The Aska Adventure Lodge is located in the sought after Aska Adventure area and is conveniently located less than five minutes from the quaint town of Blue Ridge, Georgia, the Toccoa River and Lake Blue Ridge. It is close to everything you’d want, but tucked away with all the privacy you’d expect from a mountain vacation retreat.
Aska is the Cherokee Native American word for "winter retreat," however, this cabin is perfect in every season. Hike right from the expansive wraparound porch, up the hill and connect with the Benton MacKaye Trail. Or, take advantage of the many popular area waterfalls and great tubing and canoeing activities.
Inside the home’s professionally decorated and richly appointed great room, expansive glass windows are strategically positioned to overlook the breathtaking and panoramic Aska Adventure area mountains. Enjoy the sectional leather seating, dining for eight at the expansive dining table placed by the windows for even more expansive views. The large kitchen is completely stocked with all of the cooking and serving accoutrements one would need for a cozy or big group meal.
After a great day of fishing in the area’s many cold water streams and rivers, you can retire to the appropriately-themed “Trout Camp” master suite. Located upstairs, this beautiful room is filled with fine rustic décor and local artist paintings. It has its own private deck and an enormous king size white cedar log bed, loaded with pillows and throws and outfitted in luxurious 500 thread count sheets to ensure a comfortable and tranquil slumber. The private master bath is appointed with a double vanity, Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, and a romantic chandelier for perfect mood lighting. There is also an adjoining loft which offers a well stocked lending library making it a great retreat for a cozy read. This loft also offers a full-size futon that can be ideal for kids who might prefer to sleep in close proximity to their parents.
“The Cowgirl Hangout” is the second master suite theme that was designed to accommodate guests who like to stay up later and hibernate until late morning. It is specially decorated in a Western theme featuring a log-crafted king size bed, nightstands crafted from authentic Jack Daniels whiskey barrels and has an adjoining western themed bathroom to boot.
It wouldn’t feel right to be in the North Georgia mountains without a bear or two in the third themed bedroom located off of the main floor. It has a plush, pillow-top queen size, wrought-iron bed, hand carved furnishings from local mountain artisans, a large walk-in closet, a lending library of its own and an adjoining, private bathroom.
Aska Adventure Lodge is the perfect place and setting to clear the mind and steal away on vacation with your friends or family. Here, overlooking the mountains and upward to the sky-blue heavens, take in the crisp, clean air that rejuvenates the spirit.
