Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cabin in Blue Ridge - Big Buck Retreat

Beautiful Cabin, Hot Tub, Sleeps 10, WiFi, Pet Friendly, Football Package On TV

Visit our cabin, Big Buck Retreat, located in the Aska Adventure Area. It’s an easy drive into shop-filled Blue Ridge along the scenic Toccoa River with breath-taking views in any direction.

Big Buck Retreat offers a relaxing atmosphere perfectly suited for couples, friends, or extended families. This beautiful cabin with thought after furnishings throughout provides you with all the comforts of home in a very private setting with peace and quiet that will make it hard to leave.

Conveniently located to all the action in the North Georgia Mountains, you will be spoiled for choice when deciding how to spend each day. From hiking or trophy fishing to tubing on the river, sailing on Lake Blue Ridge, or riding the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, you can fill your stay with as much or as little as you’d like to take in. There is also plenty to do without ever leaving this cozy cabin. Play card/board games, watch a great movie or check out the latest football game on TV. In the evening, grill on the deck or enjoy the hot tub and end the evening with a nice fire in the fireplace. Make special memories in a peaceful setting at this mountain retreat.

With three bedrooms upstairs and two bunk beds downstairs, you can bring up to six adults and four kids.

The main level has a fully equipped kitchen that features granite counter tops and brand new stainless steel appliances, the dining room seats six (plus a high chair for our smallest guest), living room with two leather couches and a 40” flat screen TV, DVD, stone fireplace, bathroom with tub and access to the covered porch with two rocking chairs and game table. Also on this level are two bedrooms with full size beds and one bedroom with a queen size bed, all bedrooms come with plenty of storage space.

On the lower level of the cabin are two bunk beds, built-ins for storage and a bathroom with shower. Sliding glass doors lead out to the amazing deck where you can find a table that seats six, a five person hot tub and a fenced area for our four legged guests. There is an easy to use charcoal grill that will put the perfect sear on any steak.

If the chef needs a well-deserved break, you’re only minutes from the fabulous Toccao River Restaurant on Aska Road. Downtown Blue Ridge with unique shopping and dining is only 20 minutes away and easy to reach.

Big Buck Retreat is located in a very quiet area on a wooded 1.6 acre lot providing tremendous privacy and the perfect vacation getaway!

About Carina Whitaker

We are Brian and Carina Whitaker, we have a cute little son who was just born in July 2015 and are parents to 2 amazing sweet black labs Toby and Steele. We enjoy our free time together at the cabin.

Carina Whitaker purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Carina Whitaker chose North Georgia Mountains

We love the peaceful setting of our cabin, with lots of wildlife around. You can sit in the hot tub watching deer wandering 50 feet away from you. You can rest, relax and recharge your battery from the hectic life at home. With the two decks, three bedrooms, there is enough space to spread out while still being close together.

What makes this cabin unique

Located in the Aska Adventure Area this property offers all the excitement the mountains have to offer. Horse back riding, Kayaking, tubing, zip-lining, mountaineering, shopping, hiking, trout fishing, train rides, waterfalls, apple orchards, restaurants, etc... You can enjoy the peaceful, pretty scenery, and beauty of the Aska area.

good but not great

  • 3 of 5

I had communicated with the owner of an early arrival after driving 9 hours overnight. After an agreement, we arrived and waited about 2 hours because the code given was wrong. The sheets in one of the bedrooms had stains on them. There were dead bugs and webs on the sills and an old amazon prime box that was sitting on the outside porch. We could tell it had been there a really long time. It made us question if the placed was even cleaned. Also, the towels provided had that smell when they have been left in the washer too long. Overall, the place is cozy and had all the necessitates. It's a great location with a food lion close by. We had a wonderful time. I would not recommend this property.

The property is exactly as described, easy to get to after the first drive.

The view is pretty and the rooms are beautiful put together.

Carina adds her personal touch with the beautiful hand made owls.

Can't wait to head back up there in the fall!!

Great place to get away from it all....

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for a quiet get-a-way/bachelorette weekend. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. The mattresses were all very comfortable and we had plenty of space for seven ladies to sleep. The upstairs covered patio was perfect for us to hang out and the hot tub was a nice for a break on the downstairs patio. Would definitely recommend to for a group of friends or 2-3 couples.

The cellular service was a bit spotty, so be prepared for that on the drive up and while at the cabin. The WiFi provided worked great.

Thanks for letting us enjoy your cabin. =)

Awesome Cabin and Value and close to everything in Blue Ridge!

  • 4 of 5

The BIG BUCK Cabin of Aska Road in Blue Ridge was perfect for our men's bible study weekend. The accommodations were roomy, clean and well maintained. The Hot tub was very relaxing and the bunks were spacious for adult men to be comfortable. We were able to accomplish all of our goals of building deeper friendships, relaxing, quiet spiritual time and yet getting out and seeing nature and the beautiful landscapes! Will have to return again soon!

Great Retreat for Hikers

  • 3 of 5

We had a really nice relaxing stay in this lovely cabin. It is close to so many of the waterfall trails we wanted to do. Carina was very helpful and easy to communicate with. The absolute quiet surrounding us was wonderful.

A diamond in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Great location and the perfect way to spend a few days relaxing during Spring Break! We arrived a bit early before check-in time as the owner messaged us letting us know it was ready. The cabin was beautiful and even better than expected based on the pictures. The fireplace worked flawlessly and the portable mp3 sound box in the kitchen let us relax to some good music while cooking or sitting on the second deck porch drinking our morning coffee. The hot tub really hit the spot after walking the trails to the swinging bridge(look it up it's amazing). Big Buck Cabin is very conveniently located near Blue Ridge, some very close by hiking for Waterfalls, and many smaller lakes to explore. The cabin has everything you need and all you really need is food to cook. Stop in blue ridge first and load up before going to the cabin. The cost for the cabin was very reasonable and enticing compared to other options in the area. Thanks again Carina and I'm pretty sure we'll be coming back very soon!
