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.

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.

Peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

This private and peaceful place to stay was perfect for our needs. The water tumbling over the rocks sounded like rain falling on the roof. The cabin was easy to get to but isolated. The kitchen was the most well stocked with appliances and utensils than any I have been in. Clean and roomy with space to spread out. You can't ask for more.

2 family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented two cabins at Gili's Cove Cottage and it was the best vacation we have ever taken. The other family stayed 50 yards away and the kids would knock on our door at 7am (ugh) wanting pancankes, pancakes! Our kids floated up and down the stream all day, caught tons of worms, the kids collected firewood and learned how to build a campfire. We grilled on the deck while the kids played in the water. In the evening we used the kayak and fish for bass and bluegill in the pond across the stream and the kids caught fireflies. We went hiking and fly fishing and it couldn't have been better. S'mores by the campfire at night, definitely "glamping." The cabins were immaculate and had everything we needed. All you need is food, a fly rod and the desire to relax. We will definitely return. Thank you so much Linda for the best family vacation!

Extremely relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at Gili's Cove! House was well appointed, clean and very private. Our hosts were fantastic...dog treats for our pup, a wealth of local information and fresh flowers were all there when we arrived. We ate all of our meals on the screened porch and spent the rest of our time in the home in the sunroom...windows open listening to the wonderful creek. We would recommend visiting Clay County Recreation Area for a swim, hiking at Jack Rabbit Mountain Trails, and a walk on the Chatuge Dam. So many great things to see in western NC and Gili's Cove is the perfect home base!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Gili's Cove cottage was the best vacation we have had in years. Everything about the cottage was as good or better than expected and the sound of the creek is mesmerizing. It was our first time staying in that area and we loved it. We can't wait to stay there again.

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.
