About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Cabin (Sleeps 6) With Mountain Views

Laurel Lodge, located just outside Blue Ridge, GA in Mineral Bluff, is the perfect mountain destination whether you seek a romantic getaway or a place to entertain family and friends. Nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains only 2 hours from Atlanta, you’ll enjoy the multi-state mountain views. The private, secluded setting is peaceful isolation that’s easy to get to.

This cabin is fully appointed with all the comforts and lodge decorating. From the moment you enter the great room with soaring ceiling and stone fireplace, you’ll feel right at home. No detail has been left out in this lodge.

The great room is completed with a cooks’ kitchen and dining nook with an amazing picture window that frames the multi-state, year-round mountain view. The front porch and upper deck are perfect for your morning coffee and taking in the warm daytime sun. Rounding out the main level of the cabin are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master suite features an en-suite bathroom with soaring ceiling.

Above the main level is a large loft with hand-hewn railings and laurel branches. The loft includes a sitting/reading area and a hand-made hickory desk.

The lower level includes a third bedroom and full bathroom as well as a large entertainment area where you can play ping-pong, board games and Wii. The large television includes a Blu-Ray player and Apple TV with Netflix and other streaming services. WiFi internet is available throughout the cabin and on the decks. A washer and dryer are also available for your use.

The lower deck boasts a sitting area, propane grill, picnic table and, tucked around the corner, a 6-person private hot tub. You can also enjoy a roaring camp fire in the stone fire pit.

Although you may never wish to leave Laurel Lodge, should you wish to explore the area you’ll find a host of restaurants, shopping and outdoor activities nearby. Laurel Lodge is approximately 15 minutes from three different town...Blue Ridge, GA; Blairsville, GA and Murphy, NC. Here you’ll find restaurants, shopping and local craftsmen.

The area boasts some of the country’s best Class IV whitewater on the nearby Ocoee River. If a lazy trip down the river in an inner tube or canoe is more your speed, the neighboring Toccoa River is for you.

Multiple hiking options are available from short walks in the property surrounding Laurel Lodge to a day hike on the Benton-MacKaye and Appalachian Trails.

Laurel Lodge awaits to transport you to “mountain time.” Book it today!

Please note that all guests must be at least 18 years of age.

About Brian McGuire

We are like most everyone else...busy professionals who enjoy the chance to get away to recharge. We dreamed of owning a mountain cabin for years and actively searched for the perfect place for three of those years. We hope that you will enjoy Laurel Lodge as much as we do.

Brian McGuire purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Brian McGuire chose Northwest High Country

Laurel Lodge is the perfect fit for us. From it's setting and long-range mountain view to the hand crafted features, it 'spoke' to us right away. We love the laurel branch and hand-hewn timber railings, the large picture window in the dining nook, the views from both porches and the way the stars fill the sky at night. Welcome to Laurel Lodge, ya'll!

What makes this cabin unique

The details are what matter to us. The handcrafted laurel branch deck and stair railings, the huge picture window in the dining area, and the wide plank pine flooring set the stage. We had been collecting cabin decorations for a number of years in anticipation of one day owning a place like Laurel Lodge, so it was the perfect match for us.

Rustic Yet Charming Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Christmas holiday and this cabin exceeded our expectations. Every bit of the beautiful decor was so well though out and designed to a T. We especially loved all the holiday touches throughout the cabin which helped bring the Christmas spirit to our stay. The wrap around porch was great with the amazing views and the hot tub was an added bonus. I love the fact that the cabin was so dog friendly, from bowls with fresh water waiting to a big bone basket filled with toys, this was one trip our pups will not forget either. We would not hesitate to stay again (maybe return for some warmer weather next time). Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely home!

Great Thanksgiving Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I along with 4 friends rented this cabin for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. We were very impressed as soon as we stepped onto the property. Cabin is decorated and furnished really nicely! It gave that great cabin cozy feel but with some modern upgrades and touches. Views from the cabin are absolutely STUNNING! You can enjoy them while at the dining table looking out of the picturesque window or on the deck where there is a perfect round table to sit and relax. The kitchen was nice and open - which is exactly what we needed in order to cook a Thanksgiving feast - and the beds were comfortable. I personally really enjoyed the downstairs area which was decked out with great entertainment such as a ping pong table and Apple TV.

Joe, the owner, was very responsive and definitely made me feel welcomed and at ease. He was very accessible (even during a holiday weekend) and was just very nice. Like one previous reviewer mentioned, definitely have clear directions to get to the cabin and any surrounding areas as it's almost impossible for the GPS to pick up exact locations in the mountains and getting lost without cell phone reception isn't fun (I can attest to this)!

The only negatives here are despite following the directions and giving it more than enough time to heat up, the hot tub didn't stay warm at all and with it being so cool, it was hard to get comfortable in there. The picturesque window although pretty, seemed to have a small opening and there were wasps and all kinds of bugs crawling into the house constantly. Other than those things, pretty much a great place to stay and very beautiful. We appreciated our time here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are so glad you had an enjoyable holiday weekend at Laurel Lodge. We are sorry that the hot tub control had gone bad and we could not get it repaired for you over the holiday weekend. We have since had it replaced and it will be all toasty warm for you on your next visit! And, of course, a cabin in the woods is going to have a few bugs :-)

Girl's Weekend

  • 5 of 5

A group of us spent the weekend at Laurel Lodge. The accommodations were wonderful! The kitchen and bathrooms had everything that we could possibly need, the cabin was immaculate, the beds were very comfortable and the view was spectacular! We will definitely be going back in the future. Brian and Joe were very accommodating and easy to contact with a few questions that we had arise over our stay.

Cozy cabin with great views!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are great to work with. The cabin was clean, cozy and a great space for two couples and two dogs. We had amazing views! We spent time outside on both decks. We didn't use the hot tub but there was one there to use and looked to be in good shape. We loved having a downstairs rec room with a tv and ping pong table to play while we watched football. Kitchen was a good size and well stocked. Overall, we had a great relaxing weekend and would definitely come back and highly recommend staying here.
