Our lake getaway is the perfect place for a couple who wants peace and quiet or a family ready for adventure. The large picture windows and French doors let you see mist on the lake in the morning, watch the fishing boats as they quietly pass, and see the first skiers enjoying the water. The living area has a panoramic view of the lake without being too far from the water. Magnificent lake views can be seen from every room with a breathtaking mountain vista as the backdrop. Our cabin is across the cove from the US Forest service property so your view across the lake will be clear of docks. We are located at the deep water end of a wide cove which opens toward the main water of Lake Blue Ridge.

NEW!! Our 21 foot Lowe pontoon boat with fish finder is now available for rent with the cabin. The price is $300 per day, $500 for 2 days and $850.00 per week (plus tax).

Our house comes fully equipped with everything you need from cooking supplies to linens. We provide soap, dishwashing detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, cooking oil, and even some spices. BRING A BEACH TOWEL FOR THE HOT TUB OR LAKE.

About Ralph and Lori Fowler

We live south of Blue Ridge near Marietta but our hearts reside at the lake. We often drive to Lake Blue Ridge for the day or a long weekend. Our three children have grown up tubing, skiing, and fishing on the lake and love to bring friends to visit.

Ralph and Lori Fowler purchased this house in 1996

Why Ralph and Lori Fowler chose North Georgia Mountains

My wife's great grandparents owned a mill on Star Creek a few miles from our house when the lake was being built in the 1920's and her grandfather often swam across our cove with friends as a teenager. 'We have always thought that Lake Blue Ridge is the most beautiful, yet private, lake in Georgia.

What makes this house unique

Our home is situated on a cove away from the main lake traffic and only 5 minutes by boat from the Marina or Morganton Point Beach and public boat ramp.

The water is clear. You can fish right from our dock for Walleye, Pike, Bass, and Bluegill.

Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The weather was very unsettled but my 15 yr old son and his classmate always had plenty to keep them occupied. The boat was fun, as was the canoe. The fishing wasn't so good-but we enjoyed it anyways. My wife enjoyed the property so much that she made a 1 1/2 hr commute back from work 3 times during the week. Ralph and Lori have the house well furnished and there is every item you will need in the kitchen. We can't wait to go back! Thank you so much for having this beautiful getaway available. Truly a diamond!

Great place to enjoy our girls weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Overall our stay was great. I have stayed in several rentals, and this was by far the most well stocked one I've ever been in! We didn't go down to the lake or even get to hang out on the porch much because the weather was cold- but the view was beautiful. Unfortunately, the stairs were very slick. One of the girls slipped down them and brought home a nasty bruise. (Something extra slick about the 3rd one down- we all seemed to slip on that one.) Otherwise, the weekend was perfect- snow and all!

Perfectly relaxing and fun

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at WatersEdge. The house was immaculate and had everything we needed. There was something fun for everyone to do. We had a great time playing ping pong, kayaking and canoeing, soaking in the luxurious hot tub, and siting on the deck enjoying the beautiful sunset view by the warmth of the outdoor fire. We would recommend this home to anyone who wants to spend a relaxing weekend in the North Georgia mountains.

Great stay at Lake Blue Ridge

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at Waters Edge as the accommodations were great and the owners really planned for everything. The kitchen was stocked with all we needed and everything was neat and clean. We enjoyed looking out at the lake and went out several times in the canoe. It was quite and out in nature but town was not far away. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to relax on the water.

Beautiful house, stunning view, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Really want to thank the owners for a great experience for our fall break. The house is exactly as described and everything was clean and in good repair. You can tell they take pride in providing an excellent experience for their renters. The game room was a big hit with two teenage boys to keep busy! We also rented the pontoon for the whole stay and were so glad we did. I think we spent every night outside on the deck for a while to see stars we can't see closer to the city, and the fire table was a relaxing addition to those nights. The weather cooperated perfectly, and we had a fantastic week with family. Can't imagine a nicer place to stay.

Wow! Great House for Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved the fantastic view of the lake from every room. The house sits really close to the water. It's easy to go down to the lake, no long hike through the woods. We especially liked the outdoor rockers, pontoon boat, good WiFi, nice furnishings, and giant bean bags.

We rented the pontoon boat one day, came back for lunch, then went out again in the late afternoon. The water was as smooth as glass. We can't wait to come back. Best lake house we've ever stayed at.
