About Ron & Alley Sandy

After 5 years of owning and operating one of the most popular cabin rentals in Ellijay we purchased Buck Valley Lodge early in 2015. We have spent most of our free time enjoying the mountains with our 4 children. In July of 2011 we decided to share our cabin home, Bearadise Retreat with others and listed it with a local property management company. We quickly saw the downfalls in using such a service, both for the owners and the guests. We saw so many things we could do to improve our guests experience. We now enjoy handling the entire process ourselves. Our favorite part is talking to and meeting our guests from all over the country and overseas.

Ron & Alley Sandy purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Ron & Alley Sandy chose Northwest High Country

We wanted to offer our guests amenities that you just can't get outside of Coosawattee River Resort. From indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, stocked fishing pond, river tubing, game rooms, miniature golf and fitness center there's always something fun to do. Buck Valley Lodge gives our guests four bedrooms and three baths for sleeping up to eleven along with a beautiful view, comfortable furniture and a pool table game room makes it a perfect getaway.

What makes this cabin unique

Buck Valley Lodge is a perfect combination of knotty pine wood and traditional building materials, the feeling is very warm and inviting and give an unmistakably cabin feel. A roaring fire in the wood burning fireplace on a chilly evening gives all the ambiance and romance anyone could ask for. Buck Valley Lodge has a open concept floor plan so nobody feels left out whether in the kitchen or living areas. We are small dog friendly and are happy to talk to you about bringing your best friend to the mountains.

Beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at Buck Valley Lodge for Christmas vacation and enjoyed it immensely. This beautifully decorated cabin is comfortable, tidy, and very clean. The balconies were favorites of everyone, but I especially liked the covered, screened porch. The kitchen is one of the most well-appointed kitchens I have seen in a vacation rental. It had everything we needed to prepare meals for our group of seven adults. It rained most of the week, so we were not able to explore the area very much, but we found lots to do inside. We played pool, board/card games, watched the deer, and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The owners were very helpful and promptly returned our phone calls. They have made every effort to ensure a pleasant vacation for their guests. They even went to the trouble of putting up a Christmas tree for our celebration! I would recommend this cabin to anyone visiting the Ellijay/Blue Ridge area.

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great house and well stocked. Would highly recommend this to any friends. The beds were comfy and the sheets were so soft. We had a little problem with the hot tub (the panel was locked) and was able to reach the owners right away. They were wonderful to work with and were able to fix the problem over the phone. We actually sat in the hot tub and could see deer walking around the property. River was a short walk from the house.

Awesome Cabin - LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend with three other couples at Buck Valley and it couldn't have been nicer. We've been doing this get together for 15 years now and we all agreed that this cabin was the nicest we've stayed in to date. It was very clean, updated, decorated so nicely and the location was perfect. We were five minutes from town but felt like we had all the privacy in the world. Loved the hot tub, pool table and fire pit! The owners were awesome, communicated everything we needed to know and found their area guide on their website so helpful to planning. We have already reserved our next get together for next year at Buck Valley Lodge and can't wait to get back!

Wonderful Cabin A+++

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and kids decided to get out of the Florida heat with my in-laws and head to the the Georgia mountains for some quality time. We chose Buck Valley Lodge for our stay and couldn't be happier. The owners, Ron & Alley were wonderful to deal with. They were very patient with all my questions and the communication throughout was fantastic. The cabin is located just a couple miles from the heart of town but when your at the cabin you feel like you have the wilderness to yourself. We must have seen 30 deer just in the yard itself throughout our stay. The short walk down the Coosawattee River was a favorite for the kids. Each morning they would walk down and do some fishing. The cabin itself was as nice as the pictures, if not nicer. It was very clean with comfortable furniture and beds. The kitchen had everything we needed to make all our meals. The cabin was very spacious and even with nine of us never felt crowded. Even with night time temps in the high 70's we couldn't resist using the hot tub almost every night. (I need one at home now)! I would recommend this cabin to anyone (we will be back next summer!)

Great weekend at Buck Valley Lodge

  • 4 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at Buck Valley Lodge! The home was very clean, bright (great windows throughout), and comfortable for our needs. The large dining table was great for our group of seven to gather around for meals and games. We loved playing pool in the gameroom and soaking in the hot tub. The river is great for relaxing, fishing & tubing. The owners were very attentive to our needs when we had a few questions upon our arrival.

Approximately fifteen minutes from Whitepath Golf Course, and three different rivers that offer tubing and kayaking, horseback riding, fly-fishing, whitewater rafting, hiking, scenic trains rides, antiquing, hassle free shopping, mini golf, children's amusement park, deer park, Amicalola Falls, apple orchards and much, much more. We are located just outside of Ellijay with easy access to Blue Ridge. Great local restaurants and shopping are within a 15 minute drive.

This list will not do justice to all the activities and attractions in this area. The local chambers of commerce have a wealth of the same, as well as knowledgeable and friendly personnel who love to share information about their special corner of paradise. Of course, you can also research the towns and general area on the Internet. Hiking galore, including the Appalachian and the Benton MacKaye.

Fishing, boating, Jet Skiing, tubing, zip-lining, whitewater rafting--Lake Blue Ridge, Toccoa River, Ocoee River Horseback riding, golf, mountain biking, gem and gold panning.

Antiquing--Blue Ridge has been called the antique capital of GA, and Ellijay, with its charming roundabout (instead of the typical courthouse square), has its share, too. Swan Drive-In Theater is nearby, one of the few remaining today, operating since 1955.

Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, on which you can take a narrated ride from Blue Ridge to the twin cities of McKaysville GA and Copperhill TN and stand with one foot in GA and one in TN--marked with a big blue line painted through the IGA Grocery parking lot.

Apple businesses where you can view the process from orchard to grocery bag, tour the facilities, shop for apple-themed goods and goodies, and try one of the area's delights: the fried pie! Ellijay is known as the apple capital of GA.

Wonderful local restaurants--just a few: the Toccoa Riverside, where on weekend nights a duet of two elderly, overall-clad bluegrass pickers entertain; the Pink Pig in Cherry Log, President Jimmy Carter's favorite BBQ joint; Colonel Poole's BBQ in Ellijay, where the hillside is decorated with a giant outline of a pig compiled of hundreds of plywood pigs naming past patrons (some celebrities), and our favorite Italian place, Charlies in Ellijay.

Festivals throughout the year: for example, Apple Festival, Sorghum Festival, Prater's Mill Festival, GA Mountain Fair (demonstrations of old-timey mountain practices), Rhododendron Festival, Bluegrass Festival, Dahlonega's Gold Rush Days.

Numerous state parks, national parks, and national forests, each with its own amenities, activities, and gorgeous scenery.

Marked scenic drives/highways, almost all with scenic pull-overs and overlooks, especially important during our gorgeous autumn 'leaf-gawking' season.

Countless waterfalls, one of which (Amicalola) is the tallest cascading falls east of the Mississippi; in the cabin are a pamphlets with descriptions and directions to 11 falls in the area--all of which we've hiked to--only a couple are strenuous treks.

Just a few miles from the cabin is the longest suspension bridge east of the Mississippi, a very short and easy hike brings you to where it crosses the Toccoa River.

A little further away is Tallulah Falls and Gorge, the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi(notice a pattern here?)--we've hiked to the bottom of it, and it is strenuous, but magnificent.

Many other sights within a short drive, such as Brasstown Bald, the highest point in GA, Dahlonega's Gold Museum, the Alpine town of Helen. Also available in-cabin are such services as massage and gourmet chef.
