About Lucy Harkness

I am an educator in Gwinnett County. My wife works for a publishing company. We have 4 girls, 2 of which are adopted from China. We fell in love with the North Georgia Mountains and the slower pace of life. Our first home purchase was a 2 bedroom/2 bath home in Clayton, Ga. vrbo/202442

Lucy Harkness purchased this house in 2012

Why Lucy Harkness chose Blairsville

This is our second property in North Georgia. We love the beauty and small town feel of Blairsville. Poppy Place was perfect for our families needs. We have stayed at numerous cabins in North Georgia. A lot of the places that say they will sleep 10-12 do but the living areas are tiny as well as the dining areas. We feel Poppy place is the perfect place for familes to get away together. The way the bathrooms and bedrooms are set up as well as the full furnished basement, makes it ideal for several friends to come along for the weekend. With the master on the main level, it is the perfect place for a romantic getaway for just the two of you.

What makes this house unique

This home is big. We have two full size sofas in the family room and a full finished basement with bar, tv, and game areas. The entire group can be together!!

We had our annual cabin time and felt right at home! It was very clean and very spacious. We didn't feel like we we're on top of each other! I would recommend to anyone!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

The beds are seriously very comfortable. My husband and I want a mattress like theirs now. The drive way is steep, but in low gear manageable. The kids loved the game room down stairs. The kitchen was stocked nicely. Hot tub was very clean.

Lots of space for our whole family

  • 5 of 5

This was a very large home with 3 levels. Allowed each member of our family to have a bed. My nieces and nephew enjoyed the hot tub. My other nephews loved all of the toys in the basement. We enjoyed the master bedroom on the main level. We had some issues with water pressure upstairs but had neglected to read Lucy's instructions regarding resetting the pump to improve water pressure. Heard from my mom that her shower was not draining properly. We did not have this issue in the main bathroom. The king bed in the master was comfortable. However, the king bed upstairs appears to sink to the middle. We enjoyed our stay overall. It was difficult to find the driveway at night. The Poppy's Place sign is not on the main road any longer.

Blairsville celebration my Mom's 95th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house. We had some issues with the water and air conditioning, however Lucy and Doug were easy to get a hold of, and made sure to get things fixed as quickly as possible. The kids enjoyed the basement area a lot.
