Guest Reviews

Picturesque Smokies stay

We adored every moment and everything about our stay at Owl cottage! The cottage was cute and cozy, and the grounds absolutely beautiful and so well taken care of. We couldn't stop talking about how perfect it was the whole time we were there! The waterfall was dreamy. We went right after a light rain and the contrast of the black rock of the waterfall and bright green leaves is a memory that will forever be embedded in my heart. We enjoyed our coffee and breakfast while sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch of our cabin and just took in the beauty of the smoky mountains. A perfect stay, perfect place, wouldn't have changed a thing. We will be back!

Third Visit!

Words cannot explain the outstanding time the wife and I had this year at Owl cottage. Every year gets better with time. We sat on the front porch and soaked in God's masterpiece! We ventured to Clayton, Dillard, Highlands, and Otto. And, we must recommend Mamma GS and The Country Cupboard! The food at both places are worth very dollar spent. We will be back in the fall. Sincerely, The Harris Family

I have been on many trips in my life time. At 42 years of age, 19 years of marriage, and 5 kids later, this was absolutely the best trip I have been on so far. The season was perfect, the view was spectacular, and the amenities were exquisite!!! I can assure you that we will be back, hopefully soon.

One with Nature

We had another great time at The Owl Cabin. The setting was perfect...nice cool temperatures, nature, waterfalls, hiking and there were still some fall color for a November weekend. Indeed a splendid time had by all. We'll be back. Cheers Ed & Robyn Woodstock, GA

We love this place! Beautiful grounds, clean, and the cabin is great for 2 people. The view is amazing and it is so quite and peaceful. Wifi was really weak, but we really didn't mind being cut off from that world for a few days. We will definitely be back here. Rosemary & Jimmy Warm Springs, GA

Perfect little cabin for the two of us

Cabin was the perfect size for two people. Had everything we needed and the gas fireplace insert came in handy Saturday night. Beautiful setting overlooking the pond, trees had not begun to change yet but very peaceful just the same. Bed was comfortable and the sheets and towels were nice and soft. Shower was great, shower head was very high up which was a nice surprise. Wifi was somewhat spotty but did not try it much. All in all a very good stay and will stay here again in the future.

Owl Cottage

What a wonderful relaxing time! We actually didn't have to use the air conditioner until we went to bed. It was rainy and absolutely wonderful to sit and relax on the porch. Next time we will cook at the cabin and enjoy it a little longer. The cabin is cozy! Love it!!

On business in the area

I had to come to NE Georgia and W Carolina to look at some properties. I had stayed at the cabins many times before, all the way back to the Moon Valley days. I find the valley and the area very peaceful and serene and look forward to returning again when in the area !!

Family wedding

We were there for a family wedding. It was such a great location and I'm upset that I didn't have more time to just enjoy the location! I would definitely like to go back again some time though.

Slowing Down is a Good Thing

I have to say that our weekend was timed perfectly. The different water features were beautiful, and everything was a dark green. It felt like we were staying and walking in a fairy tale land (Narnia comes to mind). It was wonderful to relax for a few days, and we will most certainly be returning. Thank you so much.
