I’ll take any excuse possible to visit Blue Ridge in the North Georgia Mountains. We love the hiking, the waterfalls, the restaurants…all of it! So we were so jazzed to learn about this new accommodation only a few miles from downtown.
Here are 5+ reasons why you and your family should check out this amazing Blue Ridge Treehouse in Blue Ridge, Georgia.
BLUE RIDGE TREEHOUSE
This luxury treehouse rental is located at Bear Claw Vineyards in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Blue Ridge, GA. During your stay at Blue Ridge Treehouse, you will be in the trees overlooking a working vineyard with views of the vineyard and creek that run through the property.
The town of Blue Ridge is less than four miles away, so you can enjoy nature and still be close to downtown shopping and activities.
IT’S A TREEHOUSE PEOPLE!
Yes. A real treehouse. Unlike others, this is a real treehouse in the woods. Not even a wood cabin “in the trees.” Nope, this is a genuine treehouse, with a real tree growing right through the center of the house! I mean who doesn’t love tree houses?
It was built by The TreeHouse Guys from DIY Network TV show, and their impeccable craftsmanship and creativity shine!
WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE BLUE RIDGE TREEHOUSE
I think my favorite part of the Blue Ridge Treehouse was the slanted windows and frames. It reminded me of Dr. Seuss meets Salvador Dali. The details are astounding.
You’ll enjoy a huge deck with outdoor lighting, a gas grill, and a sweet table and chairs. Inside, you’ll find all the comforts of home…with a nice size living room with heating and cooling, ceiling fans, wifi, and electricity.
The kitchen does not include a stove (that’s OK – Downtown Blue Ridge is PACKED with amazing restaurants), but you will find a small fridge, microwave, Keurig , and dishwasher. And don’t worry — it has a full bathroom!
There is a wine fridge, games, a leather sofa (with a queen sleeper bed), and coffee table. You’ll find a TV (not that you need it in beautiful Blue Ridge) and surprisingly plenty of space to spread out.
You’ll also see the growing tree pushing its way through the flooring. Follow it with your eye and you’re directed to the second floor with a queen bed and more lighting. I love the windows up on the second floor too. And from there you can see the tree push right out of the roof. It’s definitely a sight to see within the Chattahoochee National Forest.
When we visited, the evening brought storms, and there was nothing so relaxing as the patter of rain on the roof. And no – that tree did not leak water into the treehouse. You’re safe and secure!
IT’S IN A VINEYARD
The treehouse is located in Bear Claw Vineyards. They are operational. And the view…is astounding!
While you visit, you are free to roam the vineyards, see the grapes, play in the creek, climb the bridges and enjoy the seclusion and beauty.
There is a wine fridge in the treehouse and it’s stocked with wine. You are free to drink it, but it is $20/bottle in cash or checks. I recommend bringing your own.
IT’S GREAT FOR FAMILIES
You’ve probably heard about the “romantic treehouse” in Buckhead with a hot tub and other adult amenities. Or the Canopy Blue Luxury Treehouse on AirBnB with a hot tub, fire pit, and swing bed. We’ve wanted to stay at those for awhile, except…it’s super expensive, you have to stay two nights, it’s right in someone’s backyard…and they don’t allow kids.
That has its perks. And you can certainly stay at Blue Ridge Treehouse as just a couple…but we appreciated that they allowed children.
Upstairs is a queen bed. Downstairs, the sofa makes into a comfy queen bed for the kids.
The spiral staircase to the second floor is thin and doesn’t include risers. I would be timid with a toddler…probably wouldn’t let them on the stairs. But there is nothing else that would prevent me from taking the kiddos.
The owners left us with all the fixing for s’mores, as well as plenty of board games like Scrabble and Candy Land.
THE SHOWER IS AMAZING
Is there a bathroom? YES! Is there ever a bathroom!!
This futuristic-looking device is a steam shower with massaging jets! It has lights, and music, a seat for shaving your legs…I will admit to taking more than my share of showers here. And the boys loved it, too.
It’s spa-like…and will spoil you!
ONE NIGHT IS OK
Usually, with special places like this, you have to stay 2+ nights. And let me tell you — if you can, you want to!
But, we couldn’t…so I was glad to learn that a one-night reservation is fine. And there is no extra charge.
As of writing this, a stay here starts at $245 per night. You’ll pay more for weekends and holidays. There are no additional cleaning or service fees, either…like you might have for an AirBnB. (But you will have to pay hotel tax; that’s just the law.)
LOCATION TO ADVENTURE
Blue Ridge Treehouse is close to several fun things to do with the family!
The Aska Adventure Area is located a few miles out of the City of Blue Ridge, and is riddled with hiking trails including large sections of the Appalachian Trail and of the Benton MacKaye Trail. The Aska Adventure Area is the home of the Toccoa River, a favorite summer activity with hundreds of tubers enjoying this beautiful natural wonder.
