North Georgia Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6) Wl FI Available

Response time is typically within 24 hours.

Snuggled away in privacy, this cozy cottage is situated on 7 acres of tranquility and mountain seclusion. Fly Fish, hike, enjoy the cool mountain air and take pictures of gushing water falls on the beautiful Tallulah River.

If you are a biker, take a scenic ride to Hiawassee. If you are a hiker, everything from short hikes to the Appalachian Trail are nearby. How about white water rafting? Tubing? Antiquing!

The open floor plan features a family room with vaulted beamed ceiling which magnifies the spacious room. In addition to the TV, sofa and recliner, there is plenty of room for a queen size futon that converts to a comfortable queen bed. Just a few steps away is a sizeable bath. Enjoy the splendor of a garden tub in the mountain fresh air.

If you are tired of the galley kitchens in vacation homes, you will be pleased to prepare meals in this delightful kitchen that makes cooking a pleasure.

Enjoy the luxury of real wood floors through out including the living area, bathrooms and bedrooms. Upstairs are two bedrooms. The master has an adjoining bath with brush nickle vanity facuets and separate toliet/shower area. A new 32 inch flat screen TV is mounted on the wall in front of the queen size bed and there is a deck off the master. Please note, however, there are steps to the master and loft bedrooms. Although they are few in number, they are a little steep. If you have issues climbing steps, this may not be the cabin for you.

The guest bedroom is quiet and airy with lots of windows to make a bedroom light and cheery. The prettiest views of the mountain and towering hardwoods can be seen from this room. A huge screened porch runs across the front with a swing similar to Grandma's. The outside has a fire pit and BBQ grille with table.

Just out the door are 7 acres of privacy and down the hill is the Tallulah River which borders a forest service wilderness. Although the river is approximately a mile away, you will probably want to drive to your favorite location for fishing, hiking or swimming. There are beautiful hiking trails, waterfalls and great trout fishing year round.

All of this is located minutes from Lake Burton, Tallulah River, Appalachian Trail, Tate City, Persimmon Valley, Persimmon Creek Winery, Helen, Clarksville, Lake Rabun, Lake Seed, La Prades Marina, Moccasin Creek State Park and Black Rock State Park. Don't forget the HIGHLANDS, Dillard,Franklin,and Cherokee are a short day's drive. If you like playing golf in the cool mountain air, there are numerous golf courses in the area.

About Carol Owen

Michael and Carol Williams, reside in Peachtree City, Georgia. In spite of our many travels through out the world, one of our favorite areas is the Northeast Mountains of North Georgia. Our cabin is located .5 mile from the Tallulah River and is truly one of the most beautiful locations we have ever visited.

Aunt Nell's cabin is named after my Aunt Nell and it houses some of her most treasured furniture. One is surrounded by Mother Nature and beauty there and it is the place to go to get out of the 'Rat Race' of a busy workig enviroment.

Mike is retired now and I am still flying as a flight attendant for Delta.

Carol Owen purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Carol Owen chose North Georgia Mountains

We Purchased Aunt Nell's Cabin for it's serene atmosphere and for it's cool crisp nights during the summer heat. Fall is a sea of crystal warm colors and spring sports the blooms of mountain laurel hovering over the rush of water falls on the river. The ride along the River displaying its clear water of trout and waterfalls is a must.

What makes this cabin unique

Aunt Nell's Cabin sits on 7 areas whereas you can hike, fly fish or simply relax on the deck with your favorite book. The location is perfect for day trips to other areas without having to rent other hotel rooms. It's cozy decor gives you the sense of home if you wish to stay home and enjoy TV or make your favorite meal. There are two bath rooms. One on the upper deck and one on the lower level for your conovenience. Both are full baths and one has a lovely garden tub to pamper yourelf after a full day of hiking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love the addition your builder built onto your cabin. What a fabulous job with the spacious new bath, separate master and washer/dryer. "Local Flavor" is also fun. Joni's was the choice to celebrate our anniversary.

Awesome, quiet, secluded

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect, the cabin was exactly as described and spotless when we arrived.

It's the perfect base for exploring northeast Georgia. Getting up in the morning and sitting out on the porch is awesome. It's so quiet and a wonderful change from the daily grind.

The porch is also a wonderful place to sit out in the late afternoon and evening. It's completely shaded and cool; a world apart from Atlanta. In fact, it's so cool we seldom ran the A/C and never did at night. We would open up the windows and let the cool mountain air flow through.

Our only regret was w stayed so busy that we didn't get to try out the fire pit (with some fire wood already there!). I'm sure we'll be going back.

Very nice, furnished cabin, but similar to camping. enjoyed staying there, and will again. Loved fishing the Tallulah River with my two sons, and brother. Carol and Mike are very nice folks and the cabin was very clean. It was nice to have the cleaning service come after we left. Great Vacation!

Wonderful, quiet weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing, quiet weekend. That was exactly what we were looking for. The house is great. Well furnished, and very clean. Great porch with a swing and rocking chairs to just enjoy outdoors. We aren't much into hiking and that sort of thing, but the cabin is in a beautiful area to drive to several towns around to go antiquing, and just sightseeing. Many beautiful parks and places to go picnicking, within a short drive. We visited Dillard, GA and ate at the Dillard house, as well as the Cupboard Cafe. Both were very good.

Wonderful cabin

This house is perfect. Everything we needed for a great weekend. Fishing hiking, dining out all very close at hand.

Don't miss the Dillard House. The owner was very helpful, and communicated with me by email and phone to make this trip as easy as possible. My deposit arrived in the mail the day after I returned. Thanks Carol and Mike for sharing your place in the mountains with us.
