Where to stay in Blue Ridge

Although Blue Ridge offers a good selection of budget-friendly bed and breakfasts and luxury resorts, the easiest way to experience this scenic part of Georgia may be to stay at a mountain cabin. The area surrounding Blue Ridge boasts many privately owned vacation cabins. Many offer spacious rooms andΒ their own fireplace and hot tub, plus unbeatable mountain views and lots of privacy. For something a little more rugged, consider staying at a campground offering both tent and trailer sites.

  • We rented a very nice cabin in Blue Ridge for an extended weekend getaway and decided to stop here for breakfast upon our departure. That was an excellent choice! On weekends they offer an all-you-can-eat country breakfast buffet from 7am-12pm for $10.99 and it is wonderful! It's not necessarily a classy joint, but it's a very fun homegrown kind of place. Also connected is a huge bakery and country store. Absolutely amazing desserts! The apple fritters are to die for. I will definitely return!
  • This place is lovely. It's a serene environment. The vineyard is beautiful. We did a wine tasting for only $8 and that includes a wine glass. We walked the grounds. It was so romantic and breathtaking. It made my honeymoon that much more special. The costumer service was spectacular they really care about their products and their customers. πŸ–’πŸ½πŸ–’πŸ½πŸ–’πŸ½πŸ–’πŸ½
  • GREAT Apple Orchid. Has a super good restaurant. A Bakery to die for!!.Their fried Apple pies are the best ever. Several small shops inside that carry quaint things,just added a winery and wine and hard cider tastings. A very popular visitors attraction.
  • My husband and I were there on vacation. We were encouraged to stop by and order the fried pies. We did and they were outstanding! We decided to have some shipped home so our daughter could some. We were told by the sales lady they were shipped in dry ice and they came just as perfect as they are from the display case. She also said they were packed in a way that they were well protected. That was not the case. We ordered 6. There were three to a box and they were smashed together. They were laid on top of each other and the dough was sticking together. You couldn't get them out without tearing big holes in them. They were really mushy. It was pleasant. The fried pies are wonderful but don't ship them, enjoy them while you are there!
  • I love going to Mercier! We've been for both strawberry and apple u-pick. Their store has everything you could want. Their sweet potato fried pies and apple cider donuts are my absolute favorite! It definitely gets busy on the weekends in the fall for apple season. The only thing I'm disappointed in, is they are no longer doing u-pick apples in October, which is when I loved going, since it actually feels like fall then. I'm not a fan of picking apples in August in 90 degree heat. Please bring October back!
