About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6, Covered Parking

Getaway from your daily hustle and bustle at BlackBeary Cottage; a cozy two bedroom, one bath cabin with room for six.

Relax with your favorite book in a rocking chair, roast marshmallows by the fire, hike the Benton MacKaye Trail, or fish one of 6 stocked lakes. Within ten minutes you will be in the quaint town of Blue Ridge where you can enjoy fine dinning(Harvest on Main), take a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, browse the many shops, or sample some local beer/wine. Or travel about fifteen minutes south to Ellijay, GA and visit the many apple orchards, taste some wine at Cartecay Vineyards, or explore some history at the Tabor House & Civil War Museum. A new winery Bear Claw has opened in Blue Ridge (Fall 2017) and is a short drive from the cabin.

Within a short distance you can enjoy white water rafting, horse back riding, hiking trails, fishing, canoeing, tubing, and some beautiful mountain views. If you enjoy playing some slots on your getaway, the Harrahs Casino is about 30 minutes away in Murphy, NC.

Although BlackBeary Cottage is a nice getaway to the mountains it has all the comforts of being at home: flat screen Sling TV, Netflix, wireless internet, fully stocked kitchen, gas fireplace, two bedrooms with queen sized beds, washer and dryer, and a propane grill.

About Tadd Howard

My wife and I grew up south of Buffalo, NY in a small farming town. Since starting our family we have wanted to give our children a taste of the country living we were able to experience. Cherry Log is the perfect spot for us to be able to make unforgettable memories with our children, family, and friends. We are excited to be able to share our home away from home with you and your family and hope you too will make memories that last a life time.

Tadd Howard purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Tadd Howard chose Blue Ridge

We love how quite and peaceful the property is. You would never know it's only 10 minutes to Blue Ridge or Ellijay.

Great location, easy access to town

It was wonderful, and very easy to get to. Isolated enough and yet close to town in case we needed to run a quick errand. I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you and your family. Having so much fun you forget which day you check out could cause an issue, thankfully this time we didn't have a guest arriving the same day you were to head home. Most of the time this would be have been a shocker to the cleaning crew when they arrived at 11am. Glad we were able to accommodate any extra night last minute. We look forward to having you again in the future.

We loved the cabin and found everything that we needed available. The ktichen is well equipped, and the appliances indoors and on the porch were just right,. Our first trip up to the cabin was a bit tough, but we didn't get lost as the instructions were great.

The area of Blue Ridge is beautiful and though we mostly enjoyed our time doing next to nothing, there were plenty of places to explore. Restaurantes were fine, and for food shopping we went to Wallmart, usually not our favorits store,

It was a great 5 days and we were thrilled to have found the cabin.

Gloria, Al; and Michael
