About the Property
3 bedroom, 2 bath Log Cabin with private lake in the mountains near Blue Ridge
Risen Star is named after the starry nights where the glimmer of a clear night shimmers across our private lake. Our cabin will impress you with its custom decor, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, modern baths, and granite counters, all wrapped in the fun of the private lake. Since our cabin is also OUR vacation spot there is much for you to enjoy inside and out - and there is plenty of room for family and friends.
Sit on the screened porch and take in the lush trees, peaceful mountain surroundings, the view of the lake, and the breezes across the water. Enjoy your morning coffee on your bedroom's breakfast deck or rock yourself to comfort in a hand-made, Amish rocker on the screened porch. Have the kids set up their camping hammocks lakeside or lounge on the large lakeside dock. Maybe your rather just bubble away your stress in our hot tub on the front deck.
There are plenty of things to do inside, as well. Among the amenities are: a fully stocked kitchen, a relaxing great room with fireplace, terrace level play room and den where there is a tv, X-box, and a foosball table.
Risen Star sleeps up to 8 comfortably. A master bedroom with King is located on the main floor. A second Master bedroom with King can be found on the second floor with an on-suite bathroom. A lofted bedroom is across the catwalk on the second floor with two full beds. Each bathroom has a jetted tub and shower, too.
The town of Blue Ridge is only minutes away. The quaint charm of downtown is splashed with wonderful eateries and charming shoppes. You're minutes from the many activities that Blue Ridge has to offer, including water sports on Lake Blue Ridge and the nearby rivers. You can enjoy fresh produce and picking at the many local farms during all of the harvest seasons from strawberries in May to apples in the Fall.
With our own private lake, Risen Star is a great family vacation spot in all seasons. We sit next to 3 Bears Lodge (our college best friends), which allows you to inquire into renting both for a large, special occasion. We've had the privilege of hosting several family reunions, family holidays and the occasional lake-front wedding. The combination of properties is great for holding a wedding along the serenity of the lake, with plenty of space for a larger family to share the entire weekend together. Feel free to ask us about renting both cabins, but plan ahead as both of our cabins tend to fill up quickly, especially for holiday weeks/weekends.
Risen Star is more than a mountain or lake cabin. It's an experience for the mind, body and soul. Repeat visitors call it their 'home away from home'. It's a place where work, stress and worries seem to go away and a sense of calm and peace abound.
We hope you enjoy your stay.

We sit next to 3 Bears Lodge (close friends). This allows rental of both cabins for larger events (reunions, weddings). Feel free to inquire about renting both properties at the same time. Both sit on our private lake and are excellent for large events along the holidays. We've had several 'water front' weddings that have enjoyed the serenity of our mountain, lake location.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We're Susan and Don. Georgia natives, Susan is a designer and seamstress. You see her touch everywhere in the cabin from furnishings to drapes and bedding to paintings and the unique dinning room table and chairs. Don learned construction from his dad and has worked with Susan to put their shared vision into reality. We have family in Blue Ridge and have grown up around lakes and beaches. I guess that's what we love about our cabin, our own little piece of a shoreline.
Why the Owner Chose My Mountain (Morganton, GA, USA):
Out of the blue, our college best friends called to say they had purchased a cabin on a small lake and that the cabin next door was for sale. When we visited Risen Star we knew we wanted it. The charm, location and lake really sold us, plus, the fact that our great friends would be next door. We've put a lot of work and love into cleaning it up, decorating it and making it a comfortable getaway. We love the fact that it's not only a Georgia mountain retreat, but the lake adds so much more fun for our entire family, from swimming to fishing to paddling canoes. If you want, you also have the opportunity to rent two cabins on the same lake. Our next door neighbors are our college best friends and, if available, we can rent both for large occasions, such as family reunions, holidays or weddings by the lake.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Risen Star gives you the best of both worlds. A cabin, nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, but also situated on a serene, private lake. Maybe you can't run your big ski boat, but you can take in the dancing breezes, see the stars glitter on the lake's reflection at night, and hear the tree frogs come out and sing to you at sunset. The layout of the cabin is charming and comfortable. We relax out on the screened porch or listen to music in the den while our kids play downstairs in the game room...and we love Blue Ridge. We're still finding new things out about the area. Taking in a drive-in movie, walking the shops, enjoying a light lunch or driving around and seeing the beautiful, natural canvas that's been painted for everyone to see. You'll see Susan's touch on everything from the custom drapes to the fluffy pillows, shams, duvets and matelasse coverlets in the bedrooms. I love the beds she has found, the comfy sofas and cool table in the kitchen. The charm and sophistication of the cabin is inviting. Hide in a corner and read a book. Gather on the porch and play cards. Jump off the dock into the cool water. Take a slow, quiet, glide on the lake in the canoe. You'll want to come back, we're sure. Our kids love hanging their outdoor hammocks on the lake-side trees. We recently purchased 4 Grand Trunk hammocks that we make available to our guest for rent. Let us know if you're interested (See their picture).
