Hiawassee Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Kick off your shoes and go Barefootin' in style! Barefoot Retreat Cabin is located just 10 miles from downtown Hiawassee and is surrounded by sheltering pines, lofty hardwoods and lush ferns. The split floorplan of this rustic, yet modern, interior offers privacy for couples wishing to share accommodations yet maintain their own space, provided by the arrangement of each of the two king bed suites being situated on opposing sides of the Living Room/Kitchen/Dining area. This floor plan is also wonderful for families, giving mom and dad a place to enjoy some quiet time alone. The cabin sleeps 4 comfortably with room for 2 more if you count the sleeper sofa in the living room. Ladies will also enjoy the convenience of magnifying mirrors and hair dryers in each bathroom.

Share a spectacular year-round mountain view from your rocker on the full-length deck, or snuggle by the fireplace and enjoy good times with family and friends.

Whether you're grilling out on the deck and dining out under the stars, or entertaining the group with a wonderful home-cooked meal prepared in the fully equipped island kitchen, you're sure to be prepared with everything you need. So come on up and enjoy some mountain luxury!

Want to bring extra family? Ask us about our 4BR/3.5BA property just across the road (VRBO #170282)!

Very cozy

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cabin! It was very clean and had just about everything we needed (minus food of course). The owner even had a book of all of the restaurant nearby with her personal reviews which was very helpful. The owner was very helpful and pleasant to rent from. She was very fast with her responses. Will definitely be renting this cabin again.

Barefoot retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had the best weekend and the home was absolutely perfect. We so appreciate all the effort the owner put into giving us the correct directions to the cabin! The cabin was beautiful and in a perfect location for a peaceful getaway weekend. They were also so accommodating with our two dogs, we loved being able to bring them along our adventures! Thank you for everything!

Beautiful cabin with great views!!

  • 5 of 5

Barefoot retreat was a beautiful cabin, everything was exactly as described, even better than described. Very clean & well kept! Marsha was great and worked with us through the rental phase on vrbo before we arrived. The area was great, lots of trails to explore & waterfalls to see. The views are amazing! Wish we could have stayed longer it was so nice. This is a great place for a family vacation or just a couples getaway!!! Definitely would stay here again!!!

A quiet refuge

  • 4 of 5

Barefoot Cabin is in the woods, well away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The two bedroom two bath set up is perfect for couples and friends to spend time together. The functional kitchen and comfortable great room separate the bed and baths. There's a front deck with a spectacular mountain view which we all enjoyed each morning while having our coffee. The back deck has a grill with a hot tub just to the side. We used the grill each night, but didn't take advantage of the hot tub. We also really appreciated having a washer and dryer in the cabin, so convenient to do a load of clothes. In all, we had a very comfortable stay. Our first inclination was to be a bit concerned that no cell service was available on site, but the house phone worked fine and the internet connection was more than adequate. The property owners, Jim and Marsha, were easy to work with and took great care to ensure all of us were comfortable with during our stay. I definitely recommend this property for anyone looking for some wooded seclusion and quiet time with all the comforts of home at hand. We had a great stay...

Beautiful view in a super clean cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Barefoot Retreat for a long weekend. This is our third time staying in a VRBO rental in north Georgia and the third time was a charm. The place is super clean and close to some great hiking. The views off the front porch were nothing short of beautiful. In the morning as the fog burned off the mountain ridges would come into view and at night they looked like purple mountain majesties. Hiawassee is a great little town close by where we shopped at Ingles. We did not have enough time do the wine tours although their were a couple close by and will try to hit them next time we visit Barefoot Retreat. I would be remiss if I did not mention the owners. They were outstanding to work with and helped make the trip very enjoyable. We are already planning our next trip to this gem in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
