About Kristy Petrillo
Hi, I’m Kristy Petrillo. I’m excited that you’ve found our “Heaven on Earth” in the North GA mountains. I’ve lived up here in our little slice of paradise for almost 15 years now, and been the top producing real estate agent for many of those years. I personally invest in many properties here myself, owning numerous highly successful rental cabins. I’ve been featured as an agent and a home re-modeler on several shows on HGTV, and use my expertise and insights to help you make your own valuable investment, or find that perfect second home. For me, the heart of Blue Ridge is Lake Blue Ridge itself. Lake Blue Ridge has over 3,000 acres of the cleanest, prettiest water you’ll find anywhere in the Southeast, and some of the best fishing too! Plus, with over 85% of the shoreline preserved as national forest, we don’t get the crowds you find at other more developed lakes. Even on a weekend you’ll often feel like you have the whole lake to yourself! I’m proud to be an owner myself on Lake Blue Ridge for almost 10 years now, and when I’m not out showing property and writing contracts you’ll find me out on a boat wake surfing or cocktail cruising. Come with me sometime, you’ll be ready to put an offer in on a lake house that same day! I’m also thrilled and proud to be raising my three precious boys in Blue Ridge, with its excellent school system, and our very own flying trapeze rig in our backyard! I love Moscow Mules, spicy tequila, and artisan cheeses. l go kite boarding in the Dominican Republic whenever I can, and recently participated in an amazing entrepreneurs networking group called Mai Tai, through which I had the incredible opportunity to meet Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Airlines. His Necker Island Resort and Virgin Limited Edition properties are an inspiration in how to provide world-class vacation experiences to guests, something I have applied to my own rentals right here in Blue Ridge.

Beautiful beyond words!
Eighteen of us stayed at the Dock Holiday House for a family reunion. The home has recently been overhauled. The upgrades are stunning. Several guests mentioned they've not slept in more comfortable beds in their lives. The kitchen is well stocked, the layout is great. The lake is beautiful. The management team was very accessible and accommodating. I can't recommend it enough.
Thank you, Shane, for the great review! This home gets lots of love from everyone on our team, and its gratifying to know it's appreciated. It was our pleasure to accommodate you and your family. We hope you'll come back.
Beautiful home that exceeded our expectations!
The property is close to town and yet you feel away from it all. The lake is beautiful and the home was equipped with all the toys to enjoy it (rafts, hammocks, pergola, boat house, jacuzzi). The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The main living area was large and even more beautiful than the photos on line. The game room was the gathering spot for many of our younger family members and lifetime memories were made. The property manager (Lorrie Gaulden) was amazing and all of her recommendations were spot on. She assisted with catering (highly recommend Chef Karl Engleman - FANTASTIC and reasonable), local restaurants in town, boat rentals, things to do, places to see, etc... And if you wish to white water raft, call Outdoor Adventure Rafting (request JJ) - awesome experience!! My only complaint would be that 4 days was simply not long enough - next time (and I can’t wait for next time) - we will stay longer! Thank you Lorrie and Kristi - You do a great job catering to the needs of others and I look forward to next time!
Awww...Thank you for the wonderful review! It was a pleasure to assist you and your family on this memorable occasion. It's certainly nice to know that our efforts are appreciated and the home served your needs well. Thanks also for the recommendation confirmations--so glad you all had a wonderful time. And we do hope that you'll come back soon. It's beautiful here in the fall...
Worth coming back to, time and time again!
This place is stunning! Lake Blue Ridge is beautiful and to have a home to stay in that matches the experience of the surroundings outside makes any get away that much more amazing. This place is worth coming back to time and time again.
Thanks April, for the wonderful review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will come back "time and time again!"
Everything was just as we had hoped. Immaculate and well prepared! Perfect choice for family getaway!
Thanks so much, Anna! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and that the home met all your needs. "Immaculate" is the standard that our housekeepers strive for. Thanks for noticing and appreciating their attention to detail. We appreciate the review and hope that you all will come back soon.
Celebrating the Matriarch's 80th was a joy. Seventeen of our family were overwhelmed because of the setting. This home has EVERYTHING one could ever want. Recently and totally updated, the space not only accommodated but allowed generous areas to gather and separate as the need arose.
The views from all the public and private spaces were breath taking on to Lake Blue Ridge and the surrounding forest. We could not have wanted more water "Toys" than were already provided. The children were always busy and never wanted to leave the house for activities elsewhere. Please note we took them anyway White Water Rafting and hiking....which they enjoyed thoroughly.
Would we come back? For sure !!!!! Thank you Christy and Lorrie.
We are so glad that you enjoyed Dock Holiday and appreciate the AWESOME review (made my day!) It was our pleasure to host you and your wonderful family, and we sincerely hope you will come back.
The lodge was absolutely beautiful with a wonderful view of the private lake. It housed 14 adults with plenty of space and privacy. The outdoor living space was definitely the best part for our group. We got to enjoy an endless fire starting before sun up to well after sun down. There were plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy with all of the arcade games and pool table down stairs while also canoeing and kayaking around the lake. The kitchen was well stocked with many kitchen tools, pots, pans, and utensils as well as serving pieces. We did take some of our larger pots and pans since we were cooking for a large group. It was a perfect weekend! Thank you for sharing your home with us.
We strive to anticipate our guests wants and needs and its great to hear we hit the mark. Thanks for the great review!
