Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very precious time in Big Canoe. Staying in "Paradise" lives up to the name. Your home was perfect for our family and also on Sunday when we hosted an after the wedding brunch. The rain on Saturday was timed perfectly and made the special day a bit dreamy and the golfers got in 0 holes in sunshine. Thank you for sharing your blessings with others.

Great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

There are 3 rooms that comfortably accommodate a large group. Our favorite was the kitchen dining area! We felt like this house was more of a home rather than a showcase. The house was comfortable and was great for large groups from ages 2-82!

Scenic Setting

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place in such a scenic setting. 11 of us stayed in this location with room to spare. Lots of area inside to kick back and enjoy your favorite book, socialize with family/friends. Or perhaps you're an outside person...enjoy the two fire pits, water activities or golf!

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home! It is well stocked as we cooked all of our meals there and needed nothing extra. Firewood was delivered while we were there which allowed us to keep the fires going! We had a group of 13 with plenty of room for all! We would highly recommend staying here and hope to do so again!

Big Canoe in Jasper Georgia

Paradise was everything we hoped for!

We used this home for my parents and siblings 7 people all had thier own bathrooms. We also hosted a welcome dinner for 21 people and the kitchen had everything we needed. The views are beautiful, the artwork fantastic and the furnishings although a bit dated were first class.

If you are having a family reunion this is your host houses!! Danny was always accessible to answer any questions. Wonderful time here.

Big Canoe is nestled in the North Georgia Mountains. Our property is on the largest lake in Big Canoe, Lake Petit, and is surrounded by mountains, magnificent trees and lush foliage. Wildlife abounds in Big Canoe. Sit on the deck overlooking the lake and watch the deer wander through the yard or the occasional flock of wild turkeys, as well as, the usual squirrels, chipmunks and birds.
