About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Leaf Season is approaching - We still have some availability for September and October. This is a colorful season for Dahlonega, and the area surrounding our cabin.

This unique cabin overlooks a large flowing white water creek and is adjacent to the national forest. The cabin features a wrap around deck with outstanding views of the rushing water. Located on the deck is an eating area and a gas grill with stairs leading to a pathway to the water. At night you can sit on the deck in the darkness and watch the fireflies and the stars. To reach the cabin, you pass through our family farm, past our cattle, the barn, and a pond for fishing. Look out for deer and wild turkeys. This is a hikers paradise; there are numerous trails from easy to difficult on our 200 acre farm where the cabin is located, and even more as you hike into the national forest and reach a water fall just a short hike from the cabin. Inside the cabin, the great room and master bedroom are located on the upper floor. The great room features a vaulted ceiling, a comfortable living room with a large stone fireplace (we provide the wood), an open kitchen and dining area. The master bedroom is spacious with a king sized bed and a seating area that connects to the deck; a lovely place for a first or second honeymoon. It has its own private bathroom. The lower level can be reached by a stairway from the upper floor or via an entrance that opens directly into a mudroom that is a great place to leave hiking shoes, wet bathing suits and fishing rods. The lower level features a large multi-purpose room with a queen bed, a twin bed, a game table (with lots of board games),and a seating area. Also there is a bathroom and a large closet and storage room. Whether you want a romantic getaway or a family adventure, this is a great place to get away from it all. Take time to enjoy your family and the art of conversation. Cuddle up with a book in front of a warm fire or play board games with your kids. If you need some diversion, we now offer Satellite TV, plus an assortment of DVDs and movies for adults and children. We do not provide wifi, but, we have great cell phone reception. As remote as one feels, this cabin is located in the middle of wine country and only ten minutes from downtown Dahlonega. While here, make reservations for brunch at one of the wineries and make sure to visit the great restaurants and shops in Dahlonega. Wonderful day trips to Helen, State Parks and the Appalachian Trail are within a few miles.

About Anita and Guy Middleton

We developed the farm beginning in 1978 and have raised cutting horses and cattle for most of those years. We built the cabin overlooking the beautiful Yahoola Creek in 2002 for family use. Now through VRBO and Home Away, we want to share it with others.

Anita and Guy Middleton purchased this cabin in 1978

Why Anita and Guy Middleton chose Northeast Mountains

We bought the 200+ acres to raise our children and to develop a cattle and horse operation. The farm and the community have been a wonderful place to live.

What makes this cabin unique

Coming to the property and the cabin is like stepping back in time. Nature surrounds you, and you can experience the beauty of the Yahoola Creek as the Cherokee Indians did some 200 years ago.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Guy & Anita are some of the nicest people we have ever met! They are great hosts who are just a call away if needed! They greeted us with homemade delicious cookies. Their secluded cottage sits on a hill in front of a mesmerizing rushing creek. We ate on the front porch every night enjoying it with a glass of wine. The cottage is very nicely decorated & stocked with all that one would need. The deep well spring water from the facet is cold & very good to drink; & to shower underneath it, makes your skin feel soft. The relaxing time we spent there was just what we needed. It is only about a ten minute drive to the cute town of Dahlongena, GA & nice wineries nearby for tasting.

Thank you so much Guy & Anita for your hospitality,

Owner's Response: We started renting our white-water cabin a little over a year ago. And we have really enjoyed the process. Everyone who has stayed with us has been delightful and each group has their own story. I always took our wonderful water for granted - but until lately I haven't said anything about it until one of our guest said it would be nice if we provided some bottled water. That's when I told them about our great spring water. So thanks, Diane and Jim for sharing that. We loved having you. Anita and Guy

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Anita and Guy were wonderful hosts. We arrived at the property much later than anticipated but despite the late hour Anita and Guy drove us out to the cabin and ensured that we were well settled in for the night. Anita even gave us a batch of home made cookies which didn't make it through the night ;-) My friends and I enjoyed a wonderfully tranquil stay. It was lovely to be able to walk by the creek and along the farm road in the mornings and enjoy coffee on the deck with the relaxing sounds of the waters of the creek.

We cherish the different personalities that grace our cabin. Anita and Guy

Our cabin is located five miles north of Dahlonega, GA. Dahlonega is known as the first major gold rush in the United States. It is also home to the University of North Georgia which is known for its military program.

Dahlonega attracts tourist to shop in the quaint town, to attend Festivals and visit the numerous wineries in the area. The Appalachian Trail begins here. Great hiking trails are all over the region.
