Our home is located on the side of Ivy mountain about 5 miles outside of Clarksville Georgia. The home is close to Helen Ga, Clayton Ga, and Mountain City Ga. There are several lakes close by also. Right up the road we have the Soque River which is famous for trout fishing.
Now, If you spend enough time on the decks, you may see many different animals. We have bears, ( Do not feed them) Fox, deer and some of the mountain people even say we have a Sasquatch out there somewhere. LOL.
The back roads are fun and beautiful to explore. You'll have no problem finding excellent places for your dining experiences.
Our home has three bedrooms and two and 1/2 baths
available for our guests.Master bedroom has a King bed.It also has a exercise bike. One bedroom has two twin beds. The other room has a queen. The mountain side of the master bedroom is all windows and you'll wake up to a beautiful view every morning. It has its own private bathroom. You have a door to the deck. The deck is a large wrap-around deck with table and a grill for cooking out. All the beds are new and comfortable. You have a large kitchen with everything you need for cooking and entertaining.
The home is equipped with an automatic Full house generator. So no matter what the weather you will always have electricity, AC,heat and water. Our most enjoyable times are when it snows and everything is so beautiful and quiet.
The roads are gravel and a little bit bumpy sometimes if it rains. Also the roads can be a bit dusty. Just wouldn't want someone to come up in their beautiful white convertible and get upset because the road is not paved.
The home next to our home is a real nice home. In fact he built our home and his own. Maybe he'll build one for you. They are just great people / neighbors.
The two cabins on the other side of the road , which I have blocked by trees are nothing to brag about.
All the folks on the mountain are real nice.
There are many activities going on within 5 to 30 miles. If you have young children, the famous Cabbage Patch Baby Land Hospital is a wonderful place to take them. If you enjoy fishing, there are private Guides or there are places along the river you can park and fish on your own.
Everyone enjoys Helen Ga. It's a German / Alpine Type Village. Helen offers entertainment, shopping, and some great places for your dining experiences.
You can also take off to the Great Smoky mountains if you want to go on a day trip. Another nice day trip is to Cherokee North Carolina where the Harrah casino is located and a lot of history and fun for thr whole family...
Tanger Outlet outside mall is only about 30 minutes from downtown Clarkesville.
Winter to us, can be the most beautiful time of the year, besides fall. When the all leaves fall off the trees, it's the perfect time for walking and exploring. Now the most magical time of the year is when it SNOWS....... We just love it and think you will also. Remember. No down time with power. Here's the bonus. If it snows so much and you have to spend another day because of the road. It's on me. So enjoy. You'll have Direct TV with DVR, for your enjoyment.
We truly believe you will love the accommodations and the wonderful view. Our home is not the typical rental vacation home. It has personality.

North Georgia at It's Finest!
Only two levels here, Great and Not So Bad. First the GREAT!:
- the accommodations are superb. Very modern country home with beautiful decor and Super comfortable beds in bedrooms. Brand new couch and love seat and more than enough room for up to 6 people to enjoy this lovely home. The pantry is filled with condiments and canned goods so do a quick check before going food shopping. The view from the deck is majestic at dusk and dawn. Ample space for our two dogs to sniff around in the back yard and enjoy nature! We even had snow (never a guarantee) on New Year's Day to cap a great 3 night Get-away. Great communication with Ron Smith (owner) regarding small issue with the TV. He and his wife exceeded my expectations with their welcome gift and the warmness of this home. Great lighting in and around the home.
And the Not So Bad:
-You're gonna encounter rural Georgia so be prepared to travel on narrow gravel roads leading up to the home which can probably get real messy with significant weather and may get challenging for smaller vehicles. It's dark, so unless you have experience driving through mountains at night, it might be in your best interest to get to the home before sunset. North Georgia is not the entertainment capital of the world. So if you want crowds and bad, overpriced foods and expensive attractions, go to Orlando. Here you'll get small towns with lovely, nice people, relaxation, and nature. THERE ARE BUGS IN NATURE! Even in the winter you may come across an occasional beetle or ladybug in the home. You are in the mountains people. Expect to see some of it. There are only a few homes within a stone's toss of the property so be prepared to be away from everything (at least for a little while).
All in all this is a place that I'd go back to in a heartbeat. If you are a big city dweller like me, this is the sort of place that can give you a wonderful reality check. With all the hustle and bustle of hectic city life, one tends to ignore the beauty of nature and how quickly it can soothe the soul with its peace and tranquility. Overlooking those woods and mountains from the porch, one can only marvel at God's work. Enjoy
Relaxing and beautiful!!
Great getaway near lots of little towns. House is beautiful and relaxing. Owners are fabulous!!
It was an amazing stay
Perfect for families, great views and all the comforts of home.
Great Family Weekend
Our family had a wonderful weekend. The view is beautiful. The owners are great to work with they go above and beyond to make you feel at home.
Perfect mountain country home
Beautiful view, close to everything, but far enough away to be very private and quiet. We could not have asked for a better place to stay! We loved it!
A slice of heaven on an uncertain path
Our reasoning for renting this amazing house was not for vacation we were evacuating!
Hurricane Irma was heading straight for Naples FL and I picked this due to the amount of people and dogs. I believe I was very blessed as Ron and Susan opened their home in our hour of need. Once we got here a sigh of relief came over all of us... the view is breathtaking and no picture will ever do it justice, our first morning watching the sun come up ..... Awesome!
The house is beautiful, the rooms are clean and spacious, the kitchen and the living area have the view, the best room in the house is the porch which is where my husband and I spent most of our time, the kids and the dogs spent most of thiers in the huge garden.
The town itself is small and friendly to include every neighbour that we met greeted us with a friendly smile.
Irma did catch up with us, however this house has superhero powers! Yes we went through a tropical storm and we lost power but that is when the generator kicks in automatically!!!!!!!
My husband and I will be returning under different circumstances to enjoy more of what this place has to offer.
We will always remember this place fondly as it is the answer to "where were you when Irma hit?"
I cannot thank Ron and Susan enough, the owners are so easy to talk to and care about your stay and nothing was too much trouble. We did not need or want for anything.
