About Mary Spencer

Being a huge outdoor enthusiast, I have been visiting the North Georgia Mountains for years. The hiking is incredible, with marked and unmarked trails everywhere. The lakes are beautiful and so serene, plus the fishing is great. The towns of Ellijay and Blue Ridge are adorable and both have tons of great shops and restaurants. Makes it easy to enjoy all that nature has to offer and then be able to sit down at a nice "Mom and Pop" restaurant for some local trout and veggies. I bought my first little log cabin in 2000, which I thoroughly enjoyed with family and friends, so much so that I decided to buy my second one a few years later. Both of my girls grew up playing in the dirt, riding 4 -wheeler, picking blackberries and fishing in the creek. I now bring my 4 year old grand-daughter to the "cabin" so she can also have an opportunity to enjoy this amazing place and make some great memories.

I currently own 4 cabins ( all are listed on Homeaway/VRBO) and opened a company in 2010 called Morning Breeze Cabin Rentals, which manages a total of 60 log cabins throughout the Blue Ridge and Ellijay area. I would love for each and every one of you to come on up and experience all that the mountains of Blue Ridge have to offer. A lot has changed since the year 2000, we now have wineries, ziplines, fishing and hiking guides plus fine dining to add to the list of things to do and enjoy while visiting the beautiful mountains of North Georgia.

Why Mary Spencer chose Ellijay

When I first found The Stargazer it was a simple hunting shack consisting of one large room and a loft you couldn't stand in. The owner rarely used it anymore and everyone up on the ridge was afraid to approach him about selling it. As you can see from the pictures, the view is absolutely worth a million dollars and I really wanted that shack. I finally got up the nerve to ask and he said yes but take good care of it. I decided to keep the original structure intact and just add onto it. A nice size wing became the living, kitchen and eating area. I extended the deck which would not have been complete until I added a hot tub, small outdoor fireplace, table for eating and of course rockers. I now had my perfect mountain hideaway.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is located on the second highest privately owned peak in GA. I still remember the first time driving up the gravel, then dirt road, so excited to see what was at the top. The view is truly incredible and I can honestly say that after 10 years of driving up to the top, it still truly takes my breath away.

The most amazing, romantic view ever!

  • 5 of 5

We spent endless hours in the hot tub just gazing out over the mountains. The cabin had everything we needed. The kitchen was well-stocked so we cooked all our meals at the cabin. We thought we'd go into Blue Ridge but ended up just hanging out at the cabin playing football and enjoying the hot tub. This special time with my husband was what we needed. We will be back for our anniversary. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan for letting us know about your stay at the Stargazer. It truly sounds like you and your husband enjoyed the cabin and all the amenities it offers ( I bet you were playing Foosball, not Football lol) . Please keep the Stargazer in mind for the next time you are visiting the gorgeous North GA Mountains ~ Mary

Greatest Vacay!!

  • 5 of 5

My vacation was amazing. The cabin was beautiful and the view was awesome! I really enjoyed my birthday weekend here at The Stargazer. There is nothing negative I have to say about the place. It was so cozy and relaxing and the bed was so comfortable. To be able to wake up and watch the sun rise was great. I loved every second of my weekend here at The Stargazer. Would definitely come back again. Thank you so much! :)

Incredible Views and a Jewel in the Rough.

  • 2 of 5

We've stated many times in the N GA mountains in several cabins. Your views are the best! We thought however you'd like some feedback as there were several things not working (some small ) but when we'd go to use them they wouldn't work or had issues. The ceiling fan in the living room makes a clanking sound no matter the speed so we had to turn it off, the butane lighter for candles you have is out of gas, the light over the micro wave doesn't work, the cutting board looks so dirty i was concerned cutting food on it (both sides). The hottub cover needs to be sprayed for ants and only 1/2 the water jets work in the hot tub, the fire pit area on side of house has foot high weeds all around it, and the downstairs laundry area has a wet pet strong odor. Again a jewel in the rough with incredible views.

Owner's Response: Wayne, I want to let you know that the cutting board has been replaced, the fan fixed, new bulb in the microwave and weeds have been removed from the fire-pit area.The cabin is under regular pest control service and we will have them look at the hot tub area when they come back up to spray. Not sure how the candles got in the cabin but those have been removed as well since they are a fire hazard and the lighter will be replaced when the fire-place is available for guests again in the Fall. With a 2 Star rating, it's obvious you didn't enjoy your stay and we apologize for that. Hopefully this doesn't deter other guests from coming up and staying at this wonderful cabin with one of the most amazing views in North Georgia.

Located on the 2nd highest privately owned peak in Georgia, there is hiking from the front door. The scenery is amazing, wildlife abounds and it's very quiet and peaceful. It's about 10 minutes from downtown Ellijay, where there are plenty of antique shops and restaurants and 15 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. In BR you'll find many upscale boutique shops and fine dining as well as the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. Lake Blue Ridge is also about 15 minutes away and you can rent boats and jet skies as well as fish. Horse-back riding is 10 minutes away, tubing down the river(s), one location is 10 minutes away the other about 20. Whitewater rafting on the Ocoee is about 30 to 45 minutes away and the Nantahala is about 90. Fishing is everywhere and we are known Internationally for our trout fishing. Amicalola falls is about 15 minutes away and Burt's Pumpkin Farm is the same distance, there's plenty of great trails in the area off of 52W as well as many of the Apple Farms. The beginning of the Appalachian Trail at Springer Mountain is also very close by.
