About Joe Haban II

We are like most everyone else...busy professionals who enjoy the chance to get away to recharge. We dreamed of owning a mountain cabin for years and actively searched for the perfect place for three of those years. We hope that you will enjoy Laurel Lodge as much as we do.

Joe Haban II purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Joe Haban II chose Northwest High Country

Laurel Lodge is the perfect fit for us. From it's setting and long-range mountain view to the hand crafted features, it 'spoke' to us right away. We love the laurel branch and hand-hewn timber railings, the large picture window in the dining nook, the views from both porches and the way the stars fill the sky at night. Welcome to Laurel Lodge, ya'll!

What makes this cabin unique

The details are what matter to us. The handcrafted laurel branch deck and stair railings, the huge picture window in the dining area, and the wide plank pine flooring set the stage. We had been collecting cabin decorations for a number of years in anticipation of one day owning a place like Laurel Lodge, so it was the perfect match for us.

Girl's Weekend

  • 5 of 5

A group of us spent the weekend at Laurel Lodge. The accommodations were wonderful! The kitchen and bathrooms had everything that we could possibly need, the cabin was immaculate, the beds were very comfortable and the view was spectacular! We will definitely be going back in the future. Brian and Joe were very accommodating and easy to contact with a few questions that we had arise over our stay.

Was it really 5 Star??? YESSSSSS

  • 5 of 5

Loved Laurel Lodge & it was just enough out of the way to be somewhat secluded but easy enough to town. You are a guest in someone's house, not just a rental. Needed some honey- they had it, olive oil to cook an egg-check! Amazing views in a quiet mountainside. Just doesn't get any better! Close to Tank Town USA if you need an out of the ordinary experience... yes, hubby crushed a Chrysler New Yorker driving his own tank. The 40 minute drive to Crane Creek winery was some of the best views I've seen since New Zealand. Fantastic large cabin that felt like home and our weenie dogs smiled all week!

A Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Laurel Lodge and again it was completely perfect. We walked into an immaculately neat and clean house just as before. The house has all the amenities and is fully stocked with everything you could possibly want. The beds are comfortable and this house really feels like home. We love this home and hope to come back!

Cozy, Clean and Breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and another couple had a fabulous weekend away and the amazing Laurel Lodge. The pictures do not do this place justice. The views are spectacular and the accomodations are first rate. The lodge was clean and ready for our arrival.

Joe and Brian couldn't have been more helpful. They gave us great directions and it was easy to follow. Anything we needed - they answered and were extremely helpful. We wanted recommendations on places to eat, but ended up never leaving! Full stocked kitchen helped us prepare all of our meals.

If you are looking for a relaxing weekend - look no further. Everything has already been taken care of here at Laurel Lodge! We are already planning our next weekend here.

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I had never been up to the mountains in Georgia, and we wanted to a quick getaway for the weekend. We booked the weekend and were amazed at how nice the place is.

When we arrived the place was stunning. Joe and Brian clearly spent a lot of time making their cabin a home away from home. It was beautifully decorated, and I loved the fact that the entire place had a pleasant wood smell. The beds were lovely. It very much had a cabin feel to the place with all the comforts of a luxury hotel.

Joe was excellent at communicating with us to make sure we had proper directions to get to the cabin, which was great since my phone and car GPS systems didn't have the location correct.

All in all, the weekend was incredibly relaxing. We had everything we needed to cook our own meals. The hot tub was great, and the views were spectacular.

We had such a relaxing weekend getting away from the city. We will be back for sure!

Owner's Response: So glad that you had a wonderful first experience in our beautiful Georgia mountains and that Laurel Lodge played a part in that. It is our home away from home and we love it when others feel the same way about it. Come back soon!
