About SonRise Retreat
If you’re seeking a peaceful refuge, SonRise Retreat offers a tranquil, secluded setting in picturesque Mountain Tops, just south of Blue Ridge.
This luxury cabin’s name is a play off of “Sunrise Gap,” the unique view that the house overlooks. Every morning, the sun rises through a gap in the mountains, creating spectacular scenes as the fog lifts and the sunshine burns off the morning dew. The vistas are expansive, with trees displaying vibrant seasonal colors – witness budding trees in springtime, flowering plants in the summer, a blaze of colors in the fall, and an occasional white blanket of snow in the winter. Have a coffee on the sun deck overlooking the valley, lounging on a gliding chair or rocker. As the sun ascends, the shaded screened porch provides a cool, breezy place to lounge.
Day or night, the spacious decks provide a great place to read or chat while enjoying the views. You’ll naturally be drawn to one of the cabin’s main features – the incredible handmade stone fire pit area overlooking Sunrise Gap.
The cabin’s upscale décor features a wildlife and Western theme, including charming touches like a horse saddle stool, cowhide rugs and canoe-shaped bookshelf. Each room gives off an exceptional warm glow from the glossy tongue-and-groove pine. The great room’s comfy sofa surrounds the real wood fireplace and makes for a perfect place to enjoy the fire or a movie.
Meals are easy here. There’s plenty of counter space in the roomy kitchen, whether you’re making waffles, using the sandwich maker or the baking stone for pizza or a giant cookie. Enjoy your meals in the spacious indoor dinner table or venture out to the screened in porch to the eight person picnic table. Then watch the sunset melt away on one of several gliders or take in the views while playing dominos, cards, or board games on the authentic wooden hand-made domino table.
Venture to the den and game room downstairs to play pool, foosball or just relax, watching a game. The gas fireplace creates a cozy welcome when finishing a dip in the hot tub just outside the door.
Each bedroom offers luxurious mattresses and extraordinary rustic furniture. The king master suite upstairs has its own secluded, screened-in porch with a hammock and two rocking chairs for a view with total privacy. There’s also a full-sized futon in the adjoining loft space. The main floor queen bedroom suite has a high, hickory canopy bed with stepstool and matching décor. The lower level bedroom features a striking queen-size Aspen log bed with moose and elk-themed bedding and décor.
SonRise Retreat was designed as a peaceful place for those looking to escape the daily pressures of life. As the sun rises to greet you each day, you’ll feel the restorative powers of this special sanctuary.
Head out and explore the mountains. Whether hiking, tubing or horseback riding, you’re just minutes away, and only a five-minute drive to downtown Blue Ridge, making this one of the most convenient locations in the North Georgia Mountains.

07/17- Loved the scenery with a great view of the mountains, and although the cabin is not secluded you are far enough away from other cabins to have the feel of complete privacy. The cabin was beautiful and had everything we needed. We were able to cook and grill our entire stay. The personal balcony on the master suite was a huge hit with us. It was a wonderful way to relax with the hammock and the views. We will definitely be back. Easy booking transaction and were very helpful with all questions we asked. We will definitely be booking again in the near future.
07/17- Sonrise Retreat was a great home. We especially loved the screened in back porch. We had a very energetic 16 month old grandson with us and it was so comforting to know he could run around without us having to worry about him getting too close to the slats. It was also nice for our 2 month granddaughter to be able to sit out on the porch with us and not get bitten by bugs. The jacuzzi tub was very relaxing. The pool table was a great hit. Some enjoyed the hot tub also. It was very close to town which was a great plus. The staff was great and answered all questions quickly and were very personable. We will be using the company again.
06/17- We really enjoyed the hot tub and the pool table. We loved the big picnic table that we could sit at and eat on the porch. We would definitely rent this place again. Everyone was very friendly and able to answer my questions.

02/17- Sonrise Retreat was amazing. My husband, myself and my best friend and her husband enjoyed our Couples Trip 2017 here and we really enjoyed ourselves. Our husbands had a blast with the pool table and my bestie and I enjoyed the kitchen, preparing food and hanging out. We will return. We loved our stay. Thank you. Escape to Blue Ridge is a wonderful company. A few of my friends are renting next weekend and in a couple of months. Your cabins are beautiful and give the feel of home. The staff is very friendly and helpful, which is always great for business. We will continue to be renters of Escape to Blue Ridge cabins.
02/17- The cabin was clean, fully stocked, large, and cheap for what we got. I would definitely stay here again! Fresh clean towels, dish soap and paper towels that lasted the entire 3 days. Good company. Loved my stay.
01/17- The cabin has amazing views. The fire-pit and hot tub are great extras for the family to enjoy. The cabin has great space and layout for everyone to feel comfortable and not crowded. Escape to Blue Ridge provides excellent customer service. Always polite and answer any questions you may have.
12/16- We loved being able to sit in the living room as a group, look at the beautiful view and have a fire going. Everything was very clean and well organized. Wonderful, attentive, helpful staff.
11/16- We found the home to be easily accessible and cozy but roomy enough to not feel crowded. The amenities i.e. pool table, fire pit with a nice seating area, wood fireplace, screened porches and views made the stay a pleasure and just what we were looking for. We would certainly stay here again in the future. The mountain and Blue Ridge area were almost completely litter free and beautiful.My family has been visiting the North Carolina mountains near Bryson City for the past six years. We could not rent the home we are most fond of this year so we decided to look for a change. Finding your website on a Google search was a blessing. Your staff was a pleasure to deal with, being very patient, polite and attentive. The drive to Blue Ridge, although somewhat longer, was full of beautiful countryside. The area was convenient to shopping and attractions. We all have the mutual consensus that we will be back next October.
10/16- The gas grill and the fire pit were fantastic. The company was very helpful.
08/16- Well, we thought having a live black bear greet us at the doorstep when we got out of our vehicles was an extremely nice touch of authenticity. I had already gone into the cabin with the two ladies when the other guy came in and showed us a picture of a bear that had been standing just a few feet from the steps. At first he thought it was one of the decorative wooden bears that some folks put in their yards, but then he started moving. My friend came in and told us about it, showing us a picture he was able to take. We looked off the porch and the bear was still in the yard. We got a couple more pictures of him. Nice way to start a stay in the mountains. Unfortunately, we didn't see him any more the rest of the week. We would have loved to have seen him again (from a distance!).
Loved the cabin. All the bedrooms were well appointed and comfortable. Our favorite part of the cabin was by far the screened in deck. We (two couples) spent probably 60% - 70% of our waking hours out on the deck, sitting, reading, talking, and taking several of our meals on the picnic table on the deck. Our intention when we booked the cabin was to slow down and relax, and that was definitely accomplished. We have the same cabin booked in November with our family, and we're already excited about going back!We LOVE booking through Escape To Blue Ridge! I think this was our fifth or sixth time using them, and they are always professional, courteous, friendly, and more than helpful. We've only had one instance in all our rentals where we had an issue of any kind (a gas grill wouldn't start). We called the office and they had someone out to us within an hour or two, he took care of the issue quickly with no interruption to our plans for the weekend. ETBR is and will continue to be our "go to" company for mountain cabin rentals.

04/16- The feeling of home was overwhelming. It had every amenity we were looking for! The 'man land' was great for watching movies by a warm fire on cool nights. The hammock/canopy porch was perfect for a peaceful refuge. The hot tub was clean and comfortable. The owner put a lot of thought and love in this place and it was evident in the decor, amenities, and necessities. The beds were so comfy! The most amazing part was the feeling of seclusion even though the neighbors are near and the town close. There was a beautiful view out every window of mountains or nature. There were so many great things about this home that I could go on forever! Thorough without being overbearing! You handled the rental perfectly. The house sells itself! However, the added touches of the gift bag, the info book, the informative things to do emails... we found there is so much to do that we did not know! We will be coming back... and we will do business again with you! Thank you so much!
