Away from it all!
Easy booking and perfect place to spend evenings after whitewater rafting during the day. (next time we will book rafting with an outfitter closer to Ducktown).
The beauty of this cabin is its remote location so patience is required to navigate to it the first time. We battled torrential rain and dusk so it was a bit of an adventure. Don’t bother w gps, print out the map from Rt 68 to Grassy Creek, then a left onto Mt Harmony rd, then hairpin turn left onto Deal rd. Then follow signs for Blanche Manor. It is worth the effort!
When you need to go out, it’s 10 mins south on 68 to the cute twin towns of Copper Hill TN and McKaysville GA. Lots of food choices and fun shopping.
This rental was everything we needed. Highly recommend it!
Weekend at Blanche Manor
Was wonderful, nice and quiet, hot tub was amazing, the property manager was wonderful and very helpful, my wife and I would definitely stay there a second time.
If the beaten path.
This place is off the beaten path, but offers great seclusion in close proximity to town... 10 minutes or so. Private factor was great. Very quiet. Being where it is you are pretty much restricted to movies to watch for entertainment, but we stayed gone all day and only watched movies winding down after long days. I would reccomend this place to other .
Thank you Jeremy! So glad y'all enjoyed your stay!
Even though we had a small problem, the owner quickly responded and gave us our horseback riding for free to make up for it. We especially LOVED the horseback riding—great trails, great guide and sweet horses.
Thank you Kay! Your family was precious and I really appreciated your patience and understanding! The problem was quickly resolved and hopefully will not happen again!
Hope to see y'all back again!
The “cabin” was clean, but not near as big as what the pictures depict. It was definitely rustic which was perfect, and location was peaceful. Be advised, that if you are coming to ride, their safety meeting takes up a part of your riding time. Online, it stated the ride was about an hour and 25 minutes, we rode for barely an hour. If you are an experienced rider, this is very mediocre. I paid a lot of money to have a private ride so that we weren’t stuck going at a slow, nose to tail ride with somebody in a group who was possibly inexperienced but it ended up being a disappointment and a waste of $50. Our guide was really nice, but it was just not cracked up to what we thought it would be.
Thank you Arrial for your review
Our ride time is 1.25 hr which is only 1hr and 15 minutes. 1.5 hr is 1hr and 30minutes. I do apologise for that confusion however private rides tend to go a little faster given experience and the faster pace however u will be going over this with the guides to make sure everyone gets the entire time. Check in is 15 minutes prior to the actual departure if the ride which still gives us enough time for the 1.25 ride. The only time rides are cut shorter is if rider's arrive late to the barn. I sincerely apologise you didn't enjoy it and would love a chance to make it up to you!
I'm always available to talk if you would like to call the barn office.
You will be staying on our private horse ranch. The setting is absolutely beautiful and serene. We are in the heart of the Cohutta Wilderness. Outdoor acitivites are endless in our beautiful Blue Ridge Mountians. We are also only 25 minutes from Blue Ridge, GA, with all of their fantastic dining, live theater, and night life. Our location cannot be beat!

Why Kimberly Ownesby chose Blanche Manor Ranch
When we were ready to retired from corporate life, we looked looked across the entire US to find the place we wanted to spend the rest of our lives and found in her in south eastern Tennessee. We feel that our home showcases the natural beauty of Blue Ridge Mountains, while being close to conveniences and culture of Blue Ridge. We are blessed with a location that has outstanding trails for riding, close proximity to all the outdoor activities our clients are looking for, and the peace and serenity that only open pastures, horses, and farm life can offer.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our ranch offers fantastic views, private wooded setting, creeks on every boarder, and beautiful pastures filled with horses. Our setting is truly unique. We offer the seclusion of a private ranch, but have activities right onsite. We are also so close to all of the adventure activities, such as white water rafting, tubing, kayaking, endless hiking trails, and lakes with boat rentals. You are close enough to Blue Ridge for fine dining and culture, but secluded in the peaceful beauty on our private ranch.
