Reviews for this vacation cabin rental in Carters Lake, Georgia
March 23, 2015
Nice secluded cabin with great amenities. Only 1 complaint, it was difficult to enjoy the backyard fire pit due to the steep grade.
Thank you James for your review on the cabin and for being our guest. We try our best to accommodate all our guests and that is why we have 2 fire-pits; one located at the front of the cabin on flat terrain and the other fire-pit in the backyard for those guests who are used to the mountain terrain.

we really enjoyed our stay at the mountain house. Very nice layout with 1 bedroom and bath on each floor. There's a game room on first floor also what's fun for kids. Its a bit far to the house from the main gate at about three and a half miles up and down hilly winding roads.the rear entrance at Apple Road is easier. Be prepared to cook your meals in a nice kitchen as dining is a bit far. There is horseback riding and tubing in the area. The owner was really nice.
Our gated community in Talking Rock Creek is an actual mountain. The cabin is located in the heart of the community on a private street. It's great for gathering families, couples, getaways and retreats. The ride to the cabin from the main gate provides beautiful scenery of Carter's Lake and mountain views, plus you get a glimpse of all the amenities the community has to offer.
We take pride providing not only a comfortable and fun place to stay but also offering excellent customer service.

So Much Fun
September 2, 2012
**(Adding this at the beginning in case you don't make it all the way to the end of this LOOONG review>) Make sure to get a map from the office and use the Apple Road entrance when you can! It is much quicker to get out and much less hilly! But going out the main entrance you will see some of the most breathtaking views!** Plenty of room for 8 people (3 adults and 5 kids) to spread out. Plenty of space for sleeping, a little tight for eating. The kids LOVED to play downstairs on the pool table and we brought our Wii. Since there are no close neighbors, they could be as loud as they wanted and the adults weren't worried that they'd bother anyone! Plenty of things to do within an hour driving! We spend 3 weeks here and never ran out of fun things to do! Carter's Lake has a wonderful beach area. Quite a few places to learn about the indians that used to live here and the start of the Trail of Tears. The Tellus Science Museum was so much fun! We even went as far as Chattanooga, TN and up to Lookout Mountain! This cabin has a big enough kitchen and updated appliances to cook and serve for 8 easily. 3 bathrooms was VERY helpful! Two pools and tennis courts on site (though it was a bit of a hilly drive for people from Florida)! We quickly realized that it is essential to use lower gears when going down! SAVE your brakes! The TV didn't get too many channels, but there are plenty of movies on site. And we brought a bunch of our own games, but there were a few of those there also. When we were there, it was the only cabin on the street. That means that there are LOTS of trees around. Therefore, not much of a view from this cabin. But as your drive you will see plenty of spectacular views. And maybe as more cabins are added to the street, there will be a few less trees in the way. DId wake one morning to see a deer on the other side of the street! NEATO! And saw a bunch as we drove through the complex. And, just wish it had been cooler! Working with the owners was more than easy! Thank you!
Mr. and Mrs. Borrowski, thank you for your wonderful review.
We listen to each and every one of our guests to enhance and improve our cabin as we go along. It is because of you our guest that makes this cabin a lovely place to stay. I also, appreciate that you mentioned Apple Road to our guests as an additional avenue. There are 3 entrances and exits to our community, but Apple Road's gate is definitely closer to the cabin. We like to inform you that we currently purchased the top of the line stainless steel dishwasher to replace the one that was there before.
Thanks again and please come back soon,

Great Graduation Week Getaway
May 14, 2010
I so loved this house! It was perfect for our family to stay in while we were in GA for our daughter's graduation. The house is fabulous and very well kept. We loved that everyone has their own bathrooms in their rooms. We used the grill and the kitchen for cooking and felt very at home. The A/C quit working and within hours the repair technician was there and had it fixed. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet, private getaway spot. It was perfect!

Relaxing and Peaceful

The game room was excellent! We have 3 teenagers who enjoyed playing pool. The rooms were comfortable, the view was beautiful at sunrise. We were the only house on the cul-de-sac so it was extremely quiet. We saw 4 deer from our front porch in the morning. We grilled, cooked, played games and enjoyed our time. The only thing that I'd add is that the kitchen could have had a mixer, mixing bowl and cooking sheet but we improvised with what was available onsite.

The cabin was great! However, the drive from the main road to the cabin was concerning. The road looked like it was beginning to wash out in areas. Nothing I read on the cabin prepared me for the huge up and down and curves on the road. Cabin does need a electric can opener.

This cabin offers everything the owner lists and more! I will never stay in another hotel again. I cannot say enough how pleased we were with the cabin...the price, the entertainment room, the cleanliness, the friendliness of the owners (and how promptly e-mails were returned) and the manner in which the owners made us feel welcome at the cabin. My wife and I both felt warm and cozy sitting by the fireplace; it is truly very romantic, extremely relaxing and stress free right down to the deer that came to visit us one morning by the patio deck. The town has everything you could possibly need while there. It's just a great place to visit. There will definitely be a next time and I would recommend it to everyone.

We loved the cabin! What a great place for our kids to play. The fire pit was awesome and the layout was nice. They had every thing extra you would need: hand soap, paper towels, saran wrap, plastic bags, etc. I've been to other rentals where none of that was supplied. The only things I would improve on would be better signage to locate house number. Let people know about the step driveway so they don't bottom out their cars. And the fireplace kept going out on us every 5 or 10 minutes...must have been out of gas. The surrounding towns are charming with lots to do and see! And the town the cabin is located in has everything you need close by. Would go back again! Thanks for letting us share in your Peace Like a River.
