About owner/property manager

We were married in 2010 which left us owning 2 homes. We currently live in Cornelia, Georgia, just about 17 miles from this beautiful mountain home. My husband grew up in Illinois and lived in Tampa for 40+ years. He retired and built his dream mountain home in 2001. I grew up in Cornelia, Georgia, and have lived here all my life. I still work as a local realtor and love this beautiful area of the south that I call home. So, if you decide you would like to live here, I can help you with that, too! We are usually nearby, so if you encounter any difficulties, we are available to help.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2001

Why owner/property manager chose Clarkesville

All the years that my husband was working in Tampa, he and his family always traveled in and around NE Georgia. He bought the land this home is constructed on in 1987 and looked forward to the day he could call this area home. This was his dream come true when he built this home.

What makes this house unique

The mountain view was the major attraction for my husband. When he was looking at this land he actually climbed trees to see what the view would be from the house site. Add to that a safe and quite community and he had found what he was looking for.

beautiful mountain home with lake view in clarkesville GA

  • 5 of 5

Great time even when it rains. Many things to do, fishing, hiking, near Helen and Babyland. We all had a wonderful time. The house had everything you would need and more. I would recommend this property to families and adults both.

Wonderful location close enough to Helen for a night out, but far enough away to unplug.

Great unit for a weekend retreat - I drove up from Atlanta and had a great time. No complaints!

A perfect stay for a perfect solar eclipse, but enjoy the silence

  • 5 of 5

It's a lot of house for the money. My family enjoyed the use of the porch and the pool table, and walking the neighborhood for exercise. We had friends from Atlanta drive up for the solar eclipse and their son used the Jon Boat and caught Bass in the little lake. It was a relaxing week. We had fun visits to the surrounding areas, the Alpaca farm, hiking in the State parks, tubing in Helen, and a few meals out in Clarkesville. It has a well stocked super market. The town is in good shape for remote Georgia, and has good restaurants for its size. The biggest downside of the house is that the internet is very slow, not sure if it was just a router problem or a larger problem of the area. Also, no cell phone service, even with Verizon, which usually works in very remote areas of the US and overseas. My son, the software engineer, had problems, as did I, who was trying to study from short online videos. That was a fail. There was a landline for calling, my son (the engineer) had to be taught how to "dial 1" before calling long distance. More quaintness. So, enjoy the silence.

Lovely, spacious house and view!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a few days in this extremely peaceful, tranquil location. Close proximity to hiking and white water rafting made it the perfect choice.

The home is well stocked with plenty of linens and kitchen ware...there was nothing we needed that was not provided.

The owner was extremely responsive and even checked on us after we checked in.

We look forward to another visit there and highly recommend it.
