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 long-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!

Great stay at "Eye Candy"!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Spring Break at Eye Candy. Beyond the incredible views (yes, they are incredible!), the home is very comfortable and located in a great area that is both quiet/relaxing and accessible to excellent activities, restaurants, etc. Doug is a great host who goes above and beyond the call of duty to help make sure things run smoothly. Great place that we'll certainly plan to visit again!

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.

Amazing View!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Eye Candy. The long range mountain views and the view of Lake Chateau were just amazing!! Doug and Becky are great hosts and their cabin was very comfortable and easy to get to. A definite recommendation to family and friends who are looking to visit the great town of Hiawassee. Thank you for our stay Doug & Becky!

Best Views Around

  • 5 of 5

The cabin has a pretty unique layout with a updated master bath and everything is clean and in good condition. The view from the hot tub is fantastic. Neighboring cabins are far enough away and situated in a way that you wont really see them. One of the 3 BR's is tiny but on the plus side has its own sliding glass door with a mountain view!
