Lovely, Homey Cabin
The pictures aren’t modified; it is exactly how amazing the cabin looks, the views are gorgeous and the cabin is about 1.5 miles away from the North Carolina border. Hot tub is big enough for about 8 people. I will say the phone maps lead you elsewhere. The right turn off Spur 60 is very sharp so slow down like 100 yards ahead of time. There is a lot of uphill climbs and steep descents down. The road starts off paved but goes to gravel. There is a sharp left on the gravel road as well. You don’t need a 4×4 or anything, just have to use caution and carry momentum. Ingles grocery store is about 20 minutes away. There is a dollar store about 5 minutes away. Bring your own firewood. As the directions state, I would not arrive after dark the first day and there is no cell signal on the way. Once you get to the cabin the WIFI works great!
We hated to leave!
We loved this beautiful cabin and hated to leave! There were 7 of us and the cabin was very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed playing games in the loft and watching movies on the big screen in the basement. Our favorite feature of the cabin was the screened in porch. There was plenty of room for all of us to sit out there and the outdoor was very comfortable. We enjoyed coffee and most meals out there. Our dog loved it as well, she could be out there with us and we didn’t have to worry about her. We will recommend to anyone we know wanting to make a trip to Blue Ridge.
10 Year Anniversary Celebration
I was invited to celebrate my friends 10 year anniversary with them . So happy that they share their experience with me. The cabin is so relaxing and has a feeling of home that I have never experienced before.I truly enjoyed the swing and the fireplace. So many great memories!
Warm, cozy and welcoming Cabin
We had a wonderful time. The cabin truly felt like home. The views are breathtaking. We really enjoyed the outdoor fireplace and the movie room. This cabin was a blessing. We thank you for sharing the cabin. God Bless
Peaceful setting with breathtaking views
Make sure you arrive before dark the first night as the roads up to the property are difficult to find at night. Great location, close to the NC and TN borders and just a short drive to Blue Ridge and surrounding areas. Owner has thought of every detail -plenty of games, firewood, tons of movies in the theatre room-even snacks/spices for you to use. They put a lot of thought into making your vacation experience seamless. When the DISH/tv service went out the management company came the same day and had service restored. We had a wonderful stay!
Everything you’ll want in a mountain getaway!
Awesome cabin with great communication from hosts. They followed up with me when I hadn’t opened an e-mail with key info inside, which I greatly appreciated. We loved the media room and played plenty of Scrabble up in the loft with a great view of the mountains. Can’t speak highly enough about the cabin. In fact, we plan to return later this year.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED!
This is a beautiful cabin. Very private and peaceful. Everything you could need, all the basic cooking utensils and spices. They even had coffee and bottled water for the coffee pot. We stayed for a week. and didn’t want to come home. You can sit on one of the three porches and watch the mountains change with the rising and setting sun. It’s breathtaking. We did see some deer roaming around the neighborhood. There is so much to do in the area. It’s really close to Murphy, NC and Blue Ridge. Also a short drive to Helen. We found the best BBQ we have ever had in Murphy at Rib Country. It’s only about a 20 minute drive from the cabin.
Great, affordable cabin
Fully stocked, excellent movie room and hot tub. Family and pet friendly or just an adult getaway.
Worth the Price!
Great place to relax and stay for the weekend with gorgeous views and amazing hot tub and movie theatre. Would definitely go back again!
3 Levels of Comfort
Beautiful and comfortable cabin in the a great location. Loved all three levels and spent most of our time on the screened porch at the main level. Hot tub is fantastic! Very comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. Holly is quick to communicate and very easy to work with throughout the whole process. Highly recommend!
Surrounded by Wildlife
Had a great few nights at The Pursuit. Lots to do and surrounded by beautiful wildlife. Lots of privacy and space. The hot tub and the movie room are a nice touch. Appreciated the attention to detail.
Peace and Tranquility
This cabin gives the vacation peace and tranquility for the time of stay. The rooms are equipped with a tv each and a bathroom inside the room or just a door away. The owners were very thoughtful with the kitchen necessities and fully stocked in coffee, cling film, foil and other basic seasonings.The balconies are on each floor and gave a nice view to the long range mountains. The setting of the home was based on a homely setting with casual furniture, wicker patio furniture, and a clean jacuzzi, which we didn’t use. The basement was well stocked with at least 50 movies and an entertainment area with its own kitchen. There were board games and other peaceful area to read if necessary.A great time to unwind. Thanks!
Great Outdoor Space for Relaxing
Beautiful cabin…plenty of space. Loved the outdoor space
The cabin itself was perfectly prepared for us. Everything was clearly written and labeled. We enjoyed the hot tub, the beautiful back porch view and the movie theater. It was a nice escape from the internet, but we still had enough wifi to be in contact with the outside world when necessary. The drive from the main road to the cabin wasn’t easy but it wasn’t terrible either. Kitchen is a small so don’t plan on cooking any feasts. Overall it was a lovely experience and we would stay there again.
Awesome hot tub
My husband and I spent a week at this cabin and had a very relaxing time! This place is secluded for privacy but very easy to access all the necessities. The porch swing was our favorite spot to enjoy coffee in the morning. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The hot tub was a fantastic added bonus!
Lots of Entertainment!
Fast communication and lots of movies and games.
Great entertainment room!
Cabin is in a great setting with privacy. Great fireplace (indoor and outdoor). very clean and every detail has been taken care of . If you are a movie buff, you will love the home theater. We will come back!
Beautiful cabin, clean with great amenities. It’s secluded, which is nice. It’s a lovely wooded area. Kitchen has everything we needed and the outdoor fireplace was a nice touch. Hot tub was huge and clean. The directions to the cabin must be followed exactly.
Great place to stay. Highly recommend. The hot tub was an added feature that made our mountain stay so nice. The woodwork, amenities and home like feel included coffee, soaps, comfortable pillows, and super comfortable mattresses and fireplace made the stay an A+
Wished we could stay longer!
The cabin is in a beautiful location and we had no problems finding it. The entertainment room downstairs is such a nice touch, and the cabin was well-stocked with towels and other amenities such as K cups and bottled water. We had such an amazing and relaxing girl’s weekend. Our one regret is that we didn’t stay longer!
Immaculate Cabin in the North Georgia Mountains
We had a beautiful and peaceful time at the cabin, spacious room for the entire family to relax and recharge. The cabin is ideally located, 10-15 minute drive to the conveniences of downtown Blairsville, and roads leading to Blue Ridge, Helen, and multiple state parks and trails in the Chattahoochee National Forest. The kitchen was well appointed, very spacious bedrooms each with a king size bed. The large and welcoming wrap around screened in porch was perfect for a morning cups of coffee and to relax at the end of the day. The porches had multiple seating and table area’s, a gas grill, hot tub, and a working fireplace. We enjoyed the selection of board games, smores over the firepit, and access to lake Nottely directly from the property.This was an immaculate cabin in the cool mountains of North Georgia. Perfect from start to finish. Great family cabin, we would absolutely stay here again!
Great Family Getaway
We loved everything about this cabin! We will definitely be back again. Super clean and well stocked
Pursuit of Happiness
The whole process of check in and out was great. The property was in perfect condition just as shown in the pics. The location was great as is near to Helen, Ga and a few waterfalls which is what we love to do. Will definitely return to this cabin, had an amazing time
Wonderful, relaxing 3 day vacation
We had the best 3 days! The cabin was perfect and relaxing. Unfortunately the hot tub was broken but that did not ruin our time. The beds were cozy and the outdoor swing was so inviting. The owners thought of everything to make our stay perfect.
Much Needed Getaway
It was picture perfect. The cabin was amazing and stocked like no other cabin I’ve been in. It had water, coffee, popcorn and wine. The only thing is the kitchen is really small and not a lot of room to put your own groceries as there isn’t a pantry. We made it work and loved it there.
An Amazing Experience
The property was amazing. The movie selection was amazing. The cleaning supplies provided were much appreciated. All of the extra special touches were so thoughtful. There was absolutely nothing that we needed that was not available for us to ensure that our three day getaway was most enjoyable. Thank you so much for all of the Extra Special Touches!! I had s great birthday!! We will definitely plan to return and bring our family along. Stay Safe Everyone!
Happiness is found at Pursuit of Happiness
We escaped Atlanta for a 10 day relaxation getaway with our adult children.
Great place for some quiet time. Short ride into town but isolated enough to get some peace! We were there with 4 adults and 3 children and had plenty of room in the house. It was super convenient to horseback riding and white water rafting.
We rented this cabin for a girls weekend and it was perfect!! There were 8 of us and everyone had plenty of space. The cabin was clean and very well stocked with everything you would need. We had a great time in the hot tub and they also have an amazing movie room with tons of movies to choose from. Another favorite was all of the porches. W?e loved sitting out on them in the mornings and looking out at the mountains. I will say it was a bit scary driving up and down the mountain in a 12 passenger van, but any other car should be fine! Also, if you plan on cooking beware that the kitchen is not very spacious, but it worked fine for the 8 of us.
Mountain getaway with the family. Cabin amenities exceeded our expectations. We will visit again.
This is a lovely cabin with lots of room for 6-8 people. Views are awesome and the porches are super relaxing-we spent almost all our time there. At night we hung out in front of the outside fireplace making s’mores or up in the loft working a jigsaw puzzle. The sound of the wind in the trees and birdsong is so peaceful-big change from. the suburbs. High recommend this place!
Amazing cabin with everything you need to have a peaceful and comfortable getaway. The location is great as well. Stores are within a short driving distance.
Pursuit of Happyness
We stayed in the Ga. mountain log cabin and everything was great; cabin was very nice, clean roads were well maintained. We could see other cabins but still had the privacy we were looking for.
We absolutely loved staying at Pursuit of Happiness! The location was perfect and so was the property. There were many options as to where to enjoy your stay. The outside areas to rest and relax were the highlight. Also, the best movie room I’ve seen out of any other property we have stayed. This place will be on our short list of places we’ll want to come back to. Loved it!!
New Years Getaway!
Very nice cabin! Clean and well furnished. Son really liked the theatre room, lots of movies on hand to pick from.
Good All Around
Great House, well maintained, well stocked, good use of the square feet. Off the beaten path but close to Blue Ridge. Would definitely return.

Beautiful Mountain Cabin
Relaxing and very tastefully decorated cabin. Clean, comfortable and perfect for our weekend getaway.
Exactly what we were looking for
We had an amazing getaway at Pursuit of Happiness. The cabin is cozy and comfortable and well stocked. The 3 levels each have a bedroom, bathroom and living space which makes it more comfortable to travel with other couples or kids. We brought our dog and she loved the 1 mile loop walk each morning in the neighborhood. Only 20 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge but tucked away so you feel like you have escaped. We can’t wait to go back!
Right at Home!
We have had the best time at your sweet cabin! It was just perfect! We love all the little perks that you have like the K-cups, water games, etc. I especially love how we can tell you have a love for dogs. Our Charlie and Gertie absolutely loved the back porch and the wind chimes that you put on their level so they could play music. We have fallen in love with Blue Ridge and can’t wait to come back. Thank you so much for your generous hospitality and letting us stay at your gorgeous cabin that made us feel right at home.
Perfect Get together for our Family.
We came from Kentucky and one daughter from PA to meet up with our daughter who lives in Gainesville. Pursuit of Happiness was everything we hoped it would be. We enjoyed our stay so much, spending evenings on the screened porch with plenty of seating for all, while we listened to our son-in-laws guitar playing and singing. The swinging bed was delightful to many. Our dog enjoyed walking the loop. Pursuit of Happiness fulfilled it’s purpose., bringing us much joy and sweet memories of our time together. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home that was the perfect get together place for our family.
What a Relaxing Weekend!
What a relaxing weekend we had! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful home and location with us! Our daughter, Jodie, planned this weekend get away for us so that we could all be together before our oldest son, Emmett, has to report to West Point next weekend. We will miss him so much! We enjoyed hiking to the swinging bridge, strolling through downtown Blue Ridge, and having ice cream, getting delicious BBQ from Blue Smoke BBQ, and making s’mores by your fireplace. We enjoyed your porches and views of clouds and seeing stars – all the simple pleasures of life. Your beautiful home was a perfect place to enjoy our family time and try to hold onto precious memories together. Thank you all so much!
Wonderful Vacation with Friends
Thank you for a wonderful stay with friends @ the Pursuit of Happiness. We enjoyed our time on the back patio and around the outdoor fireplace roasting marshmellows and enjoying drinks. The weather was perfect along with the setting. We took a fun day trip into Blue Ridge, Rode the Scenic Train to TN/GA border. Lunch was so-so @ Habeneros (don’t get the beef) But the rest of the trip was fun and memorable for our Family. Thanks So Much! The Florences, from Roswell, GA
My girlfriend and I rented this cabin for the weekend to celebrate our birthdays. The cabin was beautiful and relaxing. Scenery and location was amazing. Have to admit we were a bit disappointed in the water tho. Water had a strong, foul odor due to no filtration of sulphur and lead from the well. Us being people that enjoy long baths and showers this was definitely a let down. Owner would surely benefit from investing in a water filtration system and would solve the foul water smell. Other than the water issue tho, this was a beautiful cabin and we had an amazing weekend away. So much to do in the surrounding areas. Would recommend this cabin to others for the views and the cabin itself but would warn them about the water.
Amazing Cabin Home
We had a great time at this rental. They really made an effort to make sure that you had a nice time and the home had everything you could want and was very organized and clean. We will be renting again next time!!
Love EVERYTHING about the cabin!
My husband and I came here to celebrate out 10th anniversary. Loved the mountain views, big hot tub, cozy home like feeling, balcony. Somewhat isolated but safe area. Also loved how personalized everything in the cabin is. Short distance to Tennessee, North Carolina and all the attractions.
Perfection in the Mountains
Pursuit of Happiness is a gem. The house us beautifully appointed down to the fixtures. It was spotless and cozy. There was more than enough room for our family of six. The bottom floor bedroom and media room was a perfect teen spot. The back porch was perfect for all of us. Our pup loved being able to roam on the gated wrap around porch. The only change I would recommend is adding some light in the main floor bedroom. A standing lamp light on the dresser would help tremendously. Other than that everything was just what we needed.
