We travelled from the UK to a wedding in Atlanta and wanted to finish off our trip with a stay in the North Georgia mountains where we could unwind. Fernleaf Cottage was the perfect answer. It is cozily furnished and very comfortable. Although the cottage is situated in woodland, it is minutes from everything you could want in Hiawassee – good restaurants (Michaelees), supermarket (Ingles), banks and the cinema. Its location is also perfect for visiting the local sites such as Brasstown Bald, Anna Ruby Falls and the Creek Valley Vineyards. Being the end of March, it was sadly a bit too chilly to sit on the porch although one evening when it was warmer, we managed to stay outside until the sun set. When the sun came out in the mornings we used to lean on the rail outside with our tea (well, we are English!) and watch the stunningly beautiful birds and the mischievous antics of the squirrels. Staying early in the year did, of course, give us the advantage of being able to see the beautiful lake through the bare branches of the trees. We were fortunate to meet Shelagh who was really friendly and helpful. We just wish that Fernleaf Cottage wasn’t over 4,000 miles away from home, otherwise we’d be back to stay as often as we could.
