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.

Well let me start with the most important thing!!!! Ken and Diane were unbelievable. Extremely nice, response time with everything within 3 mins, very courteous with our needs, and have a breath taking home. We had our family reunion here, and it was the perfect house. From the beautiful interior, to the amazing views, we were in awe. I could have never thought by the pictures this place was so beautiful. We felt like we were in a huge castle, on a mountain, with beautiful blue green water sparkling down the hill. The landscaping, and home design is over the top. The outdoor fireplace, with a nice screened in area over looking the lake was my favorite. Thank you so much for making this our BEST REUNION EVER!!!

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed over Memorial Day this year (May 2017). 4 kids, 3 spouses, 6 grandchildren, and Parents (Us). Things could not have gone better, when we arrived the Home was beautifully prepared and welcoming. Ken says he is always available for questions or information, and he is. His check-in directions are easy and spot on! All the paper goods, towels, linens, etc were ready and our fun began. All the rooms were very spacious with Great Beds and mattresses. The Views from EVERY room are spectacular. You can see the mountains, forests, and lake.... The kitchen comes FULLY stocked with any or every appliance and tool you need for making memorable meals. Also there was plenty of seating for all of us between the Dining room and Kitchen table as well as the screen porch. The breakfast bar added great space for family members to direct me at all times on Cooking or Clean up tips! and we used the bar for our buffet for most meals!

The lake is gorgeous, cool, and clear. The neighbors were friendly and fun but not too nosey! We would surely rent this property again and again but we loved it so much, we decided to buy one of our own! Be Careful, Ken's home and the entire experience is addicting!

Thanks Schultz's for a Memorable Wonderful Week!

Great house on a beautiful lakefront location. Plenty of room for our group of 14. The house is truly first class, it had everything we needed. Kids loved the ping pong, fire pit and hot tub. The owners were great to deal with and were very organized and helpful.

A great place to get away from life's stresses and relax. You won't be disappointed!

We picked this house for our annual golf trip.

  • 5 of 5

This was our eighth annual golf trip and have stayed in luxurious houses throughout the States. This years house knocked it out of the park! From the layout to the fine details, not an expense was spared. It was the perfect balance of being on vacation and feeling like home. Ken and Diane went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Their local knowledge saved us time and made our vacation very enjoyable. The only downside to our stay was that the boat was unavailable due to low lake levels. Obviously that was out of anybody's control and we still had a wonderful time.
