We stayed in the cabin at the B&B and had a fantastic time. The cabin itself was a little tight (Queen beds only) but was removed from the main B&B so was perfectly secluded. The gas fireplace was the main source of warmth for the lower floor (3 beds total - 1 downstairs in the living room, 2 upstairs, one of which couldn't be made private) and kept the living/bedroom cozy but the bath & kitchen were a little chilly. The bathrooms were very small with a full downstairs (shower only) and half upstairs. The hammock outside was perfect - my husband & I took an afternoon nap with a blanket and it was wonderful. The owners Dave & Mariah were fabulous - very helpful regarding attractions and so very friendly. They were definitely one of the highlights of trip - funny, warm, and inviting. The happy hour on Saturday was nice - large array of wines and some homemade delicious cheese dip and fresh grapes. We had fun chatting with the other guests as well - during the happy hour & at breakfast. Breakfast was very good both days (frittata one day, baked pancake with berries the next) with a wide array of teas, coffee, and juice as well. The cabin would be great for a family with kids (the upstairs was like a 'loft') but not for multiple couples. We will probably be back with our two kids during a summer for some fun on the lake and hiking. Hiawassee itself was nice, though we were disappointed to find we couldn't have wine/beer with our dinner at the Chophouse on Sunday due to local restrictions - keep an eye on the alcohol laws up there!
