This cabin is fully appointed with all the comforts and lodge decorating. From the moment you enter the great room with soaring ceiling and stone fireplace, you’ll feel right at home. No detail has been left out in this lodge.

The great room is completed with a cooks’ kitchen and dining nook with an amazing picture window that frames the multi-state, year-round mountain view. The front porch and upper deck are perfect for your morning coffee and taking in the warm daytime sun. Rounding out the main level of the cabin are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master suite features an en-suite bathroom with soaring ceiling.

Above the main level is a large loft with hand-hewn railings and laurel branches. The loft includes a sitting/reading area and a hand-made hickory desk.

The lower level includes a third bedroom and full bathroom as well as a large entertainment area where you can play ping-pong, board games and Wii. The large television includes a Blu-Ray player and Apple TV with Netflix and other streaming services. WiFi internet is available throughout the cabin and on the decks.

The area boasts some of the country’s best Class IV whitewater on the nearby Ocoee River. If a lazy trip down the river in an inner tube or canoe is more your speed, the neighboring Toccoa River is for you.

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 Mineral Bluff

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.

Well maintained cabin with lots of privacy

  • 5 of 5

This is a quiet, secluded cabin that is very well maintained by its owners. Well decorated and stocked with a wide variety of cooking and dining elements. We had a wonderful, restful getaway here over the New Year break. It was nice to have it decorated so wonderfully for the holidays. It was cold outside but the cabin was nice and warm. The wood burning fireplace was well stocked and clean. There is a nice space heater in the basement for added warmth when watching t.v. in the den. We have rented a number of times at other locations, and sometimes cabins have been rundown and not maintained, that is definitely not the case here. This was our first time renting at this location and we will definitely look at renting here again this summer.

This property was very clean and spacious. Had everything we needed . 2nd bedroom sheets were not clean and had hair on them. Not sure that is the fault of the owners.

Only thing we had wished for was in the area to have a fire was over grown . Otherwise this was a nice clean place well stocked. Owners were kind and helpful.

Outstanding! Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I finally had the opportunity to take a vacation together. Something we have tried to arrange for years. We could not have found any place more perfect. Thank you Joe and Brian for sharing your beautiful retreat and for allowing us to "re-connect" again. A priceless time together!! Highly recommend! We hope to have the opportunity to visit this beautiful place again.
