About Mary Spencer
We both loved the outdoors and especially fishing. We would take several trips each year specifically to enjoy our day(s) fishing. Typically this was in Florida, but we also liked Savannah, Chattanooga, Bahamas, and really anywhere that we could throw a line in. We only lived 90 minutes from Blue Ridge and Mary owned a company up there called Morning Breeze Cabin Rentals. Needless to say, we were heading in that directions on a very regular basis and finally decided to buy a cabin together on a lake, so we would have the best of both worlds...outdoors at its finest and fishing !
Mary Spencer purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Mary Spencer chose Ellijay
What's not to love about it!!! Mary was familiar with the Lakeview Escape when she owned another company up there and had her eye on it for several years. We spent quite a few weekends looking at dozens of cabins but she just kept saying, I think this one is going to come through. Sure enough, our realtor knew the original owners who was getting ready to sell it and before it hit the market, we got the option to make a bid on it. The Lake setting combined with the incredible mountain view are breath-taking. We roll out of bed in the mornings and sit out on the top deck with our cups of coffee and just take it all in. The location was also a plus, paved all the way and only 15 minutes to both the towns of Ellijay and Blue Ridge. We do like the great outdoors but we also like the luxury of having some great shops and fine dining restaurants at our fingertips. This cabin was definitely the one for us. I hope anyone who has the opportunity to rent our cabin will enjoy it as much as we do. And if you catch a big fish, we want to see a picture :)

Very nice getaway!
The cabin was very comfortable. Nice to have working wi-fi and TV. Enjoyed the lake & Mountain View’s. Also appreciated the paved roads. Would like to come back.
Debbie, thank you so much for letting us know about your stay at the Lakeview Escape. Definitely come back and stay with us agani.
Relaxing quiet visit
Rick and I were so happy to have a relaxing visit and we were able to bring our dog. We met some of the neighbors on our walks. Everyone was so friendly. We visited downtown and loved the antique shops. We also visited Odom, Paradise and Habersham wineries. Sherri at Odom winery was wonderful to visit with.
Rick and I were there for a week and feel we paid top dollar in comparison to other rentals. We mainly cooked all of our meals in. The frying pans and pots were tired but we managed. We were only left the bare minimum supplies, 3 packets of dish soap, 2 rolls of toilet paper (we had to go buy some).
Overall everything was clean and in good condition. I vacuumed before we left but I forgot to run dishwasher because I was rationing the last packet. Thank you for a nice visit. We would recommend our friends to stay here.
Karen, so sorry I missed your review. It sounds like you had a great time at the Lakeview Escape and enjoyed all the amenities. We have replaced the pots/pan for future guests, thanks for pointing it out. I will mention that we send out an email prior to arrival saying that we only leave out a started amount of Toilet paper, paper towels, soaps/shampoos and a few other things for the guests. It's similar to a renting a condo. Again, glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again in the future
Property and lake house were beautiful!
The house has everything you need for your stay and the view of the lake from the back porches is simply amazing. We will definitely be back again, loved this place! Hiking trail is right on the property and is a beautiful walk around the lake. Great fishing right off the dock and perfect location with the fire pit.
Carrie, thank you so much for letting me know about your stay at the Lakeview Escape. It sounds like you truly enjoyed all of the amenities the cabin has to offer and I look forward to seeing you again in the future ~ Mary
My husband and I were celebrating our 20th
wedding anniversary along with his cousin and his wife were celebrating 10 years. We all decided to go away for a long weekend. We had a wonderful stay. The cabin was clean, cabin was easy to find, the the view was astounding. The weather was cold and rainy so We weren't able to enjoy the Canoe or dock. Hopefully next time
Melissa, thank you for the review of the Lakeview Escape. I am so sorry I missed responding to it but I am glad that you had a wonderful time on your anniversary....even with the rain. Definitely come back again so you can utilize the dock, canoe and hiking around the cabin :) ~ Mary
Amazing!! The view of the lake and mountains was incredible and the cabin was absolutely perfect!
We enjoyed everything about the cabin!! The furnishing were in theme with the area and the bed was very comfortable. The view off of every deck was spectacular but we really enjoyed sipping our morning coffee on the upper deck gazing out at the lake. We walked the trails around the cabin and used the canoe every day. At night we played a few games of pool and used the hot tub once after some strenuous hiking that day, perfect remedy for sore muscles. Overall a wonderful stay, we can't wait to come back again
Great weekend getaway!
Great cabin to getaway for a long weekend. The view is spectacular even in the rain! Will be back again.
