About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 7 adults & 4 kids)

Located an hour north of Atlanta in the gated mountain community of Big Canoe, this one-of-a-kind rustic log cabin is truly unlike anything you've ever seen.

The cabin was originally built in Virginia in the mid-1800s and features hand-hewn chestnut logs 26 feet long and over 20 inches wide. In the spring of 2005, the original structure was carefully dismantled, and the logs were tagged and shipped to their new home in north Georgia. Over the next two years the cabin was re-assembled, and a new wing was added on the rear to house a large kitchen and dining area.

A stacked-stone fireplace soaring over 20 feet high greets you as you walk through the front door. Overlooking the main room is a loft bedroom (plus a full bath with a clawfoot tub). Kids will love the bunk room on the main floor that features beds hand-made from reclaimed barn timbers.

As you walk from the main cabin on your way to the kitchen, you'll pass by an oversized and inviting window seat that's perfect for an afternoon nap. The flooring and walls in this cozy room are also treasures from the original Virginia cabin. Overhead, timbers and ceiling boards from a second hundred-year-old cabin add to your journey back in time.

Upon entering the kitchen, you'll find all the amenities and conveniences of a contemporary suburban home, with accents such as granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. But there are still reminders of days gone by. The farmhouse table was fashioned from decades-old barn wood and sections of logs that were unused in the cabin re-construction process. Overhead, exposed rafters are yet more remnants from an early settler's cabin. A large screen porch off the kitchen offers you a great place to relax. The custom-built swing is seven feet long and literally large enough to sleep on, flanked by a one-of-a-kind outdoor recliner that affords you a great view of the creek below.

With two more bedrooms and a full bath downstairs, you'll have ample accommodations for up to eight or more.

Awesome stay!

Great overnight location from the city. Awesome hiking trails with water falls. Restaurant located within the gated community was an added bonus. We will definitely be back!

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I planned to visit Gibbs Garden and see the Appalachian Trail. This cabin was the perfect location for both destinations. The Big Canoe community had so much to offer also. Great hiking trails!. The cabin was a wonderful feature that I would recommend to anyone.

Mountain memory-maker

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional hosts allowed us a peek into the past (with all the amenities of the 21st century). Took a weekend to slow down after the holidays and were blessed to share it with friends in this delightful cabin. We spent most of our time either curled up in the window seat or warming in front of the log fireplace. The flow of old cabin into new addition is nearly seamless. We spent hours appreciating the history of the original structure and speculating on how different life was "in the day." It was a terrific way to stage our New Year!

The cabin is the perfect getaway for a girls weekend. Rustic meets modern in this adorable place.

You truly do get to experience the great outdoors while staying. Convienient for hiking and site seeing. The only downside is if you're not used to the mountainous roads, you might get a little overwhelmed with the steep/windy drive up and down. But overall, everything exceeded my expectation!!

Unique Experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend in this 150 year old restored cabin and it became the destination. Even though we had every intention of exploring the area, we stayed put inside and near our cabin. Exploring the woods that ran along the stream, tracing the water back until we reached the waterfall, provided our outdoor adventure. Thank you for sharing your unique vision through the cabin and the antiques that filled every corner.
