Our log home offers the perfect atmosphere to kick back and relax. Sit by the fire at one of the three fireplaces (including one on the outdoor covered porch), cook a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen, dine at our table overlooking the Appalachian mountains, enjoy watching the large variety of birds who frequent our bird feeders, soak in the hot tub, or watch a good movie in the surround sound theater. Blue Ridge, Georgia is one of the top art destinations in the country and features a unique shopping experience in its downtown shops and galleries. Enjoy the Blue Ridge Community Theater, the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, the Swan Drive-In Theater, and an environment that includes pristine National Forests to hike, bike, tube, swim, hunt, fish, or just celebrate art and nature. Did we mention Fannin County is the Trout Capital of Georgia? The log lodge sits on the edge of the Chattahoochee National Forest amidst acres of pine and hardwood trees. From the comfort of swings, rockers and comfortable chairs on our wrap-around porches, enjoy the views of the cascading Blue Ridge Mountain range. You will love the privacy of our mountain location, yet it's less than three miles from the Appalachian Highway that takes you to several hiking trails, cascading waterfalls, kayaking, water rafting, canoeing, fishing and zip line fun -- all within a 15 to 30 minute drive. The charming town of Blue Ridge, only five miles from our home, has antique shops, boutiques, art galleries, and unique restaurants. An old fashioned locomotive takes visitors on short trips into the Appalachians -- and during the Christmas season, the train is decorated for children as the Polar Express. Arts and crafts festivals plus Blue Grass concerts occur throughout the year. Twenty-five miles away is the nationally acclaimed John C. Campbell Folk School teaching traditional crafts, music, dance, and cooking in the mountains of North Carolina. (Visit their website at www.folkschool.org) You might enjoy taking a class there, but if not, on Fridays they host free concerts that are always enjoyable. Despite these options for activities, our guests tell us their favorite things to do are to sit on our covered pavilion enjoying the wood burning fireplace, or soaking in the hot tub viewing the star constellations, or relaxing in the two lodge living areas by the gas fireplaces. It's not unusual to see wild turkeys, deer, fox, (or even a black bear!) We have three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The master bedroom has a king bed. The other bedrooms have queen beds. We also have WiFi and DISH satellite television. We are open to car exchanges.

1. Relaxing Take a Deep Breath and Relax …….. Surround yourself with beauty, relaxation and natural fun in Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, only 90 miles north of Atlanta via I-575 and Hwy 515, but a million miles away from the traffic, stress and anxiety of the city. With 106,000 acres located in the Chattahoochee National Forest, Blue Ridge is definitely the cure for whatever ails you. 2. Exploring Enjoy Mother Nature at Her Best Winter, summer, spring and fall, Georgia’s Blue Ridge is simply beautiful. Winter is cool and quiet with occasional snow. Spring is best for trout fishing, wildflower displays, blooming dogwoods and native azaleas. Summer brings a profusion of mountain laurel and rhododendron blossoms, along with warmer water for tubing & rafting. Blue Ridge is the perfect place to celebrate the harvest and the glorious color of fall, or to enjoy the holidays with family and friends. 3. Shopping Fall in Love with Blue Ridge You will fall in love with the authentic mountain towns of Blue Ridge and McCaysville. Blue Ridge was once considered an elite health resort because of its pure mineral waters. Visitors would ride the train to town, eat dinner and take a leisurely walk to the mineral springs after dinner. Today, visitors still ride the train and take a walk along Main Street, enjoying the antique and specialty shops, galleries, restaurants, small town atmosphere and friendly people. A river runs through the quaint town of McCaysville, twin city with Copperhill, Tennessee. Stand in both states at one time at the Blue Line, which marks the spot where Georgia ends and Tennessee begins. 4. Dining Have a Taste of the Mountains Experiencing local cuisine is part of the trip when you visit Georgia’s Blue Ridge. Now, with the addition of some wonderful new restaurants, the choices of dining spots are simply amazing, from gourmet to traditional Southern cuisine. 5. Buying Local Enjoy Homegrown – Homemade Goodies Buying local fruits, vegetables and homemade goodies is a big part of the Blue Ridge experience, especially when it includes a visit to Mercier Orchards, largest orchard in the southeast and family farm for 65 years. Treat yourself to a farm tractor tour and u-pick fruit in season. Also see Mountainview Orchards, a traditional apple orchard and fruit market, and eat good Southern food at the Cider House Café. 6. Riding the Scenic Railway Experience Living History Don’t miss the train! Take a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, which runs along the Toccoa River from Blue Ridge to McCaysville. Board the train at the historic depot in Blue Ridge. The view changes with the seasons, wildflowers and mountain laurel in the spring, rhododendron in the summer, gorgeous foliage in the fall and a ride with Santa and his elves for Christmas. Open April through December. 7. Hiking Hike the Appalachian Trail to a Local Waterfall Two of the greatest outdoor adventures in the world begin in Fannin County. Both the Appalachian and Benton MacKaye Trails start at the top of Springer Mountain. There are over 300 miles of hiking trails in the area, including short trails suitable for beginning hikers and families. 8. Rafting & Tubing Float the Beautiful Toccoa River The most popular family pastime in the summer is probably tubing the clear, chilly Toccoa River either above the Lake Blue Ridge dam on Aska Road or below in McCaysville. But there are lots of ways to enjoy our rivers, streams and lakes, including rafting the exciting Ocoee River, renting canoes or kayaks, pontooning or jet skiing on Lake Blue Ridge, or even surfing on the river or the lake. 9. Playing in the Water Discover Natural Water Parks The best water parks are those created by nature. Morganton Point on Lake Blue Ridge is a Chattahoochee National Forest recreation area with camping, fishing, swimming beach and picnic areas. Another favorite spot for families is the Ocoee Whitewater Center just over the Tennessee state line, where the Olympic kayak slalom course is perfect for wading and sliding over the rocks when the river is not running (weekdays). The Whitewater Center is also a great place for hiking and biking with kids. Be sure to bring water shoes for the kids at either location. 10. Horseback Riding Ride Horseback on Mountain Trails Blue Ridge riding stables specialize in family trail rides for kids of almost all ages. Open year round with seasonal hayrides and evening wagon rides with campfire dinners. Call for reservations and to book special group events. 11. Fishing Catch a Trophy Trout Fannin County is the Trout Capital of Georgia. There are over 100 miles of great trout fishing rivers, creeks and streams in the area, including Jack's River, Conasauga River, Toccoa River, Rock Creek, Noontootla Creek and Cooper Creek. Please consult the Georgia Guide to Trout Fishing, available free at the Welcome Center, for details as to season, creel limits and size restrictions. 12. Celebrating Spend Quality Time with Family & Friends Whether it’s playing Scrabble or Monopoly in your cabin, hiking to a waterfall, going to a festival or the Swan Drive-in, the best thing about visiting Georgia’s Blue Ridge is spending quality time with family and friends.
