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 Northeast Mountains

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)

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

After leaving southern Ohio and moving to south Florida, we deeply appreciate any time we can "Escape to the Hills". Pam and David have a beautiful cabin to enjoy while away from home. There were a lot of "extra special touches" that we have not found with other rentals. This was our fifth trip to north Georgia and this cabin, by far, was our favorite. Thank you for opening your second home to us and making it possible to have a great week. ~ Tim and family.

Cleanest rental I've seen!

  • 5 of 5

Clean is the name of the game. It amazed me that a rental with so many reviews, so you know there have been MANY guests, could look basically brand new. Bathrooms, floors, ledges linens and everything looked like new. Situated right next to the main road of young Harris, bit far enough off of it there was no sound from the road, you're not far from many great places. Brasstown Bald was a short drive and really worth it, so was Helen. Fully stocked kitchen means you always have a place to eat dinner and not have to bring your own cooking utensils. The grill was great to have cause it was nice to sit out there and grill and eat on the outside table. Didn't see any bears while we were there, so that was good. David called us that first evening to make sure we found the cabin and everything was to our satisfaction. And it was! We want to come back and see the place in the winter, can't wait!

Peaceful serenity

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice and everything is absolutely wonderful! Rustic cabin and peaceful surroundings. We love grilling out at night and having our coffee in the morning on the deck. A beautiful getaway with anything and everything you could possibly need. We will definitely be back! The West family.

Owner's Response: We are so blessed to have return guests like you, and thank you for staying! You mention two of our favorite things to do at the cabin; relax on the deck in the morning and listen to the birds and cook out in the evenings. We look forward to having you back!

Exceeded all expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

We were originally coming to the area to see Helen, but since we also wanted a cabin ( not hotel ) and some privacy and nature, we booked the Rocky Knob Cabin. We are so happy we did! The Young Harris area is absolutely beautiful and not overran by tourism like Helen, but has everything you need. The cabin was gorgeous. Located privately, surrounded by trees and mountains. Pam and David prepared and decorated the cabin so beautiful that you can't help but feel cozy and relaxed. Everything you can think of is provided - literally everything!

Communication and all directions were great and reliable!

Thank you so much - we had a wonderful time and hope to come back soon !!

Anniversary/Retirement Trip 6.25 - 6.28.17

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Rocky Knob to celebrate our anniversary and my retirement. It was very peaceful and private. We truly loved all the special attention you pay to providing everything your guests need in the kitchen down to providing shampoo, lotion, soap and hair dryers. We literally only needed to bring food. Thank you for leaving us the candy and sparkling water. That was so thoughtful. The beds were very comfortable, we had excellent phone and wifi reception. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and listening to all the birds in the morning. We really appreciated the information provided about things to do and places to eat in the area surrounding Young Harris. We have been traveling to this area for years and this is one home we would highly recommend. Thank you so much for your hospitality, sending the special note to us after our departure and calling to make sure we were completely satisfied. Blessings to you both Pam and David,!
