Nestled between Copperhill and McCaysville, GA in the Blue Ridge Mountains is a new vacation home community — Ocoee Mountain Cottages.

With the help of Bo Olgesby and Dave Toole, this 43-acre site hopes to bring a new type of luxury living in a more affordable way, with the use of modern park mobile homes.

Olgesby said they noticed the Blue Ridge, GA area was becoming crowded and pricey and wanted work around the area by choosing the up-and-coming city of Copperhill.

What does an affordable vacation home mean? Olgesby + Toole broke down the numbers of the surrounding area and said on average, homes are going for $500,000 to $700,000. With Ocoee Mountain Cottages, the homes range from $140,000 to $200,000.

The pair also said to maintain the outdoor living appeal, only about 40% of the entire site will be developed + the rest will be preserved in its natural state.

Each model comes equipped with a full kitchen with modern appliances, spacious rooms, outdoor spaces, electric fireplaces, and are energy efficient. You’ll have opportunities to upgrade the units as well, but let’s take a look at the foundations.
