Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Hiking enthusiast! This is a private, two story cabin on a small, loud, rushing stream with not a soul in sight. It is the perfect place to relax, unwind, or if you like, start or end your hike. Less than two miles by car to Dick's Creek A/T access. If you would rather...you can take an easy 2 mile hike down the private National Forest Road in front of the cabin and then go approximately an additional 1 mile, moderate hike which will bring you to Tom Cowart Gap on the A/T. Not a hiker, well just take a quiet stroll through the park like setting along the level, tree canopied path with 200 ft of rushing stream bordered by National Forest along the back of property ...again, not a soul in sight. There is a fire pit, swing and benches there for your enjoyment . It's the perfect place to just sit and relax. With two porches and an upstairs screened balcony, you never have to leave the comfort of the cabin to enjoy the sights and sounds of the stream below. The three upstairs bedrooms (one with it's own private balcony) each with queen beds for your comfort. All are equipped with ceiling fans, alarm /sound machines. The cabin has two full baths (one upstairs and a smaller full bath downstairs). There is a large family room with a glass fronted wood stove and large screen TV and a separate living area with TV off the dining area. Wifi, Premium HD Direct TV and telephone with free long distance is also included.

If you just need a home base, this is the perfect place. The cabin is centrally located to many of North Georgia's prime locations....The Georgia Mountain Fair Grounds (approx. 9 miles,) Lake Chatuge and Lake Burton (approx. 7 miles). Clayton, Blairsville, and Helen are all within 20 miles of the cabin. Hightower Winery is 1/2 mile away, A/T trail head 1 1/2 to 2 miles by car. Completely furnished with everything you need. Come stay a week or a long weekend...you will never want to leave.

About Nancy J Wilson

My husband and I have been coming to the the North Georgia Mountain area for over 30 years and have always dreamed of having a place of our own. It's still hard to believe that this piece of heaven is actually ours. Many have shared theirs with us, now we hope to share ours with you.

Nancy J Wilson purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Nancy J Wilson chose Hiawassee

We love the North Georgia Mountain area.... the people, the scenery and there is always something to see or do.

What makes this cabin unique

The peaceful quiet woods with no visible house in sight. The sound of the stream is so relaxing. Several places to 'escape' from the crowd.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It snowed! What a lovely place! We enjoyed our stay and felt God in these peaceful mountains. The house continued to surprise with wonderful views from each room of the landscape, trees and mountains. A deep sigh of contentment escapes....what a lovely place.

Paradise in GA

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved the cabin and everything about it inside and out. The cabin was very welcoming, loved the views from every room and the porches! So calming and relaxing. We had everything we could have asked for, extremely well equipped. We loved spending time at the fire pit, and stream! The property owner, Nancy, is amazing! She was very welcoming, and very informative regarding all the amenities at the cabin and the surrounding area. We were only able to stay 4 days. We will definitely try and come again and spend more time, because this is truly paradise!

Stunning Property!

  • 5 of 5

What a unique and wonderful cabin in the woods! It is perfectly remote, yet just a ten to fifteen minute drive to a major grocery store. The property itself is the real draw, with well maintained paths leading down to the stream and fire pit, and to an additional outdoor dining area. There area sculpted faces in the trees, birdhouses seemingly everywhere, and even a bottle tree. Great decks and porches and spacious rooms in the house, comfy beds, and a very well-outfitted kitchen if you're into cooking. One of the best north Georgia cabins I've ever stayed in.

Cabin was everything advertised & more. Roomy, well stocked kitchen, cozy & private. Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Property is well maintained, great layout for different activities & perfect fire pit beside the stream setting. We enjoyed snow tubing, visiting surrounding towns & local attractions. We will definitely rent this property again. A bonus was that it snowed on our last day so we were able to enjoy snow which we rarely see in South GA.

Beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the cabin and how secluded it was! The cabin was very clean and well kept. We eneded up staying during a snow storm which caused us to loose power but we didnt have to worry about anything since the owner made sure the cabin was stocked with everything we would need! We will definitely be back!

Relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful mountain home. It was so peaceful and relaxing sitting on the screened porch and listening to the stream below. We enjoyed taking long walks in the surrounding area and building fires by the stream. The house was beautifully decorated and was supplied with everything we needed. The communication with the property owner was awesome upon our arrival. We felt so very welcome and appreciated the tips given to us that helped make our stay so enjoyable!!
