activities and attractions in Blue Ridge Georgia

There are an amazing variety and number of activities and attractions near the cabin in the Blue Ridge Area.  Following is just a short sample but I encourage all interested parties to spend sometime exploring what the area has to offer.

Without getting in your car you can access Lake Blue Ridge and the Aska Trail System.  The Tocoa River is a short drive away and great for a fun afternoon of floating in a tube or fly fishing.

Hiking galore, including the Appalachian and the Benton MacKaye trails

Fishing, boating, Jet Skiing, tubing, whitewater rafting--Lake Blue Ridge, Toccoa River, Ocoee River

Horseback riding, golf, mountain biking, gem and gold panning

Antiquing--Blue Ridge has been called the antique capital of GA, and Ellijay, with its charming roundabout (instead of the typical courthouse square), has its share, too, and is only a 30 minute drive from the cabin

Swan Drive-In Theater, one of the few remaining today, operating since 1955

Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, on which you can take a narrated ride from Blue Ridge to the twin cities of McKaysville GA and Copperhill TN and stand with one foot in GA and one in TN--marked with a big blue line painted through the IGA Grocery parking lot.  Also look for special holiday rides for Easter and Christmas!

Apple businesses where you can view the process from orchard to grocery bag, tour the facilities, shop for apple-themed goods and goodies, and try one of the area's delights: the fried pie! Ellijay is known as the apple capital of GA

Hunting for deer, turkey and other wildlfe is permitted at the nearby WMA

Wonderful local restaurants--just a few: the Toccoa Riverside, where on weekend nights a duet of two elderly, overall-clad bluegrass pickers entertain; the Pink Pig in Cherry Log, President Jimmy Carter's favorite BBQ joint; Colonel Poole's BBQ in Ellijay, where the hillside is decorated with a giant outline of a pig compiled of hundreds of plywood pigs naming past patrons (some celebrities)

Festivals throughout the year: for example, Apple Festival, Sorghum Festival, Prater's Mill Festival, GA Mountain Fair (demonstrations of old-timey mountain practices), Rhododendron Festival, Bluegrass Festival, Dahlonega's Gold Rush Days

Numerous state parks, national parks, and national forests, each with its own amenities, activities, and gorgeous scenery

Marked scenic drives/highways, almost all with scenic pull-overs and overlooks, especially important during our gorgeous autumn leaf season

Countless waterfalls, one of which (Amicalola) is the tallest cascading falls east of the Mississippi; in the cabin are pamphlets with descriptions and directions to 11 falls in the area--all of which we've hiked to--only a couple are strenous treks

A short drive from the cabin is the longest suspension bridge east of the Mississippi, a very short and easy hike brings you to where it crosses the Toccoa River

A little further away is Tallulah Falls and Gorge, the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi.

Many other sights are within a short drive, such as Brasstown Bald, the highest point in GA, Dahlonega's Gold Museum, and the Alpine town of Helen, Amicalola Falls State Park, Ocoee Whitewater Area, Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, Cooper Creek Recreation Area, Cohutta Wilderness, Dahlonega, Vogel State Park, Unicoi State Park, Big Frog Wildelife Area, Nantahala National Forest and Whitewater Area, Fort Mountain, Chattanooga, Helen, Great Smoky Mountains National Park

traveler reviews for this blue ridge house rental

Best deal in the Mountains

Review submitted: July 22, 2014   Date of arrival: July 10, 2014

I have to admit that I was a little worried before arriving because of the low cost but the cabin exceeded all expectations. It was beautifully furnished and decorated, very clean, and fully equipped. Everyone had plenty of room and privacy. We loved the screened porch in the evenings. The property is on a hill so there's no flat land for a good family football game, but who cares! We were away tubing, horseback riding and at the beach which were all nearby. Great time!

Wonderful time in Blue Ridge

Review submitted: August 1, 2013   Date of arrival: July 26, 2013

We had a wonderful time in Blue Ridge. The house is beautiful and accommodations are perfect. We enjoyed fishing, hiking, boating, canoeing and so much more. The town of Blue Ridge is full of things to do during all seasons of the year as we have visited several times. This particular house is perfect for large families to retreat away and enjoy time together. Always a good time and we look forward to coming again soon!

Can't wait to go again!

Review submitted: October 28, 2012   Date of arrival: October 12, 2012

From the moment we walked in, we said WOW!

This is a gorgeously decorated cabin that feels more like a high end bed & breakfast in the mountains. You can tell that a lot of thought has been given to the interior with the comfortable leather couches, the antique furniture, and the classy cabin touches everywhere.

The owner has thought of everything! From the well-stocked kitchen, to the bathroom accessories (soap, shampoo, hair dryer), binders in the entryway that offer information on tons of fun stuff to do in the area. These folks care and WANT you to have an awesome time. :)

We stayed at the cabin Friday - Sunday and went out on some adventures, but I can't wait to come back again and stay at the cabin the whole weekend. It is a nice place to relax with a book on the deck, curl up on a couch and watch a movie, or play boardgames in the game room.

We had a fantastic time and can't wait to go again!
