Why us

A Justa Cabin rental is a perfect place to relax and unwind for a long weekend or a family vacation in the beautiful North Georgia mountains. Our peaceful mountain cabin offers a private natural setting, great for taking in the wildlife such as deer, wild turkeys and hummingbirds. Or perhaps picking blackberries on the property, relaxing on one of our rocking chairs while listening to the calming branch on the property, or even roasting s'mores on the fire pit. One visit and you too will find out why my family and I fell in love with Justa Cabin and had to make it our own.


Nearby to Brasstown Bald, the Appalachian Trail, Chattahoochee National Forest, pristine lakes, state parks, countless waterfalls, hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting, tubing, swimming, cycling, horseback riding, golfing, gem mining, antiquing, scenic mountain drives on the Russell-Brasstown Scenic Byway, and much more.

Campbell Folk School Fall Festival and Craft Auctions, Georgia Mountain Fair, Wildflower Festival, Rhododendron Festival, Fall Festival, Oktoberfest , Arts in the Park, to name just a few.


Being Florida natives, it seems like we have one season all year called Summer! Blairsville's four distinct seasons are the primary reason we fell in love with the area. Whether its the beautiful blossoms of spring, enjoying the crystal clear lakes and streams in the summer, gazing at the amazing fall foliage in autumn, or cooling off on a crisp peaceful winter day. Pick your favorite or better yet, Try Them All!

Meet the owners

Justa Cabin is truly a family (love) affair. The cabin is operated by Jesse and Jane Richardson, however we are only part owners. My entire wife's family also co-own the property, all of us living in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. After all of us had been vacationing throughout the years in north Georgia and western North Carolina, we all seemed to keep coming back to the Blairsville area. So in November of 2005, we finally decided to go all in and purchase a cabin we could all share and enjoy together with our families. We spent many hours searching online and several days of viewing properties in the area. As we pulled up to Justa Cabin, something just clicked. The cabin had the perfect blend of nature and privacy without being totally isolated in the middle of the woods. I mean, we still need to go to Walmart and Home Depot!

Owners: Jesse and Jane Richardson, Ray and Kathe Vega, Paul and Marion Rowe, & Ray and Cindy Vega

    Justa Cabin is NOT just a cabin! It was the most relaxing getaway...

    This was our first stay at Justa Cabin. We chose it, in part, because of all the amazing reviews from past guests. We have been staying in the area for several years now, and this is definitely one of our favorites! It is, by far, the most stocked cabin and is ready for their guests to enjoy. We could have even found something in the pantry for dinner and not had to venture out to the store the first night if we chose. It was so peaceful and quiet. The old white dog "Elby" was by every morning (as soon as we turned the lights on) for a doggie biscuit (or bacon, sausage or hot dogs lol). There were so many games to play. We played several, as well as some pool downstairs. Wish it were cooler outside so we could have enjoyed the fireplace. The fire pit was wonderful. The kids got to roast hot dogs and marshmallows for smores. I loved just sitting on the back porch, listening to the quiet, smelling the mountain air. So perfect. We definitely would love to plan another trip to Justa Cabin in the near future!!

    Loved our time at Justa Cabin!! The cabin was amazing, with something for everyone. We will be back!!

    We had a blast! The cabin was very clean and stocked with everything imaginable, even a Crock-Pot (I won't take mine next time). I will highly recommend this cabin to our family and friends. Very family friendly, even with the stairways and our 2 yr old grandson. Owner made sure we were aware if the two sets of stairs. Door in kitchen closes to close off the set leading downstairs to washer/dryer, downstairs bed and pool table. We took baby gates so we could leave door open during the day and placed the second gate at bottom of loft stairway (moved gate to top at night). Worked so well, and owner and property we're so nice, we left one gate for other families and ourselves for return trips. Owner was easy to communicate with. Property was AMAZING!! Price was very reasonable . Hearing our 5 yr old grandson FaceTime his Dad, telling him how awesome the trip and cabin we're... Priceless!! Smores by the fire pit. Flashlight tag. Pool tournaments. Checkers. Tons of board games. Steaks off the grill. Lots of laughs and wonderful memories made. Worth. Every. Mile.

    Justa Cabin - Wonderful place to stay!!

    This cabin is beautiful, peaceful, comfortable, and well equipped. It is exactly as the pictures show and exceptionally clean and well maintained. Everything was as advertised. It was comfortable, convenient and affordable. We truly enjoyed staying here, and would stay again, had everything we needed and more (great bed sheets, comforters, and mattresses) The cabin is just secluded enough, it was just perfect! Justa Cabin is very private and all that you hear are the birds singing. The cabin is located a short drive to all stores and National Parks. We visited Helen, Vogel National Park, Sunburst Adventures, and many other attractions. Everything that you need to cook with in the kitchen is provided. Our family had a wonderful time and slept very soundly in this wonderful and peaceful retreat. Thank you Richardson Family. We absolutely loved the cabin and would definitely stay here again!
