With 5 TV's and one DVR unit, everyone can find their time to relax with their private choice on 'the tube'.

About Pam

Bob and Pam are retired baby boomers from West Virginia who wanted a bit of the mountain memories to be close at hand. We built our mountain cabin to 'return to our roots' and loved it so much we built our retirement home in the nearby mountain town of Jasper. We are close by for any emergencies, or for personal tips and recommendations. We are empty nesters, and with our only grandchild on the west coast, we have had to satisfy ourselves with lovin' our 2 papillons, Higgins and Moby (a rescue). They are much better looking than we are, so we have posted their picture here!

We have furnished and decorated our cabin as if it were our full time home. We know you will love it as much as we do. Come see!

Pam purchased this cabin in 2005

What makes this cabin unique

We love bird watching from the front porch, feeding the deer, and grilling to the beautiful sunsets. Quiet times on the back porch with our favorite beverage, the mountain views and and a dog in our lap is almost as great as sharing our mountain cabin with friends and family.

Relaxing Weekend @ My Back Porch

  • 5 of 5

Went to My Back Porch for a long weekend with two other couples. We had a great weekend!

The house was very comfortable - although the beds were a little on the firm side for us. We had a fire going most of the time, and it was so nice that the owners provided the (dry) wood! Thank you owners! We enjoyed watching the birds feed on the various feeders out in the yard. And the view was awesome!

All six of us would definitely recommend My Back Porch to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend retreat. :)

We decided to take a quick getaway to Blue Ridge and were fortunate enough to get this cabin! It completely exceeded all expectations. We LOVED it. Both kids had their own bedroom & bathroom space and they loved the pool table and hot tub! Thanks so much for the great weekend!

A 4th time, Yes!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at My Back Porch for three visits in the month of January. Our weather varied from ice on the steps to sunny weather, 70 degrees, with windows open and lots of back porch sitting. We have enjoyed each visit equally. The cabin is cozy, charming, comfortable, and complete!

Gorgeous Cabin and area!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week with our 4 kids and was a fun getaway! Especially for not having a vacation in a very long time! The cabin is spacious and we could all fit together by the fireplace or all be separate on the 3 different floors. We had a fire every night and played boardgames. It was cold towards the end of our week, and their is a sufficient supply of blankets and comfy pillows. We food shopped twice and the Kitchen had all the necessary essentials and that helped a lot! The hot tub was enjoyed nightly whether it rained, snowed or was freezing out. It snowed on New Years Eve so the kids saw snow for the first time! We only saw one deer, so hoping to see more next time. The neighbor has a rooster so you will enjoy hearing it in the morning, lol. The top floor, master bathroom's toilet broke two days before leaving, so it was very cold running up and downstairs the last two days. Pam replied immediately, but no one to fix due to Holiday. Be careful on the dirt/gravel road travelling to Cabin, have a good vehicle, very narrow, potholes and the previous people before us ran off the road. Couple neighbors drive it fast, so be cautious. We luved the neighbors behind the home with all their wonderful fireworks. Enjoyed meeting Charlie too. Close to many Activities. Go to the Local Chamber they will give you updated info on events in the area. We went to downtown BlueRidge, Blairsville, Ellijay and a few of the parks. Lots of waterfalls and hiking. We plan to visit the Blue Ridge Area again and Explore more.

Owner's Response: Sue, it sounds like you got just what you came for!! -----quiet relaxation on the screened porch, complete with the hot cup of coffee or chocolate from the welcome pack!
