Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful vacation!



We were totally in awe of our "luck" in finding this cabin through an online source, rather than friends or referrals I had never booked a vacation this way and was skeptical at least. The owners have excellent customer service/communication and have an incredible attention to details and hospitality. The cozy, classy decor was exceptional and hard to leave! Loved the secluded, private setting. Thank you JJ's Retreat for your part in a truly unforgettable family memory. Some tips highlights follow!



We dined at the Dillard House (total wow factor according to the teens), they LOVED Alpine Helen and Cherokie NC and meeting the Indians, the culture. Their favorite was "grubbin" at Gold N Gem's where we found HUGE rubies, sapphires, emerald among many gems and had the stones cut and rings made right there! They even liked hiking and all the N GA waterfalls and nature. They actually became antique junkies and wanted to hit every antique shop. I don't think I saw them TEXT all week!!

Stunning setting and interior too!

  • 5 of 5

JJ's Retreat is a fabulous place to stay in the north Georgia mountains! We arrived in the dark, so at first simply marvelled at how well appointed the cabin was, and went to bed. The next morning we got a real treat when we woke up to wonderful views! The sunrise from behind the mountains opposite the rear porch is stunning... and at the other end of the day we star-gazed from the hot tub. The first morning, my dad, who doesn't sleep heavily, said he had the best night's sleep for the first night in a new place / bed he'd ever had, which is quite an achievement!

Brian and Dale have thought of just about everything, and far more than most vacation rental owners usually do - it almost felt like a show home that we shouldn't be spoiling, everything was so beautiful, yet it was very homely and comfortable at the same time.

All 4 of us (myself and hubby, plus my parents visiting from the UK) enjoyed our stay and really had a hard time leaving. This is the first vacation rental we've stayed in that we have immediately wanted to go back to and take other people with us to enjoy! Truly memorable for so many reasons, all of them good :-D

I should also add that the whole rental process, from the first enquiry to the directions we were given to get there, was also very easy and pleasurable, which of course sets the trip out on the right footing.

Thank you for everything - whenever we can find the time off work (!) we will be back again, probably with different visitors or maybe even on our own, despite the place being a bit more than 2 people need!

Like staying in a friend's home

  • 5 of 5

The home is immaculately clean and well maintained. Brian was very responsive and helpful with questions and issues before our arrival. Once there, it was equally easy to enjoy the weekend with such a well equipped home. We found everything we needed for preparing snacks in the kitchen, and it is well supplied if you were to prepare large meals too. There are extra blankets, towels, soap, and dish washing detergent. The quality of the furnishing, bedding, towels, and other supplies make you feel as if you're staying in a friend's home rather than a rental property.

Superior Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This is my favorite cabin of all of those at which I have stayed. Every detail addressed made this home feel like the most homey, yet very special place. While here, we enjoyed Cane Creek Winery and a fabulous restaurant in Hayesville, the Copper Door. I would readily return with friends or my family to share a wonderful experience.

A Wonderful Christmas at JJ's Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family met for Christmas at JJ's Retreat and we had an absolutely fabulous time. The cabin was decorated before we arrived so we were able to relax immediately. I rarely feel at home in a rental but this was definitely an exception. There were a couple of rainy days during our stay and my 8 year old niece was easily entertained with the game room (as were the adults!). I would highly recommend JJ's retreat!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at JJ's Retreat for a week of class at the Wm. Holland School of Lapidary Arts. The logistics for our week was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house was well equipped with everything we could possibly need (or want) and very clean. The home was a mix of "cabin feel" and upscale, which was perfect for us. We will certainly try to grab this place again for our next class.

It would be a great location for a family retreat. Kids would absolutely love staying here due to the fact that the owners have gone over the top to provide entertainment for their guests with children - game room with Foosball, Shuffleboard, cards, movies, books, hot tub on the deck, etc... Plus WiFi.

The best part of the house for us was the cool evenings sitting out on the deck with a glass of wine without the worry of bugs. The main deck (which there are three) is screened in keeping those pesky little gnats and mosquitoes away. Loved it.
