Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Log cabin in the woods of the North Georgia Mountains ----- We call it 'A SIMPLE LIFE'. Pay via On Line Booking or via Check.

Quiet & private property situated on 2 acres, located in log cabin community on Sunrise Mountain (not Sunshine Mt). Other cabins are on 2 acre lots that can only be seen from the road - you will have lots of privacy, yet not be isolated. Open with high ceilings in living room. Wood floors, walls, and ceilings with ceiling fans. Fireplace.

Full width SCREENED porch with porch swing and rocking chairs overlooking woods and mountains (beautiful sunsets) -- year-round view. Relax in the hammock.

Cabin is (fairly) KID-FRIENDLY if needed (our little ones are not so little anymore). In closet: High chair, Potty chair, safety gate, Pak N Play. Small chairs on porch -- few breakables. For older kids (& you!) there is a tree swing (toddler bucket available). FOOSBALL TABLE as well!

Pets are NOT allowed, No Smoking inside.

Nice Campfire area near cabin, with 2 level tent sites - fun for the kids or parents who want a convenient camping experience. Our twin boys love camping with dad, while mom is happy to read a book on the screened in porch swing.

Minutes away are many outdoors activities (rafting, tubing, hiking, zip-lining, Blue Ridge Lake & beach) and you'll also enjoy the quaint town square with lots of antique/gift shops, tea room, candy/ice cream parlor, etc. Lots of Great new restaurants!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ali & I came here for peace and sweet fellowship. I have loved sitting in my PJ's and talking & sharing while the weather outside was in the teens. I loved going to the drive-in movies in the snow and wrapped in blankets and layers of clothes laughing at chick flicks. This has been so sweet, fun, and safe. I feel our friendship has taken a deeper and more meaningful turn. Thank you for sharing this special place with me.

Exactly what my husband and I needed!

  • 5 of 5

.....I'm just not sure there are words to describe this magical place. From the moment you open the door, there is such a strong feeling of love, kindness, laughter and joy from all the souls that came before us, inside. This is a place where all emotions come together, a place where my "being" felt peace. The cabin itself has beautiful well thought out spaces for families and friends combined. But, it was perfect for just the two of us alone.

Yes, I could go on and tell you all the physical aspects of this somewhat remote cabin, nestled deep in the woods.....but I want to tell you what it did to me/us on the inside. You see, I have had some very sad losses in my life, especially recently. My son died at the young age of 27 yrs. old. My father, then my mother died just recently within a month and a half of each other. Then, while on this vacation I learned that MY dog, my beautiful doberman died on the second day of this trip, back at home. Xena, my dog just turned 5 yrs old.

But even more than that, I needed to know....to feel if my husband of almost 25 years still loves and wants me. As I would look around this special place called a "cabin", I realized it was here just waiting for US. It is want we needed most. To get away from the reality of our situation and just bask in the solitude and loving feeling this cabin so happily provides. The biblical references tucked in the smallest of places inside, made it seem as if I was resting in the cradle of Gods arms. Rest is what I felt. Reality is what I need to face now and because of this cabin I feel the strength to face whatever will come.

I still don't know the outcome of what will happen to my husband and our marriage, but, I do know that whatever happens- it will be ok. And once again, I am stronger because of it. Thank you

Peaceful, relaxing & therapeutic.

  • 5 of 5

The McCown's cabin was well equipped. Very relaxing and a great view of the mountains from the back porch. Only downfall is getting up to the cabin with a FWD car was a challenge. Recommended RWD & AWD cause the hills are tricky but overall I enjoyed myself

Fabulous location, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We just left this beautiful home where we stayed for 5 days. I will say it exceeded my expectations. The home was well equipped and had everything we needed. The location is great to be able to enjoy everything Blue Ridge, Ellijay and Blairsville have to offer. It was also a good location to explore other areas in North Georgia and we took advantage of as much as we could. The owner was very responsive to questions and had all of the information readily available for us. I would highly recommend this home and I hope we get a chance to come back.

Perfect!!! Rent now!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our second anniversary at the McCowns cabin and we loved every minute of it. The property was gorgeous and secluded. The cabin itself was perfect. It had a very homey feeling (also had plenty of room since it was just the two of us) and had everything we could possibly need. All we had to bring were clothes and food and we were set. The hot tub was great and we loved the huge swing in the back (it was great for our inner child). We also made smores and hobo dinners over the campfire. We stayed for four days and dreaded leaving that last day. It was so relaxing and just what we needed to get away for our celebration. The surrounding area was nice too. We went hiking to waterfalls one day and went into town another day. The town had a bunch of great places to eat and shop. We would highly recommend this cabin for everyone! It's great for families, couples, or groups of friends. Stop looking at other cabins and rent this one for your vacation now!!!

Relaxing the Simple Life way

  • 4 of 5

We stayed Valentines weekend for three nights. It was cold outside but outside but warm and cozy inside with the no fuss gas fireplace. The high never got above 28 so we never visited the hot tub but we did throw a couple steaks on the grill. The cabin is spacious and well appointed. The views are long range and the first night the sky was full of pinks and oranges and magnificent. The master queen size bed was very comfortable even for a princess and the pea type woman like me. Being only 15 minutes from Blue Ridge with pretty easy access was great. Our Prius had no trouble going up the steep way but the alternative works great for those who don't want to try it. The Fire and Ice Festival was amazing with some 20+ booths with home made chili. Harvest on Main prepared a requested beer pairing dinner as a Valentine surprise for my sweetie. It was outstanding. Mercier Orchard didn't have my favorite gold dust apples but they did have what is now my new favorite, Crimson cherry apples. We visited several of the new to us wineries. Fainting goat is a must see for views and Chateau Meichtry for charm and music. Thank you Bruce for sharing your cabin.

Owner's Response: Thanks for making your weekend the envy of many. After over 15 years going to Blue Ridge, you have let us know about even more things to see & do. The hot tub is great when outside temps are cold. It is always good to hear how much people enjoyed their stay.

Little slice of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful weekend at A Simple Life! The cabin was perfect, very clean with all the creature comforts of home. We even ventured onto the swing which was so fun. There is even a game cabinet with tons of choices for a night of friendly competition. We spend our morning in the rocking chairs with our coffee watching a horse being trained off in the distance. Town is only minutes away with some great little shops. Dog Too was my personal favorite, if you have a spoiled furbaby like we do you must check it out. This was the perfect weekend getaway. The cabin was truly a little slice of heaven. We will definitely be back.
