Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

You have found one of the BEST places in the NORTH GA MOUNTAINS! Tranquility Place will be even better in person. Our cabin is nestled in the woods on top of a gentle knoll with the mountains in the distance.

It is bordered by a couple of gentle ravines and a creek. We offer a wonderful flat approach (less than 2 miles from HWY 441), plentiful paved parking for 3-4 cars, much outdoor space for kids to play or grownups to enjoy the privacy of the wooded area. Inside, the kitchen is upscale and wonderfully stocked and can accommodate a large family.

We have a spacious family room with 2 living areas, a queen sleeper sofa, gas logs, a 50'' wall mounted flat screen TV with satellite TV/DVD and wireless internet. The all wood floors, tongue and groove heart pine walls and ceilings provide the extra warmth that only a mountain hideaway can provide. The bedrooms are so so spacious; the master offers a king bed and double bed. The queen bedroom has space for our electric inflatable queen bed.

Our furnishings are newer and nicer than most. We are offering you a stay in a very nice mountain home, not a rustic old cabin. We also have listing #100514 in Clayton on Screamer Mountain.

About The Owner

We are a family of 5 that have always loved the outdoors, especially the north Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains and Rabun County

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why The Owner chose Lakemont

There is no better place on earth to us than the mountains of north GA/Rabun Co. We will never have enough time to see all the waterfalls, visit all the trails, climb all the mountains, see all we can of the Chattooga River - but over the next so many years we will try. For us, Rabun County is so easy to get to from our home in northeast Atlanta. Once we are there, the worries of life in the city is so far away. We love the simplicity of life in Clayton but still enjoy the wonderful local restaurants and shops. We hope you will make it your vacation home with us too as much as you can!

What makes this cabin unique

Fabulous place to get away and refuel either as a couple, family, with friends, or alone. We offer most modern conveniences such as wireless wifi and satellite tv but also offer a most private setting to enjoy the surrounding natural beauty

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Tiger Ga to attend a chef's lunch at the Stonecreek vineyard. We were a group of 4 adults. We had such a fun relaxing time! Cabin is very clean, with cute mountain decor, beautiful wood walls and flooring throughout. Plenty of parking on a flat level driveway. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy conversation. Nice screened porch on back with a pretty view of the woods and with lots of fall colors to see! We did not see any wild life while there. I'm sure there must be deer, just didn't see them. Beds are very comfortable and there are plenty of linens.

Kitchen is great, super equipped and really spacious with a great table for 4 in the center of the kitchen. Cabin has Keurig and a coffee pot, but no coffee, tea or cocoa which we fortunately brought with us. That would be a nice addition!! Bring your toiletries too. There are two nice size bedrooms upstairs. The main bedroom has a king bed and a full or queen bed and the bathroom is part of the room with a partition screen, but no door to give you real privacy. Beautiful bath tub in the room, has a handle, but it is not connected to do a tub shower. The second bedroom has a full bathroom with tub/shower. So for 4 adults to take showers in morning was challenging. Nice big tv for watching football or movies. . We didn't hike from cabin as we had plans in town. We did see and hear neighbors so you are not secluded. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this beautiful cabin in the woods. Games, books and movies are in the cabinets for a great relaxing weekend if you don't want to leave! Betsy was great in sending info and directions. You will enjoy your stay if you book Tranquility place!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great comments! In the past, we have not routinely provided coffee but it is a great suggestion to have it for folks that arrive late and need it on the first morning. We will get some "backup" supplies ordered for our coffee stations. Also, sadly after several leaks from the back of the claw tub shower nozzle not being turned off correctly and flooding down through the ceiling to the lower level, we made the hard decision to disconnect it. It should not be hard to turn it completely off but guests and/or substitute cleaning staff have left it turned partially "on" causing a bad leak behind tub in the floor without person using tub even knowing water was running out behind the tub. Sorry it was tough for you all to share the one shower. Some folks are "tub" folks and some are "shower" folks. We understand that this can be an issue but decided the longterm well being of the cabin structure had to override the inconvenience of disconnecting the shower attachment in the claw tub. We do love that our cabin has 3 sinks and 3 toilets for multiple guests since we have a half bath as well. Please DO come again soon!! We love guests that LOVE Tranquility Place and the area as much as we do.

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the cabin on Tranquility!! The cabin & furnishings were very charming and warm. It was well stocked with towels, paper products and everything a kitchen would need. The back porch was wonderful for reading, relaxing and drinking a glass of wine. The location was extremely convenient to many hikes as well as some fabulous restaurants in Clayton. I would highly recommend this cabin. Thank you Betsy for a wonderful stay!!

Comfortable and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

First I want to thank Betsy for being able to accommodate my stay on such short notice (booked the afternoon before). The cabin is in a location convenient to many scenic locations in the area. Speaking of the cabin it was amazingly comfortable, clean, and welcoming. Spent my time hiking some beautiful trails nearby and by the fire at night. My only complaint is that it wasn't as secluded as I would have liked as the other cabins are pretty close by. Luckily no one else was staying at the surrounding cabins since I stayed in the middle of the week. All in all a great trip and awesome place to stay. Definitely a place that I would stay again if the opportunity arises.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the taking time to submit a nice review on Tranquility Place. So you will know for the future, our 2 neighbor cabins are never rented and rarely used by their owners. The cabin closest to ours visibly is owned by an elderly couple that we have only seen there 2 times since we bought the cabin in 2009. The cabin below us is owned by a couple that moved nearby for a larger home and only comes over periodically to check on things. For now, we have only 1 full time neighbor, whose home is not visible from the cabin. Please come again anytime. You will still get the same privacy on the weekends unless something changes with our neighbor owners.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I loved everything about the cabin. The location was perfect for us because we were visiting friends in Sky Valley. The cabin was so nice that we decided to stay instead of going to many attractions in the area. All was new and clean and the details added a comfty feeling. The only thing my husband complaint about was the shower head that was damaged, and I would've like to have some coffee for me in the morning. Other than that it was one of the best cabins we've stayed in. Thank you, we'll be back to visit the neighbors that live down below.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review! We are so glad you enjoyed the added touches at the cabin. We are on a well shared by 2 other cabins, thus the slow & low water pressure in the shower. Will have it checked out but had several plumbers tell us it's not an issue we can improve. We have both a Keurig and regular coffee maker at the cabin but will see about having some coffee supplied too. No one should go without coffee!! Please come again soon!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin! Betsy thought of everything you could possibly need, especially in the kitchen. A woman after my owner heart with plenty of linens for the bathroom. The cabin is very clean, spacious and cozy. We used it for a romantic week, but there's plenty of room for a family getaway. I especially loved to sit on the screen porch enjoying my coffee in the morning. We were just minutes away from Clayton and were within an hour to 90 minutes to lots of fun things to do including the Smokey Mountains. We went river rafting in South Carolina, zip lining in Georgia, horseback riding, jeep riding and a great train ride in the Smokey Mountains of North Carolina. I highly recommend this cabin and this area!

Betsy goes above and beyond with the setup of her cabin. It is clean, comfortable, and in a great location. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone. We are planning a trip back soon!
