About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2

Stargazer is located on the second highest privately owned peak in Georgia with an unobstructed view of the Rich Mountains. It is very quiet and peaceful on this ridge, with very little car traffic (almost none) and you can hike from the front door of the cabin. There is an outdoor fireplace and a nice sized hot tub looking out over the mountains, as well as rockers and outdoor seating. It has a King sized bed and real wood -burning fireplace, fully stocked kitchen with everything you'd need to whip up a meal or two. It's also pet friendly and I supply a dog bed plus food and water bowls. It's conveniently located between the towns of Ellijay and Blue Ridge where there are plenty of restaurants and shops as well as several annual festivals and fun events. Lake Blue Ridge is also about 15 minutes away and horseback riding is less then 10.

About Mary Spencer

Being a huge outdoor enthusiast, I had 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 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 decide 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-daughters 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 has to offer. A lot has changed since the year 2000, now we have wineries, ziplines, fishing and hiking guides and fine dining to add to the list of things to do and enjoy while visiting the beautiful mountains of North Georgia.

Mary Spencer purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Mary Spencer chose North Georgia Mountains

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.

So Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We had such a relaxing stay. Nice and private, hot tub and view were amazing. We did find that the couch was more comfortable then the bed and the water was pretty brown but i was told that is common with cabins on well water. Short drive to Blue Ridge attractions

Relaxing get-a-way, beautiful mountain view

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our much needed get-a-way visit at the Stargazer cabin.

We found everything was as pictured and described. Very clean, well maintained. Comfortable bed & bathroom, kitchen with all necessities, fun game room, lovely fireplace, great hot tub! Thank you for including some firewood! The view.....beautiful day and night! Would recommend staying here to anyone wanting to enjoy the mountains. This cabin is pet friendly, our golden retriever was very glad to come with us! Having a little of the wintery weather, we did not visit the area attractions, just stayed warm and cozy at the cabin.

We spent a long wonderful nature weekend at the Stargazer. We really loved sitting in the hot tub after a peaceful hike and admiring the fall colors; the view was awesome. Great location, great amenities, great views and a great get away from city life. Thank you!!

Many in Ellijay and Blue Ridge

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.
