Appalachian Lady Bug is a 17-year-old home built by local craftsmen. The cabin is adorned with reclaimed barn wood, handcrafted metal work, masonry and woodwork. The result is a true taste of Appalachia, yet it hosts all the conveniences of a modern home. The amount of artistic detail and variety of wood and stone used in the construction of the cabin give it a purely “one of a kind” feel. The cabin is newly renovated and decorated in folk art from the area. This property is uniquely nestled in the National Forest which can be observed from the covered porch and an outdoor kitchen area which opens into a large patio and fire pit.

About Sarah Reynolds

Hi folks! Thank you for your interest in my cabin. A bit about me... I am a native Georgia girl, a mom, a wife and a librarian (no bun and glasses for me, though!) My husband and I live 30 minutes from the cabin with our 2 children and our crazy dog Mangus.

Sarah Reynolds purchased this Cabin in 1999

Why Sarah Reynolds chose Dawson County

This house is near and dear to me, and I lived here for 12 years. After re-marrying, my husband and I wanted to keep the place and thought it would be great to fix it up and share it with others. It is one of those places that just makes you feel good. While the inside is lovely, I have probably spent more hours on the porch just 'being' than anywhere else. It is cool in the summer, lush in the spring, glorious in fall, and as cozy as can be in the winter.

                                                            • Need a weekend away from the hustle and bustle? Come watch the sunset over the ridge and sit on the porch listening to the creek. Come see how the stars look and how the mountain air smells when you get away from suburbia. I welcome you to an unforgettable stay in one of the most serene places on earth, a place we have come to call the Appalachian Lady Bug. The cabin is ideally suited for two couples with kids or a small group. Hunters, anglers, bikers, hikers and horse riders will find this an ideal base camp for sporting activities. It has two bedrooms, each with a sleeper loft and independent full bath. The kitchen is fully equipped and the living area is appealing and cozy. Most of your time, however, will probably be spent outside on the spacious deck or patio.

                                                              Wonderful Cabin Getaway!

                                                              We could not have been happier with this cabin. The cabin was the perfect setting for a family get together and some time away. Everything was well laid out and kept in good working order. Should we be back in the area again we will definitely be looking to see if this quiet little place is available.

                                                              Great cozy cabin

                                                              The cabin was even better in person. It was stocked with everything that we needed and the beds and furniture were very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

                                                              The Cabin is Very Complete!

                                                              We had everything we needed at the Lady Bug Cabin. The sleeping lofts were a real treat as were the many outdoor spaces. Loved the decor. Thank you, Sarah.

                                                              Cute cabin!!!

                                                              Property has a lot of character all over the property! Loved window in front of sink in kitchen. Bathrooms were really nice showers and beds were comfy. Thanks for having me & my family.

                                                              Quirky & cozy!

                                                              This is our 2nd visit to this sweet, handcrafted cabin. We love all of the thought that the owners clearly put into the details of this home. It feels like coming home, and it makes for a very low-stress vacation.

                                                              Great Proerty - Clean and Quiet!

                                                              This was a great property. It was very clean and quiet. A great place to get away for a while.

                                                              The location of the cabin offers seclusion, yet is easily accessible to active vacationers. It is located only 4 miles from Amicolola State Park, 12 miles from Dahlonega, and 15 miles from Dawsonville. The immediate area offers a myriad of outdoor activities including hiking, hunting, horseback riding, and fishing, but is also a great place to just sit and read a book.
