Lake Chatuge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Year around mountain views @ 2800 ft, quiet, private, Gated

Enjoy this beautiful cabin in a secluded mountain location. We made this a getaway lodge to enjoy the outdoors, family and to create great memories. We are located near many outdoor festivals, golf, hiking, and water sports.

Deer Valley is a Gated Communuty with paved roads, a pavillion with fireplace, and volleyball.

We have a King Bed Suite upstairs, a Queen Bed Suite downstairs and a full size trundle bed in the huge loft that sleeps 2 with private access to a full bathroom. A King bed air mattress can also be used in the loft area.

There is always something to do close by to keep everyone entertained. Please email us for a comprehensive list of activities.

We are pet-freindly and want you to enjoy your 4 legged canine members. A non refundable deposit of $50.00 per visit will be charged for cleaning the cabin.

We opted not to install a land line but we do have good cell access.

The cabin offers a family environment for all ages to enjoy. Relax in front of the wood burning stove and watch the mountains from the large picture windows or watch your favorite show on our flat panel TV with satelitte programs.

About Mark

My wife and I have been married 'several' decades and enjoy travel and experiencing new things. We started using VRBO to find those out of the way treasures for vacations.

Mark has recently gone back to riding motorcycles and found this wonderful area to explore and eventually purchased this property. Joan continues to enjoy decorating including this cabin. She enjoys her small group at church and has hopes to bring the 'girls' up for some area shopping and antiquing.

We have one married daughter that lives close by. Mark has been in the Logistics industry for 30 years and enjoys experiencing new challanges.

Mark purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Mark chose Lake Chatuge

THE VIEW.!! We have multiple long distance mountain views. The scenery changes by the minute. We have complete solitude with no neighbors close by. We have deer, wild turkeys and bob cats roaming the mountain. Its like camping but in a 4 star lodge.

What makes this cabin unique

Relaxing, star gazing, the fire pit with a glass of wine. No agenda, a complete stress reliever. We now know what 'mountain' time is plus the locals are real true generous people

Thanksgiving at the Behr Paw Lodge was fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend in the mountains. The home is very comfortable, quiet and with all amenities provided for a carefree vacation. The home has many large windows throughout that provide great views of the mountain range and valley below. We enjoyed gorgeous views of both sunrise and sunsets on the front porch. The location is close to Murphy and Brasstown where we shopped the local shops. We also were close enough to visit the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest for a day hike returning to a relaxing evening around the fire pit. The wood burning stove also kept us warm and cozy. We definitely recommend staying here and hope to return for a future visit.

Views as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the view and the home are very accurate. This is one of the nicer mountain properties that we have rented. Tastefully decorated, quality building materials inside and out, and great outdoor living space. Close to boating/hiking/clever mountain towns, this place has got it all. You can even get down to Athens in 2 hours should you want to go to the game on Saturday as we did. GO DAWGS!!! I highly recommend this property for all the aforementioned reasons, and the owner is very responsive and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thanks Richard, great to hear Dawg fans hale from Southern Alabama as well. We are alumni from the late 70's in the Dooley era. We are glad your stay was rewarding. We had just finished painting the outside and had to hustle to get you in. Look us up again.

Great Mountain Home near Lake Chatgue

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Lake Chatgue the last 3 summers. Each time we have rented a house from Home Away. This is our new favorite.. We loved being nestled up in the trees away from it all, but able to be in town and at the lake in 10-15 minutes. This house is very comfortable and furnished and decorated just like you would want a mountain cabin to be. The outdoor areas are the best part; screened in porch, back deck with swing and a fire pit. The owner was great. He always returned emails very quickly and made sure we had what we needed to have a great stay. We will definitely rent this home again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Christy for the kind review. We bought this cabin for the very reasons you mentioned. We love the quiet and solitude and just getting away. We love winter days up there using the wood stove and just relax. Look us up again. Mark and Joan

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 4 legged baby for a weekend and loved it. The cabin is beautifully appointed - with lots of room and the most wonderful views. We have rented through VRBO many times in this area and have to say that Behr Paw is one of the nicest places we have stayed - had we not just purchased a cabin in the area we would be back!!
