Harkness Hollow - Custom Built Home on 3.5 Acres (Deep cleaning between guests)

Lakefront vacation home with kitchen and patio
Harkness Hollow is near the base of Tray Mountain, over looks Chimney Mountain and sits on 3.5 acres west of Sautee Nacoochee, GA. The house was designed by a Landscape Architect, as a mountain retreat, where the beauty of the North Georgia mountains could be enjoyed. His children, including my brother, sister-in-law and me, have done a renovation that includes many hand built features, including: the bar and bench on the deck, the fireplace mantel, the kitchen shelving, counter top and pantry door, the master bed and the master bath vanity and shelving. Hardwood floors, hand hued beams and wood paneled walls, all give a warm and inviting feeling. The kitchen has been newly reimagined, and a custom bar and bench have been built into the deck. There’s a “summer” room, just across the yard, that’s perfect for morning coffee or an evening cocktail. The fish pond is filled with bright and frisky Koi. A firepit is available for cold evenings. You’ll drink pure, clean well water and enjoy a truly one-of-a-kind home, just an hour and a half drive from Atlanta.

There is easy access to Tray Mountain road, initially an easy mountain road hike that gains attitude as you go along. Unicoi State Park is less than 5 miles away (offering hiking, canoeing, and lake activities), as is Sautee Nachoochee with a Pottery Museum, the Old Sautee Store and a number of shops and restaurants. Ziplining, biking and horseback riding are all within an easy drive. Frichey’s, a tradition in the area, is a large road side stand with year-round fresh vegetables and seasonal items.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Perfectly secluded
We've been to many cabins and this is our favorite so far! Perfect location and very secluded with nice amenities. We would come back here again.

Beautiful garden
We rented this house for three friends from both coasts to have a reunion party. The house and property are accurately described. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed the summer room at all times of day and types of weather--a great place to sit and enjoy a rain storm. The location is great -- easy drive to hiking trails and waterfalls and stores. If you are looking for a wide open view of the mountains you won't find it here but you will find a beautiful cozy copse that wraps you in gorgeous privacy full of birds, wildlife, flowers and all kinds of easter eggs of joy. Suzanne was wonderful. We lost internet service for a couple of days due to the storm. When I called her to let her know she could not have been more warm and helpful. We will stay here again.

Great place
This cabin is gorgeous! The kitchen is very cute farmhouse style and is well equipped. The two queen beds are comfortable but the best part of the house is the summer room. We spent more time in that room than in the actual house. We will be back!

Perfect mountain cabin escape.
Great place and location to explore the area. We loved everything about the property. Highlights was the separate Summer House for family games and great well stocked kitchen and plenty of space to read.
