About this listing
We love that our cabin has all elements of nature: all pine interior, fire place, porch surrounded by trees that will make you feel like you're in a treehouse-and yet has all the comforts of the city: Wii, HBO, Roku, Chromecast, WiFi, & smart TVs
The Dogwood Cabin is located on 33 acres of rolling hills, creeks and lakes nestled in the pristine North Georgia Mountains. The all pine interior and wood burning fireplace greet you when you open the door. 24 hr on-site support + hi-tech amenities.
Enjoy fall leaves or winter snow in a private cabin that is a little bit country...and a whole lot of Ikea. Modern/Rustic decor with all "mod cons" (3 smart, flat screen LED TVs in all rooms, washer/dryer, dishwasher, indoor Jacuzzi Tub in master bathroom, WiFi, Wii, Chromecast, HBO, Roku and fully equipped kitchen). Fresh linens and towels provided in this two bathroom that sleeps 6 (1 king size bed in master bedroom, a full-sized bed in the sleeping loft, a queen size sofa bed in the living room, and a single sofa bed in the loft). Our cabin is both kid friendly (our son loves the hammock, Wii, DVDs, toys, etc.) and completely romantic (we love the Jacuzzi tub, quiet porch views, fireplace, and how we are set away from all other cabins for privacy). In truth, our son loves the Jacuzzi, too. Enjoy coffee, full meals or a nap on the wide back porch that has a sleeping hammock, gas grill (no charcoal mess), and rocking chairs. Trout fishing (2 fishing poles provided), beautiful Vogel State Park & Lake Windfield Scott, and horseback riding nearby. The cabin is 20 minutes from the start of the Appalachian Trail, and 15 minutes from Brasstown Bald, Georgia’s highest mountain. We stay in the cabin for part of summer and live full-time in Miami. Our family lives in Blairsville year-round, so we are familiar with the area and have lots of suggestions for things to do and places to go if needed. Remember, we have on-site, 24-hour help from someone who will meet you at the cabin and is able to guide you to local sights when needed (or get you more firewood). We are also a text or email away for special requests or assistance. We travel internationally a lot (family in South America and Germany); we understand the unique needs of travelers that may arise.
Special rates for anyone who rents for extended stays. Let's talk.
The cabin has a fireplace (free firewood provided during the winter months), full kitchen, indoor Jacuzzi tub, 2 full bathrooms, electric AC/heat, fully-loaded kitchen, 3 smart LCD TVs with HBO, Chromecast, a Roku, and a Wii, and a gas grill with gas provided. There's Netflix, WiFi, and free nationwide land-line. (The land-line is important, as the remote location can interfere with cellphone reception.) On-site trails and creeks.
Interaction is as often as necessary. We are available via text, (website hidden), or cell phone and we have a property manager who lives 40 yards away in another cabin. If you want support or have questions, we are available.
Some of our favorite things to do, details of which you will find in our guest book: Vogel State Park, Lake Windfield Scott State Park,
Tubing in Helen, The Christmas Tree farm down the road, Breakfast at The Griddle, Running at Meeks Park, working out with a weekly pass at Union General Wellness Center and fishing in some of the area creeks
We have two fishing poles available for use for our guests, and we also have a kayak (life vest, oar) available for your use if interested.
You will have full access to the entire cabin, plus all amenities.
Interaction with Guests
We are available via call or text as needed. But we have an on site property manager who can handle all smaller issues or questions.
Pets are allowed, but incur an additional $50 cleaning fee, since we need to do a particularly good job at getting the cabin ready for our next guests. We would appreciate it if you did not smoke inside the cabin.
What a beautiful cabin! It was everything we hoped it would be and more... Exactly as described. Felt like we were in a tree house with the view off the back porch. Nelson was very responsive to all questions and really made us feel so welcome.. Highly recommended! Would love to stay here again.
The dogwood cabin was just the perfect get away for the weekend. It was a welcome and comfortable home away from home. It had everything you needed and more.
Our stay at the Dogwood was perfect! Checking in was smooth and the cabin was so cozy and clean! It was even better than the pictures. The cabin was equipped with just about everything we needed for cooking and entertaining. The beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were spotless and water was hot. The porch was definitely our favorite spot though! Although we didn't meet the host, he was very friendly and quick to respond. He was also able to accommodate our last minute request to which we were grateful! Larry, the property manager, was super friendly and helpful as well! We definitely want to return again. Thanks for a fantastic experience!
Hosts are great. Very professional and responsive. The cottage was very clean with lots of personal touches. Definitely planning to stay again in the future!
The cabin was perfect for us- two mostly retired couples. It was set up when we got there and we were greeted shortly afterwards by Larry, the local manager. The road in was paved and an easy drive. The cabin was close to a couple cabins, but we felt very private because of the trees, the layout and a nice porch. It was close to Vogel Park, where my son was running a trail race and friends were camping. An impromptu lunch at a magnificent waterfall was one highlight of our trip.
The house included local information and some very good maps of the back roads.
Loved our stay. Beautiful place that has everything but bring you own shampoo. Full wood interior and vaulted ceiling create the cabin experience. Very peaceful, relaxing, and remote. But electronics galore for entertainment. Will definitely come back in the future. Well worth it.
Apparently there was a miscommunication between owner and manager, the place wasn't cleaned when we arrived. The manager got the cleaning lady to come then, which was great. We had a dinner on that night and the towels weren't dried until 730, others not until the next morning, pretty incovinent. Nice place though, not as private as I thought it was going to be, it is in a cabin rental community. Couldn't find the French press coffee machine as on the iternary. Beds were comfortable. Fire place was nice. Not thrilled with it not being cleaned..
Indeed we had an issue with our cleaning person and property manager misunderstanding the arrival, but I take responsibility as it's ultimately on the owners to have this taken care of. I tried contacting our guests several times to offer an apology, reduced rate, and additional free nights, but never got a response. As you can see from our multiple 5 star reviews (nothing but 5 star reviews, in fact!) this is an extreme exception. But indeed it feels terrible when you are the exception. Rest assured that having a great stay is our ultimate priority, and we will do whatever it takes to ensure our guests' stay meets their expectations. That said, we do NOT have a French press, but rather a drip / grinder setup, as well as a regular coffee machine.
