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 weeks at the sister cabin, “Gili’s Cove Cottage” we were pleased to be the very first to stay at BBC. What an amazing place to stay. There just aren’t enough adjectives to describe the beauty of the Tusquittee Valley or the VRBO opportunities on Serenity Lane. The moment you cross over that sweet bridge which spans the Tusquittee River, you enter heaven on earth. Serene, forested, cool, calm…and on and on. BBC was every bit as spotless as their other property, Gili’s Cove Cottage, and offered a more “cabin-y” feel to it. A huge porch wraps around 3 sides of the home. With 3 bedrooms available, we invited two couples to come stay for a few days and enjoy it with us. Jorge and Linda couldn’t be more welcoming or hospitable! We count them as family now! And they loved our dog Abby and made her feel at home with sweet doggie bowls and feeding area close to the kitchen. And we knew if we were going to be gone for the day, Linda would take Abby for a walk for a very reasonable fee. Where can you get that when you travel with a pet? And that creek!! You will never want to go inside. The sound is SO soothing. You honestly forget all your troubles back home when you cross over that bridge. There are so many things to enjoy in the areas of Hayesville, Brasstown, Hiawassee and Murphy. All are within easy driving distance and offer a variety of adventures for all. We’ll be back in the Fall and chose Serenity Lane to be our VRBO of choice! I know you will, too, dang it!
