About this listing
Enjoy a ridiculously awesome vacation on Lake Blue Ridge in the North Georgia mountains! This gorgeous seven bedroom cabin has everything you could need for that perfect getaway. Plenty of water toys, bbq grill on the deck, game room, and more!!
This house is unbelievable; Colby and Kristy are amazingly helpful and accommodating (there are no words to adequately express how awesome they were for us; on the last night of their trip, we had them pop over for a visit and a glass of wine because we all wanted to say goodbye and give them a hug)...they went out of their way again and again to fulfill even our most over the top requests. We moved into their house with 12 people for two weeks to rehearse for a tour and begin recording a new album (I'm a musician). We treated this trip as something akin to a corporate retreat in the early parts of each day...we swam, went fishing, took their pontoon boat out, went running, and generally enjoyed gorgeous Blue Ridge, then we worked from after lunch into the early evenings. After that we'd make big dinners for the group in the well appointed kitchen and eat at the enormous dining room table (which, at one point, we had 14 people eating at). After that, we'd hang out in the downstairs game room watching football on the huge TV or playing pool or arcade games. We'd also hang outside by the fire pit and make smores and just generally shoot the breeze or look at the stars. We also enjoyed sitting in the hot tub relaxing. This place is like a summer camp for adults. The house is huge and well appointed...there are so many bedrooms and bathrooms, plus a pull out couch and countless other couches. The apartment over the garage housed four grown men comfortably. When my brother and another friend showed up unexpectedly, we had more than enough room to house them (in addition to the 12 of us, plus all our band and recording equipment)...I am trying to emphasize that the house is HUGE...we filled the great room with stuff but still had plenty of room to eat in the dining room area of that space...plus we'd hang out in the downstairs game room...also there's lots of parking, which was clutch for us (at one point, we had a 15 passenger van, a 6x12 trailer, an SUV, and two cars parked out there). There's a washer and dryer which was obviously very useful over the course of two weeks. The house is quiet and nobody bothers you...we were playing loud music all day and no one ever noticed...a neighbor from the closest house down the road bumped into us one day and said "There's a band in the house? I had no idea! Hadn't heard a peep." There's space between this house and the neighbors. We just loved this place. I hope we can go back and visit again soon.
This is a beautiful home on a gorgeous lakefront lot with all the amenities. We were there for a leadership retreat and were able to both work and relax. The home is clean and well appointed with everything you need - large and small. The host is very responsive and quick to help when needed. We hope to return!

About the Host, Colby
Hi! I'm Colby, and I ran away and joined the circus. No kidding! I performed for about a decade on the high flying trapeze, touring with circuses all over the world including for Ringing Brothers And Barnum & Bailey Circus. I now live in the beautiful town of Blue Ridge, GA with my beautiful girlfriend and our twin baby boys!
