With mild temperatures and beautiful scenery, there is no better place to be than in a beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain Cabin Rental. Each year the Appalachian forest offers a great show of colors from the highest elevations first and sweeps down into the lower valleys. Each October the Blue Ridge Mountains come alive in a celebration of the changing of the seasons. One such event is the Georgia Mountain Fall Festival. This 9-day event features exciting musical performances, educational demonstrations, a flower show and the ever popular Georgia's Official State Fiddler's Convention. A new attraction this year is the Swampmaster. You can sit back and watch as the swampmaster catches an 8 foot, 200 lb alligator with his bare hands! For the little ones you can even have their picture made holding a baby alligator safely. After a day at the festival come home to a beautiful, privately secluded Blue Ridge Mountain Cabin Rental. Crooked Creek is surrounded by the beauty of the mountains as well as the natural creek that runs only 50 feet from the cabin. Crooked Creek sits at the foot of the Chattahoochee National Forest which is perfect for planning your own private hiking adventure. Drink that morning cup of coffee, sitting on the back porch listening to the sounds of Wilscot creek babbling by or catch a glimpse of wildlife grazing nearby. Plan family night by roasting marshmallows and making s'mores sitting around the outdoor fire pit telling stories. After the kids go to bed, relax those sore muscles in the six person hot tub located on the lower deck just 50 feet from the creek. Whatever your adventure maybe, rest assured that Cabin Rentals of Georgia will welcome you home and help make memories that will last a lifetime.
