Log Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, Loft, Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

This 3 bedroom, 3 bath cabin has it all. It is located on a secluded wooded lot with excellent views and sounds of a fast moving stream just out your back door. Inside it is beautifully appointed with all the modern amenities of home. Whether in the loft, out on the large screened in porch or down at the fire pit by the stream, you will find great locations to curl up with your favorite book or just hang out with family and friends. In the lower level there is chess, checkers, fooze ball and many board games available. This area is also equipped with a 5.1 home theatre sound system for a great movie on DVD. There are currently over 200 Academy Award Movies onsite for your enjoyment.

Always enjoyable to all is the 6 person Jacuzzi hot tub that overlooks the stream. The cabin is decorated with a very cozy, yet rustic decor. There are quilts, furry blankets a lot of black bear paraphernalia. Really cute and fun! Firewood provided for fire pit, and fireplace.

There is also a BRAND NEW PLAYGROUND AND FRONT PORCH!!!! The playground is incredible: swings, slide, playhouse, etc. Still tucked away in a wooded environment.

About Christy Wolfe

We live in Cumming, GA and have two young young children ages 10 and 8. My husband is a custom home builder and has made sure this cabin is a cut above the rest! I am also a very meticulous house owner and have made sure the house is easy to use, organized, and well equipped.

Christy Wolfe purchased this cabin in 2006

What makes this cabin unique

I know of no other cabin that has multiple playgrounds....and a GREAT one at that! Kids love it!

Amazing family vacation! House was in the perfect location. Close to apple orchard but hidden in the woods for your own oasis. Creek was so much fun. Great place for kids. No one wanted to leave !

Wonderful family memories made here!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for 5 years now and LOVE this cabin. It's private and well equipped, with a play set for the younger kids and a small "river" we enjoy splashing around in. Our kids range in age from 11 to 6 and this cabin has something for everyone. The owners and property manager are extremely helpful, quick to respond if warranted and always pleasant. We were halfway home this year when our granddaughter remembered she forgot her baby doll she had wrapped in one of the quilts. We called the property manager, explained what happened and they had the doll in the mail that day! What great, personalized service!! We have made many wonderful memories here and look forward to coming back every year.

Amazing location on a trout stream!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is special! It was cozy yet very spacious. Very clean and very organized! We couldn't have hand picked a better location. Our boys caught trout right out the front door! The stream was shallow enough for us not to worry about their safety.

We took our family tubing down the Coosawattee River using the Coosawattee Tubing Company. It was 15 min from the cabin. They were organized and very professional. We do not recommend using the Cartecay Tubing Company (2 mi. away). It was very unorganized, dirty, and unprofessional. Not to mention the Cartecay River has a very scary 25 ft rapid toward the end that children should NOT be allowed on.

Better than expected!

  • 4 of 5

If I lie and say we had a terrible time, maybe we can keep this place all to ourselves?! Seriously though, we had a fantastic time! SO many little things to mention, I don't even know where to start! The owners have honestly cared for this home well, and thought of everything. Our stay was comfortable, relaxing, and FUN! We spent nearly all our time down at the creek, and our boys aged 11 and 9 never wanted to leave.

Aside from the creek, LOVE the creek, my favorite things were: labels on the shelves, blackout curtains, accessible vacuum cleaner, sound machines in bedrooms, downstairs reclining couch, gas oven, high-end kitchen appliances, easy drive no 4wd needed, close to grocery and tourist spots, very private property, nice large bedrooms. Overall, the best part was just sitting on the rocks or on the balcony and listening to the water.

The only negative things I can speak of is the shower in the master bath is really small, so I preferred to shower on the main floor instead (my husband didn't care either way, I just hate bumping my elbows). Also, the second time someone took a shower on the bottom floor, the water pump alarm went off. Long story short, it turned itself off a few hours later and everything was fine, but we decided to not use the downstairs bathroom at all after that. Had we been more than 4 people staying at the house, that might have been a bigger annoyance, but it didn't inconvenience us much. We also found the dining room chairs to be very uncomfortable. The wood work is beautiful, but we hated sitting in them. Thankfully, the weather was gorgeous so we were able to eat on the screened patio instead.

However, those things are not enough to stop me from coming back again! I can't wait to come here again one day, only this time we will stay longer - 4 nights wasn't nearly enough! Thank you so much for sharing your home with our family!

As always, fantastic!

Been to this cabin probably 6 times over the last 10 years. There is nothing lacking at this place, and the privacy is unmatched.

Perfect for summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

After looking at several properties, we decided to stay at Peaceful Waters. And let me tell you, I'm glad we did! The description and photos of the property were spot on, and we were blown away by how beautiful and comfortable this cabin was. Our family had a wonderful time swimming in the creek, relaxing in the hot tub, hanging out by the fire pit, and exploring the area. Our only complaint was that we had to leave! It is very clear that the owners have put a lot of time and effort into making this into a true vacation home, and we look forward to hopefully coming back in the future!
