About the property

2 Bedrooms 2.5 Bathrooms Seasonal Mountain And Lake Chatuge Views

The Wren's Nest is a beautiful retreat in a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. The Chalet is brand new and definitely shows the attention to detail throughout from unique twig work, plush white towels, Egyptian cotton sheets. We have created a very cozy atmosphere in our cabin and we're sure you will feel right at home. You can spend sunny days walking in the neighborhood, or read a book on the front porch swing. There are books of all sorts, movies to watch and board games to play! Or you can travel to Hiawassee for antique shopping, or shop at the wide variety of local shops. Hiawassee is only 31/2 miles from your front door. So please come have a visit, we would love for you to be our guest.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We arrived about 6 p.m. on Friday and love your cabin. Many thanks for the gift. We will try to book with you again. Your home is such a peaceful retreat. Hopefully we can return to the Wren's Nest and be able to spend more time in the mountains. Your retreat was a return to the "hills" we love and enjoy.

Nice Rental, but not so great checkout process

  • 2 of 5

The cabin/bungalow was located in a convenient location and appeared clean upon arrival. There were no hand towels in the bathrooms and only two bath towels per bathroom. The beds were not very comfortable, the pillows were old, flat and hard. We found other pillows that were also flat that we wanted to use in addition to what was on the beds, but there were no extra pillow cases. There were no paper towels, dish soap or extra trash bags.

The bath accommodations upstairs were a bit strange since there was not a shower and only a bath tub.

However, on our check out day things did not go as expected. We were in town for our daughter’s wedding that took place on Sunday the 9th. We were scheduled to check out on the 10th at 11:00 am. We had most of our belongings packed and in our vehicle except for all of the kitchen items. We had to go to the location that the wedding was held the night before early in the morning on the 10th, but came back to the rental property at approximately 10: 30 am to find a Lexus parked in the parking spot. My fiancé went up to the front door and went into the property to find a lot of the items we left in the kitchen thrown outside in the garbage. All of the unopened items, were moved and it was obvious that the person that was inside the property was planning on taking the unopened items. The person that was inside the property was the cleaning person. My fiancé came back outside and informed me what was going on. I proceeded to go back inside the property, but the cleaning lady locked us out (it was still prior to 11:00 am – check-out time). I knocked on the door and the cleaning lady was clearly aggravated that we were still there. I asked her where the items were and she walked me outside the back door and uncovered the trash can. I told her that we had not finished gathering our belongings and it wasn’t 11:00 am, but she proceeded to argue with me at which point I told her that I would contact the owner of the property.

This was a very disappointing experience. It wasn’t like we only had a few items that we may have forgotten. The cleaning lady should not have been inside the property prior to check out and even if it did appear that we had “checked-out” there should have been some type of precautionary measure to prevent this! I do not plan on renting this property again.

Nice cabin, although much smaller than the photos show

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was nice, very easy to get to from both sides of 76. The living room seating and beds were comfortable. We let our kids (18 yr old son and 17 yr old daughter) have the master upstairs because the bed was very big. The bed on the main floor is definitely not a king as it says it is. I'm not a fan of the shower head coming down from the middle of the ceiling but that's just my opinion.

I don't understand why there were no extra trash bags, no laundry detergent, and no knives for food prep.

The dishwasher was full of clean dishes so I had to put those away before I could load it and the dryer had clean towels and sheets that I had to take out to use the dryer.

The pictures posted make the cabin look much bigger than it is.

Clean, comfortable and quiet. A great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Started off with the rental not being completely ready. Trash bag on kitchen floor and bed not made. Called the owner and they responded immediately. Turns out housekeeper had a family emergency and had forgotten to finish up. She was called and was at the rental in 15 minutes. Everything was finished in 15 minutes. Kudos for getting this taken care of quickly. Our stay was everything we had hoped for from that point in.
