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.
Update- we just installed a dishwasher on July 7th, 2015 for our guests, of almost 100 reviews only one had mentioned not having this but....
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.
'Our grandson made this tour for us'
Esther and I have been married over 25 years and we love people as each person is unique. Have you ever sat in the Atlanta airport and watch people as they walk by, observe their manners, and gestures.
We have met the nicest people who have become our guests and many have provided insight into how we can better accommodate future guests which is what this is about. Many are just wanting to 'pay the mortgage', this is not an issue with us as we really desire to please our guests.
Esther or Carl purchased this cabin in 2011
It was a foreclosure and when we walked through the door on Valentines Day 2011 and pulled back the drapes and saw the view, it was 'love at first sight'.
We then started to mold the cabin to our liking as Esther started to pick out the color of paint and obtain furniture from the local shops.
Choestoe Sanctuary is close to all the natural points of interest and provides a peaceful haven to rest and reflect. I am sure tthe reviews highlight this fact. Everything was added as though we were going to live here all the time as many places provide cheap items, we have not. Each time we vacation there, we add sometime new.
What a GREAT cabin! We were here for a week, the cabin was clean, comfortable, and full of amenities. The owners go the extra mile to be sure your stay is as enjoyable as it can be providing maps, brochures,and personal tips.The location is idea for any of the activities in the area: hiking, waterfalls, state parks, shopping, fishing, and driving around viewing the scenery.
The cabin was great, everything you could want and need. Beds were comfortable. I would stay again!
Spent a weekend at Choestoe Sanctuary and absolutely loved it. Everything you could possibly need is at the cabin and Carl is a great help. You can tell how much he enjoys making sure others enjoy their time at their cabin. I could have just sat for hours in the swing looking over the most picturesque scene and actually did. So peaceful. Very easy to find. Close to Brassyown Baldwin lookout and to Jim's Smokin' Que (Carl's recommendation and oh so good!) Overall a wonderful experience. I only wish I could have stayed longer but next time!
What a beautiful cabin and awesome place to visit. This cabin is very comfortable and has everything you might need. The area is gorgeous and there is plenty to do! Look forward to going back.
Choestoe Sanctuary was the most comfortable cabin I've stayed in North Georgia and I visit the mountains often. It is 11 miles from Blairsville, 4 miles to Vogel State Park, 11 miles to Lake Windfield Scott and 17 miles from Cooper Creek. We had great meals in Blairsville and caught our Trout limit each day we were there. There's two decks; one off the living room and one off the master bedroom that provide outstanding views. There's WiFi, Dish Network and even have a Ruku box attached and we really enjoyed cooking hot dogs over the open fire in the back yard.
Carl and Esther are great host and I'm looking forward to my next stay in June.
This cabin is great for a small family or couple who would like a quiet location in the middle of all the North Georgia Mountains has to offer. The cabin is exactly as advertised, the owners were incredible to work with, and the location is really convenient to all you would need. Check out Trackrock Stables and Lasso the Moon alpaca farm for some earthy fun.
We contacted Esther and Carl regarding the Choestoe Sanctuary at last minute, and found out it was available. It is a beautiful place, and well maintained by Esther and Carl. It's not my first time staying here, it's my second..and I will definitely be coming back in the fall! The price is GREAT and well worth it! Thank you Esther and Carl!!

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 two 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 hour 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.
