There are an amazing variety and number of activities and attraction near the cabin in the Blue Ridge Area. Following is just a short sample but I encourage all interested parties to spend sometime exploring what the area has on offer.
Without getting in your car you can access Lake Blue Ridge and the Aska Trail System without getting in your car. The tocoa river is a short drive away and great for a fun after of floating down in a tube.
Hiking and mountain biking galore, including the Appalachian and the Benton MacKaye
Fishing, boating, Jet Skiing, tubing, whitewater rafting--Lake Blue Ridge, Toccoa River, Ocoee River
Horseback riding, golf, mountain biking, gem and gold panning
Antiquing--Blue Ridge has been called the antique capital of GA, and Ellijay, with its charming roundabout (instead of the typical courthouse square), has its share, too
Swan Drive-In Theater, one of the few remaining today, operating since 1955
Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, on which you can take a narrated ride from Blue Ridge to the twin cities of McKaysville GA and Copperhill TN and stand with one foot in GA and one in TN--marked with a big blue line painted through the IGA Grocery parking lot
Apple businesses where you can view the process from orchard to grocery bag, tour the facilities, shop for apple-themed goods and goodies, and try one of the area's delights: the fried pie! Ellijay is known as the apple capital of GA
Wonderful local restaurants--just a few: the Toccoa Riverside, where on weekend nights a duet of two elderly, overall-clad bluegrass pickers entertain; the Pink Pig in Cherry Log, President Jimmy Carter's favorite BBQ joint; Colonel Poole's BBQ in Ellijay, where the hillside is decorated with a giant outline of a pig compiled of hundreds of plywood pigs naming past patrons (some celebrities)
Festivals throughout the year: for example, Apple Festival, Sorghum Festival, Prater's Mill Festival, GA Mountain Fair (demonstrations of old-times mountain practices), Rhododendron Festival, Bluegrass Festival, Dahlonega's Gold Rush Days
Numerous state parks, national parks, and national forests, each with its own amenities, activities, and gorgeous scenery
Marked scenic drives/highways, almost all with scenic pull-overs and overlooks, especially important during our gorgeous autumn 'leaf-gawking' season
Countless waterfalls, one of which (Amicalola) is the tallest cascading falls east of the Mississippi; in the cabin are a pamphlets with descriptions and directions to 11 falls in the area--all of which we've hiked to--only a couple are strenuous treks
A short drive from the cabin is the longest suspension bridge east of the Mississippi, a very short and easy hike brings you to where it crosses the Toccoa River
A little further away is Tallulah Falls and Gorge, the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi.
Many other sights within a short drive, such as Brasstown Bald, the highest point in GA, Dahlonega's Gold Museum, the Alpine town of Helen
Also available in-cabin from outside sources are such services as massage and gourmet chef
Blue Ridge, Aska Trails, Amicalola Falls State Park, Ocoee Whitewater Area, Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, Cooper Creek Recreation Area, Cohutta Wilderness, Dahlonega, Vogel State Park, Unicoi State Park, Big Frog Wildelife Area, Nantahala National Forest and Whitewater Area, Fort Mountain, Chattanooga, Helen, Great Smoky Mountains National Park
My husband is a management consultant that spends too much traveling away from his family and friends so he bought this wonderful property as way to bring the people I miss together. I enjoy sharing our home with you and please to help you with your decision making and trip planning process.
Mark Landry purchased this cabin in 5
My father- in law actually saw it first. He called us over excited about the 'feeling' of this place and it's views. We were traveling overseas but decided right then to go ahead and buy it. He spends alot of time visiting and caring for the home like his own.
Once you get into the relaxed mountain mode its hard to leave and the rest of the world feels far away.

We had friends over from Scotland that came with us to this cabin, breathtaking views from the deck, there was something for everyone to do at the cabin, on the lake and in Blue Ridge itself. The cabin itself was gorgeous, none of us wanted to leave our lovely Blue Ridge Bubble of a holiday, fantastic location, will definitely be coming back!

It was the perfect place to house our family for the week. The owners are very much involved in making sure everything is in good working order. It is very clean and well maintained. Location is great a central location close to many activities. I would definitely will plan another vacation in this cabin. Thanks to Mark and Liz Landry for hollowing us to stay in their home.
Coffee and sunrise over the mountains every morning... everything else was just as wonderful. The cabin & décor was very clean and beautiful. We had plenty of room to kick back and relax. There was a TV in every room but we weren't there to watch TV. Great location as we also took a couple of day trips (Helen & Cherokee).
Only had one question and they quickly texted me back within 15 minutes.
It was a wonderful week with "the girls" and we will be back.
This was our first family trip to the mountains, and this cabin was everything we could have asked for! They recently updated the televisions throughout the cabin, and my girls really enjoyed the hot tub. The fire pit may have been my favorite feature, as it really was a great place to sit around and enjoy s'mores! The town of Blue Ridge is about 15 minutes away, and it had all of the stores we needed. The roads were clear and paved, although a little daunting for this Floridian:) My teens spent every night playing poker on the downstairs table. The view is absolutely breathtaking, and we never heard any of the neighbors. I plan on staying here again in the future!
This was our second visit to this cabin, and it was once again exactly what we were looking for. The new fire pit area is an improvement to an already great place. And you couldn't ask for better hosts. I look forward to my next stay here.
