Recent Blue Ridge reviews
Loved this place as well as the owners!
"This was my family's first time visiting the North Georgia mountains as we usually travel on up to the Smoky Mountains. We decided on the Blue Ridge area this time and started investigating places to stay. This cabin seemed quite affordable, and the pictures posted above looked incredible. We contacted the owners and arranged to stay in their cabin in early October. Due to a family medical emergency, I had to contact the owners again and tell them we would not be able to make it for the days reserved. They seemed genuinely concerned for my family and not just how it would affect their rental calendar. They were extremely caring and were willing to work with us on a better time to visit. This was such a blessing to me and my family, and we were able to work out a later date. The Priest Cabin was exactly what we needed for a relaxing getaway! The river view was even more beautiful than in the pictures! We loved just sitting and listening to the rush of the river with no other noise than the local wildlife. It was pretty cold and drizzly the first few day of our stay, but the cabin kept us nice and toasty. We were fine just using the heaters even though the wood burning stove looked quite efficient. We loved the décor inside, and it reminded us of exactly what it was, a mountain cabin! The TV's and internet worked great, and we had no problem with cell reception on the porch. The basement bedroom and bathroom were also nice and didn't make you feel as if you were in a basement. We all commented on how comfortable the living room couch and love seat were, and I believe we all took an evening nap there at one time or another. Overall, this was a great, comfortable, relaxing place to stay that gave you that mountain feel we all want to experience. The upper porch view alone was worth the stay! This cabin is a little ways out from central Blue Ridge, but in the end I believe that is what adds to its charm. The ride out from town was quite scenic and picturesque, with the last few miles to the cabin being the best of all! In the midst of the awesome mountain views, we saw all kinds of wildlife in their natural elements. What fun we had every day driving around exploring the area and them coming home to a lovely place to relax and unwind. I am so glad we visited the Blue Ridge area this year, and that God led us to the Priest family. We are so grateful that they shared their awesome cabin with us. We would love to visit again!"

"We stayed for 3 nights to get away from the daily grind and this cabin was perfect! Great views on the top of the mountain as well as secluded away at the end/edge of the top. The cabin was cozy and very relaxing! It has everything you could think you would need for your stay, with an excellent movie collection, and set up for entertainment as well. Down town blue ridge was a short ride away; an awesome little town with great restaurants and very welcoming. We went fly fishing on the Toccoa River and a couple of hikes as well. There is a bunch to do close by if you wanted the mountain adventure however; just lounging at the cozy retreat was excellent so it was hard to decide. Everywhere we went was enjoyable!! Thanks Dave for a great stay, we hope we can stay again soon!!!"

Comfortable home, well furnished, gorgeous view; 4.5 stars
"This is a wonderful place for a get-away. The view of the lake is lovely and changes constantly with the Sun, clouds, rain, fog, and wind. Every time you look, the lake and mountains have taken on a new personality. It's a great place to view the Fall colors.
The house itself has all the amenities a couple needs to allow them to just relax and enjoy the privacy, the view, and the clean fresh air.
The road up to the cabin is 'interesting'. I've driven roads with hairpin turns before so I had no trouble climbing the steep, narrow road in my manual transmission Mazda. You don't need a jeep. But be aware it could be a challenging climb for inexperienced drivers.
I gave this place 5 stars, but there are a few minor 'misses' that could be easily fixed:
1. Both coffee makers require the Melita #4 V-shape coffee filters, but the only filters provided were the standard Mr Coffee type. I made small pots of coffee to avoid an accident.
2. NOT ENOUGH TOWELS. (??) I could only find 2 set of towels for each bathroom. That was ok for our morning showers the first day, but what about using the Hot Tub that night? And what about using the shower and hot tub the next day? Guests should NOT have to wash and dry the towels every day.
3. GREEN firewood. Really green. I've used fireplaces for years, and even though I brought firesticks and kindling to get the logs going, I still wound up with a room full of smoke and had to open the door and windows. It took about 2 hours for the wood to dry out enough to really start burning hot before I could think about adding any more logs.
4. The hot tub cover can't be fully lifted off. I had to lift it mostly off and hope it didn't fall back on us. The lights in the hot tub weren't working. The plastic step to get into the hot tub is kind of 'cheesy'. It needs to be replaced with a larger, solid set of wood steps.
--These 4 items aren't show-stoppers. Visitors just need to be aware - but more importantly the cabin owners ought to make these few changes so that the cabin can get the SIX stars it deserves."
