Big Canoe cabin description

Special August 11-30, No Cleaning Fee! (For rentals checking out no later than 8/30.)
All the comforts of home in the majesty of the 8000 acres of beautiful woods and mountains of Big Canoe. We invite you to enjoy our weekend home in the woods – the peace of the darkness at night, the glorious leaves in fall, the occasional sighting of a bear and frequent sighting of deer and wild turkey. All the while you have access to a bounty of activities from 3 lakes, two swimming pools, the famous rock slide, golf, tennis, 20 miles of trails, ancient Indian rock mounds, and numerous waterfalls. Enjoy nature at its finest just an hour and a half north of Atlanta.

This cabin is fully outfitted for your family or several couples. The main level includes a family room with large fireplace, reclining leather sofa, cable tv; dining area with large table; updated kitchen stocked for every possible need; clothes washer and dryer; a bathroom with shower; and a bedroom with comfy King bed. Upstairs is a sitting loft, a bathroom with shower/tub combo, and two bedrooms. One bedroom has two antique 3/4 size beds (larger than a single bed and smaller than a double bed) with ultra firm mattresses. The largest bedroom has an antique full size bed and a sitting area. Upstairs bedrooms have tvs with dvd players and plenty of closet space. Please note that we do not have internet service at the cabin, but if you simply cannot be without internet, there is free wifi available at the Big Canoe Clubhouse and the Fitness Center.

This mountain cabin is bright with lots of windows and open spaces. Furnishings include lots of antiques and some contemporary pieces.

Our home is located near the Indian Rocks Park of Big Canoe. You can walk from the house to the trail that meanders among 8 ancient indian mounds and down to the edge of the quiet lake.

2-night minimum rentals except for holiday weekends which have a 3-night minimum.

NOTE: Because our cabin is currently on the market, we are only responding to inquiries within 45 days of desired rental date. We don't want to commit to a renter and then sell the cabin. We hope you understand.

                  Location

                  Over 20 miles of trails within Big Canoe, including along river, around lake, to three waterfalls, and within walking distance of our cabin, the trail wanders through 8 old Indian rock mounds and down to the edge of the lake.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We live in a historic house in Newnan, Georgia, with our four teenage children. Chuck is a police officer with College Park PD, and LaVann is a fundraiser with Mercer University.

                  Why the Owner Chose Big Canoe:
                  We have been coming to Big Canoe for the past 14 years to a family member's cabin. We always knew we wanted a place of our own,and are so excited to have a weekend home here. One of my favorite things is the drive into Big Canoe from the main gate. The winding road under the covered bridge, through gorgeous wooded hillsides, lakes, mountains, and the golf course is magnificent. I always feel my body calming as we make this route. After 14 years, I am still awed and inspired as we drive it. Our kids have grown up here - climbing hillsides to find special rocks, sighting the occasional bear, fishing at Lake Pettit, playing ball in the playfield, their first brave trips down the rock slide as little ones, and exploring the many miles of trails through woods and to waterfalls. Big Canoe is our favorite place outside Paris.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  We enjoy this home year-round. In the winter, we love to cozy up to a fire and watch an old movie or even a football game after a long walk in the woods. Spring bring more walks on the trails and especially along Blackwell Creek to see the mountain laurel blooming. We often take kayaks down the nearby Amicalola River. In the summer we enjoy spending time at the Swim Club, including the rock slide and the canoes. In the Fall, the colors of the trees are an incredible sight.
