This cabin features a lovely screened-in covered porch, private master suite porch, and two additional porches for plenty of outdoor living space.

All this makes Buck Valley Lodge the perfect spot to relax and gaze out at the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains.

“Perfect Getaway”

Reviewed 15 Nov 2016

My family loved staying at Buck Valley Lodge and didn't want to leave. The cabin is beautifully rustic decorated. Excellent condition in every detail. Large windows with fabulous views, lots of wildlife especially deer. We had plenty of nice dishes, towels, wine glasses, everything we needed for our group. 4 balconies with chairs for relaxing. Easy walk down to the river to explore. The owners made the entire process easy and had everything organized for our arrival. It was clean, comfortable, perfect location, and relaxing for our family.

“Great weekend at a great cabin”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2016

Spent this past weekend with family celebrating a milestone birthday for my son. House is just beautiful & decorated with rustic charm. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to serve our needs. House has several decks to enjoy beautiful views and quiet time or have a rambunctious game of pool. Owners are a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely recommend this home away from home.

Buck Valley Lodge was one of the most peaceful experiences that I've had. The cabin offered all the amenities needed for staying in and enjoying time alone or going out to explore with family and/or friends. It was cleaned thoroughly and very spacious, The beautiful view of sunrise and sunset was breathtaking, as there are plenty windows and porches surrounding the cabin. Ron and Alley were very friendly and helpful with any information needed about the location. My girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

“Cozy roomy cabin”

Reviewed 29 May 2015

We arrived late at night and upon walking into the cabin that had a refreshing sent, it was only the beginning of a lovely spacious stay. The cabin was well stocked in the kitchen and each of the bedrooms were nicely furnished and comfortable. With two adult daughters and two teenage sons, we found the space to be perfect! Having the use of the pools, clubhouse, tennis courts and workout room made the stay that much more enjoyable. I can't forget the fire pit we used late at night to roast mash mellows and tell ghost stories. This is a wonderful well decorated, clean, spacious and cozy cabin. The owners where extremely responsive to any and all our needs. Looking forward to another stay here soon.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Mary Z Said: My family and I had such a great time at Buck Valley Lodge. We have stayed at the owners other cabin in the past and loved it so we thought we'd give this one a try. It did not disappoint at all. There was so much room to spread out and all of the furniture and beds were extremely comfortable. I have to find out where they get the pillows from, they are incredible! The cabin was extremely clean and had everything we needed. We loved sitting out on the decks and sipping our morning coffee then taking a short walk down to the river. The kids loved going to the indoor pool and playing for hours as well as playing in the game room. We did a winery tour one day and hiked to the waterfall. We love this area and will be back soon to stay at Bearadise or Buck Valley!
