About the property

Enjoy all the adventure and serene beauty that Blue Ridge has to offer!

Vista Ridge Retreat is your escape from the hustle and bustle of the real world! Our beautiful log home sits at the end of a mile-long gravel road in the heart of the Aska Adventure Area near the Toccoa River and just 15 miles from charming downtown Blue Ridge, GA. 1-King, 2-Queen, 8-Twin.

The Aska Adventure Area is known for its abundance of hiking trails including large sections of the Appalachian Trail and the Benton MacKaye Trail, as well as the Toccoa River, a favorite among fishermen, canoers, kayakers, and tubers.

Although our cabin sits at the top of Pine Mountain ridge and offers stunning year-round views of the Chattahoochee National Forest, the drive in is quite easy and manageable (no 4WD needed - but it never hurts!). MINIVANS DO NOT DO WELL ON THIS MOUNTAIN - PLEASE DO NOT BRING A MINIVAN! RVS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY. There is only one home within sight and because it sits down the mountain from us you will enjoy complete and total privacy at Vista Ridge Retreat. Relax and take in the breathtaking views from our porch swing or the hammock on the screened-in porch.

Vista Ridge Retreat comfortably sleeps 14 people. On the main level there is a bedroom with a queen bed and a full bathroom. The upstairs loft is a large room with a king log bed, a full bathroom and a small balcony. Both of these rooms offer stunning views. In the basement there is a bedroom with a queen bed, a full bath plus a LARGE kids’ room with eight built-in bunk beds and a play area loaded with toys, games, DVDs and more!

There is so much to see in do in the Aska Adventure area and the Chattahoochee National Forest is LITERALLY right out our back door. But if you just can’t leave the world behind, don’t worry! Vista Ridge Retreat has HIGHSPEED WIRELESS INTERNET available and three TVs: a 42” in the living room, 32" upstairs in the loft bedroom, and a 60" in the basement. The main floor and loft are both connected to Dish and the third TV in the kids’ playroom is connected to a DVD player. All TVs have Chromecast devices attached so you can connect your favorite Youtube, Netflix, or Hulu shows directly to the TV by simply downloading the Google Home app and connecting to the devices.

Although the house has central heating and air all rooms have ceiling fans to keep you cool in the warmer months and in the cooler months the beautiful stone-surrounded wood stove is the easiest and most efficient way to keep the cabin cozy.

In addition to an indoor dining area there is plenty of outdoor deck space to enjoy! Off the main level there is a screened in deck with a dining area, a porch swing and a hammock. There are also two porch swings as you enter the house and a short walkway off the side of the house to the screened in hot tub area.

Last but not least, our house is fully equipped! We have a fully stocked kitchen (dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker, and even hot tub friendly wine glasses!) and plenty of high-quality towels and bed linens.

About Jason

After searching high and low for our perfect getaway from Atlanta we found the perfect mountain home to enjoy for years to come! Unfortunately, we work full time and can't enjoy it as much as we'd like, so we're offering it as a rental until we can. Our cabin is incredibly accessible, yet very peaceful and private. We do everything we can to ensure that your stay is a wonderful one and hope that you'll return year after year!

Jason purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Jason chose Blue Ridge

Vista Ridge Retreat is in the heart of the Aska Adventure Area, just a few minutes drive from one of the most popular Toccoa River tubing companies. The cabin is incredibly peaceful and private, yet very easily accessed from main roads (not many twists and turns!). It is a very manageable drive from Atlanta - generally right at two hours - so a great way to get away from it all.

What makes this cabin unique

The Chattahoochee National Forest is right out our back door! You can literally step out the door and hike for hours along the ridge or deeper into the forest. While we haven't been ambitious enough to attempt it yet, we believe the Benton Mackaye Trail can be accessed on foot (eventually).

The cabin was beautiful! Only recommendation that I would make is drive a truck if you have one. We drove up from Florida in a Hyundai Sonata. There were some parts where it was a little hard for the car to get up the drive. Other than that it was perfect!

Relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

The cabin had everything we wanted, it was secluded, had great views and was comfortable. The hot tub was great. Our only problem was getting the rental car up the driveway! We saw Bear and Deer.

Nice home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home. It was a fun area to stay in. The hot tub was fantastic after a long day of hiking. View from the screened in porch for my morning coffee was amazing.
