Why Chris Swett chose Nantahala Bay
The North Georgia Mountains host some of the most beautiful, yet affordable, places to live in the United States. Bel Aire Overlook takes advantage of a sunny southern exposure and 400 foot elevation (above the valley) to host a spectacular view of the lake and mountains, with the highest point in Georgia, Brasstown Bald, center stage. The wonderful view is combined with the convenience of being within the Hiawassee city limits without feeling like you're in town.
What makes this House unique
Hiawassee hosts Georgia Mountain Fair and Anderson Music Hall, which provide year-round entertainment with frequent concerts, special events and the annual North Georgia Fair and Fall Festivals. Lake Chatuge offers boating, fishing, water skiing, swimming and other recreation activities. The location is also convenient to tourist destinations such as Helen, Blue Ridge, and Harrahs Cherokee Valley River Casino in Murphy, NC. It is a convenient drive from the Atlanta Metro area and a great summer escape from the heat of south and central Florida.

We loved this place!!!
Great place! We enjoyed our stay!!!
What a beautiful spot!
The views are spectacular. The house is very well kept and comfortable. The attention from the owner was fabulous!
Once again, owner-managed cabin was perfection. You can tell when the owners love their cabins - they want their renters to love it, too. So many personal touches and generous accouterments. It was splendid.
A great time !
Mountain View’s from an In Town Location
Comfortable place with a world class view of mountains and a lake. Excellent location very close to shopping and dining options. Great entertainment features for kids
Will stay here again!
Excellent property for a family with kids. We stayed for a weekend with my wife’s parents, my wife and me, and our four kids. There was plenty of room, and between the pool table and the entertainment setup downstairs, our kids were entertained throughout the weekend. Communication from the management was fantastic. The house is located very close to several restaurants, gas stations, a grocery store, and the fairgrounds, which is where the event we were attending was held. Last but not least, the view from the balcony is one of the best views I have ever seen from a personal residence. I would absolutely recommend this property to a family or group of any age.
