Our Happy Place in the Blue Ridge Mountains is now YOUR happy place on your next family vacation or getaway with friends in Jasper, Georgia. Along with amenities to relax and entertain at this 5-bedroom, 3½-bathroom cabin, you’ll have full access to a variety of things to do in the 8,000-acre Big Canoe Community. Splash at swimming pools, play golf or tennis, spot wildlife along hiking trails, rent pontoon boats or kayaks at the lakes, steam muscles in the sauna or hot tub, and grab something to eat at community restaurants. And that’s only the beginning!

Back at your Big Canoe rental, just off Lake Disharoon, cuddle with your spouse on the sofa while sipping champagne in front of the crackling fireplace or watching Netflix on the big screen TV. Walls of windows frame the gorgeous trees reaching to the heavens, and there’s a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances to cook anytime and keep snacks and drinks on hand. Enjoy meals together at the dining table or on the screened deck. You can even toss veggies or steaks onto the gas grill on the open deck for a fun barbecue in the North Georgia Mountains.

Spread out to the den that features another sitting area with a TV and a table that’s great for cards and craft brews. To further relax, grab your favorite book and lounge in the hammock on the patio or draw a hot bubble bath in the indoor jetted tub. Ready for bed? Split your group of up to 12 guests across a nice mix of bedding, including 1 king suite on the entry level, 1 queen bed downstairs, 1 twin bed + 1 twin bed and a trundle in the downstairs bedroom, 1 queen bed upstairs, 2 twin beds upstairs, and 1 futon in the loft. Additional amenities at this cabin rental in Big Canoe include a flat, paved driveway with parking for 2 vehicles, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a washer and dryer. Plan your memorable mountain retreat and make Our Happy Place yours for a while!

Living Room
Walking into this Big Canoe rental, you’ll notice a quaint window bench, great for resting groceries or suitcases while getting everyone settled. Follow the gorgeous floors into the open-concept living room that features plush seating, a big screen TV, and a classic wood-burning fireplace encased in stacked stones. A wall of windows lets in tons of natural light and tree-studded scenery during the day, making this room ideal for sipping coffee, chatting with friends, and just hanging out together.

On chillier afternoons, light a fire in the fireplace, pass around mugs of hot cocoa with extra marshmallows or jars of Georgia moonshine, and enjoy quality time with family and friends. For added entertainment, flip on the big screen TV and put Netflix to a vote for movie night. With bowls of movie-theater popcorn, locally made fudge bars, and your favorite beverage, what could be better? If you’d like to spread out, there’s another sitting area in the loft, great for reading, writing, or chatting with a close friend.

Tummy rumbling? Head to the kitchen at your Big Canoe vacation rental to grab a snack, whip up a quick bite, or cook up a storm! This fully outfitted kitchen features stainless steel appliances, plenty of counter space, and an island with bar seating. It’s an especially lovely place to cook because you’ll be able to look out at the trees while preparing and serving meals. 

Store fresh ingredients and leftovers in the double-door fridge that boasts a spacious freezer drawer. Fry bacon and eggs on the stove that faces the living room to keep everyone connected. Bake sweet treats in the oven every night, reheat pizza in the toaster oven, and pop buttery popcorn in the microwave. You can make single cups or full pots of joe anytime, and there’s a dishwasher to clean up any messes!

Dining Area
Ready to eat at your Big Canoe rental? Set the dining table and breakfast bar for mealtimes together. You can also spread out into the living room or onto the deck. It’s so nice to enjoy meals with wooded views, and in the evenings, you can clear the table for board and card games, arts and crafts, or dessert with coffee. The table is also ideal if you need to set up a work meeting or keep up with homeschool assignments while away.

Another place to slip away for a spell is the downstairs den. This cozy space at your vacation home in Big Canoe offers a reclinable sofa, a lounge sofa, and an armchair with an ottoman to kick back and relax. Turn on the big screen TV to binge a new Netflix show you’ve been waiting to drop or sit at the table and toss back a couple of cold ones while dealing cards. Through the windows, you’ll see more tree-studded views during the day. 

Racing at the Atlanta Motorsports Park, fishing at Lake Disharoon inside the community, or exploring downtown shops demands rest time at your Big Canoe cabin rental. There are 5 spacious bedrooms plus 3½ bathrooms to accommodate up to 12 guests. On the entry level, you’ll find the main bedroom that boasts a king-size bed, a TV, and French doors leading to an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower and an indoor jetted tub for spa baths.

Upstairs, there are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed and one with 2 full-size beds. Downstairs, there are 2 more bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed and one with 2 twin-size beds (one with a trundle). You’ll also have a futon in another common space in the home in case you want to spread out more, and there’s a bathroom on each level for added convenience. 

Outdoor Spaces
In the great outdoors at your cabin rental in North Georgia, you’ll have wooded views all around, a spacious open deck with seating and a gas grill, a screened-in deck with wicker seating and a table with chairs, plus a patio with a hammock and a bench. Fire up the grill for a family cookout or barbecue with friends, enjoy meals outside, lounge with a good book, and take in the scenic views every day. The driveway is also flat and paved with parking for 2, and with only 1 step to reach the front porch, unloading groceries, souvenirs, and suitcases won’t be a hassle. 

Other Amenities

My family and I really enjoyed our stay

November 2023

My family and I really enjoyed our stay although we did get a chance to take in the sights because of the wedding we attended that Saturday but I’m am hopeful that we can come back very soon.But we really enjoyed the stay.

Had a great time before being married

August 2022

The rental was in Big Canoe, so be prepared to do some mountain driving. The place is really clean and nice. We had had 10 people stay in the cabin. Everything was layed out and organized for check in and out. Had a great time before being married.

This vacation home was the perfect location

July 2022

This vacation home was the perfect location at Big Canoe (next to the beach/ lake area) for our family stay during a family reunion event held at a nearby venue…the home was clean, spacious, plenty of rooms & bathrooms, big kitchen area, nice patio porch & deck and backyard backed up to the lake & hiking trails ….also had extra parking in a parking lot on other side of the cul-de-sac which worked out great for extra guests’ parking
