About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Relax on a large deck (with a complementary bottle of wine) and enjoy the fantastic views of the Nottely River and distant mountain peaks. Built April 2005, Cedar Chalet is on paved, dead-end road that offers privacy, peace and quiet. Property goes down to the Nottely River 200 feet below the Chalet. The river is great for trout fishing and we have just installed steps all the way to the river. From the deck you have a year around view of distant mountain peaks. At sunset we have seen several Canadian Geese, deer, and turkeys come out or land in a large field across the 75 foot wide river.

All bedrooms have a view of the river with a large sliding glass door in the master bedroom (King bed) that lead onto the deck. The upstairs bedroom (king bed) has its own private deck. The large family room has wall-to-wall glass windows and sliding glass doors that provide a fantastic view without going outside. A stone rock fireplace with gas log is at one end of this room. The dining table can be extended for seating six and two bar stools provide additional seating on the back side of the cabinets.

The Chalet has almost 2300 sq.ft. The basement has a bedroom (double bed) a bathroom, a sitting area with gas log fireplace, a sofa bed a card/game table and a full size pool table and TV. Two single roll-away beds are also available in the basement. A double glass door opens onto the lower deck with a swing. A six person Hot Tub is on this deck with a great view of the river. Thirty feet below lower deck is a fire pit with a panaramic view of river. A sun deck is 20 feet below the fire pit.

Situated between the Cherokee and Nantahala National Forest, this area offers an outdoor paradise. Nearby attractions are Lake Nottley with boat rentals and boat ramp only 5 miles away. Lake Hiwassee is about 12 miles, Anna Ruby Falls, Georgia (three-fourths hour), Appalachian Trail (two-thirds hour), Alpine Village of Helen, Georgia (two hours), Atlanta, Georgia (one-and-one-half hour), and Cherokee Indian Reservation (two hours). A large Flea Market is three miles away. A new golf course 6 miles away. Another course in Murphy is about 10 miles away and has a nice resturant. Two others are 20 miles away.

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It had everything I needed.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful, The View that you could see from everywhere we're just stunning. We saw Frost and the cabin was so warm that you never felt the cold. There was so much space that my family could be everywhere and you could still have peace the hot tub was a hit with my boys. We had great family nights at the pool table. And when we left I left my wallet and they shipped it to me within a few days how awesome is that. I recommend this place for a great quiet peaceful clean awesome getaway.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed in BJ's above the river. Beautiful home, well maintained, great views from the decks. Close proximity to lots of outdoor activities for the whole family. We rented a pontoon at Shook's Marina, white water rafting at Paddle Inn, spent a day at a nearby lake in Georgia, The Fields of the Woods, putt putting at Wagon Wheel Adventure Park, and stopped at The Lost Sea Adventures on our way back home to Ohio. We had an amazing time and would say this is a 5 star vacation property. The only downfall was the steps down to the river. There are A LOT! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!
