Slip away to Castaway Cottage, a 1,440-square-foot, 2-bedroom +loft, 2-bathroom vacation home in Big Canoe, Georgia. This pet-friendly property can sleep up to 8 guests, so it’s great for a fun family vacation or a weekend away with friends — with your precious fur babies by your side. Enjoy the comforts of home, serene views, and plenty of entertainment to make your Blue Ridge Mountain stay memorable.

Have fun in the game room with air hockey and ping pong before cozying up in front of the fireplace or big screen TV with your dog at your feet. Use the fully equipped kitchen to make breakfast and take advantage of the grill outside for lunch or dinner — with a table for outdoor dining. You’ll also have a washer/dryer at your Big Canoe rental, so you can pack light and refresh towels, linens, and clothes. 

Bedding at your North Georgia cabin includes 1 king bed, 1 queen bed, and 2 twin beds with trundles. Bonus: the primary suite has its own bathroom and a deck with a fire table. And with a top spot in the Big Canoe community, you’ll have access to swimming pools, tennis courts, a golf course, a fitness center, a spa, restaurants, and so much more. In fact, the Big Canoe Marina is only minutes from your cabin rental! 

Living Room
Between exploring The First Mountain City, adventuring in the Chattahoochee National Forest, and hopping vineyards in neighboring Dahlonega, unwind in front of the big screen TV in the living room at your Big Canoe vacation rental. Play Tic-Tac-Toe on the coffee table or clear the space for card games from home. And enjoy naptimes and cuddles with your partner on the plush sofa.

This bright and inviting living area offers wooded views during the day and cozy moments by the electric (heated) fireplace in the evenings of fall/winter. There’s also a ceiling fan to make the room even more comfortable in warmer weather. And you can open the next book in your favorite series while lounging in one of the armchairs, with the warm-lit lamps around the room.

Hungry? Thirsty? Mealtimes are important on vacation, so Castaway Cottage features a full kitchen with everything you need to prepare and serve food and drinks. 

Among the major and minor appliances, find a dishwasher and Keurig combo for single cups and full pots of your favorite hot beverages. The sink overlooks the serene trees outside. And you’ll have pots, pans, plates, bowls, cutlery, cooking utensils, mugs, wine glasses, and more for added convenience!

Dining Area
Bust out the board games between meals at the gorgeous log table with matching benches in the dining area. Located just off the kitchen, this dining space keeps seconds and dessert within a few steps! You can also open the glass doors for an indoor/outdoor dining experience on nice days. 

Rec Room
Sip on Georgia moonshine while hanging out in the rec room in the unfinished basement at your vacation rental in Big Canoe. Play fun rounds of air hockey and ping pong whenever you like! Or host a game tournament for the whole family or group of friends.

And there’s a cozy game area with a chess board and other board games for more fun on your North Georgia vacation.

Outdoor Spaces
When you’re not wandering around the impressive Gibbs Gardens or kayaking, paddleboarding, or swimming at Lake Disharoon, retreat to your own outdoor spaces to relax at your Big Canoe cabin. There are 2 decks with wooded and seasonal mountain views. 

Head to the main deck to light the gas grill for Blue Ridge Mountain cookouts and dine at the outdoor table with an umbrella. Off the primary suite, there’s a private deck with a fire table, great for wine sips and memorable chats in the fresh mountain air.
