Our stay there was a memorable one and we will certainly be back. The cabin perfect, the atmosphere was just right, and the staff made it a place that we will always remember and will start one of our many traditions to return. Thank you.

This is an Awesome Cabin! The view is truly GRAND! The staff is very nice. (Grandview)
Our stay was wonderful and relaxing. We all just loved it! Love that our dog Pixie was welcome! Thank you for that! This place is beautiful and we will be recommending to our friends & family! We are from East Tennessee so we are used to the beauty of the mountains but this felt like a home away from home stay which is what was very needed! (Laurel's Rest)

Awesome stay! (Raccoon Lodge)
Excellent Stay! Very neat & clean! (Raccoon Lodge)
We loved the cabin, it was spotless, the floors were super clean, and I didn't have to wear shoes! Location was great and peaceful! Just what we needed! (Sassafras Ridge)
Everything was more than we could have dreamed. This was our Honeymoon and we feel so blessed that we came. Thank you for everything!

Sadly my husband and I left the Cliffhanger cabin today. We wish we could have stayed longer! The cabin was beautiful, the staff was wonderful and the views are breathe taking. We actually got married during our stay at the cabin. Kelly made all the arrangements from the flowers, to the minister, the photographer and the cake. It was so stress free and easy... She did everything. Our ceremony was so wonderful and intimate, we couldn't have been happier. Our 1st anniversary is so far away, so we plan to be back sooner. Would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a intimate and quiet place to relax and unplug!
My husband and I stayed at the Sassafras Ridge cabin for our 10 year anniversary. It was everything we expected. All the cabins are very secluded for that perfect romantic getaway we were looking for. The back balcony with the hot tub overlooked the deep wooded forest for extra privacy. The hottub is covered so we got to enjoy it during the rain. The cabin was very spacious with a wood burning fireplace to cozy up next too just be sure to take some firewood or purchase before you get to your cabin. It rained during our stay, and the rain hitting the tin room made it much more relaxing. These cabins are truly secluded. We are already planning our next stay at the Wilderness View Cabins.
My girlfriends and I rented the Coyote Bluff cabin for a week and we absolutely loved it! No complaints here :) can't wait to go back next year! (Coyote Bluff)
We had to come back a second time. We love it! Raccoon Lodge is beautiful with amazing views from both an upper and lower porch. The cabin offers complete privacy. The cabin was wonderfully decorated and very comfortable. The staff is also excellent and goes out of their way to make your trip special. We are already planning next years trip.
We stayed at the Windrush and it was absolutely perfect. Immaculately clean special thanks to Mike for a great job and the extra care he takes to be sure everything is tip top. The cabin was roomy and comfy! Kelly was amazingly welcoming and diligent in being sure we had everything we needed and even scheduled Lisa (the masseuse) who rubbed away all of the aches from our hiking excursions. We can't wait to come back and next time we are bringing the family!
We stayed at Laurel's Rest Cabin last weekend and had the most enjoyable, relaxing time. The cabin is very cozy and comfortable, making us feel like we were in our home away from home. This cabin allows pets so we were able to bring our dog, which was a big reason why we picked this cabin. Bringing our dog and a covered hot tub, in case of rain. The cabin was very clean and very well maintained. Everyone from Wilderness View Cabins was exceptionally kind and went out of their way to accommodate us and were very friendly to talk to (which can be hard to find sometimes these days) I am an EMT/ Firefighter and the first things I look for anytime I stay somewhere is the exits, smoke alarms, extinguishers, and how far away the nearest fire department is. Believe it or not I was impressed that there is a fire station not far away but we never heard a sound. We felt like we were on our own mountain without anyone else around. This was exactly what we were looking for. We pretty much stayed at the cabin for the weekend because it was what we needed but on our next stay we will be visiting the trails and things. I am a home bug & usually get homesick after a couple days away from home. During our stay at Laurel's rest I never got home sick and I was actually disappointed that we had to leave. We are definitely looking forward to going back soon!
This most recent visit was our third stay at Coyote Bluff Cabin (our favorite) and at least our seventh stay at a Wilderness View cabin. The fact that we continue to return there time after time should speak well-enough for itself. The setting is perfect for a mountain wilderness retreat: wonderful views, peaceful and quiet - a great break from the city. The cabins are kept very clean and outfitted with all the modern conveniences one would expect. The service is outstanding: the help are most ingratiating and eager to make one's stay a pleasant one. The best compliment I can offer is the fact that we are regular customers of this fine establishment!
GREAT RENTAL PROPERTY! (Windrush)

Thank you so much for everything. It's so peaceful & beautiful. Extra thanks to those that helped us with making the reservations (i.e. billing/deposits). You made this possible for us to come and enjoy! Coming back! :-) (Raccoon Lodge)
Cliffhanger is a beautiful, secluded cabin... exactly what we needed! If we ever built a cabin, this would be it! (Cliffhanger)
Loved our stay, we didn't want to leave! (Parrott's Perch)
These cabins are just the best place in the world to stay and relax!! (Raccoon Lodge)
Very peaceful and relaxing 25th anniversary! All the comforts of home! Loved the cabin and the view! All staff was extremely helpful!
Our stay was wonderful experience, thanks for everything! (Sassafras Ridge)
Excellent stay and cabin! (Parrott's Perch)

Everything was wonderful as usual! Staff was awesome in booking everything and helpful! See you next time! (Laurel's Rest)
Beautiful mountain views! Love the solitude!

Everyone has been a pleasure, from the first phone call to our arrival! We are looking forward to another visit!

Ananda! Wow, Beautiful little Cabin! The Wife and I had the best time. We hiked right off the front porch followed the creek it or a few miles, the property is right there at the National forest boundary and Fort Mountain State Park, nice little pond full of fish at the end of the driveway. I ‘ll bring a couple of fishing poles next time..… We’ve been going to Blue Ridge for years. We think we like this area the best.. the seclusion and great views, You really feel out there! The drive home was all about planning another trip there this summer…
The two story, two bedroom & two bath Cliffhanger cabin is open, modern and airy, dog-friendly, and features stunning views from its great areas for outdoor relaxation. And the cabin is located near some of our favorite North Georgia hiking and mountain biking trails, making the Cliffhanger a great weekend getaway. http://www.atlantatrails.com/cabins/ellijay-cabin-review-cliffhanger-cabin-wilderness-view-cabins/
Great Cabin This cabin is a perfect place for a weekend getaway. I brought my wife a 2 kids. Each room is so different and unique. The TV in the bathroom actually takes the cake. I watched netflix in the tub. There are games and tons of dvds. I even like the recommendation book that the owners provided. It was cozy and yet huge inside and the firepit area was awesome. I highly recommend this cabin. Every detail was thought out and we will be back.
R.W, Griffin, Ga
Most Relaxing Stay Ever My wife and I came to "Take a Breath" on a recommendation from a friend. From the moment that we walked in, this place felt like home. Comfortable and super clean with so many unique features it is almost unbelievable. The beds are very comfortable, the 2 headed shower is amazing, and the 32 inch TV in the bathroom with Netflix is wonderful. The furniture is so comfortable and it was a relaxation dream for us. we will be back again soon. The fire pit area is set up perfectly and the owners left us a new bag of marshmallows, chocolate bars and graham crackers. It was the best vacation we have had in years. PS The same deer family came to the property every morning and evening and they were so beautiful and not scared of us at all. They even seemed to pose for pictures.

Booked Dancing Bear last minute due to an unexpected trip. Staff was very helpful and professional. Our cabin was relax ready the moment we opened the door. The views are spectacular and nothing beats the sound of nature. Our family will definitely be returning.
My wife, kids and I came up to Coosawattee River Resort with low expectations because we had stayed in a cabin before up here when we came to visit family several years ago. WOW, what a difference. This cabin is called "Take A Breath" for a reason. I was very comfortable and relaxing. Every room was beautiful and super clean. The one thing that really stood out is the paper products provided to us. The paper towels were thick and great quality. The toilet paper was great quality also and not the see through stuff. I know that should not matter but it makes a huge difference in a vacation to us. Also the cabin has cable in each bedroom and a flat screen in the bathroom. It was a great visit with our family and mostly because when we left them each day, we looked forward to coming back to this cabin. PS The owners even left us a smore's package. We will be back.
Beautiful Cabin This is a great cabin. It is so clean and elegant. My wife is totally in love with this cabin. It is decorated very nice and has so much rustic charm. My kids loved the fast internet and the spa tub. I loved the giant 2 headed shower and the log rocking chairs. All in all this was a great getaway and we cannot wait to come back.
Getaway Dream We came up to Ellijay for the festivals and the leaves changing this year and really expected to be out and about most of our time up here, but this cabin made that kind of hard. It is very comfortable and warm and cozy. I love the double headed shower and the jetted whirlpool. The TV's in every room were great also. The couch is very comfortable and even the towels were fluffy and new. I love coming to the mountains in the fall every year and now I have another reason. This was a great stay and we will be back.
This is what they mean by a REAL mountain cabin!” We loved it! We've stayed at other cabin rentals and it felt like being in a neighbor hood with paved drives and house next to each other. The road to our cabin was graveled and steep but felt like you were going to cabin which made it part of the adventure. We had no problem driving our mid-size sedan in or out from our cabin. Views were great, wild life all around and peace and quite like a mountain cabin should be. When we retire, we would like to find a place like this to retire.
This cabin had just about everything. Big jetted tub, 2 headed shower, 5 televisions, Netflix, comfortable furniture and great mattresses. It was the most comfortable cabin we have ever rented in Coosawattee. From the front door on it seems like home. The owners left a pack of stuff for us, including a smore packet, handmade soaps, popcorn, and hot chocolate. Even treats for our little Boston Terrier. I was a great stay and we will be coming back to this cabin again. On the wall it says "Take a breath", and they mean it. I is just so relaxing and I recommend it 100%.
This was an outstanding spot. The cabin was all that the host said it would be and more. The river was beautiful. The location peacefully. We loved it and would stay again in a minute. The listing is exactly what you see. Close to town, but far enough away for privacy.
We have just been to paradise! We absolutely loved and enjoyed our stay and will be back for sure! The staff at Wilderness View Cabins have been excellent! Thank you again for the opportunity to visit heaven!
Many time the photos online make a place look better than it actually is. Not so here. The cabin was even better in person! Walking in we were met with soothing music, cozy lighting and the smell of a wood cabin that just can't be replicated. A small table was set for two next to a huge Jacuzzi tub surrounded by windows. A very well-appointed kitchen and sparkling cleanliness completed the picture. We didn't realize how much noise we are exposed to in our daily lives until spending 3 nights in this secluded wilderness. We will go back.
“We had an amazing time at this cabin. The interior was modern and clean. We went with some friends and enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit, pool table and beautiful scenery. The wifi and Netflix were also a nice touch. We highly recommend this cabin. ”
Great place to stay and hangout with friends or family. Lots of space to gather and enjoy the mountain view. Just know you will be driving on some steep curvy roads. Well worth it and most felt like they could compete in some road races after the stay
We loved how welcoming and "homey" the place was. It was private and we liked that as well.
“We couldn't have found a better escape than Ivy's River Cabin. What a hidden gem and the cabin surpassed my expectations. From the babbling brook right at the base of the cabin, to the cozy decor inside, this is truly a place to let your stress melt away. The bed was extremely comfortable, towels were of good quality and we felt at ease after a long day's hike. The grill, patio dining, hot tub and fire pit really added that extra touch. We could have stayed a few more days but had to get back to reality. We did request extra firewood last minute and our hosts were quick to respond and deliver without being intrusive. Thank you Ivy's Cabin!”
“Initially I wanted a cabin or lodge in Blue Ridge, GA, but we booked too late and had very few options to choose from. As fate would have it, I chose this lodge even though it's in a different county from Blue Ridge and I definitely do not regret it! As soon as we pulled up the driveway, we were greeted by the warm glow of the lodge. All the lights and the fireplaces were prepared for us, and the jacuzzi was already running. The cabin was immaculate in every way possible! We only went out to eat one time...the kitchen has everything you could possibly need and the grill works like a dream. I suggest that you stock up on food at the grocery store before you head up the mountain...it's about 20 minutes to the nearest grocery store making it difficult to go on a late night snack run. In the morning we enjoyed our coffee on the deck overlooking the mountains and fall colors. At night, we enjoyed a meteor shower while sitting in the jacuzzi. When we had issues turning the fire place on, Janice was very quick to respond and did not hesitate to send someone over to help. All the parks, breweries, and orchards were about 15-20 minutes away, but the driving through the winding roads and hills was half the fun in getting there. We loved staying in the lodge so much that it was a struggle to even get out to go do activities and adventures (and there are plenty of fun things to do!). While the guys were enjoying foosball and pool in the "man cave" downstairs, I got to have some quiet time by my own private fireplace in the master bedroom. We were all so sad to leave! I can't believe I didn't make this my first choice, and I would definitely book this place again in a heartbeat.”
The wife and I stayed in the Shanty Creek cabin this past week. We have been coming to the Wilderness View Cabins for many years. It should be noted that not all the cabins are available for rental now as they once were. The original owners Robert and Liz sold and have moved on. Shanty Creek is the perfect place for a couple to stay. There is a king size bed in the loft that is quite comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with most anything you would need to make a meal. There is a BBQ grill on the deck that will take care of whatever you may wish to grill. There is a nice hot tub on the covered porch that we used several times. In addition to the nice fireplace there is a fire pit in the rear yard area. We love Shanty Creek and recommend it. The slip proof treads on the steps are wonderful as on more than one occasion in the past I slipped and fell on my butt. There is a small flat screen tv with satellite service replacing the tiny tube tv that used to be here.The hot tub is showing its age but does work. The kitchen could use some additional plates, silverware, pots and pans but does pass for what you need most. The access road could use work but is navigable as long as you go slow and take it easy. The providing of the gate and door code a few days prior to arrival works great. In short if you're looking for a cabin experience in the north Georgia mountains give one of the cabins a try I truly think that you will enjoy your time. Last year we stayed at another cabin not on the wilderness view property and found it not nearly as enjoyable as wilderness view. It was quite nice it just did not give a 'mountain' cabin experience.
“Awesome cabin! We had 5 people and 2 dogs and there was plenty of room in the cabin for all of us. The place is 5 minutes down the road from Ft. Mountain State Park so there's lots of hiking/attractions nearby. We'll definitely be back! ”
“The home is cozy and clean. The kitchen seemed well equipped and the downstairs bar had plenty of glasses. There were two bedrooms on the main floor, one had a cute bunk bed. There was also a loft bedroom, suitable for older kids, and a sofa bed in the basement. The only bathroom is right off the main living space and is tight with a shower stall. The door was hard to close, but we found if you lift up hard and to the right it will latch securely. The gravel driveway is quite steep and curved. It's a bit tricky to navigate out in reverse in the dark. The stairs leading to the house and the stairs inside the house are a bit steep and narrow. There was an Apple TV on each floor and great wifi. There were games (wii, kiddie pool table, etc) in the basement. Also a washer and dryer (B.Y.O. Laundry soap). The hot tub was very nice and cozy. We very much enjoyed our quiet stay. ”
“This place was wonderful. The cabin itself is very cozy and the views (including from the hot tub) are really amazing. We enjoyed being so close to Fort Mountain State Park, which was beautiful. Definitely recommend Coyote Bluff.”
“We had a nice, quiet relaxing time @ the Shanty Creek cabin. So peaceful! And nice to be unplugged for a few days! ”
“The cabin was just as the pictures depicted. We arrived and fell in love. Each room was well kept and perfectly decorated. The drive up and down the mountain was fun. Had an issue with the fireplace but was immediately contacted on how to fix it. If your looking for family fun or just a great cabin this is it. ”
“The kids said this was their favorite vacation in a long time...and that's saying a lot since I'm a travel writer. We loved being together as a family, hiking, cooking s'mores, enjoying the hottub, keeping an eye on the mountains. Couldn't ask for a better cabin. Highly recommend.”
“Great place - convenient, and close to the road, but still private and secluded. Was a perfect spot for a short getaway weekend. ”
“Beautiful stay and would highly recommend. I would highly emphasize stopping at the store and getting all materials before heading to the cabin as its a long trip. Also, make sure you have everything as the cabin only contains basic kitchen items but doesnt have anything else (ie no coffee, no leftover spices or condiments). Great stay, thank you for the beautiful view!! Highly recommended!”
“Very nice cabin. Close to downtown, but definitely in the mountains! Enjoyed cartecay vineyards while we were there. Man cave a nice bonus because driving at night was a bit rough although if you're used to mountain driving you'll be fine. ”
“Exactly as described! The view from the upper and lower decks are amazing.”
“Great location in the wild and close to many hikes, you are in bear territory, I confirm that! We saw them...”
Awesome cabin! We arrived after dark and the cabin was lit up beautifully! Perfect get away for the weekend for our family.
“Gorgeous cabin, secluded but with awesome amenities and not far from town. We loved the porch during an afternoon storm and grilling out in the evening. Would definitely return with a larger party next time!”
“We had a great stay at the cliffhanger cabin. The house was lovely, as pictured, and we enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit very much. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed (2 sinks was a great bonus). The spot was very peaceful and secluded. We did have some trouble getting to and from the house in a Prius (we got stuck a few times) and the road could be especially tricky in a non-4WD if there's rain. Overall we had a wonderful time -- would highly recommend! But drive an SUV. ”
“The Raccoon Lodge Cabin was amazing! It really is better than the pictures suggest and was everything we wished for and more. Lot's of nifty little things to note: The upstairs bathroom has a special steam system to make your shower more luxurious, the stove is gas and the kitchen has ALL of the cookware you'll need, the cleaning crew leaves a detailed checklist of what all they checked/cleaned prior to your check in and they leave the lights on and relaxing music playing for your arrival, they keep an extra propane tank for the gas grill so you won't run out, and if you keep your eyes peeled, you'll see all sorts of wildlife and beauty in the surrounding countryside. Also worth noting is that the cabin itself has a fairly unique build style with wooden countertops, wood floors and walls, large windows, skylights, a murphy bed upstairs to compliment the main bedroom's king bed, cool bathrooms, etc. Regarding the area, the VIEW is exactly as good as pictured and the mountains are truly peaceful - sooo quiet :-) . Last thing I would mention is that the gravel road through the community (last 1 mile of your trip) is a little rough in spots. You can tell they repair it often, because there are spots with fresh gravel, but you will encounter a few ruts here and there that you will need to watch out for if in a low riding car - you don't need four wheel drive at all, but you would just need to take it slow here/there in a normal car. This is in the authentic mountains (not some tourist trap) though, so nothing out of the ordinary. My advice would be to get load up on supplies before arriving and enjoy your time in the cabin because you won't want to leave :-)”
“The perfect cabin for a mountain getaway! It's even better than the pictures and in the most beautiful area. We loved it.”
“We stayed a week and had a wonderful time at the cabin. We cooked every night in the cabin, thanks for dropping off some small saucepans. Everything was as described and the pictures are accurate. We enjoyed the wonderful pool, the hot tub and the beds were comfortable. Communication with Wilderness View was excellent and the responses were in less than 30 minutes. Thanks for making our holiday successful.”
“Very cute cabin in a fairly remote area. We saw a beautiful black bear on our first morning there. The hosts were very accommodating and responsive. I only wish we were there for a real vacation versus running from a hurricane.”
“Great cabin, great location,... The weather was amazing and the linens were clean. Everything worked well and my family and I had a great time. The road to the cabin was a bit precarious but it didn't rain so it wasn't too bad. The people taking care of us were accessible and very responsive. I would recommend this cabin, it was a very nice experience.”
