(Property location is approximate)
Additional Location Information
Approximately fifteen minutes from Whitepath Golf Course, and three different rivers that offer tubing and kayaking, horseback riding, fly-fishing, whitewater rafting, hiking, scenic trains rides, antiquing, hassle free shopping, mini golf, children's amusement park, deer park, Amicalola Falls, apple orchards and much, much more. Cabin is located half way up Walnut Mountain with less than a dozen cabins on the mountain. We are located just outside of Ellijay with easy access to Blue Ridge. At the bottom of our road is Turniptown Creek where you will see fly fishers and people panning for gold on occasion. Ex-President Jimmy Carter's cabin is very nearby and has done much work personally making the creek habitable for trout by hand building rock dams for spawning pools. We are 4 miles from the Cartecay River with tubing and kayaking outfitters. Great local restaurants and shopping are within a 15 minute drive.
This list will not do justice to all the activities and attractions in this area. The local chambers of commerce have a wealth of the same, as well as knowledgeable and friendly personnel who love to share information about their special corner of paradise. Of course, you can also research the towns and general area on the Internet.
Hiking galore, including the Appalachian and the Benton MacKaye
Fishing, boating, Jet Skiing, tubing, whitewater rafting--Lake Blue Ridge, Toccoa River, Ocoee River
Horseback riding, golf, mountain biking, gem and gold panning
Antiquing--Blue Ridge has been called the antique capital of GA, and Ellijay, with its charming roundabout (instead of the typical courthouse square), has its share, too
Swan Drive-In Theater, one of the few remaining today, operating since 1955
Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, on which you can take a narrated ride from Blue Ridge to the twin cities of McKaysville GA and Copperhill TN and stand with one foot in GA and one in TN--marked with a big blue line painted through the IGA Grocery parking lot
Apple businesses where you can view the process from orchard to grocery bag, tour the facilities, shop for apple-themed goods and goodies, and try one of the area's delights: the fried pie! Ellijay is known as the apple capital of GA
Wonderful local restaurants--just a few: the Toccoa Riverside, where on weekend nights a duet of two elderly, overall-clad bluegrass pickers entertain; the Pink Pig in Cherry Log, President Jimmy Carter's favorite BBQ joint; Colonel Poole's BBQ in Ellijay, where the hillside is decorated with a giant outline of a pig compiled of hundreds of plywood pigs naming past patrons (some celebrities), and our favorite italian place, Charlies in Ellijay.
Festivals throughout the year: for example, Apple Festival, Sorghum Festival, Prater's Mill Festival, GA Mountain Fair (demonstrations of old-timey mountain practices), Rhododendron Festival, Bluegrass Festival, Dahlonega's Gold Rush Days
Numerous state parks, national parks, and national forests, each with its own amenities, activities, and gorgeous scenery
Marked scenic drives/highways, almost all with scenic pull-overs and overlooks, especially important during our gorgeous autumn "leaf-gawking" season
Countless waterfalls, one of which (Amicalola) is the tallest cascading falls east of the Mississippi; in the cabin are a pamphlets with descriptions and directions to 11 falls in the area--all of which we've hiked to--only a couple are strenous treks
Just a few miles from the cabin is the longest suspension bridge east of the Mississippi, a very short and easy hike brings you to where it crosses the Toccoa River
A little further away is Tallulah Falls and Gorge, the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi(notice a pattern here?)--we've hiked to the bottom of it, and it is strenuous, but magnificent
Many other sights within a short drive, such as Brasstown Bald, the highest point in GA, Dahlonega's Gold Museum, the Alpine town of Helen
Also available in-cabin are such services as massage and gourmet chef
Location Type Away from it all, Mountain, River

Best Thanksgiving Family Retreat
This was the best Thanksgiving(2012) family retreat. There was something for everyone. Our family consisted of me & my sister, her 2 teen daughters, grandma, and a family dog. This cabin was perfect for everyone. It was handicap accessible for grandma, with a master bedroom on the main floor, step in shower, and easy access to the firepit. There were no stairs for her to climb. This was dog heaven because the dog was able to run without a leash and the mountain top provided a natural barrier for the dog. We were able to take the dog with us to all the tourist spots. There were over 100 Dvd's for the teens to watch. It was centrally located to all the major tourist spots. The grocery store was 5 minutes away. There was a 360* mountain view. The girls loved the outdoor firepit and we had a bonfire every night. The drinking water from the tap was fresh mountain water and was delicious, cold, and refreshing. The outdoor hot tub was relaxing on those cool nights. Our 2 favorite "do not miss" stops were amicola Falls, which has a handicap accessible path to the waterfall. The other was our trip to Helen, Ga., which is an alpine Village located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which was a 1 hour drive, but well worth it. Our Hosts, Ron and alley, were fantastic, friendly, and very accomodating. I would highly recommend Bearadise for a great family get-a-way. We had a wonderful time. Thank You for sharing your cabin with us.

Cozy Hideaway built for comfort
My wife and I spent a very relaxing long weekend at Bearadise. The cabin's rustic and cozy decor was quite comfortable with plenty of room. The master bedroom's king size bed was quite comfortable. We really enjoyed the front porch and hot tub area with its panoramic mountain view. The cabin can easly handle a large family or group of friends. After our stay at Bearadise, my wife and I agree that our experience was excellent and we whole heartedly recommend the property.
My family enjoyed a relaxing & fun weekend at Bearadise. You can enjoy the local shops in town, roast marshmellows outside by the fire, or relax in the hot tub. This is a great cabin for families with children or couples that would like to just get a way! We will definitely visit again!
