About Jim Williams

Your Hosts: Jim and Eunice Williams

Jim Williams purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Jim Williams chose Blairsville

The property was selected for the beauty of the natural features and the privacy yet ease of access of the location.The cabin was professionally designed by an architect and completed by a skilled decorator. Each season brings a new view to the cabin. Long and short range mountain views open up from the late fall to the early spring as the amount of leaves change. A small branch babbles, rushes or hides and goes underground depending on the rain. The animal types vary from year to year and season to season.


What makes this cabin unique

The proximity of National Forest, Parks, and cool summer nights drew us to the area.

Amazing cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I planned a 3-night getaway just before Christmas to enjoy the crisp mountain air. Little did we know we'd end up blanketed under one of the highest snowfall amounts on record. Close to a foot! Well, we hadn't planned on it so we weren't totally prepared. We couldn't get our car to the top of the driveway, much less back to the main highways. So we were literally snowed in. But the experience was awesome, and we give all credit to our hosts (Jim and Eunice Williams). They own one of the prettiest and coziest cabins we've ever seen. It is fully stocked with everything you'd need. Plenty of cookware, plenty of soap, plenty of linens, plenty of toilet paper, etc. All we really needed was food to eat. When we almost ran out of that, Jim and Eunice had a back-up emergency food box waiting in the pantry! And they were kind enough to extend an extra night free of charge since we were snowed in. That is hospitality at its finest, folks.

Two of their neighbors even checked on us. One brought us a little extra food and the other used his personal Bobcat to plow the roads so we could eventually drive out!

Anyone considering a stay in Blairsville should check out the Dancing Bear. You won't be disappointed!

Wonderful cabin !

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is perfect for a relaxing getaway. It was absolutely satisfying. It is perfectly planned with all the amenities (everything works as said). The spa is really great and private (in the woods and screened). It also has a gas grill. The cabin was perfectly clean (inside and the patios) and totally covered with nets so that no bugs can come in while enjoying the patio. The bedrooms are spacious and beds are quite comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped and clean. It is quite away from any town so better get all your food and other specific needs before reaching here. 5+ stars !!

Beautifully Decorated Cabin near Blairsville GA

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Dancing Bear Cabin in July 2018. The cabin was nicely decorated and very clean. All linens, furniture, and appliances appeared to be brand new...or very well maintained! It was a pleasure to soak in the hot tub and cook on the gas grill after a day of hiking and fishing. Loved the huge screened-in porch out back, complete with picnic table and rocking chairs.

Clean, private, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean, which made things more relaxing. Surrounded by woods made it seculded and relaxing. The covered hot tub lended itself useful for a nice soak in the afternoon storm, after a nice hike in a local State Park. We plan to stay again in the future.

Exactly What We Were Expecting

  • 5 of 5

Yes, the many reviews touting the excellence of Dancing Bear as a wonderful get-away destination are correct. From the moment we arrived it felt like we were visiting a good friend. There were not "do not do this" signs all about, instead, all you need to relax is there for you to enjoy. The cleanliness...have to hand it to the homeowners and their helpers, there wasn't a time when we were concerned about using a dish pulled from the cupboard, or grabbing a towel for the quick dip in the Jacuzzi. No, this home was designed to be welcoming and enjoyed, and enjoy we did. The directions were great, the parking is easy (no steep driveways to navigate), and the proximity to downtown Blairsville is perfect (among many other places, too). Cabin Coffee was a delight and the folks so nice. The Farmer's Market couldn't have had a friendlier group of people to meet. We could go on and on, but the main thing is that when you make your payment for a stay here, you will not be disappointed. If you want peace and quiet amid the trees, you will not regret choosing Dancing Bear. As a thought, besides families, this home would work really well for two couples vacationing together - each couple would have their own room and bath...we hope to be back with friends. Pick a date now - you'll have a great time!
