Overview

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, it's the perfect location for a group in town to gamble - the casino hotel is booked for two years!

THE PROPERTY

With 7 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.

THE LOCATION

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 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!

Beautiful Lake Setting But.....

  • 3 of 5

If you have a big group and need a large home on the lake, this is a nice place! I grew up on Lake Chatuge and come back every summer to visit family. We have rented many homes on the lake and although this home is very nice it is over-priced in its current condition.

POSITIVES: The property manager, Priscilla, is an absolute gem. Priscilla did everything she could to assist us. She should definitely get a raise!

Highlights of the home are the large kitchen and dining area, upper deck with partial overhang and lower level patio area, fire pit near the water, covered gazebo & fireplace. The house is situated in a quiet location with only a few houses nearby; and of course, beautiful Lake Chatuge about 100 yards from the house.

NEGATIVES: This home needs a LOT of work; door handles that fall off, outdoor lighting that does not work, broken cupboard doors, and a bathroom door that does not close.

Most importantly, we rented this home to be on the water. There are two docks on the property. The “renter’s” dock is dilapidated, splintered and broken with no ladder to enter/exit the water. This dock was unsafe and a hazard. The “owner’s" dock houses a boat that has not been used in quite awhile. There was broken glass on this dock and the ladder was held in place with two small screws. This situation was very disappointing to our group as we wanted to be in the water and spend time down at the lake. Neither dock was optimal for this purpose.

There are two BBQ grills, one on the upper deck and another at the gazebo. Both should be taken to the dump immediately! They are badly rusted and the internal gas pipes were broken in half!

The owners keep a lot of personal items scattered throughout the house on counters, in drawers, closets, garage, etc. There is so much stuff that it is an issue when trying to locate things. The kitchen looks like most of the glassware, silverware, cooking utensils, and dishes are a conglomeration from garage sales. The utensils and small appliances are crammed into drawers & cupboards and many items need to be replaced i.e. knives for cutting, spatulas, etc. All the cupboards need a good cleaning as there are crumbs, spilled food and coffee grinds in many of them.

This is a beautiful property on the water. Our group had a wonderful time. The setting is gorgeous, the house is large but not worth the rental price. We have stayed in other properties on Lake Chatuge that are in a much better condition.

Large, beautiful lake house allows plenty of space for family gathering with lake access!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 (+ a baby) had an awesome time in this large, beautiful house! Plenty of room to spread out. The house was clean. The large kitchen fit our needs for cooking meals and hanging out. Bedrooms were comfortable. The basement game room was a hit! The beautiful lawn provided space for outdoor games. Lake access was convenient for swimming and canoeing from the dock. The lovely sunsets in the evening were a bonus! Shopping is close by in Hiawasee. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend it for other families of similar size!

Gorgeous house, very roomy, breathtaking property with super convenient lake access and dock!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning property and very convenient access to lake. We rented a boat, a couple of jet skis, and paddle boards and loved the convenience of being able to access those steps away from the house. Gorgeous views!!! Loved the fire pit! Huge kitchen, lots of bedrooms and very fun basement toys (air hockey, Pac Man, etc..) in basement. Only wishes were a big pot in kitchen for boiling for cooking, instructions to get the grill working, chairs around fire pit (only 1 was functional, other chair broken and unusable), lots of light bulbs in foyer and living room out, toilet paper holder falling out of wall in entryway. Microwave and more traditional oven in basement so maybe just a notation about that.

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.
