About Barbara and Jon Peters

We Bought This Beautiful Mountain Home In 2013 To Have A Place To Get Away From Out Hectic Lives. We Can Feel Ourselves Starting To Breath Deeply Just Coming Up The Road To The House. We Decided To Share It With Others And Are Pleased To Offer It To You And Your Loved Ones.

Barbara and Jon Peters purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Barbara and Jon Peters chose Morganton

It Was Love At First Sight. We Saw The Property On A Cloudy Day And Yet The Views Were Stunning. You Can See The Mountains Of North Carolina, Tennessee And Georgia From Almost Every Room In The House. In Addition, Despite The Clouds And Surrounding Trees And Mountains, The House Was Full Of Light. The Full Stone Wall And Log Siding Gave It A Cozy Feel Despite The Spacious Interior (more Than 3,100 Square Feet). The Interiors Had So Many Upgrades (granite Counters, Double Sinks, Extra Tall Doors, Hardwood Floors, Sophisticated Lighting). We Knew The Home Was For Us.

Other Extras Included The Convenient Location (close The Blue Ridge, Blairsville, And Murphy, Nc), Parking For 5 – 6 Cars, Paved Roads Except For The Last ½ Mile, And Complete Privacy From The Few Neighbors That Are In The Area.

Beautiful cabin and spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at many cabins in GA and this is the best one yet. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen for our stay. The view is just beautiful from the screen in porch and we enjoyed eating our dinner there. The owners Barbara and Jon gave detailed information for our stay which made it so easy for check in and check out. She provided a detailed notebook with maps and information of things to do in the area. This was a wonderful relaxing vacation and I would love to visit this property again. Thank you Barbara and Jon for your quick replies, wonderful property and the little details that made our stay great!

Views, Color, Comfort !

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 wonderful weeks in the mountains at “High Country Lodge” and it was enjoyed by both couples in our party. The lodge itself it set up beautifully and you really don’t need to do anything but sit back and relax. Thank you Barbara & Jon for sharing your beautiful home.

Very relaxing, calm, and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Family retreat to celebrate my mom's 85th birthday. Barbara and Jon have done a great job making the cabin warm and inviting. The cabin is supplied with all your needs with lots of games, puzzles, activities, and reading materials just in case thar tremendous mountain view becomes old hat. But of course how could it! The view is fabulous! And a resident hawk soaring just a few yards away is a sight to behold. Would highly recommend this mountain retreat to others looking for elegance in ountain cabin retreat!

We loved our stay...and roomy is an uderstatment.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this large home. Plenty to do around the cabin, but wonderful to just relax on the porch during a rain shower. We had a great time using the pool/ping pong table and hanging out in the basement. The porch commanded most of our time. Great views and I also enjoyed the foggy mornings. A few houses around, but hidden by the trees with plenty of space and privacy. Far enough away from town to "be away", close enough to get those forgotten or needed items. We stayed in for most meals, with a well appointed kitchen and grilling area. One night out for a wonderful meal at a delightful Italian restaurant. Thanks for a great time!!

A really great home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at High Country Lodge in July while on a mission trip. It is a great home and we had more than enough room for our group. The furnishings and decor are beautiful. The view is gorgeous. I encourage everyone to book your vacation there and you will see how great it is to stay in the North Georgia Mountains.

Beautiful and relaxing! Also, well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time but a few things came up. We had no hot water and discovered the propane had run out but the owners took care of this problem within a couple hours. On day three the hot tub started to smell and turn colors. We had to empty the water out and refill which took a long time to heat back up. This was disappointing but overall the cabin was gorgeous with plenty of room and games for the kids. The sheets were nice and soft with comfortable beds. Good quality towels. I would suggest bringing extra towels if you plan to use the hot tub.

Overall, I would stay there again. It was so nice to be up in the mountains with screened in porches to relax on.
