An hour or so from Atlanta, GA, is the town of Blue Ridge. The name says it all: situated in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains amongst dense forests and picturesque log homes. An just outside of town you will find ASKA LODGE, owned and operated by Ric and Janet. If you worn yourself out on the Appalachian Trail or exhausted yourself fly fishing the Georgia streams, head to this incredible 'home away from home'. The owners spared no expense: from heavy-thread bamboo sheets to fluffy terry robes and home cooked breakfasts rivaling any restaurant menu in town. Ric is a story man. Make sure to get him talking! Janet is a darling who really cares to receive guests and have them leave as friends.
