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. Enjoy the high ceilings, open main living area and the wrap around deck with wooded views. The towns of Pine Mountain and Warm Springs are very visitor friendly with Southern hospitality, regional restaurants (we do love our Bar-B-Que!) and specialty shopping and antiquing.

About Michael Lamb

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.

Michael Lamb purchased this chalet in 2002

Why Michael Lamb chose Warm Springs

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.

What makes this chalet unique

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!

Loved this mountain home

  • 5 of 5

This home is on top of Pine Mountain, in Warm Spring near the Pine Mountain Trail. This rental turned out to be the prefect location for us. The cabin was extremely well stocked, more than any other rental I have had, and I rent a lot!! The basement is huge, with a massive fire place, that the owner supplied wood for. Highly recommend this home and hope to return next year.

Little hidden oasis (not so little)

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were memorized with the cabin. We arrived on a rainy, cool day but after arriving at the cabin we quickly built a nice fire and shared a bottle of wine. We had a beautiful Christmas tree and outdoor Christmas lights.

We were a short 10 minute drive to Callaway Gardens and an even closer drive to FDR State Park with lots of hiking trails.

We had lunch in Warn Springs at The Bullloch House and then visited the Warm Springs Winery. Both are not to be missed.

The 2nd day we had lunch in Pine Mountain with all the locals at a fantastic Mexican Restaurant then back to our cabin oasis. We then went back to Pine Mtn for the best burger ever at The Iron Horsre and then on to see the Fantasy of Lights at Calloway .

Best Celebration of Anniversary and Birthday ever.

So much Thanks to Michael and his wife for an early check in and a wonderful stay.

It was everything we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Our quick weekend in Pine Mountain was perfect for our family holiday get away to see Fantasy in Lights at Callaway Gardens. The cabin in the woods had all the comforts of home and gave us the feeling of seclusion but still the perfect distance to civilization. Everything we needed was there (except food of course), cookware, condiments & seasonings, books, games, wifi, direct TV, plenty of blankets, pillows, towels and even a Christmas Tree! The owners were super friendly through email and met all our requested needs... an additional air mattress...the deluxe kind from Frontgate! We were lucky enough to even enjoy a blanket of snow in early December which helped boost the Christmas cheer! We hope to revisit someday!

Great rental for a great price.

  • 4 of 5

Four stars. No complaints really. Only reason it’s not five stars, is because some of the furniture was a little outdated. Period. But no complaints on that just an observation. Neesy ride backspace delete delete word four stars. No complaints really. Only reason it’s not five stars, is because some of the furniture was a little outdated. Period.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mountain Hideaway with our two children and small dog for the week of Thanksgiving. The home was wonderful- everyone was comfortable and the location was great for hiking, sightseeing and getting away from it all. We loved all the games, puzzles and books! What a treat! Thanks!

'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.
