About Mary Spencer

Being a huge outdoor enthusiast, I have been visiting the North Georgia Mountains for years. The hiking is incredible, with marked and unmarked trails everywhere. The lakes are beautiful and so serene, plus the fishing is great. The towns of Ellijay and Blue Ridge are adorable and both have tons of great shops and restaurants. Makes it easy to enjoy all that nature has to offer and then be able to sit down at a nice "Mom and Pop" restaurant for some local trout and veggies. I bought my first little log cabin in 2000, which I thoroughly enjoyed with family and friends, so much so that I decided to buy my second one a few years later. Both of my girls grew up playing in the dirt, riding 4 -wheeler, picking blackberries and fishing in the creek. I now bring my 4 year old grand-daughter to the "cabin" so she can also have an opportunity to enjoy this amazing place and make some great memories.

I currently own 4 cabins ( all are listed on Homeaway/VRBO) and opened a company in 2010 called Morning Breeze Cabin Rentals, which manages a total of 60 log cabins throughout the Blue Ridge and Ellijay area. I would love for each and every one of you to come on up and experience all that the mountains of Blue Ridge have to offer. A lot has changed since the year 2000, we now have wineries, ziplines, fishing and hiking guides plus fine dining to add to the list of things to do and enjoy while visiting the beautiful mountains of North Georgia.

Why Mary Spencer chose Northwest High Country

When I first found The Stargazer it was a simple hunting shack consisting of one large room and a loft you couldn't stand in. The owner rarely used it anymore and everyone up on the ridge was afraid to approach him about selling it. As you can see from the pictures, the view is absolutely worth a million dollars and I really wanted that shack. I finally got up the nerve to ask and he said yes but take good care of it. I decided to keep the original structure intact and just add onto it. A nice size wing became the living, kitchen and eating area. I extended the deck which would not have been complete until I added a hot tub, small outdoor fireplace, table for eating and of course rockers. I now had my perfect mountain hideaway.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is located on the second highest privately owned peak in GA. I still remember the first time driving up the gravel, then dirt road, so excited to see what was at the top. The view is truly incredible and I can honestly say that after 10 years of driving up to the top, it still truly takes my breath away.

Owner's Response: Eric, Thank you for letting me know about your recent stay at the Stargazer. It sounds like you enjoyed your visit and I will definitely check into that faint spell you are referring too. I know very few guests even go down on the lower level but someone's dog may have ventured down the steps to take nap. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. ~ Mary

So Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We had such a relaxing stay. Nice and private, hot tub and view were amazing. We did find that the couch was more comfortable then the bed and the water was pretty brown but i was told that is common with cabins on well water. Short drive to Blue Ridge attractions

Map

Located on the 2nd highest privately owned peak in Georgia, there is hiking from the front door. The scenery is amazing, wildlife abounds and it's very quiet and peaceful. It's about 10 minutes from downtown Ellijay, where there are plenty of antique shops and restaurants and 15 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. In BR you'll find many upscale boutique shops and fine dining as well as the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. Lake Blue Ridge is also about 15 minutes away and you can rent boats and jet skies as well as fish. Horse-back riding is 10 minutes away, tubing down the river(s), one location is 10 minutes away the other about 20. Whitewater rafting on the Ocoee is about 30 to 45 minutes away and the Nantahala is about 90. Fishing is everywhere and we are known Internationally for our trout fishing. Amicalola falls is about 15 minutes away and Burt's Pumpkin Farm is the same distance, there's plenty of great trails in the area off of 52W as well as many of the Apple Farms. The beginning of the Appalachian Trail at Springer Mountain is also very close by.
