Each of the beautiful properties below offer an optional boat rental with your stay. Note that the boat rental option is not automatically included — you must request this from the owner and sign a separate boat rental agreement to have the boat use available during your stay. Most of the boat rental rates are very reasonable and will cost less than rentals at local marinas.

Rental Properties with Boats on Lake Nottely

Lake Nottely is a beautiful mountain lake near Blairsville, GA and makes a great choice for Summer boating. Approximately 70 percent of the shoreline on Lake Nottely is owned by the U.S. Forest Service and is natural and undeveloped.

Visitors to the lake should note that Lake Nottely is a TVA working lake that does a major water drawdown every year, usually right after Labor Day. In a year with normal rainfall, the water level in Nottely Reservoir varies about 20 feet from summer to winter to provide seasonal flood storage. The water in many coves will go away during this time, and boats will be pulled out of the water until next season. That also means that generally boat rentals are not available from mid-September through the end of April (when lake levels are lower).

Visit tva.gov to learn more about the TVA drawdowns.
