The Overlook cabin is a place in a storybook setting where stories are also in fact, created. By far, this property is in one of the most private settings in the North Georgia Mountains. You’ll travel along a sharply winding, steep gravel road that will rekindle imaginings from childhood fables which took place in secret woods. However, this road is easily mastered and your reward rests in the charm and beauty of The Overlook cabin.

Perched high above the Aska Adventure area, this home has panoramic mountain and distant lake views. It sits in total seclusion, yet is only 10 minutes from town and walking distance to the Benton McKaye trail.

The Overlook is full of character with a warm and welcoming front porch, side stone chimney and adorable second floor dormers. Inside, the living area features an open floor plan with gas log rock fireplace and rich leather furniture. There is a wraparound deck with plenty of seating inviting you to the outdoors. A particularly happy spot in the home is the loft that overlooks the great room on one side, and has its own deck with rocking chairs on the other. Here you can relax outside as well or have fun at the loft’s card game table.

Back downstairs, on the terrace level, the game room is replete with a billiards table and a wet bar. A four-person hot tub and a personal sauna allow perfectly pampered treatments as if in your own private spa.

Lovely bathrooms continue the serene spa feel and are conveniently located – the lower level one is even wheelchair accessible. Three bedrooms, one on each floor, offer a king and two queen beds; all outfitted in high thread linens and plush comforters.

When it’s time to retire, crack open the beautiful bedroom windows to hear the soft distant sounds of nature from your perfectly secluded spot within it. Breathing in the cool mountain air, the Sandman begins to take over. As you recount the day’s lovely story, a smile draws sleepily across your face in gratitude for this perfectly happy ending.

Remote and private. The home captures all of the Blue Ridge Mountains experience. The rustic feel of the home brings you straight into the era of the true mountain side. The roads make you feel as though you are traveling back in time. The home offers so many things. The view from the hot tub is fantastic. You can also take a walk on a trail or enjoy a 30 minute sauna. Feel like playing some pool? Billiard room and bar offer a break before dinner. It is truly a couples get away. A place to download and reconnect in the privacy of your own world. We felt at home right away and the welcome gift was very generous. The trip into town offered a host of local shops. We were fortunate enough to get to partake in the local trade fair. So many vendors and lots of shopping. The sunrise is amazing!! If you ever wanted to see a better sunrise besides Destin this is the place!

The home was clean, no clutter on the tables or in the closets. The appliances and the fireplace all worked well with no issues. All windows had workable blinds. Great place for a peaceful getaway. Escape to Blue Ridge handled everything very nicely. We had no issues with the house and appreciated the staff friendly assistance to setting everything up prior to our arrival.

The location and the view was absolutely spectacular. Your company and its employers are fantastic. Willing to help and go the extra mile to ensure that your customers get what they asked for. Would definitely use y'all again if we ever go back to Blue Ridge.

- Anand , Posted: 12/24/2020
We loved this cabin!! I asked my husband what he liked and he said everything! lol We loved the pool table downstairs. Love both of the tubs. The main level bath tub has jacuzzi jets and the one upstairs is an eagle claw tub. Kitchen was very well stocked. We loved the hot tub upstairs! I love how it's on a smaller deck with more privacy. The futon upstairs is very comfortable, for sitting at least. We didn't make it to the air hockey table or the poker table but if we had more time we definitely would have used both! The view is amazing! Our last night the sunset was pink! It was absolutely beautiful! I booked this cabin very last minute, less than 24 hours before we checked in. I was so happy Escape to Blue Ridge had cabins available last minute, and the lady called me back very quickly after I requested the cabin online. I will definitely go back to this cabin and would definitely recommend!

11/15- Beautiful view--very clean and comfortable. From reserving the cabin to answering any questions we had, the staff did a great job. When initially driving to the cabin, we were concerned that we were lost and so we called the office and they had Lisa call us back. She stayed with us on the phone until we got there. We really appreciated that!!

02/15- WE LOVED THE LOCATION!! Although there is another house very close, there was no one staying there while we were there, so we felt secluded. Never saw a car or another person the entire time there. Loved the view. We Went to the cabin and never left til checkout. Enjoyed the fireplaces and pool table! Roadway was easily maneuvered with 4x4, even with snow on it. We've always received great customer service from the folks at EBR. We love the convenience of the check in/check out procedures.

08/16- Stunning view! Beautiful design inside home gives it a real mountain cabin feel, which is exactly what we were looking for. Love the 3BR/3BA layout with each living space having its only floor. Love the remoteness and tranquility of the environment!  As far as a company to work with, high quality service. Top notch. Resort luxuries inside a private cabin. Will do business with them again!
- Ashley M.

06/16- The view. After the short rain we had, i went outside and the steam coming off the trees and a rainbow behind it. Marvelous. The kids loved the pool table, hot tub, and the air hockey. Smores in the firepit. A great getaway from the hussle of everyday life and enjoy life. From the reservations until we left. Everyone was awsome. We will be using your company again.

If you own a 4WD this is a good place. The road is steep, gravel and dirt with bumps, sharp turns and precipices. Hope you don\'t meet another vehicle. We got stuck and had to back up and get a run at it. When we finally made it up, we enjoyed the place a lot.
- Peter L.
08/14- We loved the cozyness throughout.
- Norman

05/17- Very well maintained beautiful cottage, great location, wonderful view and great amenities only make sure your car is all wheel drive. The last one mile is slightly scary, when you walk on the road it's quite spacious but when you drive first time it's a little scary but the cabin is beautiful.
- Kiran
03/17- We loved the seclusion, the cabin looked like the picture representation and we enjoyed  the pool table. For our first interaction with the company, I think it was very good. Would definitely do this again.

08/17- It was very clean, absolutely beautiful! The best part to us was the sunrise. Sitting in a hot tub watching the sunrise, I can't even put into words. Very easy and informative.
- Timothy D.
06/17- The view was spectacular. The hot tub is a definite plus. The layout of the cabin accommodated six adults comfortably. We enjoyed making SMORES in the fire pit. The number of rocking chairs meant that we could all sit and enjoy the peaceful view on the back porch. The linens and towels were very clean and made it pleasant to shower and sleep. The washer and dryer were wonderful additions. Each step of the rental process was easy and convenient. Everyone I spoke with was friendly and helpful.
- Teresa
09/15- Overall privacy of the cabin and the indoor cleanliness was immaculate.
- Denise L
02/17- There are not enough words to describe how much we've enjoyed our stay. It was simply amazing. We enjoyed everything about this beautiful home. Thank you again.
- Isileli
We spent a week in the Overlook for our honeymoon and had an amazing time! The views were gorgeous and the hiking was beautiful. We loved the hot tub and the comfy feel of the cabin. The only drawback is that another house is being built right next to this one. Though it would have been perfect seclusion before, that has changed with construction. Updating the cabin's description would be a good idea, so it's not a surprise. Other than that, had a great time and would love to come back to Blue Ridge!
- Paige

06/18 - I liked the proximity to town and the long-range mountain views. Furnishings were comfortable. Sauna was a nice bonus. Kitchen was well equipped with knives, pots & pans. I especially liked that the grill had a dedicated gas line! Excellent. I've rented cabins from you for a number of years and have never been disappointed. Good job keeping up the quality of the cabins, the customer service, and the service.

- Kimberly

07/18 - Easy to rent and get situated when arriving. Very professional, high attention to details.
