About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath Lake Front House With Views Of The Lake And Mountains.

Sleeps 10, Amazing outdoor living area complete with kitchen, fireplace, TV, Music, Grill, Ice Maker and Bar. You will not want to come back inside but when you do, you'll find all the comforts needed for a wonderful stay. There is a dock which can accommodate 2 boats and/or jet skies just steps from the house. (This is a TVA lake and levels are controlled by the TVA.Typically from September - April, lake levels are reduced, restricting the use of the dock.) Three levels of decks two of which are screened in. In and outdoor dinning areas. Plenty of parking. Gated community with paved roads. Great fishing, hiking, site seeing, antiquing, dining, bars and restaurants. Only 8 miles from town. We found Blue Ridge 5 years ago and never left, we love it there.

About Gene Tallman

Megan and I are so happy to have found this home. Our children have always loved Lake Blue Ridge, we have always used VRBO to find locations on the lake and finally we found a place we can call home. We continue to enjoy the convienence of having a place thet we can get to in under 2 hours.

We have already enjoyed many weekend trips for tubing, boating, fishing and just plain relaxation.

Now we want to share the experience with you and your family.

Gene Tallman purchased this house in 2013

Why Gene Tallman chose Blue Ridge

If you are looking to getaway for the weekend or for an entire week you can't beat this location. It is close to Atlanta, Chattanooga, North Carolina and once you get here close to Blue Ridge. Unlike many lake homes, we are in a gated community with paved roads. The home is only steps from the water where you can park a boat or jet ski. Just 1 mile away are trail heads leading you to some of the most spectacular sites in NW GA. Moutain and Road bikers will love this spot as it offers some of the most challenging rides. Don't discount the opportunity to bring up a motorcycle as there is one of the best stretches of riding in the southeast. Relaxation is really the best part, grab a book and settle down in the outdoor living area.

What makes this house unique

Lakefront Luxury within 8 minutes of downtown convienence. Access to the lake and the mountains. Family time

The town of Blue Ridge is a great destination with all the attractions of a Southeast resort town. Excellent dining, great shopping, extensive outdoor activities from climbing to fishing. Our favorite restaurants are Cucina Rustica, Harvest on Main, Black Sheep and Joe's BBQ. Our favorite activities include ziplining, the appalachian trail and the hiking trails within 2 miles from the lake house. Within 5 miles of the Lake House, there are some of the finest fishing outfitters from fly fishing to freshwater fishing. Guides can be arranged to pick you up from the dock at the Lake House.

For grocery shopping, we recommend Ingles or the Wal-Mart Super Center both are within 10 miles of the house.

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. We were two families that had a combined 7 little girls. The place was very kid friendly and the outdoor space allowed for us all to have room to relax. The dock was great and we loved the kayak. We would definitely stay there again.

Easy access to downtown B.R. and secluded enough from neighbors

  • 5 of 5

Our third trip to Morganton area, & third different cabin rental. My wife, 5yo daughter & I. Knew it was way too much sq footage for our needs, but it was off-season and we took a chance.


- Approx 10min drive to downtown Blue Ridge

- Approx 8.5min drive to garbage drop off facility

- Like $0.05/lb (equivalent to county suburbia taxes)

- Right on lake & secluded from neighbors; no crowded feeling / "someone's watching"

- Excellent locale if you want to visit Mercier Orchards, various hikes/falls, Brasstown Bald, Helen, etc

- Paved road & large enough driveway to make comfortable 3pt turnabout. Driveway could fit 6 SUV's, if parked smartly...

- Key priorities for us were cleanliness, comfortability, cookware, & presentation

- Did not use the outside grill/fireplace/lounge area, propane vlv for the grill was already open for use (I closed vlv before departing, just b/c)

- Did not use the basement living area which hosts a bedroom with a bunk bed and twin, & another bedroom with a queen, a full bath to share between the two rooms, & a 'living room' space with a large sectional couch

- Sorta wished the comfy sectional couch below was actually in main floor living area in front of fireplace

- Main floor living couch, accompanying chair & lamp stand could be replaced with a smaller sectional to afford a more spacious relaxing experience, but the existing furniture is comfortable & intimate enough.

- Fireplace awesome, use it with common sense. Got wood from home depot

- Cookware, plates & utensils all in good fashion

- Added a few items to spice inventory & a bottle of olive oil. Spices last longer than expiry date, but just doublecheck before using, some were pretty out there, I should've thrown those out as there were duplicates anyway, but bottom line, they weren't mine to begin with

- Water gets hot quick, decent water pressure, used a sandwich ziplock bag & filled with distilled vinegar to relieve the main floor showerhead of its calcium vertigris. No biggie

- Master king bed comfy. Closed the heat vent louver since it's situated near head-side of bed & I get hot

- Didn't use master shower (since main floor shower bigger), so can't speak to it's pressure

- Washer, dryer & fridge good

Excellent stay, quiet & uneventful. I'm sure it'd be awesome during peak season when waterfront activities are at their greatest / temps permit. No issue with wifi or sat t.v. Owners are responsive & curt. We had a great stay, definitely recommend!

This house was amazing. Our family enjoyed everything about it. The only small issue we had was with trash, just because the garbage drop off was closed on our last day and morning that we were there, making it impossible to actually drop our final bit. Besides, that, the house was wonderful, and the owners easy to work with. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Theresa- Thank you for your review! We always strive for happy guests and satisfaction. We also wish there was a public garbage company that services the area. We hope to have you and your family again as a guest. Best, Megan
