  • Wonderful weekend getaway


    My family had a wonderful time at the cabin. Everything about it was just what we were looking for! From the hot tub, to the gas log fireplaces, to the ping-pong, air-hockey, board games, puzzles, and movies all our comfort and entertainment desires were exceeded! The kitchen was well supplied to prepare all our meals, the bedroom and bathrooms were comfortable, up-to date, and tastefully decorated, and everything was set up for comfort. We didn’t have to fight over the best seating when we watched a family movie because there were multiple reclining couches! To top it off, we had snow and got to feed about 7 deer that came by for a visit! We will definitely recommend this place to others and stay here again!

  • Best Trip Ever!


    I dont even know where to start.. the cabin was BEAUTIFUL! I almost hate to write such a great review.... I feel like this is my "personal secret getaway" and I wanna keep it to myself 😄. Our family had everything we needed to cook a full course Thanksgiving meal!.. All the personal touches throughout the cabin just made it feel like home. The decor was perfect... and the attention to details just made it the perfect stay... The deer corn on the porch.. the deer in the morning at our front door...the fireplace. The fireplaces..the huge master bathroom...I could go on for days! CAN'T WAIT FOR OUR NEXT TRIP! Thank you for sharing your cabin with us! . And i loved the little soaps with the cabin name on the box .

  • Great weekend trip.


    Very clean and spacious cabin for a family adult weekend trip. Nice quiet area where you can unwind outdoors by fire pit or inside by a fireplace. Check in was easy and location convenient to Ellijay. Did not get to use some amenities due to quick trip but would definitely recommend this cabin.

  • Amazing Cabin . Peaceful and quiet


    This cabin is absolutely beautiful. It is a e floor cabin and has a bed and bath on each floor.. the third floor has a pingpong and fuze ball table. A hot tub on the bottom patio. The cabin is extremely clean and organized. Kitchen is very stocked with supplies. Bring some deer feed or by at the local Walmart and feed the deer. they come up to the cabin.. The owner was extremely nice and was extremely helpful when I had to adjust my schedule!

    The area has enclosed pools and a playground, but it was winter so we didnt visit them.
