Beautiful house, feels brand new, super clean, well stocked with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We will go back! The property was pristine, the beds were comfy, the outside dining and rockers were just what we were looking for. The house has walls of windows that are spectacular. We had brought everything down to toilet paper and salt because the reviews said the grocery was so far but the house is stocked with all of those extras. The kitchen is great, the sofa and family room are comfy, the huge TV even has Netflix etc. The Stone Mountain Vineyard is 3 miles down the mountain with a vista all its own and live music. This was an unexpected bene. To reiterate previous reviews.....4 wheel drive!!!! A really special away!!!

a true mountain top experience!

  • 5 of 5

The winding gravel road to the top is sometimes rough and a bit narrow, but that road guarantees great privacy and pristine beauty once you get to the mountain top. (Really~the geological survey marker (3301 ft) is in the back yard!) We loved our week there. The house is just as described, filled with light from so many windows you are literally surrounded with natural beauty. Deer will wander (sometimes cavort) through the yard and dawn and at dusk, the sunrise and sunset will both transfix you, and though my weather app gave no chance for star-gazing, on several nights I sat in a rocker under more stars than I've seen in ages. We used the kitchen for virtually every meal (shop wisely so you don't have to go again) and everything was in good working condition and of good quality. The owners make you feel quite welcome, having things like coffee and tea, flour and sugar, spices and condiments etc etc on hand just for your enjoyment. The front porch and the back patio are both charming. At night the frog symphony was gorgeous and never-ending. Truly, as someone else wrote, staying here will give you an attitude adjustment. So...if you want excitement and nightlife, go somewhere else. But if you want peace, beauty and renewal, this is a wonderful place!

Gorgeous home with amazing views! Extremely relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time staying in a mountaintop home and so glad we chose this house. The views were spectacular, both day and night! It had everything we needed and more. If we wondered if they had something, all we had to do is look in the spot we thought it would be and there it was! We loved the layout inside and the front porch was perfect. The beds were very comfortable too. It was too short of a visit and hard to say good-bye! Thank you for sharing this home!

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is an amazing place to just pack up and get away. It is a great property with beautiful views. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.

The only negative is that it is quite a drive up the mountain with lots of dirt roads. However, the positive to that is it allows you to get away from everything and relax.

Amazing mountain property with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property which is really well designed and maintained. The house is spacious and has lovely furnishings. The front and back porches provide great outdoor spaces for relaxing and the views are incredible. We got great information about hiking in the area and never felt the need to leave the mountain. Can't wait to go back.
