"I have to start off by saying, that I am not a planner and literally sent a request to these owners at 11pm the night before we embarked on our journey to Blue Ridge. Owners are supposed to have 24 hrs to accept or deny your request. As you can see, this was less than 24 hrs upon our arrival. Around 9:50 am, I decided to call the owner, Don & Faye, as we were already driving up to Blue Ridge to see if they could accommodate the 4 us. Faye explained they had someone departing that same day. However, she would see if her cleaner could get in and have it ready for our arrival around 7pm. I explained that if she couldn't have it ready that day, we would gladly check in the following day. She called me back a couple hours later and said it would be ready! We were so grateful and my 2 boys were so excited. I even extended our stay by one day and she drove an hour to meet me, at the cabin, so I could sign the documents and give her the money for the extra day. The cabin is in perfect condition and every cooking utensil you would need is available. Beds were comfortable and my kids loved the downstairs bunk beds and Wii. I even appreciated that they left condiments, in the extra fridge, so I didn't have to purchase them for our short stay. I know some people would never use what was left over from other guests, but if it's not expired and in a bottle, I say, leave it for the next guest. The town of Blue Ridge is so quaint and adorable. We loved visiting the downtown area for dinner. Was disappointed at how early everything closed, but at least we were able to find some very good restaurants. Some of our favorites were Southern Charm(Sooo good), Christy Lees Courtyard Grill (Yummy Seafood), Masseria(Great Pizza & Italian), Chesters(Best wings I have ever eaten) and if you want an amazing Burger, you must go to Sue's Cafeteria and Ice Cream Parlor! Fresh to order burgers and they are soooo good! I wish we could've tried more places , but we ran out of time. As a family we enjoyed the 1.5 hour tube ride down the Toccoa River, 1hr horse back riding, We found Long Creek Falls(was not easy, per the directions, and the drive was 5 miles down a dirt road with LOTS of pot holes, then you hiked 1.5miles to the falls), Enjoyed the new Adventure in the Air park(Great obstacles for all levels), enjoyed a little putt putt and one evening we ended at the Swan Drive In(A Must). Blessed to see a couple deer around the property too! Loved it"
