From start to finish the entire experience renting Choestoe Sanctuary was PERFECT! Our family doesn't vacation very often so we are not used to renting places.... anxiety about renting (and not knowing if we made a good decision about where to stay) was definitely high. But Carl and Esther made the experience so easy and perfect and wonderful. The cabin was exactly as promised and had everything we needed. The view is amazing. I took morning photos, afternoon photos, and evening photos. The surrounding mountain views are just fabulous and since we are from the Atlanta area, we do not get to see such pretty countryside very often. I wrote in the guest book everything we did while in Blairsville... like walking the trail and playing in the waterfall at Vogel State Park, going to the top of Brasstown Bald, tubing and shopping in Helen, tubing and gold/gem mining in Dahlonega, eating at Jim's Smokin' Que, shopping at Alexanders (and Ingles...that is a super nice grocery store!)..the list goes on and on... Choestoe Sanctuary was the perfect place to rest our heads at night after an exciting and fun filled day of breathing fresh mountain air and exploring what Blairsville and the surrounding areas have to offer. One of the best vacations I have ever had. Thanks so much to Carl and Esther for Choestoe Sanctuary. We will definitely be repeat customers. I am already planning my next trip.
