My husband and I stayed in this lovely condo for a weekend getaway. Although there was some difficulty finalizing the reservation(1st time to rent on Flipkey) the owner was easy to work with and took care of the problem promptly. The condo was very clean, the king bed was comfy and the location was great. Although the condo is small(set up like a studio apartment.) we had ample room for the two of us and it was well stocked, even had a washer & dryer. We were able to walk to everything in town in just a few minutes. Had lunch at Bondensee, which we highly recommend for their homemade German food. We closed down Bigg Daddy's bar/grill Sunday morning :-) and didn't have to worry about driving back to the condo. We will definitely be staying here again.

From the moment we got there till the time we had to leave this beautiful home on the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia meet and exceeded all of our needs. The owners are very nice and gave us lots of info on the area. We had our parents and brother&sister in law over for dinner and had everything we needed to give all a very enjoyable evening. We would most definitely recommend this home to everyone. We also saw a bear on our last night.
