About Pam Rumph

We live in upstate South Carolina, and Young Harris is the perfect place for a vacation home. We never tire of the beautiful and relatively short drive . The short distance allows us to enjoy the cabin ourselves on short notice and also enables us to keep everything in tip top shape.

Pam Rumph purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Pam Rumph chose Young Harris

David and I became familiar with this beautiful area when his sister and husband moved up from Amelia Island. In visiting with them, we felt a real connection with the area and began toying with the idea of purchasing our own place. In 2008, it became a reality, and we purchased Rocky Knob cabin from a local couple. We love our place and enjoy sharing its' "magic" with others.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is truly a wonderful place - clean, beautiful, warm, well appointed ...the list goes on. We completely enjoyed our visit and would like to have stayed longer. (December 27-30, 2005)

Great place to stay. Pam and Dave are very helpful and answered any questions we have. Their home is clean and in a quiet area. We had a great time visiting nearby towns and enjoying the sites and restaurants. We also visited nearby waterfalls and enjoyed the leaves changing. We will be back!

Ah! Relaxing, warm and comfy!

All the amenities you could possibly want, plus! Wonderful location for enjoying the Smoky Mountains whether you want to spend your time exploring the Smoky Mountains or simply taking in the splendor from the comfort of this relaxing, wonderful cabin. So much to enjoy from the wrap-around porch! We kept finding more and more fun things inside to enjoy. Even found an umbrella for taking a refreshing walk during the rain. We would absolutely recommend this wonderful, secluded getaway for any couple, family or group of friends. Pam and David respond immediately for anything. They know how to make you feel at home.

What a getaway wonder! We 4 girl cousins in our young 50's found this the perfect place for our first-ever getaway together. We enjoyed driving through the gorgeous Smoky Mountains and hiking a few trails on the sunny day. On the rainy day, we were perfectly happy in this warm and comfy cabin chatting, playing games and watching a movie. We kept the fire going for ambiance the whole time. What incredibly special memories we will share forever! This place made it possible!

This cabin is perfect. It’s beautiful, spotless, and perfectly located. We have been visiting this area for years. We always stay in the same cabin so I was anxious with the change but I could not have been more pleased. The only thing we missed with the change is a outside fire pit. We love enjoying a good fire while winding down our evening.

I will also advise new guest to enter in Rocky Knob DRIVE in your GPS. Our GPS gave us the option and we selected the Rocky Knob as indicted in the address. We found ourselves on an isolated mountain on the GA/NC border. We contacted the owners and they corrected our address error.

You will not be sorry with selecting this cabin is truly perfect.

Owner's Response: We so appreciate your taking the time to write such a gracious review about Rocky Knob. Yes, it is important to put everything in a GPS if available, as we too were turned around the first time we visited! I camped my whole life, and it would be great to have a fire pit, and I hope at some time in the future we can work in a spot on the lot for one! Thank you for staying!
