“Atmosphere and Comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Book a lakeside room and relax - this place feels like a mountain lodge, with a real stone fireplace, club chairs, and a patio with a view of the lake. Rooms are large, comfortable, and reasonably priced. "Breakfast" wasn't impressive, but we didn't really care.

Our lakeview rooms offer great views of Lake Chatuge. We do have a large stone fireplace in the lobby as well as comfortable couches to relax in. Our patio off of the backside of the lobby offers relaxing rocking chairs to take in the beautiful surroundings.

Our breakfast is included in the price of the room and is a continental breakfast during the week and offers 3 hot items in addition to the continental on the weekends. Please call me to discuss further what would make breakfast a better asset to the hotel.

Thank you,

My husband booked us here for my birthday weekend and it was great! The room and view was amazing. Definitely planning on going back soon. The staff was very friendly and great at doing their job. I want to go back and get the same room for the amazing view we had.

Delightful place to stay. Rooms are spacious, clean with a great view of the lake. Staff is friendly. Staying here for three nights and completely satisfied with choice. Great value for the price. It does no have lake frontage but the great view of lake and mountains well makes up for it. Good restaurants are quite convenient. Make sue that you try Michealee's Chocolate Caffe...

Room Tip: Look for even number rooms since they are lakeside... The higher floor the better...

Thank you for your kind review. I am glad that your 3 night stay was a delightful one. As you mentioned, our lakeview rooms do offer a fantastic view of Lake Chatuge. All of our 104 rooms offer their own private balcony to take in their surroundings. Michaelee's Chocolate Caffe is a fantastic restaurant that is great for either lunch or dinner. We also have a fantastic restaurant on our property called the Chophouse of Hiawassee. I look forward to meeting you during your next stay in Hiawassee.

Thank you,

Enjoyed staying at this motel, service was very efficient and friendly, front desk clerk was knowledgeable about the area. Room was average, bedding was very nice though. Our room had a view of the lake, that was beautiful and relaxing. They have a hot breakfast on weekends that was appropriate. There was a good feel to this place!

We stayed two nights at Lake Chatuge Lodge the week before Memorial Day. Because we beat the crowds we had choice of rooms on short notice. Our room on the Third floor lakeside was wonderful. Clean, comfortable and quiet with an awesome view of the lake. Loved the balcony..the cool air made for comfortable evening relaxing. Staff was very friendly and helpful, advising us of midweek specials without having to ask.

Note: this is not a "luxury" hotel, but a comfortable, clean relaxing place that doesn't try to be something it is not.

Definitely a place to put on a return list. We will be back.

Room Tip: Third floor lakeside gives you the best view.

Thank you for your terrific review. As you mentioned, our 3rd floor lakeview rooms do offer a great view of the lake. Our other two floors do as well offer fabulous views of Lake Chatuge. All 104 of our rooms offer a private balcony for our guests to enjoy the outdoors. I'm glad that our staff was able to advise you of midweek specials in the area. I hope that the next time you are in Hiawassee, you will choose to stay here again.

We had the most beautiful view from our room! We were on the lake side. The morning sunruse was spectacular. Our room was very clean. Loved the porch off the lobby area to sit with friends and share stories. Would stay there again!

We have stayed here several times. Beautiful view, clean rooms, and friendly staff. Call hotel directly to make reservation and ask for a lakeside room. Very close to the fairgrounds and concert hall (walking distance). Short drive to shops and restaurants. Close to Brasstown Bald, the highest point in Georgia. Great place to relax.

Thank you for your great review. As you mentioned, our property adjoins the Georgia Mountains Fairgrounds. You can walk there from our hotel. We are located on the city limits of Hiawassee so shopping and dining are just around the corner. I'm glad that you are a repeat guest. Please stop by the front desk the next time you are here so that I may thank you personally for your kind words.
