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! 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.

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.

Come sit with me....

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I wanted a quiet and peaceful retreat from our busy lives where we didn't have to think about what we needed to be comfortable.This cabin provided a place for us with every amenity for a wonderful get away. we spent every morning and evening on the screened in porch watching the haze disappear on the mountains and the sun go down in the evenings. We hiked during the day;my husband went fly fishing while I expored the town of Blue Ridge; lovely little town where you can catch the touring train of the BR Mtns. We took alot of deep breaths and reveled in our hide away.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review and the heading you placed at the front, we love our guests and glad when they have taken the time to "sit back and relax". I believe the word Sanctuary was well meant and this and other reviews claim this.

Glad Jim got to try his hand at fly fishing and the fish he caught. We are now going to feature the shop you used in Blairsville.

We look forward having you both back as guests again.

Everything we needed and So Much More!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I arrived at 9:30 pm after driving 10hrs. It was pouring rain, it was SO dark.. Lol we were weary to say the least! We called Ester at 10pm and she was our saving grace because we couldn't quite find the cabin. Remember it was dark and raining.. Lol she literally talked us right to the front door. I Love you for that, By the way!! When we opened the door to the cabin... Omgoodness!! We felt like we just walked into to heaven!! It was warm and sooo inviting!! It was cozy and the decor was perfect!! Honestly from that moment until we left 5 days later... Was perfect. All you have to bring is your food and clothes. My husband has a very stressful job, this was perfect for him. We also chose this particular cabin because of the spiritual renewing we were looking for. Our entire vacation was divinely laid out for us. We thank you Carl and Ester for a retreat that was life changing in ways I can't even explain. Again we THANK YOU!! We will be back!
Blessings!!

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.
