4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 10-12
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!!

Great for families
We had a wonderful time at this rental. We traveled with 2 other families, 6 kids in total, and all were perfectly entertained. The property was large enough to keep everyone occupied and out of each other's way when needed :)
The hot tub was great, for both adults and kids. The beds were comfy. The location was good, a little further from Helen, but a relatively short scenic drive away.
This property was a great deal! We will book again.
House was great. We enjoyed the hot tub and games/activities available at the house. Owner was very easy to work with and provided timely communication.
Great vacation home for our family
Poppy Place was so comfortable. Plenty of room for our family of seven. Our 4 kids loved all the games in the basement. The views were beautiful and we enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit. It is located close to state parks, waterfalls, Helen and Dalonega. It actually has five bedrooms if you count the room in the basement with the futon. Owner very friendly and responds quickly to questions. Thank you for a relaxing and wonderful stay
Perfect home for a family summer getaway
Just got home from an amazing trip to poppy place. We went with 6 adults and 5 children. The home was perfect for all 11 of us and the kids loved the playroom down in the basement. Also really enjoyed the location of the home it is close to so many parks and waterfalls. If you are looking for a great home for a family vacation this is the place to go. The children's ages ran from 4 to 13 years old and there was fun for everyone. Also the homeowner Lucy couldn't have been more accommodating. She answered her questions right away whenever we had any and we found the home spotless. Also the kitchen has pretty much everything you would need to be able to cook anything you want. Would definitely stay here again
Wonderful home away from home!
Our families had a great time at this home! The kids loved the games, hot tub and s’mores on the fire pit! The adults loved the amenities and the serine out door space. Coffee on the porch in the rocking chairs was amazing! The driveway is steep but manageable most definitely not for faint of heart as stated in another post. Lucy answered all my questions and timely. Thank you for sharing with your home with us!
6/22-6/24: Our Time to Unplug- Girls Trip!
The house was exactly as presented on the website. Very spacious yet cozy and intimate feel for times when we wanted to bond. We enjoyed the hot tub which accommodates 6 small framed adults and only 5 if some are full figured. The weather was great so we were able to eat breakfast on the deck. Such tranquility!!!
It was our plan to have a cookout on the deck Saturday evening, but the grill was very nasty and we didn’t want to spend our “unplugging” event cleaning. Therefore, we cooked inside. The driveway is very steep! We drove a minivan very, very slow and was able to make it up to the house with no problems.
We had a party of 8, and everyone was comfortable in their space. There was room to accommodate at least 4 more people. My only complaints are the refrigerator was not cleaned to our expectations. As stated earlier the grill had not been cleaned and new towels/wash clothes are needed as they are worn and very hard.
We purchased toilet tissue, paper towels, trash bags, air freshener and hand soap. We left it all for the next guests to enjoy.
We are located about 4 miles south of the town of Blairsville and about 5 miles from Vogel State Park.
