Frank & Jeanie purchased this cabin in 2014
I wanted one last family vacation before my son left for basic training in the Air Force, and I could not have chosen a more perfect cabin. It is cozy with plenty of beds. We cooked all of our dinners there and the kitchen was nicely stocked. The outdoor gas grill was a plus. The boys and their girlfriends loved the hot tub and the fire pit. The views from the deck are breathtaking. I liked that it was easily accessible by car as well. Some cabins we have rented have been a struggle to get to.
The location is perfect. Blairsville is super close and so is Vogel State Park. We love looking for waterfalls and Helton Creek Falls is just a short drive from the falls at Vogel. There is a really good BBQ restaurant just a couple miles from the cabin when you head toward Blairsville. Overall, the cabin is centrally located. You are not far from Blue Ridge, Hiawassee, Helen and Cleveland, GA as well. We went to a festival in Hiawassee one day and went to Mercier's in Blue Ridge the next.
The living space was a little cramped. We had to bring chairs in from the dining room for us all to have a place to site, but that was really the only draw back. Frank was wonderful to work with. He had offered for us to come a day early since hurricane Matthew was heading toward our home. He had the cleaning crew come in a day early, just in case. He was very responsive to emails and texts. I would highly recommend this for some time away. There is nothing quite like the GA mountains in the fall!
My husband and three kids booked a stay at BIG PINE cabin before kids return to school. We found the decorating along with the fireplace so inviting and cozy, really had the "cabin in the mountains " feel we wanted. We enjoyed the hot tub which also has an outstanding view and so private. Kids were hoping to see a bear which are in the area but only saw deer...one being a big buck! Beds are comfortable and plenty to pick from. We cooked most meals at cabin and kitchen was well stocked. Frank was a great help with all our questions. Only tip I would add would be to add more board games to the your inventory. Thanks for the memories! Will be back! Julie C.
We have just been thrilled with our stay. Jeanie and Frank were so helpful and quick to answer any questions . My disabled husband and our 5 young children stayed at the cabin for a week. We actually had to add an additional day (today) because #winterstorm2017 hit Friday night and we received 6+ inches of snow! I wish I could post the pictures of the cabin and property covered in a brilliant white blanket of snow, it's truly magical. We can't get off the mountain today! Kinda secretly fun! This would be a good time to tell any winter renters that the county does NOT clear Owl Town Road or Self Mountain Road. The locals were able to warn us and for 2 days we have parked down the steep hills as to have access to our vehicle in case of an emergency, however the hike down and up is NO JOKE! It's also notable to say, during winter storm we never lost power or cable, the internet is absolutely wonderful as well. In the past 2 days of being "stuck" we have enjoyed the access to Netflix as a family.
During our week we enjoyed short day trips to Dahlonaga (underground mining tours) Helen (Ana Ruby Falls) and BrassTown Bald Mountain. Sunrise grocery sells THE best boiled peanuts around and you must meet Jason the owner. We love shopping at Alexanders too! The children hiked and played for hours in the woods surrounding the cabin and the jacuzzi was so very perfect and used nearly everyday. The cabin is quaint and clean. Beds are comfortable and my personal most favorite aspect was the gas fireplace (we used it every single day).
As usual, we enjoyed the stay so much it prompted our family to start looking at the possibility of buying a place here in Blairsville. I grew up during the Summers here and loved showing my children why we fall in love all over again with the mountain each time we are here.
Till next time,
For the first time in 35 years we decided to go away for Christmas, just my husband, our adult children and their spouses and myself. We chose this cabin specifically for the three bedroom areas. We thought it would be preferable for our married children to have their own spaces. Upon arrival, we were very impressed with the presentation of the cabin and we were quite tired from traveling all day and we went to bed early. The next evening when we were ready for bed, it became apparent that there were mice in the loft area. Using flashlights, we found much evidence in the form
of "droppings" on the floors and under the bed. Needless to say, no one slept in that room that night. The next morning, I contacted the owner and he said he would have it taken care of and "compensate" us. I tried, unsuccessfully, to find out if the issue had been taken care of. He never returned my emails and/or calls. We were unable to use the loft area for four of our five nights. This was a huge inconvenience and the cost of the three bedroom vs a two bedroom was significantly more. I am very disappointed that he never bothered to get back to us about the situation. My husband was also diagnosed with a terminal illness and this was our one chance to spend Christmas in the mountains.
The cabin was great! Short drive to nearby activities but just far enough away for the quiet, peaceful, privacy of the mountains. Definitely would stay again!
We loved our stay at Big Pine Cabin. There were 5 of us, but we hosted an additional 6 family members for Thanksgiving dinner. The cabin is very well decorated with a bear/woods theme. Everything looks just as it does in the pictures, including the stunning view. The hot tub was pre-heated for us, and there was plenty of propane in the grill. We did not get to use the fire pit because of a burn ban in the area, but that obviously wasn't the fault of the cabin owner. The cabin is very nicely secluded. We brought beach towels for the hot tub, but we didn't need them--the cabin is stocked with tons of towels. Beds were comfy, and everything was clean. If we find ourselves in this area again, we'll be back to Big Pine Cabin.
