Blue Ridge cabin description

$250.00; $100 cleaning and 10% Lodging tax. There is not an additional per person charge.
Weekend rates are for two night stays.

The Bench & Bar is located on beautiful Lake Blue Ridge.

Designed to host families or large groups, the house has three levels.

On the top level there are two bedrooms: one has a king sized bed and one has a queen sized bed. Each bedroom has satellite TV and there is a full bath on this level.

On the main level there is one bedroom with a queen sized bed. There is satellite TV in this bedroom. Also on this level is a sun room with a single futon. A full bath on this level has a jetted tub. The eat-in kitchen has a high top table that seats 8. A full kitchen has service for 16, dishwasher, stove, and refrigerator with ice maker and built in microwave, as well as coffee pot; toaster and blender. A gas grill is located on the screen porch off of the living room. The living room has a fireplace with gas logs and satellite TV.

The lower level has a game room that has satellite TV and a billiard table. There is a full size futon in this room. Off of the game room is the laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer. In addition, two more bedrooms are located on this level. Each of these bedrooms has three twin beds, for a total of six twin beds. There is a full bath on this level as well.

Off of the game room is a patio with a hot tub that seats six. A few steps away is the in ground fire ring for roasting marshmallows.

The shore of Lake Blue Ridge is 202 feet from the cabin. The walk is basically level via a wooded path. There are five steps when the elevation of the path changes. There may be a few steps to the walkway of the dock depending on the level of the lake.

The dock is 10 x 30 – 10 feet wide and 30 long. There is mooring for two boats on either side of the dock and a swim ladder at the end of the dock. Canoes, floats, kayaks, and inner tubes may be used on the lake. Bring your own or ask about rental opportunities. There is one marina on the lake. It sales gasoline for boats and rents pontoon boats by the day. There are four public boat launches on the lake. You cannot launch a boat from the cabin.

There is parking for six to eight cars or six cars and a boat trailer.

The cabin is non smoking and only those animals that call the national forest home are permitted on the premises.

In non swimming months, why not enjoy some fun with family and friends relaxing by a fire at the outdoor fire pit or shooting a game of billiards? Explore the exposed lake bed or enjoy a refreshing walk through beautiful mountains.

Shopping or exploring, the nearby towns provide ample opportunity, while the nature lover will never be able to see and do everything.

Designed to host families, Blue Ridge's Bench & Bar is located adjacent to the National Forest. Less than five miles to the scenic town of Blue Ridge, the cabin offers the perfect designation for those seeking to escape from day to day activities and enjoy family, friends in the peaceful North Georgia Mountains. Its nearness to Blue Ridge makes it ideal for those desiring to explore this great mountain town, or its nearby neighbors of Ellijay, McCaysville or Copperhill, Tennessee.

If you enjoy mountain biking or hiking, step out the door and enjoy the trails of the world famous 'Aska Adventure Race.'

If you have a special request or need, let us know and we will be happy to either arrange it for your or direct you to a source.

The cabin is designed to be fun and functional, but not fancy. There is space for you to gather as a group or enjoy a few quiet moments on the sun porch.

We welcome responsible college students and small groups as well as families.

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About: We would love to have you visit us on Lake Blue Ridge. Mindful of the economy, we have priced our cabin to offer you a competive family friendly vacation option.

                  Why Blue Ridge:
                  We designed this cabin to host families. It is not fancy. It is functional and enjoyable. If you want to have a fish fry or make a great hamburger -- come on. The lake is easily accessed and just waiting on you to jump in, float, rent a boat or simply sit and enjoy the view from the dock.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Lake Blue Ridge is located in historical Blue Ridge, Georgia. An hour and a half from Altanta, the area offers many venues for family enjoyment -- the scenic railroad; horse back riding; white water rafting or tubing if you prefer a calmer ride. There are excellent resturants and shops that offer something for everyone.
