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 Northwest High Country

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.

Great property; beautiful view; very clean & private

  • 5 of 5

The best kept cabin you'll find in the area -- this was my second time staying. It has everything you'd need, the owners are very nice and organized (it's not managed by some faceless cabin rental company), and a family of 6-10 can stay very comfortably; it could fit more. Back porch view is beautiful for breakfast and dinner on the screened-in deck. Barbara and Jon's recommendation to rent a boat on Lake Nottely (Nottely Marina) was spot-on; everyone had a great time, and lake is quiet and relaxing. We'll be back in the fall!

One very minor suggestion... some of the pans are aging and could use an update. Too many inexperienced cooks, I imagine :)

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We had the perfect weekend getaway with 9 of our best girlfriends. I can't say enough about this cabin. It is beautiful, spacious, super clean and the view is amazing. We made memories to last a lifetime! I will definitely stay here again! Thanks to the gracious owners.

Weekend Trip

  • 5 of 5

What a great time! This place is massive and stocked with everything you need for the weekend! We had plans to visit Blue Ridge and a winery all day Saturday but ended up staying in the cabin all day because it was so nice and relaxing. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend!

Amazing Surprise Weekend Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

Just to give a little detail, I planned the weekend for my husband's 40th birthday!! Barbara was helpful with every aspect. She responded immediately and answered every question that I had, she was extremely accommodating from the very beginning to the very end. She really does equip the home with every detail that you could possibly need to make your stay even more enjoyable! The cabin was tip top clean for us upon arrival too!!

The views are simply gorgeous and exactly what we hoped for! But it's just even better in person of course!!

Inside, you feel immediately like you are home! Everyone had plenty of room, each guest had their own bed (which all rooms were so comfortable) and there is plenty of space around the rest of the cabin to spread out!

I had planned a surprise trip to Tank Town USA and also a day of zip lining!! The guys had an absolute blast, I can't recommend that place enough as well!

Barbara was so kind to provide recommendations to all attractions in the area. Detailed directions to everything that we needed, including tank town and it just made things so much easier for everyone, we didn't have a thing to worry about!! Which is key when trying to plan a group and a surprise on top of that!!

The place exceeded our expectations and Barbara was so easy to work with and communicate with!! I can't thank Barbara and her husband enough for letting us stay in their beautiful home!

Thanks again for being a part of such a memorable birthday for my husband!!!

Take Care!!! And we will All definitely be back again in the very near future!! :)

Great cabin getaway for the family

  • 4 of 5

Greatly built 3 story cabin just north of Blue Ridge, GA. Located high on the mountain with a great view. Takes several minutes off of the main highway to get to it. Beautifully decorated with lots of amenities. Hot tub needed cleaning as well as downstairs bathroom. Overall a great rental!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. I'm so sorry about the unusual circumstances regarding the downstairs bath and the hot tub. We clearly had water and septic issues that converged right before your stay. I'm happy to say that both have been fixed. Please come back again so you can experience our extremely high standards for cleanliness.

Hard to beat this house!

  • 5 of 5

This property was about as good as it gets. Everything was clean, the house was well stocked with supplies and it was absolutely gorgeous. The spa was running when we arrived, the owner, Barbara, communicated with us before and during the trip to makes sure everything was great. The house was even better than described and there was nothing that we were disappointed in or felt was not left out of the description. The property was very roomy, beautiful view, not hard to get to. You will not be disspointed in this VRBO!
