When we walked into Don and Paula’s cabin, you could see that their place was made with love. My family and I were obsessed with the decor. Warm and cozy by sight, then it felt that way too.
The temperature went from cool to cold, but inside, we were toasty. We took advantage of the wood burning stove, and the central heat did not turn on when it was burning. Even though ice was forming outside, we could not feel the effects inside.
The two story home helped it not feel like we were going stir crazy when we decided to not venture out on the cold, windy days. Being upstairs, looking out in the distance with the wrap around porch, made it feel like we were in a tree house. But the driveway went up to top level, so unloading did not feel like a hassle as if you were in a tree house.
It was also conveniently close by to shops and the downtown area, yet it was 5-10mins away from everything up the mountain that it felt like you miles away.
This was just a perfect long weekend for our family to ring in the new year, and time away with those I love most to celebrate my birthday. We did not get to see snow, but if we were able to stay a few more days we would have. We still enjoyed the cold hiking and visiting Meeks Park.
Mr. Don was extremely hospitable and made sure that we were settled it. If ever we needed to contact either he or his wife, Paula, they were only a phone call away. Our family hopes to revisit their precious home again, and enjoy the beautiful area of Blairsville again.
Everything you need and more is available.I was most impressed by the call from Don making sure we had arrived and got in the cabin okay.
We had a great stay. Planned for another couple to go with us but couldn't come at the last. They missed a great time. A little early for the leaves but still had a good time.
Don and Paula's cabin fully lived up to our dreams. The accommodation was spotless and roomy and we had a very comfortable stay. It was just the two of us so plenty of room for our stay to view the 2017 total eclipse. Don & Paula were very helpful and friendly and they had provided plenty of information on local places to visit of which there are a number. We only visited a few due to our main purpose of eclipse watching. Suitable for all - couples, families you will all be assured a welcome in this wonderful place. We highly recommend.
The Williams and ourselves rented this cabin for a week. It was an amazing time of fellowship, bonding with our spouses and children. The cabin itself is very, very comfortable and well maintained. The owners were in the area during our stay. As such we were able to spend some quality time with this wonderful, friendly, helpful couple. They responded to our requests promptly. The cabin is located in an area that allows easy access to various activities for the entire family. We hiked to the top of Blood Mountain, plus many other great activities. Will definitely try to rent this cabin again for our next visit in the fall.
