About the property

Are you ready to relax and re-energize?

We have a no pet policy. Trout Run Cabin is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath real log cabin located on the banks of Fightingtown Creek, a protected trout steam. The cabin sleeps 6 comfortably. No pets, no smoking, no hot tub.

We are a family destination not a party location. It is very quiet here and we like it that way. If you like whimsy, you will love it here. The pictures tell the story.

At Trout Run Cabin you can take long walks back into the forest for miles or sit on the porch and read a book. How about sitting by the fire pit out back at night making s'mores while listening to the crystal clear water rushing by. The sounds of the forest are all around you. This is a very peaceful place. Lots of flat areas for the children to run and play. Bring their bikes and they can ride all day long.

No license needed to fish in the pond out front.

Inside you will find 2 premium king size beds: One in the master suite and the other in the loft suite. Also, there is a set of bunk beds in the bunk room. All beds have 1500 Egyptian cotton thread count sheets.

Come Relax and Re-energize.

About Murray

Growing up in Florida, I have always taken summer vacations to the mountains because it is so different. I love the outdoors so it is a natural thing to love the cabin. For me and my wife, it is a dream come true. We found the perfect place in the perfect location. We have young children and wanted a place that we could let them run and play and not have to worry. We found it. This is one of those items on the bucket list that has been fulfilled. We hope that our guests enjoy the cabin as much as we do.

Murray purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Murray chose Northwest High Country

My wife and I had always wanted a cabin in the mountains, on a stream, with a lot of flat area. In June of 2012, we found everything we had been looking for. One of the first things I noticed when I first visited the cabin was how quiet is it and all you can hear is the sound of the creek rushing by. It is a special place and we are just happy that we are able to share it with others.

What makes this cabin unique

Trout Run Cabin is such a relaxing place. It is so quiet here. You can just sit back, relax and enjoy the sounds of the forest. One of the best things is that you feel so removed from everything yet you are only 20 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. It is just an awesome place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just spent a week at Trout Run Cabin and I already wish I could go back again. That was the most relaxing vacation I have ever had!

The cabin itself is wonderful, having everything you could need plus some. It is comfortable and beautifully decorated. My favorite part was sitting at the edge of the creek, just watching and listening. My husband fished from the pond and caught a nice little bream. We took walks along the road that runs by the creek, we played horseshoes by the pond and we relaxed by the fire pit at night. On our last morning there we woke to see two deer grazing on the other side of the pond.

We went to Mercier Orchard and into Blue Ridge for shopping, antiquing, The Art Center and a few lunches. Great area! (Our favorite lunch was at Joe’s BBQ!)

Murray, the owner of Trout Run was fabulous with communicating and giving suggestions for eating and activities. It was much appreciated!

Thank you, Murray, for sharing your little piece of heaven here on earth with us!

We will be back!

Tranquility at it's finest

  • 5 of 5

The decor of the cabin was well thought out- earth colors in symphony with nature, beckoning one to relax. The sound of the creek was also very calming. I went to rest and renew body, spirit and soul and I achieved that. I'll remember this vacation for a long time.

One of the quietest places on earth

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I absolutely enjoyed our time at Trout Run. It was very quiet and the sound of the stream out back further added to the solitude. The pond near the cabin was very low due to the drought but that wasn't really a problem.

The bed in the "master" was one of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept on in a cabin. We've had some doozies in the past but no problems here. The sofa and chair were also very comfortable and led to me sleeping more than watching television.

The kitchen was well-supplied and this cabin perhaps might be the most generously stocked cabins we've stayed at. Everything from a crockpot to a zester; it was there or in the pantry. And then the pantry, which had some food items, had a sign that said, "Use whatever you need, just replace it." This is unheard of in the cabin rental world. I'm thankful for the owner's generosity and willingness to trust the renters.

Tv was great. Netflixed worked ok. Internet was decent given where the cabin is located.

We went horseback riding at the stables nearby and that was so much fun for us.

We enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful quiet location. Kids loved playing in the creek. FYI. No cell service in the cabin, but that was a good thing!

Owner's Response: Justin, Thanks for staying with us. So glad you guys had such a good time. We restocked the pond last year so hopefully the kids kept busy fishing in the pond as well as playing in the creek. We get pictures from our guests on a regular basis showing off their catch. Hope to hear from you again in the future. Would love to have you and your family come back to the cabin. Take care, Murray

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation - we visited Mercier Orchard and Lily Pad Village in Blue Ridge one day, but other than that, we never left the cabin! Our 5 young children loved playing in and tubing down the creek over and over again, fishing in the pond, and the great hike up the waterfall. The cabin itself was beautiful, clean, well stocked, and the perfect family getaway. We hope to go back next year!

Owner's Response: Whitney, Thanks so much for staying at the cabin.. You are spot on with your review! Like you said, there is really no need to leave the cabin. We love it when families with small children go and enjoy the cabin. There are so many things to do such as fishing in pond, swimming/tubing in the creek, exploring the trails back in to the forest, playing horseshoe in the field or running around the wide open areas around the cabin. An awesome place for children to run and play. The ability to easily get in and out of the creek is a big plus. The location is just perfect for families and couples who want to go and enjoy nature. It is hard to describe just how peaceful and relaxing it truly is. Thankfully we have been blessed with a prime location for our dream of a waterfront cabin in the woods which we share with others. As I'm sure you experienced, with all the various activities to do during the day, once the sun goes down, you can truly relax. Having a fire in the firepit right next to the creek at night while being able to look up at stars is a special treat. Its amazing how the sounds of the forest come alive at night. It doesn't get much better than making S'mores and roasting hotdogs over the open fire right next to a fast flowing creek. Hopefully you were able to open all the windows on the porch at night and relax while reading a book. The rushing water sound would lull anyone to sleep. We also have many board games for children to play. I think most of your little ones were a bit small for board games but there is always next year. We have a little slice of heaven not just a cabin in the woods. Many guests tell us that there is something magical about the place. Maybe because we have tried to make it a little whimsical or maybe it is because of the location the cabin is in. It is the perfect setting. Being out if the middle of the woods and only 20 short minutes to downtown Blue Ridge is a huge plus. The greatest testament is the fact that we have some many of our past guests come back to visit again and again. Thanks again Whitney for bringing your family to enjoy being in the National Forest. What great memories you are making for your family. Blessings, Murray

Beautiful setting

  • 2 of 5

We went here for our 50th. anniversary, hoping to find fish. There were none. The stairs to the loft were hard to navigate. The stove and oven were dirty. This really is not a good place for bike riding. However, if you're looking for a place in a beautiful setting to just relax and listen to the creek, this is it. The neighbors are very nice and Murray is congenial.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear you did not have good luck fishing, such is the nature of the sport. The stairs are indeed a bit quirky; we think of them as part of the cabin’s charm. Yes, we agree with you that the cabin is in a beautiful setting. It is after all surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest. Not sure which routes you took for bike riding. If they were along the road maintained by the U.S. Forestry Service through the national forest, then, yes, those gravel roads are indeed better for mountain biking rather than the casual biker. Fortunately, the road directly adjacent to the cabin and across the creek are flat and well-compressed gravel. Our children and guests visiting with their children or grandchildren have attested these are more readily navigable with a typical touring bike. We are sorry the cleanliness of the oven and stove did not meet your expectations. That particular appliance is original to the cabin and, after 20+ years of use, was beginning to show signs of wear. We took your comments to heart and bought and installed a new stove and oven combination upon receipt of your review. Thank you for staying with us and your candor.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here over the labor day weekend, we had was a wonderful time. Murray (the owner) was super helpful and just all around great to work with.

The cabin is stunning, the beds are super comfy, fire pit at night was great, coffee by the creek in the morning was peaceful and relaxing. Our time here was great. Would love to go back.

Horseback riding and zip lining are within a few miles. This a great location for mountain bikers and outdoor lovers. Plenty of room to roam.
