Description Description
Life can certainly be crazy. So it’s no wonder many people seek refuge in the peace and quiet of the mountains. For one couple, the allure of a secluded mountain home was too great to resist. Nestled in the hills outside of Blue Ridge, Georgia, their home is a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of daily life and is ready for you. Welcome to the Otter Side, a peaceful and genuinely serene retreat.

The home, crafted with great care and attention to detail by a local builder, reflects the owner’s passion and dedication. They genuinely admire the unique custom mantels and paneling made from timber sourced from the property, as well as the distinct bar top that adds character to the cozy interior.

Staying in this tranquil setting is a true pleasure, with abundant wildlife adding to the experience. The cabin's namesake, a playful river otter, is a regular visitor to the nearby stream, offering hours of entertainment for everyone as you observe it fishing. In addition, the soothing sound of the babbling brook that runs by the property is a constant source of relaxation, whether taking advantage of one of the outdoor screened living areas or allowing it to lull guests to sleep at night.

Enjoy ample natural light, comfortable furnishings, and wonderful details throughout, including wood ceilings and beams, luxurious kitchen finishes, and even a glass walkway to one of the upstairs bedrooms! Even the bathrooms are luxurious. Every shower is unique and constructed differently. The basement shower is a steam shower, so it is similar to a mini sauna, and the master bathroom is finished with heated floors. From the game room, complete with a PacMan arcade, to the outdoor areas with their gas grill, hot tub, and fire pit, there is a place every single family member will be able to enjoy!

Despite being secluded, the home is conveniently located! Enjoy being just a 15-minute drive from downtown Blue Ridge. You will love all of the fun surrounding you, as well as the friendly locals and the welcoming ambiance of the town. There’s something for everyone in Blue Ridge.

For those seeking peace and serenity in nature, The Otter Side is a dream come true. The calming sound of the babbling brook, the playful wildlife, and the tranquil seclusion of the surroundings make this home the perfect refuge and the perfect place to escape.

We loved the cleanliness, the options of games and activities and the nice linens. We loved the multiple seating areas and the hot tub! Nice luxuries included in this home. What a beautiful house! We would definitely come back.

Beautiful property. The sound of the creek is relaxing and has easy access. This is a luxury rental! Immaculately clean. House is decorated tastefully and modern. Our party of 6 plus a pet were very comfortable. Each bedroom had its own en-suite bathroom plus a half bath on main floor. All the tv’s are huge, and have Direct Streaming as an option. Main level screened in porch TV was wonderful to watch the Braves. We enjoyed the fire pit and Weber gas grill. I will rent this property again. Absolutely fabulous!

We celebrated Spring break in this cabin. We loved the cabin. We have stayed every year in Blue Ridge area and this is one of our favorite cabins so far! The kids had a blast in the yard! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful place with us!

Everything was amazing. This was absolutely the best cabin I have ever seen in my life. Everything was perfect, clean and the decor was breathtaking.

Jeffery N - Posted: 1/10/2024
This cabin was amazing and my entire family enjoyed it! We tried to take advantage of all of the amenities at least once. We loved the deck space and outside fire pit as well as the hot tub and game room. There were great spaces to be together as well as areas we could spread out when we didn't feel like socializing. The kitchen was amazing and well stocked! We will definitely be back!
Amy N - Posted: 10/3/2023

We couldn't have enjoyed this cabin more! From all the spaces, amenities, and seeing wildlife daily....mama dear and her babies love to cross in back and front of the house. The Otter Side met all our expectations and then some!

Kelsey H - Posted: 9/27/2023

Beautiful home.....We enjoyed everything about the property. So cool under the fan outside on the deck. Enough TVs for all the ball games with opening weekend. Thanks for allowing us to stay. Hopefully we will be able to return soon.

We came up here with friends and family to celebrate a 50th birthday! Amazing home....owners thought of everything. We couldn't have picked a better home to stay in. We had such a great time relaxing in this cabin. There were so many well thought out places to hang out.10 out of 10! The setting outside is magnificent and we can't wait to come back. Thank you for opening your home to us!
