This 3 bedroom/3 full bath real log cabin home is the perfect location for a family vacation or private luxury retreat with some of the most spectacular year round mountain views Blue Ridge has to offer. Our cabin over looks 1000+ acres of National Forest amongst 3 states (Ga, Tenn & NC.). The incredible views can be seen from the floor to ceiling windows in the family room as well as from the large 3 sided wrap around deck with rocking chairs. There is also a covered porch with a table, chairs and gas grill. So much privacy, yet only 9 miles to historic downtown Blue Ridge.

The main level includes a rustic bedroom with queen bed, flat screen TV and a double vanity bathroom with jacuzzi tub. The top level has a king bed and a bonus room which offers a great peaceful area to read a book and take in the views. The main level offers a queen bed and the basement has a bunk full/twin bed. Adjoining the family room is a spacious kitchen with custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a large island with breakfast bar. A heavy rustic wood table with bench seating for up to 8 people to enjoy meals or an ideal location for cards and board games is located just off the kitchen. The finished basement has a bedroom with full bath, game-room with air hockey and a custom bar with built in refrigerator. Furthermore, there is a large flat screen TV, video games and plenty of seating.

A large 6 person hot tub with extra jets, neck massage and waterfall is located on a deck just outside the double doors of the walkout basement. Within a few steps of the hot tub, you will find a brand new fire-pit with 4 rustic benches. Enjoy a beverage and smores at this wonderful gathering spot.

At the end of the day relax in the family room in front of the 2 story wood burning stone fireplace and large flat screen TV. Rooney's Ridge is equipped with WI-FI and satellite TV with new flat screens in all rooms (including DVD players and video games in the basement and bonus room).

Miles of hiking/biking trails with abundant wildlife is within steps from the cabin. There are plenty of rivers nearby and Lake Blue Ridge is only minutes away. This excellently maintained cabin offers new rustic furniture and has just been placed on the rental market. If you are looking for superb views, privacy and an upscale cabin- Rooney's Ridge will fit your vacation needs.

About Kevin Lutian

It's easy to see why Blue Ridge has become such a popular North Georgia destination vacation attraction since we first visited. We have enjoyed vacationing there because of all the activities like rafting, boating, hiking and shopping. The beauty of the mountain landscapes, trails and rivers make for the ultimate getaway. You truly need to stay in Blue Ridge to appreciate the charm of this area.

Kevin Lutian purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Kevin Lutian chose Northwest High Country

We purchased this home as a family vacation spot after several years of visiting Blue Ridge, Georgia. The proximity to Atlanta, Chattanooga and Asheville gives us easy access to a variety of things to do and places to see.

What makes this cabin unique

Despite its deep-in-the-mountains private location, Rooney's Ridge is just 15 minutes to Historic Downtown Blue Ridge, the Scenic Railway, Community Theater, the Swan Drive-In (one of last remaining in Georgia), and just over 15 minutes to Tennessee, North Carolina, the Cherokee National Forest and the Ocoee River, “Home of the 1996 Olympic White Water Competition. You are close to everything but still in the mountains!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rooneys' Ridge is a wonderful cabin. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you need. The kids loved the basement game room with Air Hockey. The views are even better than the pictures show. The hot tub & fire pit are great additions.

Fantastic cabin with outstanding views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this cabin for a week in September and it was spectacular!!! We have been to Blue Ridge, GA before and love the area. This cabin is so close to downtown Blue Ridge and close to plenty of hiking/rafting locations. And, the cabin itself is in a secluded location with outstanding views (just as pictured)! The house was super clean and cozy. And, the owner, Kevin, is great to work with. He was super responsive to all of our requests and gave us advice for places to visit/eat around the area. We cannot wait to go back! We would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to stay in the area!

Beautiful property, well cared for

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay Labor Day weekend. Family with 3 young children, and nanny.

PROs: Beautiful views from the patio, amenities (fire pit, jacuzzi, TV/internet), spacious

Home is well loved / maintained, very spacious for privacy as we gave the nanny the up stairs (bed room/bath/TV room). Downstairs perfect for kids sleeping in bunk beds, and room for watching football. Laundry was accessible, outdoor fire pit, jacuzzi working and clean, (although we didn't use & cannot attest to working status, has several TVs, internet, and gaming). Property was lit enough for our night arrival that we were easily able to get into the home!

CONS: most mountain homes have steep driveways, so this was no surprise, but is also gravel. Be aware of owner instructions to ensure your car makes it up! We arrived in the rain adding to the challenge.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the 5 star review. You wont find a cleaner cabin with incredible views and all the comforts of home in addition to rustic details... We don't have a 4 wheel drive vehicle and have not had any issues with the driveway. As noted you must gain speed on the blacktop prior to our driveway and you wont have a problem.

Owner's Response: Rooney's Ridge has some of the best views in Blue Ridge. You can see 3 states from the main deck (Ga, NC and Tenn) and over 3000 acres of National Forrest. Thanks for the heads up on the bulbs, I will get them replaced.

Fantastic views and cabin

  • 5 of 5

The view of the mountains is breathtaking especially at sunrise. If you want a relaxing serene cabin this is the place. The inside matches the photos, my boys just loved the downstairs 'man cave' as they called it. Plenty of space for a large group without feeling on top of each other. We will definitely rent this cabin again our next time in Blue Ridge.

Owner's Response: The best views in Blue Ridge combined with upscale rustic details and the comforts of home. We are glad everything met your expectations and you are planing a return trip.
