About the Property
5 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath home with private fishing/ swim lake on 40 wooded acres
The cabin's big veranda with mountain views overlooks a private lake with a large deck, a zip-line and two canoes. A trail around the lake is an easy walk for all; there are lots of trails in the 40 acres, ideal for walking, hiking, mountain biking or horseback riding. Great views from screened-in porch and from porches off two main-floor bedrooms. Lovely two-story great room with stone fireplace. This property is ideal for families wanting to get away (lots of movies and games); for groups celebrating weddings at nearby Mountain Cove Farms Resort; or for those seeking proximity to Walker County's McLemore Cove, site of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Chickamagua Sept 19-22, 2013.
Five min. car ride away are caves perfect for exploring with kids, further out more advanced caving. Part of the Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Preserve, Rock Town's giant boulders make a natural 'town' perfect for hiking, exploring and climbing with kids. It is also an Atlanta favorite for bouldering. Fifteen min away is The Pocket, a Shirley Miller Wildflower Preserve. A board walk provides an easy way to admire endangered wild flowers while protecting them, and an easy hike to a gorgeous waterfall and creek. About thirty min. away are Georgia's Cloudland Canyon State Park and Chattanooga's Rock City. On the Alabama side, DeSoto State Park, DeSoto Falls and the quaint town of Mentone, AL, a mecca for summer camps, are less than 30 min away.
Our home is located less than five minutes away from a brand new restaurant in the area, The Mansion at Mountain Cove Farms. The restaurant opened in September 2013 and offers fine dining as well as a lighter fare including burgers and sandwiches. In December 2013 a pub opened right next to the restaurant, with three large-screen TVs, beer and wine. The combination is perfect for wanting to stay close by for 'a night out' watching sports with the added excitement of good company and good food! The restaurant caters meals and can bring the menu of your choice to our property!
Thirty minutes away are three well-known restaurants in the area, Canyon Grill in Rising Fawn, GA, Wildflower Cafe in Mentone, AL, and Ballinger's in Summerville, GA. The first two get a continuous stream of visitors from Atlanta, Chattanooga, Birmingham and other nearby areas. The third one is very popular among the locals as well.

About the owner: Busy family with four active kids, love to escape to our retreat in the NWGA mountains. Children are free to roam and explore nature, swim, fish, ride bikes or go caving nearby.
Why the Owner Chose Chickamauga, GA, USA:
We wanted to be no further away than an hour's drive from our home in Rome, GA for quick family getaways. The drive up there is incredibly beautiful; by the time we arrive we are totally relaxed. Ours private lake provides passive entertainment such as fishing and canoeing, or reading by the lake, but the zip line over the lake keeps kids very active. Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Reserve, Cloudland Canyon State Park, DeSoto State Park and Little River Canyon are all just a short drive away. Mountain Cove State Park and Resort are a short walk down the street!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We worked with an Atlanta architect to design a house that would suit the property. He framed great views of the mountains with big windows and lots of porches. We used local rock, cedar and other rustic material to give the cabin an established feel. The home is furnished beautifully and the indoors have a bit of a rustic European feel.
