Property description

Imagine yourself in a chaise lounge chair overlooking a sparkling lake.

A stay at Catfish Lake House on Lake Chatuge will turn that daydream into a reality. You will love the end of the lake serenity with glimmering moonlight dancing on the water while you sit lakeside in the evening at the new fire pit. Also, the new casino at Harrah's is only 35 minute drive.

Our spacious lakeside vacation rental can sleep up to eight guests comfortably. Its a newly remodeled three-bedroom, 2 bath house on the Lake, yet close to stores, restaurants and activities in the Hiawasse / Young Harris / Helen area of the North Georgia Mountains.

The Catfish Lake House has its own dock. For fishing, the dock has a "fishing" chair on the edge of the swim dock. The chair swivels making casting easy from all angles. The property has its own boat ramp for convenient access to launch your jet ski or boat. On top of the dock is a wonderful deck for sunbathing or sipping cider at sunset. The house was built to take advantage of magnificent lakefront views. There is a sun room and screened porch as well as a large brand new from november of 2014 hot tub just feet from the shoreline. There is a fire pit for your nightly campfire and marshmallow roast.

The heart of the house is the great room with gas-log stone fireplace, 52' cable TV/DVD with HBO and Cinemax, and 2 brand new leather sofas and recliner. This large room adjoins the open kitchen and indoor dining area. It is very open with its vaulted solid pine ceiling. The home is furnished with casual comfort in mind. It has an all-wood interior including hardwood floors, leather furniture and comfortable bedding. Enjoy the Lake - from one of our lakefront living areas in the house, from the hot tub in the gazebo, on the sun deck over the boat dock, and, of course, from a boat. Enjoy the year round sun room with floor-to-ceiling windows, leather sofa and flat screen TV; and the screened porch with casual outdoor furniture. There are three inviting dining areas - in the house, on the covered porch overlooking the lake or at the screened porch lakeside, or of course on top of the dock. The Master is outfitted with a brand new King and the other 2 bedrooms have Queen sized beds. There are a set of brand new bunks tucked away on the back side of the house in the second living room or Sun Room. The master bedroom has a flat screen TV/DVD combo, a large 6 foot jetted tub, double sinks and separate shower. The other 2 bedrooms share a bath with a tub/shower. Sleeping 10 is easy here as long as some are children.

All rooms are comfortably equipped with closets and dressers. There is plenty of room for your weekly stay. There is of course a washer and dryer for your personal needs.

Local attractions in Hiawassee, include many restaurants to suit varying tastes. Outside the obvious fast food, there are several local favorites. Asiano's is a Japanese steak house with a Hibachi Grill and separate sushi room. Excellent food. Machalee's Chocolate Cafe, in nearby Blairsville Ga, is a very popular local haunt known for high quality cuisine as well as their incredible coffee and desserts. The Blue Otter is either a drive or a boat ride to one of local marinas. Very family friendly.

There are 2 local marinas. Boundary Waters is the closest and is on the same road as the home. They are unique in that they are a full service marina with lots of options for renting anything to do with fun on the water.

At your disposal, you have 3 wonderful golf courses. All are within 20 minutes driving. For the hiking enthusiast, the Appalachian Trail is about 10 minutes away on the same road that takes you to beautiful Helen, Georgia (20 minute drive). Helen is a tiny hamlet patterned after Bavaria in Germany. The town is always alive with festivals like Oktoberfest. World Class trout fishing is everywhere, and about a 45 minute drive to world famous Nantahala River, where both trout fishing and white water sports are the rage.

This beautiful lake house is literally at the doorstep of Nature. Yet it has all the conveniences to please your whole family, young and old. A nighttime unwind at the local Fieldstone cinema features will help you get tucked into bed for another adventurous day. You will find time spent here accommodating, comfortable, and relaxing.

New in the summer of '16, we have added an extravagant backyard patio/chargoal brick grill/firepit. You should be able to sit lakeside in the evening and roast marshmellows on a new fire pit. There is a circular concrete/rock seating area that will hold 12-15 people. It also has a second ledge behind it to hold drinks, snacks, marshmallow and any smores concoctions that you fancy. The new concrete patio with attached BBQ grill is certainly a major upgrade in both style and functionality.

All that is missing is you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are lifelong natives of the Smokies and Lake Chatuge. We love this area and are proud of this home. We aim to treat you and your family how we want to be treated. Our goal is to build a long lasting relationship with folks that visit our home and neighborhood.

Why the Owner Chose Hiawassee, GA, USA:
Being from this area, this home offers the opportunity for everyone to unwind and to relax. Everything is close, yet there is no hustle and bustle. Views are magnificent, and the tranquility is incredible. Our cove has almost no marine traffic and is dreamy for family time in the lake. A brand new Harrahs Casino opens September 2015.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sitting in the private hot tub at night looking onto the lake and listening to the crickets is divine. A cup of coffee in the morning on top of the dock, brings us peace that is often missed.
