About the Property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

**Spring Special: $20 discount per night for April & May**

ASKA ESCAPE Lodge is located in the Aska Adventure area of Blue Ridge, GA. Within walking distance to the Toccoa River and National Forest for fishing, canoeing/kayaking and hiking. Nearby is the Appalachian or Benton McKaye Trails with lots of daytrips, waterfalls to discover and outdoor activities to enjoy! Not an outdoor person? Relax in the luxuries of the cabin or go to downtown Blue Ridge which features many shops, restaurants and the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway to McCaysville.

You may find other cabins for less money but with older furnishings and not well-equipt. We take pride in a very clean, organized and prepared cabin. Walking into this real log cabin, you will find upscale furnishings, locally handcrafted furniture and three levels for your family vacation enjoyment or romantic weekend getaway! Or take a working vacation with our WiFi-DSL.

Outside is a great view on the four-sided wrap around covered porch with picnic table, hanging swing and rocking chairs. Watch the deer and other wildlife gather right outside by the deer feeder. Listen to the quiet of this mountain location and the local creek across the road in this private setting with seasonal mountain views. Relax in serenity if you aren’t up for activity.

The main level has cathedral ceilings with a fully stocked kitchen, 6 seat dining room and comfy open setting with a real-rock wood-burning fireplace and TV/DirectTV. We have plenty of wood just bring your starter logs. Here you’ll find French doors to the porch from either the living room or Master Bedroom with comfy pillow-top King size bed and large bathroom with tub.

On the deck, have a BBQ on the grill and sit at the picnic table for an outdoor meal. Rest in the porch swing or hammock. Roast marshmallows in the newly updated rock 14' fire pit while telling stories of the day! (BRING DURAFLAME LOGS)

Upstairs in the loft is the SouthWestern style Queen Bedroom (pillow-top mattress)and private bathroom with shower. The overlook Loft area has a desk and chair for working, reading or writing.

The lowest level has a private Queen size bedroom and full bath. The Game room has an electric fireplace, Large 52” Flat Screen TV with DVD & DirectTV, Wii System (Bring your Games!) and DVD Library. Try your luck on one of the many board games or your talent on the Karaoke machine (with over 100 songs)! Go outside and throw some horseshoes on the outside pits, sit on the lower covered porch or jump in the 4 person hot tub to relax in the woods.

Look through our extensive 3 ring binder filled with maps of hiking, biking or driving trails, horseback riding, fishing guides, antique shops and restaurant or boating ideas to plan your excursions!

Take a short drive to Shallowford bridge and rent a tube to float down the river. Go north for exciting river rafting on the Ocoee. Around the corner is the local VanZandts's Cafe & Grocery where you can stop in for Biscuits & Gravy or a burger with the Locals. Visit the local Apple Orchards, downtown historic Blue Ridge’s Main Street or seasonal festivals.

Traveling around the US, we’ve rented many cabins. When we decided to get our own in Blue Ridge, we designed it to include all the amenities we liked with upscale cabin furniture and décor.
Please call or email us for more info, quote, more photos or inquiry of dates available. We guarantee you’ll create lifetime memories with your family or friends at “Aska Escape”!

Easy drive to the cabin! Hilly and paved country roads take you through the Aska Adventure Area until just the last mile, which is gravel groomed road. Not too steep. We just got our driveway paved! Horses and picturesque views the whole way.

About: Todd and Helene enjoy being active and time with family and friends at the cabin! A growing family that includes a Son and Daughter in Law, Two Grand-daughters, and Two Daughters in college. We look forward to many more years of memories at the Cabin! Come stay at ASKA ESCAPE and create your own memories! Our photo was taken in our cabin backyard.

Why Blue Ridge, GA, USA:
The Blue Ridge is so diverse in history, activity and serenity. A short day drive from numerous states, it provides a meaningful family vacation, reunion or getaway. If you are here for a week, drive into Atlanta to the city to see the Braves, Aquarium, Coca-cola or the city. Stone Mountain Georgia is a great day trip or drive north into North Carolina or Tennessee to the Great Smoky Mountains, Asheville or Gatlinburg. Lake BlueRidge is closeby for boating, fly-fishing down the hill or discover the many stores and local restaurants. SO much to see and do in this area!
