To Me







Today at 11:32 AM













Good Morning,







Just returned last night from your cabin and wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed being there. It is your own little piece of heaven on earth and I needed the trip so much. I lost my husband ( John ) back in March and with the upcoming holidays I just needed some “retreat” time to get ready to deal with some more “firsts” in my life. I took a friend with me and we just enjoyed being there so much.







I’ve been to a lot of cabins but never one that felt so much like home.. Thank you for allowing others to share your “home”.







I will be going back, I’m sure..

Great catch at Fishing Bear Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Our arrival at night did not give us much chance to enjoy the outside of the cabin, but after our trip up Cherry Mt. we were glad to find that the cabin was even better than we had hoped. For such a reasonable cost, the cabin was perfect. We lit the gas fireplace right away and it warmed the living and upstairs area perfectly. All of the bedrooms had TVs which made everyone happy..although we did not use them much. Just too much to see and do. Apple festivaling and train rides were great, but we took one day just to stay close and enjoy the cabin and surrounding area. The view was perfect for Fall, the walks invigorating, neighbors were friendly and everyone had a dog or two. Ralph was able to golf every day and said the course was perfect. Finding the chapel in the woods made our exploring even better. A fully equipped kitchen with everything we needed was convenient and we did not have to go out for every meal. The rustic decor was great, beds were comfortable, lots of closets and storage space. Two porches with picnic tables to enjoy the fantastic view made this a perfect escape to the mountains. The hot tub was available, but the nights were a little cool for us to try it..maybe next time, and we definitely want a next time and soon. The pool table downstairs and games would have been great for a rainy afternoon, but the weather so perfect we just didn't have to time to enjoy all the amenities.

Quite a Deal

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was absolutely breathtaking -- and so well stocked, the owners have thought of everything. There was something to look at in every corner. A great cabin to come back to after enjoying the area, or a great cabin to lock yourself away in.

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!

Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
We had the most peaceful weekend at the Fishing Bear Cabin. We spent most of our time on the screened in porch watching the deer play in the woods. The cabin was clean and cozy and stocked with everything except food. Tons of great movies. We could definitely stay here again.

Very nice cabin!! Great location and easy to get to. Driveway is not a monster to get in and out. Nice big trees all around the cabin. It was nice having a regular porch and a screen porch.

Need a Place to "Check Out" for a While...

then this is the spot for you! Mercifully, my phone didn't work the entire week we spent on Cherry Log Mountain, but, guess what did work? The hot tub, the WiFi, the DVD players and every single rocking chair in the place!!

You can't find a more well-equipped residence (note I said residence - not rental) than this one! Everything you ever thought you needed is available and intuitively placed for your convenience! The pictures don't do it justice.

We had a bit of an issue with the air conditioner upon arrival and the owners (remotely from Florida) still managed to get it repaired (on a holiday no less) so customer service was tops!

The locals are friendly and quick to point a vacationer to the best local spots. We hit up Blue Jeans Pizza, Huck's General Store and Mini-Golf, The Feed & Seed (live baby farm animals - what's not to love?) all in Blue Ridge, Toccoa Valley Campground Tubing and the New Orleans Bistro for a blues benefit and dinner! Fishing Bear is also close to Vogel State Park's nice lake beach and the Tennessee Aquarium in case you're still in need of entertainment.

It's a fantastic place to recharge and reconnect with your family. Hope your family has as much fun there as mine did! Have a great time!

Peacefully,
Tammy

P.S. Watch out for the funny flying squirrel that lives in the metal bear birdhouse on the top porch!! Watch, too, for the entertainingly bold raccoon that seems to not be bothered by late night music and hot tubing!!
