About John & Sue LaFever & Morgan Carson

Our family business buys, rehabs, sells or rents homes. All 5 of our family members are active in our business. Originally from New York we moved to Georgia in 2006 and are here to stay. We are animal lovers with is why our home is pet friendly.

John & Sue LaFever & Morgan Carson purchased this house in 2015

Why John & Sue LaFever & Morgan Carson chose Jasper

We buy and sell about 30 homes yearly but when we saw The Buck Stop and the Big Canoe Community we knew that we could not sell it. Instead we chose to completely remodel and update the home, furnish it with all new beds and rustic furniture. Sitting on 2.6 acres The Buck stop is secluded and offers privacy but is close to all amenities.

What makes this house unique

Lots of wildlife to see. We sleep 13 in beds + 3 in the memory foam futon and pull out lounge. We once were surprised by 6 Black Bears hanging outside the terrace level. There is plenty to do for all ages. We are the next house on the right past the Jeep Trail (rated easy) which is a great place to drive in your 4 wheel drive to see the beautiful waterfall or hike. So much to do at Big Canoe ranging from golf to water slide. Full athletic facility with indoor tennis and racquetball also helped us decide that this property is desirable to a large range of people. We are so happy to offer The Buck Stop as your next vacation rental.

This weekend we had 11 adults use this space for a spiritual retreat and it was perfect - from the decorations to the accommodations.

Wonderful home. Great layout. Thoroughly impressed with all aspects.

  • 5 of 5

Would recommend home to anyone looking in Big Canoe. Short walk to trails. Great screened in porch and deck. Easily accommodated our party of 13. Downstairs area allowed for privacy and way to segregate our 15 year old and some friends. Great home!
