Experience the real Georgia in this clean and comfortable cabin. Built in 1870, it offers a full kitchen, large living and dining area, front and side porches, one bedroom with a double bed, and a fold-out couch in the living room.

The space

You can spend time reading in front of the working fireplace in the book-lined living room, canoeing on the river that's a 2-minute walk away, or just relaxing on the wide front porch.

This is a perfect place for a family, couple, or individual that wants a beautiful, natural setting that is also close to the shops and sights in Athens.

There aren't many places left like the High Shoals cabin. Come and see why people say it's a true Georgia gem.

Guest access

The cabin is located in the small community of High Shoals, GA, just a 20-minute drive from downtown Athens. Guests have access not only to the river and cookout facilities at the nearby pond, but also to laundry facilities at the historic Portico, a former Baptist church that now serves as an event facility.

Interaction with guests

The owner of the cabin lives nearby, and will be happy to assist with activity planning or to answer any questions you have during your stay.

The cabin was a perfect getaway to celebrate by beloved's birthday. Lee greeted us at the home and showed us around. We loved walking on the property and sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch drinking our morning coffee. Our weekend activities were in Athens and it is a short, beautiful drive to town.

We stayed three days at the cabin and had a great time. The cabin was in a good location to travel to Athens and Duluth and not far from Atlanta. The cabin itself was clean and comfy. I also loved all the little touches especially the postcard available to take. We didn’t get a chance to explore the grounds but a map is provided and the area seems nice. Lee and Amy were easy to communicate with and overall great host.

The Portico cabin is a must-stay! The cabin is charming and authentically decorated to reflect a simpler time yet is well-appointed to make a stay comfortable. The days pass deliciously slow here, and there's plenty to see and do on the property- fishing, kayaking, nature walking! We truly enjoyed our time here and the warm hosts, Lee& Amy.

The Portico Cabin is a gem in so many ways. We just loved everything about it. Lee was generous with his time introducing us to the cabin and surrounds. The cabin is neat clean and full of charm and character and a wonderful book collection! It was quiet, peaceful and a lovely space for walking. We are very grateful to have found it.
