CHOESTOE SANCTUARY IN A PEACEFUL AND TRANQUIL SETTING-COME RELAX!

Blairsville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms providing the most awesome views!

We listened to our guests so we added a Keurig B60 coffee system for 2013; bring your favorite K Cups and enjoy the beautiful view on the decks! This beautiful, recently renovated cabin sits on 1+ acre of wooded land on the side of a hill overlooking the Trackrock Valley. Off in the distance, the tallest point in Georgia (4,784 ft) can be seen - Brasstown Bald Mountain and directly beneath the first and second deck, one can see a winding country road that passes a white-steepled church. You can hear cows calling out to each other and many other peaceful sounds as you drink that first morning cup of coffee on the lower deck or a cup of hot chocolate around the new fire pit. A new Amish glider was placed on the deck off the master bedroom allowing you to sit and enjoy the view.

It's hard to believe that only two hours northeast of the hustling and bustling noise of Atlanta, you can find such a tranquil setting and the opportunity to escape. Town is not that far as the picturesque town of Blairsville is only eight (8) miles away. You will pass over some of the most beautiful country you will ever see as you make your way over the winding road that leads to Blairsville.

Surrounding area: There is much to see and/or do. This is a photographer's dream ... so many beautiful pictures to capture! We have seen the Dogwood season begin to open on the mountain, a red-headed woodpecker hammering out a meal, graceful deer leap across our path and the neighbors tell us that we will see our share of black bears.

You are only minutes from Vogel State Park, Brasstown Bald, Helton Creek Falls, and the Appalachian Trail. Hiking trails are close by, horseback riding at the Trackrock Stables, tubing at Pappy's and in Helen, digging for gold in Dahlonega, boating and fishing at Notelly Lake, shopping at the Premium Outlet Mall (woo hoo!), swimming at Vogel State Park, jogging in Meeks Park, and in the Fall... the changing of the leaves and the local festivals.

Guestbook comments from the owner
A Very Special Place



Choestoe Sanctuary is a lovely cabin in an easily accessible wooded area. The cabin is not isolated but is private. The view of the mountains is outstanding and provides a perfect setting for quiet meditation as the day moves from foggy morning to pink sunset.

The cabin is clean, well-appointed, cozy and comfortable. My favorite place was the screened porch which was wonderful at any time of the day or night without being bothered by insects…..a great spot for morning coffee.

Location is also a plus for sightseeing at surrounding towns and attractions. I enjoyed the trip up Brasstown Bald so much that I went twice.

My last night at the cabin was fairly breathtaking…a bear walked through the back yard and deer gathered at the salt lick. The first morning was special also, as it rained and the sound of the rain through the trees and the scent of the woods was truly a gift to the senses.

I highly recommend this vacation cabin. Carl and Esther have done an outstanding job of making guests feel welcomed and comfortable even before they step in the door.

I have one regret, however, and that is that I spent so much time sightseeing that I long to be back at the cabin just to absorb the beauty and quiet of the surroundings.

Esther and I have been married over 24 years and we love people as each person is unique. Have you ever sat in the Atlanta airport and watch people as they walk by, observe their manners, and gestures.

We have met the nicest people who have become our guests and many have provided insight is how we can better accommodate future guests which is what this is about. Many are just wanting to 'pay the mortgage', this is not an issue with us as we really desire to please our guests.

Esther or Carl purchased this cabin in 2011

It was a foreclosure and when we walked through the door on Valentines Day 2011 and pulled back the drapes and saw the view, it was 'love at first sight'.

We then started to mold the cabin to our liking as Esther started to pick out the color of paint and obtained furniture from the local shops.

Choestoe Sanctuary is close to all the natural points of interest and provides a peaceful haven to rest and reflect. I am sure tthe reviews highlight this fact. Everything was added as though we were going to live here all the time as many places provide cheap items, we have not. Each time we vacation there we add sometime new.

3RD STAY AT THIS BEAUTIFUL CABIN

  • 5 of 5
This was my 3rd stay at this beautiful cabin, Choestoe Sanctuary. My grandson and I enjoyed it so very much, Cabin was beautiful, clean, cozy and welcoming. We hiked Desoto Falls, enjoyed Vogel and those gorgeous mountains. As always, I spent much of my time on one of the two porches enjoying the view and feeling the serenity. The cabin was more beautiful than ever as it had just been painted. I have never had one single problem or issue. I would recommend the cabin and the fantastic owners to all. Carl called to make sure we were doing well and of course my answer was a big YES ! Thanks and we will be back............. Carol and River Brooks

Owner's Response: Carol, We have had many guests return for their second visit, but you are our first for a third visit. Esther and I were glad having you and your grandson return. We are glad you noticed the new exterior paint job. I must drive Esther up a tree sometimes when we visit as I am always wanting to do "just one more thing". Next visit we are upgrading the broadband, wireless speed and also cable TV, supporting even more channels. I am also thinking about doing a wood floor downstairs but have not decided as of yet. Again thank you for the great review and kind words. Carl and Esther

A PIECE OF SERENITY IN GEORGIA

  • 5 of 5
Very nice and well maintained cabin. My wife and two daughters, ages 13 and 9, spent a week in the Choestoe Sanctuary. It was a relaxing and enjoyable week. The house has everything you may need (except the food, that one you need to buy). We like cooking so all the dinners and breakfasts were made at the cabin. The kitchen was fully equipped with the needed kitchen utensils. They even have different spices and seasonings from other gusts that have stayed there so check the pantry before heading to the grocery store to buy what you really need. The house also has a DVD, Roku, TV, printer and internet access.

Blairsville is a very small town so there is not much to do there than just relax, however if you are going with kids that will be bored after a few hours these are some activities to do with them:
- Went to DeSoto falls for a 2 hours trail walk
- Went to the town of Hiawassee and rented a boat in the lake
- Went to Chattanooga, TN to visit Ruby Falls and Rock City
- Visited the Atlanta Zoo
- We also played board games, made a campfire, watch a couple of movies, headed out the cabin during the night to try to catch some fireflies

Carl was amazing making sure we had everything we needed. I rarely write reviews of places I stayed but I had to do one for this one.

Owner's Response: Ricardo and Family,
It was a pleasure having you and your family as our guests. We are glad you shared with others the places you went, the things you mentioned for others what they can find in our cabin.

Esther and I take pride in making sure our guests have what they need. I remember staying in cabins over the years and really liked those owners who went "above and beyond" for their guests.

We are always looking at these reviews to better support our guests and some items have come from either reviews or just calls to our guests prior to them checking out.

We look forward having you and your family back. Thank you for the great review!

Owner's Response: I remember you were excited after you first booked and received the information concerning the cabin. I am happy you and your family were pleased.

Since you enjoyed the cabin and the area during the colder times you and your family will have to visit the area during the summer and visit all the natural resources this area provides.

Thank you for being such great guests!

THE PERFECT VACATION CABIN

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was the perfect home away from home. It is cozy, clean and had everything we needed to feel comfortable. Fully stocked kitchen, plenty of wood for the fireplace, extra linens, games, DVDs.....I can go on and on. You feel as though you are so far from everything which is amazing, but just several miles away are restaurants, walmart etc....It was the perfect location for my boyfriend and I to celebrate our birthdays. Carl and Esther go out of there way to make sure that you have a wonderful stay. Frank the caretaker is great and will take care of anything that you may need. We will be staying here again and I recommend Choestoe Sanctuary to everyone who wants a mountain get-a-way.

Owner's Response: We were glad that you enjoyed our cabin and also all this area has to provide. Some of the things you mentioned attracted us to purchase this quaint cabin in its location.
Frank told me your slice of cake was awesome!
Looking forward having you both back as our guests.
