Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed at the cabin for Valentines Day and we were excited by how nice the cabin was. We spent a lot of quiet time together and enjoyed each others company. The place is beautifully decorated, has everything you'll ever need and it was great to just sit back and enjoy the downtime. The hot tub with views was sure inviting! Thanks so much!

We're a family of four, my wife and I have a son and a daughter in middle school. We moved to Knoxville, TN from the Atlanta metro area two years ago with a job opportunity. We have been rescuing German Shepherd Dogs over the last 15 years and currently have two.

We spent almost twenty years in the Acworth, GA area before heading to Knoxville. Before that, my wife and I grew up in Connecticut. We met in high school and then later in life when we started dating. We're about to celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary this June.

Bud Ketterl purchased this cabin in 2008

Our family purchased the cabin a few years ago after renting it for several years before that. We fell in love with the cabin and its amazing views, the town of Blue Ridge, its natural beauty, the people and all there is to do there. We hope to retire in Blue Ridge eventually, it is just a whole new way of life there.

The cabin sits literally on top of the mountain, but only a five minute drive from the highway. You're only 10 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge, where there a amazing restaurants, coffee shops, antique stores and so much more. The property borders the national forest and the views of the mountains and valleys are just beautiful. If you're looking for a place to kick back, put your feet up and enjoy the views, this is the place. It has a screen in rocker porch, a side deck, decks off the basement and a private screened in deck off the upper bedroom.

Don't let the word cabin throw you off though. It has all the amenities of your home - wireless internet, flat screen TVs, hot tub, air conditioning and especially indoor plumbing!

Check out the photo gallery page here on our website to see what it has to offer, You'll fall in love with it, just like we did.

GREAT ESCAPE!

  • 5 of 5
Awesome cabin with great views. We enjoyed a great week relaxing at Above the Clouds. Everything was ready for our arrival and there were even dog bowels available. The cabin was conveniently located close to Blue Ridge ( approx 6 miles) which is great place to visit. The road to the cabin was steep but quite manageable and is only about 1 mile off the main road. We had a 2wd truck which was no problem and did see other cars managing the road with no problems. Even though the cabin is conveniently located to Blue Ridge it is still extremely peaceful and feels like you are in the middle of the mountains. The cabin was so comfortable it was hard to leave but when we did we recommend visiting Mercier Orchards and downtown Blue Ridge. Bud, congratulations on a great cabin. We hope to make it back next year.

AWESOME CABIN

  • 5 of 5
Great place, on top of the mountain, amenities were super-especially the hot tub. Road up the mountain was a little rough, but the cabin was worth it. Owner was especially helpful in providing information for the area.

i would definitely recommend this property.

VIEW. VIEW. VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We have rented many cabins over the years and this one has had the best view by far of any we have stayed. The cabin was decorated perfectly from the one of a kind beds to the simplest of touches. The owners were so easy to work with and they answered all our questions and were so helpful. This is one cabin I know we will be back to.

LIKE FINDING GOLD AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was exactly as described, very clean and well appointed. The views are incredible from every deck.
Bud, the owner, was very helpful and prompt in answering questions, during booking and during our stay.
We would definitely recommend this property...and our yellow lab agrees...(he loved the elevated food bowls so much we bought him one at the craft fair in Blueridge)
There are activities all around...We loved the zip line canopy tour and the helicopter tour (gorgeous views of Blue Ridge Lake). Our favorite activity was a kayak trip on the Chestatee River in Dahlonega thru Appalachian Outfitters....easy enough for a beginner but enough small rapids to make it fun for the more experienced. Also in Dahlonega is Amicalola Falls are very beautiful..worth the drive.
Favorite restaurant is the Blue Ridge Brewery... went there twice for the best burger ever!

My friends and I had an awesome time on my most recent trip to Blue Ridge. Above the Clouds has amazing views of the mountains and the cabin has all the comforts of home plus more. You will spend hours sitting on the wrap around porch just enjoying the views of the mountains. We enjoyed white water rafting on the Ocoee river, walking around Blue Ridge, eating at local restaurants. I'm already planning my next trip back.

Although relaxing and reading a good book or watching a great movie is the best thing to do at Above the Clouds, if your desire is for the more active things, here are some suggestions. There are a number of things to do in Blue Ridge. From antiquing to restaurants to riding the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. There are festivals, to 'Arts in the Park', to a community theater. There are orchards where you can pick your own apples. There is even 'The Swan', which is one of three drive-in movie theaters in the state. For the outdoor lovers, the Benton McKaye trail crosses over the cabins mountain. From hiking to fishing - you can rent a boat and fish on Lake Blue Ridge or fish form the shore to trout fishing in the trout capital of Georgia. You can hang at the beach and BBQ or just take in the breathtaking views form the cabin.

Without a doubt, the best website for the area is the Chamber of Commerce website, as it has calendars of things that are going on no matter what time of year you visit. http://www.blueridgemountains.com/
