About Lisa and Sean Barr

This family home is special to Sean and Lisa Barr. Sean's father built the home in 2003 and the couple were married in the Chapel in Sky Valley in 2006. After the passing of Sean's parents, Sean and Lisa have kept this home in the family and have continued to update it and make it their own. We enjoy our quick weekend getaways with family and friends and often host family dinners up to 30 guests. Perfect location to maximize holidays! We live close by near Atlanta so it is the perfect place to relax and decompress from the hectic work in the city.

Lisa and Sean Barr purchased this house in 2003

Why Lisa and Sean Barr chose Sky Valley

Come enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains and with a short drive you have several choices in N.C. either in Highlands or a quick drive to the Great Smoky Mountains. Our family spent many summers and holiday's in the mountains with our families and are happy to share our home and experiences with others.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the double decks and separate living spaces. For large families or with children each group has their own place to relax. Enjoy the outdoor living area and on a cool night use the fire pit or fireplace for that cozy feel.

We also have provided 3 additional blow up mattresses so large parties especially children can use in the secondary living area for a great slumber party environment for family vacations.

Breath taking views!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you walk into this house, you are greeted with the VIEWS, The home was immaculate, welcoming and equipped with everything you could need. We had a wonderful time, enjoyed eating on the back porch and awaking to the gorgeous mountain views from every room. We can't wait to our return visit! Highly recommend this beautiful home! You can even bring your fur babies (we have 2 Teacup Yorkies-3 lbs each) and not have to worry about them while you are on vacation, (Dixie and Daisy are considered part of our family). What a blessing to have them with us!

Wonderful week-end get away!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a nice home - 4 large bedrooms; 4 large bathrooms; 2 living areas; 2 nice size decks. Obviously at this time of year, the deck furniture was covered in pollen, but that was an easy clean and one I have to do at home! Otherwise, the house was very clean and well furnished! It would be a great get-away for families with grown children, like ours or for couples! Highly, highly recommend this home away from home.

GREAT Christmas experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay, especially during the holidays with all my family! The house was plenty big enough for all 7 of us including our 3 year-old granddaughter and a dog. Thanks for allowing us to bring our non-shedding "older" dog, Lisa! And thanks so much for attending to some of the immediate needs (like replacing light bulbs) so quickly.

The house was clean and well equipped with bedding, kitchenware, soap, towels, etc. I planned on doing quite a lot of holiday cooking (from cookies to turkey), and wasn't sure how "equipped" the kitchen would be, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Lots of dishes bowls, pots & pans. And although we didn't have snow, we did use the fireplace everyday (thanks for all the firewood too!!!!)

The house was decorated for Christmas just perfectly and it really took that added stress off my shoulders. We even used the firepit a few times (wrapped up snuggly in your cozy blankets) and marveled over the thousands of stars in the heavens. I wish I could post a photo of the living area here--it was all very cozy and beautiful.

Thanks so much for offering your house to us. I'd love to use it again in the summer!

Perfect for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

I have never been to Sky Valley. Not only did the location not disappoint but the home was just perfect for us. Great layout and a quiet wonderful neighborhood. 2 levels that allowed the older folks to be on the main floor and our adult children and dogs on the bottom floor. Rooms and bathrooms we large and very accommodating. Center living area was big enough for all of us to gather and enjoy family time. And dining table big enough for the entire family to gather and play games. Porch was large for our group and the fireplace was perfect for cool evenings. Also close to Highlands. We would highly recommend this home.

Fantastic home with a fantastic view.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We loved the house it had everything we needed. We watched the sun come up over the mountain each morning as we were having our breakfast. Did not want to go home at the end of our stay.

Gorgeous- pictures do not do it justice! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing view! Interior was very nice with comfortable beds. Wood burning fireplace upstairs and electric one down stairs - the home was clean and kitchen had all we could need - We could have lived on the porch super comfy with 2 grills and a firetable- tvs everywhere so no one forced to watch football haha lots of books and games as well. There is a great town nearby (Highlands GA) with tons of shops and cafes- also nearby in Tiger GA lots of restaurants, grocery stores and a super Walmart - there was also a souvenir shop called goats on the roof that I highly recommend for the kids and lots of activities nearby. This is a great neighborhood with friendly residents and visitors. We would most definitely love to return to this home in the future! Owners were incredibly gracious during our stay as well!
