Cabin Fever in Blue Ridge
Come up to Georgia's Blue Ridge and stay in the mountain cabin of your dreams!
Personalized, private and full of amenities, there’s nothing like a cabin to complete a Blue Ridge mountain experience. Whether you’re planning a romantic escape, a group getaway or an inter-generational family gathering, a Blue Ridge cabin can perfectly set the stage, with plenty of options from rustic to ultra-luxe. Because 40 percent of Fannin County is located within the Chattahoochee National Forest, sweeping views of the wilderness can be enjoyed from windows and decks or on a close-by hike in the woods to a waterfall. Maybe even your own private woods and waterfall. We’re not kidding: If you can imagine your perfect cabin vision and scenery, you can find it here.
Longing for warm woods, stone fireplaces and architectural details, nooks for long conversations and porches or decks for morning coffee and evening sunsets with cocktails? There’s a cabin for that. Actually, there are dozens upon dozens. Want to combine mountain views with lakeside boating, festive but casual marina dining and all the simple pleasures of lake life? Plenty of accommodations are located on Lake Blue Ridge and also on the Toccoa River.
Have beloved fur-kids? Pets prefer cabins, paws-down. Especially with a meadow for running or on a mountain stream for checking out tantalizing new aromas. If they get their feet wet, they can dry off outside or on the porch where Mom, Dad and the cabin owners don’t mind. (Just bring your clean-up supplies and your well-behaved beloveds.) On the website, type “Pet-friendly” in the search bar and you’ll find cabins, restaurants and more that welcome your furry family. Here’s more about fido-friendly Blue Ridge on the blog.
Have a huge crowd of kids, adults and grandparents and need several floors with high- and low-tech entertainment areas, plenty of bathrooms, maybe bunks and dorm sleeping set-ups for the grands? There’s a lodge-style cabin for that. There’s even one that holds up to 24 on a huge ranch with horseback riding, tennis and basketball courts, skeet shooting, firepits and outdoor gathering areas and a large playground. (We told you to imagine it and the dream getaway will materialize!) Or, for even more room and privacy, work with a cabin rental company to find two to several adjacent cabins so the social extroverts won’t disturb the introverts!
Get a little muddy on your kayak trip? There’s likely a spot to hose off outside and a deck to dry off on. Packing is easier, knowing that a washer and dryer is on-site. No time to wash the kids’ favorite T-shirts before leaving home? Bag them up as is and toss them in the wash–tantrum averted!
For many, cooking together and sharing recipes and meals is the absolute best part of cabin life, not to mention the grazing and snacking in-between. Cabins are here for it, with kitchens ranging from efficiency essentials to chef-worthy epicurean. Outdoor kitchens range from a grill and firepit to designer layouts. For takeout and supplies, The Cabin Concierge service delivers flowers, groceries and meals from a wide variety of sources around the area, including casual and fine dining. For the ultimate culinary experience, private chefs such as Chef Steve of Blue Duck, Chef Jeff Servin or Chef Trey Griffith can prepare an amazing multi-course meal, entertain and provide all the details while guests relax and enjoy.
Massage and wellness
More than 15 centers for beauty, fitness and wellness are located here, including day spas, salons, Crossfit, yoga, herbal therapy and more. Call the Fannin County Chamber Visitors Center to find certified massage therapists for an in-cabin session.
Our lodges, cabins and tiny houses are one of the many reasons why Blue Ridge was ranked by Southern Living Magazine as one of the South’s Best Mountain Towns. The Blue Ridge website is set up for browsing, and many cabin rental companies can help arrange the perfect fit.
