FALL, CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEARS AT BEAUTIFUL LAKE HOUSE!

Blairsville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

You will enjoy every season as each offers its own special delights for your group to enjoy in the North GA mountains: peaceful privacy, dock on quiet cove, spacious and lovely home with fun for all. Please take a minute to look at our reviews: we hope all our guests go home saying 'That was a perfect place and a great stay!'

The main level at Kedra feels like a peaceful mountain lodge with wood floors, pine-paneling, and a stacked-stone gas fireplace in the family room. This is open to the dining room with seating for 14, and our heavily equipped 3-cook kitchen. The master bedroom is also located on this level and windows line the rear of the house allowing for great views. You can step onto the covered porch to pass the afternoon in a rocking chair or porch swing.

Upstairs you will find two enormous bedrooms each outfitted to sleep a family, as well as a full bathroom. We decorated our cabin with a 'bed-&-breakfast' feel, with each bedroom having its own unique character. The lower level may be your center of activity where you can have friendly competitions in air hockey or playstation, relax by the tv, or head to the lake. Also located there are two more bedrooms and a full bath. The crowning feature in the back: walk the 75 yards down the gently-sloped property to a large firepit, sandbox, and 100 feet of lake front with a private dock and canoe on a quiet cove for swimming.

Our cabin is on a beautiful, low-traffic TVA lake and a pontoon boat is available for rental. (Please note that Lake Nottely is lowered in the winter months and during drought seasons by the TVA). The town of Blairsville is sleepy and quaint but still has plenty of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment options to suit everyone's desires. (Go to the Union County Chamber of Commerce web page for more information.)

In the end, it is our previous guest's own words that say the most about our cabin: 'beautiful... thank you for the warmth and hospitality of your home... home away from home... elegant... 2 weeks was not enough... all of our needs were met by your preparations... spacious and clean... very realxing... family friendly... we will be back!'

About Kelly Finley

Welcome to our vacation home, Kedra on the Lake! We are Ralph and Ann and we are retired and live in the Metro Atlanta area. We have 4 married children and 6 grand kids who we love like crazy and with whom we share many wonderful times at Kedra through out the whole year. We would love for you to bring your crowd here too and please know that you will be treated like a treasured guest!

Kelly Finley purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Kelly Finley chose Blairsville

Lake Nottely in Blairsville has the perfect combination of charm, convenience, natural beauty and remoteness that makes our trips up there so enjoyable. There is lots to do but you don't have to fight a crowd of other vacationers to do it! The house is huge and is easy for more than one family to share, giving us each a little space to breath and plenty of room to share.

What makes this cabin unique

Each year we add to our list of things to do, taking expeditions to find new and interesting adventures. Of course, the lake is the biggest draw... fishing, canoeing, boating, swimming; it is all heaven on this lovely, peaceful lake. We also enjoy tubing and rafting down the rivers, golfing, hiking to waterfalls, shopping and eating out at our favorite restaurants. Probably our favorite outing is to Vogel State Park, a must-do on every trip. Mostly it is time spent together, making memories and getting refreshed from the peacefullness and beauty.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Kelly,

Thanks much for the rental of your lake home in Blairsville. Kedra was great for our family reunion. We did rent the small cabin called “granny’s cabin” in order to have 2 additional bedrooms. It was only about 2 miles away (5 minutes), back down Pat Colwell. The owners are a very nice couple from Florida. I would highly recommend their cabin to others you rent to who need 2 addtl bedrooms.



I trust your cleaning people will find Kedra in great shape. We always take great care to leave our rentals in the best of condition. Although the water was cold, our family enjoyed two days of perfect weather and a quiet scenic retreat. We actually all left on Sunday afternoon, as only one group of three was able to stay the 3rd night. We will place your VRBO number in our vacation file for the future. And I have already provided it to a friend looking for a place this summer.



Thanks again,

Gloria

**!Kendra on the Lake was a PERFECT fit for our group!**

  • 5 of 5
Six adults and five children ages 4-12 y/o stayed the weekend for a triathlon in Dawsonville (It was a quick drive down 19 to get to the race on game day.). It poured buckets with lightening the majority of the weekend, but the kids had a ball with a run of the downstairs with air hockey, their own rooms and a large area to hang out and watch TV or play video games on a PlayStation II that was on site with games. A ping pong tournament in the garage kept us busy while dad grilled on a grill that was also on site. For two hours on Saturday, we jumped in the canoe and took off around the lake. The best part of the stunning property aside from it being so family friendly, is that it is well stocked. Unlike some rentals, there are paper products upon arrival which made the first hours enjoyable as we settled in without needing to rush to the store immediately in order to function. Swinging on the porch with the grand kids was Grandpa & Grandma's favorite spot. I hiked around Vogel State Park and nabbed a geocache. Dad shopped for jalapeno jelly at Pappy's. Thanks a thousand times for a most restorative weekend outside the hustle and bustle of Atlanta and Cincinnati.

Family Reunion with lots of boating and water sports - we're coming back again next year

Family Reunion with lots of boating and water sports - we're coming back again next year
  • 5 of 5
Have been having annual family vacation at Lake Nottely ever since 1984. With our kids now married and with kids of their own, we outgrew our old, longtime rental place. So we moved to Kedra this year (summer 2014). House, property and setting is excellent for our needs. Rooms are very nice, have good flexibility for sleeping arrangements, kitchen is excellent for large groups and is well equipped, garage is nice for all the play things we bring along, the deck is very nice, fire pit is nice touch, dock is good. Good water for boating, tubing, wake boarding, etc, but need to take the boat under a bridge and a short distance away for those activities so the setting is still quiet and pleasant.

Steep, gravel driveway requires your close attention. We got careless at arrival and got one vehicle stuck. Keep drive wheels at down hill end of vehicle as warned in instructions, stay away from extreme right side of driveway as you face downhill, and keep vehicle pointed straight up the hill so weight is even on left and right side drive wheels. Do that and unless you have an empty, two wheel drive pickup you should be fine.

Best overall summary as to desirability of Kedra? Family unanimously voted to come back again next year. We've reserved it.

Other: Property very well maintained and clean. Nottely is nicest lake we've been to anywhere in the US. Listing quite accurate and owner exceptionally helpful prior to and during our stay. Good proximity (in the context of a lake house) to stores, restaurants, etc., but setting is far enough away from hustle and bustle to be peaceful and beautiful. We always cook in so have no restaurant recommendations. Have already recommended this property to others.

Wonderful Christmas house!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (9 adults, 3 kids, 2 toddlers) spent a lovely week at Kedra in Blairsville, GA. The house is wonderfully laid out so that everyone had their own space and we weren't constantly running in to each other. The house is also perfectly decorated- it is both beautiful and functional! There are plenty of fun things to do in the house (board games, Playstation, air hockey, movies, ping pong,etc) and out (relaxing on the beautiful porch,hiking, exploring the lake, shopping). Kelly was very easy to work with and we would definitely come back to Kedra if we are ever in the area again!!

Great Family Get away

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much Kelly, for letting us use your family home for our family vacation. You have such a wonderful place. My family of 13 stayed here for the holidays. Myself, husband, son, daughter in-law and their 4 children. My daughter, son in-law and their 3 children. There was plenty of room for everyone. One family upstairs, one family downstairs and me in the middle, it was great. Everyone had a wonderful time. The home was beautiful and clean. The pictures are great but you really have to see it in person. It was easy to get to and close to everything. The neighbors were great they set off fireworks for New Years, the kids loved them. We got to see snow the last day there, great for some of the grandkids that have not seen snow before. I would highly recommend this cabin for anyone with large famlies or big get togethers. This home is now on my favorite list for this area. Absolutely loved it, did not want to leave. You will love working with Kelly, she made everything so easy and comfortable, like you have known her for years. Again thank you so much for letting us stay. Bobby & Evelyn
