In other words, picture yourself at Morgan Ridge Cottage.

About Jerri Delaney

We are retirees living in the mountains of North Georgia. In addition to Morgan Ridge Cottage, we are co-owners of the Hiawassee Antique Mall. So even though we are "retired", we are seldom done working! Morgan Ridge is our guest house that we bought for family and friends to use, and it sits adjacent to our residence. We are proud of the reputation and following we have acquired after 11 seasons, and look forward to many more.

Jerri Delaney purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Jerri Delaney chose Hiawassee

Morgan Ridge is located about 5 miles outside of the downtown area of Hiawassee. It is nestled in a quiet neighborhood, about half of which is vacation homes. The remainder homes are full-time residents. If you want peace and quiet, then you will love it here!

Morgan Ridge Cottage, North Georgia Mtns

  • 5 of 5

My goal in going to Morgan Ridge was a quiet, relaxing vacation with my daughter. The cottage was very comfortable and clean and the ammenities were fantastic. Whether you want to sit on the spacious rear deck and enjoy the view or take a rigorous hike to magnifcant waterfalls that are closeby, the area has something for everyone. I have already recommended your cottage to family and friends. Thank you for being so gracious.

Wonderful Mountain Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great little 2 bedroom 1 bath cottage. It has everything you need for 2-4 guests. Exactly as the photos show on VRBO. Jerri and John have a love of 4 legged furry friends and they extend their love to the Cottage. The Cottage is situated in a little-slice-of-heaven. In the cool morning air we sat on the beautiful wrap porch with a cup of hot coffee and watched the bunnies and squirrels run around their property. We had a wonderful time. The Cottage had everything we needed for our week stay.
