About Mary Spencer
Being a huge outdoor enthusiast, I have been visiting the North Georgia Mountains for years. The hiking is incredible, with marked and unmarked trails everywhere. The lakes are beautiful and so serene, plus the fishing is great. The towns of Ellijay and Blue Ridge are adorable and both have tons of great shops and restaurants. Makes it easy to enjoy all that nature has to offer and then be able to sit down at a nice "Mom and Pop" restaurant for some local trout and veggies. I bought my first little log cabin in 2000, which I thoroughly enjoyed with family and friends, so much so that I decided to buy my second one a few years later. Both of my girls grew up playing in the dirt, riding 4 -wheeler, picking blackberries and fishing in the creek. I now bring my 4 year old grand-daughter to the "cabin" so she can also have an opportunity to enjoy this amazing place and make some great memories. I currently own 4 cabins ( all are listed on Homeaway/VRBO) and opened a company in 2010 called Morning Breeze Cabin Rentals, which manages a total of 60 log cabins throughout the Blue Ridge and Ellijay area. I would love for each and every one of you to come on up and experience all that the mountains of Blue Ridge have to offer. A lot has changed since the year 2000, we now have wineries, ziplines, fishing and hiking guides plus fine dining to add to the list of things to do and enjoy while visiting the beautiful mountains of North Georgia.
Why Mary Spencer chose Blue Ridge
This is a very special property to me as it was bought in remembrance of my dad. He also enjoyed the outdoors and was the one who first introduced me to fishing. When he passed in 2010, he left me half of a small insurance policy, which I decided to use as a down payment on an investment property that I could also enjoy. He loved the stock market and spent hours in front of his computer buying and selling stocks, so I chose the name "Morningstar" since that was a popular brokerage firm. He would have loved the cabin with it's little dock for fishing, hiking right out the door, huge hot tub and the lovely screened porch for enjoying a nice glass of wine at the end of the day. I hope anyone who decides to rent my special little cabin enjoys it as much as I do :)
What makes this Cabin unique
This cabin is truly idea for a couple who just wants to get away from it all yet still have access to our quaint little mountain towns of Ellijay and Blue Ridge. The extra large hot tub lets you melt all your troubles away or maybe sit in one of the rockers and enjoy the view of the lake from the screened porch. Being pet friendly you can bring along your extended family and take nice leisurely walks on the Benton MacKaye trail which is adjacent to the cabin. With paved roads all the way and easy access into the cabin anyone can enjoy staying at the Morningstar on the Lake.

Perfect cabin for a couple or small family
Great location and easy to find. Perfect size for the two of us for our stay. Highly recommend!!
Stephanie, thank you so much for the wonderful review about your stay at the Morningstar on the Lake. It sounds like you had a great time and I definitely look forward to seeing you again in the future. - Mary
This cabin was like a little love nest snuggled into the woods. My husband and I really enjoyed our week we spent here. We spent most of our time just enjoying the view from the many locations they have set up to sit outside. Our favorite spot was the deck on the lake. The cabin was nicely decorated and was close to Blue Ridge to take some easy day trips. This cabin would be a little crowded for more than a couple, but it is absolutely perfect for a two person getaway.
Kathy, thank you for the wonderful review of the Morningstar on the Lake. I think you summed it up nicely, it's a wonderful little gem tucked in nicely with an amazing setting...and just minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. Definitely come back and see me again soon. ~ Mary
Everything is as described! The property is pristine...very clean and beautiful! It was a wonderful place to spend time with my family!
Debra, thank you for much for the great review on the Morningstar on the Lake. So glad the entire family enjoyed their stay. ~ Mary
This is an amazing getaway home in the mountains of Georgia.
This house was perfect for a three day weekend. We arrived in Friday and left of Sunday. We did not even need to venture out to the surrounding areas. This house has two bedrooms and one full bathroom, which is plenty of room for a couple or small family. The inside of the house was very nice and had everything we needed for cooking. The screened in porch was a bonus for having morning coffee or evening wine. We enjoyed the privacy of the hot tub, which is located underneath the porch. We utilized the small dock on the pond to get some afternoon sunshine. We did not use the fire pit because it had previously rained. We used the canoe to venture out into the pond. It was so peaceful and quiet. I can not give this house a five star rating due to the squeaking beds. I’m not sure if it was the box springs or the bed frames, but whatever it was, it was loud and annoying while trying to sleep!! That is the only complaint that we have. We plan on booking for the Fall if it’s available!! We highly recommend this property!! Joe & Sista Liz
Elizabeth, thank you for the nice review and so glad you enjoy the "Morningstar on the Lake". I will have my handyman look into the bed and see if it's something that can be fixed. I know getting a good nights sleep is important, especially on your vacation when you may want to sleep in late and enjoy that extra time. ~ Mary
Lovely, cozy cabin!
We loved everything about our cabin. Furniture and beds were comfortable, we enjoyed the hot tub and great family time at the kitchen table playing cards while looking out at an awesome view. The cabin was clean and well-kept. We had everything we needed in the kitchen. We had one small maintenance issue during our stay, and Mary was prompt and thorough in her response. We loved the view. The Chapel and the loft were fun surprises! We can’t wait to come back!
Kirsten, thank you so much for the great review. I really appreciate you letting me know about your stay at the Morningstar on the Lake. Definitely come back and see me again :)
Our family had a great stay. Great setup, and fishing from the dock was great.
Thank for the great review, so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Morningstar on the Lake. Please feel free to come back and stay with me again ~ Mary
