About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 15)

“Nottely Escape” is anything but your typical cabin. Just completed in 2011, our 5 Bedroom, 4 bath (plus 2 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.

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 The Owner

Ken and Diane Schultz currently live in South Florida 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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Northeast Mountains

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.

Beautiful property with amazing Powners

  • 5 of 5

If you were to craft a template for the absolute ideal rental owners to assure renters the very best possible rental experience, you would start with the couple that owns this home.

If you need the space, there is no better property to rent than this one, anywhere in GA.

We most definitely will rent here again.

An Awesome weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered for my 80th birthday celebration...a very special event. The Shultz' home made it even more special. There was something for all, 19 - 80 years old. The home was beautiful, very clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable. Huge TVs and very comfortable sofas for watching football. Fully equipped kitchen for our meals. Exhilarating shower heads and very comfortable beds. Upgraded linens for every need. Games for any age. We had many pool, dart and cornhole contests. The landscaping was well manicured and beautiful. Evan a beautiful grassy area for the ladies to practice our yoga each day. The setting was breathtaking. We also rented the pontoon boat and spent many hours cruising the serene lake. Diane and Ken were very easy and pleasant to work with. The whole family voted to return next September for birthday 81.....if not before ! Thank you Ken and Diane. We are so blessed we found your lovely home.

Clean, well maintained, easy access to four lane, luxurious accommodation, owner's were excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We will want to stay here again in the future if Ken will have us back. Ken and Diane provided extremely good customer service before and during our stay even while they were dealing with hurricane Irma. Home is perfect for large family gatherings and plenty of work space in the kitchen. The large refrigerator holds group sized portions easily. Two sources (ice machine and refrigerator) of ice are extremely helpful. All the bedrooms are ample in size and we'll appointed. With the use of the garage there is plenty of parking.

A True Escape

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a few days at Nottely Escape and absolutely loved it! The house was well appointed and very comfortable. The views were amazing. We made use of the boat rental and had fun "cruisin" the lake. Ken and Diane were a pleasure to work with. We would definitely stay there again!!
