Overview

Blue Ridge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Classic A-frame cabin with mountain views and modern updates.

Although the triangle shape of the A-frame has been present throughout the history of architecture, it surged in popularity around the world in the post-World War II era, from roughly the mid-1950s through the 1970s. This example built in 1984 has been completely modernized in 2013, while retaining the rustic charm and warmth that make it such an ideal mountain vacation home.

Located in an all-cabin development just minutes from downtown Blue Ridge with access to Benton Mackaye hiking trail, streams, stocked lakes, and all that North Georgia has to offer. You know you are somewhere special when you cross the covered bridge and follow the winding path of a stream as you enter the community. Drive approximately 1/2 mile up the mountain on a gravel road (easily traveled by passenger cars) to reach the ridge Mountain Outpost #171 is perched on.

Mountain Outpost #171 greets guests with its original Pecky Cypress interior, 20' ceilings in the great room, stacked stone wood burning fireplace, dark hardwood floors, comfortable contemporary furnishings, well equipped custom kitchen (incl. dishwasher, ice maker, smooth-top range, microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker and granite counters), 47' LED HDTV w/Netflix & Hulu Plus, cable, DVD player, and hi-speed WiFi internet. Two bedrooms with queen size beds (lower BR includes dresser and built-in wardrobe, upper BR includes dresser and hall closet), large renovated bath with tub/shower combo, and separate laundry room with full size stackable W/D.

Enjoy year-round mountain and wooded views from the windows in the great room, the SpaCrest hot tub, or the expansive rear and front decks - including a second level 'Happy Hour Tower' seating area for the best vantage point. Be sure to keep an eye open for frequent visits from deer and wild turkeys in the area!

About Steven Poyner

I originally purchased this property back in 1999 and sold it in 2001. We were excited at the opportunity to repurchase the cabin and renovated it in 2013. I live in Atlanta and visit Blue Ridge to relax whenever my schedule allows.

Steven Poyner purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Steven Poyner chose Blue Ridge

I've always been attracted to A-frames and this little gem had me as soon as I laid eyes on it. It was great to be able to modernize the amenities it offers while maintaining the original rustic appeal. That, alone with the private location, make it the perfect get away to enjoy some down-time.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Outpost for a long weekend. The cabin is nice, clean, and has everything you could want in a cabin. The kitchen and is new and clean, the large deck is nice, and the hot tub looks nearly brand new. We will be back.

Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Outpost 171 was the perfect place to spend Christmas with my husband! The cabin is outfitted with so many thoughtful touches - lights on dimmers, night lights in the bathroom and bedroom, a well-equipped kitchen (we cooked a full Christmas dinner in there!), throw pillows and blankets, etc. The bed is EXTRA squishy, so keep that in mind if you have back troubles. But everything about the cabin was perfection! We took other reviewers' comments to heart and rented an SUV for our drive up, and I was REALLY glad we did. The gravel roads are seriously steep and twisty, and I'm not sure we would have made it in our little hatchback, especially when the icy rain hit! The hot tub was perfect for two people, and the TV was huge - we watched movie on Netflix all day on Christmas Eve; the internet was fast and consistent. Really great little getaway!

Worth every cent!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday and all I can say is the weekend was far too short! It was such a classy get away rental, yet its absolutely cozy and we felt right at home as soon as we got there. I was skeptical of the fact there was no bad reviews when I booked it, I figured there had to be a catch. However I was wrong in every way, all of these excellent reviews are so very well deserved that if you dont experience it for yourself you are simply missing out. It had anything we could have possibly needed and steven has prepared it so well that it was impossible not to enjoy ourselves. If you are a couple looking for a perfectly relaxing and romantic getaway, I can confidently yell you this is where you want to stay.

My Autumn Collection

  • 5 of 5

Very nice! Love the seclusion and privacy. The upstairs bed is most comfortable. We really enjoyed the hot tub. Once we got use to the trek up the mountain, we did just fine!

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

It took us about 20mins to find the cabin due to cell service being spotty, however it was definitely worth the frustration. The cabin itself was very modern and clean. The picture do the cabin no justice! We really enjoyed our stay and the weather was perfect. This cabin is great for couples enough space while still feeling cozy. The kitchen is nice, clean and modern and has almost everything you can think of, which is great to because we forgot to bring a few things. This cabin will probably be our yearly cabin getaway from now on. That's how much we loved it! Thanks Steven!
