About the property

Beautiful Cabin, Hot Tub, Sleeps 7, 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 seven people.

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 lump 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 two cute little kids as well as two amazing sweet black Labs Toby and Steele. We enjoy our free time together at the cabin.

Why Carina Whitaker chose Cherry Log

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...

nice quiet cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the cabin. It has very nice decorations and is very private. It has a good location- about 15 min drive to blue ridge and close to many hikes. Owners are very helpful and responsive. I would change couches or at least covers for the couches in the living room- they were somewhat of a pain. Otherwise, we really loved our stay and hope to come back.

Quiet and secluded

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a very quiet and secluded area, but also close enough to town for us to pop in for a bite to eat. There were several places to do things on the way into town. The house had every thing we needed for our stay. It was just my husband and I for this trip, but we do plan on bringing our kids with us next time. The owners were very quick to reply when needed. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for a quiet getaway.

Beautiful Woodsy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family to meet for Thanksgiving. We were 6 adults and 3 children, and there was room for everyone, we were able to get out do some beautiful hiking on the surrounding trails. We cooked our Thanksgiving meal there and the kitchen had all the necessary dishes we needed for our dinner. We played games, enjoyed the woodsy surroundings, enjoyed the hot tub and overall it was a great Thanksgiving getaway!

Very nice! Deep in the woods, quiet and private.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the property. it was clean and had all the essentials. It was for 10 people but we only had 6 so the place was more than spacious. It would have been perfect if there was a shower curtain in the basement shower.

Summer in the Mountains

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time in Blue Ridge. We brought our 5 foster children with us for a week long summer vacation and they loved it. They didn't like the bugs so much....but what do you expect from girls. The Jacuzzi was a big hit for them. Overall great experience.
