Toccoa cabin description
What do you get when you marry two vintage 1910 farm houses by placing them 6 feet apart, and connecting them via a modern structure inspired by the “dog trot” architecture of the Travelers Rest of the 1800's, which still stands just down the road ? You get the newly renovated, modernized, and greatly expanded Lost Moose Lodge ( stand by for pictures and youtube video to be posted by mid-July ).
The “new” house was donated by a neighbor when in dilapidated condition, it was moved next to the existing structure and has been lovingly restored and largely returned to its original state, while also being placed over a large basement, with modern bathroom, kitchenette, etc. There is not a single piece of drywall in the house, heart pine walls, flooring and ceiling abound.
Below text was written before the second house, connecting structure, wash-room, and full large walk-in basement were added.
Lake visible from living room, screen porch, and loft. Our cabin is surrounded by huge azaleas, mature trees, and often by deer. It is decorated with countless artifacts, rural antiques, and vintage signs. On the property you will find walking trails, campsites, and an easy short stroll to our gentle beached, south-facing shoreline, and large deep-water covered dock. You will find lots of places to explore on the property, on the lake, and at countless nearby destinations.
Cabin features heart pine floors and walls, functional wood burning stove, a tree banister, drawing supplies, hundreds of books, games, puzzles, oil lamp, claw foot tub, etc. If these will help set the stage for your relaxing vacation, then you will feel at home the moment you step in the door.
8 miles to Toccoa, 1 ½ miles to boat launch, and only 15 Miles to “The Orchards Golf Club” with many other world class golf venues nearby. Tallulah Gorge mountain hikes, shopping in Highlands, Clarkesville, Clayton, Hartwell, Toccoa, to visiting Clemson University are all within 45 miles or less etc. But who cares, most guests just park the car and try not leave all week.

- Lost Moose Lodge is two approximate 1910 farm houses that were moved to this lake front lot and then connected. The grounds are flat and there is much area to run around and play and explore, with gentle access to the deep water dock. We do have neighbors in this private, no trailers, neighborhood, but they are pretty far away and their is plenty of privacy both in the lodge and on the grounds. One house can be for your early to bed crowd, the other for night owls and / or snorers. ...moreless

ReviewsWrite a review
We have stayed at the Lost Moose Cabin for 3 years running, always in late summer and fall. It is a wonderful place to kick back, sit on the large screened in porch and watch the kids explore in the secluded woods. The dock is great, last time we were up there we rented a pontoon boat from Harbor Lights and had a great time on the boat and the large dock. The bonfire at night with smores is the best!

Greetings, We are the owners of "The Lost Moose Lodge". My wife and I purchased the little gem over 10 years ago, and it was love at first site. Our son is now in all sorts of weekend activities so we are not getting up to the cabin as much as we used to, so we decided to start renting it out a little. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: Charlotte, Doug, and Bennett Bock...we love our place, and love to share it with families who enjoy the lake and the surrounding areas. We are outdoor people and our lot is great for that as well as enjoying the dock and lake.
Why the Owner Chose Toccoa:
We fell in love with Lost Moose Lodge the first time we set eyes on it in 1997. I had been researching Lake Hartwell for several years, as I travel up and done I-85 on business. I could not wait to tell my wife about it. She was dubious, until I showed it to her. We now have a 11 year old son who is very busy, so we rent it out occasionally to help pay the expenses and to share this gem with others.
