About the property

4 BR / 3BA Lakefront House With Private Dock And Amazing Views!

Located in a very private cove on beautiful Lake Chatuge, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath house has plenty of room for families or can be intimate enough for a couple’s getaway. The home has a partially covered large back deck that runs the length of the house with wonderful views of the lake and sunset. The trees help to keep the house and deck cool but still allow for great views.

Each of the four bedrooms has a large sliding glass door facing the lake. The master bedroom is on the main floor has a queen bed and private bathroom and opens up onto the deck. It has brand new hardwood flooring. The second room on the main floor has a queen bed, closet, opens onto the deck, and is next to the second bathroom and also has new flooring. There is a large living room includes a 60" LCD TV and a wood burning fireplace and to help you relax and enjoy the views. The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials to cook for your group.

Downstairs is a large living room that is wonderful for kids and includes a table and board games, books, an a TV with a large movie selection, original Playstation, a foosball table, 2 couches and a sleeper sofa. The smaller bedroom has a queen bed and the larger bedroom is recently renovated and has a twin over full bunk bed with an extra twin mattress under the bed. The house can sleep 10 people in beds plus an additional 2 on the sleeper sofa.

Down from the house is walkway to the dock as well as a swing to relax by the water. The cove is very quiet even on the busiest days. However it is still deep water and the depth at the end of the dock is 10’ during the summer months and still has water in the winter months. Children can swim or you can fish off the dock without the fear of boats being nearby. Please note that you will need a North Carolina fishing license in order to fish from the dock. We also provide kayaks and a stand up paddle board at no charge! We also recently completed a small fire pit for you to enjoy s'mores and a good fire by the water.

The driveway and parking area was just renovated and provides an area next to the road to park a boat trailer if you bring your own boat. The dock has tie downs to allow you to keep it in the water during your stay. There is a public boat ramp 2 miles away at Jackrabbit. If you don’t bring your own boat, you can rent ski boats, pontoon boats and jet skies at the local marinas. There are several marinas around lake Chatuge. Chatuge Cove Marina is nearby on the NC side of the lake about a 5 min. drive and the larger ones (Boundary Waters Marina and The Ridges Marina) are across the lake on the GA side, near Hiawassee, about a 20 min. drive.

The Jackrabbit Biking Trails are only 2 miles from the house and provide another option to be outdoors and enjoy the area. The trails include a simple 3 mile loop suitable for families and more difficult loops for experienced mountain bikers.

Please contact me for reservations of two weeks or more for additional discounts.

Thank you for looking at our property and we look forward to sharing our home with you.

About Johnny Mira-Knippel

My wife and I have been coming to Lake Chatuge since we were children and have grown up loving weekends on the water. We have done the same with our four children and we are excited to finally be able to purchase a house on the lake and share it with others. Our family is always outside and spend our weekends at the ball field, on the Jackrabbit biking trails, or swimming in the lake at every chance. We love to make the house better every chance we get and each time you visit, there will likely be something new.

Johnny Mira-Knippel purchased this house in 2016

Why Johnny Mira-Knippel chose Hayesville

We had been looking at this property for several years because of its location on the private cove near Ho-Hum campground. I always loved the fact that children could swim in the cove even during the busiest weekends and feel safe. The lot still has several mature oak trees that help it feel more secluded but also keep the dock and deck cool during the summer.

What makes this house unique

The views from the bedrooms and the fact at every room of the house can see the lake made us fall in love with this home. As you lie in bed at night, you can leave the sliding door open and get the cool breeze coming through your room and then wake up to a beautiful sky. The deck runs the whole length of the house and provides so much room to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at your home. It was exactly as described and more! The location was excellent, close enough to restaurants and grocery stores to access easily but still quiet and relaxing. It was very nice having a dock to tie our boat at and also very nice having room to park our trailer. We hope to be back very soon!

Wonderful place for a family or a couple families to vacation together

  • 4 of 5

The lakefront house is on a nice quiet cove and has everything you need to relax. Separate floors for the adults and kids was great with three teenage girls. Kids can swim from the dock while parents look on from the large deck. Having kayaks and an SUP available saved us the hassle of bringing our own and added to our enjoyment of the spot. Nearby mountain bike trails were a plus. Owners were very responsive and helpful. Definitely considering returning.

Great location on the lake. The owner was very responsive to our needs.

  • 4 of 5

We had plenty of fun on the lake thanks to to kayaks, paddle board, and fishing poles all provided by the owner. There was also plenty of room in the house for 2 adults and 4 teenagers. My only suggestion would be to fix the upstairs door slider to the porch. Was very difficult to open and close. Also clean up the porch outside . There was a broken grill and pieces of wood remaining from new construction on the porch.

Great Lake House with great owners. Johnny was very helpful with any questions I had.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic family vacation at Johnny's home. Beautiful views, enough room for a large family, we brought our own kayaks and water board, plus used theirs too. On one really rainy day, we played video games and watched Netflix and just hung out together. Very quiet cove too. We felt safe in the kayaks, and just floating around. Johnny was very helpful, and we had a great time. I would recommend this home to my friends and I would come back again. Thank you so much!

Wonderful property for my family

  • 5 of 5

I have 3 children 9, 13, and 15 and they loved it. The two boys had their downstairs pad and my daughter and husband had the upstairs. You can see everyone fish( and we caught alot), swim, and kayak while you are sitting on the deck cooking/chilling or whatever. You can dock your boat/skis right at the house. Good time and Johnny was very responsive and thanks for getting us CNN for the game!

Just know it is a steep walk down to the lake. My mom is 70(she stayed for 2 days) and is very mobile but alot aren't.

Thanks again and we will be back.
