Nestled among majestic pines with its soaring prow roof pointing toward the sky and spectacular mountain view, the North Georgia mountain cabin rental Black Bear Ridge makes a beautiful first impression. This spacious log-sided showplace, situated on 1.78 private acres in the gated community that gives it its name, is the height of rustic luxury, with all the comforts and amenities to make your vacation sublime. 

As impressive as it is from the outside, Black Bear Ridge is just as striking when you enter the main living area, with its soaring ceiling and wall of windows overlooking the mountains. Leather sofas and Amish rockers beckon you to settle in front of the stacked stone fireplace (one of four in the cabin) to watch TV and relax. The adjacent kitchen, with its granite countertops, and black electric appliances, is well stocked with conveniences including an electric skillet, roaster oven, blender, coffeemaker, icemaker and crockpot. There’s seating for 10 in the dining area, and four more at the breakfast bar.

If you’re in the mood for a little competitive fun, head downstairs to the game room to play foosball, shuffleboard, or board games while you watch the 86" Smart TV. Or step onto the screened-in porch, where you’ll find a stone gas fireplace, ample seating, and a gas grill on the adjacent deck. On the lower deck, enjoy a soak in the six-seat hot tub; then warm yourself by the fireplace as you take in the mountain view.  There are also rocking chairs and a picnic table.  A separate fire pit with seating is steps away.

The four inviting bedrooms are handsomely and quite appropriately decorated in a black bear and pine tree theme, each with ceiling fan, unique wood bed and colorful quilt. The upstairs master suite has a king bed, stone fireplace, sitting area, 40” flat screen TV, private balcony, and a bath with double vanity, free standing tub and walk-in shower for two with 2 rain shower heads. The two bedrooms on the main level, one with a queen and one with a king bed, each with a bath with shower, and the downstairs master has a king bed and bath with a walk-in shower. There are twin murphy beds in the game room and a crib available for the smallest guests.

Located near Ellijay, Black Bear Ridge is convenient to many activities, from apple picking in nearby orchards, vineyards and winery tours to hiking, fishing, and geocaching at Amicalola Falls State Park to a round of golf at Whitepath Golf Club. You can swim, bike, and rent a boat at Fort Mountain State Park, go canoeing, kayaking, and tubing on the Cartecay, Ellijay, Coosawattee rivers, or try ziplining, tobogganing at Jasper Cherokee Valley Ranch, followed by a hayride.  Explore the numerous wineries within a ten-minute drive. 

Offering the ultimate in relaxation in an incomparable setting and lots of fun adventures just a short drive away, Black Bear Ridge is truly the best of both worlds, and promises a vacation you won’t soon forget.

The house had all the amenities that our group of 8 needed. From the multiple fireplaces/fire pits, to the games in the basement and the cozy couch in the family room that was used non-stop! The large prow windows made the whole vibe of the home the best! There was plenty of space to spread out. The updated bathrooms were fabulous with the overhead showers!

We had my Dad's 80th birthday weekend here and we all enjoyed our stay so much. Beautiful view, beautiful weather. The landscaping is very nice. We had everything we needed. Thank you!!

- Julie , Posted: 05/17/2023

 We enjoyed eating meals, drinking wine and playing board and card games. Our grandson and his friend enjoyed the large TV, foosball, corn hole, and eating smores around the fire pit. Since they are 14, it's hard to impress them and keep them entertained. We enjoyed lots of laughs and sharing stories from present and past experiences.

- Kelley , Posted: 02/18/2023

We celebrated a birthday and enjoyed family time in the hot tub and around the fire pit.  

- Rick , Posted: 02/06/2023

Cabin is amazing. Perfect for what we needed. We watched football, played games, sat in the hot tub and by the firepit. 

- Michael , Posted: 01/16/2023
The overall comfortability, view, landscape, hot tub, bathroom designs and outdoor fireplace, peace and quiet were wonderful.

- Kelly , Posted: 05/25/2022
We all had a wonderful time. The cabin was well equipped. The kitchen had just about everything. Bedrooms had extra blankets, lots of games and entertainment. Furniture was comfortable inside and out. Beautiful view.

Our trip to Ellijay and the Black Bear Ridge mountain cabin was everything we were hoping for and more!

We were a group of six, looking to get away for a long weekend, get out in nature, and eat some great food – all without the kiddos! We were certainly able to accomplish all the above and our expectations were exceeded!

We were so excited to see that our cabin was just as nice as the photos on the rental site. The cabin is SO spacious and very clean. It was large enough we all had our own space, and with three couples that was appreciated. The location of the cabin was quiet, peaceful, and beautiful.. We cannot recommend Black Bear Ridge enough. Each morning started with coffee on the screened in porch, surrounded by the sounds of nature and warmed by the fireplace. After a day of adventure, the deck, hot tub and fire pit provided the perfect opportunities to catch up, relax and enjoy the spectacular mountain views.

There was ample space for 8 adults, the kitchen was a decent size and had what was needed to cook with.

This home was great! Beautifully decorated and lots of space. Had everything that we needed for our group of 8 adults and was very clean. We will be back again

This was a marriage retreat.  It was perfect fall weather.  We relaxed, played games and shopping.  Our favorite moments were the conversations around the fire pit, couples cooking and the games we played!

- Anedra , Posted: 09/30/2021

This was a family vacation.  We did everything!  Saw lots of deer in the yard.  Went to Amicalola Falls and spent time with our 98-year-old grandma!  Great memories!

- Tracey , Posted: 07/17/2021
There was plenty of room for our family of 10 to enjoy a little time away. We loved that it had 4 bedrooms plus the 2 twin size Murphy beds. We played lots of games downstairs in the game room and enjoyed making s'mores over the fire pit.
- Allison , Posted: 06/16/2021

The detail in this "home away from home" reminds us of the details of God's creation in nature outside the windows.  WOW!!!  Thanks for making some great memories.  This is such a special place.

We were in dire need of a vacation since covid and escaped to Ellijay, GA. This small city housed the most welcoming community and this wonderful cabin, Black Bear Ridge. This cabin was everything we could’ve have imagine and more. Black Bear Ridge cabin is tucked away in a gated community with breath taking  scenery in every direction. Very well maintained, organized and clean. The cabin is set up with everything you would need: kitchen fully equipped, washer/dryer and strong WiFi.  Loved the cozy decor, game room, jacuzzi and fire pit. We were busy making memories while visiting Amicalola Falls, site seeing through the city Helen and laughing around the fire pit making s’mores and playing corn hole.  We felt at home, safe and at peace while staying here- our bond definitely grew stronger.  I strongly encourage you to read the guest journal that is located in the living room. The journal reveals previous guest experiences, like the wildlife they have seen, different places they have visited and recommendations. This was by far the best vacation we have ever taken and the cabin was the #1 reason.

This cabin is beautiful!  It's like a home away from home.  Everything we needed was right at hand. Very equipped cabin with everything a home should have. This was like home and we treated it like that.  Thank you for having us!  We are planning to come back and will stay at Black Bear of course!

- Caroline , Posted: 05/26/2021
We enjoyed the spacious environment and quietness of the location and how peaceful it was and relaxing.
- Denise , Posted: 05/09/2021

This is the most fabulous home with the cutest Murphy Bed ever downstairs.  No detail is overlooked in this amazing home.  Thank you for sharing your beautiful mountain cabin.  You have thought of everything.  Love the decor!!!

- Allison , Posted: 04/05/2021
When we first arrived at this home, it was just what the pictures looked like. Everything about this home was just wonderful. Rained for two days, but everyone had space. The kids loved the game room and the adults had plenty of room to play games also. The view and amenities were outstanding.
- Janice , Posted: 03/19/2021

This town is SO nice and quaint.  The people are very friendly.   We enjoyed going to The Reece Apple Orchards Store and the Amish Furniture store on the square in Ellijay.  (What a cute town!). We loved the beautiful views from the wonderful decks and porches.  We love the hot tub, the walks, and the well-stocked kitchen. We really enjoyed this peaceful place!  What a great house with so many options to enjoy the great scenery.  The beds were comfortable and we loved the fireplace in the Primary bedroom. This is truly a cozy escape and this house offers the best of any mountain getaway lodge.


- Nancy , Posted: 01/15/2021
The view and location of this cabin are incredible. The cabin is beautiful and spacious. There was plenty of room for all members of the family to have their own space. My father-in-law, who is a carpenter and a lover of black bears was quite impressed by the woodwork of the cabin and the bear décor. There were many items I did not expect, such as more than enough dishes, firewood. Thank you for the cabin experience. Again, it was a beautiful cabin in a beautiful location! Our family had a very relaxing vacation and we look forward to doing this again in the future.
- Sunshine , Posted: 11/27/2020
Good amount of space, nice furniture and decorations. Nice layout and fire pit proximity

The beauty of the place and the cabin were amazing! Lisa and Carolyn were excellent helping us with the internet and the fire places issues that we had while in the cabin.

The space and activities. Overall a very nice cabin. We made lots of family memories.
- Thomas , Posted: 03/18/2020
We have rented many cabins for our large family vacations. This was the best. The spaces were large and lovely. The house was very well stocked. Beds were comfortable. The screened porch and the gate on the outside deck made it possible to relax even with a toddler in the group. The fire pit, hot tub, swing. All of the boxes on our wish list were checked and then some. Escape to Blue Ridge was a friendly and professional company. We had a garbage disposal problem that was addressed quickly. We will absolutely use this company again.
- Mary , Posted: 06/19/2019
The lovely country atmosphere inside and out. I felt like I was home away home. The cozy feeling you get just by relaxing in the beautiful most decorative home filled with Black Bear Ridge adorable wall and flooring decorations. I loved everything! Everything was fully furnished. Can't really think of anything it needs.. Very professional and prompt to response for clients.

08/18 - This was, by far, our favorite cabin and place to stay in. There was plenty of "essentials" - towels, a wonderful welcoming basket, Tupperware to store leftovers, blankets, extra dishes, and pots, pans, and baking sheets to cook with. We especially loved sitting outside on the swing on the downstairs porch, enjoying the view and peace and quiet. The bear decor is adorable and appropriate. There is plenty of room for those who may need a quiet moment to themselves. There is so much to do here - the kids loved being in the hot tub, then everyone played the games and enjoyed the puzzles and movies. You will want for nothing when staying at this cabin. It is home away from home! Terrific! Everything was clean and loved coming in to soft music playing and lights on.

10/18 - Nicest vacation home we have stayed in! Great hot tub and games. Wifi/cable are top-notch. Enjoyed views from decks/balconies and the master suite/whirlpool. Secluded, yet close to orchard, made this the perfect stay. We will be back!!! Excellent customer service.

- Ken and Bobbie

11/18 - Loved everything!! The cabin was very welcoming and exceptionally clean! We did not go out and do a lot of exploring as this was truly an R & R trip for all of the couples that went.
