Jasper House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 11)

When you book with us and return the signed rental agreement, all we ask for is your credit card number to hold the reservation. No deposit is ever billed. Once your stay is complete and the provisions of the rental agreement have been met, there is no other transaction required. If for some reason, some of the provisions are not met, the maximum that would be charged to your card to cover the cost is $200 (the standard deposit amount required). Payment for the rental cost is split into two payments...50% is due 30 days prior to arrival and the final 50% is due 10 days prior to arrival.

If you don't like to use credit cards for your rental transactions, just put a $200 check in the mail along with your signed rental agreement. I will hold the check until your stay is complete. Again, if the provisions of the agreement have been met, I will either return or destroy your check, whichever you prefer.

If you decide to use online booking and payments, 50% of the rental amount will be due at booking while the final 50% and the $200 damage deposit will be due 10 days prior to arrival. Once your stay is complete and there are no damaged or missing items, the damage deposit will be credited to your credit card.

Big Canoe, nestled in the foothills of North Georgia Appalachians, is an 8,000-acre gated community offering dramatic mountain peaks and natural woodland forest. It is first class all the way with 27 holes of world class golf, three stocked lakes, a state-of-the-art fitness center, abundant wildlife, miles of hiking trails, a pool, a children’s park and much more! (note - cost of amenities, including swim club, is not covered in rental cost) Come see why 'Great Escape' is the perfect getaway for multiple families with children or just a quite getaway!

Located in Laurel Ridge, a cluster community of 44 homes, 'Great Escape' is a luxurious mountain home surrounded by nature at its finest with beautiful mountain views. As well, within walking distance to pool, lake with beach and paddle boats, water slide, restaurant, general store, park, church, tennis courts and fitness center with indoor pool and a quick drive to the new Lake Sconti Clubhouse, Golf and the Jeep trail.

'Great Escape' is cozy and comfortable. It consists of three levels. The main level has a big open kitchen, breakfast area and den, which makes for easy entertaining. The full, gourmet kitchen has granite countertops, tumbled marble backsplash, and black appliances. Our farm-style kitchen table seats eight people and is perfect for game night or family style dinners. The cozy den with a gorgeous stacked stone fireplace is perfect for reading, watching TV, just hanging out or listening to music. There is also a screened porch off the kitchen with a teak table (seats 6). The screened porch leads out onto the enormous main level deck, which has a complete patio set and new gas grill.

Also located on the main floor is the master suite. The master bedroom has a queen size sleigh bed, two nightstands, a dresser and an armoire, which houses a TV and DVD player. The master bath is enormous with his/her sinks, granite counter tops and an oversized shower and separate jetted tub.

Downstairs on the terrace level is a gigantic recreational room with a 55" HDTV and a pool table. The entertainment center has surround sound, a DVD/CD player, and VCR. There are 3 oversized sofas, which seat 9 comfortably. The terrace level deck has a bistro set and various benches for hanging out. Also on the terrace level is a bedroom with a queen sleigh bed, two nightstands, an armoire and a large bathroom. In addition, there is a full size laundry room with washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.

On the top floor of the house, there is a cozy loft area with DSL connection and desk (as well as wifi). There are two bedrooms upstairs, each with its own bathroom. One of the rooms has a queen bed and the other room has a double bed on one side of the room, bunk beds on the other, and a flat panel TV. As well, there is an adorable mini children's playroom / fort with a twin bed in it.

About Allen Pye

We live about 30 miles east of Atlanta in the historic city of Covington. We purchased our first vacation rental home in Big Canoe in 2007 and now have a total of three properties in Big Canoe.

Allen Pye purchased this house in 2009

Why Allen Pye chose North Georgia Mountains

This is our second vacation rental in Big Canoe. We purchased our first home in 2007 and have had great success with the rental business. We love the mountains and it's so close to Atlanta. Many mountain communities are several hours from Atlanta, but Big Canoe is only one hour. It's a short drive but you feel so much more relaxed at Big Canoe, away from the hustle and bustle.

A great weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

A great place to stay with the kids and grandkids, very close to the swim club which is where we spent most of our time. The house was nice, comfortable and clean, and the owner was quick to respond to any emails and questions we sent.

Good Space and Privacy

  • 4 of 5

This house has plenty of space and privacy on three levels. Three families with 6 adults and 5 children were easily accomadated. Young children had plenty of space to do their own things. Very convenient to the main pool with lake, cayacks, canoes, paddle boats, paddle boarding, sand beach, and rock slide adjacient .(all for same fee.) I would use again. 3 small setbacks, kitchen a little small for preparing for 11 people but easily spread out onto the deck and screened porch weather permitting. TVs are older so none were HDMI capable for newer electronics, and slow WIFI.

Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this house. We were here for a family wedding, so we all stayed on the same street. We loved the pool table and the large porches. Big Canoe is a beautiful place. We would definitely come back to visit, but would probably wait till it was a little warmer.

Great house for a large group!

  • 4 of 5

We recently visited Big Canoe and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. We met up with two other families and the three level layout was perfect as we each took a floor. The large patios were great when we needed the kids out of the house. Though we noticed some water damage in the master closet, the house was very clean!

Very nice property.

  • 4 of 5

Allen was easy to work with. Two of our group arrived one day early due to their confusion of the arrival date, but Allen graciously made the house available for them for the extra night. The lady at the front gate was also cordial to them and helpful in every way.

The house served four of our six persons very well. All six persons were over age 73 and two have somewhat limited mobility and agility. Possibly install some type of hand rail at front steps for easier access for those challenged by even two steps.

We cooked breakfast and evening meals and the kitchen had most everything we required to cook meals. Some of doors to deck areas had deadbolts that would not fully engage and door to screened porch was difficult to open and close. Beds were comfortable and most everyone slept very well.

Would recommend this place and use again. Three old grey headed couples from GA, TN & NC.
