    • Best Girls Weekend Ever!

      Reviewed by Monique K. on March 16, 2017 for their trip during January 2017

      The cabin was awesome. Really well appointed. The kitchen was way better equipped than I expected. There was a crockpot, blender and even a mixer if you wanted to bake. The cabin was also really beautifully decorated. A group of 7 ladies went up for the weekend and had a great time. I would highly recommend!

    • Perfect for groups and an Atlanta big city getaway!

      My friends and I (8 total) were very comfortable in Buck Valley Lodge. We enjoyed the double masters and layout very much. It rained the first day we were there but we were able to check out a winery nearby we loved. Being able to get away from the city and have a mountain weekend with a firepit, smores, and hot tub time was exactly what we needed. Wish we could have stayed longer! We will be back!

      The cabin was beautifully furnished, superbly stocked kitchen, beautiful relaxing multiple porches to watch the sunrise with coffee in hand.....we had some wonderful family time. The master bedroom had one of "the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in" with a jaccuzi tub, and a walk=in shower, beautiful wood floors throughout....We will be back....

      Great house and well stocked. Would highly recommend this to any friends. The beds were comfy and the sheets were so soft. We had a little problem with the hot tub (the panel was locked) and was able to reach the owners right away. They were wonderful to work with and were able to fix the problem over the phone. We actually sat in the hot tub and could see deer walking around the property. River was a short walk from the house.

      We spent a weekend with three other couples at Buck Valley and it couldn't have been nicer. We've been doing this get together for 15 years now and we all agreed that this cabin was the nicest we've stayed in to date. It was very clean, updated, decorated so nicely and the location was perfect. We were five minutes from town but felt like we had all the privacy in the world. Loved the hot tub, pool table and fire pit! The owners were awesome, communicated everything we needed to know and found their area guide on their website so helpful to planning. We have already reserved our next get together for next year at Buck Valley Lodge and can't wait to get back!

      Reviewed by Kathy L. from Tampa, FL on August 15, 2016 for their trip during August 2016

      Myself, my husband and kids decided to get out of the Florida heat with my in-laws and head to the the Georgia mountains for some quality time. We chose Buck Valley Lodge for our stay and couldn't be happier. The owners, Ron & Alley were wonderful to deal with. They were very patient with all my questions and the communication throughout was fantastic. The cabin is located just a couple miles from the heart of town but when your at the cabin you feel like you have the wilderness to yourself. We must have seen 30 deer just in the yard itself throughout our stay. The short walk down the Coosawattee River was a favorite for the kids. Each morning they would walk down and do some fishing. The cabin itself was as nice as the pictures, if not nicer. It was very clean with comfortable furniture and beds. The kitchen had everything we needed to make all our meals. The cabin was very spacious and even with nine of us never felt crowded. Even with night time temps in the high 70's we couldn't resist using the hot tub almost every night. (I need one at home now)! I would recommend this cabin to anyone (we will be back next summer!)

      My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at Buck Valley Lodge! The home was very clean, bright (great windows throughout), and comfortable for our needs. The large dining table was great for our group of seven to gather around for meals and games. We loved playing pool in the gameroom and soaking in the hot tub. The river is great for relaxing, fishing & tubing. The owners were very attentive to our needs when we had a few questions upon our arrival. E. Walton Orlando, FL

    • Fantastic cabin exceeded our expectations!

      Reviewed by Sarah J. on June 04, 2016 for their trip during April 2016

      Everything from the booking process on went incredibly smooth. We have booked vacation homes over the past 15 years and this one really does stand out. The owners were incredible at communicating and gave us information on everything we asked for, plus more! The directions to the cabin were spot on, it was a easy quick drive from downtown Ellijay. The cabin itself was just as described. The pictures on the site are beautiful but it looks even better in person. What really stood out was how clean the cabin was, I wish I could get (and keep) my house that clean. We had a great time in the hot tub and the kids loved walking down to the river each afternoon. We took advantage of the huge indoor pool one afternoon while it was raining. Another favorite activity was sitting around the bon fire at night making S'mores. We have already reserved our next stay at Buck Valley for this fall to make more memories.

    • Friendly Birthday Getaway!

      Reviewed by Pamela W. on January 12, 2016 for their trip during January 2016

      We rented the cabin for my boyfriends 32nd birthday weekend and it was very nice and spacious for 8 adulta. The cabin was nicely decorated and very clean with pretty much everything labeled for the kitchen. There were no major complaints outside of us not having much dishwashing liquid to wash our pots and pans as we cooked quite a bit throughout the weekend. I thought it was extremely sweet that the owners called to make sure everything was OK and to let us know we could reach out if we needed too. Definitely recommend a stay at Buck Valley Lodge.

      Our family spent a week at Buck Valley Lodge for Christmas vacation and enjoyed it immensely. This beautifully decorated cabin is comfortable, tidy, and very clean. The balconies were favorites of everyone, but I especially liked the covered, screened porch. The kitchen is one of the most well-appointed kitchens I have seen in a vacation rental. It had everything we needed to prepare meals for our group of seven adults. It rained most of the week, so we were not able to explore the area very much, but we found lots to do inside. We played pool, board/card games, watched the deer, and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The owners were very helpful and promptly returned our phone calls. They have made every effort to ensure a pleasant vacation for their guests. They even went to the trouble of putting up a Christmas tree for our celebration! I would recommend this cabin to anyone visiting the Ellijay/Blue Ridge area.

      Quiet and Peaceful! Beautiful view! Spacious and comfortable . We were a group of 8 and we had plenty of space and privacy. My suggestion for future guest looking for the recreation center and pools......follow the map provided (BUT) easiest way is use maps to get to one of the four gates .....and start there and go through different gate to access different pool verses driving roads through the mountains. Less confusing and faster route... The mountain is beautiful and the deer were so pretty! Thank you Ron & Sandy! The Groetzner-Smiths

      This cabin was a perfect getaway. It was tucked away, but a short drive into town. We saw deer everywhere, as hunting is not allowed in the resort area. I can't say enough nice things about the cabin itself- the furnishings were new and comfortable. The owners were in touch to ensure we had all that we needed. My tip would be to read the resort booklet upon arrival, drive around and locate the pools/parks etc. The most fun we had was tubing/kayaking, offered by a few companies in the area.

      The cabin was very spacious with plenty of room for the nine of us. Clean and well maintained with everything you need for a relaxing getaway with the family and/or friends. The cabin layout provided plenty of privacy. Close enough to town to run get any supplies you may have forgotten or groceries for cooking meals in the fully stocked kitchen. The owners were very nice and easy to talk to. They have worked hard to provide a great vacation experience. In the cabin is a book with detailed instructions for using the resort amenities and excellent directions to area activities, shopping, and dinning. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it. We will definitely visit again.

      We had a group of 9 with a gaggle of kids and some pups. The cabin was wonderful, secluded, and well-stocked. It was also near to several pools and parks on the local river (one within a half mile walking distance), and we were close enough to the Toccoa to have an early morning trout fishing trip. The owners were also easy to communicate with. Highly recommended.

      My husband and I, along with daughter, son-in-law, two young grandchildren (ages 2 and 3 months), and a golden retriever stayed at this cabin for a long weekend. We found the cabin in excellent condition when we arrived - clean, bright, and welcoming, and exactly as described. The furniture was comfy and we had everything we needed, including good WiFi. The layout was perfect for us, as my daughter and husband and the kids could stay in the two main floor bedrooms while my husband and I had the downstairs master to ourselves. It was nice to have a place where the dog was welcomed. We went to the recreation area once and used the indoor heated pool, which was huge and very nice. We were sorry we didn't have a chance to use the firepit, maybe next time. Owners Ron and Sandy were quick to respond during the whole process and it was a very pleasant experience all in all. Would definitely recommend this cabin to other families.

      My family and I had such a great time at Buck Valley Lodge. We have stayed at the owners other cabin in the past and loved it so we thought we'd give this one a try. It did not disappoint at all. There was so much room to spread out and all of the furniture and beds were extremely comfortable. I have to find out where they get the pillows from, they are incredible! The cabin was extremely clean and had everything we needed. We loved sitting out on the decks and sipping our morning coffee then taking a short walk down to the river. The kids loved going to the indoor pool and playing for hours as well as playing in the game room. We did a winery tour one day and hiked to the waterfall. We love this area and will be back soon to stay at Bearadise or Buck Valley!
