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 is now available for rent with the cabin. The price is $300 per day, $500 for 2 days and $800.00 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.

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.

Doesn't get any better than this

  • 5 of 5

For such a reasonable price, it really does not get any better than this. Rent the boat too and you'll literally have everything you could think of to have a fantastic time: swimming, fishing and boating on the lake, fantastic views, all the modern accommodations. The owners are very responsive and they do everything in their power to ensure your needs are met. Will stay here again if we can.

The perfect family vacation in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at Waters Edge, it turned out to be the perfect vacation home for my family. I must say that the photos don't do the rooms justice. The loft was an ideal kids area, and sanctuary for my son, we played checkers and other games up there. My teenage daughter (who I thought would take the main level queen room), loved the terrace area room with adjoining bath. The master was perfect as well (seldom do we find beds as comfortable as the one we have at home). When we weren't out hiking, tubing, boating, ziplining, rafting, or train-riding we were downstairs playing family ping -pong or swimming in that gorgeous lake (I miss the coolness of that lake). The Fowlers are the perfect hosts, and we all can't wait to return next year!

Pros and Cons

  • 3 of 5

My sisters and sister-in-law rented this beautiful home for several days hoping to relax together and enjoy the lake. All of us are 60 yrs old or older...with 3 having some knee or hip pain making it difficult to get to the dock. The pictures are not representative of the incline or the number of stairs or the unsteady rock portion of the walkway going down to the dock. Fortunately my husband brought our pontoon boat over from Ellijay to meet us at the Marina and then take us to the swimming area to enjoy the water. We also had to call the owner about the "locked" thermostat to get it cooler in the house. He informed me that it will only go down to 73 degrees and when I told him we had "6 menopausal women having hot flashes!" he said he would see what he could do. I have to admit within several hours we could feel a difference...so grateful! All in all we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the cabin...the hot tub...and the covered porch since it did rain. But I would not recommend this place for the elderly or even young children who can't swim if your plan is to spend time in the water.

Owner's Response: We’re glad “all in all you had a good time” during your stay in Blue Ridge and we’re very sorry you had difficulty getting to the dock. This past week we added additional posts and a large rope rail across the 20 ft path from the bottom step to the shoreline. We’re very surprised you didn’t mention in advance that three of you have hip or knee pain and ask how many steps to the dock. Since Ellijay has similar terrain and is just 15 minutes from Blue Ridge, you were already familiar with mountain lake terrain. We had no idea that 2 flights of stairs (30 steps total) would be difficult for you. Since our house is on multiple levels, it would be impossible not to have some steps. If you review the photos on VRBO you will notice there are 10 photos of the outdoors and 9 of them accurately show that the house is higher than the lake level including photo 12 which accurately shows the stairs. Only 2 small steps are between the large level parking area and the main level of the house. Our house is not on the steep side of the lake. There is an additional flight of shoreline steps so you don’t have to walk over large shoreline rocks to get into the lake or onto the dock. We’re glad you called us to say you could only get the thermostat to go down to 73 degrees. When we checked it, we determined that after lowering the temperature several degrees, someone had accidentally touched the hold spot which is beside the down arrow. We decided not to mention it because we didn’t want to embarrass anyone. We felt bad that you had already had to text us about something else because you had forgotten to read the check-in instructions after requesting we email them to two of you. We share your concern about young children near any lake even children that can swim. We have 8 high quality neoprene life jackets in infant, child, and youth sizes for guests to use along with adult size life jackets and a variety of floats. Most guests feel comfortable with their children using the dock ladder and swimming off the end of the dock if they have a life jacket on. Of course it’s also possible to walk out into the lake beside the dock ramp where the water is less deep.
