Thank you for providing our little family with a peaceful, relaxing and much needed break. Our daughter attended a summer camp in the area. Even though we live very close by, it was so nice to “escape” our daily routine and also celebrate my husband and mines 31rst wedding anniversary! Everything about the cabin and grounds were fabulous. Would definitely recommend your place to anyone. Anna & Randy Campbell

Hidden Gem

This place is peaceful, scenic, quiet, comfortable, affordable, and fun. After a day of rafting or zip lining, my family loves winding down in the quiet valley. It’s the perfect peaceful getaway.

Mountains and Waterfalls

We loved this property! The surrounding mts, lakes, ponds, fields and waterfalls were perfect. The cabin is nice and well appointed. Really a peaceful, beautiful spot. We loved the location and pretty much everything - esp the private waterfall. The one thing I would suggest is to make contact with the location contact a few hours prior to designated arrival. We didn't get directions from airbnb and Google maps were way off. I would just suggest to contact the arrivals a few hours before their check-in to make sure they have everything - directions, code, etc. I don't know - maybe I'm the only one with this issue. Thanks for a great visit! -Micah Goodman

Chill, relax, and enjoy the fresh air, quietness, and sounds of creek and waterfall in distance. What a nice getaway! Going downtown Main Street brings you to great shops and nice cold beer outdoors. Cottage clean and cozy! Thanks for a great getaway!

Nice cottage

I had a very nice stay at 4-Bear Cave. The cozy cabin was very clean, the beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed. I was only able to stay for one night but I would like to stay longer on our next visit to Hambidge which is just across the street. Thank you!

Quick Night Getaway

This was the perfect end to our Waterfall Crall! We enjoyed visiting a couple of waterfalls on our way from Canton up to Rabun County. It was by far the best cabin we have stayed in. It was small and the perfect cozy getaway from our busy lives. The views are incredible and watching the sun set behind the mountains is beautiful! We will be back for sure!

Highly Recommend :)

Spontaneity at its best.... Early Saturday morning my husband asked if we'd like to ride up to the mountains for the day. Within an hour, we were packed and headed up 441 with no set destination in mind - we just drove :) We ended up at Tallahua Gorge/Falls. Valley Springs Lodging was a very last minute decision to stay over night. It was amazing!! We had the whole lodge area to ourselves. It was a rather cold weekend & ice/snow was expected for the area on Sunday/Monday but we stayed anyway. We had a wonderful time. The lodge was very well kept and clean. The grounds was beautiful. The waterfall was absolutely breath taking. Just the calm peacefulness of the area, the wildlife (deer & 3 beautiful Turkey), and view was exactly what we needed. We will be returning ...but next time without our child :) Thank you Mrs. Patty for all your help!! The Harper's Madison, GA

Exceeded expectations!

We found the cabin to be quite comfortable and extremely clean. Everything matched the descriptions and pictures. Upon arrival we found a helpful guide book on the dining table with clear instructions about everything from the TV in the cabin, the BBQ grill outside, to the location of sports equipment in outdoor boxes in various locations. Best of all, the property itself is gorgeous, with a beautiful natural waterfall and multiple rock fountains setup along a creek which runs throughout. The only minor issue we experienced was that the WiFi was spotty, which did not affect us much since we were there to get away from work and unplug for a while. The location was a perfect nature get-away for us, near many wonderful hiking trails, waterfalls and forested reserves. Highly recommended!

Great getaway cabin

This is our third time staying at Valley Springs Cabins. We love the setting it is beautiful and very peaceful. The cabin is the perfect size and is well equipped, we always find everything we need. This year they had new flat screen TV's, we did not watch it much since we were out hiking and such. Love staying here.

Enjoyed our stay

Our family stayed in one of the cabins last week and over the weekend. We found the cabin to be very clean, the bathrooms very clean and well maintained. In addition we left all of our paperwork at home and the office staff emailed us everything we needed while on the road. I would highly recommend this property!

The cabins are very clean, roomy and have all the amenities of home. Being able to cook breakfast in and go out for dinner was fabulous. The view was breath taking. The staff that I worked with were wonderful, polite and oh so helpful. Next year I will come later in the season as some of the shops were closed and it did nothing but rain the entire week-end. I will definitely stay at Bear Cave again.

Lovely Retreat

We reveled in the quiet of this property. Not a hustling, busy place, but a nice oasis of nature noises and peace. The waterfalls and creek offered endless entertainment for our toddler. A bucket, a beach scoop and rake were all she needed for hours. About an hour from the tubing that we wanted at Deep Creek, not a bad drive. Cabin was just enough convenience and comfort without costing too much or bringing too much modern to the atmosphere. View from porch was amazing to wake to.

Prettiest Mountain Retreat in North Georgia

This visit will be my 5th to Valley Springs, and my 4th in Bear Cave Cabin. As usual, everything was clean as a whistle, with everything needed for a relaxing stay. I can't think of any place in Georgia that has the combination of beautiful high mountains, mountain lakes, multiple waterfalls, and peaceful solitude. And the landscaping is so lovely and well-kept, thanks to Eddie, the wonderful manager. We're already planning for our next trip! Linda Hodges Marietta, GA

Garrison reservation Oct 11-13, 2013

I will do this one review for both cottages that were in my reservation. The weekend stay at Valley Springs was enchanting and memorable. Everything was perfect beginning with our reservation process. The cottages were delightful and cozy. Eddie was fabulous! It exceeded all of our expectations. We will return and we will recommend to others too. Thank you very much for the gracious hospitality and excellent service. Marie Garrison

We had a great time!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in 4 bear cave. The porch looking over the pond was amazing. The kitchen offered exactly what we needed. The only thing that I would dare to change would be the bed in one room. We are small people and we still found it tough to sleep in the size beds that are there. Other than this small detail, all was wonderful and we are very likely to come back again. I will also recommend this spot to anyone who asks for a mountain.

Loved our time at Valley Springs!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Valley Springs Lodging.The grounds are beautiful and beautifully kept.Everyone we dealt with was helpful,friendly,welcoming. We rocked on the front porch enjoying the view of mountains and the pond, listening to the sounds of the creek, waterfall, & birds. We walked along the creek, to the ponds, in the woods, and, of course, to the waterfall.Our cabin was clean, cozy, and comfortable.We had a relaxing, refreshing weekend and hope to come again soon. Thanks to all at Valley Springs for providing this little bit of heaven.
