2 Level D log cabin on 5 acres-450' on Hemptown Creek-Year Round Mountain Views
Georgia Sunset is a recently updated (BY US!) real log cabin by a meadow where the wild bees swarm-From the Keith Urban Song "Memories Of Us" Located just off Hwy. 76 and 9 scenic miles from downtown Blue Ridge this cabin is in a perfect location for your next adventure in the Blue Ridge Mountains! Positioned in a serene mountain valley lined with huge Leiland Cypress trees and fronting noisy, rocky, rushing Hemptown Creek! Sit on the back porch, relax in the hotub or walk by its banks and listen to the soothing melody of the rushing water over the rocks or you can try your luck fishing for rainbow trout! Hemptown Creek is stocked with trout 2 times a year by the Chattahoochee National Fish Hatchery! They arrive at the bridge near the cabin and deliver them!
Georgia Sunset is less than 2 miles from the 5 Star Lodge Venue.
If you are traveling by motorcycle or small car the access is very safe and easy! There are no worries here about treacherous mountain roads which are common in this mountainous area. As you approach the new concrete driveway you can get ready to relax and enjoy all the amenities offered here! The kiddos will enjoy skating and bicycling on the sloped driveway or playing ball in the yard to release some of their boundless energy!
Walking up to the front door you will step up to the wrap around porch that was just added to the cabin by the owners! The cabin has been freshly stained and a new red metal roof applied. As you step into the cabin you will notice the 2 story vaulted living room with antler chandelier and large triangle windows that add natural light and warmth to the cabin. You will want to kick back and take a break on the new leather furniture with 5 recliners! Use the rustic black walnut coffee table and end table built and finished by owners for that glass of iced tea and sink your toes into the new cabin area rug placed over the 1x6 refinished plank flooring! The reclaimed wood table with 2 chairs that holds the media equipment came from an old warehouse in the Gatlinburg area. Enjoy the viewing options of Direct TV/Netflix/Amazon on the wall mounted 55" Flat screen TV! Warm up by the stone faced fireplace with a red cedar log mantle and new gas logs! Up above hangs our huge mounted bull trophy elk and 16 antique lanterns around the perimeter of the living room that adds to the cabin atmosphere. We've also installed live bark edged wood trim around the ceiling of living/dining room with indirect LED mood lighting.
After a long day of hiking or sightseeing the porch covered Dynasty hot tub with LED color changing lighting will be a welcome sight! Listen to your favorite sports game or reminisce to some oldies while soaking in the hot tub! We've just added a Sony Bluetooth receiver and 2-100 watt exterior speakers on the back porch near the hot tub and grill. We've built a wooden bench with back support and a wooden bartop beside the hotub for enjoying food and drinks with other guests outside the hot tub.
The rustic dining table with side bench were also built by the owners. There are also an additional 4 dining chairs and 3 full sized bar stools with backs for eating at the kitchen bar.
The kitchen has tile countertops, a stainless steel LED LG refrigerator with ice maker, glass top SS range, SS dishwasher, large kitchen sink with pull out spray faucet. Starter dish soap, dishwasher tabs, paper towels are supplied. Waffle iron, food processor, 8 place settings of red dishware, and a load of kitchen gadgets to hone those culinary skills!
When you are ready to satisfy those hunger pangs there's a Napolean gas grill supplied with direct propane. No need to fumble with changing propane bottles. If you'll need to replenish the viddle supply there's plenty of choices within 15 minutes of the cabin!
We've just installed a new concrete walkway to the large and lighted metal roof covered picnic table by the creek and firepit. Oil rubbed bronze post lanterns light up the walkway at night for safe travels to the picnic area and firepit by the creek! There's also LED flood lights that will light up the creek at night. The firepit area has gravel and 4 wooden bench seats around the firepit. The Cowboy fire pit can also be used as a charcoal grill with the stainless steel grate provided.
Also downstairs there are 2 bedrooms with king sized log beds and night stands, 13" tempurpedic style mattresses that will have you dreaming in no time! (A well-loved amenity according to past guests reviews!) down alternative comforters and cabin quilts. Guests with allergies will appreciate the dustmite/ bed bug barrier covers on all pillows and bedding. Lamps, ceiling fans and large closets with shelving in both bedrooms.
After a long day of playing or fishing in the creek and the need arises to wash and dry laundry there is an extra large capacity Samsung washer and dryer, ironing board and iron, too. We also supply starter laundry detergent and dryer sheets.
There's an oversized 2 car garage with automatic garage door opener for storing all of your wind therapy toys!
Head upstairs to the balcony area where you can play the 40 game (Yes 40!) arcade gaming system! Brush up on those Centipede skills or teach those little ones how to play this favorite game! The owners built the wooden gaming enclosure with benches!

About Laura Lewis
We owned a general contracting company in NW Florida for many years before deciding to slow it down a notch and try to retire. We made a visit to this area though and fell in love! As the saying goes "We weren't born here but got here just as fast as we could!" This is our second cabin that we've remodeled. Our other cabin has been more successful than we could have ever imagined. VRBO #492217 We hope you enjoy our efforts here to make your vacation a fantastic one! We love to visit with our family and enjoy all of the activities this area offers. We love the friendly neighbors and residents of this area!
Laura Lewis purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Laura Lewis chose Morganton
We love the Morganton/Blue Ridge Georgia area and the Whispering Pines area on Hemptown Creek. When we found this log cabin on Hemptown Creek that needed remodeling we decided to dive in! Our friends joke with us and tell us we need to start a business called "Majestic Mountain Creations" Haha! Because we love restoring cabins. We named it Georgia Sunset because of the beautiful sunsets that are viewed from the back porch!
What makes this Cabin unique
It's challenging to find a beautiful stocked trout stream property with a mountain view. This is is the whole package! Bring all of your wind therapy toys with you and store them in the large 2 car garage.

Very well maintained and perfect getaway
We stayed here for our anniversary and loved the property. It's easy to get to and we really enjoyed the hot tub and creek side picnic area. Beds were comfortable, recliners were indulgent and the house was beautiful. Just a few minutes to Blue Ridge, which had excellent restaurants and fun shopping. Wish we could have stayed longer, a weekend just wasn't quite enough.
We loved this cabin! The owners have done a wonderful job of providing everything you need and making the space so comfortable. It was the perfect size with two young kids to be comfortable, but also to be able to keep an eye on them! Along with that, all the flat land surrounding the cabin was perfect for playing and running around without concerns for safety. The creek is beautiful and so peaceful and the hot tub is absolutely wonderful at the end of the day. We couldn't have asked for anything more; my kids have been asking to go back since the day we left!
This was a great experience from start to finish! The owners were so kind and helpful, and the cabin is so fantastic. From the arcade games to all the beautiful furniture this home was amazing. Everything was so clean and comfortable. We made memories my family, especially my 4 year old will cherish forever. Definitely will be back soon.
Cozy and comforting cabin
Upon arrival you can tell the property is well maintained. The living room area is well decorated and the fire place is perfect for the winter times.
The beds are very comfortable. The master room is lovely and has its own AC unit in the window.
The dishwasher is big and spacious as are the washer and dryer.
The hot tub looked immaculate upon arrival, it's obvious they take care of it properly.
The only con I could think is the lack of TVs in the guest rooms on the first floor. However, I'm sure this will no longer be an issue in the future as they ordered TVs for the home that arrived during our stay.
The environment is mostly quite with the occasional noise of semis in the distance.
Overall a fantastic cabin and experience.
Side note : a lot of the restaurants in nearby Blue Ridge are reservation only.
Home was super nice.
This home was new. It had a LOT of amenities that many of the vacation cabins don't have. It had a nice stream running across the back of the lot with along with a pavilion/sitting area with outdoor cooking set up.
We loved it!!! It was so beautiful there!
The property was beautiful! Extremely cozy and perfect for a little getaway! We had a wonderful time!! Thanks so much!
