Frank Vawter purchased this house in 2012
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.)
We had a great time! The drive was easy and close to everything. The view was great. The owner was great at communicating with us before and during our stay. We will definitely be returning!
We enjoyed our stay so much. Christmas decor was beautiful, the cabin was well stocked with basics. The property was lovely.
Our family has enjoyed VRBO vacation homes in mountains of Tennessee, North Carolina, and Georgia over the years. We searched properties for the week of Thanksgiving and found a treasure in Frank and Nancy's home. They were very accommodating and gracious as they assisted us in making reservations for our Thanksgiving getaway this year. We found the property to be as advertised and then some. The porch and deck had spectacular views, the fireplaces were a treat on the cold winter evenings, the sleeping arrangements were perfect, and the kitchen was very well equipped for our meal preparations. We highly recommend this home in the mountains.
Almost Heaven is laid out perfectly for multiple families sharing the home. My son and his wife with 3 children loved the private downstairs with separate bedroom for extra privacy. My daughter and her child loved being upstairs with the huge bathtub. The views from the deck were just as the pictures display but the sunsets from there...awe breath taking. Listening to the critters rustle around at night in the woods and watching the stars while taking in family conversations are some of the great things we will remember about this cabin and vacation.
The drive up to the cabin from the main road was very pretty and scenic. The paved road all the way also made it very nice for the morning walks.
The owners also provide everything you may need and more. Right down to extra bird seed for the many bird feeders on the property and hummingbird food as well. The cabin is well stocked and very beautiful. Would recommend to anybody thinking of visiting this area. Loved loved loved it!
Almost Heaven is a wonderful cabin. We enjoyed our stay very much. The views are amazing.
The cabin is laid out perfect. Everybody has their own space. The cabin was very clean. We did some
hiking and attended some of the festivals in the area. We have stayed in several cabins in this area
over the years and this is by far the best. Definitely would recommend it.
