Above The Timberline
Experience a true mountain getaway as you travel to Above the Timberline located in the heart of the Aska Adventure Area, which is so descriptive of this special luxury property, taking its name from a favorite song by Five for Fighting. Traversing on paved roads high above the timberline in an upscale community will give you a thrill of anticipation as you immerse yourself completely in the mountain experience - a place where you can "almost touch the stars hanging over you".
This charming lodge-style 4 bedroom/3.5 bathroom cabin is cozy enough for a romantic getaway for a weekend, yet spacious enough for three couples or two families for a week with its open floor plan and bedrooms on each of the three floors. Above the Timberline offers a warm rustic decor with tongue-and-groove walls, a mixture of hardwood floors and carpet along with luxurious furnishings in every room with subtle wildlife-themed accents sprinkled throughout, offering an authentic mountain atmosphere.
If it's adventure you are seeking, you are in the midst of everything the North Georgia Mountains has to offer. Start your day kayaking down the Toccoa River, hiking or mountain biking the many trails located nearby, fly-fishing in the Toccoa River, water-skiing on Lake Blue Ridge with boat ramps nearby (if you own your own boat), or skeet-shooting nearby. For the slower paced adventure-seekers, tubing down the Toccoa River is a favorite among many, as well as renting a very nice pontoon boat on Lake Blue Ridge with picnic in hand. The scenic drives throughout this area are breathtaking no matter the time of year, and you will lose yourself in all of our North Georgia Mountain beauty.
When you've worked up an appetite, you will find this well-stocked kitchen a joy to prepare memorable meals, while still mingling with friends and family in the openness of this charming home. With the offering of ample seating at the dining table and breakfast bar, the savor of your meals will be enhanced with breathtaking panoramic mountain views.
After dinner, spend the evening sipping wine in front of the cozy outdoor fireplace, or enjoy ample outdoor seating offering different beautiful mountain vignettes to absorb. Head downstairs and challenge a willing competitor to a game of pool, or watch movies on the big screen in luxurious individual leather seating in front of a cozy fire. RIght outside, soak your cares away in the hot tub while "touching the stars and kissing the moon". As you feel the pace of life slow down, you look forward to the best night's rest you've had in a long time.
Each bedroom offers luxurious mattresses, linens, and mountain rustic furniture. Two luxurious king bedrooms await you - a King Suite on the main level with separate shower, bath, and double vanities. The second King bedroom is on the terrace level, sharing a bathroom with a twin bed in a little sweet spot under the stairs. A Queen bedroom and a Twin bedroom can be found upstairs with a shared bathroom. Restive repose can be found here, and you will awaken refreshed and ready for a new day as you deeply breathe in the fresh mountain air above the timberline.
When you need to get out of town and "clear that noggin", "you need to find a mountaintop…where things get slower and it's harder to breathe…at the top of the world…you're listening to the wind". Bring your family and friends to a place that offers a lovely setting to toss your cares to the winds and watch them float away…Above the Timberline.
