Some of our cabins are “pet friendly” and are so designated by the cabin’s owner. These cabins do not allow any dogs over 60 lbs overall, with certain cabins having a lesser weight limit (please inquire about those properties) and we do not allow more than 3 dogs per cabin. Any pets must be pre-registered. If a cabin is designated “pet friendly” there will be a $35 fee if a pre-registered pet occupies the property. If a pet is discovered not registered, or occupying a “non-pet friendly” property, the guest may be assessed a minimum of $100. Unfortunately, we cannot allow any cats at our properties. Please be considerate of non-pet friendly cabins, as many of our owners and guests have children with severe allergies who cannot be exposed to pet dander.
You must be 25 years or older to rent a cabin. The person who rents the cabin must be a member of the party coming and must remain the entire duration of the stay. There are no exceptions to this rule.
When you book your cabin, you will be provided with the directions to our office. On the day you check in, you will come to our office location. We will then give you the key and directions to your cabin. Most cabins are approximately 10 minutes from the office. If you plan to arrive after business hours or on a Sunday, you will be provided with alternate check in instructions in which you will pick up your key and directions from an “After Hours Check In Box” located at our office.
All that is necessary to bring is clothing and personal toiletries. Your cabin will be stocked with an initial supply of toilet paper, trash bags, dishwasher soap, and bath soap. All kitchens are fully stocked with utensils. However, it may be a good idea to bring or pick up paper towels, laundry detergent, and coffee filters as these are not always provided. There are a number of major food stores in the area, such as Ingles & Food Lion, and many good restaurants in the Fannin County area.
No, we are in the mountains. Roads can be steep, curvy, graveled, and not all are paved. Many of the roads leading to the cabins are gravel roads. The vast majority are easily accessible, however, with any normal car, SUV, or truck (unless stated on the cabin listing). Low profile vehicles or sports cars are not recommended for cabins with gravel roads. Only certain properties are available to bring a small trailer too, please inquire with agents. We have many cabins that do have paved access if needed.
Friendly note: Please keep in mind local opinions of what be would considered "gentle" or "not very steep" may be different that yours. We are transparent and honest with our guests in all aspects, but it is sometimes difficult to gauge what guests consider "steep" or "not steep" as guests opinions, experiences, and point of views differ greatly. Please do keep in mind when you visit our area, (Fannin County/Blue Ridge) you may experience various elevations from what are considered flat/gentle and extremely steep/curvy/narrow. Guests rarely report issues with access roads to our cabins as we are very upfront about each cabins access road and we list which cabins require 4x4 access very clearly.
We look forward to accomodating you soon!
Fireplaces are in use from October 1st to April 30th. Fireplaces cannot be used from May 1st to September 30th.
An initial supply of firewood is provided at cabins with wood-burning fireplaces, during the fall and winter months. After the initial supply is used, additional wood is the responsibility of the guest. Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside, unless the property is fitted with a fire ring. Cabins are very close to the woods, and building a fire outside of a designated area is very dangerous and is against the law. No firewood is provided during the spring and summer months of May through September.
You can purchase beer and wine at the local grocery stores and convenience stores. Several local restaurants also serve beer and wine. Blue Ridge is considered a dry county, and you cannot purchase liquor in this area. Ellijay, however, is 15 miles south of Blue Ridge and does sell liquor.
We are very particular about the cleanliness of our cabins and our hot tubs. The hot tubs are completely drained after every single rental. The filters are taken out and cleaned, and the hot tub is completely wiped down and cleaned with professional cleaners. The hot tub is then filled with fresh water and fresh chemicals.
Blue Ridge is a beautiful area with activities and adventures for all ages. You can simply relax and take in the breathtaking views and vistas, or you can partake in all of the action and adventure Blue Ridge has to offer. Take a nostalgic train ride into Tennessee on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, do some shopping in downtown Blue Ridge, catch a fish in one of our pristine streams or rivers, hike through the Cohutta Wilderness, take a lazy river float down the Toccoa River, battle the rapids while Whitewater Rafting, take a stroll through the woods on horseback, zip through the treetops on a Canopy tour, soar through the sky on a helicopter tour, sip some wine and listen to great live music at a local winery, enjoy a live production at the Blue Ridge Community Theater, or go boating, canoeing, or kayaking! There are endless opportunities for fun and adventure in Blue Ridge, and we would love to share it with you!
