About Bill Saylors, Jeffrey Saylors

Our family has enjoyed this special gem for over 9 years. There is always something magical about this place. You feel closer to the stars at night, like you can reach out and grab one. The cool evenings are amazing as fireflies endlessly dance amongst the mountain landscape. During the day, the mountain views offer a burst of tranquility with Carters Lake touching the foot of the Appalachian's. We have made this place our home, our special place away from it all.

Bill Saylors, Jeffrey Saylors purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Bill Saylors, Jeffrey Saylors chose Georgia

The area is full of history. Since we like history, mountains and relaxing tranquility, we have found that our family has loved this place each and everyday. Its nestled amongst some of the most sublime scenery, but yet your a quick 20 min drive into town. Talking Rock Creek Resort has creature comforts throughout the mountain community that will keep curiosity yearning for more. You can't just come here one time and never return. It really has it all. Time to unwind and take in what nature has to offer, while you have all the comforts of Home Sweet Home.

What makes this cabin unique

Close to everything. But yet secluded in your own little piece of heaven.

Plenty to do within the Talking Rock Creek Resort, as well as Carters Lake across the way. We like that we're close to the Main Entrance (1/2 mile) so we can be on our way quickly when we go sightseeing or etc.

This property met all of our expectations! If you have a chance to stay, you will definitely enjoy i

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this cabin was everything we hoped it would be. The furnishings are very comfortable and the views are amazing, with room for everyone. From the time we arrived up to our check-out the family that owns this property were very helpful and attentive, they made sure that if we needed anything they were accessible. We had a little hiccup with the a/c unit and they had the repair man out immediately. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your cabin.

Peace at its finest, cozy cabin and a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (my husband, my 3 children aged 9, 6 and 1, my mother, and my brother) spent Christmas and New Year's Eve at Walela Lodge. We had a wonderful time and felt really comfortable there. Everything needed is provided: fully functional kitchen, washer and dryer, some board games, tv, wifi, dvds and vhs, books, sheets and blankets of course, ... There is a fenced area perfect for the dogs to go out. The owner was extremely quick to answer when we had a question or concern and recommended a few places that we could visit. The area is lovely and if you are looking for a place to unwind and recharge your batteries, Walela Lodge is the perfect spot. Yes Walela Lodge is not a luxurious cabin (referring to the one negative comment) but it offers plenty. The little imperfections or issues we might have had were really not a big deal and we were able to fully relax and enjoy our stay. This cabin is a fabulous deal seeing how many people can sleep in it and the fact that you can bring your pet for no extra charge!

Owner's Response: We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at the Walela Lodge. It has provided these experiences for many travelers like yourself, to get the Peace at its finest! It is not only very Cozy, but it has all the amenities both inside and outside to make this wonderful place a must stay location in the mountains. It definitely is a great deal when you consider just a single night stay at a hotel costs more per night than it is per night to stay at the Walela lodge. And you get a WHOLE HOME. I'm sure you liked the close proximity to getting to the front security gate. We're actually one of the closest homes to the gate. We hope to see you again real soon.

Cozy, relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The views are spectacular with plenty of room on the deck for viewing. Cozy den and space in the 3 bedrooms for all of us. The cabin was clean and well stocked with essentials. Great Thanksgiving getaway! Be sure to go to the upper damn park if you visit!

Long family weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property! And what a view! Very clean and cozy. The three levels gave us all our own space and privacy! Also very quiet to just sit on the back deck with a cup of coffee and relax. Very nice!

Lots of issues, don't waste your time!

  • 1 of 5

We had several issues and we tried to contact the owner and he would not reply. He would reply to you prior to your stay bit when we got to the cabin and had problems he wouldn't return no calls.

The basement room was so hot we had to bring the mattress upstairs to sleep. The toilet in the basement wouldn't flush correctly. The front door lock is about to come off. We had to use a ice chest to keep our milk and eggs cold. We found scorpions in the pots and pans. This cabin is so cluttered up you can't walk without moving, doesn't match one bit. It's like they just buy stuff from garage sales and place it in the cabin. I'm giving you my honest opinion if I would have knew half of what I just wrote I would have saved my money, so please listen to me if you don't want to waste your time.

Owner's Response: We have 2 cleaning ladys that differ with your claims. We have ten 5 star reviews that also speak otherwise. The fridge is less than a year old and is working fine. If you are afraid of a dead scorpion you need to stay out of the mountains and if your kids or yourself stop up the toliet you should know how to use a toliet plunger. You are the only one that has complained about being too hot down stairs. Your review next to our 5 star reviews will not hurt our reputation too much . Most people know that certain people always look for something to complain about. You had my cell phone number and could have contacted me at anytime. Why didn't you call. I am sorry you did not have a good visit.
