About Laura Lewis
Hello there! Thank you for checking out our cabin for your getaway! We are Greg and Laura Lewis and we've been married for 41 years. We were high school sweethearts and were born and raised in Pensacola and Milton, Florida respectively! We have 4 grown sons, 3 daughters/in law and 3 grandsons/4 granddaughters! We owned and managed a general contracting company in NW Florida for 20 years before deciding to slow it down a notch and just maintain our rental properties in Florida for our living. We made our first ever visit to this area though in 2012 and fell head over heels in love! As the local saying goes "We weren't born here but got here just as fast as we could!" We've put a lot of family time and love into this cabin, building some of the furniture and doing all of the remodeling ourselves! Our other cabin on Hemptown Creek in the valley below this cabin (VRBO #958518) has been more successful than we could have ever imagined, too! We love to have family get-togethers here in the off-season and enjoy all of the activities this area offers. We love the friendly neighbors and residents of this area and have made many close friends here! We hope you enjoy all of our efforts here to make your cabin getaway a memorable one!
Laura Lewis purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Laura Lewis chose Morganton
Our cabin is situated on a mountain ridge in pure paradise adjoining the Chattahoochee National Forest which is full of mountain wildlife such as deer, owls, bears and many birds! You will not see any neighbors around you! Lots and lots of peace and privacy! Such a great place to restore your soul! We love the wrap around porches and covered patio with enormous panoramic mountain views!
What makes this Cabin unique
Most of the driveway to cabin is concrete paved. Large concrete paved parking area around the cabin. Enough room for 4-6 cars or trucks. No unsafe high drop offs. It's so important to have a safe access to a mountain cabin. Wonderful place for a family vacation! We've attempted to make it safe for children with a safety gate at the top of the stairs! Your family will absolutely love swinging on one of four swings on the complete wrap around porch gazing at the panoramic mountain view! There's a 10' picnic table we built near the grill on the wrap around porch for seating a large group of guests!

Lovely cabin, complete with everything you need
The cabin is beautiful, just as presented in the photos. It's located in a quiet neighborhood, up a hill that's paved as you ascend in your car. No need for fear here! And it was wonderful to wake up, shower, and jump in the hot tub on the deck. Luxuriating in the hot tub while viewing neighboring mountains was a treat that will stay with me this winter.
We all had a wonderful time and look forward to next time!!
Everything was great from the large kitchen to the game room and pool table, we had a really good time there
Perfect mountain cabin!
Fantastic experience in Laura’s cabin! Went with my boyfriend for a romantic getaway and we both loved it, and - funny enough - at different points during our stay commented on how wonderful the cabin would be for us to bring our kids to this cabin too! There’s an awesome bunk room with a fab hangout space, the pool table, hot tub, fire pit, etc. Will def return!
Amazing Family Getaway
We had the best time in this beautiful cabin with breathtaking views!!! We spent time hiking, visiting downtown Blue Ridge, and just spending time at the cabin. Every afternoon and evening we built a fire and spent time in the hot tub!! The views were absolutely stunning! It was very secluded and private which we loved! We had a blast playing pool and just lounging to watch TV on the big screen! Everything about this cabin was amazing and I’m so glad we found this little gem! We will definitely be back!
Perfect perfect perfect!!!
There are not words to accurately describe how perfect every single part of our stay was at this property. From beginning to end, Laura was easily accessible and most accommodating!
The cabin is absolutely gorgeous. The entire place is tastefully decorated with gorgeous mountain furniture. The kitchen is absolutely 100% FULLY stocked. The owner even left us some dishwasher pods and a sponge (she thought of everything).
Morning views are breathtaking! We couldn’t wait to get up every morning and walk outside to watch the deer move through the woods with the sunrise. The hot tub is also positioned perfectly on the deck to take in all the beautiful scenery! I could go on and on...this cabin was just perfect.
During our stay, we visited Brasstown Bald (thanks to Laura’s recommendation). It was amazing!!! The next day we hiked to Sea Creek Falls then drove to the Toccoa trout hatchery. The last day we decided to be adventurous and we drove to Deep Gap parking lot just outside of Franklin, NC (little over an hour drive). We hiked from Deep Gap to Standing Indian Mountain and it was the most breathtaking view we have ever seen. The hike was strenuous but not too long (5 miles roundtrip) and totally worth it.
It was the perfect mountain vacation!!! Thank you Laura and family for this beautiful cabin!!
P.S. We traveled with a 9 month old baby and this cabin had a pack-n-play and a high chair. It even had an actual full size crib downstairs! (We did not end up using it because we stayed upstairs but she has literally thought of everything!)
Thank you Kelli for describing perfectly and in detail the amenities our cabin offers that you appreciated! We are happy to hear that they made your stay enjoyable and memorable! We also enjoy getting up early and viewing the sunrises and watching the deer move up the mountain! Please return as our guests anytime!
Sincerely, Greg and Laura Lewis
The Lewis family's Georgia Sunrise cabin is located in the town of Morganton which was the Fannin county seat years ago. Our cabin is only about 10 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge on Old 76 which is a beautiful scenic drive through the mountains! Our family enjoys these backroad scenic drives in the area and shopping in the many shops in downtown Blue Ridge. The scenic train in Blue Ridge is a MUST when visiting the area. Lake Blue Ridge is less than 10 minutes away with many water activities. You can rent pontoon boats, jet skies or just sun bathe on the beautiful white sandy beach! There's also many fishing and hiking oppurtunities. Numerous swinging bridges and waterfalls in the area, too. The Fannin County website is a great guide also when visiting the area! It keeps you up to date on what's happening locally.
