About The Owner

The Owners, Sam Beale and Mark Edwards have been best friends for over 30 years. We met in college and both have careers in the Construction Management and Real Estate Development fields. We both have families who also share a passion for the outdoors, especially hiking, biking, horse back riding, and antique hunting in the North Georgia mountains. This cabin is the perfect weekend retreat to meet all of our outdoor lifestyle needs, and an excellent place to get away for relaxation.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2006

Why The Owner chose Cherry Log

We have always dreamed of owning a cabin in the north Georgia mountains and learned of this 4-acre property with a cozy cabin that fit our needs perfectly. We chose to renovate/update and rent the cabin in order to share our private cabin atop Prince Mountain with others who have a passion for the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and to help with the annual expenses involved with owning our dream property.

What makes this cabin unique

We mostly enjoy the incredible view. In the morning, we look down on the low-lying clouds that fill the multiple visible valleys while the sun rises, then throughout the day we overlook as far as the weather will allow, and finally overlook the glow of down-town Blue Ridge in the distant valley at night. We also enjoy roasting marshmellows in the stone fireplace, or outside in the stone fire ring on the mountainside.

Loved the view! Cabin could use some TLC.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was wonderful. We all enjoyed our time by the fireplace, relaxing, and cooking meals in the kitchen. We sat in the hot tub, and on the balcony and enjoyed the views.

Beware the road to the cabin is treacherous.

Our Prius was only able to make it up the hill when we emptied it and pushed it up.

The cabin could use a deep clean and some TLC.

Awesome place to stay and get away from the hustle in the citu.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the views of the rolling mountains, hot tub and wonderful cabins interior. Beds were very comfortable and cabin was in good shape. Two wheel drive cars are a bit tough to get to the cabin, but we managed. Overall great experience.

what a wonderful long weekend

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was all and more than advertised, starting with the spectacular view. What a way to start the day... this was my 1st cabin rental, so i came prepared, but as it turned out I was was over prepared, everything that you could possibly need for a secluded stay was provided, all that was needed was food and firewood. The residing neighbors were super friendly, as were their dogs, one of the neighbors even gave us some firewood and the use of his golf cart. we could not have had a better weekend with our family.. Thanks again for a wonderful time.

Nice place with issues getting up the mountain.

  • 2 of 5

Everything was nice except for the last part of the drive up to the cabin. It's not passable for regular cars or SUVs. We tried both. Noticed in the guest book that the people who had just rented before us couldn't get up the hill at all! Hiking your stuff up and down that steep hill is tough and shouldn't happen. The rental property listing should read that a 4 wheel drive is required.

The cabin and views are lovely if you can get up there. We enjoyed the romantic fires we built together at night and morning coffee on the porch overlooking the scenic mountains. So quiet and peaceful up there. So glad my husband and I are young and mobile. If not, the trips up and down those last 2 steep hills on foot would have ruined our vacation.

Owner's Response: Our neighbor placed too much new gravel in the section of road in front of his cabin and to the top of the mountain where our cabin is. The gravel was graded down and re-spread and we understand that there was only a problem for the few days around the Thanksgiving Holiday. The gravel road is steep near the top of the mountain, but all-wheel drive and/or four wheel drive is not required if slow/steady speed is maintained.

The perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that the owners were incredibly responsive to any question that I had and I appreciate that very much. If it's available the next time we want to get away, we'll be there.

The cabin is adorable. It's warm, cozy & tidy. The beds were comfortable, towels well stocked and hot water plentiful. Directions were easy to follow and the road is in excellent shape. The last 75 yards or so were bit steep but my front wheel drive vehicle managed wet & dry roads. It takes about 25 minutes to get to either Blue Ridge or Ellijay, so the location was exactly where we needed to be. If you have kids or teenagers, please note the wifi was excellent!

The view was amazing every time we looked, regardless of the time of day. We watched the sun come up our first morning from the rocking chairs on the deck, wrapped in a blanket drinking coffee.

Other reviews have mentioned the neighbors dogs, but we only heard it barking a few times. It was never terribly early in the morning or too late at night. Certainly nothing I'd call problematic.

Destin, Florida

Great location, clean, well equipped & fabulous view but the road up...well read on.

  • 3 of 5

Planned a short trip to the moutains with my family from Destin Florida. I will start with all that was good about the cabin/trip.

We arrived to a very clean and inviting cabin. Teena (the housekeeper) had left the porch light on and the soothing music playing. The cabin came equipped with everything you could possibly need besides groceries which we brought. Plenty of towels, soap, dishwasher detergent and cleaning supplies too. I thought that was great. The appearance, location and views were stunning and what we expected and then some. We enjoyed the hot tub as well.

Now for the not so good. We were not told that the road (steep hill) to the cabin had been newly graveled. Evidently the wrong gravel & too much was used. We arrived at dark and our cars got stuck. We couldn't get them up the hill. Thankfully the neighbor helped us unpack our entire car and drove my husband up the hill (2 trips). We had already walked up carrying hands full of bags/groceries. Me and 2 12 year olds. In the dark. Later that night our son & fiance arrived and got stuck also. Another trip down and up the mountain with their gear. Man what a night. Finally got settled in for the night. The next day we had to take one car into town and leave it there since the road is narrow and it couldn't be left there. A few more trips down and up the mountain. Then today at check out the amazing neighbor wasnt around to help us so we carried everything (including a giant Yeti cooler) down the hill to our vehicle, drove son/fiancee back to town to their vehicle, back to the cabin for the rest of our stuff so a few more hikes up/down that damn hill. Teena was so nice. We let her in early to start her clean for the next guests. Hope she enjoys the key lime pie and fresh key limes we left her.

Truly we made the best of it and were fortunate there was no rain or snow to contend with but the weekend did not turn out to be the relaxing getaway we had hoped for due to the road disaster. All I can say is if you have a 4 wheel drive or all wheel drive vehicle you may fair better. I now am.returning to Destin to rest up from all that hiking/carrying. If it weren't for the road and us not being told this would be a 5 star review. Hell if good exercise except my husband is a disabled vet and it was very hard on him.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jonelle, As we discussed, another cabin Owner just downhill from us put two loads of gravel down just before your arrival and it was not yet packed down or spread properly. Our apologies for the unwanted cardio training, especially for your husband, our Veteran.
