About Big River Lodge
Resting on the Toccoa River in the Aska Adventure Area, Big River Lodge is big in so many ways: Big in beauty, nature, serenity, fun, relaxation and the big, soothing sounds of the river it sits on. With almost 200 feet of riverfront, the rushing water will bring peace to your soul day or night.
This idyllic Blue Ridge cabin rental features beautiful rustic decor in nature's palette, hickory-trimmed cabinetry, tongue and groove paneling, high-end furniture and charming accent pieces like a canoe-shaped bookshelf and log mantle over the fireplace in the great room. On top of all that, incredible vistas surround you on all sides.
Have breakfast at the high table in the massive great room overlooking the river while you map out your activities for the day—So many to choose from! The Toccoa River is home to North Georgia's finest trout fishing, and made for tubing, rafting, kayaking or canoeing. When not on the river, you can also hike the many trails nearby and discover their hidden waterfalls.
If you're simply looking for a little R & R, take your pick of places to take in the peaceful river views before you, from the rockers on the upper deck to the red Adirondack chairs on the lower porch or on the open terrace. Sit back with a cold drink and a magazine while watching the sky change colors.
In the evening, grill your fresh catch and have dinner in the covered pavilion just steps away from the river, or serve everyone upstairs on the upper deck. Either way, you'll be treated to water views and great company with your meal. Relax in the spacious hot tub on the lower deck after a fun-filled day, or enjoy the warmth of the pavilion's wood-burning fireplace on cooler nights.
Choose a DVD, make some popcorn and curl up on the sofa to watch a movie on the great room's giant screen, or hang out in the game room downstairs, playing pinball, arcade games or pool. Get a little team competition going with a game of Scrabble, checkers, dominoes or bingo.
After an invigorating day out in the fresh air and cool water, snuggle up in one of the lodge's three bedrooms. Choose from the huge king master bedroom suite with its own master bath and gorgeous hickory furniture, or one of the two queen bedrooms on the upper level, all of which are adorned with high-end rustic furniture. There are also two pullout sofas, great for the kids or extra guests.
Big River Lodge is nirvana for water lovers. Get ready for fun and adventure when you're here — big days and nights await you.

10/18 - Beautifully decorated, large cabin right on the river .Everything was perfect. Well run company.
06/18 - The cabin is in a perfect location! You cannot find a more quiet, relaxing hideaway than this place. The kitchen is perfectly stocked with any equipment that you may need. The yard is so nicely done...loved all the flowers. It's definitely a gem! We've stayed with Escape to Blue Ridge several times now and never a problem! Great service every time!
This home has all you need to have a great stay. The playground outside is a plus when traveling with small children. The game room was great for the guys to have men time. The cabin was very clean inside and outside. I like that it has plenty sitting areas. Will definitely return to this cabin.
2/18 - Enjoyed the closeness of the home to the river, the abundance of sitting areas that face the river, the game room, and the comfortable feel of the home. Fantastic company! Very friendly, very accommodating, very easy to work with.
2/18 - This is our 4th trip to this beautiful cabin. It's so warm and cozy. The view is spectacular and can be enjoyed from so many areas inside and out. Hard to describe but it almost gives a feeling of floating on the river while sitting upstairs in the breakfast area or enjoying the pool room with family. We have never wanted for anything and have already planned our return back to this relaxing piece of heaven in the fall. We have been booking cabins with your company for around 10 years. I have to say we have been completely satisfied with your excellent service and we always recommend you to our friends and family.

09/17- This cabin has it all! This is our 3rd trip to Blue Ridge staying at this amazing river home. We love it! From the time we get there until the time we leave we are completely captivated by the beauty of the home itself and the surrounding tranquil property. Its perfect for 2 or 3 couples and surprisingly private despite the proximity to neighboring homes. We usually make a yearly visit to the area and have stayed in many cabins over the years but will always return to Big River Lodge. Very impressed with Escape to Blue Ridge! Any time I have had questions before or during a stay it has been handled promptly and in a very professional manner. The properties we have stayed at over the years are bar none the best Blue Ridge has to offer!
09/17- I sent 7 different people this cabin? Ask the owner if they would sell it? I would still let you guys manage it.
08/17- This is our favorite cabin so far! The cabin's layout is great. The grounds are beautiful and it's maintained so well. Also, the beds are so comfy! Pleasant to work with. You make the process so easy.
06/17- We loved how the property was sprawled out. Kids had plenty of places to play ball and run around. With little kids that's important so nobody gets cabin fever. We loved that we could raft right up to our back porch. We loved the separate spaces so that we didn't feel so crowded. Besides wishing we had an extra bathroom this place was perfect.
02/17- Extremely well stocked cabin. The sounds from the river and the many seating areas to enjoy the view were fantastic. The outside fire place and seating area was great on the cool nights. The cabin was updated and clean. This is the first time we have stayed on the river after many trips to one of Escape to Blue Ridge's mountain cabins. It will be hard to decide between the two locations next trip! This is at least the 4th time we have used Escape to Blue Ridge. We have not used another rental company since we found them.
01/17- The home was beautiful. The tranquility and relaxation were awesome. Great Company. Will reserve other cabins with your company from now on.
12/16- This cabin has great amenities and a great location just feet from the river. Being able to sit outside on the many porches and listen to the river was awesome. Great attention to detail.
12/16- Great attention to detail. Everything was very well organized and labeled, with clear instructions. The cabin was very clean and had everything you need to have a great experience. Very friendly staff and easy to deal with.

08/16- The rustic appeal and the location on the river was great.
06/16- The attention to detail and the overall decor and location! I couldn't imagine a need for anything really, everything was labeled, offered and readily available for use from location of items in the kitchen to laundry baskets in each room! The games provided were awesome on our rainy day and yet close to area shops and attractions to take part in!I love the overall easiness in booking, the readily available contacts if I had a question and should have called them I suppose about the pullout on the first day. The rest of the cabin, directions and continued updates on code information etc. was helpful and prompt! Will definitely suggest to family and friends and already have a few inquiring for info which I will gladly offer to them so that they too may have a wonderful vacation filled with great memories!
05/16- The cabin exceeded our expectations. The outdoor living areas were greatly utilized by our crew! Once we arrived at the home we changed our white water rafting trip from a full day to a half day trip to ensure we would have more time at the home. The home provided us with the amenities and environment needed for us to relax.......that is a true luxury in today's busy world. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this home!!!Escape to Blue Ridge has been wonderful since my first phone call. I never had to ask for anything.....the company anticipated our every need. We also noticed the minor things that were handled once we arrived at the cabin. For example: there was a fire starter block and wood in the fireplace when we decided we would like a fire, a dish washer pod already loaded for when we went to start the machine and there were others. We will return to Blue Ridge, Big River Lodge and Escape to Blue Ridge. Thank you very much for all you did to make our experience fantastic!

03/15- right on the river
12/14- River view, open floor plan, decks/porches, outdoor fireplace. We were pleased that there was plenty of bedding, towels, initial supplies for our large family.
Somehow I thought the cabin was suppose to be decorated for Christmas so we had to run out and get a tree and ornaments, lights before rest of our family got there. Overall our experience from booking through our stay was positive and would book through company and/or stay at Big River Lodge again.

You all were very friendly. Answered every question I had leaving no doubts. The emails were timely and provided all the info I needed.
