Sips & Views
Kick back at YOUR Blue Ridge, GA, cabin with a 6-pack of locally crafted beer or a growler filled to the brim with a smooth stout or zingy IPA. North Georgia Mountain breezes brush past as you sip and chat with friends in the rockers. Add a home cooked meal from the fully equipped kitchen or a couple of pizzas delivered to your cabin door. Or fire up the gas grill for a relaxing time outdoors.

Blue Ridge is also home to some great wineries and vineyards if that’s more your style! Or you can enjoy hard cider from the family friendly Mercier Orchards or check out a moonshine distillery.

After hitting up Blue Ridge craft breweries, you’ll appreciate a comfy and inviting space to return for the night…or a nightcap. Roast marshmallows around the firepit, soak tired muscles in the steamy hot tub, sip by the fireplace, or host movie night on the big screen TV. For more fun, shoot pool, whip up cocktails at the wet bar, or walk down to the Toccoa River. When you’re ready to hit the hay, your king suite awaits!
