After exploring downtown and the community, return to unwind at your Big Canoe rental with serene lake views.

Inside, you’ll appreciate loads of windows framing the views and natural light. Enjoy entertainment and conversation fireside in the living room and cook up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen without missing a beat in this open-concept space.

Eat together or set up board games from home at the dining table or venture to the rec room to watch Netflix in the media space or play foosball. When it’s time for bed, this Big Canoe rental delivers in comfort and privacy. A few bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms plus access to a deck or private porch, and there’s a mix of 1 king bed, 1 Olympic-long queen bed, 1 queen bed, and 2 twin beds for up to 8 guests.

Living Room
Step into the open-concept living area at your Big Canoe, GA, rental to kick back and relax by the lake. Windows line the main wall and showcase peeks of the mountains, towering trees, and beautiful lake scenes. Keep treats and soda pop on the tables and make every moment together memorable. 

When it’s chilly outside, light the gas log fireplace to make the space extra cozy with hot cocoa and a warm blanket. Chat with friends and family or crack open a new book. Better yet, plop on the sofa or curl up in an armchair with Netflix playing on the smart TV. 

Hungry? The kitchen at your lakeside Big Canoe rental is fully equipped with everything you need to prep and serve homemade meals as well as store leftovers from local eateries like the Montaluce Winery & Restaurant. You can cook hearty breakfasts, set out a lunch spread, bake cookies or pies, simmer dinner, and whiz up midnight margaritas!

Along with stone countertops, a tiled backsplash, an island with bar seating, and appliances — including a refrigerator, stovetop, oven, microwave, toaster oven, Keurig, and standard drip coffeemaker — you’ll have bakeware, pots and pans, dishes, glasses, cutlery, cooking utensils, and mugs. 

Dining Area
Just off the kitchen space is the welcoming dining area that boasts a large wooden table with matching chairs to complement the country-chic decor. Set the table for mealtimes with everyone and clear the space between meals for homeschool sessions, work meetings, card or board games from home, or arts and crafts.

Overlooking the tranquil Lake Petit, the sunroom at this cabin rental in Big Canoe features windows from floor to ceiling plus a lovely sitting area that invites YOU to relax. Curl up on the sofa and take a cat nap, sway in the rocking chair while reading a good book, or set out a cheese board and sip wine with friends. It’s a great space to let go and make memories. 

Rec Room
When you’re up for more fun, head to the rec room that features a cool foosball table! There’s a sitting area with another TV for entertainment and recliners to kick up your feet. An electric fireplace makes the space feel extra cozy in winter months, and there’s a table with chairs for added seating and function in the space. You can play cards and knock back a few Appalachian craft brews with friends.  

After hanging out at the Dahlonega Arts & Wine Festival, shopping at outlet malls, or adventuring in the national forest, bedtime will be on your mind. At this Big Canoe vacation rental, there are 4 bedrooms. Enjoy a hot shower or bath before slipping into your favorite pajamas and curling up for a good night’s sleep. You can flip on bedside lamps to stay up and read or chat with your partner and wake up to peaceful tree and lake views.

The main bedroom features a king-size bed, an en-suite bathroom, and a screened-in deck with a porch swing and table. The second bedroom boasts an Olympic-long queen-size bed with an en-suite bathroom that has a tiled walk-in shower with a seat. Last but not least, there is another bedroom with a queen-size bed that shares a bathroom with the fourth bedroom that has 2 twin-size beds.

Outdoor Spaces
When you crave the great outdoors, step onto the spacious covered or open decks at your secluded Big Canoe, Georgia, rental. Relax with a mug of coffee or tea or a glass of wine or champagne while taking in the fresh mountain air. There’s plenty of outdoor seating, and you can toss burgers, veggies, or steaks onto the gas grill for cabin cookouts in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Best of all, the panoramic views of Lake Petit and soaring trees are spectacular! 

Of course, the king bedroom has a screened-in deck with a porch swing and a table with chairs for another outdoor experience on your mountain retreat.
