About Cliff Hood

We live nearby in Helen, Georgia and own this property as well as another adjacent house that we rent through VRBO.

Cliff Hood purchased this house in 2008

Why Cliff Hood chose Hayesville

We really enjoy mountain lakes, particularly Lake Chatuge and the North Carolina side of the lake. There is a large amount of TVA and National Forest with great mountain views. There are many very good restaurants and activities in the area and some are available via the lake. This property sits on 2 & 1/2 acres with a large lawn area.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the Elf Community and having lake access through the pontoon boat, is great for cruising around beautiful Lake Chatuge.

Elf School @ LK Chatuge-Optional Use of PONTOON BOAT- RATES LOWERED FOR AUGUST!!
average rating of 4.95 based on 20 reviews

The Elf School was a great place to stay we enjoyed everything about it, our grandchildren had a wonderful time running through the house and grounds while the adults watched from the grand porch. Swimming all day off the Pontoon boat and Sunset cruises in the evening was the highlight of each day. Billiards at night in the family room added to more fun memories to last a life time. I highly recommend the Elf School it was truly a great vacation.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend getaway at Elf School House! The teenagers loved the entertainment room and my wife and I enjoyed the family room and front porch. The lake and pontoon boat was very enjoyable and relaxing. Lake Chatuga was pretty temperature and with moderate boat traffic. The sleeping accommodations worked well for all of us. The house was very clean and very functional for our visit.

Happy with the Elf School

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very nice. The house was very nicely decorated and roomy. We had the pontoon all week and we definitely used it. Had a blast. The only inconvenience was a faulty refrigerator and an extremely slow internet (5 Mbps). Both were resolved on our last day (refrigerator fixed and internet service bumped up to 50). This would not keep us from returning. Again, access to the pontoon every day was the crowning point.

We had a wonderful time in this interesting house.

  • 5 of 5

Had plenty of room and liked that each bedroom had its own bathroom and there was a 4th bathroom also. The pontoon boat was a great option and really made the trip. It was great to be able to boat around on beautiful Lake Chatuge.

Charming Historic Property

Very spacious. Great to have a bathroom with every bedroom. Men enjoyed the pool table and we all enjoyed the porch! Local family told us cool stories about history of the building.

Was nice

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the old elf school house! I just which they had not built the houses on front so you could not have a view of the mountains and lake! Loved the use of the boat!

Owner's Response: Thank you and we are so happy that you enjoyed the house, lake and pontoon boat. Having a pontoon available during your stay is a great addition to the Lake experience. Yes, we have lost part of our lake and mountain view due to "progress" but that can happen when you are in such a great location and Community! Thanks again and please join our many other guests and friends that return frequently.
