About the Property

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Hayesville, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
