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
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.
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.
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!
We had an amazing time at Jack and Barbara's! It was a wonderful time and the home had everything we needed. It was beautiful and tucked away on the side of the mountain in Sky Valley. We would definitely stay there again! Thank you Jack and Barbara for sharing your home!!
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.
Amazing place...Felt just like home from the moment we arrived...We truly loved our week staying at Jack and Barbara's! So much to do in the area and we truly loved the pool and hot tub!! Can't wait to go back❤❤❤
Barbara and Jack were so hospitable! They emailed the details about a week before our arrival which was so perfect. They were there at the cottage when we arrived to show us around. The cottage was equipped with everything that we would need and the Piggly Wiggly and Ingels weren't far away. The area is clean, beautiful and scenic. It couldn't have been more perfect! There is a helpful binder with all the passcodes and local brochures. The flea market in Rabun Gap was so fun to visit!
Cozy and comfortable mountain home with all the comfort of home. Very clean and complete with all you need. My wife and son and I had a great experience. Great communication with owners making sure our stay was going well. Would definitely stay here again if opportunity arises !
