About Leanne Walasek
Owner and Georgia Real Estate Broker who loves the outdoors wants to share my paradise with you. I am a small business owner, a frequent traveler, a sports enthusiast and a nature lover. I know once you step on the property, you will fall in love with it like I have. I am currently in the midst of a personal sabbatical, working at seasonal jobs I love, meeting everyone I can and will soon write about my experience in the loft of the cabin. In the meantime, please enjoy my Daves' retreat while you can.
Leanne Walasek purchased this Cabin in 2002
Why Leanne Walasek chose Morganton
A short trip from ATL will find yourself in the middle of the Chattahochee National Forrest. Once you visit, it will become very obvious how lucky I was to find this cabin.
What makes this Cabin unique
I recommend coming prepared with at least a few days of groceries. Once you arrive, you will not want to leave. Even though the nearest grocery store is but 15 minutes away, you'll want to leave civilization behind for a least a few days. First order of business after putting up the groceries is to pour yourself your favorite beverage and sit on the front porch swing. Unwind. Relax. Decompress. Next, familiarize yourself with the house. Pick your bedrooms. Become one in the treetops as you gaze out the giant loft windows. Make yourself at home. You will soon find how easy that will be. Peak at the basement. Plan your downstairs game time. Maybe a little wager at the pool table. Bring your Wii or X Box to hook up to the gigantic TV. The kids won't surface for hours. Next fix yourself your favorite meal. My favorite, a big spaghetti dinner. The open kitchen and living area provides a great gathering spot. Of course, hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill is a crowd pleaser. There's a fire pit next to the carport, for your safe campfire. There are plenty of lawn chairs to sit and roast marshmallows. Take a hike down Daves Road. If you continue past the house, this will lead you up Gork Hollow to the top of Picklesheimer Mountain. There are beautiful views up there. The walk is peaceful, through the tall pines and oaks, past the mountain feeder creeks embraced by dense ferns. You might even come upon a few deer. Be adventurous and explore the area. Embrace the north Georgia mountains. Fish, hike, shop, dine, raft, and do some scenic driving. Make sure you visit all the websites listed. With the numerous things to do, you might run out of time if you don't plan! OR you can just stay at the cabin and relax!

The best time we have had as a family in awhile
So beautiful and filled with fun and adventure!! Plus the hot tub is perfect after a long day
Great cabin in the woods
Awesome place the owner was very friendly and able to help us. The house was decorated for Christmas which I loved and was as described. I will say if you like to play pool the pool table was not level or really able to be played. Other than that great place to stay.
Holidays in the Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains
My family and I very much enjoyed our week during the holidays here. Just a few helpful tips for prospective renters - no Keurig (not a big deal to us), both ends of the driveway have a pretty steep incline, bad weather may make it difficult for the average vehicle (we had a truck), also be sure you only communicate with Owner through Homeaway , so you both have record of your conversations.
The home itself and the location where exactly what we were looking for. Thank you Leanne.
We loved this cabin and truly enjoyed our time there. We spent an early Christmas there with our 4 children. The cabin is beautiful, spacious and very comfortable. Leanne had a Christmas tree up, so we were able to enjoy that as well. The location was perfect, everything was really nice and just what we were looking for. The only downfall for us was that the weather was not so great - no fault to anyone, other than Mother Nature. It rained 2 out of the 3 days we were there, non-stop. We had plans to do some hiking and to also go snow tubing at Snow Mountain. Unfortunately, our snow tubing reservations were cancelled the day before due to the bad weather. That being said, we spent more time in the cabin than we had planned on and I think the only thing we would have enjoyed a little more would be better TV's. The main TV in the living room is very old and very small, a tube TV. And although we did not bring a gaming console for the downstairs TV, my husband said it's not compatible with newer systems (ours is a PS4). Like I said, we didn't bring it so it didn't matter - just a mention for future guests. The cabin is lovely and we hope to make it back again one day.
The cabin was perfect for our needs. My parents and brother's family were all able to come and stay comfortably. We celebrated our Christmas early while here. There was a Christmas tree setup before we arrived. We visited Blue Ridge here and the Asks Adventure area is not too far. The neighborhood area is quiet and there is a pond in front of the cabin.
