Luxurious lodge w/ private hot tub & amazing mountain views!

If you have high expectations for your next Blue Ridge vacation, you'll experience the height of exhilaration at Sky High Lodge. Stunning panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains will surely take your breath away. While just 10 minutes from historic downtown Blue Ridge (on all paved roads), you'll feel a million miles away while losing yourself in North Georgia mountain vistas as far as the eye can see. Boasting four bedrooms and three and a half baths, Sky High Lodge is the perfect place for friends and family to reconnect, recharge, and relax.

Upon entry, a breathtaking surprise awaits as you round the black iron custom design of mountain scenes camouflaging the staircases to the top floor and the terrace level. Once you round the corner, you'll be in awe of the luxurious setting and the incredible vistas out the wall of windows.

Two spacious living areas in an open floor plan on the main level provide respite from a weary world while panoramic mountain views will leave you breathless, but refreshed. To sit in coziness before a beautiful stone gas fireplace and marvel at a layered mountain view will calm even the most restless of spirits.

What's nearby:
Luxurious Sky High Lodge is located in close proximity of Highway 5 (within 10-15 minutes). During the summer months, you're within 30 minutes of Ocoee River whitewater rafting (where the 1996 Summer Olympics were held) and Toccoa River tubing and kayaking. Supremely located between the newly rejuvenated town of McCaysville and historic downtown Blue Ridge, you can visit Mercier Orchards, the South’s favorite apple orchard only five miles down the road. Offering bakery delicacies, gourmet foods, fresh farmers market fare, and gift shops, this is a must-see! During harvest months, participate in hay rides and produce-picking events that will create unforgettable memories with your family and friends. The town of Blue Ridge offers great shopping boutiques, trendy restaurants, breweries, and galleries. McCaysville offers riverwalk shops and restaurants, breweries, and antiques.

Breath talking view , open floor plan , open kitchen plan and well equipped kitchen appliances

This is a very nice home with plenty of room for large families/groups. Location is ideal as it sits in the area between Blue Ridge, GA and McCaysville, GA/Copperhill, TN, so you can be in either location in a matter of minutes. Almost every cooking/grilling/baking pot, pan, utensil, etc., you might need is provided, and having a pool table provided a lot of late-night fun.

There were multiple maintenance issues that should have been taken care before our arrival, but after a few phone calls most were resolved the first morning. The grass was about two feet tall, and was not mowed while we were there, so using the firepit was not an option for us.

Our biggest complaint about this home is the view... the main reason we decided to stay here. The pictures make it appear like there will be vast, unencumbered, views of the surrounding mountains, but that is no longer the case. These pictures were clearly taken many years ago before the trees have grown up outside the deck and have completely changed the magnificent view shown. Vacasa should allow pictures to be added to a review, because if we would have seen the ones we took, it probably would have changed our mind about booking this home. We contacted Vacasa and showed them our pictures, and they agreed the listing needs to be updated.

P.S. The listing also states, “This rental is located on floor 3”. This is a mistake on the Vacasa site, as this is a stand-alone, three story home.
Manager response:
We apologize for any misunderstanding regarding this listing. We attempt to be as transparent with our listings as possible and provide accurate and current photos, amenities lists, and descriptions so guests can make an informed choice about what they are paying for and make the right decision for their needs. We encourage guests to reach out with any questions or concerns before booking, as we are happy to help. We hope that the refund that you were given has helped with some resolution for the issue you experienced.

Beautiful cabin with plenty of space for a large family. The views were amazing! Pool table was a great addition. Close to all area attractions.

My wife and I have been coming up to NW GA for 5-6 years now to rent a cabin and recharge before the new year. Sky High Lodge has been, by far, the best cabin we've been in. The views alone are amazing.
Tom H. Jan 2021
Large enough for the whole familyl The snow on CHristmas eve was a great touch--should do that every year. Only minor complaints: no TV in family room which should be great place to get together and watch holiday movies, no rail on staircase from 2nd to 3rd floor. Other than that it is a great place. We will stay there again if we can schedule it.
Manager response:
We are so happy that you and your family were able to enjoy the home on Christmas, Tom! We appreciate you taking the time to leave your feedback on your stay. Since you have checked out of the home a railing has been installed on the stairs from the second to third floor. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

This home actually has 6 bedrooms, 2 king beds upstairs and 4 queen/full beds downstairs. We stayed with 5 couples and it was plenty of space. The large kitchen/dining area and 2 living/seating areas made the perfect space for our group to cook/eat & hang out together. We also really enjoyed the deck and the amazing views, especially at sunrise. We hardly left the cabin at all in our 3 night stay. In fact, we had planned to eat dinner in Blue Ridge our last night, but opted to spend one more evening at the cabin instead.

The only drawbacks were that all the downstairs bedrooms share one bathroom, which presented a bit of a challenge. Also, the main TV/blu ray player are downstairs with the pool table and there isn’t enough seating down there to accommodate more than 2-3 people. Moving the TV upstairs or adding seating downstairs would be great.

Also, I’ve seen a couple reviews that mentioned cleanliness issues. During our stay the house was cleaned well except for the numerous flies/ladybugs (live & dead) that collected in the windows and on the floors. We found one window that had been left open and that was probably the cause.

One last thing to note, it isn’t mentioned in the listing, but the cabin does have a small fire pit out in the yard. Bring your own chairs for that because there’s no seating.
Manager response:
Hello Kendra, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We have sent your feedback regarding the tv and blue ray, seating, and the issues regarding flies and ladybugs to our local management team to address with the owner. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Such an amazing weekend getaway! The views are breathtaking! The cabin was fully equipped, clean, spacious, and cozy. Looking forward to booking again in the future!

Our family enjoyed spending a week at this home. It is very spacious with plenty of room to spread out. The mountain views are spectacular! A caveat would be if you have older persons in your party, it is challenging to go upstairs without a handrail on the staircase.
Manager response:
John, thank you so much for taking to write a review for us! The owners loved your idea of adding a handrail on the staircase. They will be adding that to the home soon. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again!

I booked this cabin mainly because of the beautiful pictures, only for it to look even BETTER in person! The views are breath taking. Any questions we had were very quickly addressed and answered. There is so much room and anything you may need is there.

The View and The Rooms Where Absolutely Amazing
Gabrielle S. Mar 2020
This cabin is beautiful! Honestly pictures don't even do it justice. The decor and furniture makes the space feel cozy and like home. The views are breathtaking. There is enough space for everybody! Sometimes in large rentals there isn't even enough space at the dinner table for everyone. This cabin has two tables which make the space compatible for the amount of people it is meant to hold.
My experience with the rental agency, however, is not so great. Before checking in the communication was fine. The issue was the day of check-in. I arrived at the house on time for check-in, but the code for the electronic key pad did not work. I was on the waiting queue for 40 minutes before speaking with someone. This individual attempted to reset the code, but this did not work either. The representative said they would contact the owner of the home and assured me that they would call me right back. After 20 minutes and no call, I called Vacasa yet again and was on the waiting queue for another 40 minutes. The second representative was able to give me the code for the alternate lockbox which contained the house keys. The whole process took over an hour and half of me sitting in the driveway with groceries in the car while the other guests also arrived and waited in the driveway. The owner never called. I don't know why the first representative didn't provide the information about the lockbox. This whole ordeal was really frustrating and made for a stressful start to our vacation.
Manager response:
Hello Gabrielle, thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at this home and it's charming and picturesque decor. We truly apologize for the difficulties you encountered in reaching a member of our team, and in getting inside your cabin. Our phone queue was exceptionally long at the start of your stay as many guests were calling with concerns about the Coronavirus. We are glad that our agents were able to assist you in getting inside the home and that your stay was enjoyable.
