Lake Blue Ridge

Nestled amidst the North Georgia Mountains, Lake Blue Ridge stands out as a unique blend of natural beauty and modern convenience. Situated just a short walk from the vibrant heart of downtown Blue Ridge, this lake is more than just a water body; it’s a serene retreat adjacent to a bustling hub of shops, eateries, and art spaces that brim with cultural vibrancy throughout the year.

Lake Blue Ridge, with its shimmering aquamarine waters, is undeniably one of Georgia’s most scenic mountain lakes. Spanning 3,290 acres, the lake and its surroundings are replete with over 90 national forest campsites, multiple boat ramps, the well-equipped Lake Blue Ridge Marina, and several public areas perfect for picnicking and swimming. A noteworthy fact is that a staggering 80% of Lake Blue Ridge’s shoreline is part of the Chattahoochee National Forest, overseen by the USDA Forest Service.

The lake stretches 11 miles, boasting 65 miles of shoreline. While a quarter of this is developed, the rest remains untouched, preserving its natural splendor. Lake Blue Ridge owes its origin to the Blue Ridge Dam, constructed on the Toccoa River by the Toccoa Electric Power Company in 1930. When constructed, it was the Southeast’s largest earthen dam. By 1939, the Tennessee Valley Authority had acquired it, harnessing its potential for hydroelectric power.

Having had the privilege of representing numerous clients in transactions around Lake Blue Ridge, I’ve garnered extensive knowledge about the lake and the inherent value of its surrounding properties. If you’re considering buying or selling here, I’d be thrilled to guide you through the journey.

For those yearning for budget-friendly lake living, I’m also well-versed in Lake Nottely, Lake Chatuge, and Lake Allatoona. The latter offers the allure of lakeside living just a brief commute from Atlanta’s outskirts.
