Description
The excitement will begin as soon as you enter this private gated community and start seeing sneak peeks of the majestic views that await you. You'll soon be arriving at the pinnacle of comfort and beauty among Blue Ridge mountain cabin rentals.

Sitting near the crest of the mountaintop, Almost Everest reigns over big, multi-layered mountain views. This one-of-a-kind, European-styled log home features signature arches around the patio, porches and around the roofline. The charm continues inside, where you'll be welcomed by beautiful upscale furnishings that create an elegant lodge feel. With cathedral, open beam ceilings, custom furniture and special touches such as log mantles, longhorn antlers, and nature-inspired accents throughout, this cabin is truly the peak of relaxed luxury and comfort.

Awake, brew a pot of coffee and make pancakes for everyone in the sumptuous kitchen as the sun streams in through floor-to-ceiling windows in the great room. Have breakfast out on the wraparound deck surrounded by stellar views of mountaintops and the Cohutta National Forest.

Adventurers rejoice, for perched here at Almost Everest, you are close to all the best that the North Georgia Mountains has to offer. Head to any number of hiking trails nearby for an invigorating walk or climb, or don your swimsuits and make the quick drive to Lake Blue Ridge for a dip. You're also only 15 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge, so spend an afternoon scouting its boutiques and antique stores for treasures, or enjoy the thrill of a concert or festival near town.

On rainy days, bring the adventure indoors. Downstairs in the game room, deal a hand of poker or cards on the poker table, or spend the afternoon playing board games or Playstation3. In the evening, settle in for a movie or use the telescope for peaceful stargazing. On the main floor, lounge in the great room around the beautiful, floor-to-ceiling wood-burning fireplace with a glass of wine. You also can relax on the private hot tub deck in a large 6 person hot tub, taking in the mountain views and the beautiful starry night. Or relax on a rocking chair around the screened-in porch's outdoor fireplace, where a roaring fire will be the perfect complement to a chilly evening.

Each of the three bedrooms resides on its own floor, with two master suites, providing privacy for early risers and night owls alike. Make yourself at home in the king bedroom on the main floor, the king bedroom upstairs with its picture window and adjoining loft, or the queen bedroom downstairs. There's also a comfy pullout bed on the lower floor to accommodate more guests.

Here at Almost Everest you'll truly feel like you're on top of the world. A trip to this mountaintop oasis will take your spirits to new heights, with fun-filled days, adventure and happy memories.

We absolutely loved the wrap around balcony and view of the mountains. We enjoyed sitting outside on the well furnished balcony in the late afternoon. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cabin was beautiful and I believe nicest one we've stayed in. Thank You!

The view was amazing and the development was great. We loved the levels on the home and it was a perfect home and size for a family.
- Adam , Posted: 08/06/2020
The view was everything. Being able to wake up and just go outside and see the mountains and trees. It was beautiful.
- Ebony , Posted: 06/19/2020
We enjoyed the scenery and how everything we needed for the cabin was there in the cabin. We actually didn't have to bring some of the items we brought. Plus, there was plenty of seats for us to sit anywhere in the cabin. The porch and the view were the things we loved most.

INCREDIBLE! You will see it. Pictures can not show the complete serenity.

10/18 - The spaciousness was fantastic....and the view was second to none! Very clean and even though there were 6 adults it didn't feel crowded at all. Kitchen was very well stocked. Very pleased. Look forward to doing this again.

- Scott

11/18 - The view from the deck of Almost Everest was spectacular! The layout of the home was perfect for our needs, two couples, one in their early 70's, one in our early 50's. It would also be perfect for families with children. I have gone through Escape to Blue Ridge for the last several years. I have always had a great experience with the staff and the quality of the rentals. We are planning our next trip to the Blue Ridge area.

- Melanie Y.
01/15- Gorgeous view; quiet and somewhat isolated from other cabins; beautiful cabin
- Donald
12/14- Loved the living room and porch.
- Bruce
07/16- Mountain view. Even though we came in warm weather and could not experience the fire places, did not miss the snow travel. Wonderful place to escape!
- William
11/16- The layout of the home with bedrooms all on different levels was very nice. The expansive deck was also very nice, as was the layout of the kitchen and the appliances. Escape to Blue Ridge seems to be a well run operation. Overall, it has been a pleasant experience working with the reservations folks and other staff.
- Chris
11/14- The spacious room,comfort...beautiful view! Beautiful area, great mountain views, clean property!

- Sherry
07/15- WE love the location and the home. I'm sure will be staying there again.
- Faye
12/16- Our family had a wonderful Christmas vacation at your cabin. The accommodations were excellent and the views were spectacular. The "Almost Everest" name is appropriate. We had everything that we needed in the cabin to feel right at home. We especially enjoyed the indoor & outdoor wood burning fireplaces. The location was perfect as you had that secluded feeling but you were close to the shops & restaurants in Blue Ridge. We are definitely considering a return trip next year. The staff was very professional, friendly, & answered all of our questions. The best staff that I have worked with for a vacation rental.

10/15- Beautiful cabin with plenty of room and excellent views. The staff is wonderful and very responsive to any questions I had.
- George
04/16- The cabin is an extremely beautiful place. The view from the deck is incredible. Accessing the cabin from the directions given was very helpful because my GPS didn't have accurate info. The only hiccup was when the access code to the cabin stopped working one day before my departure but was resolved quickly by the staff named Karen. Thank you.
- Herman
11/15- The view! The cabin was the cleanest we have stayed in over the years. The location was great - out but close enough to sights. It was a quiet neighborhood - best for relaxing. 
- Donald
11/16- Gorgeous views and cabin is beautiful. We do not want to leave :(
- Keith
08/16- The view was wonderful. At night, the stars and the moon were so bright! I love the huge bath tub in the master bath. I wished it was cooler so we could use the fireplace. Brand new grill worked great. Lots of room and very clean. We did not even use the downstairs!
- Kathy
11/14- View was great. Attractive cabin with nice layout and attention to details.

10/15- Loved the view, the layout of the home, the hot tub and the privacy. We LOVED our experience and plan to visit again in the very near future with our children.
- Leslie
09/14- The home was everything we expected it to be. This was my family first time staying in a cabin and they LOVE it. From the furniture to the cleanest was just wonderful. The third level was really nice, altho we didn't spend much time down there except to sleep. The top floor was my favorite (my sleep area) the bedroom was hugh. Because we all are TV people it would have been nice to have a TV in each bedroom as well. The view was just to die for and we will always remember ALMOST EVEREST LODGE because we will be back in the future
- Linda
07/15- Location was great,view from the cabin was wonderful.

- Mary Lynn
01/17- This is a great cabin. Secluded. Nicely appointed. Great views. Good for kids. Would definitely stay here again. We strayed from your company once and it didn't work out. We'll definitely use you again.
- Marcel
06/15- Beautiful well-built log home with exceptional layout and view. Decks designed for all kinds of weather. Quiet, sound-proof rooms. House obviously designed with a lot of thought and understanding. Hot tub out of the way where it cannot be heard from rest of house (we've been in cabins with other companies where the hot tub was annoyingly noisy as it cycled). We will be back!
- Susan
05/16- Beautifully decorated home. Excellent view. Deck layouts good for all kinds of weather.
- Susan

08/15- The view!! Also loved the stacked stone fireplaces, the porch and the kitchen. Very impressed with your company. We had a little hiccough with the key. They called back immediately. This is the second time we have used you to rent a cabin.
- Rachel
02/15- The breathtaking views were even more spectacular than expected. Also it was very convenient having private bathrooms for each bedroom. The cabin was roomy, clean, and very comfortable. Outdoor living areas were beautiful, and we would like to visit again when the temps are much warmer. Great visit and great cabin for a family retreat. Very impressed with the caring staff. All our questions were answered promptly and all issues were resolved in a timely manner. Maybe it was in the correspondence and I just missed it, but did not realize our cabin door code would not work until promptly at 3 p.m. We arrived only 15 minutes early due to a Winter Storm Warning issued by the Nat'l weather service and the door code did not work. However, we will definitely select Escape to Blue Ridge for all future reservations. Great visit!
- Linda
10/16- The views were amazing and we particularly enjoyed the outside fireplace. Overall, it was a great weekend and we will definitely rent from EBR next year.
- Susan
08/15- The views from the home were great; the size was perfect for our family of four; the home was clean and well-kept. Always excellent; the items in need of attention are minor, but given your company's attention to detail, I knew you would want to know this; the only other minor issue is that the description of the cabin was "in a gated community", but the gate only closed from 7pm to 7am; again, not a big problem, but I thought that this detail should be disclosed in the description. EBR is a great company; I continue to be a "walking advertisement" for EBR, here in Louisiana; I appreciate the excellent cabins, locations, and responsiveness to questions/emails. Thanks for another wonderful vacation!!!!
- Tami
The house as a whole is great; great view it just needs some upkeep/maintenance, especially with what you are charging to rent it. I know that we paid a cleaning deposit but really felt that you probably should be paying us as we had to carry water to clean the screened porch so we could sit out and have a fire. Examples are: the porches have not been cleaned in quite a while. The porch with the outdoor fireplace had so much pollen that we attempted to clean it; however, the water facet outside does not work, the rocking chairs are falling apart, the casual table on the deck was barely put together, the chair cushions are nasty, the area where the grill is at is very nasty. The yard is being overtaken by weeds and dead shrubs. There were no cocktail glasses in the house. We have rented with you previously and the previous cabin was spotless and in perfect condition.
- Terry L.
04/16- It was warm and cozy. The furniture and decor made it feel like we were at home instead of in a vacation home. The kitchen was a great size; we had three people cooking and we all had enough space to move around.
- Valencia
01/17- The cabin was so cozy, the decor was very nice, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was fully stocked. All the comforts of home with a beautiful view. Loved the cabin and the view, had a great time! Very nice staff, easy to check in. Everything went smoothly and was perfect.
- Rick and Vickie
11/15- Location is awesome, plenty of room and division of suites. The decor and cabin are top notch! Super cool place. Excellent experience and would highly recommend everything!
- Stephen
10/17- The interior of this home was impressive. We all enjoyed the view. This was the second time I have used your company in scheduling our trip to the mountains. Your employees have always been very helpful and cordial. I will definitely use this company for our future trips.
- Ann
11/15- It was very clean and very well equipped in the kitchen. I loved the Neutrogena in the bathrooms that was totally unexpected. The washer and dryer were awesome. We had a wonderful time. Next trip we will need a cabin that sleeps 10 or we would be coming back to this one.

05/15- Master bedroom on first floor and company always helpful with a great attitude

01/19 - Cabin decorated beautifully.
- Edmond
11/16- The view was exceptional; the beds were very comfortable, and the towels were more than adequate. It was an added bonus to have shampoo, body lotion, and shower gel supplied, also. The showers were wonderful, all being walk-in. Plenty of TV's were provided to keep everybody happy. The kitchen was well equipped. The provided wood pile outside was a lovely plus!!! Your company is very well-organized and works to meet the needs of its customers with expediency. We would love to come back if we don't end up purchasing our own cabin in the future! Thank you.
- Mary T.
04/17- The view and location are amazing. Beautiful home with so many special details and extremely well-kept. I have used other property management companies and none of their properties compare to these.
- Beth
08/17- Gorgeous view and house! Loved everything! The company is well run and thorough!
- Sterling

07/18 - The house was in excellent condition and all of the items you provide (like the towels) were of very high quality. We also enjoyed the view and the secluded location. This is our 2nd rental from you and we will be back. We have tried 2 other rental services in Blue Ridge and yours is the best.
