About Us

Lake Chatuge Lodge is a rustic two-star hotel set in the southern Blue Ridge Mountains on Lake Chatuge in Hiawassee, Georgia. The lodge is across the street from a public beach and a short trail walk away from Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds, site of a historic pioneer village. The lodge is also close to Hamilton Gardens, location of the largest rhododendron garden in Georgia, as well as boat rentals, horseback riding, golf courses, shopping and tennis courts. The lodge hosts wedding ceremonies and receptions and rehearsal dinners. Lakeside ceremonies are popular but couples may choose another outdoor space or opt for an indoor ceremony.

Great Room. The 1,450-square-foot Great Room adjoins the Presidential Suite on the top floor of the lodge. The suite features a stone fireplace, kitchen, meeting area and a large deck with views of Lake Chatuge. The space accommodates up to 75 guests.

Banquet Hall. The 1,400-square-foot Banquet Hall is located on the ground level. The room is an ideal space for indoor wedding ceremonies as well as receptions that include banquet seating, a dance floor and a band. The space holds up to 75 guests.


What You Should Know

The venue offers wedding packages and rehearsal dinner packages. Catering is done onsite by Chophouse of Hiawassee. The executive chef and owner works with couples to design a menu just for their wedding. Menu items include fresh seafood flown in daily, USDA beef and a world-class wine list and cocktails.

Wedding packages have two tiers. Tier 1 is priced for up to 50 guests while Tier 2 is priced for up to 75 guests. All packages include rental, setup and cleanup of space for an indoor or outdoor ceremony as well as for the reception. Linens are provided for tables at the reception and couples receive up to three sessions with a wedding coordinator.
