From the stone details and rustic wood exterior to the beautiful, covered walkway and the welcoming rocking chair porch, your great Georgia vacation begins as soon as you pull up.
Inside, the gorgeous living room is ready for curling up with family and friends. A large, plush sectional sits by the stacked stone fireplace that features a big screen TV above it.

When you want to relax and unwind at your vacation home, kick back on the sofa on the glassed-in porch with trees all around. Or you can enjoy a soak in the bathtub, get some sun on the open deck, pop a movie in the DVD player, or take a short walk down to Lake Petit to sit in your chairs with a waterfront view.

Enjoy a cup of coffee at the lovely bench seating in the corner or have breakfast at the bar that features seating for 4. A modern rug in the kitchen is comfortable underfoot, and a skylight keeps it bright and welcoming here.
The dining table sits next to the kitchen and offers warmth to the space. The long wood table has bench seating on one side and chairs on the other – plus the ends. It offers seating for about 6 guests here. Enjoy meals together, whether it’s a hearty breakfast before a day of outdoor fun, an easy lunch on a day in the cabin, or a festive feast during the holidays.
When you’re done eating, clear the table for a game-night space. Bring your favorite board games, play card games, do a puzzle on a rainy day, or let the kids color and make crafts. It’s also the perfect spot for decorating gingerbread houses and holiday treats!
Want some sunlight, views of nature, and time to relax at your North Georgia rental home? The glassed-in sunroom is the perfect spot. Tree-studded views are framed all around, and there is a skylight above. Flip on the ceiling fan on warmer days or cozy up on the sofa and chat.
