Gorgeous and inviting from top to bottom, Gnome Mountain is a 1,800-square-foot, 3-bedroom +loft, 3-bathroom cabin rental in Big Canoe nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Dawsonville, Georgia. Windows from floor to ceiling welcome you as you step inside to find a heaven-reaching fireplace, cozy furnishings, a fully equipped kitchen, and a lovely dining area with views of the tranquil trees. Kick back and relax with a snack, a warm beverage, and friends or family beneath the impressive antler chandelier and exposed beams in the main living space. 

For more fun, spread out into the rec room that has another gas fireplace and a sectional to hang out and chat or read your favorite book. You can even mix cocktails at the wet bar or keep snacks on hand in the mini-fridge. The kids can play checkers or chill in the loft with 2 twin beds and another space for activities. And you can always take in the fresh mountain air on the open or screened decks at this Big Canoe rental. Sway in the rockers with morning coffee beneath the treetops or fire up the gas grill for a barbecue together!

Playing at your Big Canoe cabin or exploring the many amenities within the community — including playing golf or tennis, swimming at the outdoor pools, pontoon boating or fishing at the lakes, strolling along miles of hiking trails, working out at the fitness center, and unwinding in the community hot tub or sauna — can leave you feeling tired. Enjoy a bath in the garden tub or a hot shower, say goodnight to friends or the kids in the loft with twin beds, and slip away to your queen bedroom (1 is a murphy bed). At this cabin rental in Big Canoe, you’ll also have a washer and dryer, high speed Wi-Fi, and convenience to local fun!

Living Room

Begin your memorable family vacation or a mountain getaway with friends in the warm and welcoming living room at this Big Canoe vacation rental in North Georgia. The ceiling and stacked stone (gas) fireplace reach high, showing exposed wood beams and beautiful architecture. There’s even a giant antler chandelier that channels those classic cabin vibes. Plus, the wall of windows lets in tons of natural light and serene views of the towering trees. 

Flip on the lamps around the room to make evenings cozier with a glass of Waldmet Cellars wine or a jar of Dawsonville moonshine.  Kick back in the recliners with a riveting book or pile on the sofa with the kids. Keep treats and drinks on the coffee table to munch anytime. And light a roaring fire on chillier nights in the mountains. 


Whether you stopped by the community grocery store or grabbed produce from a North Georgia pumpkin patch, the kitchen at your Big Canoe, GA, rental features all the tools and appliances you need to whip up something tasty! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and midnight snacks are all options at this Blue Ridge Mountain vacation rental. 

Keep fresh ingredients in the fridge, move the rollable island where it makes sense for you, and brew pots of coffee anytime. Reheat leftovers in the microwave, stir fry or stew on the stovetop, and bake goodies in the oven. There’s even a farm-style porcelain sink and a stainless steel dishwasher to help clean up!

Dining Area

Tucked into the kitchen space in the large log dining table that looks as if Mother Nature herself designed it. Situated in front of floor-to-ceiling windows, every meal at this table comes with beautiful tree views. It’s a nice spot to sit down for mealtimes together, enjoy dessert with coffee and friends, or make arts and crafts — inspired by the Dahlonega Arts & Wine Festival. You can even bring a few board and card games from home to play or turn this table into a temporary work or homeschool station as needed.

Rec Room

Want more space to spread out and hang out? The den, aka the rec room, offers a comfortable place to chill with your family and friends or sneak away from your group for a spell. Plop on the cozy sectional to unwind with snacks on the coffee table and a crackling fire in the lovely gas fireplace. Better yet, head over to the wet bar with a sink and mini-fridge to craft cocktails and serve drinks at the quaint bistro table. You can also play chess under the staircase.


Shopping downtown, hiking trails in the national forest, or playing golf in the community demands quality time to rest and relax at the end of the day. At your Big Canoe cabin rental, there are 3 bedrooms with queen-size beds (1 murphy bed) and a loft with 2 twin-size beds, sleeping up to 8 guests. Each mattress features a pillowtop for added comfort while you dream on your mountain retreat. There’s even a garden tub in the main bathroom, so you can take spa baths with bubbles, bath teas, or soothing salts. 

Outdoor Spaces

At this semi-private rental home in Big Canoe, you’ll have wooded views all around. Enjoy the peaceful scenery from the screened-in deck or the open deck under the sky. Sip morning coffee in the chairs or rockers and fire up the gas grill anytime for a fun cookout with family and friends. Another convenience on your North Georgia getaway is the flat and paved driveway with parking for up to 4 vehicles.

Other Amenities

Within Gnome Mountain, you’ll have 4 TVs with cable and Netflix, so you can watch movies and shows with bowls of buttery or parmesan-topped popcorn. Tap into the complimentary Wi-Fi that’s high speed for added convenience anytime. You can also toss loads of towels, linens, or clothes into the washer and dryer as needed, just like you could at home. Please note this house rental is not pet friendly. 

Community Amenities

Well, in-cabin amenities aren’t the only benefits of staying at this Big Canoe, Georgia, rental! Within the gated Big Canoe Community, you’ll have access to loads of amenities — including a 27-hole golf course, 16 tennis courts, 4 swimming pools, a fitness center, a hot tub, a sauna, and a $7-million-dollar clubhouse. There are also 3 wedding reception venues, a post office, and more areas to explore!

Splash at 3 lakes with kayak, paddleboard, and pontoon boat rentals plus stunning lake views. Make your way along 10 hiking trails throughout your stay and check out a couple of cascading waterfalls, too. You can grab fresh food items at the grocery store or stop by one of the restaurants. At this Big Canoe rental in the North Georgia Mountains, boredom just isn’t a thing.

While some community amenities in Big Canoe are free, others may require an on-site fee — please note this is not included in the rental price.

Wahoo! It’s time to put on a helmet, climb into your racing go-kart, and zoom at high speeds at the Atlanta Motorsports Park, aka a motorsports playground!
