I am retired after working seven years for the Union County Commissioner as his executive assistant. Now that I have free time, I enjoy gardening, volunteering, reading and playing with my wonderful Brittany, Cookie.
The Owner purchased this cabin in 1996
I fell in love with the North Georgia Mountains when I started visiting friends there in 1995. I purchased my home and lived there, making many life-long friends, and recently relocated to live with my daughter. We visit the area frequently, as it has always been a quiet and relaxing get-away to recharge our batteries.
When we are in the mountains, we love nothing better than reading a book on the screened porch, listening to the birds and watching for the deer to make their evening stroll to the springs on the property. We also love to hike on the many nearby trails, and golf at the beautiful Butternut Creek Golf Course. Boating on Lake Nottley is always a great way to cool down on a hot summer day. And watching the leaves turn in the fall is a breathtaking display. It's so quiet you can actually hear the leaves fall. The occasional snowfall while having a fire crackling in the fireplace also creates great memories for us.
