Blue Ridge Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Come and get away from it all at Mountain Peek cabin. This chalet-type cabin with two story plus ceilings and exposed beams gives a very open, inviting feeling. Large floor to ceiling windows take in the breath-taking year round views of the mountains. Located on a ridge, watch the sun come up on the back deck, or a seasonal view of sunset from points of the cabin.

Everything is provided...just pack some groceries and a toothbrush. All the conveniences of your own home...plus DVD player. NOW WITH HBO AND SHOWTIME CHANNELS!! A library of movies and books will keep you entertained, as well. Two queen sized beds sleep four comfortably, plus two sleeper sofas, one in the additional loft, off from the second bedroom upstairs, allows sleeping for a maximum of eight.

This charming community is only 90 minutes from Atlanta, highway all the way, until you come to Sisson's Cherry Log. Drive over the covered bridge, the railroad tracks (and be sure to take the train ride to McCaysville, too) and then you're only five minutes up the mountain to the cabin.

Be sure and check out the five lakes found in the community and lots of hiking opportunities, just a short walk from the front door. Also enjoy the restaurants, shopping, theatre, rafting, biking, etc., all just minutes in either direction of the cabin.

We look forward to having you and yours at Mountain Peek.

Guestbook comments from the owner
John and Lance,

Thanks for letting us stay at your cabin. We had a great time, and enjoyed breaking-in your new grill and dishwasher.

Everyone had fun in the hot tub, especially me, after hiking the Benton-Mackay Trail. New fireplace is nice and easy.

We tried to leave things at least as nice as we found them.



Hope to stay again soon!

GREAT CABIN

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was the perfect spot to get away from the city for a long weekend. Our favorite parts were the hot tub and the grill. We went into Blue Ridge one day, only a short drive away. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed.

WORST CABIN EVER!

  • 1 of 5
I'll keep it short. Drove 90 miles from Atlanta last night.. Drove 90 miles back to Atlanta last night.

Highlights:
- No cleaning was done - sheets on floor, dirty dishes..I get it, weather issues could have caused a delay.. A little communication would have gone a long way.
- There was poop in the toilet.. No need to elaborate.
- Hot tub was less than half full.
- Little baby roaches crawled all over our food on the counter.
- The guest book is full of complaints.. and argumentative responses from the owners.
- There are little notes everywhere reminiscent of grandma nagging you of all the things you shouldn't do at her house - making you feel the opposite of welcome.
- Furnishings are outdated
- Floors are in bad shape

Owner is not responsive to email and was not overly hospitable on the phone.

Poor experience all around.

Owner's Response: For over 10 years, we have had a very good rental history with some very satisfied renters. Some have submitted 4 and 5 star reviews (note the previous review.)
We are very sorry when isolated incidences with communication or paralyzing weather conditions (i.e. Ice Storm 2014) give a less favorable experience.
Very quickly to address some points....."Outdated Furniture"- Just this year, we have proudly installed a very comfortable leather recliner, under counter recessed lighting, a new stainless steel refrigerator with ice maker, new gas logs, as well as new linens for the beds and baths. "Unclean cabin"- Notice was given immediately to very reliable cleaning service(who we have used for over six years), located only minutes away. "Bugs"- Dishes in the sink......And we called our regular exterminating service to make sure they took care of that. (Allgood Pest Solutions from Dalton, Georgia).
We are constantly updating and maintaining the most comfortable 'home away from home' experience for our renters. (Renters, who come from all over the Southeast....Louisiana, Florida, Tennessee, Alabama.)
Thank you....

GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN BLUE RIDGE

  • 5 of 5
We had agreat time at this cabin. John thanks for your help. The Cabin is in my favorite area of Blue Ridge. Close enough to town and if you want to drive in to Ellijay it is on that side of Blue Ridge. The Cabin is very nice. We brought our two Bostons with us and they loved the area. John and Lance thanks for having us and we look forward to returning here.

LESS THAN PROMISED

  • 2 of 5
Yes, you do go to the mountains to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. That being said, you can do that by going to any cabin, and this one was a disappointment. Pictures must have been taken years ago, they don't show holes in the pillow shams (and the "towels" or "rags"), scratches on the tables, the scotch-taped cover on the hot tub, and the dirty kitchen window. Beds were hard, as a previous comment stated, and pine cones slamming against the tin roof in the middle of the night further disrupted sleep. TV only worked on major stations. Location is 2 1/2 miles up the mountain on a single-lane road, partially unpaved. Cabin has nice layout and, with some care, has the potential to be a nice place to stay. Unfortunately, it has obviously gotten very little attention and upkeep.

Owner's Response: There is something to be said for getting back to nature. A general feeling of relaxation and departure from the everyday grind is found at "Mountain Peek".
We are proud to say that we have owned and shared our cabin with many happy renters for 10 years now. We've had a very good rental history on the whole.
Its a pleasure to hear all the stories from our renters and we also take into serious consideration any constructive criticism as well. Many solutions are very simple....a change of batteries for the remote to enjoy over 100 channels on our cable service. But, as any home owner will reflect, some maintenance can be more envolved....such as a hot water heater, a new door, a piece of furniture....or a hot tub cover (which has been replaced four times, incidentally.)
And we look forward to renting our cabin for many years to come. It is a pleasure sharing our home in the mountains to all who come for a weekend getaway, a honeymoon, an anniversary celebration, a Thanksgiving family gathering, or a week long vacation.
Please come again and enjoy....and see how we are evergrowing and accomodating to our renter's needs.

CAN'T DECIDE WHAT OUR FAVORITE PART WAS...

Can't decide what our favorite part was...
  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at Mountain Peek! We relaxed, slept late (oh my!), enjoyed each others company, talked and laughed, oh and ate lots and lots!
Alternatively, my favorite parts of our stay were doing absolutely nothing, walking our dogs, relaxing and laughing with my family and driving down the mountain knowing I was going to the drive in. I absolutely love going to the drive in! Possibly though my most favorite part was sitting on the porch knowing I had purposefully left my laptop at home and could not work!
The cabin was nice, clean and had many amenities! Even a rice pack for heating up for one us who had a few aches and pains!
Thanks for a great place for our vacation!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you all enjoyed yourselves at Mountain Peek Cabin. The drive-in that you all went to is one of the last remaining drive-ins in the country. Lots of fun! And even though we have Wi-fi available at the cabin for computers, it is nice sometimes to leave some technology at home and get back to nature.
As far as amenities go, we try to have the cabin as comfortable and convenient as home. Many families come up to cook their Thanksgiving dinners right in our kitchen.
Hope to see you all again and tell all your friends and family about us too.

Thank you!

ROZENBERG FAMILY

We had a long weekend at the cabin, location, view from cabin was good. Few things I want to mention for future guests: the beds were very uncomfortable, we had a back pain after sleeping all 3 nights, also the linens were all in delipidated stages.
I would wash or change the mats on the dining table also. So over all I would rate this cabin as 3 star.

Owner's Response: Thank you for visiting Mountain Peek Cabin in the Blue Ridge area of the North Georgia Mountains. We are so very happy to share our mountain getaway with visitors from Florida, New York, Louisiana, Illinois, Germany (!), and points in between and beyond. Most of our inquiries come from VRBO.com and Home Away.com....and would definitely recommend them to other home owners who are looking to set up a rental program.
I'm glad you all were able to enjoy our wonderful mountain views. THAT's what its all about in my opinion when I travel to the cabin. I pull out my binoculars (which are available for renters too) and look for wildlife, deer, birds, etc...especially in the mornings with coffee.
Also, we enjoy going into town and walking through the antique shops and furniture stores as well. We found the rustic split log bed (which is brand new by the way) at a local merchants....It really sets the tone for a quaint log cabin in the mountains.
As you will see, looking at all the reviews, we have had many(many)happy renters over the years and several returns as well. Your comfort and satisfaction is our utmost concern. Hope to see you again on the books in the future!
