Great cove location with wide, open lake/mountain views and deep water (dock extension should ensure use year round). We have had a vacation rental home in this area for 18 years. Our home has easy access to both Hayesville, NC and Hiawassee, GA, with paved, 2-lane level roads all the way. We're in a quiet neighborhood but not far from 175. Mountain bike/walking trails are just around the corner.
You'll feel as though you're in an Italian Villa, with a large family room and open kitchen plan that is perfect for gatherings. Enjoy the gourmet kitchen, 66' wide refrigerator and freezer, gas stove top, double ovens, and two sinks—perfect for the chef in the family. Of course, we have a microwave for those who are not so inclined. The laundry room is on the main floor. In family room, 30' wood ceiling and prow with windows all the way to the top showcase the magnificent lake/mountain view. We have a gas fireplace that heats up the family room in cool months. Detox or warm up in the sauna, a perfect follow-up for a dip in the lake. For those who want to work while they're on vacation, there's an office with built-in desks that also overlooks the lake. (And yes, it's hard to work when you're watching all the boaters out there having fun!) We have satellite TVs in 3 of the bedrooms and media room. We also have DVR in the family room and master bedroom.
With three bedroom suites, one on each level, each group/couple in your party has privacy. The master suite is on the main level, with a walk-in double shower and a jetted tub big enough for two! Our fourth bedroom shares a shower with the third bedroom but has access to a half bath. It's private, with a king bed, and perfect for kids because it's down a long hallway where they can make noise. We also have a 60' TV in the media room so the kids/teens can have their own space. Our backyard is big enough for the kids to run and play.
The wide open deck accommodates the incredible lake view, though we also have a covered porch in case of rain. It takes four frames to capture the view with the camera! You can even see Brasstown Bald. Enjoy your coffee while watching the mist float above the lake. In the evening sip a glass of wine while the sunset paints the sky, and at night watch the moon rise over the mountains and sparkle across the water. Or set yourself up on the dock and go fishing on this tournament-worthy lake.
We have a covered dock to park your boat, with a swim ladder. There's a free launch right around the corner in Jack Rabbit Park, and I provide easy directions for bringing your watercraft around.
What to do, what to do? Check out our notebook with suggestions, menus, and day trips (state parks, waterfalls, hikes, scenic drives, whitewater rafting, skiing, boat rentals, Helen, GA). You're only minutes to a major road, restaurants (fine and casual), shopping (lots of neat shops), three grocery stores, a movie multiplex/major arcade, live theater, river tubing, lake parks, and golf. There are often things going on in both town squares. We're 10 minutes to either Hiawassee or Hayesville; close to Franklin, Young Harris, Blairsville, and Murphy. You'll just love this whole area!
For those who love nature, our small neighborhood is bordered by the U.S. National Forest Service. Jackrabbit Park is around the corner, with a beach and boat ramp, along with walking trails. And for cyclists, there is a fantastic trail system within a short bike ride. You can also walk those miles of trails.
We offer wireless fiber optic broadband internet access and UNLIMITED LONG DISTANCE CALLS at no extra charge. We have Dish Network.

I'm a Florida native, and as soon as we found this wonderful area, I felt right at home in the mountains. We come up as much as we can, between school schedules and the 12-hour drive. So we're sharing our home with others who want a mountain escape.
I love this area! The people are friendly, it's beautiful everywhere you look, and there's plenty to do. I would live up here full-time if I could!
I love that you can see the lake from so many places in the house, and the enormous ceiling with wall-to-roof windows and the prow really open up the house. The lake is ever-changing. Sometimes it's dotted with wisps of fog, or mirror-smooth, or mixed with interesting currents, or wind-ruffled like the ocean. I really love the sauna. The house is warm and inviting. We have a loop in our neighborhood which is great for walking.
We are located in an area where two towns surround a large lake, so you have the convenience of many stores, restaurants, and shops within a short drive. It's beautiful everywhere you go!
