Peaceful and Refreshing

This cabin was perfect for my daughter and me. 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. One upstairs and one downstairs. the upstairs bedroom has a screened porch too. The bacalony at main level runs full length of the cabin. Beautiful cathedral ceiling. Knotted pine ceiling walls and flooring. Kitchen well equipped with the conveniences of home. Loved the fenced front yard. This was great for our 3 dogs , one lab mix and two toy dogs. The road up to the cabin is dicey at night. We came in after sunset and it was a bit scary. Narrow gravel roads indicative of mountain roads,some steep and drop offs on the sides. You go at a slow pace for sure due to the pot holes ang bumps in the gravel roads. Get your groceries BEFORE you go there. You will not want to 'run' to the store for a butter stick or milk. We took two different days for excursions to Blue Ridge and East Ellijay walking trails. Mainly we stayed put and enjoyed the peace, quiet and songs of the night. We had the windows open, it was just right for us even though it got up to the 90's in the lower leveled towns. Hot Tub is a must do at night. The beds were some of the BEST Sleeping beds I have slept on. I travel and sometimes the beds are not so good. But these mattresses were super comfy, but very supportive. We loved our stay. We will come back for sure.Beautiful area!

Perfectly Peaceful LOL!

My BFF and I have used Sliding Rock the last 2 years for rentals because they are mostly dog friendly cabins without extra fees! This cabin - Laurel Overlook (LOL!) was just amazing! The peacefulness, the serenity. Everything you need is provided - including 1 dog bed, dog toys, treats, and the fenced in yard is pretty big! TV and streaming all worked, which was good because as the agency says, cell service is extremely spotty! A few things to note - you really need AWD or 4 Wheel to get here- if it had rained, sedans without AWD prob wouldn't have. Tree Canopy is super thick, so not a lot of sunlight comes in and its so high you can barely see the forest floor. Great for seclusion, and peace. And as other renters state- beds are super high - definitely needed the stairs to get into and out of bed! LOL! Sliding Rock is attentive and very helpful from Reservation to directions. Hot tub was a little older (could see rust stains on the jets) and it was very chemical smell afterward on skin and bathing suit, but hot and nice! About 20 minutes to Blue Ridge, and plenty of grocery etc. on way 515 before arriving. Loved this cabin! Thanks Sliding Rock!

Amazing Getaway

The cabin was extremely clean and very inviting. The living room furniture is comfortable for watching tv and napping. The kitchen is awesome! Stocked better than my own kitchen at home!! All you need to bring is your food/beverages. The bed was comfortable and provided restful sleep. The bed is high but steps are provided. The hot tub was fantastic after a day of golfing or just exploring the nearby towns. Our favorite spot was the back porch. We had our meals at the high top overlooking the trees. Each morning we enjoyed listening to the multiple birds that were beautifully singing. In the evenings, the rocking chairs were our reading chairs. The staff had made preparations for our pups however they decided to stay home with our son. They would have loved it here. A nice worry free fenced area is provided for your fur babies. The area is very secluded which we appreciated. Very peaceful!! We will definitely book again when in the area. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Secluded Dog Heaven Getaway

The cabin was immaculate and well-equipped for both humans and dogs. The dogs had treats waiting for them along with a doggy bed, blanket, kennel and water/food dishes. We all loved the fenced yard, which was directly off the front door, for easy morning outings. Our daily hot tub soaks under the tree canopy and sitting on the porch listening to the birds was relaxing. The cabin is secluded and we enjoyed walks along the dirt roads to the path along Amy Creek. We had never been to the area and were looking forward to exploring both Ellijay and Blue Ridge. We arrived on a rainy day and the roughly 3 1/2 mile drive, on steep dirt roads to the cabin was bumpy with deep washout holes which were difficult to see in the rain. We adjusted our itinerary to have limited trips up and down the mountain. Our quiet days at the cabin were wonderful as the cabin has everything you need and with nature all around, the dogs enjoyed their extra walks. We visited four breweries, opting to share sampler flights and bring a crowler of our favorite back to the cabin. Grumpy Old Men brewery in Blue Ridge was our favorite, being a bit more upscale and having a bigger range of beers to sample. Cartecay River Brewing has old school video games to play for free including Nintendo Mario Kart which was an enjoyable trip back in time. Cartecay Bike and Brewery has a bike trail behind the shop (we wish we had brought our bikes). The blackberry wheat was my favorite. Both cities have plenty of shops and dining options and the cabin is mid-way between the two. Sliding Rock management was very prompt and helpful when we couldn’t figure out how to find local stations on the TV.

It was a relaxing, enjoyable trip and would have been perfect if we wanted to just stay at the cabin. Be aware, the beds are extremely high. I’m 5’3” and did not feel comfortable getting on/off the bed. I’m also 60 so maybe this wouldn’t even be a concern with a younger person. Th
