Perfect home and view but lacking the little things.

  • 3 of 5

I recently took a group of teenagers to the Blue Ridge Mountains in north Georgia and stayed at this home. The home is very lovely and it has a terrific view of the surrounding mountains. The hot tub on the deck was my group's favorite part! However there were things missing that were really needed. The kitchen was not well stocked at all. When you're preparing a meal for a group, you really need serving dishes and things of that nature...there were none. The cabin rents for 10 but only had dish service for eight. There were no pitchers for making tea or lemonade. Also, since we stayed there in the winter, the house is on the cold side. There were no blankets except for what covered the beds.

All in all the house was beautiful and wonderful for my group but these little things add up. I would rent this house again if it were better stocked.

Charming Cabin In the Woods

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time that I rented a cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains so I wasn't sure what to expect. Prior to our trip I had several e-mails with the owner regarding what to pack and what activities were available in Blue Ridge, GA. The owner was very responsive and helpful with both regards which allowed preparing for the trip to be extremely easy.

My family and I (8 people) arrived on Saturday and were pleasantly surprised with how large and beautiful this cabin actually was. The pictures do not do this place justice as the cabin offers much more then noted in the above pictures/ description. The cabin included a beautiful large wrap around deck, streaming Netflix, both a pool and Ping-Pong table and multiple fireplaces (2 inside and 2 outside), lush forest and stunning mountain views. The weather did not cooperate during our stay but we were able to have fun in the cabin regardless. Between enjoying the many fireplaces, the hot tub, playing pool, playing Ping-Pong, playing cards, playing checkers, watching Netflix and wandering the premises we almost forgot that it was raining. This cabin is also located about 15 minutes from a fresh farmers market, 15 minutes from a grocery store, 20 minutes from old Blue Ridge and approximately 40 minutes for Tennessee. There are tons of trails and hiking adventures that are accessible within a 15-20 minute drive from the cabin. There are also plenty of wild life around the cabin further making us feel that we were away from the city.

This trip was extremely relaxing and fun and the cabin is absolutely beautiful. As mentioned above, the owner was also very accommodating and great to work with. The owner checked in with us before we arrived and talked to me about the trip once we returned. My family and I had a wonderful time at this cabin and would love to rent it again.

Random Note:

1. The cabin is about a .50 miles from the main road and up a winding steep road. I drove a 4x4 and had no problem getting up to the cabin but the drive up was a little bit challenging for our other car which was a Toyota Camry.

2. There was plenty of firewood around the cabin.

Perfect setting!! Quite!!! Love the large deck!!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was FABULOUS!! The photos are exact - the home was very large, clean, roomy. The fire pit on the deck was most enjoyed - we were gathered around every evening. Appears some trees were recently taken down which gave a beautiful view of the mountains in the distant. The home appeared to be recently built and absolutly loved the large deck all the way around the house. We visited a couple of BBQ restaurant in the area which were really good, but mostly cooked and brought our own food. We were only 10-15 minutes in each direction from Walmart and Ingles, so no problem in getting anything we forgot. The town of Blue Ridge is only 10-15 minutes from home and the shops were unique and nice to browse through. There is a cupcake shop that was featured on Food Network!! Would highly recommend to anyone! Also loved the trip to Mercier Apple Orchard, they had tours of the fields and country store, and amazing breads and tarts.
