Gorgeous mountain retreat
Gorgeous mountain retreat
My family and I stayed in this beautiful mountain home for 2 1/2 weeks in June. We have visited the Sky Valley area annually for more than ten years, and this is, by far, our favorite home. Kayren was wonderful and very accommodating to our needs. We spent almost every night on the back deck and loved watching the gorgeous sunsets. We enjoyed most of our meals on the deck as the temperature was very comfortable, even though we visited during the month of June. We love Sky Valley and the surrounding areas. We enjoy hiking portions of the Bartram Trail, the Glenn Falls area, Whiteside Mountain, etc. There are also many waterfalls to view. My kids loved going to the Sky Valley pool each afternoon, and my husband and I appreciated the use of the fitness room, hot tubs, and sauna. We also love driving into Highlands. There are many great restaurants, the Old Edwards Spa, and Kilwins for fudge, ice cream, and chocolate goodies. I strongly recommend this home as a great vacation rental. Kayren is a great hostess and the home is amazing. We plan on returning next year!

Sensational Home and Breathtaking Views!
Wow! What a wonderful time we had. Your home is truly sensational. Everyday we enjoyed your breathtaking view and every night we sat by the fire. A few nights here was just what we needed to relax and rejuvenate. We definitely plan to return late Spring.

A Great Place to Share with Good Friends
What a delightful weekend! The house is wonderful and instantly comfortable. We especially enjoyed the panorama of weather views--temps from the 70's to the 20's--all in one weekend. And a sky that reflected it all. We had great burgers in Highlands and at the Flip Side. We enjoyed meeting the son of the builder of the house who happened to be up here this weekend. And we must have burned a cord of firewood. A great place to share with good friends Mon. AM--what a night! We experienced some of the effects of 'Frankenstorm'. Tremendous winds! The grill cover was blown off and away--had to be rescued. Doors rattled and we lost power for a bit. It just added to our adventure and made us forget that the Gators lost!!!

What a Wonderful time!
What a sweet way to spend some much needed time off...2 of us came from Californiam 2 from Atlanta. This cabin in the sky now feels like home. First, we had a productive day of hiking, ending with a decadent meal at Madison's. Second, a mellow misty day of lounging, topped off with a very necessary gorge fest at The Dillard House. What a wonderful time-out this has been...thank you for opening your home to us!!

We were so happy when we arrived at this beautiful home to confirm it's comfortable charm and incredible views. The owner welcomed us with open arms and could not have been kinder. I felt like we were friends before we arrived. The home was every bit as lovely as the photos showed. In fact, it was one of the most comfortable homes that we've ever rented. Without being kitschy the decor was warm and personal and in keeping with the feel of a well loved mountian home. We all felt so at home there and slept like babies every night. The deck was a fabulous place to hang out and take in the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The kitchen was especially important to me because I would be cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my family, What a delight! This was definitiely one of the most well-stocked kitchens that I've ever had the pleasure of cooking in at a rental property. The main purpose of our visit was to rest, relax, be comfortable and enjoy the views and that's just what we did. It was a really great Thanksgiving family vacation.

Owner response: We are always so happy to know that our guests are so pleased with our home. And that is what it is--a 'home'! We leave it as we live in it for others to enjoy. It is truly a one of a kind rental property.
This was a perfect weekend for us. The house is beautifully decorated and feels more like a home than a rental. The deck off of the back of the home is large and has a beautiful view of the valley and mountains. Because of a last-minute family emergency, the owner was very flexible in letting us move the date back a day. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine to celebrate our 20 year anniversary -- here's to 20 more! Thank you Kayren.

Owner response: It is so rewarding to see how much people enjoy our home and what a wonderful relaxing retreat it is for them. And it is a HOME in every respect.
This place is perched high atop a mountain ridge with beautiful views, clean mountain air, and beautiful accommodations. The Fall leaves were breathtaking! And the owner went out of the way to make sure all of our needs were met. Highly recommended.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this property last year with friends. The word is AHHHHHHHHHHH. WOW, what a relaxing and most wonderful experience! The property was way more than we expected. The views are totally awesome. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing place, this is it!! We do intend to return.

About the owner: Wallace visited Sky Valley searching for the perfect mountain house for many months and finally found his perfect mountain retreat. In 2008 he met and married the love of his life, Kayren. She completely redecorated the house to its present fabulous state. Wallace was born in Toccoa, Ga where he has owned his own business for 40+ years. He graduated The University of Georgia School of Phamacy and is an avid Bulldog football fan. He lived on Lake Rabun for many years until he desired to live in Sky Valley.
Why the Owner Chose Sky Valley:
Sky Valley was a 'dream' for Wallace to own a home. After marrying his wife, Kayren, he began to share her home on Lake Lanier in Harbour Point Yacht Club. They spend their time between the two vacation homes. They are thrilled to share this beautiful, personal home with the fortunate quests who will stay here.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The breathtaking views, the quiet and serene surroundings, the luxurious and comfortable furnishings. It is the most relaxing and beautiful atmosphere that anyone could ever possibly enjoy. Many mornings you awake to the clouds below you in the valley.
