About Barbara and Jack Anderson

We are retired from the Palm Beach County school system and ready for a new adventure, meeting you! Barbara still works with Mary Kay Cosmetics and both Jack and Barbara are involved with a Home Improvement ministry, helping families in their local area. Barbara is a retired special education teacher and Jack was in Energy Management and an Air force veteran.

We have 4 children, a son at the Pentagon, a daughter in real estate, a daughter, owner of a darling high end consignment shop and one in radiology.

We have named our cottage 'MiMi's Cottage' after Barbara's grandmother (and the grandchildren call Barbara MiMi).

We love meeting new people and sharing about this area.

Barbara and Jack Anderson purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Barbara and Jack Anderson chose Sky Valley

One of the most beautiful areas in the world... And we want to share! We have traveled with the elderly, children and other couples and have incorporated what we loved or missed when we traveled.

What makes this cottage unique

Our uniqueness begins with a themed bunk room, fun for adults and children alike! It continues with a king room filled with notes and books sharing this area's secrets.

We will try to add some finishing touches for you and your guests or family. If we know you are newly weds, have a pet (pet fee $50)need a special area for a project, bringing children, single, girls retreat, golf trip or bringing your parents, we will tailor the cottage to your unique needs and wishes.

We even have a pantry stocked and can grocery shop for you at a minimal cost.

We are close to so much yet you have extra parking and a secluded wooded half acre when you want to retreat.

I like booking a massage at Kingwood. They have a nice facility for that and included is a pool and hot tub. If you don't need the massage, you have available to you an indoor and outdoor hot tub, exercise room, outdoor pool for warmer weather and showers with the restrooms. Outdoor grills are located next to playgrounds and tennis courts. Our family favorites close by are: The zip line is right at the base of bald mountain road as well as snow tubing and ice skating. We love all ability hiking at Tallulah Falls and Rabun Bald mountain. There are many trails and a trail map at the cottage.

Sweet mountain cottage, lots of privacy and easy to access all that we wished to do!

  • 5 of 5

It was as described, no surprises, extremely comfortable and we loved it. Yes, the week was weather perfect, but that is not in our hands. I will certainly return and stay a longer period of time. Owners were such a delight to communicate with by phone and email.

Comfy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to MiMi's Cottage. Last summer my husband and I were able to spend 2 months. Our time away from home only allowed us to spend 5 nights last week and we wished we had been able to stay and enjoy the beautiful fall scenery for a longer period of time. One of our dear friends from Miami was able to join us and she had a delightful visit. Thank you so much, Jack and Barbara!

A charming cottage in a beautiful part of Georgia

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our month in the Georgia mountains. Barbara and Jack are genuinely nice people and they ensured that we had a pleasant stay. Daily trips to the pool and hot tub at the Sky Valley Resort coupled with road trips to see the many waterfalls and hiking trails were the highlights of our visit. August is the perfect time to visit. With sunshine and low humidity, it was delightful. We would highly recommend this home as it fit our needs perfectly.
