Cabin On Lake Blue Ridge In The North Georgia Mountains-- 2 Kayaks Included

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Surround yourself with beauty, relaxation and natural fun in Georgia’s Blue Ridge and Morganton area. At our cabin, relax on the dock or explore Lake Blue Ridge with the use of both our 2 person and 1 person kayaks.

This 3 bedroom 1 bathroom cabin is just steps away from Lake Blue Ridge. With 2 queen size beds and bunk bed, it comfortably sleeps 6. The bedroom and dining room furniture have all been custom made to go with the cabin décor.

The dock is just a short walk (70 paces) down a nature trail where you can enjoy the use of our 2 person kayak.

If you are planning on bringing or renting a boat, you will have multiple options for boat ramp access in the area.

Relax in the 6 person hot tub or on the hammock. The back of the cabin has a large screened in porch which looks out into the Chattahoochee National Forest. You can also enjoy the fire pit or use of gas and charcoal grills.

Our cabin is located close to a wide range of activities. Renew your spirit on a day hike to local waterfalls or horseback riding on forested trails in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway or treetop canopy adventure. Rent a pontoon or a jet ski on beautiful Lake Blue Ridge. Pick strawberries or blueberries at Mercier Orchards, a 65 year old family orchard. Catch a trout on the tail waters of the Toccoa River or a clear mountain stream; Blue Ridge is the Trout Fishing Capital of Georgia.

Check out the authentic mountain towns of Blue Ridge and McCaysville. Blue Ridge is a different kind of mountain town, filled with art galleries, antique and specialty shops, restaurants, small town atmosphere and friendly people.

The crystal clear aquamarine waters of Lake Blue Ridge make it one of Georgia's most picturesque mountain lakes. The 3,290-acre lake and surrounding area offer several boat ramps, a full-service marina and public swimming and picnic areas. 80 percent of the shoreline on Lake Blue Ridge is in the Chattahoochee National Forest, managed by the USDA Forest Service.

There’s a scenic overlook above the dam and a shaded picnic area near the powerhouse. The canoe and kayak launch site below the dam gives non-motorized boaters access to the Toccoa River.

The lake is home to bass, bream, catfish, perch and crappie, which make the area popular with anglers. It is the only lake south of the Great Lakes where Walleye are caught, and is also known for small-mouth bass fishing. Pontoons and jet skis are available for rent at the Lake Blue Ridge Marina, on old U.S. 76. The marina has a boat ramp, fishing, boating supplies and boat storage.

Although On Lake Time is a fantastic place in the spring and summer months, the fall offers beautiful fall colors and our cabin is surrounded by national forest for plenty of fall scenery. In the winter the leaves give way and reveal a completely different perspective with snow covered mountains at times.

Important things we like to make clear to our guests:

Getting to our cabin: the last 2.4 miles is a gravel road that winds through national forest. It is scenic and adds to the feeling of being secluded. It is maintained and does not require four wheel drive however cars with little ground clearance will need to take it a bit slower. Sometimes after hard rains there are some ruts in the road but nothing treacherous.

Boat Ramp Access: the closest access is to walk out your front door and take a left. Turn right on the first gravel road (Timmy Circle) and head towards the lake. NOTE (access is not a concrete ramp but a gentle slope covered with stones and rock.) The boat access located at the cabin is better suited for smaller boats like john boats etc. There are a number of other options. Boat ramps are available at Morganton Point Recreation Area in Morganton. Other boat ramps are located at Lakewood Landing on Old Highway 76, Morganton, and Lake Blue Ridge Recreation Area, Aska Road. We recommend using Lakewood Landing Boat Launch located on the north side of the Lake or Morganton Point Recreation Area on the east side. Morganton Point is the least distance from our cabin and dock. Most of our guests who bring a boat put in at one of these points and then take it to our dock.

Access to our dock: Our dock is located about 70 paces on a trail from the cabin. The last section before reaching the dock is down a gentle slope and there are a few steps going down. People who already have difficulty getting around may not be able to make it down to the dock as it is a trail and is not handicap accessible.

Shannon purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Shannon chose Northwest High Country

We fell in love with this cabin's location and charm. Just steps to Lake Blue Ridge and the Chattahoochee National Forest out our back door. We couldn't resist.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is only 1.5 hours from our home. We are able to vacation at the cabin on a regular basis which allows us to assure it is being maintained to our very high standards.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful mid-week. We liked hanging on the dock as well as exploring the nature trails in the local area. Bonfires and smores...who could ask for more!

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend here. Our kids loved all the woods around the cabin to explore and also fishing off the dock. We went over to the Morganton Recreation area and had a nice picnic by the lake! We also loved the firepit and hot tub! The cabin was very clean and well kept. We really enjoyed our time here together! When we were leaving our kids were already asking when we could come back :)

It was just what we needed. Great weather and a beautiful lake to go along with the cabin. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back in cooler weather.

Beautiful tranquil setting! Perfect for an escape!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay at On Lake time Cabin!! Being from Louisiana and flat land I was concerned about the road conditions leading to the cabin. I had not expected the roads to be quite as windy! But they are relatively easy to traverse, the packed gravel part of the trip takes about 10-15 minutes going 15 mph -it's slow but the scenery makes up for it! The only part that had some ruts in it was the very very short part on Rusty Road, but slow and steady, they were easy to navigate. The cabin was actually larger than I thought, the living room/den area is generous with a nice sized couch that easily accommodates 3 adults. Add a few cushions/pillows on the floor and kids will be fine! The main draw for our family was the close access to the lake with kayaks included - we had a wonderful time paddling on the lake. Access to the dock is a steep hill with roots and rocks - easily maneuvered for able bodies, my son who is intellectually challenged was able to make it down while holding on to my arm. There is a much easier access to the lake off of Timmy Circle, and truly is just a short walk away. The cabin comes well supplied with utensils and cooking supplies, plenty of dishes, only 3 bowls - so if you were having soup and chili for a group of 6 you would either need to use the mugs or bring extra bowls. I did bring the suggested items, but again, the cabin is very well stocked and didn't really have to use my supplies! What an extra bonus to have a washer and drier!! We didn't have to bring home dirty clothes! Plenty of hot water too! The A/C did a wonderful job cooling off the front of the cabin, although in the afternoon the back 2 bedrooms would get a little warm but with the aid of box and ceiling fans, cooler air was circulated well - keep in mind, we were there in August - the daytime outdoor temps were HOT! Mornings are glorious -cool, temps in the 60's, surrounded by the forest - listening to the birds -Heaven! Our time spent at On Lake Time Cabin will be cherished always!

Simply awesome, very surprising scenic, and lovely decorated cabin near Lake

  • 5 of 5

At first we thought where are we? Rocky roads for at least 1,5 miles...we had rain and thunderstorms, but than we arrived at 'On Lake Time' a perfect setting for having a time off after visiting NY, Philadelphia, Washington DC And Richmond. Thank you Shannon, this family from The Netherlands loved your cabin.

Great vacation location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this cabin. It was clean and well supplied. The cabin is right on the lake so we took kids swimming and kayaking every day. We Visited Helen, GA and some other tourist attractions and still had a lot of time to spend enjoying the piece and quiet at the cabin. Definitely coming back in a year or so.
