About Martha Hartsfield
Pete and Martha enjoy the mountain areas and enjoy having family gatherings in their mountain home. With 4 children, 12 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren, our home has provided lots of educational and fun activities over the years.
Martha Hartsfield purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1999
Why Martha Hartsfield chose Rabun Gap
This area is beautiful and has something for everyone--shopping, golfing, hiking, water rafting and many more! It is centrally located so that you can visit Dollywood driving through the Smoky Mountains or visit Ashville and get back the same day. We've been staying in and enjoying the area since 1970. We picked out the lot, and we actually built the home ourselves with the help of family and friends.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Awesome sunset mountain views! Beautiful wooded area with wonderful fall colors!

Well appointed and spacious house with beautiful views.
The property was very clean inside and out when we arrived. We did alot of cooking and the kitchen is very well appointed. Beautiful view of the mountains and farmland. Spacious bedrooms and common areas. Only small issue we had was some TV remotes were missing batteries. Would definitely recommend to others.
Beautiful home in a quiet but close to town location. Can't wait to go back again!
Best two days in the mountains ever! Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, plenty of space to socialize or find some quiet time, and the fire pit was a huge hit. Nothing but good things to say about the home and the gracious hostess! Thank you, Martha!
My family and I spent Christmas at the house it is beautiful the kitchen was well stock. The host was awesome answered all of my questions and
was very helpful. My family and look forward to returning .
Wonderful place for a reunion with friends
Three college friends and their wives shared this home for a long weekend. The house was perfectly suited for our needs. There are 3 separate bathrooms and 4 bedrooms. The kitchen is also well stocked and large enough for several people to be in there at once. The great room also has amble sitting areas. There are many wonderful hiking trails within a short drive. We also were able to use the fire pit during our stay.
Thank you so much. Happy your stay was good, and I hope you’ll come again soon.
Thanks again for staying with us!
Great Place, Great Location, and Great Views.
I usually don't write reviews but I felt that this vacation home was special.
The home is located just far enough from town to give you a true country feel but close enough to all the conveniences and activities that adds to the vacation experience.
The home is very clean and well appointed. Each room has a beautiful setting with a true country look of warmth that makes you feel at home as soon as you enter. The deck offers an outdoor eating area next to the dining area that allows for a more open feel.
The kitchen is well stocked with good cookware, plates, dinnerware and appliances. There was even spices, some coffee and other cooking supplies. The washer and dryer worked great and made our stay even better.
The views from the living area, porch and outside yard were beautiful. You overlook a valley with a mountain back drop which made you feel relaxed and calm. On the days that might be to cool for the porch, the living room offers a beautiful fireplace(gas) that you can sit by and still enjoy the views. There is even a little fir tree with stuffed bears that adds to the overall charm. For those who keep an eye on the weather there is a weather stick that can be viewed from the living area.
For those who need it, the WIFI, cell phone service and TV/Cable worked good.
There is a nice fire pit with a good view on the lower ground level that made our stay even better. Only wish we had done smores.
There is covered parking for two cars with a short uncovered walkway to the house and additional parking for at least two more cars.
What a wonderful review! We appreciate it so much. So much that you commented on, we’ve felt most never noticed or cared about. Now we know better!
Thanks again, and we hope you’ll stay with us again.
This is without a doubt, the nicest place we've stayed in yet. The only complaint we had was the beds downstairs could have been more comfortable, but with all the other assets, we could excuse that. Beautifully decorated as well as beautiful view and easy to get to. Owner was very accommodating. Can't say enough about her graciousness. Evelyn
Thanks for the kind words! Will have to check on beds as this is the first we’ve heard that. It’s hard to have a happy medium on softness etc. for all, but will definitely check on.
Thanks again for staying with us.
