Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Growing up, we always loved the woods of the North Georgia Mountains. We have travelled all over the world but always come back to North Georgia. You will too.

Why the Owner Chose Cleveland, GA, USA:
We use the house ourselves and rent it to discerning, respectful guests who appreciate its beauty, charm and comfort and enjoy the privacy, peace and quiet.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Huntcliff Lodge is in a wooded hollow and is secluded and private. The Tesnatee river at your doorstep offers scenic beauty and the sound of clear, rushing water. The main house accommodates 7 guests and the adjoining 'Gingerbread House' offers privacy and room for 3 more with a kitchenette and private bath. There is room for gatherings and also to spread out for private conversations, meditation or reading.
