This is a great place to stay if you're attending a concert next door at the Georgia Mountains Fairground. We were going to walk the trail over to the venue but were warned that it is downhill all the way but coming back it is all uphill. We appreciated that bit of advice and chose to drive. Very convenient. The... More

We went in January just for an escape to the mountains from the busy life of Christmas in Atlanta. Ate at the Chop House next door which is always a treat. The room was clean, view of the lake was good and the staff was friendly. Warm cookies upon arrival was a nice touch and the breakfast was pretty standard... More

I'm happy to see that we were your escape after your busy Christmas. We are less than 2 hours from Atlanta. The Chophouse of Hiawassee is a great restaurant for either lunch or dinner and they are within walking distance. Some of our rooms offer unobstructed views of beautiful Lake Chatuge. We just recently installed gas logs in our large... More

This hotel has a rustic feel, but the comforts of a larger chain hotel. Staff was very friendly! Good hot breakfast. The best thing was waking up to an absolutely beautiful view of the lake. Both my husband and I thought this was one of the best views ever!

The Lake Chatuga Lodge provides a good night's sleep in a clean and comfortable room with free breakfast buffet. Carolyn and I chose over the more expensive hotels and resorts in the area because we were not looking for much more, such as Spa, pool, or fitness area.
