About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life? Bring your family and friends to 'The Retreat', located only an hour north of Atlanta, tucked into the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Our new luxurious home (completed in 2008) is located in the beautiful Wildcat neighborhood of Big Canoe and offers something for everyone. You will enjoy year-round mountain ridge views from our comfortable 5 bedroom, 4 ½ bath home filled with custom and European antique furnishings.

The main level features a family room with vaulted ceiling and massive stone wood-burning fireplace opening to a large dining area furnished with a 9-foot farm table which seats 10 ... perfect for large gatherings. The fully equipped kitchen features granite countertops, custom knotted-cherry cabinets, kitchen-aid appliances and a breakfast bar for extra seating or just visiting with the cook. Relax in Amish rockers on the screened porch and enjoy the gas fireplace, 40” HDTV, or the scenic mountain views. Just off the porch, the upper deck offers a large gas grill and additional dining area. The master bedroom suite is furnished with a four-poster king bed, sitting area, walk-in closet and dressing area with built-ins and window seat. Treat yourself to a relaxing bath in the air-soft soaking tub or separate tiled rain shower.

The lower level offers a second family room furnished with a leather sectional sofa, chairs, and a 52” HDTV, DVD player, and Wii. A wet bar and pool room featuring a regulation pool table complete the entertainment area. A second master suite with a canopy king bed, sitting area, and separate bath with tiled shower make this a perfect choice for couples sharing the home. Two other bedrooms (each sleeps 4) with bunk or trundle beds connected by a double-vanity Jack and Jill bath provide additional sleeping accommodations. A large deck off the lower level family room provides a quiet retreat for reading a book or a nap.

Big Canoe - great home!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Big Canoe for a very long time and I have rented numerous properties. This home is beautiful, spacious, clean and just perfect for a large group! My family is very big and we had plenty of room.

The owner was wonderful to work with and handled everything for us. Great person!

WOWS retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house was a fantastic place for our ladies retreat... we are called WOWS. We arrived to find the house so spacious with great accommodations for each of us. We had women ages 14 - 70 and we stayed at the cabin the entire time we rented it. We found it to be so relaxing and big enough that we have movies going on downstairs and games at the kitchen table and other just enjoying the screened in porch and deck. The kitchen was perfectly stocked for us to prepare meals and serving meals. The main level was perfect for everyone to have a comfortable place to sit during our Bible study time.

I would recommend to anyone looking for a place in this area to rent this place.

A Fantastic Spring Break at the Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the beautiful Retreat was relaxing and serene!

The accommodations were fantastic! The home is roomy, comfortable and each room is so pretty. Big Canoe is a fun place to visit with grandkids, teenage kids and the adult kids! It truly was a fantastic Spring Break. I'm so happy we found The Retreat and the Milburns on VRBO.
