We love the all pine interior, fire place, porch surrounded by trees that feels like you're in a treehouse-and we also love having all the comforts of the city: Wii, Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime, Roku with SlingTV, Chromecast, WiFi, & 3 smart TVs - special rates for 5 nights or more.
The Dogwood Cabin is located on 33 acres of rolling hills, creeks and lakes nestled in the pristine North Georgia Mountains. The all pine interior and wood burning fireplace greet you when you open the door. 24 hr on-site support + hi-tech amenities.
Enjoy fall leaves or winter snow in a private cabin that is a little bit country...and a whole lot of Ikea. Modern/Rustic decor with all "mod cons" (3 smart, flat screen LED TVs in all rooms, washer/dryer, dishwasher, indoor Jacuzzi Tub in master bathroom, WiFi, Wii, Chromecast, HBO, Roku and fully equipped kitchen). Fresh linens and towels provided in this two bathroom that sleeps 6 (1 king size bed in master bedroom, a full-sized bed in the sleeping loft, a queen size sofa bed in the living room, and a single sofa bed in the loft). Our cabin is both kid friendly (our son loves the hammock, Wii, DVDs, toys, etc.) and completely romantic (we love the Jacuzzi tub, quiet porch views, fireplace, and how we are set away from all other cabins for privacy). In truth, our son loves the Jacuzzi, too. Enjoy coffee, full meals or a nap on the wide back porch that has a sleeping hammock, gas grill (no charcoal mess), and rocking chairs. Trout fishing (2 fishing poles provided), beautiful Vogel State Park & Lake Windfield Scott, and horseback riding nearby. The cabin is 20 minutes from the start of the Appalachian Trail, and 15 minutes from Brasstown Bald, Georgia’s highest mountain. We stay in the cabin for part of summer and live full-time in Miami. Our family lives in Blairsville year-round, so we are familiar with the area and have lots of suggestions for things to do and places to go if needed. Remember, we have on-site, 24-hour help from someone who will meet you at the cabin and is able to guide you to local sights when needed (or get you more firewood). We are also a text or email away for special requests or assistance. We travel internationally a lot (family in South America and Germany); we understand the unique needs of travelers that may arise.
Special rates for anyone who rents for extended stays. Let's talk.
The cabin has a fireplace (free firewood provided during the winter months), full kitchen, indoor Jacuzzi tub, 2 full bathrooms, electric AC/heat, fully-loaded kitchen, 3 smart LCD TVs with HBO, Chromecast, a Roku, and a Wii, and a gas grill with gas provided. There's Netflix, WiFi, and free nationwide land-line. (The land-line is important, as the remote location can interfere with cellphone reception.) On-site trails and creeks.
Interaction is as often as necessary. We are available via text, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), or cell phone and we have a property manager who lives 40 yards away in another cabin. If you want support or have questions, we are available.
Some of our favorite things to do, details of which you will find in our guest book: Vogel State Park, Lake Windfield Scott State Park,
Tubing in Helen, The Christmas Tree farm down the road, Breakfast at The Griddle, Running at Meeks Park, working out with a weekly pass at Union General Wellness Center and fishing in some of the area creeks
We have two fishing poles available for use for our guests, and we also have a kayak (life vest, oar) available for your use if interested.
You will have full access to the entire cabin, plus all amenities, including a kayak located under the porch and fishing rods.
Interaction with guests
We are available via call or text as needed. But we have an on site property manager who can handle all smaller issues or questions.
Other things to note
Because of the dense tree canopy, the only cable TV available is via the SlingTV app on the Roku on the main TV in the living room. Once you select the proper HDMI input on the TV remote to activate the Roku, your Roku remote takes over and SlingTV (HBO, TBS, CNN, Disney, TNT, IFC, etc.) takes over.
There is a 7% sales tax and 5% hotel tax that is due on arrival for all stays. This keeps us legal and friendly with our community. Pets are allowed, but incur an additional $50 cleaning fee. We would also appreciate it if you did not smoke inside the cabin.
