The home was perfect in terms of privacy, layout, and amenities. The game room was a big plus and was enjoyed by adults and children alike. We loved the hot tub and the “gates” on the deck were a great idea. The fire pit was wonderful for evening s'mores and relaxation while enjoying the peacefulness of the creek.

10/15- I loved that the large lot was on a creek. We had privacy and seclusion even though there were other cabins nearby. It was great sitting next to the fire and listening to the creek below, so relaxing. The cabin was spacious yet cozy. The open floor plan allowed us to tend to babies while preparing meals in the kitchen. The game room had fun games for all, especially those of us that grew up in the 80's, ie Pac-man!!

08/16- The River Lodge is a beautiful cabin on the Fightingtown Creek. We had a great time down by the creek and close-by attractions. We spent time in Blairsville and Lake Nottley. Kids enjoyed the firepit and making smores. Escape to Blue Ridge employees are helpful, responsive, and professional. While they cannot always solve the problem, they remain professional.

The EBR team was helpful in finding the cabin for us through the reservation process. The reservation process was painless and quick. I especially appreciation the timely electronic communications.

07/17- Location is good. Close to Blue Ridge and other attractions. Layout of the cabin is good. Yard is good for kids. Nice decks and game room. Grand kids loved the game room. Kitchen has plenty of everything you need. Shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc. is a nice touch. Nice towels. My family liked that the loft is not open to the rest of the cabin. Nice steps down to the creek. Have used other companies before and feel that Escape to Blue Ridge is the very best. All agents are very nice, friendly and helpful. When I called about the hot tub, everyone was very responsive. Jennifer came out to check it out and then called for service. Not sure if it was working when we left. I will definitely use Escape to Blue Ridge again!! Thank you for all that you do!
