Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I grew up in North Carolina and my husband grew up in Atlanta. We live and work in Cary, NC where we have raised our children. Even though we have beautiful mountains in N.C. I have fallen in love with the North Georgia Mountains. My husband started going to Lake Burton in the late 1950's as a young boy living in Atlanta. For the past 10 years we spent our family vacations in the North Georgia Mountains.

Why the Owner Chose Clarkesville, GA, USA:
When we found this property in the Spring of 2013 it was the perfect size and location for us. We love to hike, swim, go boating and antiquing, all of which can be done within 5 miles of The Nest. Since we purchased this property we been updating including a paved driveway and stone patio in the backyard. I have had a great time decorating and have made many trips to Scott's Antique Market and local antique stores for furnishings.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The reason we choose The Nest as the name of our mountain cottage is because of the definition. Nest: a place of retreat or refuge, a nurturing place. You will enjoy doing nothing while you are visiting or filling your days with many of the activities that the area has to offer.
