Why Frank Vawter chose My Mountain
We left Alabama headed to the Cherokee and Pigeon Forge area of North Carolina to find the right mountain home to purchase. A relative suggested that we drive through Northwest Georgia to look at the possible mountain options here. We visited Blue Ridge for two days and were favorably impressed with the area. After continuing our trip to N.C. and spending two days there we decided that North Georgia offered everything we were looking for in a mountain home. Spectacular views, wildlife, bird watching, white water rafting, trout fishing, good places to eat, unique shopping areas and friendly people. One of the defining factors is the location. (2 hours from Atlanta and Chattanooga, 4 hours from Montgomery, Birmingham and Nashville.)

What an aptly-named home "Almost Heaven" is. The wraparound large deck and the large screened-in porch with lots of comfortable furniture encouraged relaxation outside with a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains for visual stimulation. We also saw lots of birds, deer, and an irritated fox who was being harassed by crows. The location of this cabin made it easy to explore the area -- from Gibbs Garden to Amicalola Falls State Park (be sure to visit the Lodge at the park -- their large restaurant had a fantastic view and really good food) to the Smoky Mountains National Park & lots of really interesting small towns. We wish we could have stayed longer, but will hopefully come back again to see more of what beautiful northern Georgia has to offer. Blue Ridge has a very large upscale grocery store that had everything we needed & more. "Almost Heaven's" internet was fast and reliable; Direct TV had plenty of stations to choose from when we wanted to crash at the end of a long hiking and sightseeing day. One more plus: we couldn't see any other houses from the property, even though there were houses close by & it was very quiet and peaceful. The hot tub and the fire pit were both nice amenities that we enjoyed.
!!!Beautiful House!!!. The whole family loved it so much.
!!!Beautiful House!!!. The whole family loved it so much. A good location, with many activities to have unforgettable moments with your Family. Already planning when to come back.
We stayed at Almost Heaven from April 2-6 and had a wonderful time. The home is very welcoming and you feel like you've had a hug when you walk through the door. This was our first stay at a cabin. Some things I noticed when looking at others is this cabin has a paved circular driveway that is flat. Also, the back deck is huge and split into an indoor/screened and outdoor/open section. A lot of the cabins have one or the other...but not both. It has a beautiful view of the mountains from the back deck. You can tell the cabin is well cared for and it is very clean. Our children loved the loft area with twin beds. They felt like such big kids with their own space. I loved the basement area which offers a nice family room that we enjoyed lounging in. We also cooked in a bit and found the kitchen to be well equipped. In fact, there are more than enough towels etc. available. It was close to the attractions we wanted to see too. If you are looking for a cabin, this one is a beaut! Thanks Frank and Nancy for welcoming us into your home! John, Jen, Ellen, and Jack
There are just not enough words to describe our stay at this beautiful property! The first thing we noticed when pulling into the driveway was the stunning mountain view! The view is just as stunning from the deck out back! Pictures and words do not do it justice! The cabin itself is beautiful too! There was plenty of room for the 8 people in our party. The "home" feeling we got was wonderful! The plants on the deck are wonderful too!! We were looking for a nice relaxing vacation and got just that! The kids and adults enjoyed a night of roasting marshmallows in the fire pit while spending quality time together! Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us! We will definitely be back!
The whole thing inside and out is so amazing! The grounds are beautiful and the hot tub was a huge hit! Loved the inside of the cabin - the main floor has everything you need, the loft is awesome for the kids and the basement is super neat - we loved hanging out down there at night! Thank you for all the you supply - especially all of the towels for after hot tubbing! Have to mention the screened in porch and the huge deck off the back - those are both incredible! Thanks for sharing your lovely cabin!
Beautiful views that you won’t want to miss!
We had an amazing time at almost heaven! The view is absolutely stunning and the House was perfect for us! We will definitely be coming back!
