The owner of this Georgia mountain cabin rental named it for her mother, an ovarian cancer survivor who spent time there, recovering from treatments. We don’t know for sure whether the beautiful, serene mountain setting helped her heal, but it’s easy to see why Forever Joy has a profound effect on everyone that visits.
This large and stunning tri-level showplace with wraparound decks and soaring ceilings has magnificent unobstructed seasonal mountain views and Lake Blue Ridge is less than 2 miles away.. Elegantly decorated with all the amenities of an exclusive resort, it’s a private retreat for you to share with family or friends on vacation you won’t soon forget.
Located five miles from downtown Blue Ridge, Forever Joy is as impressive inside and out, with no less than four stone fireplaces, two wood-burning ones on each outdoor deck, and gas fireplaces in the family room and the basement. The rooms are bright and airy, letting in light from huge picture and floor to ceiling windows, and the screened-in porch beckons you to settle into a couch or rocker to relax, fire up the gas grill, or soak your cares away in the hot tub, which has room for eight.
Meal preparation is a pleasure in the state of the art kitchen that’s appointed with black appliances, black wood cabinets, granite countertops, electric stove/oven, refrigerator with icemaker and a Keurig coffee maker. The dining area seats six, with space for two more at the breakfast bar.
Each of the three comfortable bedrooms feature hand-carved custom furniture, including the upstairs master with a king bed, deck access, private bath with Jacuzzi tub, and flat screen TV with cable and Blu-Ray player. The main floor bedroom has a queen bed, deck access, and adjacent bath with walk-in tiled shower and washer/dryer, and the basement bedroom has a full over twin bunk bed, perfect for kids or teens. There’s also a queen-size sleeper sofa in the basement, bringing the total accommodations to nine.
For entertainment, Forever Joy has a fully equipped game room with a pool table, ping-pong top and air hockey on reverse side, board games, an Xbox 360 system and games, mobile bar and wireless Internet throughout the house. There are flat screen TVs with cable and Blu-Ray in the game room and family room, where there’s a surround sound system for your listening pleasure.
Of course, you’ll want to take advantage of all the Aska Adventure Area has to offer, whether it’s canoeing and kayaking on the Toccoa River, boating on Lake Blue Ridge (there’s a boat ramp within minutes drive if you’ve got your own), hiking the trails or swimming at Morganton Point for lots of outdoor fun. The shops and restaurants of Blue Ridge are just minutes away, and it’s less than an hour’s drive to Georgia’s wonderful wineries, like Crane Creek Winery & Vineyards in Young Harris near Blairsville.
The cabin’s paved driveway is a nice bonus and you’re welcome to bring small, well-behaved dogs along to share your getaway with you. If you’re looking for a relaxing, joyful, one-of-a-kind vacation destination, Forever Joy is the perfect choice.
