Property Details

Blackwell Branch Cabin… It’s all about the creek. 
And the pond.  And the mountains beyond.  Peace, nature, serenity.  Fall asleep to the sounds of the rushing creek right outside your window.  Open the French doors wide and let the fresh breeze in.  Enjoy morning coffee on the wrap-around deck overlooking the creek, watch deer in the meadow and geese in the pond.  Relax in the evening on the rocking chair porch.  Let the kids run – they’ll love the playhouse or just messing around in the creek.

Blackwell Branch Cabin lies nestled between two creeks. It sits right on rushing Tusquittee Creek which can be heard from every room in the cabin and in addition, Blackwell Branch (another small creek) runs along the western edge of the property. This smaller creek is perfect for younger kids to get their feet wet, exploring under rocks for salamanders and frogs. The cabin boasts wide wrap-around decks, a rocking chair front porch and even a two-story playhouse for the kids!  A large section of the rear deck is closed off with gates to keep your small children and pets secure.  There’s a large fire-pit for nighttime campfires right on the banks of the creek.  Take a snooze in the hammock or idle the day away on the yard swing.  Watch the kids try their hand at fishing in the creek.  Catch your dinner right from your backyard and cook it on the gas BBQ grill.

The property:  The cabin sits on three level wooded acres along Tusquittee Creek with a gravel pull-through drive.  Serenity Lane is a dead-end road with only four homes– the first is Gili’s Cove Cottage (our sister property), next is an acre of woods, then Blackwell Branch Cabin, another wooded lot, then our own home.  Beyond our home at the dead-end is our one and only neighbor.  We own all the wooded property between Gili’s Cove Cottage and the Cabin, so children (and grown-ups) can feel free to wander among the trees and wildflowers.  Parents can feel comfortable allowing their children to run and play around the property, in the woods and along the creek.

Room To Spread Out

The large sectional in the living room means there’s space for the whole family to snuggle up in front of the wood-burning stove.

Romantic Master Bedroom In Loft

With fluffy quilts and plenty of pillows, you’ll rest easy after a long day on the trails. Big closets allow plenty of space to stash your stuff.

Great Hospitality

Linda and Jorge were fabulous hosts, and went out of their way to make a celebratory weekend very special. We had a Saturday morning bonus as one of the local planes took to the air and did stunts right above the airfield! Very peaceful setting, super clean house, and great service by the owners.

We have been VRBO renters for many years now and have stayed at many places in the NC, N. GA area. There were not enough stars in the review rating to rate Blackwell Branch Cabin. As much as I would like to keep this place to ourselves, it wouldn’t be fair. After staying for 5… Read more “It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This!”
