About Jan McKay

We are Jan and Bill McKay. Our wonderful home on the lake has been the source of great water fun, beautiful scenery, family memory making in surroundings that are some of the most beautiful in the smoky mountains.

Jan McKay purchased this house in 1995

Why Jan McKay chose North Georgia Mountains

We have always wanted a vacation home on a lake and were invited to Lake Blue Ridge years ago by some friends who owned a home here. When we stood on their porch and took in the lake view, it's beauty and mountainous smoky blue backdrop we knew that this was the lake for us.

What makes this house unique

We saw this home just one time while it was under construction and made an offer the same day. That was over 20 years ago. Our children were small and spent their summers here until they were grown. Now they bring their families and friends here at every opportunity.

My family and I rented this gorgeous home for 5 days over the July 4th holiday and had one of the most memorable experiences we have ever had. The kids are still talking about the fun they had white water rafting on the Ocoee River, seeing the movie at the Swan Drive-In and the many fun hours spent in the hot-tub and on the dock jumping into the lake. The house accommodate all of our needs and the surroundings were so relaxing. We'll definitely be back for more R&R.

Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

This property was very beautiful. The home had pretty much any and everything you would need in a stay at Blue Ridge. The dock was also amazing and most peaceful. Everything was well maintained and very clean. I would definitely recommend this property to all for a comfortable and pleasant stay in Blue Ridge.

Perfect family get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed here for a week in June. This was our first "Lake Vacation", and it was much more fun than the beach!! I got to relax all week on the incredible rocking chair porch that overlooks the lake, while the kids kept busy swimming, fishing, paddling, white water rafting, and even jet-skiing.

The house is beautiful and very well appointed, with easy access to the lake, and big enough for a large family. Blue Ridge offers tons to do if anyone wants to leave the house for a bit. Final request from the kids..."Let's come back here next time!" Needless to say, no one wanted to leave.
