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.

This is my first cabin rental and i must say that I really enjoyed myself. We rented the cabin for Valentines Day weekend and we had such a good time that we have decided to make this a yearly Valentine's Day weekend retreat. The cabin was beautiful and the mountain views were breathe taking.

This was our first visit to the Blue Ridge area and we had a very memorable family mini vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was absolutely adorable. When walking in ir was truly a warm feeling from the smell of the cinnamon pine cones and the country home decor. The cabin had everything we needed, all your cooking utensils, dishes, washer dryer with laundry soap and dryer sheets. It really had everything we needed but our groceries. The kids and adults as wel as our dogs had a great time. The only downfall was that the trees were still loaded with leaves and the mountain view was a bit obstructed. Other than that we were completely satisfied. Sandy was amazing helping us plan our trip with so many fun things to do with all the information she shared with us. The drive up the mountain seemed a little scary the first trip up but after that we had no problems and we were in a mini van. Thanks for a great vacation Antler Ridge!!

Great Time in Blue Ridge

  • 5 of 5

My son, his wife, two kids, two in-laws and two dogs spent the labor day weekend at Antler Ridge Getaway. The cabin is very comfortable and attractive with plenty of room. We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the decks with a fire in the fire pit making smores and telling stories. Sunday was spent kayaking down the Toccoa River from Curtis Switch to Horseshoe Bend Park, a trip of seven miles with beautiful weather and great scenery.

We have been very familiar with Antler Ridge Getaway and Sandy and Al Powell, the owners, provided everything needed. They were very responsive to our needs. We plan on staying again next summer.

Really great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place, way up on the ridge with a beautiful view of the valley. The two decks are the stars - huge! One screened, one not, wonderful to just hang out and enjoy or play some games. House is in great shape, well appointed, lots of space. Bit of a drive up the gravel road, but well worth it. Owners were very responsive before our visit, gave up plenty of tips on things to do.

Some excellent wineries reasonably close. A few really good restauarants in Blue Ridge. Definitely take the drive to Amicolola falls, great hike and view.

Great getaway, highly recommend.

Comfortable, cute and cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely week at Antler Ridge Getaway. It was a wonderful and relaxing time feeling like we were in a tree house when on the upper and lower porches. We spent a lot of time on the porches and outside enjoying the deck and walking the property with our Corgi. We loved the hot tub in the evenings watching the sunsets and reveling in the scenery surrounding the cabin.

We would have been content just being in and around the cabin each day but the surrounding area offers so much to do. We went to the Toccoa River Swinging Bridge, Fall Branch Falls on the Benton MacKaye Trail, Amicalola Falls State Park, downtown Blue Ridge and Mercier Orchards. We also recommend Fightingtown Tavern in Blue Ridge and The Pink Pig in Ellijay.

We look forward to returning to this cabin and to Blue Ridge - hopefully next year in September or October so we can see the area when the trees are in Autumn color.
