Overview

Blue Ridge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

This cabin features great furnishings, wi-fi, open loft, two master bedrooms, with 30-foot ceilings in living room and fully-equipped kitchen, impeccable attention and detail in building, on six acres, backing onto 50 undeveloped acres, king-size Italian leather sleigh bed, solid surface countertops, gas cooking (rare for the area), and a travertine master shower.

Outside, you will find eight-foot decking on three sides, with large, very private hot tub, on the basement level, and, on the deck, rocking chairs, capturing a year-round mountain view. You also have a hammock at your disposal. As of December 26, 2014, you have at your disposal a Weber gas grill with side cooker.

You are minutes from horseback riding, hiking, bike trails, rafting, antique shops, and fishing. You are a five-minute walk to tranquil horse pastures. You will pass within half a mile of downtown Blue Ridge when going or coming from almost anywhere.

This cabin is a perfect, pet-friendly, romantic or family getaway.

Although the cabin sleeps seven, it only comfortably holds four adults. The first master, a loft, has a king size bed with a great view. The second master has a full-sized brass bed. The third bedroom is a full/twin bunk arrangement.

When inquiring about booking, please let me know if you are bringing pets (very welcome) and, if so, how many? That way your quote can be accurate with the nonrefundable $20 fee per furry friend.

About The Owner

I am an avid traveler, reader, Netflix fan, and lover of dogs. I rent this cabin because it would just seem like a waste for it to sit empty when I can't be there.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1995

Why The Owner chose Blue Ridge

Privacy and view from mater bedroom, those are what sold me. I'm also very happy with the two new window treatments outside and in front.

What makes this cabin unique

I adore the view from the upstairs master, and the dogs have room to roam without bothering anyone else. TVs have some of the latest gadgets, and I spend some relaxing time with them getting caught up on shows.

I love the large balcony and the privacy. I'm extremely content, driving home, watching the dogs absolutely exhausted from another adventure. The privacy, perhaps most of all.

Nice cabin

  • 3 of 5

The cabin itself was very nice. Comfortable beds and a nice view. DirecTV is a big plus for us. I really liked having a gas stove and the Weber grill (on a timer). It wasn't without missteps. No colander for pasta. We bought one and left it for the next person. I had to call their ISP twice; once because the router cables were improperly connected and another to reset everything because we couldn't get to the internet. The hot tub didn't work. The owner advises against using the upstairs shower. Lastly, be aware that you have to keep your trash inside or drive it to the transfer station yourself.

Owner's Response: I wanted to respond to the trash, the colander, the modem, and the hot tub. If you book my cabin, you are in a very isolated area. (I'm assuming that is why you booked my cabin, for the privacy.) With that remoteness, you lose some things you take for granted in the city, more particularly, trash. You can leave it upstairs. You can leave it in the basement. You can choose to take it to a convenient drop, but I never expect that. There is no other solution to that issue. If you leave trash outside, bears will come. I stocked the cabin with a colander. Another guest must have taken it. The cleaning crew does not check inventory to that extent, but if you see something missing that you expected, call, and we'll get it to you. Three weeks before this guest's arrival, I spent a week dealing with, and getting, a new modem. TDS, the wireless provider, set it up. It was working when I left. The guest that came between must have had some reason to change the wiring. I have again confirmed with cleaning that they must ensure that the modem is working properly during their cleaning. Also, for some reason, the modem required a re-set. That is modern technology at its finest. You sometimes must re-set. I have no control over that, but it is easily fixable, as this guest confirmed. Now, about the hot tub. I send guests a few pages of guidelines that tell you everything from how to get in, to where to schedule horse riding, to restaurant recommendations. Those guidelines also include a clear and firm directive not to set the temperature of the hot tub, for any reason, above 100 degrees. Apparently, this guest has been in hot tubs set hotter. THIS hot tub must never be set higher than 100 degrees. This guest had the temperature set at 102 degrees. If you do that with my hot tub, you run the risk of breaking the thermometer or, at a minimum, overloading the system. After this guest left, cleaning reset the hot tub to the right temperature range, and it heated up to 100 degrees.

Beautiful cabin!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was perfect! The cabin is very nice and cozy. The only thing we did not like was that the hot tub was on the ground level and in the pictures online it shows the view from the deck. I was informed that the hot tub was moved due to code but the view from the deck is gorgeous so it would have been much better to have the hot tub there. Over all we really enjoy our stay!

Owner's Response: I made sure to delete my photos of the hot tub on the deck, where I had it for many years. I went back on site today with a VRB0 rep, and we found no such photos. We also looked through the description and amenities and found no reference to a hot tub on the deck. I mention all of this to emphasize that I do everything possible to eliminate surprise when a guest arrives. As I'm thinking about it, she did book several months ago and may have seen it before the replacements. I spent many months making the decision to move the hot tub, but water was spilling over the sides and rotting the wood. For your safety, and for no other reason, I moved it down. The good news about that is that you have even more privacy. It is a bit rustic how you get to where the hot tub is. In exchange for the unfortunate need to move the hot tub, you now get that same view with stunning rockers and tables. Four matching rockers, two matching tables for you morning coffee. You also have access to a hammock to place wherever makes the most sense to you. A new gas grill completes the ensemble. I do welcome your inquiries and look forward to your stay.

Better than pictures!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a great weekend in this cabin. The pictures don't do it justice. The place is very well maintained and the beautiful wood interior made it feel very rustic, but still very modern. We loved it! The owner was great in having the cabin available even with short notice. The cabin has flat screen TVs and wifi so you won't be disconnected from the outside world...unless you choose to. My cell phone (T-mobile) couldn't get a signal, so I just used the wifi calling function on my phone and my phone worked perfectly. A previous reviewer mentioned the little Jack Russell, well he greeted us during our weekend stay. He's a very friendly dog that apparently like to say hi to visitors in the hopes of getting bacon. Overall it was a great trip and we are looking forward to returning!

good location

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a long weekend here. The cabin and views were very nice. There are some private homes around but the cabin feels very secluded. It was quiet and relaxing. Just a little outside of Blue Ridge however the majority of the road is paved and a fairly easy drive. The road to the cabin is gravel but not too steep. There was a review where someone complained about the landscaping but you're not going to have a lot of landscaping with most cabins. My only thought would be it could have used some weeding around the porch and the road below the cabin by the hot tub. The owner is very nice and accommodating. We took our dog and had an unexpected visitor from a neighborhood dog. Just a heads up if you rent the cabin and see a Jack Russell he belongs to one of the neighbors on the lane below through the woods.

A PERFECT FIRST GET-AWAY FOR OUR FAMILY--EVERYTHING WE EXPECTED AND MORE FOR OUR MOUNTAIN GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5

Our family comprises of 6 adults (3 married couples). This cabin was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the hot tub and the sound of the Whip-poor-will at night. The listing photos and description are accurate. We were very comfortable in every way. The cabin sits at the top of a small lane and the neighbors down the road are pretty much invisible. The yard around the cabin has some lovely plants, but given that we are talking the mountains, there isn't much flat grassy areas for lawn games. However, we discovered the community center off Highway 5 on the way to Blue Ridge--perfect for that sort of thing. It is well worth a trip to the visitor center in Blue Ridge to discover some of the local sites. The shops of Blue Ridge are charming. We enjoyed our meal at Harvest on Main and a cupcake from The Sweet Shop (owner won on Food Network's Cupcake Wars) and some local fudge. We strolled through the Farmer's Market and Brown's Feed and Seed. We did not take a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad, but hope to next year. We also visited Mercer Orchards and spent quite a bit of time browsing through the gift shop. We attended church at Crossover Community church and even shopped their community thrift store when we discovered none of us had packed a sweater! The people of the Blue Ridge community are kind and helpful. Since Atlanta is about an hour away, half our party took in a Brave's game, while the other half went whitewater rafting with Rolling Thunder River Company on the Ocoee River just over the border in Tennessee. The Ocoee Visitor Center is well worth the visit, with lovely woodland trails. It was a venue for the 1996 Summer Atlanta Olympic games.

Most evenings, we just enjoyed making dinner followed by board games. We found that the kitchen was stocked better than we expected (this was our first cabin rental). We were glad to have brought our own outdoor grill and indoor breakfast grill plate for pancakes (there may have been one, but we didn't see it). A new Wal-Mart just opened in Blue Ridge (about a half hour away), so anything that we needed was not far away.

The house was clean, the beds were made and having a washer and dryer made the stay even easier.

Communication with the owner before and after was easy and she did everything possible to make our stay pleasant. We very much appreciated the fact that she is dog friendly. We have already spoken with the owner about returning next year. We had a lovely time!
