Property description

Why Acorn Ridge Cabin? There are many beautiful cabins in North Georgia but only Acorn Ridge Cabin will help make your getaway exactly like you envisioned it!! Acorn Ridge Cabin gives the special touches to make sure your getaway will be exactly like you envisioned it, including personal recommendations for area activities and restaurants, based on your group size (couples, kids, etc) and requirements. You won't get this level of service from other owners. Acorn Ridge has two bedrooms (queen-size beds in each) plus a giant loft with king-size bed (our favorite room), two baths, a bonus room with pool table and a covered wrap around two level porch. Cabin sleeps six comfortably in beds. We also have a sleeper sofa in the rec. room for kids! Our cabin is situated on a 2+ acre wooded lot, with the privacy you want but the convenience of being just outside of Blue Ridge.

Why Acorn Ridge Cabin?: There are many beautiful cabins in North Georgia but only Acorn Ridge Cabin will help make your getaway exactly like you envisioned it. If you want to just relax at the house, I'll give recommendations on how to best do it. For dining, I'll give my favorite restaurants. For shopping and antiquing, just let me know what you're hunting for and I'll point you in the right direction. No other cabin in North Georgia provides the same level of service.

We invite you to call us (Ken or Amy) to ask questions about cabin, availability, rates, or just about the Blue Ridge area. We know there are many beautiful cabins but few compare to our level of service and responsiveness.

Other Amenities

  • Your young children are extremely welcome (we have little ones ourselves). We have games, puzzles and movies for them. The older kids (ie: teens) will be pleased with the internet access and the fact that we get good cell phone reception at the cabin. Older kids also like the pool table and hot tub (supervised, of course). Watching the stars is always a fun activity and you can do it well from our deck. Our guests tells us that no other cabin they've stayed in previously has the level of service that we do. Of course we provide fine linens and towels but also the smaller things, like coffee, hot chocolate and popcorn. The movie and CD selection has received rave reviews, likely because of the wide variety in each area....moreless

Acorn Ridge Cabin is perfectly situated right outside of historic Blue Ridge, Georgia. Known for its quaint downtown area and Scenic Railroad, Blue Ridge is the ideal combination of mountain living and recreation. Fannin County has the 2nd highest amount of National Park acreage in the state, with endless hiking opportunities, particularly if you like waterfalls. White water rafting at the Olympic venue Ocoee River is nearly and Lake Blue is 5 minutes from the cabin, where you can to rent boats or jet skis.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We have 3 young kids and wanted to buy a cabin that we could enjoy a lot and then rent when we're not using it. As you can see from our reviews, we take great care of our guests and are very responsive to their questions. Ken owns a business in Atlanta and Amy works for a non-profit. Our boys (Sam, Nick, in the photo) are 11 and 9 yrs, along with 5 month old Julianna.

Why the Owner Chose Blue Ridge:
Blue Ridge is the best little town in North Georgia. It doesn't have the fake tourist feel like Helen. It's a classy little town and the area provides a lot to do for different types of people. If you want to shop and eat, just spend the day in Blue Ridge. If you want to play in the water, hit the lake or go rafting/tubing. If you want to hike, there's plenty of National Forest land to do it. Plus it's an easy 90 minutes from ATL. So you can pop up on a Friday night and stay 2 days without being exhausted from the drive. Our cabin's size and layout is perfect. If it's just two people, you'll feel right and home and not lost in a cavernous place. If it's two families, each family can stay on a separate floor so the kids can sleep as (if?) needed.
