Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Welcome! We just added a new video virtual tour link below that makes us want to be there now! Enjoy...

Nestled amongst Hiawassee’s rolling hills and horse farms in the shadow of Brasstown Bald, Fodder Creek Cottage blends settlers charm with contemporary elegance. Built in 2007 and winner of five design awards, our mountain retreat provides a perfect getaway for relaxation and romance.

Ideal for couples or a small family, Fodder Creek Cottage accommodates up to seven people. The downstairs offers an open floor plan with gourmet kitchen, great room with stacked stone fireplace and a guest bedroom fitted with a queen-sized log bed, pull-out trundle, and full bath. The luxurious master suite encompasses the second floor, providing a sanctuary within. The suite features cathedral ceilings, stone fireplace, wet bar with microwave, and café seating for two. The king canopy bed was commissioned to reflect the trees viewed from the large windows. A daybed with mountain views creates an idyllic reading nook and sleeps an additional two. The suite also features two bathrooms: one for him with shower, and one for her with a tub and large vanity.

You’ll want to sit for hours on the flagstone and wood patios entranced by the rush of Fodder Creek and the canopy of mountain laurel. The property winds along 500 feet of creek front, with holes deep enough to bathe. Trout have been caught in these spring-fed waters. We trust that Fodder Creek Cottage’s soothing magic will leave you refreshed and restored.

Just minutes from the Cottage door you’ll find beautiful Lake Chatuge (3.6 mi.) with its abundant water sports, downtown Hiawasseee (6 mi.), providing an array of restaurants, shopping and music, and the Georgia Mountain Fair Grounds (8 mi.). Outdoor sports for every taste abound-- golf, hiking, canoeing, whitewater rafting and kayaking, horseback riding, etc. Short drives to the Bavarian village of Helen, historic Hayesville, and the Cherokee valley towns make Fodder Creek Cottage a perfect home base for exploring the region’s diverse charms.

About The Owner

My husband's family has roots in the area that go back to the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, so these mountains are special to us and our two small children. My husband teaches at Georgia State University and enjoys hiking and whitewater canoeing. I am a massage therapist and enjoy gardening and the vistas afforded by Hiawassee and Lake Chatuge. Our children love playing in Fodder Creek, the beach at Lake Chatuge, and eating at the family-style restaurants in Hiawassee.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose North Georgia Mountains

After a long search, we were thrilled to buy Fodder Creek Cottage as our special retreat for enjoying family, friends, and the beauty of the North Georgia and North Carolina mountains. We instantly fell in love with Fodder Creek Cottage's unique architecture and dramatic, creekside landscape. Every time the mountain vistas of Hiawassee and Lake Chatuge come into view our hearts lighten and bodies relax. We feel most alive when we're recreating amidst these old mountains, so close to our Cherokee and settler roots.

What makes this house unique

The cottage nestles so close along Fodder Creek that its rushing song will relax you day and night. The matchless beauty of its unique, award-winning architecture will fill your memories for long after. When you venture out, everything you need is near and easy-- beautiful Lake Chatuge (3.2 m), shopping and restaurants in downtown Hiawassee (5 m), the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds (6 m), and Bald Mountain Park (300 yds). Easy drives to outdoor activities of every kind and Helen, Georgia make this the ideal mountain getaway.

We loved the cabin however did not realize until we were there that my younger 2 children would be sleeping in master suite with my husband and I:( I also was frustrated with busy road at the front of the cabin. However the cabin itself was lovely and clean and vey functional!

Perfect cabin for our weekend in Hiawassee!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this cabin! It was very tastefully decorated and had so many little extras we typically don't find in other rental cabins (I.e. Kitchen supplies). Loved the creek side view behind the cabin. It made us feel like we were in the mountains by ourselves. It was a very enjoyable stay. Thank you!

Very impressed!! (With cottage and surrounding area.)

  • 5 of 5

Although the cottage was hard to find in dark because of the trees, it was part of the charm and privacy.

The house is great..looks better than pictures. We LOVED the fireplaces! It rained and was cold most of the week. We could have stayed at cottage all week and listened to the creek because it is soooo relaxing. However, we ventured out everyday. Hiawasee is the most friendly town we had ever been to. Actually, all the places in the area was. Every shop owner, staff in every store or restaurant, tourist and locals we super nice. Even the police waved!! We talked to at least 5 people that said they came to visit Hiawasee and stayed! I can see why.

Things that are a must is to drive up to Brasstown Bald Hill. It's the highest point in GA and it's right behind the house. It started snowing when we went up and got so bad they closed early. We could see anything because of snow but it was a great place. The locals told us about Bell hill. It was a scary drive up and down because of narrow road and drop offs...but gorgeous! We bought a book of waterfalls in the area from the General Store down the road from the Dollar Store near house. We went adventuring and found several that we could drive close to. The best adventure was to Helen GA. It's a small town that resembles an old German town. It's like a small Gatlinburg. It has lots of gift shops, candy and ice cream shops, a bakery, restaurants, and Betty's IGA. We went pasted Helen and found a town called Sautee, it had a small general store and ice cream place and a few shops. On our way home we went past Young Harris and stopped at Gracie's Cottage that has all the metal art outside. Great prices and BIG selection if you like different metal decor for inside and out. We barely had room for all my purchase there!

Overall we had a great trip and we will be back!

Great place to unwind!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I absolutely loved our stay. The house was well kept and had all the little touches to keep a person happy and entertained. Loved the back yard and the babbling brook at the rear. I can't imagine a better place to relax. The owner was truthful and very helpful in helping us make the decision to spend some time there. If you're wanting to "get away", this is the place for you.
