Laughing Fox

This property is no longer on our program


Cozy up in your lovely 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom chalet in the beautiful Big Canoe Community in Dawsonville, Georgia (home to the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame). With space to sleep up to 6 guests, Laughing Fox is perfectly sized for a fun family vacation to the lake or a weekend with friends in the mountains. This charming home is outfitted with all you need for a great stay in North Georgia, including the comforts of home, entertainment, cozy spaces, and beautiful, lush surroundings. 

This secluded escape is close to the amenities of Big Canoe while still being tucked away from it all. You’ll be perched among the trees as you stroll the deck for some fresh air, cozy up in front of the wood-burning fireplace, stream your favorite shows with Netflix on the big screen TV, whip up meals in the full kitchen, or toss some burgers on the grill. 

While the outside of Laughing Fox offers rustic charm, the inside is modern and fresh. Natural, light colors pair with sleek appliances, elegant furnishings and decor, and lots of large windows framing the tree-studded views. Relax on the gorgeous glassed-in porch while watching TV, brew some coffee before a day on Lake Petit, or come back to just cool off with air conditioning after a summer day at the swimming pool or an afternoon exploring and hiking along the Appalachian Trail. Bedrooms are welcome retreats as well, with 1 king-size bed and 2 queen-size beds. 

Living Room

Stylish and comfortable, the gorgeous living room of Laughing Fox boasts a beautiful wood ceiling, an antler chandelier, a big screen TV, a modern fireplace, a comfy sofa, tabletop lamps, and a beautiful leather chair with a footstool. This space exemplifies modern mountain luxury, welcoming you in to unwind and reconnect with family and friends. 

On cool days, get a crackling fire going in the wood-burning fireplace. Fall days at this rental home will feature rich autumnal hues through the large picture windows, and summer days are bright and green. When you want to just kick back, flip on the big screen TV above the fireplace. It features local live TV and Netflix, so you can stream your favorites or turn on a movie or cartoons for the kids. It’s also a great place to read a book and enjoy the peace of Big Canoe. 


Decked out with all you need to make great meals, snacks, and drinks, the fully equipped kitchen features stainless steel appliances, dishes and glasses, mugs, utensils, and cooking tools. Brew a single cup with the Keurig or make coffee for the group with the drip coffeemaker here. Find an oven with stovetop, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, plenty of counter space for prepping, and a double sink overlooking the glassed-in porch. 

Easily whip up breakfast before a day outside, pack a picnic lunch to enjoy with lake views, or make a great holiday meal. Open to the dining area and living room, this kitchen makes it easy for guests to cook and snack without missing out on time together. 

Dining Area

There are 3 bedrooms in all, with a king bed in one bedroom and queen beds in the other 2 bedrooms. There is space to sleep up to 6 guests here, great for a family or some friends.

Outdoor Spaces

As soon as you arrive at your vacation home, you’ll be greeted by the charming exteriors.

Then make your way around the deck to enjoy the great outdoors.

An open space on the deck features padded seating and a gas grill for cookouts on nice days. A gravel walkway leads around to the back of the home where a lovely bench overlooks the wooded views. Upstairs, the glassed-in porch is a light-filled space calling you to start days with a hot mug or end evenings with a glass of wine. Summer afternoons call for a glass of iced tea or lemonade as you chat and relax in the comfortable seating here. 

There is a table in the center for drinks, snacks, or the book you’ve been wanting to read. You can flip on the ceiling fan on a warmer day or turn on the flatscreen TV and watch some shows as you unwind.
