Now is the time to make the most of your vacation!  Come and enjoy and create memories at Carpe Diem!  From stunning panoramic views to high-end amenities and a prime location, this magnificent private hideaway offers everything you desire in a Georgia mountain vacation. If you want to escape the stresses of daily life, you’ll find the perfect getaway with this oasis in the woods. Here, you can unwind, relax and share good times with your loved ones as you take in spectacularly stunning mountain views from sunrise to sunset.

Located in the Cohutta Mountain Ridge, the cabin is just 15 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge, and close to a wide variety of fun activities, including horseback riding at Cowgirl Up Stables, hiking the trails of the Aska Adventure area, boating on Lake Blue Ridge, enjoying wine and live music at Bear Claw Vineyards or taking in a movie from your car at the Swan drive-in. 

Newly renovated in 2021 and beautifully designed inside and out, this home is decorated in a mountain/wildlife them. The cabin is the epitome of rustic elegance, with an all-wood interior, a mix of comfortable modern-meets-traditional furniture and a warm, welcoming ambiance. 

The airy open-plan main level, with its lofty ceiling and wall of windows to showcase the amazing view, includes a living area with leather sofas, handwoven Persian rugs mixed with authentic cowhides, a stacked stone fireplace, and a DISH Network and DVD-equipped TV. The spacious kitchen is a cook’s dream, boasting ample cabinet space, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances including a gas stove/oven, a refrigerator with icemaker/ice trays, a microwave, blender, toaster and drip coffeemaker. There’s seating for eight at the dining table, plus four at the island.

If you’d rather dine alfresco, there’s a gas grill on the main deck, a wood-burning fireplace and plenty of outdoor seating including an outdoor high-top table to enjoy spectacular views and a full outdoor dining area. You can take in the view from a rocking chair or from the six-seat hot tub as you soothe your muscles and soak your stresses away. There’s a level playing area for the kids that includes a large fire pit with Adirondack chairs, two driveways and all roads to the cabin are paved. 

For drier pursuits, the downstairs family room has fun and games for all ages, with a billiards table, ping pong, foosball, board games and TV with DISH and DVD, next to the stacked stone gas fireplace. There is also a beautiful full bar featuring a live wood carpentry, a drink refrigerator and plenty of storage. 

The four bedrooms, each cooled by ceiling fans, include a bunk room that sleeps 4, and two master suites located on the main and upper levels. The main floor master features a king bed with beautiful inlaid headboard, deck access, and a spacious master bath with a large walk-in tiled shower, double vanities and separate soaking tub.  The upstairs master also has a king bed, vaulted ceiling, and private bath with an enormous shower for two people and tub.  On the lower level, the bedroom features a beautiful log post queen bed, and an adjacent separate bath and laundry facilities. 

Whichever bedroom you choose you’ll wake invigorated, relaxed and ready for another magical day in the mountains with your family or friends, including the canine ones. At Carpe Diem, you’re welcome to bring your dog with you, as long as they stay off the furniture!

We really enjoyed the space, the entertainment options, the hot tub and the view and surrounding areas. It was peaceful and quiet.Everything was top notch and high quality. The extra little touches were nice. It came with everything we needed to get our stay started. Family friendly but high quality.

Great Blue Ridge Home! My family and I had a great experience at Carpe Diem. The guest services was fantastic, the house was beautiful, and there is plenty of beds and space for everyone. Highly recommend!

The cabin was very clean, well stocked and most of all, had a fantastic Mountain View!
- Tina , Posted: 08/28/2023
Carpe Diem was perfect for our family, it had the rooms spaced out over the house giving privacy to our grown children and because it rained the whole time we were there, the game room was well liked and used. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware. Loved the wood burning fireplace on the covered porch since we couldn't use the fire pit due to the weather. Overall we really loved the house. Just wish we had better weather.

The CLEANLINESS was exceptional throughout the entire home. The presentation of towels, toiletries, kitchen items, etc. really gave it a personal touch! The home is beautifully decorated and the beds are very comfortable. The paved concrete driveway is a huge bonus considering the angle.

Our favorite spot was the outdoor dining area with a close second being the fire pit. This is a beautiful spacious home. The sunsets over the Mountain View were amazing!
- Kara , Posted: 10/20/2021
The views were spectacular, the kitchen well appointed, and we really appreciated the two master bedrooms with king beds, as we were two couples. The double driveway and all paved access were also a bonus.
