About Bud Ketterl
We're a family of four, my wife and I have a son and a daughter in high school. We moved to Knoxville, TN from the Atlanta metro area two years ago with a job opportunity. We have been rescuing German Shepherd Dogs over the last 20 years and currently have three. We spent almost twenty years in the Acworth, GA area before heading to Knoxville. Before that, my wife and I grew up in Connecticut. We met in high school and then again later in life when we started dating. We've just celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary this past June.
Bud Ketterl purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Bud Ketterl chose Blue Ridge
Our family purchased the cabin a few years ago after renting it for several years before that. We fell in love with the cabin and its amazing views, the town of Blue Ridge, its natural beauty, the people and all there is to do there. We hope to retire in Blue Ridge eventually, it is just a whole new way of life there.

We enjoyed 'Above the Clouds' immensely. The weather started rough up in the clouds which kept us mainly indoors, but that is where the house really came through. Lots to do between the hot tub, pool, or even sitting out on the covered decks. The house is truly well appointed. We did a lot of cooking, and I was a little worried about the pots and pans situation, but they have virtually everything one might need to include crockpots, muffin tins, griddles, etc. We were not lacking.
The linens were very nice and plentiful. The beds were comfortable. And the gas fireplace was a nice feature for those rainy nights.
The town of Blue Ridge was a nice little town and there were a number of things to do there besides going for hikes in the local area and the local vineyards. Overall, the nicest rental we have used, and we have rented all over the country from FL, NC, UT, and others. If we decide to go back to Blue Ridge, we would definitely try to get 'Above the Clouds' again.
Property was in tip top shape as always - thxs Bud
Great cabin fully supplied just show up and enjoy the view!!
Beautiful views and abundant space!
We had a group of 9 adults, all comfortably fit and it never felt cramped. The amount of outdoor space on the porches is wonderful! It feels very private even though cabins are nearby. House was very clean upon arrival and kitchen had everything we needed to cook. Would definitely recommend!
Great cabin and location.
We were 8 guests at the cabin and had plenty of room for group activities as well as quiet areas. The cabin was well maintained and Bud was quick to address any concerns. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a quiet getaway with a lot of options for local dining and site seeing. Thanks again Bud!
Thank you for the review, Brad. Glad you enjoyed yourself.
The cabin is great and offers many different types of spaces to be able to spread out and enjoy. From the game room with pool table, arcade game, and X-box to the different deck spaces, to the fire pit you can easily enjoy each other's company and at the same time get some private time to yourself. We even enjoyed a few hours playing the hook and ring toss game on the upper deck with a cold beverage. Just one more individual touch the owner has included to add to the list of things to do while enjoying the cabin during rainy weather. I've stayed at many a cabin and have never seen this 'seemingly" simple amenity. The View is spectacular and offers dozens of different snapshots depending on the sun and time of day. We found the drive up to be a fun adventure and while the road was rough and steep in some places never did we feel nervous about the drive. We spent the nice days exploring the town and hiking while also being perfectly content to hang around the cabin all day during the rainy days. Already looking forward to our next stay here! Thanks Bud and family for offering up such a nice place.
Thanks so much for the review!
We had a fantastic time!
The property is amazing! My two kids and I had a great time! The view is awesome!
Glad you guys had a great time!
