Big Sky Retreat

From $199.00 Per Night

View: Mountain Location: Blue Ridge
3 Bedrooms 3 Baths Sleeps 10 Yes
Big Sky Retreat dons its name from its sweeping, western-facing vista as far as the eye can see. Perched on the edge of Sunrock Mountain, this luxurious retreat offers breathtaking views of the Cohutta Mountains. The sunsets are simply stunning here, making every evening magical. With three viewing decks and a fabulous backyard and fire pit, you will be immersed in a scene of wilderness and beauty.

Everything about Big Sky Retreat is big — from the bedrooms and living areas, to the decks and surrounding land. That big mountain feel is brought indoors by the wilderness theme woven throughout the cabin, with thoughtful details such as an antler fan chandelier, saddle bar stools, a cowhide rug and more. Even the bathrooms feature wildlife decor, from fishing-style accessories in one to pinecone accents in another, and a bear theme in the third.

Adventurous spirits will relish the exciting mountain activities nearby. Start the day with an energizing hike to get your blood flowing. Explore waterfalls or even take on the rapids with some whitewater rafting. Then head out for a horseback ride to take in views of the beautiful countryside, and catch a music festival in town.

When blue skies prevail, there's plenty to do right outside your door. Play horseshoes while your designated 'Master Griller' gets some burgers going for the gang. Someone else can whip up side dishes in the roomy, open kitchen to round out the perfect barbecue dinner, or a gourmet feast instead if the occasion calls. Then, everyone can head down to the large fire pit, enjoy a nightcap as the sun sets, and wind down with a relaxing soak in the hot tub while stargazing. 

But rain or shine, whatever the sky has in store, there's always big fun to be had at Big Sky Retreat. Use the huge table in the loft to put together a puzzle on a rainy day. And there are plenty of games, books and cards to entertain the kids for hours. Or pop some popcorn and watch a movie. In cooler months, fire-up the crock pot for a meal you can start in the morning and come back to at night. Presto! Dinner's ready, leaving you the whole day to enjoy.

After a full day of fun and adventure, three spacious bedrooms with sumptuous king-size beds and beautiful rustic furniture await you. Curl up with a page-turner or watch a show before settling in for a restful night's sleep.

Big space, big views and big fun — this luxury cabin has it all. Making the most of your mountain vacation will be a breeze at Big Sky Retreat.

Back again!! We were here for a birthday trip with my family. We relaxed, laughed, ate together and just enjoyed the family being together for awesome quality time! We visited the Rum Cake Lady bakery/cafe and everything we got there was very good. We all enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit was great. We created lots of memories here. Thank you!!

THE MOUNTAINS WERE CALLING!! Thank you for opening your BEAUTIFUL CABIN! We have created so many wonderful memories here! We love Blue Ridge! The sunsets and sunrises were different every day and it was magical to watch from the hot tub! The cabin has EVERYTHING needed for the best mountain getaway. We needed a vacation getaway and came when it was FREEZING! But being together is why we love cabin life. Honestly, we are already looking forward to next time...only it will be summer or fall!

We decided to come up to Blue Ridge for a family vacation. The weather was perfect and we went shopping downtown, had the best cheesecake at The Sweet Shoppe and enjoyed Chester's and The Pasta Market too.....but the highlight of the trip was sitting in the hot tub and playing pool at night.

- Christina , Posted: 11/14/2023
We enjoyed the view and the gas fireplace the most.
- Susan , Posted: 10/31/2023

We had a good time here. Lots to see and do.

- George , Posted: 09/25/2023

We came up here because we had to get out of the heat in southern Florida (in the 90's and high humidity) and we also came to celebrate 2 birthdays on September 3rd and 6th. We played games, read, took walks, cooked, spent time in the hot tub and by the fire. We loved General Ledger in Blue Ridge and the Toccoa Riverside restaurant right on the Toccoa river. Still, our favorite times were celebrating father and son birthdays with my son from Missouri and my daughter up from Florida.

The home was remarkably beautiful and comfortable. The scenery was fantastic. The amenities were sufficient for the number of people and the length of stay.

This is a beautiful home with incredible views and close to town. Our family of eight was very comfortable here. Would love to come back when it's warmer.
- Rachel , Posted: 01/01/2023
Overall, this home is beautifully maintained and well equipped to provide a wonderful vacation! The kitchen was better stocked than any other rental home I've experienced and there were plenty to towels and extra blankets. We slept well in the cozy bedroom and thoroughly enjoyed the porch views, fire pit and the ease of the gas fireplace in the mornings. Absolutely lovely spot that will make it hard to leave! We are already planning a return trip!

The cabin was incredibly beautiful and the mountain view was breathtaking. We watched as the leaves changed its beautiful colors. We have been to 4 other Cabins in the past years with other friends and my family agrees that this is by far the best. It was super clean, the furnitures are of top notch quality and the details of the cabin spells luxury. The bedrooms having its own bathroom and the king beds were perfect for my entire family. The adults and children enjoyed the gameroom amenities, hot tub was the crowds favorite and even though it drizzled outside, we are still able to make bonfire and made lasting memories in the outside firepit, making smores, drinking hot cocoa and sharing stories/ experiences. I loved to cook so the kitchen was my favorite place. Everything was convenient and well stocked with high quality dishes and cooking utensils. Everything I need was available, like i have a magic wand in my hand and everything my heart desires is at the tip of my hand. Seeing my kids having a blast was invaluable. My kids doesn't want to leave yet and made me promise to come back next year again for a more longer stay. The bonding moments was priceless… for everything else there's a visa card. Hehehe

10/15- Lovely, comfortable we made dinner almost every night. There were plenty of kitchen supplies to be able to do that. I have stayed at big sky before,this is my 3rd time. I liked it or I would not be back. We come in October for the cooler weather and to see the fall colors. Love the little town of Blue Ridge. Staff very pleasant to work with. I liked getting the code to the cabin so when we arrived we didn't have to go to a business to pick up the key just had to let ourselves in.

09/17- This trips was a guys trip and we all had a great time. we are also talking about doing this trip once a year from now on. The cabin was great the only problem we had was that we were told they wood for fire pit would be supplied and upon arrival there was no wood, called and spoke to guest services. They did bring enough wood for a small fire, we had to buy or own wood for next next which was very disappointing considering we have wood chopped and split at our homes we could have brought and not had to pay for.

04/17- We had a great time at Big Sky Retreat! The views were amazing, the house clean and very cozy. The pictures do not do it justice. There is a bedroom and full bath on each floor - the basement, first floor and top floor. There is a nice loft area with a huge comfy sectional that overlooks the living room and has great views of the mountains. We really enjoyed the hot tub and could see the mountains while sitting in it. The kitchen had all that we needed and the bar with the stools in the kitchen was great. Mercier Orchards is a 10 minute drive from the cabin. Blue Ridge was a quick 15 minute drive. We drove 45 minutes to Three Forks trail and hiked to a waterfall. There is a WalMart about 10-15 minutes from the cabin. I would highly recommend gem mining at The Lilly Pad Village. It was really fun for our kids and the staff were very nice. My kids each walked away with about 10-15 gems. We had a really great time and will definitely be returning to Blue Ridge and using Escape to Blue Ridge for our lodging needs! We have a great impression of the company. Directions and instructions were clear and helpful. All staff were friendly and helpful. I will definitely recommend Escape to Blue Ridge to our friends here in the local Atlanta area!

The house was beautiful and we loved the deck and firepit. Having three floors was really nice for sleeping privacy. There was plenty of space for us to spread out. The drive up to the cabin was nicely paved all the way. We are already planning on coming back. The company was very pleasant to work with.

05/18 - This home was absolutely beautiful. We loved the view, it was breathtaking. We enjoyed the fire pit, pool table and deck. Having three floors made it very spacious for us all to spread out.

- Patricia

06/18 - The view was amazing. Top notch company.

- Mike

07/18 - Our favorite feature of the home was the three levels with each level having a full bath and king bed. Also, the view was fantastic especially at sunset. Every interaction I had with the reps was always pleasant, my questions were answered and the rep always said to call with any questions that we had. I always felt I was important even when my questions seemed silly.
