The name says it all…Walking through the front door of The Great Escape is like entering a portal to another world – your own private, carefree realm. This gorgeous cabin offers a much-needed escape from the rat race, a chance to reconnect with nature and enjoy some peace and tranquility.
The Great Escape’s secluded setting and sprawling property will make you feel like you have the mountains to yourself. Settle in on one of the deck’s rocking chairs in front of the stone fireplace and you will instantly unwind, mesmerized by your stunning, “front row” view of the Cohutta Wilderness Area.
Inside, wall-to-wall windows overlooking the nearby mountain ranges make this a showplace of natural splendor. This spacious retreat’s professionally decorated wildlife theme seamlessly brings the wilderness indoors, with animals tastefully adorning artwork, lamps and statues.
The Great Escape has everything you need for you and your guests to get away in style. There’s plenty of counter space in the beautifully appointed gourmet kitchen, whether you’re setting out a holiday buffet or a make-your-own-sundae bar. Start the day with breakfast outdoors in the fresh air, or take on an opponent in a round of pool in the large game room after dinner.
Explore the vast property or venture beyond and take in some of the best of what the North Georgia Mountains has to offer. Grab your fishing pole and head to one of the two ponds located within the community or catch some trout in the Toccoa River. Command the rapids with some white water rafting, or roam the hills on horseback.
If you’re simply seeking relaxation during your stay, look no further than what you see before you. You will love simply unwinding in the hot tub at night, gazing at millions of stars as they appear in the sky. When there is a full moon, the view is truly remarkable.
Choose among the three bedrooms’ individual themes, whether you favor wolves, bears or moose as your animal totem. Every cozy room is on its own floor for added privacy. Catch a late-night movie from the comfort of your charming bed, all of which are locally made and custom crafted with hand-hewn logs and several native woods from the area. The desk in the upstairs loft allows you to get a little work done if needed, or perhaps collect your thoughts for the day in a journal.
Your serene surroundings are just the beginning of what makes this beautiful cabin The Great Escape. When you reenter the “real world,” memories of your time here will have you looking forward to your next getaway. Your mountain refuge awaits your return.
