Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Lofts, 2 Bathrooms With Large Deck And Fire Pit (Sleeps 7)

Appalachian Lady Bug is a 17-year-old home built by local craftsmen. The cabin is adorned with reclaimed barn wood, handcrafted metal work, masonry and woodwork. The result is a true taste of Appalachia, yet it hosts all the conveniences of a modern home. The amount of artistic detail and variety of wood and stone used in the construction of the cabin give it a purely “one of a kind” feel. The cabin is newly renovated and decorated in folk art from the area. This property is uniquely nestled in the National Forest which can be observed from the covered porch and an outdoor kitchen area which opens into a large patio and fire pit.

About Sarah Reynolds

Hi folks! Thank you for your interest in my cabin. A bit about me... I am a native Georgia girl, a mom, a wife and a librarian (no bun and glasses for me, though!) My husband and I live 30 minutes from the cabin with our 2 children and our crazy dog Mangus.

Sarah Reynolds purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Sarah Reynolds chose Dahlonega

This house is near and dear to me, and I lived here for 12 years. After re-marrying, my husband and I wanted to keep the place and thought it would be great to fix it up and share it with others. It is one of those places that just makes you feel good. While the inside is lovely, I have probably spent more hours on the porch just 'being' than anywhere else. It is cool in the summer, lush in the spring, glorious in fall, and as cozy as can be in the winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The seclusion and coziness of the Ladybug was perfect for our weekend getaway and mini-moon. The rainy Fall weekend was peaceful and relaxing after our wedding weekend.

The location of the cabin offers seclusion, yet is easily accessible to active vacationers. It is located only 4 miles from Amicolola State Park, 12 miles from Dahlonega, and 15 miles from Dawsonville. The immediate area offers a myriad of outdoor activities including hiking, hunting, horseback riding, and fishing, but is also a great place to just sit and read a book.

Notes:
Need a weekend away from the hustle and bustle? Come watch the sunset over the ridge and sit on the porch listening to the creek. Come see how the stars look and how the mountain air smells when you get away from suburbia. I welcome you to an unforgettable stay in one of the most serene places on earth, a place we have come to call the Appalachian Lady Bug. The cabin is ideally suited for two couples with kids or a small group. Hunters, anglers, bikers, hikers and horse riders will find this an ideal base camp for sporting activities. It has two bedrooms, each with a sleeper loft and independent full bath. The kitchen is fully equipped and the living area is appealing and cozy. Most of your time, however, will probably be spent outside on the spacious deck or patio.

Although very isolated, we found this cabin to be very convenient for the places we like to visit, Dahlonega, Gibbs Gardens, and Blue Ridge.

It was very quiet and serene!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very cute and had some awesome decorative touches to the place that made it unique! I loved that they left a book with directions and suggestions of places to eat,hike, and shop in the area! We came for a wedding and did not get to spend as much time at the cabin as we would have liked but it was a wonderful place to stay. We would love to come back!

COZY!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend some time in.... very comfortable for two families or just two couples... we were greeted on the first day by a beautiful BEAR! She came out and as she was crossing the road, she stopped and looked around.. not a care in the world.. what a treat! Dalonaga is very close for shopping and restaurants.. Can’t wait to come back!

Home away from home

This cottage is adorable and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything we needed was there and the owners were available by email or phone and responded quickly to any questions we had. Highly recommend it.

We enjoyed the uniqueness and charm!

  • 5 of 5

Love all the details right down to the bottles of drinking water in the frig and free long distance since there is no cell service, so thoughtful. We are still marveling over all the decorations. May suggest swapping out cordless phone, it had a buzz that didn't go away, hard to hear, both ways.
