“Nice stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

We stayed the night before we hiked the AT and the night we returned from the trail. We stayed in the Fox cabin. The cabin had 2 beds, a living room area and dining area, a kitchen and bathroom with a small shower with great water pressure. We were warm and comfortable on both nights of our stay. We could hear and see the small creek from our balcony. George is a wonderful, helpful host. Yes, there is road noise during the day but it is very quiet at night. I would recommend.

First of all, try to deal with the gentleman who owns and runs this place. His wife who generally runs the desk is not very friendly and seemingly has a very negative attitude which just about made us want to stay somewhere else!! If it weren't for her husband recovering the conversation, we would have split. It used to be a pretty cool place to stay but has become quite worn over the years. Can be a bit dangerous for bikers to enter and exit here as well. Would we stay here again? Probably not, unfortunately :( Just be advised that this is a very difficult place to bring a bike trailer into as well.. Little to no turn around space. FYI

bloodmtn, Owner at Blood Mountain Cabins & Country Store, responded to this review, 25 September 2013
We have been here 21 years and 90 % of our business is from return customers. We are located on the side of a mountain and there are only a few of our cabins that work for a bike trailer. . We are trying to figure out how we have changed over the years. Our cabins have been upgraded both inside and out.. As you can see from many other reviews, most people tell us we are friendly and helpful. If a customer is unhappy we try to offer one of our private homes that we rent or we call around to help the customer find a place more to their liking. It is too bad this guest did not ask us to help him find something else. There is no way we can change our driveways , so a guest needs to tell us if he or she is bringing a trailer.

Loved it!
Can't wait to go back,three of us ladies went,me,sis and my daughter pat.
I'm 70 my sis is 68,it was a trip to celebrate milestones,50 year wedding anniversies,was one of them,though both our husbands have passed on.
We hiked Blood mtn. the first day,
Went to vogel music festival on 9-14 sat.
Hiked levelland mtn.ate at smokin joe's.at the end of such active days the little cabin just wrapped it's arms around us and took care of us.As for the proprietor and his wife it would take up to much space to say how wonderful and helpful they are! We enjoyed a roaring fire the last night we stayed,yes there is a lot of traffic noise,but it's sort of the flavor of being dug into the side of a mountain,eighteen wheelers and motorcycles are just a part of where you are.
This was our first stay at Blood mountain and country store,but God willing it won't be our last!

This review is for the store part of the property. We stopped in just on a whim. Had a nice chat with the proprietor and enjoyed petting the cats. I bought a few touristy items (magnet, postcards, etc). A lot of the store is dedicated to rocks/collecting. Not my particular cup of tea, but definitely worth a visit. Gorgeous views everywhere.

Also, ask the owner about the falls just down the road. They're visible after a very short trek off a country lane. Beautiful!

We arrived late Friday night on Fathers Day weekend, the key for the cabin was waiting for us near the store. The cabin was warm and clean, full fridge, oven, microwave. We hiked 21 miles of the AT 14 of them being on Sunday, the temperature at the start of our hike was 15 degrees. It was nice coming back to a nice warm shower and building a nice fire. We'll definitely be back and would recommend Blood Mountain Cabins to anyone.

Hiking north on the AT, this was our first stop, and after sever days of rain, a hot shower and a dry bed was all we wanted. Instead, we also got a kitchen, and a cool mountain store stocked with pizza, hiker snacks, books, locally made food, and laundry service. All with warm, helpful hospitality. Split three ways, it was a $20 night. Wonderful.

My wife and I live in Atlanta and I bike up in the 6 gap region all the time so I had been wanting to stay at these cabins for some time. Everything, from the first call to the checkout was fantastic. The cabins are rustic but well put together and the views (depending on the cabin you choose) are fantastic. One of the best things for us was the fact that you can walk on a small trail strait to the AT, that was SO nice. No need to drive at all, just wander on over.

The cabins were well stocked with pots and pans and silverware and it was really nice to have a fireplace to build a fire in. One word of warning, the wood they have for the fires (if you want to do it) is in fair sized splits, so you'll likely want to bring a small hatchet to split off some kindling and tinder. Overall the experience was amazing, we stayed at a nice resort a bit further north the next night and definitely both wish we had just booked an extra night at the cabin instead. We're planning on coming back for weekend getaways a lot more often.

One word of warning, because the roads snake around and there are so many motorcycles who love to ride the area, if you're really sensitive about road noise you might want to pick one of the cabins down by the creek. You'll sacrifice the views but it might be quieter. It didn't bother us at all, but I can definitely see someone who was really sensitive about it being a bit put out.

If you're looking for something rustic and romantic, it's a great choice.
