ACORN LEDGE LODGE - SPECTACULAR EAST BROW LOOKOUT MTN VIEW

Cloudland Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-7). Central AC/Heat

This is your opportunity to experience all the ambience of a fully-modern log cabin with that old-time fairy tale charm, deep in the woods of scenic Lookout Mountain. The view of Shinbone Valley below provides a pastoral glimpse of nature at its most magnificent. The cabin features wood carvings and ironwork by local artisans in every detail and at every turn. The front steps greet our guests with acorn finials on the rail. Through the hand built barn-style front door one can glimpse the ironwork turkey chandelier hanging gracefully from the cathedral ceiling of the living area. Up the cabin stairs with its hand carved acorn newel post is the loft, which boasts a hand built and carved pine queen sized bed with four stately acorn finials. And Daisy the wooden bear cub clutches the cabin's massive center post high above her human guests.

On chilly winter days the cast iron stove and old fashioned quilts give all the comfort you could want. Turn off that central heat and cozy up to the stove. Plenty of starter pine and stove wood provided for your first night's fire!

In spring, the scent of blossoms fills the air. On rainy days, enjoy the woods, anyway, on the huge screen porch. There the patter on the metal roof will lull you to a gentle doze. The old porch glider is the best bed in the cabin.

In summer, huckleberries and blackberries line the path to the lower deck, and new mown hay spills an irresistible scent into the country air on the cattle ranch leading to the cabin.

And in fall, you will feel each morning like you have awakened in the middle of a golden bowl of sunlight.

Get in touch with yourself and your family. This cabin has all the comforts and conveniences of a modern kitchen and bath, laundry facilities and heat and air, but none of the distractions of intrusive modern life.

Craftsmanship and imagination fill the cabin. Books and games line the shelves. We suggest that you leave your city cares at home and inhale all the restorative peace that nature has to offer. Relax, unwind and unplug!

And Sara? The cabin looks wonderful-it is spotless, as usual, but the little touches of potted flowers is lovely. I truly love this place! Let the unwind begin.....

Thank you again for sharing this wonderful little space with us!

HI, I'm Sara. I am a business owner in Jacksonville, Fl. I grew up in Georgia but have been a Floridian for 40 years. Visiting the mountains is a particular pleasure of mine, and I hope you will enjoy it, too!

Sara Moore purchased this cabin in 2008

I have enjoyed visiting the mountains of my home state, Georgia, since I was a little girl. I was an active Girl Scout, as was my sister and my daughter. All of us were campers at Camp Juliette Low for girls in Cloudland, Ga. When the chance presented itself to buy a cabin in the area, I jumped at it. The log shell was built as a labor of love by one man over the course of ten years. However, when he was unable to complete it, my close family friends, who are local artists, bought it and completed it in 2007, adding their own unique artistic touches.

The view of Shinbone Valley is breathtaking. The original owner created a lower deck 200 feet down the mountain, where the sunrises are unparalleled (they even say that he slept there while he was building the log shell). Seasons each show off their natural best. There is usually at least one light snow in winter, and the cast iron stove is wonderful at keeping the entire cabin snug. In spring, the earliest Amalancher tree blooms in the dooryard. In summer, there is no better snooze than on the old glider on the sleeping porch. This little cabin accomodates any size group, from the couple on their (second) honeymoon, to a family of seven seeking to renew their bond. It's terrific for kids. The area boasts a cattle ranch that is as well maintained as any in Georgia. It is home to several summer camps, the closest being Camp Juliette Low, a Girl Scout camp for girls, and Valley View Ranch, one of the premier equestrian camps for girls in the country. Walking or hiking is always a treat. And fishing and horseback riding are favorite activities of the local folks.

MOTHER OF THE GROOM

  • 5 of 5
We loved the cabin! It was charming, cozy and gave us a restful place to enjoy a bit of "downtime" in the midst of all the wedding festivities. Sara was so nice to work with, and Lisa had the cabin ready with everything we needed to ensure a comfortable stay.
I would love to stay in this cabin again!
Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Deberah! It's a real pleasure playing host to such terrific guests. And Lisa was especially gratified to have somebody appreciate what a thorough job she does cleaning the cabin for me. I added a few sentences from your email about cleanliness to me in a little review on here, too. Believe me, I do not take her for granted! Nor do I take my wonderful guests for granted, either. I hope you have a wonderful spring and summer and that you will be back visiting the cabin again, soon! Fondly, Sara

OUR CHRISTMAS GIFT

  • 5 of 5
This was my first Christmas without my mother so we decided to do something different. Acorn ledge lodge was our gift to ourselves...the best gift ever. From the moment we walked in, we felt the warm, cozy, welcoming feel of the cabin. The cabin decor is charming, the smell of wood and leather, and the warmth of the wood stove made a wonderful holiday. The cabin was very clean - which was important to me and the kitchen was well stocked with goodies. The porch is wonderful - a spectacular view - bring your binoculars...and at night the lights from across the valley are amazing. Sara is a wonderful host-from-afar. She is very informative and funny...definately easy to work with. You leave feeling you have chosen a jewel and made a friend.

OUR NEW FAVORITE SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Acorn Ledge for our anniversary. If you are considering renting this cabin, you will not be disappointed. There's a reason almost everyone gives it top ratings, it's just that great. This is not your run of the mill cookie cutter cabin. It's all about the details. The construction is beautiful, tasteful and rustic, and the decorating and amenities are first rate. Your senses will delight at the smell of leather and wood, the sound of rain on the metal roof, the view from the deck, the feel of the breeze through the doors while relaxing under a quilt, and the warmth of the wood stove. It is truly one of the most relaxing places on earth. My wife and I got up early one morning to watch the sun rise from the deck, and were treated to an amazing meteor shower. I don't know if Sara orders that for all her guests, but it was magical. I also enjoyed reading the notes from previous visitors in the journal on the desk. Like many of them said, I cannot wait to return to this amazing place!
We did have one minor issue at arrival that couldn't have been foreseen. The only reason I mention it is to point out that Sara immediately addressed the problem and had it fixed with an hour. You, like myself, will appreciate her willingness to do everything within her power to make your stay as wonderful as possible.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! Your wonderful review really made my day! How gratifying it is to know my guests have really enjoyed themselves, especially on a special occasion. No, I wish I could say I can order up a meteor shower for all my guests with the snap of a finger. (LOL) But I'm thrilled you had that experience. Happy Anniversary! I'm looking forward to hearing from you again soon. Sara

WARM & COZY CABIN!

Warm & Cozy Cabin!
  • 5 of 5
Thank you Sara for sharing your lovely cabin with my family!!! Everything was perfect! The cabin was beautifully maintained and had all the amenities to make our stay comfortable. We felt like we were staying at a friend's house. Being far away from our home in WI, your welcome letter was very useful and much appreciated! Thank you for all the information in regards to the cabin and the surrounding area. The views from the porch were amazing! Our favorite part was listening to the down pour of rain and storms outside while the kids played on the porch. We would love to visit again!

GREAT MOUNTAIN GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Charming cabin feels like home the minute you walk through the door --- my girls said it reminded them of the homestead in "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman"! We loved the screened porch, especially in the early morning with the mist and clouds below us, and in the late evening with the katydids chirping and the lanterns glowing. The "extras" were most appreciated --- bottled water, granola bars, teas, shampoo, paper goods --- and the cabin was spotless and well cared for. There was plenty of room for 6 of us plus the dog, and we will definitely return!

This is horse country! A list of local stables is included in the info on nearby state and national parks. There are plenty of great restaurants and antique shops 20 minutes west in Mentone, AL...Believe it or not, the only winter skiing in AL or GA is in Mentone! Hang gliding in Rising Fawn. Also wonderful caving activities in Valley Head, and underground Ruby Falls in Chattanooga, especially appeals to little folks.

Notes:
COZY WOOD STOVE-- FIRST NIGHT'S WOOD PROVIDED from October through March. Newer (5 years old) cabin in an old-timey setting, creating a unique ambiance. Modern central heat and A/C. Modern bath/shower and kitchen facilities. Tasteful but fun antiques lend an unusual feeling to this little gem of a cabin. It has a vaulted ceiling and all-pine interior. Ladies, the 'cute factor' is irresistible! This is truly a getaway haven. It is secluded, and yet every aspect of safety has been considered. Each area has a smoke detector and fire extinguisher. Well-marked roads are paved right up to the last one and the cabin number is prominent. Local law and rescue are minutes away.
