About the property

Quaint 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Outdoor Firepit

Perfect cabin for couples, a family get away, or fun with friends in a small rural community . The cabin has been recently remodeled with new log siding and a beautiful new kitchen. Three bedrooms will sleep eight comfortably or 6 privately with 1 king, 2 queens, and 1 double bed. (Please Note--the master bedroom has 1 king bed and 1 queen bed, if privacy is a concern). All the bedding is brand new with an "old cabin" feel. All the beds offer a great nights sleep with new mattress toppers. The house has two full bathrooms. The master bath is brand new with a large spacious shower.

While at the cabin unwind with a good book, enjoy rocking on the front porch listening to the wildlife or playing games with friends and family. You'll find books, games, and movies at the house or bring your own favorites. Several Redbox vendors can be found in town as well. There is a new 42" flat screen TV in the living room with basic Dish Network including local Atlanta channels so you won't miss your favorite football game. There is also Netflix access & a DVD player. The master bedroom has a 32" television. Wi-Fi is available throughout the house.

For outdoor fun you'll find a new fire-pit to enjoy on a cool mountain evening. Why not roast some marshmallows while star-gazing! Or just enjoy relaxing and spending time with friends.

The brand new kitchen is beautiful with granite counter-tops and new hickory cabinetry. It is well stocked with all the necessary appliances for cooking meals. With a little notice we will accommodate special needs if possible. The floor plan is open, making it roomy enough for lots of help in the kitchen.

When you’re ready to venture out we are centrally located to many great adventures. We posted lots of great things to see and do in "Other Attractions & Activities". Be sure to note all of our favorite places to eat or maybe you'll find one to tell us about. To get you started though, downtown Blairsville is just a short 5 miles or so away. You'll find grocery stores and everything you need to stock up for your stay. Within a mile from the house you'll find a Dollar General and Chevron Station in case you've forgotten something. Murphy, NC is a short 30 minutes away, home of the new Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino Many other great places to visit are only a short drive away. You'll find lots of pamphlets in the cabin to help you get started.

Perfection in the North Georgia Mountains.

  • 5 of 5

Susan was the perefect hostess and it was clear that our happiness was her primary concern. She knew we would be arriving after dark and turned on lights so we would be greeted warmly on our arrival, and she called ahead to let us know about possible icy conditions. Imagine our pleasure as we first entered to see not only a beautifully decorated and well-equipped vacation home, but also a stunning lighted Christmas tree and other decorations! The cabin is cozy, comfortable and extremely well cared for. The pictures truly do not do the cabin justice. Excellent wifi, wonderful gas fireplace, the best mattresses EVER, great location... We could not have asked for more! The Sweet Dreams cabin will be our first choice on our next visit!

Great location and comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 adults and we had a great stay! Susan was very helpful and accommodating, an excellent host! The cabin was great for grilling out and playing board games. There was plenty of parking space and the front porch was great for a morning coffee in the rockers. The fire pit was really cute, but we didn't use it since it was warm out.

The cabin was less than half an hour drive from some of the best hiking trails in GA. It was nice to not be too far from civilization (WalMart is 10 minutes away) so you can get supplies or go out to eat. The 3rd bedroom has a double bed, so it was a little tight for two adults, but Susan reminded us of this ahead of time and we didn't mind too much. The furniture was comfortable and the place was spacious. The decor was really cute and unique. The place was clearly put together with care and attention to detail. The only thing I would change is to put cushions on the dining chairs.

Very welcoming and serene

  • 5 of 5

We felt instantly at home walking through the door. Nice yard and the house was great. Very roomy and comfortable. A lot of attention to detail in decorating. Gave us ideas of our own. :-) Nice wood floors felt cool in the heat of the day.

The neighborhood is very quiet. About the only thing we heard/saw was someone briefly driving their ATV across the road one morning.

If you are going to spend time preparing meals the counter space is limited but, we did fine. The TV was wall mounted and furniture angles for viewing were good save for the far end of the couch but, it was just the two of us so, no problems. Our favorite spot was the master bedroom. You could play basketball in there! Huge. Plus lots of closet space. We only slept on the king-size bed, which was really nice. We might suggest replacing the commodes with more modern, taller ones but, not a big deal. Both bathrooms had plenty of space. The laundry room was great, too. Very convenient.

Our hosts stopped by to say hello and chat for a bit, which was nice.

We really would like to relocate to the area. There's nothing like being in the mountains. It's a post card no matter which way you look.

All in all a great stay and we would definitely return and recommend.

Downtown Blairsville
Car: recommended

Blairsville is a small town at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The views as you travel the area rival anywhere in the world. The area enjoys four distinct seasons so there is always something new and different regardless of the time of year.

It is a haven for outdoor enthusiast. Everything from hiking to mountain biking to fishing & boating to white-water rafting to horse back riding and more can be enjoyed here or within a short drive. Brasstown Bald, the highest point in the state of Georgia, is here in Union County. Vogel State Park is a beautiful place for a picnic and a walk around the lake. There are also several challenging trails inside the park. Throughout the year the park hosts many fun events such as their Mountain Music Festival and Christmas Tree Lighting. Be sure to check their calendar during your stay. Another great spot is just up the road. If your up for a strenuous mountain hike the views are spectacular from Blood Mountain, a section of the Appalachian Trail.

For white-water rafting we are within a short drive of the Ocoee River, home of the 1996 Summer Olympics, with Class III-IV white water and the Nantahala River with Class II-III white water. Both provide an exciting and fun-filled adventure.

Nottely Lake just down the road can provide hours of water fun. Pontoon boats and jet skis can be rented locally or bring your own boat. There is plenty of room for parking on the property and several places to put in within a short drive. If fishing is what your after Chatuge Lake in Hiawassee is a better bet. Or nearby Toccoa River is known for it's fly-fishing. If you've been wanting to try your hand at it there are guides that would be glad to show you the right spots. If going it alone be sure to check the water release times as it is part of the TVA system and the water can become rapid quickly.

During the summer and fall months the local Farmer's Market is a special treat.There you can find in-season local produce as well as a variety of handmade crafts. It is open Tuesday from 2 pm to 6 pm and Saturday from 7 am to 1 pm. If you find yourself free on Thursday or Friday the Trash & Treasure sale can be a fun way to spend some time. You never know what you'll find! It is also hosted at the Farmers Market. The hours are 8 am to 1 pm.

Meek's Park, one of the most beautiful parks in North Georgia, is another great place to visit with over 5 miles of walking trails, a playground, pavilions and picnic tables. It is home to the Scottish Festival, Sorghum Festival and the award winning Butternut Creek Festival. It also houses the counties recreational department with playing fields, tennis courts, and pool. The walking trails connect to our local dog park found on the campus of North Georgia Technical College. There you can also find a disc golf course.

Golf courses abound as well. Two local courses, Butternut Creek and Old Union are both excellent. And within a thirty minute drive are Brasstown Valley in Young Harris and Cherokee Hills in Murphy, NC.

If shopping is what you're after there are many boutique style shops, as well as an abundance of thrift stores and antique shops. Many find our local Flea Markets a fun way to spend an afternoon. If your looking for outlet shopping, North Georgia Premium Outlet is in Dawsonville approximately 50 miles away.

How about a Spa Day? There are two excellent spas nearby. Serenity in the Mountains located in Blue Ridge is a full service spa including a hair salon. They are known for their excellent service and relaxing atmosphere. Equani Spa at Brasstown Valley Resort in Young Harris can also provide a variety of services. The views from their terrace are an added treat.

Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino in Murphy, NC is just a short 30 minute drive away. Or maybe you'd like to take a train ride.... Blue Ridge Scenic Railway is nearby.

These are but a few of the many, many things to do and see while visiting the area. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Whether your looking for the best stable to enjoy a horseback ride or where to find the nostalgic drive-in, we are glad to help.
