Recent Blue Ridge reviews
Great location for active pursuits
"We chose this place based on its proximity to hiking trails and Lake Blue Ridge. The cabin is located in the ASKA recreational area and it was only a short drive to the trail heads and boat ramps. We took advantage of the numerous kitchen amenities by cooking breakfasts and dinners in the cabin and eating in Blue Ridge for lunches. The outdoor living space made for a scenic cup of coffee in the morning and a great place to chat beside the outdoor fireplace by night. The drive into the property is pretty easy with paved roads all the way up until the final gravel driveway beside the house. The owners were super easy to work with and my wife's 51st birthday could not have been celebrated in a more beautiful spot. We saw lots of wildlife including deer, a raccoon and several bunnies. No bears! The drive into Blue Ridge where many of the nice bars and restaurants are located is about 20 or so minutes traveling most of the way on Aska Rd.. Be aware that we were stopped on our way back to the cabin by a Fannin County police roadblock on Sunday evening. We were later told by locals that this is a regular thing as the weekend comes to a close and everyone comes in from the water and heads home. Overall a great value and a wonderful stay."

"I absolutely loved staying here and can't wait to come back. Fishing was great with plenty of river and trout on along a nice private trail. There's nothing like catching your own breakfast. The shooting range is an awesome 100 yard shooting range including two steel targets, one for pistol and one for rifles. Ping! Perfect place to travel for people into outdoor activities. The amenities are great with a hot tub, jacuzzi, satellite tv, Internet, and everything in a kitchen one would need. Oh by the way the view is unbelievable!!!! Buster and Dixie are two adorable and very well behaved pups. I went with my wife and my best friend and you could not remove the smile off of our faces while during our stay!"

"I don’t normally write reviews but since my husband is still thanking me for finding this cabin, I feel I should give credit where credit is due.
My husband and I spent 3 days in mid-October at the Bear’s Lair and had a pleasant and relaxing experience. Primarily “flatland” drivers, we found the trek leading to the cabin in our low to the ground van an adventure once we got off the main road but if we did it everyone else can. We also made sure we were back at the cabin before dark as not many street lights once off main road.
Being 65+, having everything on one floor and having the parking pad so near to the front entrance made it easy to unload bags and groceries and retrieve glasses, maps, etc left in car.
Mattress was comfortable and towels, bedding, all the rooms, kitchen, bathrooms and especially the hot tub were clean and inviting, (and I am picky). The hot tub was a blessing to come back to after hiking and exploring the area. One of the highlights was the beautiful scenic drive through the mountains to get to Amicolala Falls. It was also very spectacular to watch the sun rise gloriously from behind the mountain in view from the porch each morning we were there.
Ed Garcia was very helpful, professional, and easy to contact. Any questions or issues we had were quickly resolved. The cabin provided ample privacy within a quiet residential area surrounded by other cabins. Having never rented a cabin from owner we did not know what to expect but I would definitely recommend staying at the Bear’s Lair. Thank you Mr. Garcia for sharing your lovely cabin with us."
