Above the Rest Cabins
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 1, 2010

We have stayed in four different cabins on four different occasions and none have been less than fantastic. On our honeymoon, we stayed in American Idyll. It was very cozy and perfect for the two of us. The view was gorgeous. We have also stayed in the cabin Dream Catcher twice (we are going back this September) and it is our absolute favorite! This cabin has more sollitude than the others we have stayed at. The view is great, the cabin is always spotless, and Jeanette (one of the owners of the Above the Rest Cabins) was just as friendly as always. I do not have one negative thing to say about their rental cabins.

Our mountain getaway was calm and restful, starting with a call to the Above the Rest office to see if last minute reservations could be made. Jeanette, one of the owners, was accommodating and extremely efficient. Check-in was also effortless. Our cabin, "Southern Comfort", is charming and the relaxation started the minute we walked up the porch steps and opened the door. The view of the mountains from the great room is spectacular and buffered from the rest of the world by trees. We could have stayed in for our entire visit and been completely content. There is a stone fire place, hot tub on the screened porch, rocking chairs for every member of the family, a porch swing, lots of good, old-fashioned board games, a stock of toys and DVDs for the kids along with a play set in the yard, a full bookshelf for grown-up readers, and a fully equipped kitchen. There are 3 bedrooms, all comfortably appointed in "cabin" style furniture and quilts. Everything was comfortable and very clean.

We ventured out and found a big-city quality Italian restaurant, Cucina Rustica, within just a few miles of the cabin. Blue Ridge, just 15 minutes away, is a friendly, quaint town with lots of specialty shops to enjoy. We had an excellent lunch at Harvest-on-Main. One of the trip highlights was the Blue Ridge Railways train ride along the Toccoa River - I love that the lost art of waving to strangers is alive and well in this part of Georgia! At night, we enjoyed the deck where we were able to do some amazing star-gazing.

Thanks to the great accommodations and the genuinely friendly people we encountered, this was a perfect, restful mountain vacation.

The cabin is unbelievable. The pictures on the web site do not do this cabin justice!! It has beautiful furnishings and the view is awsome. My dog loved swimming in the lake and WE CAUGHT BASS!! From the hot tub, pool table and the porches we could not have wanted for more. The only time we left was to the local food market. This cabin is a wonderful family get away. Are family can't wait to go back.

We recently made our first trip to Blue Ridge and chose to stay with Above the Rest cabins. Our cabin, Dream Maker, was simply beautiful. It was immaculately clean and had everything we could have needed.

The owners provided these lush robes to use while we were there, as well as goodies to take home. Love the loofah wash cloth! We will definitely go back and take our kids and stay LONGER. It was the perfect break from the busy life we have in the city.

We stayed in Over the Top, with Above the Rest cabins. It was wonderful! After a trip down to Orlando (disney & universal) we stopped here on the way back up north to take a break. We had a 7, 10, 16 and 17 year old with us. They loved the house too. The rooms were large and clean with a gourmet kitchen and amazing views. We shopped at the great local grocery and grilled each night on the deck watching the sunset. Every morning was spent drinking coffee on the deck. The kids loved the basement with it's pool table, air hockey, movie room and wifi. After running around the parks non stop for 3 days we were ready to just sit and relax. Each evening my husband hit the hot tub and I hit the inside jacuzzi tub. With all the kids in the basement, it felt like we were on vacation alone. We will be going back and are busy recommending this location to our friends and family.

We stayed for one week at Dream Catcher cabin and it was great. The hosts make sure they think of everything you might need and provide it. They even give you a couple "goodie" bags one in the kitchen has coffee, tea, candy; one in the master bath has lotion, shampoo, loafa even lip balm. They even give you slippers!!!! This cabin has a great view either sitting in the rocking chairs or in the hot tub. We have stayed here before and loved it and came back and loved it again.
Above the rest are really above the rest!!! The coffee pot in our cabin died and it was replaced swiftly and friendly. These people are great!!!!
We love the Blue Ridge area the town is great; small and quaint. The Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad is a GREAT TRIP.

If you think a cabin in the mountains involves a run down, musty, dusty dwelling above a backward town, you haven't been to Blue Ridge, GA and you have not stayed at Above the Rest.Cabins. My husband and I spent the week here for our anniversary. Our cabin was sparkling clean with a specious gourmet kitchen, stylish furnishings, large bedrooms, greatroom and a hot tub overlooking stunning views. Did I mention the grill on the deck and the total privacy? The area has great supermarkets for groceries, and enough outdoor delights to please anyone who enjoys the outdoors but needs indoor comforts. We loved the area waterfalls, lakes, streams, rivers, and quaint shopping. Stress literally melted off us. The question is not whether we will go back, but how soon can we get back?
