About Mark and Saralyn Davis
Mark and Saralyn are both retired and thought it would be great fun to buy the cottage next to their home and renovate it for visits from their ever growing family: a guest house. It had wonderful potential and just needed a lot of love. Mark is originally from Covington, Ga. and was in the insurance business for over 40 years. He also played in a band called the Statesboro Blues Band for 26 years. He enjoys repairing, restoring, and building tube amplifiers. He still rocks! Saralyn is a retired school teacher. She taught gifted language arts. She also sang back-up and harmony for her husband's band. She is originally from Sandersville, Ga. The Davis Family has two children who are both married and 3 grandchildren.
Mark and Saralyn Davis purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Mark and Saralyn Davis chose Cornelia
We purchased this property because we have a growing family and we knew this would make a perfect guest house. Our children and their families love the North Georgia Mountains. They helped design the cottage to meet their needs, so we know it will meet yours. We always loved vacationing in this area because of the cooler summers and breathtaking views. This cottage provided us an opportunity to share our love of the Northeast Georgia Mountains with our family and many others. Many renters have suggested we raise our price, but we like making it affordable.
What makes this Cottage unique
The secluded setting allows people to unwind from the daily rat race and enjoy nature and the activities it affords. The river is heard all over the mountain. October: The fall is stunning in the foothills and mountains. The leaves are magnificent. Depending on the weather, the leaves peak about the 3rd or 4th week in October and have actually peaked the first week of November. Helen, the Bavarian Village, celebrates October-fest the entire month with an array of activities. The Chattahoochee River is gorgeous. It is called the Living River because it sings. Kayakers, swimmers, and fisherman love it. There are many wineries in the area that are stunning. Antiquing: This is the area for magnificent finds. There are a plethora of antique shops filled with unique and interesting items.

Fantastic cabin by the river
The cabin was perfect for the three of us - located on a large property by the owners house and near the river. We lived that we could hear the river flowing all the time we were outdoors on the patio or near the fire pit. The cabin had everything we needed and great access to Cornelia and Helen ( within 20-39 min). We loved every minute we were there!
Will be a repeat visitor
This location was a great location to able to experience the surrounding areas. Place was extremely neat & clean and ready for our stay. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay the Owls Nest is the place for you.
We had a great time staying in the cabin. The area is beautiful, cabin was clean and comfortable. There was a full bath and bedroom on the main level and a half bath and bedroom upstairs...perfect for our party. Our hosts were wonderful...we’d love to come back.
The Owl's Nest was loaded with extras and very well decorated. Not near any place to fish.
Had a great time and it is a very nice place.
Very nice place to stay, had a wonderful time.
You can hear the Chattahoochee River from the deck of this lovely cottage. ,This section of Chattahoochee is called the living river because of the shoals and falls. Guests love fishing, swimming, and kayaking in the 'Hooch'.
The cottage is located within minutes of Helen- the Alpine Mountain Village-, Tallulah Falls and Tallulah Gorge - where hiking trails are great fun-, and Dahlonega - where GOLD was discovered in Georgia. You can pan for gold and gem stones at several locations. While in Helen, don't miss Unicoi State Park. Cleveland, only minutes away, is where you can find Baby Land General - The Cabbage Patch Babies!
There are many wineries located in this area and wine tastings held daily. You can also visit Clayton and Dillard where the views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are stunning. Be sure to eat at the Dillard House! There is NO food like it on the planet.
The Upper Chattahoochee and the Soque Rivers are world renowned for their trout.
There are also many festivals held in the area: gold, apple, mountain laurel, arts and crafts, wine, and on and on. There is always something going on.
