The serene drive through the Aska Adventure Area is the perfect introduction to your stay at Southern Sanctuary. Arriving at this secluded retreat, with over two acres of land to yourself, you will instantly feel like you're a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. Breathtaking views will greet you, and you'll be enveloped by a sense of peace and privacy.

This cozy, two-bedroom cabin is imbued with rustic Southern charm, from Tiffany styled lamps and silk flower arrangements to a host of other thoughtful details, such as flameless candles that are pre-programmed to light and welcome you home in the evening. Its comfortable setting, complete with supple leather furniture, will fit you like a glove.

Start the day with a full Southern breakfast of eggs, sausage, grits, biscuits and gravy — it will be a breeze with the gourmet kitchen's many amenities. You'll need the fuel for exploring all of the activities nearby! 

Fixing for a little outdoor adventure? Experience the rush of whitewater rafting on the Ocoee or loll down the Toccoa by tube. Take in the amazing fall colors with some sight-seeing or head to the boutiques and galleries in downtown Blue Ridge.

If you're hankering for some R&R, kick back at home on the covered decks. Lounge in the rocking chairs or enjoy some sweet tea and pecan pie at the convertible picnic table while watching the sun set among spectacular mountain views. After dinner, mull some hot cider and head out to the fire pit on cooler autumn nights for some fun and spirited conversations.

Any signs of rain won't dampen your spirits. The comfortable living room is perfect for unwinding in front of the remote-controlled, gas fireplace while listening to relaxation CDs on the Bose Wave Music System. Watch a movie or play some Wii or darts. You can even continue your daily workout routine on the Total Gym exercise equipment. 

When you're ready for a cozy night's sleep, you'll be snug as a bug in bedding with comfortable linens. The spacious master bedroom on the main floor is elegantly decorated with rich wood carvings on a luxurious, four poster king-size bed, and the large downstairs master offers a plush queen bed. Wind down with a good book on the leather recliner in the bedroom's reading corner, or step out through the French doors for a dip in the hot tub.

Southern Sanctuary's casual elegance offers a romantic backdrop for a couples' getaway or the setting for family fun. Enjoy Southern hospitality and all the fixins of a great mountain vacation in a cabin that's sure to steal any Steel Magnolia's heart.

Very nicely kept. Super nice to have upstairs and downstairs bedrooms. Great for couples. Loved the view and the yard space.

The view!! The deck was amazing! We also enjoyed the fire pit, the quiet and the central location to all the hikes we wanted to try.
- Nate , Posted: 08/07/2020
The clear view of the mountains, especially the sunset from the main level porch. The home was very cozy and comfortable furniture.

The cabin is very well maintained and is well equipped with everything to make your stay enjoyable
- Robert , Posted: 06/19/2020
It was spotlessly clean and well stocked. We loved the sunset which set in the same direction as the back porch was facing. The fire pit was huge and with benches. The hot tub was clean and worked perfectly.

11/18 - Beautiful views of the mountains and very clean and spacious. This was my second time staying at an Escape to Blue Ridge cabin and I always have a great experience! Will continue to book with the company for any future trips to Blue Ridge!

04/19 - Southern Sanctuary: Very comfortable and well stocked with kitchen items! Beautiful porch views. We've been booking with you for many years--always have a great time when we getaway up North!

08/16- The home itself, Bed, HotTub, porch and the scenery were all favorites. It was a very nice place to get away. We enjoyed ourselves every minute.

Although the house was beautiful, as indicated by the photos on line, I feel that they were very deceptive. Luckily we were only three, not more, because the house is quite small...quaint. The photos on line make it seem much larger. If I were a larger party it would have been cramped. The game room, exercise room etc were all one room with the exercise equipment pushed into the corner.\r\nThere was NO GAS GRILL as indicated, but an electric George Forman grill, very small, NOT CLEANED outside. The cord was missing, and there was food on the ground around the base. Very disappointing, as we planned on grilling all four nights. The kitchen cutting boards were not clean and still had food on them. The sunset view in the photo, while beautiful, must have been taken with a telephoto lens between the trees, because I would describe the view as wooded, with a small break to see the mountains and sunset.\r\nThis was very disappointing, as we have rented for years through EBR, and it has always been perfect.\r\nWe will continue to rent through you, as it is our hope that this was a one time incident..

08/16- This was my second time staying @ Southern Sanctuary. This time was better than the first! The cabin makes you feel like you are not a 'rental guest,' but I walk in and instantly feel I am 'home.' I absolutely LOVE this cabin. I rented it by myself for a personal vacation in order to pursue and work on personal goals. I spent the majority of my favorite place in the cabin...on the upper porch in a rocking chair. The views are magnificent. If you are looking to get away to get refueled....this is the place!!! Great customer service! Everyone was very helpful, kind, and friendly! Daniel (facilities staff member) was super kind and friendly! Smitty was professional.

01/17- I can't say enough!!! Everything was fantastic! From the beds to the linens to the couches, decorations, dozens of movies, books, The hot tub, all the seating on the porch, the kitchen which includes just about everything imaginable you would need to whip up delicious meals. I can go on and on and would still not convey how wonderful this cabin was! Cant wait to come back! Our impression of your company is that you are leaps and bounds better and ahead of any cabin rental company in the area. After our stay I would not even consider another.

02/16- We enjoyed the privacy of this property, the kitchen amenities, the hot tub, the gas fireplace, the king size bed, the satellite TV and Internet service. We were well informed by the company before the trip. We had one maintenance issue with the gas fireplace during our stay and the management company was responsive and had it fixed that same afternoon.

03/16- Hot tub...the patios!! Everything was great!
- Timmothy
08/15- The location was lovely--accessible but remote. It was very peaceful-I think I saw only two vehicles pass by on the gravel road during our weekend. We also made good use of the porch and its view of the mountains. Sunsets were spectacular. Loved watching the bats doing their good work at dusk and the sound of the cicadas spoke of summer. Being a lover of all creatures I also enjoyed observing the birds, a couple of different lizard species and some gorgeous spiders (outside the cabin!)and deer. We were very pleased with our interactions via phone and email with this outfit--seems like a very well-run company with good customer service at its heart.
- Sara Louise
07/16- It was so quiet. My family and I loved the surrounding area and the countless deer we seen. Answered any questions I had. Staff was always will to talk. Love that service
- Timothy
08/15- This beautiful cabin nestled deep in the mountains was a home away from home. The moment we walked into the cabin with the glowing candles and soft music we immediately felt relaxed. The views are absolutely stunning. The cabin was very clean, well decorated and comfortable. Everything we could have needed was right there in the cabin. We enjoyed our five night stay and left feeling revived.
- Steven
09/15- I loved everything about the cabin. It was fully furnished. The kitchen had everything u could need and more.the balcony was great as well. The company did a great job making us feel right at home!

04/17- I loved the cabin so much we will definitely return and return to that particular cabin. It was beautiful, clean and cozy! I've visited other cabins in other states and that by far was the best!! I give it a 15 on scale of 1-10. The staff was extremely nice and very helpful.
