About Derek & Kelly Shepard
We just bought this cabin in November and plan to use it to escape the heat in Florida and hike, bike and relax in the mountains. My wife and I are originally from the Northeast and the mountains of N. GA help remind us of home.
Derek & Kelly Shepard purchased this Cabin in 2017
Why Derek & Kelly Shepard chose Big Canoe
We enjoy vacationing in Big Canoe and waited to buy the right cabin. We love the huge windows and the trees that surround the back decks. Our cabin is close to the main gate and other amenities such as golf, hiking, swimming, tennis and restaurants. We are located on a short and quiet road with distant mountain views.

We came up at the last
Minute for Easter and had a great time. The cabin is just as pictured. We cooked both nights and had everything we needed. The owner was quick to respond to any questions we had. Most importantly is that is was really clean. That’s super important to us. Would definitely rent again. Thanks!
Derek, thank you for allowing our family to use your wonderful rental. Owner was very responsive throughout the entire stay. This cabin is perfect for a small group or a large group. Big Canoe is a wonderful place with many things to do like hiking, jeep trails, fitness center, etc.....If you are looking for a home in big canoe look no further. Great place to bring your pets also.
Very Nice Cabin
Great home in a great location. Highly recommended.
Lovely cabin. Secluded, quiet, nicely furnished/decorated. Perfect for getting away.
Loved everything about it. My puppy was right at home as well. Didn’t want to leave to come back to the real world. Perfect relaxing weekend and nice easy hiking around big canoe.
I needed a place to go while some remodeling was being done on my home. This cabin was such a needed break. I only used one bedroom, the master, and the bed was very comfortable. I built may fires and that was fabulous. The upstairs loft and bedroom is very spacious, as well as the terrace level room with the bunk beds. All with adequate bathrooms, a plus! It was perfect for me and my two fur babies. Thank you so much for sharing your place!
Wonderful New Years stay!
We had a wonderful stay at the Tailblazer cabin, ringing in the New Year with our group of 8 (4 adults, 4 kids, and fur baby)! Derek was fantastic with communication, responding to all questions in record time. The cabin was cozy, comfortable, very clean, and well stocked with games, complimentary snacks/coffee, cozy blankets, and fire building supplies. We spent our time watching football, cooking, playing games and enjoying the fireplace. The kids stayed in the terrace level bunk room and enjoyed having their own space for hanging out and hooking up the Wii game that we brought. We loved being able to have our dog with us and he had a blast at the Big Canoe dog park. The only negative we encountered was the temperature on the terrace level. We found only 1 heat vent in the laundry room which didn’t keep that level warm enough for our kids liking. That said, we did visit during a cold snap when the temperatures got down into the low 20’s. Other than that, it was a 5 Star visit and we would not hesitate to return. If we visit again during the winter, perhaps a safe, extra heater for the terrace level would do the trick? Thanks Derek for sharing your fantastic home with us!! We hope to return again when we can take advantage of all the wonderful Big Canoe amenities. If you’ve never been to Big Canoe, it’s fantastic!!!
Thanks for your feedback Amy. We're glad you enjoyed yourself. I hear you about the terrace level bedroom. While there is a floor vent in the bedroom we will invest in a oil heater for future guests. BTW- we'll have swim club passes for the summer if you plan to return :)
