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! In Aug of 2014 we converted to a fiber internet connection with speeds of 20mbps down and 10mbps up 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.

About Esther or Carl

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 into 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

Why Esther or Carl chose Blairsville

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time, we enjoyed the cabin it was very clean and gave us a feeling of home. The view from the cabin was beautiful. We would definitely love to visit again sometime in the future.

Well worth the return trip...

  • 5 of 5
After last year's stay at Choestoe Sanctuary, we decided to return this October. The location and views are just perfect for us. In addition to revisiting some of our old "haunts", we drove to Brasstown Bald and thanks to a crisp, clear day we were able to see for miles. Amazing!

We found plenty of fall color on Highway 64 in North Carolina and also enjoyed taking road trips along NC Highway 28 and US 74 into the Nantahala Gorge.

Eating spots are plentiful and varied. Some of our favorites this trip were Mike's Seafood Restaurant and Jim's Smokin' Cue in Blairsville and The Chophouse in Murphy, NC. Numerous festivals were within minutes or 1 to 2 hours away. This year we drove toward Dalton, GA, and attended the Prater's Mill Country Fair which attracts numerous artisans and crafts people. Tours of the working Prater's Mill and other historic buildings were also available.

We stayed close to the cabin 2 days due to very rainy weather, but we were content to stay warm and dry inside and relax while watching the rain coming down. As always, the cabin has everything necessary for a comfortable and welcoming stay. All in all we had a great time at Choestoe Sanctuary and have even made another reservation for next year.

Thanks again for sharing your "home away from home", Carl and Esther.

Owner's Response: It was great having you both back as guests at our cabin. I also enjoyed the conversations we had and the insights you provided to several spots in the area. The reviews are so important to other guests as it allows them to plan their trip prior to arrival and decide what they want to see and do.

Esther and I look forward to your return next year!

A lovely home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at your cabin was delightful. We marveled at God's creations of the mountains encircling the valley, the water falls at Vogel State Park, the Winfield Scott and Chatuge lakes, and the beauty of the forests as we hiked in different spots; and the cabin was so close to all for easy access. We are so glad to have found your cabin and would definitely come back again and recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you chose our cabin and desire to return. The guests who followed you were guests last year and have already booked their return for a week in October of 2015.

When we start having many guests return for their second and third visit you know you are doing something right!

Esther and I are all about guests.

Looking forward to your return.

Choestoe Sanctuary Get Away

  • 5 of 5
Dear Carl & Esther, Our week at Choestoe Sancturary was very relaxing and the cabin was truly home away from home. Everything we needed was there for us.
The mountains are so beautiful. Would really like to see them in the fall. Thank you for our great week and if we ever decide to vacation in that area, we will think of your peaceful get away.

Awesome Experience! We Loved Choestoe Sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5
From start to finish the entire experience renting Choestoe Sanctuary was PERFECT! Our family doesn't vacation very often so we are not used to renting places.... anxiety about renting (and not knowing if we made a good decision about where to stay) was definitely high. But Carl and Esther made the experience so easy and perfect and wonderful. The cabin was exactly as promised and had everything we needed. The view is amazing. I took morning photos, afternoon photos, and evening photos. The surrounding mountain views are just fabulous and since we are from the Atlanta area, we do not get to see such pretty countryside very often. I wrote in the guest book everything we did while in Blairsville... like walking the trail and playing in the waterfall at Vogel State Park, going to the top of Brasstown Bald, tubing and shopping in Helen, tubing and gold/gem mining in Dahlonega, eating at Jim's Smokin' Que, shopping at Alexanders (and Ingles...that is a super nice grocery store!)..the list goes on and on... Choestoe Sanctuary was the perfect place to rest our heads at night after an exciting and fun filled day of breathing fresh mountain air and exploring what Blairsville and the surrounding areas have to offer. One of the best vacations I have ever had. Thanks so much to Carl and Esther for Choestoe Sanctuary. We will definitely be repeat customers. I am already planning my next trip.

Owner's Response: Hi Natasha,
Thank you for your kind words and the depth of your review. Esther and I are glad the cabin provided you and your family with a vacation to remember.

We have been lucky in having great guests such as you and your family and looking forward to your return. We have many repeat guests and just had our first guest who had returned for her third visit and she is planning her fourth.

All our guests rave about Jims and he is rated one of the top ten in the US. I can taste those ribs as I write.

Regards,
Carl and Esther

Great Cabin and Stay in Blairesville

  • 5 of 5
Great stay at Choestoe Sanctuary. The cabin is very comfortable with everything you need to relax and enjoy the great view and peaceful setting. Carl and Esther have created a perfect place to get away from it all while being within a few miles of a nice little town. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it. The other outstanding feature is the technology that has been added to the cabin. The internet speed is outstanding and there is also a ROKU box for those that enjoy watching NetFlix or Hulu.

Owner's Response: We are glad you and your family enjoyed our cabin and look forward having you back as our guests. It is interesting reading what aspects stand out and it depends who is writing the review.

I know you are an engineer and it falls in line with you writing about the technology upgrade in the cabin. All these reviews matter to future guests and afford them the information they need to for their stay.

Our cabin is located in the desirable area known as Choestoe Hills overlooking the Trackrock Valley.

There are approximately ten (10) cabins in this area and only two are available to the public for renting.

Blairsville is 8 miles away with its many thrift stores, consignment and antique shops. For the serious shopper, the Premium Outlet Mall is about an hour away and Atlanta and Asheville, NC are two hours away. Helen, GA is about an hour away with its many Christmas stores for shopping.

Blairsville was recently selected as one of the Applachian Trail towns with the Trail close by.

Pappy's, just down the road, has water tubing ... you can actually see the tubers go by as you sit and have your meal.

You will fall in love with this area and its people ... Southern hospitality is a reality in Blairsville!

Other Activities: White water rafting, many waterfalls, hiking trails, the beautiful Vogel State Park with its many trails, lake and water falls and the Appalachian Trail are not far away.

Golf: There are two golf courses within 10 miles... Butternut Creek Golf Course is a favorite and you will find a brochure inside the cabin.

Ski: Sky Valley, NC

This is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes away.

Fishing- this would be Southern Highroads Outfitters in Blairsville http://southernhighroadsoutfitters.com/ I had a guest who hired a guide for an awesome 4 hours fly fishing lesson and loved it. They are great people and my guest's wife texted me about all the fish he caught.
