We had a wonderful time. The weather was great . The cabin was a one bedroom with a screened in porch and hot tub. The view was awesome ! It was about 8 miles from the town of Blue Ridge. Our friends from Atlanta came up and we moved to a two bedroom cabin, which was just a few minutes up the road . It was very nice too. Dave the cabin manager was very, very accommodating! We had a wonderful time! We can't wait to come back and do it again!

My wife Sam and I love to get away to the North Georgia Mountains and have chosen Above the Rest many times. The staff is extremely helpful and make our stay easy and carefree. The properties listed by Above the Rest have exceeded our expectations and we have never lacked for anything from superb views, to comfortable surroundings, and excellent amenities.
The peace, quiet, tranquility, and mountain and valley views as well as the night sky from the porches of the rentals we have had make every trip a satisfying experience.
I am ready to return now. If you want to experience this you must come and see for yourself. For a romantic weekend or for a larger family gathering, the cabins at Above the Rest will serve you well as will the beautiful countryside around Blue Ridge, GA.

Room Tip: Look at the descriptions of the cabins to see what is offered and that it meets your requirements. Never disappointed.

My husband and I love to get away to the mountains, and we've been going twice a year for about 20 years now. Above the Rest is one of the best companies around, and this year we stayed at the Wooden Indian cabin. We had a wonderful time and took the whole family, including the dog. The cabin was spacious, comfortable, and wonderfully decorated including a full-sized teepee on the top floor landing! the kitchen was beyond fully equipped - it even had an ice cream maker! - and the hot tub was one of the nicest we've ever had - lots of room! Above the Rest has changed management since our last visit, and the addition of individually wrapped slippers, comfy robes, packages of coffee service and even a treat for the dog were welcome upgrades. The cabin was very clean and comfortably furnished - you will not find any corners cut in these cabins - we can't wait to make another visit!

Room Tip: Visiting in October can be a little pricey due to the fall color season and apple festival time; but if you can swing it, it is definitely a beautiful time to visit!

Have you ever wished you -- or a rich, generous friend -- had a second home, a cabin in the woods where you could go to get away from it all, but with the comforts of home? That's what it's like to spend time at Above the Rest.

We stayed at Mountain Music. It's called a cabin, but it's as big as a regular house with all the amenities of a home -- and then some, including a hot tub on your own private sunporch. The decor is rustic and the cabin is spotlessly clean and so cozy. Lots of nice touches. They had soft music playing on the flat-screen TV when we walked in, and they had left a welcome note and two dog biscuits for our two dogs. There are books and games sitting around, which adds to the feeling that you're at home. So nice!

We've been in the midst of a kitchen remodel and have been without a kitchen for a month now, so we've been enjoying hanging out, cooking delicious food, eating, lounging in the hot tub and reading. Our dogs are loving getting to check out the place and breathe in the country air.

And, priced not much higher than a standard hotel room, this is a total bargain We will be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in Mountain Music, and it's great. Pet-friendly.

Decided to return yet again... Stayed at Among the Pines this time... REALLY NICE LAYOUT...

Got the kids together with the grandparents, sat around the fire pit with absolutely perfect weather... relaxed in the hot tub... watched a little bit of football...

Life just doesn't get much better...

Room Tip: WOW... It may take a week to build up enough blood pressure and stress so that I can go back to work...
