About the property

4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, sleeps 10

THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE CABIN!!! Perched high on a hillside, with endless mountaintop views, you’ll wonder if you’ve climbed a stairway to Heaven or has Heaven come down to meet you. Perhaps the answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind. Located just 10 minutes from town, the lavishly appointed, cedar sided, lodge style home is convenient to shopping, dining, churches, medical facilities and entertainment, but if it’s privacy you seek, you’ll be on your own like a rolling stone.

It’s the perfect place to experience cool autumn nights, crisp sunny days and all the splendor of fall colors. You’ll enjoy brisk evenings out on the covered porch, sipping a warm beverage, snuggled up in comfy rockers by the huge outdoor wood-burning fireplace, where you’ll be making precious memories to last a lifetime. It’s hurricane season in the south anyway, so don’t be a sad-eyed lady of the lowlands, come on up and let us give you shelter from the storm.

A Family Friendly Floor Plan!: This luxury 4 bedroom, 2½ bath home comfortably sleeps up to 10 with a King sized master suite on the main level as well as a smaller bedroom with a twin bed and full bath. The great room has cathedral ceilings with windows all around to enjoy the view and an inviting seating area centered around a massive stone gas log fireplace, flanked by a 42” flat screen HD/TV. The dining area with antique farm table seats eight and the enviable, fully equipped kitchen is offset by a large stone island which seats another 2 or 3 guests. Upstairs, there’s an open loft area with game table, seating and plenty of games, perfect for rainy day people of all ages. Down the hall is another Queen sized bedroom, full bath and a huge “Bunk room” with two traditional bunk beds and a Queen sized bed as well. This bedroom sleeps up to 6 comfortably.

Kick Back & Relax or Get Out & Have Some Fun!: Professionally decorated and embellished throughout with tasteful rustic antiques, folk art, furnishings and memorabilia, you’ll find the home lacking nothing in comfort and convenience. All too soon, however, you’ll have to hit that endless highway and be on the road again, but don’t think twice; it’s alright – we’ll be here for you when you return, so never say goodbye.

Just 10 minutes from pristine Lake Chatuge, it's just a short drive to either of 3 local marinas where you can rent boats, canoes, kayaks, Pontoons or jet skis for a day of fun on the water. Families with small children will love the little white sandy beach area with playground, tennis courts, boat launch and picnic area. And of course, there's the Georgia Mountain Fall Festival at the fairgrounds, located just minutes from town and your cabin. Check out their website to see which of your favorite performers will be appearing in concert while you're here as well.

Places To Go - Things To See & Lots To Do!: Within a relatively short driving distance you'll find all kinds of activities and attractions with something for everyone. There are hiking trails and at least 5 waterfalls that are well worth going out of your way to see. There's Horseback Riding at the new Brasstown Stables, Fishing, White Water Rafting, 'Grubbing for Gems' & Panning for Gold in nearby Dahlonega, and if you have little ones, be sure to visit the Birthplace of the Cabbage Patch Dolls, just outside of Cleveland. Of course you wouldn't want to miss a visit to the Alpine village of Helen, just 25 minutes away, where 'Octoberfest' will be in full swing this time of year. There are street performers, dancing, fun and activities for the whole family, along with an interesting array of little shops and great restaurants. Go tubing on the river that goes right through the heart of town or take a ride in one of the horse drawn carriages for a truly unique tour of the village.

Beautiful Cabin for Families

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for two families - four adults and four kids. We fit very comfortably in the house! The kitchen is beautiful and functional (fully stocked with cooking items and dishes/utensils/cups), the half-bathroom off the main living room area was helpful with all the kids, and the multiple places to sit gave us a number of spots to converse/watch tv/hang out. The outside fireplace was so cozy with the rocking chairs, and we loved the big kitchen table! The driveway up to the cabin is very steep but manageable with our small-SUV and minivan. The location is convenient, with an Ingles is within 10 minutes of the cabin and the city of Helen is about 30 minutes away. The city of Hiawassee also had a really fun playground for the kids and a few neat little shops to visit - and if it had been in the summer, it'd be easy to visit the lake for swimming. We highly recommend this cabin and hope to be back someday!

Beautiful, Serene, Secluded Property - Sitting on top of the world!

  • 5 of 5

We visited "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" in May for a girls weekend getaway. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It was spacious with enough rooms and bed to accommodate us all, AMAZING views, and a huge kitchen. The owners were wonderful to work with and we felt right at home in this cabin. One of our favorite moments was sitting in the big rocking chairs in the evening talking into the wee hours of the morning. Can't say enough good things about this place. My husband and I will definitely be making a trip there together in the future.

Best Cabin Ever...

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was beyond what we had hoped for--it is mountain luxury at every turn! To say that it is esthetically pleasing is an understatement. The inside space is full of designer touches--from the soaring stone fireplace to the copper sinks and casement windows. And the outside porch? It's not to be outdone, it rivals the inside space with the outdoor fireplace of your dreams. Knockin On Heaven's Door lives up to its name. The furnishings are a mix of old and new--with so many beautiful pieces of furniture and artwork to enjoy--add that to the mountain views seen from the windows and porches and you have found your Shangri-la. This cabin has everything you need--plenty of dishes, flatware, pots & pans, towels, pillows and blankets. We were lacking for absolutely nothing! We have stayed in many rental cabins in the north Georgia mountains but this will be our "go to" cabin from now on--it just has that wonderful welcoming feel to it. It's a special place for sure. I would also like to brag on Carol, she was very accommodating to work with and was available anytime I had a question--so much so that I popped into the local antique mall hoping to meet her before we left town! That tells you how enamored we were with the whole experience! We will definitely be back again. 💕

Heavens door

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time , the house was amazing and the porch and view were so relaxing you just wanted to stay outside and take in the view . The rooms and decor thru out the house were so comfortable and the kitchen and grill were great you diffently don't need for anything . Another plus was I got to bring my Felicity (dog) which is part of the family ... The location is great close to a lot of things to do , we rented a boat from The Ridges resort marina (dog friendly) 30 mins from Helen and waterfalls to hike to... Thanks again for sharing your home with my family .

Not worth the price

  • 2 of 5

Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door is very nice with a nice view. Well stocked with plenty of towels, blankets, dishes and kitchen utensils. Beautiful fireplace, kitchen and baths. The furniture was a bit diverse. Some was great and some looked like it had seen better days. One of the bedrooms with a queen and 2 sets of bunk beds, had no dressers. A few of the doors are in need of repair. They scrape the floor when opening and closing. Forget using the upstairs bathroom quietly at night. The home for the most part was very clean but hard to reach stuff like the living room chandelier had lots of dust. Not good if you have allergies.

The driveway is VERY steep. I have stayed at several mountain cabins and this driveway is the worst. We rode here on motorcycles. Do not rent this if you have a motorcycle. If you were on a bike and it rained, the driveway would be nothing less than dangerous. The owner did warn me about the driveway but said other bikers had stayed with no problems. I called the owner on arrival concerned about the steep driveway. She said “sorry, I warned you and no refunds”. After a brief civil conversation on both sides, she hung up on me and never returned my call back. I guess this is the kind of service you may get if you have a problem here.

If you go in the summer months, use plenty of bug spray. Four of us got eaten by chiggers after walking on the grassy areas. Their bite is much worse than a mosquito bite.

After reading all the great reviews I was really looking forward to staying here but for the price, you can find much nicer cabins.

Located just minutes from the town of Hiawassee yet close to the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds, you'll want to check out the calendar of events online at the chamber to see what festivals, concerts and shows are coming up & plan accordingly. There are free concerts on the square, weather permitting, each Saturday night during the season. Local artists display their wares in many of the quaint little shops along the way & antiquers will have fun mulling over the booths there as well. You'll enjoy a wide variety of restaurants with cuisines ranging from Sushi to Barbecue & everything in between. Bring your boat & dock it at a nearby marina or rent a pontoon, jet skis or kayaks & spend the day on pristine Lake Chatuge, the jewel of Hiawassee! Families with small children will want to visit the Cabbage Patch Museum or trout farm & everyone loves a picnic at one of the nearby waterfalls. Don't miss the Alpine village of Helen just 30 minutes away, and plan to go tubing on the river!

Other Activities: boating, fairs, festivals, concerts, kayaking, canoeing, panning for gold, Octoberfest, shopping, fairgrounds,
