Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had such a wonderful time at Bella Vista! We picked wild blackberries at the edge of the yard and thanks to the well-stocked kitchen were able to make a homemade cobbler for dessert. We fished in Lake Chatuge, played games and watched movies, even rented a boat to spend a day of fun on the water. This retreat is just that, a place to renew, reconnect and relax - no neighbors in site, except a rascally raccoon and some lovely hummingbirds. If you're looking for beautiful and peaceful - you'll find it at Bella Vista. Thanks for sharing your slice of heaven with us!

Lovely stay at Bella Vista!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this beautiful home was just perfect. We enjoyed the views, which differed each day. We enjoyed hiking, as well as visiting numerous interesting stops in the region. Above all, we enjoyed the peace of mind that was possible simply because we had rented from excellent owners. Monica and Ed provided everything we would need. Their care for their home transcended to us, the tenants and that meant lots. We highly recommend this home and look forward to returning in the near future.

Awesome way to spend Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5
What a relaxing way to spend Thanksgiving. The views will take your breath away. We even got snow on Thanksgiving morning and it was so nice to have a nice warm fireplace to help warm things up. Monica and Ed have thought of everything to help make our stay special. Attention to detail was great. Loved having everything in the kitchen to make cooking a breeze. We are already making plans to another visit soon. Monica and Ed, thanks again for everything. :-)

Beautiful Bella Vista!

  • 5 of 5
Our 3rd fall stay at Bella Vista was just as wonderful as our first and second! We stayed five days and traveled throughout the region during the day while coming "home" at night to cook in the well stocked kitchen and enjoy the fireplace. The view from this cottage is one of the best - mountains and the lake! Monica and Ed have thought of many details to make you feel that you are staying at a friend's home, not just a rental unit. This is the place to go to relax and rewind! Thanks again Monica and Ed!

Cozy and comfortable at it's height in the mountains

The "best" can only describe this home, Bella Vista. I/we found everything in pristine condition and the "extras" in the kitchen and bathroom were definitely a cut above the average. The owners pay very close attention to little details. Our brief stay will hopefully be extended next time...which will happen again, we agreed. The coupon book for nearby activities is such a nice little treat; we took in a winery and enjoyed seeing more of the mountain town charm.

Sister weekend

  • 4 of 5
enjoyed our weekend at this cabin. The view is breath taking. It turned freezing while we were there so we did not get to enjoy the porch like we had imagined but the view was still there. We wished we had booked for longer!

Location

From the Owner

On 3.5 private acres in the beautiful Smokey Mountains, Bella Vista is truly a slice of Heaven. With no neighbors around, and being an easy 2-hour drive from many surrounding cities, it's easy to get to and hard to leave. We chose this area because although there are plenty of other lakes in the southeast, Lake Chatuge is unique in that it's nestled among mountains so it has a whole different feel than a flatland lake.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Atlanta GA at 130 Miles Nearest Golf : The Ridges Resort at 3 Miles Nearest Motorway : GA 76 at 6 Miles Car: necessary

With a 128 miles of shoreline, Lake Chatuge is ideal for swimming, boating, camping and fishing. The cottage is located less than 5 minutes from two marinas on the shores of Lake Chatuge. Nearby Jackrabbit Campground offers 100 camp sites, public boat launch, picnic areas and a beach swimming area.

For the land lover, there are several local wineries, antique stores, horseback riding, plenty of hiking trails, restaurants, shops of all kinds, and two 18-hole golf courses very nearby. You are also 7 miles from the Georgia Mountain Fairgounds, 20 miles from Helen, and 60 minutes from Cherokee Casino.
