Reasons to Rent a Four Bedroom Cabin!

You may be thinking….my family isn’t that big.  Why in the world would we need to rent a four bedroom luxury cabin when we go to visit the quaint town of Blue Ridge in the North Georgia Mountains?  Friend and family times spent in these large cabins make for memories that a hotel could never offer.  Below are some of the main reasons to consider this type of rental for your family vacation as well as listing some of the cabins that Georgia Mountain Cabin Rental has to offer!

Affordability is a huge reason for considering this option.  Multi family vacations are becoming extremely popular because people are able to split the cost and be able to enjoy a much nicer vacation rather than having to flip the whole bill alone.  Often several families may decide to stay at a hotel together and if you are in a nice place, you will easily pay $150 to $200 a night per family.

Consider High View Lodge.  An amazing four bedroom, 3 bath cabin that is $250 a night.  High view lodge 3That is the price for Memorial Day Weekend!  Imagine splitting the price among two to three families.  This is much more affordable than all of you getting your own hotel room.  Not to mention how  cozy to sit out by the beautiful outdoor fireplace while overlooking miles of gorgeous panoramic views. You don’t find many cabins that can offer 40 miles of views!

So we have established the fact that it is cheaper to rent a larger cabin and split the cost.  azure ridge 2How about memories that can be made with your family and friends?  Some people cringe at the thought of sharing a cabin with other people.  However, did you realize most of these cabins have a minimum of three bathrooms?  Your very own bedroom and bathroom and then share the common areas for all of you to enjoy together.  Spend time together playing pool, relaxing in the large hot tub, enjoying  board games and outdoor time.  Imagine all the stories that can be told around this campfire at our cabin called Azure Ridge?

The larger cabins also offer several nice amenities for a large crowd to enjoy such as a gaming room or large television with surround sound to enjoy late night movies together.  Look atBear Creek Lodge water this beauty named Bear Creek Lodge that actually has it’s very own putting greens in the basement!  Talk about fun games with friends and families.  Also, this awesome cabin was listed in “The Country’s Best Log Homes Magazine.” You will also enjoy the amazing creek that you can fish, wade and watch kids have the time of their life!

As if all these reasons aren’t enough to make you want to go ahead and make your reservation for a large family/friend getaway, there is tons of entertainment in the area that you all can enjoy.  The beautiful downtown Blue Ridge area is within minutes of most of our four bedroom cabins.  It is full of amazing shops and restaurants for all to enjoy.  One family can stay home and enjoy privacy at the cabin while the other heads to enjoy hiking and waterfalls in the area.  It is also the time of year for tubing and kayaking so get ready for some awesome adventures.

5 Benefits of Renting a Pet Friendly Cabin

Vacationing with your furry friend can bring many benefits to you and your family.  If you are like me, your dog is not “just a pet” but a valuable family member. Choosing to stay in a pet friendly cabin when you visit Blue Ridge in the North Georgia Mountains can bring many benefits to you, your pocketbook and your family.

  • The number one reason is you will save money.  Putting your precious pet in a kennel for a week can be extremely costly.  Not to mention the fact that your dog will most likely be in a cage most of the week with little roaming. 
  • Limit your stress level.  Let’s face it…unless your pet has stayed at the same place over and over, you are going to worry and ponder over if the kennel is taking proper care of them.  Once when I was on a beach vacation, we put our beloved Jack Russell, Rusty, in a kennel.  He was so nervous the entire time that he made himself sick and they had to call me several times to report to me how he was doing.  This is not something you want when you are trying to reduce stress on a mountain vacation!
  • dog at waterfallPets enjoy the mountains! They are a lot like us.  Who doesn’t enjoy all of the nature and God’s beauty that surrounds the mountains? Hiking on fabulous trails, exploring new waterfalls, and running through pastures of green grass are all a fantasy come true for most dogs. Blue Ridge is no doubt a dream come true for your outdoor loving dog.
  • Pets are beneficial to mental and physical health. Multiple studies have proven that pets actually help to release mood enhancing endorphins that can truly benefit us.  I know that when I am stressed out, having a hard time with something, my dog can sense my frustration.  He lays beside me, licks my face and let’s me know everything is going to be ok.  Who else feels this way?
  • dogs in waterFamily bonding is enhanced with a pet.  Dogs love being with us.  They are not meant to be strapped to a tree and never have interaction.  They love their owners and want to spend time with them.  Have family bonding time with your kids and pets by visiting the waterfalls of North Georgia together or go on some amazing hikes in Blue Ridge such as to the Swinging Bridge?  The downtown Blue Ridge area is extremely pet friendly.  Many of the stores will allow you to bring your pet inside their facility and often you will see bowls of water outside of their store.

Blue Ridge is truly a great place for a summer vacation to spoil your pets as well as yourself.  There is so much to do as well as relaxation time awaiting you.  Check out our amazing pet friendly cabins and plan your summer vacation now!  It is right around the corner.  You will be happy you chose Blue Ridge and your doggie will too!
