Nicholson Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms includes Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Serenity awaits you at the Luxury Log Cabin located just 12.25 miles from the heart of Athens. This cabin was built 16 years ago and is located on a private 20 acre watershed lake.

No matter what brings you here you will enjoy the solitude of being the only home on the lake. Many visitors come just to get away from the daily grind but most come here to be close to UGA activities! You can watch the game from the comfort of the cabin or be in the middle of Sanford Stadium in minutes.

While you are here you may enjoy fishing in the lake where there is an abundance of Brim, Crappy, Bass, and Catfish. You can sleep late and awaken to the beauty of the lake through the master bedroom window then go out to cruise the lake on kayaks or the jon boat. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils for any occasion. You can relax on the wraparound porch and enjoy meals indoors or out.

Theaters, shopping, you name it and it's there. The Commerce Outlet Malls are only 10 minutes from our home in case you have shopping on your mind!

After dinner, you can relax by the lake and enjoy s'mores by the campfire as you unwind from the day. Hmmm...sounds good!

We prefer to answer all questions and complete reservation via email through this site. Our reservation calender is up to date. If your date shows availability you can book online. Thanks!

About Jamie Ramsey

I grew up on the 60 acre farm that surrounds this beautiful cabin. I built the cabin and lived there during college at UGA. AFter college it became a family getaway until I decided to share it with others through vacation rental.

Jamie Ramsey purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Jamie Ramsey chose North Georgia Mountains

We are the third generation of my family to own this property. The home is located on a private watershed lake that was built in the 1960's.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying the cabin. My oldest son has Asperger's and is very sensitive to smells, bugs, and what ever else he perceives as not being clean. He said he could live here! That is a huge compliment!!! Said it was best place he's ever been. The other three kids having a great time too!

Great cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time relaxing in this cabin on the lake. Much more spacious than we anticipated and there was plenty to see and do for all ages. Our small children (ages 2-8) had a great time on the lake, exploring the woods, and spending time on the play set.

Serene Getaway...

  • 5 of 5

A very pleasant stay in a lovely cabin, surrounded by the tranquility of nature. Great for a family vacation, the cabin has every thing you need to make you feel at home. Our time was filled with fishing, canoeing, barbecues and marshmallows by the fire. Morning coffee on the porch was beautiful. Great location too. Drove to Atlanta for some museum time and spent time in downtown Athens which is a gem. Thank you for providing a wonderful stay.

Lovely secluded cabin by the lake

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The cabin was clean and well stocked. The master bed was super soft and comfortable. The loft area was perfect for the kids! Direct TV, wifi, games and movies for relaxing. If you like scary movies be sure to bring cabin in the woods! Deck and outdoor areas have ample seating, perfect for eating outside or just enjoying nature. Beautiful view of the lake! Love this place, it was easy to book and the owner responded great to all of my inquiries prior to our arrival.

A lovely spot! We had a very relaxing place.

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a wonderful time, and we thoroughly enjoyed the place. A couple of things I would like to mention......I have mobility issues, so there were some limitations. My walker did not fit through the bathroom doors. A stand alone shower would have felt safer for me. Getting in and out of the tub was risky. A big help would be a railing on the steps by the back door.

We did have a problem with the Internet connection. That was a disappointment. Not sure if you had any control over that.

In the kitchen, I think some things could have been cleaner. Some of the shelves need cleaning, and the waffle iron had food caked on it. It took some hunting to find the cord for the electric griddle. For the amount of money we paid, I expected a bit better.

The towels were super soft; the beds were very comfortable, the setting was gorgeous, and we were able to find what we wanted on the tv (we wanted to watch some obscure soccer events...which we could!). Having laundry facilities was a big help. The "boys" all enjoyed the fishing.

As I said, overall, it was lovely!

Wonderful time in a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the beautiful cabin with my niece and her family for the GA Spring Game. We had a great time sitting on the porch, roasting marshmallows, riding in the boat and kayaks, hiking through the woods and grilling out. The cabin has a wonderful view of the lake. We never turned the TV on! I would recommend this cabin and owner. The owner made it very easy to access with key and remote for the gate. The kitchen had every thing we needed to make breakfast each morning. We are looking forward to returning to the quiet woods and wonderful cabin.

Hoping it is available in the fall,
