About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

We understand that your pets are part of the family too. We don't charge extra for you to bring them but we do require copies of your dog's most recent vaccinations as well as a recent receipt for flea medication. (Frontline, Advantage, etc.) This is for your safety as well as the safety of our other guests. We have TONS of room for your dog to safely run and we even provide the tennis balls and water dishes!

*Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate cats due to allergies.*

The Butterfly Ranch is a light filled cabin nestled on a quiet lot just twelve minutes from downtown Highlands in Scaly Mountain which is the Atlanta side of Highlands. Located at 3800ft. Highlands is a temperate rain forest and our temperatures are generally mild which makes it a popular retreat from the Atlanta heat. There is ample of room to play outdoor games or just sit and watch the wildlife. We get LOTS of deer on our property and there is great bird watching as well.

There are two 'pick your own' berry farms within walking distance and an honor system fruit and vegetable stand for fresh local produce.

We have provided bocce balls, a croquet set and some cards and other games.

Our goal at The Butterfly Ranch is to provide a spa-like experience in the woods. We have tried to think of everything.

Thank you! We had a nice time. The area is beautiful. You had everything we could have needed at the house. The house was so cozy and very well decorated. We will definitely be back.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice! My only complaint was that we were only there for 3 days! The dogs loved running on the property and swimming in the pond. We enjoyed the grill and relaxing with the fireplace. Thanks for making this a comfortable, inviting place to stay!

Perfect getaway home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location and beautiful property. Thanks for hosting us and our dog. He LOVED playing ball in the front yard and hanging on the beautiful porch while we relaxed. The home was wonderfully equipped for us and we appreciate your attention to detail. Exactly as pictured. Thank you so much for sharing your home with others.

Small home, peaceful community with deer

  • 4 of 5

Small house, outdoor covered porch dining. Just right for retired couple bringing dogs. Updated bathroom & kitchen made it nice, too. Really enjoyed watching the deer eating apples early morning & evening.

Disney World For Dogs!!

We had the best vacation here at the Butterfly Ranch. My husband, two dear friends and my dog Ike spent a week here. So wonderful the property was so clean and I spent most of the time freaking out that Ike was going to mess something up in the house but he was the perfect gentleman. The owner suggested a day hike to Hollow Creek falls just a beautiful place two falls on this hike and very remote I think we were the only ones for miles. I highly recommend this place if you are bringing your dog. Thank you Danielle for making this possible and can't wait to come back next fall. JA
