Big Canoe holiday stay
Spent the week of July 4th at this house & everything was fabulous; the home is large & has lovely mountain views. Lots of extra features in the house itself made it relaxing & enjoyable (rec room, outdoor decks, outdoor kitchen, etc). Big Canoe community is laid back but has many activities such as boating, community pool/lake (small fee), jogging trails, and Atlanta is a short day trip (90 min.) ”
