Stayed at the "Deer crossing ". Had a great visit , received directions to the cabin. Thankfully well written out , drawn out as well. Cabin was so very clean and it was quiet. Set way down a gravel drive. When I go back to blue ridge, I'll definitely try and get the same place.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We love Deer Crossing: such an adorable and well done home, with excellent privacy. We hope you were able to enjoy watching the deer that frequently pass by, or the wild turkeys. There's also a great horned owl who can frequently been seen, especially if you stroll on some of the trails... More

After deciding on the Blue Ridge area of North Georgia, we looked at multiple cabin companies, selected two and then researched them again using TripAdvisor feedback. Above the Rest Cabins was the highest rated so we browsed all of the available cabins and then booked Howling Wolf Lodge for 7 nights. The drive up from Orlando took a little longer... More

We stayed at the Dream Maker cabin. Everything was as described on the website-- better, actually. The attention to detail was much appreciated and helped make our trip wonderful. Blue Ridge, Blairsville, and MacCaysville offer many interesting attractions. We went to Brasstown Bald, went tubing on the Toccoa, and hiking on one of the Aska Trails. The Swan Drive-in, in...

We have stayed at many cabins with Above the Rest and every one has always been as advertised. Each unique cabin is well appointed and offers amenities that most don't expect when renting a vacation home. We did stay at a different company once due to a sell out with Above the Rest.

We had a fantastic time during our trip. The cabin was as advertised and well appointed. I will tell anyone who listens, this is by far the best company to rent a cabin from. I rented from another company one time and will never choose another company again!

My husband and I traveled up to Blue Ridge from Atlanta for ten years, until we relocated here full-time, and always stayed in the same cabin. Why? Because of David and Jeanette Jenkins' exquisite, personalized, and conscientious care of minute and tedious details.
