Great Long Weekend

We stayed at Almost Heaven for a long weekend, 4 adults and 4 children. Tom was great to work with and he responded quickly to questions. A snow storm had hit the area prior in the week and Tom provided constant updates on the condition of the roads for our Friday arrival. The house had plenty of room and everything we needed for entertainment and cooking. The home is well located in Big Canoe with easy access to the amenities and beach. It was a quick drive to the local grocery store to pick up food for meals. We ate at the clubhouse pub as recommended by Tom. We were very well pleased with the quality and price of the food. This was a great weekend away for the families!

Beautiful Home, but need to update pictures

My family and I spent a week at “Almost Heaven”. Our trip was nice and the house was very clean, comfortable and well stocked. The house looked just like the pictures, however the rest of the pictures were very misleading. The beach can not be seen from the house, there is no trail down to beach unless you want to walk through a jungle of trees, weeds and bugs, and the hike back up the hill is a steep climb. This was very disappointing because it was one of the main reasons we chose this house. The dock in the pictures is a part of the swim club, it isn’t a private dock as we thought, perhaps that was our fault for not getting better information but as I said before the pictures are misleading. We had a issue when my 3 year old nephew wanted to dig in the sand on the beach and my sister was told very rudely that she must pay the daily club fee, when she explained she was simply going to watch him play in the sand, she was told she had to pay or come back after dark when the club closes, that is also the only time you can swim in lake without paying. The home itself was nice,clean and comfortable.

Owner's Response: In the middle of the summer the trees fill in and block part of the view of the lake.

We do have a trail to the lake but it sounds like our guest went straight down the hill and did not follow the trail that we made. The bugs are part of being with nature in the mountains.

Sorry for the misunderstanding regarding the dock. We assume our guest knew the dock was part of the Swim club because it extend into the lake from the beach.

To keep the natural beauty of the area there is not a fence around the swim club. The fees for the Swim club are required to pay the life guards and help keep everyone safe. So to use any part of the Swim club when lifeguards are on duty you are required to pay entry fee to the club. The fees allow Big Canoe to bring in new sand for the beach every 1 to 2 years. With that said there is no reason for one of the lifeguards to be rude. I spoke to the manager at the Swim Club about this and the lifeguard was disciplined.

Great vacation home built with helpful owner

Really enjoyed the home and surrounding community. Plenty to do if you're an outdoors person - hiking, fishing, swimming (we didn't swim - got snow instead), lots of local attractions like Amicalola Falls, Helen and other cities with shopping included.
The home is a great fit for 10 people. We had 4 adults and 6 kids ages 5 to 13. The big bonus was all the little things were covered. One fire log per night we were there was great. All paper products we needed for cooking and restrooms were there, didn't have to run to the store to buy something we forgot. Plenty of plates / silverware for 10 people and nice dishwasher. Salt, pepper, little things you need but didn't think to bring. Made my wife very comfortable for sure.
Can't believe the foosball table withstood the pounding from 6 guys all week, that was a lot of fun each night plus board games available.
The home's layout is also great. Three of the four bedrooms have bathrooms attached. Home was very comfortable temperature-wise, including large windows on the middle level with nice blinds to let the sun in or keep it out.
Would highly recommend this specific property for two families to split and enjoy an outdoors week together.

Spent our first thanksgiving with family at "almost heaven". The home was is very well kept with all the necessities of home. Homeowners were very helpful. Location was beautiful and quiet, a perfect escape. Stayed at the house with lots of little ones and felt it was kiddie proof. Would love to go back during another season but would not hesitate to book again for thanksgiving.

our week at almost heaven

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 5, 2013

My husband and I recently spent a wonderful week at Almost Heaven with our son's family and our daughter's family...six adults and four kids, ages 5 to 12. The house is beautiful, clean, and well equipped, and the access to the lake and swimming pool is good. (The trail down to the lake is rather narrow and steep, but none of us had any trouble manuevering it. It is a very short drive to the parking lot if anyone prefers to go by car.) The owner happened to be at the house when we arrived, and he gave us a thorough tour and orientation to Big Canoe and the details of the property. We would definitely recommend this place to friends. We enjoyed the swimming, fishing, and hiking trails within Big Canoe, but we also took side trips to Dahlonega, Gibbs Gardens, and Amicalola Falls. Many thanks to the owners for helping to make this a fabulous vacation!
