I was in town visiting my parents, and this home was perfect. Very clean, comfortable, and nice furnishings. I had a wonderful stay.

Overall great stay. They had about everything you could possibly need. Wether it was cooking or doing laundry. Great size for a small family. I would definitely rent this property again.

This was a last minute booked because our amazing airbnb rental was alredy booked when we decided to extent our stay, we found this place throught vacasa and decided to give it a try!.
Here goes my honest revciew.
-The price was considerable cheaper than other older places which was great. it does has a cute decor that gives you that feeling of comfort. however when we got there the Heather was not working propertly, the shower was leaking everywhere, the internet was terrible to the point thst either our phone wont work with wifi or we could not wach a movie while laying in the bedroom, the have a firepit but not wood and no chairs. also the cleaness was questionable. We did call Vacasa and they send the maintence guy the following morning. but the whole experience was a bit of a inconvenice for us, between the calls and the fact to have to wait for things to be fixed, when it supossed to be working properlty of the first place.
However we did agree the location is great and you have everything close by including beautiful mountains, natural parks groceries and restaurants.
I also believe the place could have more pontential if owner decides to get a Hot Tub.

We loved everything from the time we opened the door. The open floor concept and the beautiful farmhouse decor made us feel right at home. It was a very combiner location to eat, as well as visiting Vogtle State Park, Helton Creek Waterfall, and Brasstown Bald. We definitely recommend and we definitely would stay here again. Oh, we got a good bit of snow this year on our visit to Blairsville ❄️

The house itself is beautiful and in a great location. No complaints about that. My family enjoyed the stay and all the activities. But the house was so dusty and dirty, especially under the couches, fans, lamps that caused allergies like never before. They offered to clean while we were already there but it was something that I had already paid a fee for meaning it should have already been done.
Juan, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed our beautiful space as well as the fantastic location. We deeply apologize for the cleanliness concerns you encountered during your stay and regret that we were not able to remedy this during your stay. We will use this experience as a lesson as we grow our teams' service approach. We can confirm that the home has been deep cleaned and is to our high cleanliness standards. We hope to host you for a truly carefree and enjoyable getaway in the future!

Adorable place! Everything you need from home in the house! 20mins from Vogel state park, Hiawasseea, Young Harris & 30min to Blue Ridge and Wolf Vineyard (a must stop for Sunday brunch if you can get a reservation or just beautiful deck views & wine). Great place to stay for day hikers and those that want to see what North Georgia has to offer! Thanks for great pre-Thanksgiving get a way! We will be back again for sure!
