Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We live nearby in Helen, Georgia and own this property as well as another adjacent house that we rent through VRBO.

Why the Owner Chose Water's Edge (Hiawassee, NC, USA):
We really enjoy mountain lakes, particularly Lake Chatuge and the North Carolina side of the lake. There is a lot of TVA and National Forest with great mountain views. There are many very good restaurants and activities in the area and some are available via the lake. This property sits on 4 & 1/2 acres with a large lawn area.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
We enjoy the Elf Community and having lake access and the pontoon boat is great for cruising around beautiful Lake Chatuge.
