The main floor includes the living room, dining area, kitchen and master bedroom in main floor which has a very private jacuzzi tub for your enjoyment, a full bath and king sized bed.

Blue Ridge Activities: Blue Ridge contains many unique art galleries, antique shops,specialty shops, neighboring apple orchard and eateries, Vogel State Park just 20 min. away, leisurely shopping and dining any time of the year. Don't miss the free summertime seasonal Blue Grass concerts and gatherings by the Toccoa River. And don't miss the Fanning County Park and Recreational Complex just in back of the hill by our property (it's great to ride bikes in, running, basketball or a wonderful workout from our place. After all that exercise you deserve a break for coffee and fresh fried apple pie from Mercier's Apple Orchard or enjoy cool ice cream or hot chocolate. Also,in the center of town is the old railroad depot which is listed on the National Registry of Historical Places. At Lake Blue Ridge you can rent a pontoon or boat,or just enjoy the view of the surrounding mountains.

We have several excellent rivers and creeks in the North Georgia Mountains. The Toccoa River, also located in Fannin

County is renowned for fly fishing. The waters of the Ocoee River, in Polk County Tennessee,offers exceptional kayaking and white water rafting. Oh, let me just mention that Blueridge has a drive-in movie theater 'The Swan' but just in case it rains there is a regular cinema. Also, if you like drag racing check the racetrack by Sugarcreek out (across from Hwy.5).

Calm and peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at the Socarra's property and enjoyed a quiet and relaxing weekend away from distraction. The property was found to be exactly as advertised, well stocked and overall very comfortable. We spent most of our time out on the wrap around porch, roasting s'mores at the fire pit and grilling on the charcoal grill. The kitchen is fully stocked and the new couches in the living room were extremely comfortable. We did not take advantage of it, but the property is near sports fields and some hiking trails as well. If we ever decide to spend more time in the blue ridge area, my wife and I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Tucked away gem

  • 5 of 5

A group of 5 of us stayed over Spring Break and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Property is very close to the town of Blue Ridge with a great little downtown with shows and restaurants to explore. There are several grocery stores close by to stock up on once you got there. The area has plenty of hiking from beginner to advanced and wonderful horseback riding (shout out to Blanche Manor). The house itself is well maintained, spacious and well stocked. The house could easily have fit more people. The property the house is on is the real gem here. Close to a main road into town, but tucked at the end of the road it seems as if you are on your own. The stream provided hours of time for the kids playing with the crayfish, spotting salamanders or moving rocks around. The wrap around porch and large windows overlook the creek and the property and the way it is facing you feel as if you have the woods to yourselves. We stocked the bird feeders the first day and spent the week watching all the birds, including hummingbirds. Overall a great place to stay.

Peacefully relaxing secluded location

  • 5 of 5

What can you say when you are taking a vacation in a beautiful home on a beautiful creek. The numerous windows let the beauty come into the house, in any direction you could hope. The view from the master bedroom was UNBELIEVABLE. I could not have asked for a better location or home. The home was wonderfully stocked, comfortable and well taken care of. You can tell this owner cares for her property and her guests. LOVED it and going back again for Thanksgiving. My dog and I had a blast on the trails around the property playing hide and go seek. I just wish I had brought some bird feed. There are birds all over the place and bird feeders hanging on the deck. I saw deer tracks on one of the trails and would have liked to have seen some deer. Unfortunately, the weather was not great so I could not go out to the hiking trails in the area, but that will be my next trip, but I did get to see snow! I just LOVED it.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

  • 1 of 5

We spent the week of Thanksgiving at the cabin and quoted a total of 10. It never occurred to me to include the little kids 6 and under in the total. We had a total of 13 total for part of the week. We did an excellent job of cleaning up and followed the departing rules to the last detail. My deposit was withheld for "excessive linen use". The owner stated there were pictures and a cleaning quote but would never provide them. I noticed on the reviews she had done this in the past and assumed it was a bad business deal, but now realize it is actually a bad business practice. Do not stay here.

Owner's Response: YOU BE THE JUDGE!! The renter abused the opportunity to surpass the total of registered guests from 10 to up to 15 according to our guest book, she even admitted to this on her post!! We have been in this business at least 8 years and you can be the judge from our very good rating and return guests. In addition to exceeding the number of guests and bypassing the owners, the place was left in terrible and suboptimal condition. It took the property managers TWO consecutive DAYS and TWO cleaning STAFF to clean the place and put it back to rental condition!! This is the point of the economics that the renter fails to understand. We have been using the same management and cabin cleaning company for the time that I have rented out (approx. 8 years). According to them it was one of the worst exits they have ever seen. I do have copies of receipts and visitors register.The excessive linen comes from having to dry clean ALL of the comforters and steam clean the fabric on the sofa. Not from towels or linen. According to the managers description, walls, sofa, bedspreads, door mirrors, windows were heavily smudged by a syrup / chocolate like dried off substance. Doors, mirrors and windows as well. Requiring washing and scraping off, manually. The kitchen was a horror with heavily soiled pans. Refrigerator not emptied and not picked up. The renter insisted on the refund from shortly after departure and after several calls from her and explaining that I was waiting for the final property managers bill including two days and two peoplecrew for cleaning plus streaming and drycleating and thr renters continuous calls, texting, emailing and threatening to side A BAD Review I told her to do just that. I did not refund the deposit, this being the first time that I withhold 100%. Few other instances I have had to keep a partial deposit to cover fees and repairs. This time my expenses exceeded the security. And she exceeded the number of people in her party from the beginning!! Dishonest. I guess the kids to do whatever they wanted and the parents got to relaxand not clean up after them . YOU BE THE JUDGE! !

Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the cabin! Our three kids (5, 6 & 9) had a great time exploring the creek and hunting for gold. My husband and I barely moved from the rocking chairs on the porch. When I did go for a walk, I found the cabin was right next to a big park. The location was great -- practically across the street from Mercier Orchards (yummy fried apple pie) and just a hop, skip from downtown Blue Ridge. But we were so comfy at the cabin that we didn't want to leave! Look forward to our next visit. Thank you!!
