Your slice of paradise awaits at Closer to Heaven, a modern two-bedroom cabin in the picturesque mountains of North Georgia. With sleeping space for eight, it’s perfect for a family and offers amenities like an outdoor firepit, a pool table, and access to Talking Rock Creek Resort amenities, including a large pool, a fitness gym, tennis and basketball courts, and hiking trails.
Belonging to the illustrious Talking Rock Creek Resort, the cabin’s expanded amenities guarantee you’ll never have a dull moment. The main clubhouse sits a mile down the road and its grounds also include grilling and picnic areas, a trout-stocked lake, and a picturesque creek bearing the namesake.
In this three-story home, spacious rooms are filled with abundant light, showcasing comfortable furnishings, wilderness-themed decor, pine floors and vaulted ceilings, and stone and natural wood accents inspired by the great outdoors. Kick off your shoes and relax on the living room’s leather couch or chairs while a warm fire glows in the gas fireplace. Read a book by firelight, or head onto the deck to rock on its rocking chairs while enjoying the sounds of nature.
Come back inside for more fun options in the downstairs game room, which offers a card table, a foosball table, and a beautiful slate pool table. You could also relax on the futon you’ll find in the room, take out your laptop and use the WiFi to surf the web, or flip on the cable- and DVD-equipped TV to settle in with a favorite series or movie.
When you’re feeling hungry, head into the kitchen to whip up something to eat using modern appliances and an assortment of cookware. You’ll also have plenty of countertop space on which to lay out ingredients. Eat together at the breakfast bar or nearby four-seat cafe table, or dine al fresco on the deck. Feel like having a barbecue? Just fire up the deck’s grill and get grilling!
Afterwards, gather the fixings for s’mores and roast them over the outdoor firepit – sure to be a hit with your whole group! You could also get a workout at the clubhouse’s gym, play tennis or shoot hoops on the shared courts, or lace up your hiking boots for an evening stroll on the nature trail that winds around Talking Rock Creek Resort.
Return home satisfied and ready for restful slumber in either of two bedrooms. Ideal for up to eight guests, the sleeping options include queen beds in both bedrooms, and the game room’s futon will accommodate your final two guests. Three bathrooms are split between the three floors, with one even containing a Jacuzzi bathtub for a soothing soak to wind down the day. There's also a washer/dryer, so you can pack light.
The area’s myriad activities will undoubtedly keep you entertained the whole length of your stay, but if you’d like to venture out further on a day trip, you’ll find plenty more to do and see within an easy drive. Visit the Red Apple Barn and learn about the apple cider making process, pick up some fresh, locally-grown produce at the Gilmer County Farmer’s Market, or bone up on the area’s fascinating history at the Tabor House and Civil War Museum.
