Amazing photo opps. (beyond your wildest dreams) of waterfalls at Amicalola Falls State Park, this is hiking the Appalachian Trail (1 plus hours - beautiful drive). Also, fairly simply put, we offer you the best R-and-R you can ask for.

Was beautiful clean and comfortable
We really enjoyed our stay and both wished we could have stayed longer. Melanie and Mike were wonderful hosts. We were there for a good friends wedding and were super tired when it was over. We slept like babies better than a hotel bed. The surrounding were picture perfect and very relaxing. We will be back! Thank you both for having a lovely home. 😊
Awesome Home and Hosts!!
Melanie and Mike were wonderful hosts!
The guest house is immaculate and the beds are very very comfortable. We were in town for a baseball tournament at Lakepointe. It was a little bit of a hike to get to the various fields we Played at throughout the week, however worth it to come home to a tranquil setting . The community amenities were a plus. The Lakeside swimming dock and the pools were wonderful.
There was not a full-size kitchen to easily prepare meals however, it was sufficient enough to prepare light fare. They are soon getting a washer and dryer in the garage area for guests to access… in the meantime Melanie was amazing and offered to do our sons smelly sweaty baseball uniforms every night we returned home. That was actually my favorite part. ♥️ We would 💯� return!
Thank you Linda ♡
Mike and I truly loved hosting you and your Family.
Such an exciting time for JT!
You are all welcome back anytime ♡
Renters Beware! This is a lovely home BUT you have no kitchen or eating area, limited TV, NO privacy
Please be very careful renting this property. There are a lot of extra fees that will raise the price considerably. Read all the fine print in the ad, the pictures are not all accurate. On the positive side the house is very nice with tasteful decor. However, we did not feel at all comfortable. The owners complained about problems with previous renters (makeup on towels, drinks on tables). This set the tone for a very uncomfortable visit. The place was very clean but you were told to "leave the place as you found it" even though they charge an exorbitant cleaning fee. There is virtually no kitchen. The table and chairs in the photo appear to be in a nice dining area but they are actually in a hot garage. There was not dining for six on the deck as they state, just a plastic cocktail table with some chairs. There was no large gas grill on the deck as pictured, just a small charcoal grill in the garage and we were told to use it in the driveway not on the deck. So there is no place to cook or eat. The TV has no cable or Satellite. You are supposed to be able to use your Netflix account but we could not get the TV to work at all and there were no directions. We also, had no extra blankets or linens. There is no privacy. You can see through the glass front door right into the owners living area and vice-versa. We were so uncomfortable that we checked out one day early. We were told we would get a refund since they were new to VRBO and still learning. However, they emailed us later and reneged on their agreement to do a refund. I am sorry to say these owners will nickel and dime you. They will give you the bare minimum and charge you the maximum. We have never left a bad review before but we feel we have to warn others to be careful when renting here.
On their departure this family said if I refund them additional money they will leave a good review; this, after I already discounted their stay in the beginning. Extortion.
We do everything possible to give our Families a perfect stay; this Family wanted money, only. Beware owners, they are not truthful, or very happy people.
They will not be welcome back!
Feels like home
Mike and Melanie were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home while staying with them. Their house is beautiful and in a really peaceful area. We used the community pool, kayaked on the lake and had a wonderful dinner at the highlands grill. Lakepoint baseball field is about 40 minutes but a peaceful, easy drive. Worth the drive to stay in a more secluded location.
Thank you Danielle! We truly enjoyed you and your Family and invite you back anytime.

Everything Promised and More
Excellent stay with Melanie and Mike. Plenty of room for our group and the house was spotless. Very relaxed setting with nice views. Mike and Melanie went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and even provided a grill for us to use for dinner and brought over breakfast in the morning. If we visit the area again we will be back.
Lake Arrowhead has something wonderful for everyone; however, if you want to journey for a day and visit the spa, wine country, or hike and view stellar waterfalls, we are happy to offer suggestions. ~feel free to Google the below~
