Big Canoe Lodge – the name says it all. The gleaming canoe suspended over the great room represents the best of what the North Georgia Mountains has to offer. Here, nestled deep in the woods, you’re connected to the streams, lake, and rivers around you, situated on two acres of land with gorgeous long-range vistas. If you’re looking to hang your “Gone Fishing” sign, this is your dream destination.
This beautifully appointed North Georgia cabin rental, with maple hardwood floors and striking architecture, is professionally decorated with comfort and style throughout. You’ll feel surrounded by nature in every room, with wildlife and forest-themed accents like the locally crafted antler & wagon wheel chandelier in the dining area, wooden “bouquets,” the colossal antlers adorning the double-sided stone fireplace – even the bathrooms have the authentic lodge look with antler lighting and Aspen bark mirrors.
Have your morning coffee on the cozy screened-in front porch with the sunrise and floor-to-ceiling windows provide breathtaking mountain views. When everyone’s ready to head to the river, grab your gear and go. From incredible trophy fishing to swimming and tubing, kayaking and of course canoeing, your days spent in the water will float blissfully by. After an exhilarating day of outdoor adventures, soothe sore muscles in the dry sauna, or head out to the hot tub for a nice long soak.
Make dinner in the stylish gourmet kitchen and you won’t miss a minute of conversation – the island seating area allows the gang to keep you company while you prepare the day’s catch to share indoors or outside among the trees. There’s plenty of room on the 60-ft. deck for everyone to enjoy the million-mile views. After dinner, snuggle up around the deck’s fireplace while watching the outdoor TV, head down to the fire pit for marshmallow roasting, or simply relax on the porch swing with a glass of wine.
Kids young and old will enjoy playing pool in the game room. There are also board games, chess, checkers, and Wii to entertain the crowd. Upstairs, the loft area can host the perfect sleepover party with bunk beds, a pullout sofa, seating area with TV, and even its own full bath.
On the main level, the luxurious master bedroom suite will treat you to a sumptuous Aspen canopy bed, double-sided fireplace, walk-in closet, and steam shower. Step onto the balcony for a last look at the stars. The main floor’s queen bedroom has a hand-carved log bed and a full bath. The first level also offers beautifully appointed king and queen bedrooms.
Here at Big Canoe Lodge, you’ll feel at one with nature, in the middle of an awe-inspiring wildlife highway. How soon canoe get here?
03/19 - Big Canoe was awesome! The living area and kitchen were huge with plenty of room for our group. Kitchen was also well stocked with all the items you need to cook for a large group. Bedrooms are large enough and beds were comfy. Everyone we spoke to or had personal interaction with from Escape to Blue Ridge was great! They made sure we had everything we needed or expected. We had a door that was stuck and someone was there within the hour to fix the problem.
03/19 - The house was very clean and inviting and everything you would need was available. The scenery was amazing and the outside seating areas are so relaxing. The staff was very nice and helpful from the initial phone call in December with the booking process. I was so thankful they suggested I did not drive the 12 passenger van and they were correct.

There were French touches and some items of sophistication which gave a really nice balance to the carved bears & casual mountain pieces. Home was picked for the king master bed & brouquce mirow over the fire place and we were not disappointed. For the price having the steam shower & sauna was delightful. The quality & size of living room TV was a nice surprise. We were treated well, all questions answered, all problems resolved quickly.

Enjoyed the information provided by your companies emails before and after our visit. Thank you for your professional team who contributed to our enjoyable stay.

07/15- We enjoyed the views from both the back deck and front porch. Great to relax with a cup of coffee. Loved all of the dishes, I love colorful fun dishes. Plenty of things to do even when inside on a rainy day. Decor was great. Their was enough top of the line linens and the bedroom setups were perfect for us. We had from myself, 69 year old great-grandma to youngest 18 month old and all ages in between. Great Cabin. We have shared pictures with many friends. Including my friend the bear just outside the front porch one morning. This is the third time we have rented from your company and have never had a problem. directions are great, and at Christmas when we needed wood, one call and it was delivered in an hour or so.
06/15- Loved the peaceful setting & the homes decor was very nice.
04/15- This house was a "10" all the way. Absolutely beautiful and extremely comfortable. We have used Escape to Blue Ridge for four rentals over the last few years and they truly have their act together. Everything works as it should.
04/15- Loved it! Probably our favorite (this is our 6th trip). Infact, we want to book this same cabin again this summer....BUT, the only thing and it's kinda a big thing...the air is set to not go any lower than 72, although it was cool and we didn't need it this trip....our daughter has a certain type of asthma and we must leave our air at home to 68 at all times. In the summer we'd have her with us, can this be adjusted?

The great room space when we arrived with the canoe is just beautiful. The steam shower is a cool feature. We loved having a wii for the kids to use.
A great spacious, clean cabin with lots of entertainment provided and with a great view. A little far out and secluded. Good, timely info provided. When dishwasher didn't work the problem was rectified immediately.
Cabin was fabulous. All amenities were excellent. Appliances top-notch, views spectacular. There was a leak in the dehumidifier before we arrived, had been repaired but downstairs carpet should probably be replaced soon. Beds very comfortable. Staff was very helpful with info, directions, etc. I want to especially thank Kathy, and Denise (if I omit anyone, I apologize in advance). They were so helpful and supportive when I was in the midst of a medical work-up from previous cancers. Thankfully, that was a false alarm and made my week on Black Ankle mountain that much more enjoyed.
