Cherrylog cabin description

Awenasa (the Cherokee word for 'my house') is a cozy cabin on a private acre of land, but with access to hiking, neighborhood lakes, mountain views, the Aska Adventure Area, Lake Blue Ridge, Carter's Lake, and other lakes within a short driving distance. The Benton MacKaye hiking trail runs through the neighborhood and there are other local hiking trails. Blue Ridge and Ellijay, GA both have great shopping, antiquing, galleries, festivals - apples in fall and peaches in summer. Horseback riding, canoeing along the Toccoa River Canoe Trail, tubing, and charming dining experiences await you during your visit. Best of all, sitting on the screened porch, watching the birds and wildlife, or enjoying a fire in the fireplace indoors or out, and relaxing in rustic decor provides a perfect getaway for a short weekend or a longer vacation.

In all this rustic paradise, you still have all the comforts of home if you like, including internet, satellite, movies, and games. Whether a romantic weekend for two, a girls' getaway, or your family enjoying the mountains, Awenasa can be your perfect mountain retreat.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: My wife and I built this cabin in 2001. We have 7 dogs, 2 cats, 1 Parrot, 9 chickens, 5 horses and 1 donkey! We live in Ball Ground, GA which is about 1 hr. drive from the Cabin. We enjoy traveling with our dogs, and some of the cabin decor are antiques collected from around the country during our travels. We love the outdoors, good wine, good food, and interesting people and places.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cherrylog:
                      We chose this location because it's close to home. We enjoy the privacy of the 1 acre mountain property, however having some people close by for socializing or in case of an emergency. The city of Blue Ridge is full of little shops, and also offers the Scenic Mountain Railway. It's a very pet friendly town, with lots of activities. One of the only first run drive-in Movie Theaters in Georgia is just the fun way to end the day in town. Then, come back up the mountain and enjoy the evening on the porch with a glass of wine...

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Quiet, private, peaceful, things to do nearby, comfortable, rustic, yet modern.
