“Wonderful cabin - great location”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I recently spent a long weekend at this cabin with my parents, sister, husband, and children. Everyone loved it, even the dog. The cabin is very large and spacious and had everything we needed and then some. The furniture was clean and comfortable and the kitchen was beautiful. The back wrap-around porch has a huge gas grill on it, patio table and chairs, and of course, the hot tub. We spent a good majority of our stay on the patio. We really had no trouble with bugs other than what's expected in the mountains. The walk down to the river was a bit steep, but my children (ages 6, 11, 14) were able to go up and down it just fine. I can imagine with a lot of rain it might get messy though. We also really enjoyed having the Scenic Railroad right behind the cabin. It would go by (silently) @ 4 times a day and the kids would stand outside and wave at everyone on the train. The one disappointment in the cabin was the pool/air hockey table in the basement. It was not in very good shape so we weren't really able to enjoy it. But with the river right behind us, the railroad, the hot tub, and the close proximity to downtown Blue Ridge, it wasn't a big deal. Everyone had a great time and we would definitely stay here again!

“Cabin is nice, but....”
Reviewed 16 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The cabin is nice enough, but there are a few reasons I would not select this cabin again for future stays. First, the river is some distance from the cabin and is down a steep hill to get there. I feel the pictures are a little misleading and it is not very convenience for young children and I would imagine anyone that is elderly. Also, once you reach the river, the access is difficult as there is a steep drop off to get down to the river. A dock on the river would be helpful (as many of the other cabins seem to have and now I know why). Second, the floor of the master shower was fairly dirty and looked as they it needed a thorough cleaning, as well as the tub in the second bathroom. Finally, we experienced pests problems from the moment we arrived. There were wasps (5 as soon as we arrived) and more showed up each day inside of the cabin. On the second day, we there were ants that showed up in the master bathroom and the kitchen. We ended up leaving a day early primarly due to the ant issue, as we just couldn't eat in the kitchen and were disgusted by it.

“Pretty cabin but not as advertised”
Reviewed 25 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

Let's start with the obvious:

1. This cabin is NOT located in Blue Ridge but you don't find that out until you have drive 15 minutes Northwest of Blue Ridge but by the time you get there you've already paid to stay there and you can't get your money back.

2. Located on the Toccoa River? Nice try. The pictures lie. The cabin is probably 300 feet from the river and one of our personal favorites....

3. You have to cross an active railroad track to get there! That's after you have walked
down a step, washed out hill.

We did enjoy the hot tub but decided the town so far away it was easier to cook ourselves. We will not be returning to Runabout Trout.

Management Response
25 Feb 2012
First, we would like to thank you for the opportunity to accomodate your party. Runabout Trout is in Blue Ridge, GA. It is not in downtown, but on the outskirts of town. It is clearly stated on our website that this property is conveniently located between Blue Ridge and McCaysville, GA. It is within 15 minutes of downtown. Runabout Trout Lodge is a Toccoa River property. It boasts 130 feet of frontage. The pictures on our website are actual pictures of the cabin and its land. We have since added a few more details to our description to address your concerns. Additionally, there is a railroad track on the property that hosts the Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad. However, the track is NOT active this time of year. The train does not start their season until March 12, 2012.
