About the Property

A great Mountain getaway close to many attractions and recreational acitivities

The Mountain House is a three level chalet located on one of the highest points of Pine Mountain, midway between the quaint Georgia towns of Warm Springs, home of Roosevelt's Little White House, and Pine Mountain, home of Callaway Gardens Resort. Our Chalet features two bedrooms plus a loft with a queen size bed, one and a half baths, a fully equipped kitchen and a wonderful stone fireplace available between October and March.

'The Mountain House' is located on the top of Pine Mountain, halfway between the towns of Warm Springs, Georgia and Pine Mountain, Georgia. It is adjacent to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) State Park and within walking distance of the Pine Mountain Trail. Our chalet is only fourteen minutes from Callaway Gardens Resort, a beautiful 2,500 acre nature preserve with a wide range of attractions including picnic areas, white sand beaches, hiking/biking trails, golf courses, and spring-fed lakes with fly fishing. Callaway also features a world-class Horticultural Center as well as the Butterfly Center, Wild Birds of Prey exhibition, and a wide variety of seasonal events. We are also located 20 minutes from the popular attractions of Wild Animal Sarfari and Butts Mill Farm, as well as the historic Roosevelt Little White House museum and grounds. For those wishing to travel a bit further, a new and very popular whitewater rafting course is located 40 minutes south, along the Chatahoochee River in Columbus, GA.

But most of all, the Mountain House offers peace and quiet, with mountain air in a relaxing and beautiful setting.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Transplanted Yankees from Ohio, where Joanna and I graduated from Ohio State (Go Bucks!), we moved our Family to Georgia in the early 1980's and never left. We are all Dawgs now, as Michael is an administrator and teacher with Georgia's Technical College System who earned his graduate degree from the University of Georgia. Joanna is a retired research scientist and an avid vegetable gardener. We live nearby in Midland, Georgia near Columbus on the 3 acres Joanna has always wanted for her gardens.

Why the Owner Chose Warm Springs, GA, USA:
We bought this property after moving to the area and renting another unit in the small neighborhood of A-frames and Chalets. It was within a short commute of work, and when our current chalet was remodeled, we bought it and it was our primary residence for several years. We loved living there full time and love going back frequently just to relax and enjoy the mountain.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Our chalet has three levels, an open floor plan with a high ceiling on the main floor and lots of light. It is cozy and has a wonderful deck overlooking the forest. A huge stone fireplace in the lower level is original and available to guests from October to March. We love the peace and quiet, the fresh air, and the pure mountain water that you will want to use to fill your bottled water empties!
