About Samantha Smy

We are a British family living in Georgia. This cabin is somewhere we can get together with our children and future grandchildren and enjoy each others company.

Samantha Smy purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Samantha Smy chose Northwest High Country

We love the mountains and the lakes and we wanted a place where the children can explore, fish, hike and play. Some great memories of spending good quality family time.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with this home because of its simplicity. The surrounding area is beautiful. Slightly cooler in summer here than where we live because of the mountains. The cabin is big enough for all of us to find a place to sleep (including our dogs) yet small enough for us all to be together.

Perfect family cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation at Big Canoe. Samantha's cabin was in the heart of Big Canoe near all of the amenities. Samantha was a pleasure and her cabin was the perfect family cabin. I highly recommend it for families with young kids. They will love sleeping in the upstairs loft. The cabin was cozy and spacious. The only recommendation I would make is that I wish the master bedroom had a larger bed. Other than that it was a wonderful vacation at a wonderful cabin and resort!

Very nice, affordable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

So the location was pretty good, although it was a little confusing the first time finding this spot. The house was very cozy, rustic and clean. The owner was super helpful and friendly with information, amenities and regarding the best part of our stay, which I will describe below:

While watching a movie in the living room at around 10 PM, we heard the sound of wood splintering outside, and our dog growling inside at the back door to the patio. Apparently someone cooked and dropped something behind the grill prior to our stay, because when I looked out the door, all I saw was a big head and two large paws clawing through the slats under the benches on the patio to get on. "Cupcake" the bear, was very motivated to get to the grill, and did so by climbing up the patio about 12' and breaking through the bench slats to get there! The owner was very nice and concerned about our safety, but my wife and I both felt like it was the coolest thing that could have happened, despite the minimal damage to the wood slats for Cupcake to get to his goal. When you stay in Big Canoe, you can forget you are in the mountains, in the middle of nature (because of all of the nice amenities), and we got a cool reminder of what's sharing the space with us!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our needs - we had a great time and I personally loved the open layout as I was the one cooking most of the time! Bring garbage bags & TP!
