Bear Pause is a great and cozy little get away cabin, perched over the natural sights and overwhelming sounds of cascading water below. The sounds of the water will soothe you and leave you in a state of mountain bliss as you rest around the cabin. This Blue Ridge, GA waterfront cabin rental is only about 25 feet from the waters edge and the sounds of the water is loud enough to hear even while inside the cabin. The location of Bear Pause is excellent as it's only about 8-10 minutes from Historic Downtown Blue Ridge, the Toccoa River and Lake Blue Ridge but you feel like you are in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains all by yourself.

There are also many other outdoor activities that are not far from the cabin, white water rafting with Raft One on the Ocoee River, horseback riding in Cashes Valley with Adventure Trail Rides, tubing with Shallowford Bridge Tube Rentals and outdoor adventure hiking trails are all within 15 minutes of the cabin as well. For hiking enthusiasts, the Benton McKay trail actually border the property at Bear Pause. The Benton McKay Trail is one of the longest spurs off of the Appalachian Trail. The cool waters of the cabin's waterfront Laurel Creek invite wading and it's a great spot for children to play in. Enjoy some great relaxation while soaking in the hot tub on the separate porch. The nights are wonderful for star gazing.

Just a few short minutes from the cabin is Downtown Blue Ridge, enjoy a ride on The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, browse your way through the cute shops, enjoy a great meal at some of the local restaurants such as Harvest on Main and Christy Lee's Courtyard Grille and enjoy a great desert from the award winning Sweet Shoppe of Blue Ridge. While in the Blue Ridge GA area, please take the time to enjoy a wonderful day while breathing in the fresh mountain air. This Blue Ridge cabin rental, Bear Pause, will make a great place for your next mountain getaway to relax or invent adventure.



This Blue Ridge Mountain Cabin Rental is located approximately 10 minutes from Downtown Blue Ridge, GA. The cabin is on Laurel Creek, in the Cherry Log, GA area, which is very close to the USFS, Adventure Trail Rides for Horseback Riding, Blue Ridge Canopy Adventures, Firewire Zip Lines and Lake Blue Ridge.

They were very pleasant and knowledgeable.
We loved Bear Paws and will return again. The porch and the creek make the property so relaxing. You are close to town if you need to go, but we loved staying at the cabin. Our grandkids didnt want to leave the cabin at all.

I spoke to Paul Gibble regarding our stay. He was very helpful and friendly in making sure we were ok with everything during our stay. This was our first time booking with GMCR and hopefully will not be our last. Everything about our getaway was easy to plan and understand. I handled most everything but the website and email but the morning of our stay Georgia was hit by an unexpected snow storm. Paul Gibble called us early to check on us and let us know about the conditions in Blue Ridge. I let him know once we arrived in town and due to the weather conditions he allowed us to check in early so we could settle in before the snow got too bad! Great customer service!!!!
We loved every minute of our stay there. We definitely were not ready to leave and wished we had more time to relax. The cabin exceeded our expectations. It was perfect for our weekend getaway. The description and pictures did a great job of letting us know what to expect and we felt it was better than described.

We arrived after check in hours so we did not meet staff. However, I received a phone call to check and make sure we were enjoying the cabin. Lindsay was very friendly on the phone and the call was appreciated.
We enjoyed our stay very much. I have already recommended it to friends who are interested in a getaway.

Went into the office a couple of times. We were on vacation when we heard that our home in Savannah, GA was in the hurricane path and had to evacuate. Went to the office to extend stay in cabin in Blue Ridge and also ask some questions about the area. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly.
Wonderful. My husband, dachshund and I will definitely return. The cabin was in perfect shape and located close to town. Really like the stream which flows in front of the cabin. Also like that is is pet friendly. Our little dog liked it too.

We worked with Amanda at check in and she was super sweet and so helpful! The directions the GMC were very easy to follow and then the directions to the cabin were great. We found it super easy and Amanda was so nice & helpful when we arrived to check in and get our packet for the cabin.
We had a great much needed relaxing trip to Blue Ridge, Bear Pause was a cute little cabin that was on a flowing creek and so close to everything. It was so easy to find but pretty private, the cabin was easy to get to with no problems for a car. We really had a great vacation and can't wait to go back to the area!

Both members at the check-in/check-out were very kind and customer service oriented. Kelly specifically at check-in. She let me have the keys so I wouldn't have to come back to the office, since we arrived early. And I promised her we wouldn't go to the cabin until 4, and we didn't even get there until after 5. Also, I am pretty sure she heard how my kids really enjoy the hot tub and called up to the cleaning crew to make sure they turned up the heat, so it was ready to enjoy as soon as we got there. Thank you Kelly!! And at check out Amber was talking to someone but stopped and acknowledged me and when she found out I was checking out just took my keys and asked a few questions about our stay, knowing my transaction was only seconds. I work in customer service and it is a pleasant surprise to find people/companies that practice excellent customer service like your two people did. We are looking to come back up there in the fall and will definitely have your company and Bear Pause at the top spot of our list, assuming the cabin is available. Thanks again and have a great day.
