If your idea of the perfect mountain vacation includes sitting in a rocking chair and looking at a spectacular mountain view, then Blackberry Knoll is the place for you. The sunrises are gorgeous as the sun rises in the wide open sky over the Blue Ridge Mountains. The stars are also beautiful in the clear mountain sky and the moon often shines in a fashion that is picture postcard perfect.
When you are ready for action though, there are plenty of activities to do. In McCaysville which was the site of the 1996 Olympic kayaking events, you can go rafting, tubing or kayaking in the Toccoa and Ocoee rivers. There are also plenty of trails and waterfalls to explore at in the Parks. You can also go fishing or boating in Lake Blue Ridge or one of the many rivers and streams around. If horseback riding is of interest to you, that is nearby also. Many folks also enjoy taking a train ride through the mountains on the Blue Ridge scenic railway.
When you are done outdoors, there is plenty of shopping and dining in the nearby towns of Blue Ridge, McCaysville, Ellijay, Jasper and Cherry Log. There you can find antiques, rustic furniture, clothing, crafts and many other things. There are also several orchards and many restaurants that are worth checking out.
Also---if you are on Facebook, you can go to the FB search engine and search Blackberry Knoll and you will see many more pictures!

The greatest place to stay!!! Sunrise from the front deck. Mountains everywhere and the sweet sound of peace all around. Our family had such an incredible time! So much to do and even if you need to drive a little ways it is worth it! Our 3 yr old loved it so much she was sad we had to leave. 100% recommend staying here!!!! We look forward to returning, next time will be around the fall season to see the leaves change color!
Hello fellow travelers! I am glad that you have taken a few moments to look into renting my cabin. The mountains is one of my favorite places to visit. I love sitting on our cabin front porch and gazing over the mountains early in the morning with a good cup of coffee and enjoying all that God has created for us to enjoy. Over the years God has allowed me to travel to many places all over the world doing mission work. I own a plumbing and septic business and recently finished seminary with degree in Theological Studies. My hope is that this cabin be used to grow family and friends closer together and provide relaxation and refreshment from the cares and concerns of this life. We look forward to hearing from you! Have a fantastic vacation! ~Chris Batchelor
We chose to buy a vacation rental in this location as the splendor of the mountains is a peace that has always brought us a sense of rest and appreciation for beauty. No matter the season, we find the mountains to be incredible year round.
Our cabin has a stunning year round mountain view that is difficult to find. Our location is easy to find just off of Hwy 5 between Blue Ridge and McCaysville. There are many activities to do with in minutes from our cabin.
This cabin is our favorite place to sit on the porch, coffee in hand and bask in the beauty right in front of us. Regardless of the season, the mountain view is always beautiful. We also love to browse in the antique shops, and eat in the local restaurants. We also enjoy a lazy tube ride down the Toccoa river on a hot summer day as well as exploring the many beautiful waterfalls and hiking trails in the area. You can also find horseback riding and fishing nearby.
Scenic Railway to ride through the mountains, Lake Blue Ridge, Toccoa River, Amicalola Fall's, Firewire Zip lines, State Parks, Mercer's Apple Orchard as well as many other activities.
