These properties do not allow any dogs over 60 lbs overall, with certain properties having a lesser weight limit (please inquire about those properties) and we do not allow more than 2 dogs per property. Any pets must be pre-registered. If a property is designated “pet friendly” there will be a $35 fee if a pre-registered pet occupies the property.

No, we are in the mountains Roads can be steep, curvy, graveled, rutted, and not all are paved. Many of the roads leading to the cabins are gravel 1-lane roads.  The vast majority are easily accessible, however, with any normal car, SUV, or truck (unless stated on the cabin listing).  Low profile vehicles or sports cars are not recommended for properties with gravel roads. Generally, Downtown Blue Ridge is all paved and fairly level for driving/accessing. Not all roads will be wide enough for two vehicles, some roads are only 1-lane -- these can be gravel or paved 1-lane roads. 

RVs are not recommended for accessing any property - please inquire with agents for specific property.

Motorcycles: While some roads may offer paved roads, the road still not be recommended for driving motorcycles to the property - please inquire with agents for specific property.

Trailers: Only certain properties are available to bring a small trailer too, please inquire with agents. We have many cabins that do have paved access if needed. 


Friendly note: Please keep in mind local opinions of what be would considered "gentle" or "not very steep" may be different that yours. We are transparent and honest with our guests in all aspects, but it is sometimes difficult to gauge what guests consider "steep" or "not steep" as guests opinions, personal experiences, and point of views differ greatly. Please do keep in mind when you visit our area, (Fannin County/Blue Ridge) you may experience various elevations from what are considered flat/gentle and extremely steep/curvy/narrow. You may come for many years experiencing only what you deem as "not very steep" and then return the next time with new guests to a different location to experience what you may feel is very steep. Guests rarely report issues with access roads to our properties as we are very upfront about each cabins access road and we list which cabins require 4x4 access very clearly. 


We look forward to accomodating you soon!

Properties generally offer a gas log fireplace, wood burning fireplace and sometimes both. Each property will indicate the fireplace on its listing page. 

Fireplaces are in use from October 1st to April 30th. (Cooler months)

Fireplaces cannot be used from May 1st to September 30th. (Warmer Months)


An initial supply of firewood is provided at properties with wood-burning fireplaces, during the fall and winter months. After the initial supply is used, additional wood is the responsibility of the guest.  Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside, unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit. Some properties are very close to the woods, and building a fire outside of a designated area is very dangerous and is against the law. No firewood is provided during the spring and summer months of May through September. 


Generally, you may be able purchase firewood locally as well, year round at most conveience stores, grocery stores, or roadside firewood suppliers. 

We provide check out instructions for you in your check in package. The check out instructions are a very simple check list for each guest to follow upon departure. These are also listed in your rental agreement so you will see them in advance. 

You can purchase beer and wine at the local grocery stores and convenience stores, but liqour is not available at any stores for purchase. Several local restaurants also serve beer and wine. Ellijay, Georgia (Gilmer County) is 15 miles south of Blue Ridge and does sell liquor.  

Restaurants within Blue Ridge city limits serve beer and wine by the drink. You can purchase liqour and any other type of alcohol either in Ellijay, Georgia or Murphy, North Carolina.

Most all of Mountain Top Cabin Rentals properties will offer an outside hot tub as an amenity. Generally, only the specialty properties we manage such as Gleesome Inn on Lake Blue Ridge, JME Retreat at the Cohutta Reserve, and our Downtown Blue Ridge Rentals will not offer a hot tub. This will be listed on each properties page if it offers a hot tub.

We are very particular about the cleanliness of our cabins and our hot tubs!  The hot tubs are completely drained after every single rental. The filters are taken out and cleaned, and the hot tub is completely wiped down and cleaned with professional cleaners.  The hot tub is then filled with fresh water and fresh chemicals. 

Blue Ridge is a beautiful area with activities and adventures for all ages.  You can simply relax and take in the breathtaking views and vistas, or you can partake in all of the action and adventure Blue Ridge has to offer.  Take a nostalgic train ride into Tennessee on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, do some shopping in downtown Blue Ridge, catch a fish in one of our pristine streams or rivers, hike through the Cohutta Wilderness, take a lazy river float down the Toccoa River, battle the rapids while Whitewater Rafting, take a stroll through the woods on horseback, zip through the treetops on a Canopy tour, soar through the sky on a helicopter tour, sip some wine and listen to great live music at a local winery, enjoy a live production at the Blue Ridge Community Theater, or go boating, canoeing, or kayaking!  There are endless opportunities for fun and adventure in Blue Ridge, and we would love to share it with you!
