Sit on the hammock, visit with your guests around the fire pit and roast marshmallows, enjoy our infrared grill and make fabulous meals in the fully-equipped kitchen and dine in the fully-screened and furnished wrap around patio. Here for romance? Light a fire and sit in the jacuzzi that is situated on the deck, overlooking the lake. Here with family? We have those darling bunk beds, movies, games and books, and the cabin is generally handicap friendly! The Upstate has dozens of waterfalls, and Oconee County boasts 18 waterfalls just in it's county alone! This charming, privately gated community, Lake Chattooga is not to be missed!

You have no time to shop for a rental, and we want you to have full transparency!

Just an FYI, We are NOT A GASOLINE MOTORIZED BOAT LAKE AND THERE ARE NO RENTALS NEARBY. Most of the lakes around us are small and private and not for gasoline-powered recreational use.

Thank you for taking a look at our home for your vacation!

About Monique Wallace

This home was originally owned by Mark's parents for almost 20 years, and was sold when they decided to retire "in town". The home was then owned and enjoyed by the Hinkle family. As their kids grew older, they decided to sell the cabin back into the Wallace family. Mark and Monique Wallace purchased the home in March, 2015. The Wallace's are a Clemson Tiger family, and Monique's family (minus Monique and her two daughters) remain in California- to support the Medby family UCLA heritage and Monique's alma mater. Mark and Monique met in Indiana and lived briefly in the Chicago suburbs, as owners of Moveable Feast in Geneva, IL. Now back in Indianapolis and Minneapolis, and freezing most of the time, they decided to put down roots by buying the family cabin so the Southern boy and the California girl could make lots of new memories together with their children and grandchildren.

Monique Wallace purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Monique Wallace chose Upcountry

There are a lot of fabulous memories in the home, and the vibe here is warm, welcoming and nourishing. Our home is also a tremendous value, as it is an entire lake front home with private dock with all the amenities, a new 2nd bathroom (remodeled in January 2017) and every room updated with well appointed furnishings, for under $200 a night! We also include many kitchen and bath supplies (a value of at least $100!). Many celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and we have several bride's prepare for their weddings at Chattooga Belle Farms in our home. We also have hosted several international travelers. The lake house is a peaceful and comfortable place for your retreat. It is a place to create your own memories. We recognize this and would be honored to be your special home away from home.

What makes this cabin unique

We not only love this home because it is rich in Wallace family memories, (there may be a few carved out names on a small desk in the corner...) but because it is just the "right amount of far enough away". Every amenity you can think of surrounds the area, but at night the stars are bright and chirps and clicks and fire crackles and the faint sound of moving water and wind all around you is all you can hear. One of Mark's favorite thing to do is to go out to the middle of the lake at night and look at the brilliance of the Milky Way and we frequently dance on the dock! Be sure to enjoy this lasting memory for yourself!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Mr M, I take your complaints very personal and unbelievable! I was the guest that stayed before you got there. I am calling your complaints BS! My family of four stayed there for four nights. NEVER not once did we experience ANY smells or odors that were unpleasing or bothersome. The leaky tub Monique told us of and so it was expected. They are replacing it on their slow time of the year. With another tub and shower available, 4 adults had no problems with staying clean. The hot tub was great! If you had to scoop something out with your hands then that was by your choice since there is a skimmer in perfect condi tion on your right side in the corner. Mr. M, look at ALL the other comments and there is not ONE that states anything remotely close to what you are stating. This home is a cabin on the lake in the nature of woods. Its beautiful, clean, relaxing and calming just to be there. I agree with Monique which is wonderful, kind and always professional to deal with. I would not have refunded your money either since it seems that your situation seems to be the only one that states something about odor. I believe this was something personal that you and your wife experienced. With being the guests that was there BEFORE you, I will honestly and firmly stand by the awesome experience we had and have already scheduled another visit in November. I too have been a member of VRBO for years and I don't think I would take my hard earned money and spend more time at a home that I was not extremely happy with. Working in the medical field for over 20 years, I would highly suggest that you and y our wife be tested for allergies. Seems like you both have a very sensitive situation that can be helped with medication. In my opinion Mr. M, sounds like you were trying to get something for nothing but lets not judge! Good luck with your adventures. Hope you and your wife are feeling better.

Truly 5 Stars!

  • 5 of 5

I am very experienced with HomeAway and the other guys and this is clearly the nicest place for the price. You may want to go now before she figures out that she can charge more...😀

Thanks Monique! We'll be back soon!

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly like the pictures. The area around the lake is private and so peaceful. They provide kayaks and at age 59 I had my first kayaking experience. I loved it. The lake is so clean and the neighbors so nice. You can walk the road around the lake for your daily walk. It is a gated community so no fear. There are also hiking trails and waterfalls close by.

Buy your food before you get there because you are not going to want to leave.

Wonderful get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relaxing but fun family birthday weekend! Favorite spot was the screened in porch in the morning and evening and during the rain, loved being so close to the water. We could watch the fish, geese and other birds. The dock was great too and we took full advantage of the kayaks provided. We never saw another person on the lake and only a few cars drove by. Walking around the lake was nice too!

Loved the mix of the old and new on the cabin, cozy and quaint but very comfortable and clean. The renovation of the second bathroom was impressive! The cabin was very well stocked. As much as you try to anticipate what you need, you do expect the basics to be there. We have stayed at many rentals and this was one of the better stocked.

It's hard to find good places to rent that take dogs and we loved having them there to explore and walk with us. But you couldn't tell at all that dogs had been there before, it was that clean!

We had a great lunch at the Mountain Rest Café and made a run to the Dollar General, both close by, but otherwise never left the cabin!

Perfect for my pre-wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cabin for myself and my bridesmaids the weekend of my wedding. It was perfect. Peaceful, quiet, lovely amenities. Monique was fabulous to work with and accommodated our needs kindly. The bathroom was perfect to take getting reading photos in, and the jacuzzi was great to relax in the night before getting hitched! I spent several hours writing thank you notes and my vows on the wraparound porch. We had so much fun and I would definitely recommend this place!

Peaceful serenity

  • 5 of 5

Had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful home. From the first night, it was complete and utter serenity. I highly recommend this property. Great place to detox from technology if you wish (very fast wi-fi if you still need to stay connected). The lake, the hot tub, the home, the amenities, and the location just make this place HEAVEN!

Second stay at the charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

After showing pictures of my first stay to the inlaws, they just had to come experience it themselves. The fishing was great, even though the weather wasn't so much. The house was immaculate. The lake was pristine and the area was so quiet.

Will be back very soon.
