This house has amazing views and a lot of beautiful outdoor seating. Great place to visit with a large family, especially in good weather. Owner is extremely attentive and helpful. Definitely on my list of favorites now.

Plenty of room for all in this huge home with incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we first became aware of this property and made our reservation 13 months ago, our family has been excitedly looking forward to our stay. The purpose of our trip was to celebrate birthdays, watch the Georgia vs. Florida game in the home theater room, take in the mountain views, and just enjoy being together with our children and grandchildren. Everyone from age one to age 65 had a grand time and appreciated the spaciousness of the home. It was particularly great for our family to have two bedrooms with twin beds (and one of those bedrooms also had a twin hide-a-bed) where the cousins could giggle, play, and enjoy time spent together. It is difficult to find accommodations for 12 people, but this property fit the bill, plus had room to spare. With the size of the home, each of the three couples had a comfortable and spacious bedroom to themselves (all with that beyond-compare view!) rather than having to have kids on air mattresses at the foot of the bed!

The owner was so pleasant to work with and had a fire ready to be lit along with plenty of firewood. It is impossible to talk about this property without singing the praises of the incredible unobstructed view! The home sits high above most of the other properties in Big Canoe, and to be able to not only take in the view of the surrounding mountains but to also have a prime spot to look down on the lake was extra special. There are porches or decks with comfy seating on all three levels of the home -- a perfect place to just be still and enjoy!

I cannot imagine anyone being anything but thrilled with their stay at the Whitaker's home. It is exceptional!

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a bachelorette weekend at the home and the accommodations were just what we needed. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for 9 girls! A couple of people actually stayed at the house a time or two prior for family trips so we knew what to expect and nothing disappointed. The owner kept us updated regarding the power, water, and roads situation after Hurricane Irma. Luckily everything was in working order in time for our weekend. We highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a fun and relaxing weekend getaway!

This location is absolutely breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and spacious. There were 12 in our group and we had more than enough room. Greg was very gracious and attentive. He made sure all our questions were answered and that we had everything we needed. He even checked in during the weekend to make sure we arrived safely and were settled in. This was a great getaway. We loved it!
