In 1990 we built our 'dream cabin' in Hayesville, NC and drove north from Atlanta almost every weekend until our full time move the summer of 2001. Leaving the craziness of the city, but staying within easy driving range of its energy, turned out to be the perfect move for us. With so many friends visiting and wanting a 'piece of quiet' themselves, it was on to real estate in 2002 where I spend most of my time today... Except when Mike and I are at home, still loving our 'dream cabin.'
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007
'Fernleaf Cottage' was actually bought as our future retirement spot. Although we do love our cabin Mike and I both grew up around the Great Lakes and couldn't see ourselves without a water view when we truly do retire to the porch! Being a Realtor I always have my eye out for properties that are a great value, with a great location and view! There was just something about this property that grabbed me the second I walked in and I knew that we had to have it in our future.
While you are, literally, only 2 or 3 minutes to the marina, restaurants, the movies, shopping and town when you are on that back porch you feel like light years from civilization! That's what so many of our guests have said that one of them wants to relax, read and hang out while the other wants to go, go, go... NOW! Everything is so close they can do both but get back together on a moments notice, AND, when you are so relaxed that you forgot the hamburger buns, you're out and back in no time at all! Plus, the cottage is very cozy as it was decorated for kick back enjoyment but NOT from yard sales!
You certainly do have one of the best rental cottages that we've rented! Very comfortable. Didn't need any A/C and the heat at night was a blessing. So many good restaurants, shops and artists. The people are so friendly and eager to share their knowledge. Thank you Shelagh for always being just a phone call away and for sharing all the wonderful treasures on your shelves. Great library!
I chose Fernleaf Cottage because communications with the owner left no doubt that it was the perfect place for a week away from everything. Cottage was perfect for two people (it would work for four). Everything was clean and ready for us. Shelagh could not have been more welcoming. Definitely a place we will be using again. View of the lake, easy to get to, close to town - what more could you ask for.
My wife and I spent five enjoyable nights in this older but very comfortable cottage while attending the Mountain Fair. Location was close to the fairgrounds and very good restaurants in Hiawassee and Young Harris. Had all TV stations we liked and wi-fi worked well. Bathrooms were small and a little dated but worked well and was to be expected in a cottage built in the forty's. Kitchen, dining and living area were well appointed and nicely decorated. Although there were bear warnings, only wild life we saw were birds and a rabbit that visited daily. Shelagh was a pleasure to work with and we would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a quiet mountain get-away.
The Fernleaf Cottage was a great time and location to a wedding near by. The inside was cozy and very inviting. Also, the views were spectacular, it was a big change from Chicago and we loved it. We had our family of 4 and 2 dogs. We all loved sitting in the screened in porch, especially the dogs! We have given rave reviews of the cottage to everyone at the wedding and on returning home. It was a real pleasure!
Residing in Florida with a Colorado background our Holiday goal was to experience a mountain holiday. "Fernleaf Cottage" and the Hiawassee area were a perfect tandem. The cottage itself was clean, nicely appointed and convenient to all the area has to offer. Two other refreshing things about our experience were the property description was exactly as advertised and the owners very cordial and helpful. Loved the fireplace and screened porch !! Our pooch, Coconut was particularly fond of the woodsy feel of the property. The area is chock full of cool little towns nearby for strolling, shopping and eating and for the outdoor types, which we are, the three nearby State Parks were a super bonus. "Fernleaf Cottage" provided us with a perfect start to the new year. "Fernleaf" in Hiawassee gets our vote as best place to "chill".
If you're looking for complete relaxation in a simply beautiful setting this cottage is for you! We enjoyed sitting on the screened back porch every day for hours. Whether reading a book or quilting or taking the occasional nap it was perfect for us. The cottage is clean, comfortable and welcoming. We felt right at home. The well stocked kitchen even had the same pots and pans we have at home! We cooked several meals and goodies. Hiawassee is full of antique shops to explore and enjoy. There are numerous restaurants to choose from and a full feature grocery store only a few minutes from the cottage. When you're on the porch enjoying the beautiful mountains and the lake views you'd never know the town is a few minutes away. The owners are friendly, helpful and easy to work with. We enjoyed our week so much we've already made reservations for next year!
We have never rented a cabin off the internet until our plans changed. A friend in Hiawassee invited us to stay at their cottage, until their plans changed. We searched the internet and found 'Fernleaf Cottage' and what a sweet find it was for our family! The cottage was neat, clean and comfortable from the furniture to the complete kitchen. We spent the days adventuring around the area and relaxing evenings chasing fireflies. When our five year old went to bed, we enjoying the valley views on the screened porch with a glass of local wine. Our whole family enjoyed the stay and wished we could have stayed a bit longer. The property owner lives near by and was very friendly and easy to work with. We promptly received our deposit check with no problems.
Just a couple of minutes outside of downtown Hiawassee, GA and about 10 minutes by the lake over the border to Hayesville, NC with it's Historic Downtown Square, multiple artists studios and large earthen dam. Head south fewer than 30 minutes to the Appalachian Trail or the unique alpine themed town of Helen, GA. Visit the Planetarium at Young Harris College, take a class in anything from blacksmithing to watercolor and everything in between at The John C. Campbell Folk School, enjoy live music, local vineyards, The Georgia Mountain Fair, and all of the outdoor activities you can imagine!
