Main level BR with queen bed, upper level bedroom king bed, upper level bedroom queen bed, lower level queen sleeper sofa. Located at 3,000 ft. alt. and on 2.5 + acres, only 06 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge & 60 minutes from Atlanta. The area is filled with nearby family activities.

Antler Ridge Getaway : The cabin is a true log cabin, located near the top of Laurel Ridge Mountain (3,000 elevation) in Blue Ridge, Georgia. The three bedrooms are spacious with queen beds (main level & upper level) in two and king bed (upper level) in the third. One of the full baths is located on the main level across from the queen bed bedroom and the other on the upper level between the master bedroom and the second queen bed bedroom. The Rec Room offers a new queen sleeper sofa with box spring mattress. The Getaway is on a no hunt/ no shoot mountain so wildlife abounds. The deer and wild turkey love to stop and watch as guests relax by the fire pit or on the decks.

The Getaway is on 2.5 plus acres, secluded and has mountain views of Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee. Unlike may cabins near the top of mountain, the Getaway has plenty of level land for children/pets/family to walk around, run and play with no sudden drop offs. It is not in a gated community, nor do you have close neighbors, yet you do not feel totally isolated. The Benton MacKaye Trail, which connects to the Appalachian Trail, is also a short walk from the cabin. A mountain stream is at the foot of our mountain and run along the Benton MacKaye Trail. Downtown Blue Ridge, with its wonderful shops and antiquing, is about 6 minutes away and features Blue Grass bands performing on the square throughout the year, carriage rides and a Farmers’ Market on Saturdays. Downtown Ellijay is about 10 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you!! Very nice cabin! Perfect for a long weekend getaway. We enjoyed the hot tub and making a fire in the outside firepit. Roasted marshmallows-yum!! Played a lot of basketball. The kids really enjoyed the sports table in the downstairs rec room--especially the air hockey. We grilled out a lot and visited some good restaurants.

BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5

This is my first cabin rental and i must say that I really enjoyed myself. We rented the cabin for Valentines Day weekend and we had such a good time that we have decided to make this a yearly Valentine's Day weekend retreat. The cabin was beautiful and the mountain views were breathe taking.

Very old pictures, zero view of mountains!

  • 2 of 5

One of the things that made my wife and I pick this cabin out of the many others we looked at for our yearly vacation was the beautiful view of the mountains. When we arrived at the cabin after almost a 10 hour drive we felt as if we were cheated. There was ZERO view of the mountains unless you walked down the road! The pictures show a nicely taken care of outdoor area which in reality has not had anything done to it in years except blow leaves off the deck. We felt sick and contacted the owner right away with our concerns and were told that trees grow and they can't control the view. I let them know that what they advertised in their pictures was false and we would have gladly driven the 10 hours back home since we could have had the same view of trees anywhere in Ohio. Live and learn, ask how old the pictures are of anywhere you are going to stay! The pictures of this cabin in my opinion are at LEAST 5 years old. Would not return even for HALF the cost.

Owner's Response: Guest was made aware that we update the inside and outside of the cabin every year. There were very heavy rains and flooding in the area the entire week before and day before their arrival. While most owners do not have a landscaped sitting area with mulch, we mulch every six months. Guests were told about the rains and that we were mulching again. The current view is from the upper screened porch, however, we are on the tree surgeons list for improving the view, which we do every two years. Hope to have this completed within two weeks. I never told the guest that we could not control the view. Guest was told that some of the current photos are only 6 months old, while other photos are three years old AND guest told we scheduled the photographer, once again, three weeks ago. You will have to read other guest reviews. This guest was very difficult and stated if I did not refund his money he would make my life miserable and make sure he left a terrible review.

Antler Ridge Getaway Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by all of the amenities, this cabin comes with everything needed for a great vacation. It was clean, and comfy. Actually, after sleeping on the master bed for week, we're going home to replace our own with the same brand! It was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in!

We loved how close it was to so many places we wanted to visit while we were in town, and how great it was to be able to bring our dog.

The service was top notch, and we would recommend this home to anyone!!

Can't wait to come again!!!

Wonderful Cabin for a Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I've been vacationing in the Blue Ridge area for the last 5 years or so and this was the best cabin yet! While I haven't stayed at the same cabin twice, I wouldn't hesitate booking this cabin again. And working with the owner, Sandy, is pleasurable as they have plenty of information to assist and very responsive (usually within hour or two). Cabin was very clean even with it being pet friendly which was great for us since we brought along our dog. Spent a lot of time on the back porch area with the rocking chairs just enjoying the crisp mountain air. As others have mentioned, the drive up can be a bit bumpy in certain places if your first time but you'll get the hang of it...no problems here with a Ford sedan. They have a very nice deck area and fire pit as well but unfortunately mother nature didn't cooperate due to the drought conditions and a county outdoor fire ban in effect. Believe it was unusual as first time the area was like that since I've been coming to Blue Ridge. Overall, highly recommend this cabin and the owners!

Relaxing oasis

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at antler ridge getaway this past weekend. It was amazing! The owners go above and beyond to make guests feel at home, while you're staying there! We are every meal out on one of the screened in porches. The kids loved it! They have it set for your fur baby to feel at home as well, we were sorry we left him at home this time! The hot tub is a very nice addition to this cabin, you can relax and look out into nature! I would reccomend this cabin to anyone!

We loved our cabin! Cozy, compact, yet spacious!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect! Plenty of room indoors and out. It slept six comfortably. The game room, two levels of screened in porch, and the multilevel decks gave this cozy cabin a BIG spacious feel. It is secluded, yet only a few minutes away from downtown, Blue Ridge, and Ellijay. It is also very rustic, which we loved!! We would definitely stay here again!!
