Idyll is scenic majesty at its best; an unforgettable setting, in Rabun Gap. A heavy timber barn, an attached covered outdoor pavilion with a warm stone fireplace, garden fire pit, serene pond, and much more on thirty-two verdant rolling acres. The tranquil secluded valley floor surrounded by expansive mountain views and briskly flowing creeks combine to create a sense of profound serenity.
Idyll (pronounced l/ˈīdl/) is a short poem, descriptive of rustic life and also means a perfect time, a moment of bliss, honeymoon, paradise, heaven on earth, all befitting this exceptional experience.
The barn was built at the "turn of the century"... the 21st one that is! The Pavilion provides an attached covered outdoor space where the dramatic views can be pleasantly enjoyed. Fastidiously appointed private washrooms, one with a shower and primping space, and a well outfitted prep kitchen.
The lush and fascinatingly furnished loft, overlooking the barn main floor, provides respite from the festivities, a place to relax and enjoy the surroundings in a cozy and comfortable barn.
