"We just spent 4 nights at Rosemount Manor - my wife, my two sons (16 and 18), myself, and our dog. It was fantastic.
The cabin is very nice. I think my favorite part is the massive screened in back deck. HUGE. And it's completely screened in, even the underneath. In four nights of playing cards to the wee hours, we didn't deal with a single bug. We even saw deer wandering through outside the fenced in yard.
The bedrooms, especially the master, are very comfortable. In the guest bedroom, there's a loft with a pull down ladder. It might not be every adult's cup of tea (especially if you get up a couple times a night to use the restroom), but my sons thought it was cool.
The yard is a dog's dream. It's large and basically built onto the side of a hill. Best of all, it's completely fenced in. I walked the perimeter. I don't know how any dog could escape. You're on a mountain, so tunneling isn't an easy option. And the fence is high. Bottom line is that I think you could leave any dog(s) out there to play without any worries of them wandering off.
The location is great. There are a few short trails you for evening walks that you can access right from the property. My wife's favorite was one that went to the road, where thousands of fireflies would then leave their bushes as you walked by. You are also pretty close - 7 or 8 miles - from Murphy, which is a great little town. There's some really nice restaurants. Or if you want to do your own cooking back at Rosemount, there's a Wal-mart Supercenter and Ingles. That's what we did. Rosemount has a nice gas/sear grill. We did our own steaks, pizza, chicken and rice... all cooking at Rosemount.
It's a great area for boating. We both kayaked and rented a pontoon on Lake Hiawassee, about 20 minutes from Rosemount. Great times.
Bottom line is this is a great place for a family getaway, especially if you have a dog or dogs you want to bring along. Tom is extremely hospitable. I thank him for opening this home!
