About Bud Ketterl
We're a family of four, my wife and I have a son and a daughter in high school. We moved to Knoxville, TN from the Atlanta metro area two years ago with a job opportunity. We have been rescuing German Shepherd Dogs over the last 20 years and currently have three. We spent almost twenty years in the Acworth, GA area before heading to Knoxville. Before that, my wife and I grew up in Connecticut. We met in high school and then again later in life when we started dating. We've just celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary this past June.
Bud Ketterl purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Bud Ketterl chose Blue Ridge
Our family purchased the cabin a few years ago after renting it for several years before that. We fell in love with the cabin and its amazing views, the town of Blue Ridge, its natural beauty, the people and all there is to do there. We hope to retire in Blue Ridge eventually, it is just a whole new way of life there.
What makes this Cabin unique

First time cabin renters
This is the first time that my husband and I have ever rented a cabin for a family vacation. Three of our adult children, their spouses and our grand-baby came with us on this adventure. Above The Clouds met all of our expectations. We started each day on the porch enjoying the beautiful views of the mountains. The cabin had plenty of space for 8 adults, and was incredibly clean. The owner, Bud, was very friendly and responded immediately to text messages. The Blue Ridge area and this beautiful cabin did not disappoint, and I definitely recommend it!
The great mountain experience
This great home met all of our expectations. Amazed by the number of indoor and outdoor sitting areas. Beds are very comfortable. Games, puzzles, pool table, ring on a string, were all a lot of fun. Highly recommended.
Incredible views in an incredibly perfect cabin
First off; it was a breeze renting through VRBO especially that the owner Mr. Bud communicated right away (I extended my stay twice and he was very accommodating and helpful). The drive to the cabin is quiet and easy. Driving up the mtn was a little scary for me as it rained the first 3 days but if you follow his YouTube video you will have ZERO issues. My boys and I even walked it up one day (one mile of beautiful incline). The cabin itself is set on the side of the mountain to give you some insane views from all 3 levels. Plenty of space for everyone and is equipped with everything you need. The cleanliness is like no other, I was completely blown to see that every detail was accounted for. No corner left untouched. Again, Mr. Bud provided me with his personal cell and would respond right away; it was also a pleasure to meet him and his daughter. The town of Blue Ridge is beautiful and quiet. We went white water rafting, zip lining, horse back riding, blue ridge scenic railroad, hiked Amacolola Falls, swinging bridge, drove to Atlanta twice and much much more. All reasonable distances from this amazing cabin. It was sad to leave but we will most definitely return.
This is our second stay at Above The Clouds & our stay was as great as the first, we will never rent another cabin as long as we are able to get a reservation here. The owner Mr Bud is always very helpful & prompt when we have ever had a question. Thanks again for letting us stay in your beautiful cabin with the beautiful views.
Thanks so much for coming back! Glad you enjoyed yourselves. Let me know when you're coming again!
"Above the Clouds" Best Cabin in Blue Ridge GA!
Above the Clouds Cabin rental in Blue Ridge GA was by far one of the nicest VRBO rentals my husband and I have stayed at yet! The views are spectacular, serene and tranquil. Cabin has all the creature. Comforts for 2 or if you are looking for a getaway to spend with family and friends. Very well laid out plenty of space to have alone time or to enjoy with others. We wanted for nothing during our 4 night stay. Owner, Bud, was very easy to deal with and responded quickly when need. We would definitely stay here again!
Yay! It's great to hear you guys enjoyed yourselves!
We had an incredible week here in May. The cabin has everything you need to chill, relax and have fun. The cabin is beautiful, clean, modern and most of all has the stunning view of the national park. We spent a lot of the day just looking at the view, the birds and enjoying the sun. We also spent a lot of the night enjoying the stars and fireflies. The nearby town of blue ridge and the lake at Morganton and the river at horseshoe bend were great. Many waterfalls to see as well. A great week, an amazing cabin!

Although relaxing and reading a good book or watching a great movie is the best thing to do at Above the Clouds, if your desire is for the more active things, here are some suggestions. There are a number of things to do in Blue Ridge. From antiquing to restaurants to riding the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. There are festivals, to 'Arts in the Park', to a community theater. There are orchards where you can pick your own apples. There is even 'The Swan', which is one of three drive-in movie theaters in the state. For the outdoor lovers, the Benton McKaye trail crosses over the cabins mountain. From hiking to fishing - you can rent a boat and fish on Lake Blue Ridge or fish form the shore to trout fishing in the trout capital of Georgia. You can hang at the beach and BBQ or just take in the breathtaking views form the cabin.
Without a doubt, the best website for current events in the area is the Chamber of Commerce website, as it has calendars of things that are going on no matter what time of year you visit.
