About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, lake view, mountain views.
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, quaint shops, restaurants and vineyards, 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".
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.

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.

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.
