About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, sleeps 6

Our home is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath which sleeps 6 comfortably. There is a Master on the main with a full bath. A half bath is off the living area on the main with kitchen and dining area. Downstairs are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds and one full bath and living area with a sofa and loveseat and TV. There are porches off the upper and lower level with a screen porch off the master bedroom. A gas grill is conveniently located on the upper deck. The upstairs living area is very cozy with a wood burning fireplace, flat screen TV, soft leather couch and comfy chairs.

Our house is on 3.5 acres of woods full of deer, wild turkeys, fox, rabbits and the occasional black bear. The sky will astound you with millions of bright stars as there are no street lights or city lights to be seen. The kitchen is fully equipped. All rooms have ceiling fans to move the mountain air through the home.

Big Canoe is an 8000 acre gated resort in a wild life sanctuary and hard wood forest. All amenities are within a short drive from our home. Hiking trails are along streams and waterfalls in beautiful forests with signs of the early inhabitants. There is a jeep trail for those who want to drive to the falls.

The amenities will keep everyone as busy as they would like. One of the three lakes has a beach area, with adjacent pool and natural rock slide in the stream falling from the lake. Paddle boats and canoes are available to rent. A second lake holds the marina where there are electric boats to rent and canoes and paddle boats. There is fishing from the shore or boat. The third lake is surrounded by the scenic 27 whole golf course and the view from the new club house restaurant and sports bar is magnificent.

The fitness center, indoor saline lap pool, indoor tennis and racquet ball courts are state of the art and impeccably maintained. The second outdoor pool has a children's fountain area. There is a playground and soccer field as well.

You have to experience Big Canoe!! It is like camping in luxury!

We are about 20 minutes away from the outlet malls and the town of Jasper. Nearby is antique shopping, site-seeing, horseback riding, river rafting and more.

Relaxin' in the Geogia Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Never having visited North Georgia or staying in a VRBO, we didn't know what to expect. We were not disappointed in the home or the location. We have family in Jasper and they stayed with us even though they lived only 20 minutes away. It was a vacation for them as well

Mornings were spent planning the day events while sipping coffee, eating breakfast and looking out at the beautiful woods and mountains During our stay we saw a bear, deer and wild turkeys. It was peaceful and quiet and most of all relaxing. The only disappointment was the fact the fall colors were extremely late this year and we only saw a few of the trees that had turned color before we had to return home.

A huge thanks to our home owners for truly a home away from home.

Family getaway time!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of eight enjoyed our four nights. The home was the perfect size, comfy, and cozy! We loved the fireplace and the stock of wood! The house was tucked away in the woods so that you didn't even know there were neighbors. Despite the fact that it rained most of our time, we enjoyed our time in front of the fireplace, watching movies, playing games, and building a puzzle. Our one day out was just 30 minutes away to Amicalola Falls. Well worth it despite the gray skies!

Sweet Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

The fall colors greeted us as we drove up the ridge to this nice little cabin . The views were beautiful at this home and the roads in the community were well paved and signs were easy to follow. Inside was welcoming and cozy . Back porches were sitting in the hard wood forest surrounding the house . All was peaceful , private , and comfortable in both sitting areas. We loved the activity areas and would definitely want to return in other seasons too!!! The grill was perfect . Thanks for sharing your sweet mountain home with us.

About Vicky Malcolm

My name is Vicky and my husband is Scott. We live in Marietta, Georgia and have purchased our second home to enjoy Big Canoe. We have two children, an 14 year old girl and a 9 year old boy. We are always available to help in any way with your stay.

Vicky Malcolm purchased this house in 2013

Why Vicky Malcolm chose Dawsonville

We love to camp in the North Georgia Mountains and have had a hard time finding private and secluded camp grounds with close access to water and facilities. When we found our house in Big Canoe, we knew this was meant to be. Our house is secluded, and has all the activities we love. Canoeing, hiking, and swimming in a scenic and natural setting with complete privacy and the safety we want for our children.

What makes this house unique

Includes free Big Canoe Swim cCub passes with a minimum three day rental, which is usually an additional fee. Swim Club is open Memorial Day weekend thru Labor Day weekend. Please notify owner if you would like to participate in this amenity.

There are three and half acres of beautiful views and easy access of all Big Canoe has to offer. Lots of space with two separate living areas for privacy. Wi-Fi throughout the home.


Car: necessary

Our house is located close to Lake Petit. It is very private, and Big Canoe offers everything you would like to do in the mountains of Georgia. The lakes and streams and waterfalls are beautiful and very accessable. There is a natural rock slide in the stream close to the beach and pool. You will feel like you have gotten away and still have all the ammenities to entertain every member of your party.

Tax Rate 15.0%
