About Mary Beth Yamnitz

My husband and I grew up in the Tampa Bay area but have always chosen the mountains as our vacation destination. We find the mountain scenes breathtaking. We love the mountains so much that we decided to build our own vacation home in 2008. The slow pace and southern hospitality keep us coming back year after year.

Mary Beth Yamnitz purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Mary Beth Yamnitz chose Carters Lake

Talking Rock Creek Resort is the definition of serenity. The 'quiet' is a rare find. The property is completely private, but only 20 minutes from shopping centers,restaurants and grocery stores.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy the creek, naps in the hammocks and the fire pit. You can completely get away from it all and immerse yourself in the beautiful mountain scenes within Talking Rock Creek Properties. Much of our time is spent relaxing on one of the decks, but when we get out we enjoy antique shopping in quaint downtown Talking Rock, Jasper and Ellijay and Blue Ridge. Near by Carters Lake is also a favorite, if you love the outdoors you'll love this area. Hiking opportunities are plentiful. Fish for bass, trout, catfish and brim in Talking Rock Creek.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and myself stayed in this cabin three nights with my son, his wife, daughter and son, and our small "four-legged" baby. We had plenty of room - inside the cabin and out! The cabin was very clean, decorated so cute, beds were very comfortable, plenty of amenities. We enjoyed the firepit and the chiminea. Wish we had had more time but perhaps next time. We definitely will come back to this cabin. My dealings with the owner were great! The owners take pride in their cabin and it shows.

Awesome cabin with views and excellent owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience at this cabin! The owner is very nice and accommodating. The decks are awesome places to relax!!! Comfy beds for all and great for babies since the main floor has the extra bedrooms so there are no stairs (going down) to worry about. Very private cabin and it is in a beautiful gated community with ALL paved roads - a rare thing for mountain cabins! We have stayed at many cabins since it is our favorite way to vacation and this has been one of the best!! Thank you again Mary Beth!! We will be back!

We visited this cabin the week of Christmas. I just cannot express what a fabulous time we had. This is an absolutely beautiful place. The view from the cabin is breathtaking, especially in the morning as the sun makes its way over the mountain ranges. The middle track of mountain turns the most stunning shade of gold. It is phenomonal.

There is a creek on this property, that you must get to by your car, and it is quite a steep drive, but worth it. We had our small dog with us and she had a blast pouncing through the leaves and wading in that icy water. It was very cold the week we were there and the kids were thrilled to find little pockets of ice along the creek and spent hours skipping rocks. We hiked down the hill by the cabin, spent every afternoon around the outdoor fire pit making smores and just talking to eachother in a way that our busy lives don't allow. We spent the evening playing games around the table and watching Christmas movies with the a crackling fire in the fireplace. My children even trucked in a 3 ft "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree the first day that we put in a pail and decorated with a string of lights. It was a precious memory.

We did not see a bear, but saw the most beautiful buck with a full rack of antlers. We have never seen an antlered deer before.

Enjoying this area so much, we spent one afternoon driving the mountain looking for our own "track of land" to buy. Didn't make any commitments though. We plan to revisit the cabin in the summer.

The driving directions were spot on. It couldn't have been easier and the cabin was nicely stocked with kitchen utensils and lighters for the fire pits. There was even a log ready to be lit in the fireplace upon our arrival that cold evening.

The best thing about our trip is that we were driving home to Florida on Christmas Day after spending the week there, and awoke to snow on Christmas morning. Our children were beside themselves. They have never seen snow. They made tiny little snow men and we all had a family snowball fight before we left. The view of that snow falling from the huge windows of the cabin into the trees and all along the mountains was breathtakingl

This was a celebration trip for our family in honor of a two-year breast cancer survival adventure and we just feel so blessed to have met this milestone and to have had this experience as a reflection of what we have discovered truly matters in our lives.

Beautiful Thanksgiving views

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for a family Thanksgiving getaway, the views were worth the 9 hour drive from Florida. The house came well stocked with fire wood but we did have trouble getting it to light, luckily we did bring a few starter logs per the owners suggestion. If you have a few people staying at the house if you're sleeping upstairs you can hear activity going on downstairs. The house is definitely secluded, about a 15 minute drive to grocery store, gas station etc. a great place to get away for some peace & quite.

Perfect mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this cabin! It was very well cared for and extremely private. The views from inside and outside of the house were beautiful. We enjoyed great fires out on the deck and in the the cozy great room. Bring smoore supplies! Lots of opportunities for hiking nearby. The hill leading to this cabin is a little challenging upon leaving, but doable and it is well worth the effort! It is rather remote, so it's best to bring all food and supplies with you. I highly recommend this cabin-you won't be disappointed. Even the dog loved it!

We would like to thank Mary Beth for allowing us to share her slice of heaven. Can't wait to go back again. We spent two weeks traveling the mountain roads in all directions. The road in and out is just a little but scary but our truck handled the steep climb with no problem. Bring ALL your food and clothing and you are good to go! As the write up tells you there are no close food stores but plenty of them about 20 miles away. The cabin is beautiful and provides everything you need to include your firewood. There is a great Chinese Restarant, Peking Gardens, in Jasper where we had lunch three times. Wonderful food at a great price.
