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 cabin...in 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.

Enjoyed it!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed this cabin a bunch! The owner is very nice & helpful also. This cabin has everything you need to enjoy the mountains with convenient access to both Blue Ridge & Ellijay. It was like being in a tree house & I can only imagine how beautiful it would be in the fall! It is well maintained with many nice amenities. The only things I'd improve on is some type of view of the big mountains in the distance & the gravel road up the hill requires a vehicle with some clearance & needs a bit of work in a few places(this is certainly not the fault of the owners of this property and didn't prohibit us from getting in & out). It was very clean with everything you need to have a fantastic trip to the mountains!

Relaxing cabin on the mountain.

  • 5 of 5

My family of four loved the cabin. The game room was a big hit with my teenage son. My favorite was the main floor porch with cozy rockers. I had time to read and enjoy the view. The cabin is ideally located just a few minutes from Blue Ridge. Sandy, the owner, supplied us with lots of information about the area. We absolutely loved our vacation.

Wonderful experience

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at the cabin. The cabin was well kept and comfortable for 4 teenagers and 4 adults. We visited like call attractions, played games and enjoyed each other's company. My only dislike was the drive up the mountain to the cabin, but the view made up for my fear of heights. Would recommend this cabin for other's. Thank you for sharing your home!

Very old pictures, zero view of mountains!

  • 2 of 5

One of the things that made my wife and I pick this cabin out of the many others we looked at for our yearly vacation was the beautiful view of the mountains. When we arrived at the cabin after almost a 10 hour drive we felt as if we were cheated. There was ZERO view of the mountains unless you walked down the road! The pictures show a nicely taken care of outdoor area which in reality has not had anything done to it in years except blow leaves off the deck. We felt sick and contacted the owner right away with our concerns and were told that trees grow and they can't control the view. I let them know that what they advertised in their pictures was false and we would have gladly driven the 10 hours back home since we could have had the same view of trees anywhere in Ohio. Live and learn, ask how old the pictures are of anywhere you are going to stay! The pictures of this cabin in my opinion are at LEAST 5 years old. Would not return even for HALF the cost.

Owner's Response: Guest was made aware that we update the inside and outside of the cabin every year. There were very heavy rains and flooding in the area the entire week before and day before their arrival. While most owners do not have a landscaped sitting area with mulch, we mulch every six months. Guests were told about the rains and that we were mulching again. The current view is from the upper screened porch, however, we are on the tree surgeons list for improving the view, which we do every two years. Hope to have this completed within two weeks. I never told the guest that we could not control the view. Guest was told that some of the current photos are only 6 months old, while other photos are three years old AND guest told we scheduled the photographer, once again, three weeks ago. You will have to read other guest reviews. This guest was very difficult and stated if I did not refund his money he would make my life miserable and make sure he left a terrible review.

Antler Ridge Getaway Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by all of the amenities, this cabin comes with everything needed for a great vacation. It was clean, and comfy. Actually, after sleeping on the master bed for week, we're going home to replace our own with the same brand! It was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in!

We loved how close it was to so many places we wanted to visit while we were in town, and how great it was to be able to bring our dog.

The service was top notch, and we would recommend this home to anyone!!

Can't wait to come again!!!
