Overview

About the property

Lodge, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

'The Mountain House', named by our grandson, is located in the Big Canoe resort and is a convenient 2 miles from the Big Canoe pool, lake, fitness center, golf club and The Chimneys wedding venue. Our home provides spacious accommodations with breath taking mountain and valley views. Our 5 bedroom 3 bathroom home has enough space for everyone to gather around the fireplace in the main room or to spread out by the fireplace in the terrace level, the screen porch, decks or other 3 floors.

As you enter the home on the main floor you will find a fully equipped kitchen with walnut cabinets, granite countertops and a double oven. The kitchen is spacious enough for multiple cooks to prepare a holiday meal, but if you prefer a more relaxed meal plan, use the Weber gas grill located on the large deck. You enter the family sized screen porch through the dining area. The porch is the perfect place to rock in the willow rocking chair while watching your dinner cook on the gas grill. The porch and deck provide long range mountain and valley views. The main level is also the central indoor gathering place to sit on the leather sofas while enjoying the floor to ceiling stone wood burning fireplace and the rustic beamed ceiling. In the fall and winter months you can cheer for your favorite football team while you watch the game on the 50' flat screen TV. The main floor bedroom is off of the main gathering room and has a king size bed, a 32' flat screen TV and a connecting bath.

Upstairs, the spacious master has it's own bathroom, a king size bed and a 32' flat screen TV. The second floor is also home to the 'Bunk Room'. The 'Bunk Room' has a two twin beds and is suitable for children or adults.

One floor up from the second floor master bedroom and Bunk Room is the Crow's Nest. The Crow's Nest provides the ultimate mountain views and is a quiet getaway for reading, viewing the mountains and valley or having a quiet workplace using the built in computer desk. The home is equipped with wireless internet.

The lower level provides another family room with a fireplace, 40' TV, DVD, and sound system. This floor is home to 2 large bedrooms and a bathroom. One bedroom has a king size bed with a connecting bathroom and the other bedroom has 2 full beds. Both bedrooms have 32' flat screen TVs. The downstairs family room has sliding doors leading to a covered porch and another large deck. Keep your eyes open because deer will cross through the side and back yards each day around 2 pm.

The Big Canoe resort area is set in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains. The Big Canoe mountain community setting boasts of 3 golf courses, tennis, swimming, canoeing, paddle boats, rock slide, hiking and fitness center. Summer month rentals (Memorial weekend to Labor Day weekend) include eight pool passes which allow access to the 2 outdoor swimming pools, paddle boats, lake obstacle course and the rock slide. There is something to fill every day of your visit or you may choose to just relax on the screened porch or outside decks.

About Joanne Leonard

We purchased this home after owning a smaller log cabin in Big Canoe. We wanted a home that was large enough for our family of 3 children, their spouses and our 6 grandchildren to vacation all at one time. We searched Big Canoe for a year and a half looking for the right house. When we walked through the door of this house we knew we had found our home. Our mountain home sleeps each family comfortably with room to spread out and enjoy the laid back lifestyle that Big Canoe has to offer. We look forward to sharing our home with you and your family.

Joanne Leonard purchased this lodge in 2010

Why Joanne Leonard chose Jasper

Big Canoe offers a resort style community that is close to our home in Cumming. Because of it's close proximiity to Atlanta, it is easy for our family to escape to the mountains in a community that has something to offer every age and every interest.

What makes this lodge unique

The tranquil setting in the woods allows us to sit and enjoy the beauty of nature, the wildlife and the fellowship of our family. My favorite part is getting away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. We enjoy sitting in the willow rocking chairs on the screened porch and visiting with our children and grandchildren. The home has an open floor plan with a beautiful large kitchen, a spacious dining area, and large living spaces with a rustic mountain decor. The home has 4 floors so there is room for everyone!

Wow! Wow! Wow!

  • 5 of 5

The house was rented for a getaway weekend from the daily grind of Atlanta city life, and the house was perfect. Although only 1 hour away from Atlanta, the scenery and tranquility of the house and Big Canoe feels so much farther. The house and its amenities were very comfortable and relaxing for my friends and I, and Joanne was prompt and courteous in all of our communications. When our friends and I decide to have another weekend getaway, we will definitely consider this house once again.

Joanne was great to work with and made sure everything was good for us. Big Canoe amenities were fun except the rock slide was closed. We had a great time & I highly recommend this home.

Wonderful escape

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were able to experience many of the Big Canoe amenities, enjoy playing games with family, and relaxing on the deck. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could have possibly needed. The beds were very comfortable. We've contemplated purchasing a property in Big Canoe previously, and this trip offered an incredible opportunity, so we did just that. Closing is next week!
