The property is amazing and I could not have asked for anything better.

  • 5 of 5

I came up to the property with the idea to get away from the busy life of the Atlanta area and relax. It was all I hoped for and more. The owner (Rick) stopped by and fixed a couple of things on our first day there and he is very nice and accommodating. Our whole experience was great and I would highly recommend this property to anyone that wants to relax away from the hustle and bustle for awhile. Thanks Rick.

Absolutely Unbeatable Vacation Experience.

  • 5 of 5

For several years we have been coming to the Folk School once or twice a year. We first found this place by looking at internet listings near the school and have come back over and over. We have stayed in this house several times because the house and the owners are so good. It is always immaculate, it is well furnished and equipped and both the house and the setting are absolutely wonderful. We found the owners to be attentive, responsive and just simply wonderful people, who are now our good friends. A prospective renter can come here in full confidence of a truly wonderful experience. We especially enjoy sitting on the front porch watching deer, turkey, rabbits and enjoying the smells and feel of a quiet mountain valley with a babbling brook. It is situated on a quiet, very lightly traveled road and the natural peacefulness of the place is palpable. For people like us, city dwellers, who are at heart country, this is a much needed respite and a dose of nature's therapy. We look forward to every visit and have never been disappointed.

comfortable country home

  • 5 of 5

We were in the area on business mostly, but wanted someplace to stay that was close to town and peaceful to relax in the evening. This country home fits the bill. It is clean, well organized and everything you need to relax is right there. We enjoyed watching the turkeys and deer in the meadow across the way while having our morning coffee on the porch. We appreciated being allowed to bring our dog and the home is very pet friendly too. All in all it felt very much like home and we would certainly book this hpme again.

Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this cozy mountain home. It was in a beautiful area conveniently located near Murphy and North Georgia. The home had everything that we needed with a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and great rocking chairs on the porch. Good internet if needed. We stayed for a week while attending classes at the nearby Campbell Folk School. We will definitely be back!
