About David & Leta Reeves

This was our cabin that has been our "just a Stepp away" from Atlanta for many years where we reunited with nature as a respite from our challenging jobs. We love this area so much that we decided to purchase a home in this wonderful community after looking at many others. Our new home gave us the opportunity to share a piece of our heaven with others by sharing our cabin.

David & Leta Reeves purchased this cabin in 1988

Why David & Leta Reeves chose Hiawassee

Single Story "no stairs" quaint cabin in a small quiet community with all the amenities of the city-great diverse restaurants, events, and shows, lots of shopping, nice people, with lovely mountain and lake views everywhere you go.

What makes this cabin unique

It features a single story with no stairs. It is so very quiet which makes it super relaxing. Close enough to Hiawassee, Lake Chatuge, and restaurants with no city lights to disturb the view of the stars, and no busy activity to scare the deer and birds away.

Stepp away was great!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, perfect for our family get-a-way! Loved the décor and the view from the decks! Felt like we were in a world of our own. First time to stay in the area, so we did a lot of exploring. Some tv and lots of card games in the evening. Will definitely recommend!

The cabin was beautifully clean and well maintained. A home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

I took my Mum to the mountains on a last minute trip. We had originally planned to go to Florida but Hurricane Irma had other ideas. When we arrived at the cabin, we were very happy to find such a cozy and welcoming place. Everything was clean and well taken care of and David and Leta made sure that we had everything that we needed. It is well located for mountain drives or visiting other towns/cities in the GA/NC/SC area. Would most definitely go back and stay here and definitely recommend to others. Loved it!
