  • A wonderful experience

    This place is secluded, comfortable, has everything you could possibly need, and the owners are friendly. I'd recommend staying here to just about anyone.

  • Our Favorite Cabin Yet!

    My family and I have rented cabins in the North Georgia Mountains for the past 12 years. We've stayed in small loft style cabins to huge 6 bedroom cabins. Without a doubt Bearadise is our hands-down favorite. It's large enough for everyone to have their own space but at the same time we immediately felt warm and cozy. The decor is perfect cabin without being over done. The location was great, we were close enough to town to not be a chore to run to the store but it's also so secluded that you feel like you are on your own mountain. We were concerned not going through a cabin rental company like we always had before. Ron & Alley were great to deal with and provided us with so much information on things to do and places to go. Alley even called us about an hour after we checked in to make sure we found everything okay and to make sure we were happy. GREAT personal customer service that we never got from a cabin rental company. We are planning for a spring trip back to Bearadise!

  • Wonderful !!!!!!

    My wife and I celebrated our 15 year anniversary at Bearadise and we are very glad we did. The decor is top notch and not silly doilies and ducks everywhere. The King size bed with the 3" memory foam topper was like sleeping on clouds. Very comfortable living room furniture as well. The televisions worked very easily. The kitchen was well equipped. I made an amazing beef stew in the giant crock pot.The brand new gas grill worked perfectly. The hot tub rocks and we enjoyed the fire pit immensely. Our dogs loved the property and were smiling the entire time , like we were. We have been to a lot of cabins in the North Georgia mountains over the course of 15 years and Bearadise is by far the best one we have ever rented. 10 minute drive to whatever you need and a BBQ shack on the corner. Awesome. Ron and Alley are more than attentive to what ever your needs or issues may be. We look very forward to staying here again and will recommend it to all of our friends. Remember to stop at a local orchard and pick up some fresh cider. Best you can get. :)

  • Bearadise Cabin Property 438363

    Enjoyed our stay at the "Bearadise" Cabin. The view from the front porch is worth a visit by itself. Swing and rockers are inviting! This cabin has all your needs for a family retreat. Just bring your food and enjoy your stay!

  • Great getaway

    The cabin was just what we needed for a long weekend with our adult sons. Plenty of room, half hour from all we wanted to explore, beautiful seclusion from the busy world we usually occupy. It was just as described and depicted online: charming, clean, comfortable, and well stocked. The decor was beautiful and interesting. Don't miss early mornings on the porch where you will hear the forest awaken and the rushing stream at the base of the mountain. Thanks to the Sandys for a first rate experience!

  • Peaceful secluded cabin in Ellijay

    Wonderful secluded cabin in Ellijay. Close to all the activities in Blue Ridge and Ellijay, we ate in most of the time and just sat on the rocking chairs on the porch and enjoyed the peacefulness of the place. Beds are super comfortable, wonderful selection of movies in case it rains, and also comfy furniture in the living room. Plenty of space for two or three couples. We let our small dog have the run of the property and we still felt he was very safe. Bring a flashlight if you want to walk around at night, it is so dark but the stars are beautiful, totally awesome experience, hope to be back again.

  • No Disappointments

    Our family was impressed with the cabin's cleanliness and spacious accommodations. The owner's paid attention to detail and the furnishings made the cabin a true home away from home, The listing was accurate and the experience surpassed our expectations. The directions provided by the owner were more helpful than our GPS. The general area is suitable for all ages. Our sons went tubing, played golf and rented a boat for the day. A book compiled by the owner provided extensive information for activities, dining and sightseeing.

  • Our visit to Ellijay

    The cabin was perfect for our family. It was like moving into a new home. I could not have asked for a better place to stay. The owner's directions were perfect. The large grass area proved to be perfect for our dog to run about. Please thank the Sandy's for their attention to detail.

  • Getaway Weekend

    This cabin was more than I could hope for. The King size bed was SO comfortable and my dog really enjoyed the large front yard. The property was very clean, although I was concerned about a mouse trap my dog found, and set off. Of course you will find these things in the wilderness, but for a pet friendly cabin, the mouse trap was most definitely not pet friendly. However, we had a great time in the hot tub, grilling, and generally enjoying the peace and quiet the mountain affords! A very short drive the Blue Ridge, we were able to enjoy the Memorial Day arts festival activities as well. I highly recommend.

    Owner Response: Amanda, we are so happy you and your family had a great time at Bearadise Retreat! We are very sorry about your dog finding a mouse trap, we have talked with our cleaners to make sure this won't happen again. You are more than welcome to come back and visit Bearadise again!

  • Perfect getaway

    Every year we stay in a different town for winter or spring break. After 7 years of cabins our whole family agreed we loved Bearadise the best! Quiet, comfortable, relaxing. We spent the days visiting the Ellijay and Blue Ridge area and antiquing then had movie marathons at night. Bearadise has tons of great movies we love and some we haven't seen so it was a treat. The owners are very kind and helpful with any information you require. They even called us the first night to make sure we'd made it ok and see if we needed anything. That's the first time that's ever occurred for us! So very personable. The beds are soft and large. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a great meal. The living room is cozy with the fireplace and tv perfectly placed so you can enjoy both. Lots of movies and games. We played checkers, trivial pursuit and clue. This is the perfect cabin if you want to leave the world behind and reconnect with your family. This cabin would be great for anyone. With 3 bedrooms you have lots of space for your kids or a girls weekend away. Pet lovers - We brought our 2 small dogs so that was great. The cabin is pet friendly and there were no crazy fees to bring them. Romantic getaway - The master bedroom is huge and so is the master bath. The hot tub is large and faces the mountains so a beautiful view. We would definitely recommend this cabin to our friends and family!

  • Wonderful Cabin with great warmth and comfort for all

    We stayed at this cabin from 2/21/2013 through 2/23/2013 and let me say that was not enough time to enjoy all the things available in this cabin. The hot tub, the fireplace and oh that big ole bed in the master retreat. We had room for us and our four extra pillows required for good sleeping. We shared the house with my daughter, her husband and her three children and of course miss Tia, our four legged child. She loved the place and the kids were in heaven with all the movies available to them and us. We played multiple games of war with all the card decks and had such a good time. One thing I must say that was a "super surprise" was the bottle of champange in the frig when we arrived. Cold and waiting for us. It was so loved by all adults that it forced someone down the mnt for another bottle. We also had wine and homemade lemon cello. Gosh we had such a good time and it was big enough for everyone to have their own space when needed. We hiked up both the trails with everyone and then just took the two younger kids and man did they have fun..Their rock collection is much bigger thanks to the days at this cabin. If you are looking for a place to call heaven for a few days or more, just click on the reserve button and you will hear back from Ron and his wife very quickly. They answered all my questions and even called to make sure we arrived ok. They pamered us from start to finish. We will be back to this cabin again. I am ready now. Enjoyed the stay so much. Thanks you guys.

  • Beautiful Mountain Retreat

    The cabin was gorgeous, the decor was cozy, and everything was sparkling clean! Directions were very accurate and we had no problems finding the cabin. The photos can not possibly meet the beauty of the views from the front porch. The beds were so comfortable, I didn't want to get up! I would recommend this property to anyone, not just friends and family. The only criticism I had is that there is not enough cooking essentials provided. For instance, there is a coffee maker but no coffee. We brought our own, so no big deal, but there was no sugar. Or flour. And some cooking oil or spray would've been nice to have. I will definitely remember to bring all the essentials next time I visit. And there will definitely be a next time!

    Owner Response: Stephanie, Thank you for your wonderful suggestions! We have now added cooking spray, a full spice rack and individual 10 cup premium coffee packs for each guest to enjoy. We hope to see you again soon!

  • Family retreat

    We really enjoyed having a comfortable and home like environment to stay for 2 weeks with the family as our home was undergoing repairs.

  • Best Family Thanksgiving Retreat

    This was the BEST family Thanksgiving (2012) Retreat. The photos do not do it justice. It was a real mountain top cabin. The owners were fantastic and the cabin was very neat and clean. Our family included me, my sister and her 2 teen (13 & 15) girls, grandma(81) & our family dog. Everyone including the dog had a wonderful time. Beardise had something for everyone. Grandma, who walks with a cane, had a very easy time getting around the house, property, and firepit, because it was handicap accessible. The dog was able to run without a leash, and the mountain top provided a natural barrier for the dog. There were over 100 DVD's to watch for the girls to watch. The heated outdoor jacuzzi was a big hit especially with the cool night air. We had a bonfire in the firepit and roasted hot dogs and s'mores almost every night. The drinking water was delicious, cold & fresh from the mountain top. The cabin was centrally located and made it very easy to tour the area. A major grocery store was 5 minutes by car. Our 2 favorite tourist spots were Amicola Falls, which has an easy handicap access at the bottom of the falls (ask at the park entrance). The other spot was Helen, GA., an Alpine Village nested in the mountains. It was about 1 hour to Helen, but well worth the time to get there. Helen is really a "Do Not Miss" spot. We all had a wonderful time. It was one of our best vacations ever. The cabin and scenery were spectacular. I would highly recommend it to anyone. The owners were fantastic.

  • Your attention to detail is over the top.

    Dear Ron, Just wanted to say "Thank You" for the weekend at your cottage (I really like the new name: "Bearadise"). Once again, we had to cut it a bit short for family obligations, but we still got 3 nights of relaxation and peace - and it was heaven. My wife (Nancy) has been sleep-deprived for 2 months helping with a new grandbaby born 2 months too early and at NICU at MCG since September. She slept for over 12 hours every night! Just what she needed. We took long walks, read good books and grilled a couple of steaks one night. It's been ages since we've had a chance to do that. God bless you, my friend. Your place is terrific and your attention to detail is over the top. All my best,

  • Given us the refreshing that we really needed!

    This trip was so wonderful for us as a couple. It was a chance to re-connect & let the cares of the world GO! Bearadise was so relaxing and we enjoyed the wonderful nature! Just sitting out on the porch in the rocking chair with a cup of coffee and listening to all that God has created has given us a refreshing that we really needed. We love it so much we are planning again for our next visit. Thank you so much for this lovely secluded place. The house was immaculate... so hats off to the housekeeper. Thank you for the time & this place. BTW- The hot tub was WONDERFUL (ask my husband) :-)

  • What Wonder Memories!

    We sooo enjoyed our family trip to Bearadise. The trees were beginning to change; the weather was fabulous. We visited downtown Ellijay, downtown Blueridge and the B.J. Reece Orchard. What wonderful Memories!

  • Ladies getaway in Bearadise

    We six femailes had a great time at "Bearadise". (Great-Grandmother, Grandmother, Daughter & Granddaughters + Ginger the Chihuahua). We have enjoyed the nature surrounding Bearadise - The deer, turtle, squirrels, lizards, hummingbirds & a pheasant with her young. We took a day to Ellijay and Blueridge but hurried back to to Bearadise to relax and roast hot dogs & Marshmallows and to take a soak in the hot tub. Thanks to the family that has shared Bearadise with us.

  • Honeymoon in Bearadise

    My husband and I loved the beautiful cabin and mountain view. This was our honeymoon and we loved spending our time together in the mountains. The hot tub was so fun and everything was wonderful. We plan on coming back for one of our anniversary celebrations. We loved it!

  • A truly peaceful & beautiful way to celebrate...

    Thank you for this lovely cabin. It was a truly peaceful & beautiful way to celebrate our 40th anniversary! Thanks again!


    This is our fifth trip to the North Georgia Mountains. We usually stay in Coosawattee River Resort but have always felt like it as too much of a subdivision feel. So, we took a chance and rented through Ron & Alley. The cabin was spotless and so clean we felt like we were the first ones to come visit! This cabin had everything we needed and wanted for a mountain getaway. In addition, we loved all of there decorations and furnishings. The pictures online were exactly as the cabin was. We had some minor items that we had to call Alley on (all of which were our fault) and she immediately handled our concerns. We were blown away at the excellent level of service! We would definitely recommend your cabin to others and stay again when we are in the area. Thank you, Ron & Alley!!!

    Owner Response: Thanks for the kind words Max, you, Jane and the kids are welcome back anytime!
