Interaction with Guests
We will make all arrangements via phone and email. We will send a "Cabin Manual" ahead of time. John's parents live close by, and are available for any direct needs while staying at the cabin. For your convenience we have left maps and brochures on the table in the living room.
Rural, tucked away. The drive up the mountain is easy and ends with a single lane dirt road coming to the driveway. The community shares some common areas. This is NOT a high end, gated, community but is a rural retreat.
There is NO view - except trees! The house is in the woods, it is on the lower part of the mountain so it is easily accessible. It is just tucked away in the trees.
No public transportation. It is 15 minutes to the nearest market, there is a wal-mart in town (20 minutes), Babyland (20 minutes), Helen (20 minutes), tubing on the Chatahoochee (20 minutes)
Other Things to Note
There is WIFI. The internet connection is only 1Mbps via DSL but at times runs faster and allows streaming videos (during the day it is up 99% of the time, in the evenings it seems to crawl but Netflix is manageable about 85% of the time). We have a phone for toll free calls and emergencies. Phone calls may be received if cellular service not working well.
Washer and dryer in house and may be used.
There are two (2) televisions. A smart TV and Blu-ray player in the living room. In the master bedroom there is a smart blu-ray DVD player. There is no satellite, cable, or antenna TV. Both smart tv's have netflix and hulu plus. Feel free to log in with your own account information. There are DVD's on hand, you can bring your own, or go to Redbox (at Walmart).
We have a cleaning service that comes after you depart. However, to minimize fees we do ask that you remove your trash (there is a dumpster about 3 minutes away), wash towels and at least have in the dryer, and wash your dishes; simple things we all do at home.
NO SMOKING. We have placed ashtrays outside on the porches and ask that you use these and manage appropriately.
PETS - We are pet friendly. However, we do not allow our dog on the furniture or our beds and ask that you maintain the same. We want to be sensitive to others that may stay in the future. Thank you!
There is food in the pantry, food in the fridge and freezer. Our view is to share -- if you use a jar of sauce, then replace a jar of sauce.
This is our second home and we are willing to share with others. Our family photos hang on the walls, our personal belongings are in closets and some drawers.
Most important, please treat this like it is your home.
From Nov 23 - 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
About the Host, John
My wife and I love to travel both internationally and domestically. We use hotels, B&B’s and our RV to see sites in a variety of ways.
I work hard in my job, taking care of my family, and doing the things I enjoy: working out, riding my bike, reading, writing my column, and studying.
I am “ocd” (OCD with a little “o”). I understand the difference between “neat” and “clean”. I keep my own home in order and the places I visit the same: I make my bed, hang my towels, and keep the bathroom sink clean.
”The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” —Saint Augustine
