Overview

Blairsville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Three Bedroom, Three Bath Cabin With Lake Views From Every Room. Sleeps 8.

Lake Escape is an incredible cabin on the shores of Lake Nottely, a huge mountain lake covering 4180 acres with 106 miles of shoreline. Enjoy the year-round lake view from the wall of windows or the expansive deck and porch areas. Take a short walk down the gentle slope to the water's edge to enjoy everything the lake has to offer. Take the cabin's three-person canoe out and explore the lake year-round. Tie up your own boat or bring a rental boat to Lake Escape's private boat dock, which is useable during the warm months (May through September), when the water elevation is maintained at recreational levels. Enjoy the lounge chair seating and horseshoes by the fire ring at the water's edge. At night, jump in the outdoor hot tub with lake view, shoot a game of pool, or watch a Blu-ray movie in front of the fire. Lake Escape is only 25 minutes from the Harrah's Valley River Casino in Murphy, NC. The cabin is only 20 minutes from Blue Ridge and less than 15 minutes from Blairsville, in the heart of the area with North Georgia's highest mountain peaks. The range of nearby outdoor activities is almost unlimited. There is paved road access all the way to the cabin, including the driveway.

Lake Escape is a large cabin, with over 2400 sq. ft. of finished space, three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. It has a convertible ping pong/pool table, hot tub on the lower patio facing the lake, Pawley's Island hammock on the screened porch, two fireplaces, and two TVs. The spacious lodge-style interior sleeps up to eight. The main level has a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, great room, and dining area, all under a cathedral ceiling. The great room has a gas-log fireplace, DISH Network satellite high definition TV with over 100 channels, and a wall of windows with a great view of the lake. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and a breakfast bar/island. A large bedroom with queen bed, a full bathroom with tub/shower, and a laundry area with washer and dryer complete the main level. Exterior doors from that level lead to the covered porch with gas grill, the open deck, and the large screened porch with hammock and dining table. Up the stairs from the great room is the private master suite with a large bedroom with king bed and seating area, a walk-in closet, and a master bath with tub/shower. The cabin's lower level has a large game room with gas-log fireplace, DISH Network satellite high definition TV with over 100 channels, convertible ping pong/pool table, and queen sleeper sofa. There is a year-round lake view from the room, as well as from the patio with hot tub outside the French doors. The lower level also has a bedroom with twin beds and a third full bathroom with tub/shower.

The three-person canoe with lifejackets and paddles is provided for our guests year-round at no additional charge.

We provide everything for your stay except food and personal items.

Great lake escape!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate Father's Day weekend this year with my in-laws. There was plenty of room for the adults and kids and the house was awesome. We hung out at the dock all day on Saturday and also enjoyed the hot tub. Although we didn't take advantage of it, it was nice to have a canoe available without having to lug it up there. We had a great time and are already talking about going back!

Highly Recommend - Fabulous Cabin in the woods with Lake Access

  • 5 of 5

The cabin doesn't look like much from the outside, but when you walk inside it is stunning. The cabin features a deck that wraps around the entire house and one side is screened in with a table outside that can be used eating outside. The inside has beautiful hard wood floors, floor to ceiling wooden walls (Pine I think). It is an A-frame in the living room with floor to ceiling windows that are beautiful. A fabulous gas fireplace with rock work hearth and mantle. The gas fireplace puts out a ton of heat and looks beautiful. The furniture is very comfortable and looks very nice in the main room. The kitchen table sits 6 easily and you can fit more if needed. The kitchen has an island with two stools to seat two more comfortably. The counters are granite and the appliances are upgraded fridgedaire and worked great. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you will need except one item that we could not find, a can opener. The bedrooms were very spacious and the beds very comfortable. Downstairs has two pull out coaches, the same fantastic fireplace as the upstairs and a nice pool table that has a ping pong top that can be used on the pool table. The hot tub is outside the basement doors on the patio and is extremely nice. it may seat 8, not sure, I know 4-6 had no issues, it has beautiful lighting at night and everyone just loved it. It seemed to be very new and a top of the line model. It is a short walk, maybe 40 yards to the lake with a very nice floating dock. there is also an area to do an outdoor fire that we took advantage of one afternoon to do a hot dog roast. To go to Blairsville is approx. a 15 minute drive and there is a walmart supercenter about halfway to town. The wives and kids went to town to see a movie one afternoon, and we went to town to eat one night and the drive was quite easy. We will be returning in the future.

Best 4 day weekend ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and by that I mean cozy, quiet, clean, and very rustically decorated. I took my fiance and the only complaint we have is that fact that we had to leave and go back to work on Monday...This was the third of John Orr's properties we have stayed in and is our new favorite!! Wanted to take the canoe out but it was just to cold however we did enjoy playing pool and ping pong in the down stairs game room. Had no desire to leave the cabin once we got there so we just grilled out. I definitely would recommend Mountain river cabins. John was very professional and even aloud us a late check out when we left on Monday. The pictures do not do the cabin justice!! It is even more beautiful in person!!!

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this vacation. The kids loved the game room and the canoe. The cabin is very spacious and clean. Close to all the great spots for day trips. Only about 15 minutes from The Swan Drive-In. One of the last functioning drive-in movie theaters. We would love to come back and would recommend this place to everyone.

Great stay, great property

  • 5 of 5

Right before we arrived there was a burst water pipe I believe, the manager contacted me to let me know in advance and apologized and said he would adjust the rate to accommodate any inconvenience. The clean up was thorough and professionally done and didn't really effect our stay, we loved the property and had an amazing weekend. Just note, like you see in the description, and as is the case with many lakes, the water level is low in the Fall. One of the pictures shows that rather well. You can still get out there and swim or canoe though!
