Lovely House on a Lake

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and never wanted to leave. It was very spacious, and clean. I have stayed in many cabins and this one was really a house, much more updated. The one thing that was a drawback for me was the lake. It's super murky and I was expecting mountain clear water. But we still fished and kayaked. There's plenty of nearby places that you can swim, check out the nearby sliding rock! We would definitely return.

Nature lovers this place is for you!

  • 5 of 5

We love to travel to new towns and try and use VRBO or Airbnb when we go. Simple check in, we didn't have to worry about meeting up with owners for a key, they had a key code. The cabin was perfect for our stay. Kitchen had everything we needed. As stated bring extra paper products and laundry & dish soap.

The cabin is close to amazing hikes in Gorges State Park.

We enjoyed dining out in 3 different towns close to the cabin: Brevard, Highlands and Sapphire .

We caught several fish and really enjoyed the solitude of the cabin. Love that the lake is non motorized so peaceful at all times during the day.

We will book a full week next time. We did not have time to see all we wanted to see in just 3 nights. If you want fancy save this gem of a cabin for true nature lovers!

Private getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed the rustic cabin in the woods. We loved kayaking on Hogback lake, the scenery is picturesque. It was a pleasure to cool off from the hot Florida summer. I would definitely stay here again.

Holiday getaway

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I took a short vacation to recharge our batteries, and this darling house did the trick. We kayaked during the day along with other delightful vacationers, and went into Cashiers for wonderful shopping. We ate all meals here as we didn't want to miss any of the wonderful relaxed environment. We will be back!
