Esther and I wanted to make it affordable and after reading our many reviews, you will understand why are guests were surprised by what we offer. This beautiful, recently renovated cabin sits on 1+ acre of wooded land on the side of a hill overlooking the Trackrock Valley. Off in the distance, the tallest point in Georgia (4,784 ft) can be seen - Brasstown Bald Mountain and directly beneath the first and second deck, one can see a winding country road that passes a white-steepled church. You can hear cows calling out to each other and many other peaceful sounds as you drink that first morning cup of coffee on the lower deck or a cup of hot chocolate around the new fire pit. A new Amish glider was placed on the deck off the master bedroom allowing you to sit and enjoy the view.

It's hard to believe that only two hours northeast of the hustling and bustling noise of Atlanta, you can find such a tranquil setting and the opportunity to escape. Town is not that far as the picturesque town of Blairsville is only eight (8) miles away. You will pass over some of the most beautiful country you will ever see as you make your way over the winding road that leads to Blairsville.

Surrounding area: There is much to see and/or do. This is a photographer's dream ... so many beautiful pictures to capture! We have seen the Dogwood season begin to open on the mountain, a red-headed woodpecker hammering out a meal, graceful deer leap across our path and the neighbors tell us that we will see our share of black bears.

You are only minutes from Vogel State Park, Brasstown Bald, Helton Creek Falls, and the Appalachian Trail. Hiking trails are close by, horseback riding at the Trackrock Stables, tubing at Pappy's and in Helen, digging for gold in Dahlonega, boating and fishing at Notelly Lake, shopping at the Premium Outlet Mall (woo hoo!), swimming at Vogel State Park, jogging in Meeks Park, and in the Fall... the changing of the leaves and the local festivals.

We upgraded the family area with a 40 in Samsung with 250 channels of cable TV. We also upgraded the master bedroom to a 32 in TV. There also is a ROKU XS. With this unit you will find Angry Birds, besides the other free stations that are supported. This unit also has an USB port, you can either bring your own movies on an external drive, or your audio files on a jump drive and enjoy the music of your choice. For additional details concerning this unit, go to www.roku.com. There also is a compact stereo with an iPod dock. A new fire pit was added in Aug. of 2011 for you to enjoy during cooler evenings. Iron and ironing board are provided. One thing I always hated was renting and not knowing what coffee filters to bring. We have a nice coffee maker and provide the cone filters. We also added a new coffee grinder in Dec. 2011.

                                                              Hi Jenna,

                                                              Esther and I are so glad you enjoyed our cabin, all we provide and even more you feel in love with the Blairsville area as we have.

                                                              We look forward having you both back as our guests.

                                                              Cozy, Warm & Inviting

                                                              The second we walked into the cabin, we felt immediately at home. It was so cozy and warm. I loved both of the back porches, it’s where I spent most of my time at the cabin. Carl and Esther were so quick to respond to any questions and were a pleasure to rent from. We will be returning some day soon!

                                                              Cozy cabin & breath-taking views - adventure awaits!

                                                              This was our first time in the Mountains and it was our honeymoon! This cabin and the sweet town of Blairsville did not disappoint. We drove from Cocoa Florida and stayed from 3/11 through 3/16 and enjoyed every single second of the trip. Time stood still while we were here and the fully stocked cabin offered us everything we needed! This trip was nothing short of a dream and I cannot wait to book the next trip.

                                                              Carl and Esther, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the most memorable trip we could ever ask for. Your kind hearts, warm hospitality and sweet card truly made my heart happy.

                                                              We enjoyed our time at Choestoe Sanctuary!! Lots of Hiking and waterfalls to see while we were there. Definitely looking forward to another stay in the future!!

                                                              Beautiful, cozy, the perfect place to relax

                                                              This cabin is AWESOME. Everything you need is there. Thank you Carl and Ester for sharing. Beautiful views, cabin is cozy, you feel at home. I will be back.

                                                              Esther and I are so glad you chose our cabin for your family and that you had a great time in the Blairsville area and all the benefits Choestoe Sanctuary has to offer.

                                                              We also loved the picture of your daughter on the Amish swing....she is a real cutie.

                                                              Thank you for the kind words and we look forward having you and your family back!

                                                              Carl and Esther

                                                              I will admit after reading all the previous reviews we had very high expectations. However when we arrived we were amazed at how much better it was than even the reviews. It has been said many times on here but you literally only need to bring your clothes. Carl was super responsive and made sure that everything was just right for our stay. I have stayed at other places through this app but Carl and Esther are hands down the best owners we have ever had the pleasure of doing business with.

                                                              Owner's Response:


                                                              Esther and I thank you for the glowing review but this is a "two way street" and you and your family were great guests.

                                                              We have tried to stock the cabin as though we might walk through the door at any minute and we both hate "cheap things", so we provide the best we can. We also try and provide items as our guests request them so many things you find are just keeping an open ear and speaking with our guests.

                                                              Looking forward having you back as our guests again and many of our prior guests are returning for their 4th to 6th visit.

                                                              Carl and Esther


                                                              Blairsville, GA, USA

                                                              Our cabin is located in the desirable area known as Choestoe Hills overlooking the Trackrock Valley. We are not a cheap cabin, just affordable! There are approximately ten (10) cabins in this area and only three are available to the public for renting. Blairsville is 8 miles away with its many thrift stores, consignment and antique shops. For the serious shopper, the Premium Outlet Mall is about an hour away and Atlanta and Asheville, NC are two hours away. Helen, GA is about an 25 miles away with its many Christmas stores for shopping. Blairsville was recently selected as one of the Applachian Trail towns with the Applachian Trail close by. Pappy's, just down the road, has water tubing ... you can actually see the tubers go by as you sit and have your meal. You will fall in love with this area and its people ... Southern hospitality is a reality in Blairsville! Other Activities: White water rafting, many waterfalls, hiking trails, the beautiful Vogel State Park with its many trails, lake and water falls and the Appalachian Trail are all very close. Golf: There are two golf courses within 10 miles... Butternut Creek Golf Course is a favorite and you will find a brochure inside the cabin. Ski: Sky Valley, NC This is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes away. Fishing- this would be Southern Highroads Outfitters in Blairsville I had a guest who hired a guide for an awesome 4 hours fly fishing lesson and loved it. They are great people and my guest's wife texted me about all the fish he caught.
