We stayed with Above the Rest for our honeymoon this summer. Their cabins are clean and organized. They bring you comfort and serenity from the moment you enter. The time we had there was so relaxing and enjoyable. Book a trip with them! And see the wonderful little town of Blue Ridge!

My husband and I started visiting the mountain many years ago. We've visited Above The Rest with friends, family, as well as just the two of us. We have NEVER been disappointed or unhappy with our accommodations. These are first rate cabins. Probably the best of all is the couple that manage these cabins, David & Jeanette! They are unbelievable!... More

My wife and I spent our 30th anniversary at Crazy Horse cabin. David at check in was extremely friendly and when we arrived at the cabin it was more then we expected. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. The location was very private and the view was exceptional,especially at sunset. We had a great week and... More

My husband and I have been going here for years and it's always amazing! They always go above and beyond. Probably why they are called Above the Rest! We love it so much we even got married here in October 2010. I can't say enough about Above the Rest Cabins.

A cabin in the mountains is sweet enough as it is but Above the Rest has always given us impeccable service on top of what already are amazing cabins. They truly care about what they are doing. We have rented from others in the same area and you can tell a difference. With Above the Rest don't be surprised by... More

We'd stayed at luxury cabins all over north Georgia over the years; but once we discovered this company and the cabins they manage, we've never stayed anywhere else. That's been well over a decade ago. We've stayed in quite a few Above the Rest cabins, and have enjoyed them all. If there is ever a problem, all we have to... More

We stayed in American Idyll a few years ago for our honeymoon in early September. I can't think of a more romantic place--cozy fireplaces, soft leather couches, a private hot tub, and a fully-equipped kitchen. What made it so special, though, was the personal attention to detail from the managers, Jeannette and David. We had champagne cooling in the fridge,... More

Never disappointed in our travels to Blue Ridge area. Above the Rest Cabins never fail to accommodate and provide unsurpassed service. The owners of the business are top! Special requests are handled and we love that most of the cabins are pet friendly.

The rental process was excellent and the check in was great and easy. The rental was beautiful and very secluded which was exactly what we wanted. Everything was clean and fresh when we checked in and very well stocked with all the things that make for a relaxed vacation. The only thing that was a bit of a challenge was... More

Hi Brenda, Thank you so much for taking the time to review Sunshine in the Pines and your stay with us; I think that home is just stunning. You are right though - big steps getting in!! We are deeply sorry that the road was in such bad shape getting out there; we had the estimate done and put the... More

Cabin was great! The roads from the office were a bit challenging in a minivan, so you may want to be aware of one lane narrow winding roads! The grill was unusable due to its condition, besides that everything was spectacular!! We will be back!

Nathan, thank you for taking the time to review us! I could *not* agree more - and I think you were being very generous when you used the word "challenging" for that road from the office to the back of the mountain! :) I am happy to report that the road has been fully graded, a culvert added at the...
