We had a wonderful time with our family enjoying the cabin and nature. The cabin was amazing with all the wonderful little details, everything was very clean, we had everything we needed, and we spent a lot of time in the fireplace outside spending time together as a family and having a conversation away from our phones which was wonderful. The wifi was perfect and so was the temperature inside the cabin. We would go back and we recommend it 100%. I spent a wonderful birthday. And the highlight of the trip was when we saw 4 deer.

The cabin was beautiful 🤩 it was clean and very cozy . I will definitely be back 😍😍😍

We loved how quiet and secluded we were-we did miss the Mountain View’s, the house was very clean, needs a few more amenities such as soap to wash hands, more laundry detergent, newer pans for cooking, but overall we were very happy. The fridge is older so had to get a lot of water for a family of 9. Might be worth keeping a water purifier there?

The home is beautiful and in a very nice and quiet area. The only problem is the drive way. We had 2 cars get stuck and had to call the tow truck twice. Other than that, perfect getaway!
Dan V. Nov 2020
The scenery was awesome! Loved the porch with the fireplace.
Lindsay B. Nov 2020
We loved our time at this home and would definitely visit again. The home was clean and comfortable and when we had an issue with the furnace turning on the property managers were quick to come out and fix it. Would absolutely recommend this home to anyone looking for a mountain getaway!
Steve R. Nov 2020
What a magical spot from which to explore the trails and waterfalls of North Georgia! We loved cocktail hour on the back porch and walking down to the lake. Quiet, star-filled night sky!!
Wayne M. Oct 2020
Wow!! This place was was way beyond what we expected. Quiet neighborhood, beautiful home, location and the OUTSIDE FIREPLACE was the hit.
We thourghly enjoyed sitting out there in the cool evening with the fire roaring.

We absolutely loved this place!! Very clean and very cozy!

The house was beautiful, but our vehicle got stuck in the driveway twice and we have a 4 wheel drive SUV. The driveway needs to be redone as the gravel and mud cause major issues with driving up the driveway to exit The property. If you rent this place, park on the street and not in the driveway so you don’t get stuck. Hoping the management fixes this issue soon. We had a few more minor issues with the stay and property which was kind of a major bummer but being the property itself is so beautiful, I am giving the hpuse itself 4 out of 5 stars. It would have had 5 stars had we not got stuck in the driveway twice.
Melissa M. Aug 2020
Quiet, peaceful, but still fun for adults and children with the game room. The kids really enjoyed fishing in the lake behind the house, caught a few brim and couple little bass. Would definitely stay again.
Gabriela N. Aug 2020
The Sweet Spot is a gem! It is in a beautiful piece of land, in wonderful condition, and perfectly clean. It was such a pleasure!

The cabin is very nice. It sleeps many people. The main living area is conducive to a large group. I especially liked the back porch; I spent a lot of time out there. Plenty of bathrooms and amenities (hated the towels - they are not absorbent). The beds were comfortable and linens were nice.

However, the toys were all broken which was disappointing, the grill was dirty and there were no grill tools, the driveway is very steep and needs more gravel - hard to get out of on a rainy day, the TV in the downstairs bedroom was not working and we never could get any of the VCRs to work. The microwave kept going in and out - like it had a short. We reported it because there is definitely something wrong with it.

This part of my review is for anyone who has mobility issues. My husband has two prosthetic legs. I booked this cabin because in the picture it looked like we could drive right up to the front door. That was not the case. He had to enter from the bottom floor and climb the steps to go up; steps are very difficult for him. The steps down to the pond were extremely slippery - I walked down there with the kids once and did not venture down again because I felt they were dangerous. The main floor was good for him but getting in and out of the cabin was a chore for him. The stepping stones to the front door were also impossible for him to navigate.

The cabin was very nice and comfortable. The lake was not really suited for a large family to use. The dock was very small and there was really no other place to fish from so the kids weren’t able to enjoy it very much. The coffee makers did not work so that was a bummer. All in all, it was a good trip but we were really looking forward to relaxing as a family at the lake and that simply wasn’t possible with the tiny space.
Manager response:

Well equipped and plenty of room.
Tanya I. Jun 2020
This was such a cute home, we loved how private it was and very quaint, this was a quick Father’s Day getaway so they loved fishing. We would definitely book this home again, my only two complaints is that the driveway was only gravel and we had two cars with us and got stuck a couple of times trying to leave out since the home in downhill, also the tv’s being outdated and not working in one of the rooms, but still not enough to ruin the trip!!
Jessica B. Mar 2020
This was great. Everyone had a great time we were close to all the falls and bridges we wanted to see. Only down was the toys were all broke and the DVD player did not work for the kids.
Manager response:
Thank you for providing feedback, Jessica. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you bringing this to our attention, and we will be sure to replace the broken toys and DVD player. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Christina S. Mar 2020
Perfect home for a family. Took my son for his 17th birthday and we hiked up to the falls. Perfect day.
Randell E. Feb 2020
Bed was very comfortable, all the details such as kitchen utensils, gas for grill etc.. were taken care of. Would have liked to see some blinds on windows in bedroom and bath, other than that, it was a very relaxing stay.
Manager response:
Hello Randell, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We have notified our local management team of your suggestion regarding the blinds to address with the owner. We do hope you will allow us to host you again in the future.
Daniel T. Oct 2019
Well designed; love the openness and all the beautiful pine throughout home. Nice amenities. Felt secluded and safe. A very enjoyable 3 day stay.
Karen S. Oct 2019
Cute house but the house needed cleaning (cob webs and it was not Halloween), outside fire pit did not work, needs curtains on the bedroom windows and the pictures/video of the outside has changed a lot.
Kelly S. Oct 2019
Very clean!!!! And loved the lake
Mike G. Sep 2019
The home is great with a wonderful, very private location.
Jeffrey M. Sep 2019
My husband and I loved our stay at this beautiful cabin. In fact we rented it 2 weekends in a row! Cabin is beautifully decorated and immaculate inside. So peaceful and tranquil! We will definitely rent this cabin in the future.
Pat C. Aug 2019
We loved staying in this cabin. Had everything we needed, was very clean and roomy. It was close to all the activities we wanted to do. Will definitely book again on our next visit!!
Swathi M. Jul 2019
We went there with our family. Great cabin, it’s cozy but very spacious. We had a great time!
Matthew H. Jul 2019
The cabin met all expectations, very nice and secluded
Belinda D. Jan 2019
Wonderful place, quiet and relax. Everything was clean and in order.
Christina L. Nov 2018
Lots and lots of space. Neat, tidy, and clean. The outside fireplace was a hit with the kids for roasting their marshmellows. The table tennis and foosball kept the boys entertained. We were slightly disappointed though that there were no outdoor jacuzzi as described in the preview, but we still had fun. We had a good quiet family time just hanging out in the cabin. There are lots of trails for hiking close by. Downtown McCaysville is less than fifteen minutes away and if we were bored we drove to town and just browsed the cute antique stores in town. Overall, a good experience. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.
Leo L. Nov 2018
Our family of 4 and 2 grandparents could not have asked for a better getaway. We enjoyed the decks, indoor/ outdoor fireplaces/ and fishing. The privacy was nice too!
Just right! Hope to visit again.
JUSTIN P. Sep 2018
Awesome place, very well kept, plenty of room, everything you need for a great time!
Terrance b. Sep 2018
The Sweet Spot is absolutely amazing!!
Danita G. Jul 2018
Had a great stay at the Sweet Spot. Even better than the pictures. Very close to our outings of whitewater rafting, zip lining, and downtown district. Nice touches with rocking chairs on back porch, front porch swing, and outdoor fireplace. Everything worked great and even had extra gas for the grill. One of the most relaxing vacations that we ever had.
Jealani S. Jun 2018
The property was well located within 10 min driving distance to all rafting and zip lining. Cleanliness of the property could have been better. We booked the property looking at the photos as such but the lighting and cleanliness could be much better. overall we had a good time with family doing local activities. Rafting was a lot of fun.
Manager response:
We apologize for the house not being cleaned as thoroughly as is our standard. We take this feedback seriously and have passed your comments to the local manager. Please know that you can call us next time in order for local staff to assist with any cleanliness issues you face. We hope to get the chance to host you again! Thank you.

The owners got it right when they named this cabin. It is pristine, clean throughout, wonderfully private and space for days. Love the open concept kitchen and outdoor fireplace. There is a loft and basement with space galore.
Nawana W. Dec 2017
The cabin was awesome! It was well equipped with everything my family and I needed to cook a wonderful holiday meal. The rooms were clean, warm, and cozy. The chimneys were great for roasting s’mores. And the grounds and setting were beautiful! The management team was very friendly and helpful with any questions that I had. Overall a fantastic experience! I would definitely rent the cabin again.
Susan R. Nov 2017
Communication prior to check-in was great. Everything was as expected upon arrival. Beautiful, clean & comfortable cabin. Quiet private setting. Did some hiking to the "swinging bridge" about 30 minutes away, visited Blue Ridge and Macaysville. Other than that we did absolutely NOTHING except relax. We prepped our meals before arriving but kitchen seemed stocked ok with service ware and cookware. I would have like a blow dryer but other than that we had everything we needed.
Chris P. Nov 2017
The Sweet Spot was a great cabin! My family really enjoyed everything. My only suggestion would be that the cabin lighting in each room is very dim. Especially in the kitchen area.
Tom W. Aug 2017
Our family LOVED staying at The Sweet Spot for our memorial day vacation. We whitewater raft each year and the location of this home is only 5 miles from our favorite WW company! The home was incredible and I spent most of my time relaxing on the outdoor porch in front of the fire. We hope to return to this little paradise escape many more times!
Crystal G. Jul 2017
My family and my parents visited this cabin for a short getaway before school starts back for my children. This is the most beautiful cabin with such a serene outdoor atmosphere. The cabin is very clean and well decorated. My kids favorite part was the private fishing pond. The outdoor deck is perfect for stargazing and there is plenty of room on the inside for everyone to have their own space. We hope to stay here again in the fall. Definitely family friendly and just what our family needed!!
Richard L. Jul 2017
Not missing a thing! Check in was easy. Great ambience and cabin was spotless. Our daughter fished at the pond and caught several fish. She was pleased! Comfy place to be just love it and will be pleased to come back some day. Lovely cabin!
Philip and Lorna A. Jul 2017
It was a wonderful experience very clean and quite very peaceful and we can't wait to come back next time the stay will be longer
Sonia V. Jul 2017
