About Mary Spencer

We both loved the outdoors and especially fishing. We would take several trips each year specifically to enjoy our day(s) fishing. Typically this was in Florida, but we also liked Savannah, Chattanooga, Bahamas, and really anywhere that we could throw a line in. We only lived 90 minutes from Blue Ridge and Mary owned a company up there called Morning Breeze Cabin Rentals. Needless to say, we were heading in that directions on a very regular basis and finally decided to buy a cabin together on a lake, so we would have the best of both worlds...outdoors at its finest and fishing !

Mary Spencer purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Mary Spencer chose Ellijay

What's not to love about it!!! Mary was familiar with the Lakeview Escape when she owned another company up there and had her eye on it for several years. We spent quite a few weekends looking at dozens of cabins but she just kept saying, I think this one is going to come through. Sure enough, our realtor knew the original owners who was getting ready to sell it and before it hit the market, we got the option to make a bid on it. The Lake setting combined with the incredible mountain view are breath-taking. We roll out of bed in the mornings and sit out on the top deck with our cups of coffee and just take it all in. The location was also a plus, paved all the way and only 15 minutes to both the towns of Ellijay and Blue Ridge. We do like the great outdoors but we also like the luxury of having some great shops and fine dining restaurants at our fingertips. This cabin was definitely the one for us.

I hope anyone who has the opportunity to rent our cabin will enjoy it as much as we do. And if you catch a big fish, we want to see a picture :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to Lakeview Escape for our 1st anniversary and decided to come back for our 4th. We are getting married this year and needed some peace from our busy lives. We didn’t leave the cabin all weekend and got to see snow. We can’t wait to come back

Amazing!! The view of the lake and mountains was incredible and the cabin was absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about the cabin!! The furnishing were in theme with the area and the bed was very comfortable. The view off of every deck was spectacular but we really enjoyed sipping our morning coffee on the upper deck gazing out at the lake. We walked the trails around the cabin and used the canoe every day. At night we played a few games of pool and used the hot tub once after some strenuous hiking that day, perfect remedy for sore muscles. Overall a wonderful stay, we can't wait to come back again

Lakeview Escape Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over July 4th week and couldn't ask for better facilities. Everything about the cabin was great from the covered porch to Jacuzzi. Also, the view of the lake and mountains was superb. We also enjoyed the pool table and canoeing on the lake. Unfortunately, with the problems with the dam breaking in the past the fishing was not good. Enjoyed stay any way as this was our 4th time staying with Ocean Breeze and we will come back.

sincerely Doiuglas Whaitehead and family

I would recommend the cabin to all dog lovers as ours thought the place was great. The little is very nice and being to take a canoe trip around it was fabulous. The cabin is very comfortable and appointed nicely. I would stay again any time.
