About Billy Toups
Lisa and I are both semi-retired but seem busier than ever. Together, we own Georgia Dance Conservatory in Marietta; she is the dancer/teacher and I change the light bulbs. Seriously, we have GREAT folks working with us at the studio and the demand for our time there is limited. So, when we are not with our children and grandchildren, Lisa creates 3 dimensional, mixed media art pieces that she displays and sells at art shows. In my "spare time", I sell and install flagpoles through my company Mountain Flagpoles. Our biggest enjoyment, however, comes from living in the Blue Ridge mountains near Blairsville, GA. Not only is the pace slower, the temperature is lower. Thank God for these beautiful mountains!
Why Billy Toups chose Blairsville
Tranquille Cottage is named after the french word for tranquil. Enough said! My blood pressure drops when I drive into the driveway and I am betting yours will too. Located in the "Land of beautiful mountains and friendly people", Tranquille Cottage offers the solitude of the mountains and, at the same time, the convenience to all the mountains have to offer. Within 30 minutes are the Appalachian Trail; numerous waterfalls and hiking trails; three glorious lakes and an untold number of creeks and rivers; Richard Russel Scenic Parkway; and Brasstown Bald, the highest point in Georgia. Within 15 minutes are wonderful restaurants, great shopping, and other special attractions.

Our 5 night stay at Tranquille Cottage was exceptional! The cottage was beautiful, and the upscale finishes and décor were exactly as pictured on the VRBO website. We have rented many vacation units over the years, and this was definitely our favorite. The cottage was spotless, and the owners were so gracious and accommodating – even texting to make sure that we had arrived safely on the day of our check in. We especially enjoyed our coffee each morning on the lovely enclosed front porch which allowed us to take in the sights and sounds of nature at its finest!! The owner provided great suggestions for dining and sightseeing, and the Blairsville location provided easy access to great shopping, dining and gorgeous scenery! We found the area to be the perfect balance of simplicity, serenity and upscale attractions. Thank you, Billy and Lisa Toups, for sharing your lovely cottage with us! Our stay was perfect, and we look forward to returning in the future!
Two week stay...
Loved this cabin setting in the Chattahoochee Mountains. Endless places for walking, fascinating art pieces (inside and out), and luxurious accommodations, yet in the midst of nature. Wonderful stargazing as well.
We enjoyed the ambiance of the property, inside and out. Overall a lovely experience for our first booking with Homeaway. Will definitely be bback.
Perfectly situated. Very secluded. Modern, and clean. Comfortable. Owner was extremely responsive to questions and last minute requests. We have rented MANY cabins in the area and this tops them all. We will not stay anywhere else.
The cottage is just precious. It is beautifully adorned. The deck is great for that morning cup of coffee and the porch is perfect for a little afternoon reading. We do like that the property is in a gated community. Based on other reviews, we expected a little more seclusion and were a bit surprised when a tractor pulled up beside the cottage. This is a wonderfully tiny place to get away!
Tranquility to the Max
Quality & comfort all of the way. The owners are as Great as the cabin and the furnishings. Nothing was left to chance. Thanx for allowing us to stay with you.
