SPRING is coming early this year! Plan a pre-peak season trip to Lake Chatuge in April or May. The rates are deeply discounted, the weather is great, the lake is full and add the pontoon boat for your enjoyment. It is also time to book peak season and Fall, WHILE YOUR DATES ARE STILL AVAILABLE!

THE PATTERSON HOUSE, located on Elf Point is your opportunity to book a vacation in a pet friendly Lake Access home on a quiet point with a nice lake view and access to a community boat slip that comes with the optional use of a Pontoon Boat for your lake enjoyment! The Pontoon Boat Option is only $500 (Less than 1/2 the price if you rent from a Marina) for full usage during your stay and it is docked a short distance from the house. This well landscaped, well furnished, Lake Access home is located on Elf Point on the North Carolina side of Lake Chatuge. This is an older home with native rock veneer outside but has been totally renovated on the inside. Guests have commented that the pictures do not do the house justice, especially the inside, so we have added some new pics. It has two master bedroom suites and one other large bedroom. One master bedroom has a rock fireplace with gas logs, a king bed and a bath with a large jetted garden tub/shower. The other master bedroom has a king bed, sitting area and large bath with a jetted garden tub/shower. The third bedroom has two double beds and a large bath with jetted garden tub. All bedrooms have TVs. The kitchen has all appliances with a washer and dryer. The kitchen has a nice lake view. The den has a single pull-out sofa and TV. The living room has a queen pull-out sofa, Large Screen TV and also has an adjacent large bath with jetted tub/shower.

There is a screened porch, with lake view, located off the living room. The porch has a sitting group as well as a glass table with 6 dining chairs. There is a gas grill and an outdoor fireplace adjacent to the porch. The home is nicely furnished with crown molding and many extras on the inside. Access to a private community boat dock slip is nearby and optional use of A PONTOON BOAT is included in the rental. Elf Point is a quiet community that is great for biking, walking or running, with a large wooded TVA forest on the end of the point.

The full rental fee is due 10 days prior to arrival. Cleaning and pet fees are also due 10 days prior to arrival. The Pontoon boat will be full of fuel and oil but subsequent fill-ups are the responsibility of the user and the Pontoon must be left full of gas and oil.

Pretty view from the porch

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Only issue was the gas station on the lake was closed on the day we went out on the lake which was different from day we were told. Not the owners fault. Just had to cut the boat trip short. If you rent check hours first so you don't wait till last day like we did.

Great time on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time at the Patterson house. Cliff made the stay very relaxing, be able to get on the water on the boat was great. The beds were all very comfy, and the bathrooms were great. Nice kitchen for cooking family meals, and the screened in porch was an added bonus.

  • 4 of 5

We had a a great time at Patterson House. Although we had some problems with the pontoon boat, the owner responded promptly. The lake is beautiful and is a lovely setting. With 5 fully appointed bathrooms and great gathering areas, it is a perfect place for a large group. Lovely sunsets from the porch.

Great home, kind & helpful owner!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed a very relaxing stay at the Patterson House. Cliff the owner is very nice and accommodating. He was available when needed and offered recommendations to visit the Chatahoochie National Forest & Anna Ruby Waterfalls and local restaurants. The house is lovely, beds are comfortable, jetted tubs are great, boat is so fun, lake is amazing, location is very peaceful. We look forward to renting with Cliff again. Thanks for sharing your home & boat with our family!!

Fabulous First Time!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation started with an incredible fireworks show on the lake from the pontoon boat that comes with the house. That was really fun and a first for us! This house is very comfortable and relaxing! We really enjoyed the screened porch! Lake Chatuge is beautiful with gorgeous mountain views. Great swimming! We bought floats at Costco that were like lounge chairs for the water! Cliff the owner is very easy to deal with and quickly takes care of any hiccups. This was our first lake vacation and it was wonderful!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Met up with cousins and family for a great vacation at the Patterson Home in Hayesville, NC. This was a beautiful place and it comes with a Pontoon Boat. The mountain views from the boat rides are unbelievable. The home is at the end of a private road. The screened porch in the back has a view of the lake and the mountains. The home is large enough for about 8 people even though there was only 6 of us. We enjoyed playing ping pong and barbequing in the patio area. We enjoyed our walks through the quaint neighborhood and the location is only a few miles away from stores and restaurants. I would recommend Mary's Country Grill in Young Harris. I would also recommend visiting Brasstown Bald. It was breathtaking there. Mr. Hood instructed us well on the use of the boat and how to use the WiFi. I would recommend this VRBO rental to anyone who wants to get away from it all.
