Overview

Blue Ridge House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our lake getaway is the perfect place for a couple who wants peace and quiet or a family ready for adventure. The large picture windows and French doors let you see the mist on the lake in the morning, watch the fishing boats as they quietly pass, and see the first skiers enjoying the water. Our broad lakefront lot features a panoramic view from above the lake without being too far from the water. Magnificent lake views can be seen from every room with a breathtaking mountain vista as the backdrop. Our cabin is across the cove from the US Forest service property so your view across the lake will be clear of docks. We are located at the deep water end of Star Creek near a point which opens toward the main water of Lake Blue Ridge.

Sit atop the upper deck by day and watch the boats playing in the lake or relax in the large hammock. At night the same open deck becomes the place to sit comfortably in the lounging chairs, eat dinner at the outdoor table, or watch the starry sky. Fish from our dock in the cool morning. In the heat of the day, the adjacent screened porch is perfect for grilling and outdoor eating. On the terrace level, a covered deck hosts a 7 person hot tub with a fabulous view of the lake just steps away. The other covered deck on the terrace level is the perfect place for reading or relaxing in the hammock chair or outdoor rocking chairs.

Our house comes fully equipped with everything you will need from cooking supplies to linens. We provide soap, dishwashing detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, cooking oil, and even some spices. All you need are your personal items and a beach towel for a dip in the hot tub or the lake. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances and seating for 3 at the island/bar. The teak dining table seats 8 people and there is outside seating for 8 on the deck and for 4 on the screened porch. A canoe, paddles and life jackets are included for guests to use on the lake.

About Ralph and Lori Fowler

We live south of Blue Ridge near Atlanta but our hearts reside at the lake. We often drive to Lake Blue Ridge just for the day or a long weekend. Our three children have grown up tubing, skiing, and fishing on the lake and love to bring friends to visit.

Ralph and Lori Fowler purchased this house in 1996

Why Ralph and Lori Fowler chose Blue Ridge

My wife's great grandparents owned a mill on Star Creek a few miles from our house when the lake was being built in the 1920's and her grandfather often swam across our cove with friends as a teenager. 'We have always thought that Lake Blue Ridge is the most beautiful, yet private, lake in Georgia.

What makes this house unique

The home is situated on a cove away from the main lake traffic, but only 5 minutes by boat from the Marina or the Morganton Point Beach & free boat ramp. Our boat slip and Jet Ski docks are available for you to use if you bring your boat or Jet Skis.

We love to sit on the deck and watch the stars and occasionally a meteor shower.

The water is clear. You can fish right from our dock for Walleye, Pike, Bass, and Bluegill.

Super setting

  • 5 of 5

We visited Blue Ridge right after Easter when the weather could've been a little iffy. It turned out great. The home is very nice and is in a gorgeous location with a beautiful lake/mountain view from the deck space. There's a gas fire table on the deck and plenty of seating space. The great room is all wood with a nice fireplace, and the kitchen is well-equipped. The dock and canoe are great, as is the hot tub, and we rented a boat one day. The best part is how quiet it is. We had 4 adults, a 2nd grader, a 5th grader, and a high school sophomore and everyone was happy.

An amazing weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our week away from the city was so relaxing! Sitting in the hot tub overlooking the lake was a great way to end the day.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for families or small groups of friends. The house and property are very well maintained, well-equipped and very comfortable. It had the warmth of your own home AND the sense of a genuine get-away. The porches and windows really capitalize on the lake view while maintaining a sense of privacy from the neighbors. The owners were very easy to work with and gave accurate instructions and directions (even relating to the slightly tricky driveway). We've rented several houses and my family liked this one the best. I hope to come back in the future.

Perfect place for any gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a smaller group (2 couples) over NYE holiday, and really enjoyed our visit. Plenty of recreational and fun amenities are included the house, and very close to activities such as zip-lining (www.zipblueridge.com YAY!), shopping and dining out downtown (10-15 mins), and plenty of hiking options. The cabin had everything we needed for cooking/etc, and grocery store options were easy to access. We plan to return with more people to enjoy warmer weather and water activities, and look forward to filling up the spacious house that will easily sleep 8 guests. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Wonderful Place for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 7 nights here and it was wonderful. The home was lovely and spacious. The view is breathtaking and there is was so much for us to do in the area, white water rafting, tubing down the river, hiking to a waterfall, playing on the lake and sooo much more. The home was clean and fully stocked with necessities. The pictures are exactly the way the home looks. I would definitely recommend this home to others.
