Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this cozy mountain home. It was in a beautiful area conveniently located near Murphy and North Georgia. The home had everything that we needed with a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and great rocking chairs on the porch. Good internet if needed. We stayed for a week while attending classes at the nearby Campbell Folk School. We will definitely be back!

Country retreat

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the location of this little house in the country. Exactly what we were hoping for. Very peaceful and serene. The only noise was a moo from a cow or a rooster crowing off in the distance.

The house could use some updating. The furniture isn't very comfortable and the shower head in the small bathroom did not work at all. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay though.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Wonderfull place with a gorgeous view into mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife we leave in Florida and decide to escape from the heat for 3 days. From the website, we find out this gorgeous cabin-rental house to spend a few days in a mountain.

Everything what we saw it online about the rental house and when we arrived were really true.All photos on the site that showed how the house and surrounded looked like it was the same way.

The house has all the amenities and everything you need it.The indoor kitchen has everything.The owners have made a folder of instructions and have provided information on which places to visit and to consider them and enjoy it!

From the porch of the house reveals a great view -especially early morning and at sunset!

A very good impression made us the wonderful attitude of the owners.One of them visited us the next morning to check if we arrive, it is everything all right and did we have any question, do we need anything!

From the location of the house are not that far two places to visit and enjoy it:

1. Vogel State Park far way around 40 min driving from the house- a wonderful place with a spectacular view.

2. Bear Hair Gap Trail - very nice place for a good hiking with an another spectacular view when you climb all the way up.

Only a have to be really careful when you driving during pm after sunset.The area doesn't have a street light and is so dark :)

Our stay was wonderful and the weather was perfect!

We definitely recommend this place.You will not be regret.

Thanks a lot for a wonderful stay-we are going to visit more and more the future!

:).Love it!

Cabin and view are amazing

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and the front porch view was amazing wished the wifi worked but it kept going out the beds was not comfortable and a long way from everything but other than that it was perfect couldn't ask for a nicer cabin and beautiful view with cows, deer, turkeys and no mosquitoes
