  • Secluded Vacation Home


    Wow, how do you describe a secluded location on the top of a mountain with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains? This was a perfect location for our mountain getaway. The owner provided everything but the food. This was one of the best VRBO locations that we had ever rented. From the spices in the cabinet to the toothbrush and toothpaste in the bathrooms to the firewood for the firepit, this place had just about anything one would need for comfort. The addition of outdoor lighting provided ample illumination to walk around the property at night.

    The bedrooms are large and provide plenty of space with large walking closets. Each bedroom also has its own fully stocked bathroom.

    I would highly recommend a 4-wheel drive vehicle to negotiate the steep incline on a gravel road getting to this home. We had no issues on our first time up the driveway in 2-wheel drive but used 4-wheel drive any time we came back to the property.

    Keep in mind that the closest grocery store is Piggly Wiggly in Dillard, GA which is about 6.6 miles away, so stock up before you show up.

    For entertainment, I would highly recommend Highlands Aerial Park for zipline adventures and The Vinyard at High Holly, both are only minutes away. We also played golf at Sky Valley Resort and the course is fabulous.

    In closing, I would like to thank the owners for sharing this beautiful location. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have taken in a long time. We will not hesitate to book this location.

  • Tranquility Lodge lives up to its name :)


    I recently had the pleasure of staying at Tranquility Lodge, a short-term rental mountain lodge, with my sister, and I must say it was a fabulous experience. From the moment we arrived, we were captivated by the peaceful and beautiful surroundings.

    One of the standout aspects of our stay was the cleanliness of the lodge. It was immaculate, and it's clear that great care is taken to maintain a high standard of cleanliness. This made us feel comfortable and at ease throughout our entire stay.

    What impressed us the most were the little touches that made our time at Tranquility Lodge extra special.

    Overall, our stay at Tranquility Lodge was nothing short of delightful. The attention to detail, cleanliness, and the welcoming atmosphere contributed to a thoroughly enjoyable getaway. My sister and I are already planning our next visit and can't wait to return to this peaceful retreat.

    If you like gem mining, there are many near by and we found some real "honkers"--122 carat ruby to be exact:)

  • Tranquil and Romantic Escape!


    We stayed a few nights here and wish we could have stayed a bit longer. The sunsets were truly awe-inspiring.

    Tranquility Lodge lived up to its name and was perfect for a romantic getaway.

    We spent a lot of our time chilling on the back patio enjoying the fresh mountain air.

    We felt right at home and it was so cozy. Carol was a great host. Will definitely come back!
