5 BEDROOM FAMILY SIZE MOUNTAIN LODGE 50 MILE VIEWS SLEEPS 13

Big Canoe Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

'The Mountain House', named by our 5 year old grandson, is located a convenient 2 miles from the Big Canoe amenities and provides spacious accommodations with breath taking mountain and valley views. Our 5 bedroom 3 bathroom home has enough space for everyone to gather around the fireplace in the main room or to spread out by the fireplace in the terrace level, the screen porch, decks or other 3 floors.

As you enter the home on the main floor you will find a fully equipped kitchen with walnut cabinets, granite countertops and a double oven. The kitchen is spacious enough for multiple cooks to prepare a holiday meal; but if you prefer a more relaxed meal plan, use the gas grill located on the large deck. You enter the family sized screen porch through the dining area. The porch is the perfect place to rock in the willow rocking chairs while watching your dinner cook on the gas grill. The porch and deck provide long range mountain and valley views. The main level is also the central indoor gathering place to sit on the leather sofas while enjoying the floor to ceiling stone fireplace and rustic beamed ceiling. In the fall and winter months you can cheer for your favorite football team while you watch the game on the 50' flat screen TV. The main floor bedroom is off of the main gathering room and has a king size bed, a 32' flat screen TV and a connecting bath.

Upstairs, the spacious master has it's own bathroom, a king size bed and a 32' flat screen TV. The second floor is also home to the 'Bunk Room'. The 'Bunk Room' has a bunk bed with two full size beds and a single trundle bed. The 'Bunk Room' is suitable for children or adults.

One floor up from the second floor master bedroom and Bunk Room is the Crow's Nest. The Crow's Nest provides the ultimate mountain views and is a quiet getaway for reading, viewing the mountains and valley via the telescope or having a quiet workplace using the built in computer desk. The home is equipped with wireless internet.

The lower level provides another family room with a fireplace, 40' TV, DVD, and sound system. This floor is home to 2 large bedrooms and a bathroom. One bedroom has a king size bed and the other bedroom has 2 full beds and a connecting bathroom. Both bedrooms have 32' flat screen TVs. The downstairs family room has sliding doors leading to a covered porch and another large deck. Keep your eyes open because deer will cross through the side and back yard each day around 2 pm.

The Big Canoe resort area is set in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains. The mountain setting boasts of 3 golf courses, tennis, swimming, canoeing, paddle boats, rock slide, hiking and fitness center. There is something to fill every day of your visit or you may choose to just relax on the screened porch or outside decks.

We purchased this home after owning a smaller log cabin in Big Canoe. We wanted a home that was large enough for our family of 3 children, their spouses and our 4 grandchildren to vacation all at one time. We searched Big Canoe for a year and a half looking for the right house. When we walked through the door of this house we knew we had found our home. Our mountain home sleeps each family comfortably with room to spread out and enjoy the laid back lifestyle that Big Canoe has to offer. We look forward to sharing our home with you and your family.

Joanne Leonard purchased this lodge in 2010

Big Canoe offers a resort style community that is close to our home in Cumming. Because of it's close proximiity to Atlanta, it is easy for our family to escape to the mountains in a community that has something to offer every age and every interest.

The tranquil setting in the woods allows us to sit and enjoy the beauty of nature, the wildlife and the fellowship of our family. My favorite part is getting away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. We enjoy sitting in the willow rocking chairs on the screened porch and visiting with our children and grandchildren. The home has an open floor plan with a beautiful large kitchen, a spacious dining area, and large living spaces with a rustic mountain decor. The home has 4 floors so there is room for everyone!

Bridesmaids and Bride Accomodations

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What a beautiful home and spectacular view! We rented this home as accomodation for 6 bridesmaids, their respective spouses/partners, and my daughter, the bride to stay for her big wedding weekend at the Wheeler House in Ball Ground, GA. The house was just lovely, and had everything we could possibly need stocked and ready. I (MOB) gave the girls a brunch the morning of the wedding, while they were all getting their hair and makeup done. There was tons of room, and it was much more comfy for them to be able to relax and get ready without being jammed in one room at the wedding venue. The owner of this property is delightful, and even though we haven't met personally, I feel like we are already friends. We will definitely rent this property again for at least a week with the extended family, so we actually have time to enjoy all the amenities of Big Canoe!

Mother of the Bride

  • 5 of 5
We rented this stunning mountain top home in Big Canoe for the bridesmaids and spouses and the bride to stay during our big three day wedding extravaganza! We could not have picked a more perfect home or location for this joyous time. The home is huge, and has gorgeous views down into the valley below. There are tons of wildlife (deer, turkeys, etc) just roaming around beside the roads and in the wooded lots surrounding the homes. The house had a fully stocked kitchen which came in extremely handy when I was serving the catered bridesmaids luncheon to the bride and her friends. They all had their hair and makeup fixed at the house on the morning of the wedding, and it was the perfect location. No rushing around to get to a salon, plenty of room for everyone to relax and hang out and take time to eat and rest before the wedding that evening. Everything the girls/spouses needed to be comfortable was provided for them by the home owner...comfy beds, plenty of towels in the spacious bathrooms, and seriously fabulous views from each of the 4 levels of this house. The top floor view was really unbelievable. Loved the telescope provided :) I highly recommend renting this home for your next vacation (I'd like to stay for a month!)! We will definitely be back!

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5
The home was perfect! We could not have asked for a more beautiful and perfect vacation home. The owners are super nice and very helpful too! The community was also beautiful. The views are amazing! We had 4 families all there for vacation. The house as plenty large enough for all to stay comfortably. We will stay here again if our travels bring us back this way. While we were there we went rafting on the Ocoee, panning for gold, went in to Atlanta to the aquarium, and spent many hours on the screened in porch. We did see a few deer but no bears. If you are considering staying here, do it! You won't regret it!!

Amazing week in Big Canoe

  • 5 of 5
We had a large gathering stay at Tom and Joanne's absolutely gorgeous mountain home, and I cannot express enough how ideal this home is for BIG groups. One entire family took the basement (which included two teens), another family took the main floor and bunk rooms, and another guest the other large second floor bedroom. We never felt crowded, and yet - thoroughly enjoyed all of our family time together! We enjoyed long leisurely mornings at the huge dining room table, admiring the view, and drank our coffees and after dinner drinks in the screened in porch for hours on end. Big Canoe has SO much to do - don't neglect the incredible wealth of activities right in this Homeowner's Association! We went on great hikes, rented a boat (tons of fun), and played for hours at the pools and lake. I'd definitely come back again - and stay at this particular property. It was absolutely IDEAL!

Rest and Relaxation...

  • 5 of 5
My book club takes an annual retreat each year to celebrate our anniversary and this home was the perfect spot for our theme this year. First of all it was very roomy and comfy enough for all of my "sisters." When we wanted to engage in girl talk or play games we could gather in the open family room or drift off into one of the many relaxing spots in and around the house. The kitchen was well equipped for all of our cooking needs and the scenery was breathtaking; especially from the upstairs bedroom when the sun was rising. The beds were also very comfortable with down comforters to make the sleeping experience that much more enjoyable. Overall we had a wonderful experience and definitely plan to visit again.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
Amazing home in Big Canoe! The house was beautiful, wonderfully kept, and perfect for our girls scrapbook weekend getaway. The owners couldn't have been nicer. There were 9 of us in the group and the home had plenty of space to accommodate all of us. We will definitely be booking our next scrapbook weekend here. One of the ladies in the group plans to book this home for her family vacation later in the year as well. I highly recommend this rental property.
