Relaxation! Enjoy summer breezes and mountain views from the base of Glassy Mountain. Nap to the sound of the creek from the sleeping porch while sipping local wines. Rustic beauty with modern touches all within a stones throw of two local wineries.
This special little cabin can be found off a short dirt road nestled at the base of Glassy Mountain in Tiger -- which is 10 minutes from Clayton, Georgia. Perfect for couples, a small family, or individuals looking to get away from the city and take it down a notch. and relax. Our little cottage is nestled in a tiny meadow surrounded by forest at the base of Glassy Mountain . Just 30 miles south of the North Carolina border, this lovely property backs up to 10,000 acres of Chattahoochee National Forest and is the perfect base camp for both adventure and relaxation -- even in the same day. After a day of activity you can take in the sunset and sweeping views of the surrounding mountains from the expansive front porch with a glass of wine in hand. Most activities are within 20 minutes of the cabin. Enjoy kayaking and whitewater rafting on the world famous Chattooga River, mountain biking, golf, or boating on Lake Burton and Lake Rabun. If fly-fishing is your thing, enjoy world class fly-fishing on any number of crystal clear streams in the Chattooga watershed all the way up to Highlands or Cashiers North Carolina. Be sure to visit historic downtown Clayton for an afternoon of antiquing and a nice glass of wine at Fortify or The White Birch Inn -- Clayton's two best fine dining options. For a more laid back atmosphere try The Universal Joint for beers and live music.
Guests will have access to the entire property except for the barn. We have super-fast WIFI so you can stay connected. We want all our guests to have WIFI access however, data is limited so please don't use bandwidth hogging applications like streaming (TV, Netflix, etc). Besides, you are in the mountains so unplug, step outside, listen to the wind in the pines, and enjoy nature. The graphics are amazing!
Interaction with guests
We will likely be in Atlanta while our guests are staying here
Other things to note
Although this cottage can accommodate 2-4 people comfortably it is quite small -- 640 square feet so it is ideal for singles, couples or small families. We spend much of our time outside or on the expansive front porch. The space has one bedroom, a loft upstairs, and a futon in the living room that folds out to sleep two. A blow up mattress is available in the loft for an additional two guests if needed.
Our property is dog-friendly, though our dogs stay outside day and night. If you bring your dogs in, please be sure they are not allowed on the furniture. Also, please wipe any dirty paws before coming in the house.
We have free WIFI but data is limited so please do not engage in streaming or other bandwidth hogging applications (streaming TV, Netflix, etc).
Hi, we are Jen and Jiri (pronounced like Yuri). We live in Atlanta but we love to escape the city and come to our refuge nestled in the mountains of North Georgia. Jen is an introverted, bookish PhD candidate/actor. Always looking for a quiet place to read, write, and hopefully drop into a yoga class now and then. Jiri's passion is mountain biking or kayaking the whitewater of Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee every weekend -- so Tiger makes a great base of operations. Our idea of a perfect weekend is to head up to the cabin Friday after work and catch the sunset with a glass of wine. Then Jiri will go kayaking Saturday with friends while Jen catches up on reading and relaxing. Then we spend our Sunday relaxing and gardening or going for a hike with our dogs and maybe a salad fresh from the garden.
We love to travel -- mainly for the food and cultural out of body experiences. We have been to much of Central America, South America, most of Europe, the Mediterranean, and India. Jiri has family in the Czech Republic so we have been there a bunch. Our favorite destination was India -- we have been three times now and would go again in a heartbeat. On our last trip we picked up our newborn twins, Mack and Maansi, born through surrogacy. Such an intense and truly miraculous experience! We would also love to go to Asia -- neither of us have been....yet -- but it is next on our list when the twins are old enough to travel!
Our philosophy of travel is to become immersed in the culture and simply eat, drink, and just be. To enjoy the rich pageant of life passing by from a bar or cafe. Our philosophy when it comes to hosting travelers is very much the same: we want to provide you with more than a place to stay -- we want you to have a unique experience and hopefully experience some of the things that we truly enjoy about our property. We hope you love it as much as we do.
