Hiawassee Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Bend of the River: the ideal destination for your reunion or retreat

Set in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, on the shores of the beautiful Lake Chatuge, you'll find one of Hiawassee's most welcoming getaways with spectacular lake and mountain views! Careful thought and planning went into the complete remodel of this sprawling lakefront resort with separate upper and lower units, providing several options to accommodate couples or groups of up to 19. Bend of the River is designed for reunions, retreats, and family vacations while enjoying your own privacy.

Bring your boat or rent from one of the nearby marinas and tie up to your own your private dock. Guests may soak in the hot tub, use the pedal boat, relax by the fire pit or on our arbor swing that overlooks the new pavilion, complete with a grilling area. Activities on the grounds include bocce ball, horse shoes, corn hole, kayaking, a miniature putting green, or billiards in the game room. Enjoy end-of-the-road privacy with ample parking. Just imagine, all of this and still only 10 minutes from shopping, churches, restaurants and entertainment. 'Bend of the River' - where ordinary takes a turn toward extraordinary!

Bend of the River is Flexible With Options For All!: In all, there are a total of 9 bedrooms and 6 baths, 3 full kitchens and 1 kitchenette, and 4 fireplaces. Perfectly suited for corporate or church retreats, planning seminars, reunions or family get-togethers for any occasion (especially for the holidays), Bend of the River caters to adults, but responsible families with well-behaved children are most welcomed. Sorry, but no pets allowed, no excpetions, and the property is strictly 'Non-smoking' throughout.

Share mountain views and lifetime memroies at Bend of the River, where you can relax, refresh, and renew.

Fantastic Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Five couples stayed in this incredible multilevel lakeside house/cabin over the Labor Day weekend, and no one wanted to leave when it was time to go. I thought the pictures showed a pretty nice place, but the pictures don't do it justice. Everything is very well maintained, and Gail is very helpful including making sure we could watch the UGA v. Clemson game. Each couple had their own bdrm and bthrm so no privacy issues. The common areas were large enough to accommodate all of us for meals, and there are multiple kitchens so no one has to go far get to a refrigerator.
We enjoyed fishing, swimming, kayaking, horseshoes, putting, pool, and ping pong on the property and zip-lining within a 30 minute drive. We had so much to do, we never got a chance to try the hot tub.
The last thing everyone told me was to book again for next year, because they would definitely be back.

Absolutely wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5
My coworkers and I just recently had our yearly teambuilding retreat at this property. I have no words great enough to describe our time here. The landscaping and view made us feel as if we were in our own private oasis for the weekend. It was definitely the full weekend of laughter and relaxation that we all desperately needed. We did not want to leave!

One of our team members has a boat and they were able to pull it right up to the private dock. In the mornings, some of the men would head out on the boat and go fishing for several hours. Later in the morning and in the afternoon, we spent a ton of time just relaxing on floats alongside the dock and did some wakeboarding, tubing, etc. After preparing dinner and eating in the larger of the FOUR kitchen areas together each night, we would head to the lower level to enjoy some time in the incredibly large basement and out on the lower patio, which is located just outside the basement. On this lower level, we had a ton of fun playing pool, air hockey, ping-pong & foosball (they have them all!), as well as spending quite a bit of time relaxing in the hot tub! All of the several outdoor spaces are lit up with gorgeous lights, have plenty of seating and candles to keep the bugs away. We cannot thank the property manager enough for all of her help with making this teambuilding weekend retreat such a success. She was always beyond willing to help & very responsive.

As the team member in charge of making all the arrangements, I received MANY comments on how wonderfully this property worked out for our group. Everyone absolutely LOVED it & had an amazing time. As of right now, we are definitely planning on returning again next year, if not sooner (and hopefully for a longer stay)!!

I HIGHLY recommend this property for any large group getaways! You will NOT regret it!

The property was a delightful experience!

  • 5 of 5
The minute we walked in the door everyone broke into smiles. The decor was so warm and welcoming. There are touches of elegance and whimsy. We have rented several beach vacation homes and Bend in the River greatly exceeded our expectations for a vacation rental. We had four generations ranging from 3 to 68. Everyone's vote is to come back to the lake. The layout of the house was also perfect for us because it is broken down so that each separate family unit had its own space and at the same time all of us could have meals together and interact in the open spaces indoors and out. Having a dock and a boat was also an important part of the experience. We enjoyed canoeing and pedal boating and fishing off the dock.
We highly recommend this property.

This place was almost too good to be true! My wife and I have been organizing weekend getaway trips for couples celebrating Valentine's day for the past 10 years. This year we had 9 couples, and we had an amazing 3 days at Bend of the River! With all of the different kitchens and fun things to do it was perfect for our group! We highly recommend it to any group wanting to enjoy some time of fun with beautiful scenery!

The property was beautiful and very accommodating!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay very much! We enjoyed fishing and all the activities at the house. The house was a great fit for us in that we have two families with small children. They took one side of the house so the children could nap and go to bed early without the rest of us having to be quiet. The teenagers could hangout downstairs, but when we all wanted to be together we could! The house is decorated beautifully and was very clean and neat.
