Why Chris Swett chose Nantahala Bay
The North Georgia Mountains host some of the most beautiful, yet affordable, places to live in the United States. Bel Aire Overlook takes advantage of a sunny southern exposure and 400 foot elevation (above the valley) to host a spectacular view of the lake and mountains, with the highest point in Georgia, Brasstown Bald, center stage. The wonderful view is combined with the convenience of being within the Hiawassee city limits without feeling like you're in town.
What makes this House unique
Hiawassee hosts Georgia Mountain Fair and Anderson Music Hall, which provide year-round entertainment with frequent concerts, special events and the annual North Georgia Fair and Fall Festivals. Lake Chatuge offers boating, fishing, water skiing, swimming and other recreation activities. The location is also convenient to tourist destinations such as Helen, Blue Ridge, and Harrahs Cherokee Valley River Casino in Murphy, NC. It is a convenient drive from the Atlanta Metro area and a great summer escape from the heat of south and central Florida.

Location is a plus for this property. Only minutes from town and a wonderful view.
Home was very clean. Back deck with fire pit, bar plus grill. Couldn’t ask for much more. Inside pool table and massage chairs.
The place was immaculate and even better than described! The owners thought of everything for their guest comfort. The location is very convenient and easy to find. The owner was very attentive. The views are spectacular. This is definitely a rare find. I was staying here for a wedding so I did not have time to enjoy to the fullest, but I plan to come back so I can. The
The overlook is secluded with a fabulous view and still close to everything. Chris’ communication is spot in. I loved the sign letting us know which house is the overlook because you can’t see it from the road. We came here with 3 couples and there was plenty of room. As a matter of fact the downstairs has a full 1 bedroom apartment including kitchen and a game room. There is a unique spiral staircase that brings you to the downstairs. We have never been to a place that was so well equipped. Great place for multiple couples or families. Looking forward to returning. Thank you for a great weekend. Sincerely, Wayne and Paulette.
This home is lovely! It was very clean and comfortable for two couples to share. It also had a complete downstairs unit that we didn’t need. Also, close to town. If you are staying in the Hiawassee area this home has it all!
Amazing view and beautiful home
Enjoyed our Labor Day weekend at this vacation rental. Chris was great to deal with and the hospitality provided was wonderful. I can't tell you how many times I commented on how thoughtful the owners were in providing all the homey touches. And the view would be hard to beat. Absolutely gorgeous!! The only thing to be aware of is the steap drive to the house. I'm sure if you're used to it, it isn't too bad. But I was a little nervous lol...I would recommend this rental to anyone.
It was a beautiful weekend. The house is incredible! There is chess, billiards, and a beautiful propane fire.
The view is to die for.
Can’t wait to visit again.
