Property description

Less than 3 miles from the cabin, there is a new Canoe and Kayak launch into the Nottely River where you can paddle to Lake Nottely or just enjoy fishing in the river. Built by the TVA and Union County, this is the perfect place to begin your trip down the river!

Poplar Ridge Retreat is a lovely 3BR, 2 BA mountain cabin. Just 10 minutes from town, this cedar-sided ranch is centrally located and perfect for your trip to the mountains. Whether it is to hike the Appalachian Trail, visit relatives or take in any of the many area attractions, this is the place to start from.

Bring your family, children, and pups and enjoy the quiet of the mountains and the solitude you will feel when sitting on our popular screened-in porch. The only thing that interrupts the quiet is the songs of the many species of birds on the property.

Poplar Ridge Retreat offers easy access to all of North Georgia’s waterfalls, beautiful scenery, trout streams, Lake Nottely and mountain hiking trails, which includes sections of the Appalachian Trail. It is close to nearby Wine Vineyards and all area attractions. Golfing is available at the nearby Butternut Creek Golf Course where the scenery is so amazing you'll find it hard to concentrate on your game.

It sits on 1.4 acre of beautiful wooded property which is away from it all, yet near enough to not be isolated. It has a large fenced pasture and easy 3-step access. The 3 bedrooms are furnished with a Queen, Full and two Twin beds. The Queen has a memory foam topped mattress for added comfort. The renovated bathroom has a tub and shower and the Master Bath has a step-in shower.

There are many outside areas to lounge including a lovely screened porch where you can enjoy your favorite book or beverage. There is also a large deck with seating and an Infra-Red gas grill ready for cookouts (propane provided). Additional outside areas with seating are found on the property.

Approximately 1 acre of the property is securely fenced with pasture fence which is lined with wire fencing inside so children and pets can romp in safety. There is a large doggie door provided so you don’t even have to get up from the recliner to let Fido (or Fifi) in and out. Carport and additional parking available.

The living room has hardwood floors and a comfy leather sofa, a 40” flat screen TV, a wood-burning fireplace (firewood and starters provided) and sliding French doors to the screened porch. The dining room and kitchen have ceramic tile; there is new carpeting in all 3 bedrooms which is professionally cleaned monthly. We receive great reviews for our cleanliness. Cable TV, DVR, WI-FI connection and excellent cell phone service is provided for those who want to keep in touch.

The renovated kitchen features cherry cabinets and new appliances, solid surface Corian countertops with stainless steel undermount double sink. A Keurig single-serve coffee maker is provided, as well as the k-cups, Mini-Moo 's and sugars (de-caf and regular)

For your comfort there is central heat and air conditioning and every room has ceiling fans. A washer, dryer and clothesline is available. There are board games, puzzles, dvd’s and books to fill your leisure time. These can be found in the bottom of the television cabinet.

Poplar Ridge Retreat is located approximately 5 miles from the city of Blairsville It is just minutes from Union County’s famous Meeks Park which features miles of walking trails both paved and gravel, children’s play area, swimming pool, skateboard park, and basketball and tennis courts. It features a separate huge doggie walk park. If you just want to pack a basket and enjoy the park there are many picnic tables alongside the rambling Butternut Creek.

The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, pots and pans, utensils, glassware and everything you need but the food. Pets are welcome with prior approval and a pet fee. For the very small children we have provided a high chair, folding Pack & Play, and stroller so you won't have to pack that large baby equipment.

We are sure you will enjoy your visit with us at Poplar Ridge Retreat.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I am retired after working seven years for the Union County Commissioner as his executive assistant. Now that I have free time, I enjoy gardening, volunteering, reading and playing with my wonderful Brittany, Cookie.

Why the Owner Chose Blairsville:
I fell in love with the North Georgia Mountains when I started visiting friends there in 1995. I purchased my home and lived there, making many life-long friends, and recently relocated to live with my daughter. We visit the area frequently, as it has always been a quiet and relaxing get-away to recharge our batteries.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
When we are in the mountains, we love nothing better than reading a book on the screened porch, listening to the birds and watching for the deer to make their evening stroll to the springs on the property. We also love to hike on the many nearby trails, and golf at the beautiful Butternut Creek Golf Course. Boating on Lake Nottley is always a great way to cool down on a hot summer day. And watching the leaves turn in the fall is a breathtaking display. It's so quiet you can actually hear the leaves fall. The occasional snowfall while having a fire crackling in the fireplace also creates great memories for us.
