About Donna Murphy

We are native to the North Atlanta area and were looking for a place that would provide a great get away but a short commute from where we live. In 2005, we found this fantastic cabin in nearby Big Canoe that exceeded all of our expectations.

Donna Murphy purchased this house in 2005

Why Donna Murphy chose Jasper

Our house is located within the gates of Big Canoe at a high enough elevation for a great mountain view but still convenient to all of the amenities that the community and surrounding area have to offer. 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 many other local attractions. We enjoy rafting on the Ocoee River, about an hour drive with half day or full day trips. Even closer are Anna Ruby Falls, the outlet mall in Dawsonville, winery tours, 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.

It was clean and nice. Plenty room for the family. Especially liked the carport since it was raining the day we left.

The cabin was not too difficult to reach and was spacious enough to accommodate my party

  • 3 of 5

The layout was very functional and allowed guests to gather or separate easily.

Pros: The rental was affordable, considering the size of the property. The kids loved the basement area, and used it as an escape from the adults. The kitchen offered a fabulous space for cooking, with multiple cooks being able to assist. The screened in porch and deck (with gas grill) were great extensions of the home. The a/c worked superbly well at cooling all areas in the home. The wifi was great.

Cons: The unit was still being cleaned when we arrived (after check-in time). As a courtesy, It would have been nice to have received a call from the owner, but that did not happen. To say the least, it was embarrassing for my family to have arrived and been greeted by the cleaner (who was nice and apologetic, though the apology was not hers to make) with areas still needing to be cleaned and laundry in progress. The property was advertised with a futon and a queen bed in the loft bedroom. However, the futon had been removed. The property description should be accurate to reflect what is actually available. A deep cleaning is needed to remove cobwebs from the ceiling fans on the interior, the carpet on the lower level needs to be shampooed, and some of the bed linens are a bit worn.

My 3-star rating largely reflects a lacking in customer service on the day of arrival.

Large cabin, lots of space

  • 3 of 5

Great cabin for large family, nice big porch. Kitchen has everything you need, plenty of linens, nice comfortable beds, however, carpet is horrible and definitely needs pest control.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at our cabin and appreciate the feedback, good and not so good. Situated in the North Georgia mountains, it can be a challenge to keep the pests away. I will let our monthly pest control service know that you were not pleased with their service. Perhaps the rainy weather has contributed to the problem this year. I will also make arrangements to have the carpets cleaned. They are fairly new but apparently have gotten dirty with regular use from our guests. Again, thanks for your comments. These items will be addressed immediately. Best, Donna

Comfortable, carefully appointed vacation home in a remarkable community with lots of amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay for a last minute Spring Break trip. Donna & Pat were very accommodating and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at their Big Canoe home. Despite the chilly temps, we had a wonderfully relaxing time. Dinner at the Clubhouse was delicious and not having to cook was a great way to start our vacation! Although having a fully equipped kitchen made it super easy to cover meals at the house. The fireplace, with stockpile of wood, allowed us to be cozy and relaxed. The beds are vey comfortable and linen svc provided nice, fluffy towels.

Finding the house for the first time is an adventure, but be sure to follow their arrival instructions/advice carefully and you should be fine.

We enjoyed the fitness center and indoor pool, and were able to take advantage of some of the hiking trails, too. Will have to come back in a warmer season to enjoy the lakes, golf and other outdoor activities!

Thanks so much for sharing your home!
