A beautiful large rock wood burning fire place, just perfect for those nippy nights!! The creek is literally 10 feet away and adds such a great quality to the house.

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 10 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 is 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 plenty of light shining throughout. The sky light windows really add that feeling of a bright and airy home. It 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!!!!

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet peaceful getaway this is the place. From the creek that is just outside the door to some fine local restaurants we had a really good stay. The cabin was very clean and you could tell the owner took a lot of pride in her property.

Great getaway not too far away!

  • 5 of 5

Mountain Rest is tucked up under a mountain with a stream just steps from the back porch. We saw deer each morning picking their way upstream! Although other houses are near, the landscape provides a feeling of seclusion. The house is located within 15 minutes of parks, sightseeing, and shopping.

The house itself is spacious and comfortable without being ostentatious or theme-driven. We enjoyed our stay!

A Great Little Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Mountain Rest Cabin. The setting was lovely, and the sound of the rushing creek was very relaxing. The cabin was very clean and comfortable, and it was well-equipped with everything needed for a weekend away. It's close to town, so anything you do need is within easy reach. It wasn't as private as some cabins; however, we'd stay there again because of the convenient location and peaceful setting.
