About the property

Sunrock Lodge is a beautiful private and unique mountain cabin with 4 master suites overlooking the town of Blue Ridge, GA and the Blue Ridge mountains. This new in 2006 3,372 square foot home has all of the amenities necessary for a memorable retreat, vacation or business meeting. Sunrock Mountain is between the towns of Blue Ridge, GA and McCaysville, TN putting you in the middle of all of the amenities of the Blue Ridge area.

Four bedroom rental homes in Blue Ridge are rare. You will not find a rental home in Blue Ridge with four master suites each of which has its own private bathroom and large walk-in closet. EVERY room in the home enjoys the same spectacular view. Our guests appreciate the convenience of upper and lower paved driveways to facilitate access. Sunrock Lodge is a great location for the perfect corporate retreat or small group meeting.

In addition to its incredible view, this home has the best of amenities. The two upstairs suites feature high vaulted ceilings. The main floor master suite has a stacked stone fireplace, a massive king size cedar bed and sliding glass door access to the main deck. The cozy downstairs suite enjoys close proximity to the game room and ultimate privacy. There are many areas in the Lodge for the kids to put our their sleeping bags, inside and out. Every room has a high-end ceiling fan to add to the ambiance and keep you comfortable 24/7.

Sunrock Lodge has 900 square feet of decking, 830 feet of which is covered. The main deck runs the entire length of the Lodge on the East side overlooking the Mercier Orchard with the town of Blue Ridge in the foreground. The side deck is screened and features an outdoor wood burning fireplace and a six seat Dynasty Excalibur Series SPA.

The breathtaking great room has a vaulted thirty foot ceiling featuring ceiling to floor glass. You will be hard pressed to resist spending relaxing time in the large leather recliners in our lounge above the great room with the uninterrupted mountain views through the upper great room windows. Sun rises and moon rises viewed from Sunrock Lodge are indescribable. Our lodge manual has solar and lunar tables so that you will not miss any of nature's action.

This exquisitely decorated mountain lodge will warm your heart and cause you to want to return over and over. Our setting is one of the quietest natural places you will ever visit. We feature a working antique clock in every room of the Lodge. Privacy is paramount on a 1.5 acre lot with no manmade structures impeding your view to the horizon and parts of three states. The Mountain View is breathtaking and it is the principal feature of EVERY room in the Lodge.

Our goal is to provide a four diamond experience that exceeds typical rental properties. Our guests have responded positively to our significant investments in luxury appointments, appliances, finishes and amenities. Please check our guestbook for guest evaluations and comments.

Sunrock Mountain is an exclusive private development with no through traffic. The noisiest thing you will hear is the songs of the birds during the day and the mountain circadian at night.

September 2007 update: The entire surround sound entertainment system has been replaced with a new Panasonic 50' flat panel plasma TV and a new Bose Lifestyle 38 surround sound system. Don't forget to bring your DVDs.

About Ray Snead

My name is Ray Snead. I am the owner of Sunrock Lodge. I have spent the majority of my career in healthcare finance. I do interim CFO consulting in healthcare. This work allows me to live for periods in different parts of the country experiencing their climates and cultures for several months at a time. I have been married to my only wife for 38 years and we have two grown, maried children. One is an attorney and the other is in high level security.

When not working, we enjoy spending time at Sunrock Lodge, hiking and shooting sports.

Ray Snead purchased this house in 2007

Why Ray Snead chose North Georgia Mountains

We visited Blue Ridge a number of times before we were introduced to Sunrock Lodge by a realtor. The Lodge was under construction at the time and when we saw it, we were struck speechless by the views and the solitude of Sunrock's private location. We did not know you could get views like Sunrock's in GA, we thought you had to go to NC or TN to get views like this. We were also very favorably impressed by the proximity of Sunrock to the city of Blue Ridge and the local hospital. Many of the cabins listed in Blue Ridge are a long way out of town.

We like the town of Blue Ridge. It is a true resort community. Unlike many small towns, Blue Ridge is growing with significant investment in the downtown area by a variety of merchants bringing food, entertainment and shopping opportunities. Many people come to Blue Ridge its scenic railroad or the many shows and festivals that are regularly held in the downtown area.

What makes this house unique

We do not get to use Sunrock Lodge nearly as much as we would like. When we go there, the most enjoyable thing we do is spend time on the main deck. We have never been able to fully take in the view and the overwhelming sense of what David was trying to capture when he wrote Psalms 8. We have a wonderful lounge in the upper center of the lodge that allows us to enjoy the view from side by side leather recliners regardless of the weather.

We enjoy taking a walk over the mountain. This is strenous exercise but it leaves us feeling relaxed and refreshed. After a walk and many evenings, we enjoy time in the SPA on our screened side porch. In the winter, we build a fire in the outside fireplace and enjoy the cooler temperatures while sitting in front of a toasty fire.

A few months back, I replaced the grill with a new stainless, gourmet grill. We like to cook out and do it as often as we can.

We spend a lot of hours sitting in the great room listening to the gentle ticking of Sunrock's antique wall clock.

Although, it's hard for us to draw ourselves away from the nature elements of Sunrock, we sometimes retreat to our game room where you find a 50' flat screen high definition TV hooked up to a Bose Lifestyle surround sound system. It's ability to produce DVD's is awsome. We also have a professional quality pool table and a game table with a chess set, card games and a few board games available.

We like to host friends at Sunrock. We have a gourmet kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances and everything you would ever need to cook anything you can think of. Jo Ann saw to that. We and many of our guests have created many a memory in our kitchen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our group of 8 friends take a couple of weekend trips a year. We chose Sunrock from the photos the owner, Ray Snead, had shared on VRBO. The photos did not compare to the actual cabin. The cabin was perfect!!! The setting has a wonderful view over Mercier Orchards and Blue Ridge. It looks (and feels) like you are a world away from the hustle and bustle. In reality, the cabin is a very short drive into town. The cabin itself did not disappoint. We enjoyed sitting around the large table for breakfast each morning, and sitting on the screened in porch with the fire place and hot tub in the evenings. The bedrooms offered very comfy beds and clean well appointed bathrooms. The temperature of the cabin was perfect for those of us who like to be cool. From the front door to every tiny crevice in the cabin we found it to be extremely clean and well taken care of. The owners were very easy to work with and helpful. Even when it took 2 phone calls assisting us to locate the cabin. As we left the cabin we decided Sunrock will be put on our list to visit again one day - the sooner the better.

Owner's Response: This is the kind of experience we strive to create. Renting someone's home when you have not been there before is a leap of faith. We are honored that this family chose us for their time in the mountains and we are looking forward to seeing them again very soon.

Beautiful, peaceful getaway. Loved the sunrise.

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was well equipped for our group of 6 but there was no dish soap for washing dishes by hand. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds comfortable but the placement of the entry door and the bathroom door was awkward. There was no extra roll of toilet paper for the main floor master bathroom. The grates on the gas grill need replacing and some of the screens on the screened in porch have come loose and are in need of repair. Lastly, the eagle sculpture on the coffee table is a true work of art, but it blocked the view of both the TV and the magnificent view of the mountains for anyone sitting on the large comfortable leather sectional.

Absolutely perfect weekend getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of four couples looking for a cabin getaway not too far from Atlanta and this was a great choice for us. We took advantage of the cabin in its entirety using all the fireplaces, the hot tub, the porch, the game area, the spectacular living/dining/kitchen and all four bed/bathrooms. The cabin was spotless and the binder of instructions was everything we needed and more. We drove about 25 minutes for a hike Saturday afternoon, but otherwise soaked up every minute and meal in the cabin enjoying one another's company. We struggled just a tad finding the cabin (a cabin name sign down at the Y intersection would be super helpful) but once there guided each other in over the phone. Cell and wifi worked perfectly. I can't say enough great things about our experience other than to say we hope we can come back soon!
