About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6) with 22 acres for maximum privacy

I AM BOOKED THROUGH JAN 2nd 2017. I WILL NOT ANSWER FUTURE INQUIRES> NOW HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE! This Cabin in the North Georgia Mountains is Located on a Beautifully Wide, Easily Accessible part of the Toccoa River. The Cabin is Cedar on the outside and Pine on the inside, giving you the True Uniqueness of the 'Cabin Experience'. The cabin can sleep up to 6 people. The downstairs bedroom has a KING bed and the upstairs Loft has 2 twin beds. It also has its own Private Balcony overlooking the Pond. Downstairs, there are two couches. There is also a rocking chair and recliner, all in front of a real wood burning stone fireplace.

The Front Porch overlooks the Pasture area and the Back Porch faces the River that is just steps away There is a picnic table on the back porch and our swing is very unique in that it is twin size ie: wider and longer than other swings. Firewood is provided for the fireplace and there is an outdoor Fire Ring for summer Marshmallow roasts.I charge a very nominal rate of $5/night for firewood.

The Kitchen is well equipped, down to the spices. You do have to bring your own Linens (sheets, pillowcases and towels)and leave the cabin Clean. I am up frequently to see that your accommodations are in perfect condition.

There is also a laundry area with full size washer and dryer. The office area has a desk, phone, fax/copier machine. Internet service is with WIFI DSL. We also have a network extender which allows most cell phones to work in the cabin.
We have 2 flat screen TVs with Direct TV Satellite service and the one in the living room has a DVR box, allowing you to record two programs and watch another.

Located on more than 20 acres, the grounds are beautifully maintained with plantings that attract birds and butterflies. We keep cans of feed for the birds, deer, and fish and ask that our guests keep the critters fed. It is not uncommon to wake up and find a pasture full of deer!
You can walk over creeks, pan for gold, and picnic at the river or relax on the swing by the catfish pond under a gazebo, roofed with honeysuckle. Feed the Trout and Catfish and be amazed at their feeding frenzy. The catfish pond is catch and release, the trout pond is feed only. But you can fly fish or fish from the bank of the river for more than 1200'. This is a section of the river that is open year round so you can keep all you catch. You do not need a fishing license or trout stamp when fishing from private property. There is also a 'Beach' area where even small children can splash and play in the river. Bring a float and you can float from the bridge down to the cabin.

While the mountain has its own trails, you can also hike the Appalachian or Benton McKaye trail or walk to close by waterfalls. Within a 30 minute drive you can visit Lake Winfield Scott, Dockery Lake, Lake Nottely in Blairsville, or Lake Blue Ridge.

The pasture areas will contain your pets if they have never been off leash . Bring your Frisbees or tennis balls and rackets. There is a barn within the fenced area and we offer this accommodation for people who want to bring their own horses.There are hours of riding trails right from the cabin.

There is a firm 3 night minimum. $140 for up to 3 persons, $10 for each additional person. If your reservation is for 4 or more nights, the rate is $130/night. $7/pet, $10/ horse. I do have to charge 7% sales tax to the state and Fannin County has an additional 5% lodging tax. So, 12% is added to your cost. Please see my web site for more information and lots of pictures. NO ONLINE BOOKINGS< NO CREDIT CARDS< NO LAST MINUTE RESERVATIONS.
I do have a calendar on line, but I like making initial contact with my guests and if I don't have availablity, I can make referalls.
My reservation deposit fee is 50% of your total payment and that is applied to your full rental cost . there is no cleaning deposit or damage deposit. I have to take people on trust. You have to leave the cabin as clean as you found it Bring your own linens.

Please note: My cancellation policy.: If you cancel after paying the deposit and it is within 30 days of your vacation date, you can choose to lose the deposit/or all monies paid or roll your reservation over for up to one year. If you cancel a second time, sorry, no roll over, no refund. There is no refund and no rollover for any time involving a holiday situation.

As for taxes, I do have to charge the state sales tax of 7% and the Fannin County tourist tax or lodging tax as they call it of 5%.

Location

WE ARE NOW HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE!!

The Toccoa River is Just Steps Away from the Back Door, Fly Fish or Walk the Bank, Keep All the Fish you Want. Secure fenced area-over 2 acres- for horses or pets if they have to be 'contained'. Grassed with barn and water. No Leash Laws here-pups can run to their heart's content.

Waterfalls can be found in Cooper Creek Recreation area, or go to the Swinging Bridge over the Toccoa River. Lake Blue Ridge and Nottely Lake in Blairsville both have marinas where you can rent boats, or bring your own.

Dahlonega has a great little downtown square where each shop is unique. Eating at the Smith House is a must! Learn to pan for gold at one of the open gold mines and take the tour--its worth it!

Or just hike the trails on our mountain . Wanting something really rugged? Hike the Appalachian or Benton McKaye trails. Dockery Lake and Lake Winfield Scott are close by for more fun activities.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Retired Agricultural teacher, now doing land development in Central GA for the discriminating horse owner. Also developing a small Angus Cattle operation

Why the Owner Chose Suches, GA, USA:
I spent summers at Lake Winfield Scott and fell in love with the area at an early age. While rapidly growing, the nearby towns of Blue Ridge, Blairsville and Dahlonega are not considered 'tourist traps' and have wonderfully friendly people

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We bring our horses and pups and it is great to see THEIR enjoyment. They love the trails and the summer coolness, especially. We mainly work to keep the grounds 'estate-like' and continue to upgrade the cabin.
