Our beautiful mountain home located in North Georgia is just the place for you and your family/friends to have fun and relax! You'll enjoy the peacefulness of the surroundings as you sit in a rocking chair or on a porch swing on one of two large, covered decks that overlook the wooded mountain side. Or perhaps you'll just sit outside at the table to drink a cup of coffee while watching for deer, wild turkeys, or even an occasional black bear.
The house is spacious enough to accommodate a large crowd. Whether you use it for a family gathering, a 'Girls Weekend', or to reunite with your old college friends there is plenty of room! There is sleeping space for 12 and, as we've done in the past, you can always throw some sleeping bags on the floor for the little ones! The kitchen table seats 4 and the dining room table seats up to 12 (it's also a great place for games and puzzles!). There is a nice sized family room upstairs and a large playroom downstairs - both with cable TV. The family room, dining room, and kitchen have an open floor plan.
If you wish to get out, the Bent Tree Community has many things to offer: 18 hole championship golf, 2 pools (one for adults only and one for families), indoor and outdoor tennis courts, stables and horseback riding, hiking trails with beautiful waterfalls, and an onsite restaurant. The recreation area on the lake has a sandy beach, beach volleyball, a basketball court, a playground, a large grassy field, grills and picnic tables. All of this is within a couple of miles from the house.
Our home is located in Jasper, Georgia where there are many area interests. Restaurants and stores are only a 15 minute drive away. The Georgia Marble Festival takes place in Jasper the first full weekend in October. Ellijay, Georgia is a 30 minute drive north and is the host to the Georgia Apple Festival in mid-October. To the east you'll find Dawsonville, Georgia - home of the North Georgia Premium Outlets. There are also many area hiking trails, state parks, and historic sites.
We look forward to hearing from you to book your mountain get away! We know that you'll enjoy visiting our home as much as we do!
Hi, we're Robert and Anne Manarin. We live about an hour from Bent Tree with our two children and our Carolina Dog.
The Owner purchased this house in 2005
When we began looking for a vacation get-away, we wanted a place where there would be activities within the community to enjoy. At Bent Tree we can spend the day at the beach/lake, we can hike, we can go to the pool, we can go horseback riding, etc. all while staying in the community. If we decide to venture out there are many fun things to do just a short drive away.
We bought in Bent Tree 12 years ago because we wanted a place to create memories with our friends and family. One of the most appealing characteristics of our house when we bought it was the fact that we would have room for all of our guests under one roof. Whether we're playing games around the table, sitting on the porch looking over the mountain, or watching football in the family room, we can all stay together. We've had the pleasure of having extended family gatherings, high school and college 'mini' reunions, and even a Girl Scout retreat at our home!
In spite of all the rain, we had a great time being with our family! Thank you for letting us rent your house - it was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated.
We were pleased to find the home an accurate representation to the VRBO pages...clean, spacious, & well-equipped with all we needed for the week we were there. The beds were comfortable, kitchen well stocked with dinnerware, silverware, pots, appliances & basic cleaning supplies. The washer & dryer is on the main floor, right off the kitchen which made it very convenient to stay on top of laundry (& they supplied detergent, which is not common for rentals) & the eating areas provided seating for at least 15, which was wonderful for our large family. The location is convenient to shopping (15 minutes to Walmart & other groceries), the gated community is quiet & well kept, & the area is beautiful.
We enjoyed several outdoor adventures including daily walks on the trail below the home, sighting a large buck, several wild turkeys & many playful squirrels. We hiked to two nearby (30 min - 1hr) waterfalls: the Amicalola Falls (strenuous) in the state park & Helton Falls (easy, but desolate) in the National Forest. Both were beautiful! The Amicalola Falls State Park offers picnic areas, a playground, visitor center, the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail & camping. The Helton Falls is a bit of a drive, off the beaten path down a single lane gravel road crossing through two small creeks, but well worth the drive & uncertainty, as it is a natural beauty! It was late in the afternoon, so the temps dropped quick, as the area became shaded.
We made our annual trip to Blue Ridge and Mercier Orchards. They have the BEST apple butter & homemade apple cinnamon donuts! The grounds offer a large pond with walkways around it, on-site cafe, wine tasting, apple samples, large gift store & food market of canned jams/jellies/relishes & fresh foods. During our stay, we visited local historic sites in Dawsonville.
There are several nearby cities which offer quaint shops & eateries in the historic parts of their city, or if you are looking for more modern chain restaurants they have those as well. On a couple of rainy days, we relaxed at home playing games, reading, playing video games or watching TV (not a normal activity for our family). The home had a nice selection of toys for a range of ages, puzzles, & a game system for older kids.
We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and clear night skies from the decks. This is a home we will certainly consider again for future trips to the area.
THE HOUSE WAS CLEAN AND TIDY WITH A GREAT VIEW. THERE WAS PLENTY OF ROOM FOR MY SONS AND THEIR FAMILIES (I LIVE IN BENT TREE ONE MILE AWAY). THE ONLY DOWN SIDE IS THERE WAS NO WI FI AND THE DRIVEWAY HAS A DANGEROUS DROP-OFF ON THE RIGHT SIDE. IT SHOULD BE FILLED IN. BUT THE PRICE WAS RIGHT FOR THIS SIZE HOUSE.
This house was just perfect for our pre-thanksgiving get together. The home was clean with plenty of beds, space to play games in, and a big family table for thanksgiving! Bent Tree is a very cool mountain community with beautiful hiking trails and a lake with a beach, complete with a bocce ball court! We have absolutely no complaints and would love to stay here again in the future.
The place was perfect for a weekend retreat. Beautiful views and a wonderful place to relax
The property was beautiful. It was able to accommodate myself and my family for out weekend getaway. It was close to stores so it was easy to get last minute items but away from everything to be peaceful. We had an absolute wonderful time celebrating my mom's 50 th birthday. We plan on coming back again!!
We were so fortunate to find Bent Tree for an overnight college student leadership retreat. Sleeping accommodations and number of beds were perfect for our group. The large family room and dining table provided adequate space to plan for the new year. The porch swings were an added bonus and were perfect for conversation/community building. The kitchen was well-equipped for preparing meals. Everything was great...except we wished we could have stayed one more night! Thank you for your hospitality and flexibility with early check-in time!!!
