At the Bunkhouse at Damascus Ranch you get to enjoy an exciting taste of the Old West in the peaceful and serene North Georgia mountains. This new 2 story 2 bedroom log cabin that is nestled in the woods is in the most peaceful setting you can imagine with year round views and activities inside and out.
To get to the Bunkhouse at Damascus Ranch you drive on Damascus Trail with its breathtaking ten-mile view of the Cohutta Mountains. You go by the 14-stall stable that locals use to board their horses before you continue on up the hill past the original ranch mansion and through the woods.
Here you will find your western-style temporary home away from home. Since this cabin sleeps 6 - 7 if you count the couch, bring your whole posse!
Cross over the bridge and take off your "boots" at the Bunkhouses front door and walk right into the old West...with all the modern conveniences like Free WIFI, a Gas fireplace and Flat screen TV’s of course. Immediately your attention will be drawn to a spectacular view of ”Damascus Peak” as seen through the family room windows.
There are charming touches everywhere such as the cowhide on the floor and the antique water bucket and rope hanging from the ceiling. Want some mood lighting? Turn the light on in the bucket! Yep, they thought of everything here and that’s why young and old, everyone loves this place.
Imagine stepping back in time and throwing that bucket down the well to haul up your water. Today you can just grab a fruit jar from the kitchen cabinet and turn on a faucet when you’re thirsty. Yeah, we have indoor plumbing...had to get it when the outhouse burned down!
Be very careful to not let the Canadian goose land on your head when you walk up the steps. On the way to the bedrooms you can gently touch the buffalo hide hanging in the hallway.
The bedroom at the end of the hall is the most unique one east of the Mississippi River. All the ranch hands will love the bunk beds, while the tenderfoots can stay in the other bedroom with the queen bed that has 800 thread count sheets and the adorable white fallow deer.
After you have settled in, meander down...then up...a short path to the Bunkhouse cypress swings. Enjoy the sway of the swings and the fresh North Georgia mountain air while you take in the 10 mile mountain view, pastures, and if they are grazing in the fenced field - horses.
...OR take the real horseshoes (regulation available, if you’re a pro) to play a game.
...OR play lawn darts outside...magnetic darts inside if it rains.
...OR soak in the inviting and soothing hot tub on the Bunkhouse back porch anytime.
...OR rock on the front porch while listening to the birds. Keep your eyes open for Woody!
...OR enjoy any of the other wonderful activities the North GA area offers.
As the sun starts to set, start a campfire with the wood provided in the horse ring fire pit. Use our patent-pending skewers to cook your grub while reliving your day and planning tomorrow. The Bunkhouse has kitchen gadgets galore, but food just tastes better outdoors - especially when cooked over an open fire and shared around the Bunkhouse picnic table.
We recommend turning off your new-fangled electronics while you are staying here at the Bunkhouse. Relaaaax!! But if you suffer withdrawal symptoms, there is Free High Speed Internet via Wi-Fi, 2 flat-screen TV’s and DVD/CD players, and if that is not enough, you can get good cell phone reception up here.
So come ’on you city slickers! Saddle up your Mustang...or whatever you drive! Go West young partner to the wilds of North Georgia and enjoy a taste of the West at the Bunkhouse at Damascus Ranch!
Your Bunkhouse is the perfect place for a true mountain experience - clean, comfortable, and full of authentic cabin-style amenities like the beautiful fire pit area and THE COOLEST bunk beds we've ever seen!. The view from the back porch made us feel as like we were a million miles from civilization although it was just a short drive to Blue Ridge. We really enjoyed the full kitchen and large living space - perfect for sharing meals, playing games, and just lounging around. Anyone looking for a place to unwind in the mountains, should come here!!
