PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with a number of friends last year for a very special numbered birthday (which I will not say). This place was stunning, beautiful views, relaxing porches, quite, peaceful, and very entertaining! All my guest and myself included were extremely impressed and had blast staying in this house for the weekend. It was like a home away from home. I look forward to returning to this place soon, I do believe it is in order. Thank you so much Snowfort for making my birthday celebration the best one yet and for being such a beautiful and comfy place to get away!

GREAT GETAWAY FOR EXTENDED FAMILY OF 13

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I wanted to plan a getaway with our families to celebrate our mom's 70th birthday. A Snow Fort was the perfect setting for the memories we will cherish for years to come. Lots of together time with room to spread out and relax, too. The mountain views were just like the pictures posted by the owner. As for the gravel road portion of the journey, I was a bit concerned after reading the other review, but we did not find it to be a problem. If you have concerns, just plan to arrive during daylight hours and judge for yourself. I think you'll find this property's charm more than worth the trip!

HONEST REVIEW

  • 4 of 5
The home is beautiful inside. The pictures you see are when the home was just built, the landscape/trees are overgrown. The house is right on the road, not as far away as the picture makes you think. The drive to the home is, to say the least, an adventure. You need a jeep or some type of 4 wheel vehicle. The road is gravel and very steep. You cannot leave the cabin and then decide to come back and have lunch, then leave again...be sure to be back by dark.. no lights on the road.
There are beautiful views from the cabin and it is very comfortable, kitchen is great... Lots of room! Just wanted those that are making a decision to stay here know about the drive to it.
We have stayed in the mountains before but the roads were paved and easier to travel...
The property was very clean and owner answered all my questions, I just didnt ask the right ones! :)

Owner's Response: These are the first neg. comments about the road since I began renting the cabin in '05.One of the endearing attributes of A Snow Fort is its location & most guests enjoy the approach to get there. It has sweeping views of the National Forest which is a picturesque landscape of 2000-4000 ft mtns & gorgeous valleys.What is unique about the view is there are no structures w/in the view (not even in the distance).It's just pure nature & pure views of the National Forest & when the full moon hangs above the peaks it's breathtaking.However, to get to this wonderful place you must travel down the National Forest Service Rd. Guests find the road a plus because they feel like they are "getting away".The National Forest Service maintains this well compacted road & there are no pot holes & NO steep inclines.I'm not sure why she stated it is steep. It is mostly level & curvy with slight inclines.You can refer to topographic maps online, follow the road with your curser, & see just how level it is. The road hugs Lake Blue Ridge & the trip in and of itself is a pleasure for most.The only steep portion of the trip is inside the security gate on a newly paved road which leads you to the top of the mountain where the cabin is situated. What I STRONGLY disagree w/ most about the review is her statement the guests need a four wheel drive. If that were true, there would be negative reviews stating just that & those reviews don't exist.I drove my 3-series BMW to the cabin from 2005 to 2008.There is about 8 inches of clearance from the Rd to the bottom of a 3-series. I never bottomed out once.

Regarding trees, the pic is from '05 but I have now switched it out with a recent photo & left the old photo online to compare the two pictures so you can see the trees have added to the property's charm.Since '05 I have planted numerous evergreens including Hemlocks, Deador Cedars, Long-Leaf Pines, Ponderosa Pines (from California) & more. I love trees & feel evergreens are the right choice.There really is no landscaping(except bushes across the front) to speak of since it is in the woods.

I do agree with the rest of the review.It is wonderfully appointed & clean w/ everything you need for the perfect Blue Ridge getaway.On your way in town go Ingles on Hwy 5/515 & load up w/ everything you need.Most guests tell me once they get to A Snow Fort they don't want to leave.

ONE OF THE BEST VIEWS IN N. GEORGIA

  • 5 of 5
This property truly was a pleasure to visit. It was a weekend visit and I was extremely impressed with the quality of the craftsmanship and detail to the structure. With the wide open living space and kitchen, it is ideal for socializing. In addition the privacy of each bedroom makes for a perfect quiet getaway and peaceful night. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention how the view from any level on the back of the home was truly breathtaking. The sunrise and sunset were amazing. In fact we were blessed to see some friendly wildlife roam the lower hills of the backyard. This place is a must-go and I will definitely enjoy staying again!!

WHAT AN AWESOME PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at this lovely cabin more than once and I cannot say enough for how perfect it is. The decor is "mountainy" without being overly country or heavily themed. From the moment I stepped inside the first time, it said "relax and enjoy...feel pampered". The floorplan/layout is wonderful for large families/groups, with bedrooms spread out, and even a rec room downstairs in the walkout "basement" level (I put that in quotation because it is not at all "basementy" :) Huge multi level decks provide a breathtaking view. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious, and coupled with the large dining table, can accommodate many for dining. But the most notable thing, to me, is the "feel" of the place - it is BETTER than home away from home (it feels like home, only better!). It is without a doubt the BEST mountain cabin I have ever been in...and I grew up in the Asheville, in the mountains of WNC so I have been in many mountain vacation homes! Beyond that, it is the best vacation rental I have stayed in, in terms of the thoughtfulness of the owner and attention to details. Stay here...You will not be disappointed!

A GREAT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at this home on numerous occasions and have always had a fabulous time! The house is perfectly appointed with everything you need for a great weekend. I have to mention the quality of the mattresses on all the beds, because when I go away, comfort while sleeping is my number one priority (If I can't sleep in a comfortable bed, I may as well camp -- um, no thanks!). So often with rentals you get lumpy or old mattresses, but the mattresses on all the beds at this property are as comfortable as my bed at home. As far as the location of the house, it is perfectly situated for access to everything in the area. Both days we went to nearby Morganton State park to swim, and we also parked on the side of the road in and walked down to the lake with our dogs to swim. Every time we go up there we find new things to do, from hiking totubing to boating to visiting a local orchard -- and they are all just a short drive from the property. On our next trip we will be checking out the nearby zipline! But it is almost as much fun just hanging out at the house, since it has everything people of all ages would want. We love having the hot tub available as well as the grill and large screen/DVD player. After a long day outside, we prefer to stay in during the evenings, so having the above makes for a perfect end to the days. And every morning we get a great work out by walking around the loop within the gates of the community. Finally, the owner was very responsive the to times we called him:once during a storm, when the power went out, and once when we accidentally set the alarm off. All in all, this is the perfect weekend spot for any season, and being under a 2 hour drive from Atlanta, we can enjoy all of Sunday before (regrettably) having to head home.
