5 STARS I have stayed at many cabins throughout GA and TN and this is by far the most relaxing and gorgeous property. We have never had a more relaxing vacation. From reading by the River, to relaxing in the hot tub or playing games with the kids by the fire, it was absolutely perfect! Date of arrival - March 15, 2022

5 STARS The location of the house was perfect for us as it is close to many small town and trails in the area. The house very much nicer than I was expecting and very, very clean. I could not have asked for more. It was extremely relaxing to sit out by the river while we had a fire in the pit. I would highly recommend! Date of arrival - February 25, 2022

5 STARS Love this cabin! It's cozy and serene. Everything was new and well cared for. The kitchen is beautiful and is well stocked with cookware and utensils. The living room is inviting and comfortable with a fabulous view of the river. The bathrooms are warm, clean, and a good size. The two master bedrooms are beautifully furnished and perfect for two couples (though it was only me and my husband on this trip). The mattress was so comfortable we had to ask what it was for future reference (DreamCloud). It was too chilly for us to hang out by the river or fire pit, but I sure loved walking down to the river periodically to watch it go by and listen to its soothing rushing water. It is mere steps away from the porch. I hate to add anything 'negative', but I must mention two things. First, the directions provided in the email specified 10.7 miles (pretty specific distance) once we turned onto 52, but it was only 6 miles before our next turn. We saw billboards for one of the orchards as soon as we were on 52 that said the orchard was 8 miles ahead, but our turn was well before that orchard. So that gave us a little hiccup getting there. Second, the driveway doesn't require a 4-wheel drive vehicle, but it would help. We were in a 2-wheel drive SUV and had a little trouble with traction (probably because of the fallen leaves) the first time leaving the cabin, but once we knew we needed a little run at the first incline we had no trouble getting in or out. We were told the driveway will be repaired soon, so this probably won't be an issue for long. I'm only including these two things to be helpful for future guests to have a perfect visit to Camp Cartecay. We loved it and will be back! Date of arrival - November 2, 2021

5 STAR It was even better than the pictures. Everything in the home was brand new, from the appliances to the beds. There was so much room for our family of 4. So much to do in the area and so nice just to be in the cabin. I would give it more than 5 stars if that was possible.
