About Daniel Gross

Growing up, we always loved the woods of the North Georgia Mountains. We have travelled all over the world but always come back to North Georgia. You will too.

Daniel Gross purchased this chateau / country house in 2014

Why Daniel Gross chose Cleveland

We use the house ourselves and rent it to discerning, respectful guests who appreciate its beauty, charm and comfort and enjoy the privacy, peace and quiet.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Huntcliff Lodge is in a wooded hollow and is secluded and private. The Tesnatee river at your doorstep offers scenic beauty and the sound of clear, rushing water. The main house accommodates 7 guests and the adjoining 'Gingerbread House' offers privacy and room for 3 more with a kitchenette and private bath. There is room for gatherings and also to spread out for private conversations, meditation or reading.

Awesome place!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 6 nights. Wish we could have stayed longer. Very relaxing and beautiful scenery. Never would get the hot tub heater to work but we know those things can happen from time to time. Thanks again for sharing your home with us.

Perfect for a Family Get-a-Way

  • 5 of 5

Our family came to view the Solar Eclipse, which was amazing, just like Huntcliff Lodge. The setting was absolutely beautiful and everything was in excellent condition. Our kids loved the spa and the pool as well as the awesome waterfall just up the creek. The deck was a wonderful place to relax and read, make smores over the fire or to sip your morning coffee. We will definitely be back.

Great accommodations and very nice proximity to several local attractions.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit / stay. This is a beautiful home and worked very well as a vacation spot. If you can make yourself leave the house (and pool / hot tub), it is easy access to tubing, wineries, hiking, and more. The town (village) of Helen is also very neat.

Absolutely would stay here again if we visit this area in the future. The homeowner was easy to communicate with and andwered all of our questions.

We rented this house several years ago and enjoyed it. This time was just as nice. Some new furniture and yard work. Everything worked well, plenty of space for the family reunion. Daniel was easy to work with and prompt with questions. Will rent again.

Perfect North Georgia Mountains Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Huntcliff Lodge was perfect for our girl's weekend in the mountains! The house slept 10 people comfortably and we enjoyed hanging out by the pool. The living areas of the house were also nice, as was the kitchen. We brought all of our own food and found everything we needed to cook. Another side note - so great to have hair dryers under the sink in the bathroom! Out of our group of 10, only 2 people brought hair dryers so we definitely appreciated that. We went tubing in Helen and wine tasting at Wolf Mountain Vineyard and the cabin was perfectly located for everything we wanted to do. Thanks again for a great stay!
