We have 3 homes in the community. There you will see over 150 more guestbook reviews. We can't wait for you to experience the beauty, nature, and peacefulness of Lake Arrowhead.

We welcome you to enjoy our custom log cabin home complete with metal roof which is the color of oxidized copper. Although it is a new home, we have done everything possible to bring the features back to a rustic - turn of the century style. We have 3 bedrooms and a sleeping loft, 3 full baths, hot tub, sauna, game loft, two decks with beautiful views, professionally decorated modern kitchen, brand new electronics, linens, bedding, rustic real log furniture, etc. Our mountain top cabin is nestled in the treetops of one of the highest ridges in beautiful Lake Arrowhead. Once there, you will enjoy the panoramic vista, which includes our pristine, spring fed Lake Arrowhead, Kennesaw Mountain as well as the lights of Atlanta in the evening.

We offer a BOAT RENTAL (Bentley 20' ft pontoon with a 90 hp Mercury engine) at our marina slip for $175/day or $950/week minimum 3 day rental peak season, 2 day minimum off peak season. Sorry, no tubing or any towing. (insurance rules). We do have kayaks and a canoe for free to access to our private lake. Enjoy boating, fishing, swimming, sailing or relaxing on the water while you stay in the tree tops of the mountains.

Wifi is offered at our cabin so you can stay connected, if necessary. Once you enter the front door, we are sure you will want to disconnect. Land line phones are available for your use with free domestic long distance. Smart TVs (HUGE 75' in the living room and 40' in the master) offer both cable, movies, SONOS sound system, music and more.

The great room overlooks the beauty of our community as well as our pristine lake and onto the sights of the North Georgia mountains. There you will find a combination of rich chocolate leather sofas, rustic wood accents and a 75' Samsung smart, wifi TV, with blu-ray player, wii and stereo speakers. A wood burning stove is there for your nostalgic warmth and comfort.

Our state of the art professionally decorated kitchen is designed to bring you back to memories of the turn of the century. The antique camouflaged Elmira stove conceals a secret modern electronic appliance with glass top stove and oven. The kitchen cabinets are replicated to resemble oxidized copper panels, which are accented with black granite countertops, appliances and stainless steel.

Our sleeping loft (capacity for two) encompasses a game loft. There you will find a shuffle board table, table and chairs and all of your favorite games as well as puzzles for your relaxation and enjoyment. This room overlooks the main level and shares the same panoramic view the main level enjoys.

Please take the opportunity to enjoy our community friends such as ducks, geese, fish, frogs, wild turkeys, bears, lots and lots of deer (please be careful at dusk...they are everywhere), our own Bald Eagle, foxes, numerous species of birds, small land animals, etc. We have many visitors from Florida who rent with us and inquire about gators, worries...they do not reside in Lake Arrowhead! We have plenty of community friends ...we ask that you please leave your furry family members at home. We do not feel we can provide a quality vacation home if we allow pets. We love them and hope you understand our need for a pet free environment to accommodate our guests with allergies.

We have very simple rules at our cabin...

Relax, gather with family, take long walks, please don't keep a schedule (we have no deadlines here), smell the trees, count the stars, skip rocks, watch eagles soar (look for our own Bald Eagle on the lake), hibernate, don't feed the bears (they do live in our community), listen to the brook, gather pine cones, take time to laugh, breathe deep and enjoy the fresh air, rest, relax and renew, make s'moresenjoy God's great's the perfect time to explore and of all, no dress code here!

Our home is a pet free house. We are very strict, regardless of pet size, in enforcing this policy. Not only do we have brand new floors, furniture, bedding, etc., but also are sensitive to guests who may have pet allergies. We remain a pet free environment to insure that we will provide a high quality home free from dander and allergens which is crucial to people with allergies. We apologize if this is an inconvenience.

We recommend trip cancellation insurance. Protect your vacation. When we reserve your rental we turn dozens of other customers away while holding the property for you. If someone cancels on us it is hard to find another renter on short notice. When my family goes on vacation we purchase trip insurance, it has saved us a few times.

We do empty the water and clean the hot tub after each renter for your hot tubbing enjoyment!

The focal point of Lake Arrowhead community is certainly our beautiful lake, which is fed by blue, pure mountain stream water. Our lake is one of the largest privately owned man-made lakes in Georgia and ranked the cleanest lake in the state. Lake Arrowhead's clear waters boast depths of over 80 feet. Whether boating or fishing, you'll be sure to fall in love with the beauty of our lake.

We used this facility for our annual marriage retreat. We enjoyed every aspect of it. The only thing was that it rained and the time was short. It was well worth it and we would love to use this facility again in the future as well as recommend it to friends and family. The Leydens cabins are indeed the best. It is really decked out to the max. This one is it!

This is a very nicely appointed cabin with a breathtaking view. Our group of 6 women rented the cabin to attend our golden anniversary from Reinhardt University and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. We highly recommend this lovely cabin.

The house was amazing. Well stocked and well kept. We had two teenagers, a baby and four adults and sleep comfotably. We rented the boat for the whole week and the kids loved it. The two pools were awesome for th e baby. Everything we needed was in the community and Punlix was not to far away either. The kids enjoyed seeing the deer both in the community and the backyard. The adults enjoyed the hot tub at night as well. I would highly reccomend this property.

A nice way to spend a whole week of relaxation in the Lake Arrowhead area. The place is large with three stories. We particularly enjoyed the nice weather, a day at the lake, and sitting on the two balconies. The hot-tub and the sauna made it even better. The place was clean and well maintained. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a relaxing time

Our family went to stay at the house early November for 8 glorious days! It was perfect, from the kitchen, dining and hot tub to the incredible views. We had our adult children visit with all the grands and it was so great. We plan to return in the future, maybe a summer visit. The owners were very easy to deal with as I changed the date more than once.

This home is beautiful and the view is breathtaking. Excellent experience communicating with the owner. I would recommend this getaway to anyone & hope to rent it again one day.

This cabin was the most cozy and cleanest cabin we have ever stayed at! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! We stayed at the cabin the whole time, playing games (our toddler LOVED the shuffleboard table) and just enjoying each other's company! The view of the mountains from the back porch is absolutely beautiful! The cabin is just as immaculate in person, as it is in the pictures! I've never met 2 owners that were as nice, and genuinely caring about their renters, as the Leydens. They truly went above and beyond to make sure that we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay! I would absolutely, 100% recommend staying at this cabin!
