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 Rabun Gap

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

Such a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with beautiful views. So well furnished and equipped. Doesn’t lack for a thing. As a fellow HomeAway owner, we love to see different properties. Peter and Debbie are excellent hosts and their property certainly shows it. Can’t wait to get back and enjoy the porch and valley views again. Thanks much for a wonderful stay.

Cottontail Cottage is charming!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! The cottage is clean, attractively decorated (no mis-matched hand-me-downs here) and the kitchen is the most well-equipped of any we have ever rented. Clearly, a lot of thought and consideration has gone into the comfort and ease of use for guests. The view out the expanse of front windows was lovely and it was so quiet that we slept like logs, which was easy to do on the comfortable bed. The internet speed is outstanding (very rare for a mountain rental) and allowed us to work remotely without any problems during our working vacation. Peter and Debbie were great to work with. We would love to come back and stay again.

Cozy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 night visit to this cabin in north Georgia was delightful. The owners were pleasant to work with, the cabin was supplied with everything you could possibly want or need during our stay, was clean and comfortable to relax in front of the wood burning fireplace, had beautiful views from its valley setting and fun places to explore with our dog. Would use again and highly recommend.

Full of detail, warmth and charm!

  • 5 of 5

We did not want to leave! Each room is beautifully decorated, and the outdoors impeccably groomed, it rapidly became our favourite place on earth! It is a 10 minute walk to the start of the west branch of the James Edmond trail that has a breath taking overlook of the valley which is worth the strenuous hike! We will be returning!

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
