When you’re not boating, fishing, golfing, enjoying the spa, hiking trails to waterfalls, or playing tennis around the community, come back to Shades of Gray to relax in the North Georgia mountains.

Unwind on the screened-in porch with a good book, chat with friends as you take in the mountain views, sit back on the rocking chairs on the porch, and toss burgers or steaks on the grill for barbecues. At night, cozy up in front of the fireplace or sip wine at the outdoor fire table. This Big Canoe rental also offers fast Wi-Fi, a washer and dryer, parking for 2, keyless entry, and queen beds for your comfort.

Living Room
After a full day of fun, swimming at Lake Disharoon, ziplining through the treetops, sipping Appalachian moonshine, and exploring North Georgia flea markets, retreat to the cozy cabin in Big Canoe. Unwind with a good book or a close friend in the armchairs. Or lounge on the sofa with your feet propped on the ottoman while entertainment plays on the TV. 

Staying with us in fall or winter? Toss a few logs into the wood-burning fireplace for crackles, warmth, and classic log cabin vibes. Excited about majestic mountain views? Glance through the large glass doors to the Blue Ridge Mountains you’ve been dreaming of!

Craving a midnight snack? Hungry for lunch? Want popcorn for movie night? Your Big Canoe vacation rental features an open-concept kitchen that’s fully equipped with all the tools and appliances you need to prep and serve meals and refreshments on your mountain retreat with friends or annual family vacation. 

Boasting a sprawling breakfast bar with extra seats, stone counters, stainless steel appliances, a double sink, and upscale finishes, this full kitchen is a great addition to your luxury cabin in North Georgia. There’s also a dishwasher to help clean up and a standard drip coffeemaker to make you feel right at home.

Dining Area
Chat about your time visiting Burt’s Farm, picking apples in Ellijay, or kayaking the Big Canoe lakes while sitting around the dining table at your North Georgia cabin rental. Open to the kitchen and living room, you can spot the mountains and trees with every bite. Plus, this table is convenient for work, homeschool, crafts, puzzles, or board games on your Big Canoe getaway.

Ready to drift to sleep at your Big Canoe rental? This 2-bedroom cabin sleeps up to 4 guests with 2 queen-size beds and TVs. Each bedroom has access to the main deck, with one accessing the screened porch, so you can step into the great outdoors whenever you please.

In the primary suite, there’s a private bathroom with a large walk-in shower — featuring a glass panel showcasing the trees just outside. It will feel like you’re bathing in the forest! There’s also a walk-in closest beyond a barn door here. And the second full bathroom has a shower/tub combo in case the kids want bubble baths or you want a soothing soak before bed.

Outdoor Spaces
When you’re not strolling through the beautiful Gibbs Gardens, taking scenic drives through the Chattahoochee National Forest, or playing bocce in the community, continue enjoying outdoor activities at your Big Canoe rental home. Featuring mountain and wooded views, you can reconnect with nature in no time!

Sit in the rocking chairs with your morning coffee on the covered front porch. Relax under the sun or starry sky on the loungers on the main deck. You can cook burgers, fajitas, or veggies on the gas grill and serve dinner at the outdoor table here. There’s also a fire table, where you can sip wine and chat with your partner every evening.

Continuing around the main deck, you’ll find a screened area with plush wicker seating so you can relax outside anytime! For travel notes, the driveway is short, steep, and paved, and there is enough parking for up to 2 vehicles.

We enjoyed our weekend stay

We enjoyed our weekend stay at Shades of Gray! The home was clean, comfortable, and cozy, especially as it was such a cold weekend that we didn’t get out much! We would definitely recommend staying here!

We had a wonderful stay, Thank You!

Great little house with a really nice view from the rear deck. The driveway was pretty steep. The road inside the community was really windy, but pretty. It does take 10 minutes to get to the house from the main entrance, so bring groceries to save an extra trip. There were plenty of pots and pans, as my wife and I made a small Thanksgiving dinner. We had a wonderful stay, Thank You!

The host was also very responsive to all of my questions.

We had a great time at Shades of Gray! Everything was beautiful and clean, and the kitchen was well stocked. The host was also very responsive to all of my questions. We would definitely stay here again.
