Overview

North Georgia Mountains House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This three bedroom, two bath cabin-style home is in a great location between Dillard, Georgia and Highlands, North Carolina. Only 15 minutes from either town, this vacation home is also just five minutes from Sky Valley Golf Resort.

Perched on two acres, at a cool comfortable 3900 foot elevation, above beautiful Blue Valley. (ELEVATION is the key to being comfortable in the mountains in the summer.) The cabin features breathtaking 150° long range views and spectacular sunrises. Weather permitting, the lights of Greenville, South Carolina, some 80 miles away, can be seen at night. You won't have to hike or drive to a spectacular view - it's right there on your deck.

The fully-equipped home is designed to sleep six in comfort. Great views from every room in the house. Plenty of windows and French doors keep the house light and airy. Natural oak floors, maple cabinetry, pine ceilings and trim give it a warm cabin feel. We think you will be very pleased with the furnishings and decor. No Smoking Inside, No pets allowed.

We have been visiting the mountains every chance we had for five or six years, renting homes, cabins and motels. This house was built, located and equipped with those experiences in mind. Our goal is that all of our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable vacation.

Why Lloyd or Holly Hepler chose North Georgia Mountains

If you live in the Southeast this is simply one of the easiest to get to high elevation areas in the mountains. Not only is it the closest but it has the added benefit of being one of the nicest areas in the mountains. Anything that you would find in the mountains you can find right here. The exception being if you want to go snow skiing I would not look at anything south of Maggie Valley. My wife and I looked for over two years for a location and we always came back to this area. It was the standard and it couldn't be beat. It simply offered the most bang for the buck which makes it a great bargain for you in the area.

Nice Surprise

  • 5 of 5

Doing vacation rentals always creates a certain amount of anxiety -- this trip was no different. Once again it was a wonderful experience. Trying to google and determine what the rental would be like will not be the best approach. Lloyd's rental was a total surprise even after all my research. We loved the location and the view. The cabin was very well set up. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need -- this is unusual. The views even from the kitchen area were great. Don't be afraid of this unit!

If you are looking for a hot-tub and firepit - this might not be for you. It was perfect for us. My grand daughter loved going down to the back yard looking for "gems".

We loved our hikes on the Bertram Trail and to Rabun Bald. We loved being able to get to Highlands so readily -- the drive was beautiful. I guess you would have to say we loved everything.

The weather was great and the leaves were perfect. I really could not have asked for more.

We will be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The house was just as shown and in such pristine condition. It was very well equipped and so organized. It was rainy off and on but the views were still fabulous and there were plenty of movies and games to keep us occupied. We enjoyed wonderful veggies from Osage market in Dillard and even stopped by to take some home. One of the best homes we've rented. We'll definitley be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Bill and Shielia for taking the time to write a great review. Glad to hear that you did discover the local produce. It is probably the best you can get. This is a great time of year for it. The fact that you definitely would return in the future is the biggest compliment you could give us. We will have to get better cooperation from the weather next time. Thank you, Lloyd & Holly

This is absolutely the cleanest, best outfitted cabin we've ever had the pleasure of vacationing in. The owners were delightful to deal with and contacted us to insure that everything was acceptable and that we were happy with the accomodations. View of the mountains from the verandas is breathtaking and the proximity to Highlands and Dillard is perfect. This property is A-plus in every respect! Hope to return next year.
