Set in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, on the shores of the beautiful Lake Chatuge, you'll find one of Hiawassee's most welcoming getaways with spectacular lake and mountain views! Careful thought and planning went into the complete remodel of this sprawling lakefront resort with separate upper and lower units, providing several options to accommodate couples or groups of up to 19. Bend of the River is designed for reunions, retreats, and family vacations while enjoying your own privacy.
Bring your boat or rent from one of the nearby marinas and tie up to your own your private dock. Guests may soak in the hot tub, use the pedal boat, relax by the fire pit or on our arbor swing that overlooks the new pavilion, complete with a grilling area. Activities on the grounds include volley ball/badminton, bocce ball, horse shoes, corn hole, kayaking, canoeing, a miniature putting green, ping-pong, or billiards in the game room. Enjoy end-of-the-road privacy with ample parking. Just imagine, all of this and still only 10 minutes from shopping, churches, restaurants and entertainment. 'Bend of the River' - where ordinary takes a turn toward extraordinary!
Bend of the River is Flexible With Options For All!: In all, there are a total of 9 bedrooms and 6 baths, 3 full kitchens and 1 kitchenette, and 4 fireplaces. Perfectly suited for corporate or church retreats, planning seminars, reunions or family get-togethers for any occasion (especially for the holidays), Bend of the River caters to adults, but responsible families with well-behaved children are most welcomed. Sorry, but no pets allowed, no exceptions, and the property is strictly 'Non-smoking' throughout.
Share mountain views and lifetime memories at Bend of the River, where you can relax, refresh, and renew.
The house had everything we needed and more! All those kitchens were perfect for preparing meals--both group and individual. The indoor and outdoor spaces were amazing! The house was clean and well-stocked. Couldn't ask for a better set up for our family. Thanks!
The cabin was fantastic! Everything was decorated perfectly for Christmas. There was plenty of space for our big family. Everything was clean and anything you could need was provided. Gail was fantastic to work with. I would definitely recommend a stay here and we plan to visit back soon as well!
Well, I think this is my group of twelve fifth year visiting this fabulous Home Away From Home retreat. Always perfect. Each year there are improvements especially down at the campfire area by the lake. Management is always available and the customer service the best. Bring your friends and family they will not be disappointed.
What a great time we had at Bend of the River for our family reunion! It's a beautiful location with peaceful water in a cove. We rented boats and jet skis and we were out on the water every day. We fished off of the dock and kayaked all around. We had a dance party in one of the main living areas and played dominoes- so much fun for all age groups. With 2 washer/dryer sets, my sisters and I could do our family laundry throughout the week. The house is so big that you can find a quiet spot when you need to. Thanks Gail, working with you was a breeze. Hope to see you again at Lake Chatuge!!
We stayed with our family of 17 at this beautiful property for only 3 nights, and wished we would have rented it for one week. This house went beyond our expectations : beautiful lake view, very spacious, lots of amenities, and the grounds are well maintained. The location is just perfect, and only 7 minutes away from Ingles.
We would suggest for the owner to post new pictures, because the pictures on the web do not do any justice.
Gail, the manager, did an excellent job at making sure that our family had the most wonderful time.
We have already recommended this house to friends, and our family will be back very shortly.
Thank you for opening your house.

We picked Bend of the River for our big family vacation this year. 13 of us. We ALL thought this was the best place we've ever stayed - and we've been doing an annual time together for at least 26 years. There were so many activities to do at this place. The youngest in our group was 15 and the oldest was 78. There was something for everyone. We rented a boat from Boundary Waters Marina to add to the water fun. Kitchen was pretty well-stocked and there was plenty of room for all of us to enjoy our time together. I've already recommended Bend of the River to a few of my friends!
