“Home in the Mountain Woods”
Reviewed 17 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Three of my best and dearest life-long friends from childhood gathered at this cabin for our yearly reunion trip. From the moment we turned into the drive, marked by an adorable wood carved bear, we were just enchanted. The cabin was smartly decorated, cozy and well stocked. The loft held three double beds where we all slept like a days gone by slumber party. The two porches were delightful, but we spent most of our time on the back porch where a water fall tumbled its way into a small pond. The owner had it on a timer, with lighting, so we could enjoy it into the dark hours. And in the fire pit next to it, we built a toasty fire each night and sat on the portch enjoying the woods sounds and smells and good S'mores and giggles and conversation. Charlie, the owner, was prompt in responding to all of our questions in booking and in staying and was so very helpful. We are all sad to leave this home in the woods. Loved it. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is yearning for a get away to nature and peace. And a gem of a place to gather with friends or family.

“Very nice cabin”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We (2adults + 2kids) spent three days during the first weekend of October. The cabin is very comfortable and nice for spending quality family time. The owner has gone out of his way to make his guests' stay enjoyable. Nice sitting area, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, perfect porches -- the perfect recipe for a super getaway/vacation.

“Amazing getaway in North Georgia”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Big Bear is amazing. We booked the downstairs (FOX?) room which meant that in the evening we could relax, play pool and have a larger space. All of the room are fantastic. Super comfy beds, nice towels etc. But, honestly, you can get that anywhere. The VIEW (of 3 states and nothing but hills and trees) is truly special. True vistas of wilderness and the Cherokee summer mountain The house itself is worth a visit. Amazingly gorgeous WALNUT floors. wow. And, the hosts are also wonderful - warm, welcoming, and very happy to help you have as great of a visit as you can! Hiking maps, other recs that were all spot on. We will be back. My trip was with my teenage daughter for a quick getaway before school started. It was perfect. A warning -- the gravel driveway is steep and through the woods.My subaru was also happy!

“A Wonderful in a Great Setting”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

My wife and I have been traveling to the Blue Ridge area for several years and this was the first time we stayed in a cabin and it will not be the last! The Blue Ridge area is so beautiful in the fall and the experience of staying in Charlie's cabin made it so much better. The cabin fits perfectly in the wooded setting and is extremely comfortable and pleasant inside. To make things that much better the owner, Charlie was ever so gracious throughout from the beginning to the end of our stay. My wife & I would not hesitate to reccomend this property and the Blue Ridge area to anyone. My only regret is that too many people know about Charlie's cabin and it will be hard to book in the future!

Jim, thanks for such a great review, as you know this is our private cabin and Judy my wife loves decorating, and this has been her delight to do it her way. I decided that we enjoyed the cabin so much that we just had to share it with good people. We now know you are good people. Please come back anytime you can.

“It was a beautiful cozy cabin with all you need.”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We enjoyed our stay very much. It was very easy to find and we loved the great homey feel of the cabin. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was easy to find. A very nice place to stay for a weekend or more.
