Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Hello! My name is Gwen Morris. My husband, Richard is retired from a 26 year Air Force career and we are both retired from Civil Service. We live in Middle Georgia. I am originally from Ft. Gaines GA and Albany GA. Richard is originally from San Antonio TX and Naples FL. We have two daughters, six grandchildren. We LOVE Snuffy's Shack and we hope our guests love it too!

Why the Owner Chose Hayesville:
Of course, the first thing we noticed was the mountain scenery, it was spectacular the day we came to look at the property. When we stepped into the living room area, it was WOW all over again because the flooring, walls and ceilings are heart of pine. The kitchen is unique with wood cabinet doors made of chicken screen wire. Arriving at the cabin, we entdddered thru the front porch. After touring the cabin, we stepped outside to a screened in back porch....and a very large deck attached. The master bath has a Jacuzzi. The L-shaped loft upstairs has a small deck attached. This cabin is so unique and beautiful and our family loves coming here to relax. It's the best place in the world to be!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Free unlimited long distance phone calls to the USA only. Free Windstream DSL Internet service, DIRECT TV for your entertainment and family board games. Porch sitting on the screened back porch is a favorite activity for most guests, who enjoy watching the clouds form animals, angels and other forms around the mountain. Beyond the screened porch, there is a large deck equipped with a gas grill, an outdoor table with four chairs, a hammock and deck furniture. It's a perfect place for guests to gather as a family to have a sunset cookout.
