ASKA ESCAPE Lodge is located in the Aska Adventure area of Blue Ridge, GA. Within walking distance to the Toccoa River and National Forest for fishing, canoeing/kayaking and hiking. Nearby is the Appalachian or Benton McKaye Trails with lots of daytrips, waterfalls to discover and outdoor activities to enjoy! Not an outdoor person? Relax in the luxuries of the cabin or go to downtown Blue Ridge which features many shops, restaurants and the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway to McCaysville.
You may find other cabins for less money but with older furnishings and not well-equipt. We take pride in a very clean, organized and prepared cabin. Walking into this real log cabin, you will find upscale furnishings, locally handcrafted furniture and three levels for your family vacation enjoyment or romantic weekend getaway! Or take a working vacation with our WiFi-DSL.
Outside is a great view on the four-sided wrap around covered porch with picnic table, hanging swing and rocking chairs. Watch the deer and other wildlife gather right outside by the deer feeder. Listen to the quiet of this mountain location and the local creek across the road in this private setting with seasonal mountain views. Relax in serenity if you aren’t up for activity.
The main level has cathedral ceilings with a fully stocked kitchen, 6 seat dining room and comfy open setting with a real-rock wood-burning fireplace. We have plenty of wood just bring your starter logs. Here you’ll find French doors to the porch from either the living room or Master Bedroom with comfy pillow-top King size bed and large bathroom with tub.
Connect into WI-FI or the 32” DVD/TV Flat Screen while enjoying the open living area that leads to the Loft or the Porch. On the deck, have a BBQ on the grill and sit at the picnic table for an outdoor meal. Rest in the porch swing or hammock. Roast marshmallows in the newly updated rock 14' fire pit while telling stories of the day! (BRING DURAFLAME LOGS)
Upstairs in the loft is the SouthWestern style Queen Bedroom (pillow-top mattress)and private bathroom with shower. The overlook area is good for reading in the rocking chair.
The lower level has a private Queen size bedroom (pillow-top mattress) and full bath. The Game room has a gas fireplace, 52” Flat Screen TV with DVD/CD player, Wii System (Bring your Games!), Yoga/Balance Board, Guitar Hero and DVD Library. Try your luck on one of the many board games or your talent on the Karaoke machine (with over 100 songs)! Take the corn-hole board outside or throw some horseshoes on our newly created pits.
Outside the game room sits the lower covered porch with a sitting area and private large 4 person hot tub to relax in the woods.
Look through our extensive 3 ring binder filled with maps of hiking, biking or driving trails, horseback riding, fishing guides, antique shops and restaurant or boating ideas to plan your excursions!

Helene Milbert purchased this cabin in 2009
The Blue Ridge is so diverse in history, activity and serenity. A short day drive from numerous states, it provides a meaningful family vacation, reunion or getaway. If you are here for a week, drive into Atlanta to the city to see the Braves, Aquarium, Coca-cola or the city. Stone Mountain Georgia is a great day trip or drive north into North Carolina or Tennessee to the Great Smoky Mountains, Asheville or Gatlinburg. Lake BlueRidge is closeby for boating, fly-fishing down the hill or discover the many stores and local restaurants. SO much to see and do in this area!
Just wanted to let you know that our family absolutely loved your cabin! We came to Blue Ridge on vacation last year, so we already knew we loved the area, but "Aska Escape" was the icing on the cake this time around. There are only 3 of us, so I guess we didn't actually NEED all 3 bedrooms and bathrooms, but we cetainly enjoyed all the extra sapce. :-) The cabin was clean as a whistle when we arrived, and we immediately fell in love with all the closet space and of course the GAME ROOM (and the hot tub and the Wii and the fire pit and the hammock and the wrap-around porch.....:-)) My 12-yr old daughter claimed the basement as her own, and I have to say how nice it was for her to have her own space to watch all those shows on Disney and Nick that my husband and I get tired of watching. :-) We are pretty active vacationers, so we didn't hang out around the cabin a whole lot, but we are already planning a longer trip for next time so that we will have LOTS of time to enjoy your lovely cabin. We will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful time at Aska Escape. I took my in-laws along with my husband up there for a weekend to relax. It was very peaceful. The weather was perfect. Downtown Blue Ridge is not that far for shopping and good restaurants. We also went to the Toccoa River. And more importantly, we got to spend time at the cabin in the hot tub, by the firepit, grilling out and sitting by the fireplace. It was perfect! I would definitely go back again. Thanks!
What a wonderful cabin!!! THe photos don't do it justice. I took my boyfriend up to Blue Ridge for his upcoming 50th as a surprise getaway. We had 2 other couples join us and we had a wonderful time. We relaxed in the hot tub, sat out in the hammock while hanging out by the firepit, played cards, and just enjoyed each other's company. It was perfect for 3 couples..... We had an amazing lunch at Harvest on Main while downtown shopping. We also did some hard cider tastings at Mercier Orchards. The weather was perfect! We were anxious to see some deer at the feeder, but only saw one on the last morning. We didn't want to leave come Sunday morning. We will definitely be back! Thanks again for sharing your cabin!
We had a fabulous vacation with family. Asks Escape is comfortable, beautiful & had everything we could possibly need. We played horseshoes, checkers, made snores by the fire at night. Everyone found something to entertain them. Our favorite was watching the deer in the yard morning & night. Owner was so friendly when spoke with her too. Thanks so much fir a great much needed vacation.Look. forward to going back.
This was my second stay at Aska Escape for so many reasons.... The owners have made this cabin home my favorite by sharing what makes it special for them. Extra care and thought for the guest, which is not the case with some cabins as reasonably priced. Everything from the feel of a quality mattress (firm enough for my bad back) and extra soft linens , the new grille & upscale firepit, plus outdoor seating choices and arrangements are perfect for moments alone or together and each with a view! Seeing deer at least twice every day & occasional hummingbirds at one of the feeders is also a highlight for me here. My family with teenagers are never bored either! ? Seriously! There are wii games which are hysterical to watch or play, tons of board games, movies, books, cards, checkers and the outdoor adventures for everyone. This year we booked a few more days to add some more activities to our relaxation time and we are so happy we did. Everything was so easy to do without rushing around this year. We even slept in like crazy but didn't miss a thing :) We went a few miles up the road to the Lilypad 2x for great mining and amazing fancy coffee delights, went about 1 mile to Van Zandt's for anything we forgot to get in town, quick eats, and great tubing 2x.... Blairesville was a new treat for us this year with Vogel State Park, Brasstown Bald, Helton Creek Falls, and the best horseback trail riding experience that I have ever had at A Step Above... all of this done in 2 separate afternoon's without compromising our seemingly much needed slow wake period with fancy mountain cabin 5 star breakfast-brunch I seem only inspired to pull off at Aska Escape. Ha! No kidding! I'm even booked again in August for a girl trip - 4 adult sibling get away so I can share the area, it's activities and majestic scenery, AND stay in "my" luxury cabin home away from home with my sisters. This is it!
Thank you again Helene & Todd. I will make this my one and only review because it has already been said and there is a part of me that wants to keep it "in the family"...quite frankly.
This cabin was amazing! We could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay. The cabin was CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN and beautifully decorated! There were 6 of us and we had more than enough space! We loved going to downtown Blue Ridge and checking out all the shops (make sure you go to the Sweet Shoppe!) Also go to Van Zandts for the best burger and fries! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at this wonderful cabin! We WILL be back!
We absolutely LOVED our stay!!! We usually travel to Tennessee and stay in cabins there but will DEFINITELY be coming back to ASKA ESCAPE instead! The pictures do NOT capture the beauty of this cabin. It is impeccably maintained from top to bottom inside and out. The owners definitely have accomplished making you feel at "home" in this cabin. Can't wait to visit again next year!!
