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.

Everything We Hoped For...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Christmas holiday for 6 nights. Having done Christmas for over 30 years for the entire family, we decided to take our nuclear family of 4, plus 2 dogs, on the road.

The cabin is spectacular; amazing views. Perfectly appointed and user friendly. Kevin and his wife were extremely responsive and helpful in our preparations. Not a single negative surprise, only positive ones.

You will not be disappointed if you rent this cabin...I hate to use an over worn saying but, we'll be back to rent this or one of the other cabins owned by the Lutians.

Perfect Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This whole house is amazing! The cabin details are adorable, and it was totally perfect for our winter getaway. Kevin is very kind and easy to reach. From the fire place, to the views from the deck, to the hot tub, we couldn't have asked for a better place to take a break from the rush of life and relax in a private mountain winter getaway! We definitely highly recommend this property!!

Amazing stay! Super friendly and responsive owners.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place with everything you might need for the stay. Very friendly and accommodating owners. Beautiful view! Not just one spot through the trees as some other cabins we have stayed in, but truly a nice panoramic view with plenty of seating. It is hard to find everything in one place - jacuzzi, fire pit, and fire place. Those are the extras we always look for, but it is rare that all are offered. We are definitely planning to come back.

Beautiful property and awesome owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a late review but I want to give a review anyway. My husband and I stayed here back in June 2017. We had such a great time! The property is well kept. The views are amazing! If you are looking for a place away from it all then this place is it! We could hear nothing but the wind and nature! It was so private. We live in a big city so this was the perfect getaway. The owner was awesome and very helpful. He answered all of my texts, emails and calls without being rude (even if I asked the questions more than once). Blue Ridge does not have a liquor store so make sure you stop to get some before Blue Ridge. We visited and liked Grumpy Old Men Brewery and Joe's BBQ. Blue Ridge also has a cute downtown area with local small cute shops. We will book this next time we go to Georgia :)

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here for the weekend. The cabin is beautiful. It was spacious, yet still cozy enough for me and my guests. The owner, Kevin, was extremely nice and helpful as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in renting a cabin for their vacation.

Out Of This World Cabin, With Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager (Kevin) was very helpful with questions, suggestions and gave us some hot spot locations and places to visit. These pictures just don't seem to do it justice, you'll have to stay and see for yourself.

The vacation rental was spotless.

I was very happy with the location.

I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The view and sunrises/sunsets we're Amazing. Cozy cabin with everything we needed. We loved how close to town it was and how we felt a million miles away at the same time. We had an amazing time and highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: The views don't get any better and that's just the start. Our cabin is one of the cleanest rentals you will find with all the comforts of home. I am more than a property manager, I am the owner and you will deal directly with me from start to finish. Who wants to be next to experience our 5 Star mountain cabins. We have 2 other properties closer to the water (#723037 & #1069638) Call or email to reserve your mountain getaway! Kevin

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 Blue Ridge

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.
