Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in a beautiful area. The creek is incredibly close, and I would love to stay here in warmer temps to be able to sleep with the window open to hear the creek through the night!

The kitchen is well equipped- we had every tool we needed to fix each of our meals. Our group was four people and seating for a movie in the living room was tight. I had read this in other reviews and was prepared. For our group, we got nice and close on the couch for movies. :) It is definitely not a negative, but something that might be nice to know for other groups.

Jennifer called twice to check in. I really appreciated this. This was my first experience booking and handling anything through VRBO. Others in our group said they've stayed in places and the owner has never contacted them. All members of our group were impressed by her communication throughout our trip.

We hiked downstream to the waterfall. It's a short walk right past the cabin downstream. Worth the walk! We also drove into Blue Ridge, GA twice. We visited Mercier Orchards and their small town shops. Worth the visit!

Thank you, Jennifer, for sharing your cabin with us. Being secluded from the outside world in a beautiful spot was just what my group needed!

Quaint cabin

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was cute and met our needs. Not quite enough living space in the living room for our family of 5 and road to get into the cabin needs to be grated again. Liked the fireplace and the cabin has a lot of cute details.

Owner's Response: I’m very confused about the comments regarding our living room & I don’t understand why our furniture wouldn’t have accommodated these particular guests comfortably... There is a large full size sofa & 2 chairs so there is certainly enough seating. All rooms are fully pictured in our listing photos showing arrangements & furniture. We also have another sofa fireside in the adjoining room. Re road: Maintaining mountain gravel roads are always ongoing. I appreciate the thoughts about the road. I will have our caretaker look @ it & of course will be taken care of if needed as always.

Clean and quaint.

Wonderful place. The creek is right there. Best part of vacation sitting after dinner by the fire enjoying peace and nature. It was super clean and was well stocked.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is for anyone wanting to get away from the world! If you want to stay in touch, the wi-fi and satellite tv were excellent but there is no cell phone service. There is a land-line for emergencies! I had considered driving my Ford Flex but changed my mind at last minute and drove our 4WD truck and so glad I did.

The little creek beside the cabin was the selling point for me when renting this cabin from VRBO and I was not disappointed! We bought firewood from home and really enjoyed that in the early evening with the sound of the water flowing over the rocks. There is a beautiful waterfall downstream that really completed my stay, because I was going to find a waterfall somewhere before I left the mountains. We had hoped the leaves had turned but for some reason most everything was still green in mid October this year. We had planned to at least get out one day and drive around but we ended up staying in the whole 4 day trip!

The cabin was very comfortable and there wasn't anything I needed that wasn't already there. Jennifer called to make sure we had arrived and was very helpful when at first the TV's were not working, but that soon was resolved by merely "re-booting"! The only thing that was missing according to my husband was a recliner! I'd gladly return for another mountain get-away!

Serene, Peaceful Cabin

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to visit and relax. The creek running alongside the cabin provides a calming environment. The cabin was clean and well kept. Our family had a great time staying here. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is that although it was right next to a creek, it took a bit of a drive to have access to the surrounding lakes. This is perfect for people looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your Lovely review! :). Our Mystic Creek Cabin is both Very Peaceful & Very Private. Our creek front location is Dreamy! We are conveniently located between 2 nearby lakes: Lake Appalachia & Lake Hiawassee. As advertised, Mystic Creek Cabin is Creek Front, not lake front. Beautiful mountains surround these 2 area lakes, so of course you will need to drive there. It's only a short Beautiful Scenic drive just a few minutes either way. We provide driving direction inside our welcome book for our guests convenience. You can even rent a boat @ Lake Hiawassee @ the Mountain View Marina. Mystic Creek Cabin's location is THE perfect base to explore & enjoy ALL the tri-state area has to offer!! :)
