About the property

Young Harris, Georgia

Live in the lap of luxury when you stay at this stunning Young Harris vacation rental home, ideally situated on over 200 feet of Lake Chatuge shoreline. This elegant residence resembles a beautiful Swiss country chalet, making it the perfect home base for your Georgia lake getaway! Located only 30 minutes from the Valley River Casino in Murphy, its the perfect location for a group in town to gamble - the casino hotel is booked for two years!

With 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and enough sleeping arrangements for up to 12 guests to spread out among a vast 6,000 square feet of beautifully appointed living space, this house is an ideal accommodation choice for a family or group of close friends out for a rejuvenating retreat on Lake Chatuge. This 3-level home is especially perfect for a special occasion or multi-family reunion, boasting 2 full kitchens on 2 different levels and dual entrances, for added convenience and privacy.

From the moment you first arrive, this impeccably designed and maintained home makes a statement! The exterior is composed of authentic Tennessee Fieldstone, which you'll also find in the master bathroom’s fully enclosed steam shower and spa. You’ll love spending leisurely afternoons on the large decks, admiring breathtaking views of Lake Chatuge’s sparkling waters expanding beyond the property’s immaculate grounds. The expansive grounds boast wonderful outdoor features, including a center pergola, perfect for romantic evening strolls, and a cozy fire pit, situated on the water’s edge. During your stay here, you’ll also have access to a private boat dock, located on the adjacent vacant lot.

The home’s opulent interior features impeccable decor in every room, plush furnishings, and all the modern comforts you could possibly need, including wireless internet access, multiple fireplaces, in-unit laundry machines and 4 flat screen cable TVs, located in the entertainment room, living room and 2 of the bedrooms. When you’re not out enjoying one of the local restaurants, prepare dinner in the home’s main fully-equipped, eat-in kitchen, which would impress anyone with features such as granite countertops, a pillowy window seat, and a gorgeous stone fireplace.

After cooking in the kitchen, or directly outside on the gas grill,  gather around either of the home’s 2 spacious dining tables to enjoy your culinary masterpiece. You may also choose to dine al fresco at any of the outdoor dining areas. Later, grab your favorite nightcap beverage and head to the own well-equipped game room, located next to the second kitchen and featuring all-time favorites like Ms. Pac Man and air hockey. When you’re finally ready to call it a night, retreat to one of 5 inviting bedrooms, where cloud-like beds and lovely decorations, create rejuvenating escapes.

Perhaps the best feature of the home is its unbeatable location, directly on the waters of Lake Chatuge, a massive lake that spans between Northwest Georgia to North Carolina. This delightful area is surrounded by the pristine natural beauty of the U.S. Forestry Preserves, making it remote yet still easily accessible to nearby attractions. From here, you’ll be close to the Appalachian Trail and also within easy reach of town, where you’ll find several movie theaters and supermarkets. The home is also conveniently located near I-75 - in addition to several other major highways - and just 2 hours north of Atlanta, which makes for an exciting day trip. Additionally, when you’re not utilizing either of the home’s 2 fully equipped kitchens, you’ll find plenty of restaurants in town that will accommodate any taste.

No matter what season you’re here, you’ll find a seemingly endless supply of outdoor adventures practically right at your fingertips. The golf enthusiast of your group will be delighted by the home's close proximity to several pristine golf courses. If you’re not much a of a golfer, other outdoor activities include horseback riding, visiting the countless nearby waterfalls, hiking, dirt biking on the nationally renowned Rabbit Trail, and fishing in the array of streams and lakes. Regardless of what you choose to do when you’re here, this exceptional Young Harris waterfront vacation rental home will make for a Georgia getaway you’ll never forget!

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

I have been to many vacation homes around the world, but this home was special. A lot of work went into making this a beautiful home. The views of the mountains and the lake makes you not want to leave. My kids and I love jumping off the dock and swimming in the private cove. Home is big enough to house a bunch of people and not get in each other ways. If you are looking for a slice of Heave, you just found it, i will miss this place, but hopefully will be back one day.

Overall an amazing and restful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The grounds are equally as beautiful as the house. Both are well maintained. The house is welcoming, cozy and provided accommodations that exceeded my family's expectations. They loved it so much that they requested that we use that location for future family events.

Lasting memories

  • 5 of 5

We had a total of 11 adults and young kids for this week long trip and this house proved to be more than we could have ever asked for. Each room was so well thought out with its decor. We practically had to have a sign in sheet for each family member when it was time to take a shower b/c the aroma steam shower was something straight out of a ritz Carlton.

Outside, the property offers an unmatched layout of beautiful gardens, plenty of grass space for games, a fire pit, and of course the docks.

If you're looking for a home that provides all of this, then look no further. Amazing trip that is worth a return. Thank you so much to the home owners for the effort they put in to make this home what it is and allowing our blended families to create memories for a lifetime.

Five Stars Aren't Enough - Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous home is so amazing it deserves 10 stars. Beautifully crafted and decorated, it had every amenity and then some. The kitchen was designed for cooking and gathering. The downstairs area is a delight for children and adults with an air hockey table, working jute box and classic arcade games. The grounds are stunning. Every photo and description in this listing are accurate. The property manager was helpful and delightful to work with. In the end, we had a hard time deciding what was more fun, exploring the area or the house itself! I would highly recommend this property and hope to stay here again. We felt privileged that the owners would open up their exceptional home to visitors.

Stunning Views of the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous Custom home on the water with spectacular views. It has it all! Very clean and well maintained. Warm and inviting decor, three large bedrooms upstairs, master bedroom on the main level and separate mother-in-law suite below. (my favorite spot)

Every morning we would wake up and sit on the porch to embrace the beauty while the kids ran down to the dock and enjoyed the lake with the boat and jet skis. At night we would play Ms. Pacman, air hockey, board games, roast marshmallows by the large fire pit, and enjoy a nice glass of wine.

I highly recommend this beautiful home. We have stayed there twice and will be returning often.

The owners were very accommodating and kind. They made our vacation stress free.
