We are a family of 4 with children 8 and 10 years old, and all 4 of us give this house 5 stars! We fished in the creek (and caught trout), walked to feed the donkey and the bull, cruised to nearby creeks (Fires Creek was a favorite), and both cooked and ate locally. We visited the local goat cheese maker, Donna, who was lovely. There is plenty to do in the area (Hayesville has nice local music, etc), and plenty of relaxing to do right there on Tusquittee Creek. It is a truly beautiful setting and terrific house. The house is better than advertised (pics don’t do it justice), cozier and everything just as you would want it. Super beds, shower, bathtub, and anything you could want in the kitchen (hand mixer, birthday candles, plastic dishes for outside, etc). Linda is absolutely accommodating. Can’t say enough good about this spot!! We arrived from Nashville via Cleveland but drove home via the Cherohala Parkway in order to visit Joyce Kilmer Forest on the way home and had gorgeous trips both ways.
