About the property

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 early 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, DirecTV satellite and 43" 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, DirecTV 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.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

John, thank you for letting us stay at this beautiful cabin. It was such a great price for the size and quality of the home, and was well accommodating with all of the essentials such as towels, pots/pans, dishes, etc. The property itself was beautiful, clean, and peaceful. We enjoyed waking up and walking down by the lake & had a great time relaxing and grilling out with our friends. The hot tub was also perfect for the cold nights! Overall, and for the price, this cabin is beautiful and was very clean and well kept. We stayed here to disconnect for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was exactly what we wanted it to be. We will most definitely be back, and we already have a couple of friends interested in renting it for themselves very soon. See you next time, lake escape cabin!

Much needed rest and relaxation from the city

  • 5 of 5

I must admit, this trip was a blissful escape from the busy life of the city. We enjoyed the amenities such as canoeing and the jacuzzi. We will definitely stay again. When you walk in, you’re absolutely amazed. The TVs have been updated, but if you’re life me.... addicted to netflix and casting your own apps.... bring your ruku. Everything you need to know is in the visitor guide.

What I wish I knew before I stayed....

Bring a swimsuit for the jacuzzi (we made several trips to walmart.)

Bring house slippers, robes, and extra towels.if you plan on washing, bring your own laundry detergent. Don’t be alarmed by the squirrels scratching in the window ( I thought someone was walking in the roof.) bring life jackets for canoeing, some are provided but it may not fit or be enough for your family. We had to buy one for our daughter. Bring an echo or Bluetooth speaker to play music on.

Enjoy your stay. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful Home, Quiet and Nice

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay. The owner was quick to respond to our booking request. The home needs a detailed clean. On the top of the refrigerator and cabinet faces had grease and dust buildup on them. The appliances are in working order and the hot tub was a nice addition. The place was perfect for our family of 5. Thanks for opening your home to us.

It is a beautiful cabin in the woods with good WiFi. I had to work while I was there so I was able to get my work done quickly then have time to spend with my family. The cabin was clean, easy to find with my GPS, instructions were clear, and had all the features stated. I will love to come back.
