Experience the old West in the North Georgia USA mountains. One bedroom one bath guest suite with private entrance to entire first floor of a cabin nestled in the woods. Most rustic peaceful setting you can imagine. Sleeps 4, antique Western decor, mountain/pond/pasture views, hot tub, pool table, 2 fireplaces, slipper tub, fire pit, etc! If your group is larger than 4 people or you want even more privacy or separate bedrooms, look at the owner's other property, The Bunkhouse at Damascus Ranch!!
The Bunkhouse Annex & Jail is located in a peaceful rustic setting near the Cohutta Wilderness Area in the Chattahoochee National Forest. It has spectacular views of mountains, a pond, pastures and animals including horses, deer, squirrels, foxes, birds, etc, etc, etc.
To get there, enter Damascus Ranch by turning from Damascus Road onto Damascus Trail. Drive by a 14-stall stable with horses owned by local riders. Don’t forget to enjoy the breathtaking 15-mile view of the mountains in the Nantahala National Forest seen over the stable’s roof!
Continue past the original ranch mansion and up the hill. Drive by the Bunkhouse at Damascus Ranch, #250 Damascus Trail, to the last house on the road, #270. Park in the designated spot for Bunkhouse Annex & Jail guests, tie your Mustang or whatever you drove to the hitching rail, and walk down the gravel path and steps to your western-style temporary home. Take off your boots at the front door, and walk into the old West…with modern conveniences such as a kitchenette with state-of-the-appliances...oh, BYO dishwasher!!
After you have toured your quarters and settled in, rock or swing a spell outside. Gaze at the mountains in the distance...two miles to be exact. Note the woods, pond and pastures in your four-acre backyard. Watch the horses…if they are grazing in the fenced field. Listen for them to whinny, snort and tear the grass. You might also hear cattle from way off and the wind whistling through the trees. If you have a hankering, do all this while soaking in the inviting and soothing hot tub!
OR take a jaunt to the cypress swings in the pasture. Look at Damascus Peak while enjoying the sway of the swings and the fresh mountain air! Watch for Woody! If you fall asleep, that noisy critter will wake you.
OR beat your buddy at pool. Legend has it that one of the sticks is lucky. You have to try them all to find out which one!!
OR take off to enjoy any of the other activities that North GA offers.
At sunset, start a campfire in the fire pit with the free wood provided. Rest your weary bones on one of the large rocks. Cook your grub with our patent-pending skewers while reliving your day and planning tomorrow. Food just tastes better outdoors, especially when cooked over an open fire or on the porch grill, and then shared around the picnic table.
If you’re an early riser, glance out the windows to catch deer resting or grazing in the field. Or, if you go outside, you might hear the neighbor’s pesky rooster crow, and best of all…enjoy the tranquility of otherwise complete silence!
While here, try turning off your new-fangled electronics. Relaaaax! But if you start to shake, we have free Wi-Fi high-speed internet, a flat-screen TV with cable, a DVD player, and we get good cell phone reception…for ET.
Smoking, pets, fireworks and shooting are not allowed. Instead the Bunkhouse Annex & Jail offers quiet fresh air enjoyed by the wildlife and guests!
So come’on all you city slickers! Go West young…partner! Enjoy a taste of the Old West at the Bunkhouse Annex & Jail!!

Other things to note
Sorry, but no smoking, no illegal drugs, no pets, no fireworks, no shooting. Just good clean quiet restful air enjoyed by the wildlife and my guests!!
The Bunkhouse Annex & Jail is a one bedroom one bath guest suite with a private entrance to the entire first floor of a cabin nestled in the woods. The second floor of the cabin is not accessible to guests and may be occupied by the owner during their stay. The two levels are separated by insulated 18 inch trusses, minimizing any sound from each floor. Also the Bunkhouse Annex & Jail is not visible from the second floor, and has a separate heating and AC unit. Guest privacy is important. The owner is always available by phone, if needed, otherwise, will not interfere with the guest's enjoyment of the Bunkhouse Annex & Jail. Please read the great reviews!!

I love to share the paradise I've found in the North Georgia mountains!! The Bunkhouse at Damascus Ranch has the most unique bunk beds east of the Mississippi River, a western decor, a very rustic peaceful setting, and absolutely awesome views. You'll love it as much as the wildlife and I do!!
