About Martha Hartsfield

Pete and Martha enjoy the mountain areas and enjoy having family gatherings in their mountain home. With 4 children, 12 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren, our home has provided lots of educational and fun activities over the years.

Martha Hartsfield purchased this chateau / country house in 1999

Why Martha Hartsfield chose North Georgia Mountains

This area is beautiful and has something for everyone--shopping, golfing, hiking, water rafting and many more! It is centrally located so that you can visit Dollywood driving through the Smoky Mountains or visit Ashville and get back the same day. We've been staying in and enjoying the area since 1970. We picked out the lot, and we actually built the home ourselves with the help of family and friends.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Awesome sunset mountain views! Beautiful wooded area with wonderful fall colors!

Sunset Ridge

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Sunset Ridge, and we are already trying to plan the next trip. This time the bridge was too cold for much porch sitting, so we opened the blinds and had stunning Mountain View’s while we relaxed around the fire logs. Five cousins joined us and we got in the kitchen together an cooked one night. The kitchen literally has everything we needed. The North Georgia sites and activities are close and we enjoyed shopping in Clayton and eating at the Dillard House. We did not have time to go to Lake Rabun and go th the Falls on this short trip, but we did make it for a picnic at Black Rock.

We love this home which is so warm and inviting. Martha is a jewel of a hostess. The mattresses are terrific also. We have stayed in many VRBO homes in Rabun. County and this is our favorite. Can’t wait to go back, Amy

Awesome mountain and Eclipse 2017 views!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was our base for viewing the Total Solar Eclipse. It is located right in the center of the total viewing area. Six of us came up on Sunday afternoon to beat the traffic as more than 125,000 poured into Rabun County for this event and we did not leave the house until Tuesday morning.

The house came fully stocked with everything you could need. The rooms are comfortable and there was plenty of room for everyone. Each couple had there own bed and bath. There was a bed room we did not use so it can easily handle eight people. Everything was spotless and the grounds were well kept.

Martha was a pleasure to work with. Because the Eclipse was such a big deal, a lot of owners jacked up their rates. Martha kept her normal rate in place and was very responsive to inquires.

We had a fantastic time viewing God's incredible handiwork from this lovely home. We enjoyed it so much, we are already planning a return trip!

We had an absolute blast staying at this cabin The view is absolutely amazing and the cabin itself feels like home. I look forward to coming back and staying again. We had 10 people total and there was plenty enough room for everyone. The owner of the cabin was extremely nice and helpful. We'll definitely be coming back!
