Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

This cabin features great furnishings, wi-fi, open loft, two master bedrooms, with 30-foot ceilings in living room and fully-equipped kitchen, impeccable attention to detail in building, on six acres, backing onto 50 undeveloped acres, king-size Italian leather sleigh bed, solid surface countertops, gas cooking (rare for the area), and a travertine master shower.

Outside, you will find eight-foot decking on three sides, with large, very private hot tub, on the basement level, and, on the deck, rocking chairs, capturing a year-round mountain view. You also have a hammock at your disposal. You also have a Weber gas grill with side cooker.

You are minutes from horseback riding, hiking, bike trails, rafting, antique shops, the Cohuttas, the Chattahoochee National Forest, and fishing. You are a five-minute walk to tranquil horse pastures. You will pass within half a mile of downtown Blue Ridge when going or coming from almost anywhere.

This cabin is a perfect, pet-friendly, romantic or family getaway.

I hope to find guests who will come to consider it a home away from home.

Although the cabin sleeps seven, it only comfortably holds five adults. The first master, a loft, has a king size bed with a great view. The second master has a queenl-sized log bed. The third bedroom is a full/twin bunk arrangement, which means that a fifth adult would need to sleep in the bunk room, where there are no accessible closets, but drawers. Ample closet space across the hall..

When inquiring about booking, please let me know if you are bringing dogs (very welcome) and, if so, how many? That way your quote can be accurate with the nonrefundable $20 fee per furry friend.

About The Owner

Though I have traveled extensively in the past, I'm now quite content living in Atlanta, visiting New York for theater, settling in at the cabin, and walking on the beach. I love to read, love Netflix, and adore all domesticated animals. I rent this cabin because it would just seem like a waste for it to sit empty when I can't be there.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1995

Why The Owner chose Northwest High Country

Privacy, view from upstairs mater bedroom, the open layout, and the stacked stone fireplace, those are what sold me. I'm also very happy with the two new window treatments outside and in front. I can spend hours each day on my porch, in my rocking chair, reading a book, catching the views.

What makes this cabin unique

I adore the view from the upstairs master, and the dogs have room to roam without bothering anyone else. TVs have some of the latest gadgets, and I spend some relaxing time with them getting caught up on shows.

I love the large balcony and the privacy. I'm extremely content, driving home, watching the dogs absolutely exhausted from another adventure. The privacy, perhaps most of all.

Comfortable, secluded cabin. We had a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over new year's eve and had a fantastic time. The owner was easy to work with and responded to emails quickly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and we didn't encounter any issues that would even warrant calling the caretaker. The bedding, floors, and kitchen/bathroom surfaces were all very clean when we arrived. Beds were comfortable, appliances all worked, and the hot tub was great. It only got cool enough one night to turn the fireplace on, but when we did it worked great and our dogs enjoyed laying in front of it.

Before arriving, the owner gave some very detailed and thoughtfully typed out instructions on how to get to the house, how to use the appliances and hot tub, and how to access the door key. She also included advice that the upstairs shower has an issue with low water pressure and shouldn't be used. That was a shame, because it looks like a very nice shower, but there are two other showers downstairs so it didn't really affect our stay. The drive up to the cabin does include some unpaved roads that are a bit rough, but as long as you drive slow it's fine. We were in a relatively small front-wheel-drive vehicle and didn't have any issues.

Another reviewer complained about ladybugs and/or Asian beetles (I wouldn't be able to tell the difference); while we did see some dead ladybugs on a windowsill and saw one or two fly in off the porch, it hardly seems worth mentioning. This was a secluded cabin in wooded hills. The possibility of bugs is pretty much par for the course. Calling it an "infestation" is ridiculous, and I'm not sure what the owner could possibly do to prevent ladybugs from flying in an open door.

Overall we loved our stay here and would come back in the future. Thanks!

Horrific experience, cabin infested with biting Asian beetles- stayed for a few hours with my children -we left as soon as possible and after being promised a refund the owner kept the entire payment for the week. Dirty.

Very nice & relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The cabin was larger than our home so it was really nice to have the extra space. It was peaceful, close to the town of Blue ridge, clean and well equipped. The instruction sheets were very helpful and also gave us local places to visit. My husband used the hot tub and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The surrounding property and area was beautiful and trees were in bloom, not to mention the flowers of every color. Our two dogs enjoyed the stay also and the older one liked to sit by the gas fireplace and sleep. The full basement was a great place for are other dog to play and chase a ball since we did not let then roam free outside. We enjoyed our stay and would go back again- when it snows.

Great for a long weekend

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was at the very top of the mountain so it is was difficult and took us a bit longer than expected to get there, but we are from Florida and not used to driving in mountains so that seems normal. The cabin had a great view and the hot tub was very easy to use. We were able to watch the sunrise/sunset from the rocking chairs every day. The cabin had ample space for our party of 5 and could easily fit 7 people if needed. We called the caretaker twice during our stay and she was very polite and willing to help each time. We used the kitchen for dinner each night. The appliances worked fine and we had enough pots/pan/dishes to cook and eat on for everyone. There was a bit of a sugar ant problem on some of the kitchen counters but there was enough space to not use the certain counters and still be able to cook and prep. The cabin is very close to many tourist areas and we didn't have any problems getting to and from where we wanted to go. It is a smaller cabin but I felt it helped keep everyone out of the bedrooms and together in the living room. I would definitely recommend this cabin and look forward to returning soon.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted that you enjoyed my home. I, too, particularly enjoy the row of fabulous rocking chairs with matching tables on my deck. Above basement almost 2,000 square feet, so not too small bit very open and two of the rooms just average size. (The third, a loft, takes up the entire second floor, with great views from the king bed.) I noticed the ants when I got here, just on one counter, nowhere else in the cabin. Probably five years since I've had that problem, but we're in the woods, so these things happen We don't know until a guest reports it, I see it, or my cleaning crew does. The ants seem to be gone. A mystery how they got in. Off topic, if anyone is wondering about the Jack Russell dog showing up, he has moved. Apparently, he did that stunt with newcomers because sometimes people would feed him. But he's gone, and I've seen no dogs wandering around except my own, exploring my adjacent, undeveloped land. You are welcome back any time, and try the nearby white water Ocoee River rafting. Before I bought this place, several times I made the drive up just for the rafting.
