Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

A lovely hideaway nestled in the treetops of the quiet Big Hollow cove on grand lake of the Cherokees with a panoramic view of the water.

The Anniversary Cottage sits on a hillside 400 feet from water access. The Anniversary Cottage is a 1 bedroom with a sleeping loft that will accommodate up to 4 people, but is perfect for a couple’s get-a-way.

The Anniversary Cottage is a quiet, cozy, luxurious get-a-way to relax in with all the comforts of home. Will sleep 4.

Whether you are an early-bird enjoying the early morning light over the water & the music of the morning birds or a night-owl taking pleasure in the sounds of the night & the moon reflecting on the lake, you will appreciate lounging on the covered deck soaking in all the sights, sounds and smells of nature.

The bath would compete with any 5 star hotel, with thick thirsty towels. It has a jetted tub for two. If that isn't to your liking, the shower will accommodate two also.

Lounge on the 16 x 36 swim platform watching the ducks play in front of you and seagulls dive or maybe catch a glimpse of the resident bald eagle.

Our cove is a favorite spot for fisherman.

We have a 16 x 36 swim platform as well as a dock available for tying up your boat that. You may fish off the dock or if you enjoy taking a dip, you can take a dive off the dock and float around for a leisurely afternoon in the water.

The Anniversary Cottage is located in Big Hollow Cove about 1/4 mile off main lake. Big Hollow is a no wake cove on the Southeast side of the lake. Saddle Island is at the entrance to Big Hollow Cove. Sweet Water Hollow & Serenity Point are to the northeast of Big Hollow. Johnson Hollow & Goat Island are to the west of Big Hollow. Drowning Creek is further west & the closest major cove.

Cottage at the end of a winding lane

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Big Hollow. Bob and Linda were perfect hosts! The cabin is not only beautiful inside and out, it's stocked with everything you need for a great get away. We brought a few bags of groceries and just stayed put for the week. Canoeing, bicycling down the lane, sitting on the beautiful balcony, walking down to the boat docks-- every single thing about this time was enchanting. The birds were singing, frogs were croaking , leaves were falling- it was just picture perfect. The interior of the cottage is absolutely beautiful for a couple or a small family. I look forward to not only coming back, but I'm sending my married kids to this place for a true get away from it all. A perfect place to refresh, reconnect and relax!

beautiful cottage, limited parking

  • 3 of 5

Remote location, beautiful setting, cottage sits above two other residences. The Cottages area is secluded and remote -- however there are two other residences right there within a few feet, so you're not really "secluded". A lot has changed since one of these photos was taken... there is a home between the Cottage and the lake, so the view is not as direct as one of these photos represents (in my opinion). There is a steep grade down to the water, and you have to wind your way around the bottom residences. The walk back up is a booger! LOL

Our stay was less than perfect only because we needed better parking and boat ramp access. Parking a boat is only possible on a roadside, and that was not a comfortable situation for us. The nearby boat ramp is partially closed, and is rarely used, making it a struggle to launch. (cross timbers and washed up materials make access difficult) The nearest ramp to the house is about a 15 minute drive. The boat docking on the water is very nice, but is not covered. Again, not a big deal, but should be noted if you want covered docking.

Ask all the questions you can, and know what you're getting into before you get there -- the refund policy is absolute and they will not waver from it. I was a bit disappointed in that. The owners believe their accessibility for boat parking and docking is adequate. I think many would disagree as we did. This will not get you any form or any small percentage of a refund.

Favorite Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 5th or 6th time we've stayed at the Cottages at Big Hollow and it was another great stay. We always feel "treated" when we stay here. Occasionally, we've stayed at other Grand Lake rentals (when there is no vacancy for our desired dates at the Cottages at Big Hollow), and we are always anxious to get back to our favorite rental on Grand Lake. In our opinion, nothing else comes close at this price point. The cottage location in a quiet cove with direct water access for boating or fishing from the dock, the cottage décor and the many amenities (including a whirlpool tub, plush robes, great Wi-Fi), and the nicest owners who are on-site and willing to assist in any way, make it the perfect choice. The "pluses" to renting this cottage are numerous. The only "cons" are: (1) the hill is steep (but paved) to the dock/water so if you have serious health problems, this might not be a good choice. I've had knee replacement surgery and have no problem walking up and down the drive, but I would recommend good gripping shoes (not a slick bottom sandal). (2) if you sleep in the loft and are not an early riser, be sure to bring an eye mask because the loft is open to the living/kitchen area below. LOVELY COTTAGE, LOVELY LOCATION AND LOVELY OWNERS! Highly recommend for those desiring a more upscale lake experience. Thank-you Bob and Linda for another wonderful stay!
