Great Location - Trust the Pictures

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for the annual vacation for my extended family (7 adults - 2 small children). This place is outstanding. It was clean and ready when we arrived. Everything you will need is in the home and the owner left a canoe for our use; an added perk. We have plans to return in the future. The owner was super to work with and extremely cooperative. All-in-all, a wonderful renting experience.

Paradise by the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had three generations staying at the beautiful home by the lake. The location of the home in Big Canoe is convenient for coming and going. The floorplan was spacious and worked great for our family. The adults stayed on the main floor and each comfortable bedroom has its own bathroom. The children slept downstairs where it was equally comfortable. There was a pool table and games. There were plenty of towels and washcloths and a large washer and dryer. The canoe provided some nice time on a beautiful lake. We saw deer, chipmunks and squirrels. We recommend this place and plan to come back.

Wonderful Home for Christmas with the family

  • 5 of 5

Spent Christmas week with family (from 5 states) in this well appointed house with plenty of room for everyone, and a kitchen with everything you could possible need. The bedrooms were comfortable and we enjoyed the living room which was large enough for our entire group. Quiet neighborhood which is close to everything Big Canoe has to offer, with beautiful view over the water.

Perfect Mountain Getaway for our Family

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this gorgeous home! It was a wonderful weekend spent with family celebrating our daughter's birthday. We spent most of the weekend out on the patio with a picturesque view of the lake. We stayed in and cooked each night and had everything we needed from the fully-equipped kitchen. I would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a relaxing vacation home that is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta. I wish we could have stayed longer! Maybe next time... Thanks so much Jeff and Patti!

TGOF(The Gift of Family)

  • 5 of 5

The home had everything you would need at your fingertips. There was ample room for our family of 14. The pictures of the home did not disappoint, simply amazing!! There are activities for the kids for an additional cost but worth it. There is a wonderful botanical garden less than 15minutes away (Gibbs Gardens) absolutely a must see. The location is perfect for a week or weekend stay, whatever you choose there is something available to do. We enjoyed the home immensely. Jeff was a pleasure to work with and prompt in responding to any question you might have. I highly recommend this home!
