Blairsville cabin description
If you are looking for a charming, log cabin in the heart of the mountains, surrounded by lush nature, then you have found your dream vacation home! This beautiful three bedroom cabin is situated on six acres of lush forest and boasts a rustic feel with bear motif, yet it has all the luxury amenities you need! For this reason, we named it Skip's Bearly Rustic Cabin!!
As you approach the cabin, be prepared to see deer, rabbits, squirrels, birds, and if you're really lucky, possibly a bear! As you enter the cabin, you will be surrounded by adorable bear motif, lots of windows, a gorgeous modern wood kitchen, a stunning stone fireplace, and a cozy living room! Relax on swings and rockers on the porch and enjoy the wildlife!
The cabin has a rustic yet elegant feel to it, with its beautiful hard wood Oak floors, romantic quilts, and bear decorations in every room! The beautifully decorated master bedroom has a king-size bed, large windows which bring nature's beauty inside, and it's own bathroom with shower. Upstairs are two bedrooms-one with a Queen-size, one with daybed with pop-up trundle, great for kids or adults! Upstairs bathroom has a bathtub/shower combo.
NEW! DirecTV service.
Cozy up by the rustling fireplace and have a romantic evening in this rustic yet romanic cabin! Share a bottle of wine (or apple cider) and nibble on some homemade peanut brittle on the porch and watch the birds feed on the feeder! Or make it an adventurous vacation by taking advantage of all the outdoor activities the mountains have to offer from biking, hiking, tubing and rafting, to scenic driving, shopping at the German inspired nearby town called Helen, or just cruising around!
If you love long nature walks with beautiful waterfalls awaiting you at the end, then you will love this area! We are right across the street from Vogel State Park, Helton Creek Falls, and the Appalachian Trailhead! And we are just minutes from incredible waterfalls/easy hiking like Dukes Creek Falls, Raven Cliffs Falls, Anna Ruby Falls, and many, many more! Stop by Papy's Riverfront, just minutes away for a real country breakfast, lunch, or dinner and watch the tubers go by!! Then shop at cute little boutiques and have some delicious kettle corn and fried apple pies!! Don't miss the old fashioned mill on the way home!!

What a lovely cabin!
What a lovely cabin!
Lovely cabin, off the beaten path. Had a wonderful time! Just far enough away from town but not too far. The cabin had everything we needed and more. It's proximity to Vogal State Park is a plus. We packed a picnic lunch and spent the day at the park. Back at the cabin we cooked hotdogs and roasted marshmallows over the fire pit; chatting until bedtime. I highly recommend a stay at Skip's Bearly Rustic. You won't be disappointed.

A Few Difficulties.....
A Few Difficulties.....
The cabin is nice and the bear motif is cute. Some of the problems we encountered were that the dishes/pots/pans were all dirty and greasy upon arrival. The closets were jammed full of the owners personal items leaving little room for our hanging clothes. One upstairs bedroom had no dresser for my daughters things and neither had a rod for hanging clothes in the closets. There is no tub in the masterbath, although, the shower is quite large with two sprayheads which is nice. The masterbath door is a folding closet door which leaves a little to be desired for privacy. There are no window coverings in the cabin which makes you feel a little exposed and the master bedroom window is right on the porch so I woke up one morning with my daughters friend sitting on the porch looking into the bedroom! Great location and more secluded than previous cabins we have rented in Blairsville which was great. My biggest concern though was the electrical system in the house. It appears the wiring may have been done by the homeowner as switches were improperly located and it was difficult to initially figure out how to turn some on.......plus an inordinate number of bulbs were burned out and needed to be replaced. The biggest concern though were the light fixtures that were hanging by bare wires. Also, the "gourmet kitchen" does have a center island with stove, however, there is no overhead vent as is required so when we cooked bacon for breakfast the living room was a little smoky. We were not provided with a key to the basement where the washer and dryer are located.....fortunately, we found a key in the bottom of one of the kitchen drawers and were able to do some laundry as we were only provided with one towel each for the week. Always an adventure when heading out to the cabin.......

Owner response: Thank you for this review. It was so helpful! I just recently switched to a different property manager, and all of the issues mentioned in this review have been addressed. Thanks for your input! The reason you were not provided with a key to basement and access to washer/dryer is because it is off limits to the renters as the basement is not "finished" and meant only for the cleaning crew to use. I will have them put 2 towels out per person from now on. The closet issues have been resolved as well. I will label the light switches for ease of use. The 2 burnt out light bulbs have been replaced. And there are window coverings in the master bedroom now. The upstairs drapes will be in soon!
Week end getaway!

We had a great time staying at your beautiful cabin this past weekend! It was a great get away for us. We did some hiking and seen the Dosoto and the Helton creek Falls. We also went on the trail Byron Reese to the top of the mountain. That was a great hike! Thank you so much for sharing your cabin. We really enjoyed our stay there. It was very peaceful and relaxing! Thank you again, Cheryl and Ron

We just got back from 5 beautiful days at your cabin. I was so surprised at how cool the nights were. Even though it was suppose to be HOT. The cabin is so nice and comfortable. The porch and swing was where I stayed a lot. Just the view and the peace and quiet was so refreshing. There was even a Black Bear spotted just up the road from the cabin. We saw a deer the first night we were there. Vogel State Park is close by. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay. Can't wait til next time

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My name is Michele, and my husband and I are blessed with a beautiful baby girl born February of 2009! We are using the money we make from rentals to pay for our daughter's college!!
Why the Owner Chose Blairsville:
My father had always dreamt of having a log cabin in the mountains and back in 1994 he bought the lot and eventually built the house years later. It has been our vacation home for years, and we love this location for its lush forest and abundant wildlife! We love being so close to so many beautiful waterfalls and such vast scenery! We are so nestled in the forest, that there is no doubt you are on vacation when you are here!!! This home is perfect to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the outside world and modern technology and be submerged in nature...and just forget it all!!!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Being a native Floridian, I am so impressed with the fact that the North Georgia Mountains is the closest place we can visit with the most impressive geological changes! You go from flat land and no scenery to mountains and lush green trees soaring in the sky!! I love the fact that there are deer on the property and we can pick blueberries off the bushes when in season! When we wake up in the morning and open our eyes, we become aware of the absolute serenity of being 1,200 feet above sea level, away from people and close to the birds, crickets, and fireflies! It's so incredibly quiet and peaceful and we love reconnecting with nature! We love hiking to the numerous waterfalls in the area and seeing the views!
