Overview

Blue Ridge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 BR + Loft, 2 BA, Sleeps to 16 using detached unit

If you like trout fishing and family fun this is the place. A romantic escape, a wonderful fishing experience or just plain fun and relaxation. Fishermans Retreat, a beautiful, large 1700 square foot log cabin, offers outstanding trout fly fishing in your private, back yard with 320 feet of open easy access to the rocky, Toccoa River. This cabin is located waterfront on the lower Toccoa River where the trout fishing is the best you will find.

The large flat lawn is like a park area and allows children the freedom to romp, play on the tire swing or have a family softball, baseball, or football game. Relax on the river deck at Fishermans Retreat and roast marshmallows on the outdoor fireplace while you listen to the rippling waters of the Toccoa.

The 2 acre estate of Fishermans retreat is really a mini-farm with blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, muscadines, and garden vegetables to be picked when in season. Or you can relax in the riverside arbor swing and watch the fishermen haul them in.

Plenty of parking is provided in the flat, circular drive around the flower garden. The gated entry at the end of the private road provides security but not seclusion and is only 15 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. Past renters (with our former rental agent) all say that this is the best place they have ever stayed and it far exceeded their expectations. Book for a week; you will find that two or three days is not long enough!

About Jerry or Charlotte Taylor, owners

We are a retired couple and manage the rentals ourselves. You can be assured of a very clean and well appointed cabin. I was an aerospace engineer (Ga Tech grad) last working at Gulfstream Aerospace in Savannah, GA. This is my retirement job and I spend about 20 hours per week managing the rental program.

Jerry or Charlotte Taylor, owners purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Jerry or Charlotte Taylor, owners chose Blue Ridge

This location on the Toccoa river is recognized by local fishing guides as the best place for trout fishing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fisherman's Retreat has previously been managed by a local agent in Blue Ridge. This management is being terminated effective January 2006 and we will now manage our home rentals thru the Vacation Rentals By Owner program. Although we never had negative comments from our guests we felt that the exceptional service we require for our guests was not being provided. For example, providing top quality toilet tissue, soaps, shampoos, linens, etc. are a must for AAAAA accomodations. If we fail to provide what you think is required, please let us know. Previous guest comments have been entered by us for your verification of our accommodations.

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for a wonderful weekend getaway. Fisherman's Retreat offers a perfect romantic getaway or in our case a family outing. Our 7 year old caught a 2 lb trout right off the bank! In addition to fishing we enjoyed canoeing, riding bikes and playing baseball and we didn't even have to leave the house to do these things!!!!

I would recommend Fisherman's Retreat to anyone. Thank you again for a wonderful weekend. We are already planning our next trip.

Best Family Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed in this beautiful home in August of this year. Absolutely the best time we have ever had on vacation. Everything you need is provided and if you need anything the owners are more than happy to accommodate. Not only is the home beautiful but the grounds are perfect - flat yard right to the river. We are working on setting a date we can all head back in 2015! Can't wait. :)

ANOTHER WEEK OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Exceptional...outstanding...spectacular! Have I missed anything? Still the most relaxing cabin on the Toccoa river. The trees already in a color shift were breathtaking. You see when you're on the deck, which is literally right at the rivers edge, you're not looking at another cabin across the river. You're looking at the majestic fall colors of the Blue Ridge Mountains! Pictures don't do it justice nor will this review. You have to be there...you have to breath it....you have to feel it....you have to see it. Peace and quiet? You're at the very end of Blackberry Drive? That's it...nobody else...just you. No cars driving by...no people taking a walk by your cabin. Could any cabin be at a better location than this? NO! And the fishing? Not any different than it's ever been. PHENOMENAL!! Trust me I know. I was in Alsaka a month before. The old cliche still holds very true. " You get what you pay for." Rumor has it that next month they'll also have a video "from a birds eye view!" I can't wait to see it!

WOW!!!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for sharing your beautiful cabin. It exceeded all of our expectations. We started the week with three family members but eight others join us for the weekend. I think we utilized every amenity. We made smores over the fire pit, every night somebody was in the hot tub, we played horse shoes, the kids had ping pong tournaments every night after we went to bed, etc. We caught enough trout for dinner every night but did go to Blue Ridge for dinner once. The cabin and location were beautiful and the fishing was great. We have already booked another week in Sept. Can't wait to get back.

Owner's Response: Hi Joe, and thank you for your kind review and the entry you wrote in our cabin guest log. It is always a great pleasure for us to receive the unsolicited reviews by our past guests. Your comments are very typical of all our past guests who just can't believe that we offer so many extras in the rental of our cabin. For example, providing the starter firewood for the firepit is like a $25 gift (one just needs to check out the merchant's cost for 6-8 sticks of wood to confirm our freebie!). In season, we are providing a seasonal garden, blueberries and blackberries, muscadine grapes, games of horseshoes and ping pong, main cabin and detached unit ( for larger groups), both a gas grill and charcoal smoker and other extras. The guests just have to see to believe what we provide!

Thanks again Joe for your comments and we look forward to you return in Sept. You will be added to our list of satisfied guests who return repeatedly We are finding that our rental schedule is almost always filling up. Remember to book early for a preferred rental period.

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
Our ninth or tenth stay at this cabin. We've lost count. What can I say that I haven't said before. Simply excellent. Checked in on a rainy afternoon and couldn't wait to go to sleep to enjoy the rain hitting the roof. No ambien needed here!! Next day the rain stopped and we sat on the deck and did nothing but relax. We did make an effort to fish but the amount of runoff from all the rain stained the river a deep earth colored red. Was I disappointed? No, because I knew by the morning it would be perfect for fishing! Was I right? Of course! Three beautiful brown trout weighing in at almost four pounds each for the first two caught and three pounds for the third. That is a digital scale weight....not a guesstimate. The following day another beautiful brown just under two pounds. We decided to release the last fish because we wanted it to gain some more weight for our next excursion to the cabin. One smaller rainbow was also released. Overall experience was great as has been every trip we've made to this wonderful cabin. The owners as always provided us with another trip to be remembered. Close friends they've become over the years. Always responsive to our needs plus some! I think you'll find this cabin a wonderful experience. Its location on the river is the best to catch big fish. Always has been....always will be. That is why you'll see every guide boat stop in front of the deck and hold there to fish. If fishing isn't for you then bring your football, baseball, soccer ball, badminton set or whatever it is you enjoy doing outside with you because there's more than enough room to play with all of them. At the same time!! Don't bring any horse shoes...they're already outside. Maybe just a book.

Owner's Response: Gee Don, You are humbling us with all those glowing comments and your experiences at Fisherman's Retreat. We are so pleased that we can agree with your comments. Folks just need to see the place to know that everything you said is true. Will see you again in October!

Loved this place; very peaceful and LOTS of great fishing!

  • 5 of 5
We really loved this place from the time we set foot on the property, the owner Jerry came and greeted us. What a nice touch! We brought our two dogs with us and they had plenty of room to play outside. We brought a long 30' leash with us. The fishing was extremely good and the water was very high. You can hear the sound of the river from the porch. It's so peaceful and relaxing, you can even fall asleep on the bed on the screened back porch facing the river. The place had everything you would need and was very clean. A short drive into town (about 15 minutes) is a large supermarket. MacCaysville is a great place to visit and is about a 20 minute drive. The people are very friendly here and the place is situated at the end of a dead end road so it's very private. We've stayed in other cabins in North Georgia and this place we would definitely like to return to.

Merry Christmas, Jerry and Charlotte
