We bought this cabin when we were a family of four for weekend getaways. When we added our puppy to our family he loved it too so we opened our rentals to include small dogs.
J. Leal purchased this cabin in 2006
We choose this cabin because of the view from the decks and the bed in the master bedroom. It is a 90 minute drive from Atlanta and easy for Florida visitors to get to.
The five minute drive to Morganton beach is great, and the clear skies while relaxing in the hot tub awesome.
What an amazing week! we couldnt have asked for a better pacle to share our honeymoon! we enjoyed the cozy fireplaces, a nice game of scrabble and a couple of movies! Window shopping downtown was an adventure, we did not expect the Christmas crowds. we highly recommend the Blue Ridge Brewery for a nice meal and a delicious pumpkin ale. we also took a short hike over the suspension bridge over the Toccoa. It was relaxing, of course we couldnt miss Merciers orchards. I just ate a piece of applie pie for breakfast- yum!
Overall, a fine stay. Everything in the cabin was in good working order. Basement level is not finished but had a games area and a man-cave like TV watching set-up. Really, very remote.
We really enjoyed the cabin, minor issue was the internet that we had to reset all the time & the faucet in the kitchen that leaks. It didn't take away from the good time we had, will visit again!
We were very happy with the Ashryn Lodge and were able to enjoy so many of the Blue Ridge attractions. We went to Mercier's Orchards and enjoyed some great REAL cider, as well as fried pies... The downtown area was so much fun with many different places to eat, and tons of little shops. The area around the cabin was so quiet and there was no one else around to interrupt the never-ending views and natural beauty. We enjoyed the hot tub and both fire places that are a part of Ashryn Lodge. Jeremy, the owner, was very helpful with a few questions that we had. He is very responsive and you can tell that he takes very good care of his home. Our deposit was returned quickly, and we plan on returning soon; maybe we will bring the pups next time!
This cabin holds a special place in my heart! Always clean and always inviting! The owners are quick to reply and explain any questions you may have!
The cabin was the perfect size for the two of us and our dog. We enjoyed the quiet of the mountains and time away from our busy lives. The abundance of hiking trails and waterfalls within close driving distance was awesome. Local BBQ, drive-in and Mercier orchard were added treats to the trip! Would definitely go back and have already recommended the cabin to friends.
This was our first family vacation in several years. We found the cabin to be exactly as pictured and described! The cabin, although on a hidden road with a few other cabins, was extremely quiet, private and tranquil. We didn't see anyone the entire time we were there. The views of the sunrise in the morning with a cup o joe in hand, were priceless, so peaceful and calm. The kitchen was surprisingly well stocked. We thoroughly enjoyed and recommend, horse back riding, Mercier's orchards, kayaking, Anna Ruby Falls. We found Helen to be a bit corny but many others highly recommended to us. Local restaurants were fantastic and the local grocery was very close and convenient. The cabin was also very clean and I appreciated that it wasn't cluttered with decorations. We would highly recommend! Only downside was the 10 hour drive to get there!! Thank you for a wonderful vacation that we all will remember for many years to come!
