Located at 3,000 ft. alt. and on 2.5 + acres, only 06 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge & 60 minutes from Atlanta. The area is filled with nearby family activities.

Antler Ridge Getaway : The cabin is a true log cabin, located near the top of Laurel Ridge Mountain (3,000 elevation) in Blue Ridge, Georgia. The three bedrooms are spacious with queen beds (main level & upper level) in two and king bed (upper level) in the third. One of the full baths is located on the main level across from the queen bed bedroom and the other on the upper level between the master bedroom and the second queen bed bedroom. The Rec Room offers a new queen sleeper sofa with box spring mattress. The Getaway is on a no hunt/ no shoot mountain so wildlife abounds. The deer and wild turkey love to stop and watch as guests relax by the fire pit or on the decks.

The Getaway is on 2.5 plus acres, secluded and has mountain views of Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee. Unlike may cabins near the top of mountain, the Getaway has plenty of level land for children/pets/family to walk around, run and play with no sudden drop offs. It is not in a gated community, nor do you have close neighbors, yet you do not feel totally isolated. The Benton MacKaye Trail, which connects to the Appalachian Trail, is also a short walk from the cabin. A mountain stream is at the foot of our mountain and run along the Benton MacKaye Trail. Downtown Blue Ridge, with its wonderful shops and antiquing, is about 6 minutes away and features Blue Grass bands performing on the square throughout the year, carriage rides and a Farmers’ Market on Saturdays. Downtown Ellijay is about 10 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you!! Very nice cabin! Perfect for a long weekend getaway. We enjoyed the hot tub and making a fire in the outside firepit. Roasted marshmallows-yum!! Played a lot of basketball. The kids really enjoyed the sports table in the downstairs rec room--especially the air hockey. We grilled out a lot and visited some good restaurants.

It is the perfect place to escape the real world

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the the rain. There is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy something and relax. Sandy is a tremendous host with plenty of information to keep the family entertained through your stay. Even in the rain, the family was able to sit on the porch and play cards, complete puzzles at the dining room table, and have some serious pool competitions in the rec room. I highly recommend this place.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a very nice time during our Spring Break stay at this very cozy cabin. It is located very close to the town of Blue Ridge and everything the area has to offer. It is private enough though that you feel you are a million miles away. The kids had a great time exploring the mountain and hiking to nearby water falls. The cabin is well equipped and we enjoyed grilling out and roasting marshmallows by the outdoor fire pit. The owners are wonderful to work with and supply all the information you need to make the most of your time while visiting the area. We can't wait to come back!

Beautiful Cabin and wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spend 4 nights at this cabin during our honeymoon and loved this beautiful cabin with screened in porches, pool table, jacuzzi and fireplace. This cabin is on an awesome mountainside with a view of the mountain range in the distance and is surrounded by an older forest of Pine and Oak trees. The owners were very easy to work with and the cabin amenities were what you would expect at a nice hotel. We were also able to bring our 2 dogs and they were very comfortable.

Great cabin and wonderful outdoor space!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cabin. It is a true log cabin, rustic with plenty of personal touches. Our favorite part was the exceptional outdoor space. The owners provided great communication about the local area, things to do, info about the cabin, etc. Definitely recommend.

Great place for a family get away!

  • 5 of 5

Great family get away! The owners of this property do a fantastic job making sure you feel at home. There was plenty of room for my husband and I and our 4 teenage children. The cabin is located between two sweet little towns that have great shops, art, antiques and food.

We loved the hot tub on the porch that over looked the mountain and the fire pit area. The kids played basketball, had pool tournaments, and hiked. So nice not to see their heads buried in their phones!

We will definitely be booking again in the summer.
