About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

'Fishing Bear Cabin' is a quaint, cozy log cabin getaway nestled on top of a secluded mountain ridge in Cherry Lake, a private community with small lakes and hiking trails. Midway between Ellijay (the apple of Georgia) and Blue Ridge off of Hwy 515, Fishing Bear is only 75 minutes from Altanta as well as 90 minutes from Chattanooga, TN. Our location is convenient and easily accessible off of Hwy 515 yet very private and quiet. The cabin is kept clean and fresh. Come and enjoy the charming 'fishing bear' decor in our fully furnished and equipped log cabin. Sip your morning coffee on the deck and watch the deer walk by. You'll find the peace and quite of mountain solitue, all the comforts of home (cable TV, wireless internet) and more...

Upstairs features two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Both bedrooms are furnished with Queen size beds, TV and DVD player. All linens are supplied - even warm, flannel sheets for those cold winter nights. Snuggle up in front of the gas log fireplace - enjoy the beauty and comfort of a wood burning fireplace without the work and mess. Overstuffed seating makes this living area cozy and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped and many condiments are supplied. Relax on any of the three decks - swinging on the porch swings or rocking in the rockers. Entire cabin is wood (no drywall) for a true rustic feel and downstairs has been renovated in white pine. The bedroom downstairs is furnished with a King size log bed, dresser and TV with DVD/VCR combo. Attached with master bedroom is a second bathroom (shower only). The entertainment area has a wet bar with microwave and refrigerator, TV with DVD/VCR and air hockey/pool table. There is a deluxe futon and a twin sleeper sofa to provide additional sleeping areas-great for the kids to stay up and watch the many movies available. The entertainment area opens onto a large screened deck with another porch swing, a picnic table and rocking chair. Step down to a third deck where you'll find the gas grill and hot tub and additional seating.

About Doug & Jeanne Lindberg

We have loved the mountains and decided to buy in the Blue Ridge area because of all it has to offer - easy access, shops, hiking, tubing, rafting, antiquing, vineyards and wine tastings, festivals and so much more.

Doug & Jeanne Lindberg purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Doug & Jeanne Lindberg chose World

We fell in love with the cozy, comfort of this cabin. It is very easy to get to with a four lane highway right up to the turn to go up the mountain. Once you leave the highway it is like being in another world - quiet, peaceful.

We have tried to make our cabin a home away from home and provide all the comforts of home.

What makes this cabin unique

Easy access to the cabin as well as down the driveway to park. Quiet and serene yet close to many activities, shops, local events, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good morning, Jeanne! Thank you SO much for opening your beautiful home to us. Our only complaint was that we could not stay longer to enjoy it! Thank you for permitting us to extend the checkout time on Sunday - the extra 2 hours in the morning were really great. We absolutely loved the cabin, and will definitely stay here again. Once I have more time, I will put together a review for the VRBO site - can't say enough nice things about you and your lovely home! Thanks again. Heather

Great cabin! This was the 3rd stay here for us and we plan on returning again !

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay in the mountains. The cabin is beautiful, clean and perfect for a family or a couple. Cabin is in a beautiful area with trees and wildlife all around it but also only about 5 miles from downtown Blue Ridge. This cabin has all the amenities you could ask for including an awesome fireplace, a gas grill, a hot tub and 2 great porches. You won't be disappointed at Fishing Bear Cabin!

Wonderful trip with family - perfect location for a quick trip from Atlanta!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying in the North Georgia Mountains, first time at Fishing Bear Cabin. The house is precious and provides anything you would need for a relaxing, comfortable stay. The leaves were beautiful and the location - just a few miles from the town of Blue Ridge - was perfect.

Love this cabin and the location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many cabins and this is one of our favorites now. The cabin is very well appointed. Better than any we have rented before. The decor is just perfect. You can see there is a lot of time put into making it homey and cozy and we felt both. Bed was very comfortable. Loved the gas fireplace. So much easier than hauling in wood and trying to keep it up and with the gas, when you leave, just turn it off. Never thought I would like the gas but it was very easy and refreshing to use. Great area for walking our dog and nice area in general. We will be back! Mary Kelly

Cabin was everything we were looking for. Just wish we had more time to enjoy. We are very particular about CLEAN and the cabin was clean as could be. We would certainly recommend this cabin in every way.
