6 EXTRAORDINARY VACATION RENTALS FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE FAMILY REUNION

Whether your family gets together every year or every few years, it’s always a good time to come together and celebrate your history and heritage. Reunions give the older generations time to sit together and reminisce and the younger generations and meet each other and develop lifelong friendships.

Blue Ridge, Georgia is the perfect location to plan a family reunion because there is something to entertain the entire family. Book a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway or plan a hike to Long Creek Falls along the Benton Mackaye Trail. Maybe a tractor ride and apple picking at Mercier Orchards is on the agenda or an exhilarating rafting trip on the Ocoee River will bond together long-lost family members. Either way, you need a base camp and we have the perfect cabins to accommodate your group!

SERENITY COVE

A unique cabin retreat built to become the backdrop for large families to gather and create lasting memories. If you’ve had your heart set on a North Georgia mountain family vacation but haven’t found a rental large enough for your big family, group of friends, or church retreats, Serenity Cove is the perfect cabin for you. With ample room for 16 guests, Serenity Cove is a magnificent private retreat that offers you all the amenities of a high-end resort, and so much more.

Situated high on a mountaintop and nestled in Necowa Cove on a cul-de-sac next to the National Forest, this spectacular cabin boasts breathtaking views of Lake Blue Ridge and extended mountain vistas that stretch into North Carolina and Tennessee. Named for the serene, peaceful, relaxed feeling that you’ll feel from the moment you enter its doors, Serenity Cove was built and designed for large family gatherings, a place to connect and make lasting memories with the ones you love.

Each of the seven bedrooms is named for something in nature—Fox Den, Forest Room, Bear Den and so on—and the theme is carried out in the bedspreads and wall art. There are two bedrooms on each of the three levels, each with unique custom bed frames, headboards and footboards housing a plush king bed. The seventh bedroom, on the lower level, features a pair of twin beds, and there’s a twin daybed in the upstairs open loft that also has a twin trundle.
