Not a cabin, not a castle...a lakeside cottage, casually elegant, comfortable and affordable.
Lovely views of the mountains and the lake. Close to town, Waterside Cottage is a retreat for small families, seniors, and couples.
Light and clean with all the comforts of home make this the right choice for your holiday plans. Surrounded by the lake and mountains, the home faces Lake Chatuge, known for it's clean waters, great for swimming, boating, fishing and water sports. The town of Hiawassee, with its lake and mountain views is often referred to as "The Enchanted Valley".
Hiking trails, waterfalls, parks, antique malls, boutiques, golf, fine and casual dining and so much more is conveniently close. Waterside Cottage is not a party home, and is not suitable for large groups or party people. Rather, it is a centrally located, affordable, comfortable cottage. Within walking distance to the town of Hiawassee, in a lakeside neighborhood, with no steep mountain roads, it is located on a paved road with gentle terrain. It is not remote and there are neighbors close by. It is approximately one mile to HWY 76 a main road that takes you to the entire surrounding area, towns such as Clayton, Helen, Blue Ridge, Hayesville, and Franklin, all about a 30 minute drive. Take a trip over the great smoky mountains and visit Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Asheville or Chattanooga, all about a 2 1/2 hour drive.

There is not a boat dock associated with Waterside but there's room to park a boat and a launching area close by.
Lake access is out the front gate and across the quiet road where there is a park like setting. The water front is a gradual slope where you can wade out or stay close to shore. Or stretch out on the Adirondack chairs and watch the the boats go by.
There are marinas nearby to rent boats, or bring your own.
Watch the sunset over the lake and roast marshmallows around the firepit while the kids catch fireflies.
Walk or bike to the town of Hiawassee (or take the 3 min drive), where you will find fine restaurants and fast food, upscale shops and old fashioned general stores. There is 'Music on the Square' every Saturday summer night, and a farmers market to buy local produce and crafts.
Just a 5 minute drive away Georgia Mountain fairgrounds and Music Hall where there are festivals and concerts all year long.
You can catch a movie, play golf or visit the spa at Brasstown Valley Resort.
Visit the nearby towns. Blue Ridge where you can ride the train though the mountains, or the Bavarian town of Helen where you can tube down the river or enjoy the longest Oktoberfest in the US, take a zip-line in Sautee, or Blairsville. Visit Brasstown Bald, Georgia's highest mountain where the views will take your breath away. Hike the Appalachian trail, there is an entrance just a few miles away.
Christmas at Waterside can be so beautiful. We have enjoyed several white Christmasses. Our family loves to visit the nearby town of Helen, a Bavarian village all decorated for the holidays.

The Master bedroom, upstairs with a new King sized bed (2016), and a spacious balcony with great views.
Also upstairs is the guest bedroom with 2 new twin beds and trundles underneath.
There is one bathroom upstairs, with double sinks, a tub/shower and commode.
Downstairs there is a 2nd Master bedroom with a new (2016) queen bed, TV.
There is one bathroom downstairs with a tub/shower and commode.
The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking with pots/pans, utensils, spices and coffee service.
For added fun include the boat shed access which contains four kayaks, bicycles and fishing gear. Please note: the kayaks are for experienced and active people and are not recommended for people who are sedentary.
Waterside Cottage: not an isolated cabin in the woods, but a lakeside retreat close to town and all that it offers.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I grew up spending my summers in the mountains of upstate NY and Vermont. I fell in love with the Hiawassee area because it reminded me so much of those areas I knew as a child. The pristine mountains and waters and the air that smells so fresh. Now my family and I live in South Florida, and altho we are blessed to live here, there is something so special about Hiawassee, we hope to live there someday.

Why the Owner Chose Hiawassee, GA, USA:
Location, Location, Location, It is a mountain and lake community with funfilled summers and sometimes snowy winters. So close to everything, in a peaceful community on the lake. Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds with concerts and festivals is 7 minutes away! See link above.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Here you can experience the small town community of Hiawassee and the lake, or the surrounding mountains, but have all the modern conveniences in an easily accessible home that it gorgeous and comfortable. You can relax in quiet solitude at the house, go out on the lake and explore the undeveloped islands or join the community on the town square for an evening of great food and music, the choice is yours. Fine dining, casual fast food, great shopping, movies, theatre, the list goes on, its all here.
