About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 14)

“Nottely Escape” is anything but your typical cabin. Just completed in 2011, our 5 Bedroom, 4 bath (plus 3 ½ baths) is prime lakefront property on Lake Nottely with views overlooking the lake and the highest mountains in Northern Georgia. Our home sits about half way between Blue Ridge and Blairsville in an area that is known for the wide variety of activities and ease of access. Private dock. Swimming cove. Deep water. Easy slope from house to lake. Easy access from highway.

Lake Nottely is one of the most beautiful and larger lakes in Georgia known for fishing and incredible boating with two thirds of the surrounding lakefront owned by the US Forrest service. It seems that very few people have heard about this TVA lake (and we want to keep it a secret :)). It is almost a private lake any time of the year!

While feeling incredibly peaceful and secluded, our home is incredibly easy to access – just 90 miles north of Atlanta and all highway driving. But with all the feelings of seclusion, you are only about 10 minutes to a super WalMart and very close to some of the most charming towns in the Southeast including Blue Ridge, Blairsville, Murphy, Young Harris. You will find endless opportunities from the lake to the mountains enjoying everything the Georgia mountain area has to offer.

While back at the home, enjoy the comfort of our modern surroundings and everything our home offers from our in-home entertainment to our hot tub overlooking the lake. Keep fit in our home gym with mountain views and relax by the fireplaces (we have 4) while enjoying our new 3D Satellite TV’s our even relax in the master Jacuzzi or steam shower in our “Suite 3”.

This home is perfect for family getaways and large enough to accommodate multiple families.

We built the dream home that one day will be our permanent home, but in the meantime, we hope that you and your guests will enjoy our home and everything the area has to offer as much as we do.

About Kenneth M. Schultz

Ken and Diane Schultz currently live in Greenville, SC and have fallen in love with the Georgia Mountain area. With 3 children we built out dream home a few years early that we hope others will enjoy. We are both involved with large law firm automation which keeps both of us occupied and on the road much of the year.

Kenneth M. Schultz purchased this house in 2011

Why Kenneth M. Schultz chose Blairsville

After shopping throughout the Southeast for lakefront property for over 20 years, we fell in love with Lake Nottely and the location between Blairsville and Blue Ridge. The beauty and privacy of the lake (two thirds of the surrounding property is US-Forrest owned) and the ease of access (all highway driving to and from Atlanta), make this the ideal location. We found what we felt was the perfect lot and we built our dream home. We just hope that others will enjoy the house, the location and all the area has to offer as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

When looking at the lake and mountain view from our home you get the feeling of being isolated and being 'one' with nature. The stars at night are so bright you feel that you can reach out and touch them. Yet all of this is just a few miles off the main road and just about 7 miles to the super Wal-Mart. Truly the best of both worlds! An incredibly easy to access location and as beautiful and peaceful as any place you will ever visit.

Fantastic Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had three families stay for the week and had a great time. The house is even better than the pictures. Great places to hike near by. Everything in the house is labeled to make things easy. Even little details like lights on stairs that come on from motion sensors so kids at night are safe. It was just great.

Superb Location and Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week during spring break in this massive, very well-equipped, well-maintained home. The layout of the home was perfect for my wife and I and our five kids ages 16-26. Each room was more than large enough, yet not overwhelmingly so.

Up to the day we arrived the weather forecast predicted rain nearly every day of our stay. However, the rain held off and we had a fantastic week. We stocked up at the nearby grocery to start the week and prepared meals in the massive, well-appointed kitchen. We used the grill and even enjoyed a couple of fires in the fireplace in the enclosed deck. Some of us fished, biked, hiked, explored, rode horses, zip-lined and shopped (the town of Blue Ridge is awesome). Back at the house, we played pool, ping pong and relaxed in the hot tub.

On the night before our departure we had even more excitement - we could hear the horrific sound of a woman screaming near the end of the driveway possibly in the neighbor's yard. My son and I drove up to investigate, flashlights in hand, but found no one or no sign of foul play. We finally realized it was the call of a bobcat - if you've never heard it sounds just like a woman in distress. The neighbors must have thought we were nuts chasing after a bobcat!

Diane and Ken (the owners) are very organized and service-oriented. Everything was laid out for us with clear instructions that took any guesswork out of how to find, operate or leave everything. We were equally impressed that every time we sent them a message, they would give a prompt reply within about an hour.

We would not hesitate to rent this home again in the future if we return to Northern Georgia. The location, amenities and excellent service make it a wonderful place to vacation.

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing up in the Smokey Mountains for the last 15 years and I have to say that your home was the most beautiful and so very accommodating. We had everything we needed for a magical Thanksgiving. Our holiday was made so much easier with the two ovens in your fantasy kitchen! I particularly loved all the gorgeous fireplaces throughout your home too. Every morning we loved watching the sun come up over the lake with the mountains in the background. Awesome view!! Thanks you again Ken and Diane for sharing your piece of heaven. Pat and Gary Phillips
