Want to visit the Old West but do not have time to travel over 1,500 miles? Then rent the Bunkhouse at Damascus Ranch in the North Georgia Mountains. A new 2 story 2 BR 2 full bath log cabin nestled in the woods, it provides the most peaceful setting you have ever experienced.
To get there, drive to Blue Ridge. We will direct you to Damascus Trail with its awesome ten-mile view of the Cohutta Mountains. Go past the 14-stall stable, the ranch mansion and through the woods.
There you will find the most adorable western-style home, yours for the next few days. It sleeps 6, or 7 if you use the comfy couch. Perfect for families, couples,
Cross the bridge, take off them muddy boots and walk into the Old West. The Bunkhouse has modern conveniences like a kitchen with gadgets galore & service for 8, a gas fireplace, flat-screen HDMI. But your attention will be quickly grabbed by the spectacular view of Damascus Peak, right there in the family room windows.
The boss owner has really decked out this cowhide on the floor, a horse singletree on the wall, and an antique water bucket and rope hanging from the ceiling. Imagine if you had to throw that bucket down a well to fetch your water. Nowadays just grab a fruit jar from the kitchen and turn on a faucet. That’s plumbing! Put in when the outhouse burned down!
Check out the Canadian goose when you go upstairs to the bedrooms. Peak in the full bath with tub and gently touch the bison hide hanging in the hallway.
Now hurry to the bedrooms. You will not find another like the one at the end of the hall east of the Mississippi. Everyone loves these bunk beds! The bottom beds are XL for taller ranch hands. Send the tenderfoots to the other BR with the queen bed and a white fallow deer to watch over them at night.
After you have unpacked, try out the Bunkhouse cypress swings. Feel the fresh mountain air on your face while you enjoy the 10-mile mountain view, the rolling pastures, and if you time it right - horses grazing in the field.
...Or sit a spell on the back porch and enjoy the same great time to soak in the inviting and soothing hot tub that's there.
...Or rock on the front porch while listening to the birds. Keep your eyes open for Woody!
...Or play horseshoes or darts, take a walk, etc.
As the sun begins to set, start a fire in the fire pit with the free wood provided. Sit on a big rock and relive your day and plan your tomorrow. Use the skewers to cook your the grill on the front porch. Food just tastes better outdoors - especially when cooked over an open fire, right? Use the picnic table to build memories.
Turn off your new-fangled electronics while at the Bunkhouse. Try to relax! But if you cannot, we have free high-speed internet Wi-Fi, 2 flat-screen TV’s and DVD/CD players. And we get good cell phone reception.
So come ’on city slickers! Saddle up your whatever will get you here! Go the way to the North Georgia mountains that is. Enjoy a taste of the Old West at the Bunkhouse at Damascus Ranch!
Guest cabin! Priceless view, cozy environment, and beautifully designed. We traveled from Boca Raton and we will gladly return every year. I am a contractor and whoever built the Bunkhouse has true talent! You can tell this rental cabin is well-maintained, and its staff really cares about customer satisfaction. Great job!" The V. Family
