About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

The house has an open floor plan to accommodate a large group... kitchen is open to the family room with an over-sized island that sits 5 with additional seating in separate dining room and screened-in porch. Our typical guests consists of family reunions, wedding parties, ladies church groups, and Young Life groups because it is so roomy and sleeps so many. The bunk room sleeps six kids (single bunk and a full size bunk), and there is also a queen bed room and a pull out sofa downstairs. On the main level the master has a king and there is another queen bedroom. There is even a carpeted loft area with queen sized bed and plenty of room for sleeping bags. Perfect for a large group.

Also downstairs we recently replaced an old ping pong table with an air hockey table that the kids enjoy. They can also watch their own shows in the lower level TV area.

The main level is cozy and features a giant kitchen and huge dining room (which also makes for a great game table for the whole clan). The screened porch and back deck offer wonderful mountain views and much needed quiet, or cozy up to the fireplace and watch a DVD. You'll find relaxation comes naturally in our home.

About Donna Murphy

Our family has lived in north Atlanta since we were married in 1984. We love Atlanta, but we love to get away, also. In 2005, we found this fantastic cabin in nearby Big Canoe. We are an active family and our kids are very involved in sports and other extracurricular activities which makes it tough to enjoy this home as much as we'd like.

Donna Murphy purchased this house in 2005

Why Donna Murphy chose Northwest High Country

We think of our Big Canoe home as the perfect getaway when we don't have time to drive to the coast. It's just 40 minutes from our home, but when we are here we feel like we're a million miles from our lives, especially when we see the deer, wild turkey and even occasional black bear that roam freely. The golf course is outstanding and offers lots of interesting holes and vistas. The new clubhouse is a great place for happy hour or dinner. Kids love the hiking trails, beach, swimming pool and play fields. But most of all we love the quiet beauty of the mountains.

What makes this house unique

Big Canoe is one of North Georgia's finest resort communities. There is so much to do inside the gates, but you are also close to lots of other attractions. We love taking the hour drive to the Ocoee River and rafting (half day or full day). Even closer are Anna Ruby Falls, the outlet mall in Dawsonville, the Kangaroo ranch, and many other destinations. Don't forget to hike the trails in Big Canoe while you're here, and visit the rock water slide near the beach.

Great quiet location

House is huge and very nicely decorated. Big kitchen and plenty of livable and sleeping space. The guards at the gate were so very helpful. If you want quiet and relaxation or a great family getaway you should consider staying here.

The photos did not do it justice. What a beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful property and setting. Everything was up to date and comfortable. It worked perfectly for my family and friends that were in town for our wedding weekend. The property owner was always fast to respond and very helpful. It was a huge stress relief to have everyone comfortable. The layout was open and made for a great social setting. A solid 5 stars.

Perfect for our first extended family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for my family! The cabin is beautiful and more spacious than my family expected. The littles were extatic to find the bunk room.

The Ezra spaces, dining rooms and balcony allowed hide away spots for the teens.

The cooks were amazed to find such a well designed and equipped kitchen.

IAnd oh the fun things in the area!

Everyone is ready to come back next year!

Perfect for our family of 14!!

  • 4 of 5

The size of this home was perfect to accommodate the needs of 7 adults and 7 children all under the Age of 10. The kitchen was fully stocked and the rooms were comfortable and clean. As promised the swimming activities were a perfect fit for the variety of aged children and adults that we had....paddle boards, kyacks, canoes, rock slide, zero entry pool, beach areas and inflatables. ( $10/day per person extra) We also took several hikes that were most enjoyable! It was a great time for our family!!
