If you dream of a perfect ‘cottagey’ home nestled privately among the hardwoods, peeking out over spectacular North Georgia mountain views, then this is the cabin for you.  Once you arrive, this cabin, which sits on 2-1/2 acres, will actually rise “Above Expectations” to fulfill your most charming mountain getaway experience.  Even the drive to Above Expectations’ peaceful and secluded setting is idyllic, winding along and meandering by scenic pastures and old farm houses with weathered log fences.

Relax and reconnect with some of your closest friends or your family in this three-bedroom home featuring a red tin roof and welcoming front porch.  The photography enthusiast will appreciate this cabin as it is also intimately connected to nature and offers three wonderful private decks to soak in the views.  Romantic moments or family reminiscing are just a few sways away as several rocking chairs grace the outdoor areas.

Inside, this sweet home is unexpectedly high-end with friendly decor and a plush leather sectional in front of a cozy rock fireplace.  Just steps away is a dining table for eight and an open kitchen for everyone to enjoy while preparing meals.  Above Expectations is stocked with plenty of dishes and cookware and even offers a convenient kitchen breakfast bar.

Movies, games and Wii fun abound in the terrace level and this is the only cabin in our collection that offers a bumper pool table.  Try your hand and poker face at the combination card and poker table on a soothing rainy day.  The accommodations include choice of three bedrooms featuring either a king size bed in the upstairs master bedroom with a private bath and balcony to enjoy, a main floor bedroom offering a queen size bed and adjoining bathroom or the terrace level bedroom offering two twins.

The best of the Blue Ridge area is just outside the door so you can start enjoying this cabin’s gorgeous property leading to a day of wonderful mountain exploration.  Begin your evening with a soak in the hot tub or gather around the fire pit for a good old fashioned marshmallow roast.  End your day with stargazing and a toast to the realization of a mountain cabin experience that has risen above your expectations.

We lucked out with amazing weather, so that we were out & about every day of our trip, but the cabin felt like we could have just stayed in & enjoyed ourselves as well. Property was great, we enjoyed the hot tub & the fireplace as well as the fire pit outside. The boys set out some bags outside & played a lot of games! This was a wonderful escape from dreary/cold Wisconsin. The drive in was beautiful, the cabin was ready to go, easy to just unpack & start the vacation. Loved being away from the noise & it was just so peaceful & calm.

The hot tub was spacious and private. The cabin location is pretty private with nice views from upstairs. There's lots of room in cabin, it was clean and toiletries provided, the grill was in great condition, the gift provided was nice, and recommendations for hikes were nice too. We also enjoyed the fire TV. We love the company's organized site, lots of options, and discount offered to returning customers.

Very secluded and quiet. Nicely furnished. In past visits, we had cabins in Blue Ridge. We liked the location of Morganton for accessibility to other towns. We really enjoyed the tin roof when it rained.

We celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and a family elopement... and the kitchen was fantastic for all that cooking. Loved the view as well as that it was so cozy. It was about midway driving distance for our far-flung family, and in this era of social distancing, it was a fantastic option.

The deck, the decor. The cabin is gorgeous.
- Rhonda , Posted: 07/28/2020
It was comfortable and well equipped. Quiet area and somewhat central to a lot of the amenities in the region. Really enjoyed sitting on the porch of the master bedroom - beautiful and relaxing view. The red male cardinal that came to visit all day and fell in love with the mirrors in our car was a definite plus. We (especially granddaughters) enjoyed watching him everyday!!
- Belen C. , Posted: 07/24/2020

- Susan , Posted: 10/14/2019
The Cabin was extremely clean. Furnishings was so nice. We've stayed at several cabins in Blue Ridge but none with all the little extra's (Goodies with cooler),that were provided by Escape to Blue Ridge. I can't tell you enough how much we appreciate your company. We had took a wrong turn and was stuck in the clay. Called the company and Felicia came out to help us. She went so far out of the way to help us. She called the maintenance man to pull us out many thanks to him also!!!! My handicapped mom was really upset and tired. Felicia even helped me get my mom in the cabin and make sure we were settled. God Bless everyone at Escape to Blue Ridge for making it a wonderful experience for my mom and our family. Thanks so much!

09/16- The cabin is larger than expected. It doesn't feel like there are other cabins right beside you. The upstairs bedroom is great with an awesome view. The main level also has a wonderful view. I didn't think to check when I booked, but it was nice to have a dishwasher and washer/dryer. Certain items that I always forget were provided such as garbage bags and dish soap This cabin was perfect for our relaxing weekend! I couldn't ask for a better experience. I never had a problem contacting someone if I had questions or concerns. They were very attentive, helpful, and professional. Needless to say, I will be booking with this company again.

10/15- The 3 of us who stayed there for 3 days loved everything about the cabin. The jacuzzi was nice for those of us who rarely use one. The wood in the cabin and the decorations were very nice. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked of necessities. We were very pleased with the people who took our reservations and payments and sent us directions and instructions. No complaints whatsoever.
- Terrie
The cabin is impressive and in good condition. The mountain views are spectacular. However, the hot tub pumps DO NOT work due to faulty switches. We briefly got 1 pump to work for a few minutes but could not get it to come back on. We would NOT lease this cabin again nor recommend it to anyone. The faulty pump switches appear to be a problem that did not occur recently.
- James A.
12/15- The home was gorgeous. The views were breathtaking. The home was beautifully decorated and very well kept and equipped. I wish we had more time to enjoy it. Absolutely loved it! Everything was handled very professionally. Communication was excellent.

02/17- Our favorite feature of the cabin was the view! We also loved the fireplace, the fresh mountain smell and the fact that there were enough bathrooms (five ladies)! We can't wait to come back. I have enjoyed this experience from beginning to end. Beginning with choosing the cabin online, making the reservation with your staff, emails detailing everything we needed to know, to our arrival where we felt welcomed with lights on and music playing. Rachel and Kiwi have done a great job with the cleaning of the cabin, and making us feel like we're coming home.

3/18 - The cabin is cozy and comfortable. We immediately felt right at home. We enjoyed it so much, we couldn’t wait to finish sightseeing and return to the cabin. We truly appreciate the fact that you welcomed our dogs. They are an important part of our family. Watching them play in the woods without leashes brought us much joy! They were in heaven and so were we! Very sad to leave this place that is truly “Above Expectations!” Outstanding customer service! Everyone was very kind and thoughtful.

- Robert

07/18 - Beautiful views, easy to get to. Close to town and fun things to do. The cabin felt like home. Loved the gate on the front entrance keeping our fur child safe. Downstairs was awesome for our grandson with lots of family games to spend time together. Very accommodating. Great communication.
