Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are Tim and Jolana, and our little dog named Spanky, who is pictured above. We are former Floridians who lived in South Florida our entire lives. We moved to north Georgia, to to escape the hustle and bustle, over 20 years ago. We retired two years ago and purchased our 'Once Upon A Time' cabin in the lovely mountain town of Ellijay about a year ago. Since then we spent many hours preparing our cabin to make it as beautiful, cozy and inviting as possible. We hope you enjoy spending some time at our 'Once Upon A Time' cabin ........where your next adventure begins.
