Risen Star is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia. Our cabin is situated on a private 5 acre lake in the mountains near Blue Ridge. A quiet getaway where you can do everything... or nothing at all.
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.
