Where you’re visiting the mountains, “where to stay” is just as important as “what to do.” I highly recommend a cabin from Mountain Top Cabin Rental. We secured a three bedroom/three bath house, with a gorgeous wrap-around porch, spectacular views, a hot tub, WiFi, magnificent windows, and a great number of other creature comforts. Mountain Top lists about 50 luxury cabins for rent, sleeping 2 – 12 people. There are pet-friendly cabins, cabins with hot tubs and/or fire pits, and cabins on the water or with majestic mountain views. You pick what is best for your family.
Our cabin experience was surreal. It is difficult to “one-up” the magic of the Blue Ridge Mountains, but it happened for us. Sitting on the deck, taking in the morning view with a cup of coffee….enjoying the family in the hot tub, after a long hike…grilling steaks with the mountains in the background….it was unmitigated delight. The “extras” here also helped create a relaxing vacation – the WiFi, the comfy feeling of the cabin with woods and leathers…a king size bed that felt more like my bed at home than an “hotel” bed…the glamorous master bath…the pool table….on and on. Our family fell in love with Blue Ridge. We vowed to return several times a year. We *might* try a camping adventure on one of those weekends away, but if we’re not roughing-it, we’ll be using Mountain Top Cabin Rentals again.

Our cabin was not on the lake, but Mountain Top Cabin Rentals does offer accommodations on Lake Blue Ridge, which we included in a recent Explore Georgia article: 3 Georgia Lakes Perfect for a Family Vacation.
Disclosure: Thank you to Mountain Top Cabin Rentals and Fannin County Georgia for hosting my family and me. We sincerely appreciate the complimentary stay in our cabin, but it in no way swayed our opinion. No one paid me to share about how much we adore Mountain Top Cabin Rentals, and that we will be life-long customers, for sure. #keepingitreal
