About the property

5BR/3BA, Sleeps12, HotTub, Huge Porch & Patio w/Firepit, Child Amenities, Paved

Welcome to our home!

Reconnect with friends or family for a fun-filled weekend, or spend a leisurely week enjoying the hiking of beautiful Blue Ridge, Georgia.

Synopsis: The road and driveway are paved to our front door. We have 4 private queen bedrooms, and a bunk room that's great for kids. We're completely kid friendly with optional bedrails, baby gates, and even a high chair available. Cooking is easy with a fully equipped kitchen and Weber gas grill. Huge covered porches, a 6 person hot tub, corn hole, horseshoes, tetherball, and a huge stone patio with a fire pit make Hid 'n' Timber a great place for socializing outdoors. We're 7 miles from the conveniences of town, 1.5 miles from Aska hiking & biking, a quarter mile from Blue Ridge Lake, and 3 miles from the Toccoa River (3 kayaks available for loan); there's truly not a more convenient location in North GA for outdoor enthusiasts.

This is a perfect getaway for the avid or occasional outdoors-person! Situated in the heart of Georgia's Aska Adventure area, some of the country's premier hiking, mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking is just moments away from the front door. Spend a long day busy with endless activities, and come back and relax in a comfortable lodge filled with things to do after dark.

We have a fully equipped kitchen, a bar for once the kids are asleep, and board games for kids of all ages. Wake up and enjoy your morning coffee on one of our three covered porches surrounded by the sounds of nature.

There are 3 full bathrooms, and four private bedrooms have comfortable Queen sized beds. The fifth bedroom has 4 bunk beds for the kids to share- it's away from the other bedrooms, so the adults will never hear the fun they are having! The master has it's own porch to relax in privacy, as well as a jetted tub to relax away the soreness of a long hike.

Our home is just a quarter mile to private access to Lake Blue Ridge, so bring your canoes!

ASKA TRAILS AREA: This area contains a 17-mile hiking and mountain biking trail system located on national forest land near Deep Gap and Stanley Gap south of Blue Ridge. Trails ascend to near 3,200 feet, providing vistas of mountain ridges, and descend to the shores of beautiful Lake Blue Ridge. They also pass through coves of mature hardwoods as well as traversing thickets of laurel and rhododendron.

HIKING: There are plenty of trails for everyone- easy to strenuous, young to old. The Aska Trails area is just 1.5 miles from the driveway to the trail head! This includes Stanley Gap, Green Mountain, and Flat Creek Loop. Not to mention the Rich Mountain And Cohutta Wilderness areas are just a short drive away!

MOUNTAIN BIKING: Aska Trails, Turkey Farm Loop, and Stanley Creek Rd. are all within 3 short miles! These trails are regarded as some of the best in the South.

CANOEING & KAYAKING: Beautiful rivers abound! Come raft down the Toccoa, kayak the Cartecay, or canoe the Olympic courses of the Ocoee, or just spend the day lounging on Lake Blue Ridge! Don't have your own gear? Outfitters and rentals are all along Aska Rd.

DOWNTOWN BLUE RIDGE: There are plenty of art galleries in downtown Blue Ridge, just 6 miles away, representing an artistic style unique to the Appalachian Mountains. You'll also find craft stores, antiques, cafes, and fine dining restaurants. The Scenic Railway also runs from Blue Ridge to McCaysville, GA, and marks the beginning of the Gold Rush in Georgia.

You won't lack for entertainment at Hid 'n' Timber of Blue Ridge, GA!

About Matt Webster

Matt enjoys hiking and spending time in the mountains for just about any reason. He has three young sons who will have many adventures in the Blue Ridge area.

Professionally, he's an technical account manager and recruiter.

Matt Webster purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Matt Webster chose Necowa Cove

The Webster family has a long tradition of vacationing in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. After relocating to the South decades ago, they finally decided to purchase a home in the equally endeared town of Blue Ridge, Georgia. They have a passion for nature and enjoying it up close and personal, and Blue Ridge, and the Aska Adventure Area was the perfect location to do just that. They sincerely hope that our home allows you to enjoy it the way they do.

What makes this cabin unique

This home is in the perfect place for casual outdoors-people. It's paved all the way to the front steps, and within 3 miles of any kind of hiking, mountain biking or boating. Furthermore, it's the perfect place to entertain, with a huge wrap around porch, and huge stone patio with fire pit.

Although the main attractions are provided by nature in the Blue Ridge, and Aska areas, we've enjoyed many a rainy weekend playing cards and board games, or even cornhole on the large porch.

Amazing cabin

This cabin was perfect for our group. It has plenty of space, a nice kitchen and a great area to hang out downstairs. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in visiting Blue Ridge.

Perfect family reunion spot

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place for our large group. Enough space and beds for everyone including my 80 year old mom who doesn't do too many stairs and twenty year olds who enjoyed their own space downstairs. Everything we needed in the kitchen to cook favorite family dishes and outdoor grill worked well too. Matt was quick to respond to every question we had and helped us figure things out. Plenty of blankets and space heaters for a chilly weekend. We enjoyed being here even on a cold somewhat rainy December weekend. Imagine how beautiful it must be during other seasons! Beautiful woods and view to the lake. Easy to drive to get groceries and spend time in shops and restaurants in Blue Ridge. Thank you for giving our family a special place to celebrate and be together!

Beautiful spacious cabin.

  • 5 of 5

The lowest level with bunk beds, games etc. Was worth it alone. The kids were able to have a great time there while the adults could do the same upstairs. The kitchen had everything you could imagine for cooking.
