Our Experience in a Riverfront Blue Ridge GA Cabin
We recently had the opportunity to stay in a beautiful riverfront Blue Ridge GA cabin. We’ve only ever stayed on the river one other time during all of our visits to North Georgia. And there’s just something about the sound of the river flowing by that is so incredibly peaceful. The cabin that we stayed in was called Big River. Check out this description from Escape to Blue Ridge for what you can find at this gorgeous rental.
If you are looking for a true escape from reality and the hustle and bustle of your daily life, then look no further than the newly renovated Big River!
Tucked away at the end of a paved road, at the convergence of 2 branches of the mighty Fightingtown Creek, you will hear nothing but Mother Nature’s soundtrack of rushing water from every location on this magnificent property.
Inside, this beautifully decorated cabin offers plenty of space for your guests to gather together, as well as to enjoy relaxing in privacy. Four spacious bedrooms have king size beds. The master suite on the main level features a comfortable seating area around a gas log fireplace, a wet bar, wall mounted Smart TV, a private bath with a walk-in shower & soaking tub. It even offers deck access so you can enjoy the view and sounds of the Creek during your morning coffee!
The second master suite is on the upper level of this A-frame home, and also features a sitting area with a TV. A bathroom with a walk-in shower is shared with the third bedroom, also located on the upper level. This bedroom has twin bunk beds and plenty of room for children to lounge and play. The fourth bedroom, which is accessible on the lower level, has deck accessibility, additional seating, a Smart TV, and a private bath with walk-in shower. The fifth bedroom suite is nestled amongst the trees, in a separate fisherman’s cabin with its own bathroom, and includes a sitting area and deck to sit and commune with nature while you enjoy the Creek vista.
When everyone gathers together indoors for meal time, the main level dining room has a large table that will fit all of your guests. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets and pantry, and quartz countertops.
The main level family room is designed for comfort, with a leather sofa and two leather lounging chairs, set around a stone gas fireplace with a Smart TV. The downstairs family room boasts a wet bar, a 70” Smart TV, and a multi-sectional sofa for your guests to gather for movie night.
The outdoor amenities cannot be duplicated! The main level screened porch includes a designated rocking chair area overlooking the Creek, a hanging queen size bed swing, and plenty of outdoor seating around the 30 ft stacked stone fireplace with gas logs & wall mounted heaters. There is also a dining area for you and your guests, and a gas grill. The lower level deck has a seating area, hanging swing and also houses the relaxing & private 8 person hot tub.
Besides relaxation, Big River is prepared to optimize the fun factor. The separate outdoor Creekfront entertainment pavilion is equipped to make any party a huge success. This spacious area includes a large wood-burning fireplace with a mounted Smart TV, comfortable seating to watch the game, bar, hanging swing and even an outdoor kitchen with a grill, burner, refrigerator and Traeger smoker! Adjacent to the pavilion is a magnificent stone firepit with Adirondack seating and Creek access. Additionally, there is a small swing set and a fenced-in play area for the kids to play the day away, and a large patio area for relaxing by the Creek or enjoying a game of corn hole. Lastly, a small, sandy Creekside beach serves as an ideal spot to fish for trout, sunbathe or just listen to the soothing sounds of the rushing water.
And after visiting, we can attest to this being true! Even though my kids are slightly older than the usual age to enjoy a swing set, they had such a great time! I’m not sure if those swings were ever NOT in use when we were home. We waded in the river and watched for fish. And we had a fire in the beautiful fire pit nearly every night! Snuggling with my kiddos by the riverside while roasting marshmallows is a memory I won’t soon forget.
What are you waiting for?
Take the trip! Your kids aren’t getting any younger. In fact, one of our five kids is in college now. And this was the first Fall trip that he wasn’t able to join us. And every two years after this, one of our kids will graduate and start their own lives. So I’m going to roast every marshmallow, watch every “show” on the swing set, marvel at every spider, and snuggle under blankets watching every movie I can. A Blue Ridge GA cabin is the perfect place to make those memories that last a lifetime.
