Property description

Bertie's Nest is a quaint, secluded home with nest-like treehouse views. The porch offers a swing and two rocking chairs with tealight lighting for evening ambiance.

The remodeled cabin is a one bedroom BUT please note it does sleep four adults and two children. The 720 sq. ft. floor plan is open and comfortable. It's basically one big square with pocket doors separating each room. The living room is quite spacious and has a warm cabin feel. The kitchen area has bar stool seating for three and there is table seating for five.

The living room has a VERY THICK sleeper sofa that folds out into a queen mattress. It feels more like a real bed than any other mattress we've found in a sleeper sofa. The main bedroom has a very comfortable queen sized bed that sleeps two. Off of the bedroom is an open but separate vanity area with sink and storage for towels, cleaning supplies, etc. This area leads into the bathroom which has another sink and tub/shower combination. There are doors on each side of the bathroom to separate it from the other rooms. Back toward the open vanity area is a large walk-in closet that has been furnished with a set of bunk beds. This is the PERFECT spot for your children.

For warmth and cooling, the living room offers a gas log fireplace and radiant space heating in other rooms which keep the cabin nice and toasty. For summer time weather, many prefer the doors open and fans running, but we do have two window air conditioner units which cool the upstairs nicely.

In the kitchen there is a K-cup coffee maker and a microwave, but there is no dishwasher, so you will be required to wash the dishes by hand. Please do not leave any dirty dishes behind. The kitchen is stocked with all the amenities and cookware like you were at home. There are even a few baking pans and a blender, toaster, and rice cooker.

All beds will have clean sheets ready for you to snuggle into upon your arrival. The sofa bed sheets will be located in the vanity area storage if needed.

The basement houses the washer and dryer.

Oh, I forgot to mention hiking! We are SO CLOSE to a trail head on the Appalachian Trail. Brasstown Bald is the highest point in Georgia and a short car ride away. Parking is $10 per vehicle but it's worth the fee. During open season they run a shuttle up to the top of the mountain for those wishing to skip the hike. But for those wanting to endure the 15-20 minute hike up, it is a nice, open paved trail all the way up. There is a look out station up top and a small theater which plays a video about Brasstown Bald.

If you are up for more vigorous hiking, there is the 1.5 hour (rough estimate) hike up Blood Mountain on the Appalachian trail. Gorgeous views await you up top. There is a hiking shelter and if it's good weather, there will be lots of people up there. If you have hiking sticks you'll enjoy them for your 1.5 hour journey down (we didn't have them though and did just fine). It's hard on the '40 something' knees, but still worth the effort!

Blairsville has so much to offer and some good restaurants. One of our favorites is Monte Alban (Mexican style food). I really like the vast amount of menu choices and everything we've eaten there is excellent. Jim's Smokin' Que is on the way into Blairsville and has THE BEST ribs I've ever eaten. But I warn you, get there early, they sell out of everything quickly and the lines are sooo long as the day goes on. Plan for lunch as the doors open. There is a small putt-putt course across from Jim's Smokin' Que for those wanting to knock around the golf ball with some fun flare.

If you want to go tubing down Nottely River, you can go to Pappy's and they will hook you up. Pappy's is this interesting compilation of buildings that are all tied together with a restaurant on the river (more homemade fudge choices than you've ever seen) and touristy type stores all around to shop in. They have a furniture store that sells ice cream inside and the coolest back deck with big swings to sit on and watch the river (and feed pellets to the ENORMOUS fish) as you enjoy the view. There are chickens and weird statues all around that give this place a real nostalgic type feel. In the winter there is an outdoor fireplace that is always stocked with wood and rocking chairs perfect for warming up while you chow down on ice cream.

Overall- Blairsville has it ALL! I love the cabin! I sleep the best when I am there! I can't say enough about the serenity, the feel of the place, and the cottage feel you will get inside Bertie's Nest. We know you'll love the Nest as much as we do.

Welcome to your vacation, let the good times roll!!!
