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 Northwest High Country

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.

Spacious Mountain Cabin in Big Canoe
average rating of 4.7058825 based on 17 reviews

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!

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!
