Trails ascend to near 3200 feet, providing vistas of mountain ridges and descend to the shores of Lake Blue Ridge. Historic Blue Ridge and McCaysville offer specialty shops and galleries for fine furnishings, art, antiques and unique crafted items. Artists are especially attracted to live and work in the Georgia mountains because the peace and quiet, misty mountains and clear starry nights provide time, tranquility and inspiration for creating wonderful art, from tradition art and craft to contemporary painting and sculpture. Mercier Orchards, one of the largest apple orchards in the southeast, grows 50 varieties of apples and makes delicious fried pies, apple cider doughnuts and apple bread from scratch. The cabin is located adjacent to Lake Blue Ridge and has a private dock in the cove, with a swim ladder at the end and mooring for two boats on either side of the swim dock. Lake Blue Ridge is 3,300 acres and has 100 miles of shoreline. A Georgia fishing license is required. On the Southern most lake is where walleye can be caught, but in general, the lake is known for its white bass and small mouth bass fishing. Fannin County is the Trout Capitol of Georgia and there are numerous locations for fly fishing also. Blue Ridge’s Swan Drive-In is one of three remaining drive-in theaters In Georgia. Whether it's playing pool or Monopoly in your cabin, hiking to a waterfall, going to a festival or the Swan Drive-in, the best thing about visiting Georgia's Blue Ridge is spending quality time with family and friends. Take the kids on a Geocaching adventure, using your GPS to find hidden treasures, which can be downloaded from the Fannin County Welcome Center’s website. With 106,000 acres of the Chattahoochee National Forest in the county, Georgia's Blue Ridge has countless opportunities for outdoor fun. Go hiking to one of our local waterfalls. Float the beautiful Toccoa River, or go rafting on the exciting Ocoee River. Rent a pontoon or a jet ski on Lake Blue Ridge, or swim off the dock. Go horseback riding on forested trails or on a zipline adventure through the trees. Blue Ridge's mountain top canopy experience. Zipline Canopy Tours of Blue Ridge is located on 165 acres of beautiful countryside, only six miles from downtown Blue Ridge. And if those aren't high enough for you, see the beauty of the mountains from the best view in town with Blue Ridge Helicopter Tours. The Sweet Shoppe, winner of “Cupcake Wars” is a great way to treat yourself. Many excellent restaurants offer traditional southern fare, as well as excellent German and Italian. Winery tours and Hard Cider tours are also available. Self guided tours are an excellent way to see the area and maps can be downloaded via the Fannin County Chamber or picked up locally. Treat the entire family to a step back in time at the Swan Drive In, bring your blanket or chairs and watch the latest release under the stars. While many people make the journey to Blue Ridge, McCaysville and Fannin County for our natural attractions, there are many cool places and experiences to make your visit more fun! You will fall in love with the authentic mountain towns of Blue Ridge and McCaysville. The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway begins its journey at the historic Blue Ridge Depot and winds its way along the Toccoa River to McCaysville, twin city to Copperhill, Tenn. Don’t miss Mercier Orchards, largest apple orchard in the southeast and home of the best fried apple pie anywhere.

The Blue Ridge Community Theater has a new theater and a full calendar of productions for 2015, including a live music schedule.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Welcome to Fannin County and the area where we are privileged to call home. Lynn is a native of Fannin County and Harry was fortunate to move to the mountains in 1973 from the Georgia coast. Harry and Lynn live and work in Blue Ridge. Both are attorneys and Harry formerly served as a Superior Court Judge (thus the name of the cabin, The Bench & Bar at Lake Blue Ridge). They have six children and three grandchildren. Family and friends are important to the Doss and they are pleased to have a place where they can call home when they visit. When the cabin is not in use by family and friends, it is rented to prospective new friends. The cabin is managed by Lynn, so if there is an issue she is close at hand.

Why the Owner Chose Blue Ridge:
The cabin was built by Lynn in the 1994 while Harry was deployed with the United States Army. She laughs and says, he left and I bought the property and when he left again, I built the cabin. It was designed to serve as a guest house for the many military friends that visited throughout the year. It is located 4.6 miles from downtown Blue Ridge, which is where we make our home so it is perfect as a guest house. Family and friends find a comfortable, convenient place to call home while visiting.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin was designed to host families. There is ample space for a family gathering, but the cabin is still cozy and inviting. It is fun and functional. Located adjacent to both Lake Blue Ridge and the National Forest, and only 4.6 miles from downtown Blue Ridge via paved roads, the property is ideally suited in that it is near everything and at the same time can be a world away. Where is Fannin County? Picture in your mind where the states of Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee meet; Fannin County is the Georgia County that links Georgia to North Carolina and Tennessee. Conveniently located less than two hours from Atlanta, Fannin County and its Cities of Blue Ridge, McCaysville and Morganton offer something for just about everyone. Small town charm and true southern hospitality are always on display. The beauty of the North Georgia mountains is evident in the colors of Fall. Guides available via the Fannin County Chamber of Commerce’s web site provide direction to area hiking trails, waterfalls and driving tours. Excellent trout and fly fishing abounds in area streams. River rafting, tubing and kayaking is readily available, as is an excellent zip line course through the fall leaves. A wide variety of shopping offers something for all taste – trendy to antique – for you, your pet or your home. Recognized for its devotion to the arts – The Blue Ridge Arts Association welcomes artists and provides visitors with many opportunities year round. Live theater and a vintage drive in as well as fine dining and great BBQ are all available. Experience the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway on vintage cars on historic rails. Fall festivals, Halloween, Thanksgiving are special events that provide a treat to all. Light Up Blue Ridge starts a Christmas season that will inspire the child in all of us. Where is Fannin County -- the place you want to make your next travel destination and maybe your next home. Welcome.
