The perfect getaway-hideaway with an incredible Mountain view from our picturesque setting above the very scenic Wollfork Valley. Family owned with attention to every detail.

Our Guests said, "Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful cabin. We have loved our stay & hope that we can take advantage of coming & staying in the future. This place has a great energy that relaxes and comforts all that stay. We did not get to enjoy all the sights, but there really was no need. We found that this place offered all the beauty, peace & tranquility that one could hope to find. This has been the perfect cabin escape & we leave recharged & refreshed. Thank you, Michael & Kellie, SC

Sure glad we found you! The cottage is beautiful & I have never seen any place so clean – neat and well decorated. You are delightful landlords and we really enjoyed our stay. Mary & Dick, FL

As fate would have it, we have had a memorable weekend at Cottontail Cottage. We experienced the incredible scenery, really amazing! It was also a treat to sit on the front porch and do nothing! Thank you for being so kind and we will also treasure our time here at your “little piece of heaven.” Barry and Joanna, Myakka City (Sarasota), FL.

Thanksgiving at the Cottontail Cottage. What Luck! We have been to this area many times before but it was especially rewarding to share its beauty with my parents. We could tell that you put a lot of work into your planned day tour of the falls & sights. It was an excellent day and your effort & guidance were well appreciated. We can’t decide what part of the trip was our favorite. The cabin, the view, the falls or you two making your guests feel like family. We think a little bit of all of it made for a wonderful mini vacation away from reality. Debbie and Peter, you have really outdone yourselves at Cottontail. Thank you for letting us share your little piece of heaven. Now we know why you feel that way too. God is all around you here. Rose, Alan & Jake, Tallahassee, FL – Phyllis & Alfred,

About Peter and Debbie

We came to the North Georgia mountains for a visit and fell in love with the majestic beauty of these Blue Ridge Mountains. We moved here because of the people! The good folks here are so friendly, warm and caring. We have been renting Cottontail Cottage in the Valley for more than 12 years and based on customer comments, we have maintained a consistent 5-star excellent rating with Home Away and VRBO. We treat everyone who stays at our cabin as if they are a guest in our home. We have met some truly wonderful guests and lucky for us, a few have decided to move here and we have become very close friends.

Just being in our Mountains makes you feel like you've found a little piece of heaven! Read on to see what our guests have written about their stay at Cottontail Cottage and their our own "little pieces of heaven" which they have discovered......

Why Peter and Debbie chose North Georgia Mountains

Cottontail Cottage has been an extraordinary and wonderful experience, beginning with your warm welcome and gracious hospitality. Our weekend in Rabun County has been memorable beyond all expectations! We enjoyed the full moon rising through the gap on Friday night and the heavy morning mist on Saturday. All this beautiful nature and the warm cozy cottage will definitely have us visiting with you again. Randal & Lisa, Atlanta & Folkston, GA

What makes this cabin unique

This has been a perfect getaway in the mountains! Rabun County and Cottontail Cottage are absolutely gorgeous! Our favorite moments have been sitting on the front porch rockers taking in the gorgeous view and sitting in front of the fireplace each night. We took a few day trips which were wonderful. I think I took 3 rolls of film in the 4 days we were here. We will have to save the rest for next year when we plan on coming back to Cottontail Cottage! Thank you for your hospitality. This cottage is perfect! Mandy & Edwin, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Guestbook comments from the owner

We don’t want to leave! It’s been a wonderful little getaway! Cottontail Cottage is first class; it’s the first cabin that we’ve stayed in that wasn’t furnished with used stuff and hand-me-downs! Warm ambiance, great view and lovely accommodations. So glad we found you and can’t wait to return. Thank you, Ann, Barb and Sherri, Orlando, FL

Adorable!

  • 5 of 5

Cottontail Cottage was the perfect place for a get away weekend from Atlanta. My husband, daughter and I just loved this place! The hospitality of Peter and Debbie is unmatched by any place I've stayed. They had delicious homemade cookies and beautiful fresh flowers for us when we arrived. Anything you could possibly need during your stay was thought of. A charming cottage very close to Clayton where we enjoyed dining and also close to Dillard where we went horseback riding and had a great time. I left something at the cottage and they mailed it to me before I even realized it was missing...so nice! I hope we get back there soon.

We spent most of our time on the porch, however the cottage was comfy and had everything we could possibly need.

A relaxing and a cabin in the valley, this is the place! The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need and even worked with us on our late arrival! We were two couples and the cabin is cozy but we felt comfortable and had plenty of room. Coffee in the morning with the "smoke monster" and watching the geese was a favorite thing to do. Plenty of hiking and we even went horseback riding! So if you can't decide on what VRBO cabin to chose, this is it! You won't be disappointed and Peter and Debbie, we will be back! Thanks for sharing this wonderful property. Glenn, Barbara, Jody and Allen.

DELIGHTFUL!!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun, the cabin is clean and stocked full of everything you will need. We only missed a tea kettle, BUT we labored so hard and just boiled some water in a pan...haha!!

The view is lovely and serene. Bird watching is a joy from the screened porch. We were greeted by Peter with homemade cookies, fresh flowers and kind hospitality! We loved the area of Clayton and Rabun Gap, close to surrounding towns and beauty overload! I think the ONLY thing i would mention is that IF you are sensitive to moth balls and the 'aroma' they give off , just light some scented candles. We noticed some beautiful large moths hanging around the outside of the cabin so maybe that is why . It doesn't take away from the beauty , and awesome cabin experience but if you are allergic or sensitive, it's just good to know.. The cabin is still a 5 star!! Thank you Peter and Debbie for providing so much enjoyment to my family. We made some wonderful memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you for all your kind words about Cottontail Cottage! Your's was the first request for a tea kettle.....so on your next visit you will find a brand new tea kettle at the cabin; we truly appreciate great suggestions. As for the moth balls, we had to search a little; but we found two large bags of moth balls which were most likely left by the previous guests. Some hikers believe that loading up their socks with moth balls will repel snakes, although it hasn't been proven. Had we seen the moth balls, we definitely would have removed them and we are so sorry that you didn't call us the minute you caught your first whiff, because we would have run over and gotten rid of the smell instantly. We look forward too seeing you and your family again very soon!

Cottontail Cottage is a haven for peace and quiet if you need it. The minute you walk into the door you feel like the house envelopes you in a hug, you sense the peace in the house and the views are gorgeous. The owners have done beautiful job of decorating the interior with everything you might need. The house has three bedrooms which are lovely and the two baths are filled with bathe and shower. A bath is wonderful after a full day of hiking the mountains in the area. There are books on the shelves along with games for the family and lots of wood for a fire on a cold windy day. The location is central to Clayton, GA, Franklin, TN., Highlands, NC and so many other places. The kitchen has everything you need and is beautifully decorated, for those nights you just want to stay in and this house is so warm and welcoming there are many days we did just that. I highly recommend this house for couples and families. You will not go wrong staying here. We come back here as often as we can, Peter and Debbie will take great care you.

Cottontail Cottage has assembled a HUGE notebook full of places to go and things to see; including brochures and maps! Thanks so much for a lovely relaxing stay. We especially enjoyed the calm of a grilled dinner on the porch after our whitewater rafting trip. We’ll definitely be back – maybe next time with the kids! Perry & Cindy, Lexington, SC
