Lovely home with amazing views!
The house was lovely and the view of the mountains from the porch was amazing. Me, my husband, our two young children, and some friends went for a New Year’s Eve trip for the weekend. The house was very clean, spacious, easy to find on the maps/GPS, and provided everything we needed when it came to cooking meals and entertainment. The beds were comfortable and everyone especially loved the downstairs media area with the large projector screen for music & movies. Loved that it was on the main road and was only a few miles from tubing & ice skating. We had a small issue with the internet, but the owners were very responsive and helpful. We already talked about coming back again next year. Would definitely recommend!
Beautiful sunsets and views off the back porch. Location is great for places to enjoy. We enjoyed the room downstairs for movies and games the screen was so big and enough seating for all to enjoy. Owners very easy to work with. Enjoy your stay in the mountains
It was perfect for our needs, 7 adults and 2 children. Lovely home, wonderful amenities, awesome vie
Wonderful vacation spot. Shopping, grocery, restaurants in short driving distance. Absolutely gorgeous drive up the mountain. We plan to return there next year!
Gorgeous view and comfortable home
My husband and I and two other couples visited for our annual leaf peeping trip to the no. GA mountains. The leaves and the house did not disappoint. The house was very clean and had a lot of amenities. We especially loved the large screen tv on the lower floor. Another nice touch were the fresh flowers in the kitchen.. The owners were great to deal with. We would definitely recommend this home.
Loved the house, fantastic views of the mountains. Easy to get to, convenient to hiking trails.
Really enjoyed the house, easy all the way around. Easy to get to, even “maps” worked all the way here. Loved the views from the porch, we spent the day hiking then lunch in Highlands. Great having 2 king beds. Next time I will stay longer!
Great football weekend with friends!
The house worked well for 3 couples! The beds were nice, and we especially loved the downstairs king room. There were plenty of nice towels in all of the bathrooms. The stairs to the downstairs game room and bedroom are a little steep and were a little difficult for some to navigate...but the huge TV screen and comfortable seating for the AL football game made it worthwhile. Plenty of dishes in the upstairs kitchen and in the downstairs kitchen.
The location is perfect, a short drive to Dillard and Clayton or to The Highlands. We will definitely choose this place again!
Thank you for the lovely review. We're glad you enjoyed the game on the large tv! I'm glad you found everything to be just what you needed. We look forward to having you visit again.
