Tucked into a private, 15-acre valley with creekside trails and an open grassy field, this home is the perfect mountain getaway.

Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Full Bed | Loft: 2 Queen Beds | Open Second Level Living Area: Twin-over-Twin Bunk Bed, Twin Trundle
Built by hand from the reclaimed and refurbished timbers of 19th century Atlanta Warehouses and factories, ‘7 Timbers’ is truly a one-of-a-kind rustic masterpiece. Upon arrival, you’ll fall in love with the serene 15 acres of woodlands and grassland surrounding the barn-style home.
The barn theme continues inside of the home, with its wide, thick floor planking, robust post and beam architecture and vintage decor. From the exposed stained concrete floor of the ground level and the massive timber posts and beams, to the rustic tin roofs and smoke stack, ‘7 Timbers’ was designed and built for travelers seeking a unique, fun mountain getaway.
The large, open ground floor space feels like a cantina or rustic hotel lobby with its large open kitchen area designed to serve many while acting as an extension of the wide open lounging area for informal meals or casual entertainment space.
Adjacent to the stairs leading up to the second floor lies a quiet reading space that offers repose, an antique curio cabinet and a cable TV.
The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and has 2 refrigerators, 2 ovens, a gas range, 2 dishwashers, coffee maker, toaster, microwave and full stock of kitchenware, utensils, dishware and silverware.
Adding to the uniqueness of the wide-open ground floor space which combines the living area and kitchen, a large overhead garage-like door on one wall can be rolled open to an outdoor covered patio with seating and bench, along with a large sliding screen door to keep bugs out, but cool mountain air in. The patio space is truly perfect for entertaining or extending the living room out into the mountain air.
Along with the covered patio with the roll-up door, ‘7 Timbers’ offers an additional large outdoor wooden deck off of the dining area and kitchen. This large deck features a beautiful view into the mountain woodlands and features a gas grill, along with a table and chairs. Another outdoor space is available on the covered second floor veranda, which overlooks the beautiful woodland vista.
Both kids and parents will delight in the upstairs loft and ‘Ships Tower.’ A ship’s ladder leads to the loft from the second floor, and a small wooden gate protects the opening into the loft at the top of the ladder. In the loft, you’ll find 2 separate sleeping quarters, each with queen-sized beds and night stands. Although the head room in the loft area is low, it offers enough clearance for adults to access the sleeping quarters, but with limited headroom.
Across a catwalk spanning the second floor below is the nautical ‘Ships Tower,’ which offers an imaginative recreation of old-fashioned ships bridge with ships wheel and offers great views from the top of the cabin.
Additional sleeping accommodations include 2 bedrooms with queen-sized beds, one with a full-sized bed, and an open area with a twin-over-twin bunk bed and twin trundle.
One of the most interesting aspects of ‘7 Timbers’ is its natural climate control system. There is no central heating or air conditioning at the cabin, because it is heated by a wood-burning stove (firewood provided with an additional fee from October thru April), adding to the classic cozy cabin-factor.
In addition to the cast iron wood-burning stove, gas wall heaters and electric floor heaters warm rooms and bathrooms and other parts of the cabin for quick heating when required.
To further help control temperature, the home is cooled from ambient thermal flow from the earth. The beautiful, massive, stained concrete slab on the ground level absorbs the soil’s ground temperature and radiates it into the cabin. The massive beams and materials making up the skin of the cabin greatly insulate the inside air to keep it a comfortable +/- 75 degree ambient temperature.
Additionally, the cabin is cooled by a large portable air conditioner on the ground floor, 5 ceiling fans on the main level and window air-conditioning units in each of the 3 private bedrooms. To keep upstairs levels cooler, there is a screened loft skylight window, which can be opened and used as a vent in combination with the third floor loft fans to draw the cooler main level air up into the loft area.
Finally, one of the most remarkable aspects of ‘7 Timbers’ is the 15 acres of lush woodlands that it sits on. Look forward to good times gathered around the fire pit surrounded by wooden camp chairs and a huge custom picnic table. Relax beside the beautiful creek that runs alongside the property and merges into the larger Talking Rock Creek. Hike along the trails that run beside the creeks that eventually lead to a series of beautiful cascading rocky waterfalls and even to the ruins of a historic river grist mill off of the property, presumably from the 1800's. Also above the cabin is a large level playing field, where kids can play outdoor games!
