About the Owner

We have loved the mountains and decided to buy in the Blue Ridge area because of all it has to offer - easy access, shops, hiking, tubing, rafting, antiquing, vineyards and wine tastings, festivals and so much more.

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful cabin with us. It was perfect and perfect location. Just loved Cherry Log Mountain area too. Loved all your decor, I have lots of bear stuff here at home too and hoping one day maybe will have a cabin of our own to decorate it with. So quiet and peaceful there. We couldn't have asked for anything more and weather was absolutely beautiful too. Thanks again and hope can return soon. Have a great week!!

North GA's best cabin to stay in.

  • 5 of 5

This was a 6 day stay, 3 days with Mom, Dad, daughter and grandson. When Jeanne stated that the cabin was fully equipped, she meant every word. We totally enjoyed the play room, and hot tub. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything needed and more. The rooms had very comfy beds, and plenty of space to hang clothes and put other clothes away and each led out to decks. The weather was fantastic. My 6 year old grandson and his Papa, went "bear hunting", with sticks, in hand, down the mountain, behind the cabin. Funny watching Papa, being helped back up. Lane would run up, then roll down, to help his papa, then help him back up a little more. We really enjoyed the Gem mining and the Amish shop, that was just up the road. We went into Blue Ridge and walked around. Three Sisters Fudge shop has the creamiest fudge ever. Joe's BBQ had the largest baked potatoes I have ever seen. We didn't do the Train, as to the length of time, but enjoyed the shops. Enjoyed the rest of the afternoon, at the cabin. Day two trip was into Ellijay and around, Amicalola falls were beautiful, Dahlonega was a nice town, with more neat shops, more Gem mining. The girls went to Cartecay Vineyards for some wine testing, this was very special. The Family left and then Chuck and I headed out for a "day of nothing being planned". The first excitement was watching a herd of deer crossing the road and playing, in the woods, as we headed down the mountain, from the cabin. we just took back roads, for the next few days and enjoyed relaxing in the cabin. Jeanne and Doug, your cabin was extremely clean and set up better then any cabin we have ever stayed in. The warm natural feeling, of your decor, was a special touch. We had the most enjoyable vacation and hated to leave. Thanks so much for allowing us to use your home and have a restful and relaxing, much needed vacation. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for all the wonderful remarks and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Our kids were young when we bought the cabin and spent hours upon hours playing outside, building, rolling, falling, you name it. As young adults they still love "the cabin" just as much. Our son honeymooned there in fact. We love hearing of visits enjoyed making memories with loved ones. We look forward to your return! Peace to you this holiday season. Jeanne and Doug

Lovely cabin!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a quiet weekend get-away and Fishing Bear was just what we needed!

The cabin is easy to get to, very comfortable, and had everything we needed. Fishing Bear has plenty of space to lounge around, much more than just the two of us needed. With two separate living spaces, it would be a very nice place to take a family with teens, or a group of friends who want to vacation together without spending every single second together.

My only complaint is the staircase. Those are some very steep, narrow stairs! After a strenuous hike Saturday, we could barely walk up and down those awful stairs on Sunday :)

So, if you're not too lazy for some steep stairs, this cabin is ideal. I would recommend staying at Fishing Bear to anyone!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay but we're sorry you struggled with the stairs. Our rental information does include a disclaimer about the stairs, mainly in the event of small children, however in 12+ years renting we've been very fortunate as the only complaint thus far was from my father! His issue was actually the fact his size 14 feet (he's big man) struggled with the depth of the steps so we had the staircase rebuilt to include open steps allowing him to get solid footing! The queen beds upstairs make an easier stay in the event the steps are too much. I do agree, after hiking all day, soaking in the hot tub is a better place to be! Again, thank you for renting with us and for your positive review of our cabin.

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.
