Rusty Rooster

From $199.00 Per Night

View: Stream/Brook Location: Blue Ridge
3 Bedrooms 3 Baths Sleeps 8 Yes

Picture the peaceful solitude of a Georgia mountain cabin rental, hidden in the woods with sunlight filtering through the tall trees. Close your eyes, and the only thing you’ll hear is the soothing sound of the stream that flows through the property year round. It’s like being in a fairytale forest, and it’s the magical atmosphere you’ll find at Rusty Rooster (formerly know as Above the Brook). Secluded and private, yet just five minutes from downtown Blue Ridge, it’s convenient to everything but feels completely far away from it at the same time.

Inside, the cabin is bright and airy, mostly pine and decorated in rustic, cozy style with comfortable furniture and old plank floors. A gorgeous stone wood-burning fireplace is the centerpiece of the main living area, with a 48” TV on the beautiful cedar mantel above it. The well-stocked kitchen features wood cabinetry, black and stainless electric appliances, blender, toaster, hand mixer, electric teakettle, crockpot, griddle, drip coffeemaker, and the dining table seats six.

You’ll dream in comfort in your choice of three cozy bedrooms, each with private en suite bath, 28” TV, full size closet and ceiling fan. There are king beds in the main level and upstairs master bedroom, which has a vaulted ceiling and bathroom with shower. Downstairs bedroom near the game room has queen bed and twin bunk beds. In the game room, where there’s a 46” TV, air hockey, foosball, darts, and board games for your amusement.

The cabin is designed for outdoor living, with a gas grill on the main deck with plenty of seating including a picnic table, loveseat, and rockers, and on the lower level deck, a seating area and a hot tub with room for five. There’s a fire pit with benches and a path to a bench beside the creek. 

As lovely as it is, you’ll want to explore beyond the property, and there are many options nearby including hiking trails, tubing on the Toccoa River, wine and beer tastings, picking fruit at Mercier Orchards, riding the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway and of course, the shopping, dining and a great park for kids in downtown Blue Ridge. If you love antiques, shops abound there and in neighboring towns like Jasper and Blairsville. Also, you can enjoy jet ski and pontoon rentals at Lake Blue Ridge or relax at the marina bar with local music.

Rusty Rooster also provides WiFi, cable on every TV, a washer/dryer, a highchair seat and pack ‘n play, and gravel driveway. And you don’t have to leave your canine best friends at home. You’re welcome to bring two well-behaved dogs with you to enjoy your very special vacation.

Great weekend! We enjoyed our stay at the Rusty Rooster! Property was very clean and so convenient to downtown Blue Ridge!

Great family spot! This was a great cabin for a family getaway! There was a lot of room for everyone to spread out while still having lots of activities to bring us together. The cabin was easy to locate and very clean and comfortable. We loved the game room, board games and hot tub for family fun. We also enjoyed sitting on the porch enjoying the beautiful view. And it was great that we could bring our dogs! We were sorry to have to leave and want to book again.

We love the close location to town but also it's away from hustle. The kids love playing in the stream in the back.

I am a home builder and love seeing different types of craftsmanship and interior decoration. The interior of the home had a very comfortable and relaxing feel. We loved the home had everything we needed for our stay. The fire pit and creek were awesome.

The hot tub and fire pit were nice touches. The sleeping arrangements in the rooms were also a great setup for our group.

We loved the wooded setting of the cabin. The cabin was nicely furnished and extremely clean. Having a bedroom and bath on each floor allowed for privacy and the beds were comfortable. Plenty of hot water for 6 adults to take showers. We could be in downtown Blue Ridge within 7 minutes.

The location was awesome. The cabin was very homey and met all our needs. We enjoyed the fire pit and the creek behind the cabin. Loved the cabin was decorated for Christmas. Loved that wood was supplied for the fireplace and fire pit.

We loved this house and the location. It was super close to downtown blue ridge, and plenty of trails/waterfalls. The best part about the house was its property, it was private and quiet. Great place for kids we were able to play in the creek, and walk around/hike around the creek. Highly recommend for kids and family to have a place to go relax, and you don't even have to leave the house.

I enjoyed every bit of this home! I loved the property, the brook down below, the fire pit, and of course all the beautiful trees! The home was so cozy, it felt like home! The hot tub was a great added bonus! All the activities in the house kept the kids entertained for hours!

Quiet and peaceful outside no noise.

The beds were very comfortable, usually after a stay in a hotel my back hurts. My back did not hurt at all after sleeping here. We loved the hot tub.
