About the property

4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, sleeps 12 comfortably

Because the city is wearing you out. And you need a getaway. Because you need a quick escape. And a long hike. Because you want to see the stars. And the sparkle of sun on the lake.

14 acres to wander. A stocked fishing lake. Bring your bike and ride South Fulton’s Silken Sheets for miles and miles. Enjoy horseback riding? Visit Foxhall Farms. And when you want a touch of civilization, Serenbe is just across the way with great dining at the Blue Eyed Daisy, the Farmhouse or The Hil.

If you want to see where your food is coming from, visit the farmers at Serenbe Farms. There is also a wonderful spa, art galleries and shopping.

The gravel driveway is about a 4th of a mile long and it ends with us.

Outfitted in cabin luxury, come get away from it all in comfort and artful style. Each bedroom has nice sheets and pillows, plenty of quilts when it’s cold, and lovely views of the pastures around you. Bathrooms are lightly appointed with soaps, shampoos and the like.

The kitchen is fully outfitted. We’re dinner party-throwin’ types so you’ll find plenty of plates and service, cookware, and barware. There’s also a charcoal grill on the side patio. Perfect for summer BBQ’s.

You are welcome to fish in the lake. Catch and release the bass, please. Eat all the crappie you’d like.

There’s a couple of comfy couches for lounging, TV for watching and a front porch swing, for.. well.. swingin’. Be sure to have your coffee and/or cocktails on the front porch, weather permitting. It is THE best seat in the house.

Weekend Get Away

  • 3 of 5

Very eclectic.

Oven is temperamental and the front two burners on the stove top are not working.

House not evenly heated and the master bedroom was the coldest of all the rooms. Nice that a space heater was in the closet but unfortunately it did not work.

Great property to roam around on.

The Serenbe community across the road is great for hiking. The Hil restaurant was wonderful.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you had those issues! I wish you'd been able to let me know as soon as you got there. I'm always happy to try and set things right as soon as I can. We'll certainly take a look at the stove and get a new space heater for the master. It's not easy to heat a log cabin! ; )

Excellent Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a family getaway to the country and had a blast. You can't get any closer to Serenbe, and the family enjoyed the restaurants and spa. The children really enjoyed seeing the animals at Serenbe. The cabin was very spacious and held 8 of us comfortably. We loved the decor and the property is stunning. We hope to come back next year!

The cabin was very nice and clean. It was secluded and right on a beautiful pond. Beautiful views and relaxing peace and quiet. I'd highly recommend this cabin for a weekend getaway.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying at the Mosby's cabin. The house was clean, the location was perfectly tucked away, and the property was amazing! I only wish we could have spent more time there to really explore and enjoy the property. The only thing to note is the privacy level if you have a large group. The upstairs loft is of course open, but also, the upstairs queen room does not have a proper door, rather a curtain. This was not an issue though based on the layout of the house. We felt extremely at home and comfortable. The Mosby's were excellent about quickly responding to any questions I had prior to arrival. Will definitely return if possible!

Most unique and well appointed cabin I've seen

  • 5 of 5

The cabin easily accommodated my family of 10 during my daughter's wedding. Situated on a lake, the scenery is breathtaking and with Serenbe literally across the street there was plenty to do. We would love to come back again next year!

Beautiful, charming, peaceful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lindsey was easy to communicate with from the very first contact. We chose this beautiful property because of the location to Atlanta and the beautiful pool. The property does not disappoint. From the moment we pulled onto the property we were blown away by its charm and the well maintained land. The house it so charming and from the moment you step into the home you get an eclectic vibe that is not the norm for cabin living. Tim and Lindsey have amazing style and taste and we loved Tim's work so much we bought a few pieces to take home. The pool was a welcomed reprieve from the August heat and we were enjoying it every day. My husband and son went fishing and enjoyed them selves but it was a little tricky because there was no dock so there lines kept getting stuck but they do have canoes and kayaks to enjoy the beautiful and peaceful lake. We walked the property every morning exploring the property with the boys and we all just loved finding new things every morning to look at. We ran into couple of hitches along the way from some pretty bad storms that came throught but Lindsey was quick to respond and acted quickly to fix everything. We will most definetly be back and would recommend this property to anyone looking to get away and relax!

Extraordinarily awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 12 days at this beautiful cabin while we were participating in a horse competition at Chatt was perfect. Quite, peaceful, beautiful, extraordinary! The art work is amazing! We made so many wonderful memories, we can't wait to come back next year. It truly felt like home away from home!
