Oh, what a wonderful week we spent here at Cottontail Cottage! We immediately felt at home. The fresh air, the natural sounds and the friendly people. That’s just like the countryside in Germany, where we grew up. On the days the sun was shining we went out for long hikes. We especially liked the Chatooga River. The Sandy Ford Area with Dick’s Creek Falls was our favorite. We didn’t care about the rainy days as long as we knew that we could come back home, take a hot shower, and cook a wonderful dinner. Then we spent the rest of our energy screaming at the Yahtzee game and of course Baby Sophia won the screaming competition! There is still a lot left we have to explore. Hopefully we will have the pleasure to return to Cottontail Cottage and Sophia will be able to m-o-o at her beloved cows!

Thank you for sharing your home, just a warm note to thank you for your hospitality and to tell you that it meant so much. Your cottage is the most wonderful place to enjoy "Mother Nature.” Hope to see you again soon, Sincerely, Ursula and Paul 

What an amazing cottage-the pictures don’t do it justice!!! 
We found comfort, peace….and a calm quiet we haven’t had in a long time. You guys thought of everything-we felt pampered & we can’t thank you enough. We’ll definitely be back & I’m sure we’ll be sending others to enjoy the same experience we had! Thanks again! Cheryl & Chris, Brian & Tricia, SC

Sure glad we found you! The cottage is beautiful & I have never seen any place so clean – neat and well decorated. You are delightful landlords and we really enjoyed our stay. Mary & Dick, FL

We don’t want to leave! It’s been a wonderful little getaway! Cottontail Cottage is first class; it’s the first cabin that we’ve stayed in that wasn’t furnished with used stuff and hand-me-downs!  Warm ambiance, great view and lovely accommodations. So glad we found you and can’t wait to return. Thank you, Ann, Barb and Sherri, Orlando, FL

This has been a perfect getaway in the mountains! Rabun County and Cottontail Cottage are absolutely gorgeous! Our favorite moments have been sitting on the front porch rockers taking in the gorgeous view and sitting in front of the fireplace each night. We took a few day trips which were wonderful. I think I took 3 rolls of film in the 4 days we were here. We will have to save the rest for next year when we plan on coming back to Cottontail Cottage! Thank you for your hospitality. This cottage is perfect! Mandy & Edwin, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Cottontail Cottage has been an extraordinary and wonderful experience, beginning with your warm welcome and gracious hospitality. Our weekend in Rabun County has been memorable beyond all expectations! We enjoyed the full moon rising through the gap on Friday night and the heavy morning mist on Saturday. All this beautiful nature and the warm cozy cottage will definitely have us visiting with you again. Randal & Lisa, Atlanta & Folkston, GA

Gorgeous! The maples are just beautiful this time of year and ending the day with a roaring fire is perfection. We love the antique lanterns and all the extra touches- it’s obvious how much care and thought went into this place. What a wonderful retreat – Thank you! Ann & Marc, Atlanta, GA

As fate would have it, we have had a memorable weekend at Cottontail Cottage. We experienced the incredible scenery, really amazing! It was also a treat to sit on the front porch and do nothing! Thank you for being so kind and we will also treasure our time here at your “little piece of heaven.” Barry and Joanna, Myakka City (Sarasota), FL.

Our goal was to have a relaxing, stress-free weekend in the beautiful North Georgia mountains. We certainly met our goal! Cottontail Cottage has everything we could possibly want or need – beautiful setting + view, tastefully decorated cottage providing comfort with a touch of luxury, all essentials plus a personal welcome! Even the cloudy, then rainy weather did not dampen our get-away weekend. We had movies, popcorn, books and quiet time. We enjoyed driving around the area, visiting the Whistle Stop Antique Mall in Franklin and dining at Julia’s and at Isabelle’s. A lovely weekend – We will be back! Betty & Mike. Newnan, GA

We came here to relax and that’s what we did! What a cute cottage – a beautiful view and Quiet! My husband took pictures and I painted with watercolors! The rain on the roof was so relaxing – watching the birds, the farm across the way & just quiet! Can’t wait to come back! Jim & Donna, Marietta, GA

This has been the perfect escape for my friend and me. Because of health issues we were unable to have many “adventures” but, we were not wanting any, either. The Cottontail Cottage has been very peaceful and free of our day to day stress–for that we are most grateful! Thanks, Cathy, Sugarhill, GA

What a beautiful little cottage you have here. It was such a joy watching my son “take charge” of building the fire everynite. He was so helpful to me during our stay – cooking, cleaning, getting up – GOSH – why can’t he do that at home!!! We played and played on the hills behind the cottage. We explored everywhere & hiked and hiked. We enjoyed some of the beautiful views and waterfalls. Yes, we walked those steps up & back of the Tallulah Gorge. The suspension bridge was scary! We went to all the antique shops in the vicinity and took the short drive to Helen. The last day was the very best and what we came here for. We went whitewater rafting! If you have never been – you must try it. It’s awesome!!! Thanks again Peter & Debbie It was a Blast! Debbie & Cody, Orlando, FL

Thank you very much for letting us use “your little cabin” to help us celebrate our 39th anniversary! We were very much impressed with your hospitality & your concern to make sure we had everything we needed. We will be coming back & will recommend your cabins to others. Hope to see you soon! Cecil & Barbara, GA

Thanks so much for a lovely relaxing stay. We especially enjoyed the calm of a grilled dinner on the porch after our whitewater rafting trip. We’ll definitely be back – maybe next time with the kids! Perry & Cindy, Lexington, SC

To 2 of the most wonderful people you’ll ever meet, We would like to say Thank You for letting us stay in your beautiful cabin. Out of all the cabins we have stayed in, we love this one best. We have felt so at home that we don’t want to leave, but we have to. We will be staying here again. Tommy & Wendy, Rusty & Jean, Eufaula, AL

Once again, we had a wonderful time here – lots of peaceful relaxation. We took lots of scenic drives with frequent stops to check out antique shops. The cottage is, as always, just perfect! We love visiting both Cottontails! Betty & Mike, GA

Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful cabin. We have loved our stay & hope that we can take advantage of coming & staying in the future. This place has a great energy that relaxes and comforts all that stay. We did not get to enjoy all the sights, but there really was no need. We found that this place offered all the beauty, peace & tranquility that one could hope to find. This has been the perfect cabin escape & we leave recharged & refreshed. Thank you, Michael & Kellie, SC

Minnehaha Falls should not be missed! An easy 15 minute hike to beautiful falls  - a great place for a picnic. The Tallulah Gorge was awesome, the new suspension bridge was a challenge, but worth the time. Great short film in the visitor’s center. On your way there, stop at the overlook for some really great homemade ice cream!! (Yum, yum!) Black Rock Mountain State Park has a terrific view and lots of great hiking trails. Lookout Point is an easy hike with great scenery and perfect for “little ones.” Shopping doesn’t get any better than in Dillard. Nice shops that fit everyone’s budget. Cottontail Cottage is just the place to relax, gather your thoughts and connect with nature. We had a memorable time and plan to make it an annual retreat! Thanks for the terrific hospitality! The Hill Family, Delray Beach, FL

Thanksgiving at the Cottontail
We believe everything happens for a reason and having our plans cancelled at the Dillard Chalet caused us to find the Cottontail Cottage. What Luck!  We have been to this area many times before but it was especially rewarding to share its beauty with my parents. We could tell that you put a lot of work into your planned day tour of the falls & sights. It was an excellent day and your effort & guidance were well appreciated. Dillard House for Thanksgiving was a fun and unique experience. We can’t decide what part of the trip was our favorite. The cabin, the view, the falls or you two making your guests feel like family. We think a little bit of all of it made for a wonderful mini vacation away from reality. Debbie and Peter, you have really outdone yourselves at Cottontail. Thank you for letting us share your little piece of heaven. Now we know why you feel that way too. God is all around you here. Rose, Alan & Jake, Tallahassee, FL – Phyllis & Alfred,

Christmas & New Years @ Cottontail Cottage
What a wonderful time we’ve enjoyed here at the cottage. We fell in love immediately with the cottage- its quaint, charming, country decor is what we love! Debbie & Peter, what excellent hosts, very gracious and intent on making our stay comfortable & fun. Hiking was a spiritual & relaxing experience. The James Edmond Trail @ Black Rock, The Glenville Falls hike & the Whitewater Falls. We found the people in these here parts very friendly. We drove through the mountains of Georgia and North Carolina oohing & awing so often, it almost hurt it was so beautiful. We ate the best Southern fried chicken @ Mama’s in Franklin and The Dillard House dining experience is one not to be missed. I could go on ad nauseum, but will just say…….we love it! Sue & Bev, North Point, FL

The January Snowstorm
Our drive to Cottontail Cottage may have been one filled with worry, but our stay here certainly wasn’t. We enjoyed being “showed in” with nothing whatsoever to do! We were able to read, nap, and enjoy the videos, Thanks, Peter! Sarah-Katelyn witnessed her first snow and crawled forward (rather than her usual reverse) in this tranquil “piece of heaven.” It was a welcome change from the usual “rat race.” We finally ventured out to Highlands, we stopped on the way to enjoy breathtaking views and a few icicles. Beautiful!! Thank you for sharing Cottontail Cottage. We really appreciate the gracious hospitality. We will be back soon! Don, Susan & Sarah-Kate, Anderson, SC
