About the property

Beautiful Cabin, Hot Tub, Sleeps 10, WiFi, Pet Friendly

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 and are also 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.

Private, Pet Friendly Cabin In Blue Ridge Georgia
average rating of 4.35 based on 20 reviews

The cabin was great! Very clean! We had a group of 10 and had plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and two sisters and myself came up with our children for 6 days. We had a great time. Location is near many trails and stream access if you are planning to fish. Also relatively close to shopping. Very peaceful and quiet. It rained several nights while we were there and the rain on the tin roofs was very peaceful. The hot tub was awesome for our sore muscles after hiking to several waterfalls. The kids loved long creek falls so if you are going to hike, I def recommend that Trail. Also close to a lot of cool restaurants. We had a great time and I would recommend this cabin.

After a 2-day drive we were greeted with a worn, poorly maintained, broken run-down, filthy, roach infested cabin. COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. VRBO photos are not representative of what you will find. Couches in VRBO photos have deteriorated leather finish that should have been discarded long ago. Many, many other deficiencies, too many to list here. WOULD NEVER CONSIDER RETURNING TO THIS CABIN.

Beautiful cabin!!!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is beautifully decorated and maintained!! The owners are easy to deal with and quick to respond to questions. They provided great directions to get to the house and I love that it is pet friendly! Few suggestions would be make sure you arrive during daylight, navigating the road for the first time in the dark is scary!! Also the kitchen does have basic cooking utensils but I would suggest bringing a frying pan if you will need it. The only one there is small, sticks and has no handle. Location was great, house was peaceful and relaxing!! Never traveled more than 40 min to do anything, everything was really close by. Would highly recommend to anyone!!

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.

Perfect getaway, peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

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. =)
