Horse Collar Lodge gets its name from it's decoration theme. You'll find country/western decor with a tasteful infusion of urban luxury...a unique but yet very refreshing combination that is sure to provide you and your group a top-notch vacation experience.
The main level features an open floor plan with a rock fireplace, a large television, and a cushy leather sofa in the living area. Also on the lower level you'll find a neat, easy to get around kitchen and dining area anchored by a spacious island for preparing meals or holding your favorite snacks during a movie. Furthermore, you'll find a spacious bedroom with a queen and a set of bunkbeds, a bathroom, and a large, bubbling hot tub out on the deck.
The upstairs houses the master bedroom and a loft area with a daybed. This provides a perfect area for kids to camp out in, with floor space for board games or toys.
Downstairs in the basement is the pool table - a brand new, regulation sized table.
Horse Collar Lodge is very close to whitewater rafting outfitters on the Olympic Ocoee River. It is also close to dining and other attractions in the mountains of North Georgia and East Tennessee, such as Horseback Riding, Biking Trails, Scenic Trains, and Shopping. Horse Collar is also just a short drive away from sites and scenes in Historic Downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia.

I stayed in Simplicity with a group of four plus two hound dogs, and I could not be happier with our trip. This cabin is so relaxing and had everything we needed, from kitchen supplies to linens to games. The view out the back is beautiful, and the nearby town is too cute for words. Thanks for a great weekend!

My husband and I enjoyed our weekend trip to Blue Ridge. This cabin was in a great location and convenient enough to the town of Blue Ridge yet far enough away to feel like you are getting away from it all. We would love to come back!

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights with our two dogs. The cabin is beautiful and peaceful. Bryans instructions to the cabin were easy to understand and we were only a 10-15 minute drive from all of the good shopping and restaurants in Blue Ridge. Wi-fi is our only recommendation for improvement, as service can be shaky in the area. Overall, had a great time and would stay again!

The cabin is just as pictured--charming with comfy furniture. Great deck with beautiful view. We loved the pool table in the loft space! Perfect cabin for a family of four like ours. The cabin is at the end of a long gravel road, but we made it just fine without 4-wheel drive.

Review #19480752 Dogwood Dream- Close To Blue Ridge And Ocoee River
Amazing! Great location with wonderful views!
My family and I stayed at the Dogwood Dream cabin for labor day weekend. Overall our stay was wonderful! Inside the cabin you have access to everything you could ever need; from games for the kids of all ages to extra comforters and blankets for those who just always seem to be cold to plenty of cookware to prepare big family meals. The owners seem to have thought of everything you and your family would need so that your stay is comfortable and worry free. Outside of the cabin you can enjoy romantic sunsets from the hot tub out on the patio and roasting marshmallows by the firepit. We especially enjoyed that you get the mountain views without any roads or noisy traffic obstructing the relaxing feel. Dogwood Dream cabin is just minutes from Blue Ridge Lake and downtown Blue Ridge restaurants and shopping. My family plans to make an annual escape to Dogwood Dream and we suggest that you and your family does too!

Better than advertised
Large rooms, decorated beautifully.
Kitchen with high end appliances and numerous small appliances.
Master bathroom with large claw foot tub was superb.
The outside porch areas were magnificent. Plenty of places to sit and relax and hear the sounds of the water from nearby creek. Enjoyed our time at the covered swing by the creek.
I will book this cabin again. Only one request to the owner - outside porch fans would be great!!!
Management company prompt to answer my questions and very friendly.

Sarah P gave this review of her stay at Phoenix Ridge- Bryan was a great host - communication was easy via the Mountain Escapes office phone. The house was WAY more than expected in size and beauty. I would definitely recommend it. Our only issue was in finding the home, the mailbox isnt marked with the house number but there was a ME sign to help us. Overall a great stay (just be sure to bring games and movies as cell service is hard to get!

Our trip from the Atlanta airport was delayed by a meltdown at the car rental agency when we had to wait over two hours to get a car and then, when finally we had one, it was FWD, not the AWD/4WD wed ordered. When we went to collect our SUV, one in our party spoke to a manager, said we were sad because we didnt get the SUV wed ordered and that wed not be able to make it up the road to the cabin we rented. Were a group of 64-to-72-year old camp friends of over 50 years whod planned this solar eclipse trip from Texas/CT to TN since we last saw each other in the winter. Well, the manager took pity on us and gave us an AWD Volvo. We were late to arrive at the cabin and, without going into too much detail, were led there by a local restaurateur who helped us open the gate--definitely bring a flashlight, headlamp preferred--and led us up the twisting, gravely hill. The Volvo climbed it effortlessly. But make no mistake, no matter how good you think you are at off-road driving, its unlikely youll climb that hill with front or rear wheel drive. Bryan, a consummate host, made this very clear in the reviews but let me tell you, once you get up there, you find a mountain paradise. Though we had just 3 days there, we made the most of it, enjoying the hot tub that looks over the mountains, cooking smores at the campfire, playing the banjo, singing, gazing, visiting and grilling on the porch. The cabin has just one bathroom and those who sleep upstairs must come outside, then enter the main cabin to access it. But hey, thats part of the charm and, besides, were old campers used to wooden outhouses. In fact, the women who slept upstairs had such deep sleeps we had to go awaken then each morning. Now dont get me wrong the bathroom was perfectly appointed and accommodated we five women perfectly. There were quaint decorations inside the cabin with plenty of bears, fish and moose in the motif. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils, dishes, pots and pans. We were all delighted with our eclipse sojourn in Copperhill and were so grateful we found this cabin. On another note, folks around here were so very friendly and helpful and there is so much to do from kayaking/tubing to hiking to driving country roads. The cabin, our host, Bryan, and the area were just spectacular!

Spent the eclipse weekend in this great off the beaten path cabin. Just what the doctor ordered! The road leading up is not as bad as I have read in other reviews - my Cadillac made it up with no problems. If you put the address into Waze it will take you right to it.

Review #18767745 Close to downtown Blue RidgeGA and the Ocoee River area
This cabin is secluded, peaceful, and has a covered porch that is hard to pull yourself away from.
We loved this property. The pictures dont do it justice. The owners/management team were super nice when I called with a couple of questions...they made me feel welcome and not troublesome or bothersome. Even made a trip out to show me something that I should have figured out myself. Good people. Really good, kind people. The cabin is right outside the Cherokee National forest. You have an amazing drive along the Ocoee and the cabin isnt far away. There is so much space to spread out, especially if you have children. Totally secluded, private, the covered porch is a dream, and easy to get to. You wont go wrong with this cabin. Its a tad nicer in person than the pictures seem to show. Detailed cabin, huge laundry room, great mattresses, excellent WiFi for all of us, keurig, and hot tub.

This cabin was budget and pet friendly and had an amazing view! The third bedroom located in the basement with only outside access.. The view really was awesome and there were bar stools to sit on at the "breakfast bar". The hot tub was clean and worked well. Overall, the cabin worked out OK for the group and Bryan was good to work with - he gave us a late check out and recommendations on hiking trails, etc. upon request.

Beautiful cabin and lovely scenic view. Location is great for visiting local scenery, we visited several beautiful waterfalls close by with nice hikes. The cabin is high in the hills and the road is not paved all the way up, I have a low driving Cadillac an SUV or truck would be more suited to the road up and down. We managed though and had a great stay.

Review #18128476 Denali 5br/4ba plus treehouse suite- sleeps 14
Such an amazing place!!!
This is an amazing home!! It is very spacious, extremely clean and secluded. We ended up with a group of 12 and everyone slept comfortably. It also has an amazing view from the back porch!! Theres a huge hot tub on the basement level (outside). Theres also a small pool and air hockey table in the basement. The home is approximately 10 minutes from downtown. GPS says 15 but it takes about 5 full minutes from the home to the main highway.
Theres also a treehouse suite that is accessible from the home. You have to access it from an outside door which was awesome for my 13 year old son!! It has its own tv, refrigerator, stove, couch and bed high in the sky!! The management and/or owners were extremely nice. They made sure that someone answered all of my questions even during our stay. It is deep in the woods so be prepared with an SUV or a four wheel drive vehicle if possible but this is not mandatory. I cant say anything bad about the location. I love this place. I will definitely book here again.

If you enjoy privacy and watching wildlife, then this cabin is for you. We were there for three days and two nites and saw deer, turkeys, coyotes, and lots of rabbits. The cabin alone is gorgeous, both inside and out. Well come back to this cabin again and again.

Do not be fooled by the mundane pictures....the cabin is AMAZING!!! It is big and beautiful and SO quiet. There is a tin roof that sings in the rain, a fireplace that is a true work of art and a kitchen that I personally would kill for. The master is privately tucked in upstairs with a full size bath and the laundry room. On the main floor is a big room with a queen sized bed and then a third bedroom with two twin beds. All of the bedding and furniture are nicely appointed. The towels are of very good quality and the kitchen appliances are brand new stainless steel LGs. There is a large pantry to put your groceries away in. The Hot tub is very nice and comfortable and the gas grill is very convenient. My only word of advice is that you take all groceries that you may want with you and that you be sure to take a vehicle with plenty of ground clearance...there is a creek crossing that would be very difficult for a small car to make. The creek is neither deep or fast so you wont flood, but getting into and out of the creek could be a challenge. Also there is virtually no coverage at the property if you have verizon and there is neither internet nor wifi. They do have DirectTv...but to be honest, once we got over the shock of being completely unplugged, we really did enjoy it and did not even turn o n the TV. I cannot recommend this property enough, it really is beautiful and an excellent value.
