Our 3rd fall stay at Bella Vista Cottage

"Our 3rd fall stay at Bella Vista Cottage was just as wonderful as our first and second! We stayed five days and traveled throughout the region during the day while coming "home" at night to cook in the well stocked kitchen and enjoy the fireplace. The view from this cottage is one of the best - mountains and the lake! Monica and Ed have thought of many details to make you feel that you are staying at a friend's home, not just a rental unit. This is the place to go to relax and unwind!" - Pam and Clay W., Metairie Louisiana

Unbelievable View

"My siblings and I had a wonderful rental experience at Bella Vista over Father's Day weekend. Monica has been such a delight to work with. She responds quick to emails and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect! The house was very clean and included more amenities than most rentals do. There was plenty of space for my brother, sister and I. And the view is just unbelievable! I loved waking up to it 🙂 Our parents recently moved to Hiawassee, GA and I'm so glad I have a new home away from home at Bella Vista! It's the perfect getaway for families and friends of all ages. Can't wait to visit soon!" - Katie Z.

If you are looking for peace, rest, and recharge then this is the place for you!

"If you are looking for peace, rest, and recharge then this is the place for you! Bella Vista was a perfect long weekend get away for two couples. The layout of the villa provides plenty of common space in well-stocked kitchen, dining area, family spot, and porch. The bedrooms and baths on separate floors provided solace and privacy when desired. We spent several days enjoying the perfect weather, sights around the lake, mountains roads, local vineyards, and homey restaurants. We also enjoyed a stay-and-play night in the villa with the grill and games. Monica touched base and made sure all our needs were met! Our trip was "just what the doctor ordered!" Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home!" - Karen and Don

By far one of the nicest, cleanest, well stocked cabins

"We have rented many cabins through the years. Belle Vista was by far one of the nicest, cleanest, well stocked cabins we have stayed in. It is in a very private setting. We spent everyday getting out and about in the surrounding towns, and at the cabin sitting on the porches enjoying the views and the peace and quiet. We even had the oppurtunity to see 13 deer cutting through the property. We live in the country and have many deer on our property but we have never seen 13 at one time following each other 🙂 If you are looking for a quiet get away with beautiful surroundings this is the cabin. Monica was very easy to work with making reservations and even sent a text after we had arrived to make sure we arrived safetly and everything was ok with the cabin 🙂 We will sure to be back in the very near future. We have found a new favorite spot in the mountains." - Shawn V.

What a relaxing way to spend Thanksgiving.

"What a relaxing way to spend Thanksgiving. The views will take your breath away. We even got snow on Thanksgiving morning and it was so nice to have a nice warm fireplace to help warm things up. Monica and Ed have thought of everything to help make our stay special. Attention to detail was great. Loved having everything in the kitchen to make cooking a breeze. We are already making plans to another visit soon. Monica and Ed, thanks again for everything. :-)" - Terry

The owners pay very close attention to little details.

"The best can only describe this home, Bella Vista. I/we found everything in pristine condition and the "extras" in the kitchen and bathroom were definitely a cut above the average. The owners pay very close attention to little details. Our brief stay will hopefully be extended next time...which will happen again, we agreed. The coupon book for nearby activities is such a nice little treat; we took in a winery and enjoyed seeing more of the mountain town charm." - Pam

A place to just relax and enjoy life

"We have been coming to this area for the past 9 years but Bella Vista is the most beautiful to visit. I would recommend it to any one who loves a place to just relax and enjoy life. We spent a month this year and have already made our plans for another month next year!" - Obie

I can't wait to return

"What a wonderful house, I can't wait to return! The views are simply beautiful, huge windows overlooking the lake and the mountains. Tastefully decorated, all the modern conveniences of home, fully stocked game chest, books, cable TV, wireless internet, etc.. For those who love to cook, the kitchen has lots of spices and all those things you don't want to pack up for a weekend but don't want to cook without. Even during winter, we enjoyed sitting on the deck for the sunset, watching the birds that came to say hello. Good hiking if you want to leave the house but there is no reason to do that! I want to stay a week next time." - Peggy

An amazing and private view of the mountains and lake from virtually the entire house

"My wife and I got away for the long holiday weekend and were fortunate to stay in Bella Vista. It is located on the side of a hill, giving it an amazing and private view of the mountains and lake from virtually the entire house. We enjoyed the house, the fireplace, the fully stocked home with nearly anything you can think of at your fingertips, and the surrounding area. We ate at some wonderful restaurants and visited some local wineries in and around Hiawassee and Young Harris. In short, we had a great time in this very relaxing and peaceful gem of a home. We certainly will find some time to return!" - Douglas C.

Convenient location between Hiawassee, GA and Hayesville, NC

"The views are spectacular even from the loft! We enjoyed the privacy this lovely home afforded and the convenient location between Hiawassee, GA and Hayesville, NC. We didn't want for anything during our stay except more time! Extremely well stocked kitchen, comfortable layout, clean, homey and beautifully appointed. An illuminated Christmas tree greeted us on arrival - very nice touch! We also appreciated the bird seed supply which we happily dispersed on the deck rail first thing in the morning. The parade of visitors began before we left the deck! We are bird lovers so this was a special treat. Our hosts were obviously very focused on providing an enjoyable and memorable experience for their guests. Can't wait to return" - Joe and Patty

Our weekend at Bella Vista was perfect

"Our weekend at Bella Vista was perfect. Monica was extremely responsive and accessible before and during our stay. The mountain home is generously and beautifully appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous panoramic views and hummingbirds. Staying at Bella Vista was everything we had hoped it would be. Thank you," - Sherrie
