Big Canoe Lodge – the name says it all. The gleaming canoe suspended over the great room represents the best of what the North Georgia Mountains has to offer. Here, nestled deep in the woods, you’re connected to the streams, lake, and rivers around you, situated on two acres of land with gorgeous long-range vistas. If you’re looking to hang your “Gone Fishing” sign, this is your dream destination.
This beautifully appointed North Georgia cabin rental, with maple hardwood floors and striking architecture, is professionally decorated with comfort and style throughout. You’ll feel surrounded by nature in every room, with wildlife and forest-themed accents like the locally crafted antler & wagon wheel chandelier in the dining area, wooden “bouquets,” the colossal antlers adorning the double-sided stone fireplace – even the bathrooms have the authentic lodge look with antler lighting and Aspen bark mirrors.
Have your morning coffee on the cozy screened-in front porch with the sunrise and floor-to-ceiling windows provide breathtaking mountain views. When everyone’s ready to head to the river, grab your gear and go. From incredible trophy fishing to swimming and tubing, kayaking and of course canoeing, your days spent in the water will float blissfully by. After an exhilarating day of outdoor adventures, soothe sore muscles in the dry sauna, or head out to the hot tub for a nice long soak.
Make dinner in the stylish gourmet kitchen and you won’t miss a minute of conversation – the island seating area allows the gang to keep you company while you prepare the day’s catch to share indoors or outside among the trees. There’s plenty of room on the 60-ft. deck for everyone to enjoy the million-mile views. After dinner, snuggle up around the deck’s fireplace while watching the outdoor TV, head down to the fire pit for marshmallow roasting, or simply relax on the porch swing with a glass of wine.
Kids young and old will enjoy playing pool or ping pong in the game room. There are also board games, chess, checkers, and Wii to entertain the crowd. Upstairs, the loft area can host the perfect sleepover party with bunk beds, a pullout sofa, seating area with TV, and even its own full bath.
On the main level, the luxurious master bedroom suite will treat you to a sumptuous Aspen canopy bed, double-sided fireplace, walk-in closet, and steam shower. Step onto the balcony for a last look at the stars. The main floor’s queen bedroom has a hand-carved log bed and a full bath. The first level also offers beautifully appointed king and queen bedrooms.
Here at Big Canoe Lodge, you’ll feel at one with nature, in the middle of an awe-inspiring wildlife highway. How soon canoe get here?
