If you have high hopes for your precious time away, High Expectations is the North Georgia Mountains cabin rental for you. This is where wishes come true and joyful memories are made, a place where your spirits will soar and a sense of freedom and fun is in the air.

Located just a short 20 minute drive to the wonderful shops, restaurants and wine bars of downtown Blue Ridge and a half hour to Murphy, NC, where you can try your luck at the Harrah’s Casino, the cabin is perched on a mountain ridge, providing you with breathtaking vistas as far as your eye can see. Whether you’re on the main level, in the bedrooms, out on the wraparound decks, or soaking in the hot tub that accommodates six, you’ll take in up close and long range views of the mountains, each one worthy of a picture postcard. 

Open and sunny with sky high ceilings and warm pine walls, High Expectations draws you in with its professionally decorated setting and wildlife motif, with fishing, bears, moose, and game themes greeting you in different areas throughout the cabin – right down to the family room’s fish-themed rug! 

Outdoor enthusiasts have come to the right place. There is always something new to do and see here. Go for a refreshing hike on a local trail, or traverse the hills on horseback. Grab your golf clubs and hit the links, or head down to the river for a day of fishing, swimming and tubing. Back home you can spend a lazy day on the deck’s rocking chairs and porch swing, gazing out at the wide expanse of mountains and blue sky before you. Here in these beautiful surroundings, you’ll feel far from the busyness of city living, hidden away in your own peaceful paradise.

If indoor activities are more your speed, you’ll be right at home here too. Have fun all afternoon playing pool or foosball. Pair up in teams to play board games or cards, or go one on one with checkers and chess. Enjoy a ball game or movie on the large Smart TV. Or simply curl up with a good book in the cozy loft and lose yourself for hours in another world. 

Later in the day, grill some fresh fish and have an early dinner out on the picnic table in the fresh air. Then spend a relaxing evening settled into an Adirondack chair with a cool drink and watch the stars appear in the twilight sky.

Ride off into the sunset in the Western-themed master suite upstairs with its custom log bed and private walkout porch. There’s also a queen bedroom on the main floor that opens out to the deck, and a queen bedroom in the basement that opens to another deck and the hot tub. Each cozy, themed bedroom is situated on its own floor for added privacy, all with their own bathrooms. 

High Expectations is a place for friends and family to escape, put aside their busy lives, and spend time enjoying each other’s company; a place where relationships are built and strengthened among the natural beauty of the mountains. Bring the ones you love here for a vacation that will truly exceed your High Expectations.

We loved that this home could fit our 6 person family and 2 dogs comfortably. Everyone had plenty of space to spread out. The kids enjoyed the pool and Foosball tables, the adults enjoyed the deck spaces, and the dogs loved running up and down the hill.

12/14- The space, view, amenities, and fireplace. Being far enough away from the other cabins but close enough to know you're not out there all alone. Some of the nicest customer service I have encountered ever or in an extremely long time. Was treated with nothing but respect and care for my stay and making sure that everything was handled correctly and timely.

Beautiful luxury cabin with breath-taking view. Tasteful decor and furnishings. We were very happy with this experience. This was not our first trip to Blue Ridge, but was our first experience with Escape to Blue Ridge. Everything was as advertised, and everything went without any problems. We WILL be dealing with Escape to Blue Ridge again next year, and recommend them to anyone looking for a nice cabin in the Blue Ridge area!

09/15- It was my first time at a cabin and it was a beautiful experience. The interior of the home and the exterior was beautiful...it was just enough space, plenty or privacy, and relaxation. I had a really nice time. The only bad thing was I couldn't stay longer.
- Kerideith
10/14- The home was extremely clean. We loved the floor plan with all 3 bedrooms on a separate floor and they all had their own bathrooms and door to balcony.

08/14- This cabin was very spacious. There were 6 guests and we all had plenty of room. I had the pleasure of sleeping in the master bedroom which had a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom which I enjoyed so much. We all loved the view of the mountains from the decks. The game room was a big hit as well. This was my second time visiting and like the first time, I really enjoyed the peace and relaxation I experienced. I would definitely recommend Blue Ridge to others and most importantly, I will be returning again. The reservation staff was very friendly and helpful too. BLUE RIDGE ROCKS!!!!!!

06/15- The french doors in the upper bedroom that open up to a spectacular view was the most valued feature. The cabin was very comfortable and was equipped with the essentials. Very private, too. This is my second time to use Escape to Blue Ridge and I will continue to check out to see what's available with you guys. This cabin has by far been my favorite because I am all about the view.

02/17- Quiet and private but, still not too far to downtown Blue Ridge and shops. Very professional company. We've stayed in several cabins over the years and all the cabins are immaculate and well maintained and the service is excellent.
- Abigail
07/15- It has all the comforts of home and anything you would need. The views from the 3rd floor are breathtaking. The game room was perfect and even had board games for the kids. There were books in the loft and a great place to do some reading. People are always very friendly and helpful when I called. I would definately rent this home and from here again.

07/16- The view is one of the best I have ever seen in the Blue Ridge area. The home is tucked away, but there was some traffic noise from the community residents and for the construction that was going on around us. Having 3 floors was great for the extended family we had. The game room and hot tub made the younger members of our group very happy! The drive to the cabin was also very easy.
