"For the past 6 years we have been traveling to Blue Ridge, GA for our Thanksgiving Holiday Break. Normally we have had family join us from both my husband and my side, kids, grandchildren, sisters, nephews, etc. So we would rent one the gorgeous cabins high in the mountains with 3 floors, pool tables, etc...views, wrap around decks. Always so enjoyable. But this year, it was just the two of us and we thought, "no, we did not need all that room for just us". So we began our search for just the right cabin to still give us the peaceful mountain life but just not all the space that we normally would have with more people! That brought us to Talking Leaves. I have to admit I was not all that keen on renting from owners because our very first experience in Blue Ridge was just that and we were totally disappointed. But after reading the reviews, and seeing the pictures, we made our decision to give it a try. We arrived around 2:50 pm after driving all night and believe me when I tell you, we were not disappointed. This cabin is just adorable and perfect for 2 - 4 people. We were welcomed with Holiday decorations, and a cute little "welcome" message in chalk on a chalk board on the coffee table. Everything you could want was here. The only little thing, the rope lights on the steps were out, so they might need to be replaced....but other than that, what a wonderful time we had. We had read that the road was hard to get up....only if you are not used to driving on mountain roads it can be a little challenging, but really, not at all! Just take your time and don't try to rush. Believe me, once you arrive the drive up is all worth it. We walked the roads every day and hiked. Really gives you a great opportunity to see the country, and a glimpse into other cabins in the area. Something we always like to do. Our dog so much had a great time. We took her bed and placed it in the living room and she slept in it all the time. Loved the fireplace and it kept her warm. We purchased fire wood and had a fire every night, so enjoyable, especially for us being from Florida. Temps were great and the cabin gave us the needed rest and relaxation that one could ask for. The kitchen is small, but so very user friendly. I could go on and on but please know, if you are thinking of renting this cabin, do so!!! You will not be disappointed at all!!! I hated to leave yesterday morning. We made fond memories of our stay at Talking Leaves. And they do talk!"
