About James & Cathy Pinkston
James & Cathy live in Cherokee co. We have always been drawn to the mountains. While dating many years ago we talked about having our cabin with an amazing view to enjoy. We made that a reality and love every minute we are able to spend there. We have 3 grown children who still live in the area and look forward to sharing time enjoying all Blue Ridge has to offer!
James & Cathy Pinkston purchased this Cabin in 2014

We've tried to think of everything in order to make it beautiful and comfortable. We offer Nice quality furnishing. Comfortable beds and bedding.

PERFECT BLUE RIDGE CABIN
Great mountain view. Perfect Location. Easy to get to. Had a blast just staying right there exploring around Cherry Log Mountain. Walked all over it. Highly recommend this cabin & cant wait to go back.
This is the place if you want to be on camera.
They have a surveillance camera going down the side of the house. They also have a video ring doorbell that can hear and see you anytime if you are out front. They are watching you! Beware of extra charges, we had a couple that wanted to meet us there at the last minute and we told them fine. They claim that it sleeps 4, but they will charge you per person over 2 people. By the way, we are 45 and older. They also wanted to know way to much personal info. Maybe they like to know more about you while they watch you! There is no disclosure about cameras on the agreement. If you want to be watched, this is the place for you!
We're disappointed that you felt the need to review our personal cabin with such anger & exaggeration. This review would not exist had you read the rental agreement and house rules I sent you when you inquired to book. Before I accepted your reservation I asked if you had completely read our rental agreement and house rules and if you were in agreement? You responded in writing “yes, completely”. I always ask about our guest because we like to know who is staying in our home. Not trying to be creepy, just protecting our property. In our rental agreement, It plainly states that we have cameras on the front area of the cabin that monitors the front door and driveway only. There is also a big bright green sticker on the front door as well. The cameras do not go down the side of the house and there is no video doorbell as you mentioned. VRBO/Homeaway recommends owners monitor the outside front of the property for the security of our home and guests. We value and respect our guest's privacy and this is the ONLY area that is monitored. The remaining areas including outdoor spaces, all decks, hot tub, fire pit are NOT monitored to protect their privacy.
In regards to the extra charges, our cabin does sleep 4 but we prefer fewer people and we offer our property at a very reasonable rate so yes, it would be $10 per person per night up to a total of 4 people. The listing & rental agreement reflects this clearly, it also states in the event there will be any additional guest, to let us know PRIOR to arrival or there would be further charges. We are not a party cabin.
Incidentally, this was a situation where we had received a notification via email that there had been motion on the camera. (we turn off notifications after our guests arrive.) several hours later we received your call that you were lost via GPS & angry. It alarmed me as I’ve heard nightmares of owners double booking! So we looked at the camera to make sure the cabin was secure to find there were already people there. I was perplexed and I looked at all my calendars to make sure I had not double booked which I had not. It then occurred to me you brought additional people without prior consent. You did not follow the rental agreement which in turn resulted in additional fees.
We have 81 other raving reviews from people who love our home. Many return visits. All those reviewers read the rental agreement & info I sent them in their entirety so there were not any surprises for them.
Perfect in every way!
I can’t say enough great things about this cabin! First of all, it was exceptionally clean. It felt like we were the first ones to ever stay there. Also, the view is more beautiful than I could describe in words. We left the cabin a few times to go out to eat, but we were plenty entertained staying at the cabin. The pool table, fire pit, hot tub, and deck were more than enough to keep us entertained for days! My boyfriend actually proposed while we were making s’mores at the fire pit! It was a beautiful setting for such a sweet moment. James and Cathy were available to answer a few questions I had within seconds of my sending a message. I highly recommend this cabin if you are interested in a comfortable stay with a beautiful view.
The cabin was very clean and spacious with such a beautiful location! The leaves were beautiful & the view was wonderful just to sit and look at from all the porches. The cabin was less than 10 minutes from Blue Ridge and 20 minutes to Ellijay, which was convenient. It rained two of the days we were there so it messed up a lot of our plans but the cabin made relaxing just as enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this cabin to all! Cathy was a pleasure to work with.
There’s something for everyone in the area! Enjoy a fun day of exploring our quaint mountain towns that offer great restaurants and wonderful shopping or if you want adventure, Go ziplining, horseback riding or take some time to explore. There are mountain biking trails, hiking trails for every level of experience and sight seeing in the Aska Adventure area or the Benton MacKay trail. See many different waterfalls throughout the area and the Swinging Bridge. We aren't far from Lake Blue Ridge where you can rent boats to have a fun filled day on the lake. The beauty of the area will be one of the many highlights of your visit! The Toccoa river is just a few miles from us where you can rent and enjoy kayaking and canoeing. Almost forgot the Blue Ridge railroad is always a hit! The activites are countless! Just take your pick.
