Mountain Paradise

This property is no longer on our program


Slip away to your beautiful luxury rental home in the Big Canoe Community in Jasper in North Georgia – about 1 ½ hours from Atlanta. After you’ve spent the day at the 27-hole golf course, hiking the miles of trails to waterfalls, boating on Lake Petit, soaking up mountain views on a lakeside picnic, or playing tennis at the clay and hard courts within Big Canoe, come back to Mountain Paradise to eat, chat, relax, and reconnect with family and friends.

A charming exterior welcomes you to Mountain Paradise, set among lovely landscaping – and with the backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Step inside to find luxury furnishings, high-end finishes, modern amenities, and plenty of windows to make you feel swept away by nature on your mountain retreat. And with 2,900 square feet of space, 5 bedrooms, 5 ½ bathrooms, and space to sleep up to 10 guests, this Big Canoe vacation rental is great for families and groups of friends. 

Curl up in the living room in front of the wood-burning fireplace, flip on the new flatscreen TVs with Netflix and YouTube TV, whip up meals in the gourmet kitchen that’s fully outfitted, sit down for meals together at the dining table, relax on the lovely screened-in deck – with a fireplace, or enjoy a sunny day on the open deck with a dining table and a grill. At night, climb into the king and queen beds for some much-needed rest. 

Living Room

Open, fresh, and beautifully designed, the living room of Mountain Paradise welcomes guests to cozy up on the plush leather sofa, relax in the plump oversized leather chair, stay warm by the wood-burning fireplace, and flip on the new flatscreen TV to watch your favorite Netflix movies or YouTube TV shows. 

Enjoy the sunlight streaming in through the large windows all across the wall, flip on the ceiling fan or the air conditioning to stay cool in summer, and turn on the tabletop lamp to read a good book. After a day on Lake Petit, riding kayaks or pontoon boats, or exploring the miles of hiking trails, come back to this welcoming space to unwind. 


The gourmet kitchen is calling your name in this luxury house rental. A gorgeous gas range with an oven makes it easy to prepare delicious meals for your group. Keep plenty of fresh ingredients in the double-door refrigerator/freezer, brew coffee for yourself with the Keurig or a pot for the group with the drip coffeemaker, and reheat leftovers in the microwave. 

Guests can chat at the island while cooking, enjoy easy cleanup with the dishwasher, and even add steaks and kabobs to the meal with the new Weber gas grill on the deck. The full kitchen in this beautiful vacation home also offers plenty of dishes, glasses, utensils, and cooking tools for creating snacks, drinks, and meals in this mountain getaway. 

Dining Area 

Gather as a group in the dining area that sits conveniently between the living room and kitchen. The space features a lovely wood dining table with seating for 8 beneath an elegant chandelier. Set the table for a hearty breakfast before a day on the lake, pack a picnic lunch at the table, or create a beautiful holiday tablescape. It’s a lovely spot to gather, and because of the open floorplan here, guests can enjoy each other’s company whether cooking, dining, or relaxing in the living room nearby. 

Media Room

Need some extra space beyond the living room? Get comfortable in the media room! This cozy space has a sofa, plush chairs, a reading lamp, a big screen TV with HD cable, some books, and a few games. Slip away for an afternoon nap, crack open a good book, or have your coffee or tea in peace in the morning. 


Each bedroom of Mountain Paradise is a welcome retreat after a day exploring North Georgia. There are 5 bedrooms in all, with pillowtop mattresses, quality linens, 5 ½ convenient bathrooms, and space to sleep up to 10 guests. Fall asleep in 3 king-size beds and 2 queen-size beds, with TVs in the bedrooms as well. Unpack in dressers, keep your phone or glasses on the nightstands, read by lamplight as the sun goes down, and enjoy your little retreat inside the home. 

Outdoor Spaces

Get out and enjoy the fresh air at the great outdoor spaces of Mountain Paradise. Arrive with ease with the flat, paved driveway here – plus parking for 2 vehicles. Then make your way to the deck for peaceful wooded views. The screened-in deck has a gas fireplace and comfortable seating, so you can cozy up here on cool nights. Avoid the elements as you chat and enjoy the lush trees all around.

The open deck lets you get some sun and offers great views. In fall, watch the landscape transform into rich reds, oranges, and golds. In spring and summer, listen to the birds flit around the trees. In winter, watch the snowfall and change your home into a winter wonderland. 

The open deck has a dining table for 6, so you can sit down for meals on nice days. Fire up the Weber grill and toss on some burgers, steaks, and kabobs. After a day at the community swimming pool, come back to unwind and enjoy a great meal among the trees.
