About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to our chalet tucked in a green forest and set beside a shimmering lake at the foothills of Southern Appalachians. The development, called Pine Mountain Club Chalets Family Resort and Conference Center, consists of over 100 chalets surrounding a 12-acre lake built with its own Bavarian design, keeping the overall plan as that of an Alpine Village. Enjoy Lake Innsbrook, a private lake with docks, boats, and canoes moored around the lake for the guest's convenience. Fishing in the lake is great.

Swim in the community pool, play tennis, Ping-Pong, pool, basketball, shuffleboard, volleyball, horseshoes, or try the nine-hole, miniature golf course.

View the natural beauty of nearby Callaway Gardens, 14,000 acres of wonder, the John A. Sibley Horticultural Center, Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center, and more. If you are a golfer, there are 63 holes of the best golf you could ever want. The Christmas lights are absolutely fabulous. In nearby Warm Springs, visit the Little White House where Franklin D. Roosevelt built his retreat during his presidency. There is plenty to do in the area, or just relax with a book or listen to the ducks clatter on the lake.

Our chalet is one of the most popular chalets in the development with up-to-date furnishings, a screened porch overlooking the lake, and a kitchen with plenty of utensils to make a gourmet meal.

About Jerry Thompson

The chalet is owned by Chalet 78, LLC that was formed in 2007 by Jerry and Karen Thompson. Jerry originally purchased it while living in the Atlanta area where he was CEO of a successful Atlanta based bank. In 1995, Jerry and Karen moved to St George Island, FL where Jerry became successful in real estate selling resort properties. Twenty years later, Jerry and Karen purchased a home near Pine Mountain to be closer to the children and grandchildren and are now full time Georgia residents again.

Jerry Thompson purchased this chalet in 1986

Why Jerry Thompson chose South Rivers Area

We were attracted to Chalet 78 because of the beautiful lake views and quite setting. We like it because it is not real close to the community pool and recreational area that has more noise and activities. However, it is just a brief walk to enjoy those activities when we desire.

What makes this chalet unique

One of the unique benefits is the close proximity to Callaway Gardens and to the quaint downtown area of Pine Mountain. We visit Callaway Gardens frequently to play golf, fish or take advantage of the many activities there.

Loved it.

We really enjoyed the screened in back porch. Was also confident have the Restruant within walking distance. Would definitely rent again if we went back to that area.

The chalet is a dream!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at Chalet #78! It is perfect for us three Senior Citizen ladies who went to high school together (yep, we are almost 80 years young and still "reunion" at least once a year)! The handicap facilities within the house as well as ramp entrance were very helpful to us. The house is beautifully appointed and spacious, with all the comforts of home. We especially enjoyed the large screened porch with gorgeous view of the lake, gazebos and ducks and geese! The whole house was neat, clean and very comfortable. We will definitely go back....already missing the Chalet!

cozy comfortable chalet

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely chalet - you feel at home when you open the door. Stone fireplace and very comfortable furniture AND a screened in porch overlooking the lake - who could ask for more? There are TVs everywhere if you get tired of looking at the view - but doubt you will. Bedrooms a nice size and beds comfortable. Nicely appointed kitchen with a gas stove. Walking is easy on the road around the lake and there are trails as well. Crickets Restaurant is within walking distance on the main road and the food is really good. Callaway Gardens is just "down the road a piece" and other things to do are too. Very convenient and so nice we want to come back next year!

Perfect vacation home to visit Callaway Gardens. Home was exactly as portrayed. Wonderful location and so clean. Huge screened in porch we used nonstop and ducks actually walk right up to the door for the kids to feed! My grandkids didn't want to leave. We will be back!!

Quiet, Comfortable and So Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this chalet for a much needed vacation and a chance to visit with friends and family who live nearby. The chalet was plenty big enough to host a BBQ dinner and gave the little ones (2 legged and 4) plenty of space to run around and explore. Everyone agreed the screened porch over looking the lake was the absolute highlight of the chalet.

Wi-fi was problematic, rarely were we able to get a reliable connection for any length of time. My teenage niece was devastated... for the adults it was more of an inconvenience. Much of the lovely decor was not toddler friendly, we had to un-decorate and hide pretty things and books in every room ensure nothing was broken, torn or destroyed! (Fortunately there was plenty of closet space available!)

Other than that, the Chalet met our expectations and exceeded them. The home seemed to be well maintained, extremely clean and so comfortable. We had a really great time!

Great house, clean, updated, and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great, VERY clean, and furnishings are wonderful. The lake is beautiful. The area has enough for our kids to do while we could relax and enjoy the time away. I was very impressed with how fast the owners replied to my questions all along the way, usually within an hour, even at night when I didn't expect a reply until the next morning. If we come back to Pine Mountain, I'd stay here again for sure. Thank you for making our stay so nice!
