Overview

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.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun staying in this house! The kitchen is great for a big group and the back porch swing is very relaxing. We loved being able to open the windows of the kitchen and hear/watch our children playing on the trail and stream down below.
