About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom on Fightingtown Creek

Creekside Veranda is one of the best-kept secrets among Blue Ridge GA cabin rentals. Surrounded by lush foliage and the soothing sounds of Fightingtown Creek, this breathtaking setting is the perfect place to get back to nature. This home is so close to the river’s edge it feels as if the current is flowing around you. Large picture windows offer an abundance of natural sunlight as well as views of the sparkling creek and tranquil field, reflecting a sunny green essence that brings the woods and river right inside.

Custom renovation by Keith Sumner, including the majority of the furniture, gives this luxurious cabin a new yet authentic rustic feeling. Professionally decorated, with custom rough-hewn logs, reclaimed barn siding and laurel branch railings create a wonderful, warm coziness throughout the home.

Awaken each morning with your coffee out on the upstairs master bedroom’s private balcony overlooking the creek. The spacious king bedroom on the first floor has seating on the porch, facing the creek as well. Then head out for a stroll along the water’s edge. Afterward, come back and lounge on one of the deck’s rocking chairs in the shade with an iced tea.

Make a casual lunch for everyone to eat inside amidst the kitchen’s gorgeous stonework, or take lunch out on the deck to enjoy in the fresh air. You can also take advantage of the deck’s gas grill to make an easy meal for the group day or night.

Head to downtown Blue Ridge or take advantage of the area’s many activities, including a canopy zip line tour within walking distance from Creekside Veranda’s driveway, or put on your waders and fly fish in the year-round, stocked trout stream for which Fightingtown Creek is so renowned. Then again, you may be tempted to stay and relax right where you are, listening to the water rush by as you daydream. Spend a perfect fall afternoon in the outdoor pavilion watching football on the flat screen TV – the wood-burning fireplace will keep you warm when the air starts turning crisp. Bring your basketball with you and shoot some hoops on the basketball court. On a rainy day, cozy up on the main room’s comfy couch near the fireplace, reading a book or watching a long awaited movie on the DVD player. After dinner, cap off the day with a dip in the hot tub right at the deck’s edge, with the creek flowing by and the stars above.

Turn on the fireplace in the master king bedroom on the second floor and snuggle up while watching TV before bed. Or indulge in the beautiful rustic bathroom’s stone dual shower with a multi-jet shower tower to melt all your cares away!

In addition to the two kings, there’s also a rustic queen bedroom on the first floor. Amish furniture adorn this room with a log headboard and layers of luxury atop the bed.

From the moment you arrive at Creekside Veranda, your senses will awaken with the sights and sounds of nature all around you. Feel the days drift by in total peace and tranquility, and watch your cares simply float away.

Wonderful cabin right on the creek

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible experience at Creekside Veranda. The cabin was super nice and clean when we arrived. It's a very private setting way back in the woods. We enjoyed eating outside and listening to the creek flow. We had a great time and would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for something in the Blue Ridge area.

Just the kind of vacation we love.

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin, well appointed, the proper remoteness and seclusion

for a relaxing stay. No light polution so the stars put on a great show,

the creek was soothing to listen to and it was nestled in hills and woods

about 12 to 15 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. Several excellent restaurants in the area and a really fun train ride along the Toccoa River. Also a couple of very scenic drives and lots of hiking trails. It was a special treat to meet the very nice and sociable owners, Ellen and Dan for dinner. We definitely reccomend this lovely property.

Great Cabin with a secluded feel.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was great. The way it is situated feels like you are miles away from everything in the woods. In reality it’s very close to everything you need. The interior was beautiful and the wrap around porch was great for relaxing and listening to the babbling water. We truly enjoyed the outdoor fireplace and sitting area.

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a very relaxing, albeit very cold, New Years at the Creekside Veranda. We were greeted with 3 chickens on the front porch --- very nice touch! Enjoyed the hot-tub and the cozy fireplace. Will definitely return during a warmer month.
