About John Pidgeon

We live in Marietta GA where we are very involved in our church and school activities Sabra is a liscensed Georgia Realtor and can help with any real estate needs.

John Pidgeon purchased this cottage in 2012

Why John Pidgeon chose Water's Edge

Beach vacations are great but we just love the lake. We have enjoyed many lakes in the southeast but the first time we visited Chatuge we knew we had found the perfect lake.

Our house is located in the Water's Edge Community and we chose to build here because we wanted to enjoy all of the beauty and amenities it has to offer.

Within 2 and a half hours of our home in Marietta, it is easy to get to and a scenic, therapeutic drive along the way. The views from the lake of the surrounding mountains are truly remarkable and unique. The lake is large but not too crowded. We feel safe as we enjoy a variety of water sports.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage home has a layout that really works well for our family. It is new, well built, crisp and clean. It is comfortable and with enough room for everyone to have space to relax. The views are even more stunning than when we began construction. Close proximity to the water is a real plus. The more we visit Lake Chatuge, Hayesville, and Hiawassee, the more amazing things we find that there are to do.

Great house and relaxing setting!

  • 5 of 5

This is my family's second year to visit this property at Lake Chatuge. The house is welcoming and offers a fully equipped kitchen. The pool table, ping pong table, wii, and outdoor fireplace offers something enjoyable for any age. The back deck overlooks large yard space for children and a gentle walk to the Lake. Nearby Hayesville and Haiwassee offer good eating and small shops.

We definitely plan to stay again!

Great Thanksgiving getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this house. It was perfect! We enjoyed ping pong and pool in the loft and bonus room. The beds were extremely comfortable and I loved having 2 master bedrooms since it was my family of four and my in-laws. Both bedrooms have beautiful views of the lake. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need including a crock pot - perfect for a roast! Everything in the house worked as expected.

If you stayed in rentals that left you a bit irritated with things like not enough toilet paper, a dishwasher but no dish-washing pods, or barely enough kitchen utensils to cook anything, you will LOVE staying here as this house has none of those issues. It was perfect.

John was easy to work with and responsive when we had questions. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to this area!

Amazing vacation in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked this house for a trip that was scheduled last year. Unfortunately, due to the fires, the smoke in the area was aggrevating my asthma and we had to turn back. The owner was so understanding of our situation and worked with us. Because of that experience we had with him, we decided to come back during spring break. Our one regret is that we didn't stay longer.

This home sits on an amazing piece of property with beautiful views all around! The house itself is new, clean and with all the comforts of home and then some! Wish it was warmer during our stay so we could have enjoyed some more water activities.

This home is stocked up with everything needed for a good time! You won't regret booking here! We are already planning when we can come back again.
