Situated on six TOTALLY PRIVATE acres, Tukanu is the perfect mountaintop cabin for your next vacation. If you are looking for seclusion, relaxation, and gorgeous views, this is the place for you! Without ever leaving the property, you can hike several trails that lead to a beautiful whitewater stream. From the rocking chairs on the covered porch, you can bask in the beauty of the Rich Mountain Range, as well as Cohutta and Bear Den mountains. Conveniently located just up the mountain from Ellijay and approximately 15 miles from Blue Ridge, you are near the only golf course in the county, as well as horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, river tubing, quaint restaurants, and shopping. Have you wanted to bring your "city" dog to the mountains with you-but were afraid he might wander off? You can relax at Tukanu. Not only have we provided a spacious indoor crate with soft bedding for your buddy's comfort and safety, but we have taken care of his outdoor fun as well! The wrap-around porch is gated, so your dog can stay outside with you and not be tempted to roam. And at the end of a fun day in the mountains, your best friend can sleep on his own bed in your master bedroom! Or are you looking for a perfect romantic getaway? Tukanu's upstairs master suite has two screened porches (one with chaise lounges and one with rockers), along with a shower for two and an oversized Jacuzzi. From the pillow-top king-sized bed, you can enjoy the gorgeous mountain views. If you want to bring some other couples along, there is another master suite on the main level with a king-sized bed, full bath with double vanity and direct access to the wraparound porch. On the terrace level, there is another king-sized bed and full bath. (Queen-sized bedroom is on this level as well.) Terrace level also provides a second kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator/ice maker, sink and microwave oven, and a second den with 52" plasma television and leather furniture. Custom log furnishings throughout, with signature Donna Sharp quilts on the bentwood beds, make Tukanu the perfect combination of luxury and rustic retreat. With over 3,000 square feet and a large parking area, there will be plenty of room for everyone!

Tukanu was one of several we were considering but honestly I cant imagine any others being what this one was. We had everything we wanted and even some unexpected bonuses! We had our best family vacation ever and this property was truly a big part of that, thank you so much for getting in touch with the owner to allow us the third dog and helping to make this all happen for us.

The cabin was warm and welcoming when we first arrived. There was music playing, the hot tube was already set to 102* and there were plenty of lights on. The cabin was beautifully decorated and we had plenty of space for 8 people. We all really enjoyed the amenities and the location of the cabin offered plenty of privacy. There was no sign for "Woodring st" that caused slight confusion. The only other minor negative comments that I could mention are that the water pressure seemed to be low in all the showers and the microwave was unusually loud, often was the loudest thing in the kitchen.

Jody from Blue Sky Rental called to check to see how our stay was going. They let us know in advance when one of the amenities would be unavailable.
We so enjoyed our stay! Very comfortable arrangements for all 7 of us and a baby!

Everything about this cabin was exactly what we wanted! We came as a group for a working weekend retreat and even though we had a lot of people, there was plenty of room to work, break off into teams with so many different seating areas inside and out and then also to relax in our down time and go for walks and enjoy the trails and relax. Especially loved the wrap around porch and special touches throughout. I would definitely bring our team back here again

Truly a terrific stay. The House was amazing and really worked well for our family with children and our nanny. The only request I would have had was to the owner to invest in an Amazon tV box. We brought our own, but for children its truly a must right now.

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home!
Tukanu was the most perfect house for our family. Everyone had their own private areas. I was nicely surprised by the pretty Christmas tree/decorations! The house had everything we needed and wish we could of stayed longer! We will definitely be back!

This cabin was amazing! It was definitely worth the money. We stayed during the off season so the price was perfect...don't think we'd ever stay during the high time though. The price is too much. But we had so much fun we talked about doing it again next spring break! It was great that we could bring the dogs and they loved it too! So much property to explore. We did a lot of hanging at the cabin and eating in. But the days we did venture out, everything was a decent drive away so the cabin is in a great location.
Our only complaint would be the mattresses need to be changed over and the hot tub as well. We had some difficulty getting it to work so I think it's been well used and run the course of it's life.

We searched for the perfect cabin for our annual girl's trip. We usually go to Pigeon Forge, but decided to go to N. GA. this year and we were well pleased. We loved Ellijay and Blue Ridge and the apple festival was great! Our cabin was perfect and accommodated six ladies very well. It was perfect with a perfect view! We would definitely go back to this cabin!!

We rented two cabins for the week which were across the road from each other, making it very convenient for our entire family to visit. The cabins and localities were beautiful. We enjoyed the Blue Ridge Railway, tubing, restaurants, shopping in Ellijay, and our drive to Atlanta to see a Braves baseball game.
