At 884 sf it is the perfect size for a couple's romantic getaway. A day bed is available for one child. Plenty of windows with custom plantation shutters to open and fill the room with loads of light. Need more guest rooms? Search Memory Maker 2 next door. A 3/1.5 home that sleeps 6.

The space
We believe you will love our studio home, come back often, and recommend to your friends and family.

Although we have a Mineral Bluff address, the studio is only one mile from McCaysville, GA and Copperhill, TN. This area has recently changed from two sleepy little mountain towns to an area with much to offer. The towns sit on opposite sides of the Toccoa and Ocoee River – the river changes names at the bridge in the middle of town. Toccoa in GA and Ocoee in TN. Both towns offer excellent restaurants, several craft breweries, and unique specialty retail shops. You won’t want to miss any of this. The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway must think there is something special about the area since it stops in McCaysville after its journey from Blue Ridge, GA. While you are staying at Memory Maker, you’ll only be 10 miles from the most popular destination in the north Georgia mountains, Blue Ridge, GA. More on Blue Ridge on down this page.

As you approach McCaysville on Hwy 60, you will see multiple whitewater rafting and tubing outfitters as the river is a go-to attraction during rafting/float season. And on up the road, only 13 miles, off of US Hwy 64 in TN, is the Ocoee Whitewater Center where the 1996 Atlanta Olympics held their whitewater rafting competitions. The center is a great place to have a picnic and watch the kayaks and rafts maneuver the fast and rolling rapids.

Drive another 12 miles down US Hwy 64, along the Ocoee River, and you'll come to the entrance to the Chilhowee Recreation Area. You definitely want to visit this place. The road up to the parking area has multiple pull-offs so you can see the spectacular views of the river valley below and layered mountain views in every direction. At the top is a campground and 7-acre McKamy Lake offers a swim area with a sand beach, and fishing from the bank. Also, within the recreation area are approximately 25 miles of hiking and biking trails, and the scenic Benton waterfall is an easy hike and gorgeous. This is a day trip worth taking.

Now about Blue Ridge, GA. Stunning views, hiking trails, waterfalls, wineries and craft breweries, galleries, shops, u-pick farms, and friendly people. The town of Blue ridge is located in Fannin county which offers 106,000 acres of Chattahoochee National Forest, 300 miles of hiking trails and 100 miles of trout streams (Fannin County is the official Trout Fishing Capital of Georgia), Blue Ridge Lake, and so much more.

Blue Ridge and the surrounding area of Georgia-Tennessee-North Carolina can't be beat. A few days just isn’t enough time to see and experience everything we have to offer. Our area is an outdoor adventure seeker's dream.

In the studio, you will find brochures and information on area attractions and restaurants and before you visit, be sure to visit the Chamber websites of Fannin County, GA; Polk County, TN; and Cherokee County, NC. You will be dead center in what we call the Beautiful Tri-State area.

Where you’ll be

Mineral Bluff, Georgia, United States

The entire Tri-State area is outstanding, gorgeous, and an outdoor adventurer's paradise. There is something for everyone. Take a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, following the Toccoa River to the town of McCaysville. Sample craft breweries, wineries, surprisingly upscale shops, galleries and restaurants. Hike to a local waterfall on the Appalachian Trail, tube or kayak the Toccoa or go whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River. And so much more!
