Laurel Valley Lodge

From $312.00 Per Night

View: Mountain Location: Aska Adventure Area
5 Bedrooms 4.5 Baths Sleeps 12 Yes
Description
Laurel Valley Lodge is named for the mountain laurel covering the valley it overlooks. Approach this beautiful mountain retreat in springtime and you'll see pink and white blossoms around the cabin and throughout the valley below. Here, you'll enjoy spectacular mountain views, and your location in the popular Aska Adventure Area puts you close to everything. One of the few five-bedroom cabins in the North Georgia Mountains, this spacious lodge is ideal for large groups, family gatherings, holidays and business retreats. Good times are sure to 'blossom' here among the laurels!

The living room will welcome you with its cathedral ceiling and enormous iron chandelier. Sink into the leather sofa to watch a movie, or curl up in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine. Unique accents will delight you, from the twisted bark branch table and bird's nest lamp to the wood-carved guest book. 

And each room is imbued with charm, with tongue and groove wood throughout, hickory branch furniture, Middle Eastern rugs and rustic fixtures. Seasonal garland and arrangements celebrate nature's beauty all year, including a small Christmas tree at the holidays; harvest decorations in autumn; and ivy, birds and flowers during spring and summer. 

The upstairs loft offers a recreation room with a view. Play pool on the hand-carved billiards table, or have a drink at the hickory pub table while enjoying vistas of the mountain range and laurel blooming below. 

The second living room downstairs makes a great hangout for the kids. On rainy days, they'll love watching movies or playing board games in front of the cozy fireplace.

Whether a holiday feast or Super Bowl snacks, you'll have everything you need to entertain in this fully equipped kitchen, featuring custom cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless appliances and gourmet cookware.

The main level's huge wraparound deck is perfect for outdoor entertaining. Grill the Georgia trout caught earlier from the Toccoa, and share stories around the fireplace. On the lower deck, relax under the stars in the sunken hot tub or enjoy a nightcap on the Adirondack chairs. 

Fascinating wildlife frolics outside your door. Bring some bird food, fill the feeders, and pour water in the birdbath, and you will be visited by a variety of colorful birds. Flying squirrels will also eat the bird food at night — grab your flashlight and watch them fly from tree to tree. You may also spot some deer, or even a bear!

Each bedroom has its own theme, with hand-quilted bedding and variations of cedar and knotty pine. The 'Crow's Nest' bedroom is closest to the stars, reflected in the room's star theme — and in your views from its walkout porch. The main floor master has a twisted branch king bed and designer bedding. Indulge in a movie under the covers, or watch for flying squirrels from your private balcony. Also, there are two queen suites on the top floor loft area with its own bathroom. On the lower level, you'll find a bedroom with a king bed and second bedroom with two full beds, perfect for children or single people. 

Whether you're seeking rest or play, this spacious retreat will provide a wonderful vacation experience for you, your family and friends. Happy memories of your stay at Laurel Valley Lodge will bloom and grow for years to come!

All the amenities . It was our second year staying here at Laurel Valley and we've already booked it again for Fall 2020! Our family absolutely loves this cabin and meeting with the famous neighborhood dog Oreo! It makes our trip!! We just love our trips to such a beautiful part of the country.

11/18 - This cabin was absolutely perfect! The interior design was very beautiful, the fire pit was so fun, cookware was stocked in the kitchen, the beds were comfortable, everything was clean... we couldn’t have asked for more! Great company! Every time I called, someone friendly answered the phone quickly and answered all of my questions. It was a very smooth vacation process and that speaks volumes of a great company!

02/15- We have stayed in this house before and all of your homes are beautiful! Escape to Blue Ridge has always been wonderful to us for the last several years and we will continue to use them. This is an annual family girls' trip, but we are thinking that we will come towards the end of March or beginning of April next year! This is the second year in a row where getting up/ down the mountain has been a concern with snow in February.
- Anne
01/16- Big and beautiful. Even though it rained most of the time we were there, there was plenty of space for two families not to get in each others' way. Great location.
- Danielle
01/15- The layout worked very well for our large family. There were a few safety concerns  where we could have used baby gates but they would not stop us from returning. Very clean and full stocked with everything we needed. The kids loved the visits from the neighbors dog.

06/15- Since it rained a lot the week we were at this house, we loved having the covered porch. The floor plan of this house was perfect for our group. We enjoyed sitting by the fire pit and making S'Mores. The kitchen was very well equipped and I liked the way the cabinets and drawers were labeled. Love working with you-- have no complaints. Before I found you I was working with another company, and I definitely prefer yours!!!

04/16- The space, the sturdy furniture, the windows, the showers! Actually, these attributes are too many to name. What the company offers it delivers. This is our second time renting cabins here and we've never been disappointed. When there were issues with the stove and another with the dishwasher, a maintenance was sent out immediately. Although the problem with the stove was not resolved it was manageable.
- Margaret E.

07/14- The large deck and fire pit area was great. We have stayed in cabins managed by Escape to Blue Ridge on 5 different occasions now. We are always impressed by the quality of the homes we stay in. The staff are very friendly and always accommodating! We travel to the area at least once each year and will ALWAYS use Escape to Blue Ridge!!!

- Tim
7/21/14 Laurel Valley Lodge. This is a beautiful cabin with a great kitchen, porch and family room. I love that the hot tub was in the open and not under a deck. We used the firepit often......great atmosphere. I do feel like guests need to be aware that the 2nd bedroom with 2 double beds in the basement has no bathroom access. The other basement bedroom has it's own private bathroom and other guests cannot enter without entering their bedroom. The master on the main floor has a fabulous bathroom and the upstairs rooms each have their own bathroom. A half bath is available on the main floor and the downstairs guests came upstairs to use it. FYI All the information sent out in advance was extremely helpful. Thanks!
- Jeana
09/15- I thoroughly enjoyed the spacious rooms, outside deck(s)and quaint atmosphere. Pretty decent company. You all were very accommodating during the payment and rental process. Thank you!

02/17- I was really amazed just by the amount of space this cabin has. The staff is very knowledgeable and very helpful, no matter what was going on. From the time of booking the cabin all the way through, Campbell helped me the whole way. Thanks, we had a great time!
- Derrick
08/17- Very nice and comfortable for large family and friends. Very good. Helpful staff.
- James
06/17- The home is beautiful, spacious and perfect for large families. There was enough space for people to be in the same room without stepping on each other, however at the same time provided privacy for those who wanted to get away and enjoy the view. Staff very helpful. Had a question regarding the hot tub and the staff assisted immediately.
- Lakisha
10/17- The home was gorgeous with everything we needed. The beds were so comfy and there was plenty of space for a group of friends. Everyone was wonderful! The staff was so helpful when I had questions. I look forward to visiting other properties soon.
- Leigh
07/17- We loved the openness of the kitchen where we could all sit around cook and socialize. We loved the pool table in the loft area, loved the fire pit and the hot tub deck area.......we loved everything about the cabin and will return soon.
- Monica J
03/17- We enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit. It snowed 2 days while we were there and we loved that. Escape to Blue Ridge staff has been very professional and helpful. We chose them over another company before our last trip to Blue Ridge because they were so much more helpful and friendly and easily helped us find the perfect house for our family's vacation.
- Marianne
03/16- We have stayed in this house three times, and it's always great!! We have now rented from your company for years, and you have always been wonderful!! We take an annual girls' trip with sisters, mothers, and a niece. One time, bc of snow, the owners put us in a different house, and took us up the mountain! As we say, you could have said, "sorry for your luck" and sent us home. That is why we continue using Escape to Blue Ridge! So, thank you, and once again, everything was great!!

2/18 - The home was very spacious and able to accommodate 8 of us easily. The views of the mountains from the game room were breathtaking. I would definitely recommend this house! From start to finish, you answered all my questions, took care of my needs, and made me feel very comfortable renting with you. Thank you so much for all your help during this trip!
- Shalonda
3/18 - It had plenty of parking and it was easy to get to and it had so many extras - like the sound bars on the TV's - clearly the owners did not spare any expense - the furniture was very nice. I've used your company many times for family getaways. This was a girls trip and my first time making the arrangements. Everyone was very happy with the cabin. That's a hard bill to fill with 10 women.

06/18 - Spacious and well appointed home. Room for everyone in our party to be together. Escape to Blue Ridge staff is always quick to respond.
