Bend of the River: the ideal destination for your reunion or retreat
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 areas, 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 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.

Friend Group Getaway
This house and backyard were great for our annual friend group mountain house getaway. The backyard was beyond amazing for our kids to play in all day Saturday. We normally go for a hike during a mountain weekend and this year we decided not to leave the house since it provided so much entertainment inside and out.
Gail was beyond helpful throughout the process in helping answer questions and anything I needed during the process.
Our stay was good. A very comfortable and relaxing home. Quite comfortable for a large group of people.
Is a beautiful property. Wonderful for large groups!!
Very private & comfortable property. Would return!
Epic 80th Birthday Celebration
We celebrated our Grandma's 80th birthday at Bend of the River Lodge. It was a special weekend had by all. There were 4 generations.. from small children all the way up to 80 years old, and there was something for everyone to enjoy! The lake is gorgeous, the mountains are breath taking, and the icing on the cake is this fun packed property.
The set up of the home, with 3 kitchens, 9 bedrooms, multiple living areas and all of the games inside and out made for the perfect setting for our group. We will be returning in the future for more family gatherings!
We had a really great stay.. The accommodations we great for a lager group. Very relaxing.. Close to a grocery store.. A Wonderful view..
