I was worried when I read the negative reviews. Honestly the folks who left those must be picky as hell. The only reason I gave 4 of 5 isn’t really the fault of the place so much as the time of year. The leaves blocked the Mountain View. So during the fall and winter it should have a great view. But given the low cost, it is top notch. I slept great and work up watching the sun rise each morning. It’s a good distance from most things. However, that’s the point. It’s isolated and no close neighbors. At least not too close. I loved it. Will most likely return.

Loved the quietness, the location, the cabin even the townsfolk made us feel home. Would definitely recommend for others.

We absolutely loved the cabin! It was so perfect! Anything that anyone had complained about in the reviews they had fixed. The yard was huge and perfect for the kid to play in, hot tub was just right and the view at night with all the fireflies around was breath taking! We will definitely be back! Absolutely in love!

The view and property are beautiful, and the house met our needs. However, the pictures are very outdated. The porch and exterior is not as pristine as viewed in the pictures. In fact, the porch in some areas was not even safe. When we arrived, we unpleasantly discovered that the family staying there prior to us had not cleaned up after their dog and had allowed the dog to poop all over the driveway and yard. It was very disappointing as we had looked forward to using the yard for games and play. Upon entering the home, we discovered dog hair in the corners of every room and the stairs, as well as on all the furniture. The 3rd bedroom does not have a bed. Instead, it has a stained, run-down futon that I would not recommend sleeping on. The living room couches were stained and dilapidated. The TV and wi-fi rarely work, so bring games and unlimited data. Also, I strongly recommend bringing your own toilet paper and paper towels. They provide 1 or 2 rolls of each, and it is dollar store quality. To say the kitchen is not well-stocked is an understatement. You are provided 2 dishwasher detergent pods for the week, so if you have more than 2 guests and you eat in more than 1 meal a day, you will need to bring some. Furthermore, they give you 3-4 trash bags total, so bring those too. There are no condiments or spices, not even salt and pepper. Also, if you plan on using the laundry machine, you will need detergent. Lastly, we were disappointed to find the hot tub in unsanitary conditions. We had looked forward to utilizing it on the cold nights, but were sad it was in such disrepair.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Megan! We are disappointed to hear the home was not up to the high standards of cleanliness and guest satisfaction that we hold ourselves to. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager to address. Please note a starter set of paper products and travel-sized toiletries are provided to start our guest's first night out on the right foot. We encourage guests to plan ahead if they anticipate needing additional items during their stay. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we have the chance to impress you in the future!

This is a nice place and I’d stay there again.
However, as someone who vacations in North Georgia every year, I’ll talk about shortcomings. The WiFi is horrible. The beds have plastic covers directly under the sheets (I understand the need protect, but a fabric mattress cover would be better). The lodge doesn’t have “nice extras”; two wine glasses and three glasses, no wine bottle opener.
Manager response:
Frederick, thank you for your review. We sincerely apologize for any issues you had with the WiFi. Internet connection may be spotty due to the remote location of this home. We apologize for the inconvenience. To clarify, the beds have plastic mattress covers so our housekeepers can properly sanitize in between guests. Providing a clean and sanitized home is our top priority, especially during the times of Covid-19. Thank you for understanding!

This home is hidden away from all the noise and busy-ness that most of us are accustomed to. The woods and mountains are beautiful as is this cosy, comfortable cabin. The kitchen has everything you might need, the beds are very comfortable, the living room (with wood burning fireplace) is a perfect place to read, watch TV, or visit with friends, and you can watch deer in the yard from the wrap-around deck. The staff from Vacasa are very attentive and wonderful to work with and we would definitely stay in this beautiful property again.

We loved the privacy and natural beauty!
Cole D. May 2020
We had an amazing time relaxing in this awesome cabin. It was clean and the hot tub was nice. However, the plastic chairs outside were broken and the internet was really bad. We tried to reset the internet multiple times but it did not work. Other than that, it was amazing!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Cole! We appreciate your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed the home. We will work with our team to identify areas in need of attention. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

This was a great cabin. Good views, nice hot tub and well furnished.
Just FYI to dog owners: there are no fences and the deck is open. But there is a great yard in the back to walk the pooch.
John R. Mar 2020
Communication with Vacasa was great. Directions and instructions were flawless. Then we got there. I’ll list the positives first. The house was very clean and the the hot tub was this cabin’s saving grace. The house itself was fine and the place has great potential to be outstanding. However, the owners went ultra cheap on all the furnishings. The couches have very little cushion left on the arms. The tv stand in the living room is about to fall apart. Hardware was missing off of furniture. The furniture just feels like an afterthought. But, the worst thing about the cabins, was the beds. Since it was just the two of us, we had a choice of bedrooms. We sat on the bed in the downstairs bedroom and heard a very crunchy plastic-y sound like they had a vinyl mattress cover. That wasn’t going to work, so we used the upstairs bedroom. That bed and those pillows were the worst thing I have ever tried to sleep on. The bed is hard as a rock and the pillows are about 2 inches thin... I’m sure the cheapest Walmart has to offer. In my 2 day stay there, I got ZERO sleep. I’ve given myself 2 days to cool off before writing this review. It’s infuriating to spend over $400 for a quiet relaxing weekend and come back exhausted and frustrated.
Manager response:
We appreciate you leaving your review for us and apologize you did not find it a restful stay. With mattress and pillow comfort being so subjective, it can be difficult to know when to take action, so we will keep your comments in mind moving forward. The TV stand is an antique, but we have verified it is still sturdy. We will discuss the possibility of replacing the couch with the owners. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!

I loved the home, it was so comforting and beautiful. It was also very spacious. If you are looking for things to do cow girl ranch has horse back riding and it was absolutely stunning.

We spent the week of Thanksgiving at the cabin and could not have asked for a better location! The house was spotless and everything was in working order. The hot tub was a wonderful escape after days of hiking. Our dog enjoyed the expansive area around the cabin and was able to run while our 5-year-old became quite adept at rolling down the hill!

A few things to keep in mind:

It’s not the easiest property to find at night. Plan your trip to arrive in the daytime or be prepared to just “wing it” on the unmarked, steep left turn that leads to the property. Once you know it’s there? It’s a breeze.

The kitchen is great and a gas stove is a wonderful amenity. But if you’re used to those “communal kitchens” that have acquired years of renters “donating” certain pans, pots, wisks, spices, etc. you may find yourself running to Wal-Mart or Ingles (which are very close by). The cabin feels like its newly on the rental market and this could account for the lack of accumulated “stuff.” But in terms of a basic items? It’s all there and in great shape.

You are in the mountains and it’s great to read a book, do a puzzle, talk to the people you traveled with! That is a nice way of saying - the Internet is a bit spotty and kinda slow. Ditto for the feed for the tv. We didn’t mind a bit and we still got the dog show on Thanksgiving Day, albeit with a few buffering issues. We come to the mountains to disconnect so we found the lack of high speed service to be a welcome feature. That said? If you plan on working remotely, you may need to head to the nearby Starbucks.

The fireplace was great and we were left plenty of wood to enjoy a couple of fires.

We found Vacasa to be incredibly responsive and easy to work with. Would absolutely rent from them again.

We would happily come back and enjoy this great property.

Our time at this cabin was a sorely needed respite from dealing with major medical issues. Internet and Netflix issues were a blessing for us...we limited technology! Quiet, lovely, peaceful....

My family of 6 had a great time staying here!! Absolutely gorgeous cabin and property, the views from the upper deck are amazing and the cabin was supplied with everything we needed to get our trip started! Great location overall would definitely stay here again

Very secluded and clean.
Wesley C. Mar 2019
We loved the open space so that our dogs and kids could run in the back and play. We liked that it felt secluded and off the beaten path. It was in close proximity to Blue Ridge.

We were the first to stay in this cabin so I booked it, taking a chance since it had no reviews. Finding it was Google Maps was easy. There is one dirt road to the cabin and I never encountered another car coming in the opposite direction, so that was good. The cabin has plenty of parking since the road into it is part of the property. Walking in we felt like it was crispy clean. The windows gave an impressive view of the wooded area. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable and plenty of room for a family and large dog. It’s close to the Blue Ridge town. Close to orchards, Walmart, Ingles (supermarket), pharmacies and restaurant, yet far enough to feel you are secluded. They had pots, pans, plates, silverware, doggy poop bags, salt/pepper. We loved it and will be back!!
