Welcome to the Happy Retreat on beautiful Lake Nottely in the mountains of North Georgia. Escape the city and come stay at Happy Retreat, about 2 hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga, and Knoxville. Our home was recently renovated and features 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, a gourmet kitchen, open living/dining space, incredible screen porch and multiple decks with hot tub to relax in. Play on our 4 kayaks or bring your own boat, jet ski and water toys or rent from multiple marinas on the lake and use our private dock. The house is great for family gatherings or cozy for two!

The main level has a large, gourmet kitchen that is fully stocked with all your cooking needs, open family room and dining area. This level has a bedroom (king) with private bath and a second bedroom (king) off the kitchen area with full bath. All main level areas have access to the 60-foot screen porch from the open living space or either bedroom! Enjoy a wall of glass windows/doors give sweeping views of the lake from all living spaces. The screened porch is a favorite location at Happy Retreat! Views are simply amazing from here. We have a large deck off the screen porch for grilling, dining, soaking in the hot tub and relaxing overlooking the lake. Towards the waters edge we have a large deck and covered pavilion with a fan and stone fireplace, with firewood provided. Enjoy sunbathing, time around the fireplace roasting s’mores and dining by the lake.

The main living space has a gas log fireplace and ceiling fans in all rooms and screen porch to help make you more comfortable. There is a 50-inch Smart TV in the living space and Smart TV’s in all bedrooms, very fast Fiber Internet and central heating and air conditioning. The basement level has a game room and full bathroom. A separate bedroom is set up for a kids or family sleeping area containing a queen, a separate twin, a full/twin bunk and a convertible sofa. An additional room contains a queen and twin bunk beds. The basement holds plenty of entertainment with an air hockey table, brand new arcade game, 2 televisions, dvd/vcr, library and beverage refrigerator. Please see our Welcome Guide for a list of the MANY things to do in the area!

We do have 4 cameras on the exterior of the home, doorbell, two viewing the trash cans, to ensure trash removal, and of the dock, to monitor water level since we are on a reservoir lake.
