Georgia Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom/1 Bath-Beautiful Farm Setting (Sleeps 7)

The Pinhoti farmhouse is a little house that used to belong to a big farm a long time ago. The farmland still surrounds it, so you get to kick back on our broad, back deck with the refreshing breezes blowing over you, and look out over the beauty of the fields...blissful in the knowledge that you will never have to mow them, unlike the yard you left at home. Our neighbor who owns the fields kindly maintains them for our viewing pleasure (and possibly his own reasons). ;-) We have some great big, old trees on our lot, the kind with lots of character and a sense of history about them, and a whole lot of birds flapping around in spring and summer. The house has quirky charm that couldn't be tamed by recent renovations...everything that can be crooked in it, is...but that's all part of the cuteness. It has a front 'settin'' porch with rockers, in addition to the side and back decks. There are four bedrooms in it, two of which are snug little upstairs rooms that seem like kid hideouts. The area is low-traffic, quiet...though you may witness an action scene of the neighbor playing with his grandkids in the field now and then. We call it the Pinhoti farmhouse (when we aren't calling it the crooked little farmhouse) because it's only about eight miles from the biggest trailhead, Snake Creek Gap, of the Pinhoti trail (which is many, many miles long). This trailhead has a large gravel parking area, with plenty of room for horse trailers, should you happen to have one. You can hike, camp, bike and ride horses on this trail, and there's a big mountain bike race held there every year. The farmhouse is about ten minutes from Dalton and its stores and restaurants, and about thirty-five minutes from Chattanooga, which has lots to do and see.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family would like to thank you for opening up your beautiful farmhouse to us. We truly enjoyed the comfort and relaxation we found here! Our only complaint is we needed more time to spend in this loving home. With that said we would love to return and hope you will have us once again. The pics of the home did not show the true beauty of the farmhouse so very glad we got to see in person.

Comfortable Farmhouse- great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely stay here again in the future! Felt like I was going to a family member's home out in the country. It was clean, well decorated in a Victorian style with all the comforts of home - away from it all! The owners were easy to work with and left detailed instructions on "how to's". The kitchen was well stocked to make family meals and you can enjoy looking out over the neighbor's farm land (as far as you can see from the back deck). My daughters loved the A frame rooms upstairs (and played up there for hours) - perfect for a family get-away!

Perfect we loved it

  • 5 of 5

Came up here for a mountain bike race and brought the family. The house was clean and decorated in a unique and antique way. The house has charm and we couldn't be happier with it.

Great little farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the farmhouse with a group of friends this past weekend, and it was great! There was plenty of room for all 7 of us. We were out rock climbing all day, so it was so nice to get back to a cozy, warm house to relax. The kitchen was really well stocked, so we could make group meals. While we didn't get to spend much time on the grounds, the porch was great, and the view of the frosty field next door in the morning was beautiful. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Little Farmhouse in Georgia

  • 5 of 5

A little far out. But we enjoyed our stay. The house was immaculately clean and well furnished with period furniture. Loved the decor. The yard could have been a little better manicured but it rained all week. When I contacted the owners, they were very prompt to respond and extended our stay. The only negative was no blinds or shades over the windows. Other than that , the pictures accurately portray the farmhouse. Would certainly stay there in the future.

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This old farmhouse was so perfect for our family. It was absolutely like the pics and was even better than we expected. We spent a lot of time just sitting on the porches visiting. We ate in all but 1 day, the kitchen was perfect! Even had Nana make homemade tortillas! The views are peaceful.and calming, just what a vacation should be. Plenty of room for guests and even a few toys for the little ones. We couldn't have been happier with this place and Highly recommend the Pinhoti Farm!!

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing time in your farm house. The home is exactly as described, extraordinarily clean, and equipped with everything you need. There are many options in local Dalton, Georgia and it's the perfect driving distance to visit Rock City, Ruby Falls, & Chattanooga.

We would definitely stay again! Thank you!
