About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Get ready to find your inner self and enjoy the peaceful tranquility that the North GA Mountains have to offer. Just come as you are and leave your stress behind for a couple of days or a couple of weeks.

Don’t be surprised when strangers wave and say hello, this is hard to find in today’s big cities, but that same easy going and wondrous lifestyle still exist in these mountains.

Be sure to check your old baggage at the Mountain’s footstep- pollution, traffic jams, loud planes, running late, confusion, crime, and stress; the bears, beavers, deer, eagles, wild turkeys and all the other wildlife want to keep it Simple, Clean, Fresh, and Peaceful.

We invite you and your family to our home, “Eye Candy” a.k.a. 'The Overlook' at Lake Chatuge; nestled in Ramey Mountain, high above the trees with Breathtaking Million Dollar Views Year Round!!! Just a few hundred feet from the protected United States National Forest, experience the Peace and Tranquility that the North Georgia Mountains have to offer.

Our guests can best describe 'The Overlook' at Lake Chatuge:

'A marvelous view, almost beyond words. You just have to see it. This mountain getaway has it all. It is quiet and relaxing, yet not too far from food and fun. Many excellent places to eat and shop nearby.'

'The atmosphere is charming and the home has all the necessary amenities. The wrap around deck is accessible from each bedroom. Take advantage of the grill on the deck or just spend some quiet time there. You must experience the hot tub at night and the sunrise in the morning. One of the better places we've stayed in some time.'

'What more can I say than AWESOME! This vacation rental is by far the best rental property I have stayed at in the North Georgia Mountains. The view of Lake Chatuge is breath-taking!'

'The rooms are spacious and the Great Room and all bedrooms have a wonderful view of the lake. This home away from home is warm, inviting, meticulously clean and decorated with a cozy mountain flair.'

'My family of 6 was more than comfortable with all the amenities provided. We only wish we could have stayed longer as the hot tub and spectacular view were delightful and so relaxing - the highlight of our trip! We cannot wait to go back and are planning our next visit this summer.'

'Very relaxing 3 days! I still can't get over the views. I could sit in that hot tub forever enjoying that scenery.'

'The split living plan was perfect for our peace of mind - kept the kids quietly separate. Place was spotless - and to answer an early question from you - I think all the kitchen provisions were perfect - nothing else I could think to add.'

'I liked the central location to all the surrounding attractions. The variety of quality restaurants up there is very good - I can't remember the name, but when you exit the community onto the main lakeside road, there is a great seafood place about 200 yards to the left on the lakefront, by the marina.'

'Good prices - GREAT Food! Can't wait to come back up this summer to do some boating!'

'Great place overall! Good luck with your new rental venture - I'm sure you won't have much problem keeping it filled up'

About Doug

I am a Georgia native, lived most of my life just North of Atlanta, enjoying the simple life, hate complexity and drama, so the mountains is where I want to spend my time relaxing. My wife is from Southern California she appreciates all the greenery that the North GA area has to offer.

Doug purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Doug chose Hiawassee

Our Family visited the area for the first time in 2004. It was love at first site, when we found this unique property, with a select few trees removed, this opened up incredible breathtaking views. The people were so friendly and air is so fresh, we knew right then this would be our final destination, where we would love to spend our vacations for years to come, and create many positive memories for our Family. I can't wait until the we can move up to the mountains and make our vacation home our permanent home.

What makes this chalet unique

There is something about waking up every morning and admiring the breathtaking landscape, year-round lake and log-range mountain views. The fresh air and the serenity of what nature has to offer. We love the wrap around deck that has great views from every spot. Our hot tub is so relaxing and also has million-dollar views day or night. Nights on the deck with the lights off is a lot of fun, looking at the stars on a clear night. Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves just to make sure we are not dreaming!

My friend and I just completed a 3 night stay at this home. We have visited the Blairsville area for the past 15 years and have stayed at many places for different lenghts of time. My only complaint was that our stay could not have been longer. The home is extremely well kept and comfortable. And what can be said about the view. It is "Incredible"

Thanks to Doug and Beckie for an extremely enjoyable and smooth transaction and for the opportunity to stay at your home.

Highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to experience a "Little slice of Heaven."

Owner's Response: We want "The Overlook" to be more than you expected, we love to hear back from our guest. Everyone needs to slow down and be at peace with mountains, breathe in some fresh air, and enjoy what life has to offer. It seems impossible, but when you walk out on the deck, and stare into the mountains, a calming feeling will take over your body. Try living the simple life for just a couple of days or a week, and leave your stress behind.

Absolutely GORGEOUS

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful stay here. It definitely was "Eye Candy"! Waking up to the scenery with the blinds open was beautiful. We even got snow on our last night.... Breathtaking. Doug was wonderful and easy to work with and made sure our stay was excellent. The hot tub was relaxing and very clean. The stay in this cabin made our anniversary trip perfect!

Breathtaking Views!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is awesome and the view was spectacular! I couldn't take enough pictures! Has everything you could need, very clean. So peaceful at night on the back deck in the hot tub. Just what we needed to re-energize! Owner Doug Adams made the rental process a breeze. Thank you Doug and working out dates to come back in the fall!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our week's stay at "The Outlook!" Doug is very helpful, giving us all the information we would need, not only about the house, but also about places to go, things to do, and good places to eat. For example, Doug suggested Fires Creek Recreational Area just over the GA border in NC. We hadn't been there before, and enjoyed it very much. It's a great place for a picnic along the river. We also went to several of the falls as well as Unicoi Park, Vogel State Park, Black Rock Mountain State Park, Blue Ridge, Ellijay, Helen, etc. There's lots to see and do in the area, and I wish we could have stayed longer. We were able to relax and enjoy the cool weather just like we wanted, plus, we enjoyed the hot tub, especially after taking road trips during the day to visit local sights. The layout of the house worked great, and we very much enjoyed sitting on the deck and soaking in the view of Lake Chatuge and the surrounding mountains. Thanks very much, Doug!

Great location and view

  • 5 of 5

We made a last minute getaway with the family of 5. House had everything to entertain kids from movies to board games to a hot tub. Plenty of space and nicely equipped. House was very clean and the views are unbelievable. Owners easy to deal with and checked in during our stay to make sure everything was okay.
