IT'S NOT JUST AN ESTATE, IT'S AN ESCAPE! *WEDDING, HORSEBACK, & RAFTING PACKAGES

McCaysville Estate Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

The Blanche family welcomes you to the jewel of Blanche Manor, the Blanche Manor Lodge. Located in the heart of our private 65 acre estate you are now able to escape to our once private retreat. The Manor is not just a typical vacation, it is an expereince, one your family will never forget. Where else can you be surrounded by mountian views, ponds with waterfalls and swans, and greeen pastures adorned with grazing horses? Blanche Manor Lodge is a unique secluded retreat, that is minutes from everything we go to the mountains for. The possibilities are endless at our estate. Whether you would like to rent the entire estate for a wedding or corporate retreat, or spend an unforgettable weekend at the Lodge with family and friends, your visit will exceed all expectations. There is horseback riding onsite, wagon rides through a local apple orchard, white water rafting on the Ocoee River ten minutes away, Tubing five minutes away, the Ocoee Whitewater Center for hiking, kayaking, and mountain biking ten minutes away, fantastic dining7 minutes away , the Swan Drive In fifteen minutes, and grocery shopping 5-7 from the private estate.

Our beautiful mountain lodge has all of the amenities you expect with a luxury lodge. A few of them are: the gourmet kitchen with commercial grade appliances, granite counter tops, six burner stoves, convection ovens, hot tub, pool table, master suites with whirlpool baths, WIFI, and satellite TV.

But our lodge also offers far more than that! Experience the privacy and serenity of our secluded 4500 sq ft log home that boasts mountain views of three states. From the lodge another cabin cannot be seen! You are bordered by pastures in the front of the property and creeks and mountains behind.

Inside the lodge you will be greeted by floor to ceiling windows that reveal the true beauty of our mountains. The kitchen, dining area, and great room all share magnificent views that change with the time of say and season - magnificent! We also have indoor living space in the outdoors. The dining area has French doors that open to the large screened in porch that will give a beautiful view of the ponds with the stacked stone waterfalls and swans. If you are looking for some soothing relaxations head to the rear deck for a dip in the hot tub and a view of the stars, mountains, and ponds. Ready for some family time? The front door of the porch will lead you to the giant front porch amply supplied with rocking chairs, gliders, and swings to enjoy the view of the pastures, horses, and sunsets.

Staying at the Manor is not just a vacation it is an experience. There are so many intangible qualities that combine to make this the retreat of a lifetime. When you enter the property that is lined by an orchard of apple trees that leads you to the huge front decks that are bathed in beautiful mountain sunsets, you will begin to understand what you have stumbled upon. Our well thought out location atop the crest of the highest hill of the manor welcomes the gentle cross breezes that cool the afternoons and carry the scent of blooming mountain flora. In the evenings you are treated to a combined symphony of tree frogs, crickets, and owls on the screened in porch facing the pond with the swans. After a day of this you will realize that our lodge has some intangible quality that sets it apart form all other vacations. Being at the Blanche Manor Lodge is a vacation in itself. It is the escape.

We understand that you came to the mountains for some of the activities you can only find here. Our location is perfect for enjoying all of them! Nature watching happens everywhere, including right form your front porch! The mornings are a wonderful time to see deer scampering across the pastures, the horses frolicking in the early morning mist, and the sun rising up over the mountains as you enjoy your tea or coffee. The afternoons are perfect time to explore the mountain treasures of horseback riding, hiking, rafting, antiquing, or napping in a rocking chair or swing and reading that book you have been to dying to finish. The evening is a perfect time to enjoy some peaceful time in the outdoor screened living area next to the pond. The gentle chirp of the frogs lulls away all the concerns you checked at the lodge's front door. As the evening winds down you can enjoy a crackling fire by the floor to ceiling stack stoned fireplace.

In the days that you spend on the ranch, you will have anything you want to enjoy in the mountains is at your doorstep...literally. The ranch has a guided horseback riding and cowboy arena adventures located onsite. The Ocoee River and its rapids await only 10 minutes away. The Ocoee Whitewater Center is with 10 minutes and offers fantastic hiking, mountain biking, and walking trails for the entire family. Being at the Blanche Manor Lodge is not a vacation, it is an experience. An experience that will live in your family's memories for years to come.

Once you stay with us at the Blanche Manor Lodge other vacations will fail to compare. It is an experience to be remembered, and one impossible to duplicate anywhere else. We look forward to your arrival, the mountains are waiting.

We began to create Blanche Manor in 2000. My husband and I left the corporate world to live our dreams. We carved Blanche Manor out of the wilderness. In 2006, when we wer rapidly blessed with 4 children, we built Blanche Manor Lodge on the highest point of our estate. The spot was chosen not only for the views, but the magnificent cross breezes that flow through during the spring, summer, and fall seasons.

The 6 bedroom, 5 bath estate was built with two purposes, to enjoy the beauty of the mountains from INSIDE the home, and to have enough room for our family and friends to share it with us. We love our home. It has been, and continues to be a place where many family, meals, memories, and quiet times have been shared.

Our family is now happy to share our treasure with you. It is an ideal location for family reunions, corporate retreats, an entire summer hiatus, or even a quick weekend get away form the city. We know you will love the Lodge and grounds as much as we do, and we hope you return for years to come.

blair purchased this estate in 2006

This was the perfect location to be close to all the outdoor activities we love about the mountains, offered us the privacy of our own estate, and was convenient to town for everyday needs, and close enough to Blue Ridge for fine dining and upscale shopping.

We are located on a private estate that boasts mountain views, ponds with waterfalls and swans, with horseback riding onsite. There is no other place like this available to the public. The views, setting, and amenities are unparalleled. The entire estate can be rented for weddings or corporate retreats. Additional lodging available for 16 more guests. VRBO listing #263686 for Yurt #1, VRBO Listing 456375 for Yurt #2, VRBO listing #456373 for The Bunkhouse.

SLICE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
This place means total relaxation! Our family needed a break from some serious stress and this is just what the doctor ordered. We plopped down in the rocking chairs on the front porch, cracked an ice cold beer and put our feet up on the rail to watch the sun go down over the horse pasture directly in front of us. The hot tub took care of some aches and pains and I had one of the best night's sleep in a long time. Quiet, laid back, peaceful and all in a wonderful home that is well-designed and spacious. We were a large group but never felt like we were in each others way. Bring your hiking shoes as there are lots of great trails a short drive away in the Nantahala. We especially enjoyed hiking the Jack's River Trail. Bring your family and enjoy nature!

FANTASTIC PLACE FOR A WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We came up to celebrate my birthday and were thrilled to see that this house is even prettier in person! Perfect for a getaway with family and friends! We love to cook, and this kitchen is beautiful and well equipped with everything that we needed. Loved the big island in the kitchen which makes it easy to socialize while preparing food. We also enjoyed relaxing by the fireplace with an incredible view of the mountains. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated, very comfortable and everything is very clean. The kids enjoyed the hot tub, and backyard with playground. We didn't have time to go horseback riding, but hope to next time. Less than 2 hours from our Cobb County home, we will definitely come back again!
