Enjoy your morning cup of coffee on the front porch of your own private mountain. And then in the evening relax in our new hot tub. This beautiful home, located on 2 acres, is very private and has views from 3 different decks. All furnishings are new!! All beds are log beds with new mattresses and very high quality bedding. Just listed!! So what are you waiting for? Call your friends, split the cost and have a great weekend at Poppy Place.
We just added a new 105 gallon hot water heater so we can handle large groups. Also we added speakers outside on the deck and inside the house and a new fire pit area!!!
I am an educator in Gwinnett County. My wife works for a publishing company. We have 4 girls, 2 of which are adopted from China. We fell in love with the North Georgia Mountains and the slower pace of life. Our first home purchase was a 2 bedroom/2 bath home in Clayton, Ga. vrbo/202442
Lucy Harkness purchased this house in 2012
This is our second property in North Georgia. We love the beauty and small town feel of Blairsville. Poppy Place was perfect for our families needs. We have stayed at numerous cabins in North Georgia. A lot of the places that say they will sleep 10-12 do but the living areas are tiny as well as the dining areas. We feel Poppy place is the perfect place for familes to get away together. The way the bathrooms and bedrooms are set up as well as the full furnished basement, makes it ideal for several friends to come along for the weekend. With the master on the main level, it is the perfect place for a romantic getaway for just the two of you.
This home is big. We have two full size sofas in the family room and a full finished basement with bar, tv, and game areas. The entire group can be together!!
The cabin was very clean and comfortable. The hot tub was a plus! Great cabin for a big family. There was a huge bee nest, which the yellowjackets were a little too close for comfort so sitting outside on the deck got a little frustrating. We had to but toilet paper and paper towels only one roll was supplied, not enought for the week time. The owner was responsive.
This was our first time visiting this area and we had a wonderful time. This house was amazing! It was very clean and exactly as described. There was plenty of space and a beautiful view. The house was way bigger than I even imagined. Doug and Lucy were extremely nice and easy to work with. No hassle whatsoever. We can not wait to come back and bring the kids.
We had a group of 9 guys stay here for a golf/fantasy football draft gathering.
We enjoyed it so much we plan on making this the annual meeting location.
We stayed for a week here with my family of 4 and my best friend's family of 4. There was more than enough room for everyone to spread out and relax. Our kids loved the basement play area. We liked hanging out on the deck and watching the sun go down. It was awesome to partake in the area's outdoor activities, and then have a welcoming and comfortable place to return to. We only had 8 people, but you could very comfortably accommodate 12 people. I really believe we will be back to this house again in the future!
Thank you for sharing your north GA mountain home with our family. We had a wonderful trip to the mountains. We could not have had any better weather than we did. It was beautiful -- nice and cool compared to the high temperatures and high humidity that we experience daily in south Alabama! :) The house was perfect for my family. The children loved the basement (we are talking ages 6,5,4,3) and claimed it as their own space. They loved the toys that you had there. That is a great idea--kids always enjoy having "new" toys to play with. They also loved the double bunks bedroom. They could all sleep together. The older kids (their parents) loved the hot tub and utilized it daily after our mountain excursions. They also enjoyed the game tables in the basement. With the four bedrooms and three different floors there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. Papa and I enjoyed seeing everyone else enjoy! The rest of our families stayed across the highway at the Highland Cabins so we could not have asked for anything any more convenient. The large deck around our place was perfect for the evening cookouts and meals.
It was also great to be so convenient to Vogel State Park. We made a couple of trips there to do some swimming in the beautiful lake. We also spent some time at Helton Falls just on down the road past Vogel. Oh--and of course we made the trip to The Brasstown Bald -- the highest mountain in the state of GA! It was a great trip!
We definitely give your home a 10!!!
Recently our high school basketball team stayed at this home while attending a team camp at nearby Union County High School. We were thrilled with the amenities provided. The house was even nicer than advertised. The electronics provided were surprisingly good and the owners thought of everything a large group would need.
The full size basement contained plenty of games and activities to occupy the players' free time and the hot tub was a huge hit. The owners answered my questions promptly and were friendly to work with.
I was concerned about taking a small bus up the fairly steep driveway, but we did not have any problems. The road was concrete and well maintained. Parking was also not a problem.
Overall this was a great place to stay! Our team thoroughly enjoyed their stay and we are already making plans to stay again next year.
We were able to stay 2 nights in this home for the same price we had to pay for 1 night (multiple rooms) at a local motel the previous year. Not only did we save money, but we also had a much more enjoyable experience.
