My wife and I purchased Bearadise in 2008 and spent almost two years making it into the cabin retreat that we dreamed of. We have spent most of our free time enjoying the mountains with our 4 children. In July of 2011 we decided to share our cabin home with others and listed it with a local property management company. We quickly saw the downfalls in using a cabin rental company, both for the owners and the guests. We saw so many things we could do to improve our guests experience. We now enjoy handling the entire process ourselves. Our favorite part is talking to and meeting our guests from all over the country and overseas.

Ron & Alley Sandy purchased this cabin in 2008

We didn't want a cabin located in a big resort that looked like a typical neighborhood, only with cabins. Driving up to Bearadise you drive over a wooden bridge that spans a beautiful trout stream. Going up the mountain is a single lane gravel road that passes four cabins before you reach us. Bearadise gives our guests three bedrooms and three baths with an additional queen size sleeper sofa for larger groups.

Bearadise is filled with knotty pine wood on the walls, doors & ceilings. The feeling is very warm and inviting and give an unmistakably cabin feel. A roaring fire in the wood burning fireplace on a chilly evening gives all the ambiance and romance anyone could ask for. Bearadise is handicapped accessible with a ramp/bridge leading into the cabin, with all living areas besides two bedrooms and a bath on the main living level. We are dog friendly and are happy to talk to you about bringing your best friend to the mountains.

Bearadise is a beautiful, and cozy place to get away from the realities of life. The location is beautiful, and the crisp mountain air is refreshing. We loved the creek that we crossed to get up to the cabin, and our doggies did too! We really enjoyed playing in the creek with our lab! I prefer the tub in the bathroom, over the hot tub, but if there was a group, the hot tub is PERFECT! The overall feeling of bearadise is warm, cozy, and relaxing! The view, and the front yard are spacious, and beautiful. I became intimidated when I started seeing STRAIGHT UP driveways, luckily bearadise was a comfortable, fun up, not a straight up. I loved having a FULL kitchen with everything you needed. Those little things really make a difference! I especially used the iphone dock to play music! Great sound, and great idea to put it in there! :) I recommend bearadise for anyone wanting to enjoy a rustic home away from home vacation. I dont think I will ever go back to hotels! I will definitely be a returning guest of bearadise!

Mother/Daughter Weekend

My daugher and I just got back from our stay at Bearadise Retreat. This cabin was one of the best we have stayed in and we are already planning to go back again. This cabin is everything it is described as and more.
The wi-fi is super fast and picks up great outside. I could sit on the front porch with my coffee and check e-mails, etc while overlooking the fabulous view, as our little fur buddies explored the huge yard. The fire pit was great, as well as the hot tub, and huge garden tub in the master bedroom. TV's worked great and the movie closet was full with something for everybody.
My daughter and I both were so sad to have to leave. We especially enjoyed the beds! I don't think I have ever slept so good on a vacation ever, and I consider my bed at home to be very comfy.
Just want to give a big thank you to Alley who kept us updated on road conditions, as we had a major snow just a day before our arrival. We were able to access the cabin with no problem and the directions were spot on.
I just can't say enough about this cabin and will be counting the days till we can come stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Christina for all the kind words, we are so glad that you and your daughter had a great time! Winter is our favorite time to visit the mountains and a little snow is always a plus. Just let us know when you're ready for another escape!

Approximately fifteen minutes from Whitepath Golf Course, and three different rivers that offer tubing and kayaking, horseback riding, fly-fishing, whitewater rafting, hiking, scenic trains rides, antiquing, hassle free shopping, mini golf, children's amusement park, deer park, Amicalola Falls, apple orchards and much, much more. Cabin is located half way up Walnut Mountain with less than a dozen cabins on the mountain. We are located just outside of Ellijay with easy access to Blue Ridge. At the bottom of our road is Turniptown Creek where you will see fly fishers and people panning for gold on occasion. Ex-President Jimmy Carter's cabin is very nearby and has done much work personally making the creek habitable for trout by hand building rock dams for spawning pools. We are 4 miles from the Cartecay River with tubing and kayaking outfitters. Great local restaurants and shopping are within a 15 minute drive.

This list will not do justice to all the activities and attractions in this area. The local chambers of commerce have a wealth of the same, as well as knowledgeable and friendly personnel who love to share information about their special corner of paradise. Of course, you can also research the towns and general area on the Internet. Hiking galore, including the Appalachian and the Benton MacKaye.

Fishing, boating, Jet Skiing, tubing, whitewater rafting--Lake Blue Ridge, Toccoa River, Ocoee River Horseback riding, golf, mountain biking, gem and gold panning.

Antiquing--Blue Ridge has been called the antique capital of GA, and Ellijay, with its charming roundabout (instead of the typical courthouse square), has its share, too. Swan Drive-In Theater, one of the few remaining today, operating since 1955.

Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, on which you can take a narrated ride from Blue Ridge to the twin cities of McKaysville GA and Copperhill TN and stand with one foot in GA and one in TN--marked with a big blue line painted through the IGA Grocery parking lot.

Apple businesses where you can view the process from orchard to grocery bag, tour the facilities, shop for apple-themed goods and goodies, and try one of the area's delights: the fried pie! Ellijay is known as the apple capital of GA.

Wonderful local restaurants--just a few: the Toccoa Riverside, where on weekend nights a duet of two elderly, overall-clad bluegrass pickers entertain; the Pink Pig in Cherry Log, President Jimmy Carter's favorite BBQ joint; Colonel Poole's BBQ in Ellijay, where the hillside is decorated with a giant outline of a pig compiled of hundreds of plywood pigs naming past patrons (some celebrities), and our favorite Italian place, Charlies in Ellijay.

Festivals throughout the year: for example, Apple Festival, Sorghum Festival, Prater's Mill Festival, GA Mountain Fair (demonstrations of old-timey mountain practices), Rhododendron Festival, Bluegrass Festival, Dahlonega's Gold Rush Days.

Numerous state parks, national parks, and national forests, each with its own amenities, activities, and gorgeous scenery.

Marked scenic drives/highways, almost all with scenic pull-overs and overlooks, especially important during our gorgeous autumn 'leaf-gawking' season.

Countless waterfalls, one of which (Amicalola) is the tallest cascading falls east of the Mississippi; in the cabin are a pamphlets with descriptions and directions to 11 falls in the area--all of which we've hiked to--only a couple are strenuous treks.

Just a few miles from the cabin is the longest suspension bridge east of the Mississippi, a very short and easy hike brings you to where it crosses the Toccoa River.

A little further away is Tallulah Falls and Gorge, the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi(notice a pattern here?)--we've hiked to the bottom of it, and it is strenuous, but magnificent.

Many other sights within a short drive, such as Brasstown Bald, the highest point in GA, Dahlonega's Gold Museum, the Alpine town of Helen. Also available in-cabin are such services as massage and gourmet chef.
