Overview

North Georgia Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms

Why Acorn Ridge Cabin? There are many beautiful cabins in North Georgia but only Acorn Ridge Cabin will help make your getaway exactly like you envisioned it!! Acorn Ridge Cabin gives the special touches to make sure your getaway will be exactly like you envisioned it, including personal recommendations for area activities and restaurants, based on your group size (couples, kids, etc) and requirements. You won't get this level of service from other owners. Acorn Ridge has two bedrooms (queen-size beds in each) plus a giant loft with king-size bed (our favorite room), two baths, a bonus room with pool table and a covered wrap around two level porch. Cabin sleeps six comfortably in beds. Our cabin is situated on a 2+ acre wooded lot, with the privacy you want but the convenience of being just outside of Blue Ridge.

Why Acorn Ridge Cabin?: There are many beautiful cabins in North Georgia but only Acorn Ridge Cabin will help make your getaway exactly like you envisioned it. If you want to just relax at the house, I'll give recommendations on how to best do it. For dining, I'll give my favorite restaurants. For shopping and antiquing, just let me know what you're hunting for and I'll point you in the right direction. No other cabin in North Georgia provides the same level of service.

We invite you to call us (Ken or Amy) to ask questions about cabin, availability, rates, or just about the Blue Ridge area. We know there are many beautiful cabins but few compare to our level of service and responsiveness.

About Ken Crowell

We have 3 kids and wanted to buy a cabin that we could enjoy a lot and then rent when we're not using it. As you can see from our reviews, we take great care of our guests and are very responsive to their questions.

Ken owns a business in Atlanta and Amy works for a non-profit. Our boys (Sam, Nick, in the photo) are now 12 and 10 yrs, along with 6 year old Julianna.

Ken Crowell purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Ken Crowell chose North Georgia Mountains

Blue Ridge is the best little town in North Georgia. It doesn't have the fake tourist feel like Helen. It's a classy little town and the area provides a lot to do for different types of people. If you want to shop and eat, just spend the day in Blue Ridge. If you want to play in the water, hit the lake or go rafting/tubing. If you want to hike, there's plenty of National Forest land to do it. Plus it's an easy 90 minutes from ATL. So you can pop up on a Friday night and stay 2 days without being exhausted from the drive.

Our cabin's size and layout is perfect. If it's just two people, you'll feel right and home and not lost in a cavernous place. If it's two families, each family can stay on a separate floor so the kids can sleep as (if?) needed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a great time at your cabin. We were thrilled with the privacy and weather. We ate in every meal, used the grill and stove. I think my Son and I played about 50 games of pool. I was a hero for leading my family to Acorn Ridge.

Acorn Ridge - great place to relax and enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 3 days with my family here after a long road trip and the cabin was everything we needed and more. Enjoyed the hot tub, playing pool and just enjoying the scenery. Close to everything but still far away for a chilled out time away in the woods. Would love to stay again. Ken was very responsive and place was well stocked and ready to go.

Exceptionally clean and beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful cabin July 7th - 9th, 2016. First of all, the owners are wonderful and it is obvious that they take great pride in their property. Ken was so helpful when I asked for advice on the area! The cabin (I feel it is definitely more of a HOUSE than "cabin") was so clean and the finishes are beautiful. Our family of five was more than comfortable in the three bedrooms and the extra living space in the finished lower level made it even more comfortable. The cabin is tucked into a very wooded area, which makes this setting even more serene and private. While there, we went whitewater rafting and zip lining and found the greatest pizza at Satchel's Pizza in Gainesville. I cannot say enough good things about this rental property. If you are on the fence, I'd say jump on this cabin before it gets away!

great vacation getaway

  • 4 of 5

My grown children met my husband and myself there for a long weekend and had a great time. My son brought his boat and the beautiful lake was only five minutes away. The cabin had three rooms on three different floors giving everyone privacy while sleeping. We enjoyed the hot tub after a day at the lake while the guys grilled dinner. The games were mostly for younger children, but we still put a couple of puzzles together. Really enjoyed shooting pool at night.

Overall, I would recommend this cabin. We made some great memories there.

Perfect place for a family to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many privately owned cabins across the US. This is definitely one of the best. It was extremely clean, had everything we needed to cook while there and even had a good selection of basic pantry staples. Our preteen children were thrilled with the selection of movies, games and the pool table. We all enjoyed the hot tub.

Ken was extremely easy to work with, flexible on our date of departure and willing to answer all questions in a timely manner.

I'd highly recommend this cabin to anyone headed to the Blue Ridge area. It's convenient while still being located in a quiet and very private setting.

Thanks for everything!

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin! We slept in the loft as the bed was bigger and the cabin had everything we needed. Grilling out at night and exploring hiking trails during the day. The cabin is close to town, shopping, and trails. The only complaint we have is the mattress in the loft left us very stiff. Other than that, we loved it and would book again! Response time by the owner was very quick as well. Thank you!

Very nice cabin! The entire place was very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the hot tub and also the pool table. The cabin is very well laid out and spacious. Over all we felt right at home and will definitely stay at this cabin again.

Notes:
Your young children are extremely welcome (we have little ones ourselves). We have games, puzzles and movies for them. The older kids (ie: teens) will be pleased with the internet access and the fact that we get good cell phone reception at the cabin. Older kids also like the pool table. Watching the stars is always a fun activity and you can do it well from our deck. Our guests tells us that no other cabin they've stayed in previously has the level of service that we do. Of course we provide fine linens and towels but also the smaller things, like coffee, hot chocolate and popcorn.
