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.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

5-star Awesomeness

  • 5 of 5

Your cabin was so much better than we expected! Everyone was completely "Wowed" by a 150yo cabin that could be so warm and inviting. The mix of pioneer and contemporary strikes all the right notes. The toughest choices were which direction to explore; which bedroom to claim; and which porch to hangout on...lots of time spend strumming and chatting on both.

We spent a lot of time gathered in the kitchen and on the screened in porch. In fact, we were seated around the breakfast table when two black bears peeked in at us as they wandered across the embankment outside the back door. It was amazing to watch them pick they way through the trees and amble across the creek and up the other slope! Sitting quietly in the early morning also allowed us to view deer and wild turkey forage. What a fantastic way to restore and rejuvenate your soul!

The owner was great to work with: from reservations, questions and/or directions, Jay worked with us every inch of the way. Everything was clean and presentable upon arrival. I cannot adequately explain how wonderful the weekend was but "thank you"! It was a guys escape but I'm hoping to capture lightning in the bottle twice by returning with our women-folk!

Amazing Christmas Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for a Christmas Holiday to bring our family from all over the county to one place. It ended up as one of the most amazing Christmas Holidays we have had. The home was warm and welcoming. To our surprise, their was a Christmas tree which just topped off our expectations. The home was clean and well stocked with everything anyone would need to stay for any length of time. We would highly recommend this property. Thank you to the owner for sharing this property with our family.

Girls Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We LOVED the rustic charm mixed with the modern appliances. This home is decorated with the items that our parents or grandparents would have used growing up. Swinging on the back porch swing, listening to the running creek, talking about old times was awesome. We would STRONGLY recommend a 4WD type vehicle for all the hills and steep driveways. We go on girls trips (as often as we can) and stay at different locations to be able to explore new areas. Big Canoe is HUGE! Due to personal and medical setbacks we were unable to venture through the whole community. We are really looking forward to coming back. Jay, You are an awesome man. Thank you for your generosity!

Unique cabin, lovely views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this unique cabin. We had enough space for everyone to spread out, and our group of seven (four adults, three teens/pre-teens) was very comfortable. The layout was good for two families to share.

The cabin combines rustic charm and modern comforts. Great kitchen (the table is perfect for cards!) The kids had fun exploring the creek beside the house. We took a late-night trip to the ballfield for some stargazing - incredible! We even had a few days of flurries, which made the cabin even more beautiful!

The owner, Jay, was easy to reach, and prompt to reply. We would not hesitate to rent from him again.
