Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a GREAT time,, just got home about 7:30 tonight.. it was a LONG trip home with two

little ones! Our stay at your cabin was AWESOME!!

My daughter and I both were talking about what a GREAT decorator you are!!! We both

love to decorate our homes too,, you have great taste and everything was perfect!! So many

special touches there... feels like home.

Hunter our grandson loved his "Bear room" and chairs!! He started to cry this morning when we had

to leave.. he got so attached to his cabin! Also the deer in the front yard was a BIG hit... how

wonderful to sit on the porch,, drink coffee and watch them! We bought 2 big bags of corn for them.

We enjoyed the cool weather so much,, went to the Apple Festival, Burt's farm, Dahlonega Gold Rush

and Blue Ridge. We did a lot and are tired but its a good tired! It was such a nice break for all

of us and we are so BLESSED to have been able to stay at Bear Hugs !

Both my parents stayed well and ok while we were out of town,, which was a great relief also

We would love to come back to Bear Hugs sometime soon! My cousins from Marietta came by

for a few hours on Friday and they were so impressed also with your cabin. We will send anyone

we can your way and tell them how awesome your cabin is.

Again,,, we had a wonderful time and LOVED your home!

Thanksgiving in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We took our three children and their spouses along with 6 grandchildren for a first of many Thanksgivings together. The accommodations at Bear Hugs Cabin were perfect for this size group! Very comfortable rooms in a well maintained cabin. Sitting on the porch during mornings and evenings feeding the deer (went thru 40 lbs. of corn) was great for the young kids. Went down to the river park, into East Ellijay and walked thru shops and simply relaxed in the beautiful north GA mountains. Very secure environment with all the amenities you could need. Owner (Donna) very gracious whenever contacted. Would highly recommend.

Perfect for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Bear Hugs cabin for a quick staff retreat, and we couldn't have picked a better location. We even had 2 babies under 2 years old, and the layout was perfect to keep them safe and entertained. All needed amenities were provided, and even some extras like body wash and plenty of pillows. The owner Donna was wonderful to work with and extremely easy to communicate with. We will definitely be staying here again!

Beautiful cabin with plenty of space.

  • 5 of 5

4 ladies traveled to Ellijay to attend a funeral. We arrived late at night to the gated community. We were greeted by a furry friend offthe porch and when we went in.. we were all pleasantly surprised. The cabin provided more than adequate sleeping areas(4bedrooms) with comfortable mattresses and plenty of bathrooms! It was clean and well maintained. We woke up to multiple deer eating in the front yard. There were 2 bucks and a doe. We all really enjoyed watching them.

The price was very nice especially for a 1 night visit. I compared local hotel prices (average 100$ a night for two queen bed room) and for about 40$ more we had a whole house, 4 separate bedrooms, pool table, and plenty of room. This place would definitely be great for multiple small families to vacation in. We rode to Amicalola falls and it was beautiful. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone !

To note: even for elderly- there is a downstairs entrance and living area. But to join the kitchen area - stairs would have to be maneuvered.

Views were lovely!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your wonderful review ! We enjoyed having you as our guests. Yes, our elderly guests can enter on the lower front door entrance (no steps) or they could also enter through the back door where there are only two steps to get into the kitchen and the main level!
