Description
Not every Georgia mountain cabin rental looks like the elegant homes in “Southern Living” magazine, but Ambleside is that kind of place, exquisitely appointed yet roomy enough to accommodate 14 guests in comfort and style. Add magnificent mountain and river views from every window and fun things to do right on the property and nearby, and you have the makings of a magical vacation.

Named for a village in England’s Lake District where one of the original owners grew up, Ambleside rests atop a hillside in a secure, gated community eight miles from downtown Blue Ridge.  Overlooking the magnificent 6th "Barn Hole" fairway  of the top-rated Old Toccoa Farm golf course with the magnificent Toccoa River below, stop and listen, and you’ll hear the whoosh of golf balls and the whistle of the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway as it passes along the river. As a guest, you’ll have access to OTF golf course (at Member Guest Rates), the Toccoa River, fly fishing, kayaking and several beautiful hiking trails.

The cabin’s impressive exterior embraces Appalachian architecture, mixing poplar bark, cedar, rusty tin and reclaimed materials, strategically situated to accentuate the long-range views of the Cohutta Wilderness and fabulous, fiery sunsets. Inside, the spacious, professionally decorated home features soaring ceilings, shiplap walls, exposed beams and barn doors, with unique touches like a farmhouse sink, crystal doorknobs and a claw foot tub in the master bath on the main level.

Each of Ambleside’s five comfortable bedrooms has a 30” flat screen TV and its own en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. All 3 master bedrooms, each with a king bed, have deck or patio access, and the upstairs bedroom’s bath features a rain shower. The remaining two bedrooms are outfitted with a pair of queen beds, a pair of twin beds and bunk beds. There’s a queen sleeper sofa in the living room to accommodate your large family or extra guests.

In the kitchen, with its new stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and conveniences like an ice maker, coffeemaker, blender, you’ll find all you need to prepare everything from simple meals to feasts for a crowd. The dining table seats 10, and there’s room for 4-5 at the breakfast bar.

After a delicious dinner, you can unwind in the airy, spacious living room, with its stone gas fireplace, comfy sofa and love seat, and 55” flat screen TV (the cabin has eight TVs, all cable equipped), head down to the terrace level to the Hot Spring Spa hot-tub or Game Room to play ping-pong, foosball, board games or corn-hole. Enjoy the ultimate in outdoor living on the deck and covered porch, where there are plenty of places to sit, socialize and relax. There’s a gas grill, dining table, wood burning fireplace, 50” TV and a fire pit area, where you can make s’mores and gaze up at the night sky, glittering with stars.

Other amenities include Wifi, Sonos surround sound system, and washer/dryer. Still Ambleside’s greatest asset is its ambience: the peaceful, warm, and welcomed way you’ll feel while you arrive and will always remember, long after you leave.

Very big place for our big family with lots of beds and bathrooms! Awesome view, proximity to OTF golf course, cleanliness and available amenities like outdoor fireplace, fire pit, big outside deck, basement games, and others!

The home had ample space for our family of 9. We enjoyed the game room downstairs, fire pit, and large covered porch. The kitchen was spacious and convenient for cooking all of our meals, the beds were very comfortable and we really loved the decor! We were very comfortable all week!

This home had everything we were looking for with the bedroom/bath en suites, indoor/outdoor fireplaces, fire pit, etc. And we loved the style of the home. It looked like Chip and Jo Jo did the decorating!

The house and view of the mountains were amazing!!!! It was fun being on the golf course and seeing the guys drive by. There were 5 couples and it was just perfect for our weekend get away! I loved how when we arrived, there was music playing and every TV was on. We actually didn't watch much TV except for a couple of college football games because there was so much more to do! The kitchen was very well stocked!!!! We brought some cooking utensils of our own, but we certainly didn't need them. The bedrooms and bathrooms were so nice. Loved having the ping pong table downstairs. Everything was very thought through. We are already planning to return next fall! Overall, this trip was fantastic! We really enjoyed the town of Blue Ridge and Menier Orchards! We'll be back for sure!

We loved the spaciousness and beautiful decor and furnishings of the home. The golf course it sits on is beyond anything I have seen, beautiful, fragrant flowers and the sunsets are epic! There is nothing needed in this home, it is perfection! Outstanding company with attention to detail on all facets of the VR space. (I am in the industry). Amazing hospitality and professionalism!
