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 Ellijay

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.

The most amazing, romantic view ever!

  • 5 of 5

We spent endless hours in the hot tub just gazing out over the mountains. The cabin had everything we needed. The kitchen was well-stocked so we cooked all our meals at the cabin. We thought we'd go into Blue Ridge but ended up just hanging out at the cabin playing football and enjoying the hot tub. This special time with my husband was what we needed. We will be back for our anniversary. Thank you so much!

It truly sounds like you and your husband enjoyed the cabin and all the amenities it offers ( I bet you were playing Foosball, not Football lol) . Please keep the Stargazer in mind for the next time you are visiting the gorgeous North GA Mountains ~ Mary

Somewhat disappointed in cabin

  • 3 of 5

I have hesitated to give a response because I do not like to be somewhat negative. Yes, we enjoyed the beautiful view from the deck but was somewhat disappointed in the cabin. It is a ways up a very curvy, narrow road, but we adjusted to that. I will just get straight to my feeling on the cabin. There is a leak under the kitchen sink that needs fixing. A dirty rag was left in the kitchen sink. The cabin was surface clean but needs a deep cleaning. Since we stayed 6 nights I needed to make some adjustments like where will I put my hair products and makeup. The bathroom has no vanity. I used the narrow table in the bedroom that had a mirror above it. Not much space nor light but I adjusted. Clean pillows on sofa would have been nice. More kitchen counter space would have been nice. We needed a regular size coffee pot. The king size bed had two regular size pillows. I went out and got two pillow cases for two extra pillows I found in closet. This made pillows all across the bed. The basement was only used for washing and drying clothes. The basement TV must play the same channel as the upstairs so I saw no use for using it. The picture upstairs had one clear channel; therefore nothing else to choice from. We were out of water for a while but it soon was running again with very rusty water. This cleared up in a few days. I would say clean the artifical flowers around or toss them out. The vent under the black kitchen cabinet really needs a cleaning. I realize this is a rural and rustic cabin made for two, but I guess I was expecting a little more modern conveniences. For a couple staying a few days then it may well be the cabin they want. It does have an awesome view. Some things cannot be changed and we realized that, but also we expected a few things better for a more enjoyable stay.I have tried to give my honest experience.

Owner's Response: Glynda, so sorry you didn't enjoy your stay at the Stargazer. I get such good reviews on the property and I will mention that It is portrayed in the pictures exactly how it is. A small one bedroom cabin for a couple with an amazing view. The vanity in the bathroom as well as the kitchen counters are all clearly displayed in the photos. I have supplied a Keurig as well as regular coffee pot for my guests since some people like one over the other. I do apologize for the Well issue, as you mentioned, it was resolved. I will also mention that the cabin has a deep clean twice per year in-between the regular cleans we do after each guest departure. This one was was scheduled mid July. So I do apologize that you were there right before that and that the cabin may not have been perfect. Since this cabin is rented to only couples, I choose not to have another box for the lower level TV's. I do have the basic package with over 70 channels to choose from, as well as a DVD player with video library. I am not sure if you had it on the wrong input, but the channels are available and I confirmed this with the cleaner after receiving your review. I will mention for customers reading this, the pictures are very accurate as to what this cabin is, a small one bedroom with lots of outdoor deck space, one of the best views in North Georgia and definitely off the beaten path. The road up in not narrow at all, two cars can pass each other but it is dirt/gravel and bumpy in places. If this is the escape you are looking for, then this is the cabin for you :)

Amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this cabin. It was clean and had all the amenities one could ask for. Everything was working. It was very cozy and relaxing. We used it as out hub to go in mountain biking trips. I would score my stay a 5 if it had not been for the steep and rocky gravel road we had to use to drive up to the cabin. We were glad to had gone in the pick up truck and not in the regular car. Out regular car would not have made it up there.

Owner's Response: Simone, thank you for the great review and so happy to hear you enjoyed the view and the cabin. It is quite the ride up, being located on the second highest privately owned peak in Georgia, but soooo worth it for that incredible view of the Rich Mountains. Come back and stay with me again :)

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.
