The cabin is just beautiful

January 2024

Amazing place for a mountain escape. The cabin is just beautiful, the owner really paid attention to details. The location is great, in a gated community that brings sense of security but with enough distance to the surrounding neighbors so you feel really private. The community has a lots of things to do, from a nice restaurant at the clubhouse to hiking trails, all really well maintained and with information available at the community website. Outside the community there’s lots to do, the Amicalola falls are just 15min away and a bit more far you have the tows of Dahlonega or Helen if you want to visit old gold mines or wineyards. We were a family of 4 and we spent an amazing New Year’s week there and we’re looking forward to return soon!!

It was a beautiful place

October 2022

It was a beautiful place that satisfied all the needs of my family of six. It was very clean and cozy. We will defiantly come stay again next year.
