Welcome to Sunshine Retreat !

Mountain Views from Hot Tub, Sleeps 10, **Game Room**, 10 min to Blue Ridge

Stop looking because you’ve just found your vacation home and it is waiting for you to make memories to last a lifetime.

Our location is absolutely perfect. If you are looking for a mountain getaway but don’t want to get ‘cabin fever’ then Sunshine Retreat is your ideal place. We are in a secluded location but you only have a short 12 minute drive to historic downtown Blue Ridge and 15 minutes to Blairsville, both with restaurants, movies, grocery, activities and shopping.

Nearby activities include hiking, fishing, tubing, rafting, antiquing, crafting, wineries and biking. Boat and wave runner rentals as well as water activities such as kayak, canoe, and paddle boarding are also nearby. The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, Swan Drive-In Theatre (since 1955), and many shops from mom and pop stores to upscale shopping are here for your enjoyment. Mercier Orchards is nearby for a great selection of fresh produce, “pick your own” in the fields or just stocking the cabin for your stay with yummy treats. Want to try Zip lining the luscious tree canopy of the mountains – Yes you can do that too. Are you a gambler? If so, Harrah’s Cherokee River Casino is only a 40 minute drive for a day or evening of blackjack, slots, craps, table games or roulette.

Your getaway has 3 private bedrooms plus a loft bedroom for a total of 4 sleeping areas. There are 3 full baths. The cabin comfortably sleeps up to 10 guests.

The living room has huge vaulted ceilings with cathedral windows looking over the mountains and a stunning rock fireplace (gas) to warm you up or simply add to the cabin ambience.

Each bedroom is furnished with beautiful custom log beds. There are two master suites, each with king beds, the loft has a queen bed and the final bedroom has two full beds and is located on the lower floor. All bedrooms have an amazing mountain view.

There are 4 flat screen TV’s located throughout the cabin with Direct TV service, each with its own DVD player. There is wireless internet service. There is also a small family oriented DVD library available for you to enjoy. Did we mention the Xbox 360 Kinect? We have that too with the following games waiting for you to challenge them: Kinect Adventures, Dance Central 2, Country Dance All Stars, Let’s Cheer, and Just Dance 4.

Challenge your “cabin mates” to a match on the Pool Table, Foosball, Air Hockey or a board game. Or just sit at the beautiful unique wood bar top supported by Jack Daniels barrels and enjoy a beverage of your choice and watch the game on the large 55” flat screen TV in this perfectly equipped game room.

Challenge your spouse, partner, sibling, parent, child or friends to a game of Pacman, Centipede, Galaga, Space Invaders, Frogger, Donkey Kong or even Ms. Pacman. We have a full size arcade game that has over 60 of your favorite arcade games. All without costing you a nickel. Let the indoor activities begin !

Feel free to feed the deer off the main deck or relax by the open fire in the back yard. A six (6) person hot tub is located on the deck with spectacular mountain views. The fully equipped kitchen provides plenty of room for you to prepare your favorite recipes or cook on the gas BBQ grill on the deck. Your crew will dine family style at a beautiful red cedar hand built table for 10 with additional bar stools at the counter. Enjoy the breathtaking sights from the rocking chairs or 2 person glider on the deck. You can also enjoy the additional rocking chairs on the balcony off the 2nd master suite upstairs.

Who doesn’t want to do laundry when on vacation? We have a full sized washer and dryer available for your use – but of course you won’t be needing that, right?

Bring a book, your favorite DVD’s and don’t forget the S’mores ingredients. This will be a vacation you won’t forget.

Regretfully we do not allow pets.

About Scott and Lisa

We love the Blue Ridge, Georgia area and purchasing this cabin was the logical next step. We have rented many cabins in the past so we know what is important to have in a rental and we have worked to make our cabin "your cabin" during your stay. Our primary home is on the west coast of Florida. Scott grew up in New Jersey and Lisa in Florida. We both work in healthcare. We enjoy traveling and are avid Trip Advisors contributors. We have a large family and strive to make our cabin family friendly. After purchasing, we "test drove" our cabin several times with our children and even some of their friends. We knew we did ok when our teenagers didn't want to go back home to Florida.

Scott and Lisa purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Scott and Lisa chose Morganton

Location. Location. Location. We chose this area to "get away" from everything and that is what our cabin allows. However, we are a short drive (10-15 minutes) to the downtown areas of Blue Ridge and Blairsville, both of which have lots of great restaurants, groceries stores, shopping and tons of fun things to do.

What makes this cabin unique

We purchased this cabin for several reasons. First the view is incredible. You can sit in the hot tub and just stare at the stars or look at the long range mountain views all day long. The second reason was the location. When in our cabin, we feel like we are secluded but all necessary amenities are a very short drive away. Another reason was comfort. This cabin has the cozy feel of a home away from home. Something that many of the other properties we looked at did hot have. A place that we are comfortable calling home and you will be too.

Great time in the mountains!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome!! We were very impressed with the attention to detail throughout. It was very clean & organized!! The kitchen was well stocked with great pots and pans, griddles and utensils!! They had a great coffee machine, and we really didn’t want for anything. The quality of the grill was great, we cooked out each night, soaked in the really nice hot tube and had a ball playing on all the equipment in the game room!! The view was fabulous, and waking each morning with coffee on that porch was heaven!! Loved it, we will definitely be back!! 😍?

Awesome week at the cabin, away from our crazy every day life. Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days at Sunshine Retreat, 4 adults and 4 children (ages 5-16). From the moment we arrived we fell in love with the cabin. It was even better than on the pictures. Spotlessly clean, very tastefully decorated, comfortable and so peaceful!

Our mornings started out on the balcony, sitting with our coffee, enjoying the priceless view as the sun came up and the fog lifted from the mountains.

Our days were very busy, because there is so much to do around. We went on several hikes with beautiful waterfalls at the end of the trails (Anna Ruby Falls was breathtaking), tubing down the Toccoa river, visited the gorgeous alpine town of Helen and loved downtown Blue Ridge. One of the highlight of our programs was renting a pontoon on Lake Chatuge, at Boundary Waters Resort and Marina. Their price for the whole day was as much as it would have been for half a day on Lake Blue Ridge. We got a brand new boat with a tube and a much bigger lake. We had a blast cruising all the way up to North Carolina waters, fishing, tubing and we anchored down for some swimming.

We discovered a relatively new horse ranch, Apalachian Trail Rides and went on a trail ride on horseback.

After all the adventures it was so nice to come back to our cabin, to enjoy a glass of wine and relax in the hot tub, play in the game room or enjoy the firepit, kids roasting marshmallows.

Scott and Lisa went out of their way to make our stay memorable, to feel home and to make sure everything was perfect. They answered all our questions promptly at any time of the day. The cabin felt secluded enough to feel peaceful and private, but still everything was just a short ride away.

We can not wait to come back again!

Spectacular views, luxuries, fun

  • 5 of 5

In town for a family event, we retreated here to relax, regroup, and enjoy being together. Every comfort is anticipated; cabin is well built/maintained; owners communicate wonderfully, eager to provide the best experience possible to travelers. Views from inside and out were amazing! We definitely want to return soon! Thank you, Lisa & Scott!

Awesome cabin and wonderful owners!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place!!! We looked at many places on Homeaway , this one was everyone's favorite. We made the right decision in choosing Sunshine Retreat. It went above and beyond our expectations. The photos are great but you have to see this place in person, simply beautiful inside and out. It was the first time we ever stayed in Georgia and the first time some of the kids have ever been to the South. Scott and Lisa are great!! They were helpful every step of the way. Every message I sent they replied to really quick. I had a few glitches on my end and they helped me through it. They have made their home into a paradise for their renters. This place is big and spacious even with 4 generations of us staying here it never felt crowded.The views are amazing and the cabin itself has everything you could want, especially when traveling with kids (and adults that play like kids lol) The pool table, arcade, air hockey, hot tub and even the chess game were enjoyed by all. One of my favorite things to do was sitting on the deck enjoying the views. We even had a local visitor named Rose, that came and hung out on the deck with us. Such a sweet dog, the kids looked forward to her visits. We would definitely stay here again, but next time we need more than 3 days. We were all sad that our time here went by so quick.Thank you Scott and Lisa for sharing your home. The memories of the time spent here will last a lifetime.

We do hope you'll be able to return in the future and stay even longer.

Sunshine Retreat is a real Gem!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived and turned to go up the road we saw a deer just waiting for us! We walked in this wonderful cabin with unbelievable views. Everything you needed is available to you. They even have an essential oil diffuser! The hot tub was top quality. We played Pac-Man and had competitions on the air hockey table and pool table. Very clear instructions were available for all items which were helpful. They thought of everything to make your stay there comfortable. Looking forward to going back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the awesome review Sandi. We truly appreciate it. We wish that we could take credit for the deer when you drove up our road but we think that'd be hard to believe. So glad you had a great quality family experience and so happy you enjoyed your time. We'd love to welcome you back in the future. Thanks again Lisa & Scott
