Falcons Nest- Pet Friendly | River Front Home | Outdoor Fire Pit | Fightingtown Creek

Riverfront cabin with kitchen and fireplace
If you'd love to wake to the soothing sound of rushing water, and have it lull you to sleep at night, the Georgia mountain cabin rental Falcon's Nest will be music to your ears. Just remodeled, and built into a mountainside canyon ridge and perched high above whitewater rapids, this tri-level showplace gives you a spectacular view from every angle from its windows and decks.

Located on Fightingtown Creek in McCaysville, 10.5 miles from downtown Blue Ridge, Falcons Nest is a tranquil, picturesque retreat in a wooded wonderland with 1000 feet of private waterfront. Named for the nests of falcons you may spot as you walk through the property and the surrounding woods, the cabin is like the treehouse you loved as a child, only bigger, more beautiful and outfitted with all the comforts and amenities you want on vacation. Outdoor activities like hiking and fishing and the shops and restaurants of Blue Ridge are just minutes away.

Inside, Falcon's Nest is warm and inviting, decorated in a mix of modern styles with industrial touches like exposed pipes, metal stairs and ceiling structures. The main living area is open and spacious, perfect tor gathering and relaxing with a 65" smart TV providing Roku for your evening of entertainment. The modern, full stocked kitchen, with its ample cabinets, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, electric stove and oven, in-fridge icemaker, crockpot and drip coffeemaker, makes meal preparation a breeze. Including the three-seat breakfast bar, there's seating for eight if you're eating inside, and lots more seating on the deck if you want to fire up the gas grill for a cookout.

Afterward, you can enjoy a soak in the hot tub and warm yourself by the fire pit by the water's edge, or head inside to the living room to settle in and watch the flat screen TV mounted above the fireplace.

When it's time to turn in for the night, you'll choose from four comfortable, airy and soothingly appointed bedrooms that accommodate a total of eight guests. The master bedroom occupies the entire main level, and has a king bed, deck access, smart TV with Roku, electric fireplace and private bath. Two bedrooms on the lower level have king beds, deck access, TVs, one with private bath, and the fourth bedroom has a king bed. There are three full baths, plus a half bath on the upper floor.

The cabin's other amenities include WiFi, laundry facilities, and paved driveway. But the best thing about Falcon's Nest is intangible: it's the carefree, relaxed feeling that comes over you from the moment you arrive at this tranquil paradise and stays with you until you leave.

5/5 Excellent

Very relaxing and plenty to do!
Stayed with family for a yearly vacation. Plenty of room for all and lots to do! Enjoyed by all!!

1/5 Terrible

Keep looking
Our check in time was at 3pm got there and cleansers had just started so I called property manager and she told me I should just go shopping. Pretty lame response I would’ve just liked a phone call as a courtesy to let me know they were running behind not tell me to run errands that I had already done before my scheduled 3pm check in. Cleaners didn’t finish until around 6pm and the house smelled like pure cigarettes. The house has a lot of deck space which is nice but there is no under decking so when it rains all decks get soaked and are useless. I stay in a lot of cabins in north Georgia and in this price range there are a lot better on the water.

5/5 Excellent

Very peaceful, private, and relaxing. Would highly recommend and would stay again.

Great place, great location
Overall a wonderful place to stay. Easy access in and out, dirt road was fine. The house driveway was great, concrete, huge, fit 1 crewcab pickup and two small SUVs and plenty of room to turnaround. Everything worked great. A/C, hot water, etc., Location is 8 minutes to maccaysville about 20 minute to downtown Blueridge. 40 minutes to Blairsville (shout out to Lake Nottely Marina, fantastic people, great boat / jetski). Amazing lake!!!! Plenty of space of 6 adults. The river was wonderful. Too cold to swim...but you could if it warmed up. (does move swiftly though). Very quiet and peaceful. Internet was good, about 25-30mbps download. (ETC cable). They could upgrade the speed and it would be even better. Hot tub worked perfectly, very nice. A few small things; no seating down by the firepit, recognize its close to the river, like 10 feet away, so bring your own chairs. Patio furniture i am sure was great when it was new, getting a bit worn out. Family room couch and chairs a bit worn out, might be time for chairs replacement (couch was comfy though, chairs not so much). Kitchen fully stocked, great. All appliances worked perfectly. Would recommend, and would rent again.

Better than the pictures
This place is amazing, huge, super roomy, beautiful views out of the tons of windows. Only one neighbor that you could hardly see. The river was beautiful. Fireplace in the living room was amazing! Loved our get away.
