About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

We have some last minute days open at this large lake house and we would love to make a reservation for you with a 10% discount! Lake levels are coming up FAST and the air is warming up. You will enjoy every season as each offers its own special delights for your group to enjoy in the North GA mountains: peaceful privacy, dock on quiet cove, spacious and lovely home with fun for all. Please take a minute to look at our reviews: we hope all our guests go home saying 'That was a perfect place and a great stay!'

The main level at Kedra feels like a peaceful mountain lodge with wood floors, pine-paneling, and a stacked-stone gas fireplace in the family room. This is open to the dining room with seating for 14, and our heavily equipped 3-cook kitchen. The master bedroom is also located on this level and windows line the rear of the house allowing for great views. You can step onto the covered porch to pass the afternoon in a rocking chair or porch swing.

Upstairs you will find two enormous bedrooms each outfitted to sleep a family, as well as a full bathroom. We decorated our cabin with a 'bed-&-breakfast' feel, with each bedroom having its own unique character. The lower level may be your center of activity where you can have friendly competitions in air hockey or playstation, relax by the tv, or head to the lake. Also located there are two more bedrooms and a full bath. The crowning feature in the back: walk the 75 yards down the gently-sloped property to a large firepit, sandbox, and 100 feet of lake front with a private dock and canoe on a quiet cove for swimming.

Our cabin is on a beautiful, low-traffic TVA lake and a pontoon boat is available for rental. (Please note that Lake Nottely is lowered in the winter months and during drought seasons by the TVA). The town of Blairsville is sleepy and quaint but still has plenty of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment options to suit everyone's desires. (Go to the Union County Chamber of Commerce web page for more information.)

In the end, it is our previous guest's own words that say the most about our cabin: 'beautiful... thank you for the warmth and hospitality of your home... home away from home... elegant... 2 weeks was not enough... all of our needs were met by your preparations... spacious and clean... very realxing... family friendly... we will be back!'

About Kelly Finley

Welcome to our vacation home, Kedra on the Lake! We are Ralph and Ann and we are retired and live in the Metro Atlanta area. We have 4 married children and 6 grand kids who we love like crazy and with whom we share many wonderful times at Kedra through out the whole year. We would love for you to bring your crowd here too and please know that you will be treated like a treasured guest!

Kelly Finley purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Kelly Finley chose North Georgia Mountains

Lake Nottely in Blairsville has the perfect combination of charm, convenience, natural beauty and remoteness that makes our trips up there so enjoyable. There is lots to do but you don't have to fight a crowd of other vacationers to do it! The house is huge and is easy for more than one family to share, giving us each a little space to breath and plenty of room to share.

What makes this cabin unique

Each year we add to our list of things to do, taking expeditions to find new and interesting adventures. Of course, the lake is the biggest draw... fishing, canoeing, boating, swimming; it is all heaven on this lovely, peaceful lake. We also enjoy tubing and rafting down the rivers, golfing, hiking to waterfalls, shopping and eating out at our favorite restaurants. Probably our favorite outing is to Vogel State Park, a must-do on every trip. Mostly it is time spent together, making memories and getting refreshed from the peacefullness and beauty.

Guestbook comments from the manager


Thanks much for the rental of your lake home in Blairsville. Kedra was great for our family reunion. We did rent the small cabin called “granny’s cabin” in order to have 2 additional bedrooms. It was only about 2 miles away (5 minutes), back down Pat Colwell. The owners are a very nice couple from Florida. I would highly recommend their cabin to others you rent to who need 2 addtl bedrooms.

I trust your cleaning people will find Kedra in great shape. We always take great care to leave our rentals in the best of condition. Although the water was cold, our family enjoyed two days of perfect weather and a quiet scenic retreat. We actually all left on Sunday afternoon, as only one group of three was able to stay the 3rd night. We will place your VRBO number in our vacation file for the future. And I have already provided it to a friend looking for a place this summer.

Thanks again,

May 2014

It was very roomy, clean, and had everything needed for our visit.

  • 5 of 5

May want to call a plumber, apparently there is a quirky sound that has been happening for a while. But the good thing is, I never had to go upstairs or downstairs to see if someone awake because the sound after someone flushed the potty there was a fuuny squilly sound & thus I would know someone was up & moving around.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us

It was perfect for my husband's 70th birthday gathering. We had a blast.

Thank you so much,

Gloria Mix

Beautiful home

  • 3 of 5

The water pipes/and toilets have a horrible ringing sound that needs to be fixed. We mentioned this last time we stayed here. It is very very annoying. We probably won't stay here again because of it. We were also disappointed that the lake water level was so low but it's not anything you can can fix. Also we would suggest that you place a bar of soap in every shower. And put extra toilet paper in the bathrooms so we don't have to go buy it.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to hear that this guest was not happy with theie experience. We had two plumbers look at the noise after this guest was in the home last year. It only happens in the winter months and has something to do with the pipes contracting or expanding and there was not an easy way to fix it without opening up walls etc. We are at the house quite regularly and have found it makes the noise for about 60 seconds after one toilet is flushed and we were not particularly bothered by it nor have we heard the complaint from other guests. Just a quick update on April 1, 2017. I am at Kedra now and flushed the toilet and timed the whining sound. It lasted 29 seconds. Upon arrival there should be a basket out that includes travel sized items including among other things shampoo and toothpaste and toothbrush and four bars of soap. I'm wondering if the guest missed it or if the cleaning lady accidentally forgot to put it out this time. I will discuss this issue with her as well as making sure that an extra roll of toilet paper is in each bathroom as has always been the policy.

Very nice property. Had a great time.

There was really only one thing that was disappointing. The lake was WAY down and we would have appreciated being forewarned about it. Apparently it had been down for quite awhile according to the neighbors.

Owner's Response: This guest is right, the lake is WAY down due to our severe drought here in GA. Please note that the chance of varying lake levels is posted on our listing and is also noted in our reservation agreement. We also currently have a fire ban and that alert is added to the final reminders we send guests before checking in. Unfortunately the TVA determines lake levels and during long periods of drought, the lake will get very low in addition to the fact that it is always drawn down to lower levels in the off season. With the colder weather making the lake less of a feature, we know there is plenty of fun, relaxation and activities to go around and we hope our guests are able to enjoy all the other amenities Kedra and the area offer!

Once again we had a wonderful long weekend a Kendra.

This was our Cousin trip for the year 2016.

Plenty of laughing, sharing memories of time passed, and of course shopping at Alexander's. With a lots of foods.

Already looking forward to our next trip Oct 2017.

Love This Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third family vacation at Kedra on the Lake, in the woods, in the hills. For two weeks our family (eight of us) canoed, fished, swam, skipped stones on the water, went for walks and hikes, played air hockey & PlayStation, grilled burgers, enjoyed a campfire, star-gazed, sat on the balcony swing, watched deer and turkey, took naps, watched movies, and read our Bibles together as a family. We also enjoyed Brasstown Bald, Pappy's on the River, and the Sorghum Festival at Meeks Park. This house is beautiful with a great view and we're looking forward to spending even more time here.
