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.

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.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Every comfort of home has been thought of. Plenty of space to relax & roam & explore. And the hospitality shown by Carl far exceeds all expectation!!!
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
  • Submitted: Feb 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
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.

We arrived to find about 3 inches of snow at the cabin! My kids had never seen snow (we are from florida) so thy really enjoyed it. The cabin is roomy and has everything needed. Used the fire pit a few nights and the fire place nightly. Visited desoto falls, Helton falls and Vogel state park. The waterfalls were beautiful. Also had ribs and pulled pork from Jim's BBQ- was great! Enjoyed watching g the Super Bowl at the cabin! Will definitely be back! Loved it! Planning our next trip and we have t even arrived home yet from this trip (still driving)

Wonderful, cozy cabin.

We had a great time at the cabin and in Blairsville. Everything was perfect and we found everything that we needed at the cabin. The caretaker, Frank was quick to respond with more firewood when requested. Carl was great and quick to reply, if needed. We had a great quiet Christmas at the cabin. Wonderful time hiking on the Appalachian trial. The cabin was fully appointed with a stocked pantry. My son loved the cabin so much that he has not stopped talking about it and wants to go back. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Owner's Response: We were so glad having your family stay at our cabin for Christmas, I only wish there had been some snow. We were there for Christmas in 2011 and it was beautiful in the mountains.

Esther and I are glad your son enjoyed himself and we look forward having you as return guests. We also thanks you on your comments concerning the stocking of the cabin, many items we started with and others we have added as a need for a guest was presented.

We enjoy our guests and it put a warm feeling in our heart when other really enjoy our place!

Thank you,
Carl and Esther

Another great stay!

Wow -- we chose the coldest days of the decade to stay at your cabin this time. And of course we had some frozen water lines like the rest of the Country, but many thanks to Frank for thawing us out and making sure we had a good supply of firewood! We just love the cabin and were more than comfortable enjoying our evening fires. We are looking forward to our next visit - hopefully this Spring. Thanks Carl and Esther for you kind attention.
Owner's Response: JoAnne,
We were honored that you both chose to stay at our cabin again and as last time you were awesome guests.

It was really cold and Frank still believes it was colder than in 96 "hope he is thawed out by now!

We look forward having you as guests again.

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.
