I had been wanting to take a family trip to a
Cabin for sometime & found out about this cabin from my brother that had stayed last year & loved it. Once we arrived pictures did not do it justice ! It’s a beautiful property, it has so many amenities, & so spacious ! Everything was beautiful & so clean! The house was very clean ! & there is enough space for several family members to be comfortable, there are plenty of ways to entertain yourself in the property from board games to movies even a PlayStation. There is a full kitchen ( and a Walmart nearby to get groceries ) & a working grill. We even made a little bonfire outside to make s’mores. The house even has a working washer / dryer which had some detergent & dryer sheets available so we were able to wash our clothes before heading home. It was a wonderful getaway from the city life. We definitely plan to visit again.
Awesome cabin with real world connection. Roomy, good appliances, nice view and close to plenty of things to do.
We had a fantastic weekend at Moonshine Hollow. The cabin was extremely clean and it had all the amenities we could want. We had a peaceful, relaxing weekend with beautiful fall weather and enjoyed our mountain getaway. We will definitely be back and recommend to all our friends.
The cabin overall was nice however the issues that I had were the cleanliness of the cabin upon arrival it appeared that everything was nice and clean but when I began to do an intense walk through we found that the master bedroom's bathroom shower was nasty with soap scumb and about four different kinds of human hairs o
in the shower that we had to scrub and disinfect that was the first sign of the cabin not being cleaned secondly there were old maid playing cards that were under the sofa and loveseat not out of sight but at the edge very visible and if cleaners had cleaned should of seen very clearly when I swept them up the dust attached was very thick. If these things were left uncleaned it leads me to believe cleaning was not a top priority. But as I stated the cabin is a nice structure.
Hi Shelia! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we are sorry for any oversight as this is not common nor indicative of our standards. We will pass your comments regarding our misstep in cleanliness onto our management team as we retrain our staff to meet our expectations. Thank you!
Great cabin in a great location. Everything was perfect. Will most definitely be going back.
We really enjoyed our stay at 185 Moonshine Hollow. The cabin was very neat, clean and comfortable. The scenery was just beautiful. I especially enjoyed the rocking chairs on the porch early in the mornings. We just wish that we could have stayed longer.
Good cabin in a great location. Minutes to downtown Blue Ridge and Mercier Orchards, and only 20-30 minutes to hiking on Aska Rd. Slightly miffed that some loud water sanitation process began running at 3:30am on Sat morning and proceeded for 90 min that woke the cabin up and kept us awake that whole time. Seems like it could be scheduled for another time or vacationers provided an override ability to delay to more convenient time.
Loved this cabin, EXCEPT for the basement level which had scorpions crawling on the floor, even up the wall behind the bed and INSIDE the sheets! It's a beautiful cabin but I paid for a 3rd bedroom/mancave for my grandsons but they COULDN'T use the space because of the scorpions. Paid too much $$ to have to go purchase an inflatable bed to put upstairs, thus, grandsons could not enjoy the nice mancave! Owner/Vacasa should make sure to schedule regular pest control. They were clearly crawling right under the basement double doors. Shame. It is a lovely cabin. Enjoyed the upstairs. Don't bother with the hot tub, it's seen better days. Also, we did not have a bit of trouble getting up the driveway as some have suggested. Would not stay in this particular one again, sadly.
Thank you for staying with us! We apologize for the issues experienced with the unwanted presence of scorpions. We are disappointed to see that this concern was not reported to us during your stay as we would have been happy to send our team out to spray. The home has been thoroughly inspected and none were found at this time. It was a rainy week which could have led to their presence during your stay. Our team will continue to monitor the home and take necessary measures as needed. Thank you for your valuable feedback, Susan. We hope to have an opportunity to host you again!
Really nice and comfortable 2 level cabin. The master suite is on the lower level, bath has a walk in shower (no tub). This floor also houses the washer/dryer and the water system which ran a system refresh at 4 AM that seemed to last a long time. The location is quiet and peaceful. Warning: The road leading to the cabin is rough and may not be suitable for low rider vehicles (leave the sedan at home) crept up on us the first time we drove up. All wheel or four wheel is probably better. That said I would recommend this cabin as a get away and would stay at it again.
Cabin was okay. It's a nice floor plan. It could have been cleaner. Beds, diningroom, and living room furniture need to be updated. View and area are beautiful.
Good kitchen. Comfortable bedrooms
beautiful cabin, very clean, easy check in/check out.
Loved the downstairs area for the kids and the 3 bed/3bathroom design. Very comfortable for our group with lots of amenities. Enjoyed the hot tub and grill. Wished for some hiking from the cabin, but it is deep in the woods and very steep!
Everything was wonderful at this cabin
We enjoyed the house, it was perfect for our family. Our kids enjoyed the Foosball table and the PS3 (but it only had 1 game). Unfortunately the fire pit was falling apart, so we did not use it. The hot tub was great too, but had to be careful because I believe there is a hornets nest underneath the room of the hot tub. Overall had great time!
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!
Nice sized bedrooms with big beds, separated nicely. Loved the hot tub.
Cabin is less than 10 min to Blue Ridge, WalMart, & other conveniences. It was clean! Nestled in trees with bird concerts. Pleasant light cedar smell permeated house.
2 bedrooms on main level helpful for senior adults with group. (No walk in shower on that level; it’s in basement level, large bathroom.)
Our group agreed mattresses firm but not hard - some loved, some didn’t.
*Bring extra roll paper towels & baggies or food storage with lids if you plan to cook, foil for using in oven to rewarm food. (Didn’t find cookie sheet but Pyrex worked fine!)
*Gravel road the last little bit might be tricky for smaller car; our SUV had no problems.
*Sound does travel between floors since it’s open floor plan (easily seen on 3D views available online before booking).
It was marvelous. There were plenty of room and everything was at our feet. I got a chance to do what I had in mind. The cabin was superb. I will go back and recommend as well
Great Place to Relax and Recharge the Body Batteries.
Cabin was great for a family get away. We traveled with 4 adults and 3 children and the cabin had the perfect amount of rooms and bathrooms for everyone.
It is the ideal distance from the town and from great hiking trails. Very clean and lovely location with a nice view. Everything you need to cook and have a great time with the family.
My only suggestion is changing out the mattresses in the upstairs bedroom, they are just slightly warn out and sink on one side when there are two people in the bed.
Plenty of room, loved the site on top of the ridge.
This cabin was exactly what we needed for a relaxing weekend. Loved everything about it. It was quiet, just the right size, very cozy. It rained while we were there so we didn’t get to try the hot tub but we will absolutely be back soon!
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely cabin. It was clean, updated, and cozy. Perfect size for a family of 4.
Loved the cabin and location to Blue Ridge was great. The road to the cabin is not an easy ride and best for a 4 WD vehicle. The bedroom upstairs really needs a new mattress. The spring mattress was less than comfortable and could not sleep in it at all. Would stay again if the mattress was changed out for sure.
Hi, Carolyn! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Moonshine Hollow Cabin. Local staff inspected the bed you mentioned and found it to be in great condition. We do apologize if it did not suit your preferences. The road to the home is a dirt road, but it's in good shape and does not require 4WD. Thank you!
Everything was just as advertised.
Great place!!! Best vacation ever!! Definitely recommend this lovely cabin... awesome getaway
This cabin was a wonderful place for a cousins retreat for an extended weekend. We stayed at the cabin most of the time, but shops, restaurants, hiking, fishing, etc... were all right at our fingertips. There was something for everyone! The hot tub was nice, porch areas were spectacular, and the cabin was super clean. I would stay here again! Loved the time we spent and cherished the family moments. Thanks so much for a great experience.
We loved our long weekend in Blueridge! The home was super clean with ample space for everyone! The hot tub was fabulous! The wifi worked well for those of us who needed to work and it was easy to connect to Amazon for a movie. We brought food with us and enjoyed nights in without having to go into town. Perfect much needed get away! Hopefully we can come back sooner than later. :)
We enjoyed our stay in Blue Ridge. The cabin was comfortable and cozy. The kitchen needs some attention to utensils and dishes. Ex. Handheld can opener, larger coffee maker and/or Kuerig, serving dishes, sharpened knives and more silverware. We found several scorpions in the cabin. The dryer took a very long time to dry clothes and got very hot. We loved the area and the views!
The cabin was amazing ! We had plenty of space and lots of fun. Blue ridge is a beautiful place.
The cabin was beautiful, clean, spacious and quiet. We enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. Plenty to do in the area. We hiked many mountain trails, saw 5 waterfalls. All beautiful. Went to Ruby Falls in Chatanooga TN that was awesome. The falls are underground in Lookout Mountain. A must see. We loved it at the cabin. Would def go back.
This cabin was perfect for out fall getaway. It was very clean, cozy and well appointed. There were only a few things to change. The hot tub needs a step stool to get in to it. It was a bit scary getting out as it was a slippery and you had to jump down. The other thing missing was a cutting board and the gas grill never really got hot. We made do as they had a little charcoal grill. Overall great location and cabin. We would for sure rent again.
Hi, April! We appreciate your feedback and are so glad you stayed with us. Maintenance will be fixing the grill or replacing it, and we have purchased a cutting board. The hot tub has never had a step, but we are looking into adding one. Thanks!
We loved the cabin. It was clean and spacious for our family, we loved the basement game room and the hot tub. We grilled out and relaxed in the rocking chairs on the porch. We did a hike to a waterfall, grabbed ice cream in town, did gem mining and mini golf. Hit up an apple orchard on the way back home.
If you love the color green, this is your place! I'm a "tree-girl" so I can never get enough of them...not so much a "bug-girl" so be sure to use the jacuzzi BEFORE the motion detector lights can turn on or you'll be outnumbered! Everything we needed in the kitchen was there, the same with towels & bedding. No problems with using my phone & FaceTiming my family to show them the place. I hope to make it again there again one year in the fall, I'm sure it's beyond gorgeous! Thank you!
Perfect cabin for my two teens and me. Super clean cabin, with a great space to gather to play games. Each of us had our own bedroom and bathroom. Very close to downtown Blue Ridge. We enjoyed it very much! Would stay again!
This was the perfect getaway to celebrate my husband's and my daughter's birthday and also Father's day. We all had an amazing time and the grandkids loved the experience as well. We plan on coming back to visit next year.
When turning down for the night my daughter noticed a stain on the blanket that cover the bed, we pulled it off and put another blanket from the other room, also we seen 🦂 in the bedroom not sure how they would get in the cabin, only one wash pod for laundry need at least 3 for a family of 4 or more,other then that we enjoy the view and quietness of the mountains.
Very peaceful and quiet, able to enjoy sitting on a very large porch with rocking chairs. An extra large gas grill that look fairly new. Great care was put into this place.
All you have to do is bring food everything else is already there. There is a game room here with bar set up. PlayStation 3 or 4. Games, movies, books darts and foosball. So much to take care of those that need alot of entertainment.
It was time for a change of scenery and Moonshine Hollow was perfect. Having breakfast on the covered deck, cooking out each night, relaxing in the hot tub and playing games with the family was just what we needed. The cabin was spacious, clean and comfortable and there is plenty to do in the area. I hope to visit again some day.
We absolutely loved the location and how quiet the area ia
Great location and all the comforts of home..
This cabin has everything you need to enjoy your time in the mountains!!! It was clean and super spacious!
The location is perfect! The cabin, itself, is beautiful and well equipped! Definitely recommend!
Location, lay-out of cabin, comfortable beds, 3 bathrooms, washer - dryer.
The cabin was better than what was pictured. It was simply beautiful and the surroundings were gorgeous. Tucked away on the mountain, we found it to be very quiet and peaceful. There was only two downsides to our visit. One was the little Winding Road that led up to the cabin. Some of it was paved some was just gravel. We had the mountain on one side and a steep drop on the other side. It was a little nerve-wracking. The other disappointment was some of the cookware had rust spots on it. Would we vacation there again? Definitely!
We are happy that you enjoyed this lovely property! We asked the manager to discuss new cookware with the owner. We hope to see you again soon!
This cabin was the perfect size for me and my friends to have a few days for our girls trip! Everything was clean and functional and the location was so close to downtown Blue Ridge.
Close to Atlanta, this is a great find. Internet is a little slower than we hoped for but overall experience was excellent.
This cabin is a great place to relax. The cabin has everything you need and has plenty of room.
We had an excellent stay at Moonshine Hollow. Very clean and well equipped. Great property for three couples traveling together. Got a couple of texts from rep over the weekend just checking that things were going well. Close to Blue Ridge but secluded and lovely. Would definitely stay again.
This cabin is fantastic. You feel isolated from the world, yet your only a few miles from Blue Ridge!
Our usual requirement for a mountain house is "inconvenient to everything" -- meaning, we want to be secluded from others, in the middle of nowhere (somewhat). Well, this house is reasonably secluded (only one other house in sight, but far enough away), yet you can be in Blue Ridge in 10 minutes if desired. Arguably the best of both worlds.
This home is well laid out, with plenty of space, and is exceptionally well-maintained and clean. We've rented a number of homes -- this one is in as good a shape as any. As others have commented, we also appreciated the relative sparseness of "extra" decoration, so that we could simply use and enjoy the space as-is. No bug/pest problems at all.
We also encountered no issues in driving up to the house in our small sedan, and noted the paved section that may have been problematic previously. No problems at all now -- went up and down many times.
Covered porches were also plenty big for those rainy days, and the hot tub also worked well. Our rental contact warned us via phone prior to our arrival that a bear had been seen around the cabin -- appreciated the heads-up. This is hardly uncommon in these sorts of areas, but it speaks to the thoroughness of the rental process. Honestly, by the end we were a bit disappointed that our bear friend didn't make an appearance... :)
Kitchen was nice and modern, and decently appointed. Don't expect any extra spices and the like laying around, however. We usually bring what is needed food/spice-wise to prepare our planned meals, so not an issue for us. Gas grill was very clean, and an extra propane tank was supplied -- perfect.
Would agree with some of the comments that they were a little bit tight with the supplies -- I'm not renting a $200/day home so that I can steal Tide pods. That said, we didn't run out of anything, but there were only two of us in a big cabin. Slightly better paper towels would be appreciated, maybe upgraded linens (sheets were a little rough). Also, the first time I used one of the supplied washrags, it felt more like a loofah -- ouch. But -- plenty of towels, etc. were supplied, and all the bathrooms were in great shape. Plenty of hot water.
Would also agree on the comments re: the squeaky king bed downstairs. Definitely an adjustment the first couple of nights.
Internet access/Wi-Fi worked well in general. We had a couple of power glitches during our stay, and one resulted in around a 12-hour gap before our Internet access returned. Cell signals were strong for us, though, so no worries. TVs/Dish all worked great when in use.
This cabin is in a wooded area, so if you're looking for sweeping mountain vistas, this may not be your spot. Definitely a nice, peaceful location.
Bottom line -- we'd rent this one again. Very good experience.
We appreciate your detailed review, Mark! We are so happy that you had a great time at the cabin. We provide a starter supply of paper towels, toilet paper, laundry pods, etc. and after that, we ask that our guests provide their own. We are letting our local staff know that an upgrade of sheets and paper towels is something we should consider. We are also letting them know about the squeaky king size bed. Thank you for all of your feedback, we hope to host you again soon!
Clean, comfortable cabin with nice updates. My children loved the Fusball table and hot tub. I appreciated the spacious bathroom, huge fridge and washer and dryer. I was a bit apprehensive about the road and driveway getting to the cabin, but my car handled it fine. You will enjoy the quiet surroundings and beautiful views. Loved the short drive to hiking trails and downtown Blue Ridge.
Super nice cabin!!! Unfortunately, my trip was cut short due to a family emergency, but everything about the cabin was great! Check in was easy, place was super clean, hot tub was awesome, appliances are new, and the beds were comfortable. So were the rooms! I will be back!!
We had a wonderful time in this home away from home. The cabin was very clean and beautiful decorated. All the cooking utensils we needed were there and clean. The bathrooms were very modern and well stocked with soaps and lots of towels (and hot water). We loved our stay so much that we are making plans for a return next year. Thank you!
The cabin is great and looks exactly like the pictures. The only problem is the noisy downstairs bed and a serious lack of kitchen/bbq utensils. We loved the stunning views and porches.
Stayed there for 5 nights with my wife and two kids (8 and 11) and had a great time. House was super clean, much bigger than it looks. it provides that “mountain-feeling” while being close to town at the same time. I recommend it!
Really enjoyed our stay. It was a perfect cabin for the 5 of us.
This home is located right in the center of the woods with a perfect view of the mountains. The rooms are decent size each with its own bathroom. The gas chimney was perfect with the cold front that came in. Everything was clean and kept well, would definitely stay again. Already planning my vacation for next year with Vacasa.
The house was really clean. The bedroom and bathroom layout was perfect for our couples getaway - everyone had their own space.
We also loved that the decor was very clean and neat - no extra fake flower arrangements to take up storage space and collect dust.
It rained but the deep porch was definitely deep enough to sit outside without getting drenched.
Will stay here again!
We stayed over the weekend with a few friends. The house was updated - great bathrooms- and super clean. The porch was great for watching the wildlife, and we all enjoyed access to the hot tub. Our 5-year-old loved the foosball table. We will definitely be back!
We loved the house, game room and hot tub!
In love with this cabin! and very near to the town! definitely coming back!
This cabin is beautiful, clean and just the right amount of modern.
We really enjoyed our time in the cabin. Convenient location to town and easy access.
It was fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice nice cabin---exceptionally clean.. just perfect.
We had a ball and will be back!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cabin was lovely, view was fabulous
Nice Cabin in a nice area, but used the cheapest paper towels, toilet paper. Did not have enough trash bags, no Kleenex, two dishwasher pods, two laundry pods and two dryer sheets, while it advertised that these items would be provided during your stay.
Spacious! Loved the porches. Spent a lot of time on them
We really enjoyed our stay at this cabin. The roads weren't a problem at all (of course, it's summer and dry.) We'd stay again!
The cabin was very nice, although the road leading up to it needs attention
The cabin was clean, well equipped, quiet and within ten minute drive to blue ridge. We fell in love with the scenic beauty. There were plenty of activities for our whole family from hiking to waterfall, shopping in blue ridge to visiting the Bigfoot museum.
Perfect for my yearly retreat to get work done for my upcoming school year. A friend and I do tho every year and seek out a nice place to study, work, and cook! This cabin was perfect and provided all necessary kitchen components as well as places to work and play. I really liked how the cabin was decorated but not crowded with decor so we could put our puzzles and things out without moving other objects. The instructions and arrival/departure were clear and easy, not complicated and demanding. We had zero insect problems inside and everything we wanted for was provided. Loved the two levels and ability to be playing in area while napping in another. Have already looked into booking again. Also, as an aside, as another review said, it seems like you are secluded and in nature, but stores and other places are just 3.1 miles away. A great fall retreat for festivals and apple picking season too!
This was my first trip to the area and renting a cabin. The Hill going up was an eventful moment but once we finally got up the hill it was gorgeous. The cabin is lovely with all the essentials provided. I will definitely rent again.
The road has recently been paved which we believe will help make the trip to the cabin less eventful. Thank you!
Cabin was a good size and would have slept up to 7 adults comfortably. We had 2 adults and 3 older teens. Check-in and check-out was very convenient using the key pad code, so you didn't have to go find a rental office and get keys, etc. The kitchen was modern and well stocked with common cooking items. 2 bedrooms upstairs and 1 king downstairs. All bedrooms were good size and beds were comfortable. 3 full baths. Had a very nice game room with a fooseball table, various board and card games, TV's. 2 decks to sit on and the top deck has a great mountain view. We were close to town, but felt like we were out farther when you were sitting on the porch. The cabin was updated and clean with plenty of towels and supplies for 4 days. It was modern but cozy and rustic. We hated to leave. Fully recommend this one. P.S. - Be in low gear and hauling butt to get up the hill. Don't need a 4X4 but need to be moving.
The road leading to the cabin has been paved so it should be a much smoother experience reaching the cabin. We look forward to hearing how it is for our guests now!
My girlfriends and I were very pleased and happy with the cabin. It was very easy to check in and out. The cabin was so nice, very clean and peaceful. We enjoyed every bit of our stay from teh Jacuzzi to the firepit.
We had an amazing time when we stayed at Moonshine Hollow. They were very accommodating. We were fortunate enough to get snowed in a couple days. All I can say it was absolutely spectacular and stunning. They were very concerned about our safety getting down the mountain. They let us checkout late so the ice could melt. The place itself was very cozy and super cute.
Really beautiful, secluded cabin. Very comfortable and spacious. Close to downtown Blue Ridge. We enjoyed our stay. My only advice would be to take the steep hill to get to the cabin in daylight the first time.
The steep hill has been paved, so it should be an easier drive for our guests now. Thanks!
Our stay in Blue Ridge in October this year exceeded our expectations by far. The Cabin was clean and nicely stocked. The management company answered our call and immediately attended to a small issue that we had with the dishwasher within 2 hours. The entire staff was a pleasure to work with from the time that we booked the cabin through check out. There is no doubt in our mind where we will be looking to stay next time we are in town (usually every 6 months). The cabin is really close to town and centrally located to many attractions in the area, but is also secluded with no traffic noise. Just peace and quiet and a beautifully decorated cabin.
It was wonderful. Only thing wrong was the leaves hadn’t changed. But who could predict. Apple festival, down town ellijay and farms were a great experience also.
We were very pleased with our stay at Moonshine Hollow. Just what our family needed.
Cabin was excellent and only a couple of miles from downtown Blue Ridge and in a quiet wooded area. The layout was really nice with the master bedroom, and two other entertainment rooms located downstairs. Worked out great for the kids. Three flat screen TV's conveniently located throughout. Main floor has kitchen and two bedrooms. Three baths total. Large living area and kitchen with all new appliances. Cabin was very clean throughout with all kitchen utensils, gas grill, and outside hot tub. Would suggest bringing drinking water due to high iron content in water. As mentioned in another review, last section of road, about one hundred and fifty feet long, was a little hard to climb due to bumps without accelerating ahead of time.
That bumpy portion of the road has been paved so our guests should have a more enjoyable experience reaching their rental. We are excited for this improvement!
