Big Canoe cabin description

Located an hour north of Atlanta in the gated mountain community of Big Canoe, this one-of-a-kind rustic log cabin is truly unlike anything you've ever seen.

And our winter rates are some of the best around, at only $399 for a 3-night stay. That's the total price.

The cabin was originally built in Virginia in the mid-1800s and features hand-hewn chestnut logs 26 feet long and over 20 feet wide. In the spring of 2005, the original structure was carefully dismantled, and the logs were tagged and shipped to their new home in north Georgia. Over the next two years the cabin was re-assembled, and a new wing was added on the rear to house a large kitchen and dining area.

A stacked-stone fireplace soaring over 20 feet high greets you as you walk throuhe front door. Overlooking the main room is a loft bedroom (plus a full bath with a clawfoot tub). Kids will love the bunk room on the main floor that features beds hand-made from reclaimed barn timbers.

As you walk from the main cabin on your way to the kitchen, you'll pass by an oversized and inviting window seat that's perfect for an afternoon nap. The flooring and walls in this cozy room are also treasures from the original Virginia cabin. Overhead, timbers and ceiling boards from a second hundred-year-old cabin add to your journey back in time.

Upon entering the kitchen, you'll find all the amenities and conveniences of a contemporary suburban home, with accents such as granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. But there are still reminders of days gone by. The farmhouse table was fashioned from decades-old barn wood and sections of logs that were unused in the cabin re-construction process. Overhead, exposed rafters are yet more remnants from an early settler's cabin. A large screen porch off the kitchen offers you a great place to relax. The custom-built swing is seven feet long and literally large enough to sleep on, flanked by a one-of-a-kind outdoor recliner that affords you a great view of the creek below.

With two more bedrooms and a full bath downstairs, you'll have ample accommodations for up to eight or more.

                        We LOVED the rustic charm mixed with the modern appliances. This home is decorated with the items that our parents or grandparents would have used growing up. Swinging on the back porch swing, listening to the running creek, talking about old times was awesome. We would STRONGLY recommend a 4WD type vehicle for all the hills and steep driveways. We go on girls trips (as often as we can) and stay at different locations to be able to explore new areas. Big Canoe is HUGE! Due to personal and medical setbacks we were unable to venture through the whole community. We are really looking forward to coming back. Jay, You are an awesome man. Thank you for your generosity! Tina, Pam and Robin

                        We had a wonderful time at this unique cabin. We had enough space for everyone to spread out, and our group of seven (four adults, three teens/pre-teens) was very comfortable. The layout was good for two families to share. The cabin combines rustic charm and modern comforts. Great kitchen (the table is perfect for cards!) The kids had fun exploring the creek beside the house. We took a late-night trip to the ballfield for some stargazing - incredible! We even had a few days of flurries, which made the cabin even more beautiful! The owner, Jay, was easy to reach, and prompt to reply. We would not hesitate to rent from him again.

                        Has a very enjoyable stay. I was in the area for my daughter's wedding and it really fit the bill. Seemed like the best value around, and I hope to be able to stay there again to visit with my family. We underutilized the cabin as it would be very comfortable with about eight people. Communication and transaction with the owner were clear, and concise. We had torrential downpours during our stay so we did not use the trails, but they look inviting as well. I would highly recommend.

                        We went up to Big Canoe for my cousin's wedding. It was spectacular!! The cabin is amazing! It is beautifully decorated. We loved the trails that run beside the cabin. I would defiantly recommend this place. I can't wait to go back!

                        We had a very enjoyable, relaxing, too short, stay. The cabin accommodations…18th meets 21st century…and owner were wonderful. The long swing within the screened in porch was a favorite. One receives a sense of accomplishment upon reaching the top of the cabin’s driveway since it is so steep and twenty minutes from the entrance. We took advantage of the local hiking trail and spent a beautiful day at nearby Gibbs Gardens. Everyone agreed that if the opportunity presents itself in the future, we would return.

                        Enjoyed every moment of our stay. We were pleasantly surprised at the cute combination of old log cabin and modern amenities. The cabin is well stocked and clean. The proximity to Atlanta is a great plus. The owner was very helpful ( follow his map/directions inside Big Canoe / community as GPS does not work). All the 8 (adults) in our group had a very good time......... The cabin location is good -- near a creek and hiking trail. Would recommend to friends and love to revisit.

                        We stayed at this WONDERFUL cabin for 4 nights. All the furnishings are just right, a good mix of the old with the new. The living room has this great fireplace and lodge type of high ceiling. The loft bedroom is open to the living room ~ we loved it up there!!! The lovely granite top kitchen is very well stocked and has this great large family style table so the cook is not alone (love the knot whole in the table and the comfy cushioned bench seat. The screened porch is so nice my son left saying he wants to build one just like it at his home ~ swinging bench and all. Hiking trails right outside the door is a real plus. I would love to stay here again in the future. Thank you to Jay & Sherry for sharing this treasure.

                        Jay was exceptionally accommodating during our stay. He has done an extremely good job putting this cabin together. Everything about our stay was perfect. We came for our anniversary and this home is perfect for a romantic getaway or a family trip. It is much bigger than it appears in the photos. The proximity to the hiking trails doesn't get any better. We will definitely be staying here again. Thank you so much Jay!
