Escape the Stress of Everyday Life this Season and Get Away to the Mountains
If you had to choose one place to celebrate the holiday season, where you could escape the stresses of everyday life and focus on spending time friends and family, where would it be?
For many people, the first answer that comes to mind is the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the charming north Georgia city of Blue Ridge.
Only a 90-mile drive from Atlanta, GA, Blue Ridge is an easily accessible getaway destination from close by cities Chattanooga, and Asheville. Surrounded by 106,000 acres of the pristine Chattahoochee National Forest, Blue Ridge is a special kind of town where smiles are abundant and peace is prevalent; where locals and visitors alike explore hiking trails and marvel at magnificent waterfalls.
A trip to north Georgia is great any time of year, but during the holidays, Blue Ridge transforms into a winter wonderland where friends and family gather inside a cozy cabin, cuddled up around the fire with a cup of hot cocoa, as Christmas gifts are passed around and memories are made. It ‘s here that the magic of the season can truly be found.
There are many different cabin rental companies in Blue Ridge to choose from, but one stands above the rest: Mountain Top Cabin Rentals. For over 14 years, Mountain Top Cabin Rentals has been a premiere luxury cabin rental provider in Blue Ridge. In addition to cabins, Mountain Top Cabin Rentals also offers several properties in the heart of Downtown Blue Ridge for those wishing to be in the middle of the charming historic downtown. Mountain Top lists about 65 luxury hand selected cabins for rent. Some cabins are even close to each other, for large groups looking to stay together within walking distance. They offer water frontage cabins, Mountain View cabins and wooded setting cabins. Some cabins are pet friendly, for those wishing to bring their furry family members along.
Owners Mark Burger and Tabetha Whitaker have been operating Mountain Top Cabin Rentals since the company opened in 2003. “ We have a great team, all of us work hard and support each other. Hospitality, customer service, and Blue Ridge tourism have always been our team’s passion. We strive to offer the best possible rentals and service. Our priority is that each guest has a wonderful Blue Ridge experience,” says Whitaker. While reading reviews and articles across the web and magazines, it’s easy to note that top rated customer service is just one of the many things that keep customers coming back. As of 2017, Trip Advisor has recognized Mountain Top Cabin Rentals with the “Certificate of Excellence” award for several years running. The cabins are all located in Fannin County and are generally only a 10– 20 minute drive from Downtown Blue Ridge. Whitaker says they limit the number of properties they manage to maintain the quality of their inventory and uniqueness of each rental and that they are more concerned with quality versus quantity, making sure that all properties reflect their brand image.
The team members at MTCR understand the importance of area knowledge and know the area well as they are all natives of the Blue Ridge area. Each agent is ready to assist in making a reservation or suggesting local hiking trails to waterfalls, the great restaurant or a local favorite for breakfast. All of the office team members are friendly, professional, and have local insider knowledge plus the insight on all of the tourist must do’s while visiting.”
During the holidays, Mountain Top’s luxury cabin rentals reflect the cheer and jubilation of the season, as most of the properties are carefully decorated for Christmas, adding to their already impressive ambiance.
Christmas is a huge holiday in Blue Ridge and the staff at Mountain Top Cabin Rentals loves for guests to experience the charm and nostalgia of a mountain Christmas. The team can make reservations for you with the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway and Blue Ridge Community Theater, saving guests at least 10% off regular ticket prices. During the holiday season kids will enjoy the Santa’s Express Train with Santa onboard and for the adults there’s the New Year’s Eve Train. For the holidays there’s always a Christmas tree in the office with presents under the tree so any child that comes in during the whole month of December gets a gift and a treat bag. Even visiting dogs get a treat! With the personal care and attention to detail given to each reservation, you’ll enjoy the perfect Christmas vacation in the mountains.
If you’re looking to add a little something special to your stay, the team suggests one of their gift baskets. Multiple gift baskets are offered, including ones designed for a romantic getaway with champagne, strawberries, whipped cream, and candles. Other baskets vary in themes, like the “Ultimate Snack Basket” great for game day football gatherings and the “Gourmet Fudge & Wine Basket”, which boasts delicious homemade, award-winning fudge from Three Sisters Fudge, a well-known shop in Downtown Blue Ridge. You can also order baskets for breakfast and dinner, if you chose. An additional service that can be added to make your experience perfect are in-cabin massages by Teatrees Boutique Spa.
