A slice of Canada in the far Northeast corner of Georgia with mature hardwoods: tall white pines, spruce, hemlock and fir trees . The house is settled on a slope with 100 steps through woods down to boathouse, and close to dirt road behind it. Property includes buffer of over 8 steep forested acres on Mt. Macy across dirt road .
The two story boathouse sits on the lake, complete with a partly covered upper deck plus adjoining dock with slide and swimming cove. Great for entertaining or enjoying cocktails while watching the sunset over the Georgia mountains.
Boathouse comes with a canoe and 2 kayaks, but power boats and boathouse boat hoists are EXCLUDED. Power boats and ski do's may be rented separately from independent boat rental companies, and attached to dock by two sets of (outside) boatwhips on either side of the boathouse during the rental. The boathouse offers a perfect setting for a hot summer's day swim, relaxing on floats, or fishing off of the dock. The boathouse also offers a slide, fun for young children. There is a tiny beach area in the foliage behind the dock on which the slide is located, where supervised young children can play in shallow water. Otherwise the water is 37 feet deep off the boathouse. .
Birdwatcher's paradise: wide variety of birds come to the feeders, and if you are quiet about an hour before midnight, the fearless FLYING SQUIRRELS will quietly swoop in to the feeders on the broad treetops deck, often in groups.

But this property is not for hunters.
