About the Property

Two baths~MBR w/ jacuzzi bath & sleeps 7 Maximum # of guests: 7

Cozy up in this mountain view log cabin located at road's end. Comfortable, secluded ~ it's a real getaway from it all! If mountain hiking is your thing, you're going to love it here! Cabin sits on the edge of the Chattahoochee National Forest, and just 3/10th mile from the Appalachian Trail. GREAT hiking! Work desk with printer, bring laptop. Large L-shaped deck, screened back porch, open front porch, every area with outdoor furniture. Birdwatcher heaven, hummingbirds, occasional deer passing thru, turkey familes spotted, Hightower Mountain scenery from back porch and deck. Attractive furnishings thoughout, board games, DVD and VCR tapes, Direct TV channels, gas grill on deck for cookouts under the stars. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything needed to make a meal and clean up. The dining table seats six. The living room area has a comfortable leather couch, matching leather chair with footstool and a double recliner. A 32-inch television with HD satellite service and two VCR/DVD players. The large master bedroom has a king-sized, very comfortable bed, the master bath has a jacuzzi, a washer and dryer. Upstairs in the large, L-shaped loft ~ one single bed, futon that sleeps 2 and a full sized bed that sleeps 2. A small bath with shower is also in the loft area. FREE FOR OUR GUESTS ~ Internet service and long distance phone service. Free! : DSL Wireless Internet service is provided at Snuffy's Shack free of charge! Please take your laptop for access. The upstaris loft has a skylight, a ceiling fan and there's a door leading a deck. We recommend that children are cautioned and warned about the deck. As new owners in 2007, we replaced the railing because it was not up to code, but children do like to climb and should be watched carefully. The shed has an interesting story re:
the name "Head". The family that owned the cabin before us had that last name and so they labeled the doors and made it look like an outhouse. We thought it was cool enough to keep that way, in fact, we loved it!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Hello! My name is Gwen Morris. My husband, Richard is retired from a 26 year Air Force career and we are both retired from Civil Service. We live in Middle Georgia. I am originally from Ft. Gaines GA and Albany GA. Richard is originally from San Antonio TX and Naples FL. We have two daughters, six grandchildren and one great-grandchild. We love Snuffy's Shack and we hope our guests love it too!

Why the Owner Chose Hiawassee, GA, USA:
Of course, the first thing we noticed was the mountain scenery, it was spectacular the day we came to look at the property. When we stepped into the living room area, it was WOW all over again because the flooring, walls and ceilings are heart of pine. The kitchen is unique with wood cabinet doors made of chicken screen wire. Arriving at the cabin, we entered thru the front porch. After touring the cabin, we stepped outside to a screened in back porch....and a very large deck attached. The master bath has a Jacuzzi. The L-shaped loft upstairs has a small deck attached. This cabin is so unique and beautiful and our family loves coming here to relax. It's the best place in the world to be!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Free unlimited long distance phone calls to the USA only. Free Windstream DSL Internet service, DIRECT TV for your entertainment and family board games. Porch sitting on the screened back porch is a favorite activity for most guests, who enjoy watching the clouds form animals, angels and other forms around the mountain. Beyond the screened porch, there is a large deck equipped with a gas grill, an outdoor table with four chairs, a hammock and deck furniture. It's a perfect place for guests to gather as a family to have a sunset cookout.
