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.

The house was perfect for our large family gathering!
We had an amazing time--with ages ranging from 1 to 95 the house was accommodating for all! We loved the game room, the outdoor living space, the hot tub and enjoyed the floats, kayak and paddle board. We rented a boat and enjoyed the beauty of the lake. The kitchen was well-equipped along with the outdoor grilling. We very much appreciated the use of the elevator for our 95 year old father. Everything was perfect and we would love to return.
Thanks so much for taking the time to review our home. We are delighted that your family all enjoyed the home and the lake and created lasting memories together. We hope that you'll come back soon.
Beyond Expectations! Amazing Place for Group!
Amazing House, Amazing Features, Amazing Setting, Amazing View, Amazing Dock! This is the perfect property for a group of people. Very spread out with lots of different spaces to enjoy. Game Room, Outside Fireplace Area, Hot Tub, Lots of Rooms, Decks. We didn't even get to take advantage of all the features of this property and we were there for three nights. Better than expected.
We held our annual company retreat at this home and its amenities, location on the lake, and many bedrooms made it perfect for us. It is hard to find a cabin that matches up with what we need. We will definitely book for next year.
Much thanks, Scott, for the five-star review. We hope you will come back!
PS: Book early, this home is becoming popular and several weeks next summer are already booked.
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!"
