About Joe or Teresa Reece

We grew up in Clayton County Ga. and wanted to get out the fast pace of the city. We loved the mountains and consider it a blessing to move here. Hiawassee is known to be called The Jewel of the Mountains for its lake. I believe it to truly be a Jewel. Hiawassee is also less commercialized and a pleasure to kick back and enjoy the mountains and the lake !

Joe or Teresa Reece purchased this house in 1988

Why Joe or Teresa Reece chose Hiawassee

The Dogwood Lake house Retreat, sits down on the water, offers comfortable easy living, located on what the locals call sunny side. Has a lot of shade trees, plenty of elbow room on a gentle lot and with a short walk to the covered boat dock for fishing, swimming or boating. Enjoy the view from the property or with a close drive to town for your convenience to stores and activities.

What makes this house unique

The property is located beside a Bird Santuary . We have seen all kinds of birds. The gentle lot and the screen porch is so relaxing, listening to the birds and watch the sparkling water.The water stays at the dock year round and in the peak season is 10 to 12 feet deep at the end of the dock. Great place to play games in the yards and the water is so close with easy access for the elder. ATTRACTIONS: Brasstown Bald, (Ga,s highest Peak,) Ga. Mtn.

It was a beautiful place to enjoy family!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun at the lake house. Two of us love to cook for our family and had a brisket cook off. We rented paddle boards for the weekend and everyone enjoyed falling off or paddling around the beautiful cove. Wonderful weekend!

Terrific

  • 5 of 5

This house is located on a quiet finger of Lake Chatuge. Two decks and a large screened porch overlook the lake and the lovely back yard. When we weren't fishing, we were enjoying the view from the porch. The house was well equipped with all the necessities. Everything was clean. We caught several small fish from the newly finished dock. If we go to Chatuge again, we will want to stay in the same house.

Great location and large house

  • 4 of 5

Our party of four couples were in Hiawassee for a concert at the Anderson Music Hall. This house met our needs with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The owners are great to work with and I received a timely response to my questions. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is the access to the 4th bedroom. There is not a staircase inside to get to the downstairs where the 4th bedroom, bath and game tables are located. Other than that it was perfect. If you are planning a summer trip to Hiawassee this house is ideal.

Great property right on the water.

  • 5 of 5

This property in probably in the top 20% of vrbo places we stayed in over the years in terms of the quality of furnishings and maintenance. With that said, we brought three children and got charged $ off our deposit for water marks/ circles on marble coffee table, the type of furniture that probably should not be in a rental property. We really enjoyed the fire pit outside at night and the dock for fishing and boating - we rented a boat at a marina nearby. Overall a great experience and would recommend the property to others.
