Plan the group vacation you've been waiting for at this five-bedroom Ellijay lodge, a spacious North Georgia retreat with a private hot tub, a pool table, two large decks, and gorgeous vistas of Carters Lake and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
This cozy property is part of the Talking Rock Creek Resort, which sits just three miles from the marina at Carters Lake. You'll also be 19 miles southwest of Ellijay and 20 miles northwest of Jasper, offering easy access to shopping, dining, and outdoor recreation.
Surround yourself with exposed wood in the great room, which features lofty beamed ceilings, several plush sofas, and a wall of windows that overlook the Carters Lake Regulation Reservoir. Build a fire on crisp autumn evenings, use the WiFi to post a few photos, and watch a DVD on the first of five satellite TVs.
Prepare dinner as a family in the open kitchen, where you'll find granite countertops, modern appliances, and three bar stools for your vegetable-chopping sous chefs. Sit down for homemade meals at the six-person dining table or the adjacent four-person bistro table.
Spend your days lounging on the wrap-around deck, cooking on the gas grill, and gathering at the patio table for al fresco lunches. The Talking Rock Creek Resort also offers two seasonal swimming pools that are open from Memorial Day until Labor Day, a fitness center, and a fishing pond for your enjoyment.
And in the evenings, you can take a soothing soak in the private outdoor hot tub, gather for ghost stories around the firepit, or head downstairs to the family room for a game of nine ball on the eight-foot slate pool table.
With five bedrooms and three full bathrooms, Cherokee Overlook can accommodate as many as 16 guests. On the main floor, you'll find a master suite with a queen bed, a TV, and a bathroom with a jetted tub and walk-in shower, as well as a sleeper sofa in the great room.
The upper level has one king bedroom, one queen bedroom, and a bathroom with a tub/shower combination. On the lower level, you'll find one bedroom with two twin beds, and one bedroom with a double bed. A set of twin bunk beds and a futon are in the family room, and there's also a bathroom with a tub/shower combination on this floor.
Additional amenities include parking for a boat trailer and a private washer/dryer to keep your outdoor clothes clean and fresh.
Thanks to its wonderful location within sight of Carters Lake, this North Georgia retreat is ideal for boating enthusiasts, anglers, and all lovers of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Rent pontoon boats at the Carters Lake marina or spend the day fishing and hiking along the 62-mile shoreline.
You'll also be just 23 miles south of Fort Mountain State Park, which is known for its gorgeous trails and an ancient rock wall believed to have been built by early American Indians, and 38 miles from Amicalola Falls State Park, where you can catch a glimpse of the tallest cascading waterfall in the Southeast United States.
