Overview

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.

About Joanne Leonard

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

Why Joanne Leonard chose Big Canoe

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.

What makes this lodge unique

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!

Great time in Big Canoe!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time renting this house over spring break. We had 13 people total (6 adults and 7 children) and everyone had a spot in a bed! We spent a lot of time on the screen porch, very roomy and plenty of space for the adults to hang out! Kitchen was big and well stocked so we were able to prepare the meals like we were at home! Already talking about renting again in the fall!

Awesome Mountain Vista cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable views from this very well laid out, spacious and beautiful cabin on mountain top in the woods. We had 4 adults and 6 kids and everyone had a blast. Great amenities and walking trails. Definitely recommend!

Long Winter Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and the views are simply amazing. We had a lovely vacation simply relaxing, playing games and just hanging out with family and friends. We had a group of 13 people from ages 8 months to 84 - and everyone had a wonderful time. I have been booking on VRBO for about 10 years and this was by far the easiest experience - from the directions, to the detailed and helpful information left in the home - it was just perfect.

New Year's Eve booked again for 2015 already!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked it a year in advance if that tells you anything about how wonderful this mountain home is! We had 12 people (5 of them children) and everyone had a great time. Plenty of space to all be together in the kitchen and living rooms yet enough space to all spread out amongst the different floors/rooms.

The views are terrific, it took an extra long time to unpack the cars as after people went into the house they did not come back out. When I went in I found almost everyone on the porch taking photos!

Tom and Joanne have thought of everything you may need in a vacation rental. Nicest fully equipped VRBO we have ever stayed in by far!

We are so glad we found this home and we are already looking forward to New Year's Eve 2015.

Ringing in the New Year.

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of ringing in the New Year at this beautiful home in Big Canoe. Three families came together to celebrate 2014 and welcome in 2015. The home is wonderful and very well furnished. The views are amazing and we all felt comfortable and at home. Having the grill and a nicely equipped kitchen made meal time fun and easy for our big group. Thanks for sharing your home with us. We'll definitely be back!

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at your mountain home! The floor plan allowed us to spread out and accommodated 10 of us very comfortably. We especially appreciated the large dining room table and the three master suites. The views were incomparable. Even in the dead of winter, the mountain views were breathe taking. The only downside was the steep drive and switchback turns going up the mountain. Also even though the IGA store was only 5 miles away, it took a good 15-20 minutes to get there. This was minor inconvenience compared to how wonderful the house was. I just mention it so people can get their supplies on the way in. This house was decorated so nicely and it was such a warm and welcoming space. I have rented vacation homes for fourteen years for my family and this was one of the best! I highly recommend it.
