About the property

What could be more fun than a private, peaceful cabin retreat nestled on the Coosa Creek. For our returning guests you will find the same great place you have always enjoyed with a few enhancements, including a full-length screen porch with dining table and swing, a tin roof and a backyard that includes a fire pit, sitting area and hammock to overlook the creek. If this is your first time considering to stay here, please read what prior guests have said! Plenty of outdoor activities are outside your back door including fishing, swimming and hiking. You will also find the following conveniently picking...ziplining...white water back riding...ample a full service spa just to name a few! The mountain air is fresh and the mountains are BEAUTIFUL!!

Bear Creek Lodge is a place for EVERYONE! Located on a small bend of Coosa Creek, this well decorated, quaint mountain cabin has everything you are looking for. Nestled in the woods at the end of the street, you will experience quiet and privacy as you enjoy all it has to offer! There are 2 levels of wrap around porches. Mom and dad can relax in the 5 person hot tub on the lower level while keeping an eye on the kids playing in the creek. The upper level has plenty of rockers for the lazy feeling that you get being in the fresh mountain air. Did we mention BOTH levels have swings? Inside you will find cozy chairs to curl up by the wood burning fire place and read a good book or nap. At night have fun making s'mores by the outdoor fire ring! The built-out basement with air hockey table add extra room and fun to this great cabin! Check out the list of amenities!

Like to eat outside? Then enjoy your family dinner in the screened area of the deck that has a gas grill for your use. Prefer to eat out? There are several restaurants to pick from in Blairsville - only 12-minutes away (and for creekside grilling provisions, you are only 10-Minutes from the Wal-Mart)! I will send you a list of places to go that are sure to please even the finicky eater of the family!

When you start to get cabin fever there are plenty of outside activities located near by to get you out of the house and enjoying nature. Hiking, horse-back riding, white water rafting and a casino are not far! I have the perfect place to send you! Have you ever seen a dry river bed fill up? You will have the opportunity if you visit TVA and Ocoee Whitewater Rafting Center (home of the 1996 Olympics whitewater rafting events). This is a unique day trip you won't want to miss!! The cabin offers easy access to local shopping and attractions. You are secluded enough to take in the beautiful views and wildlife but you are 12 minutes from Blairsville shopping and stores.

E-mail me with any questions! Let's make your reservation! You will not be disappointed! We have people coming back year after year! Make Bear Creek Lodge part of your family memories!

About Karen Fergusson

We have always enjoyed getting away to the mountains of North Georgia. When we first visited Bear Creek Lodge, it gave us that 'Welcome home' feeling from the minute we walked in the front door. All we needed to do was adjust the thermostat, check the hot tub setting and our most relaxing vacation started. When the property was listed for sale in 2012, we jumped at the opportunity to continue the tradition Barb and Todd started. From our family to yours...WELCOME HOME! We know you will want to come back!

Why Karen Fergusson chose Blairsville

We chose to buy a vacation home in Blairsville, Georgia because it is an easy drive from our home in Atlanta but it is far enough away from the rush of everyday living. The quiet, seclusion of our cabin gave us exactly what we were looking for when we said we wanted a cabin in the mountains. The wildlife is exciting to see and there are plenty of outdoor activities (hiking, boating, white water rafting, fishing and more!) within a short driving distance.

What makes this cabin unique

If you want seclusion but still be close to town, you have found the right cabin. Nestled at the end of the lane, there is no traffic, only a creek and plenty of quiet privacy. You can plan a day away from the cabin or be very happy staying home wading in the creek, resting in the hot tub and just plain relaxing on the porch or the back yard by the creek. There is plenty of room for the kids to go and hang out leaving peace and quiet for the adults in your group.

Owner's Response: Phillip, Thank you for your review, we strive for and pride ourselves on our almost impeccable 5/5 star reviews and regret that even after speaking with you multiple times during your visit to answer your questions, including your interest in purchasing the cabin we did not earn a 5/5 star review. The bed size is fully disclosed in the property listing and we have actually had complements that the sleeping arrangements bring people together - lol! We always ask our guests to tell us up front if there something that does not merit a 5/5 rating. In this case we were surprised to get a four star review. Sincerely, Brian and Karen

Great, Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend in the N GA mountains. The property was clean, organized, and as described. The creek was great - the kids enjoyed playing in it. We especially enjoyed having a hot tub to relax in.

We had a wonderful dinner on the porch one evening with the babble of the creek in the background. It was nice and cool with the shade of the trees.

We will probably look to book again when we are back in the area!

Fun family weekend in the woods

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home! Stayed for 2 nights with family and enjoyed every minute. Plenty of space, the decks were perfect for enjoying the creek, and the amenities were some of the best we had in all of our VRBO rentals. Would highly recommend this property!

Post-Thanksgiving Bliss

As always, we had a wonderful time at the cabin! This year we even ventured out to cut down our own Christmas tree!!!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you spent some holiday time at Bear Creek Lodge. When we first discovered the Christmas tree farm off Owltown Rd was 10 minutes from the cabin we jumped on the opportunity to partake in the tradition of cutting our own Christmas tree. We are happy you were able to have the same opportunity. We hope you will make this an annual tradition and come visit again. Sincerely, Brian and Karen

Wonderful! Perfect for a family get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We spend Thanksgiving in North Georgia each year, but this was our first time staying in Blairsville. I don’t think we could have found a more perfect spot for our family. The cabin is fantastic! We spent a couple days letting our children explore outside, fish in the stream, then warm up with hot chocolate inside. There was plenty to do without ever leaving the property! Definitely one of our favorite places to stay!❤️

Owner's Response: We are so happy you spent Thanksgiving at Bear Creek Lodge and made some great family memories. Our children love coming in and using the Kuerig after being outside on a chilly day, they think it’s a hot chocolate fountain - lol! We hope you will consider visiting Bear Creek Lodge for another holiday getaway. Sincerely, Brian and Karen
