About the property

2 Level D log cabin on 5 acres-450' on Hemptown Creek-Year Round Mountain Views

Georgia Sunset is a recently updated (BY US!) authentic 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 luxury cabin is in a perfect location for your next adventure in the Blue Ridge Mountains! Positioned in a serene mountain valley lined with huge Leyland 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!

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 that are quite 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 can enjoy their scooters and bicycles on the sloped driveway or playing ball in the front, back or side yard to release some of their boundless energy!

Walking up to the front door you will want to get busy rockin' (in our double wooden rocker that is!) when you see the covered wrap around porch we've built onto the cabin! The cabin has had fresh stain applied and a bright red metal roof! As you step into the cabin you will notice alot of rustic eye candy, but probably the first thing to catch your eye will be our huge mounted trophy bull elk! A definite guest favorite! Then you're sure to notice the 2 story vaulted living room ceiling with antler chandelier and large triangle windows that add natural light and warmth to the cabin. You will surely want to kick back and take a break on the 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 the fireplace around the perimeter of the living room/dining room hangs our 16 antique lanterns that definitely 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 that's great to use at night!

You'll also be ready to cook up your viddles when you see the rustic wooden dining table and side bench built by the owners! The legs of the table are made from old locust fence posts harvested from the creek side property! Up above the dining table is a chandelier and there's also an additional 4 dining chairs and 3 swivel log bar stools for seating at the large eat in kitchen bar nearby!

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 well-equipped kitchen has tile countertops, a stainless steel LED LG refrigerator with ice maker, glass top SS range, SS dishwasher, and large kitchen sink with pull out spray faucet. To help with food prep there's a Ninja food processor, and a load of kitchen gadgets to hone those culinary skills! There's a set of Tramontina 3-ply Stainless Steel cookware to cook that country breakfast and a full set of red dishware to serve it in! The Lewis family loves to cook and grill out so we know what guests need and want! We supply dish soap, paper towels, kitchen garbage bags, and a kitchen sponge!

When you are ready to satisfy those hunger pangs there's a Napolean gas grill supplied with unlimited propane and an automatic shut-off just in case it's forgotten. No need to fumble with changing out propane bottles. In case of a snack attack there's plenty of food shopping choices within 10 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 blue LED flood lights that will light up the creek at night. Make sure you look closely for our huge beavers we've seen in the creek at night! The firepit area has a gravel floor and 4 double wooden bench seats around the firepit. The Cowboy fire pit can also be used as a charcoal grill with the stainless steel grate provided.

Downstairs there are 2 bedrooms with king sized log beds and night stands, 13" gel-infused 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/waterproof 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 or Frogger skills and teach those little ones how to play these favorite games from the 80's era! The owners also built the wooden gaming enclosure with benches!

The private upstairs master bedroom/bathroom suite has a soaring vaulted ceiling with loads of rustic log furniture and a 43" HD Flat Screen Smart TV with Direct/Netflix/Amazon! The rustic furnishings include a King size gnarly log bed, 5 drawer gentlemens chest, 6 drawer mirrored dresser, 2 drawer sitting bench, 2-1drawer nightstands with 2 carved bear 3-way lamps! The king-sized bed has a 13 inch gel-infused memory foam mattress that will have you feeling like you are sleeping in a marshmallow! Our guests are always asking us where they can buy a mattress like that! (We've had past guests tell us they bought one just like it after sleeping on them! Promise that's true!) For a low-allergy environment there's a bedbug/dust mite/waterproof barrier on all mattresses and pillows.

About Laura Lewis

Hello there! Thanks for checking out our cabin for your getaway! We are Greg and Laura Lewis and we've been married for 40 years. We were high school sweethearts and were born and raised in Pensacola and Milton, Florida respectively! We have 4 grown sons, 3 daughters/in law and 3 grandsons/4 granddaughters!

We owned and managed a general contracting company in NW Florida for 20 years before deciding to slow it down a notch and just maintain our rental properties in Florida for our living.

We made our first ever visit to this area though in 2012 and fell head over heels in love! As the local 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. We've put a lot of time and love into this cabin, building some of the furniture, adding the wrap porch and doing all of the remodeling ourselves!

Our first cabin has been more successful than we could have ever imagined. VRBO #492217 It is located on the mountain above this cabin! We hope you enjoy our efforts here to make your vacation a fantastic one!

We love to have family get-together here in the off-season and enjoy all of the activities this area offers. We love the friendly neighbors and residents of this area and have made many close friends here!

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 porches!

What makes this cabin unique

It's challenging to find a beautiful stocked trout creek property with a mountain view. We've had many people and guests call it Pure Paradise! Swim or wade in the rushing creek or try your hand at trout fishing! This is is the whole package!

Bring all of your wind therapy toys with you and store them safely in the large 2 car garage.

Relaxing cabin stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the area many times throughout the years and this was a wonderful location. Secluded yet close to nearby towns. The cabin itself is decorated beautifully. The kids and I enjoyed the creek out back immensely. The hot tub was a great way to unwind after a day of exploring. Very good contact with the owners throughout. I certainly recommend the cabin for your family vacation.

Best cabin we have stayed in our summer trips to Blue Ridge.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was amazing. The creek and gazebo are a great location to read a book or have a picnic. The location is close to Blue Ridge and Blasville. The cabin is stocked with everything you need. We hope to stay at the cabin at in our next visit.

You’ll be disappointed to leave!

  • 5 of 5

One simply can not put into this tiny box on how amazing this rental is! We were extremely pleased with our stay. Laura is absolutely a pleasure to deal with. She was so accommodating and kind. This property is beyond gorgeous. The view is picturesque. The house is immaculate. Everything was perfect inside. We seriously had no complaints other than we needed more time here! The living room was cozy, the rooms were sizable, (2) bathrooms that makes a trip easier when you have multiple people in your party, and the beds....ohhhhh those comfy beds! There is an upstairs section that has an old school arcade game that my husband and daughter couldn’t get enough of. In the evening, we loved sitting on the porch or in the hot tub, watching the lightning bugs light up, and listening to the creek flowing. My husband and dad liked all the opportunities to fish while there. My husband actually caught a small trout in the creek on the property which was super exciting(we released him). Lake Blue Ridge Marina has some beautiful views too that shouldn’t be missed. I do highly recommend going on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway while there. Our daughter especially loved it and the staff was entertaining. Downtown Blue Ridge near the station is so quaint and has some cool shops/cafe’s. The Southern Charm Restaurant was quite tasty so be sure to try it! One of the neighboring towns, Blairsville, was having its annual Scottish Festivals during our visit so we made a day of that which was so interesting! This was one of our most favorite adventures. We definitely can not wait to plan our next trip here!

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We have 3 kids and sometimes vacations aren’t exactly relaxing, but this one was! There was room for everyone to sprawl out, and places where we could all be together right at the cabin. The furniture was all very clean and comfortable, especially the pillows and beds! We text Laura to find out what the mattresses are bc we want to get them for our house they’re so great!

There was a lot to do within a short distance from the cabin, which was fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay, and will be back!
