About Edwin Ashurst

I am a licensed Realtor working in the Atlanta area. We have always had a affinity for the mountains of NE Georgia. I worked in Cherokee and in Highlands during summer vacations and always wanted to own a retreat in the mountains and now we do. It's a pleasure to share this special place with you. Email me if you would like to see a copy of the rental agreement before you book your stay.

Edwin Ashurst purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Edwin Ashurst chose Northeast Mountains

We found the house that sits above this home about an acre away and fell in love with it and bought it nearly 10 years ago. When the builder's ex-wife chose to sell her smaller cabin and move on we jumped at the opportunity to increase our land and add this beautiful little cabin as a place for our friends and family to stay.

What makes this cabin unique

This home is the definition of cozy and, in this case, it's not just a euphemism for small. There are large comfortable sofas, skylights in the living and dining area, a wood stove that will heat the entire home and lots of peace and quiet. It's a perfect place for that Romantic retreat, or a place to park yourself and work on that novel, or to sit in quiet contemplation or use as a base of operations for the many outdoor activities available in the area.

Notes:
Your vehicle could possibly use higher clearance than your average sedan. Cross over SUV's and trucks are perfect. You may not want to drive your Porsche but many guests with Toyota Corollas have made the journey with absolutely no issue. The driveway is rustic hard pack rock and dirt and can be bumpy but we attempt to regularly take steps to keep the road smooth and easily passable. You do not need 4 wheel drive except when there is a chance of snow and ice.

In the middle of no where. Close enough go be somewhere. Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

First off I do have a jeep but even after reading about the road I brought my car. Road is fine just don't get in a rush and it's not very long. House was perfect. Only used one of the two rooms. But loved the deck that wrapped around the house. I'll be back thank you for everything and very reasonable priced.

Prefect spring break get away

  • 5 of 5

The location was nicely secluded and provided a great reprieve from the city. However, it wasn't too far from town so we could still explore without much hassle. Overall, a wonderful experience. :)

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the cottage and town. The decor is perfect, especially all the little touches. Make sure you arrive hungry! The restaurants are amazing!! You do need a reservation at Fortify Kitchen and Bar. We got really lucky. Can't wait to go back!!

It was a great place to get away and relax.

  • 4 of 5

It was a little difficult to find and the road was more than bumpy. Other than that it was a great cabin!

Owner's Response: The road is described as "rustic" and it shouldn't be a surprise since we make it very clear in the description and the rental agreement. Also, the property is only 2 turns off of 441 so it's difficult to understand how it could be difficult to find if one follows the provided directions.

Charming little Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was clean and furnished. Driveway was somewhat rough, but nothing that would necessitate a 4x4. (Owner is upfront about this in the description) Mattresses were newer but very firm. Had some issues getting the correct code for entry but the property owner was very quick in responding. He also lives near the rental. My only issue (and it was minimal) was that the deck needed to have the leaves blown. The property is set around many large beautiful trees that had shed 90% of their total leaf volume onto the deck. Normally this wouldn't be an issue but they managed to find their way into the hot tub and made navigating from the hot tub to the door an adventure. Overall for the quality of the rental and the price, I would definitely reccomend the Owls Nest Cabin and will more than likely make reservations here again if I come back to the area.

Abbeville SC Girls!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in this well kept, cozy, unique and rustic cabin! We defiantly plan on going back so we can enjoy the horse shoes and fire pit outside on the next go around! There was a lot of room and we were to ourselves with some great views!

Secluded and private but not remote location near Tiger and Clayton, Georgia.

Tallulah Gorge, Lake Rabun, Lake Burton, and the Chatooga River are all within 15 minutes as well as the new Rabun County Arena. There is plenty of shopping for antiques, art, flea markets, and mountain crafts.
