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.
