Modern, well appointed cabin exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The first thing I thought upon entering the cabin was 'This place is a lot nicer than the pictures!'. After picking rooms (the master suite is amazing, btw), my friends and I settled in to games of ping pong, pool, hiking the nearby Talullah Gorge, cooking meals in the modern kitchen, relaxing in the hottub, and even some great star-gazing. Since we stayed here over New Years', we we able to watch a few college football games on the gigantic projection tv in the downstairs rec-room. Although we didn't get the chance to try, life-size Mario-Kart or Smash-Brothers or Rock-Band on the projection tv would be truly amazing! Long story short, my friends and I barely scratched the surface of the possbilies for things to do here. Tons of things for everybody to do and conveniently located for traveling up from Atlanta, this place has it all!

Nice getaway

  • 4 of 5

A group of 12 of us stayed at this property and it was very nice. The only complaint I would have is, the tvs are hard to opperate. There are 3 remotes for one tv. Otherwise very well stocked and a beautiful piece of property

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Recently rented out this Lakemont home with a group of 8 friends. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable, spacious place for our weekend away. The creature comforts of the cabin and the beauty of the surroundings made it pretty hard to find any reason to leave the premises. Cannot recommend this property enough!

Great house for mountain golf weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Went up in Septemeber for two days of golfing with some old friends. What a great house. it is somewhat secluded so no close nighbors, has all the amenities you need and 8 beds as well! Plenty of room. We had rain at night, thus could use the covered porch if needed to get outside. It was also very convenient to the highway (441) so easily accessible. The owner was very helpful as well. I highly recommend.

Comfortable House near Tallulah Falls

  • 5 of 5

My family and another recently returned from a long weekend at this Lakemont property. I had several email exchanges with the owner during the reservation process. The owner quickly responded to those inquiries. Upon arrival I did have to call the owner to answer a question regarding the furnace and he was very helpful and quickly sorted out the issue.

The house itself is very comfortable with plenty of room for our family of 9 people. Given its easy access from the main Highway it is surprisingly private and quiet. The house is exactly as described and pictured by the owner.

The lower level is perfect for kids - two bedrooms, bathroom, large comfortable seating area with TV and game consoles, and the game room with pool and ping pong tables.

We very much enjoyed the weekend.
