CREEK FRONT - NEW LOOK, SAME GREAT PRICE!

Blue Ridge Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

Great Deal. Freshly painted, same great place, same great price! $600 for a seven-night rental (Sat-Sat preferred), plus a $70 cleaning fee. Individual nights: $90/night, plus a $70 cleaning fee*. Dog is OK, with a $100 refundable security deposit. (*$100 cleaning fee with 2 dogs and/or 8 guests.)

Bear Creek Camp, with its creek, mountain and pasture views, provides a wonderful setting for you to enjoy your vacation in the North Georgia mountains. During the day you can picnic at our creek-side pavilion, fish for trout in the creek (just 15 feet from your door), and toss the football or kick the soccer ball in the flat two-acre field. At night, cozy up to a bonfire at the fire pit next to the pavilion and gaze at the stars (you can see the Milkyway!). And perhaps best all, you will not be charged an arm and a leg for all this fun.

This Camp (about 1,100 square feet) sits on three flat acres bordered by over 1,000 feet of clean rock bottomed/fast moving Skeenah Gap Creek. No slow brown/murky water runs here. Many of our guests say their kids have had the best time exploring the creek and all the wonders it has to offer, including the trolls that occasionally gather beneath the bridges at the front and back of the property (;D). It is your private little slice of heaven for the duration of your stay.

House has three bedrooms - one bedroom with a king bed, one bedroom with a queen bed, and one bedroom with two bunkbeds (meaning four twins)and one full bath with huge shower. All linens/towels provided.

Fully-equipped kitchen, complete with: plates, dishes, silverware, glassware (including wine, margarita, martini, cocktail glasses) tupperware, pots, pans, baking tins, muffin tins, cookie sheets, coffee maker (filters provided), blender, toaster oven, microwave, crock-pot, cutting boards, oven mits/gloves, paper towels, kitchen towels, knife set, dishwasher (soap included), picnic baskets, cooler, and lemonade/ice tea containers.

Big, wood burning, brick masonry fireplace and a new furnace will keep you warm on cold nights, and a new central AC system (w/easy control) will keep you cool during the warm days of summer. If it is not too warm, you might want to leave the windows open to allow the soothing sounds of the creek lull you to sleep!

Main room has new 32' flat screen LCD/HD TV, with satellite/DVR, dvd player and sound system. 27' TV with DVD/VCR in the bunkroom; smaller TV with DVD player in one of the king bedroom. 'Old-Time' record player with library of LPs at the ready for teaching kids how to place a needle and flip to the B-side. But alas, iPod connection and separate iPod player available.

Internet? But of course. Wireless, you can even surf the web from the creek-side pavilion. Disclaimer -- we do not guarantee service as we have no idea how to help you if your laptop fails to acquire the wireless signal. IT wizzards we are not.

The camp is centrally located between Suches, Blue Ridge and Blairsville in the Chattahoochee National Forest. You will be within 5 miles of swinging on the bridge over Toccoa River, swimming, canoeing, or tubing in the Toccoa, hiking the Appalachian Trail, Benton McKaye Trail, Duncan Ridge Trail, and/or exploring the Trout Hatchery. Easy ride to either Lake Notteley or Lake Blue Ridge, bring your boat (plenty of easy no-turn parking available). Coming north from Dahlonega on Highway 60 you will have a 30 mile ride through National Forest to get here. Alternative less 'twisty' routes available from Blue Ridge and the Outlet mall on 400. We are 15 minutes from the Lilly Pad Coffee House with live music (bluegrass/folk/etc) on the weekends, mini golf, gem mining and a stocked fishing pond.

Easy access to the Camp off paved roads -- no driving up and down twisty, winding, dusty gravel/dirt roads. 300 yard flat driveway through pasture puts you at the Camp with ample room for parking (easy in, easy out).

A three acre cut yard is parallel to the creek, big enough for football, softball, wiffle ball and/or soccer games. Plenty of room to pitch a tent and sleep to the soothing sounds of Skeenah Gap Creek. Catching fireflies in the field at night provides some wonderful entertainment for the kids (friendly catch and release cages provided).

Big creek-side picnic pavilion (w/electric and lights) awaits you a mere 5 umbrella steps from the camp. Weber charcoal grill provided, complete with BBQ tools, clamp light and cylinder starter. One large picnic table and one smaller picnic table easily accommodates a crew of 10 plus. Fire pit next to pavilion and creek is perfect for bonfires and toasting marshmellows. Chairs provided. Ghost stories not available at this time but encouraged.

Two love-seat swings with views of the creek, mountains and pastures invite you to relax and daydream. Most guests observe that their mountain trips often involve day trips here and there, but they don't leave here much because it is as pretty as any place they could go.

No smoking indoors, please. This is the perfect place to hike, fish, play in the fields, explore your own creek, read, write, sit by the fire, or go for a walk along a quiet gravel road. You can walk out the front door and hike directly to the Benton-MacKeye Trail that cuts along the ridge/mountain you see in the pictures below; about a 20-minute hike from the camp.

Firewood - we do not supply firewood. Our neighbors will happily provide you with firewood for a very reasonable price; their contact information is avaiable at the Camp.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I got a long weekend off and decided to make a spur of the moment trip to Blue Ridge. We arrived to the cabin to find the place being just as perfect as the pictures show! The big yard and creek was perfect for our big bulldog who couldn't get enough of it! Everything you needed was right at the house, we grilled out every night and thanks to the creek and fire pit, we had very relaxing nights! The view across the creek was breathtaking, I sat in the swing facing it the majority of the time. Although it was rainy most of the weekend, we still managed to get a few hikes in which were not far from the house and very beautiful! We definitely would love to come back and stay at BCC!

So private and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
My family, including myself, husband, Mom, three teenagers, and two GSDs recently stayed here at BCC for a nice, relaxing weekend. My oldest son was just graduating Army bootcamp and we felt he needed some R&R. The setting is absolutely wonderful and is so relaxing. Every night, we sat out by the fire, listened to the noisy creek, and watched the THOUSANDS of fireflies light up the trees...it was beyond explanation. We all enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

Great place for dogs

  • 5 of 5
I love Bear Creek Cabin! This is my third time visiting and I always have a great time. My dogs LOVE the creek - they spend all day jumping in and out of the water and then running around the yard and rolling in the grass. It's a Pup's Paradise! The fire pit and the pavilion are great too - we ate outside every chance we could. Had to buy a fan at the Dollar General to blow the gnats away, but it is Spring and to be expected.
I will definitely be back!!

All we could say was WOW! This home is absolutely spectacular. All of its charming characteristics offered us exactly what the description provided us and more. The amenities were more than adequate, it was super clean, spacious and so tranquil.
I would have to say one of my most enjoyable moments were spent sitting by the creek on the love seat swing under the pavilion while sipping my morning coffee. The air was so crisp and clean.
We can't wait to go back. Thank you for an awesome weekend!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay here; we found ourselves not wanting to leave! We chose this home based on the excellent reviews and beautiful photos, and it did not disappoint! In fact, we both agreed that it was even better in person. The home is situated on a beautiful property that includes two streams, an open field, wooded areas, and beautiful scenic vistas across the valley. Simply turn a different direction, and you have a new, gorgeous view.

The home is rustic, which we found incredibly charming and gave us a wonderful sense of nostalgia. Perfect for getting away from the stress we were trying to leave behind for a few days. Despite being "rustic", this was one of the cleanest homes I've had the pleasure of renting. Everything was immaculate, and I had no concerns about the use of any of the facilities. Some of our favorite features were the record player (with an excellent selection of records), the outdoor fire pit, the grill, and the beautiful pavilion. We dined al fresco here for every meal! After grilling a delicious steak, opening a bottle of wine, and lighting a few candles, we agreed that no restaurant could compete with this setup. The toughest decision was whether to listen to music or the gurgling stream!

Our dog was in doggie heaven; I honestly cannot think of a better location for a dog. He slept so well every night after a full day of splashing in the stream and running through the field. We've never seen him so happy.

All in all, this was a perfect long weekend, and we cannot wait to return! It's such an easy (and scenic) drive from Atlanta. We loved that it was close enough to Blue Ridge and Blairsville that we could go into town if needed, but far enough out that we felt a little secluded. Also, I should add that the neighbors who provided us with firewood were extremely kind in answering some of our questions about the area. Thanks, and we look forward to our next visit!
