Guestbook comments from the owner

"Upon opening the door, we knew we had made the right choice for a mountain getaway cabin rental. It was spotless, very well decorated, all of the furniture was top-of-the-line and comfortable. Nothing was overlooked, including the high-thread count sheets and thick, soft towels. The view was amazing; the paved road leading up the ridge was excellent. The only thing missing was more time to enjoy it! The owner was also very thorough in providing all information needed. We can't say enough about this cabin!"

Would give this six stars if we could!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful home! Designer decorated but still very comfortable. Rooms were large with beautiful vaulted ceilings. Kitchen is well-appointed. The ensuite bathroom adjoining the master bedroom was incredible. We could also spend days just enjoying the wraparound porch and watching the world go by. Liz is a wonderful host and we will definitely be visiting again.

Know before you go: This home is located near the top of a ridge on the edge of the Chattahoochee National Forest. The one-lane road/driveway is steep but well-paved. You do need to be comfortable with mountain driving. There is ample level parking at the cabin itself. Cell phone service was spotty for us (AT&T), however there is excellent high speed Wifi provided, so you can make VOIP calls (like Google voice or Skype), or use your preferred messenger applications. Or just enjoy getting disconnected from the world for a little while! There is a landline so you won't be disconnected if an urgent need arises.

Amazing Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a long Christmas weekend. The cabin was absolutely perfect, loved everything about it. It was also immaculately clean :) The cabin has a beautiful view as well. We felt right at home and will definitely plan on staying there again. The owner Liz is very nice, we didn't need anything but when I spoke with her before coming she was very informative and sweet, which I appreciate. Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us!

Great fall weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I only spent 2 days at Smoky Ridges, but we could have stayed longer! We loved how quiet it was at the house, and the interior was very comfortable. We also enjoyed the location, there were many sights to be seen in the area.
