About Ron & Alley Sandy

We 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

Why Ron & Alley Sandy chose Ellijay

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful weekend in this beautiful cabin. Enjoyed the BBQ and the wine. Thanks to the Sandy's for everything.

Wonderful cabin with everything you'd need or want for a stay in the mountains

Wonderful cabin with everything you'd need or want for a stay in the mountains
  • 5 of 5
LOVED everything about it! I have to warn you up front that the pictures shown are not 100% accurate, the cabin is MUCH nicer than the photos show. We were blown away! My family is touring the USA from China and have stayed in six home rentals so far and this one has been the best. Everything was organized and so clean we couldn't believe it. The cabin was large enough that my family of eight always had somewhere quiet to go to read or relax. The log beds were extremely comfortable and most days we all slept in. The view from the deck was great as was the hot tub! We were only 15 minutes from town, shopping and restaurants. The owners were so nice, we had a difficulty with the password on the internet and he helped me get it working on my computer right away. They also helped point us to so many things to do while we were in the area. Thank you Ron and Alley for your hospitality and your wonderful cabin!

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5
The five of us had a great time in the Bearadise cabin. We found it very comfortable - and the girls all said "wow" when they walked in! There are some great places to visit in the area, and we ate very well in Ellihay and Blue Ridge.

Bearadise was a 5 star experience

  • 5 of 5
Upon our arrival at Bearadise Retreat we were very excited to see that the cabin was everything we had expected and more. The first thing that struck me was how clean it was, and how the owners had provided detailed information for absolutely everything there was to do in the area. We spent a couple of nights by the fire pit roasting marshmallows and exploring the surrounding woods. I really felt at home sitting on the porch with my family and enjoying the perfect weather. The beds were as comfortable as any hotel I have ever stayed in which provided restful nights for my entire family. I would, and actually have already, recommend this wonderful retreat to my friends and relatives. We enjoyed horseback riding and hired a fishing guide during our trip. All of the information for these services are provided in the information book supplied by the owners.

Great Getaway in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our escape from Nashville to Ron and Alley's cabin - the location is completely secluded yet only 15-20 minutes from town (which was fortunate considering the extra food and supplies we forgot to pack). Between sitting around the campfire and relaxing in the hot tub with friends, Bearadise was a great fit as we were looking to relax and take in nature. We also hiked the Amicalola Falls, the tallest waterfall east of the Mississippi - only 30 minutes away! I'll definitely be back.

Phenomenal experience, but even better property owners!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about the gorgeous location this cabin is set in, but the interior is just as beautiful. A group of us (9 young adults) stayed for a couple days to celebrate a birthday. Everything was taken care of for us, and if we had any questions, the owners were willing to drive up and personally assist us. What really sets this cabin and its owners apart from the rest, is I lost my wallet in the cabin (it blends in with the wood apparently), and they found it notified the head of our group, and had it in the mail the next business day. I can't thank you guys enough! This is a must rent property!

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.
