Photos and Description of this Warm Springs holiday cabin

2/2, Romantic Log Cabin, Rockers On Wrap Around Porch, Fireplace, Jacuzzi, W/d

Whether you plan to celebrate a honeymoon or anniversary, or enjoy a few days of "family time", we welcome you to Casa Cardinal. Rock on the porch, or go for long walks in the woods, then enjoy cooking in a completely outfitted kitchen. Savor the sounds of nature, or watch your favorite games on satellite TV. This is a custom built cabin offering a peaceful retreat! and located, literally, at the end of the road at Mountain Top. As you'll see from the most sweeping porch in the resort, cardinals, hummingbirds, deer and other wood critters appreciate the remoteness, and so will you.

All year 'round, you'll enjoy the ever changing panorama from the porch rockers and swing: spring blooms, summer shade, or cascade of fall color. If you're a winter hiker, you'll return to a roaring fire in the stone fireplace, and a therapeutic soak in the double jacuzzi. Two bedrooms, two baths and a loft - sleeps four adults and 3-4 children comfortably. The decor is comfy without being too frilly, or too "country"... just your "home away from home". The entrance ramp and interior, master bath and bedroom, were built to accommodate guests with mobility restrictions on the first floor. On a rainy afternoon, the upstairs loft provides a comfy reading nook, skylight and a second full bath. Fully furnished for a weekend, or a few weeks, "mi casa es tu casa".

Casa Cardinal is located only a few miles from Callaway Gardens and Warm Springs, and provides a picturesque setting, spacious living, two bedrooms which sleep up to four adults and two children; a kitchen with full sized stove, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker, and all the cooking and eating utensils you’ll need!

Kim, Ali and Stefani invite you to share our take on tranquility.

About KIM M. LEWIS

Kim, Ali and Stefani welcome you to our beloved log cabin and hope you make your own family memories! We three built the cabin to be a place of peace and spirituality-- a place to enjoy nature and one another. Over the years, we have hiked, biked and horseback ridden pretty much all of Callaway Gardens, FDR park, Warm Springs, LaGrange, Westpoint and surrounding countryside. A former military family, we still travel the world, but love to return to Casa Cardinal, to rock on the porch, enjoy the fireplace, play board games and enjoy photography. Now that reliable internet has arrived;-) we particularly enjoy sharing our home-away with other foreign service and military members and their families, teachers, authors & artists,and all who are young at heart or who find the flora and fauna, as well as rich history and outdoors activities in the area, a welcomed change of pace.

KIM M. LEWIS purchased this cabin in 1994

Why KIM M. LEWIS chose Georgia

With roots in Atlanta, but a life spent in Florida, Callaway Gardens was a family "stop" along the oft traveled road in-between. On one such stop, to marvel at the Christmas Fantasy of Lights at Callaway Gardens, Kim, Ali and Stefani found Mountain Top Resort was being planned, near FDR park and above Callaway Gardens. We chose the lot literally at the end of road, bordering the forest and brimming with fireflies and birdlife as a place to relax, observe and enjoy nature and our own ever-changing lives. From the start, young Stefani (later an architectural student and designer) had clear ideas as to how to build and furnish our cabin. Over the years, Ali (now a medical student) and Kim also brought items which reflect our international travels and interests, yet fit harmoniously into our simple place. When the girls were small, the surrounding attractions offered safe but beautiful trails for them to explore; as they grew up, the cabin, Callaway and day-trips to Atlanta's great museums, shopping and restaurants made our cabin the perfect place to share with friends. Designed with future accessibility and space utility in mind, we three plan to keep the cabin for decades to come and to continue to enjoy the seasons of our family's life, as much as the panorama of nature's changing annual seasons, at Casa Cardinal. We hope you will do likewise, as our guests.

What makes this cabin unique

There are many log cabins sprinkled around Pine Mountain and Warm Springs, but our cabin was one of the first. We situated our cabin to allow for privacy and proximity to woodlands nature. We enjoy morning coffee on the porch, rocking or porch-swinging; and evening wine as the sun sets and the wood fire in the fireplace is started. The downstairs master has a jacuzzi and walk-in shower with a built in seat. Upstairs, the girls' room, has a skylight which often showcases a passing moon, as well as a loft for reading or naps. A metal roof allows just the right amount of soothing patter on the roof when the rains come. It's simple, but cozy and convenient. Internet, cable TV, dishwasher and stackable washer/dryer make the cabin modern. If you like the all white sterility of chain hotels, then our cabin is not for you. If you prefer the peace and quiet, and tasteful colors and textures of nature, then you will find your comfy escape here.

Casa Cardinal

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of being a guest at the Casa Cardinal 11/2/2016-11/10/2016. It was peak Fall foliage season and the leaves were stunning.

Kim's cabin was beyond my expectations in every respect. It has everything a person could possibly need. She takes optimum pride in her property and gives attention to every detail.

Rent it and you'll be blessed!

CLEAN, COMFORTATBLE CABIN IN THE WOODS!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Casa Cardinal in Warm Springs, GA. What a treat! The cabin was clean, comfortable and very well equiped. You never know what will be available in a private home. This place had everything we needed. The owner, Kim, promptly answered any questions we had and gave us tips on other activities in the area as well as restaurants to try. The cabin was located within a few minutes of the Gardens in a very tranquil setting. We will most definitely stay there again!

again!

Casa Cardinal did not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

Kim was responsive, helpful, friendly - she truly wants your stay to be all you want it to be! The cabin was clean, well-appointed, and peaceful! The reading nook upstairs is charming. We enjoyed the quiet, the serenity, the deer, and the armadillo. Callaway Gardens and the Butterfly Sanctuary are musts, as is the Little White House. Kim has thought of everything and Millie, our dog, positively appreciated the treats!

Thanks, Kim for a wonderful long week-end!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful. Kim provided us with everything we needed. The cabin was clean and very comfortable. We hiked everyday at FDR Park and did a lot of porch sitting. It was a great place for our soldier to relax during Family Weekend from Fort Benning. I highly recommend Casa Cardinal!
