About Greg Spencer

Proprietor Greg Spencer initially discovered the Blue Ridge area on a backpacking trip to the Cohutta Wilderness in the 1980’s. A short time later, enamored of the area, Greg embarked on a land purchasing mission that led him to 12 acres of undeveloped acreage.

Greg Spencer purchased this house in 2008

Why Greg Spencer chose Blue Ridge

Amazed by the beauty of the Toccoa River and the inspiring views of the surrounding mountains, Greg wasted no time in securing what is now known as the Toccoa House Properties.

During the 1990’s Greg built a small cabin, The Riverside Cabin, on the Toccoa River, and envisioned a larger house that he later built on the ridge above: The Toccoa House, completed in 2000. Next came The Carriage House in 2002, and the in-ground, seasonally heated swimming pool in 2007. Our newest addition, The Grey Heron House, was completed in late 2007.

Our pets and property mascots, Budrow and Bobby Jo (BJ is named for the Blue Ridge couple, Bobby and Jo, who gave him to us, thank you so much!!), may greet you if they happen to be on the property when you visit. While they often bark, what they really want is for you to pet them!

We lived on the the Toccoa House property for about five years (2003-2008) while building the later cabins and pool, but have recently built a new house on a 'very challenging lot' in Chamblee, Georgia, which we absolutely love (inside I-285 with a five acre wilderness behind our property...thank you Georgia Power and Dekalb County!!). Because of our intense commitment to achieve a superior level of guest satisfaction, we are often on the property, regularly inspecting, organizing, repairing, and maintaining the interior and exterior property ourselves. If you see us on the property strolling the grounds, or giving Budrow and Bobby Jo a walk about, feel free to say 'Hello' and let us know if there is anything we can do to accentuate your guest experience.

What makes this house unique

It is rare to have awesome views AND direct access to over 1000 feet of Toccoa River shoreline. Greg has also combined his 30+ years of experience as a builder and home inspector to create a custom home, with excruciating attention to detail. Every aspect is well above and beyond the typical north Georgia cabin rental.

Great house

  • 5 of 5
This grey heron house was perfect for our group. Dana did a great job ensuring all of our needs were met. The house was really clean and the layout perfect. The checkin and checkout process was a breeze. The setup down near the river, the hottub, and fire pit made this house perfect.

Fabulous time!!!

  • 5 of 5
We rented both the Grey Heron House and the Carriage house as well. We had a group of 14 the first night. It was such a great time!!! Cabins are close to Blue Ridge however it does take some time to find the place(first fork in the road is about 8/10 of a mile from the address given on Hogback road). The driveway to the Grey Heron house is somewhat steep and had to use the low gear to navigate back up.

My only issue was the labeling of the trails. In my opinion, the "easy walking trail" should be labeled easy hiking trail. There is no way if the grandmother of the group came that she could have done this trail. It's fine for the kids but really it isn't a trail I would let them do alone. My kids are 12 and 11 and I didn't feel comfortable letting them roam the property by themselves down to the river. But other than that it was a great time. Well kept property.

Blue Ridge Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This house was everything we hoped it would be. The house was fully furnished with everything that we needed including the firewood. We thoroughly enjoyed the views and the time we shared there. I am sure that we will look at staying here again on our next visit to Blue Ridge, GA.

We had a great time staying at the Grey Heron house the summer. The property was beautiful and there was so much to do. We have an active 3 yr old he loved it. We can't wait to go back!

Fabulous family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cabin for a family vacation--two grandparents, four children, three daughter in-laws, and four grandchildren. The cabin couldn't have been more perfect. Plenty of bedrooms and bunk beds. Lots of space to be together and lots of space to wander off by yourself. We loved the hot tub, the river, the rope swing, and the pool. The cabin is close to Blue Ridge, where we did the train ride and some touring around. Another highlight of the trip was rafting down the Ocoee River, about twenty minutes away. We will back!

Beautiful property and cabin

  • 5 of 5
Four families came together to stay at the Blue Heron Cabin at the Toccoa House Properties for one week this summer - 8 adults, 8 children, and 1 dog. There was plenty of room for all of us! The owner was quite accommodating with any questions and requests that we had in advance and during our stay. The cabin was in excellent condition, very clean and well stocked. The extended property, river side area and pool are all beautiful. The location is private and yet so convenient to Blue Ridge. I highly recommend this site for large families or groups wanting to explore the north Georgia mountains!
