About Leanne Walasek

Owner and Georgia Real Estate Broker who loves the outdoors wants to share my paradise with you. I am a small business owner, a frequent traveler, a sports enthusiast and a nature lover. I know once you step on the property, you will fall in love with it like I have.

I am currently in the midst of a personal sabbatical, working at jobs I love, meeting everyone I can and will soon write about my experience in the loft of the cabin. In the meantime, please enjoy my Daves' retreat while you can.

Leanne Walasek purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Leanne Walasek chose Morganton

A short trip from ATL will find yourself in the middle of the Chattahochee National Forrest. Once you visit, it will become very obvious how lucky I was to find this cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

I recommend coming prepared with at least a few days of groceries. Once you arrive, you will not want to leave. Even though the nearest grocery store is but 15 minutes away, you'll want to leave civilization behind for a least a few days.

First order of business after putting up the groceries is to pour yourself your favorite beverage and sit on the front porch swing. Unwind. Relax. Decompress.

Next, familiarize yourself with the house. Pick your bedrooms. Become one in the treetops as you gaze out the giant loft windows. Make yourself at home. You will soon find how easy that will be.

Peak at the basement. Plan your downstairs game time. Maybe a little wager at the pool table. Bring your Wii or X Box to hook up to the gigantic TV. The kids won't surface for hours.

Next fix yourself your favorite meal. My favorite, a big spaghetti dinner. The open kitchen and living area provides a great gathering spot. Of course, hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill is a crowd pleaser. If you bring your own wood, you can use the fire pit in the middle of the gravel driveway (away from cars!). There are plenty of lawn chairs to sit and roast marshmallows.

Take a hike down Daves Road. If you continue past the house, this will lead you up Gork Hollow to the top of Picklesheimer Mountain. There are beautiful views up there. The walk is peaceful, through the tall pines and oaks, past the mountain feeder creeks embraced by dense ferns. You might even come upon a few deer.

Be adventurous and explore the area. Embrace the north Georgia mountains. Fish, hike, shop, dine, raft, and do some scenic driving. Make sure you visit all the websites listed. With the numerous things to do, you might run out of time if you don't plan!

OR you can just stay at the cabin and relax!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay at this cabin- check in and check out were very easy, it was in a beautiful area, close to downtown Blue Ridge and amazing hikes, and it accommodated all of our guests perfectly. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful remote getaway

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful area, beautiful cabin. Very large and spacious. Enjoyed the Morganton and Blue Ridge area very much. Went up to see the eclipse, had a fabulous time. Just a couple of things that a future renter might want to know. . .while we loved the place it is in need of a little maintenance. The bed in the Hawaii room was very saggy. If you really like to play pool you will be sorely disappointed with the table. Our guys were really looking forward to using it, but found it unusable. Other than that we really loved our time there.

Owner's Response: The bed in the Hawaii room is a foam temporpedic mattress, as listed in the description. These mattresses are soft. The pool table is a recreational pool table with a ping pong table top. This is also listed in the description. It is not a competition size pool table.

Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is located about 20 minutes from the town of Blue Ridge. Even though it's secluded, the cabin is very easy to find. There is a large field that our dog loved to run free in. The cabin is very open and comfortable. We loved the porch to sit and have morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. The atmosphere that surrounded the cabin lends itself to family time. I got to spend quality time with my grown children. The cabin is close to Lake Blue Ridge, which is beautiful. We rented a pontoon with a tube and had a great time. The owner is wonderful and answers any questions almost immediately. The only thing I recommend is to write down directions because there is no cell service in the area. Once you get to cabin, there is WIFI and we used it to enable our phones. We stayed 4 nights and could have stayed another 4 nights!

Cabin was beautiful and in a remote, quiet location. We saw a lot of wildlife.

  • 4 of 5

Clean and well maintained. My family had a great time and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Plenty of room. Only suggestions would be to fix mattress in bedroom on main floor. (Missing some slats underneath so the mattress sags terribly). Bring your own pillow; pillows left a lot to be desired.
