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.

Entire cabin is wood (no drywall) for a true rustic feel and downstairs 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.

About Doug & Jeanne Lindberg

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.

Doug & Jeanne Lindberg purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Doug & Jeanne Lindberg chose North Georgia Mountains

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.

What makes this cabin unique

Easy access to the cabin as well as down the driveway to park. Quiet and serene yet close to many activities, shops, local events, etc.

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!!

Cozy quaint retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Jeanne was the best! She was super quick to respond to all inquiries. She went above and beyond to ensure the hot tub was operating properly and never made us feel like a bother. She was wonderful to work with. We love be clean environment close to fun attractions. We'd recommend to others!

Sincere appreciation to Backyard Delights Hot Tub and Spas in Blairsville, for responding promptly Saturday morning to a hot tub service call. We really love return guests so next time you're ready for a visit to the beautiful North Georgia mountains, just let us know! Best regards, Jeanne and Doug

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Comfy, well equipped cabin. Everything we needed was there (except umbrellas!) the stairs going down to the "den" are steep; we used the outdoor path to the downstairs. The best TV is downstairs, so at night that may be where you want to hang out. Upstairs TVs are very small. Other than that, the place is great! Clean, comfortable and beautiful, inside and out.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kathy for the nice review. Sorry about the small TV's, honestly we never turned a TV on for the first 5-6 years we owned the cabin! We mainly put them in for renter convenience but equipped downstairs for rainy or snowy days with hundreds of DVDs and books and a 50" TV. We will certainly take your comments into consideration for increasing the viewing size upstairs. We've installing a new hot tub at the end of May or early June and soon to be roofing the outside deck downstairs for more covered seating. Spending time outside in the mountains is such a joy - void of pests and humidity. Please keep us in mind if you're up our way again. Warmest regards, Jeanne and Doug Lindberg

Very quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place to spend a few days in a nice area. Well equipped, spacious cabin - far enough off the main road to be quiet and dark at night, but close enough to be convenient to Blue Ridge, Ellijay, etc.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive review - so glad you enjoyed your time in the mountains. Would love to have you stay again if you're planning another trip to the area. We've got some new changes coming...a new hot tub arriving early this summer and additional covered outside area to be constructed for expanded outdoor living. We hope you'll think about a return visit. Warm regards, Doug and Jeanne

Beary Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great! The decorations were super fun, and the cabin itself was very homey.

There was an excellent selection of books, games and movies available for when you just wanted to relax. The game room was super fun.

We felt kinda like Goldilocks in this bear cabin. One bed was a little firm, One bed was a little soft, and the third was just right!

I would recommend this place to anybody! Hopefully we'll get a chance to come back and visit again!

A wonderful spring break

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 wonderful days with our teenage daughters at Fishing Bear Cabin. It was very well equipped (you don't have to go out and buy items that you won't use a lot of like spices and dish washing liquid) and the moment you step in to the cabin you felt at home. The drive up to the cabin was not bad at all and the driveway was easy to access. There are lovely hikes almost right on your doorstep which we all enjoyed. There is also a lovely walk down to the lake and a little chapel (the walk back up was fun too!). The idea of our trip was just to relax and this is what we did. There are plenty of games, movies and the wifi was excellent. We loved the little town of Blue Ridge and surrounding areas. The owners were very responsive through the whole process.The cabin is nicely decorated and my daughter challenged herself to count all the bears in the cabin. A wonderful spring break. We hope to be back. Thank you to Jeanne and Doug for sharing this cabin with us.

Great Cabin in a Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has it all! My fiance and I (and our fur baby) stayed for a long weekend and just enjoyed the weather, the porch (Which is where we stayed most of the time) and the town of Blue Ridge which is so close! Jeanne was the best! She answered all my emails so quickly. I highly recommend this cabin for anyone. And we will certainly be staying here again.

(My only suggestion for anyone is not to follow your GPS! I printed directions which I should have followed. Our GPS could not find the place. At night it was tricky.)
