Welcome to Blood Mountain Cabins & Country Store
The Blood Mountain Cabins are located high in the Appalachian Mountains of North Georgia. Our elevation is over 3000 feet above sea level, by far the highest in the state. The advantages of the high elevation are:
• Beautiful snows in the winter
• Cooler summer temperatures
• Views from the cabins are looking down into the valley rather than looking up at the mountains.
We rarely see a temperature as high as 80°, even when the valleys below are in the mid-90's.

But, the most unique thing about our location is our proximity to the world famous Appalachian Trail and the surrounding wilderness area of the Chattahoochee National Forest. We are sandwiched between and bordered by the Blood Mountain Wilderness Area and the Raven Cliffs Wilderness Area.
Some of our cabins are only a one hundred yard footpath from the Appalachian Trail, which extends over 2000 miles from Georgia to Maine, over the highest peaks of the Appalachian Mountains. A 2½ mile walk on the Appalachian Trail will take you to the top of Blood Mountain, the highest point on the trail in Georgia, and one of the most scenic sites in Georgia.
We are also in the heart of the Georgia waterfall country. In our small country store, we have a gallery of photographs of many of the beautiful waterfalls in the area. There is even a 2½ mile trail from our cabins to five of the waterfalls and there are lots of others only a short drive away.
Located just off US 19/129, we are easy to reach; and highways are well scraped during the winter snows, so you will have no trouble reaching us. There are restaurants and stores in the towns just a few miles away. And, our cabins have all the modern conveniences that you will need, including:
• Free Wi-Fi in the Store
• Central heat and air
• Wood-burning fireplace
• Full kitchen and bath
• Satellite TV
• All linens, toiletries and paper products provided
We even have the unexpected things, like sleds for playing in the snow. If you enjoy the outdoors and want to be in the mountains and really get away from it all, you will enjoy Blood Mountain Cabins. There is no better place for hiking, finding waterfalls, viewing wildlife, and just catching your breath.
