Talking leaves is a Cherokee Indian term for the observed written communication between the first settlers to Northern Georgia. Not understanding the concept of written communications before then, the Cherokees called the pieces of paper passed along by settlers “talking leaves”. However, after a few minutes rocking on the porch of Talking Leaves Cabin, one would easily identify the double entendre of the cabin’s name. The leaves surrounding the cabin rustle prior to the breeze reaching you, as if “talking” to you letting you know of the approaching breeze.
The Cabin is in a mountain country setting surrounded by nature and trees. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the city. While driving down the road to the cabin you feel like you are going into another world. So leave your worries behind. The Cabin was built in 2002 and is located on a mountain ridge. The long range breath-taking layered mountain views and the beautiful sunsets that can be seen from the back balcony of the cabin are spectacular. Memories are made here.

After a vacation week in Blue Ridge, we fell in love with the area. Within 7 months we had found and purchased our cabin. We plan to retire to the area within the next 10 years. Right now we live in FL and enjoy getting away to the mountains as often as possible.
Owner purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Owner chose Blue Ridge
The long range breath-taking layered mountain views and the beautiful sunsets that can be seen from the back balcony of the cabin. The location is far enough away but convenient to the stores, grocery, and restaurants. So, that one can get the necessities that one needs to have. The general friendliness of the residents of the town of Blue Ridge.
What makes this Cabin unique
The peaceful serenity of nature. The many animals that have been see near the cabin such as Deer, Fox, Wild Turkeys, Raccoons, Humming birds, and an occasional Black Bear. One can enjoy the quietness of the mountains, the relaxation of the hot tub, and the beautiful sunsets.

Part of the Blue Ridge magic
We so enjoyed this property! It had such a beautiful view that we wrapped up in blankets and set on the deck with a hot cup of coffee despite the cold temperatures. The cabin was clean, neat and delightfully decorated. It was so nice to have a log for the fireplace each night. I would highly recommend this cabin.
Great stay for away time!
We really enjoyed out stay. The place was perfect for the two of us to get away and have some time alone from little kids :) 10 minutes away from downtown and easy to get to, we would definitely recommend it for a couple or for two couples.
Highly Recommend! Amazing Stay at Talking Leaves
We stayed 5 nights with another couple. Perfect for friends travelling together, each couple had their own bedroom with sliding glass door to the upper porch and en suite bathroom. I could literally see the outline of the mountains in the moonlight while dozing off to sleep in a super comfy bed! The hot tub was so nice on the chilly nights. The upper and lower porches are spacious but they provide the only outside entertaining space. The property is very wooded and steep, with no real yard or grassy area but that was no problem for our group.
We cooked one meal (spaghetti and garlic bread) and found all cooking utensils and cutlery needed to do so. Everything we looked for (corkscrew, blankets for chilly evenings on the sofa, a starter log for the fire, paper towels, dvd's), we found right where you would expect it to be. We were very impressed with the cleanliness, so major kudos to housekeeping! Everything was very well thought out, including a welcome message written on a chalkboard (so cute!).
Much to our delight, we had a couple of wild life sightings. I saw my first fox on the way up the mountain and one of our party saw a bear scamper up the hill beside the house in the early morning hours (don't worry, Mr. Bear was more afraid than we were).
Communication was great and we knew exactly what to do at checkout- the simplest check out I have ever seen. Use the directions provided by the host because GPS goes crazy about a mile before reaching the cabin. The road to the cabin is maintained but use caution during rain and when approaching another car. We have Verizon and had great service during our entire stay. The wifi provided was flawless, so no complaints there, either.
We all agreed that we would come back without hesitation. This was a delightful trip and we will treasure these memories forever.
Wonderfully cozy cabin
We enjoyed our stay very much, the cabin is lovely. The views off the back porch are amazing. The cabin is conveniently located ten minutes from main street yet has a secluded location. There are other cabins nearby but you'd never know they were there. It's super quiet up there and we never heard or saw anyone else. We really felt right at home, the owners even had a personalized welcome message waiting for us. The bed was comfortable, the sheets were soft, the place was spotless, the kitchen had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again.
Not Your Average Vacation
We really loved our stay at Talking Leaves cabin! Initially, we weren't sure if we were going to make it to the cabin, not because of illness or something like that , but because of the snow that had fallen the day before. We ended up having to walk 1/2 mile in the snow, uphill - both ways (should sound familiar to some people) to get to and from the cabin. I must say that it was quite an experience, but it was well worth it. We met some lovely people and enjoyed the special quiet that only snow can bring. We look forward to visiting again in the near future.
Very close to town. Lois was very helpful and kind. Views were great from the decks. house was cozy and clean. Bed was comfy and rooms very private with the separate baths and distance between them. I would recommend this to anyone.
