Main level BR with queen bed, upper level bedroom king bed, upper level bedroom queen bed, lower level queen sleeper sofa. Located at 3,000 ft. alt. and on 2.5 + acres, only 06 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge & 60 minutes from Atlanta. The area is filled with nearby family activities.

Antler Ridge Getaway : The cabin is a true log cabin, located near the top of Laurel Ridge Mountain (3,000 elevation) in Blue Ridge, Georgia. The three bedrooms are spacious with queen beds (main level & upper level) in two and king bed (upper level) in the third. One of the full baths is located on the main level across from the queen bed bedroom and the other on the upper level between the master bedroom and the second queen bed bedroom. The Rec Room offers a new queen sleeper sofa with box spring mattress. The Getaway is on a no hunt/ no shoot mountain so wildlife abounds. The deer and wild turkey love to stop and watch as guests relax by the fire pit or on the decks.

The Getaway is on 2.5 plus acres, secluded and has mountain views of Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee. Unlike may cabins near the top of mountain, the Getaway has plenty of level land for children/pets/family to walk around, run and play with no sudden drop offs. It is not in a gated community, nor do you have close neighbors, yet you do not feel totally isolated. The Benton MacKaye Trail, which connects to the Appalachian Trail, is also a short walk from the cabin. A mountain stream is at the foot of our mountain and run along the Benton MacKaye Trail. Downtown Blue Ridge, with its wonderful shops and antiquing, is about 6 minutes away and features Blue Grass bands performing on the square throughout the year, carriage rides and a Farmers’ Market on Saturdays. Downtown Ellijay is about 10 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you!! Very nice cabin! Perfect for a long weekend getaway. We enjoyed the hot tub and making a fire in the outside firepit. Roasted marshmallows-yum!! Played a lot of basketball. The kids really enjoyed the sports table in the downstairs rec room--especially the air hockey. We grilled out a lot and visited some good restaurants.

It is the perfect place to escape the real world

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin...in the rain. There is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy something and relax. Sandy is a tremendous host with plenty of information to keep the family entertained through your stay. Even in the rain, the family was able to sit on the porch and play cards, complete puzzles at the dining room table, and have some serious pool competitions in the rec room. I highly recommend this place.

Great Hurrication Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We evacuated from Hurricane Irma to this cabin. It has everything we need for a relaxing stay. Plenty of room inside and outside for our party of 8. We would love to come stay again in the future. Owners are very informative and helpful. There was even a birthday card waiting for me when we arrived.

Great Location for Extended Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Antler Ridge is a great location for our family to gather from several different cities for any event. In this case, it was to view the total solar eclipse. The cabin is roomy, sleeps up to eight, and has a great outdoor areas as well with large decks, a fire pit, and grill. The shade and mountain top breezes make it very pleasant even on very warm days. Inside is immaculate and very well furnished. We are actually neighbors of the owner and rented their cabin for space for our family. Al and Sandy are great friends, but I know from talking to their other guests over the years that they are very attentive to all their renters. Blue Ridge is a great vacation or getaway spot. There are lots of activities within short driving distance, including just enjoying the scenery of the North Georgia Mountains. No matter what the weather, it is paradise. We know, because we live here.

Are Florida heat getaway to a cooler planet

  • 5 of 5

The area was wonderful the weather quite different but very refreshing for us in Southwest Florida. We enjoyed the house quite immensely especially the screened-in Lanai to play cards late at night and most of all the outside fire pit where we laughed and also we cried but we made really good memories. I rated this at 5 because we would come back and stay there and also recommend.

Wonderful mountain vacation for all ages

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and and definitely recommend. The cabin is very clean and well maintained. We used all three bedrooms and everyone reported "sleeping like a rock" on comfortable beds. The hot tub was great. The pool table got a lot of use. Our favorite was sitting around the firepit at night sharing our day's adventures-tubing the Tocoa River and whitewater rafting were the hands-down favorites. The town of Blue Ridge is wonderful for wandering- Joe's Bar B Q is not to be missed. The cabin is centrally located to EVERYTHING. The initial trip up the mountain road can be a little daunting, but once you've done it you're good to go. Low gear and steady does it. Our Honda Accord, VW GTI, and Ford C-Max hybrid went up and down like mountain goats. Sandy, our host, was a pleasure to work with from first inquiry all the way through. Prompt responses, professional, accessible, and pleasant. We wil definitely be back.

Enjoyed it!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed this cabin a bunch! The owner is very nice & helpful also. This cabin has everything you need to enjoy the mountains with convenient access to both Blue Ridge & Ellijay. It was like being in a tree house & I can only imagine how beautiful it would be in the fall! It is well maintained with many nice amenities. The only things I'd improve on is some type of view of the big mountains in the distance & the gravel road up the hill requires a vehicle with some clearance & needs a bit of work in a few places(this is certainly not the fault of the owners of this property and didn't prohibit us from getting in & out). It was very clean with everything you need to have a fantastic trip to the mountains!
