  • my favorite place to escape...

    "This was my second stay at Aska Escape for so many reasons.... The owners have made this cabin home my favorite by sharing what makes it special for them. Extra care and thought for the guest, which is not the case with some cabins as reasonably priced. Everything from the feel of a quality mattress (firm enough for my bad back) and extra soft linens , the new grille & upscale firepit, plus outdoor seating choices and arrangements are perfect for moments alone or together and each with a view! Seeing deer at least twice every day & occasional hummingbirds at one of the feeders is also a highlight for me here. My family with teenagers are never bored either! ? Seriously! There are wii games which are hysterical to watch or play, tons of board games, movies, books, cards, checkers and the outdoor adventures for everyone. This year we booked a few more days to add some more activities to our relaxation time and we are so happy we did. Everything was so easy to do without rushing around this year. We even slept in like crazy but didn't miss a thing :) We went a few miles up the road to the Lilypad 2x for great mining and amazing fancy coffee delights, went about 1 mile to Van Zandt's for anything we forgot to get in town, quick eats, and great tubing 2x.... Blairesville was a new treat for us this year with Vogel State Park, Brasstown Bald, Helton Creek Falls, and the best horseback trail riding experience that I have ever had at A Step Above... all of this done in 2 separate afternoon's without compromising our seemingly much needed slow wake period with fancy mountain cabin 5 star breakfast-brunch I seem only inspired to pull off at Aska Escape. Ha! No kidding! I'm even booked again in August for a girl trip - 4 adult sibling get away so I can share the area, it's activities and majestic scenery, AND stay in "my" luxury cabin home away from home with my sisters. This is it! Thank you again Helene & Todd. I will make this my one and only review because it has already been said and there is a part of me that wants to keep it "in the family"...quite frankly."

  • The Perfect Get Away!

    "I cannot say enough good things about this cabin. Everything was so clean and very cozy! Even though it rained most of the time we were there, my family had a wonderful time and they are already talking about when we can go back again! We enjoyed playing games and watching movies by the gas fire as well as relaxing in the hot tub! The beds are all very comfortable and the cabin provides just about everything you would ever need and more. The owner was so helpful anytime we had a question or concern. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone for a wonderful get away!"

Northwest High Country Travel Tips

North Georgia Mountains Vacation Rentals Set Amongst Captivating Beauty

Georgia is the largest state in the Southeast with an ever increasing population and great industrial development. Georgia is also the leader in the production of paper and board, processed chicken and textile products. Other major manufactured products of the state include food products, apparel, transportation equipment and chemicals of all types. Georgia has always been known for its scenic beauty and ruggedness. The Cherokee Indians that once called this state home referred to it as “The Great Blue Hills of God” (or to them Sah-ka-na’-ga). A large portion of Georgia's northern mountainous region includes over 750,000 acres that make up the Chattahoochee National Forest.

Not only will the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains captivate you but so will the awesome luxury accommodations. Unlike any other lodgings that you have ever experienced, the North Georgia Mountains offer upscale amenities for your stay. The cabins are equipped with complete furnishings, large comfortable beds, fully loaded kitchens, fireplaces, full baths, outdoor barbecues and patio settings, and beautiful architectural detail. They are also fully equipped with all of your indoor recreational needs with high-speed internet hook ups, big screen TVs, DVD players, home theaters, ping pong tables, billiards, foosball and even air hockey. Some rentals also offer hot tubs and saunas for your pleasure. There is no limit to what North Georgia Mountains lodging can offer.

Most of the vacation rentals in the North Georgia Mountains offer spectacular views and access to some of the great places to see here such as Lake Blue Ridge and the Toccoa River, where you can discover great places to fish hike, kayak and go tubing. Since the lake offers some secluded and peaceful settings, it’s a perfect area to relax and enjoy nature's surroundings. North Georgia Mountain cabin rentals deliver all the goods.

Activities Near North Georgia Mountain Lodging

No matter what time of year it is in the North Georgia Mountains, it delivers the goods on a wealth of activities and exciting things to do for the entire family. Ever since the Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad was erected in 1886, the area has been a tourist hotspot. This has allowed for the towns in the area—Dahlonega, Gainesville, Toccoa—to also become upscale vacation destinations while maintaining their charm and small-town feel.

Take the family to enjoy several of the great outdoor recreational activities such as horseback riding, golfing, camping, hiking, biking, sightseeing, hunting and fishing. Hiking is a very popular pastime for visitors to the area as there are many trails to explore. Springer Mountain, which is located about 30 miles from Ellijay lodging, is not far from the Amicalola Falls where you will discover some of the most beautiful creations of water and plant life. The Appalachian Trail is a great place to explore as it winds through the Georgia Mountain counties of Lumpkin, Union, White, Habersham and Rabun for nearly 80 miles before it crosses into North Carolina. The Cohutta Wilderness also has several great trails that include the Jacks River Trail, where in the summer you can see literally thousands of beautiful butterflies floating above it.

There are also some great easygoing activities such as shopping for antiques in Blue Ridge, taking tours of the town by car or motorcycle, attending the festivals and mountain fairs, purchasing apples from any of the many apple houses in the area, taking an excursion train from Blue Ridge vacation rentals, or dining in any of the great restaurants in town.

North Georgia Mountains Weather

North Georgia Mountain weather can be just as great as the scenery here. The summers here are warm and mild with comfortable evening temperatures. July and August are usually the warmest months with highs reaching into the high 80s and 90s Fahrenheit. Of course, the temperatures are cooler as you climb into higher elevations. Summer nights are still warm but tend to cool off to more tolerant temperatures as the sun sets. Humidity is also frequent in Georgia, although it’s not as extreme as southern Georgia.

December through February are some of the coldest months for the area, where daytime highs only reach to 50 degrees in the daytime and nighttime lows can travel to below freezing. The snow will usually blanket the mountains about twice a year. However, there are some seasons when there is no snow accumulation at all. Precipitation is usually between 50 and 80 inches per year and the majority of it is winter rainfall.

Getting to the North Georgia Mountains Cabin Rentals

You have a few options when you decide to fly into Georgia. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is one of the busiest and largest in the world, so the logical choice would most likely be to fly into Hartsfield. It is the prime destination for travelers to this state for business and pleasure. From there, you can easily rent a car in order to continue your journey to the North Georgia Mountains.

Once you’ve hit the road from the airport, you can choose several scenic routes to find your way to the mountain range, although the major highway is going to be State Route 19 up the middle of the state and the I-85/985 to the northeast. When those two fork near Suwanee, the 985 takes you up through Gainesville while the 85 takes you up to Carnesville. You can choose to explore various routes and roads along the way too, like the Chattahoochee River Road which is a beautiful and colorful side route to take, and the Tallulah River Road which crosses the mountains and puts you on U.S. 441 just north of the Dillard House. The Cohutta Loop is another option which encircles the southern end of the Cohutta Mountains. Last but not least, you can take scenic 197 which is a highway that offers many great stops along the way as it winds for over 50 miles from its humble beginnings near Cornelia. The route numbers in this region change without warning so a good map and patient attitude are musts!
