"We just came back from our time in "Paradise". What a great place! We celebrated my parents' 50th Anniversary over the 4th of July weekend. The house accommodated all of us (8 adults, 4 kids, and 2 dogs) extremely well. Great big kitchen that we could work in together (great supply of kitchen equipment, pots and pans, even spices and seasonings). Large rooms upstairs and down for playing games (tons of games, movies, books and toys). Big decks to gather and enjoy the day (loads of chairs and an outdoor kitchen). It was really great that the main floor was handicap accessible because one of our party couldn't manage stairs but was never excluded from any of the celebration. The kids loved the ping pong/pool table, and the swimming passes for the great areas in Big Canoe. My parents loved the fact that we could all be together in one house, but still had room to have some "away time" if anyone needed it. The area is really lovely and it's close to lots of hiking. We went to a beautiful waterfall about 15 minutes away. I can't say enough about how great the place was for our family. And Dwight was terrific. Answered all questions right away and gave excellent recommendations. I would highly recommend "Paradise" and look forward to coming back."

"We traveled to Georgia with several other families for a softball tournament in Cumming. Our hope was to escape the confines of a hotel and be able to interact with our friends in a relaxed environment. The Mountain house lived up to our expectations! The house itself was roomy and modern inside. Plenty of room for the teens to hang out in one area and adults in a separate area. The adults took advantage of the screened in porch each night to relax and listen to the katydids. The porch even had a good sized tv and ceiling fans for those warmer evenings. The view from the decks was breathtaking and relaxing. We took many many pictures but none did the view justice, it was breathtaking. All three showers were gorgeous and very modern with their tile decor'. It was amazing that we never ran out of hot water as the teens wanted to shower after their games before going to the lake.
The amenities at the Swim Club were fabulous! The kids (and adults) had a blast swimming in the lake with its inflatable slides, balance beam, and everyone's favorite the bounce cushion. That was an added bonus that made the trip to the Swim Club so much fun. Everyone enjoyed the natural rock slides and watching everyone go zipping down the chute. The kids also enjoyed getting a little exercise on the paddle boards, canoes, kayaks, and paddle boats. We never got the olympic sized pool that was somewhere else in the community because there was so much variety and we had soooo much fun at the Swim Club.
I had several pre-trip questions for Joanne who answered them in a timely fashion and was very helpful."

"The property is really great and comfortable. Getting there was a bit problematic at the start as we could not find the North gate. GPS coordinates for this would be useful especially for travellers who arrive after dark. Big Canoe is a large gated community that is distinctly upmarket and well managed. After confirming our particulars, the guard house supplied us with a pass that we could use to re-enter at any time. Driving to the house from the North gate took about 5 km along narrow but well maintained mountain roads. The entrance pathway is steep and narrow, and you will find it better to reverse your car at the house further down the road before driving in. The house itself is very well kept and the fittings and decor are all top notch. Even the supplied soap was spa quality according to my wife, and she is a good judge of such things. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and the master room downstairs is especially spacious. It was a pity that I could not try out the telescope in the lounge as the area was overcast during my entire stay. I am really struggling to find a negative aspect to this property (I always comment on something for a balanced review), and the only thing I could think of was the lack of an animal-proof garbage bin outside. There is a lot of wildlife out there and the garbage bag we left overnight was ripped to shreds. Although we normally dispose of rubbish at the disposal centre at the North gate, this may not be convenient at night. Even so, this was the best property that I have stayed in so far, and we do travel extensively in the US and around the world."
