About Joe Santana

We were married 10 years ago just outside Smokey Mtn National Park and have been in love with the South East mountain ranges ever since. A friend of ours turned us onto a place on VRBO they had stayed at. We booked it and have been visiting the Rabun Gap/Clayton area every year for the last 10 years. We have had a wonderful experience with VRBO in the past, so decided to take a chance and purchase our own piece of the mountains. While we wish we could spend everyday there, we can not yet afford to do so. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Joe Santana purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Joe Santana chose Rabun Gap

We have the fondest memories of Black Rock Mountain State Park and Lake. With Wolffork Valley being so close, we had been looking at homes there for quite some time. Once we arrived at "Take A Paws" and took in the view, we instantly knew that this was our paradise. The view, the rustic fireplace, everything just spoke to us. We hope you feel the same way.

Best Cabin yet!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best cabins we have ever stayed in! I love how they cater to the pups. Not many do. We thoroughly enjoyed it and are already looking to find other dates!

Million dollar view!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just as described. The view was our favorite part and made for a few nice days of drinking wine by the fire and looking out over the mountains. We loved the spacious master bedroom and the guest house is perfect for a little added privacy if you have another couple staying.

The owners were very communicative with us and checked in after the first day to ensure everything was perfect - don't worry, they checked in by text as to not disturb their guests. We had one small problem and they were very understanding and went above and beyond to address it. We highly recommend this cabin for anyone looking to relax, recharge, and enjoy a spectacular view.

Awesome property and just as awesome views

  • 5 of 5

We fully enjoyed our stay. The home is better than the pictures and so are the views. The kitchen is fully equipped, so if you want to stay in and cook a meal you can. There were a few pretty cool days so we stayed at the house a lot and with he views and comfortable house we had a great time.

Beautiful place to stay. Highly recommend it.

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing, and it was a pleasure communicating with Joe with any questions we had. One small issue popped up on our end and he quickly helped us to fix the issue. We aren't able to get away anywhere near as often as we'd like, and having a place that accepted dogs was a real treat (most places had strict rules regarding pets). We will definitely go back :)

Great property with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your property. We loved the completely fenced in yard and privacy that the house offered. Having the suite was perfect as we traveled with several other couples. The house was fully stocked with everything you could need during your stay. We look forward to enjoying your property this coming summer! Thank you for being so helpful.
