Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great time on our visit. Myself, my husband and 4 children were there. Plenty of space. Lots of stuff in Man Cave downstairs, so I kept the little one on the top two levels but other than that it was great. Lots of books, films, games, and stuff to do.

If you aren't used to winding mountain roads it can be a bit stressful. We were there with snow and ice, other than that you should be fine. Pappy met us there and showed us around, which was nice. Great antiques collection. To die for quilts.

If you are going to the river prepare for a climb. It doesn't look too hard. Pappy said it might require stopping on the way back up and it did. It is not for those of us who think we are still 19.

We will definitely be back for a visit in the future.

Beautiful mountain home

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a mountain home with a beautiful view, this is the place to go. We went there with children and grandchildren and loved being right on the river. There were double decks for all around scenic view, fire place to add to the ambiance and even games for the children. Host left out a portable S'more maker that allowed us all to enjoy a delicious dessert after grilling out on the deck. The hot tub is on the lower deck, for peace and quiet and privacy. Our daughter got engaged there so will now be an extra special place for us. Kitchen was fully stocked so just pack up your food, head to the mountains and enjoy.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
My church hosted a ladies retreat this weekend. Some of the ladies walked down to the river and wet their feet, and some sat out on the deck and admired God's beautiful creation. All of the toiletries and kitchen needs were totally supplied, we just needed to bring food. The rooms and beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms were very clean. The owner is extremely gracious and accommodating . We are excited about returning soon!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I had a great time staying at Pappy's Place with East Lanier Church, we had a very serene and restful time. I enjoyed the view from the back porch and exploring the creek. The owner was quite generous to us and i am hopeful that we will be returning.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Pappy's Place and loved this large and cozy cabin. The owner personalized our stay and he was a joy to interact with from the very first time. We were traveling with 12 people and had plenty of room for all. The view was beautiful, the fishing was fun and the kids enjoyed playing in the river. We will definitely be returning.
