STUNNING CREEKFRONT MOUNTAIN RETREAT

Hiawassee House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Welcome! We just added a new video virtual tour link below that makes us want to be there now! Enjoy...

Nestled amongst Hiawassee’s rolling hills and horse farms in the shadow of Brasstown Bald, Fodder Creek Cottage blends settlers charm with contemporary elegance. Built in 2007 and winner of five design awards, our mountain retreat provides a perfect getaway for relaxation and romance.

Ideal for couples or a small family, Fodder Creek Cottage accommodates up to seven people. The downstairs offers an open floor plan with gourmet kitchen, great room with stacked stone fireplace and a guest bedroom fitted with a queen-sized log bed, pull-out trundle, and full bath. The luxurious master suite encompasses the second floor, providing a sanctuary within. The suite features cathedral ceilings, stone fireplace, wet bar with refrigerator and microwave, and café seating for two. The king canopy bed was commissioned to reflect the trees viewed from the large windows. A daybed with mountain views creates an idyllic reading nook and sleeps an additional two. The suite also features two bathrooms: one for him with shower, and one for her with a jetted tub and large vanity.

You’ll want to sit for hours on the flagstone and wood patios entranced by the rush of Fodder Creek and the canopy of mountain laurel. The property winds along 500 feet of creek front, with holes deep enough to bathe. Trout have been caught in these spring-fed waters. We trust that Fodder Creek Cottage’s soothing magic will leave you refreshed and restored.

Just minutes from the Cottage door you’ll find beautiful Lake Chatuge (3.6 mi.) with its abundant water sports, downtown Hiawasseee (6 mi.), providing an array of restaurants, shopping and music, and the Georgia Mountain Fair Grounds (8 mi.). Outdoor sports for every taste abound-- golf, hiking, canoeing, whitewater rafting and kayaking, horseback riding, etc. Short drives to the Bavarian village of Helen, historic Hayesville, and the Cherokee valley towns make Fodder Creek Cottage a perfect home base for exploring the region’s diverse charms.

About The Owner

My husband's family has roots in the area that go back to the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, so these mountains are special to us and our two small children. My husband teaches at Georgia State University and enjoys hiking and whitewater canoeing. I am a massage therapist and enjoy gardening and the vistas afforded by Hiawassee and Lake Chatuge. Our children love playing in Fodder Creek, the beach at Lake Chatuge, and eating at the family-style restaurants in Hiawassee.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Hiawassee

After a long search, we were thrilled to buy Fodder Creek Cottage as our special retreat for enjoying family, friends, and the beauty of the North Georgia and North Carolina mountains. We instantly fell in love with Fodder Creek Cottage's unique architecture and dramatic, creekside landscape. Every time the mountain vistas of Hiawassee and Lake Chatuge come into view our hearts lighten and bodies relax. We feel most alive when we're recreating amidst these old mountains, so close to our Cherokee and settler roots.

What makes this house unique

The cottage nestles so close along Fodder Creek that its rushing song will relax you day and night. The matchless beauty of its unique, award-winning architecture will fill your memories for long after. When you venture out, everything you need is near and easy-- beautiful Lake Chatuge (3.2 m), shopping and restaurants in downtown Hiawassee (5 m), the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds (6 m), and Bald Mountain Park (300 yds). Easy drives to outdoor activities of every kind and Helen, Georgia make this the ideal mountain getaway.

Heaven on earth...

Just wanted to say, “THANK YOU” for sharing your little piece of heaven with us this past weekend. Your cottage is absolutely gorgeous and exceeded our expectations!
We had a great time celebrating our sons 13 birthday. He caught several trout out of the creek (most were very small, but he didn’t care) and the little boys had a blast just playing in the creek. My favorite part was sitting outside and listening to the creek, especially at night. The master suite upstairs was awesome! Love the decor and all of the special touches. You have put a lot of thought into this awesome retreat and we hope to visit again soon!

Our 2 year old summed it up in word...AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
The house is exactly what you see in the pics. We just left yesterday and miss it already, most relaxing vacation we've had in many years. The back yard, patio, and deck by the creek are just exactly what we needed for a small family get together. I would recommend this wonderful home to anyone looking for a get away.

An amazing retreat

  • 5 of 5
Yes, it is even better than the pictures! An absolutely lovely cabin in a beautiful setting. The upstairs suite is expansive and superbly appointed. The kitchen is large and accommodating. The outside is simply a beautiful setting on a babbling stream. Our party of four grilled outdoors, ate outdoors and in and sat by the deck literally next to the stream. The outside fire pit was well used. There's even a nice gentleman up the road who will sell you hard wood logs for 25 cents each. Everything worked as described. The owners preparation was excellent and the cabin was extremely easy to find. All in all this was a wonderful no worries retreat. Thanks so much for sharing your property with us. It was a joy...

The pictures are exactly as the house is upon arrival. We loved the house. It isn't too big but plenty of room to feel comfortable. The master suite is is really nice. My favorite was the firepit and creek. We loved the outdoor area. We will definately be back. Easy access to Helen, Young Harris as well as Hiawasee and Brasstown Bald. The owner was very nice, responsive and easy to work with. The house was very well maintained and clean. Definately recommend this rental.

We absolutely loved this place! The creek was so peaceful and not too cold for the kids in October. The cottage is beautiful. The master suite is very nice... love the rug!
Would love to return and stay longer. Short drive to Helen and Clayton. Highly recommend for those with kids and who love outdoors.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was an amazing rental with many activities. My family enjoyed the long days on the lake and the cool evenings by the fire pit with the stream in the background. The cabin is beautifully decorated and very easily accessible from town. I trailered my boat every evening and had plenty of parking space for it, 24', and my vehicle. This is definitely an annual event for my family now...Lake Chatuge is beautiful!
