GREAT ESCAPE - NO DEPOSIT REQUIRED!! WALK TO THE POOL/BEACH!!

Big Canoe House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 11)

When you book with us and return the signed rental agreement, all we ask for is your credit card number to hold the reservation. No deposit is ever billed. Once your stay is complete and the provisions of the rental agreement have been met, there is no other transaction required. If for some reason, some of the provisions are not met, the maximum that would be charged to your card to cover the cost is $200 (the standard deposit amount required).

If you don't like to use credit cards for your rental transactions, just put a $200 check in the mail along with your signed rental agreement. I will hold the check until your stay is complete. Again, if the provisions of the agreement have been met, I will either return or destroy your check, whichever you prefer.

Big Canoe, nestled in the foothills of North Georgia Appalachians, is an 8,000-acre gated community offering dramatic mountain peaks and natural woodland forest. It is first class all the way with 27 holes of world class golf, three stocked lakes, a state-of-the-art fitness center, abundant wildlife, miles of hiking trails, a pool, a children’s park and much more! (note - cost of amenities, including swim club, is not covered in rental cost) Come see why 'Great Escape' is the perfect getaway for multiple families with children or just a quite getaway!

Located in Laurel Ridge, a cluster community of 44 homes, 'Great Escape' is a luxurious mountain home surrounded by nature at its finest with beautiful mountain views. As well, within walking distance to pool, lake with beach and paddle boats, water slide, restaurant, general store, park, church, tennis courts and fitness center with indoor pool and a quick drive to the new Lake Sconti Clubhouse, Golf and the Jeep trail.

'Great Escape' is cozy and comfortable. It consists of three levels. The main level has a big open kitchen, breakfast area and den, which makes for easy entertaining. The full, gourmet kitchen has granite countertops, tumbled marble backsplash, and black appliances. Our farm-style kitchen table seats eight people and is perfect for game night or family style dinners. The cozy den with a gorgeous stacked stone fireplace is perfect for reading, watching TV, just hanging out or listening to music. There is also a screened porch off the kitchen with a teak table (seats 6). The screened porch leads out onto the enormous main level deck, which has a complete patio set and new gas grill.

Also located on the main floor is the master suite. The master bedroom has a queen size sleigh bed, two nightstands, a dresser and an armoire, which houses a TV and DVD player. The master bath is enormous with his/her sinks, granite counter tops and an oversized shower and separate jetted tub.

Downstairs on the terrace level is a gigantic recreational room with a 55' HDTV, a pool table and dart board. The entertainment center has surround sound, a DVD/CD player, and VCR. There are 3 oversized sofas, which seat 9 comfortably. The terrace level deck has a bistro set and various benches for hanging out. Also on the terrace level is a bedroom with a queen sleigh bed, two nightstands, an armoire and a large bathroom. In addition, there is a full size laundry room with washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.

On the top floor of the house, there is a cozy loft area with DSL connection and desk (as well as wifi). There are two bedrooms upstairs, each with its own bathroom. One of the rooms has a queen bed and the other room has a double bed on one side of the room, bunk beds on the other, and a flat panel TV. As well, there is an adorable mini children's playroom / fort with a twin bed in it.

We live in north Atlanta in the Sandy Springs/Dunwoody area. We are five minutes from everything the Perimeter Mall area has to offer as well as ten minutes to the Buckhead/Lenox Square area. We are also only one hour from our rental properties in Big Canoe..

Allen Pye purchased this house in 2009

This is our second vacation rental in Big Canoe. We purchased our first home in 2007 and have had great success with the rental business. We love the mountains and it's so close to Atlanta. Many mountain communities are several hours from Atlanta, but Big Canoe is only one hour. It's a short drive but you feel so much more relaxed at Big Canoe, away from the hustle and bustle.

It rained the whole time we were there .. but it didn't matter. The house was clean and perfect ... we never left! The kids enjoyed the pool table and media room while the adults lived on the screen porch. We will be back again next Christmas!

No hassles, no worries, no problems .. what more could you ask!

Our group included 9 adults and there was plenty of room. 4.5 baths is a great detail. Open kitchen/family room was perfect for relaxing together. Another plus - walking distance to fitness center!

Great getaway at Great Escape!!

The house was very nice and felt like home. We had an early Thanksgiving Dinner there and it was perfect! The house was very spacious for our party of 9-11 people. Great views from the large decks and a great screened in porch area.

The guys went and rented a pontoon for a couple of hours and really enjoyed it even though it was a bit chillly out that day.

We had a great time playing pool downstairs in the "man cave" while listening to music but would suggest giving some attention to the pool table and dart board. The pool (billiard) equipment needs replacing. Most of the sticks didn't have tips, and the triangle ball rack was broken. Also, the darts for the dart board were missing or broken, so we couldn't play darts at all.

Our family had a WONDERFUL time and hope to return there again soon.

Very satisfied

Janet and I had such a wonderful time at Great Escape, The home is full of a warm friendly atmosphere the minute you enter. you can live on the main deck and just unwind and let your mind wonder. The inside is appointed so nicely that we felt as we were at an extension of our home but in the beautiful mountains of Georgia. Very nice restaurants are close by, and also a large retail mail if you desire.
I encourage everyone to contact Mr. Pye and book your wonderful stay in the Georgia Mountains.
