Amenities include:

You are initially greeted with a hand carved front entrance as you enter your retreat.

Large secluded screened porch with rockers, dining table and mountain sunset views. If you enjoy reading or just want to get away to mountain serenity & your special music, our quiet screened porch---comfortable rockers included---should be one of the most enjoyable features of our Cabin. Flat screen TV for enjoying Netflix, Hulu and a wide variety of other shows. The sitting room has a library of movies, books and board games. There is a Gas grill, complete with utensils and, of course, gas too. Makes grilling in the mountains just like home. While grilling, relax in the rocker with a beautiful mountain view and soak in the fresh air and pine laden-ed breezes.

The two Master suites each have a private open air deck accessible by sliding glass doors with bench seating to enjoy sunset views, star gazing and separate access to screen porch for dining and board games. Additionally, one of the Masters has private access to the bathroom and a large private sitting room. The Two Master suites are separated by a great room with 13 foot cedar lap siding wall (filling the air with a fresh cedar aroma) crowned with windows that let in the morning sun, a dining area, 1/2 bath with a dishwasher plus stacked washer and dryer, and a fully appointed Kitchen.

Bird feeders and area wildlife add to the experience.

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 North Georgia Mountains

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.

Perfect home away from home in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful 3 days in this perfect getaway cabin. Our goal was to find a quiet, comfortable place to enjoy mountain air and fall colors. The layout of the cabin worked very well for 4 adults. We found that all of our needs had been thoughtfully anticipated. We especially loved the large back porch - great for drinking coffee as the sun comes over the mountains.

Everything we wanted and more

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for a long weekend with a friend. Plenty of space to be together and apart. The decor was charming. Details such as extra thick towels, sharp knives, useful brochures, and ice already in the freezer were much appreciated. The screened deck porch was swept and clean, the cozy bed quilts were exactly the right weight, and great WiFi performance combined to make our visit comfortable and easy.

We would enjoy returning to the cabin any time of year and recommend it to our friends.

As Goldie Locks would say, "it was just right."

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and neat. It was comfortable and well-maintained. We were able to relax and unwind from our busy lives. We enjoyed the seclusion and being able to eat breakfast and dinner on the screeened in-porch. It was easy to locate and there is plenty of room to park. It was close to hiking trails and if you wanted to go into town for dinner it wasn't far. The listing description was accurate and the owners were great to work with. We enjoyed our time there and would definitely recommend this place others.

This was a lovely get-away retreat! The back screened porch quickly became our favorite spot! It felt like we were in a treehouse in the middle of a forest! Everything was clean and the space was very comfortable. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

A Step(p) Away from the Cares of the World

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a wonderful three day stay at the Stepp Away Mountain Laurel Cabin in Georgia. We could not have asked for a more inviting, comfortable location. The cabin is tucked away in its own little space on the mountain and it feels like there's no one else on earth. The quality of furnishings and comfort of bedding, along with the beauty of the decor makes one yearn to just "come home" and relax. We will return to visit again in the future. The owners have thought of everything one needs for the comforts of home. They know how special their place on the mountain is and are gracious enough to share it with others seeking the same.

Perfect Cabin for Quiet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful cabin is exactly as shown in the photos. It was clean, well-appointed and beautifully decorated. Our hosts, David and Leta, went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. It was the perfect place for two good friends to get away for a spiritual retreat. We each had our own space for privacy and individual study, and when we shared time in the great room, kitchen or on the screened porch, we found everything we needed to make us feel "at home." We enjoyed our time at the cabin, as well as getting to know our gracious hosts. We look forward to returning for another girls' get-away; next time we plan to get out more and enjoy the nearby waterfalls and the magnificent mountain views. Hopefully we can stay longer next time! We did not want to leave!
