This mountain home had it all. Scenic views from the deck and hot tub. The kitchen was fully equipped. Kids got the basement which had several beds, its own living room, pool table ping pong table darts and TV. The 3 main bedrooms were nice and quiet away from the living room and kitchen. The yard had a huge fenced in area for the dogs. The area down by the river was nice and flat for roasting smores by the fire pit and fishing. If you are thinking about the Elijay area, this house is a must!

We had an amazing stay in your beautiful home! Everything we needed was thought of- down to the shampoo and soap! The view to the river and watching the deer was incredible- and we mostly found ourselves outside by the covered patio/fireplace. Thank you for your hospitality-and for the Christmas dcor! Great way to ring in the holidays after such a crazy year. We hope to return!

The team at Blue Sky are wonderful, upbeat and positive. We enjoyed Biking, hiking, tubing, & visiting nearby towns
Perfect place for couples or a family. The downstairs game room was the perfect place to hangout on a rainy day. The deck offered views of the Cartecay River and a spot to view the wildlife. All the rooms were inviting and comfortable.

What an amazing property that checks all the boxes!! We had such a wonderful time playing tournaments of pool, darts and ping pong in the basement.
The creekside is gorgeous. Exactly what we needed. Can't wait to come back in the summer months to jump in the water. We also were lucky enough to see 10 deer passing through the property around 5 - 6 everyday. The hike just outside of the neighborhood, The Cartecay Loop Trail, is HIGHLY recommended!!

Reserving the property was easy & communication was immediate. The cabin & views were incredible & the outdoor fireplace & fire pit by the river is where we spent most of our time. I would definitely recommend as a place to stay with multiple guests because you have 3 floors to spread out.

Our family just finished a wonderful week of vacation! Being from Florida, we loved the area - the mountains, cool river, and beautiful weather. We especially enjoyed having a fire in the outdoor fireplace on these "cool" nights. The cabin was perfect for us and we thouroughly enjoyed our stay.

This was definitely the best cabin we've ever stayed in! Gorgeous view and comfy inside. We recommend visiting Three Sister's Fudge and The Sweet Shoppe in downtown Blue Ridge. The swinging bridge was lovely as well. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cabin!
