Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: When my wife and I built this second home, we decided that we wanted a mountain top, long range, sunrise view. We wanted to see billions of stars at night, a crystal clear view of the moon, the rolling ridges of Fall's colors below, the explosive painting every morning as God can only paint His sunrises. We got it all, and more! Now, we share it all with you!

Why the Owner Chose Ranger, GA, USA:
Go back and read the last paragraph. But, if I were looking for a rental for myself, my family or my best friends, I would want a place that is impressive, exciting to walk into, totally equipped for a high-end retreat; one with great beds, big, fluffy towels, a kitchen with upgraded appliances, utensils, abundant dinnerware and set up for fun, relaxation and romance.... So what is your question?

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Heaven's Peak was our way of aquiring our little piece of Heaven on earth when we wanted to retreat from it all, totally relax, hear the wind and birds. We wanted to have a luxurious, rustic mountain top home to share with our families, great friends, new ones, clients and sometimes just oursleves! It was built and furnished with all the love and attention to detail we could muster. One year later my love, my soul mate, my all, was taken from all of us in an auto accident. Now, when you mill around Heaven's Peak, you will feel the love and warmth she planted in our 'peak' into Heaven!
