Guestbook comments from the owner

As my first time on Lake Chatuge, I had so much fun with my friends and Mom. The house and lake are beautiful and we were very comfortable here. Thanks so much for the boat ride, it was a blast!! We made some great memories here, and we loved everything about this cabin on Lake Chatuge! It was a great way to celebrate my birthday. Much love,

Most Relaxing Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband planned to walk the Appalachian Trail with a friend and found this property online. It is so true as one reviewer commented "the pictures do not do this property justice"! It has such a warm, cozy lodge feel, uniquely decorated, the view is absolutely gorgeous, and the amenities are wonderful! It was nice to have chairs on the dock to enjoy the lake views and this location is so quiet and peaceful! Would highly recommend kayaking, and renting a boat for the day (Boundary Waters Marina is excellent!) to explore and enjoy the beauty of the lake! We also got to meet the owners, Cheryl and Bob, who were such a great wealth of information on where to shop for groceries, rent boats, dine... We enjoyed meeting them and seeing them occasionally during our stay. It was the perfect location for some of our family members in the Atlanta area as it was only an hour and a half drive for them. We had 8 people sleeping very comfortably in this cabin with more than enough room for all! We most definitely plan to be back again! Thanks Cheryl and Bob!

Rest, Rejuvinate, Renew

  • 5 of 5

We rented Mountain Lake Lodge for Labor Day Weekend. The pictures do not do this property justice...Beautiful! We enjoyed our first "mini" vacation with our children who still reside at home and our newly married daughter and son-in-love. There were 6 of us and room to spare. We brought our own boat and docked at the property. The water was still warm and so clean and clear. We have stayed with many VRBO hosts and found this property to be the perfect blend of Mountain cabin and lake retreat. Our days were full with swimming, fishing, and boating. Our nights were complete with campfires/S'mores, Playing Rook and Taboo with the kids and watching the Georgia Dawgs play. We would recommend the Blue Otter (reservations needed for holiday weekend) and the Deer Lodge for places to eat in the area. Our hosts were very helpful and attentive. Thank you for sharing your blessings with us!

Perfect lakefront retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented this spacious, comfortable lake home during the last week of summer break and it was the perfect retreat for our family. Our teenage boys enjoyed fishing, swimming and kayaking from the dock and the deep water access was a real bonus. We also rented a boat for the day from the Boundary Marina which was only minutes away from the house and provided excellent service. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Lake Chatuge. Bob and Cheryl were a pleasure to deal with and we would love to rent this beautiful home again.

Owner's Response: We hope you made some lasting family memories at Mountain Lake Lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed having you and look forward to your return. Thank you for your nice words. Remember the fall colors are spectacular.

Highly satisfied!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful mountain chalet was everything we expected and more, nestled in a quiet cove on Lake Chatuge. It is very close to town, and Cheryl and Bob were gracious hosts, making sure we had everything we needed and answering questions about the area. Our teenage sons really enjoyed fishing, kayaking and swimming off the dock. We highly recommend Mountain Lake Lodge!

Wedding Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were having a wedding in the area and were looking for a warm, cozy log cabin for our stay. Mountain Lake Lodge was perfect. We had several pre-wedding get-togethers and had everything we needed right there. The upstairs loft was great for just getting away from it all. We felt like we had the whole area to ourselves. It was chilly but we stayed warm with the fireplace going. Everything in the chalet was great. This summer we are coming back so we can really enjoy the lake and outdoor activities.
