About Chuck Williams

We are Atlanta natives who have enjoyed having a second home in the mountains that is only a couple of hours from the city. We built this cottage as an investment property. The house is enjoyed by friends, family, groups from our church and many guests who return yearly.

Chuck Williams purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Chuck Williams chose North Georgia Mountains

This house is unique in that the lower level is a separate one-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen. Families enjoying having reunions but perhaps the grands would like a quiet space to 'escape.' The large living space inside adjoins the wraparound porch and makes for comfortable enjoyment of creature comforts indoors and out.

Location

Car: necessary

For outdoor enthusiasts there several hiking trails from easy to difficult many with beautiful waterfalls and vistas. Many people enjoy the drive (45-60 minutes) to Highlands, NC. If you drive to Fanklin NC and take Hwy 64 up to Highlands you will enjoy the beauty of several water falls from your car. For those who like casinos, Cherokee NC is an easy and beautiful drive. Harrah's has a casino there, but also, you will find many attractions that the whole family can enjoy. White water rafting is fun for many. Both class 2 and 3 rivers are close by. Several companies offer guided river excursions. Canopy tours for those who are brave of heart are close to Clayton. Beautiful Helen GA, a Bavarian style village, is a pleasant drive and the kids can enjoy tubing in the beautiful river that runs through the village. Tallulah Gorge is a must see and has a very interesting visitors center with a movie highlighting the development of our region. There is a series of 3 lakes that were built by Georgia Power in the early 1900's to produce hydo-electricity. These lakes, Seed, Burton and Rabun offer opportunities to enjoy the public beaches or maybe rent a pontoon or other water craft and enjoy the splendor of the water while looking at the mountains surrounding the lakes. Dining in the area is varried and you can find places to eat to fit your budget--anything from Chik-fil-a to Fortify or the Lake Rabun Hotel.

Paradise in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We spend two months here and it was heavenly! We wanted to see if we liked it in the winter since we had already been to Clayton in the summer.

The owner Chuck is a wonderful, helpful person. The house was fabulous and well kept. We loved the views and walking in the woods. We liked the area so well we bought a house here!

We would definitely recommend this property.

We loved the variety of places to eat in the area. The hiking is wonderful.

Owner's Response: It has been a pleasure having you in our guest house for the winter. We understand why you would want to move here full time! Thanks for being good sports with the water leak upon your arrival and the other normal household activities. Looking forward to seeing you around town--NEIGHBORS!

Spacious, private, easy access everything I look for in a mtn rental

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house , easy access, roomy and good roads on the edge of town. Only thing I was disappointed in was master being top floor instead of ground level. I know we always wish we had done something differently when beginning. The tv downstairs in the apartment was off satellite. We called Donna, the house keeper, and she came right over. It took another day and 2 more trips but she didn't stop until she had it all reset. It would be nice to have at least 1 tv in a bedroom. The backporch being screened and spacious was amazing for sitting out in nature. We will certainly stay again and can recommend this house. Donna is a keeper. She deserves a bonus for going above board to be of assistance. We can highly recommend this stay. Very spacious and so near many points of interest. Take the mtn road to Highlands, N C. You will be amazed by the many roadside water falls without hiking

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I am fortunate to have Donna on the team as she continually makes sure that guests have a pleasant experience. At some point in the future I may add another television or two but as you know the more devices and the more remotes the more potential there is for confusion. You are right about taking the Highway 64 route up to Highlands NC. The road runs along the river and gives several beautiful views of waterfalls. Hope to have you visit again!

Beautiful & Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a true God-send and haven during Hurricane Irma. We were FL refugees fleeing the state with no where to go. After spending 1 night in a hotel room with 5 adults and a roll away bed, we set out looking for a rental home -usually our first choice.

This was like a dream come true. 4 bedroom, 3 levels, each bedroom with its own bathroom. Great views and tranquility on the wrap around porch. Home is kept immaculate. And is very private. Gated and safe. Owner was a blessing to work with. We are very thankful to have found this place. Love to go back.

Owner's Response: I am glad you found a respite at the cottage. Who knew that Irma was going to impact Rabun County so heavily?! Thank you for understanding about the loss of power in the area. Hopefully things are getting back to some semblance of normalcy for you back in Florida.

Over the top!

  • 5 of 5

It was a last minute Anniversary trip & we were more than pleased with communications, stay, accommodations, beauty of the home as well as the convenience of the setting. We love this area and have visited Rabun County for more than 45 plus years. The house was well laid out for comfort, look forward to another stay here. I don't have anything negative to write about this stay. Thank you Chuck!
