About Robert Edmonds

We have two children in our family. I'm from Wyoming and my wife is from Alabama. We have a place to go at the beach and wanted a mountain getaway. I wanted a place closer than Wyoming where I could get closer to the mountains. We reside in Montgomery, AL.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My visit was for a girls weekend get away. We really enjoyed the closeness of some of the wineries, and downtown Helen. The house was amazing, and had some really nice views. The cabin had everything we needed from tv’s in all the bed rooms, down to the appliances and gadgets In the kitchen. The owner was easy to get in touch worth via the home away ap! Eveything was very neat and clean upon our Arrival. Our only problem was getting in and out of the driveway. It is very steep (this was not a surprise to us, as it is noted in the description) and we had a little trouble getting one of our bigger SUV’s backed out. I have a Ford Explorer and I was able to get out fairly easy with a little pressure on the gas.

Overall, I would absolutely book this cabin again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. It's good to acknowledge that the driveway is steep but manageable. It's something we had to give in order to get the beautiful scenery overlooking Unicoi State Park Mountains.

Our group of 6 ladies had an awesome time. Plenty of room for everybody. The only complaint, several lightbulbs were blown. Driveway was very steep.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay. There were a few minor things that could have been improved but the property had so many other things that at least 1 of the extra items it had you probably will forget to bring but don't worry because you're covered. Very peaceful. Very big and spacious. We had 6 people in our group and everyone was comfortable the whole time.

wonderful, except for the steep driveway

  • 4 of 5

Except for the scary steep driveway, the cabin was clean, beautifully decorated, warm , cozy, yet large enough for several people. There were five of us and we had plenty of room. I might put some curtains in the living room windows, but in the day the scenery was beautiful! I would come back and stay anytime.

Thank you ever so much.

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights here, and really enjoyed ourselves. Cabin is cozy with great views and plenty of space to spread out. We had 6 adults and a handful of kids and it never felt cramped. The only issue we had was the driveway being incredibly steep for us Florida people. Had there been snow or ice, we would have had trouble. You can’t fit more than 2 or 3 cars in the driveway, so plan accordingly. Beds were very comfortable, pack extra towels. We didn’t want to leave!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. You were fantastic guests. Although not the most convenient we often have three vehicles in the driveway with an overflow spot at the top if needed. Additional towels are available upon request and there is a full size washer and dryer available if needed for longer stays.
