The moment I drove away from Respite Cabin, I was already planning my return trip. This is my 3rd visit to Big Canoe–GA’s best little secret–and I think I found my forever spot. A quiet, private lane leads to the cabin, bringing even more peace to the wooded retreat. Then there is the PORCH, where I could have spent all my time! We had some rain during our Labor Day weekend, and the tin roof porch made the drippy weather a wonderful addition rather than a hindrance to our plans! Our group of adults and kiddos naturally divided each day, with kids playing indoors and adults retiring to enjoy drinks on the porch, I think the architect magically devised this in the plans somehow! The open A-frame floor plan allowed our gang to cook amazing meals together, spread out, enjoy the wooded surroundings, even listen to some fun LPs on the record player. LOVE. THIS. CABIN. It is at once home and mountain vacation and porch swing paradise. Is it time to go back for another Respite?
