About the property

Creekfront cottage in the woods with pond, plus mountain views. Pet-friendly.

Newly listed with VRBO!

GILI'S COVE COTTAGE...woods, nature, serenity. Fall asleep to the sounds of the rushing creek right outside your window. Enjoy morning coffee on the porch overlooking the creek, watch deer in the meadow and the geese in the pond. Fish for a trout dinner just steps outside the back door.

Two-bedroom/two-bath cottage with split plan for privacy, sleeps six. Living room + family room allows plenty of room for you and all your gear. The living room has a gas fireplace heater with two comfy recliners. The family room has a wall of windows overlooking the creek, with an oversized counter and wet bar. The all-season porch is screened in summer, but when the weather gets cool, the 360-degree windows allow you to still enjoy the porch, watching the creek for deer and beaver, and the gas fireplace and comfy chaise lounge provide a perfect spot for curling up with a good book. The kitchen is large, open and bright, and is fully equipped to handle meals for gatherings of all sizes. Off the kitchen is the laundry room with a wash-up sink, folding table and plenty of hanging space. Hi-speed internet with Wi-Fi means you'll never be out of touch. Also provided is a landline phone with free domestic long distance. The cottage has central heat & A/C. Pull-through driveway with carport keeps your vehicle clean and dry. The cottage sits on a wooded and lushly landscaped level lot for easy access.

About Linda & Jorge Gonzalez

Raised in New Jersey (too crowded). Chicago winters (too cold). Florida summers (too hot!). Clemson University grad (go Tigers!). And all we ever wanted to do was live in the mountains. We finally realized our dream and settled in the one of the friendliest small communities surrounded by nature's beauty which awes us every day. Peace. Nature. Tranquility. We found our serenity. Let us help you find yours at Gili's Cove Cottage.

Linda & Jorge Gonzalez purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Linda & Jorge Gonzalez chose Lake Chatuge

We discovered Hayesville and Clay County after driving west from the crowds and hubbub of the Asheville area. Convenient to three metropolitan airports (Atlanta, Asheville, Chatanooga), Hayesville prides itself as being 'two hours from anywhere'. A largely rural area surrounded by national forest, the town boasts both a single stop-n-go light and a nationally recognized fine-dining restaurant. The area is rich in local folk arts and culture, with the John C. Campbell Folk Art School nearby. Recreation choices abound-- fishing and boating on Lake Chatuge is 10 minutes away. Hiking, waterfalls, golf, antiques galore. Concerts on the square, festivals and vineyards make it hard to choose what to do each day, especially on a summer weekend. The cottage is convenient to town but feels a world away.

What makes this cottage unique

Turn off the road, drive past the pasture, look across the pond, cross over the creek and you've entered a different world. The cottage sits right on the creek-- a rushing, stocked trout stream right outside your windows. The all-season porch (screened in summer, windows in winter with gas fireplace) is the perfect place for family meals or a quiet retreat, always with the sounds of the rushing creek right outside. The pond offers a never-ending show of wildlife-- deer, ducks and geese, cranes and our resident Great Blue Heron. Children love to walk by the pasture and watch the mommas watching over their calves as they run and play, with poppa bull always casting a wary eye. Take a walk around the pond and along the creek trail-- you'll feel like you're in your own private place in the natural world.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was more than I expected. The house was spotless and fully equipped. Linda was waiting for us and gave us lots of reccomendations. It was definitely a great opportunity for our family to rest and get away from the city for a few days. I would to come back Somme other time

A Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was everything that we needed. Linda was great to work with. We weren't sure if our getaway was going to take place this year. With the forest fires going on but Linda kept me informed on the condition and at the last minute we decided to give it a try. My dad is on oxygen so I had to be careful with the air quality and Linda understood and very helpful. My dad loved the area. If/when my dad is ready for us to book our next getaway, I will make sure it's one of the cottages by the creek. I loved the cottage and it had everything we needed. We (my boys and I)were able to take the babies with us this year and that really meant a lot to us. Our babies are a 7lb poodle and a 60lb German Shepherd mix. That's something that is not offered a lot when you are looking for a family getaway. This year the boys were able to go to a Christmas tree farm and choose a tree for Christmas this year. It was a great vacation and we will be back.

Owner's Response: We were so delighted that this guest decided to come stay with us, despite the scares we had been having with nearby forest fires. As it turned out, the worst of the fires and smoke had passed by the time they arrived and we had clear blue & sunny skies. So glad they were able to come on their long-awaited trip to our little corner of the mountains!

OUTSTANDING

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were met with a warm welcome by Linda and Jorge. We even got a golf cart tour of the property and Blackwell Branch cabin which is also a very nice place..Gili's Cove is the cleanest and most equipped vrbo we have ever rented-plus the nice touches of fresh flowers,fruit and a welcome gift.We could have spent the whole time on the property because of all the goodies out in nature..loved playing in the creek,walking around the pond,hiking on near paths,talking to the animals,watching for the airplanes,and sitting on the swing over looking creek....The pond with use of a canoe and fish waiting on you are also part of the rental.The location of the property provides easy short road trips to other cities and attractions...A few we found interesting are Clay' Corner,Chatuge Dam,Franklin,David GoldhagenArt Glass,John Campbell Folk School..I highly recommend Gili's Cove for a great adventure any season.

Favorite Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed 2 visits to this cottage and have already scheduled a 3rd. I am a bit OCD about cleanliness and this beautiful creekside get away is by far the cleanest we have ever rented. Every item is of high quality from the sheets and towels to the glasses. The screened porch is the big draw for us. It is large, comfortable and the perfect spot for enjoying the sounds of the creek. We even caught a few good size fish in the pond just across the creek. This is the perfect spot for a long weekend retreat.

A Gem of Serenity

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding experience! Nestled amongst gorgeous trees in the beautiful Tusquittee Valley, this gem of a cottage grabbed my heart. Gili’s Cove exudes a warmth, peacefulness, and sense of being in one’s own private sanctuary. Linda and Jorge have done an exceptional job ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable stay. They provide spacious accommodations, impeccable cleanliness, fully equipped kitchen, screened porch, campfire under the stars…right down to the smallest details of fresh flowers and welcome basket. I immediately felt at home and knew I would return to this “little piece of heaven” by the creek!

Check out the arts classes and free concerts at the renowned John C. Campbell Folk Art School. Agri-tourism at its best--over a dozen local vineyards offer tours and tastings in picturesque settings. Eat your Wheaties, then try whitewater rafting on the Ocoee and Nantahala Rivers. Fulfill a lifelong dream and hike the Appalachian Trail (or at least a part of it!). Learn to fly-fish and catch a trout for dinner right in your own backyard.
