About Melanie and Jim Buckshaw
We built Black Ankle Lodge as a getaway home. We have a love and respect for the outdoors. This cabin is special to our family and we visit it often. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Melanie and Jim Buckshaw purchased this Cabin in 2002
Why Melanie and Jim Buckshaw chose Cherry Log
We choose to build Black Ankle Lodge on this site because of the endless Chattahoochee National Forest behind it. It offers total privacy and wildlife viewing. Black Ankle is conveniently located, 13 miles, to the town of Blue Ridge. Just minutes to the Toccoa River & Lake Blue Ridge. The property is nestled on a mountain ridge with the Chattahoochee National Forest surrounding the cabin and has two springs running through it. Conveniently located near the Appalachian Trail system/Benton MacKaye suspension bridge and Chattahoochee National Forest. It offers spacious outdoor activity without leaving the grounds. Various hiking trails are right off the property. If you like to jog or mountain bike, it's the perfect workout, or enjoy peaceful walks or hikes in beautiful surrondings.

Excellent relaxing rental
Very nice cabin!! Fully stocked kitchen. Sitting in the hot tub on the deck was great!. We stayed during the quarantine process and didn't even feel the need to leave as the cabin had all the amenities. Would definitely stay again. Owners are very responsive and easy to deal with.
Thank you Tim. We are happy you were comfortable and enjoyed the surroundings. It is a beautiful place to relax!
Perfect weekend getaway
We had an incredible time staying at this beautiful secluded cabin. This stay was exactly what we needed to escape from the city and get to a simpler way of life. I could go on for days about this cabin, the great surrounding area, & relaxing vibe. If you’re looking for a place in blue ridge this is it. Will be staying again soon!
