About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Log cabin in the woods of the North Georgia Mountains ----- We call it 'A SIMPLE LIFE'. Pay via On Line Booking or via Check.

Quiet & private property situated on 2 acres, located in log cabin community on Sunrise Mountain. Other cabins are on 2 acre lots that can only be seen from the road - you will have lots of privacy, yet not be isolated. Open with high ceilings in living room. Wood floors, walls, and ceilings with ceiling fans. Fireplace.

First floor has master bedroom with queen-size bed (with great view to outdoors) and full bathroom. First floor also has second bedroom with twin beds (can be brought together) and a second full bath. Upstairs is a large loft with two twin beds. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room. Full width SCREENED porch with porch swing and rocking chairs overlooking woods and mountains (beautiful sunsets) -- year-round view. Relax in the hammock.

Cabin is somewhat KID-FRIENDLY if needed (our little ones are not so little anymore). In closet: High chair, Potty chair, safety gate, Pak N Play. Small chairs on porch -- few breakables. For older kids (& you!) there is a tree swing (toddler bucket available). FOOSBALL TABLE as well!

Pets are NOT allowed, No Smoking inside.

Nice Campfire area near cabin, with 2 level tent sites - fun for the kids or parents who want a convenient camping experience. Our twin boys love camping with dad, while mom is happy to read a book on the screened in porch swing.

Minutes away are many outdoors activities (rafting, tubing, hiking, zip-lining, Blue Ridge Lake & beach) and you'll also enjoy the quaint town square with lots of antique/gift shops, tea room, candy/ice cream parlor, etc. Lots of Great new restaurants!

Therapeutic Sundance hot tub for 5-6 persons has colored lights. Spa is on large deck also equipped with outdoor grill & very large wood dining table!

Last 1/2 mile is a well maintained and not dangerous gravel road with 2 ways to the cabin. Most every vehicle can handle the last steep stretch, 4WD is NOT needed (we have a minivan) but an extremely lightweight or underpowered car is not recommended.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ali & I came here for peace and sweet fellowship. I have loved sitting in my PJ's and talking & sharing while the weather outside was in the teens. I loved going to the drive-in movies in the snow and wrapped in blankets and layers of clothes laughing at chick flicks. This has been so sweet, fun, and safe. I feel our friendship has taken a deeper and more meaningful turn. Thank you for sharing this special place with me.

Absolutely Charming!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed spending Christmas in this cozy mountain cottage! We were also so pleasantly surprised to see it so nicely decorated for the holidays! It was very convenient to town, right near a nice little wine vineyard. The view was absolutely gorgeous, especially during sunrise and sunset! Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Even though we only celebrated Christmas Day a few times at the cabin, it seems even more magical when it is decorated for the Holidays, so we spend the extra effort. We are so glad you enjoyed your time there.

Excellent Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great for our family vacation. Close to downtown Blue Ridge with lots of great activities within easy reach. The cabin was beautiful and the views were wonderful. We enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of hiking.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. It is a never ending effort to maintain and improve so the experience at A Simple Life is excellent. And Blue Ridge itself offers so much now. Plan to return soon.

The Simple Life

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very nice and peaceful. Enjoyed morning coffee on the porch., All though it rained a little everyday we would sit on the porch and watch the storm come in.The grandsons thorough enjoyed the hanging string game, It took us a few days to figure out what it was and what it did, The first person to score the game won $10.00 . The youngest grandson was very determined and it made off. We rode the scenic railroad up the mountain learned alot and love the ride..Thank you for simple life with for sharing

Very kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

This cabin had everything we needed and more. The swing was absolutely amazing and unexpected that it was so long and smooth from the tree top! Great fun. Also very convenient to fun things nearby. I highly recommend Bear Claw Winery which has a ton of games and cornhole for the kids which was nice and just a lovely atmosphere to end the afternoon with. I also recommend Lily pad for gem mining and Amicalola state park for hiking to beautiful falls and lodge at the top of the mountain. Kids and us went zip lining which was awesome.

Bruce and his family have kept this cabin very functional and fun! And gorgeous sunsets from the screened in porch.

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property was so cozy and provided all amenities we could have possibly needed! The hot tub and cable/WiFi was definitely huge bonus from other cabins I have stayed in. Trip to town for groceries or food was 10-15 min to just about anything we needed and we enjoyed all the best of Blue Ridge that we could in our short duration!

Thank you for your wonderful cabin!

Great little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great, relaxing time at your cabin! Beautiful view, and cozy home with everything you would need. This was our last vacation as a family of 3 before our baby boy arrives and it was just what we needed.

Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!
