About Bud Ketterl
We're a family of four, my wife and I have a son and a daughter in high school. We moved to Knoxville, TN from the Atlanta metro area two years ago with a job opportunity. We have been rescuing German Shepherd Dogs over the last 20 years and currently have three. We spent almost twenty years in the Acworth, GA area before heading to Knoxville. Before that, my wife and I grew up in Connecticut. We met in high school and then again later in life when we started dating. We've just celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary this past June.
Bud Ketterl purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Bud Ketterl chose Blue Ridge
Our family purchased the cabin a few years ago after renting it for several years before that. We fell in love with the cabin and its amazing views, the town of Blue Ridge, its natural beauty, the people and all there is to do there. We hope to retire in Blue Ridge eventually, it is just a whole new way of life there.
What makes this Cabin unique

Thanks for the review!
Communication with the owner from start to finish was top notch. The cabin was very clean and well equipped. The view was amazing. I will for sure rent this cabin for our family get togethers.
Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed the place!
I recommend without hesitation- everything was as described and shown, and the view is amazing. Our small kids loved it as did our older relatives. Thank you.

There are a number of things to do in Blue Ridge. From antiquing to restaurants to riding the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. There are festivals, to 'Arts in the Park', to a community theater. There are orchards where you can pick your own apples. There is even 'The Swan', which is one of three drive-in movie theaters in the state. For the outdoor lovers, the Benton McKaye trail crosses over the cabins mountain. From hiking to fishing - you can rent a boat and fish on Lake Blue Ridge or fish form the shore to trout fishing in the trout capital of Georgia. You can hang at the beach and BBQ or just take in the breathtaking views form the cabin.
Without a doubt, the best website for current events in the area is the Chamber of Commerce website, as it has calendars of things that are going on no matter what time of year you visit.
