Spring is my favorite time of year in the Georgia Mountains. It’s also one of the best times to book that weekend getaway and enjoy the warm days and cool nights of North Georgia. Those of you in the Atlanta suburbs can spend a weekend in Blue Ridge or Ellijay Ga and put that glow back in your eyes. Get away from the hustle for a day or two. You should be able to find some specials on 1, 2, and 3 bedroom rental cabins. Ellijay is only an hour from downtown Atlanta GA.
As soon as the weather warms up it’s a great time to see some amazing wildlife and the fish are biting too. If you’re real lucky you can even get a glimpse of the native black bears. This is a great time to plan a get together for friends or a family reunion and enjoy some time together with the people you love. Have a barbecue and make all the noise you want in a nice secluded vacation rental in the woods of North Georgia. Warm up the hot tub, pop a cool one and sit back and relax, aah, the good life!
Many rental cabins have decks and barbecues and some even have trendy outdoor stoves and kitchens.
What are you waiting for? We have listed cabin rentals companies with plenty of cabins to choose from. It’s time to celebrate life and forget work, at least for one weekend this year.
Rental cabins have everything you need, kitchens that are fully stocked with dishes and utensils. Bathrooms with plenty of towels. Fully furnished with satellite or cable television and WIFI.
Springtime is a great time because the trees aren’t full and some of these cabins have spectacular views that will be covered up once the leaves come back in.
Visitors from Florida are sometimes surprised how cold it can get in the Georgia hills and mountains. Check the forecast and pack accordingly.
If you rent a cabin you should ask about the heating and air. Some cabins are designed for those that have a sense of adventure. They may not have air conditioning or electric heat in the cabins.
If you have pets or smoke please make sure your lodging choice is pet friendly or allows smoking.
If you want privacy you should verify your selected cabin rental is not in close proximity to other renters. There are plenty of choices for rentals in Blue Ridge, Ellijay, Blairsville, and Hiawassee. Each cabin has its own personality as much as each renter has their own. The right vacation rental is out there, take the time to find it and make it the best getaway ever.
Here at North Georgia Mountain Cabin Rental we like to talk about alternatives to the typical cabin rental from time to time so we can offer something for everyone.

This is also a great place for a honeymoon so newlyweds looking for a conveniently located penthouse suite please take a closer look.

Each year Ellijay is host to the Georgia Apple Festival. You can attend the festival on the second and third weekend in October. The event is held at the Lions Club Fairgrounds each year and presented by the Gilmer County Chamber of Commerce and the Lions Club. Each year they have about 300 booths and displays. Most of them are arts and crafts or food. There is a car show in town as well as a parade to celebrate the Apple Festival.
This year I noticed a few developers and builders were on hand to try to generate some interest in the real estate offerings in Ellijay. If you have a local business or you are familiar with craft shows and have something to offer you should really consider a booth. The amount of traffic that passes through the fairgrounds in just 2 weekends is astounding. Be sure to visit the Harmon Deer Scents booth. That guy is a character.
If you have any photos from the event or would like to write a piece about your experience at the Apple Festival just post a comment.
There are plenty of things to do when you visit the North Georgia Mountains. Some cabins in Ellijay and Blue Ridge are located on rivers that you can float, swim, and fish. For you fisherman be sure you purchase the appropriate fishing license and follow all state fishing regulations.
Tubing – Before you try to float a river ask the locals what type of obstacles you may encounter and where to get out. It’s best to leave a vehicle at the exit point. If you can’t do that then be sure your cell phones work at the exit so you don’t get stranded. Some of the low lying areas don’t have mobile phone reception. Most of all, think safety when tubing.
Whitewater Rafting – There are a number of places you can go rafting or kayaking but the scenic route to North Carolina has some awesome places you can take a guided rafting trip.
Cycling – There are plenty of mountain bike trails in the area for you adventurous riders. Visit Mike at Cartecay Bikes to see if they have any planned excursions while you are in town.
If you aren’t that adventurous then you can just rent a mountain cabin and enjoy the peace and quiet away from the bright lights of the big city.
