall rocking chairs on the back deck were so much fun and let us see the whole view of the lake. The downstairs could have easily slept 5 more people with all the sofas and futons! This is the second cabin we have rented from Karen Harris and we were again very happy with the condition and amenities provided. Can't wait to book again next year!

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed in one of Karen's cabins, and this stay was as enjoyable as the first one. The view is amazing, and the cabin is very close to downtown Hiawassee while still being secluded. The only problem we experienced was that the DVD player broke, but Karen had us a new one there within a couple of hours. We love the area, and Karen's cabins is where I will look first when planning next year's vacation.

Why Did We Stay There?

  • 2 of 5

How do I start to tell of our experience......The week before we arrived for our two weeks, paid in full for the Perch, we were asked to move into an upgraded cabin called the Honey Lodge, due to the Perch cabin was having the kitchen cabinets varnished, which was okay, but we could only stay in this cabin for a week. This is where I find out the Manager, Karen Harris, is not the owner of the cabin property too. So, we had no choice and moved into the Perch for our last week, which the kitchen and cabin were not completely cleaned to my satisfaction and I ended up cleaning it, as to avoid being distributed by a cleaning crew. Also, we didn't received access to the cabin codes until the day we arrived within an hour of our arrival with limited cell phone service, unless you go back into town to clearly receive messages by email. By then at this point, I have basically cleaned two cabins upon leaving, which we are required to wash all the bed linens we used and remake the beds, take our trash to the dump facility, and still had to pay for a cleaning fee. All in all, I left both cabins cleaner than they were when we arrived, but the whole 2 weeks we were there, I felt we were hassled by texts from the Manager, Karen Harris, who I felt lied to us about getting a refund for having to move per the owners. Finally, I will say the Honey Lodge was very nice and a quite stay for the week we were there, and the Perch would have been just as nice, if it was cleaned properly and you didn't use any of the chairs in the closet, which are unstable causing one to break underneath with me, causing me injury and a severely bruised arm for a month after. Haiwassee, GA is a great place to visit and enjoy a vacation, but I would be very careful who you rent a cabin from while there.

Owner's Response: We appreciate this guest moving to an upgraded home at no extra charge. A kitchen cabinet staining maintenance upgrade was done at the home and the work took longer than expected. We let the guest move back to the original home 2 days early at their request. We respect our guest privacy and do not go back into a home once it is occupied. We were not allowed to come back into the home to verify and address any issues due to their request to move back 2 days early before a weekend. A refund was requested but our policy is "if issues arise we will make every attempt to address and correct an issue but no refunds are given. Since this review was submitted so late I am sure the guest forgot about the substantial discount for the 2 week period (which is like free cleaning more than twice) and even though we do not refund money, they did get a $20 refund as promised. The reservation was for 2 people and possibly extra beds were made after extra guest that stayed at the home not on the reservation. With guest staying 2 weeks or longer trash would need to be taken to the land fill unless other arrangements are made with our cleaning crew and we do provide trash bags. Starting the wash is only a request, not mandatory. If anyone chooses to do more it is greatly appreciated because it helps us keep our rates down. We take pride in our homes and greatly appreciate the business from our new and returning guest.
