About Echota Pine
In the Cherokee Indian language, 'Echota' [eh-CHOE-ta] represents a place of sanctuary and renewal and epitomizes the feeling created by this beautiful Blue Ridge cabin rental. Its sylvan ambience begins the moment you turn onto the driveway flanked in pine trees. The "rock chrysanthemum" design and boulder path leading you to the front door are only a glimpse of what awaits you in your refuge in the pines.
As you step inside, a beautiful view of the lake welcomes you to your home away from home. Echota Pine is special in so many ways, the least of which is the fact that the builder used 100-year-old pines cleared from the property when the cabin was built to trim the doorways and windows, giving it its authentic, rustic look.
Large windows and double glass doors frame picturesque views that will delight your senses. The family room of this tongue and groove pine cabin boasts soaring cathedral ceilings accented by huge timber crossbeams. Every detail in the decor was chosen to pull elements of the outdoors inside. You'll get the feeling at Echota Pine that there are no walls that separate you from nature. The atmosphere is pure, peaceful, and "of the woods."
A unique signature piece, a 'tree of life,' hangs in the stairwell, signaling that this is a sacred space to get back to the basics — family, love, and laughter. Preparing food for large celebrations is a piece of cake since this cabin has not one, but TWO full-size kitchens. Entertain family and friends with ease. The kitchen is well-stocked with all a discerning chef could hope for. Spend a lazy afternoon lounging on one of the decks; warm up on chilly evenings by the outdoor wood-burning fireplace; or relax in the hot tub any time of day that suits you.
Sleep peacefully in one of four inviting bedrooms -- you'll have three masters to choose from, two of which open out onto the back deck for those quiet times when you might just want to enjoy a cup of coffee as the sun rises! Enjoy the spacious walk-in closets and ensuite bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs. Children and teens are sure to enjoy the bunk room with accommodations that sleep 4 and its own personal DVD player.
You're surrounded by nature at every turn at Echota Pine. Head to the Aska hiking trails or waterfalls just minutes away, go fishing on the Toccoa, or take your boat or jet skis to the local marina just a few miles down the road and spend the day on the water. Browse downtown Blue Ridge's galleries and antique stores only 15 minutes away, visit Mercier Orchards, take the scenic train, or catch a movie at the nostalgic Swan Drive In theatre. Drive just a few miles down the road, and feast on ribs or fresh seafood at the famous Toccoa Riverside Restaurant.
Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "In the woods, we return to reason and faith." This quote appears in the king master and truly reflects the essence of Echota Pine, designed to be a refuge where people can relax and reconnect with themselves, family and friends. Leave the pressures of the day-to-day, and return to "reason and faith," fully renewed in body and spirit.

03/17- This home fits the needs of our family of 10 perfectly (6 adults, 4 kids) and one large dog. The huge interior, both upstairs and down, enable us to spread out and do our own thing. We particularly love the porches where kids can play, adults can relax by the fire, and the dog can wander and look out at the woods, without fear of them getting off since the only way out of the house is via the front door. We LOVE the fireplace on the porch, day and night. We love Escape to Blue Ridge and Echota Pine. Every attempt is made to create a wonderful experience for the guests, from first contact to the last. This is our second trip there with EBR / Echota Pine and we plan to return until the kids are too big for the bunks!

07/16- Very private cabin with excellent parking. Top of the line cabin, both indoors and outdoors. Plentiful outdoor and indoor seating. The bedrooms were comfortable with tons of storage. One of the best cabins that we have ever rented in the mountains. Great proximity to hiking trails and outdoor activities. Relaxing deck with wooded view of the lake below. Lots of wildlife, including a little deer herd that visits daily. EBR has always provided superior cabins and service through all of the years we have rented from them. Easy reservations, check in and out policies and response time for any issues that may come up.

02/16- I loved the layout of the home because it allowed both couples privacy. We did not need the second kitchen but I will keep it in mind when booking again with additional guest.

12/15- The cabin was very tastefully decorated-not a lot of bears or moose. It had a very open feeling both upstairs and downstairs. The view of the lake was lovely. I especially enjoyed the professionally cleaned towels in the bathrooms. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We were kept well informed about payments and the owner even delivered a brand new outdoor grill.
11/15- The amount of available inside space to spread out is key. Having two kitchens is nice but I don't see it as an advantage, but a nice option to have. The primary kitchen was well equipped and the outdoor space on each deck was ample. The outdoor fire place is very nice and the large amount of firewood was appreciated! We have used EBR for a number of years and will continue to do so. The experience is always pleasurable.
