Not only is Blackwell Branch Cabin our yearly fall vacation retreat, this cabin, this vacation, is sometimes a daily or weekly mental respite! My husband and I both literally think about this vacation spot when we’re having a tough day or a tough week. Knowing we have a reserved week every year is our way of telling ourselves, “It’ll all be okay soon. We’ll be in the mountains soon.” The cabin and property are immaculately kept by Linda and Jorge, with plenty of porches for lounging and watching the creek, and plenty of green space for tossing a football or sitting by the fire. The cabins are spotless and well appointed with beautiful artistic touches throughout. With WiFi and streaming movies, you can have all the gadgets going that you want. But why would you want? Linda is great with all communication, keeping me aware of any the weather or road conditions—going the extra mile is a signature Linda move. And we love that the cabin is pet-friendly, but never looks like a pet has been there. It’s so clean and comfortable! Thank you, Linda and Jorge, for creating a sanctuary for rest and re-connection with ourselves, each other, and God’s creation. There’s nowhere else for us in Hayesville!
