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 Rabun Gap

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

Well appointed and spacious house with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean inside and out when we arrived. We did alot of cooking and the kitchen is very well appointed. Beautiful view of the mountains and farmland. Spacious bedrooms and common areas. Only small issue we had was some TV remotes were missing batteries. Would definitely recommend to others.

Beautiful home in a quiet but close to town location. Can't wait to go back again!

  • 5 of 5

Best two days in the mountains ever! Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, plenty of space to socialize or find some quiet time, and the fire pit was a huge hit. Nothing but good things to say about the home and the gracious hostess! Thank you, Martha!

Wonderful place for a reunion with friends

  • 5 of 5

Three college friends and their wives shared this home for a long weekend. The house was perfectly suited for our needs. There are 3 separate bathrooms and 4 bedrooms. The kitchen is also well stocked and large enough for several people to be in there at once. The great room also has amble sitting areas. There are many wonderful hiking trails within a short drive. We also were able to use the fire pit during our stay.

Great Place, Great Location, and Great Views.

  • 5 of 5

I usually don't write reviews but I felt that this vacation home was special.

The home is located just far enough from town to give you a true country feel but close enough to all the conveniences and activities that adds to the vacation experience.

The home is very clean and well appointed. Each room has a beautiful setting with a true country look of warmth that makes you feel at home as soon as you enter. The deck offers an outdoor eating area next to the dining area that allows for a more open feel.

The kitchen is well stocked with good cookware, plates, dinnerware and appliances. There was even spices, some coffee and other cooking supplies. The washer and dryer worked great and made our stay even better.

The views from the living area, porch and outside yard were beautiful. You overlook a valley with a mountain back drop which made you feel relaxed and calm. On the days that might be to cool for the porch, the living room offers a beautiful fireplace(gas) that you can sit by and still enjoy the views. There is even a little fir tree with stuffed bears that adds to the overall charm. For those who keep an eye on the weather there is a weather stick that can be viewed from the living area.

For those who need it, the WIFI, cell phone service and TV/Cable worked good.

There is a nice fire pit with a good view on the lower ground level that made our stay even better. Only wish we had done smores.

There is covered parking for two cars with a short uncovered walkway to the house and additional parking for at least two more cars.

If you enjoy cooler weather when it's so hot most everywhere, then visit our home in the mountains! There's golfing close by at Kingwood, The Orchard, or Sky Valley. Horseback riding at Sunburst or the Dillard Stables can be fun for the whole family. You can take the family for a boat ride on Lake Rabun or Lake Burton on a rental boat.

Don't miss the SEVEN WONDERS OF NORTHEAST GEORGIA--Tallulah Gorge State Park (see falls and a canyon 1000 ft. deep), Black Rock Mountain State Park, Nacoochee Indian Mound near Helen, Toccoa Talls (186 ft.) near Toccoa, Brasstown Bald (Georgia's highest elevation at 4784 ft.), Chattahoochee River which originates in NE Georgia, and the Chattoga River for rafting, tubing, and fishing (57 mi. long and forms the boundary between GA and SC).

Visit the Dillard House for great food, and enjoy the petting zoo. A neat place to take the kids to eat is Goats on the Roof. Every Saturday night there's live music entertainment on the square in Franklin. Whistle Stop is great for shopping in Franklin. Local Festivals--pick up Georgia Mountain Laurel for the latest. Biltmore Estates in Ashville. Blue Ridge Parkway Drive with lunch at the Pisgah Inn. Drive up to Highlands to see Waterfalls and to shop. Drive to Black Rock Mountain State Park for a hike, picnic, or fishing at Black Rock Lake. Take the Foxfire Museum Village tour and visit the gift shop down in Mountain City. Visit Wayah Bald in the Nantahala National Forest for beautiful views and hiking. Take a winery and/or waterfalls tour. Go rafting on the Chatooga River or go to the Chattooga Ridge Zipline which has 10 zip sections. Shop for fresh fruits and vegetables at Osage on 441--grown there in Wolffork Valley. Visit Rabun Gap Outdoor Flea Market on the weekends for great bargains.
