My family and myself stayed here for 5 nights it was a great experience and a way to just be with each other and relax and legit live in with nature. We hiked, tubed, and just became one with nature for a few days. Definitely book this house if your wanting to get away from the world for a little bit.

1. Nature all around you only few houses on the street.
2. You get quality time with loved ones.
3. Did see some deer at night- no bears and wish we could have seen Bigfoot (next time)

1. No garbage cans on site- was a big issue for us and you have to take your garbage to an actual site which is only open 3 days a week- not horrible but when you dont live like this was a challenge for us.
2. Again your in nature have to remember this and if your at all afraid of spiders- this aint the place there were 100's if not more at night time just walking around- scared the kids so bad they never came out but I was fine just be careful.
3. Drive up the hill was crazy at 1st but after 3rd day we got used to it, the cabin is 1.5 miles up in woods and will take 10mins to drive- nice d4ive but definitely off the beaten path. Have a nice sized vehicle to get up the mountain.

Lovely cabin. We came here to celebrate my 63rd birthday. The road leading up to it was not bad. In fact I enjoyed it. The cabin was very clean. The porch has a gate so you can let you fur baby run loose on it. There are bears so be careful! There is no Mountain View but it faces the woods which is very peaceful. The only thing I would recommend is a small table on the porch so you could sit out with your meal and enjoy nature. Also close to everything. Definitely recommend it.

The scenery and the quit were magnificent. The area is heavily wooded and rustic. We loved the porch and meals on it looking at trees, listening to birds and watching occasional deer. Just be prepared for the rutted gravel roads in!

I got to spend 4 days in the cabin. The evening were quite - even though there are neighbors, you would never know, can't see them or hear them. The cabin is perfect, cozy, well equipped. Would love to stay there again.

This cabin was tucked away in the little town of Elijay...I wanted to get away for my late daughters birthday and this spot was perfect!!
Easy issues...clean cabin!! Will be back!! The town of Elijay was very cute and quaint!!!

The cabin was nice and very clean. The road to the cabin is in horrible condition. Its a 9 minute uncomfortable ride. I'd recommend a 4 wheel drive.

We loved the location and the cabin. It was so peaceful and we saw some wildlife. Heard a lot of wonderful sounds from the birds and wind blowing through the trees. We had to leave a day early as we needed to get home before the storms came in where we live. Hated to leave

The cabin was very cozy and comfortable and perfect for what we were looking for - a few days away from the normal hustle and bustle!! It rained the whole time we were there so we only went out to buy groceries and spent the rest of the time watching movies and sitting in front of the fire relaxing!!

We really enjoyed the beautiful cabin.
Jannette R. Nov 2018
Everything in this place was great. We just need to bring our presence and the groceries everything else was set. I would recommed this place for friends and family.

Cabin is cute and cozy but make sure to bring your own firewood. The only heat is a smell gas heater on the wall and a fireplace.
Manager response:
We are glad to see our guest enjoyed the cabin! The owner does provide firewood under the house on the bottom storage deck. The wall mounted heater works very great as well! Thank you!

A wonderful experience, excellent place, a beautiful landscape and a phenomenal climate, the house was in perfect conditions, clean and with all the comforts, only to point out that they had to update the TV since it is very old, it would be better to be smart to take advantage of the I use the internet that the house has, since there is no cable or signal from local channels, we could not use the TV. For everything else it was wonderful, forced to return and take a break.
