'a beautiful place in a great, central location' 'close to everything, in a pretty lakeside neighborhood', 'delightful and accommodating', 'tastefully decorated and very clean' 'great home base' 'great vacation spot to fish, swim and share family times', these are just some of the comments our satisfied guests have said about Waterside Cottage on Lake Chatuge in Hiawassee.

Lake Chatuge is known for it's magnificent locations for swimming, boating, fishing and water sports. In the town of Hiawassee, the beauty of the lake and surrounding area with its water and mountain views is often referred to as 'the Enchanted Valley.'

Waterside Cottage is centrally located, within walking distance to the town of Hiawassee, in a lakeside neighborhood. There is easy Lake Chatuge access with a front lawn facing the lake. Within one mile of HWY 76 which takes you to the entire surrounding area, towns such as Clayton, Helen, Blue Ridge, Hayesville, and Franklin, are about a 30 minute drive. Take a trip over the great smoky mountains and visit Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Asheville or Chattanooga, all about a 2 1/2 hour drive.

Although there is NOT A boat dock, some guests bring their boats and tie up on a tie rod just offshore, or at the shoreline, or, pull kayaks onshore.

It is a gradual slope where you can wade out or stay close to shore.

There are marinas nearby to rent boats, or bring your own.

For the best experience at Waterside, add the use of the kayaks, paddle boat and bikes to your reservation for a fee of $65 per week. Swim, fish, boat, kayak or just relax at the waters edge. Watch the sunset over the lake and roast marshmallows around the firepit while the kids catch fireflies. Enjoy one of the many garden spots to relax, read a book, or soak up the sun.

Walk or bike to the town of Hiawassee (or take the 3 min drive), where you will find fine restaurants and fast food, upscale shops and old fashioned general stores. There is 'Music on the Square' every Saturday summer night, and a farmers market to buy local produce and crafts.

Just a 5 minute drive away is the renowned Georgia Mountain fairgrounds and Music Hall where there are festivals and concerts all year long.

Take the children to Funworld an amusement center, (7 min drive away), where they can catch a movie, ride go carts, play mini golf, or ride the mechanical bull, while you play golf or visit the spa at Brasstown Valley Resort.

Visit the nearby towns. Like Blue Ridge where you can ride the train though the mountains, or the bavarian town of Helen where you can tube down the river or enjoy the longest Octoberfest in the US, take a zipline in Sautee, or Blairsville. Visit Brasstown Bald, Georgia's highest mountain where the views will take your breath away. Hike the Appalachian trail, there is an entrance just a few miles away.

Lake Chatuge, with it's fishing depths of over 25 feet has produced several state record fish, including the hybrid striped bass and smallmouth bass. Fishermen and women of all kinds love fishing this lake, on and offshore catching the many varieties of fish here.

Boating, jetskiing and waterskiing is an exhilerating experience as you glide through the cool waters surrounded by breathtaking views of the mountains.

Inside Waterside, each room is decorated beautifully.

Upstairs, the loft area is stocked games, gaming tables and foosball. Next to the loft, is a guest room with 2 twin beds with 2 trundle twin beds. Trundle beds fit underneath the twin beds and pop up when in use.

The Master bedroom, (with king sized bed) has a bathroom with double sinks, a jacuzzi tub and a shower, There is a mini fridge to stock refreshments, and flat screen T.V. There is also a walkout balcony furnished with a chaise and wicker chairs to drink in the views of the lake and mountains.

I grew up spending my summers in the mountains of upstate NY and Vermont. I fell in love with the Hiawassee area because it reminded me so much of those areas I knew as a child. The pristine mountains and waters and the air that smells so fresh. Now my family and I live in South Florida, and altho we are blessed to live here, there is something so special about Hiawassee, we hope to live there someday.

Catherine purchased this house in 2005

Location, Location, Location, It is a mountain and lake community with funfilled summers and sometimes snowy winters. So close to everything, in a peaceful community on the lake. Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds with concerts and festivals is 7 minutes away! See link above.

Here you can experience the small town community of Hiawassee and the lake, or the surrounding mountains, but have all the modern conveniences in an easily accessible home that it gorgeous and comfortable. You can relax in quiet solitude at the house, go out on the lake and explore the undeveloped islands or join the community on the town square for an evening of great food and music, the choice is yours. Fine dining, casual fast food, great shopping, movies, theatre, the list goes on, its all here.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Waterside Cottage is a delightful home, nestled on the banks of Lake Chatuge...I was pleasantly surprised at how quaint and accommodating this beautiful cottage is. It's proximity to the lake for water activities (kayaking, sunning and fishing) as well as to the town (walking or short drive) make it the perfect place to relax and spend time outdoors. The hot tub was perfect and the nearby restaurants and vineyards are a real treat. We were lucky to be there during the Georgia Mountain Fair which made our stay even more fun...I highly recommend this home to anyone interested in a trip back in time to a simple, authentic and wonderful time...it's a great deal, you'll be very pleased!

Fall Colors

We had a happy week full of gorgeous fall colors and a very comfortable home by the lake.
We enjoyed this with another couple with whom we explored the many nearby trails and waterfalls in the state and federal parks. The "cottage" is tastefully decorated and thoughtfully equipped. While we did not have our children or grandchildren with us, the cottage is very suitably equipped for children with a game room and a fenced yard with a swing and a picnic table. We enjoyed sitting in the sun with a beverage and snack after a hike in the woods. The temperature dropped to near freezing at night but the home was quite comfortable. The small towns in the area are pleasant and unpretentious with shopping opportunities, and the traffic was light except around Helen, Georgia on the weekend. Go there in midweek.
We certainly will consider returning to the Waterside Cottage.

Stay at Waterside Cottage

What a great time we had at Waterside Cottage. The place was even more beautiful than the pictures show, with lake access and views. There was so much for the children to do, with a large front yard, firepit and the lake. We added the use of the boat shed to our reservation and used the kayaks, the paddleboat and bikes.
The children were able to watch movies in one living room, while the adults watched movies in the 2nd living room!
My husband and I enjoyed walks around the beautiful neighborhoods, and sunsets on the upstairs balcony. We loved the town, (so close) with its great restaurants and boutiques.
We look forward to returning in the summer.

Comfortable Retreat

This clean, comfortable, centrally located cottage was a great home base for my family's visit to North Georgia. We enjoyed the paddle boat and the close proximity to the swimming beach. We took day trips to North Carolina and South Carolina, cooked in and ate out. Papa & Luke (2) enjoyed watching Charlotte's Web for the first time one evening in the cozy den/dining room. The separate bed/bath suites - one upstairs, one down - worked great for 2 couples plus there was space for the toddler and the baby. Catherine was very gracious in helping us make last minute reservations. Wish we could stay again!

Waterside was a nice little cottage with a lake view. We enjoyed the fire-pit in the front yard. It's in a very quite community. The photos were a wee bit deceiving, it is much smaller than it appears. The owner was very easy to work with and did all she could to make our stay pleasant. Great fully stocked kitchen. Very clean.

Owner's Response: We are glad you liked Waterside. With its lake and mountain views, and close proximity to town, it is unique. The house and yard do appear quite large, and at over 2000 square feet of living area inside, there are many different areas of the home to enjoy. People especially like that it has 2 living rooms and 2 master suites! The large front yard, lakefront area and surrounding neighborhood are wonderful places for people to roam and enjoy the beauty of "The Enchanted Valley."
