Big Canoe is a gated mountain community. Quiet and beautiful and impeccably maintained to respect the beauty of the unique setting of the area. There is a community center and facilities in the heart of Big Canoe, including three lakes, a community beach and rock slide, two large outdoor pools plus a fully equipped fitness center and an Olympic sized pool. Their is an additional charge for use of these facilities but as our guests these costs are relatively nominal. There is a large outdoor tennis facility and 27 holes of championship golf. These are also available and reasonably priced for homeowners of Big Canoe which we will gladly pass on to our guests. There are dozens of walking trails that traverse the 8000 acres that make up Big Canoe -- with over 30% permanently set aside as green space. There are several waterfalls all of which can easily be walked to on well marked wooded trails.

Wonderful Home & Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for a long weekend in February with our two children and had such a wonderful time. Big Canoe is a beautiful setting and we can't wait to see it when all the trees and greenery are back in bloom! It was so quiet and relaxing and the kids really enjoyed finding each of the waterfalls that dot the area. All were within short hiking distance and one was very near the house.

The home is immaculate and tastefully but simply decorated. We weren't looking for anything fancy just a place that was near us, easy drive from Atlanta, and a place where we would get what we were promised and what we paid for. This home and the hospitality of the owner met all of these criteria perfectly.

A Great Place To Relax

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent the week enjoying this beautiful home. It was very clean and spacious. The owner was very accommodating and responded quickly to any questions we had. The winding roads are a bit confusing at first but by the time we left we could get up and down the mountain pretty well. I recommend this home.

Great Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a wonderful week at this lovely home in Big Canoe. We have used VRBO numberous times over the past few years - and this is one of the few times that the house actually EXCEEDED our expectations, and the reality was BETTER than the pictures!! With three kids ranging in age from a very active 6 year old boy to a pre-teen girl - this vacation had something for everyone - lots of hiking (several waterfalls within 15 min hike), exploring, hanging out by the pool, reading on the lovely tree-house-like deck, playing card games, doing puzzles - we all had a fabulous time. Big Canoe offered a plethora of activities, the house was beautiful and comfortable and the views were breath-taking. Make sure you carve out time to visit Amicalola Falls - stunning! The Mexican restaurant just across from the North Gate was excellent too (this coming from two Texans!)

I hope we can come again sometime SOON! Thank you, thank you for opening your lovely home to us!
