Check out Kudzu Cabin on beautiful, peaceful Lake Nottely, in the North Georgia Mountains, less than 2 hours from Atlanta. Please click on the RATES button at the top of the page for details about nightly, weekly, and seasonal rates, deposits, pet and cleaning fees, and VRBO required renter service fees.

Kudzu Cabin, your home away from home, awaits you with its rustic lodge-style furnishings and over 300 feet of lakefront access with a private double-decker boat dock, where you can park your boat or jet-ski rentals, swim, kayak, sun on the upper deck, or just sit back and relax with a glass of wine at sunset. You’ll have plenty of room for family and friends to join you in this beautifully appointed and spacious 5 BR, 5 & 2 - ½ bath cabin that sleeps up to 17 in beds, just minutes from Blairsville and charming Blue Ridge. (Absolutely NO parties allowed. No more than 17 people allowed in home at any time. We offer a FAMILY and/or BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL setting, NOT a party house.)

The main level features cozy seating in the sunroom, a two-sided, floor-to-ceiling fireplace, peeking into an open living room, dining room, fully-equipped kitchen, and powder room. The dining room seats 8, plus 4 bar stools at the kitchen island. In the living room, you'll find a TV, with DVD player and small DVD library.

Off the living room is a master bedroom, with a king size bed and private bath (shower/tub combo) with double vanity.

Step out onto the wrap-around deck, where the outdoor barn-wood table seats 8-10, a pub style table seats 4, along with plenty of rocking and other chairs to crowd around a gorgeous outdoor fireplace. Relax in the hammock, or enjoy a rousing round of corn-hole.

In the upstairs loft is a master bedroom, with a king size bed and on-suite private bath with double vanity, leading to a shared shower/tub combo, leading to the loft powder room. The loft has a queen size sleeper sofa, an assortment of books to read, and a telescope for night time star-gazing!

The basement level has a comfy living area with a gas log, two-sided fireplace, table for games, as well as a shelf stocked with games, playing cards, and books, and a flat screen TV with VCR and video library. The three bedrooms include one with a queen size bed, one with a bunk bed (full size on bottom) and twin trundle, and a third with two bunk bed sets (one with full size on bottom). All three bedrooms have a separate bath with shower.

The laundry room is located in the basement with a full size washer/dryer and an iron and ironing board. The house has a landline phone, Dish TV, and internet with Wi-Fi. The bathrooms are all stocked with plenty of towels and a hair dryer. We even have several beach towels and rags in the basement laundry room for use on the dock, or to clean up a mess. (Please don't stain our white towels!)

If you have a small dog (NON-SHEDDING ONLY) you'd like to bring along, please ask us about our pet policy. Additional fees will apply. Weight limit is 30 pounds, with a limit of 2 dogs. Dogs are not allowed on any furniture.

When you're not enjoying the sun on the deck, making use of boat rentals, or hiking around the area, you'll find plenty of other things to do at Kudzu Cabin. We have kayaks and several life vests, a paddle board, several noodles for your use, hoola-hoops, a corn hole game, bocce ball set, crocket set, and horse shoes, as well as plenty of books, games, poker sets, cards, and videos for the kids to watch. And of course, the nearby towns of Blairsville, Blue Ridge, and Murphy, NC have entertainment events, art shows, and other attractions, year-round.

Be sure to check online resources for water levels on Lake Nottely, during the time of your planned trip - or contact us, and we will find out for you. Lake Nottely is TVA controlled, with water levels at full pool during peak season - gradually increasing up to Memorial Day (often much sooner than that) and gradually decreasing after Labor Day. Any drought or rainy conditions in North Georgia can also have an impact on lake water levels. Note that our boat dock is in deep water and we have not had issues getting boats in and out during peak season in the past and often have good access well before and after peak season.

Whether seeking a retreat for a family reunion, gathering with close friends, or business function, Kudzu Cabin, Lake Nottely, and the surrounding areas have much to offer, year-round. Book your next trip with us!

About Val Bippert & Doug Bippert

A family of 5 and Marietta residents since 2006, the Bipperts hail from Texas, but love the Atlanta area and the North Georgia Mountains. After owning this gem of a cabin for 6 years with friends, we've bought out our partners and have decided to share our treasure with others, as a rental. We love that this house is so close to home that we can pop in for a weekend with friends, with little planning, and immediately start enjoying the relaxing lifestyle that Lake Nottely and the area offer. We hope you'll find some of what we have at Kudzu Cabin!

Val Bippert & Doug Bippert purchased this Cabin in 2010

Why Val Bippert & Doug Bippert chose Blairsville

After searching for a beach house for a year, we realized that we wanted our get-away to be closer to home. Our friends (and soon to be lake house partners) recommended looking in Blue Ridge and Lake Nottely for a home to share on the lake. In no time, we stumbled upon this beauty and have called it our second home since. It's great for as many as three families at once, enjoying the lake and nature together. Whether you spend the entire time outdoors, or a rainy day inside playing games and watching TV, Kudzu Cabin is the perfect get-away from the realities of life, any time of the year.

What makes this Cabin unique

We are always looking for updates and ways to make our home more renter friendly. Be sure to look back from time to time, to see what is new. In the mean time, enjoy the fact that there is a private bath for every bedroom, a deck that is the perfect extension of the main floor and dining room, and a double-decker boat dock where you could spend an entire day, enjoying family, friends, and sunshine!

                                                          Everything we expected!!

                                                          The property was well maintained and spacious!

                                                          Loved this property. Very well equipped. Cabin was absolutely beautiful. Would love to return. Our family had a great Thanksgiving.

                                                          Thank you for taking time to review our cabin! We’re so happy that you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you return in the future!

                                                          What a great place for a large group

                                                          Plenty of room to spread out. Spent most of he time on the porch. Only complaint was we were very low on propane for grills. But we will be back for sure

                                                          Sorry for the inconvenience for the propane tanks. As I said, we have 4 tanks that we keep at the property, but when guests don't let us know they're low or empty, they won't get refilled. We appreciate you telling us. I will tell the cleaning crew to add that to their check out list. Hopefully, that will help.

                                                          Great find

                                                          Great house! Tons of space :)

                                                          Thank you for the feedback!

                                                          Great place!!!!

                                                          Robert M.

                                                          Great house - perfect for our family. We will be back!

                                                          Wonderful weekend with the family

                                                          happy s.

                                                          We had a blast at Kudzu Cabin. The owners were fantastic is answering all my questions and concerns prior to the trip. We had 5 families which occupied 1 bedroom each. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom which was great!

                                                          The trail down to the lake was well maintained and easy to walk down. The owners provides a wagon to hep us bring our items down to the lake. The water is deep enough to jump from the top. However, I don't know if the water level during our stay was considered low or high. Some of the male adults did touch the bottom with their feet when they jumped. There are three kayak's included in the rental.

                                                          We rented a boat from North Georgia Water Sports. For a fee they dropped and picked up the boat at the boat house. This was a fantastic luxury! We enjoyed the extra time having breakfast and enjoying the dock, instead of loading everyone into the car and driving to the Marina.

                                                          The cabin is well maintained with every detail considered by the owners. The owners have listed every possible detail in their list of rules for clean up/check out. This helped with a speedy checkout/cleanup. I do believe this also allows for them to keep the house maintained well.

                                                          The cabin was well stocked with kitchen items, linens, games, BBQ, wood etc.

                                                          Since we had a larger party, we decided to eat our meals at the cabin vs. restaurant. We did have a full refrigerator and would be useful if there were a second refrigerator to store food. We made due with the space that we had in the one.

                                                          There is plenty of seating between the kitchen table and the two patio tables.

                                                          Thank you for the nice review! We appreciate you sharing all of the details that made your stay so pleasant. It's very helpful for future renters.

                                                          We wish we had space for a second refrigerator! It would be helpful for us too! However, as you noticed, the layout of the cabin is extremely efficient and, sadly, the space just doesn't accommodate a second fridge!

                                                          For those in need of a boat rental, please consider renting from us at Nottely Boat Club & Marina on Nottely Dam Road. We offer our renters a 10% discount and the marina is just a short 5 minute drive from the cabin. We have very competitive rates and the newest, nicest, best boats on Lake Nottely - and awesome management! You do need to book in advance, especially for holiday weekends, since we tend to stay fully booked. Plus, we have live entertainment on the deck at the marina, every Friday and Saturday, from 6-9 PM.

                                                          Thanks again for the praises! It was our pleasure to have your group stay at Kudzu Cabin!
