It's all about the creek…and the mountains

Perfect Location, Outstanding Rental

This was one of the very best VRBO rental experiences that we have ever had. My family of five stayed for five days over New Years’ and my only complaint is that we could not stay longer. The location of this home is perfect if, like us, you prefer a quieter area in the “real” mountains away from the crowds. The Tusquitee area is a small, rural community of small mountain farms and vacation cabins, surrounded by national forest land, tucked away in the hills some ten to fifteen miles from the town of Hayesville. The scenery is gorgeous, typical of the southern mountains. Tusquittee Creek (really a small river) is steps outside the back door and just beyond that a beautiful small mountain pond. Canoeing, fishing, and plenty of hiking opportunities are at your fingertips. The house itself is immaculate, clean, neat and orderly with everything that you could want to feel at home. We cooked several meals in the kitchen and found every type of kitchen utensil and cooking apparatus that we needed. I just hate that our kitchen at home is not as well organized and supplied! Games and books are found throughout the house for guests use; there is a nice TV with DirectTv and streaming service; a wonderful porch with gas fireplace and great view of the creek. A perfect place for relaxing with a good book or newspaper. (Well, at least I would imagine it would be if you did not have three rugrats to chase around like us). A nice gas grill and fire pit are in the backyard , both of which we also used. Most of all, the owners Linda and Jorge are great hosts. Their own house is just a couple of doors down so they are readily available if anything is needed but not obtrusive in the least. Linda provided clear communication about check in, check out etc and offered lots of information about things to do and see in the area. Linda and Jorge obviously take great pride in their property and that is reflected in the cleanliness of the house (a big deal to my wife – she is very particular about cleanliness and she commented several times during our stay about the immaculate condition of the home). The pictures do not do this home justice. We highly recommend it and just hope that it does not become so popular that we are unable to book our stay for next year!
