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.

Wow...just. Wow

This place is amazing. Clean, comfortable and loads of amenities. Everything we needed was there. I want to say the kids loved the game room, but the truth is, you couldn't get the adults of the arcade machine with old school favs like Dig Dug and Frogger. It was perfect for entertaining the whole family. The weather was perfect while we were there but we would have been just as happy to have been rained out and in the cabin all day. I cant wait to go back during the fall- The view will be even more amazing, and in the winter for the cozy cabin feel.

Absolutely perfect! We had such a wonderful time at the cabin and could not have asked for anything better. The entire cabin was clean, spacious, comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare all our meals. The game room was the perfect place for the entire group to hang out during the day while the fire pit and hot tub made for relaxing evenings. The only down side to the game room was that the air hockey table was basically unplayable because it was so rickety and we did not feel comfortable playing on it in fear of breaking it. Fortunately the rest of the cabin was so amazing it made up for this. The privacy and breathtaking view from the deck made our stay so peaceful. Not only is the cabin amazing but the owners made the rental process an absolute breeze! Do yourself a favor and stop your cabin search because this is your winner! We will definitely be staying here again only longer next time!

Owner's Response: Thank you Natalie for your review. Based on your comments we purchased a brand new Air Hockey table and it was put into service on April 7th !!!! We really appreciate your comments and so glad that you enjoyed the privacy, breathtaking views and all the other little touches that we have put into our place to make it a "home away from home" for others.

Great location. Clean, cozy and well equipped but the most important aspect are the owners. They are on top of their game, incredible to work with. Had a couple minor items when we checked in and they were on it within minutes. When on vacation, you want things to be hassle free and they were. Good people, good location, good cabin equals good vacation

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the cabin! We used all of the amenities provided and had a blast! The hot tub and fire place weren’t working for the first night, but they fixed it for the next night and compensated us with yummy wine! The fire place and game room were a complete hit and the space was perfect for all of us to have our own privacy! Thank you guys! We will be back next year :)
