Property type guest house


About the property

Quiet guesthouse with a view. We are located in Northeast GA, one hour north of the Mall of Georgia in Atlanta, 45 minutes from Helen, and Clemson, 2 minutes from the beautiful Toccoa Falls and Toccoa Falls College and historic downtown Toccoa. Nearby are beautiful hiking trails, wineries and over 40 waterfalls. Our guest house has 5 beds and two couches, a full kitchen, two baths, two porches and is handicapped accessible upon request. Our rate is for four guests. This includes both day and night use. The guest house can be used for small parties and general get-togethers, for an additional fee beyond the nightly guest fee. Also there is an additional charge of $20.00 per night and/or day per guest for more than 4 guests. The maximum limit is 7 guests and this includes children of ALL ages. Since there are only 5 beds, two people would have to use our comfy couches.

Guests often see deer, fox, wild birds and beautiful sunrise/sunsets. Depending on the season, you might be able to see or taste our grapes, blueberries, figs, pears, cherries, pecans, or walnuts if the deer or squirrels don't get them first! Perfect for a family get-together, romantic get-away, vacation lodging, week-end travel. It is primarily an adult facility due to our many antiques and upgraded amenities. However it is child friendly with limitations.

We also offer Uber services for Football games with advance notice.This Cottage would be perfect for a romantic getaway, or any type of vacation where one is looking to escape the "hustle and bustle." It is a perfect spot to spend family time. This property is NOT conducive for parties of more than 5 people maximum without owner consent. If additional people use the Cottage without disclosure, either day or night, you may be asked to leave immediately without refund and/or your deposit returned. This is what keeps our guest house nice for our future guests and we do NOT compromise on additional people beyond what is communicated. We make no apologies for this.

Check-in is after 3:00 pm and Check-out is before 12:00 noon unless special arrangements have been made with the owner. As a courtesy, please let us know your ETA an ETD if possible, prior to the reservation. This aids us greatly in our planning process. A week out, if we have not sent you additional Cottage info including directions and access codes, please contact us and we will send it right away.

Cottage Guidelines: There is no smoking nor animals allowed inside the cottage due to our son's allergies.

Additional charges:

1. There is a charge of $20.00 per night per guest over 4 people, not to exceed 7 people maximum.

2. There is a charge of $20.00 if guests use more than the 6-8 pieces of complimentary firewood.

3. If more than seven people use the Cottage for any reason, additional group charges apply. We are firm on this.

About Cyd Quarterman

We are college professors that are empty nesting. Our two boys have left us twiddling our thumbs. So we are looking for things to do. We love travelling and have appreciated staying in the homes of our hosts. We are ready to return the favor and want to share our little slice of paradise in the foothills of Georgia.

Why Cyd Quarterman chose Toccoa

The guesthouse was remodeled for Cyd's mother who needed it to be handicapped accessible. She moved back to Wisconsin and it sits empty waiting for people to enjoy the views, the wildlife and in season, our fruit. Although close to downtown Toccoa, the guesthouse sits on a ridge looking over the foothills. There are no neighbors so it is very secluded and quiet.

What makes this guest house unique

Beautiful views especially in the Autumn. Industrial farmhouse decor. Blueberries, cherry trees, pear trees, figs, walnut and pecan trees, and several different varieties of grapevines. Both the screened porch and back porch are secluded. Large unique fire pit with log furniture. Homemade granola, yogurt, fruit, coffees and teas are provided for breakfast. Apart from the kitchen, this facility and especially the ensuite has been designed to be handicapped accessible. Guests desiring handicapped accessible accommodations need to request this option specifically.

Absolute Perfection !!!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were wonderful ! Plenty of room for the whole family to relax, sit on the back porch and enjoy the view and make sure to utilize the fire pit. So many extras, they thought of everything, even having snacks here for us to munch on. My only advice is to bring house shoes, the concrete floors where cold. Burr!

The OB is beautiful inside and out! It is very clean and tastefully decorated. The furnishings and bedding are high quality and very comfortable. The property is scenic and peaceful yet located close to sites and restaurants. It was the getaway we were seeking.

You couldn't ask for more with this rental. The owners are caring and have a super eye for detail. The décor is all high end with a rustic antique look. Incredibly comfortable and very spacious. Lots of privacy and outdoor space. Rental included coffee, tea, hot cocoa, homemade granola and snacks. Would definitely stay again.
