We were looking for a place to stay near the Towns County Park where we wanted to see the Rhododendrons in bloom. Lake Chatuge Lodge is in walking distance so we booked a room for two nights.

We stayed here for a post Christmas weekend getaway. The best feature is the real fireplace in the common sitting area. Clean modern rooms and a decent sized balcony, good for viewing the lake if you are in a lake side room.

My wife and I really enjoyed our recent stay. Your entire staff was extremely friendly, and answered all our questions about the area. The Lodge was nicely decorated for the Christmas season, and the fire in the fireplace was great. We felt very relaxed here.
