What a great place. The cabin has every comfort and nature all around you. We woke up to deer having breakfast in the yard. The deer are everywhere. We had cold weather and the leaves were in full color. Perfect!

Great cabin!!! The pictures posted couldn't be more representative of where you will be staying. The only area missing is the sofa in the loft area. There were so many deer! We didn't get to make use of any of the aminities of the resort but it was all well maintained. Don't hesitate if you are thinking of renting this great get away from home!

Thank you Mary for your hospitality, you made us feel so welcomed. We enjoyed your home so much, the boys loved it. GA is our home away from home. It's really a good feeling knowing you have a place to go to and feel secure. We did so much there and as I told my boys, we have to leave some activities for when we return. Again Mary thank you, I pray that God richly blesses you as you have blessed us.

My family and I had a great time, enjoying the natural views, the mountains, greenery, water falls, deers, and so much wonder nature offers. It was quite an experience, very inspirational and spiritual to be in touch with nature. The cabin itself was cleaned and perfect for a family of four, it was cozy and surrounded with nature, very peaceful and pleasant, the bond fire outside made it even special for my family and I to enjoy a night out in nature, watch the clear sky full of stars which is something we do not get to enjoy in the big city of Miami. We are planning our next trip to the beautiful State of Georgia, we are even talking about purchasing a piece of land, it is just amazing what nature offers, so delighted and touched by it. Thank you for this outstanding opportunity, we look forward in repeating it soon. Warmest Regards,

My wife and I had a quiet and restfull 2 weeks stay at Laughing Bear. The cabin was very nice an clean. NOTHING was needed. We saw a lot of deer each day. HOWEVER NO LAUGHING BEAR!!!. Mary and Mark are very attentive hosts! We had received a few telephone calls from them to see if we needed any thing. Mark was very apologetic because he had to make a repair in the basement, which took about 30 mins. He didn't like interfere with our stay. If you want a quiet and peaseful place to unwind and relax, this is the place. Thank you Mary and Mark for the nice afternoon at your cabin. This cabin was exactly what we were looking for. Again thank you for your hospitality.

My husband and another couple spent Memorial Day weekend at Laughing Bear. It was our first time and we will definitely definitely be back! I have stayed in a lot of cabins in Georiga but none of them were nearly as nice as this one! Mary and Mark put a lot of effort into making sure you have more than you would ever need, right down to the Aromatherapy soaps in the bathroom. It was without a doubt the cleanest most comfortable cabin we've ever stayed in. The beds were extremely comfy with sheets and quilts you would expect to find in a Ritz Carlton. We explored the entire area and really enjoyed going to Helton Creek Falls. The last night there we went to the Toccoa Riverfront Restaurant and had a wonderful time eating on the deck overlooking the river. It was truly a relaxing and amazing vacation!

Laughing Bear is the perfect cabin for rest and relaxation in the North Georgia mountains. We actually live in Coosawatte River Resort and have used this cabin several times for visiting guests. Of all the choices we have, this one is the best. It is convienently located on the main road and close to very nice parks and river access. All of our guests have loved their stay and always want to return.

The cabin and ammenities were first rate, and the owners were very friendly and attentive. There were deer all over the place, which was pretty cool. The location was great, as there is much to do in the area. That being said, the development is a lot bigger than I expected, and the through traffic is pretty busy. The cabins location does not offer any mountain views. Had a good time though.

My stay at the cabin was great. The minute you arrived it felt like home. The cabin is spacious and nicely set up. The fireplace was warm and inviting. The thing to remember is this cabin is on the mountain. I almost forgot what mountain driving was like. The place was beautiful, my dog enjoyed the dog park, and the walks we took. Drove on down to the general store, the clerk was very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed driving around to all the small towns and browsing and shopping. I will be going again. Next time it will be earlier in the year. I am glad Mark and Mary allow pets. They were wonderful, called to check if I made it okay, and if there was anything I needed. This place is a must stay. I am sure it would be a blast in the summer with all the river activities and warmer temps. Thank you Mark and Mary for sharing your little piece of heaven with others.

My husband, DeLeon and I stayed at Laughing Bear during Thanksgiving. We invited some friends to join us and we had a BLAST!! We cooked Thanksgiving dinner there. Everything we needed was at hands reach. We had loads of fun playing games, watching movies and hanging outside around the fire pit. The cabin was very clean and in a great location. We went shopping the day after Thanksgiving at the North Georgia Premium Outlets and found some great sales. The cabin was very secluded and quiet, which is what we enjoyed the most. My birthday was on the 23rd, so it was a wonderful extention of my birthday. We would definitely recommend to others and would like to visit again soon. Thanks Mary!!!

we didn't want to go anywhere else while in Ellijay! the fireplace heated up fast, the place was super cozy, and we accomplished what we set out for - total relaxation. Saw scores and scores of deer, lit a campfire each evening, and had a cup of coffee on the back porch each morning. The indoor pool is worth the drive as it is almost competition length... and warm! Blue Ridge isn't too far away if you want to check that part out. There are wonderful drives in any direction from Ellijay and the Appalachian Trail Terminus isn't too far away. The only downside is not many channels on the TV. If that is all I can think of for a con, then I think we are talking a 5+ star place!!! The owners were super helpful and very nice. We will DEFINITELY want to stay here again if we get back to this part of N. Georgia.

We spent 4 nights at the Laughing Bear cabin in Ellijay, GA. We really enjoyed the relaxation and seeing all the deer throughout the resort. The cabin was furnished nicely and was perfect for the 4 of us. We spent our days at both an indoor and outdoor swimming pools and we went tubing down the river one day. It was quite enjoyable! The evenings are pretty quiet in town, not much to do, but we were able to spend family time talking, playing games, and TV of course :) There is also a screened in porch to sit on and watch the deer and listen to nature. The vacation was very nice for the whole family and we would love to go back to the cabin again in the future!

The flora and fauna were beautiful, the mountain air refreshing, and the long winding mountain roads and rain were enough to keep us relaxed at this beautiful cabin in the woods. Enjoy the secluded bliss, and thank you so much to Mark and Mary for a supremely excellent vacation.

Absolutely fantastic!! We could not have asked for a better vacation. We went to Atlanta, Helen, Amocalola Falls, Stone Mountain and Jasper. The time we spent in the cabin was great family, quality time. Roasting marshmallows in the fire pit at night and cuddling up to my husband in front of the fire place inside was too perfect. I thought I was dreaming! :) The snow was a wonderful surprise as well. We were able to get straight to the cabin per the instructions provided by Mark and Mary and they were very helpful if we needed anything and were always available. It certainly beat any hotel we would have stayed at otherwise! Highly recommend!

Mary I am sending you out a gift at the end of the week. My family and I had a wonderful time. It was one of the best Christmas the I have ever had. My Daughter Lillian and my grandchildren shared with my husband and myself a memory that cannot be brought in any store. We also had a plus on Christmas Day there was a family of deer's that walk into the yard. The kids loved it. My granddaughter Ember (who is 8 yrs old) said that she was a princess and she loved the cabin. The boy's Kolton and Kolbee (Grandsons 9 and 10 years) said that they wanted to come back again. Mary I can't express that joy we had as a family and the wonderful, beautiful place that is filled with love and joy and to think that we got to be a part of it. Thank you so much Rebecca Walley P.S. I will tell everyone I know about your beautiful cabin, and again thank you.

Had a great time at Laughing Bear and greatly appreciated how detail oriented Mary was in helping us prepare for the trip. We loved the deer that visited the cabin, the fireplace, the numerous state parks in the area, and the wine tasting at nearby vineyards. Even though we were in the heart of winter, there was still a ton to do and see in Ellijay and the nearby towns. Now the only question is when we will have time in our schedules to make our next visit. We highly recommend staying at Laughing Bear!

The only downfall is that we did not stay long enough! :-) Next time we will be sure to reserve for a longer period of time and bring the kids. This mini vacation allowed us to have some much needed quiet time and talk to each other about life in general. We both needed this break from the fast pace of the city. Mary was great and we look forward to renting again.

Wanted time away and this cabin was everything needed. The kids thought we were going camping and when they saw this cabin they were amazed. I couldn't believe how beautiful and relaxing the cabin was. Everything that was needed was there. In great area for sightseeing also. Goldmining, tubing, railroad to Tennessee, shopping and more..and all brocures were in cabin so no need to search. The area was beautiful and deer were amazing. We would definately stay again with no questions asked. Mary and Mark were great and everything was fantastic..If you want a vacation with everything I highly recommend this beautiful cabin. We are home now and my grandson is still talking about the cabin...Anyone thinking about renting this cabin believe me you won't regret it....Thanks Mary and Mark

Your cabin is absolutely beautiful in addition to peaceful and relaxing. The deer everyday were a wonderful surprise but we were especially thrilled when they were right behind the cabin. We went to three parks...The one with the beautiful waterfall was our favorite. Fort Mountain was a bit of a letdown but picturesque nonetheless. After venturing to the recreation center, we were happy that the cabin was in the location it was...being closer to the main highway. We wished we knew where to find the information for tubing. Had we more time, I think we could have figured that out!! Thank you for sharing your cabin with us! It couldn't have been more perfect!!

My 12 year old and I escaped for a long weekend at Laughing Bear and we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our time together. Everything we needed was in place. We ate in for every meal but one and lacked nothing for cooking. We shared the king size bed upstairs (better for the whole sleep-over feel) and they were so comfy my daughter slept in until 11:00 one day. I enjoyed that morning sitting in the peaceful surroundings of the screened porch, listening to the birds, and getting lost in a book. The amenities at the resort were great, with the indoor pool being a big hit for chilly spring days. And not only was Mary easy to work with, but we commented on how friendly and accommodating the entire staff of the resort was. We are already thinking about an opportunity to return with our guys in tow. Thanks for sharing your home with us! And btw, don't miss the fun of the Swan Drive-in at Blue Ridge while you're there!

Really enjoyed a long weekend in the mountains with our daughter and her grandparents. Very relaxing setting, yet a fairly easy drive to state parks, restaurants, shopping, etc. Cabin is very thoughtfully equipped and comfortable. The owners were super-easy to communicate with prior to our visit, and they even gave us a call after we had arrived to make sure we made it there safely. Our daughter loved it so much she wants to go back to Laughing Bear in the summer and fall. Thanks again for everything, Mary and Mark!

Thanks to Mary and Mark who made the arragements so easy! She was on top of everything and I would recommend booking with her for a hassle-free transaction! The cabin is in great condition and we loved every second! Although we didn't catch anything, we attempted to fish in the river, which was very enjoyable! The town of Ellijay is also so qaint and beautiful, only a 10 min drive from the cabin! Thanks again for having us! We look forward to a stay in the near future!

My husband and I wanted to rent a cabin in the mountains for our first year wedding anniversary. For a couple of weeks we researched different locations but couldn't make up our minds. But after speaking with Mary I knew this would be the perfect spot for us. Her description of the cabin was right on point. The view was remarkable. Honestly I don't think there was anything about the cabin that we didn't love. It was cozy and well equipped. This cabin was stocked with just about everything you would need for your trip. All you have to bring are clothes & food. We enjoyed our stay so much that we made a promise to each other to come back soon (even with the kids). Thanks Mary.

My Husband and I are very busy people. When I saw Mrs. Mary posting, I emailed her right away. She got back to me within 30min. My entire trip was planned within the hour. The cabin is as she describes. We had a great weekend full of many memories. We got to actually sit down and talk as if we were teenagers. We road up the mountain, over the bridge and through the beautiful lake. I am thankful that good people still exist. Mrs. Mary was extremely kind and kept in touch with me through the weeks that lead up to my trip. Mrs. Mary and I have already arranged for my family and I to stay in the cabin before the Summer begins. I am thankful for this beautiful stranger who blessed my husband and I with memories will last a life time. I look forward to our next stay at this cabin.

Cute Little Cabin

December 6, 2008

This little cabin is wonderful. We just love the loft area. So warm and cozy. The fireplace heats up the whole cabin making it romantic. Extremely relaxing and stress free right down to the deer that came to visit us one night in the front of the cabin. The town has everything you could possibly need while there. It's just a great place. There will definitely be a next time and I would recommend it to everyone.

This cabin offers everything the owner lists and more! You literally need to bring clothes and, if you don't want to eat out every night, some food!! I will never stay in another hotel again. I cannot say enough how pleased I was with the cabin...the price, 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 (the last one is a surprise!). We were able to catch the leaves changing colors, the weather was BEAUTIFUL, and we saw the wonderful waterfalls that north GA has to offer. I am not one that usually writes reviews, even if my intentions are to do so! However, I really do think this is such a great place to take your family or significant other!

Guestbook

I just wanted to thank you and your husband for allowing us to stay in your wonderful cabin. Our boys loved it! It is the first vacation my husband and I have taken since our two oldest were 4 & 2...they are now 14 and 11! We could not have been more pleased with the location, accommodations or the beautiful scenery. If it were up to my husband and I we would have spent all our time hanging out in the cabin and just relaxing but our boys had other ideas. We took the them fishing for the first time (didn't catch anything but it was great just spending time with them). We also explored Ellijay and spend a day wandering around Chattanooga. The boys have already said they want to come back next year.

Again thank you, thank you, thank you!

Mary & Mark,

Our family was sad to have to leave Laughing Bear Cabin this morning. Our seven days went by soooo fast. We had an absolutely amazing time in the Ellijay/Blue Ridge area. Thanks so much for the wonderful cabin and for calling to check on us several times!

The kids loved the putt-putt and the huge indoor pool at the rec center. They also loved seeing all the deer, especially in the evenings driving through the resort. I think they counted a total of 53 deer for the week.

We spent time at Carters Lake, Blue Ridge Lake, several spots on the Toccoa River, Fall Branch Falls, the Blue Ridge Train ride, and Mercier Orchard, among other beautiful places.

Thanks again for providing a perfect cabin for our family at a great price! We would love to stay again in the future.

Blessings,
