Robbinsville is rich in mountain heritage and culture and offers the finest amenities in country living.

Lake Chatuge straddles the border of North Georgia and Western North Carolina and is a favorite mountain tourist destination spring through fall, offering miles of shoreline to enjoy the finest in lake living. If you’re looking for a more idyllic lifestyle, you’ll find it in the beautiful rural locations of Hiawassee, Georgia, and Hayesville, North Carolina, the two towns bordering Lake Chatuge. Water skiing, wakeboarding, and bass fishing abound in this bucolic oasis.

The famous Georgia Mountain Fair, which features regional food, music, crafts, and fun, comes two times a year to the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds located on the shores of Lake Chatuge. The Anderson Music Hall, also located in the fairgrounds, is a favorite local music venue year-round.

Looking to live the lake life, but still want to enjoy the opportunities that come with living close to a small growing city on the outskirts of Atlanta? Lake Lanier borders Hall, Forsyth, and Dawson Counties, making it accessible to several growing urban areas.

Lake Hartwell, Lake Keowee, and Lake Jocassee also offer picturesque, premiere lake property within driving distance to trendy downtown Greenville, South Carolina, as well as Spartanburg and Greer. Not to mention you’re in a great location to catch a Clemson Tigers football game in the fall!
