About John Alexander

I was born and raised in Atlanta. My wife Janie was born in Atlanta and raised in Mableton Ga. We have been married for 36 years. We met in high school. We had all 4 of our boys during the 80's and did the most of our raising of them during the 90's. All the while I was preparing for ministry. We started our church in 1994 and have been full-time ever since. Please visit Church On The Word on facebook. Our sons are grown now and are all quite successful. The two middle boys are still very handsome and eligible bachelors! The oldest and youngest of them have married the most beautiful girls in the world. 3 Grandsons and 2 Grand daughters grace our landscape now. We live in Douglas county and this cabin is our 2nd home.

In 2006 I found this unfinished log cabin and finished the build out over time. The pic is of our grandsons catching catfish in the pond.

The Lord has blessed us beyond description and we wanted to share our cabin blessing with others.

John Alexander purchased this cabin in 2006

Why John Alexander chose Cave Spring

I was looking for a prayer cabin when I found this place in the spring of '06. It could have been anywhere I suppose but when I came to Cave Spring, I was so struck by the peace that was here I just had to build it! As it stood, the cabin was an unfinished shell with only a metal roof . No plumbing, electrical, cabinets, windows... nothing! It was just the challenge I was looking for. With some qualified help and a lot of gumption we finished it a year later!

For us, some places in N.Georgia were beautiful but seemed overrun with merchant marketing. Cave Spring offered festivals periodically throughout the year like the small towns of yesteryear. It just better suited us.

What makes this cabin unique

The view of the river channel behind is spectacular! It can be seen from the kitchen or dining windows as well as the back porch. The peace is nearly unimaginable. If you experience it you will live longer without a doubt!!

Lay down and take a long nap! Once you are here, you are hidden. Out of sight and out of mind!

The pure water that flows from the cave spring has been found to be some of the purest in the country and is also the water that you will find here @ the cabin. We are one of more than 700 customers that our city serves at the water department. Try it for yourself! Taste the water right out of the faucet! I'm sure you will find it to be better than any bottled water you could buy at the grocery store! Fresh, cold and pure! One of the unique features of this cabin property is the fact that it has two waters on it. The catfish pond is 80' x 150' and deep at the north end! Down the slope in back is a floating dock on Big Cedar Creek that is navigable to the Coosa River and Lake Weiss. So, just because you're back from your boat outing doesn't mean you have to stop fishing. The pond is only 20' away from the porch deck! Private and peaceful this is not a cabin in a community of other rentals. It's all by itself!

Great weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time. Very peaceful setting. Loved the convenience of the boat launch down the road. Had a great time on and off the water. Fisherman's heaven. Extremely cozy cabin. Neat as a pin. We loved the movie selection for the rainy nights. Can't wait to return.

Thank You John & Janie

  • 5 of 5

We, my nephew and I, had a great time at your cabin. The fishing was very good. We caught thirty catfish (12-16 inches) and 10 nice bream. We threw about twenty back because of size. Two broke our line. We did not leave the place for three days. We ate fish, talked, laughed and reminisced about the old days and also discussed the future. It was a good time after so many pity parties I have been having after the passing of my wife, partner, friend, shadow and lover for 61 years. My wife and I had been to cabins in Boone, NC, Gatlinburg, TN, Helen, GA and so on including about 25 cruises and visiting 42 different countries together. I have nothing negative to say concerning our stay It is small but very adequate for the price. If you want fancy then pay the fancy price. Thanks again!

God Bless you both, see you in the Rapture!!

We had an amazing time on our trip. The cabin is lovely. The view, the firepit, the location were all incredible. The owners were wonderful and kind to work with and we had a stressfree trip from start to finish. Thank you so much for sharing a piece of your heaven with us. We hope to return soon.

This log cabin is unique in many ways. There are two waters on the property! A Catfish pond on one side and a river in back. Two country porches adorn this very quiet and private place. Brushy Branch boat ramp is less than a mile away.

Cave Spring Ga. is truly one of the state's best kept secrets. A very small town that has everything for comfort and convenience but has not been so "commercialized". You will feel a Blast From The Past as you drive through the old town. Revisit a by-gone-era in the modern day. Rich in Native-American history, Cave Spring Ga. boasts a pre-historic pure - water spring that flows continually out of a mountain cave. Once the home of the Georgia Cherokee Nation, Chief David Vann kept his people in this peaceful valley for many generations. The cave and the mountain spring is all that remains of a people forced to migrate west after President Andrew Jackson ordered what became known as the "Trail of Tears". Visit the original "Trail" and drink the water from the spring. The State of Ga. tests the water regularly and has found it to be among the purest in the country; even as pure as the waters that flow from the mountains of Colorado! Antique stores, gift shops, restaurants and beautiful Rolater Park await you. Don't forget to stop by The Blue Willow consignment shop and see my friends, Linda and Wayne. Browse through the General Store at the stop light and talk to Mr. Charles Ledbetter. Tell'm all that Pastor John and Janie sent you. Please visit the official website of Cave Spring Ga. and plan your visit during one of our many festivals that take place in the downtown area during the year. Learn of our rich history before you visit. Only 15 Minutes from Rome Ga., another city rich in history, has all the national merchants. When you get back to the cabin, slow down and enjoy the absolute PEACE that will be uninterrupted. Once you experience that, You'll be back, I guarantee you!
