Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps
'Fishing Bear Cabin' is a quaint, cozy log cabin getaway nestled on top of a secluded mountain ridge in Cherry Lake, a private community with small lakes and hiking trails. Midway between Ellijay (the apple of Georgia) and Blue Ridge off of Hwy 515, Fishing Bear is only 75 minutes from Altanta as well as 90 minutes from Chattanooga, TN. Our location is convenient and easily accessible off of Hwy 515 yet very private and quiet. The cabin is kept clean and fresh. Come and enjoy the charming 'fishing bear' decor in our fully furnished and equipped log cabin. Sip your morning coffee on the deck and watch the deer walk by. You'll find the peace and quite of mountain solitue, all the comforts of home (cable TV, wireless internet) and more...
Upstairs features two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Both bedrooms are furnished with Queen size beds, TV and DVD player. All linens are supplied - even warm, flannel sheets for those cold winter nights. Snuggle up in front of the gas log fireplace - enjoy the beauty and comfort of a wood burning fireplace without the work and mess. Overstuffed seating makes this living area cozy and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped and many condiments are supplied. Relax on any of the three decks - swinging on the porch swings or rocking in the rockers. Entire cabin is wood (no drywall) for a true rustic feel and downstiars has been renovated in white pine. The bedroom downstairs is furnished with a King size log bed, dresser and TV with DVD/VCR combo. Attached with master bedroom is a second bathroom (shower only). The entertainment area has a wet bar with microwave and refrigerator, TV with DVD/VCR and air hockey/pool table. There is a deluxe futon and a twin sleeper sofa to provide additional sleeping areas-great for the kids to stay up and watch the many movies available. The entertainment area opens onto a large screened deck with another porch swing, a picnic table and rocking chair. Step down to a third deck where you'll find the gas grill and hot tub and additional seating.

Beautiful and relaxing getaway!
Great catch at Fishing Bear Cabin
Quite a Deal
We went white water rating at Eagle Creek, and we had a terrific guide -- TJ -- we'll definitely ask for him again next time as well. The apple orchards had the most amazing fresh apple cider and other goodies that were irresistible.
Someone mentioned that their water wasn't hot -- that wasn't our experience -- sure it took a minute or two for the water to get through the pipes, but it was plenty hot.
The GPS got us to the right road, but does not understand the actual location of the cabin. If you're from "the city" and aren't used to rural areas -- just be sure to take the map that the owners provide, or be sure you have the street number (there's a sign in front of the cabin with the street number and cabin name on it). The road to the cabin is curvy and in some spots really only wide enough for one car -- so just take it slow and enjoy the beautiful view along the way.
We had a visitor from Switzerland with us and she enjoyed every minute.
Well worth every penny (or more), and we hope to return!
From the Owner
“We fell in love with the cozy, comfort of this cabin. It is very easy to get to with a four lane highway right up to the turn to go up the mountain. Once you leave the highway it is like being in another world - quiet, peaceful. We have tried to make our cabin a home away from home and provide all the comforts of home.”
