About Bill Saylors, Jeffrey Saylors

Our family has enjoyed this special gem for over 9 years. There is always something magical about this place. You feel closer to the stars at night, like you can reach out and grab one. The cool evenings are amazing as fireflies endlessly dance amongst the mountain landscape. During the day, the mountain views offer a burst of tranquility with Carters Lake touching the foot of the Appalachian's. We have made this place our home, our special place away from it all.

Bill Saylors, Jeffrey Saylors purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Bill Saylors, Jeffrey Saylors chose Ranger

The area is full of history. Since we like history, mountains and relaxing tranquility, we have found that our family has loved this place each and everyday. Its nestled amongst some of the most sublime scenery, but yet your a quick 20 min drive into town. Talking Rock Creek Resort has creature comforts throughout the mountain community that will keep curiosity yearning for more. You can't just come here one time and never return. It really has it all. Time to unwind and take in what nature has to offer, while you have all the comforts of Home Sweet Home.

What makes this cabin unique

Close to everything. But yet secluded in your own little piece of heaven.

Plenty to do within the Talking Rock Creek Resort, as well as Carters Lake across the way. We like that we're close to the Main Entrance (1/2 mile) so we can be on our way quickly when we go sightseeing or etc.

Great view and value for the money

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is older and needs some touch up, but it is clean and well decorated. The view really is as good as the picture. The gravel road needs to be scraped (I live on a dirt/gravel road so am used to it).

Overall, the cabin is a good value. If view is what you are looking for most, this one fits the bill.

I would not recommend this cabin in the winter if you need 3 bedrooms as the basement BR is heated with a space heater and there is no heat in the bathroom.

Great getaway location!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin with a lot of room to spread out and enjoy the breath taking view of the lake! Quiet surroundings and close enough to Ellijay and all of the fun things to do around that area. Will definitely stay here again. We came here from Florida during hurricane evacuation and the owners were extremely helpful with getting situated upon arrival late at night.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect and had everything we needed. The beds are comfortable. My daughter was married the week before and my wife and I looking for a quiet place to get away for a few days. Morning coffee on the rear porch was just what we needed to start the day. We visited a nearby orchard and winery to cap off the weekend. Can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to have you as guests in the Walela Cabin. We know how wonderful it is to sit back, relax and enjoy a warm cup of coffee in the fresh mountain air with the Mountains as your back drop. Don't forget about the Humming birds...they bring a sense of calm, mystery and intrique. We look forward to your return!

Our stay in this cabin was everything we hoped it would be. The furnishings are very comfortable and the views are amazing, with room for everyone. From the time we arrived up to our check-out the family that owns this property were very helpful and attentive, they made sure that if we needed anything they were accessible. We had a little hiccup with the a/c unit and they had the repair man out immediately. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your cabin.
