About Gwen Morris

Hello! My name is Gwen Morris. My husband, Richard is retired from a 26 year Air Force career and we are both retired from Civil Service. We live in Middle Georgia. I am originally from Ft. Gaines GA and Albany GA. Richard is originally from San Antonio TX and Naples FL. We have two daughters, six grandchildren.

We LOVE Snuffy's Shack and we hope our guests love it too!

Gwen Morris purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Gwen Morris chose North Georgia Mountains

Of course, the first thing we noticed was the mountain scenery, it was spectacular the day we came to look at the property. When we stepped into the living room area, it was WOW all over again because the flooring, walls and ceilings are heart of pine. The kitchen is unique with wood cabinet doors made of chicken screen wire. Arriving at the cabin, we entdddered thru the front porch. After touring the cabin, we stepped outside to a screened in back porch....and a very large deck attached. The master bath has a Jacuzzi. The L-shaped loft upstairs has a small deck attached. This cabin is so unique and beautiful and our family loves coming here to relax. It's the best place in the world to be!

What makes this cabin unique

Free unlimited long distance phone calls to the USA only. Free Windstream DSL Internet service, DIRECT TV for your entertainment and family board games. Porch sitting on the screened back porch is a favorite activity for most guests, who enjoy watching the clouds form animals, angels and other forms around the mountain. Beyond the screened porch, there is a large deck equipped with a gas grill, an outdoor table with four chairs, a hammock and deck furniture. It's a perfect place for guests to gather as a family to have a sunset cookout.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As with any vacation, we will reminisce. But this wonderful place is different. Our minds will cling to the beautiful vistas, to the constant and constantly changing mountains, to the tranquility and the humanity in all of this Our hearts, however, will remain and will hold to what we have found .for and in ourselves in this treasure. Thank you.

Greatest vacation dealon the web!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary at Snuffy's Shack. This cozy little cabin had more than enough to make the weekend great. The views out of the cabin are beautiful, it was very clean and well kept. And you can't beat the price. I highly recommend this cabin.

My husband and I celebrated our two year anniversary at Snuffys Cabin. We had a wonderful time and the cabin was beautiful! The view from the cabin was also beautiful. We were sad to leave the cabin we enjoyed it so much.

Best Cabin, Best View!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you want from a cabin in the woods. 9 nights were not enough. All the comforts of home. Comfy beds, attractive furnishings, and the great out doors. Owners called to make sure we were in and settled. Great communication with them. We'll be back to visit Snuffy's Cabin again.

Snuffy's Shack for every Holiday Celebration!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with our holiday and Thanksgiving stay, we want to make Snuffy's a part of our traditional Thanksgiving celebration! Gwen has ensured that the kitchen (including an extensive cooking- ware collection) is fully stocked for a traditional four course meal, as well providing ample supplies throughout the house including bed linens, cleaning items and your basic everyday necessities. After our joyous hike on the Appalachian Trail, we enjoyed coming back to a relaxing soak in the garden tub/jacuzzi and evening by the crackling fire!

The property has many areas to both explore and walk around, in addition to a cute old-fashioned downtown that is less than 20 minutes away. My husband had a blast investigating the trails leading up to the AT, while my girls and I enjoyed relaxing and baking apple pies in the kitchen. There is literally something to do for everyone of any age at Snuffy's Cabin!

A much needed fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

Snuffy's Shack was a great place for a fall getaway!!!!! It was comfy and very homey. The rain did not dampen our spirits or mountain escape. We were able to sit on the screened porch and still view the beauty of the mountains. The kitchen was stocked with whatever you would need. We didn't really realize it at the time, but if you like hiking and want to hit the AT, just walk up the hill and it is less than .3 of a mile. We visited several shops in town. Our main attraction was the Georgia Mountain Fair in town. We were surprised with a concert with Mickey Gilley which was included in our ticket to the fair. There is plenty of privacy at the top of the hill!!! Our trip started with 2 and ended up being 4...there was plenty of room to accommodate all of us comfortably. We can't wait to return here on another trip.

Cozy mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the best cabin we have stayed in, the kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed to cook.. The back porch and deck were perfect for coffee, eating, and grilling, and plain relaxing.The mountain views were lovely. The bed was amazingly comfortable, and the room was dark and cozy. The cabin is within short distances of waterfalls, and shopping, lots of things to see and do. Gwen was very nice and helpful anytime we had a question. I plan to do a mother daughters weekend as soon as we can.My husband and I will be back again and again. Thank you for your kindness Gwen an Richard
