About the property

Experience the sights, smells and sounds of total relaxation

Imagine yourself on a deck chair overlooking the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and sparkling Lake Chatuge. Spend the day hiking, kayaking, boating, golfing or shopping before enjoying an al fresco dinner under the stars, a dip in the hot tub, your favorite movie or a family game night. A stay at Limerick Lodge can make that dream a reality.

Our spacious lake view cabin can sleep up to 8 guests comfortably. It’s a beautifully decorated house with 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths (one on each level) with two additional single beds and a three sided wrap around patio to best enjoy the incredible views. Located just over the NC/GA line yet close to stores, restaurants and activities in the Hiawassee, Young Harris, Hayesville and Helen areas of North Georgia, Limerick Lodge is a perfect vacation getaway for families, couples and friends.

About Doug or Julie Caines

We are pretty much a typical suburban family that is fortunate enough to own a little slice of heaven in the Smokey Mountains. We love watersports, outdoor activities and weekends with food, family and friends and this cabin accomodates it all. We love spending weekends here enjoying the views, the stars, the sounds and the smells that make the NC mountains so relaxing. We named Limerick Lodge after the lovely and welcoming Irish town we were engaged in and hope you enjoy it as much as we do !

Doug or Julie Caines purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Doug or Julie Caines chose Hayesville

We searched far and wide for a vacation home with that perfect combination of location, luxury and lakeview. The very first time we pulled up to this cabin and saw this incredible view it was love at first sight. We wanted a rustic feeling cabin that had all of the conveniences, details and amenities you would expect from a newer property. We also wanted a location that gave us the feeling of being a million miles away but still close enough to enjoy on a moment's notice. We hope you too enjoy our cabin from what we think is the best vantage point of beautiful Lake Chatuge and the surrounding mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

It is close to everything around Lake Chatuge yet has all the privacy you would expect from a mountain cabin. Very roomy and cozy at the same time with space for both adults and kids to unwind. Limerick Lodge has incredible year-round lake and mountain views that can be enjoyed from all three levels of the cabin, a hottub, mobile firepit, xbox and movie collection, games and game table plus a kitchen stocked with tools for everything from steaks to spaghetti.

Awesome location and cabin

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. Doug ( the owners) was very helpful and responsive. We were a group of 6 and stayed for 2 nights , the kitchen was well stocked as well.

The drive for last 2 minutes is a little scary, through an unpaved road.

Exceptional home, not your normal mountain "cabin".

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely beautiful home with very nice furnishings; has much to offer. The view off the deck is so relaxing; the day starts with clouds in the mountains and clears to a fantastic view of lake Chatuge and the valley. Great location, close to many good areas to visit and shop if you choose; secluded enough if you just want to kick back and unwind; either way,you are in the right place.
