What a wonderful place, and a wonderful experience we had at Big Canoe, GA! We were so pleased with the spacious home, and all of its ammenities. Our large family (18 total), from different areas were able to re-unite at Jeff and Patti's home, and there was enough room for us all to enjoy our stay to its fullest. We love to cook, and the kitchen provided a fantastic opportunity for this, as well as the convenient IGA grocery store just minutes away. The large dining area/table was a wonderful set up for us to enjoy our large family dinners. The five bedrooms are set up wonderfully so we could all have our 'space'. The two 'extra large' family rooms were fantastic for everyone to spend quality time together as well. The location of this house is right on the lake, and the view from the deck was relaxing and peaceful. We are not sure who enjoyed it more, our family or our golden retriever! Nearly each and everyone of us jumped in the canoe and enjoyed a cruise on the beautiful scenic lake at least once. (Some were masters at it, and other's didn't make it past the cove without tipping!) The house is BIG; it is a quality home, with quality furnishings and honestly, we could not have asked for more. Big Canoe is a fantastic community and we plan to return again soon, for a 4th trip to the area. The marina, (rental of the pontoons and fishing), the swimming pools, golf course, fitness center, hiking and jeep trails, and local restaurants, local kayaking and Atlanta Motorsports, are all areas we visited. We would definately recomend any large family to stay in this accomodating home, as we know it would be an enjoyable stay for all!
