About Us

A Modern Home In the Heart of Big Canoe

Tech Escape is a completely private hill-top home on 1.5 acres in Audubon Ridge in Big Canoe. It is centrally located to major amenities, just minutes away from playgrounds, the Marina, the Clubhouse, wellness center, and the swim club. The home is fitted with smart thermostats, wireless phone chargers, Level 2 EV charger, 4 smart TVs, Netflix, DVD player, mobile access for the front door, rocking chairs, bbq grill and more. The home is full of open spaces, entertainment areas, relaxation corners, open airy bedrooms, and a kitchen stocked by a passionate cook. It offers the seclusion of a home in the mountains while being incredibly close to the best Big Canoe has to offer.

I’ve become quite the fan of nature. Whether hiking or traveling, I really do enjoy seeing all of the wonders of the world. I’m a seasoned technology professional who has dedicated her life to helping the people who have made their work the improvement of life for all. I’m also a passionate cook. I’ve created a vacation space that feeds my love of nature, provides a kitchen anyone can create in and is also a perfect remote workspace. As a fellow traveler, I’m committed to making your experiences the way I would want them to be for me.

The Cabin was perfect and everyone had plenty of space. Additionally, the kitchen was well stocked, everything was clean, and the outdoor spaces were peaceful. The owner was always available if there were any questions. 5 stars - Sept. 2023

Valorie C.

Wonderful property- Kay has thought of everything to make sure you have what you need for your stay. Spacious and comfortable home - highly recommend! - July 2023

Brian M.

This was our second stay at Tech Escape. We have been coming to Big Canoe for years and really appreciate the location, floor plan and extras in the Tech Escape cabin. The immaculate kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, bakeware, serving ware and spices. There are two large tables to eat your meals. The dual-master configuration is great for couples or two families to stay in the same house and our daughter loves the bunk beds. We will happily stay here again! The communication from the owner is phenomenal, even alerting us to a road closure/car accident within the gates of Big Canoe. 5+ stars all around!!! - June 2023

Maria T.

Staying here brought back so many memories of our kids growing up visiting my parents here - the house was so comfortable, fashionable and clean! The hosts were on top of it the whole time. So accommodating!! Thank you!! - May 2023

Mrs. Ryan U.

Great experience from start to finish. Kat was wonderful. They have a lovely clean home and her personal touches showed. - Feb 2023

Heather C.

The house was beautiful. The owner was super responsive and helpful. We had a great time. - July 2022

Tammy M.

The property was great and communication with the owner was immediate and informative. The house was super clean! The kitchen was well appointed, and the snack basket was appreciated after a long day of traveling. I also truly appreciated the new, fluffy towels. 🙂 The driveway as steep but not as steep as others in this area. Plus, there’s plenty of flat parking just outside the front door so that it’s easy to load and unload your vehicle. I also appreciated the wireless phone chargers and screened-in porch. Overall, a great stay. Thank you! - Nov 2022

Owners thought of everything

We have stayed at various homes in Big Canoe throughout the last few years. However, Tech Escape far exceeded our expectations! Owner communication was fast and friendly. Every detail was thought of, and every supply was provided. It’s truly the little things that make a getaway relaxing: baggies, salt, pepper, spices, every cooking tool, beach towels and especially the cookies in the cookie jar! We didn’t have to make any special trips, which was wonderful. The home itself was very clean, cozy and perfectly furnished. The office was a special bonus, too. We loved having coffee and playing Connect Four with our kids on the enclosed porch. The home felt like a treehouse in the woods, and we loved it! Thanks for everything! - July 2022

Missy R.

We had a wonderful stay at Tech Escape in Big Canoe. Our host was incredibly quick with communication and she thought of everything. We loved all the little touches likes the extremely comfortable comforters, the bathroom toiletries, and the snacks in the kitchen for us. Thank you for sharing your home with us! - February 2022

Jennifer D.

This is a lovely home in the woods. We saw deer every day. Communication with the property owner was terrific. We were concerned about steep roads but were able to get our minivan up the steep driveway. The family room is warm and inviting with a knotty pine wood ceiling. We loved the feel of the room, and it was a great place to relax and unwind. The office functioned perfectly for my husband who needed to do some work. We loved seeing all the stars at night from the deck. - Feb 2022

Dora W.

This has been my favorite property that I have rented. The house had all the extras of staying in a house, with the conveniences you would expect from a nice hotel. The kitchen is well stocked and we cooked several meals from scratch with all the supplies needed to do so. The bedrooms and bathrooms had lots of extra towels and linens, which made everything convenient and comfortable. Communication with the owner was prompt.The home itself is beautiful and is built into a hill. I liked that it sat way off the road. We loved all the porch space. I highly recommend! - June 2022

Lisa O.
