Higher Ground

From $199.00 Per Night

View: Mountain Location: Aska Adventure Area
3 Bedrooms 3 Baths Sleeps 8 No
If luxury, privacy and comfort in a lovely wooded setting is what you seek, you’ll find all of that and much, much more at Higher Ground, a spectacular showplace located in the Aska Adventure area with breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This unique North Georgia cabin rental is the perfect place to escape the hectic pace of daily life, decompress and enjoy the peace, quiet and freedom of the country with family and friends. Higher Ground even has celebrity cachet: it’s the former home of a famous fly fisherman who has been featured in many magazines and appeared on ESPN and The Outdoor Channel.

Built of knotty pine and lavishly appointed inside and out, Higher Ground has the amenities of an exclusive resort in the intimacy of a private home. First, there’s the showpiece of a family room, with its cathedral ceiling, wood-burning stone fireplace, and down-filled furniture to provide ample seating for all. 

The three professionally decorated bedrooms are cozy and comfortable, decorated with pine paneling, ceiling fans and invitingly warm earth tones. You’ll nestle in for the night and wake up refreshed for your day in the mountains. And if you’re staying in the upstairs master bedroom, you’ll find a king bed and a private deck with two rocking chairs. Step outside with a cup of morning coffee and enjoy the view!

Higher Ground’s open kitchen has custom pine cabinets and all the appliances you’ll need. Dine inside at a table that seats six, or fire up the gas grill for your favorite barbecue. You can play a game of basketball or grab a book and a drink and take in the mountain air from an inviting porch swing, hammock or a rocking chair as you listen to music on the outdoor speaker system. 

For indoor entertainment, there are five flat screen TVs, two DVD players, a stereo and CD player (don’t forget to pack your favorite music!), and a PlayStation 3 gaming system. The basement game room is stocked with board and card games, puzzles, foosball table and electronic darts. 

True to its name, Higher Ground is the height of luxury in a rustic setting, and a stay there will provide you with a vacation experience to savor and remember for years to come.

We love Higher Ground. It's a house with an amazing amount of space for such a small footprint. The view is unmatched by any house around.

01/17- The fact that each couple had sleeping quarters on separate floors appealed to us. We could get away for our own couple's private time and come back together on the main level for eating and fellowship. The view was breathtaking! Escape to Blue Ridge was very helpful in setting up our reservation.

11/15- The house was fully stocked with just about anything we would have needed for the weekend. The house itself is decorated and has many nice amenities and is very warm and inviting. The hot tub was enjoyable, very clean and well-maintained. The entire house, including the outside deck, the hammock, the hot tub and all the rooms inside were inviting, comfortable and very clean. We will definitely come back to Higher Ground! I was very impressed with my dealings with your company. My emails were promptly answered and they were very efficient, professional and pleasant to work with.

12/15- Great location. Great view. Awesome house

08/16- There were no strong points being that the listed advertised high speed internet and this was surly not the case. The internet did not work at all and the phone reception only worked half the time. The cabin actually has a signal booster but it also doesn\'t work. The technology in this cabin is so far out of date which is not a problem, but the description of the listing really is not what one gets when actually arriving to the cabin. The information in the orientation binder advised to reset the modem if having connectivity issues but upon calling guest services we learned that this cabin doesn\'t even have a modem that is accessible to the guest yo reset. We also noticed that the hot tub was not clean and had several bugs gloating in it.
- Shenerika
07/15- The cabin was beautiful, extremely comfortable, with an amazing view. Everything was very clean and organized and we felt right at home. The road leading to the cabin wasn't bad either. It was really the perfect place to stay. I will strongly recommend your company and have been doing so ever since we arrived. Very professional,excellent service, and very friendly staff.

04/15- The home was exactly like the pictures, although it seemed larger in the pictures on the website. It was perfect for our 3 couples with a bedroom on each floor. Everything was done in such good taste. The decor was so inviting and made you feel right at home. If we are ever in the area again we would definitely consider it again.
- Sandra
11/16- Isolated location & the view. Positive interactions. Allowed for a great experience.
- Gary
10/16- The residence was a high quality, well decorated and furnished home. The location was good. The owner had provided plenty of wood for the fireplaces and fire pit. We loved sitting at the fire pit by a warm fire. My interactions with the company were good.
- Thomas
11/16- The home is a custom designed home with upscale amenities while still feeling down to earth and homey. It is a very comfortable and relaxing cabin. The kitchen is extremely well stocked. Plenty of linens and towels were provided for our stay. The beds are comfortable. We had a great relaxing anniversary trip. We have stayed in MANY cabins in the area and this one definitely makes the top of the list. The company was extremely helpful and prompt with all our requests. It was a pleasure working with them.
- Cindy
12/16- The floor plan was great for multiple families. The furniture was comfortable and functional. We appreciated that the wood was provided for indoor fires. Very pleased!

10/17- First impression of pulling into the circle drive... "WOW!" The cabin itself is amazing! The decor is inviting and the view is breathtaking. The cabin did have just about every amenity we could ask for. I also loved the email notifications prior to the the trip with directions and reminders. Very friendly and efficient.
- Brandy
09/17- EVERYTHING!! It was just what we were looking for in a cabin. The drive out from town was interesting, but over the days we were very comfortable getting to our secret cabin in the woods. Just beautiful inside and out. They thought of everything. The kitchen was well stocked and coffee was provided. The back deck was our favorite at night and for morning coffee . Such an easy place to relax. We are planning our next visit to Blue Ridge from Nashville. It was a sweet town and we enjoyed the shopping, the hiking to water falls, and we were invited to a church BBQ over the labor day weekend!
- Tamara M.

03/17- This home is off the beaten path but easily accessible. If you are looking for a secluded location, this is it. The cabin was very clean, very well stocked and in excellent condition. The views were great and we did not have any problems. Excellent service.
- Gary
04/17- Higher Ground was everything we hoped for and MORE! It is the perfect size for friends and family. The house was stocked with everything we needed and we wanted for nothing! The beds are fantastic. The hot tub was so relaxing and we could've spent hours by the fire pit or in the hammock. It also offered every movie channel on cable so we had plenty of movie entertainment! This cabin is elegantly decorated and cozy at the same time. There were plenty of towels and all the bath amenities were provided, including a hair dryer. I can't express how much we loved our stay and we cannot wait to return. The staff, the location, the cabin...all of it fantastic!! First class service from beginning to end!! I've used several different cabin companies in Blue Ridge but this is BY FAR the best I've used and will from now on be the only one I use. I can't wait to try all the cabins!!

03/17- Our favorite features of the home were the view and several amenities such as the hot tub, outdoor patio, fire ring and surrounding outdoor seating area.

09/17- Beautiful home and view, very clean and comfortable beds. 2 different coffee makers, fully stocked kitchen, plenty of seats, pillows and blankets. Basketball goal with 2 basketballs with air, plenty of dry firewood, background music playing as we walked in. Very classy, nice touch with decorative towels on each bed and a little goody gift bag on the kitchen table and simple instructions for wi-fi & remotes. I seldom give out 10's, but we absolutely adore this cabin and location. If I fly fished, we would try to buy this cabin. Thank you! I did give a fellow co-worker your information to book this place in the near future.

01/15- The home was spacious, the dÌÎÌãÌ´å©cor was fabulous, awesome beds and a brand new hot tub!!! We loved this location because you are closer to the falls and trails than you are in the Blue Ridge downtown area. The views from our house were spectacular also.
