Main level BR with queen bed, upper level bedroom king bed, upper level bedroom queen bed, lower level queen sleeper sofa. 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.

About Sandy & Al Powell, owners

Hi,

We are Al and Sandy Powell. Here you see us with our 4 children. We love the outdoors whether it be the mountains or the beach, deep sea fishing or hiking. We are now working on building our third cabin!

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.

BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5

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.

Was extremely disappointed. Pictures were deceiving, asked for a refund but didn't get it.

  • 1 of 5

The road to cabin was very steep, bumpy and tires were sliding, a 4 wheel drive is almost necessary. If it had rained we would never have made it to the cabin. There wasnt enough room for 2 cars on the road there either. The rooms were tiny and there was a musty and stinky odor in the cabin. The beds were awfully hard and one in the loft wasn't accessible from both sides because it was right under the rafters. No tv's in BR except one and it was old and outdated. Broken doorknobs, lights blown. Small TV'S not widescreen as advertised, positively no views as advertised. We ended up leaving and forfeiting 2 days because it was so miserable. Will not use this place or owner again.

Owner's Response: This was the most difficult gust we have ever had. Perspective guests will need to look at other guest reviews. Guest was upset there was not a TV in every bedroom. TV's are 38" and 42", with two of them only 1-2 years old. Mattresses are new medium firm. Two under cabinet kitchen lights were out and the maintenance man replaced them the same day.

Cozy, picturesque cabin in the Blue Ridge Mtns

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is cozy and warm. Even though there are other properties in the area, You feel as though you are away from the entire world. We had 2 small children and 4 adults and never felt crowded. There was always plenty of space indoors, and MORE than enough outdoors. The owners spare nothing in amenities. The hot tub worked beautifully and the game table was the perfect distraction for children. The kitchen was well-appointed and the firepit was the perfect way to end any day. Blue Ridge, Ga, is quaint but has any modern convenience you could want. The downtown has that "Andy of Mayberry" feel. The owners are obviously proud of their property...and it shows.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (parents and 4 young adult children) from MN, St Louis, and WV stayed at Antler Get Away late May in order to check on/ visit with aging parents living about 35 minutes outside of Blue Ridge and other family members who have a cabin closer to Ellijay. Antler Get Away was in the perfect location for this. The cabin was well maintained, comfortable and very clean. There were plenty of rooms and bathrooms for all of us to return to at night to relax. Appreciated all of the information the Powells sent to us before the visit. We did eat out several meals in Blue Ridge (favorites - Blue Ridge Brewery and Tocoa Riverside), hike the short but lovely hike to Falls Branch Falls, enjoy the Arts in the Park with our group and did spend time on Carter's Lake. Enjoyed the hot tub, but because of schedules and other obligations did not make a fire outdoors even though there appeared to be plenty of firewood. The screened porches were very nice. The rocking chairs were in high demand, perhaps 1 or 2 more would be nice. It took about 5/6 minutes to go up or down road to cabin and it is curvy and steep in several places, but this cabin is in the beautiful N GA mountains. Roads in the mountains tend to be steep and curvy. We have been on roads up there that are much longer and steeper. Our rented mini van and a child's small Ford Fiesta made it up and down just fine. The cabin is a log cabin and not very sound proof. This might make the cabin better for families or 1 couple rather than 2 couples spending the weekend together. The online pictures were very representative of the cabin. Because of the location near Blue Ridge and the fairly quick in and out we would definitely stay here again with our family.

Relaxing home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We have stayed here many times and it feels like home. Everything you need is here: cable, internet xbox,, dishes, silverware, all the comforts of home. We can tell the owners take pride in the cabin. Just a phone call away if you need them. Relaxing, peaceful atmosphere. Grocery stores, etc, are very close. Downtown Blue Ridge is a pleasant place to walk and shop. Amicalola Falls is breathtaking. Can't wait for our next visit!
