About the Property

Log Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Sleeping Loft, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Nestled in the Blue Ridge chain of the Appalachian mountains in the shadow of Pickens Nose Mountain, North Georgia mountain cabins are just 5 miles from Dillard, Georgia; a very unique log cabin vacation rental hideaway. The lure of these early 1800's Appalachian style log rental cabins in this setting is irresistible. Let your mind slip back in time. As you approach our cabins, you'll admire the hand-hewed craftsmanship that was used by the early Appalachian settlers and is still being duplicated today.

Massive hemlock logs with their dovetail notched corners and chinking, exposed ceiling beams held in place by wooden pegs, a sleeping loft, pine floors and tin roofs form these primitive style homesteads. The charm of the 1700's and 1800's, but with all of the conveniences of today.

The road ends at our secluded hideaway, meaning- there is no through traffic. Our property joins Betty's Creek (one of the most pristine, beautiful creeks in the area) and extends up Brushy Ridge Mountain where we join the 24,500 acre Southern Nantahala Wilderness and Standing Indian Wildlife & Bear Reserve.

A marked trail leads from our cabins west to join the scenic Appalachian Trail at Betty's Creek Gap (about 1 1/2 hour hike). There is an abundance of wild flowers in this Appalachian Rainforest from early spring until November; flowering trees, flame azaleas, mountain laurel, rhododendron, the many varieties of ferns, the clear tumbling streams; all add delight to your visit in all seasons. If you plan on day hiking, don't forget a raincoat or parka.

Wild turkeys come to the creek daily to drink. Other wildlife using our property and the adjoining wilderness include: bear, white-tailed deer, raccoon, skunk, fox, squirrels, eagles, grouse and an array of songbirds.

When you come to Turnstone Log Cabin, be prepared to relax, rock in our high-backed porch rockers, smell the clean mountain air, sit on huge rocks or your deck beside the creek and let your cares drift away. Maybe you'll spot a wild turkey. Perhaps you'd enjoy fly-fishing for rainbow trout at a nearby trout pond; it's just down the creek and you don't even need a license. (You gotta try grilled rainbow trout; a real mountain treat.) or spend the afternoon walking the marked and maintained mountain trails through the wilderness area or along the creek. NO Pollution, NO Crowds, or Schedules to keep.

Be sure to bring a sweater or light jacket even in the summer, since the evening temperature often drops below 55 degrees. The valley and creek are bathed with a very cool evening breeze coming down from the 5000 foot high surrounding mountain peaks.
