Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms 1.5 bath & Guesthouse with 1 king bed + full bath - extra rental fee

'Cottontail Cottage in the Woods.' Private, Charming 2-bedroom cabin with an extra Guesthouse; in the woods, with deer in your front yard and so enchanting that you will be looking for Goldie Locks and the Three Bears!

Quiet, private and secluded in the forest of the beautiful North Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains. Only 3, mountain miles, from town, shopping and restaurants...but a million miles from the hustle and bustle of crowded city life.

All wood interiors. Newly furnished. Fully stocked with everything you could possibly need for that fun weekend getaway, a romantic honeymoon or family vacation. While-a-way a lazy afternoon in a rocking chair on the screened porch, cook out on the large deck or go for a hike in the woods. Please don't feed the bears!

Guest Comments: We don’t want to leave! It’s been a wonderful little getaway! Cottontail Cottage is first class; it’s the first cabin that we’ve stayed in that wasn’t furnished with used stuff and hand-me-downs! Warm ambiance, great view and lovely accommodations. So glad we found you and can’t wait to return. Thank you, Ann, Barb and Sherri, Orlando, FL

Oh, what a wonderful week we spent here at Cottontail Cottage! We immediately felt at home. The fresh air, the natural sounds and the friendly people. That’s just like the countryside in Germany, where we grew up. On the days the sun was shining we went out for long hikes. We especially liked the Chatooga River. The Sandy Ford Area with Dick’s Creek Falls was our favorite. We didn’t care about the rainy days as long as we knew that we could come back home, take a hot shower, and cook a wonderful dinner. There is still a lot left we have to explore. Hopefully we will have the pleasure to return to Cottontail Cottage. Thorsten, Sandra & Sophia, Key

More Guest Comments: As fate would have it, we have had a memorable weekend at Cottontail Cottage. We experienced the incredible scenery, really amazing! It was also a treat to sit on the front porch and do nothing! Thank you for being so kind and we will also treasure our time here at your “little piece of heaven.” Barry and Joanna, Myakka City FL. What an amazing cottage-the pictures don’t do it justice!!! We found comfort, peace….and a calm quiet we haven’t had in a long time. You guys thought of everything-we felt pampered & we can’t thank you enough. We’ll definitely be back & I’m sure we’ll be sending others to enjoy the same experience we had! Thanks again! Cheryl & Chris, Brian & Tricia, SC

Gorgeous! The maples are just beautiful this time of year and ending the day with a roaring fire is perfection. We love the antique lanterns and all the extra touches- it’s obvious how much care and thought went into this place. What a wonderful retreat – Thank you! Ann & Marc, Atlanta, GA

and still more Guest Comments: Thank you very much for letting us use “your little cabin” to help us celebrate our 39th anniversary! We were very much impressed with your hospitality & your concern to make sure we had everything we needed. We will be coming back & will recommend your cabins to others. Hope to see you soon! Cecil & Barbara, GA

Sure glad we found you! The cottage is beautiful & I have never seen any place so clean – neat and well decorated. You are delightful landlords and we really enjoyed our stay. Mary & Dick, FL

Thanks so much for a lovely relaxing stay. We especially enjoyed the calm of a grilled dinner on the porch after our whitewater rafting trip. We’ll definitely be back – maybe next time with the kids! Perry & Cindy, Lexington, SC

About Peter or Debbie

We came to the North Georgia Mountains for a visit and fell in love with the majestic beauty of these Blue Ridge Mountains! We moved here because of the people! The good folks here are so friendly, warm and caring. We have been renting Cottontail Cottage in the Woods for more than 11 years and based on customer comments and reviews....we have maintained a consistent 5-star excellent rating with Home Away and VRBO. We treat everyone who stays at our cabin as if they are guests in our own home. We have met truly wonderful guests and lucky for us, a few have moved here and we have become very close friends! Just being in our Mountains makes you feel like you've found a little piece of heaven! Read on to see what our guests have written about their stay at Cottontail Cottage and their own "little pieces of heaven" which they have discovered.....

Why Peter or Debbie chose North Georgia Mountains

Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful cabin. We have loved our stay & hope that we can take advantage of coming & staying in the future. This place has a great energy that relaxes and comforts all that stay. We did not get to enjoy all the sights, but there really was no need. We found that this place offered all the beauty, peace & tranquility that one could hope to find. This has been the perfect cabin escape & we leave recharged & refreshed. Thank you, Michael & Kellie, SC

Hospitality at its BEST! Extraordinary service! Fantastic Owners!

  • 5 of 5

Peter and Debbie took every effort to deliver exceptional touches and had everything you possibly could want. They were so nice and certainly went the extra mile to deliver service. The cabin was close to town but had the trees surrounding the cabin which delivered the most perfect temperatures. The Guest House came in real handy for additional relatives who loved their quiet time. I will book again for sure.

Cottontail Cottage is so cozy and peaceful. My husband and I decided on a last minute weekend getaway and lucky for us this cabin was available. Peter was a wonderful host (we didn't get to meet Debbie but I am sure she is just as wonderful) showing us everything we needed to know about the cabin and where everything was. Peter and Debbie have put together a wonderful binder that has everything you could think to ask about the surrounding area from restaurant information to family activities to suggested day trips! It was entertaining just reading it! This cabin by far exceeds any other place we have rented. When Peter says all you need to bring is your PJ's and that they have everything else covered, he means it! My husband and I are already picking out dates to reserve this cabin again!

Gorgeous and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This place was beautiful! I took my wife, daughter, mom and grandson! Plenty of space. They had a planner to help us explore the surrounding areas which made it easy for us to find activities to do. We enjoyed sitting on the porch around the fire pit roasting marshmallows and cooking on the grill! We had a great vacation and would highly recommend this rental

Very relaxing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Cottontail Cottage and we just can not say enough about how wonderful the cabin is, and how the owners, Peter and Debbie, have provided for every possible need while there. We stayed here last fall and loved it, and decided to come back this spring to share the area with our friends. It is conveniently located near Clayton and has some amazing places to eat nearby. The deck is so wonderful to come home to and spend a relaxing evening, watching the sunset over the mountains. We will definitely be coming back to stay here again and again!
