About the property

3 BR, 2 Bath Cabin On The Edge Of River And Chattahoochee Natl Forest

A fully furnished 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in the Northeast Georgia Mountains on the edge of the rushing waters of Swallow's Creek that borders the Chattahoochee National Forest. With our large screened porch, deck over the river, fire pit, corn hole and a bottle of wine, you have all you need to escape for a family retreat or romantic getaway in the solitude of our mountain home. Be sure to bring your fishing pole for some trout fishing right off the deck or just float down the river in a tube. Explore our quaint town and beautiful Lake Chatuge nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains with all it has to offer with its fine golf courses, festivals, antique shopping, horse back riding, boating and fine dining. This resort town offers you the solitude and all the adventure that the big city leaves you wanting. Pack several bags, because you might just not want to leave.

About Steven & Emily Phillips

Native to this area, we have been married 30 years and now 3 kids and a Son-in-law later, we have decided to venture out with a home on the river. We are having a hard time staying away and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Steven & Emily Phillips purchased this house in 2010

Why Steven & Emily Phillips chose Hiawassee

This home is on a corner lot in a quiet community, with frontage on a beautiful river and all natural forest on the other side of the river. Sitting on the screened porch in the early morning watching the mist rise and the wildlife enjoying the water is absolutely spellbinding.

What makes this house unique

We have tried to equip our home with everything needed for your getaway. All you should have to bring is some food and your clothes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

White water rafting, along w/horseback riding all within a hop, skip & jump away. We also ventured down the creek to the right. We caught four trout. Find the deeper pockets and they are in there. Can't compete with the sound of the creek from the porch early morning. Fire pit is the hangout spot. We had a great getaway and already are talking about returning. Thanks

Very nice sized, well maintained, clean cabin. Close to activities such as tubing, ziplining and hiking. What made the cabin most special was the creek in the back. The kids loved playing in the creek and we enjoyed doing a bit of fishing as well. Caught a few rainbow trout. We have been going to the Mountains every year for 4 years now and I have to say that this was the most enjoyable stay we have had so far. You won't be sorry for booking this cabin.

Car: necessary

It takes less than two hours from Atlanta to reach our beautiful community in the northeast Georgia mountains. Hiawassee and Young Harris, Georgia have a lot to offer any time of the year!
