Blue Ridge Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come and get away from it all at Mountain Peek cabin. This chalet-type cabin with two story plus ceilings and exposed beams gives a very open, inviting feeling. Large floor to ceiling windows take in the breath-taking year round views of the mountains. Located on a ridge, watch the sun come up on the back deck, or a seasonal view of sunset from points of the cabin.

Everything is provided...just pack some groceries and a toothbrush. All the conveniences of your own DVD player. NOW WITH HBO AND SHOWTIME CHANNELS!! Find a collection of movies and books to keep you entertained, as well. Two queen sized beds sleep four comfortably, plus a sleeper sofa, in the additional loft, off from the second bedroom upstairs, allows sleeping for a maximum of six.

This charming community is only 90 minutes from Atlanta, highway all the way, until you come to Sisson's Cherry Log. Drive over the covered bridge, the railroad tracks (and be sure to take the train ride to McCaysville, too) and then you're only five minutes up the mountain to the cabin.

Be sure and check out the five lakes found in the community and lots of hiking opportunities, just a short walk from the front door. Also enjoy the restaurants, shopping, theatre, rafting, biking, etc., all just minutes in either direction of the cabin.

We look forward to having you and yours at Mountain Peek.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for renting your cabin to us. We had a wonderful time. Very glad we decided to come here instead of the beach. We would definitely love to come back soon. Nothing like waking up with a nice cup of coffee and a lovely view of the mountains.....Thanks again.

Relaxing Foggy Mountain Retreat -We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

We drove up from Atlanta to unwind after work. The directions were very easy and our GPS took us right to the front door. (Driving over that little covered bridge on the way I could already feel myself relaxing!) The cabin has a level parking area and the back of the property is on a steep incline, affording very clear views of the mountains.

We picked some rainy/ foggy days but decided to make the best of the 'soft weather'. Took a walk along the hills and looked far into the woods, something you can't do in the warmer months. The rain made all the green lichens and moss stand out and we took lots of nature photos to put on my computer once I returned home. (So relaxing to look at later!) We met several other neighbors along the way, one an elderly lady enjoying the mist through the woods, "Isn't it a fantastic day?" she said. We went into town the first night and ate at HARVEST. I was able to get a wonderful blue cheese, cranberry and walnut salad topped with grilled salmon and a side of gluten-free bread! Heaven! Our waiter was so sweet.

Later, back at the cabin, we were able to find a provided corkscrew for our wine and enjoy the very clean, and HOT, hot tub! Our family has always 'gone to the cabin' when we wanted simple accommodations, it was part of the adventure, but I must say I did enjoy the new appliances, (ice and water through the door refrigerator!) and shiny new grill. (Compared to cabins we rented when we were kids -barely upgrades from tents- THIS PLACE IS A PALACE. Ha!) I'm sure if you are looking for a sanitized, Disney-cartoon cabin, you can rent one around here for twice the price, but this place reminds me of great family vacations where you don't have to worry about where you sit, or if your shoes are a little muddy. We always had 'well loved' furniture at our cabin, I could relax!

It began to POUR outside but the cabin was water tight. No leaks. We enjoyed hearing the pitter-patter on the metal roof while looking out the big windows facing the hills. The cable is by Dish so with the heavy rain the t.v. signal faltered a little. We didn't mind, there was a full drawer of DVD's and Videos to watch and the gas fireplace made us very warm and cozy. In the morning it was still raining so we sat in the screened porch and watched the fog and smoke rise-up between the hills and trees and drank our hot coffee. Chirping birds, pitter-patter.... I'm thinking I like the rainy days better than sunshine.

Depressing, tired, and worn out

  • 1 of 5

Was totally shocked at how worn out, tired looking the place was. Could not get the television to work at all even with the instructions posted on the cabinet. Outside was untended and as worn out as the inside of the house. While tidy enough, overall the impression of one wanting to stay there was most uninviting. Topping off the experience was fecal matter in the toilet. That was enough to send us the four hours back home after having been on the road already for the four hours to get there. We tried to call you on Friday and left a message in hopes of hearing from you, the owner, about a possible refund. No return call. Good luck renting this out...

Owner's Response: Sorry for your unfavorable impression of our cabin. Find it curious that you were shocked at the cabin, as we have pictures on vrbo. We have spend several thousand dollars just this year on upgrades as well....all new stainless appliances in the kitchen, leather recliner in living room, new pots and pans, new bed linens, new char-broiler gas grill, new gas fireplace logs, and dining table refinished. John tells every renter to please call if there are problems....i.e. the T.V. All the best..... Owners of Mountain Peek

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect spot to get away from the city for a long weekend. Our favorite parts were the hot tub and the grill. We went into Blue Ridge one day, only a short drive away. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed.

Worst Cabin Ever!

  • 1 of 5

I'll keep it short. Drove 90 miles from Atlanta last night.. Drove 90 miles back to Atlanta last night.


- No cleaning was done - sheets on floor, dirty dishes..I get it, weather issues could have caused a delay.. A little communication would have gone a long way.

- There was poop in the toilet.. No need to elaborate.

- Hot tub was less than half full.

- Little baby roaches crawled all over our food on the counter.

- The guest book is full of complaints.. and argumentative responses from the owners.

- There are little notes everywhere reminiscent of grandma nagging you of all the things you shouldn't do at her house - making you feel the opposite of welcome.

- Furnishings are outdated

- Floors are in bad shape

Owner is not responsive to email and was not overly hospitable on the phone.

Poor experience all around.

Owner's Response: For over 10 years, we have had a very good rental history with some very satisfied renters. Some have submitted 4 and 5 star reviews (note the previous review.) We are very sorry when isolated incidences with communication or paralyzing weather conditions (i.e. Ice Storm 2014) give a less favorable experience. Very quickly to address some points....."Outdated Furniture"- Just this year, we have proudly installed a very comfortable leather recliner, under counter recessed lighting, a new stainless steel refrigerator with ice maker, new gas logs, as well as new linens for the beds and baths. "Unclean cabin"- Notice was given immediately to very reliable cleaning service(who we have used for over six years), located only minutes away. "Bugs"- Dishes in the sink......And we called our regular exterminating service to make sure they took care of that. (Allgood Pest Solutions from Dalton, Georgia). We are constantly updating and maintaining the most comfortable 'home away from home' experience for our renters. (Renters, who come from all over the Southeast....Louisiana, Florida, Tennessee, Alabama.) Thank you.... Owners of Mountain Peek Cabin

We had agreat time at this cabin. John thanks for your help. The Cabin is in my favorite area of Blue Ridge. Close enough to town and if you want to drive in to Ellijay it is on that side of Blue Ridge. The Cabin is very nice. We brought our two Bostons with us and they loved the area. John and Lance thanks for having us and we look forward to returning here.
