My group rents a cabin in the North GA Mountains every year for New Years weekend. Once I saw the pictures of 1/2 Way to Heaven, I knew this would be a great cabin for us to rent. The community is very nice, and even though it is located in a community - you feel very isolated, as this is the last house and it is perched much higher than the other houses it is close to. The drive is steep, but the roads are in great condition, so it is not hard to get to. The cabin is a great set up for a group. Lots of seating in the main great room. The kitchen is HUGE - which is great for serving and preparing meals. It was also extremely well stocked for a rental. The beds were all extremely comfortable, and the house was well stocked with linens, towels, and any amenity you would need. Dave (the owner) was super helpful, and even added a sports package to the satellite for us so we could watch the football games we wanted to see. Also, the wifi was much faster and more reliable than what we are used to in rental cabins. The view is AMAZING. The first day we were there was clear, and we could see all the way to the skyline of Atlanta. I really have absolutely no complaints about our stay there. If our party stays the same size - we are planning on staying there again next year!
Beautiful home equipped with everything we needed for ages 7 to 63. The tour Dave gave us when we arrived not only helped as orientation, but by adding trivia and details about the house made it more like a warm welcome to a friends home.
This cabin home was Amazing! So beautiful inside and out. The view was incredible. The owner Dave walked us through everything about the home and made sure we had what we needed to enjoy our stay. He even had 2 bottles of wine waiting for us when we arrived. All 12 of us ladies had such a wonderful relaxing weekend ...We can't wait to go back...
Our stay was unforgettable, spending time with family, close friends and creating memories during Thanksgiving. The owner, Dave, was very welcoming and gave a quick tour of the cabin noting items of interest in and around the property. Whether you are spending all of your time at the cabin or venturing out to Jasper, Ellijay or Blue Ridge, we definitely recommend staying at this stunning house as it was a perfect getaway.
We had a great weekend at your mountain house. The views were spectacular and the house is great. It is even better than the pictures. We enjoyed a fabulous girls weekend. We especially loved the cozy outdoor fireplace. Thank you!
The house ( you can't really call it a cabin) is beautiful and exactly as depicted. Everything was clean and fresh and all the amenities are there. Upon arrival the owner, Dave walked me through the house on the phone covering all the systems and equipment.
At the end of a beautiful winding mountain road, the view is incredible. Has to be the best view in the area. You can see Jasper and even the skyline of Atlanta 65 miles away. If you're not familiar with the area, the roads could be challenging to maneuver at night.
We loved the wet bar with icemaker, but our favorite spot was enjoying the view from the outdoor family room with gas fireplace - whether having happy hour or curled up with a book late in the evening.
We enjoyed the local area, train ride from Blueridge, apple barns in Elijay, etc. But our favorite place was the cabin, including hiking the local trails.
We would recommend this to anyone looking for a great getaway.
