This property is our family guest house to the main house. We enjoy sharing it with good people when our grown children and their families are not visiting. The Owl's Nest, named so for the late nights our family worked on it, is well located close to Helen, Clarksville, Cleveland, and Dahlonega. You are just a short drive away from everything in this area.
This cottage is newly renovated from top to bottom. River access is located in front of the main house about 100 yards away. Earth steps lead down the mountain to 300 private feet of the Chattahoochee River. (Not recommended for the very young or the very old). There is no view of the river from the cottage in the summer months because of the rich canopy; however, in the fall and winter you can see dappled views from the fire pit area and deck. You can always hear the water running over the shoals year round.
The cottage has all the basics. Our children made sure it would have everything they needed when they visited, so it does have all essentials plus some: television, Direct TV, landline telephone, DVD player, movies, games and Wifi. There is also a dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, blender, crock pot, toaster and a washer/dryer(he). The kitchen contains cookware and utensils, and even some extras. Coffee, salt and pepper, coffee filters and all dishes, glasses and cookware are provided. One roll of paper towel, dish detergent, dishwasher detergent, dish towels, trash bags, tissue, hand soap, bath soap, towels and sheets are all there. All you need to do is walk in, unpack, put up your groceries and enjoy!
The master bedroom has a queen size bed, the upstairs bedroom has a full size bed, and the sofa-bed (which is very nice, Sterns and Foster) is a queen.
The house features a covered deck with a charcoal grill in the fire pit area with Adirondack seating and picnic table.
There is ample parking space, so you may want to bring your kayaks or trailer. Wildwood Outfitters, 5 minutes away, also rents kayaks and has tours. We suggest putting in at Wildwood and taking out at Mossy Creek. Wildwood is set up to help you do this.
There are wineries, antiques, gold and gem mines, mountain restaurants, pony rides, zip lines, cabbage patch babies, kayaking, tubing, water falls, rivers... There is always something to do in north Georgia.
