About The Owner
Me (Shari) and my husband (Andy) live in Johns Creek (suburb of Atlanta). I am originally from Atlanta & he is from NJ. We love to work out at Lifetime Fitness, take walks, & go to Northpoint Church. Our kids our pretty much grown, 2 boys each from previous marriages. We have an 18 year old cat who has become our baby.
The Owner purchased this chalet in 2007
Why The Owner chose Hiawassee
I was looking for a mountain property after my mother passed away. She was originally from Murphy, N.C. & I promised her that I would buy a place in the mountains. We live in the suburbs of Atlanta so this would be used as a vacation home. When I walked up the stairs & looked out over the deck & saw that view, I said, 'I don't even care what the house looks like because I want this view!' Everyone that comes up to our property says the same thing, 'You've got the Million Dollar View'. It is truly spectacular. Hiawassee is truly special because it is situated around Lake Chatuge & the layered Blue Ridge Mountains. Almost anywhere you go you will have a view because there is water & mountains all around the area. I like this area also because it is one of the highest areas in Georgia (Brasstown Bald is not far). It's much higher than Helen. If you drive from Helen there is a mountain range you go over & up to get to our place. It's only about 20 miles but the higher you go the prettier. We think so anyway.
What makes this chalet unique
We love that we are able to see the views from almost anywhere in the chalet upstairs. We can go outside & sit in our rockers on the deck & watch the sunset, have our morning coffee at the kitchen table or have a conversation in the living room & still have the views. There are 2 sets of sliding glass doors so it truly feels like the outdoors is brought inside. Another really cool sight is to wake up & look out & see the clouds below sitting on the lake with the blue mountains punching through the clouds. You'll be mesmerized with the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We see all kinds of wild life including black bears! One actually ran in front of us as we drove up our mountain looking back as he went to see how far back we were. He was fast. I love to watch the pileated woodpeckers with their big red tops or wild turkeys meandering around the place. It's always something new.

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. The views of lake and surrounding mountains were beautiful. The pictures on website match what you see in cabin. The cabin is very clean and decorated nicely. The atmosphere was relaxing and peaceful, yet there is plenty to do nearby. We went boating on Lake Chatgue, white water rafting in NC, panned for gold up in Dahlongea and went up to highest mountain in Georgia. The restaurants nearby are great, we ate at Michaelee's chocolate caffe, Chop House and Brothers at Willow Ranch. I would recommend this cabin for those looking for a great vacation, whether you just want to relax all day at the cabin or stay as busy as you want with nearby activities! We would love to come back, it was hard to leave!
