Mountain Rest Cabin: A Feeling of Yesteryear -- Come relax and recharge with the laid back living style at a “True” Cabin. This small but quaint cabin gives you that feel of easy living’ in the North Georgia Mountains. That feeling just hits you right when you open the door. But if that’s not enough to bring you here, then how does being literally 3 feet away from a gorgeous, flowing creek sound? The creek here is definitely the main attraction. Picture a loud, up close and personal flowing creek right outside your back door. Now imagine sitting back and relaxing on the screened-in back porch reading your favorite book while listening and watching the majestic water move across the rocks. Leaving the back porch will be hard to do once you get here because the soothing creek is just heaven.

This cozy and simple cabin has a unique style by mixing the “old” with the “new.” It has a rustic Mountain look and feel with a mixture of newer accommodations for a better living style. Mountain Rest has an open floor plan with sky lights and plenty of room to move around. It also has a floor to ceiling stone fire place for those cold nights when you want to cozy up and get warm. Mountain Rest Cabin is quaint with its’ two bed and one bath availability, but makes it a perfect stay for 2 or 4. The washer and dryer are located in the bathroom for easy access. The great room has a fully-functioning kitchen, 3 barstools, a living area with a TV beside the fireplace, and a dining table which seats 4.

The sounds of the regal creek are heard throughout the entire house. Falling asleep will unquestionably be something you look forward to. Open up the bedroom window and fall asleep listening to the enchanting sounds of the creek moving alongside the house. Falling asleep to that is not only ideal, but pure “heaven” as well. This cabin is such a perfect little getaway for anyone. That peaceful and restful vacation you have been wanting to take is right here waiting for you at Mountain Rest.

About Joelle Kinsey

As residence of Towns County we have seen many people move here to retire, away from the hustle and bustle. My husband and I met here in Hiawassee, in 1996, married in 1998, and started our family in 2001.

Joelle Kinsey purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Joelle Kinsey chose North Georgia Mountains

As we raise our family, and know that one day we will be empty nesters ourselves. We decide to buy a smaller, quiet, quaint home for our own to retire in one day. In the mean time we want to share the beauty of our mountains, lakes, and creeks with others

What makes this cabin unique

We chose this property for size, and small yard.... care is quick! But, mostly because there is only 1 other home like it in the Mountains.. You can no longer build that close to the water anywhere, So it is a unique property !!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful cabin to relax in. It was decorated so festive for Christmas. That was a nice touch to have gone the extra mile. The sound of the rushing creek, crackling fire, and family made a prefect getaway for such a crazy season. Our family had a ture Christmas in the Mountains!!!!

lovely cabin by the brook.

  • 3 of 5

We had some difficulty getting the code to enter but was resolved quickly. We found unit very clean and comfortable. Did find it a bit dark during the day because of all of the trees but enjoyed the brook right outside of the house. Very enjoyable.

WOW! Relaxation Haven! Just what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I LOVED MountIan Rest. What a great place to be to unwind & let the world go by.

I had the best sleep I have ever had. We turned the air off, opened the bedroom windows and sleep came in an instant every night. That creek, I love that creek.

I loved doing yoga on the porch @ night listening to the creek & the crickets.

The cabin was in the perfect location. Secluded & private but just a few minutes to anywhere. I loved everything about it so much!

Thank you Joelle for your great hospitality! We will be back.

Overall the stay was what we expected

  • 4 of 5

The Mountain Rest Cabin was as advertised. The cabin was clean, spacious, and perfect for a small family or couple. We used the cabin as a launching point to some of the area activities. It's about 10 miles from brasstown bald the highest point in Georgia and about 15 miles to High Shoals waterfall which I highly recommend for a hike. The only thing I might change about the cabin is having less squeaky bed frames. Trying to sneak into a room with a baby sleeping was nearly impossible. Other than that thanks for everything.

Very private and relaxing. So close to the creek, the creek sounds were very peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for the three of us, kitchen was well equipped and beds were comfortable. The deck was a great place to hang out and enjoy the cool weather and the gurgling creek. Yet the property is still not far from town if we needed anything. We love this area and this place, and will be coming back soon I hope.
