The name 'Lakeview Hideaway' perfectly describes this 2-bed, 2-bath Ellijay home! Nestled on the hillside of Carters Lake, Georgia's deepest lake, this vacation rental provides unparalleled views from both the wraparound deck and cozy cabin-like interior, where you'll find a laid-back living room and a kitchen that encourages home-cooking. When you're ready for adventure, head to the water for boating and fishing, or stay ashore for hiking followed by a wine tasting at Engelheim Vineyards!

  • Weekend getaway!


    Good option for a weekend getaway from Atlanta. Overall we enjoyed our stay at this cabin! Pros: Location, lake view, cleanliness, and mostly good quality kitchenware, cozy atmosphere. Cons: A little far away from most North GA attractions (Helen, Falls, and some trails), master bathroom fan makes noise, some pots and pans are scratched.

    Me and my mon friends needed a weekend away. This place was EVERYTHING we could have dreamed of. Tons of windows and great light! All of the lights were on a dimmer and weren’t that horrible blue light like in a public restroom-lol. The beds and linens were super cozy. The owners were incredible and super responsive to all our questions. Run don’t walk- book your stay at this place ASAP!

  • Wonderful Accommodations


    We had a lovely week at this well equipped and comfortable home away from home. We received a quick response to a question about checking in and everything was lovely for our time there. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were comfortable. There are plenty of seating areas with comfortable furniture both inside and out. The view from the back porch is stunning and the gas fire pit made it even more special to sit outside at night. This property is in a lovely quiet neighborhood which overlooks a pristine lake front so you feel in the midst of nature. I highly recommend this spot!

    The lake house is charming cottage style. It has a well-furnished kitchen and many amenities for your use. We were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay. The house has a keyless entry system which makes for easy access. The Host was very gracious in working with our arrival time. They have given a lot of thought into making their home an enjoyable experience. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to a return visit. is over looking Carter lake ..
