About the property

4/2-2 story log cabin, 2800 sq ft Living & 2800 sq ft Decks, Private Paved Drive

Once you arrive at the driveway you know it's gonna be a great getaway because you don't share the mountain with a neighborhood of other cabins! As you ascend the mountain on your own private concrete paved driveway you leave the world behind and arrive at a special 2.5 acres of paradise! When you exit your vehicle at the top just listen because you are going to hear a lot of nothing while you are inhaling the fresh Blue Ridge Mountain air and when you get your first glance at the extended, layered mountain views..WOW! or JAW DROPPING! Is what our past guests say! No stopping in town to pick up or return a key because each party will have their own 4 digit entrance code!

One of your favorite things will be making a mug of coffee, grabbing that favorite novel and heading to the wrap-around porch to recline on one of the 4 double swings! Rock those troubles away while absorbing the long range panoramic mountain views! Reconnect with family and friends or just that special someone! Georgia Sunrise Cabin is the place for RELAXATION!

Night time is a special time at the cabin because you can gather your family and friends around you and build a fire in the firepit on its own unique alcove deck! Then cuddle up on the wooden benches built by the owners, watch the beautiful sunset and listen to the forest come alive down the mountain below! We've just added a new large firepit/charcoal grill that you can cook on also! Roast hot dogs, burgers, marshmallows, or steaks and converse with other friends and family lounging in the hot tub because these 2 amenities are close together! Our Party Patio and covered decks boast 2800 sq. ft. of floor area and fire pit deck/hot tub proximity is a favorite with past guests, too!

Head on over to the relaxing covered and LED lighted 7 person hot tub for a luxurious soak while looking over the panoramic mountain view! Make sure you see the sunrise from the hot tub! Absolutely stunning! Hence the name of our cabin-Georgia Sunrise! We now have 2 Bluetooth receivers-1 upstairs and 1 downstairs and 4 100 watt speakers to stream sports, Pandora or your favorite music playlist while lounging in the hot tub, sitting by the fire pit or grilling!

After that luxurious soak grab a fluffy towel and sit by the new stacked stone fireplace built by the owners with a remote control gas log insert and warm up! Our fireplace is located in the family/dining/kitchen area upstairs so everyone can be together whether preparing food, eating at dining table or watching TV. Past guests really like this feature also!

After you're warmed up settle down with family and watch the 65'' Smart LED 3D TV loaded with Dish Network and Netflix viewing options. There's also a 3D DVD player with 3D glasses!

If you decide you have to connect to the outside world there is unlimited WIFI available!

Next to the unique Rustic Sandwashed Pine pool table that was hand built in Russia for a game of pool while watching your favorite sports on the 55'' LED Smart TV. Pandora is available if you want to jam to the oldies.

For the children or young at heart there's another media room with a wall mount 55" LED TV with Playstation 3. Leather sectional seating and 2 small children's recliners complete the room. This room is also a favorite with past guests!

If you're hungry go to the large gourmet kitchen with everything a gourmet cook would need to cook up a favorite family meal, from Tramontina 3-ply stainless steel cookware to a Ninja blender/food processor it's all there! The distressed black cabinets were hand finished by the owners adding to the rustic mountain atmosphere! When you are cooking for a large family gathering you are in luck because there is an amazing 10 1/2 foot oak dining table to accomodate! There are 8 hand carved dining chairs, a live bark edge bench and Old Hickory rustic chandelier for ambient lighting! There's enough matching dinnerware to set a beautiful table for a large family dinner and if you have to make a quick run to Blue Ridge for liquid refreshment or viddles it's only 9 miles away from the cabin!

For those sure to happen UH OH's there's a large laundry room with a Large Capacity Maytag washer and dryer and granite folding table. Large hanging rack, iron and ironing board also provided.

The large bedrooms will not disappoint either. All three of the king sized mattresses are absolutely amazing to sleep on. Our guests are always asking us 'Where did you get those mattresses?" Stay as our guests and experience them too! The upstairs master bedroom is fully furnished with a massive reclaimed barn-wood bed with headboard and footboard.There are 2 night stands with bear table lamps, a 5 drawer chest of drawers and a large mirrored dresser also made of reclaimed barnwood!

The other 2 king sized downstairs bedrooms are furnished with rustic hand made furniture purchased from Jerry's Mountain Furniture in Blue Ridge. This store is one of our personal favorites. We love to go in there and browse their unique furniture! One of the bedrooms is black walnut and the other is rustic Mountain Laurel branches. Both bedrooms have head boards and foot boards and 2 night stands with table lamps.

If you love the rustic mountain look notice the massive beams overhead on the upstairs level and the black iron security plates installed by owners!

Also notice the 3 hand made screen doors made by the owners with wood from the Chattahoochee National Forest where this great cabin sits!

You will find it easy to unwind here but very hard to go home after staying at the Georgia Sunrise!

About Laura Lewis

This cabin is a father, mother, son and daughter-in-law project that we have enjoyed remodeling together. The father and son are both general contractors in Northwest Florida.We have spent weeks at a time here lovingly restoring and decorating. We live in Milton, Florida where we were born and have lived all of our life. We travel to the cabin frequently to give it a thorough cleaning and make any repairs.

Laura Lewis purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Laura Lewis chose Morganton

This cabin is definitely in paradise! This house is on a mountain ridge by itself in the Chattahoochee National Forest which is full of mountain wildlife. There are no neighbors beside you. Lots of privacy!

We love to travel to the area so we decided to buy this cabin as a father, mother, son and daughter-in-law project. We did all of the remodeling and decorating ourselves over a period of 2 years.

What makes this cabin unique

Concrete paved driveway all the way to the cabin. Large concrete paved parking area around the cabin. Enough room for at least 4 cars or trucks. No unsafe high drop offs. It's so important to have a safe access to a mountain cabin. Wonderful place for a family vacation! We've tried to make it safe for children with a safety gate at the top of the stairs!

Your family will absolutely love swinging on one of four swings on the complete wrap around porch. Also 10' picnic table near the grill on the wrap around porch!

Wonderful accommodations with a beautiful view at a very reasonable rate!

  • 4 of 5

Georgia Sunrise met and exceeded expectations for our weekend family trip. From the paved drive to the super large paved parking area, it just got better and better. Our mid-January visit was toasty warm with the beautiful fireplace and deck fire pit. The kitchen is laid out well for groups, the deck gas grill functioned perfectly and the dining table is fantastic for dining and games (with 10 in our group). Bedrooms and baths are very nice with attention to details (wonderful unique furnishings, bed linens, ample closet space) and 2 spacious bathrooms large enough to handle 4 women (2/bathroom) getting ready at the same time. With 6 women in our group this was a blessing! The pool table, which got used almost non-stop is a work of art in itself. The view is probably more spectacular at this time of year because no foliage allows you to see for miles and miles across the horizon. Nothing refreshes my soul and fills my tank like the unbroken views of rolling mountains. My wife and I watched the sunrise on 2 of our 3 mornings, beautiful. Thanks to the Lewis family for sharing their excellent and spacious home. For all that Georgia Sunrise offers, this is an excellent cabin at a very affordable price.

Nice cabin--not perfect

  • 3 of 5

Views compromised by adjacent neighbors and power lines. 3 of 4 bedrooms without dressers. 2 of 4 bedrooms without TV. 2 guest bedrooms without windows. Nice assortment of cooking utensils, crockpot. We used the well cared for and clean grill. Blueridge is a very quant and cute town. Plenty of room for family get together of 8.

Owner's Response: Thank you Theresa for taking the time to review your stay! We are happy to hear you had plenty of room for your large family, you enjoyed the well stocked kitchen and the new gas grill! #1 We want to state that you never contacted us any time during or after your stay with any negative comments. You asked some questions before your stay and you stated your appreciation for the quick responses. #2.We never in any descriptions or correspondence stated our cabin was perfect. Only our past guests have stated that. #3.The power lines you stated were compromising your view have been there for 6 years since we purchased the cabin. They do not compromise the extended, panoramic views of the mountains.The only time you see them is if you look downward toward the valleys. The views are so amazing they've been mentioned in most of the 121-5 star reviews our cabin has received from past guests. #4.Your statement about adjacent neighbors is incorrect also. The Webster's Dictionary tells me the meaning of "adjacent" is "near to" and the nearest neighbor is at the bottom of the mountain 1/2 mile away! How could they "compromise" a view? 5. Your statement about 3 of the 4 bedrooms do not have dressers is Incorrect. There is a set of metal shelving slide-out drawers in the closet of the King basement bedroom making 2 of 4 bedrooms having drawers for storage. The other downstairs king bedroom has a huge walk in closet with hanging rods and metal shelving but as you stated-no dresser. The bunk room does not have dresser drawers and we will consider adding some type of clothing storage in the future. #6. 2 of the 4 bedrooms do not have TV's- Correct- We will be adding 2 Smart TV's within a month to the bedrooms. #7. 2 of the bedrooms do not have windows.-Correct! Last time I checked they are called basement bedrooms and there would be no need to put windows in those rooms to get a view of that good ol Georgia mountain dirt. Our family actually calls dibs on them when we stay so the kids and grand kids won't wake up early and the adults can sleep in! Sincerely, Greg and Laura Lewis

Car: necessary

The Lewis family's Georgia Sunrise cabin is located in the town of Morganton which was the Fannin county seat years ago. Our cabin is only about 10 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge on Old 76 which is a beautiful scenic drive through the mountains! Our family enjoys these backroad scenic drives in the area and shopping in the many shops in downtown Blue Ridge. The scenic train in Blue Ridge is a MUST when visiting the area. Lake Blue Ridge is less than 10 minutes away with many water activities. You can rent pontoon boats, jet skies or just sun bathe on the beautiful white sandy beach! There's also many fishing and hiking oppurtunities. Numerous swinging bridges and waterfalls in the area, too. The Fannin County website is a great guide also when visiting the area! It keeps you up to date on what's happening locally.
