Description

Secluded, Private, Pond, Trails, Outdoor Fire Pit, Pet-Friendly - Epworth, GA

If you are ready for an authentic, nature adventure, then look no further. JME Retreat at the Cohutta Reserve is your place for fun and restoration in the outdoors!


This turn of the century, secluded, rustic farmhouse is nestled in a valley between 3 mountains near the Cohutta Wilderness Area. If cabins could talk, the years of history you would hear. The walls, with pioneering family names carved into them, is where you’ll find many of the tools used by this family still hanging.


This cabin, restored with the help of local craftsmen, retains much of the historic charm of natural wood beams throughout, original wide plank wooden floors, and a wood burning fireplace built 'the old way', with stacked stone and mud foundation. The modern kitchen features stainless steel appliances, gas range, microwave and a dining area that seats four. The master suite on the main floor, outfitted with early American antiques, has a custom queen bed with a full walk-in stone shower. Upstairs, in the open carpeted loft, is a queen bedroom with a view of the fireplace.


This sprawling 68-acre property features trails, streams, and waterfalls. The Cohutta wilderness hosts 87 miles of unusual remote hiking. For those who need a retreat from the fast pace of city life, to reconnect with loved ones in the peace and quiet of the 'holler', JME is waiting for you. For nature enthusiasts, history buffs, or any city dweller just wanting to get away from it all; to roam, to learn, to rest in total privacy; JME is calling for you.


Imagine waking in the morning, not to the sounds of an alarm going off, but to the gentle call of nature. To the songs of birds and the rustling of leaves dancing with the morning breeze. Nestle on the front porch with your favorite book or loved one, nothing to interrupt you, except the occasional deer or turkey crossing your field of vision. In the evening, gather by the firepit retelling (and exaggerating) the day’s adventures, making memories that will last a lifetime while listening to nature sing you to sleep with the frogs, crickets and katydids’ night time melodies.


This cabin is designed for nature lovers who enjoy unplugging and listening to the silence very few places offer. So, bring your fishing poles to enjoy the catch and release on your own private pond and dock. Don't forget your hiking boots, water and camera for the miles of trails you’ll get to explore. Or simply plan to come, sit, relax and reconnect in the serenity of this mountain oasis.


Please note: This modern, yet rustic cabin is more rural than most; thus, the increased chance encounters with mother nature during your stay. This should be no cause for alarm, but simply a heads up to be aware of your surroundings. Enjoy your stay!

Dog-Friendly Cabin:  This cabin welcomes your furry family members with open arms! Up to 2 dogs can enjoy the vacation alongside you, making for unforgettable memories. Our pet fee helps us maintain the comfort and cleanliness of our cabins for everyone to enjoy, and we are excited to welcome!

Please let our friendly agents know the number and types of dogs you're bringing when you book your stay to receive $50.00 off for each dog.

Please read our rental policy for our pet friendly homes, our dog friendly policy allows for up to (2) dogs in designated properties with a fee of $150.00 plus tax per dog. To ensure the comfort and safety of all our guests (including the furry ones), please inform us at the time of booking if you plan to bring your dogs. Keep in mind, some homes have size or weight restrictions, and for their safety, dogs should be crated when alone. While we may provide crates in certain properties, bringing your own is recommended. Always pick up after your pets to avoid additional fees, and rest assured, should any mishaps occur, we kindly ask for your cooperation in covering any damages. Bringing an unauthorized dog, or exceeding the limit without owner permission, incurs a $300.00 fine, plus potential extra cleaning fees up to $200.00 for non-designated homes.

Highly Recommend JME Retreat

by S Beck

I don't have much experience renting from Southern Comfort Cabin Rentals but I'd highly recommend the JME Retreat to anyone who craves solitude, natural beauty and wildlife viewing (or hunting). Pretty much spot on. The bathroom and kitchen were quite clean. The cupboards could use a detailed scouring. I did have to clean a lot of bird droppings from the porches. I also swept a lot of dead bugs/debris from the window sills. I expected as much from such a rustic cabin. I thought it was nearly perfect. I would absolutely consider renting this property again.

Very Remote & Rustic

by Matt Pietrzykowski

I give five starts because I loved it. Admittedly, this cabin is not for everyone. Very remote and as rustic as I would want to be. I would only recommend to people that would be interested in this type of adventure.

Can't Say Enough About This Cabin!

by April Hanchett

Can't say enough about this cabin. Loved the fact that is was so tucked back away from the road and civilization. The National Forest being abutted to the property made it so peaceful. We could get no cellphone service which was just what we were after. The rustic feel of the cabin and having to rely mainly on the fireplace for warmth was so perfect. We got away from all the complication and bitterness of life for a week there. To have changed anything about the cabin would have broken the serenity. My family and I were already missing JME Retreat as soon as we locked the gate on departure and would have loved to stay much longer.

We Always Rave About This Cabin To Friends And Family

by Stephanie McCarthy

We've always been pleased when renting from you.  We've stayed in this cabin three times and still love it just as much as our first time walking through the door. We always rave about this cabin to friends and family

Beautiful Retreat from everyday life. Perfect

by Brooke

Wow, just wow. When you think you can\'t find peace and quiet anywhere anymore, look no further. JME is a beautiful retreat, acres and acres of solitude. Private fishing pond, loads of room for our four legged friends to roam, even got to wake up to deer in the back pasture. Highlight of the evening is relaxing by the firepit and watching the stars. With the indoor wood burning fireplace and remarkable well kept cabin, romance and reminiscence is sure to spark. Can\'t wait to come back and watch the gorgeous colors of Spring and Autumn!!!

Absolutely Perfect In Every Way!

by Gena

Our stay at JME Cabin was perfect in every way. As soon as we drove up; I went back in time and was filled with joy. The cabin is extremely secluded and allows one to completely unplug from the outside world and become one with God. I loved reading the history book provided about the cabin. Knowing that a husband and wife raised 14 children in the cabin gave it so much more meaning, life, character, and warmth. I will definitely be going back next fall.

Quiet & Relaxing

by Lecia

Our stay at JME Retreat was just what we wanted...quiet and relaxing. We love that our dogs could come and swim and explore. It was nice to have family time with little distractions. Wish we could have stayed longer. Hope to return in the fall.

Perfect Place ~ Would Recommend To Anyone

by STEPHANIE

We would recommend this cabin to anyone. It met all of our needs and more. It's the perfect place to unwind on the front porch if you are wanting to relax, or if you're feeling more adventurous you can hike the trail. It was hard to leave.

Convenient & Remote! Perfect to Unplug

by Raymond

Rustic cabin with nice fireplace/fire pit area with view of property, ample roaming space, we saw deer each morning out the kitchen windows. We took our fishing gear and tried our luck in the pond, but only caught small fish. The setting is so nice and quiet, beautiful scenery. We made smores and cooked hot dogs one evening on the gas grill by the fire pit. The location is convenient to Blue Ridge but remote enough to unplug and stay "off the grid" if you like!
