*This Property has just been listed as a rental so there may not be many reviews at this time.
Just 90 minutes from Atlanta is a place of exceptional natural beauty offering peace & quiet plus championship trout fishing but close enough to town & all the other activities. The area of Blue Ridge, GA has enough outdoor activities to keep anyone busy but also offers upscale dining & shopping. Mountains, lakes, streams, rafting, tubing, fishing, shopping, this area has it all & is very accessible from both Atlanta & Chattanooga. Wildlife is abundant such as deer, racoons & birds. The master bedroom/bath is on the main level for easy access while the loft has a queen bed, bath & futon. Easy steps down the the creek for fishing & swimming. Tube down Fightingtown Creek or white water raft the famous Ocoee River or Canoe the Toccoa River, they are both so close. The Ocoee Whitewater Center, sight of the 1996 rafting Olympics is just 25 minutes away. Quiet & peaceful in a small gated community but close to shopping, grocery stores, hospital, etc.
(***The map on VRBO is way off where the cabin is. It shows it way, way out into the Cuhuttta forest and way off the beaten path, this is not the case at all. The cabin sits on Fightingtown Creek which is about 5-8 miles east-north from where the map shows it located.) in fact 'Pat's Restaurant' is only 1.5miles away not 14mi like it says below the map.

About Kim Wood
We enjoy the quiet here but also the many outdoor activities available in this area. Our favorite activities are fishing, tubing, rafting, exploring & sitting on the deck looking at the sparkling river. Even in the winter, we love sitting on the upper deck chairs or the sofa downstairs, drinking hot Irish Coffee and watching the river flow by on a Saturday morning after a hard week of work in the city. What therapy! I always enjoy driving up here from the south and seeing the first set of BlueRidge Mountains on the skyline, just makes you take that long awaited exhale -- like your finally at home again. Guess I'm a mountain man after all. Ya'll come on over here and enjoy!

Why Kim Wood chose Blue Ridge
This area has all of the outdoor activities we could ever ask for plus exceptional outdoor beauty, it also makes a very romantic get away. There's nothing that compares to watching a Blue Herring at the bank of Fighting Town Creek hunting trout. They get really big up here, wing span of 6'. The stars above on a clear night will AMAZE you, we even keep a telescope up stairs for you to use if you know how. It is very convenient to the town of BlueRidge, McCaysville, Atlanta, Chattanooga & Knoxville. In the heat of summer it is so nice to wade into what we call our natural whirlpool (middle of the creek there is a 4.5' bowl of water) deep enough to sit on the boulders there and keep your head above water. I've almost fallen asleep there it's so relaxing. We had a renter that said that's about all they did when they were there last June. They call places like this 'God's Country', I can understand why. You really connect with nature up here. I couldn't live without our cabin now that my family has experienced it. We want to share it with everybody! I could go on and on -- the scent of the white pinewood when you open the cabin door, the hummingbirds that buzz by in the mornings, the distant howl of a coyote and her pups. Just Awesome. We love to hike the Blue Ridge mountains, go riding the 4-wheelers, fishing and kayaking. I'll trade a beach get-away for this 3 to 1.
What makes this cabin unique
The VRBO map is way off where the cabin is. It shows it way, way out into the Cuhuttta forest and way off the beaten path, this is not the case at all. The cabin sits on Fightingtown Creek which is about 5-8 miles east-north from where the map shows it located. Call us and we'll provide you with the address to do a Google map search. Their's works!
This cabin is located on a short road off of the main thoroughfare to a small gated community so your privacy is ensured.
Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a wonderful time! Your cabin is awesome, thank you for sharing! My daughter cannot keep herself out of the creek. I personally enjoyed the evenings by the fire pit and making smores. We will be back next summer!
