About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, Sleeps up to 7

Located in the outreaches of town, “Mystic Ridge” sits atop a hillside on the border between Blairsville in Union County, GA and the quaint little college town of Young Harris, Towns County, GA. It’s remote enough to be removed from any traffic and noise, yet rests just beyond the gates of a private community of custom luxury log homes, with conveniences and shopping within a short 10 to 15 minute drive. Nearby there are any number of activities and sights worth visiting in the area, none the least of which is pristine lakes of Nottely & Lake Chatuge, which are TVA regulated reservoirs designed as a recreational lake for fishing, boating and water sports.

Experience the mystique of “Mystic Ridge” : Each room has its own special theme & offers unexpected amenities & warming touches. The stunning views are visible from the covered porches; great-room or even better; from the custom made king size bed, elevated to allow an unobstructed view from between your toes every morning; with the added luxury of taking your coffee out on the private screened-in porch & sharing some of the most awesome sunsets you’ll ever see.

With 3 bedrooms & baths, one on each level, there's privacy for all & yet lots of open space in the great-room on the main level & the game room below. Also located on the lower level, is the playful and fun-themed “Bunkroom” with a full size bed below and a twin above, and a full bath. The rooms on the main level are open to the cathedral ceilings above, as is the upper loft. The bedroom on the main has a comfy queen bed and the convenience of access to open living areas, bath and kitchen on the same level.

A Plan for Relaxing & Entertaining: The Game room is complete with every amenity, full size Pool Table, fully equipped kitchen & drop-down “chuck wagon” style table & benches for dining or playing games. There’s a comfy seating area centered around the stacked stone/ gas log fireplace, with large flat-screen HD/TV mounted above & DVD/ stereo equipment & speakers built into little niches in the stone. Just outside on the lower patio, there’s a luxurious Hot Tub with towel cart, dry bar & seating with steps leading up to the upper level barbecue/picnic area.

Entertaining is a dream come true, with a variety of settings from the porches & decks & Hot Tub, to the open patio/barbecue area off the side of the house with gas grill; perfect for open-pit fireside seating. 'Smores anyone? For additional ambiance and safety, there are little courtesy lights all along the steps & outdoor seating areas of the decks, patio & porches. We've just paved the drive and added WiFi to make your stay even better!

Area Amusements : Convenient to whitewater rafting and kayaking just over the border in nearby Tennessee or North Carolina as well as unlimited water activities on Lake Nottely in Blairsville or Lake Chatuge in Hiawasse. Other nearby attractions are tubing in Helen, Cabbage Patch Doll Factory in Cleveland and Horsebackriding in Blairsville. You can pan for gems or gold or tour gold mines in historic Dahlonega; Hike the near-by Appalachian Trail, Tour the Vineyards of either of 2 area Wineries, visit scenic Vogel Park, Helton Falls, Ana Ruby Falls and many others, or Brasstown Bald, the highest mountain in Georgia. Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds, home of the famous Fall Festival, is located just 20 minutes away.

There's no place like home, except Mystic Ridge

  • 5 of 5

We have a family tradition of renting a cabin for the week of Thanksgiving in the Georgia/North Carolina/Tennessee area. We rent a different cabin each year as life is too short to do the same thing twice, but after our stay at Mystic Ridge our philosophy has changed. We found heaven and there is no reason to look elsewhere! The cabin is so incredibly beautiful and has every amenity that you could think of. My husband and I like to do a lot of cooking and baking while on our annual Thanksgiving trip as there is so little time on a daily basis to cook fancy meals and baked goods. So every year we pack up about half of our kitchen and take it with us. This year it was a waste of our time as Mystic Ridge has more kitchen gadgets, pots, pans, baking necessities and utensils then we have ever had. We were in heaven and we left all of our items unpacked in their totes and stuck them in the closet (which, btw, this cabin has tons of closet space!). We were overwhelmed by all of the thought that has gone into making this cabin a true "home". The decor is so incredibly beautiful and professional (they must have used a decorator or they are very talented!). Every item that you could possibly need is available (games, DVDs, books, outdoor games such as horseshoes and football, a first aid kit, kitchen gadgets, dishes and serving trays galore and even wonderfully cozy throw blankets on the couches!). The beds are so comfortable and there are enough pillows and blankets to sleep an army! The pool table is a professional grade table and the hot tub even has a multi-color light!! The fire pit and deck have an amazing view and the wrap around porch has so many comfortable chairs that you can sit in a different chair every time you are out there enjoying the peace and quite and fresh mountain air. This cabin is far and above the most beautiful cabin that we have ever had the pleasure of calling "home" for a week. And to top it all off it is located in a beautiful area of Georgia with so many things to do...horseback riding, hiking, water falls, museums, a miniature railroad exhibit that is a must see, a vineyard and plenty of small towns with excellent restaurants and shopping. "There is no place like home" except possibly Mystic Ridge!

WOW WOW WOW This was an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to be able to stay an extra day because we could not get enough of the view, the fire pit, the hot tub and the amazing decor. If I could build and decorate my own mountain home it would be exactly like this one. We needed a break from work and this fit the bill to a T. Days were spent on the deck absorbing the great view and fresh mountain air. Nights were spent by the fire pit or in the hot tub or in front of one of the fireplaces. It's definitely a place I would love to bring friends and family sometime. Robbyn and her staff did an excellent job of taking care of everything and making the rental process go smoothly. HIGHLY recommended!!

The best weekend get away with friends!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Mystic Ridge for Fall Break and had the best time. I didn't leave the property once while we were there for 3 days. You can stay entertained with the porch, the pool table, the hot tub, and games. The place is stocked with everything you could need in the kitchen - a great selection of cookware and tons of spices! We would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing weekend.

Simply Beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went on our vacation to the mountains alone, without any of our 8 kids, for the 1st time and we couldn't have picked a better location and cabin. Our family have been going to the Smokey mountains for over 20 years and Mystic Ridge is tops in our book! The cabin itself was perfect and the location had some of the best views ever! We will be coming back to the area and this particular cabin again, soon! Thanks for making our intimate, romantic vacation get-away one of the best! John & Carmen V.

Located in a quiet gated community of upscale Log homes, this favored retreat is well off the beaten trail but still within 20 minutes of either Blairsville or YoungHarris, where you'll find plenty of shopping, restaurants, entertainment & marinas, Brasstown Resort & Golf Course, and Young Harris College. When you’re ready to head out for some real adventure, there’s plenty to do. Nearby areas offer a variety of attractions within easy driving distance, such as hiking trails, scenic waterfalls, working gold mines where you can pan for gold or gems, go white water rafting, tubing on the river, horseback riding or attend a wine tasting & take the tour at either of the local vineyards. Take the kids to the Cabbage Patch Hospital and see how a Cabbage Patch Baby is born! There’s so much to do, you’ll run out of vacation before you run out of things to do!
