About D. Bell

We bought this cabin when we were a family of four for weekend getaways. When we added our puppy to our family he loved it too so we opened our rentals to include small dogs.

D. Bell purchased this cabin in 2006

Why D. Bell chose Northwest High Country

We choose this cabin because of the view from the decks and the bed in the master bedroom. It is a 90 minute drive from Atlanta and easy for Florida visitors to get to.

What makes this cabin unique

The five minute drive to Morganton beach is great, and the clear skies while relaxing in the hot tub awesome.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing week! we couldnt have asked for a better pacle to share our honeymoon! we enjoyed the cozy fireplaces, a nice game of scrabble and a couple of movies! Window shopping downtown was an adventure, we did not expect the Christmas crowds. we highly recommend the Blue Ridge Brewery for a nice meal and a delicious pumpkin ale. we also took a short hike over the suspension bridge over the Toccoa. It was relaxing, of course we couldnt miss Merciers orchards. I just ate a piece of applie pie for breakfast- yum!

Beautiful Cabin in the Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and comfortable. It is warm and inviting. We loved the balconies, especially the one with the fireplace. The owners were very kind and helpful, providing all needed information.

We would have enjoyed having updated information about the area, including things to do. Also, the stairs upstairs are a tad precarious- they are all different widths and I kept banging the back of my ankle. Also, the rail is not very useful- there is nothing to grab onto.

The house is beautiful and the location is as well. I believe the porches were our favorite places!

  • 4 of 5

The furniture is really nice and we enjoyed our stay.

Just a few things that we did notice / encounter:

· The kitchen really needs better and more pots, pans and cookware. Families staying for a week like we did typically cook a few times and from making pancakes and bacon at breakfast to cooking vegetables for dinner we found that we were having to make do with pots / pans that were not what you would normally use.

· There was a very low supply of toilet tissue. Mid-week we had to go and buy some.

· The Bathroom linens, specifically the washcloths in the downstairs bathroom need to be replaced. We don’t like using a washcloth on vacation that at home would have become a garage rag.

· The stairs going up to the master bedroom are beautiful and unique, but they are also difficult and dangerous. We felt that there needed to be treads on them due to them being slick and uneven in depth. The individual steps that are more shallow than the others caused us to scrape our heels / lower calves and stumble multiple times.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response and we are glad you had an enjoyable stay. We'll look at putting some non-slip treads in the stairs, problem is they may take away from the overall uniqueness of the stairs. We have new pots and pans on order, so thanks for bringing that to our attention. As far as toilet tissue and paper towels, we only ever provide a starter set. Anyway, appreciate your comments.
