Is your idea of the perfect vacation relaxing in a beautiful secluded place, surrounded by nature but close to activities the whole family can enjoy? The Blue Ridge, GA cabin rental Sunshine Mountain offers that and so much more.
Located on a mountaintop in Mineral Bluff, this lofty retreat boasts breathtaking 360-degree views from its wraparound decks, screened-in porches and every window. You can watch the sun kiss the mountains in the morning as the fog rolls off the valleys below you, and revel in the beauty of the sunsets and millions of stars at night as you feel the stresses of everyday life melt away. Nature surrounds you at every turn, even right outside the door: deer come to visit every day to be fed.
Featured in Log Home Living magazine in December 2009, Sunshine Mountain is spectacular inside and out, boasting unique architectural details and professionally decorated with high-end furnishings throughout. Its massive hand-carved logs, vaulted ceilings, two-story stone fireplace, cherry hardwood floors and laurel branch spindles give it character, and its rustic furniture and designer lighting envelop you in comfort.
Speaking of which, you’ll slumber in blissful comfort in each of the cabin’s four bedrooms, one of which has a pair of twin bunk beds, perfect for teens and kids. The other three feature queen beds, flat screen TVs with DVD players, ceiling fans and beautiful patchwork quilts. The master bedroom has log furniture, a spacious closet, a balcony and bathroom with double sinks, double shower, and sitting bench. The upstairs and downstairs bathrooms feature tub/shower, and there’s a powder room on the main floor. Need extra sleeping space? No problem: there’s a pullout sofa in the basement big enough for two.
That downstairs room is geared toward socializing and entertainment, with a large flat screen TV, DVD and Wii, and plenty of games and movies for your enjoyment. There’s also a shuffleboard table, electronic dartboard, board games, card table, and exercise machine in the game room.
Upstairs in the main living room, you can sit back in the sofa, recliners, or rocking chairs before the fireplace in a room made more cozy and atmospheric by rustic accents like carved bear lamps and a faux cowhide rug. Take the stairs up to the loft and you’ll find a flat screen TV/DVD, two gliders and an office desk. The cabin is also wired for the Internet and has an intercom system.
Sunshine Mountain has everything you need to prepare gourmet meals, as the kitchen is fully stocked with stainless steel appliances, two coffee makers (drip and Keurig-style), griddle, waffle iron, Magic Bullet, toaster and toaster oven, and a crockpot. You’ll also find a trash compacter, Amazon Echo sound system, and a carving of a woodland fairy on a support beam above the island, crafted by a local artist. There’s seating for ten at the dining table, plus space for four at the breakfast bar.
You’ll find ample seating outdoors, too, in the porches off the living room and master bedroom, upstairs, the basement and the side of the cabin, where the hot tub provides you with awesome mountain views as you soak your cares away. Then, you can warm yourself by the fire pit or fire up the gas grill and dine under the stars.
Sunshine Mountain’s other amenities include a laundry in the basement and driveway. But its most important asset is the way it will make you feel: refreshed, relaxed and happy. It’s a feeling that will linger in your memory long after you leave!Amenities
